My guides have been talking to me for several years about the heart-mind. This is the mind we are moving into now. They suggested that it would be a good time to write something a little longer than my regular blog about the heart-mind. I will be doing this in installments. The blogs will be a combination of quotes (in italic writing) from the guides and my input (regular typing). We will talk about what I am calling the ego-mind which is what we have been using to navigate the world all our lives and the heart-mind which is what we have been engaging on occasion and seeing how it works in the world.
You are familiar with life lived through the ego-mind. You are being asked now to choose. Choose the way of your being and expression. It is stepping off into a vast unknown but we would suggest looking around with open eyes. There are many who are choosing the expression of the heart-mind and offer an image of a new world of possibilities.
Let’s take a look at the ego-mind. First, let me say that the ego is important to you. It has been tasked with keeping you safe in your life. The ego works in many ways which we don’t always attribute to keeping us safe. Sometimes it seems like it is asking us to puff up and be larger than we are. Sometimes it may seem to want us to hide. Think of the ego as a child sent to do an adult job. It doesn’t know how to approach the task. When it does a task and the approach works, then that is the approach the ego will take the next time presented with a similar situation. The behavior will become automatic in some cases. What my guides are suggesting (and many other guides too) is that it is time to let the ego-mind rest and engage the heart-mind.
So, now the dilemma of giving up something that has served and protected you so well. How to let go of your intellect, how about expanding it to include your heart and allowing that expansion to be called your heart-mind. The heart-mind embraces the intellectual process but recognizes that it has shortfalls.
Thus the intellect is honored and continues on the journey with its human but is now co-driving the journey and shortly enjoying the ride while the heart drives. If the process is allowed to progress as an opening or an expansion of the individual with the intellectual mind moving from the driver’s seat, to the co-pilot, to passenger seat, it is a gentle transition allowing the heart to move from the backseat or maybe the trunk even into the co-pilot seat and finally driving.
It is not necessarily stress free but it is certainly a clear step wise transition.
Starting to be aware of your heart and your heart’s desires is a good place to start to understand what the heart-mind might be and feel like to engage.
Your heart is the main gateway in the physical body to your Divinity. So step one, becomes finding your heart. Do this in little steps. Do this through your feelings. Your heart understands the world through how it makes you feel. So, little steps. How does looking at a beautiful sky make you feel? Start your day by looking at the sky and feel what you feel. Do not judge it just notice and acknowledge the feeling.
Then throughout the day, let your eyes rest on something before you and see how it makes you feel. Again do not judge the feeling just acknowledge how it makes you feel and move on.
These are a few things to think on and try. I will be posting more over the coming little bit. In the meantime, Thanks for listening to your heart! Much love, Linda
