A Quiet Heart

This is a post from last March. It seems like a good re-share!

I haven't been able to hear my heart so I haven't been able to get out what I needed to.

This is one of those things that happens to everyone from time to time. It is not always easy to remember to get centered in the heart living in such a busy and fast paced world. And sometimes we can't hear out heart because our brains are simply talking too loud.

When I needed help returning to heart help came in the form of a friend who told me that I inspire her and brighten up her life just by being in it. The full body tingle I felt on hearing that was the wake up call I needed, a reminder that my purpose is deeper and greater than I have ever imagined.

The Heart of the Matter

Sometimes we need reminders of what drives us forward, of what dreams we have forgotten to long for and the influence we may have on other people. Knowing that I touch peoples live simply by existing is pretty powerful. It is powerful in a way that means I am moving in the right direction, even though it might feel a little unnerving.....a little scary even!

Listening to the heart doesn't always feel like you imagine: there may not be the pounding thrill of rushing blood, it may be quiet so you may have really open to hear it. A heart reaching out may only be able to whisper.

Are you listening to your heart? What do you hear?


  1. Thanks so much for this post!
    I had to stop and ask my heart what it wanted me to know, and that whisper I can barely hear said 'more lightness of being; more joy; more connection; more inspiration that I can claim for my own!'
    But I've been so mired in survival; in dealing with my health, financial and social situations (or lack of them) that it's going to take lots of creativity to rediscover the things that make me feel alive in each moment; to move beyond the exhaustion, the loss/grief and the isolation.
    You've inspired me to begin looking for new answers, and I thank you (and my heart thanks you!) for that.

  2. Cynthia, that is wonderful! More lightness of being and more joy sound like perfection! I am delighted to have been able to help you look for new answers. Your heart is ready and I am so excited to see what it tells you!
