The Importance of Listening to Your Own HeartThe heart is more than just an organ that pumps blood throughout the body. It’s also a source of inner knowing, wisdom, and insight. The energetic heart (the heart center) is the portal to your connection with the Universal field. When you listen to (and with) your heart, you tap into a deep reservoir of wisdom that can guide you towards your true purpose in life. Unfortunately, everyday life regularly gets in the way. You forget that you are more than the daily demands on your time and energy. You also forget that you have an inner compass that can guide you. It’s only when the thrum of discontent becomes loud enough, that you look for another way. Then the wisdom of listening to your heart comes to call.
The Science of ResonanceResonance is a phenomenon that occurs when two objects vibrate at the same frequency. When this happens, the energy between the objects becomes synchronized, creating a powerful force. In the context of listening to your own heart, resonance occurs when your thoughts, emotions, and actions are in alignment. This state of resonance creates a powerful energetic field that attracts something that is vibrating at a similar frequency. It’s one way to explain what happens when you think of someone, and then they call you!
Resonance: A Way InWhen you resonate with something or someone, it is because there is a vibrational alignment or synchronization. How do you know? You feel the corresponding response in your cells. Your body may tingle. You feel your chest expand. Sluggishness dissipates. You feel a lightness of being. You feel differently than you did a moment ago. When you know what (and who) you resonate with, you make better decisions. You choose based upon your resonance filter. Your inner wisdom directs your actions. No longer is it enough to do what you were taught to do (or be who you are supposed to be). Your inner wisdom directs your actions. Resonance becomes your compass. The vibrational resonance in your cells acts as both attractor and creator for the projects, people and creative experiences that carry the frequency of your own heart.
Practical Tips for Connecting with Your Inner ResonanceConnecting with your inner resonance is a journey that requires patience and practice. Here are some things to get you started:
- Take time for self-reflection. Cultivate self-awareness. Set aside some time each day to reflect on your thoughts, emotions, and actions. Where did you feel drawn? Where did you feel repelled?
- Create a regular time to get quiet. Be fully present in the moment. When you’re quiet, you’re able to tune out distractions and connect with your inner wisdom.
- Listen to your inner senses. Your inner “voice” guides you towards your next “right” step. As you practice listening and following your inner guidance, trust becomes more natural.
- Surround yourself with people who resonate with you! Like attracts like.
