Not all the time, but sometimes it goes something like this:
Heart: This is what I want. Mind: Hm, that is not what I have been planning for the last two years. Heart: I know. Listen. Feel. Me: (hearing) How can this be? It doesn't make any sense. I want to trust, but this just isn't what I was expecting. At all. Heart: It's ok. I love you so much. Here is the light. Mind: But that just isn't in the plan we have been discussing all this time. It's the opposite of what we have been thinking about. It looks nothing like what we've been doing and getting so much out of. It makes no sense! How can that new way possibly be a part of this evolutionary path we are on?! I completely disagree with this whole thing. Heart: I love you. See this light? Feel the way you feel right now while you let it bloom in you. Me: That feels amazing. It feels RIGHT. I can't deny it. I keep looking away, but I literally cannot deny the rightness of what you are saying, Heart. Yes, I think I can... I mean, I want to trust... but I'm afraid. I'm struggling. I'm trying. I don't want to resist. I want to trust you, Heart. Can you help me? Mind: I've got one million reasons why that is the wrong thing to do. Heart: Beloved, you don't need to know. You don't need to know anything. There is nothing you need to do except listen. Feel. You can let go. Let it in. Listen. Me: (silence) (stillness)
(listening to the heart's song) (surrender)
(exquisite, familiar light... simplicity, peace... the knowing of rightness... bright, shining gratitude... a settling in to the experience of alignment)
Mind: But this is totally in contradiction to your heart's desire! Heart: Um, hi. Heart here...
So then the piece of writing just gets silly, but you get the idea.
Personally, I cannot deny my heart's voice. It will not let me go. I listen to my heart, and I utilize the strength of my mind to support my heart's guidance in the material world. I may be quick about it at times and slow at others, but in the end, there is no longer any choice but to follow my heart. Thank God. Thank Love. Thank you, Heart. Thank you, All That Is, for speaking through this point of light inside me that I can actually perceive.
What an incredible, miraculous gift - this perfect, brilliant human design. A compass built right inside the human form so that for as long as we live in these bodies, we can listen and feel and know exactly where we need to go and what we need to do. Or not do. Amazing.
Your heart knows what is right for you. Your heart won't let you down; you can trust your heart. You can follow its guidance.
The heart's vibration - its voice - is clear. Its clarity is completely unmuddled. It is undeniable. It may lead you somewhere completely unexpected, or it may lead you exactly where you thought you were going. It may lead you somewhere that actually feels hard and requires courage. Or it might feel like the easiest thing you've ever felt. Either way, the sense of rightness that comes with following your heart is breathgiving (not breathtaking, right?). And dang if it doesn't bring incredible gifts every single time - and wow, will you be propelled to greater heights and more expansiveness and more love than you thought possible...
...while you live the bizarre, unexpected, totally natural, exactly right truth of who you are and what you want, and consciously evolve beyond your known edges into absolutely new territory... and then beyond that, into absolutely new territory...
