Trust Your Heart – Using the Power of The Heart Energy Field

For centuries, we have realized that there exists a little voice inside of our heads, or an innate intuition, that speaks to us with regards to our external environments.  We have all heard the terms  “listen to your heart”, or “go with your gut instincts” when making certain choices in life, yet many of us chose to ignore these instincts and feelings.  Science has recently shown that we should, in fact, pay closer attention to what our hearts are telling us.  We actually have a biological energy field, stemming from our hearts, that “senses” our environment and provides us...
