Listening to Your Heart

Published June 22, 2017 in The Woman I Love - 0 Comments

We've heard this so many times.  "Listen to your heart."  "Go with your heart."   What does that mean?

“Love yourself.  Forgive yourself.  Be true to yourself.  How you treat yourself sets the standard for how others will treat you.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” ~Steve Jobs

The moment our eyes open in the morning we are faced with decisions.  This route or that route to work. Take the new job, or move across the country.  Most decisions aren’t life changing, but still, add up to our overall life experience.  By adding more space and deeper feeling into your decision-making process you bring more possibility into your life.  It’s time to start learning how to navigate these new waters.

Your heart is more than your body's most important organ—it's also the essence of your spiritual and emotional being.   And listening to your heart is much more valuable than always making decisions with just your head.

We have heard all the sayings:

  • When you fall in love, you feel your heart flutter.​
  • When you are rejected, your heart breaks
  • You are cold hearted when you act as if you do not care
  • You are big hearted when you show love and concern for someone or some cause.
  • You take things to heart
  • You have a heart to heart talk
  • You love someone from the bottom of your heart
  • If you are not involved emotionally your are half hearted.

But what does it mean to "Listen to our heart?"

One of the main ways that I follow my heart is simply by noticing my feelings. To put this into concrete terms, perhaps someone contacted you about doing a business partnership.

It is important to stay open and notice how things feel. Most of the time it won’t feel right, or something will feel off, so it is best to either say no, or decide to wait.

"Be bold enough to use your voice, brave enough to listen to your heart, and strong enough to live the live you have always imagined."

We've all been there a million different times.  We get that deep in the gut reaction that something does not feel right, but we really don't know why, and we really would like to have that "thing."   Often that "thing" is a love interest, a new friendship, a new opportunity.

The more you follow your heart, the better you will get at it.​  

The better you get at it, the happier and more confident you will feel.

I am sure each one of us can attest to the fact that sometimes we don't listen very well!

As the author of the book to the right (found on Amazon - click on image), shares "to expand how much you listen to you heart can only happen through listening and experimenting."
