Welcome Heart Life Lens®
Between Heart Life Lenses® and it’s mirror opposite, Head Life Lenses®, you self-assess as a Heart Life Lens®.
A gentle reminder before we dig into your Stop Life Lenses® report: to get the most out of your results, I recommend:
- Approach your results with curiosity not judgement.
- Pay attention to that little voice in your head when it reacts with surprise, disbelief etc. In other words watch where you’re focusing and how you react to your Life Lenses® results.
- Have fun! Seriously. Suffering is optional.
Using Life Lenses® will work best for you when you ditch the natural tendency to look only at the strengths of your Life Lenses® and the weaknesses of the other Lenses. To truly shine look for what the other Life Lenses® have to offer you. I promise it’s a ton!
Heart Life Lens® description:
Heart Life Lenses® (a.k.a. you!) would be lost without their intuition. You’re the one who walks into a room and “reads” the vibe instantly. You’re amazing at sizing people up. You focus on feelings; on things that are intangible. You are known for following your hunches.
Heart Life Lenses® on a good day:
Heart Life Lenses® are known for trusting their gut instincts. They pay attention to that indescribable feeling that tells them to move ahead, to take the chance, because everything will be fine.
Equally, when something’s not quite right, they’ll notice that prickly feeling running down their spine as their gut yells, “warning, danger!”
Heart Life Lenses® are known for being quite uncanny — they may not know why they know something but they know it with certainty.
The hairs on the back of their neck can jump up with pom poms pumping with excitement or stand at attention in warning. Either way Heart Life Lenses® are acutely listening. They intuitively “get” what people are saying and more importantly, what they’re not verbalizing. The idea of not being able to emote or rely on their intuition leaves them adrift on a big, blue expansive, lonely ocean.
A dear friend of mine is a good example of a Heart Life Lens®. She’ll be quiet during a conversation for some time and then make a bracingly insightful, spot-on comment. She makes mental acrobatic leaps from one thing to another with grace, being able to intuit when things aren’t quite right.
The hairs on MY arms may tingle when her sensitive radar has somehow, someway come up with something uncanny.
Her insight is blazing. Her intuition is almost ALWAYS spot on.
Sometimes she even makes up words because how she feels can’t be put into typical words.
And she has a beautiful, big, bracing respect for her Heart Life Lens® gifts. It’s a huge part of her identity and her personality.
That’s a Heart Life Lens® example for you. Pay attention to your wise gut, your intuition, and the messages those hairs on the back of your neck are sending you.
Feelings or emotions are the universal language and are to be honoured. They are the authentic expression of who you are your deepest place. Judith Wright
Heart Life Lens® on a bad day (no worries, we all have ‘em):
The idea of facing facts can be disheartening for Heart Life Lenses®. And it can be super hard to accept that sometimes our intuition is plain wrong.
On a really bad day, Heart Life Lenses® might be overrun by their emotions, which blinds them to facts, reality, or perspective.
I was tired. I was overwhelmed. I was nervous. I had a BIG stack of paperwork to fill in: intake forms for a highly specialized assessment for one of my kiddos.
And I was in a very public place — the UN cafeteria.
I buckled down and started filling in the forms.
And then, as I read one of the questions, it hit me. That telltale prickle of the hairs on the back of my neck. The twinge in my gut that began as a tickle and finished as a raw, stabbing pain.
With a torrent of salty tears streaking hotly down my face, I couldn’t see straight. I couldn’t think. I was gobsmacked, hurt, furious.
This form, from a highly respected professional, asked about “mental retardation”. My only thought: if this was how a so-called professional spoke, what kind of prejudices might my kiddo face?
I fled to the bathroom and bawled in private.
While my intuition was bang on and this professional ended up being a nightmare to work with, not to worry, she led us to another, incredible, doctor who was a joy.
Enter a Heart Life Lens® on a bad day, being flooded and overwhelmed by emotions, so much so that thinking straight is impossible.
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essentially invisible to the eye- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the Little Prince
