What is “Heart Centered” Living?

Namaste!
The boom of the yoga movement, reiki, essential oils, crystals, life coaching has given birth to a sub-culture dialogue that doesn’t always have a Webster’s dictionary to help us out.

I mean, what does heart centered even mean?

I’ll be honest if you know me personally or have been following my content for a while, I am sure you know my thoughts about diluted spiritual and self-development speak. And that you can’t think your way to BEing.
However, we can all use more distinctions in this area to go BEYOND the mind, and get into the heart space.
Let’s start here. Heart Centered Living is commonly mistaken for all those ooey-gooey, care-bear sayings like “be kind”, “listen to your heart”, “choose love”, “this is all for the best”, “your heart knows”. But do you know your heart? What does that mean? How do you know?

Quick Quiz: Do you know your heart?

1. Do you think emotions are tools for your life and a way to hear your truth?
yes/no
2. Do you know the difference between silent knowing and thinking knowing?
yes/no
3. Do you live in your body? (Are you present? Can you move through life with a sense of being totally aware of your present moment rather than all the thoughts in your head past, present and future?)
yes/no
If you answered YES, then this will be a nice, succinct review to anchor what you already know and grow that heart space.
If NO, well then great! You are beginning a magnificent journey to one of the biggest ally’s you could ever have; your own heart space.
In my program You are the Manual I go into much more detail about this in the module about Heart Intelligence, however, knowing about the Mind, the Body and Spirit help put it all into perspective. Each area enhances the whole. If this is a topic you want to explore I highly encourage the recorded 5 module program.
But for now, what I can leave you with is this.

Living in the HEART doesn’t mean always feeling positive!

Holy Moly, far from it.
What it does give you is a center to anchor to a knowledge of your place on this earth, in your Being, that is unshakeable. It enables feelings to process. Think of the heart center as your digestive system for emotional energy. If you eat a cucumber, easy peezy for the digestive system to process, then assimilate what’s needed, and then expel what isn’t needed. Nature at its finest.
Emotional digestion is done through the heart. Unfortunately, we’ve overused our cognitive mind to take over a job it was never designed to do – process emotions. The mind will only ruminate, not digest and assimilate. The body and heart process the energy of emotions, e-motion. The heart doesn’t make “bad feelings”  go away. We need the spectrum of feelings to be human, they all have their place. Grief will be grief, anger will be anger, disappointment will still hurt or feel sad, emotions are not bad because they are experienced as discomfort. They are simply misunderstood.
When we REALLY live heart centered. We can feel feelings, and use them as energy, information, confirmation and just plain feel as a human experience.
The emotions can simply be. They can move and serve us as they were meant to.
I personally used to think emotions were JERKS. I wanted nothing to do with my body full of pain and my emotions which ripped me from difficult feeling too difficult feeling with no real sense of peace on the horizon. No knowledge of how to deal or what to do. They felt like a big, dark, scary abyss. Now I know I only experienced this fear of emotion because my mind couldn’t digest them. No one taught me how to get into my body and heart.
Healer heal thyself, right?
And so, here I am on the other side of this journey. Wanting to share the REAL DEAL information that is not diluted or hype-y.
Feeling feelings is not always HAPPY. But it will bring you sanity, even peace… eventually. Feeling feelings allows the intelligence to be brought to the surface. For your betterment, nourishment, clarity, and truth. It frees up energy and enhances your life.
Heart Intelligence doesn’t speak English (or your dominant language). It mostly speaks…well – FEELING. If you dam the feelings, they build up and we all know what that feels like. Its chaotic, insecure, tiring, overwhelming….
NOT a positive feeling.
The good news, once you start small, connect to your heart more, know that it is teaching you in different ways than your logical mind understands, and have compassion for the spectrum of human emotions, you are on your way.
You learned to walk. You took a step.
You’ve learned many things by taking small, steady and slow, actions. You can learn how to live heart centered too.
Be consistent. Do the heart breathing exercise you got when you signed up for my newsletter. (jennasmithcoaching.com)
Heart Centered living IS a real thing. It’s not always “positive” it is Truth, Being, and Love in the most magnificent, multifaceted way only a heart can be.
Knowing.
Intuition.
Creativity.
Inspiration.
Connection.
Nature.
Embracing life. Being YOU.

PM Boris Johnson announced that his country is to move into mitigated COVID restrictions, dropping the legal requirement for face masks and COVID passports.

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

A close examination of the newly unredacted emails reveals that none of the usual justifications for redactions, such as private information about people or threats to sources and methods, apply. All appear to have been made solely to shield Fauci and the NIH from scrutiny over its cover-up of the virus’ origins. Also involved in the obfuscation effort were Fauci’s boss, recently retired NIH Dir Dr. Francis Collins…

This Week In COVID: Hospitals, Please Stop Killing Our Loved Ones!

Patients never have the same doctor or nurse 2 days in a row. Family advocates STILL aren’t allowed to be bedside. The ‘Science’ isn’t being followed, but the ‘Money’ is being chased after. Doctors aren’t THINKING, they are OBEYING. One-size-fits-all does NOT work for high-risk patients or any patients. If you agree this is wrong, help us fight for what’s right…

The Questionable Merger of a Global Reverse Biotechnology Corporation

The former corporation of Senomyx, once headquartered out of La Jolla, California, allegedly used aborted Fetal cells in its food and beverage products while in collaboration with some of the world’s largest leading food and beverage corporations.

Why Ukraine Matters to America

Why Ukraine Matters to America

Putin was severely stung by the collapse of the Soviet Union and what he perceived as gloating on the part of American politicians and others in the West. Putin set it as his primary goal to get payback for what he viewed as the insults that were levied against Mother Russia. I recall at the time commenting that we needed to tone it down…

England’s COVID Liberation: Real or Ruse?

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s sudden change of direction leaves one to wonder if he is genuine in his thoughts and motives. Has he finally figured out that masking, isolation, jabs, and distancing never availed us any good? Probably not. Johnson has endured increasing pressure to resign due to his cultic mandates. Being freed from vaccine passports, mask mandates, classroom restrictions, isolation…

Anthony Fauci’s Rules: The Rule of Two

We are not in a pandemic anymore, but Fauci told us just the other day – and repeated the following day – that though Omicron may be mild, that does NOT mean we can relax restrictions, so like the Little Engine that Could (Not), we just keep chugging up the mountain, knowing we will never reach the top. The Biden Administration, in the meantime, tells us to grow up and manage our expectations…

Flip-flop Joe Must Stay the Course on Off-shore Drilling

Just before holding the lease auction, the Biden administration said the lawsuit did force them to make the oil leases in the Gulf. Now, flip-flop Joe’s administration says they did not have to go ahead with the lease auctions. In response, the environmental group Earthjustice launched a lawsuit on December 3rd to halt the leases before they come into effect in…

Edicts Gone Wild – Statehouses, City Halls, Kingdoms or Oligarchies?

When the CDC’s data shows that children under 5 are less than 3% of the cases and have a statistically zero percent death rate, I wonder what experts Secretary Becerra has been consulting. And since these mandates reduce parental involvement, along with social, educational, and health quality, I think the Secretary has missed the boat on this one…

Americans are Experiencing the Toxic Taste of Socialism in 2022

Americans are Experiencing the Toxic Taste of Socialism in 2022

Top leaders entrusted to protect our safety and liberties have turned blind eyes to the lawlessness that advances their political agenda narratives, condoned neo-Marxist indoctrination of children, and weaponized police state intimidation of those who resist. President Ronald Reagan issued an urgent reminder that “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”
