Your heart is calling to you now, and has been your whole life. When you tune in and listen to the callings of your heart, blessings follow.
In this episode, Carolyn Rivers, founder and director of The Sophia Institute teaches how you can identify your own heart callings. Carolyn and Matt dive deep into the wisdom of the heart and how you can cultivate your heart’s yearnings.
Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation:
[05:57] Following Your Heart Callings
His Holiness, the Dalai Lama teaches that the mind is in the heart, not in the brain. The brain works with the heart but the wisdom of the heart is what's most important. The heart holds joy, and it holds love and wisdom. Scientists are now teaching us that even the cosmos itself is sourced by love. There's a feeling in our body when something is meant for us. The more we follow our heart callings, the louder they get and they lead us. Follow the threads of guidance that come through to you and you will always get enough. But you have to take things step by step.
[19:10] A Balance Between Your Heart and Your Logic
The heart is your starting place. Then you turn to logic and reason because that's how flow actually works. Both are needed, not just one. So you need to develop both within yourself. And as you do that, you become stronger, wiser, clearer, and more focused. You don’t want either side to be dominant, so you have to choose both in partnership.
[21:18] Listening to Your Heart
You can feel love in your body. You can feel how every cell in your body tingles with energy when you've got that love sourcing through you. It’s not just about romantic love, but about loving what you're doing. When you're in that flow of writing, or whatever it is you’re doing, there's a lot of love that pours into yourself. When you listen to your heart, you can hear answers. It's not a thundering voice but it's the knowledge that rises up within you.
[04:49] There can be additional callings, usually related to the primary first calling that got you into callings. But yes, it's not just one calling in one lifetime. [05:00]
[06:43] Scientists are now teaching us that even the cosmos and cosmology, the cosmos itself has love, is sourced by love. [06:52]
[19:10] Your heart is your starting place. [19:17]
