The more that you read, the more often you hear "live from the heart, go within". What does that actually mean and how do you do it?
What it means is that we need to stop thinking.
Your subconscious mind is like a super computer and it's a record of your past. It keeps you out of this NOW moment by constantly reminding you of the past. It's your ego. It uses logic and logic is based on fear. Our reality is not logical. If it were, then science would have all of this figured out. Fear is the opposite of love.
Before you even open your eyes each morning, try to be in this NOW moment. Take a deep breath and focus on your heart. That will automatically bring you to NOW. It will bring you into your heart space.
Do you realize that the heart is the first thing that is developed in the body? Your heart sends messages to your brain, every moment of every day and it is 5000 times, magnetically stronger than the brain. We are magnetic and we attract like things to us. There is actually a large field of energy that surrounds your heart. It is much more powerful to live from the heart than it is to live from the mind.
Your heart is where your truth is. The heart is where your true feelings are. The mind tells you that you are separate, but your heart will let you know that everything is connected. Because of that, everything that you do has an effect on everything else. If you live from the heart your life will be filled with much more joy. Your heart is that connection to your own soul.
"There is compelling evidence to suggest the physical heart is coupled to a field of information not bound by the classical limits of time and space." ~ HeartMath Institute~
When you live from the heart, you don't have to think. We are allowing our mind to get in the way. This is why you don't have to be smart, you don't have to work hard. Your heart will let you know how you really FEEL.
A while back I thought that I should help someone out, by giving them some money, but it just didn't FEEL right. I thought that I was being a "good person", yet there was something about it that felt "wrong". My soul was sending me a message not to do it. Why wouldn't I want to help someone? One very good reason is that they are on their own path. They're having their own experience to gain wisdom. By helping them, I wasn't allowing them to experience. Check in with your heart first. It's not always a good idea to help everyone. Instead...just love them.
Your soul communicates with you through your heart. Allow your soul to guide you. It knows why you're here. It knows what you're supposed to do. If you follow your heart it will guide you to your true path. It takes you out of fear into love. When you're on your true path, everything that you need will manifest?
When you live from the heart you love, without any expectations. You need nothing in return. You don't expect others to act in a certain way. You don't care what anyone else thinks about you. You love and respect everyone including yourself.
We have to understand that we are no longer in "survival mode" like we have been for thousands of years. With ascension we are becoming our divine selves. We are becoming our own soul.
Forgiveness will heal your heart. Someone described the heart as a lotus blossom that opens up with forgiveness. Forgive yourself and then forgive others. Realize that what we perceive as mistakes, allow us to gain wisdom.
Meditation gets the mind out of the way and allows you to live from the heart. It's actually more about breathing and just relaxing. If you hate meditation like I do, just breathe deeply. It brings you back to the heart and to this NOW moment.
Genuine appreciation and gratitude will open your heart and increase the heart coherence. Appreciation and gratitude are not compatible with illness, poverty or any other uncomfortable states.
Compassion comes from the heart. Compassion allows us to live in unity. Practice forgiveness, give up judgements, reach for understanding, rather than criticism. Know that your heart is like a message center. If you pay attention, you will FEEL what's true for you.
Here's a simple technique that you could try. Focus your attention on your heart and breath a little deeper than normal. Breath in for 5 or 6 seconds and out for 5 or 6 seconds. Hold a positive feeling as you do this. It could be the first time you met someone or the day that your child was born. It could be a special moment that you shared with someone. Make it something that you truly love and appreciate, as you do your breathing. Do this a few times each day. If it helps to focus, place your finger in the center of your chest or put your hand over your heart.
