I listen to my heart, not the heart.

I often write about my heart.

~ My heart is the ‘measuring stick’ for balance, in my world.

~ I listen to my heart, not my brain.

And when I say ‘my heart’, I do not mean my physical beating heart.

I started to think about feel into that last night.
I reflected on my past wordings.
Are my readers taking me, literally?

I say ‘heart’, because that is what it feels like,
even though the sensation is not ‘located’ in my physical heart.

During the past three plus years,
I was blessed with living within the woods of northern Michigan,
surrounded by woods and water.
I love being with nature.
Nature use to be my ‘therapy’, now it is part of me.

While experiencing my life up north,
many times my heart would grow and expand outwardly.
Sometimes I felt like the energies
that were being emitted from my chest,
would cause me to explode.
It was a beautiful feeling, sensation…

It was a true sensation.
Anything love and/or compassion based,
would ignite the pulsation of my chest.
I could feel my whole body begin to ‘glow’.
My cells were ‘bubbling with joy’.
I loved the sensation.
I still do not have the words to describe it.
And that is okay.

I still experience the heartfelt expansion and happy cells.
Now it is part of my life. I live with it 24/7.
The ‘novelty’ wore off,
the sensation ‘calmed down’
or I simply adjusted to it and
it is now part of my New Normal.

In other posts I have said,
‘Heart Center’ or ‘Heart Chakra’,
grasping for words of clarity.
My post, “Has she gone out of her head!?!”
describes a bit more detail of my ‘heartfelt’ ways.

Chakras are something I learned about on this journey.
I fully believe that there is more to Chakras than we can imagine.
I say that, solely based on my own experiences
with some of my other Chakra points.
And why I did not make the full connection
with my Heart Chakra until now…? Go figure….right?
“The most obvious is the least seen?”

Today I googled Heart Chakra.

Bingo.

That is exactly what I experience.
My (non-physical) Spiritual Heart.
I should have known!

I am forever discovering more of who I am.
This blog is helping to unveil more of my truth.
A truth that is forever changing.
Forever evolving.

    • Poetry, to me, has intended rhymes.

      I use to create ‘incidental’ writings for friends, family. Like my greeting cards, they were written special for them, packed with heartfelt meaning.

      The content contained ‘pieces of them’, composed into a ‘rhyming short story’. I had lots of fun making those and it took a LOT to create one.
      Thank you again! I truly appreciate your interactions. ren

      • Poetic outlook on life and a poetic expression of your vision of life. Rhymes sometimes contribute to that expression, but they are not at all necessary. “She rustled by me as a fragrant apple brunch brimming with flowers and fruit” is from a novel, but it’s pure poetry. Think about it: flowers and fruit cannot possibly be on that branch together, yet it is the author’s poetic vision that transforms the natural way of things in the world.
