At any given time, two rivers flow within you. One filled with thoughts of worry and fear about all the unknown dangers that could happen in the future. And at the same time, a beautiful flow from your heart longing to feel loved, safe and peaceful.
Whatever you do for a living today, the truth is that your best work will always come from the river that flows from your heart. But in the future, according to Minouche Shafik, Director of The London School of Economics, even your livelihood will depend on it.
Your heart is your capacity to connect with that deeper, essential aspect of your being.
Your heart is your ability to connect with others from a more real, loving, caring and authentic place.
Your heart is the connecting point to the loving, creative intelligence that guides, nurtures and supports your life.
We all have a heart that is longing to feel more, give more, and experience more. And the journey begins when you place your awareness on the middle of your chest and allow the energy of life to flow in and out.
Relax your neck, head, shoulders, and arms with each breath. Allow the heart’s gentleness to soften your need to control events, people, and circumstances in your life. Find something to appreciate about your life, no matter how small.
Let that energy from your heart flow into your overthinking, worrying mind and surrender all your fears, doubts, reasoning, neediness, planning, or any thoughts and feelings about all the things that could go wrong with your life.
Instead, focus on your heart’s desire for more peace, ease, and flow. Then, use your creative mind to imagine what it would feel like to already be, do, or have whatever it is your heart is longing for. Let this feeling be your new guide.
Surrender all into the river of your heart. Let the future be created from the power and aliveness of the present. Let it be created from the love that conquers all fear. Be here now, in the still yet powerful presence of your heart.

From my heart to yours.
