Do you live in your head or your heart? If you're not really sure, take a look at your life. Are you doing what you love? Is your life flowing effortlessly? Are you filled with joy, peace and content?

If you answered no to one or more of these questions, chances are you're living in your head. So how do you get out of your head and into your heart? The first step is to be aware. Are you Thinking or Feeling your way through things?

Do you have times where you think you should do one thing, but you feel you should do another? Which do you end up following? The Thought or the Feeling? If you're not quite ready to follow those feelings, there is something you can do about that. Begin to Journal when you get those "feelings". Just make note of them, and watch your results from following your thoughts. Are they what you expected? Did you get insight later that your "feelings" were on target?

Once you do this for a short time, you'll begin to notice how often your "feelings" are on the mark. It may surprise you how often you are on target.

Gradually, as you trust your feelings more, you can follow them more often. Before long, you'll find yourself more often in your Heart and out of your Head. And you'll also find yourself living a more joy-filled life too. Note: Did you sing the title like I did? The tune from Get Out of my Dreams ... Get into my Car. Or am I dating myself? LOL

    • Beautiful piece, as always, Bev.  

      As you‘re talking about thought vs. feeling, could that be similar to left brain vs. right brain?  

      I do both, and the older I get the more into the “feeling” side I fall. And I do think things are falling into place. It sure isn’t easy, though.

      You suggested making notes of feelings, the results, etc. I’m a manic journal-keeper from way back. Problem is, I never go back and re-read old journal entries. But I’m going to try to figure out a way to retrieve entries so I can actually learn from my note keeping!

      Thanks for a thought-provoking post.
