The 4-Step Process For Using Your Heart To Manifest Your Ideal Life

The 4-Step Process For Using Your Heart To Manifest Your Ideal Life

The 4-Step Process For Using Your Heart To Manifest Your Ideal Life 4720 3029 Christina Lopes

The Universe is a “manifestation machine”, and each and every one of us works that machine.

Simply put, we co-create all of our experiences. But how exactly do we “work the machine”? How do we manifest every single particle of matter that shows up in our lives? The answer is we use two powerful and magnificent centers:

The mind and the heart.

The process goes something like this. Picture a fisherman throwing his net out into the ocean. You’re the fisherman and the net represents the electromagnetic field of your mind or heart. The fisherman (you) waits, feels movement and hauls in his catch. All the fish trapped in the net symbolize your reality. One fish can be your partner, the other your job, yet another your home, and so on.

And like the fisherman that throws out his net before he catches fish, your mind and heart also set the stage in advance for what you end up receiving.

A great deal of attention has been given to the powerful influence of the mind in manifestation— especially after the Law of Attraction was popularized by books such as The Secret. The mind is an astounding phenomenon of brain circuitry and it’s immensely powerful in manifesting what it wants.

But what if I told you the heart is even more powerful?

According to the Heart Math Institute, the heart has the strongest electromagnetic field in the body, 60 times greater than the brains’. Yet, we seem to give the mind much more decision-making influence over our lives and hence, our reality.

My experience has taught me that the mind can manifest a whole lot of drama and suffering if we let it. The heart does no such thing. The manifestations powered by our hearts never lead us astray because the heart center is our connection with the Universe and our Higher Selves.

Our hearts know exactly what we are supposed to do in this life—if we only listen. On the other hand, the mind carries a lot of baggage that influences what we believe, think, and ultimately, manifest.

So if the heart is indeed so much more powerful than the mind and it knows exactly what is best for us, why on earth don’t we listen to it more?

Well, it’s just easier that way. Our consciousness is easily drawn into the drama our minds create—especially when the thoughts generated cause fear. Fear is powerful and can easily get your attention.

The heart speaks to us through emotion, instinct, intuition, or “gut feeling”. It doesn’t communicate verbally like the mind does. Our reality is therefore much more conducive to a “mind-based” system of manifestation.

But that can all change in a heartbeat.

A sequence of painful, mind-led events brought me to where I finally connected with my glorious heart center and allowed it to command my experience. I had always lived with a strong mind and it manifested some great events in my life.

But it also manifested some pretty painful ones, too. I remember lying in the dark one night and thinking:

“There’s got to be a better way.”

And there was. I instinctively began to meditate, without knowing exactly why I was taking up the practice at that particular time. In the beginning, my mind protested. Back then, I wasn’t the type of person that would just “waste” time on “useless” things like sitting quietly with my eyes shut.

There was just too much to do. Yet miraculously, there I sat every day. At first, I could only manage three or four minutes at a time. But as the days progressed, I felt a radical shift in me.

My mind was quieting down and instead of all the incessant chatter, I was now feeling love invade my chest.

“What is this?” I thought.

It was my heart speaking. From then on, I never again allowed my mind back into the role of commander-in-chief. That job is now solely performed by my heart.

Many people have asked in my workshops and classes how they too can connect to their beautiful hearts.

Here’s how.

1) Quiet your mind.

Whether it’s through meditation, yoga, jogging on the beach, or walking in the forest, seeking bliss helps decrease the endless voices in our heads. For me, the miracle was meditation but for you, it can be something totally different.

2) Tune into your heart center.

As the mind chatter decreases, there will be a wonderful silence and space inside you. In that space, you will start to feel your chest. You’ll literally feel love, compassion, and kindness…in your chest.

Become accustomed to the language of your heart and listen to it. Sometimes, I use visualizations and picture my heart chakra (the energy center located right above the breast area) shooting out the color green.

Other times, I become aware of what I feel when I look at someone I love or at a beautiful sight like a sunset. It feels like my chest is exploding with love.

3) Use the power of your consciousness to stay alert to synchronicities.

This is a big one. Synchronicities are the results of your electromagnetic fields being thrown out ahead of you. They’re like the fish caught in the fisherman’s net.

When you remain alert at all times—that is, when you live in the present moment and outside of your mind dramas—you’re more likely to see these synchronicities.

4) Act on synchronicities.

This is where the mind comes in. I still have a powerful mind, thankfully so. But it just knows its place now. I use my mind as a tool that helps me manifest what my heart desires.

Do you see the difference?

The heart commands and the mind follows. This is where all your creative juices should be used. When your heart brings you experiences and synchronicities, your mind helps build upon those initial desires.

When you allow your heart to command your experiences in life, nothing will ever be the same. Once you learn the language of the heart, you’ll never again ignore it.

And pretty soon you’ll arrive at your life’s purpose. Because it turns out, only your heart knows what that is.

    Thanks Christina for all the wonderful information. I had a huge tower moment 9 years ago that ultimately changed my life. I had another about 2 years ago that set me on the path I believe I was meant to be on. I am starting my own coaching business geared toward forgiveness and I came across your YouTube videos. It has been a pleasure listening to you. I shared this post on my FaceBook page. Your videos/posts have helped me understand even my own journey more clearly, things I knew but didn’t really have the right words for came to me because of you. Thank you. Keep it up!!!

    • I’m so happy to hear my videos have helped Krystine! Sending you lots of great vibes for your new coaching biz! May you be blessed in this new venture! 🙂

  • Thank you for your work. I recently came across your website quite “synchronistically,” I appreciate the messages that you give and the bluntness with which you deliver them.

    I am a therapist (LCPC) who had a spiritual awakening last year. I used to be ruled by my brain, but the circumstances of my awakening hit my heart so overwhelmingly that I was forced to sit in the feelings. I started getting “downloads” from the universe and began following the guidance I was receiving. I am now a firm believer in using the brain to follow the heart guidance. Since my awakening, I’ve been on an incredible journey which has taken me to now working alongside a spiritual coach to bring the message of love and compassion to the world.

    Light and love back to you.


    • I love this Lisa. Thanks so much for sharing a bit of your journey. Exactly…the brain should be used to follow heart guidance. 🙂

  • My mood changes a lot these days. At times, I suddenly feel so much emotion in the heart without knowing why. Yesterday, it came when I was having dinner with my kids. We were talking happily when suddenly a wave of sadness occupied me. I couldn’t continue to eat, felt deeply sad and desperate. I felt my heart was crying and it wanted to reach out to something. I quit the meal, got into bed and laid there for the evening. I have experienced this before, but they were not so heavy. And I had my heart checked up, it was working well and I don’t have a heart problem. For a few recent months, it’s been coming so often and interrupting me. The emotion is becoming a lot heavier that sometimes it burns my head, I feel I can’t contain it in my body. While it was just a little anxiety before and I usually could overcome it quickly, it has become painful these days and I am totally lost in it. Still I don’t know what my heart wants and what it is trying to do.

      We’re sending you so much love on your journey. All will be well. <3

    • Have you considered that you may have developed stronger empathy and it was another in your energy field feeling such a heavy sorrow?
      It can be very confusing when it comes later in your life not that it isn’t to those who developed it early, but being an em-path could be the reason and if so well done you, and I hope you learn to harness it quickly without much suffering to feel the blessing of this depth for love some could not even imagine experiencing, xxx

  • You have a beautiful heart and I want to thank you for providing all these materials to the world for free. It amazes me how you have given to the world. I thank you from deep in my soul. This and many other videos such as empaths have helped me learn and grow. I am at the beginning of may journey and feel so lost. Like a pinball lighting up every which way. You are giving me some direction and I really am inspired by your giving spirit and your light.

  • I can’t say it’s easy for me to feel what my heart is telling me. I even asked about it at a recent gathering at my spiritual community. We did a heart meditation which seemed to move most in the group, but once again I felt nothing. I feel like I have felt my heart energy before while listening to the a short meditation on youtube by the Chocolate Shaman Keith Wilson. I was listening to that a couple times daily, but then I had a nervous meltdown and haven’t totally recovered from it yet. That was about 6 weeks ago. I feel like I’m coming out of the darkest part of my spiritual awakening, but still feel aimless and empty which makes it a challenge to feel energized and alive.

  • Hi Christina,
    I truly love all your posts, they are a refresher for me. As I have spent a lot of time working to be the best I am capable of being. I do have some issues with getting really into my meditation. Mainly because I’m asleep in a few minutes and then my efforts have come up with just a subconscious mind screaming at me to find a way to stay awake for the things I’m trying to accomplish such as getting in touch with my spirit guides and getting to know them as much as I know my spirit animals. And I’m not really trying to manifest a lot of things just want to ascend properly so I can help me and anyone else that wants my help.
    So my solution is that I bought a card deck called “Sacred Destiny Oracle “, as I’m talented with divination of all varieties. Anyway this deck will discover the landscape of t soul. I am reading these cards for a period of weeks and journaling them, to see what my soul has to say via these cards.
    So wish me luck and hoping I’m going to get better with my meditation.
    Thanks for listening to me ramble.
    Blessed Be,

  • Thank you so much for all the information you share with us. You have helped me so much on my path!

  • Thank you Christina for your devotion and compassion that has been put forth into into your website and videos. I am truly grateful, and I am going work on opening my heart and working on my spiritual awakening with all of these wonderful tools and resources you have nicely put together. Its been a few years now, that I have participated with metaphorical classes and felt so distant from the class as they spoke of their communications with spirit guides, angels and love ones. Some of the classes, we were instructed to imagine different scenarios, where eventually we would receive a message from a spirit. Its not happening, I pray and meditate with an intention to receive spirit, and I have been working on my spirituality for so long, with very little communication. I feel spirit all around me, I speak to them, but my ability to receive is not there. My angels took me to this site today, Im sure of it. God Bless You, and thank you.
