In my recent trip back home to Venezuela I met an 85-year old woman at a train station who asked me one of the simplest, yet most profound questions I’ve ever been asked.
As we waited for the arrival of the next train, the old woman wanted to know what it was I did to earn my living. I proudly responded, “I’m a heart intelligence coach”.
Upon hearing the fancy title I’m so used to sharing with others these days, she scratched her head, and asked, something no one had ever asked me before…
“What is that good for?”
Feeling awkward and quite vulnerable after her question, this is what found its way out of my lips…
“It’s good for helping people access the power of their hearts to re-invent themselves, and create a whole new life based on what is really important and dear to you, so that you can live life more fully, love more openly, and live in accordance to God’s will for your life, and make this a more loving world.”
The old woman seemed pensive for a few moments before finally saying, “Oh, I see, in that case, I’m one of them heart smart people too, because I’ve lived my life from the fullness of my heart. And I have no regrets. Doing things passionately and with love, that is the real secret to life.”
In her very simple and modest way, this wise woman revealed to me the top 3 reasons why the power of the heart beats The Law of Attraction or any other method of reality manifestation that is primarily mind-based.
3 Reasons why the Power of the Heart beats The Law of Attraction
The basic principle behind The Law of Attraction is that by focusing on positive thoughts, one can bring about positive results. In other words, if you focus on a bicycle and imagine yourself riding a bicycle, you will eventually attract a bicycle into your life. Right?
Not quite. If manifestation was that simple, we all would have everything we think about.
What’s missing from this limited perception of how our reality is created, is that something much more powerful than thoughts is actually responsible for what we manifest in our lives. In my experience as a heart intelligence coach, this missing ingredient is the power of our emotions.
Here’s the top 3 reasons why the power of the heart beats The Law of Attraction:
Reason #1: How you feel is more important than what you think
It’s not just what you think, it’s how you feel. Thoughts are primarily made of electrical energy, while feelings or emotions are primarily made of magnetic energy. The heart being the largest generator of magnetic energy in our physical bodies, it is also the center of our emotional system. And magnetic energy, as the word itself describes, either attracts or repels. To activate the heart’s magnetism all you need to do is to generate the feelings of love and appreciation. By finding a way to feel better about your current problem or situation, you’ll be able to access more unused resources of your brain, but also find creative solutions to help you manifest your goals or desires.
Reason #2: An action inspired from the wisdom of the heart is more powerful and effective
It’s not just how you feel, it’s what you do. I remember when I started learning about the Law of Attraction, I would spend countless hours thinking about what I wanted and even generating the ‘good’ feelings I knew that were required, but nothing seemed to come my way. Somehow I had bought into a system that did not require me to take any kind of action. The truth is that ultimately, the attainment of any results is always preceded by some kind of action, and only action – specifically an inspired action or an action that comes from the wisdom of heart, or a place of joy or love – will yield you the results you so long to experience.
Reason #3: An action infused with the feelings of the heart will seem effortless and have a greater impact on the world
It’s not just what you do, it’s how you do it. Have you ever heard of people talking about how ‘effortlessly’ something was manifested? Well, what this means to me is that when the action was carried out, it was done with some sort of enthusiasm or passion, that made it seem as if effortlessly. The reason it appears this way is the same reason behind the statement, ‘time flies when you’re having fun’. So make the process of creating something new into something contagiously fun, even a game, so that you awaken the feeling of love and passion not only within yourself, but also in others. In my experience, there’s no better or faster way to change the world!
In essence, you can summarize these 3 reasons in the following statement which is really the same words the wise woman at the train station shared with me:
Live your life from the fullness of your heart, and have no regrets. Doing things passionately and with love, that is the real secret to life.
Do this, and you’ll not only feel better, and experience more love and joy in your life, but you’ll also help make this a better world.
