How to Trust & Use Guidance from Heart Meditations
It is thrilling and
rewarding to connect with your spiritual self – something that can
be achieved by utilizing heart meditations. As your heart meditation
process unfolds, you learn how to best interpret what you are
experiencing and how to understand the unique language of your heart
and soul. The gifts of this process include personal insights,
guidance, and inspiration.
Yet, it can often be difficult to
trust and use the guidance you receive - because living in this
manner is a new way to operate, so it feels like the unknown. It can
be hard to trust the unknown, but the truth is that life is an
unknown. Everyone trusts that tomorrow morning they will wake up,
that a relationship will continue, or that a job will be permanent.
These are beliefs - but they are also all unknowns.
become popularly accepted to think through a problem - to trust
using your mind for guidance, but that isn’t the only source of
guidance available. Your mind only understands the perspective of
your personal experience and learned knowledge. The wisdom from your
heart and soul offers a broader view – a bird’s eye view. This
guidance encompasses what you have learned, felt, and spiritually
understand. It also offers universal insights and perspectives that
you may not have yet experienced. The wisdom from your heart,
therefore, offers possibilities unavailable from your mind, making
it a much deeper well of knowledge.
Besides the fear of the
unknown there are two possible obstacles that you could encounter
while using guidance received from your heart:
from family and friends – especially common if the choice is outside
of the norm or what most would consider logical. Just as it takes
practice to listen to your inner voice, it also takes practice to
trust that the wisdom you receive is the best choice at any given
2. Opposition from within – struggling with old habit
ways of being. This inner opposition originates from the ego by
manifesting as a fear, worry, or doubt. It is best to courageously
acknowledge that those fears exist, and then move forward in spite
Obstacles like these can block your desire to
implement the knowledge gleaned from a meditation with your heart.
To begin trusting your guidance despite fears and opposition, it is
beneficial to start small! Start by trusting the guidance that you
receive when it relates to small decisions. When you experience this
guidance in action, it helps to quickly build confidence to be able
to take the leaps of trust required for larger decisions. It creates
experienced based knowing that the guidance received is true and is
in your best interest to act on.
In order to trust the
guidance from a heart meditation, expect the process to take
practice. Most everything from walking, riding a bike, to using a
computer takes practice. All skills take time to grow and develop
through practice – just as operating with trust does. Practice aids
your ability to act on the guidance you receive from the wisdom of
your heart without worry or doubt interfering.
If worries or
doubts begin to rise up, a simple process of breathing out your
fears and worries, and then immediately moving forward with trust
and courage before second guessing sets in - is very helpful.
Each time this process is practiced, your ability to trust and
use guidance from your heart meditations strengthens. This makes the
next time an easier experience, and soon living with trust will be
your ongoing way of being!
