Try measuring your wealth by what you are rather than by what you have. Put the tape measure around your heart rather than your bank account.anonymous
Resting my hand on my chest just now and felt my heart beat. It brought me to a place of extreme gratitude and a moment of awe….. the heartbeat of life…there is no more to say.
Take a moment to put your own hand on your heart and feel the love for yourself from your heart that is beating for you.

Use your mind as a tool. Recognize that through the mind’s eye you can see and access the gate to hell or the gate to freedom. Hell, for lack of a better word, is simply being trapped in a mind that sees the pain and the negativity. Hell is comprised of focusing on the pain and the suffering and leads from a victim stand point. People can become prisoners of their own mind. It has been said that the greatest torture one can experience is to be locked away somewhere with only their own mind.
Being locked in one’s mind and trapped in negativity is like being in a cell with the bars of the cell comprised of fear and suffering.
Our mind is a tool just like money is a tool. They both can be used to build something or destroy something. We need to use our minds wisely. The easiest way to do this, is to lead with the heart and use the mind for its capacity as an orchestrator of our thoughts. Our heart is truly the orchestrator but the mind can be used as a workshop for our thoughts, helping us to create our so called realities.
The heart cannot lie, only the mind can. Ego is famous for leading the mind astray, but the heart never lies. To live in heaven or nirvana here on earth, we can ask over and over again “What would my heart say?” Does my heart lift or drop when I ask that question? This could be any question. Someone asks you to go for lunch with them? Lift or drop? Someone asks you to volunteer for something. Lift or drop?
The heart always knows. We need to listen to our hearts and use the mind to get things done. We need to be the master of our minds, leading from the heart and not the ego.
Love gives the heart a spritz of joy. When we see, focus, and bring into our site, beauty and joy, it charges our heart with more energy and expands our loving frequency. We literally become “larger than life”. So we need to get out of mind, into our heart and let the divine process flow freely.
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.
