Heart Connected Community

- Dr. Jordan Paul


Intro(Those joining from Anthus can scroll to CONTINUATION)

The heart represents a powerful, albeit usually unfulfilled, yearning for love and connection. Gaining a stronger link to our hearts and thereby finding greater fulfillment and joy is the focus of the Heart Connected Community. The Community will provide greater awareness of:

  • How to live more in integrity with your authentic self.
  • The behavior and feelings that come both from your heart and when you are disconnected from your heart.
  • The beliefs and fears that disconnect you from your heart and limit your ability to more fully love others and yourself.
  • How to return to your heart whenever you lose that connection and clean up the problems that inevitably result.

As our on-line community is built, many universally shared questions will be addressed, such as:

  • When I get something that I thought would make me happy like more money, marriage, children, sex, or getting my way, why do I so often feel unfulfilled and like it isn’t enough?
  • Why do I sometimes feel isolated and lonely with my family or friends and how do I create more meaningful connections with others and myself?
  • Why do I often feel anxious and sometimes, like a fraud?
  • What is my true heart’s desire and how do I manifest it?

The Heart Connected Community process involves reading a weekly article of approximately 600 words and an optional one hour toll-free follow-up call facilitated by your guides for this journey Jordan Paul and Josie Kelly. Participants will remain anonymous thus providing a safe place to clarify and deepen the ideas presented in the article. The call will be recorded and archived for on-going participants as well as new community members.

The basis of our approach to this subject is explained in the short video introductions below and transcripts of the videos follow.

Transcript of Jordan’s video intro – A few years ago I began writing about applying what I’ve learned over the past fifty years of studying relationships to my own life. Through some very dark and trying times, the overarching knowledge that emerged came from seeing the heart as a metaphor for my authentic self. When heart-connected I am one with myself, everything around me, and to a power that is greater than myself. At those times my behavior is respectful and my life is flowing and fulfilling.

I believe that when heart-connected each of us is a wonderful and loving human being. Only when disconnected from our hearts do we become disrespectful of others, ourselves, and our environment. My personal work/joy is continuing to learn how to live connected to my heart more of the time.

The image for this Introduction is on the cover of my book Becoming Your Own Hero because it so magically represents that unique and special place that sets apart a connection to our hearts from all other moments. When I can stay in that consciousness in the face of difficulties, I am empowered and my own hero.

When my friends at Adelman Enterprises asked me to serve on their Board of Advisors and to contribute to the Anthus Channel, I knew that I would share only what is true for me. So, I hope you will utilize what feels right to you, question what does not feel right and reject what your heart does not need.

I also knew that offering a broader perspective than my own would best come from a woman. So I asked Josie Kelly, a person whose thinking I greatly value, to join me on this exciting adventure.

Transcript of Josie’s video intro – When Jordan asked me to co-host this series it was an immediate, “Yes.” Leading with my heart in everyday interactions is crucial to my emotional and spiritual evolution.

From both my inner-personal work, and the mindfulness I see my clients practicing, it becomes clear that once we understand our feelings, reactions and judgments we move into more openness and the spiritual realm evolves naturally.

Cultivating a mindful approach to observing our inner life, allows us to develop a kind, respectful and loving relationship with ourselves. The more we love ourselves, the more we are freed to open our hearts to others. The spiritual aspect in this process is the letting go of fear and surrendering to love.

I am thrilled and honored to be part of this journey.


The first series of posts are designed to be read in order. They are building blocks culminating in learning a new way for resolving the inevitable upsets that occur in every relationship. Learning how to deal with difficulties in ways that do not compromise your own integrity or the integrity of others results in increasing trust, long-term stability and closeness.

The first series serve as a framework for subsequent articles applying that foundation to specific behaviors, feelings and issues such as arguments, sexual intimacyemotional intimacy, spirituality, guilt, angerforgivenessgender identityjealousy, infidelity, broken agreements, parenting and much, much more.

At the end of each post will be simple but powerful ideas for integrating and utilizing your learning.

For Your Journey

  1. Think about times when you were heart-connected and heart-disconnected and write about the differences in your feelings and outcomes of those experiences. (Keeping a journal will be a useful tool for clarifying and deepening your learning.)
  2. Remember times when you have shared your heart with another person and write about how that changed your life and theirs.
  3. Take a few minutes to relax and listen to John Lennon’s song “Imagine.” As you allow the words and music to fill you, write what your heart is telling you about your desire for peace within yourself as well as in all the communities in your life, especially your home and workplace.
  4. Send in your questions about this post or about this series to, jordan@drjordanpaul.com.
  5. Call in for a live discussion at . If you are not able to join us for the live call you can hear the recording at any time by going to
