Have you ever been on vacation and felt a sensation inside yourself, that pointed you to do something different than you planned? Have you ever given in to this sensation and realized that what evolved because of it was so much better than the plan you initially set out to go for in the first place?
That same feeling is the feeling you get when things feel right. That same feeling is the feeling you get when things make sense to the point that you know that it is right, even though everyone else (and your head probably the most) tells you it is the worst to do.
That same feeling is the feeling writers get when things seem flying to them and they feel the urge to bring them out of them, to express them in whatever shape or form. In fact, it is the feeling that brought me to write these lines in the first place.
Whatever speaks inside of you, it wants to be spoken.
Is it a truth you found for yourself and want to share with the world?
Is it a note that came through you and wants to be expressed in music?
Is it an idea of a world that you want to live in?
Whatever it is, listen to this sensation, literally sit there and FEEL into it.
What does it want to tell you?
Do you understand it?
If you are like me on my journey, it is a language that most of us have totally forgotten.
It is the language of the heart.
Listening to the heart is like listening to another language.
Some things you understand out of context, other words you don’t understand from the start.
Yet as with any other foreign language, you get better and better at understanding it any time you ask for the meaning of it.
The same applies to the language of your heart.
Whenever you feel that sensation in your heart or gut that pointes you to something, simply try to allow it to come through you, to literally speak through you.
It may be that feelings will come up, or maybe words or even pictures. Whatever it is, give that feelings and words that come up the room to be there and get to know them just as you would get to know a new person.
And with every sensation that you feel inside you that is telling you something else than your head is telling you, let go for once what your heart is telling you and move with what your body is telling you.
Just as with the vacation plans you initially had, the plans that you changed for the gut feeling that you had and realised that whatever came out of it was so much more of what you needed than any plan you ever had; you may very well realise that what you will find by following your gut feeling is so much more of what you need than the idea you have in your mind what might make you happy.
The more your do it, the better you get at listening and speaking the language of the heart. By staying with it and listening to it non-judgementally you learn to listen to it. By following this sensation and speaking what feels right to you and doing what feels right for you, you learn to speak the language of the heart. That is the way of manifestation from the heart.
To listen and speak the language of the heart is to be yourself.
To listen and speak the language of the heart is all your parents, your friends, the world want you to do.
To listen and speak the language of the heart is to follow your bliss.
You have treasures inside you. Treasures you burried in your heart for so long.
I think it is time you allow yourself to bring them forth.
Stop living life with your words unspoken, songs unsung.
Be yourself in a world that always tried you to be something else.
Not because it wanted the worst for you. But to learn to speak the language you have forgotten to speak.
What does your heart tell you?
Speak the language of your heart.
