The following piece is an excerpt from my book, “Word, From Your Mother,” a daily guidance journal written for my children, Liv and Pierce-Gabriel.
I strongly recommend that you do a little research regarding quantum physics. It’s a fantastic field to study and helps one to see the connection between science and spirit. I was listening to Greg Braden today. I call him the Heart Scientist. He very eloquently explained our heart energy in terms of its electric and magnetic power. Most people believe that the brain is the most potent and energetic center of the body, but as he explains, it is not.
It’s projected that the heart is ten thousand times more energetically powerful than the brain. I might have mentioned that our thoughts create our reality, and our thoughts form beliefs. Abraham (Hicks) would put it, “A belief is a thought that we keep thinking over and over and over.” Sometimes our thoughts are not that great, and unfortunately, they may become part of our belief system. For example, if you keep thinking, “I’m not worthy, I’m not smart enough, etc.,” it eventually becomes a train of thought, which then becomes (an unfortunate belief), and therefore manifests in your reality.
Getting back to the “heart of the matter,” if you can go deep into your heart energy, you can change it. Our hearts hold the most sacred messages within. The heart center can alter matter or material reality. So, your mind says, “I’m not smart enough.” How can you change this thought? As before, become aware of your thought, be that bystander, and observe it—don’t judge it. Let yourself feel the feelings associated with that thought—even if it doesn’t feel good.
Now, go into your heart space. What does your heart tell you about that thought? Your heart, which I believe is part of the soul, would never project such negative things about the self. Attempt to transmute that thought to a better feeling thought. It can be as simple as, “I am so loving and kind. I use my intelligence to serve others. I am valuable. I’m am loved.”
Then, be aware of the feeling(s) you experience when you affirm these positive thoughts. You may not feel an immediate shift in your energy vibration; however, with practice, this shift of processing thoughts from the brain to the heart will start to happen by default. Eventually, your heart will speak to you even more and give you messages without your asking it. Thank your heart for the messages you receive from it.
If you practice accessing your heart space each day, you will be amazed at how wonderful your world will become. I feel that heart exercises are the key to discovering and embracing self-love. I am sure you’ve heard that to love others, you must first love yourself. Try to make this a daily practice. It doesn’t take long to tap into the haven of your heart. Trust that the communication you receive will heal you. Always keep in mind that when you heal yourself, you are also healing others.
