How to Enrich Your Life

How to Enrich Your Life


One of the most wonderful aspects of living from the heart is how it enhances the positive-feeling textures of life. When my heart is open, food tastes better, the roses in my garden look more vibrant, the scents of trees are sweeter and the warm-heartedness of friends touches me more deeply.

We all want to experience more enriched textures, and the heart is the key. Our heart is the main doorway by which spirit flows into the human system. HeartMath founder Doc Childre, describes this in his article “Heart-Based Living,”. I’d like to share some of his article with you below.

When you are not connected with your heart, it diminishes the feeling textures in your life’s experiences. When life becomes dry, boring and bordering on depression, you’re experiencing diminished spirit flow in your system. Through learning to reconnect with your heart by putting out heart qualities like love, appreciation, compassion, and forgiveness, you reactivate your spirit, which increases the feeling textures of your experience, bringing you more positive feelings, such as joy and happiness.

“People often intuitively sense that increasing their genuine compassion and appreciation for others will generate more positive-feeling textures of experience. There is a wealth of overlooked physical benefits as well. Practicing these and other heart qualities is basic bottom-line maintenance for mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health. When you do not reactivate these feeling textures, stress begins to stack up in your system.

Becoming more of who you really are releases inner security, allowing you to relate to life with increased hope and confidence. Increased fulfillment is the result of this process.”

Reconnecting with your heart is not hard. Here’s an exercise you can try when life feels dry or when you are stressed.

Exercise: Take five minutes to breathe in the feeling of appreciation or intentional calm through your heart or chest area then breathe out the feeling of appreciation through your heart area. This exercise will help bring your mind and emotions into alignment with your heart’s intuitive guidance and begin to reactivate the positive-feeling textures of life.

For a long time I've found it hard to come round to the view that only money brings happiness, although everybody else believes it.

Remembering to count your blessings is important. The question that impacted my life the most is: What would you do if you woke up in the morning with only the things for which you thanked God the night before? Now I make sure I'm thankful for the important people/pets/things in my life. It has made a difference in how I view things.
