How can I work more with the heart?

Higher Self Yoga teaches seekers how to make mindful decisions with their hearts, or intuitions, while using the mind to navigate complex emotions. Through key exercises, we will show you how to tune into your own heart center while aligning with the hearts of those around you. Connecting with the heart is not simply an internal process; it includes putting aside our own needs and concerns to connect with the needs of the world around us.

How Can I Remain Present and Grounded Through Working with the Higher Self and the Heart?

Through the practice of meditation and connecting with your inner spiritual guide, the Higher Self, you can bring out the peace of the Wise Mind. During busy seasons, it can be difficult to remain present and grounded. There are a myriad of distractions that we face everyday, from work, to family – and even leisure activities can be easily prioritized over daily connection with the heart center. If you feel overwhelmed during the day, it may help to consciously think of and connect with the inner power of your heart to stay present, centered and above all fearless as you continue your journey with the Higher Self. Take deep, slow breaths and feel the positive vibrations that come from taking a moment to ground yourself.

If the answer feels right to you, try to follow it.  [After you’ve tried following the suggestion from your heart, again consult your heart on how the approach can be improved.] ” (How to Live from Your Heart, p.22)
