“Sci-fi has never really been my bag. But I do believe in a lot of weird things these days, such as synchronicity. Quantum physics suggests it’s possible, so why not?” — John Cleese
We all hit junctions — those dreaded forks in the road — at certain epochs of our lives. The thing that frightens us the most is ‘are we making the right choice?’ when we embark on any new venture or life altering choice.
I’m going to discuss how to navigate confidently and without doubt (and without a map — just using your internal GPS) those important life decisions in 3 easy steps. But first let’s look at why we don’t need maps, books, guru’s or anything else outside ourselves to soldier on in this blossoming age of Aquarius.
What is Heart-Centered Living Really About?
The pivotal ethos to living in this new era or paradigm is to be focused on heart-guidance.
What is heart-guidance?
It’s not some wishy-washy glitter banter that requires you to don a floral bandana, fish out the bell bottoms and dance around a campfire singing ‘Kumbaya’ — it’s a serious new way of approaching our inner strength, power and ability to tap into the essence of all that is.
In a nutshell, it’s the vital self empowerment tool.
Think of heart-centered living as trusting your intuition — the superconscious universal mind. It’s the Divine Soup that makes up existence and simmers with creative potential.
External Crutches Be Gone!
When we follow our thinking alone, we tend to seek external help. We labour under the delusion that we are not good enough and that there must be someone out there who knows more than we do, so we seek the knowledge for progress outside of ourselves.
Fat lot of good that’s done us so far, right?
It’s not that some people or information can’t help us, it’s the principle that any external help is merely an aid not a solution. Going inside is inevitably the only way. We are creatures of ingrained habit and following a path that we can only see a foot ahead is no easy feat — that is one of the reasons why we slip back into old ways of doing things that feel safe.
However, there is no real safety in repetitive behavior that doesn’t lead to necessary growth.
When we trust our instincts, no matter how ‘unplannned’ (meaning that we have no step-by-step plan on how to get there), we embark on a journey that is intuitive and that is why your synchronicity feelers need to be out there tracking the waves of the universe (I’ll discuss more about synchronicity below).
When you first approach the heart (what you feel is right) and marry that with the head (the course of action to take) you are using heart-centered guidance.
So, it’s not so hippy after all, eh? It’s about bringing the two into balance.
You’re going to be out of whack if you use only your head or only your heart. It’s the old Yin and Yang aspect of self again. You can’t lean too heavy on either side — you need to find that Goldilocks zone to get the balance right.
Let’s get to the 3 steps of using that inner GPS system:
- Intuition — This is going with your gut instinct or listening to your heart. You know what makes you happy and what doesn’t. Most of us run on auto-pilot and let the subconscious mind take over which usually leads us to repetitive behavior and not expansive creation. Using the intuition or heart center will help you to tap into the superconscious mind (read more about the superconscious and subconscious mind HERE).
- Synchronicity — Trust in those meaningful encounters and situations, they are not mere ‘coincidences’ , they are actually pointers from spirit that guide us to the right path. If you have no idea what synchronicity is, then I strongly urge you to read more about it HERE — it could change your life and way of thinking. We are made of energy and exude a certain frequency or vibration with our emotions — especially the highly charged variety. When we send out a vibration into the universe it is matched and then certain markers are sent back to us as precursors to the frequency we are trying to manifest. If we ignore those markers, we could end up ignoring the trail that is lighting up for us to follow. This is why synchronicity is vital to take note of.
- Flow — We’ve got to keep making sure that we are surrendering to the universal flow. If we struggle against what is and try to paddle furiously against the stream of the present moment, life becomes a floundering fight. If we give in and stop resisting, we let the current take us with grace and ease to our destination. How do you slip into this flow? Be at peace with yourself and your NOW moment. Trust that you are heading in the direction of your greater good and keep aligning your self to joy and being in touch with spirit. Get plenty of rest, meditate and try to feel that everything is in Divine Order. What you inject (through feeling and intent) into the present is what you will reap in your future NOW moment.
Happy Trail Blazing!
