Let’s Get to the Heart of the Matter!

“I believe there’s an inner power that makes winners or losers and the winners are the ones who really listen to the truth of their hearts.”   Sylvester Stallone

We have had conversations over the years that go something like this, “He knew in his heart of hearts,” and “her heart just wasn’t in it.” We know the power of the heart. This has now been proven by the work of ‘The Institute of Heartmath’ and others. The energy that is put out by the heart is much more than the brain and messages going from the Heart to the brain outnumber the messages going in the opposite direction.  So often we listen to the mind with its conditioned beliefs that tell us the lies of “I’m not good enough, I can’t do this, no one listens to me, the list goes on.”

When you can honestly listen to your heart and follow its desires, is when you live a life full of the truth and purpose. So often though, we allow the doubts and fears to creep in and undermine our intentions. These doubts and fears are based on the past when we’ve made a mistake or fallen down. As a child learning to walk we keep getting up when we fall. So remind yourself, that if what your heart is telling you you really want to do, then like walking we need to get up one more time. Lying on the ground blaming, judging, feeling sorry for yourself is not going to get the job done. It is going to allow those old stories win. I spent some time over the long weekend re assembling my vision board – taking off the things I have achieved and re-evaluating some others. Having it in front of me and having some quiet or meditation time, helps to keep me on track when I ‘lose the plot.’

Enjoy listening to the truth of your heart!
