Listen With Your Heart Whether I'm at the end of a paper letter or email correspondence my signature signoff is always “Listen with your heart.”
It's my perspective that the heart is the intersection of thinking (logic) and feeling (emotion).When these two powerful aspects of self are healthy and used in conjunction with each other, we function from a place of wisdom—the heart.This brings clarity in decision-making, removes drudgery, and adds exponentially to joy in the abundance factor.
As Judith Campbell said, “When your heart speaks, take good notes.”
We shouldn't lead with our heart and only follow our emotions.Nor should we lead with our head and only follow logic. Rather, we should use the powerful combination of both and listen with our heart.
In late 2009 Len and I were invited to an art showing to view the work of Russell D'Alessio. Halfway through the evening, I reached behind several canvases and pulled out "Heart With Wings."
With hand on heart and eyes closed, she looks like she is listening intently... listening with her heart. I'm happy to say that she now resides in our home office.
A Gift From the Heart On February 20, 2010 I received the following email from my friend, author, photographer, and artist, Terrill Welch: On Sunday, February 14th, a circle was called here on Mayne Island (BC, Canada) for World Sound Healing Day. I thought of this thread part way through the prayers, songs, and chants that accompanied each person as they walked the portable labyrinth. The chants changed as those around the circle listened deeply and intuitively to what was needed for the person walking. This wasn't discussed, explained or even anticipated by those holding the circle. Laurie, because of you, I had a name for what was happening. In thinking about this experience this morning I decided to come by and thank you.
The photo below is the latest heart I have found in nature… I hope you can find it on the cliff rocks. This photo was taken in Echo Bay on Saturna Island, BC, Canada.
