Your Head to Your Heart Trick to Try

Guest Blog by Dr. Melissa Bird

Intro by Stacey

While I was going through my journey of climbing up from rock bottom, I first heard the phrase “The longest distance is from your head to your heart.” Admittedly, it took me a while to understand that this simple phrase represents so much: to me it’s about ego vs authentic self; being so smart that you don’t listen to your intuition; having faith vs outsmarting the expected outcome; and more. Once I understood the concept, I started seeing it in others. It became a goal for me to be “heart-centered.” Now, guiding you, dear reader, how to shift your perspective to becoming more adventurous includes you learning to trust your heart.

Fast forward to these past few weeks. I have become a “heart-centered” entrepreneur, and met another one during an virtual accelerated sales and marketing course. Missy, aka Dr. Melissa Bird. While she is launching fundraisers to buy land for a future retreat (The Mermaid’s Garden), she also runs Rebel School and has an ebook “Natural Born Rebel.” While checking out her website, I read some of her blog posts. Her direct way discussing the head to heart connection appealed to me, and (with her permission) am sharing with you!

A little trick for dropping out of your head and into your heart

Each time I do Rebel School I give the gift of this poem by Nikita Gill to my clients:

Heartfelt a poem by Nikita Gill

It is a solid reminder that when you drop out of your head and into your heart you can see your calling so clearly it is like looking through glass.

Here is a little trick to drop out of your head and into your heart.

  1. Feel your feet on the floor. Go ahead. Just feel them there.
  2. Place your hand on your heart.
  3. Close your eyes and take a big deep breath in through your nose and out through your mouth.
  4. With your eyes closed count to 10.
  5. Open your eyes and smile.

You are exactly who we need right now.

You are exactly who we have been waiting for.

You are exactly who we are looking for.

I see you.

Thank you for being you.

I love you.

Carry on.
