In the secret Daoist teachings – one of the oldest philosophies and principles that explain everything in the universe – it is believed that in the heart area there’s a key energy and spiritual center called Ling Gong. “Ling” means soul. “Gong” means temple. So, the Ling Gong is the soul temple in your body. This center is responsible for soul communication, healing, emotions such as love, forgiveness, and compassion; life transformation, karma, and soul enlightenment.
According to these sacred teachings, when a human being is born, the Akashic Records sends a special soul to the newborn’s Ling Gong. This special soul is named the Tian Ming: “Tian” means Heaven. “Ming” means orders.
The Tian Ming is like a seed containing Heaven’s order, that if you water and nurture will guide you your entire life towards the Life you are here to live. You can also think of Heaven’s orders as your life’s purpose, “God’s Will” for your life, destiny, or simply “The Path” you’re here to follow.
A Daoist Secret that Changed My Life
When you listen to your heart, you are in essence following the guidance of Heaven, and therefore your life could be very smooth, happy, and successful. Creating a life following this guidance will result in creating a life you love, that touches and inspires others, and brings you great prosperity and joy.
But if you ignore the messages of your heart or go against its guidance, your life could be a big mess. This could result in disease, addictions, blockages, and all kinds of situations that result when you’re living out of alignment with Heaven’s orders for your life.
Follow your Heart and Flourish
Go against your Heart and face big obstacles
Up until now, very few humans have known this secret. But these days, more and more people like you and me are learning how to connect to, listen, and follow their hearts. Learning this secret completely changed my life, and took me down a path that I never even imagined possible as a Heart Intelligence Coach.
Living from the Heart is not for everybody. It takes balls, courage, and determination. It means leaving the comfortable and predictable future others have created for you, and entering into your own ‘Hero’s Journey’ towards a life that is 100% in alignment with what your heart truly desires and believe is possible. It takes saying what you’re most afraid of saying, facing what you’re most afraid of facing, doing what you’re most afraid of doing, and being who you’re most scared to be. This is probably what inspired Ralph Waldo Emerson to write,
God will not have his work made manifest by cowards”
The Path of the Heart, more than a path to personal development, is about becoming more fully you. It’s about allowing the seed within your own heart to grow and flourish into the magnificent version of you that you can possibly be!
And this, I believe, is the best gift you can give yourself, others, and this world.
