Today, a stunning peacock crossed my path. I was stopped in my tracks.
As I observed the beautiful animal, a message from Spirit came through loud and clear: “Show your true colors my dear. You were created beautiful. Now shine forth with confidence and elegance”.
Within each one of us is an eternal source of wisdom, guidance and clarity. We can always access this sacred communication through the intelligence of the heart.
We are also blessed with a magnificent mind that is active in ways that are beyond human comprehension; our mind has profound capacity to make meaning from the whispers of the soul that emerge from our core and manifest our deepest wishes.
Mind and heart are Divine Companions. Alignment is possible when heart communicates and the mind contemplates the information in a meaning-making process. When in harmonious relationship, mind and heart are mutually respectful. Together they can align with soul which leads to clarity and direction.
When out of sync with one another, messages from Spirit/Higher Self/Soul can easily get drowned out by the noise of confusion and input from external information sources. Mind and heart are out of alignment when the heart nudges and the mind doubts; when the heart sees possibilities and the mind sees obstacles; when the heart seeks to be free and the mind seeks safety and protection.
The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. – Albert Einstein
Confusion, tension and inner turmoil are all signs that mind and heart may be out of alignment and thus not able to connect with the soul’s guidance and wisdom.
When the Divine Companions are out of alignment, the messages from Soul are harder to hear. When heart and mind are in alignment, the communication is loud and clear and the guidance is impeccable and uplifting.
When opening to receive the whispers of our Soul, is it helpful to remember that we are here on this planet, at this time in human history, for a very specific reason. Part of our earthly journey is to continuously tune inward and seek clarity and direction as to what our individual paths are meant to be and how we can each contribute to the greater good. We are here 100% for personal growth and fulfillment and 100% to contribute to the greater good.
Our Soul is always encouraging us to shine forth our true colors and freely express our unique gifts and talents. Like the peacock, we are meant to spread our wings and unapologetically reveal divine beauty in the world in our own way. As we gain the courage and confidence to do so, we are both blessed by the experience, for we are fulfilling our purpose, and we are also a blessing in the lives of those who are touched by our contributions.
We are always guided from within; in every moment we can tune in, ask for guidance, receive clarity and move forward—in every single moment we can do this. The more we practice aligning mind with heart, the stronger the inner connection becomes and the more easily we can feel, hear and receive messages from Spirit.
One way to align mind and heart is to privilege the intelligence of the heart while respectfully asking that the mind follow its wisdom. When in doubt, return to the heart. The heart is pure, profound and perfect. It is untouched by life. It is whole and complete. It is clear and all knowing. It is fully connected with Spirit and always communicating with us.
The blessed mind is profoundly conditioned by life and external realities. It is incredibly impressionable and malleable; it can change position at any time; it assesses possibilities, it calculates, it strategizes, it contemplates, it creates and revises, it seeks meaning and is incredibly powerful in its ability to create.
Heart and mind need each other. Heart alone is not enough. It needs its companion to bring forth inner wisdom into manifested reality. The mind alone is not enough, for it is lost without clear guidance from the heart. The two work best in harmony. Alignment between heart and mind is what the soul requires to become fully embodied in service of personal fulfillment and creative contribution to the greater good.
May we all hear the whispers of the Soul and follow the guidance that emerges.
Blessings on the journey….
