How To Live From the Heart [video]_Featured_, Conscious Evolution, Meditation, Spirituality, Videos Saturday, July 28th, 2012
The heart is the first organ to appear when we come into physical form. It is the first organ which develops in a human fetus. It is often called “the seat of the soul” because the human heart is the first interface between our non physical soul and our physical body. Its electromagnetic field is unparalleled.
If we are able to get in touch with our hearts, we will be able to get in touch with our higher selves (the eternal, benevolent essence that we truly are) which is the true goal of spirituality. Spiritual life is not about knowing much, it is about loving much. It is about getting in touch with our truest self. It is about opening out heart so wide, that “enemy” is not a concept which exists in our reality. And more than that, it is about opening the heart and living from the heart to such a degree that eventually there is also no such concept in our life as “other”.
Thoughts are contained in the body field, which is an energetic field that unites all of us. Thoughts are communicated to the body though the heart first. The heart then sends those signals to the brain, which acts as an interface to that which is non-physical and that which is physical. But, the heart is the very first feed from non-physical into physical reality.
Getting closer to the heart is your way to get closer to that which is eternal about you: non-physical energy, or source energy. In order to move from the mind into the heart space, it is benefit to treat the heart as if it is its own entity. We can let it speak its own truth; we can let it express its own wisdom. And, we can have it help us make decisions in our day to day life, as if it is a mini-ally.
Your brain tells you that you are separate from everything else. The heart does not buy into that illusion. Treat the heart as a friend. When you have to make decisions in your life, you can run those decisions by your heart. Your heart will always tell you what the right answer and the right direction is.
In order move from the mind into the space of the heart, we need to make a place in our lives for quiet so that we can hear the voice of the heart. Meditation is the best way to quiet the mind. When we get the mind out of the way, the heart can have dominion.
Live from intuition, not logic. Intuition is the perspective of the higher self. It is the most objective perspective that there is. It is always in alignment with you highest good.
In order to live from the heart space, let your personal cup overflow with love, joy, kindness, and compassion. In addition, live in the present moment and cultivate detachment. Gratitude is also important. And, be honest with yourself and others.
Living from the heart is living your true essence. It is your truest and most natural state.
