Day 20 – The Heart of the Heart

Day 20 Heart by Mary GowAlready Day 20 and 80 more to Valentine’s!

Week 37 since the Covid shut down has begun.

Hearts come in all sorts of shapes. Today’s is more elongated.

Originally a watercolor, I probably over-did the application of filters on this one.

There is a time to let a heart be a heart.

Stop trying and just let it be.

Day 11 – The Light Inside


Day 11 Heart by Mary Gow

Our hearts have an intelligence of their own, separate from our brains. I first heard this from a talk by Gregg Braden, a five time New York Times best-selling author, scientist, international educator and pioneer in the study of human potential.

Learning to trust your gut is the same as learning the language of your heart.

Braden talks about steps for tapping into your heart’s intelligence in an article, “Resilience from the Heart”:

1. Focus your heart;
2. Slow your breathing;
3. Feel a rejuvenating feeling
4. Ask your heart intelligence a question; and
5. Listen

What Feels Like This

Heart No. 4 by Mary Gow

“Heart No. 4” by Mary Gow

It’s Day 4 of my One Hundred Heart Project.

I began this project on November 6th because it’s 100 days to Valentine’s Day – the biggest Heart Day of the year!

So the countdown continues.

Heart No. 4 is bubbling up, full of enthusiastic energy. Remember feeling this way?

“Enthusiasm moves the world.”
-Arthur Balfour
