The heart is one of the most powerful parts of the body. Most would obviously associate it with keeping the blood circulating in the body. After all, when the heart stops working, so does our body. People also associate the heart with our feelings, especially that of love. In some respects, you can relate the heart with manifesting desires because our feelings help with rapid manifestation. However, I would say that manifestation of our goals and desires is most often connected with thoughts that come from the mind, not the heart. However, I present a question to you. Are heart and mind actually connected in some way?
I read a very interesting article the other day that shows a connection between heart and mind. It is titled “Your Heart is Your Subconscious Mind.” I highly recommend checking it out. The main idea of the article is that the ideas of the heart, especially those used in the Bible, are referring to the subconscious mind. In essence, the heart and subconscious are one and the same. As I’ve mentioned on this site many times, the subconscious is the part of your mind that controls your beliefs. Your beliefs ultimately control your actions, which ultimately control your results. If you want to change your results, you need to change the beliefs you have in your subconscious.
Let’s discuss this further. In the article, the author says there are over 5,000 scriptures that reference the heart. He suggests substituting the word heart for subconscious mind. I tried this and found it very powerful. Here are some examples. Proverbs 23:7 says “as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Isn’t it true that as a man thinks in his subconscious mind so is he? Remember, that is where man’s deepest beliefs are, and those beliefs are ultimately who he becomes. If he believes he is or even can be successful, he will be. If he thinks he is poor or a loser, that’s how his life will turn out. Let’s try some more. One I’ve shared about lately is from Proverbs 4:23. It says to “guard your heart (subconscious mind) above all else, for it determines your life.” The idea I’ve presented several times already can’t get more clear than that. The quality of your subconscious mind determines the quality of your life. Make sure you guard your mind diligently, only allowing the thoughts that will enhance that quality you desire in your life.
You may have heard the verse “create in me a clean heart” from Psalm 51. David prayed this after committing a major sin. It would make sense that he is asking God to clean out of his subconscious mind all unclean thoughts, so he won’t act on them and sin again. Mark 11:23 is a powerful verse about faith… “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart (subconscious mind) but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.” In other words, if you believe something to be true in your subconscious mind, it will be true in manifested form in your life. One more I will reference is Proverbs 3:5… “Trust in the Lord with all your heart(subconscious mind); do not depend on your own understanding.” When the assurance of God’s presence, peace, and love are embedded in your mind and held as a firm belief, you live your life accordingly and experience great joy, love, and success as He “makes your paths straight” as noted in the next verse. There are plenty of other excellent verses you can make this substitution with. Here are 100 Bible verses about the heart.
Hopefully, you can see that this connection with the heart and subconscious mind makes total sense. How can you use this information to manifest your desires? Your main task is to make sure your heart (subconscious mind) is right. Guard it diligently. Only allow thoughts that will embed ideas of success, joy, positivity, peace, and whatever you are seeking in life to live deep in your subconscious. When thoughts and beliefs are held there, the corresponding manifestations are automatic, and often effortless. You do need to take action, but those actions are also automatic and natural, and you will barely feel like you are doing any work if your faith is strong enough. There are several ways you can plant positive and empowering thoughts in the garden of your subconscious mind. The ones I have used successfully are visualization, positive affirmations, and hypnosis. I will provide links to how you can use those methods below.

I was really challenged by the article I shared with you. Indeed, I believe you can make references to the heart synonymous with the subconscious mind. When you have a belief (whether it’s positive or negative) in your subconscious mind, it always manifests in your outer world. You have full control of what’s allowed to enter your heart. Let it be filled with thoughts of how great life would be if you had those things, and feel the corresponding emotions. I know you will see them in your life sooner than later. Enjoy the blessings 🙂
