Have you ever experienced a time when your heart says one thing but your head says something else? Do you listen to your head or your heart?
While we have all seen the benefits of following our hearts, sometimes it is a hard thing to do. We look at what is happening around us and our mind urges us to take action and do something so we stay safe and don’t get hurt. This last week, I had one of those times when I ignored what my heart was saying and reacted to what was happening on the surface. I started to create a story in my head to explain the outer circumstances – a story that made me feel worse not better – and soon had myself completely stressed out! When the dust finally settled and I found out what had really been going on, I discovered that all my worry had been over nothing at all!
I’m guessing most of you have had something like that happen to you too. The mind would rather make something up to believe in rather than sit in “I don’t know.” To save us all future drama, I vote we start letting a different part lead us. Instead of letting our intellect determine what is going on, let’s start listening to our spiritual center – our heart.
So what does that mean exactly? For me, it means that I need to start pausing before reacting emotionally to what is happening in my world. I need to check in with my higher self – with my heart – and ask to be shown what is happening from a spiritual point of view. From this vantage point, I can then choose how to respond and know that the response will be coming from a much more peaceful and balanced space.
Below are a few suggestions on how you can connect to your heart’s wisdom and see from this spiritual point of view:
Be curious: I’ve found that if I look at what is going on from a curious point of view instead of a frightened viewpoint, I am able to detach more from what is happening. Imagine you are a scientist collecting information about the subject at hand. What details are you noticing? What subtleties are being overlooked?
Take three deep breaths and ask for Guidance. Pausing before we react gives time for us to process all of what we are experiencing. As we take three deep breaths and ask for Spiritual Input, we create a distance between ourselves and what is happening. This space can give us the detachment we need to see through the eyes of our heart into the true picture.
Pay attention to your body. I have noticed when I start to believe something that isn’t true, my body becomes tense. If the energy isn’t flowing in your system, it is a clear message from the deeper part of yourself that something which is occurring isn’t coming from love and truth. Even if you don’t know exactly what is false, trust that you don’t have a clear picture if your body is reacting adversely.
Laugh and/or smile. When we laugh and smile, it sends a message to our system that we are safe and well. Even if we aren’t feeling that way in the moment, moving our focus to the state of joy brings us in touch with our heart. After a few moments of laughing, then ask your Angels to help you see the truth of what is going on from that higher viewpoint. From this lighter space, you may find the circumstances look much different.
Trust and have faith. Having faith in the Divine and our Spiritual Support Team is really easy when things are going well. It is when things seem to be heading in a direction we don’t like that it is more difficult to keep the faith. Try asking yourself if you are choosing from love or fear. Also, remind yourself of your overall intention. Do you have an intention in place to be Divinely guided in all you think, say, and do? Are you choosing to create a life you love? If so, then know that what is going on must be part of what you are experiencing. Trust. Believe that you are loved and supported. Watch for the signs that miracles are unfolding for you.
