In our lives, we have constant changes of heart, both large and small. People of all ages have these changes of heart.
Some changes are negative, such as when someone we love dies or when someone betrays our trust. Some changes of heart are positive – when a new goal becomes clear to us, for example, or when trust grows in a new personal relationship.
Some positive changes of heart also trigger a new integration of our being with all that is around us. These positive, integrating changes of heart are sometimes called religious experiences or spiritual experiences.
We do not control or direct our changes of heart. We can be open to the possibility of heart changes. However, our hearts change in their own way and time.
