I spent some time today listening to an interview by Rick Archer from The Buddah at the Gas Pump. He was interviewing one of my most favorite authors, Anita Moorjani. I absolutely love Anita’s story about her near death experience and the wonderful insight she gleaned from that experience.
I was once again reminded of the importance of listening to the pull of our hearts when making decisions in life. I am an advocate of doing whatever I can to live more fearlessly and in joy so listening to my heart and it’s calling, resonates with me deeply. When we listen with heads, we tend to lead with fear. The fear of what might happen, or not happen, what we have or do not have, consequences, and on it goes.
When we listen to the pull of our hearts we are dancing with our soul and our inner callings and we are listening with passion and with purpose. An easy way to do this is to use the ‘Lift or Drop’ question. When you ask your internal self a question, or you think about an idea, or of a potential course of action, does your heart lift and rise or does it drop? This is an amazingly easy way to check in with your soul.
When we listen to our heads and our egos become engaged, it really can become a battlefield that often leads nowhere or to more fear. By listening and making decisions from our heart space, our true essence leads the way and we can then become the grandest versions of our authentic selves!
My wish for everyone is that you listen to your hearts, lead with love, and live in joy.
