A Heart Matter: Doing The Right Thing

heartHow do I decide what to do? Do I listen to my heart or my head? Those two questions came up several times today as I spoke to people.

There are times when it’s really hard to work out the spiritual response to life events. There are decisions to be made and it’s tempting to jump into ‘head’ mode. I know because I used to do it all the time. When I was presented with sticky, challenging circumstances and events my practical mind would start weighing up all the practical options. Frequently I forgot to ask myself what I was feeling. And in some urgent situations I acted first and thought second. My feelings never even came in third. They were often ignored. My heart ached for me to listen. Lots of time I found I had only ended up feeling in worse situation. Even when the practical,solution seemed to be the best for me. It took me a long time to acknowledge my heart had a view too.

Because that’s when my life started to change for the better. When I learned that I had to look into my heart and pay attention to what I felt. Today as I listen to and passed on the Spirit messages I heard the same recommendation I was given. Decide with the heart not the head. What matters is how you feel not what you possess. As if to reinforce this message I had a couple of conversations with friends who are following their hearts. Navigating their way through a spiritual journey by paying attention to how they feel and what their intuition is saying. I know that asking people to listen their hearts is hard to take on board. Especially when the world is at it’s most challenging.

But I also know, from my own experience, that my life has been so much better since I have taken that advice on board.¬†Now every time I approach a decision I check how I feel and I act from my heart. It leads me to do the right thing for me. That matters. Because if I can’t do the right thing for me how can I ever do the right things for anyone else. Is it time to pay attention to your intutive feelings?
