Heart Centered Living
So many live exclusively in their mind and thoughts; limited to
their analysis, their assessments, their worries, and their
judgments. However, more people are deciding to live by their heart
versus their mind, and the payoffs are tremendous.
does it mean to live by one’s heart? When making a decision or
seeking guidance one should become quiet and center themselves in
the energy of their heart, unlocking their inner wisdom for the best
Why the heart? Not only is it a cellular
mass, a muscle that keeps blood flowing, but it is able to transmit
and receive electrical signals. Scientific studies have compared the
electrical activity (Cycles Per Second) between the brain and the
heart. The results are that the CPS of the brain averages 0-30 CPS,
and the CPS of the heart is at 250! Therefore, heart is a much more
powerful sender and receiver of energy and information.
order to receive this heart wisdom and guidance one must be
operating from outside their conscious mind. However, the mind is a
strong, constant force: What is the last thing that occurs before we
drift to sleep and the first thing when we wake in the morning – a
thought! How can someone step outside of the constant flow from the
conscious mind? Meditation is one of the best practices to help us
get out of our busy thoughts and tap into our heart’s wisdom.
The late Paul Pearsall, clinical neuropsychologist, shared his
heart awakening in The Heart’s Code. His heart kept telling him
something was wrong with him physically, yet the medical diagnostics
found that nothing was wrong. His doctors said it was just stress.
Pearsall’s brain accepted this, but his heart remained worried.
As time went on, he said that his heart was crying out that he
was dying. He explained that while his brain knew something was
wrong, his heart understood the meaning. The debate between his
heart and brain continued for months. His brain listened to the
doctors; his heart continued to make appeals.
primary care physician said, “I give up. I’ll do a CAT scan just to
put you at rest… For god’s sake man, you are a scientist. Use your
brain, not your pump!” The CAT scan revealed a soccer-sized
Pearsall wrote that when one operates
primarily from their mind, their heart can only speak to them like a
shy small child trying to get a busy mother’s attention by tugging
at her clothing. He said he learned from the experience to
intentionally focus more on his heart than his head. Moreover, he
shared that his relationship with his heart evolved from that of a
child seeking attention, to a source of wisdom much like a trusted
parent. He received insights from his heart that guided his healing
and recovery, sometimes calling into question what his physicians
were recommending. He wrote that listening to his heart saved his
life twice – once for demanding the diagnosis and once for guiding
Neale Walsh in Conversations with God, writes,
“When you spend time trying to figure out what’s best for you, you
are doing just that; spending your time. Better to save your time by
being out of your mind and into your heart where decisions can be
reached quickly, choices activated rapidly, because your soul
creates from present experience without review and analysis.”
Kathryn Shaprio in Wisdom’s Choice, writes that the “Heart is
the compass for our life.”
