How to access wisdom of heart?

Each one of us would like to act wisely in order to become successful in life. We would like to have more insight into life. However, most of us are unaware of the way in which wisdom can be accessed. This is because we are habitual of using our mind and have never used our heart.

Besides, in many cases the heart itself has become incapable of providing any guidance at all. Why is it so? What can be done to change this?

This is so because over a period of time we have suppressed many emotions in our heart. As a result, the heart has become heavy with stored pain and has become incapable of giving any guidance.

So how can we bring it back to life?

Activate wisdom of heart

Wisdom is a higher intelligence, which is a function of heart.

All of us normally use the intelligence of mind, which includes understanding, reasoning, logic, and analysis. Therefore, in order to move towards using higher intelligence, we must first understand how the intelligence of mind is limited and why we should use wisdom of heart more often than we usually do.

First, let us understand what mind is.

Our mind is a collection of our thoughts. These thoughts can be categorized into our beliefs, opinions, ideas, values, and principles. Therefore, when we look at reality and try to understand with our mind, we see it through our own thoughts. This becomes our own interpretation of reality rather than a true account of reality.

Believe in the possibility to manifest dreams

Each one of us wants to live a dream life. A life where all our wishes are fulfilled and we achieve everything that we want to achieve.

However, very few amongst us really believe in the possibility of realizing their dreams and living a dream life. This is because the dreams appear bigger than our present reality and our present capability of achieving them.

Well, friends a dream would not be a dream if it is not a higher reality. It would not inspire you if it is not something more magnificent than your present reality and if it does not require you to become much more than what you presently are.

Therefore, by no means you should leave the pursuit of your dreams as there can be no life more painful than the one where you leave the pursuit of your dreams. A life not lived in pursuit of your dreams is an average life, devoid of any excitement. It is not really lived but just passed by doing activities that help you survive but not truly enjoy your life. Think for a moment, we just have this life and not going after your dream would mean always living a lesser life than your dream life.

What needs to change to change situations?

Sometimes we come across such situations in life that are unpleasant and disturbing and no matter how hard we try, they do not change.

What needs to be done in such circumstances? What kind of action would bring about a change?

Well, every situation is designed specifically according to our learning needs. Therefore, if we are able to understand the design of a situation, we will be able to learn whatever we need to learn from it. Our learning is nothing but an evolution in thought leading to a change in our perception.

Understand failure to understand success

All of us always want to succeed in life; it is quite a natural desire. When the desire is natural the fulfillment should also be natural. Yet we observe failures happening in our life and in lives of others. Why is it so?

In order to understand this we must understand that nature is always perfect. The sun never fails to rise, earth never fails to rotate, and birds never fail to fly. Then why human beings do not always succeed in their endeavors?

What exactly causes human failure and what needs to be done to correct this?

Profit by managing inner energy

Life depends upon choices. At every instant life is giving us options from which we have to choose.

So it becomes very important to learn what kind of choices would result in gain and which ones would result in loss.

Well, it all depends on energy.

While making a choice all you have to do is to look at your energy. If one choice reduces your energy then there is no need to make that choice in spite of all the reasons in its favor.

On the other hand, if a choice increases your energy then that is a right choice, even though there are sufficient reasons against it.

How to become clear about your choice?

Most of us are often confused about our choices in life. We wonder why we do not know what we want. If the choice is ours why we should not know it? If we would not know our choices then who would? Moreover, if someone else decides what our choice should be, then it cannot be considered as our choice, it would be that person’s choice about us.

However, our problem is not that others have other choices about us, but our problem is that we are not convinced about our own choices. Therefore, we are creating room for other people to interfere with our choices. It is our own confusion that is the problem.

How can we reach that stage in life where we can be sure that we will always have abundance and will be totally secure from the financial standpoint?

If you really want to reach such a stage in life, then it is important to look within and assess your internal value because it is your internal value that determines your extrinsic wealth and security.

So now the question is how to assess the internal value? In order to know your internal value, you need to answer the following question in your heart.

Change aspirations to increase potential and riches

It is a natural human desire to have wealth in life and feel wealthy. We don’t just want to have more wealth but we also want to feel like we have more and relax in realization that we have a lot.

So the basic desire is to feel that we have more and also to have it simultaneously.

Now the question is that if that is the desire why we do not feel like we have more and why it always feels like we don’t have enough even though we may be seeing that we have much more than many.

There is only one simple reason for it and the reason is that we constantly work from the same level of potential and also stay at the same level of potential. This happens because we do not create new aspirations that would require us to access our higher potential and at the same time build our potential as well.

Friends, consider this for a moment, we keep changing many things in life, like our jobs, our, locations, and sometimes even our plans, however, what we do not change is our aspiration.

We are stuck with the same old aspirations that do not mobilize us sufficiently.

How to stay passionate about achieving goals?

Each one of us wants to achieve something in life.

Something that we know has the potential to take our life to the next level, where we will experience greater joy, peace, love, and fulfillment in life.

However, we often feel a lack of drive or passion to really go for it and no matter how much we desire that goal, we do not pursue it wholeheartedly. So how this can be changed?
