Listen to Your Heart
Sometimes if we listen from our heart we may feel things we need to see. Have you ever heard someone say, “He’s got a big heart” or “My heart just isn’t in this” or “This just feels right”?
There’s some truth to listening to our body. For the most part we can trust the subtle instincts or intuition that has evolved over time. These kinds of phrases help us deal with life.
Sometimes people say that we can't trust our heart or the sensations within us. Should we ignore a tight feeling in our chest or the opposite when we feel the need to relax? Should we ignore the feelings when we deeply care for someone. Shall we only listen to the “facts” and not trust what our heart is telling us? Should we ignore these feelings and be more rational? If we beat down these feelings that seem to be coming from our heart are we going to regret it later on?
Through evolution we have gained the ability to be both rational and to use our intuition which comes from our experience of learning and inner wisdom. One writer says that instinct or feelings that seem to come from our heart are like “God whispering in our ear” or as another writer puts it, “It’s like truth on a silver platter”.
When we trust our heart we can feel more deeply centered and open ourselves to listening more to physiological signals. We can gain a deeper trust in knowing our heart is in line with what is right for each of us in this life, and make better choices that are uniquely aligned with our true-selves.
If it’s important to you, it’s important, period.
