“The heart knows,” or “My heart just knew!” Have you ever heard someone utter one of these phrases with complete conviction? Have you wished you could say the same thing about the situation you find yourself in?
Yesterday, the technique I introduced you to, encouraged you to pay attention to specific areas in your body as a clue to the emotions you might be feeling. Often our bodies respond more quickly than our minds do to what is happening.
Here is another set of steps designed to help you tune in more clearly to the part of you that truly and simply knows the truth of what you are feeling – your HEART!
This technique helps bring your body and mind into alignment. It helps slow you down with some deep, sloooow breaths to center you and bring you home to yourself.
Heart-Centered Listening is a powerful emotion refocusing technique connecting you with your heart power to help you release stress, balance your emotions, and feel better fast. Once you’ve learned the technique, it only takes a minute to do.
Step 1: Heart Focus
Gently focus your attention in the area of your heart. Place your hand over your heart to tune into the rhythm of your heart beating.
If your mind wanders out of habit, just keep shifting your attention back to the area of your heart, notice the warmth and feel your blood pumping.
Step 2: Heart Breathing
As you focus on the area of your heart, pretend your breath is flowing in and out through that area. This helps your mind and energy to stay focused and your respiration and heart rhythms to synchronize.
Breathe slowly and gently, until your breathing feels smooth and balanced, not forced. Continue to breathe with ease until you find a natural inner rhythm which feels good to you.
Step 3: Heart Feeling
As you continue to breathe, recall a positive feeling, a time when you felt good inside.
Now try to re-experience the feeling. This could be a feeling of appreciation or care towards a special person, a pet, a place you enjoy or an activity that was fun.
Allow yourself to feel this good feeling of appreciation or care.
If you can’t feel anything, it’s okay; just try to find a sincere attitude of appreciation, gratitude, or care.
Once you’ve found a positive feeling or attitude, you can sustain it by continuing your heart focus, heart breathing and heart feeling.
Heart-Centered Listening is a good way to begin the practice of allowing you to feel good.
Happiness is a choice.
The activities and techniques I will introduce you to during the next three days will be the most effective if you are willing to listen to your heart before you begin any of them.
