Learn more about your heart chakra
Your heart helps you to find your truth and leads to your deeper knowing. When you engage with your heart’s intelligence you gain a counter-balance to what is often an overactive mind, you can find resolve and come to a place of peace and calm within.
Your personal truth is as important to your identity as the skin on your finger tips; your fingerprints are unique. Engaging with your heart and finding the missing parts of your story, more of the truth, allows you to include your soul which is your ultimate and unique self-identity.
- encompasses a greater sphere of information than your mind allows for
- can inform your decisions in support of your soul
- leaves you in no confusion or doubt in any moment of choice
- provides more of your personal truth and your mind comes to rest
Do you know how to listen
It only takes you to have the urge to find an insightful answer, the answer that will heal, the answer that brings you to a place of inner confidence, for you to begin to activate your heart.
Your heart signals to you and makes itself both heard and felt in those quiet moments before dawn, when you should be sleeping but you lie awake considering what to do. Your heart holds a ‘conversation’ with you that can be experienced as an intimate flow of feeling and knowing.
Those of you with a strong connection to your own heart will know exactly what this feels like. For those that regard and even treasure your heart’s direction, you surrender to what your heart delivers. You experience peace and calm, your mind quietens, you achieve a much greater resolve and better outcomes.
Thoughts and words versus the flow
For those who are still answering only to your mind, you might be searching to try and identify when your heart is speaking with you and what it is actually saying. Your mind speaks with you in thoughts and words whilst your heart is a flow of innate feeling and knowing that brings more insight. It may also call your soul into action from the deepest level of your being.
Perhaps it is best to say that your heart is called into action and can communicate when you initiate a search for your truth, when you actively seek to understand what is not immediately known or understood. It comes as you choose to not settle for your immediate thoughts and the answers that present themselves in a rumination. If you can’t settle with the first answers you arrive at, if you need to go beyond what is obvious, if you search more deeply and find answers that hold a greater scope, are richer, and leave you feeling deeply settled you are clearly heading down the path of working with your heart.
If, on the other hand, you are not prepared to consider the nudge to go further and to seek something more, you will not hear your heart at all and merely hear your self-talk and settle for logic instead. Do you recognise yourself to be:
- wanting to fix things for others
- not getting the results you want
You are not at your heart’s intelligence yet. Are you staying safe, are you lazy, or do you have yourself convinced that your logic knows best? When you settle for answers that don’t quite feel right you are missing the scope of intelligence that your heart can provide.
Living life requires more than your logic
It is said that some people have wisdom; they are the ones that seek their heart’s flow and welcome this deeply insightful and personal communication. They have learnt to hear and interpret the flow that comes from their heart. Not only that, they activate their heart’s intelligence simply because they seek more and do not settle for only logic.
There appears to be a gap whereby some people have come to understand ‘heart’ and its abundant ability to guide you in life and others remain lost and still stuck at the logic mind trying to understand how to get to their heart.
Could it be that it is simply easier to deny the intimacy of heart and remain with a more black and white approach of mind? Are you allowing your ego to stay comfortable and your logic to be king or queen as you settle for answers that don’t entail you to take a risk or stretch yourself further?
Use your heart muscle
By striving to listen to what you feel at heart as well as listening to what you think and making this your practice will bring you to a new way of being. Including your heart’s intelligence will be challenging for your mind. Ultimately the mind and heart are a duo that can ideally compliment one another and create balance.
If you care to experience sureness and trust in the steps you take, then it is time to deepen the urge and seek. During those quiet moments before dawn or any other time make space for you and your heart.
Activating your heart:
- listen for that feeling in the background when you are not quite settled with your answer
- pay attention to the urge to resolve this,
- choose not to settle
- Go beyond the obvious
- Seek to understand more
- give yourself quiet time
- trust your heart to find the moment to communicate
- notice how your mind rests when you include your heart
