Do You Think with Your Heart?

For most of my life, I’ve been a walking brain.

Yes, I knew I had a heart, somewhere, but I felt more comfortable staying in the logical side of myself.

When I finally connected to my heart for the first time, consciously, it felt so, so good. And the feeling stayed with me for weeks.

That’s when I realized there must be more to life than logical, rational thinking.

The strange thing, though, was I’ve always been extremely intuitive, even when my brain was doing most of the talking.

As I evolved as a person, I learned to connect, to listen and to follow my heart’s advice. This advice is always right to the point, and it never let me get away with anything.

My heart’s voice has nothing to do with my busy brain, and it requires quiet time on a regular basis to make itself heard.

Today when I work with clients, I can spot in two seconds whether they run on their brain’s or their heart’s advice.

The thing that gets most people into trouble is their clever brains.

Our brains are the part of us that speaks too fast, acts too rationally, and squeezes all the joy out of our lives.

Don’t get me wrong. We need our brains to process information. But I believe we shouldn’t allow them to take the driver’s seats in our lives.

So, what’s the secret to accessing your heart?

First and foremost, you must practice listening to it regularly. Develop a habit you do every day. For example, you could try 5 minutes of breath work followed by writing in your journal. Or, you could take a long walk through the woods. What you do isn’t as important as the doing itself.

A fair warning: When you start creating a practice of connecting with your heart, your STUFF will come up. This is good because to have a clear connection to this part of your being, you need to look and deal with your stuff.

There is no way around it. It’s often not easy. In fact, it can be difficult. But, the rewards you receive are oh, so good.

Best of all, you regain your health, well-being and love.

What have you got to lose? Try connecting to your heart and listening to what it has to say.

You might be surprised.

What are you waiting for?

    I loved reading your comments about listening to your heart and not your head as I am about to make a very big decision to quit my job of 13 years and a career I have done for 30 years, to complete my studies in nutrition to finally follow what I feel I was destined to do. When ever I think in my head it tells me I am being stupid giving up a good job when I have a mortgage to pay. My head tell me going to work and paying the bills is the more logical thing to do. But when I think in my heart I am so happy and I can only see a bright new future.
