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.

Evil & Good Take Turns as Tyranny Attempts to Checkmate America

If all that’s transpired in the year of 2021 isn’t enough to raise your blood pressure then surely the attack against American children should wake up the moral compass of all living and breathing Americans. The unleashing mandates in conjunction with the “Myocarditis Bioweapon” unleashed on the nation’s children will have an impact felt far into the future!

3 Graphs on The Israeli Pandemic Tell A Story

3 Graphs on The Israeli Pandemic Tell A Story

These recent graphs from the Israeli Ministry of Health make the case clear. Infections are rising strongly, but hospitalizations are decreasing significantly, and fatalities drop almost to zero. This is a standard pattern of how societies clear viruses every flu season. Why then all the stress on the number of cases by the Stalinist mainstream media and Anthony the Devious?

Dilute Povidone-Iodine Nasal/Oral Washes for the Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19

Dilute Povidone-Iodine Nasal/Oral Washes for the Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19

The virus must be killed in the nasal cavity at least twice a day after coming back home for prevention and up to every four hours during active treatment. This is very important with the Omicron variant, which multiplies 70 times faster than the prior strains of the virus. Early treatment using this approach is associated with a 71% improvement…

The Problem With a Permanent Pandemic

The Problem With a Permanent Pandemic

Unfortunately, rather than treating the Omicron variant as an endemic virus, we are instead making the masks on planes mandate permanent, canceling News Years Eve parties, and making vaccine passports mandatory in some cities and states. Just yesterday, Anthony Fauci said that we should make vaccine passports mandatory to board all domestic flights…

Fertility and Covid: The Needle & the Narrative

Fertility and Covid: The Needle & the Narrative

Under the label of “missing information,” Pfizer itself told the FDA that it had no information about “Use in Pregnancy and lactation” nor “Use in Pediatric Individuals < 12 Years of Age.” “Vaccine Effectiveness” was also listed as “Missing information” by Pfizer. It appears, then, that Pfizer told the FDA its vaccines might kill people, but that it had no information about the impact on pregnancy and nursing. All while, at the same time, the FDA pushed the vaccine as “safe and effective” anyway...

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #12

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #12

I thought one had lifetime immunity once getting covid. I’ve already had Covid-19. Can I still get infected with the Omicron variant? How accurate are the Covid 19 antigen tests? If they’re not accurate, how do I find out for sure if I had Covid? My heart feels like someone is holding it and squeezing it gently, is there a blood test to see if I got an injury from the vax? We’ll answer a record number of questions with Dr. Peter McCullough…

Omicron Variant is Mother Nature’s COVID-19 Immunity Booster

Omicron Variant is Mother Nature’s COVID-19 Immunity Booster

Despite Omicron having a lower estimated transmissibility index than Delta, it has a replication speed of ~70X that of prior variants and explains why it has edged out Delta as the predominant variant. This means for most; there will be a viral malaise and possibly mild nasal congestion for 1-3 days and then resolution. Many have said the Omicron syndrome feels like a COVID-19 vaccine booster…

Capitalism Killed Off Communism; Here is China’s Dilemma

Capitalism Killed Off Communism; Here is China’s Dilemma

China’s vast labor pool, mostly low-paid, uneducated people from China’s interior who are no longer interested in the CCPs propaganda, are experiencing the joys of Capitalism and want a piece of it. As they are not unionized and the CCP has a vast military-security apparatus ready to settle labor problems, the tension will build up into seething resentment until a break does occur…

When Government Fails to Protect Your Rights…

When Government Fails to Protect Your Rights…

We’ve already seen governments claim the authority to control what you can say, how you run your business, even what you put into your body. All of these are infringements of the people’s rights protected by the Constitution of the US. Perhaps it’s time We the People remind our employees in government of the consequences of failing to protect our rights…
