6 Questions to Heighten Your Heart's Intelligence

Your heart is your internal GPS. It contains neurons and processes information, much like your brain. Of course, instead of communicating in words, your heart's language is feelings.

When you ignore your feelings, you close the channel of communication between your heart and your brain, which limits your ability to perform at your best.

How many times have you heard someone say, “I had a feeling about that, but I just didn’t listen.” That’s because most of us in western society haven’t been trained how to listen to our bodies. Fortunately, with mindfulness, this trend is changing. 

Tuning in to your heart

Pausing to slow down, tune into your body, and focus your attention on your feelings may be an unfamiliar practice, but it's a great way to re-open the lines of communication from within and give you access to deeper levels of inner intelligence.

Six questions to heighten your heart’s intelligence

Consider the qualities of the heart – among them are courage, compassion, care, vulnerability, honor, and valor.  You can give your inner GPS an upgrade by tuning into your heart, focusing on what you feel inside, and asking these questions slowly to yourself. Listen for the answers in your body, not in your intellect.

  • Where do you sense courage within you?
  • What does compassion feel like in your body?
  • Who or what do you care deeply about? 
  • When or where do you feel safe to be vulnerable?
  • What qualities do you honor most?
  • How do you measure valor? 

The greatest philosophers of the ages have told us that the nobility of the human heart is what gives life depth, meaning and purpose. These qualities represent the highest values in the human experience. 

Your heart is your internal GPS. Taking a few minutes to mindfully tune into the intelligence of your heart on a regular basis can provide valuable information to guide your decision making and enhance your ability to live your best life.
