I believe an inner calling comes to each of us in subtle ways and the subtlety of that calling becomes the song of our heart. Our job, should we desire to find our greatest potential, is to learn how to listen.
When our lives are filled with the busyness of things we have to do, and when it goes on for days on end, we may forget that we have created it all by the choices we’ve made.
Abraham-Hicks shared at a recent conference that as human beings we always have choice, our lives are based in freedom – even the freedom to choose bondage.
Why would anyone choose bondage?
Then I remembered when my life felt as if it were running on autopilot and I was living in reaction to life just trying to keep up. Somehow my life became living in response to all the things that I had created including my long list of to-dos, my family, the bills, our home, my work, and all of the other choices in my life… at some point I had begun to believe that I was stuck and the momentum of “stuckness” had been building for some time.
In my experience the still small voice began to get louder and louder. Some can hear it in the beginning and respond by changing and realigning their lives, while others try to ignore the symptoms and push on thinking that things will change for the better someday in the future. Many, those who choose to ignore their own well being, experience less than subtle manifestations of that inner voice and guidance so that it has no choice but to escalate to a louder awareness. This can result in physical messages like a lack of enthusiasm either at work or at home, low energy or physical pain and/or sickness.
In retrospect I had known deep down for some time that I couldn’t go on living in this way but the outward manifestation seemed to be working and my drive towards what I thought was success overrode my attention to the intuitive voice that was trying to guide me in another direction.
What I have learned from the many people I’ve worked with over the years is that the sense of off-ness is a message from your soul calling you to shift something in order to move forward with greater ease.
Our ability to tune in and listen to your intuitive guidance is called intuitive intelligence and it is the only way to awaken to the wholeness that is potentially you. There is an ever-expanding intelligence of “mind” when you allow yourself to choose the life path that is infinitely more fulfilling.
Words like mind-body connection have implied that thought is directly connected to our physical well-being. In other words, our thoughts impact the health and well-being of our bodies. It has been a subject of scientific study for years and we have found that our thoughts directly and cumulatively impact our body’s health, ability to heal and physical potential. But there is even more that we are learning.
We now know that what we think of others also impacts well-being and based on the vibrational level of our thoughts and intensions, the affect will be positive (bringing us closer) or negative (creating the sense of separation).
From the experiential work with horses and our newest studies of leadership we are finding the effects of heart-based intention over goal orientation. The work of both Linda Kohanov in her newest book The Power of the Herd and Frederic Pignon and Magali Delgado, who have dedicated their lives to the mastery of self alignment and co-creation with stallions, have most recently offered profound insight towards an even greater understanding in how to become a great leader that others want to follow.
Our intention speaks volumes of involuntary, non-verbal communication and those who are around us are the recipients of that information all the time.
Through scientific studies at Heartmath Institute we have found more about the heart’s coherence with electromagnetometers (EMA) leading to the factual proof of non-verbal energy that emits from our bodies all the time. The horses have also clearly responded to dissonance by turning away from humans in those circumstances where previously they would choose to stay close. This not only verified the natural response of discomfort, but possibly even more importantly, it pointed out the natural instinct and desire for cohesion and alignment within a coherent group.
If we choose to live with incoherence between our own mind and heart we are in essence choosing to live with vibrational dissonance within our bodies. In effect we are stepping away from our own alignment and in so doing we will eventually deplete our resources and fail. The simplicity of our system is astounding and the potential for human expansion is infinite.
What if this is just another tip of the iceberg?
What if our bodies could actually help us to tap into infinite intelligence through our own intuitive intelligence?
Is it possible that our bodies are trying to provide us with necessary information? What if that information offers us the keys to life expansion and ultimate joy?
What if we find a connection to greater wisdom through learning how to listen and align with our intuitive intelligence as leaders of others and in our own lives? It would mean that we could open to our dreams once again and with that, anything is possible!
