Spark the Passion of Your Heart
Passion is a key to Igniting the Power Within! The whole month of February we will be exploring what we mean by Passion and how it Ignites this Power.
Passion is a visceral, bodily experience that we associate with feelings and emotions. We know we need to feel our spiritual truth, but sometimes we are actually feeling our reactions to life based on old ideas, beliefs, and past experience. Learning to separate true and clean emotions from triggered reactions allows our passion to flow from conscious self-awareness. Learning to feel our feelings and become aware of how to behave with conscious passion, gives us access to the power of our emotions.
The power of our emotions also isn’t available to us if it’s overwhelmed by anxiety and stress. One of the many paradoxes of our spiritual journey is that the practice of breathing and stillness is crucial to sparking the passion of our heart. Learning to de-stress ourselves, reducing our anxiety, opens the door to our heart and allows our passion to flow joyously and freely.
Passion is closely aligned with our purpose. Follow your passions and you will know what your purpose is. Your heart’s desire is always right; when it’s unclouded by the past or by stress, your passion truly awakens in a whole new way. When your mind and heart are aligned in service to your beingness, life is truly magical.
The magic flows when you are living your life full out, passionately, in alignment with your heart’s desire. How do you know what your heart’s desire is? By learning to listen to your intuition. We teach many tools and techniques to open to and become aware of your inner guidance and will explore some of them this month.
Sparking the passion of your heart, in alignment with your mind, brings your whole consciousness to bear on Igniting the Power Within. In support of this, our book of the month is Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Intuitive Guidance of the Heart by Doc Childre and Howard Martin. It comes from the folks who created HeartMath and is a great companion for this month’s exploration. Come on the journey and Spark the Passion of Your Heart to Ignite the Power Within!
Book of the Month
Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Intuitive Guidance of the Heart by Doc Childre and Howard Martin
Imagine holding the intelligence of your heart as a unifying, creative, intuitive intelligence that you can learn to draw on for moment to moment guidance. Heart Intelligence links the physical heart to the spiritual (energetic) heart. Through its extensive communication with the brain and body, the heart is intimately involved in how we think, feel, and respond to the world.
Our February book of the month offers heart-based techniques and guidelines for living from the heart, which connects the puzzle pieces of our purpose and fulfillment. It also provides information and simple practices for accessing your heart’s intuitive guidance to connect with your highest choices for better outcomes. Work with practices to replace fear with the attitude of intelligent concern, remain in charge and more attuned to intuitive direction. It is through deepening our heart intelligence, coherence, and connection that humanity will be able to shift from separation to cooperation resulting in higher solutions to our personal and global problems; thus, helping to create a world that works for everyone.
