Listen With Your Heart
Animals are wise and loving. They have a lot to teach us about living in a state of joy and peace. In my many conversations with them, they often focus on the human heart and how our possibilities expand when we live from a heart space.
The Animals and I invite you to start listening with your heart. There is value in hearing in this way. It can create beautiful shifts in all of your relationships. Sally, a Robin Redbreast with whom I recently communicated, has some heart notes.
”When you get busy and immersed in everyday life, you can forget to listen. Take a few deep breaths and listen with your heart to what others say. Listen beyond their words so you can hear the spirit of their expression.
"Listen to your inner voice. Hear what wants release from deep within. Listen to us - the animals you share your lives with and those you encounter throughout your day. Each of us has something valuable to share with you."
Healing With Heart and Brain Coherence
Healing potential is enhanced when we live in a state of Heart and Brain Coherence. While thoughts occupy our minds, feelings are the domain of our hearts. When our minds and hearts are in sync, we can create opportunities beyond what we can imagine.
While our minds may have good intentions, feelings attached to old experiences can keep us tethered to our past. Rather than exploring new possibilities, we repeat old patterns and perpetuate our current life. The way to break this cycle is to consciously choose new feelings which give rise to new thoughts that result in new experiences. Through meditation, we can teach our bodies how to do this.
Animals naturally live in a coherent state. They respond to an external stimulus and quickly move beyond it once the outside force is gone. The Animal Kingdom offers a powerful model for adapting to change with curiosity and grace. We can learn from them if we are willing to listen.
