What an exciting time to be alive! It can be challenging to be sure, but there is a sense of waking out of a long sleep and exploring the new potential that exists for humankind. There is no growth without some measure of discomfort, that feeling of stretching beyond old limits and the uncertainty of stepping into the unknown.
We are the emerging heart centred beings, gently letting go of the mind centred way of life we once embodied. Little by little, Life reveals to us who we can be, how we can live, how we can relate and what we can create.
What are the new heart values that are emerging now?
Listening to our heart
Listening to your heart for inner guidance is the simplest and most direct way of knowing your own truth. Ask it “does this feel right for me?” The answer may surprise you. It might be something that you have defined as undesirable and yet this could be exactly what you need. A friend of mine was an very commited holistic practitioner. When cancer struck she tried many natural approaches until one day she knew deep inside that she had to have a course of chemotherapy. For years she had been against this approach and yet now, when she tuned in to what was right for her, it appeared as her next step. And that, in addition to all the natural approaches she’d used already, was just what was needed to bring about a full remission. Beyond our ideas and judgements there is an inner knowing about what is right for us now. When we tune in, we may get a surprise, and yet if we follow through on that inner guidance, we will grow.
Dropping old judgements
From the heart’s perspective everything is perfect. When people do something that you judge as wrong, trust that there might be something deeper going on that you are not aware of. Once when I was in India on an Ayurvedic retreat, a very unique spiritual teacher came for treatment. I remember her saying ‘We all have our part to play. Humanity would not evolve without villains like George Bush catalyzing us into action.” After years of making him the bad guy I was forced into looking at life with a wider lense.
We are all connected
The heart knows we are all connected and interdependant. It’s true that we have only just stepped out of the old era where we practiced taking care of our own needs above all else. Now it’s time to drop all that. We need to recognize everyone’s unique contribution on this planet, and feel grateful for so much wonderful diversity. We will thrive as a species only through connection and a WIN-WIN ethos. Competition and US versus THEM are things of the past.
The mind is naturally suspicious but the heart knows how to trust Life. That unexpected bump in the road might be just the thing to propell you to a wonderful new expression of who you can be. When we trust Life we can navigate with a sense of curiosity and wonder. We can listen to it’s whispers and allow it to grow us beyond what we could ever have created using our mind alone. In my early days as a Metamorphic Touch practitioner I had a vision of myself teaching this work all over the world. My mind immediately said no, this is too challenging. But my heart said, pay attention to what I am showing you, this is the new you, the real you that wants to emerge. I did trust that vision and now years later I am so grateful that I did not get in my own way and stop that evolution.
You are always supported
Wherever you are, whatever challenge you may be navigating, whatever dream you want to realise, your heart is your best allie. Listen to it, trust it, open it, grow it. The more you allow it into your life, the more your life becomes the expression of the love you truly are. The more connected you are to your heart, the more connected you will be to the flow of life now!
Much love, Dominique
In 2004, I began training in Metamorphic Technique with it's founder, Gaston Saint-Pierre. I became a practitioner, then a teacher in 2006, which led me to run workshops all around the world. I then created Sacred Life Alchemy, the Co-Create with the Field Manifesting Process, and Heart Listening, three profound healing systems to transform your reality into more of what you want. In 2017, I renamed my teaching Metamorphic Touch to reflect the new insights and perspectives I bring to this approach. Metamorphic Touch is a powerful healing modality to transform your life.
