Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Heart!
Do you believe that you have the power to “figure out” your problems? Do you believe you have to “make things happen?” If so, it might be time to get out of your head, and into your heart!
The truth is, not a one of us “figures out” anything! This might be a blow to the ego (I know it was to mine at least!), but it is a truth worth exploring. We don’t figure out solutions, we only receive them.
We are spiritual beings, inhabiting a physical reality. We have a physical mind, which allows us to perceive our reality, and allows us to make judgements about our reality. We know what we don’t want, and we know what we do want. We are very good at observing what is, and deciding how we would like it to be better.
However, we don’t “physically” create anything through our thoughts. We don’t “make” anything happen through our physical mind.
Creation just isn’t something we can force into place. It isn’t something we “try” to do. Creation, instead, is something that runs through us. Creation, to us, is effortless, and it doesn’t require us to “do” anything. Creation is happening, regardless of what we are “doing.” We’re just here to experience what’s been created.
I’ll explain my perspective on this in a way that has made sense to me:
By my perspective, the whole of the universe is created, and governed by one, grand, infinite consciousness. Some call this consciousness God, some call it the Universe, some call it All That Is, or Source. Whichever label you prefer is valid and acceptable.
It is this grand, infinite consciousness that creates everything. The infinite/higher consciousness sets the planets into orbit. The infinite consciousness makes sure your heart is beating. The infinite consciousness sets the seasons, the weather, and every little detail in our physical reality.
After all, 99.99999% of what’s going on in your reality right this moment simply came to you. You didn’t “make it happen.” You didn’t try to think up all the details, like the color of the sky, the temperature of the room and the sounds going on in the background. You just received them.
As I’ve come to understand it, you and I are simply perspectives of the infinite consciousness. We are the consciousness experiencing reality in a physical form.
Our physical minds allow us to perceive the reality the higher consciousness has created, and it allows us to form judgments about this reality. It allows us to identify what we like, and what we don’t like. However, the creation is being handled beyond us. It is our broader being, our higher consciousness, that is putting all the pieces together.
The true work of creation, therefore, is going on behind the scenes. In other words, it is not our job to put it all together, rather it is simply our job to receive and perceive of what has been created.
Now, this doesn’t mean we don’t have any power. We most certainly do! We, after all, ARE perspectives of the infinite consciousness. We have the power to receive and perceive anything we want!
As physical beings, we are equipped with a very important tool to help us do this: our emotions.
Our emotions are a guide that let us know how fully we are surrendering our preferences to the infinite consciousness. When we feel good, we are in a state of full surrender to the higher consciousness. We allow creation to flow through us at an infinitely powerful rate.
When we are feeling good, we are fully connected to the higher consciousness and therefore things run very smoothly for us. The higher consciousness lines up all of the details of our reality in the way we most prefer. The higher consciousness puts all of the pieces together based on our judgements and preferences. It knows, after all, what we want, because it IS us.
So we have already done the job of perceiving our reality and deciding what we want, and when we feel good we entrust our reality to our higher self, the infinite consciousness. We allow the infinite consciousness to create on our behalf, and it does a pretty good job-because it is infinitely intelligent and capable of figuring everything out for us!
When we feel bad, however, we are in a state of resistance to the higher consciousness. Instead of surrendering the control of creation to the infinite creator, we (as physical minds) try to do the work we simply cannot do.
For example, if your desire is to get to work on time, you absolutely have to toss over the keys of creation over to the higher consciousness. After all, you cannot control who is in traffic. You cannot control the weather. You cannot control who is going to let you in and who is going to cut you off. You cannot control construction, slow moving cars, school buses, ambulances and accidents.
You certainly cannot control all of these details simultaneously! It doesn’t matter how smart you are, it just can’t be done because it’s a job beyond your physical capabilities. Can you even imagine trying to synchronize all of these events? Just thinking about trying to do this makes me tired!
The good news is you do not have to control any of this. All of the details that have the power to let you travel to work quickly or slowly are handled by our infinite consciousness, not by your physical mind.
Your only job, therefore, is to perceive your reality, decide what you want, and then toss over the keys of creation to the higher consciousness. It’s really all about allowing the infinite consciousness to do its job.

This is such an important thing to understand about creation, because so many of us have been raised to believe that it is our JOB to control circumstances, figure out problems and make things happen. However, nothing could be further from the truth.
When you get out of your head, and get into your heart you do yourself a huge favor.
You allow the infinite consciousness to do it’s job, and you allow yourself to be guided by your emotions (which is all you can really do in your physical state). You stop trying to think up the solutions, and you simply allow the solutions to be drawn to you. You also save yourself a lot of time, effort and frustration!
Remember, you are simply a perspective of the infinite consciousness. You are equipped with a physical mind which allows you to fully experience this physical reality, and it allows you to make judgements on what you prefer. You are also equipped with your emotions, which serve as your guide to let you know when you are allowing the higher consciousness to create your preferences through you and when you are resisting it.
Do your job, and listen to your emotions. Let the higher consciousness do the creating, and trust that it’s better equipped to get the job done. Living a preferred reality takes a lot less effort than many people would have you believe.
So the next time you find “trying to make things happen,” do yourself a favor: get out of your head, and listen to your heart! Place a higher premium on your emotions, and let them guide you into a fuller connection with the infinite consciousness. Don’t make it happen; let it happen.

I can’t get on board with this one whatsoever. I believe I understand the general message you are trying to give, but it’s taken too far. This to me implies you have to do nothing in life to get what you want. That you have no control of any of the things that surround you. We have choices we make every day and they affect both ourselves and those around us. While we can’t control the traffic on the way to work, we can control whether or not we leave early to accomodate for said traffic. Life isn’t some virtual tour at a theme park. I’m sorry if my comment seems harsh. Perhaps, it was the wording of the article.
Hi Joshua, I hear what you are saying!
Sometimes, my message comes across differently than intended, and that’s ok. My ultimate point with this one was to say that our most joyous creation comes when we are well aligned and connected with “source.” When we are connected, we allow our genius to flow without having to try so hard. When we overthink, we disconnect ourselves from this source, and therefore cut off our creative genius.
I am a big believer that you ARE source consciousness, having a human experience. Therefore you have ultimate control over the “theme park” so to speak. You control the theme park through your beliefs, expectations and feelings…so when you are highly connected, it just all falls into place. When we aren’t, it falls into disrepair so to speak.
Perhaps this resonates better, but regardless, I appreciate that you have been checking out my blog and providing your feedback. Have a great day <3
Very good article with key ingredients.Also the title has valuable impact.Because the heart(field) is most powerful.I guess you work/know about the heart brain coherence.I use it – and it can transport you very quickly in a balanced,serene emotional state.And i love that you always point out the importance of a lighthearted emotional state.The fuel for manifesting,so to speak.And a better health.Especially in these transformative times :-).Have a great end of Weekend. 😀
