I Have Come Here to be Heart-Centered

Being centered in the heart comes from deep listening. No matter what the question, go into the stillness and ask your heart for guidance. What does your heart tell you to do, say or be? You have the opportunity to be love in action through the awakening of the heart intelligence and intuition, Open your heart and allow love to lead your words and actions. (from the book “101 possibilities”) Joseph Campbell said, “The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe.”

Being heart-centered means that we are living our lives in alignment with our truest selves, our deepest values, and in tune with the world around us. It suggests that we are not living a life based on what we think we should be doing, what others want us to do, or what society tells us we should do. Instead, we are living in accordance with our hearts, the source of our intuition, compassion, and wisdom. This is heart intelligence. So, how can we make our heartbeat match the beat of the universe and become heart-centered? One of the most effective ways to become heart-centered is to practice mindfulness and presence. This means becoming still and fully present in the moment and grounded in our surroundings. When we are mindful and present, we are more attuned to our hearts and our intuition. We begin to notice when something feels off or out of alignment, and we can take steps to correct it. Mindfulness also helps us let go of the distractions of the external world, which can cloud our judgment and intuition, so we can listen more deeply to our hearts. Practice mindfulness and presence. Another key aspect of becoming heart-centered is cultivating self-awareness. This means engaging in regular introspection and self-reflection. It means doing a Quantum Living worksheet regularly. When we become aware of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, we can begin to identify patterns and obstacles that prevent us from living in alignment with our heart’s wisdom. In the clarity of our deepest knowing we can recognize and penetrate limiting beliefs and behaviors, which keep us stuck in old patterns and prevent us from growing and evolving. Self-awareness also enhances our ability to listen to our hearts, as we become more attuned to what feels intuitively right to us and in alignment with our deepest values. Cultivate self-awareness. Nature too, can be a potent catalyst for becoming heart-centered. When we spend time in nature, we can connect with the rhythms and cycles of the universe. We can feel the energy of the earth, the wind, the water, and the sun. This connection with nature often helps us become more grounded and centered, which enhances our ability to listen to our hearts. Nature can also inspire us and remind us of the interconnectedness of all things, which can shift our perspective and help us live more in alignment with our values. Connect with nature. How do we connect with this heart intelligence? It starts with deep listening. We need to create a space for ourselves where we can quiet the noise around us and tune into our hearts. "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." This line from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince emphasizes the significance of viewing the world through the lens of the heart rather than relying solely on visual perception. Our eyes often deceive us, focusing on superficial appearances and external trappings. But when we engage with the world from the depths of our hearts, we start to perceive what truly matters – the invisible, intangible essence that can only be felt and experienced. Centered in our hearts, we are more likely to cultivate the interpersonal qualities of empathy, compassion, and authenticity, which help us to see beyond appearances and build deep connections with others. When we interact with others, it is easy to judge them based on their physical appearance, accomplishments, or social behavior. By connecting with others from a heart-centered perspective, we foster deeper and more meaningful relationships. Heart Connection with self and others. Becoming heart-centered means living in alignment with the universe around us. It means living a life based on authenticity, purpose, and love. By practicing mindfulness and presence, cultivating self-awareness, connecting with nature, and staying centered in the heart, we can, as Joseph Campbell writes, make our heartbeat match the beat of the universe and live a heart-centered life.
