Three rays of love
Without trust there is no opening for love, therefore trust is always the first and most important ray of any relationship. The basis for trust is loving, honest communication with each other (Truth Talk).
Showing care: We are there for the other soul when they need us, we do our best so that both experience being together as inwardly healing and loving.
Compassionate affection is the third ray. The boundaries between prolonged eye gazing, holding and touching with hands, and exchanging tenderness are fluid.
Love comes when we want to let it. But if even one of the three rays is damaged, then the heart chakra often finds it difficult to open enough.
