7/10 10 ways to see what is in your heart

Posted by on May 1, 2013 at 3:53 am

We have been exploring the concept of our ‘Heart’, that unconscious part of us that is hidden but open to our Creator.  Here are 10 ways to use as a way to explore what is in your Heart.  Try one a week as you venture into this unknown territory.

1.  Learn to catch the inner dialogue, self talk.  What might be the kind of self-talk we would hear the heart saying?  You can find many ‘heart lies’ this way, things the heart believes – that aren’t true.  Such as …..?

7/9 With God’s help we can Explore our Heart

Posted by on March 15, 2013notice at 3:33 am

As we continue with the concept of the Heart, we trust you are taking the time to think through the issues as they come up.  Another interest discription of your Heart is what some people call ‘the Inner Child’.

A.  The Heart behaves much like a child. 

1.  My friend and the Cricket Bat

One illustration of the way the heart reacts is the consequence of being hit by a cricket bat.  In the first scene I’m playing cricket with a friend and accidentally hit his skull with the bat and send him to hospital.  He needs major surgery and his head is in agony.

7/8 Our Personal Filters – Our Personal Heart Sunglasses Influence our Beliefs

Posted by on April 30, 2013about at 1:51 am

Over the years, I have come to respect the power of people’s beliefs.  The thing that has amazed me is that a belief is more than just an idea – it seems to shift the way in which we actually experience ourselves and our lives.  What we believe about ourselves can actually hold us hostage.   It’s true:  “We do not see things as they are.  We see them as we are.”

A belief is like a pair of sunglasses.  When we wear a belief and look at life through it, it is difficult to convince ourselves that what we see is not what is real.  Without sunglasses on, life looks a lot ‘greener’ to us.  Knowing what is real requires that we remember that we are wearing ‘glasses’.

7/7 What is Stored in our Hearts that prevents Total Wholeness

Posted by on April 18, 2013 at 11:08 pm

As we have already mentioned, one good illustration of our Heart is a Treasure House, a Mansion with lots of different rooms.  So what do we fill these rooms with – often that blocks our journey toward Total Wholeness?

1. Firstly there are personal strongholds.

The Heart is concerned about two main things – the pleasures and pains of our life.

This includes such as trauma, un-forgiveness and judgment….or good memories of happy events.

2.  Sometimes, there are lies and half truths our heart has believed about life and about ourselves, God and others.  It is out of these see others and the world around us.

7/6 Some Bible Verses about the Heart

Posted by on March 27, 2013contact at 3:23 am

So far in our study about the Heart, we have seen that our Heart is hidden from us.   It is the unconsciou or the subconscieous  where things get buried.  So our Heart can be in different conditions, even in its relationship to our Creator.

It will help in our study of the Heart to see some of the Bible references:

7/5 So what the condition of my Heart now on the journey to Total Wholeness?

Posted by on March 6, 2013 at 12:50 pm

So far in this series on the Heart, we have learned that we all have a Heart!  Then we saw in our last post that our Heart can be wounded, hardened and in lots of other conditions.  Part of the journey toward Total Wholeness is to find out what condition your Heart is in!

A.  To begin with, we all begin with the heart in the same condition:

1.  Ephesians 4:18 explains this.

“They (meaning us) are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardness of their heart.”

A.  Welcome back

So far we have ventured into the concept of the Heart as one of the seven parts of your personality.  Remember the other parts?  (The mind, the will, the spirit and the Conscience)  One of the greatest truths we have learned in our 20+ years as counsellors has been about the heart.  The more we can help people deal with the root issues in the heart – rather than just the head – the deeper the change and the more healing is likely.

7/3 So how does the Heart apply to Total Wholeness?

In our last post, we began the member of our Boardroom – The Heart.  Check back to that post for a review.

Our physical heart is a multi-chambered organ through which our physical life force flows, our blood. In the same way our spiritual heart is something through which our spiritual life flows. Proverbs 4:23 tells us that the heart is the well spring of life. There appears to be a close connection between our physical and spiritual heart

1.  In the Hebrew the word heart is ‘Leb’ and is defined as the centre of our being.
