Being Heart-Centred

11th March 2013

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

I spend part of my time in the French and Swiss Alps, in the beautiful mountains that feed my soul. And everywhere I go in these mountains I see hearts. Hearts carved into the wooden doors and balconies of the lovely wooden chalets, hearts in shop windows, hearts in restaurants. I love it so much! Seeing hearts everywhere gives me a wonderful feeling.

And that’s because every time you see one, it takes you out of that place in your  head called your mind, and puts you right back in your own heart space – that place where love resides.  That place where our truth resides.

It takes us back to who we really are, that amazing person we were born to be. And if only, every time we speak to someone, or make a decision, and particularly when we tell ourselves what we think about ourselves – if only we could do it from that place, that heart space, our lives would be truly different.

If you speak to someone with your awareness in your heart, they will hear it. Perhaps not consciously, but on a deeper level they will. And they will respond  in a different way than they would have if you had spoken to them from that place that thinks it knows everything but doesn’t, that we call our mind.

Try it for yourselves and see. Just for one day, place your awareness in your heart  before you engage with any person or any task or any decision and see what happens. Write yourself some post-it notes saying “Be in your heart” or “Be heart-centred”, to remind yourself and stick them in places you’ll see them – particularly first thing in the morning.

I have hearts hanging from all the door handles in my house. They not only give me a lovely feeling but remind me to get out of my head and into my heart. They remind me to be love.

I’d love to hear about what speaks to  your heart, because when you’re connected to your heart, you’re flowing with intuitive guidance.

About the Author

I’ve been single, married, divorced and widowed. I’ve been a teacher, a translator, worked in business and now have my own company… I’ve sailed the Atlantic Ocean and I have climbed Mount Everest. I know! It sounds crazy but it’s true. I said I’d done it and I have, pretty much literally DONE it! I’ve plumbed the depths and scaled the heights in every sense of those words.

And I absolutely know that it was listening to, trusting and following my intuition that got me to where I am today. It got me out of the dark tunnel I was in after my husband died, and not only led me to the summit of Mount Everest, but to many other magical experiences too, like sailing the Atlantic Ocean in a small boat. I was the first British woman to have accomplished both of those things, and only the fifth British woman to stand on the summit of the highest mountain on the planet.
