‘Dropping in’ to heart

Yesterday I came across a blog post called Need Peace? ‘Drop In’ To your Heart by Cathy Cassani Adams. She talks about moving into our hearts, how doing it can separate you from your thoughts momentarily, how it’s about feeling (versus thinking), how doing it is a practice, and how you can find your heart in stillness.

The piece really resonated for me. Poetry was my way of ‘dropping in’ to my heart throughout my diagnosis,treatment, and recovery. I was able to get out of my head, that place where I uncovered fear, worry, doubt, and I was able to move into my heart, where I opened to hope, love, and possibility. Even now writing helps me connect with that peaceful place inside. Yoga helps me do that, too.

How do you ‘drop in’ to heart?


About Vicki Flaherty

I feel most alive when I am creating, whether through my writing and poetry, gardening and photography, or simply living my life each day. Running and yoga enrich my being. Travel opens me to new possibilities and greater awareness. I am happiest when I’m with my husband Jim. I share my gratitude for all the gifts in my life on my This Abundantly Delicious Life blog. I find a special joy in helping people succeed. I’ve done something valuable when I’ve helped a colleague or friend see their brilliance and express their full potential. I have awesome opportunities to do this as an industrial/organizational psychologist through leadership, mentoring, coaching, career and other talent programs. I try to encourage Leading with Intention at my blog of this name. As a breast cancer survivor, I found comfort and hope in writing. Poetry flowed through me like a river of healing during my diagnosis and treatment, which I share on my Mostly My Heart Sings blog, that I might offer encouragement and a place of grace and heart for those seeking comfort and hope along their journey.
