Does It Make Your Heart Sing?

Does it make my heart sing, has been my guiding mantra for most of my life. It’s been that call to remember that what my heart wants is more important than what my head might say.

I’ve heard it said, that the journey is more important than the destination. It’s how we get to where we are going, every step we take along the way that’s critical, and can’t be rushed. 

We live on a challenging planet; truthfully life is not easy for sensitive people. Many of these individuals report feeling as if they don’t belong, that somehow, they are different. They might start off trying to fit in, but slowly fizzle out, the challenges overwhelming their senses, literally shutting them down.  It’s not hard to understand why they turn to substances and addictive behaviors for comfort, and to hide their panic, and anxiety.

When we live a life that is not in balance, not in harmony with our true natures, we need to hide from ourselves..

What if you could gain a glimpse into the reasons behind your struggles, the causes of your unending cycles of crisis and misfortune? Suppose there was a meaning and a purpose to your life, and that you had a very specific mission, that only you could do.

Along the way, as a therapist, intuitive and chiropractor, I have discovered that each of us does have something, a unique skill set, that is part of the gifts we have been given to do the work, the mission, that we have literally come here to do. 

This mission, this purpose, if known can be a driving and motivating force in your life. In fact, it can be the juice that keeps you going in a sense, for when you know inside yourself, there’s a reason you are here, you experience more confidence in everything you do.  When I had my chiropractic office, I gave monthly lectures for new patients, always encouraging them to step up, live their best life, and learn to leap over tall buildings in a single bound. Having a purpose is a raison d’etre, a cure for some of life’s challenging moments.

There is a way to know if your actions are taking you in the direction of using your best gifts, and living your purpose. If you have a question, and want to know what direction to take, ask yourself, “Does it make my heart sing?.”  I remember when my children were toddlers and I was interviewing pre-schools. The first school was recommended but when I walked into the facility, I felt a heavy thud in my chest. 

The next facility I toured was a Montessori school, and the environment felt light, delightful, and the children were happy. As I left I literally felt a loud beating in my chest and a song in my heart, singing with happiness for I had found a home for my children to be nurtured. Does it make my heart sing has been my guideline for many years.

For me, knowing I am here to heal and inspire millions of people has me leaping out of bed at 5 am daily, to write, to meditate, to center myself for my work ahead, so that everything I do is in alignment with what I sense is my work.

Maybe your specific life purpose is to learn to create solid foundations, stability, in all areas of your life, including your work, home, family, financial and spiritual world. Thus, you might have a very stable life, or conversely, the opposite might be true, with frequent moves, job changes, and financial fluctuations. You might spend your entire life seeking stability only to find it eludes you. Knowing this, you can make changes, adapt, find ways to bring in this stability, focus on your details and what brings the feeling of home.

In 2013, artist Joan Hangarter heard the call of the Earth Messengers, ‘Paint us and we will come.” An occasional painter since 2000, Dr. Hangarter had been a successful chiropractor, an author and founder of The Miracle Makers Club.  But in 2013, she dropped everything and began to paint transformative paintings of angels she calls Earth Messengers.

“The Earth Messengers are here to bring healing of the heart, and remind us, that we, too, are powerful beings with the potential to live a larger life. The process of painting these Earth Messengers begins with a vision, a dream, and through a meditative process, the paint brush literally moves itself, and the beings direct their presentation.”

Her paintings are imbued with positive transformational messages from etheric beings that Dr. Joan shares as she channels as an oracle, medium and a painter—earning her the affectionate moniker ‘Joan of Angels.’

 “The message of ‘Paint us and we will come,’ is part of a universal truth for all of us, with a larger theme of believe, and your truth, your life, will manifest.” Explore the Earth Messengers Gallery.

These messengers bring unconditional love, wisdom, guidance, and most of all healing for the world. These paintings are unique portals to experiencing the divine. Welcome home.
