Aligning with your heartsong...



Heartsong? What could my heart have to do with my future? Well, how about six months from now? What about a year from now? Since no one actually knows what will happen in this life, why not get in touch with your heart and see where your soul WANTS to go. I know, it sounds a little woo woo, but let's do a little comparison, shall we?

Let's just say you continue on the path you are on right now... exactly the same until six months has gone by. You're working, your living, your doing your thing. You still have this unease about where your life is going, but you've been told, work harder, so you do. You feel like all you ever do is work, work, work. You feel stuck in this cycle of wake up, work, sleep (sometimes), repeat. In the blink of an eye, that six months has gone by, and guess what, life is still exactly the same. This cycle will continue unless...

Enter my suggestion - take a nice deep breath and let it out slowly. Place your hands over your heart and simply ask yourself, "What would my heart say?" The answers are as unique as the people on this earth. Who knows what your heart will tell you. I recently asked this question of my own heart and three words came in to my mind. Connection, Open, & Compassion. Honestly, connection is my number one value, so there's no surprise there. I live and breath compassionately for every living thing around me, so I also understood that message very easily. The middle one, Open, that one stopped me in my tracks. I'm not a very open person. I don't like to be "out there in the world". I stay hidden behind my pen and paper, keyboard, in the barn, you name it, I like to be in my safe little world. So that one, has been a huge challenge for me. I am learning every day HOW to be open. How to keep an open heart. Honestly, it scares me so much. And yet, it feels so much bigger than I usually feel. It feels like I am no longer in this small body, like I am much more connected to the universe, to God, and to everything around me. I am living in harmony with nature. I am guided by my soul - not by the lessons I learned from society or family or anyone else. It is truly a magnificent feeling and terrifying at times. I will continue to live with an open heart.

When we get stuck in a way of being, it is suffocating to us. We may be doing well in all aspects of our life from the outside, but on the inside, we are withering away. This slow death of the spirit is never a good thing. Our body will continue to speak - louder and louder until we listen to it. The focus then becomes our physical health, and yet really what is happening is our body is receiving messages from our soul on a cellular level, every moment of every day. Take time to stop, sit with yourself, and listen. "How long?" you ask. Well, for me, I tend to feel everything - so I'm kind of a freak of nature when it comes to these things. I feel like each person must find their time frame that fits best for them. It may be one full minute, sixty seconds of rebooting during the work day. It may be twenty minutes every morning. I highly recommend trying it though. It may be the first steps in saving your spirit, living longer, more beautifully, and joyful. For me, it's living in harmony. I seek harmony in my life. I used to think I was seeking balance. I needed a balance between work and home. Now I understand that my balance goes much deeper. It's a connection to the universe that I needed more of. Everything from my daily prayers that I write in my journal (I have thousands of prayers that I have written for others) to my feet touching the bare ground in the early morning hours while i stand with the trees as the sun rises. I am connecting to God, to love that is everywhere. My prayer for you today is that you touch base with your heart... What would it say to you today? The answer may surprise you.
