I recently attended a Shamanic Journeying introduction. It was an uplifting and moving experience that has left me contemplating heart space in a deeper way.

Can we be in mindful-relationship with all of those who come into our lives?

  • With those who march in with long confident strides

  • With those who dance in as light and airy as the Fey

  • With those who stumble and crawl in unsure, weighted down with awkward and cumbersome loads 

By mindful-relationship, I simply (and profoundly) mean, to be open and curious about the reason and purpose behind the arrival of each and every person in our life, in an ancient shamanic way:

  • With an open mind and heart

  • With no expectations

  • With trust in the higher power

For, if we are the creators of our own physical realities then it would stand to reason that these people have a purpose for showing up in our lives ... welcomed or not. 

So would it not make sense and be a good use of our time to ask our hearts why they are here?  To explore what gifts, wisdoms and teachings we have for one another? And seek to know how we can bless and support each other's journey and evolution?

Imagine living within and from our hearts

The heart, like the brain, generates a powerful electromagnetic field, McCraty explains in The Energetic Heart. "The heart generates the largest electromagnetic field in the body. The electrical field as measured in an electrocardiogram (ECG) is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the brain waves recorded in an electroencephalogram (EEG). HeartMath studies show this powerful electromagnetic field can be detected and measured several feet away from a person’s body and between two individuals in close proximity.”(INSTITUTE OF HEARTMATH - http://www.heartmath.org/free-services/articles-of-the-heart/energetic-heart-is-unfolding.html)

The heart is one of the most important organs in the human body, because it is one of the main mediums for connecting us to each other and the Universe. Conventional science has taught us that the main role of the heart is to pump blood to all the systems of our body. This definition of the heart is not very accurate. Besides pumping blood, the heart also has an intelligence of its own.
According to neurocardiologists, 60 to 65 percent of heart cells are neuron cells, not muscle cells.2 This discovery has helped them develop experiments that have proved the heart works similar to the brain and in some ways is even superior to the brain. This may be the reason that the heart is the first organ to function after conception. Within about 20 days after conception, the heart starts to function, but the brain does not function until after roughly 90 days.(Pao L. Chang - Staradigm)
