Follow Your Heart

How many times have you considered doing something a certain way, but had the feeling that it should be done in a different way? How many times has your brain told you what to do, but you felt that something was wrong? Have you ever wondered why this happens and why you have this premonition about things. Follow your heart…. it’s important!

What does the brain do?

The brain is a complex organ in our head that controls our memory, thoughts, emotions, breathing, body temperature, vision, hearing, motor skills, and all the processes that regulate our body. The brain processes information from the outside world gathered by the senses and sends relevant messages back to specific parts of the body. Our brain is responsible for everything we do, think, and feel. It is responsible for our decision-making and thinking skills that make us who we are. It is the brain that keeps us safe and alive.

What does the heart do?

The heart is a muscular organ in our body that pumps blood through the circulatory system by rhythmic contractions and expansion and is located in the chest.  Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body and caries away carbon dioxide and waste products. But the heart is much more than a pump. The heart is the central wisdom of feeling while the brain is the central wisdom of reason. Recent research has revealed that the heart has its own little brain or cardiac nervous system made up of neurons similar to those in the brain. The heart has its own intelligence and the neurological system and the electromagnetic field are much more powerful than the brain’s.

Making decisions  

A balance of heart and brain is very important in making decisions. While the heart is sentimental, emotional, compassionate, and tender, the brain is reasonable, strong, and wise, so it is the brain that calculates all the possibilities and risks and makes decisions based on the available data. But your heart knows what is good for you and often gives you that feeling in your chest and gut that indicates if you are moving in the right direction. The heart plays a huge role in your health, happiness, well-being and longevity. It provides you with emotional and intuitive guidance to help you direct your life. Positive emotions balance the nervous system, strengthen immunity, improve hormonal function, and improve brain function and overall health.

Things to do

There are various practices that can help us create coherence between the heart and brain which is very important for decision-making as well as general well-being. These practices include:

  • Gratitude – A powerful practice that, according to research, produces a strong, balanced, and harmonious energy field within the heart that radiates through the body.
  • Forgiveness – Releasing yourself from past traumas, hurts, pain and grievances and giving yourself permission to move forward.
  • Blessings – A practice that gives you divine protection.
  • Nonjudgement – A practice that makes you feel lighter, happier, more determined, and more understanding.

Follow your heart

Connect with your heart and listen to what it tells you – your heart knows what is good for you. You can simply sit somewhere and get comfortable, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Focus on your heart and feel the heartbeat. Let your thoughts come and go – just observe them. Relax and listen to your heart.  Stay in that state as long as you want. When you are done, open your eyes and say thank you to your heart. Trust and follow your heart. The more you do this exercise, the easier it will be to connect and understand.

Understanding and trusting the power of your heart can improve your life and successful decision-making.

Follow Your Heart and see your life change!
