More on Following Your Heart

Following your heart is not to be confused with following your head.  How do you tell the difference?  Well, here’s what I’ve learned:


Your heart’s message is usually pretty simple.   (For example, “Give them one more try.”)

Your mind’s message is usually a never-ending stream of debating what you should do.  (For example, “You’ve gone in that place a few times, and they haven’t had what you wanted.  You’re running a little late this morning besides.  So why waste your time stopping when they probably don’t even have what you want?  I mean….”)


Your heart’s message doesn’t usually have any “good reason” to go with it.  It just “feels” right.  If someone were to ask you why you were going with your heart, you wouldn’t easily be able to explain it.  In fact, you’d most likely say something like, “I don’t know…I can’t really tell you, but I know it’s the way to go.”

Your mind, on the other hand, presents you with all kinds of “logical reasons”.  See above examples.

And that’s pretty much it.  Some of you are pretty clear on telling the difference, but for those of you that aren’t sure, try to distinguish between the two.  Then, if you really want to see some amazing things happen, go with your heart:)
