How to Live from Your Heart Deepen Relationships, Develop Creativity & Discover Inner Wisdom MSI Press • 9781942891246 • nanettevhucknall.com
How might you convince those unfamiliar with concepts like “heart energy” and “higher selves” to approach them with an open mind?
These are just other names for what’s already inside you. When you love someone, when you feel compassion, when you feel joy that is heart energy. And when you ponder something deeply, get in touch with your inner wisdom that is using your Higher Self.
What practices mentioned in your book have you personally found most fruitful?
When relating to others, when solving problems, when developing creativity, when trying to find inner peace – these are all areas where I connect with my heart and Higher Self. The book has stories and exercises to help with this.
What do we most miss when we choose to live apart from our higher selves?
The Higher Self is always there, even when we don’t connect. It is part of us. We unconsciously use it when we love others, feel compassion, and want to help those in need, etc.
When we consciously work with it, it can help us so much more, in all the areas of our life. It has the knowledge of who we really are, how we can connect to wisdom, and also how we can link to the spirit within.
Do concepts like these have heightened relevance in these tumultuous times? Why or why not?
Most definitely. Connecting to your Higher Self gives you a feeling of inner peace and calmness. It enables you to look at chaotic events happening in the world and instead of feeling sorrowful emotions, you can feel compassion for those who are suffering. Compassion and prayer, if it is sent from the heart, is an energy that can go to those people and comfort them. It also gives you the ability to know what right action you can take to help change what is happening, whether it is in your community or in the world.
