Listen to your heart. What a cliche! It’s even a song title and lyric! And anyway..who does that?
The older I get, the more I realize how important listening to your heart is.
Listen to your heart.
You’re probably wondering what the heck I am talking about. I wonder about it too, but since I’ve started listening to my heart, purposely seeking out things that make me feel good, inspire and motivate me, life seems to be easier, more joyful and pleasant.
Listening to your heart means paying attention and raising awareness to what you feel when you are thinking about doing something or when you are doing something, anything really. It’s that little voice in your head that tells you to go ahead and move forward and continue with something. It’s that feeling you get in your gut that you can’t always explain when you find yourself faced with a challenge or in a situation.
When we are engaged and working on things or around people that make us feel good, it’s that feeling of joy and happiness that we experience. The opposite is true too like when we are doing something or surrounded by people that do not make us feel good or happy.
Listening to your heart is all about paying attention. It’s like tuning in to your own personal radio station that’s set to a frequency that belongs to you, and you alone. It’s an energy, a force that we all have. It comes from within us and is always ever present. Sadly, most of us have been taught not to tune in or to listen to it.
I never used to listen to my heart in the past. I was brought up not to trust it because someone always knew what was best for me. How dare I think or believe that I might know what’s best for me.
For the past few years, I’ve been learning to listen to my heart. Lately, it’s the only thing I listen to and as a result, my life is calmer, happier and more joyful. I find that the more I listen to my heart, the brighter the world looks and feels. I find that I am attracting so many amazing things to my life like a course to help my business. I am also finding myself surrounded by people who not only make me feel good and inspire me, but who are also on the same path as me.
So listen to your heart. It will not let you down.
