You Can’t Think Your Way Into Reality

Ten Directions
Feb 7 · 7 min read
  1. Close your eyes and drop your attention into the heart space in the center of your chest.
    Notice the rising and the falling of your breath as it occurs naturally, from the point of view of this space.
  2. Like peeling an orange, shed the tough outer layers of your thinking mind and tune into the more subtle dimensions of your experience. Bring your attention even closer to the sensations alive in this space.
  3. Now, with your attention in your heart space, place an inquiry inside of your energetic heart — ask your heart for example: How do you feel?
  4. Stay open to the subtle flow of information, allowing your heart to answer. Notice is there color, shape, pattern or texture. Are there words or emotion for you to receive?
  5. Bring your attention close to whatever emerges. Focus on the felt experience and stay away from narrative or asking ‘why’ something is emerging.
  6. Allow the information to ripple out and wash over your body as it dissipates.
    When you’re finished listening, gently open your eyes, maintaining the heart connection for as long as possible.
