What Does It Mean To "See Through Your Heart" and Why Is It Important To Practice Doing So Everyday?

I have been using this statement a lot lately, especially with my kids.  "See through your heart."  Thanks to Summer McStravik (http://www.flowdreaming.com/) for inspiring the analogy I am going to use to explain this idea:

God gave us the ability to instantly know to remove our hand if we touch a hot plate. It is wired in us. That same gift was given to us by how we feel when we experience something undesirable.  If it doesn't feel good what do we do to feel better?  It is my opinion that there is always an opportunity to find what feels good if you choose to look for it.

My son came home this week telling me about a little boy in school and his not-so-positive behavior toward another little boy.  I explained that talking about this boy's actions was like "highlighting" the little boy's negative behavior and therefore adding energy to what this boy said and therefore unintentionally attracting this kind of undesired behavior into my son's own experience, I asked him to try and see it through his heart.*

My son and I began a conversation about the different ways we could feel compassion for the boys.  I explained that sometimes the things we see as "bad" could actually be good for us.  You see, if things were always good how would we be pushed to learn and grow?  It is the "icky" feeling that warns us and wakes us up. We "highlighted" the good that comes from positive words and actions, therefore, attracting more of that kind of energy and experience into his life. We discussed how good he feels when he lifts others up.  We discussed how it would feel to be on the receiving end of his positive words and actions.  We both felt really good about what we concluded together.  We gave thanks to God for the experience presented to my son and for what we learned from it.

"We can increase the frequency of guiding coincidences by uplifting every person that comes into our lives.  Care must be taken not to lose our inner connection in romantic relationships.  Uplifting others is especially effective in groups where each member can feel energy of all the others.  With children it is extremely important for their early security and growth.  By seeing the beauty in every face, we lift others into their wisest self, and increase the chances of hearing a synchronistic message." 
 --The Celestine Prophecy: Insight Number 8, James Redfield

The Law of Attraction is Constant
By definition the Law of Attraction means like attracts like.  It doesn't discriminate and decide what is best for us.  It gives us exactly what we are "putting out there." The unintentional thinking and talking we do everyday when we are frustrated, sad, worried, angry, annoyed or stressed has everything to do with attracting more of what we DO NOT like into our life experience.  We all have a tendency do this.  One conversation doesn't change the world or my son.  Daily practice is a must.

There is great pleasure to discover behind daily purposeful, loving and positive thinking. We have the power to direct the Flow of Energy we desire.

*NOTE:  If bullying was a concern, be assured, I would take proper measures.  My purpose is to write about this experience with the perspective of light and love and switching from knee-jerk reactions to "seeing through your heart."
