Follow Your Heart (Part 3) – Connecting With Your Heart

The Heart’s Importance

What does it mean to follow one’s own heart? To follow your heart means to follow the path that is most true to you. And what is most true to you, you only know.

What fills you with excitement and joy just by thinking about it? What captures your imagination and makes you wonder and laugh like a child? The answers to these questions lay in your heart.

The heart speaks to us with passionate emotion and excitement. It makes us want to dance and sing and paint. It makes us want to solve complex mathematical problems that explain the universe. It makes us want to climb the highest mountains just because we can.

If you don’t know what you’re passionate about, then you have been disconnected from your heart for too long. The heart is essential to our lives and without it we are lost. Without it, we cannot live.

Feel To Reconnect With Your Heart

Whenever you find yourself not knowing what to do in any area of your life, you’ll need to reconnect with your heart.

In order to connect with your heart, you must first understand that the heart will not speak to you in thoughts. The heart speaks in its’ native language of emotions and feelings.

Feelings are a great indicator of what your heart wants. Say for example that you are thinking about where to live. If the thought of one place makes you feel sick in the stomach, and the thought of another place makes you feel energetic and excited, the obvious choice is to go with the place that makes you feel excited because that is what your heart is telling you. That’s the way it is with all decisions.

Sometimes itโ€™s a good idea to take a break from your day to day life in order to feel your heart once again. When you step away from your life, you will have the chance to see it from a new perspective. You set all your problems aside, and without them bothering you, you are allowed to think and feel clearly.

Take some time off your normal routines to explore your desires. Journal or write everything that you’re feeling, and what you want for your life. Don’t be afraid to dream. FEEL who you truly are and what you truly want. Pay attention to what makes you feel happy, excited, motivated, and full of glee.

You need to be completely honest with yourself. Don’t be afraid of expressing who you really are. You don’t need to explain it to anyone if you don’t want to. Out of the billions of people on Earth, there are millions and millions who love and accept you just the way you are. (The author of this article is one of them).

You will need courage to take the firsts steps. But don’t worry, there are plenty of people who will help you along the way.

The heart is so important. Without our hearts, we would be lost. Without our hearts, we never would have lived. Humankind would have never stepped outside the Earth’s sky. We never would have crossed the sea’s edge. We never would have left the trees for the savannas.

Our hearts are our spirits, our guidance. They give us hope. They are our inner child that is waiting to leap, and run. They are waiting to imagine the impossible.

You have only but one life. Don’t let anybody control what you can and cannot do, because they can’t. Only you have the power to create the life that you want. Don’t let yourself be fooled by the voices that tell you you can’t make your dreams come true. Even when that voice is yours and it says you’re not good enough, or smart enough.

  1. Wow, that last sentence brought a tear to my eye. I think your own voice is the hardest to argue with. The negativity and cynicism of other people is easy to contend with in comparison to your own. Looking forward to part 4 ๐Ÿ™‚
