Listen to Your Mind, Follow Your Heart

Listen to Your Mind, Follow Your Heart

When the future hinges on the next words that are said, don’t let logic interfere, believe your HEART instead. ~Philip Robison

The smartest and the wisest thing we can do in life for ourselves and for others is to be true to ourselves. True to who we are deep down inside, our inner voice, our heart and intuition. If we dare to ignore what the heart is trying to communicate to us, we will get into a lot of trouble and that’s exactly what happened to me recently.

A while back I was invited to go to this really amazing event where I would meet a lot of wonderful people, speak on stage, be a photographer and also have a lot of fun. Even though in my mind it all seemed like an amazing thing to do, my heart said no for some reason, I decided to just ignore my own heart.

The heart has reasons that reason does not understand. ~Jacques Bénigne Bossuel

The date of the event was getting closer and closer and people would ask me, hey Dana, did you book your flight, when are you leaving? and to their surprise and mine too, my answer was always: not yet, I don’t know, will do it soon.

Because I ignored my intuition from the beginning and focused on what other people assumed I should be doing based on the affirmative answer I gave to them about going to this event, I started feeling stressed, anxious and all kind of negative thoughts would run through my mind. That’s when I knew I was in big truble, my real SELF was upset with me.

Deep down inside I knew what I should be doing in order to make things better but somehow I chose not to, not yet at least. Everything I knew about the importance of being true to your own SELF and the power that comes your way from doing just that was completely ignored by me. I was acting like a totally different person…

After going back and forth for days and pretending I don’t understand what’s happening and why was I feeling the way I was feeling, I knew the time has come for me to stop with the nonsense and go back to being me. I decided to just go ahead and pay attention to my intuition, even though it didn’t make any sense to my rational mind, and refuse the offer. The moment I said: No, I don’t want to go, I have to listen to my intuition, I felt so reliefed. All of my anxiety, all of my frustration and all the negativity disappeared. I immediately went back to feeling calm and at peace with myself and with the whole situation.

Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart. ~Martin Luther King, Jr

You see, people who love and care about you would want to help and would always want to offer you all kind of beautiful opportunities for you to grow and evolve into the amazing being that you are meant to be but there would be times when their presents might be something the mind wants but would not what the heart needs.

It is so important to listen to your own inner voice and to constantly do whatever you feel/know deep down inside is best for you without the fear of being judged or labeled as being ungrateful. If these people really love and care about you, they will understand and they will allow you to do whatever you feel is best for you.

In Life, When you get into trouble; don’t get nervous. Just close your eyes and listen to your Heart. Because the Heart may be on the left…But It is always right.  ~Unknown
