Finding your heart
Where did it go in the first place?
Wouldn’t it be nice to find and live from your heart all of the time? But what happens when life is hard, people are unfriendly, and things aren’t working out like you want them too? How do you find your heart despite the storm?
Sometimes life seems to spiral out of your control. Situations arise that you don’t like or agree with and somewhere in the mess you fall out of your heart. Even though you are aware that you’re in a downward spiral you can’t seem to muster the energy you need to get back into your heart.
Falling out of your heart is not a “bad” thing. In fact I have found that it is necessary at times during this life’s journey in order to learn lessons that have then allowed me to see a new perspective, disprove a limitation and have greater appreciation for life. However, having a way to reconnect to your heart and its intelligence at will is key to feeling empowered even when you feel disconnected from your heart.
Truths about love
The energy of the heart is love and there are some fundamentals to reveal about love. The first is to know is that love is always there. Sometimes your focus is somewhere else, but love never left. It is always present. The second truth is that love has no judgments or conditions. Even if you don’t agree or approve of yourself, or another person or their actions it is still possible to love yourself and others. Lastly, love is abundant. If you give a little away to someone you don’t run out of it. There is no shortage in supply, only a shortage in the act of giving & receiving it.
3 simple steps to find your heart
In those times when love has seemed to disappear from your life or being there is an easy method to refocus and find your heart again.
- Slow down. The hearts pace is slower pace then the active (overactive) mind. In order to step into the rhythm of the heart we need to stop filling every moment with an action or thought.
- Acknowledge something that feels good. This may be a memory that makes you smile or gratitude for someone/something in your life. Bring this into the forefront of your awareness.
- Allow yourself to feel good. As you tap into and acknowledge something that feels good let your being feel it too! Spread it through your body. Receive it.
With these 3 simple steps you can refocus and reconnect to your heart, which makes everything flow with more effortless ease and grace.
