— Heart Intelligence, Doc Childre
Add Heart – Adding heart to whatever you do strengthens and empowers your intentions and commitment. That’s why coaches tell players to “play with heart” and “put your heart into it” – put your love and care into it. Adding heart means adding love, care, kindness, patience, appreciation or compassion as we interact with what life brings us. Hundreds of scientific studies have confirmed this has a measurable impact on physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Adding heart increases the quality of moment-to-moment awareness and bridges the connection to higher intelligence and guidance from your intuitive heart.
Forward Movement – Accessing our heart’s discernment and guidance enables us to create forward movement in personal growth. At times, when we get caught up in stress and drain energy, we can feel like we’re going backwards. As we practice putting more heart and conscious care into our interactions and keep our humility refreshed, then our forward movement quickens with more flow and less resistance.
Forward movement is created when we are committed to taking responsibility for our own energies and practice increasing our love, kindness and compassion in our interactions with others –and especially how we interact with and treat our self.
Heart-Powered Intention – The heart is the power behind higher manifestation. As you practice activating the power of your heart, it brings heart, mind and body into increased cooperation. This alignment brings in more of your spirit and higher discernment faculties—your intuition—to help facilitate the manifestation of deeper heart-felt intentions in all aspects of your life. When heart is added to your intentions, it magnetizes more effective choices and favorable outcomes.
At times, we can feel like we are missing a sense of meaning, purpose and fulfilment. Accessing more of our heart’s intelligence and inspiration and applying it in practical ways enables us to manage our energy, unfold our higher potentials, and create a more fulfilling life.
