“Your heart knows the way. Run in that direction.” ~ Rumi
Recently, I have been contemplating this favorite Rumi quote. I’ve been putting this wisdom into practice, and encouraging my coaching clients to do the same. Your heart, if you really listen carefully, does know what it needs, and is always trying to tell you. Yet how often do you doubt the message you hear? It is tempting to dismiss your intuition, or not trust what is actually a deep knowing. And then what? You end up running in the wrong direction. Big bummer. Waste of time. Waste of empowerment. Instead, why not commit to allowing the mystery of your heart’s calling to guide you through a day, just one day? Try it as an experiment. Really attend to what your heart is calling out for, and move in that direction. Confidently. Experience what it feels like to TRUST yourself. Enjoy the empowerment of where trusting yourself can take you. It will always be to a HIGHER place. A better place. A more meaningful place. And then more magic happens. For when we begin trusting a “heart calling,” it gets easier to follow the next one. And the next. Before you realize it, you will be embracing your own divine guidance system. Maybe you will even begin RUNNING in the direction it is leading you.
