HEART AS COMPASS
Love is Observable, Powerful
Love is also intuitive and sensory. Our hearts connect to the subtle energies of the world and can help us sort through the distractions of modern day living, attract what we desire, and communicate across complex dimensions. This is real and truly the center of our personal power.
Heart, The 6th Sense
Let's explore this via the movie select for lion, "Interstellar". As you recall, this film brillantly centers on the mysterious powers of love while chronicling the heroism of brave humans attempting to save the human race.
A team of cosmonauts take off into outer space to find a planet that may be capable of sustaining human life. The film explores the power of love as an intuitive force that defies all reason. Dr. Brand, the only female cosmonaut on the mission, leads from her brave heart in this pivotal moment:
"Love isn’t something we invented. It's observable. Powerful. Maybe it’s some evidence, some artifact of a higher dimension that we can’t consciously perceive. I’m drawn across the universe to someone I haven’t seen in a decade, who I know is probably dead. Love is the one thing we’re capable of perceiving that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that, even if we can’t understand it yet.”
In our human world that arranges itself as "power over" rather than "power with", we find ourselves relying on the rational mind to take the lead, yet this is only part of the whole. As Dr. Brand points out, it can even be nihilistic. We need to move into dialogue between the heart and mind – where mind intelligence bows to heart intelligence.
ABOVE THE LINE IS HEART
In our journey map, notice how our work together is moving you from ego isolation into new states of awakened heart. Notice how living an above the line life feels natural, resilient, and full of creation.
It can help the process of reclaiming heart as center by physically going there.
You'll need your lavender oil for this.
When ready, place a drop in your left palm. Then, slowly rub it clock wise with your other hand to activate the oil and open your heart chakra. Now, close your eyes and place your hands over your heart and center your attention there. Drop in to your heart compass. This is your power center. Your love center. Your intuition center. This is you.
