Journey of the Heart – Day 06

Spend about 15-20 minutes with the guiding thought, and then let your heart speak through words, pictures, colors, shapes, whatever feels right. I’ve supplied a link below to an audio of me doing the guiding thought–use it if you like to create, while listening to it play on a loop (that’s what I do). Scroll to the bottom for my sharing…

Day 06 Guiding Thought

I listen to my heart and with my heart.

My heart pays attention to others, listening to their inner voice, their unspoken words.

I care and attend, with love, to their deeper, silent needs, asking their heart, “How may I strengthen you and raise your energy?”

This was so far the most difficult picture to draw—you will notice that it is the most abstract drawing yet, too. I sat for many minutes trying to feel/visualize how to express the Guiding Thought.

In the end, looking at the picture, it is about interconnection, the butterfly effect as it pertains to human relationships, in a sense. Supporting one person’s heart energy cannot help but support everyone’s heart energy, and we all are lifted.

I also notice that “I” am not represented distinctly. There is no symbol of “me” that stands out in this picture. All are equal. All are unique. All contribute to the entire picture.

 

*I developed this guiding thought (but did not do the Journey) the day before I had a meeting with one of the most sophisticated minds on the planet—an intellectual known for his mathematical acumen. While I was in that meeting, this Guiding Thought popped into my mind; it occurred to me that people so strongly intellectual (including myself, but not to his degree) might be able to “use” some heart energy. So I quickly brought my attention to my heart, felt love-as-light go to his heart, and my heart asked, “How may I strengthen you and raise your energy?”

A lot was going on, and heart-energy can be very subtle (though I think I am learning of its power), so I cannot verify that “something happened” concerning it during our exchange…but it felt good…and I was glad that I was present enough to remember my heart in the midst of intellectual exchange.

Day 05 Guiding Thought

I bring my awareness to my heart and resonate with its love.

Naturally and easily my heart-love radiates through me.

Love is present now—rippling in to the future, releasing the past.

When drawing these pictures, I never have a plan—I don’t know what I’m going to draw at the outset. I spend a few minutes listening to the Guiding Thought, getting a feel for it. I let colors, shapes, images, symbols come in to my imagination and then I just start. I don’t really even think about the colors. I have all my colored pencils laid out beside me and glance over at them, picking one out where my gaze falls, or I “see” a color in my mind and use it. Sometimes I get a general impression about where the picture will be going, but at every point, I kind of have a sense of “Oh, this line goes here…and that curve goes there.” It all seems to work out.

I’ve been very fascinated for a long time with geometry. I love the symmetry, balance, and beauty of it. I have a feeling that geometry is a language all its own, one we humans have yet to learn – or have forgotten.

Some of that language comes out in this picture. I feel like it is “saying” more than I really understand, with such simplicity. The heart jewel is both within me and surrounding me, and the inner and outer are connected and proportional, yet also independent of each other.

I also love, in this picture, how the “releasing of the past” is so vibrant. I feel it is so important to break-up, dissolve, and heal past actions/thoughts/beliefs, so that the present and future can be more clear and pure. I felt, while drawing, the past was being released….yet…my conscious mind did not have a grasp on the truly deep significance and effects of it.
