7 Secrets to Navigating the Path to Your Heart

Lao Tzu said that the first step on the path to wisdom is the ability to say, “I don’t know.”

Come with me, take my hand and let me guide you on an adventure of a lifetime leading you to an internal transformation in ways you’ve never experienced. Bridging the heart and mind has its ups and downs, but since when is being on a roller coaster not exciting?

When I began to live mindfully, I had no idea where it would take me and what I would experience. It is sort of like you’re walking in a very dark cave never sure of what is in front of you, searching for a ray of light.  Navigating this path is about being comfortable with not knowing what is coming and recognizing those rays of light and seeing life in a whole new way.

Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: “I’m with you kid. Let’s go.” ~ Maya Angelou

Secret 1 – Be Prepared and Eager: Be ready for lots of change. This way of life will help you develop your instincts, observation skills and a deeper wisdom that your life is faceted and ever-changing for a reason. When obstacles arise you’ll understand that they have a purpose to help you experience the highest, best life possible.

The journey between what you once were and who you are now becoming is where the dance of life really takes place.  Barbara Deangelis

In 2009 when I woke up to what life is all about, I decided to take a leap of faith and begin to live an intentional life of consciousness. It was the scariest, best, most exciting jump toward a life of love, higher self-confidence, and authenticity that I’ve ever taken.

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”― Lao Tzu

Secret 2 –  Mindfully choose – The connection between the heart and mind is about a life of continual self-improvement and seeing everything differently. Once you step into this way of life, you’ll never want to go back.

Secret 3 –  Appreciate your uniqueness – and let it shine. There is no one else like you in the world, you are very special, it is important to radiate that to the world. This way of life is about learning to love and accept who you are and bestow compassion, kindness to yourself that you would give everyone in your life.

Living from the heart is living authentically, whether that means having pink hair or lots of crazy colored clothes, being happy reading books instead of going out, living a bohemian life, whatever makes you the glorious and distinctive individual that you are. Laura

Secret 4 – You are your own best teacher – Get out and try whatever spiritual or self-improvement practices that interest you. Read books, take classes, there are a myriad of beliefs out there so it is important to see what they’re about. Then mix and match whatever you’ve connected with and make the journey your own because at the end of the day only you know what works best for you.

Secret 5 – Choose your tribe wisely and intentionally –  Remember that just because people label themselves as spiritual and it seems as though they’ve got it together, remember they’re only human. You will know in your heart who is and isn’t right for you, this is when you can use your intentional listening and observation skills.

Secret 6 –  Discover Your Gift –  Have you ever wondered what your purpose in life is?  One way to open the door to discovery is think about what you would happily do for free. Your purposes will be many stemming from your gift whatever that is, being on journey of discovery is what a life lived bridging the heart and mind is all about.

Secret 7 –  Connecting with Your Inner Guru –  Your wise and ever-present inner guru will be your life pilot. When your conscious mind is connected with your heart-wisdom, you’ll develop a knowing and feel shifts of energy that will be the signs that change is occurring. Then with the guidance of your inner wisdom, you’ll find the solutions that will move you forward.
