Do you follow your heart? Do you know how to listen to it? Do you take the time to really hear what it's telling you?
I used to think that the only way to hear what my heart had to say was to be alone, and have silence all around.
Being outside in nature was also required.
Lots of shoulds. And I would get stressed out because I didn't have enough time in my day to create these exact conditions.
You know, with a job, and a young child, and a small house... lot's of reasons. Or excuses.
I would get all sad and frustrated,
"How will I EVER know what my heart yearns for? I'll NEVER know!"
I have realized, slowly, oh so slowly, that my heart tells me ALL the TIME what it wants.
ALL THE TIME.
That's right. So does yours.
You wanna know the secret?
It's your body.
Your magical, imperfect, too many pounds, too much sugar, not enough sleep body.
FEEL it. Every single moment.
What are you doing right now? Reading this, right?
How does your body feel?
Tense? Relaxed? Energized? Tired? Bored?
See, those feelings, that's your heart trying to communicate with you. Trying to tell you something. How you FEEL about something, those are your guide posts. These feelings, if you follow the ones that make you feel ALIVE and ENERGIZED and AWESOME? If you do the things that bring you those feelings?
These heart necklaces? They make me feel warm and fuzzy for all the good that is coming out of them. They were fun to make. They were relaxing to make. They filled me up with LOVE, and they continue to.
MAJOR Heart communication happening around this adventure.
I listened. I really listened. It's been amazing.
Oh, and I have to tell you about another one:
I had no intention of signing up. Not that it didn't sound completely AMAZING. Oh, no, it sounded fantastic! But I was too busy.
Too many other things going on.
Even though my body nearly jumped into the computer when I read about it one day.
Oh. Right. Listening to my body.
Here's my journal cover for the course:
