Excerpt from Kat McNally’s #reverb challenge:
Today, I want to share with you a life-changing practice I discovered with the help of Rachael Maddox during her gorgeous Do It Meaningfully challenge. Each day for 31 days, I sat quietly for a few moments with my eyes closed and my hand on my heart and asked, “Heart: what do you need?” And then I listened. Sometimes the answer cam in the form of a word. Sometimes an image. Sometimes a sensation.
Try this today. What does your heart have to tell you?
So here I am, keyboard on lap, trying to think what to write for today’s challenge. Nothing is coming to me. I re-read the question. “I sat quietly for a few moments with my eyes closed“. And that is where I’d been doing it wrong – trying to answer with my head, not my heart. Such a revelation, so true of so many moments in life.
So here I am, keyboard on lap, asking my heart for the answer. A quiet revelation…
My heart says thank you. Thank you for listening. Thank you for learning to stop battling against your thoughts and yourself, and learning to be gentle, be forgiving, and be kind. My heart says I’m on the right path.
