“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside dreams, who looks inside awakens.” Carl Jung
Have you ever tried to talking to your heart? Really asking it what it needs or wants? I invite you to try this exercise. Close your eyes and focus on your breath; with each inhalation pause right before a slow exhalation. Do this 4 times. Visualize your heart center. See its strength and vitality. Thank your heart for its constant beats of life. Now ask your heart these questions: Heart of mine what do you need? Heart of mine what do you want? Heart of mine what do I need to know? Don’t force the answers. There is no right or wrong here whatever comes to you is exactly right. Slowly bring yourself back to your physical surroundings. You may want to journal about the answers your heart gave you or just sit with the information for a bit. One way or another this exercise will give you valuable insights in literally knowing what makes your heart tick.
