The more that you read, the more often you hear "live from the heart, go within". What does that actually mean?
The short answer is that we think too much.
Your subconscious mind is a thought processor. It's like a super computer and it's a record of your past. It doesn't like change. It was designed to keep you safe. Now in some cases that's a good thing, but more often it's just reminding you of those old fearful beliefs that no longer serve you.
When they say to "go within", it means to start FEELING rather than thinking. Pay attention to how certain thoughts and certain situations make you FEEL. Does it feel like truth? Does it make you feel better? Or does it feel like a lie? Lies are based on fear.
I was reading some new material and it reminded me that EVERYTHING that we see is history. Everything has already been created. It has already been named and defined. We've been told that this is what certain things mean and this is how we should feel about them. We have been taught how to judge them. Yet the very first lesson of A Course In Miracles, is "Nothing means anything". The only meaning, is the meaning that you give it.
Why are there so many people searching for the truth right now? It's because something doesn't FEEL right, about what they've been taught. Feelings like that don't come from the head, they come from the heart.
As humans we have been taught to think, we have been taught that knowledge is important but knowledge and KNOWING are two different things. It's your soul that knows why your here and it's your soul that is connected to the heart. Your heart is where your KNOWING is and it will never lie to you.
On the other hand, your subconscious mind will lie to you all day long because of all the untruths that it has been taught throughout your lifetime.
Do you realize that the heart is the first thing that is developed in the body? Your heart is 5000 times, magnetically stronger than the brain. Magnetically stronger means that it attracts. There is actually a large energy field that surrounds your heart, which makes it much more powerful to live from the heart than to live from the mind.
Everything is energy and all energy is connected. When you live from the heart, it's your connection to your guidance. When you live from the heart your life will be filled with much more peace and love.
"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 everything through, but that idea scares the hell out of humans. That's not what we have been taught.
We have to understand that we are no longer in "survival mode" like we have been for thousands of years. Ascension is the merging of the human self and the divine self.
Each morning, before you open your eyes, BE in this NOW moment. Take a few deep breaths and focus on your heart. That will automatically bring you to NOW.
Now is the only place where you can create the NEW.
Meditation is a way to live from the heart. If you don't like meditation, there's a simple technique below.
Forgiveness will heal your heart. Forgive yourself and then forgive others. Have compassion and reach for understanding, rather than criticism.
Appreciation and gratitude will open your heart and increase the heart coherence.
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 or grandchild 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.
