Your Heart’s Desire, Part 7, Paragraphs 8 & 9

Welcome Back! 

If you’ve ever had a dream stolen, and my guess is

since you’re here, you have,

then you are in the right place,

and on the journey to getting your dreams back.

How were your attempts at obeying the “little” laws

in last week’s edition of Your Heart’s Desire?

 This week nudges you closer

to the key to Your Heart’s Desire. 

In fact, the two paragraphs allude to both the problem

and the solution to finally being able

to hear the whisperings of God. 

Stick with it. 

The next several weeks are going to propel you forward

leaps and bounds

in terms of attaining Your Heart’s Desire

and reclaiming your dreams.


Paragraphs 8 and 9 by Emmet Fox

“A human soul may be thought of as an opening through which Infinite Energy is seeking a creative outlet. If that outlet be a clear, open channel, all is well.  If, on the other hand, it should become obstructed by any means, then the Infinite Energy, the Life Force, is frustrated, dammed back—and all sorts of local stresses are set up in that soul; and these we see as sickness, poverty, fear, anger, sin, and every kind of difficulty.

Now we are in a position to understand what the real art of living must be.  It must be to make this channel clear and to keep it clear; and if only we will do this, we shall find that health, prosperity, full self-expression—true happiness, in short—will then follow automatically.”

Commentary, Questions, and Exercises by Joseph Anthony

The cat’s out of the bag.  We need a clear channel.  That’s the keychain, if you will, but not the key.  How do we get a clear channel?  That’s the key.  And Emmet reveals that information soon.  For now, just sit with the idea that we are channels for God’s Life Force.  Let that idea, that image, that sensation, settle within you.  It is both humbling and honoring—the God of All Creation wants to flow through you.  In fact, one could say the Creator’s work is never fully complete because He cannot flow through all of the channels He seeks to.

But how can the Infinite have any limitations?  Why doesn’t It just force Itself through, like a river shattering a dam?  The answer is freedom.  We are all free to become clear channels or stay clogged ones.  The choice is ours.


1). How does it make you feel to know you are a channel for the Divine?

2). What sorts of things do you think block the flow?

3). What do you think Fox is going to tell us in terms of how to clear the channel?


1). Reflect on anything you feel is blocking the flow of God in you.  Consider giving up these blocks and asking for help or support to do so.

2). Reflect on the phrase, “the art of living.” How can you live more artfully this week?

That’s all for this week.  Consider it Your Heart’s Desire Lite.  Next week, we will move from the within to the without here at the Wonder Child Blog.  Join us then for Part 8, Paragraphs 10, 11, 12, and 13.
