Gratitude opens the Heart and maintains heart coherence. An open, coherent Heart allows the mind to perceive correctly, increases awareness, and will improve the quality of your life experience.
Watch the video lesson and/or read the transcript below.
We began this course by increasing our Awareness, exploring new ways to think about and relate to the human Mind.
We then used the physical life experience created by the Mind to identify fear-based beliefs, and reduce their emotional energy by writing them down.
In Part 3 we found that accessing the Heart for Love-based Truth is as natural as breathing.
And in Part 4 we wrapped everything up by throwing away the fear-based beliefs you wrote on Post It Notes, and filing the Love-based Truth you wrote on index cards.
Years ago, when I first started teaching the Heartcompass LifeNavigation System, my biggest concern had been that people might not know how to access their Heart for the Truth.
But the biggest challenge, it turns out, has nothing to do with the process itself. When I asked people what their greatest obstacle was to achieving success with the LifeNavigation System, they said it was remembering to use it.
Like any new habit or practice, we need something to remind us and keep us motivated.
It is so easy to get distracted and even totally derailed by life's drama.
Life's drama is part of the Illusion of Separation, and can give us the material we need to identify false fear-based beliefs and replace them with Love-based Truth.
Most of the time, at least in the beginning, these opportunities can be missed because we choose to get caught up in the drama and attempt to "fix" the outer situation. And if we can't fix it then we want to talk about it with others, to gain sympathy and support so we won't feel so alone.
But there is a tool you can use to help you avoid this trap, to remember to use your Heartcompass LifeNavigation System, and stay On-Course for creating A Mind With Heart.
That "tool" is a feeling that we call Gratitude.
Gratitude is a quality of Love. Love and Gratitude are expressions of the Truth that everything is connected.
You can begin by choosing to feel grateful for the drama that life throws in your way.
Without this drama you could not become aware of how the Mind works, and you would not be able to identify the fear-based beliefs that create it.
Feeling grateful for life experience that helps you identify fear-based beliefs is the first step.
Next, you will want to feel and express your gratitude for the manifestations of thoughtforms given substance by Love-based Truth.
You can do this easily and effectively by keeping a Gratitude Journal. This is so easy to do, and it is the single most useful thing you can do to remain On-Course and Creating A Mind With Heart.
Just keep a journal next to your bed, and before you go to sleep at night write down at least five things you experienced during the day that you were grateful for. It can be the simplest of things, or the biggest. What matters are the feelings of Love, Gratitude, and Appreciation.
Gratitude is the key that opens the gateway of the spiritual Heart.
Using the Mind to create feelings of Gratitude, and accessing the spiritual Heart for Heart Intelligence, will do more for your growing awareness and consciousness than hours of meditation, study, or any other spiritual practice.
Opening the Heart opens the sixth sense, the third eye - the means of perception that allows spirit to see and occupy physical life experience.
It will change the way you see the world. It will transform how you feel and act within it.
Gratitude is the key that opens the spiritual Heart and increases Awareness.
Perceiving reality with greater Awareness increases feelings of Gratitude.
It is an ongoing positive feedback loop that will keep you motivated, On-Course and on your way to Creating A Mind With Heart and the Love-based life experience A Mind With Heart will create for you.
You now know how to Create A Mind With Heart, and how to stay On-Course by creating feelings of Gratitude.
