Heart Gateway to Magic

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, author of Le Petite Prince

In some ancient civilizations and cultures the heart was considered the seat of consciousness. The heart was where learning, decisions and intuition all took place. Yes, our hearts can be gateways to living a more connected and magical life. We open up entirely new ways of experiencing reality when we “think” with our heart, instead of our brain. The heart’s electromagnetic field effects all it comes into contact with, so when we are interacting with another being, everything can be transformed. Our hearts are sensory organs and organs of perception, which can learn, remember and of course…. feel.

Lately I have been interacting with the natural world through my heart, instead of my brain and wow, hello magic! When we can leave our heads and enter our heart, we can experience new enchantments and a deeper reality. It all begins with dropping out of our brain and resting our awareness in our heart. Feelings become richer, relationships deeper and connection fuller.

The most amazing power of the heart is the simplicity of connecting! All we have to do is focus in our heart space, breathe, truly see what we are looking at, and hear what we are hearing, and ask ourselves, “what does this (plant or person or other) feel like?” Allow the sensations to fill you. Relax and stay open, and Viola, we will think less and feel more. Thinking less means less analyzing and fretting, and more magic. We can do this in any interaction, be it with a human, a plant or a non-human animal.

I invite you to try it. What have you got to lose? It can feel so so good. Not to mention all the wonderful side effects such as more joy, better relationships, being more on purpose, and way more magic………………….
