Manifesting from the Heart: Discover YOUR “Soul Purpose”
I had a powerful experience with the magic of manifesting through the heart, before I really understood it.
My once happy life took an abrupt and devastating turn when, within only four months, my husband was diagnosed with brain cancer and passed away. My heart was shattered. His death at the young age of forty-two impressed upon me even more just how precious and fragile the gift of life is and how quickly the unlimited possibilities inside all of us can be extinguished.
"It became crystal clear that the greatest
gift of all is LIFE and the LOVE we
experience along our journey."
It became crystal clear that the greatest gift of all is LIFE and the LOVE we experience along our journey. A part of my heart died with my husband’s passing, and I faced a choice: To give up on love, or to pick myself up and fight for the optimistic light that once burned bright inside me. After years of “being” the deep grief and loss that consumed me, processing and working through the pain, and slowly putting my life, and my children’s lives, back together again, I began to emerge through my darkest days, driven by a deep desire to embrace life once again.
As I moved forward through my healing I established an unwavering belief in my deepest soul desires. What I did not fully understand, until much later, is that I was intuitively connecting to my heart’s energetic field. This field pulsates a real, physical power that I was connecting to and could feel deep inside me. Even when my subconscious mind put forth barriers of doubt and disbelief, I would continue to go back to my heart center, surrendering to a higher power to guide me.

I never gave up. I continued to believe. And I stayed centered in my hearts’ desire to manifest the life I desired. The more I opened up to my soul's path through love and the power of heart centered belief the more my awareness of "signs" and guidance from the universe unfolded right in front of my eyes. I experienced a deeper intuitive awareness that continued to guide me on my path towards my soul's purpose. This “Heart-path” continues to feed my soul with a much deeper sense of inner peace and harmony that resonates within the deepest part of my core. Miracles continued to unfold in my life as the synergy of my heart energy and soul purpose continue to align as they work together energetically.
I became fascinated with the process of manifesting through the heart center and the magic that continues to happen over and over again at our "Heart of Manifestation" workshops.
The change in each participant is undeniable as they open up and tap into their heart-centered power to create the life they desire. One of the amazing young women that attended our workshop gave the following testimony that eloquently relays the power of truly taping into your heart center:
“I learned to trust myself. That I have a voice. That my voice is powerful. I learned to always go back to compassion for others. I learned that I am strong and capable of living the life I want. And most importantly, I learned that everything I am, everything I want to be, and everything before me is already inside of me. And I am exactly where I need to be in any given moment.”
Experiencing the amazing life-changing transformations that took place during our weekend workshop/retreats gave me a hunger to delve into more research to discover a deeper understanding of the power of heart-centered living. The scientific data regarding manifesting through the power of the heart was fascinating. As I continued to educate myself I opened up to a deeper understanding of why I had experienced such profound miracles and synchronicity in my life. I realized that I had intuitively tapped into the deepest part of myself, my "heart center" at a time I was the most vulnerable and seeking guidance!
My heart's universal energy was always there. I just had not learned how to tap into it fully. That power is inside each and every one of us.
Starting back in the womb, as you begin life, your heart is the first organ created. We are all formed in the sacred space of our mother's womb while being serenaded by the constant calming rhythm of her heartbeat pulsating in synchronicity with ours.
There is a calming peace and connection to our "core soul" and life purpose that our energetic body can connect to if we tune into our heartbeat.I searched to have a clearer understanding of why the heart is the first organ to function during the fetal development process. And this is what I discovered:
Within about 20 days after conception, the heart starts to function, but the brain does not function until after roughly 90 days. This information suggests that the brain is secondary to the heart. One of the reasons why the heart is the first organ to function is because of the electromagnetic field generator that acts like a broadcasting device. Studies have discovered that the heart is about 100,000 times stronger electrically and up to 5,000 times stronger magnetically than the brain.
"Studies have discovered that the heart

electrically and up to 5,000 times
stronger magnetically than the brain."
As the heart beats, it sends out electromagnetic waves that contain essential information. These waves of information are received by all cells of the fetus; therefore, they affect how the fetus is developed.
According to Neurocardiologists, 60 to 65 percent of heart cells are neuron cells, not muscle cells. This discovery has led them to develop experiments proving that the heart works similarly to the brain and is, in some ways, even superior to the brain. A study cited in Huffpost stated; “The heart is one of the most important organs in the human body, because it is one of the main mediums for connecting us to each other and the Universe.”
Everything I was experiencing from being connected to my heart began to make more sense the further I researched, soaking up the information like a thirsty sponge. At first, the idea of accessing your heart’s energy to manifest may seem a little otherworldly (or as others may say, a bit woo-woo). But as I continued to read about the documented scientific research it became obvious that it’s not as strange as you may think.
As we still the mind and really become one with the calming pulsating life rhythm of our heart, our life force, we begin to feel a sense of stillness. This stillness and being one with your heart energy can guide you to a deeper understanding of your higher calling and purpose in life.
The saying, "the heart knows the way,” comes to mind as I remember the moment I surrendered to a higher power to guide me to my heart's desires.
It was not easy to continue to follow my heart’s path. No, it was challenging to say the least to continue to overcome the barriers and obstacles that my subconscious mind would whisper in my ear as it played off of my deeply ingrained fear and doubt. It took years to build up the walls that protected my strong, yet very fragile heart. Intuitively I knew in order to truly live a life centered in peace, love and joy I would have to learn to trust and really become attuned to the deepest part of my heart and soul. The subconscious mind holds approximately 90% of our thoughts, fears, memories and reactions that often stop us from moving forward towards that which our heart desires. Accessing our heart’s intuitive intelligence can make us better communicators and decision-makers.

As babies, we begin to hear "no" or "don't do that.” Words that protect us also start to form our limitations and fears. Then, as we grow older, the ego starts to rear its ugly head. As we yearn to live a life centered in inner peace and love we often end up struggling with our ego and fears that are controlled by our subconscious mind instead of connecting back to our core — the heart.
As I researched further, I became fascinated by the studies and information that came from the HeartMath Institute Research Center. For over 30 years, their scientist and hundreds of independent researchers have explored the physiological mechanisms by which the heart and brain communicate and how the activity of the heart influences our perceptions, emotions, intuition, and health. New research shows the human heart is much more than an efficient pump that sustains life. Their research suggests the heart is also an access point to a source of wisdom and intelligence that we can call upon to live our lives with more balance, greater creativity and enhanced intuitive capacities. The heart has been considered the source of emotions, courage and wisdom for centuries. A student of Plato and tutor to Alexander the Great, Aristotle believed and taught a cardio-centric model of human anatomy where the heart was the true center of human intelligence and not the brain.

In today’s fast-paced, crazy world, more and more people are experiencing increasing restlessness, energy drain, and overwhelm. Humanity as a whole is beginning to feel a deeper calling for peace and calm, along with deeper love and understanding towards one another. Intuitively they find themselves seeking to live in a heart-centered way of life.
