The other morning my guides continued the discussion about the heart-mind. The guides who are talking with us are a blending of a group consciousness called Helios and another who I call the Angelics. Here is what they had to say:
The benefits of engaging the heart-mind are not obvious when viewed from the ego-mind. However, when viewing your external world, you begin to see some of the benefits. Right now the ego-mind in many cases is making a stand for its survival. This is not the total contributing factor to all those things you find disturbing in your world but it does contribute its fair share. So, first step out of judgment. All parts of the human psyche fight for their lives when they feel challenged. We would suggest not to challenge the ego-mind rather to allow the heart-mind to gently begin to support the ego-mind by suggesting other possibilities.
This can be done by going inside and first observing your ego-mind and then in meditation or observation offering suggestions that arise from sinking into your heart center and listening. Give yourself time to practice. You may have success and you may have stumbling blocks. Stay with the process.
To clarify the process, the guides are talking about, first, observe a reaction arising from your ego-mind, then, allow your awareness to drop into your heart center and let a new response arise. Then rising back into your head and look at the possibilities your heart has presented. Practice this as a review of life events to start with, then begin to use it in “real time” when you feel comfortable.
The process can be done as a review while you rest before getting out of bed or before sleep in the evening. Let your heart center offer differing solutions for what might have arisen during the day. Then feel into the possible responses and allow your ego-mind to feel them as well. Notice the responses from your ego-mind.
Noticing how the ego-mind responds to the alternative actions will give you an understanding of how the two minds work. The next step will be to use the action of sinking into your heart center in daily life. Particularly, when the ego-mind wants to take charge.
It is important to be an impartial observer of your ego-mind. Your ego-mind is merely doing the job it was designed to do. Gentle love and caring is what will ease your way through this process.
Thanks for Stepping into your Heart-Mind! Much love, Linda
