How do you know if you are living from your head or your heart?

I don’t know about any of you, but I have spent a considerable amount of time, working out – do I operate out of my head or my heart, in life?

As you know I am all about living a balanced life.

When I worked in the corporate world, I was logical, organized, good at problem solving, finding answers and solutions.  A very head based lifestyle.

Now that I live life as the shaman in the city, I find I live a different life.  I listen to what is right for me, what I need to do and I go with the flow in life.  A heart based lifestyle.

When life goes out of balance, it is because you have gone into your head to work out what was the right thing for you to do.  You weighed up the “should’s”, “musts”,” have to’s” etc.

When a decision needs to be made, it is best to look down, focus into your heart and feel what is right for you.

How do you know that you have done this right?

The trick to knowing is, your voice will be lower and your attention will be at your heart for heart based decisions.

If you have come from the head, your eyes will be up, your voice higher pitched and your awareness will be in your head.

Lets give it a try with a decision about, what do you want to eat for breakfast?

  • Look up, go into your mind and ask the question (what do I want to have for breakfast this morning) and answer it out loud.   Pay attention to the tone of your voice and how it felt.  Then……
  • Look down, go into you heart and ask the question again and answer it out loud. How was your tone of voice this time and how did it feel?

Which one felt right?

I guarantee the heart based answer will be what you really want and need for breakfast.

Enjoy and I am off to eat some eggs this morning.
