In this article, I’d like to introduce you to the Law of the Heart, unpack its secrets, and share a proven step-by-step process to awaken your dormant potential. This isn’t about wishful thinking; it’s about harnessing the love, wisdom, and power of your heart to co-create the life you are here to live. Your heart holds the key to a deeply fulfilling life.

Let’s begin…


When I first embarked on the path of  Heart Mastery, I encountered a profound concept that not only resonated with my inner self but also aligned with the ancient wisdom taught by many spiritual traditions. This concept is The Law of the Heart, a term I coined to encapsulate the idea that within each of us lies a treasure, a seed, or destiny waiting to be manifested. But it will only manifest once certain conditions are met.

Unveiling The Law of the Heart

The Law of the Heart states that…

“Within your heart, there is a treasure, or seed, containing the destiny you’re here to manifest. This treasure lies dormant within you, already accomplished; only awaiting expression in the physical realm by virtue of your perception of it, the choices you make, and the actions you take from a united state of heart and mind.”

Shall we unpack it?

Unpacking the Law of the Heart

“Within your heart, there is a treasure, or seed, containing the destiny you’re here to manifest.”

Imagine your heart as a sacred temple, holding a treasure or seed that encapsulates your true destiny. This treasure represents the unique gifts, talents, and passions that make you who you are. It is the essence of your purpose, waiting to be unlocked and shared with the world.

For example, let’s say you have always had a deep love for music. You feel a strong connection to singing and songwriting, and it brings you immense joy and fulfillment. This passion and talent for music is the treasure within your heart, pointing towards your destined path.

“This treasure lies dormant within you, already accomplished; only awaiting expression in the physical realm…”

The realization of your destiny is not an external achievement that you need to acquire. Instead, it already exists within you, awaiting expression. This means that you have everything you need to fulfill your purpose; it’s just a matter of activating and bringing it to life.

For instance, consider a person who has a natural gift for healing. They have an intuitive understanding of others’ emotional and physical well-being and are drawn to alternative healing modalities. This healing ability is already within them; it simply needs to be nurtured and developed to be expressed in the physical realm.

“By virtue of your perception of it, the choices you make, and the actions you take…”

The manifestation of your destiny depends on three key elements: perception, choices, and actions. Let’s explore each of these in more detail:

a. Perception: Your perception plays a vital role in unlocking your destiny. It involves recognizing and embracing the treasure within your heart, as well as having a positive outlook on your potential to manifest it. By shifting your perspective to one of abundance and possibility, you open yourself up to opportunities that align with your purpose.

For example, suppose you have a passion for environmental conservation. By perceiving yourself as an agent of change and seeing the treasure within your heart as a catalyst for positive environmental impact, you create a mindset that attracts opportunities to contribute to the preservation of our planet.

b. Choices: The choices you make in life shape your journey towards fulfilling your destiny. These choices should be made consciously, with a deep understanding of your core values, passions, and the greater purpose you wish to serve. By aligning your choices with your heart’s calling, you create a path that leads you closer to your true destiny.

Consider someone who has a strong desire to empower others through education. They may choose to pursue a career as a teacher, develop educational programs, or volunteer in underserved communities. Each choice made with the intention of uplifting and educating others aligns them with their destined path.

c. Actions: Taking inspired action serves as the bridge that connects your inner treasure, or your innate abilities and aspirations, and their tangible expression in the physical realm. This is the crucial step where ideas and dreams begin to take form in the real world. Taking inspired action means not just going through the motions but acting with purpose and intention, driven by the vision you hold for your life.

For instance, if your heart’s treasure is entrepreneurship, taking actions such as creating a business plan, networking with like-minded individuals, and launching your venture are steps that move you closer to realizing your destiny as a successful entrepreneur.

“From a united state of heart and mind.”

The actions and decisions we make should ideally come from a state of complete unity and harmony between our heart and mind. This is a state where our deepest desires, our most sincere intentions, and our core beliefs are perfectly aligned with one another.

This concept is not just a philosophical idea but has been studied and defined scientifically by the Institute of HeartMath, who refers to this state as ‘Coherence’. The Institute of HeartMath has conducted extensive research into this concept, providing a scientific basis for the idea that when our heart and mind work together in harmony, we are capable of extraordinary things.

Activating the Law of the Heart

Now that we have unpacked the Law of the Heart, let’s explore a proven step-by-step process that uses seven key questions to help you activate this law in your life:

1. Perceive Your Treasure

Question 1: What truly makes your heart sing?

Take a moment to reflect on activities, experiences, or aspects of your life that ignite a deep sense of joy and fulfillment. Your treasure lies in the resonance of these moments. Whether it’s a hobby, a skill, or a particular life theme, identify the essence that connects these joyous experiences.

Example: If writing brings you immense joy, your treasure might involve expressing yourself through words, perhaps even pursuing a career as a writer.

Question 2: What core values are non-negotiable for you?

Consider the values that are fundamental to your sense of self. These are the guiding principles that define your character. Aligning with these values is key to unlocking the dormant treasure within.

Example: If freedom, honesty, and authenticity are crucial to you, your treasure may involve living a life where you express your true self freely and authentically.

2. Make Powerful Choices

Question 3: Are your current choices aligned with your inner treasure?

Evaluate your daily choices and actions in light of the treasure you’ve identified. Assess whether they resonate with the essence you’ve discovered. If there are discrepancies, consider adjustments that bring your choices into alignment with your heart’s calling.

Example: If your treasure involves creativity, ensure that your daily choices include time for creative pursuits, even in small, manageable doses.

Question 4: What is one powerful choice you can make today?

Identify a specific decision you can make right now that aligns with your heart’s treasure. It could be as simple as committing to a new habit or taking a bold step toward a long-term vision or goal.

Example: If your treasure involves community engagement, a powerful choice could be volunteering for a cause that resonates with your values.

3. Take Inspired Action

Question 5: What action steps can you take to manifest your treasure?

Break down your treasure into actionable steps. These steps should be specific, measurable, and achievable. Consider both short-term and long-term actions that will bring your heart’s vision into reality.

Example: If your treasure involves becoming a skilled photographer, action steps may include taking a photography course, practicing regularly, and building a portfolio.

Question 6: How can you infuse passion into your daily actions?

Inspired action is fueled by passion, and passion emanates directly from your heart. Explore ways to infuse enthusiasm and excitement into your daily routine. This could involve incorporating elements of your treasure into various aspects of your life.

Example: If your treasure involves a love for nature, infuse passion by spending more time outdoors, incorporating nature-inspired elements into your workspace, or planning weekend getaways to scenic locations.

4. Unify Your Heart and Mind

Question 7: How can you create coherence between your heart and mind?

Consider practices that promote harmony between your heart’s desires and your mental processes. These might include heart-centered meditation, HeartMath’s Quick Coherence practice, visualization techniques, or journaling to explore and reconcile any conflicting thoughts or beliefs.

Example: If fear and self-doubt arise, take a few moments to bring your attention to your heart. Practicing Heart Coherence for ten minutes can help calm your nervous system, creating more harmonious mental and emotional states aligned with your heart’s vision.

By answering these questions and engaging in the examples provided, you’ll embark on a personalized journey to activate the Law of the Heart in your life. The results will be deeply transformative!

Final Thoughts

The Law of the Heart is a powerful concept that, when fully embodied, will transform your life. It reminds you that your destiny is already within you. Your job is to stop searching for this destiny outside of yourself and instead begin to look for it within you, in the confines of your heart. As Carl Jung profoundly stated, “Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”

Activating the Law of the Heart in your life will allow your true potential to shine. By aligning your perception, making conscious choices, and taking inspired action, you will embark on a transformative journey towards manifesting your unique destiny.

Cherish the treasure within your heart, nurture the seed inside, and watch your life transform!
