Keys to connecting with heart consciousness include:
Remember Who You Really Are: You are the Divine Light of Spirit. You are unconditionally loved and worthy – always. It is only the ego that tells you that you must prove your worth or live up to other people expectations. Listen to your heart, not your ego, and remember Who you really Are, and that you are unconditionally loved and worthy! We each have gifts to share. No one is exactly like you and the world is in need of your beautiful light – celebrate your beautiful, Divine light and shine it!
Love You – ALL of You: Love all of your Self - each and every part. It is in accepting the best and worst of your Self that you can experience wholeness. Let go of the images you were conditioned with about what you “should” be, do, have or look like. Detach from other people’s judgments, as their judgments are about their “stuff” – their thoughts, beliefs and conditioning reflecting back at them through their judgments of others. Forgive yourself and others for your perceived grievances and errors. We all have the capability to experience any human condition or act under the right circumstances. We each travel the path our Soul has chosen to experience, and it is important to release judgments of yourself and others, as our Souls travel our beautiful Divine paths. Even if your ego doesn’t understand, your Soul does. Any part of you – whether your ego judges it as “good” or “bad” – that you reject within yourself (usually because you were taught to believe it was “good” or “bad”) will be reflected back to you through your relationships and experiences. To live from your heart, your true Divine essence, embrace ALL of you.
Be Your Authentic Self: As you release the ego’s need to live up to the expectations of others for approval and acceptance, you give your Self permission to express Who you choose to BE. Who you choose to BE may change over time as you experience, create, learn and grow. Life is ever-changing as it flows in its Divine rhythm. Reflect on Who you were 5 years ago – are you the same person today, or have your experiences and creations shifted your experience of your Self?
Connect With and Share Your Gifts: Your Soul longs to serve in the world through sharing the gifts you came here to share. Gifts are not usually physical, but rather attributes or characteristics such as compassion, love, peace, joy, courage and so on. When you share your gifts with the intention of being of true service, you create true joy and fulfillment from within (not dependent on anything outside of you). No one can take this away from you for it is your true Divine essence. As you allow your Soul to reveal it’s gifts to you, you connect with the flow of life to give (share your gifts), receive the abundance that allows you to continue giving, and as a result, create and experience deep purpose and meaning for your life (true joy and fulfillment).
Give/BE That Which You Desire: Your energy (thoughts, words, feelings, beliefs and actions) is like a magnet, attracting to you experiences and people that resonate with your energy. If you desire more peace in your life, but your energy is not peaceful, you are not aligned with attracting peace. One way to connect with Heart Consciousness is to give away or BE that which you desire for the purpose of SHARING, not getting/having (which is ego consciousness). If you desire love, BE love, give love to others. Being/sharing the very things you desire helps you to realize it’s been within you all along, and encourages you to share your gifts on a deeper level.
