21 Day Challenge, Day 2

In yesterday’s activity we began to pay attention to something that we normally take for granted; by focusing on the sensation of our feet, we learned that we can change the focal point of our experience and disrupt the negative feelings that can overwhelm our senses.
 
Over the years, I began to see that we take many things for granted, such as time, air, energy, and even life. One of the most important things in life is your heart. In every healing tradition from around the world, the heart is not only a pump, but also the center or origin of our love.
 
I don’t expect us to have a deep connection with our hearts or love quite yet. Instead, I want to start the process of connecting with the heart – and the love found inside it – in a deeper way.

Activity: For 2 minutes, 5 times throughout the day, lightly tap your chest over your heart, while breathing into your heart and focusing your thoughts on your heart. Try to remember the moments when you really felt love and / or imagine a symbol, memory, or scenario that represents love to you. Many focus on moments with their children and families, or times of deep love from childhood.

Hint: The connection to the heart is more important than the connection to love. They go hand in hand, but we start with the heart. As you deepen this connection, the memories and sweet heartfelt experiences of life will awaken. Part of this exercise is to establish patience. We are learning new skills, and this exercise is only the beginning.

Love,
Hamilton

  1. I am in agreement with the idea that the “brain” is the same as the heart in the way it is used. People have often told me that we only use 10% of our brain. I do not accept this and rather think the brain is complete in it’s utilization as our hearts. Does anyone agree with me on this?

    1. It’s not we only use 10% of our brains. We use the entire brain, but 10% at any given time.
      The heart has neurological connections as well. It’s been shown that the certain impulses connected to the heart can respond to stimuli before the brain has processed the information. Many call this your intuition.
