The heart center is the place we feel everything. Separate from the mind, it is the place through which our soul speaks. Listen to it, honor it and you will find your life aligned in powerful ways. We’ve all had those moments when we aren’t sure what to do. Our mind creates barriers and obstacles encouraging us to remain stuck in the same loop and story day after day, year after year. Beneath the mental noise, there is a whisper of the heart, sometimes we must strain to hear the answers being given. The chatter of the mind drowns out the truth while the constant beat of the heart waits patiently to be heard.
The heart is where our purest alignment resides. When we take the time to find silence, the most honest answers come and deliver us to the doorstep of our destiny. Fear usually keeps us from accessing this divine gift. It shows up in behaviors of avoidance, resistance, negativity. The mind and EGO will fight tooth and nail to keep us from stepping into our greatness or even moving in the slightest direction of alignment. To claim our authentic power, we must release the icy grip the EGO has had on us our forever. There was a time the EGO was necessary to encourage us to run from a wild animal or survive in the wild. It was a survival tool. As we have evolved, this fear response has translated into a lack of trust in ourselves, in our judgment, in our ability to know what is best for us.
The key is to release the resistance, the excuses, the story. As we physically go higher in our energetic frequencies and vibration, it’s getting harder for the lower bandwidths of energy (deceit, lies, fear, and EGO) to exist. As we rise, the internal fight escalates. Fear grabs ahold of us and the mind jumps in to stoke the fires of doubt in ourselves, in our dreams, in our worthiness. It’s insidious and we are not able to discern truth from fiction when we listen to the lies swirling in our minds. We think every thought is truth, when in fact there is no foundation of truth whatsoever in anything that is not supporting us. The input is twisted and convoluted and the mistake is believing every thought presenting.
The friction created by these discordant energetic frequencies in our everyday life start to present as drama, depression, conflict, inner turmoil. What people fail to realize is it is all energy. It is possible to shift the energetic frequency like turning the knob on the radio to access a different station. It’s the decision to go to a new vibrational place and create a new reality by turning your dial a couple degrees. It is the mental and emotional choice to go deeper within the heart space, NOT allow the EGO/Mind to run the show. Fear is the primary program the mind is running. Fear presents as an excuse to remain in the same disempowered place, choosing to remain small, not speaking the truth, compromising a piece of us to make someone else feel comfortable.
The switch must flip in the heart from off to on, to feel instead of think. When asking yourself a question, answer immediately from the heart instead of pausing to allow the mind to calculate and formulate an answer. Who do you want to be? Where do you want to go? What is the best course of action? Is this right for you? Remove the fear associated with the term “what if” from your vocabulary. Allow yourself to dream. Allow yourself to feel. Allow yourself to own your truth. The reaction of those around you is merely a reflection of their fears and insecurities. We don’t require the approval of anyone to live our lives in alignment with our truth and integrity. We have come into this life to be the fullest expression of ourselves, not what someone else expects us to be. Great courage and inner strength are required to be who we are born to be and it is found in the depths of your heart.
