“Allow your inner self to guide you and awaken remembrance in you that brings you back to the soul nature of living in happiness and harmony on purpose.” Gratitude + Forgiveness x(Love) = Happiness, by Aimee Mosco and Donald L. Ferguson, Foreword viii

We all know what it means to “follow your heart”. It is a phrase that reminds you to get out of your head and let your feelings guide you. That is all well and good when you are focused on love, but what happens when you are not? When your emotions take direction from anger or resentment, that can be pretty dicey advice!  

The sacred heart, however, does not recognize volatile emotions such as rage or fear-based feelings like disappointment. It is in direct communication with your inner Spirit, the part of you that exists above and beyond ego. Emotions that are misaligned with happiness and harmony do not register or exist in the space where your sacred heart resides.

Your ego is responsible for corrupting your emotions and commandeering the guidance that comes from your heart if you are not fully paying attention. When you “follow your heart” under these conditions, your ego is in full control of whatever comes next. In some instances, that works out alright, but often the results are not what you had anticipated. Either way, it is important to understand that you are not functioning as an empowered creator if you are allowing your ego to influence your decisions.

If your goal is to create happiness in its highest form, it is helpful to give power to your sacred heart. When you acknowledge this deep part of yourself with attention, and fuel it with your focus, you draw from your divine power source and become a force guided by true love.

It is not necessary to perform a ceremony to connect with your sacred heart. It is sufficient to simply make an agreement with your inner self to let this part of you preside over heart guidance. Then follow up with some focused attention when you are looking for specific guidance and pay close attention to what you are feeling deep inside. Feelings of harmony and peace from the depths are signs of sacred heart intervention. Insecurity and fear are markers for the influence of ego.

If you want to do some energy work to reinforce your request for guidance, gently tap on your thymus chakra (also known as your sacred heart chakra, located approximately 2 inches below the hollow of your throat) while stating the intention “I choose to follow the guidance of my sacred heart over my ego.”
