It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.
Heartfulness is the companion, not the opposite of Mindfulness. Awareness is the result and cause of this beloved union.
“In all Asian languages the word for mind and the word for heart are the same word, so in English when you hear the word mindfulness, if you are not hearing the word heartfulness, you are not understanding it fully.” Jon Kabat Zinn - internationally known for his work as a scientist, writer, and meditation teacher engaged in bringing mindfulness into the mainstream of medicine and society.
Amazing things happen when you begin with the awareness of your breath in Mindfulness and add awareness of our heartbeat in Heartfulness. The synchronized rhythm of your heart beat, breath and mental focus can greatly amplify the experience of harmony and balance in your daily life.
This heartful state of being supports a lifestyle of energetic buoyancy, where life can flow with more harmony, calm, ease, intuition, confidence, safety, concentration, aliveness, gratitude and generosity. As Heartfulness becomes an effortless habit, you will experience increased relaxed confidence and more effective results in your daily activities.
A Heartful Harmony Refresh is a simple skill with three easy steps,
• Feel your physical heartbeat.
• be aware of your breath.
• relax your body into calm.
Can you feel your heart beating? It is surprising how often people have a hard time feeling their heart beat even though it is a constant force in our bodies. It is common to associate feeling our heart beat with fear or overexertion. What if feeling your heart beat could be your closest companion, a gentle natural reminder that you are alive, you are safe, feeling rhythm and harmony anytime, anywhere?
There is nothing metaphorical, emotional or energetic related to the skill of feeling your heart beat. The entire focus is direct observation of your physical heartbeat.
The countless hidden benefits of a Harmony Refresh are as simple as not having to understand how electricity works to turn on a light switch. It just restores harmony without knowing how.
It can be easy to feel your heartbeat with your hand on your chest while holding a deep breath. If it is still hard to feel your heartbeat, you can do twenty jumping jacks. You will start to feel your heart beat!
Make a sincere commitment to yourself to experiment with a Harmony Refresh at least once, every day this week. Feel your heart as often as you can. You may begin feeling more at ease. Continue to feel your heart beat until it becomes natural without even thinking.
Try it yourself
With a Heartful Harmony Experiment: Practice a Harmony Refresh
Take a moment right now, to feel the pulse of your heart beat, feel your body gently rock as your heart expands and contracts with each beat. Allow your breath to move in and out naturally. Breathe in the gift of life. Allow your body to relax as you exhale. Celebrate every breath as a good breath. Rest in your breath. Allow your body to settle into a state of calm.
Notice how you feel, do you feel alive, energized or maybe calm, content or grateful?
As you feel your heart beat, you might notice, you can’t rush or control your heart beat by thinking. Allow your mind to contemplate and observe the source impulse of your heart beat.
What makes your heart beat?
In every Harmony Refresh we can begin to experience this mysterious source of life. Try allowing the one that beats your heart to be in charge. Give your mind permission to let go of control for a couple heart beats and trust the One who beats your heart.
