This question we should all be asking ourselves: Am I heart-centered? Not just because you want to live with compassion and love. Although I sure hope you do! It’s way more than that.
When we are heart-centered, we align with our true selves—this innate wisdom of our heart.
Once we are tapped into our true selves, we can access our inner calling, wisdom, intuition, and a sense of knowing. Being heart-centered is our authentic self.
Here are a couple of questions to ask yourself to see if your heart-centered.
1. What is most important to you in your life? What are your core values? We tend to cruise along with life, not knowing what our core values are. The majority of our values were instilled in us at a young age. Honestly, I am 39, and I re-wrote my values for the first time last year. I had some old values that were not in alignment with me anymore. Just think, these values are running in the background of our subconscious. If we don’t eliminate and change them, we will keep getting the same old story even though we try hard for something new.
2. What are the desires of your heart? Have you sat and listened to what your heart has to say? Our hearts have their own minds! Yes, it’s so true. They are so vast with the knowledge your head mind will be blown! Now, let me be super honest for a hot sec; what the mind and ego want will not always be what the heart wants. That’s why it’s so important to stop and listen to what our heart is telling us. There will be times when your heart is saying something opposite from what you are trying to accomplish, trust! Your heart will NEVER steer you wrong. Even though it might feel out of the box, trust your unique journey and go for it! Only beauty will find you!
3. Do you honor your feelings? When you observe your feelings, allow them to come in and be felt. Not be reactive. When you listen to the information of your emotions, you gather insight and knowledge. Once you start to honor your feelings, life will not be controlled by your feelings. You will become the director of your movie, not the actor.
An efficient and straightforward way to connect with your heart is to breathe through your heart. Sit for a couple of minutes and feel your breath come straight through your heart. You can also say to yourself how grateful you are about your extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, never stops beating, magnificent heart!
Remember, when you are heart-centered, you are living your unique, authentic self.
Until next week laugh, love, and be uniquely YOU!
