my medicine woman, Dr. Wolf (more on this magnificent woman later), recently taught me about how amazing our hearts are… i learned that the heart is more cognitive than the brain, the brain is more linear, that’s why we should think more with our hearts. the heart is like a vortex and adds deeper dimension to what we do. Dr. Wolf also shared with me that the spiritual, emotional, and universal can only be accessed from the heart; therefore we must go to the heart to act multi-dimensionally … i love that our heart is how we access the spiritual realm… it makes sense when i think of the importance of heart in art and yoga for example and how i use those to connect to the divine… also, i learned that the 4 chambers of the heart are connected to our emotions, mind, spirit, and body… the heart also makes electricity for the body… and electricity can be thought of as energy, life force, intelligence, information… she also shared that our hearts can’t be synchronous if balance in our lives is lacking…maybe that’s why my heart has been hurting lately- i’m out of balance… i think if i thought more with my heart i would find a better balance… but was that cognition from my brain or heart? i guess when we feel like our truest selves and make choices based on our most authentic selves that’s taking heed to our most cognitive part of us- the heart. Dr. Wolf said, understanding our heart is essential in manifesting, making our dreams come true…and added that only those true to themselves and true to their purpose can manifest something that will change the world.
just want to close with a quote from one of my favorite books by Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist, that’s all about following your heart – “Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself,” the alchemist replies. “And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.”
