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.

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.

Will Omicron Become Nature’s Miracle Vaccine?

Will Omicron Become Nature’s Miracle Vaccine?

After nearly two years into this pandemic, with the U.S. reporting a record high of more than 1 million new COVID-19 cases earlier this month, many are wondering when a sufficient number of the population will reach a level of “herd immunity” so that the virus can no longer find a place to reproduce. Might omicron actually be a blessing…

Why Intelligence Agencies Thrive – Because They Hold Secrets

The black book(s) of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffery Epstein’s partner in predatory sex services for influential people in and out of government, are the gifts that keep on giving, exposing the sexual predators, pedophiles, and rapists in the seats of power who command our patronage and pass our laws. Epstein and Maxwell’s purpose was to use these names to blackmail important politicians for money and influence…

Antifa Extremists Working for the FBI

For the past year, the DHS and FBI have been releasing incremental bulletins and training manuals defining who domestic terrorists are. The documents’ written words cannot be misinterpreted: it’s the US. Literally, anyone who has complained about COVID restrictions, the 2020 elections, the presidential transition, and now CRT, is a domestic terrorist…

Common Sense Addressed to the Inhabitants of America

It is not just time to stop the Joe Biden Administration either, as with but a few exceptions the Republicans are not doing anything to try and save our country. We need to stop the Republicans too. Let me be very clear⏤I am condemning the entire Federal Government of the United States. I’m condemning both Democrats and Republicans – moderates and extremists. I’m condemning the whole damned thing…

Biden’s COVID Speech; 2020 or 2022?

Biden’s COVID Speech; 2020 or 2022?

The next three years scares the heck out of me because of the weak and pathetic person we have in the Oval Office right now. And unfortunately, the fact is that there is no one in the long line of the current presidential succession who can step forward to lead this country in the normal day-to-day governing, much less in an emergency…

Purging Patriots From the Military: The Proof

Purging Patriots From the Military: The Proof

Whistleblowers have confirmed that military commanders have punished unvaccinated soldiers with extra physical activities, shamed them with humiliating acts, and denied them medical treatment as a matter of “shadow” policy across several military installations in acts of coercion to get troops vaccinated. Truth for Health Foundation gives our military a platform to expose…

Claiming Necessity to Infringe on Your Rights

Claiming Necessity to Infringe on Your Rights

Like most Americans, I think operating a two-ton machine while impaired is dangerous and irresponsible. Does that mean it’s within the power of the federal government to impose their opinion of how best to deal with this problem on the American people? It’s not a question of whether the technology is good or bad or even if this is a viable method of reducing drunk driving…

Why Are Democrats Weaponizing 06 January? 

The Deep State quakes in fear of the return of Donald Trump, so he must be destroyed. But, try as they might to do so, we see the Democrats face of Socialism revealed for the dangerous nonsense it really is as their facade of legitimacy, i.e., WOKE, CRT, defunding police, rising crime and murder rates in our Blue cities, etc., collapses around them in piles of…

Will China’s Dream of a World Empire Collapse Before it Begins?

Will China’s Dream of a World Empire Collapse Before it Begins?

Herein lies Xi Jinping’s greatest weakness. His hubris. Like many famous leaders before him, he has over-reached beyond his ability to control the outcome – in policy, in the building of his military, in his over-reach to control so many parts of the world, in the disregard of his own people, in the disrespect towards the other members of the CCP, and of his overall underestimation of the many enemies he…

Are the PCR Test Swabs Dangerous?

Are the PCR Test Swabs Dangerous?

Millions of people are tested daily, and this is part of a rush and panic to get massive testing done. I suppose rushing into anything in a panic is not a very sound principle. To underscore the seriousness of this potential problem, I’d like to provide the background of the researcher who tested the swabs for possible toxicity. Dr. Antonietta M Gatti, Ph.D., is a heavyweight…

Masking can’t hurt, Right? How about Experimental Vaccines?

Masking can’t hurt, Right? How about Experimental Vaccines?

Intuitively, our degree of compromise is directly proportional to the severity of “punishment” or reprisal we expect to receive if we opt to do the right, good, or even logical thing. That’s why so many people wear masks in public; not from conviction, but from fear of repercussions. Some of us have been conditioned to believe that all viruses are psychopathic killers. Not so. Many still believe the gene-manipulating shot is an experimental vaccine…
