Is Your Heart the Real Boss?
by Michael Feeley
Many people believe that the brain sends all the messages to our bodies but science shows that our hearts have a complex nervous system called “The Heart Brain” with 40,000 neurons, support cells and transmitters that actually speak to the brain showing that our hearts not only feel but learn and remember. Your heart is really the boss.
I think of these often used words – “Speak from your heart – Listen to your heart…” because your heart voice is your true voice; your true self filled with the wisdom and empathy that we all want to run our lives.
Confucius said it so well – “Wherever you go, go with all your heart.”
Recently I heard someone say – “I’ll never forgive you.”
Wow! Never! Certainly we can be severely hurt by another person but does it do us and our heart any good to be that stubborn? Hard hearted? Maybe even heartless?
Unfortunately I have been that angry and determined and let it fester in me. Building immense resentment and bitterness. Locking myself down and away from forgiveness, peace and joy. I hurt myself being cold hearted.
What helped me most was making a choice to have a change of heart (whether I ever spoke to that person again or not). I could rationalize change in my head and when I dropped down into my heart, then I felt the solace and freedom of a forgiving heart.
Now I always ask – “What does my heart say?”
Shifting a mind-set into heart-set works.
Your heart beats and has a steady rhythm for a reason, more than just pumping blood throughout your body. It beats steadily with real purpose and the largest emotion – Love. You can think about love but you feel it most in your heart.
