Your heart is not only your most vital organ in your body, but it is also linked to something that goes beyond your body. You may call this an intuition, God, spirit, vibration, higher self, or something else. The truth is, your heart knows what’s good for you and warns you when something is not right. It does everything to put you on the right path.
However, oftentimes there is a battle between our emotions and our rational mind. And it is essential to make a distinction between these two and choose the right thing for our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
People say often you should follow your heart. This is definitely a good advice especially if you don’t want to be sorry later. Because as I’ve said above – your heart is constantly giving you messages that you should never ignore. And when you choose to follow your heart – these 4 things will happen:
1. You’ll begin following your authentic truth.
When you follow your heart you will give a purpose to your life. You will start living your life in an authentic way by being your real self. When you follow your dreams and goals the whole world will compile to help you reach them.
You will have the power within you to become the person that you always wanted to be. Plus, when you follow your authentic truth you’ll make better choices.
2. You’ll be more courageous.
When you decide to listen to your heart, you’ll have more courage to overcome any obstacles that come your way. When you understand that your heart knows what the best is for you, you’ll immediately become more willing to follow your heart desires no matter what. This will set you free.
Sometimes being courageous means giving up everything you once believed or loved for the sake of something better. Sometimes being brave means aiming at a higher version of yourself. Whatever it is – choose bravery every time.
3. You’ll start honouring your feelings.
When you have doubts about something, or you have to make an important decision – the first thing you should do is to listen to your heart. Look inside yourself and observe carefully for any physical or emotional changes that happen in you.
When the decision is right you should feel calm and there shouldn’t be any blockages or pressure. As a result, you will pay attention to your feelings more and honour them.
4. Your mind will open to endless possibilities.
When you dance to the song of your heart everything will change for the better. You will gain new perspectives and you’ll have a better view of the world in general. You will be like a little child again. Children always follow their heart.
As Shel Silverstein said: “Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
