How to Listen to Your Heart, When Your Mind Disagrees


People are not machines, we have feelings, and we develop them for something: our own good. If, when you are about to perform an action or when you about to meet someone your heart is telling you something, perhaps it throws a warning. Even if it is uncomfortable and you prefer to ignore it, listen to it and take it into consideration.

It is difficult to listen to the heart when there is much noise outside, we pay attention to so many things that we forget to listen to ourselves. We need to sit for a moment, breathe deeply and observe everything around us: nature and how great life is. If we look with the eyes of the heart everything is more beautiful, And we see the hand of God in everything. Do not ignore the voice of your heart.

 

Do not ignore the voice of your heart.

How to Listen to Your Heart

No matter how much you have suffered or cried, life will always provide new opportunities there to grasp them in time and listen to what the heart says because he is not wrong.

Many times the heart has tried to warn us about someone that doesn’t suit us. Or has alerted us that an action we are about to take is not good for us to do … but we did not listen to what our heart told us and we finished getting hurt or hurting people who love us.

“Why do we have to listen to our hearts?” the boy asked.
“Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you will find your treasure.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

It is possible to feel when you are doing things well and correctly – your face changes, your eyes light up and that’s when you realize that following what your heart is dictating is the best. Many times we think that the heart is making a mistake and we have preferred not to listen; First think with the head and then with the heart.

You have to think with your head but listen to the heart. Because the decisions that are made in that way cannot be wrong. If we change our minds and say that it was not the best decision, I can assure you that if you could go back, you would do it again, because at that precise moment that was the best option.

 

We must learn to listen and not only to hear.

How to Listen to Your Heart

To observe and not just to see. To learn that if we fall we can get up and move on with our lives. No matter how many times we fall, we can always get up.

Listen as your heart wants to stay alive. No matter how much you have been hurt because we have all been through difficult times. It may hurt to get up and trust. But, in spite of all that your heart continues to beat, it wants to return to love. To love you, your family, your friends and especially life.

How to Listen to Your Heart

We must not let the pain of a bad love to change our lives or decisions. Stand up with your head up, salute worthy of that relationship and say goodbye; Give yourself time, and keep going.

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Put your hand on your heart and listen to it that, despite all this pain, it is beating and wants to stay alive. Look to the future, you will see that there are new things waiting for you. Do not let yourself be beaten, life is beautiful.

Please, the next time you speak your heart, take time and listen to it.
