We are all self-governing.
Let us call upon our ancestors and teachers - past and present,
to guide us in the way of the Heart.
You are all my relations. All is One.
We are well into the solar year now, and life keeps rolling along. Sometimes we pause and wonder how we got through certain things, but we did, and now that challenge is behind us…and life goes on.
Slow your life down a little. Give yourself some quality space. Stargaze at night, watch the sunrise, sit in a park, or take a daytime nap. These nourishing moments can be markedly restorative.
If each person on Earth was posed the question ‘What has deep value?’ – I bet the range of answers would be huge. Something is important to me, only because I attribute meaning to it. We need more people in this world to speak up for the things in which they see deep value. Keep that in mind - doing this will help to restore integrity in our society, simply because we are articulating ourselves more from the heart.
And speaking about matters of the heart, many of us know the heart is more than an organ that keeps us alive. Now, there is more research emerging to confirm the heart is central in finding true meaning in life. It is beginning to be accepted that the heart is, in fact, our other brain. Doc Childre, Founder of HeartMath states “The intelligence of the human heart is a powerful force…that can restore peace and harmony on Earth”.
I wonder what life would be like if more and more people started using their heart-brain…my guess would be an increase in compassion and clearer access to intuitive guidance.
Most information on the heart concerns its anatomy and physiological functions. However it’s non-physical aspects remain somewhat a mystery, although most of us know the heart is special.
This month, try focusing in your heart. Place your hand on your heart and breathe into it for as long as you feel. Do a heart meditation. Rest your awareness in your heart. It is time to start ‘thinking’ more from our heart-brain. With this practice, I bet (and I’m not a gambler), depression, anxiety and stress would decrease.
