Dr. David Daniels teaches us that "the ability to recognize and learn to value from which center you yourself is driving from is a wonderful first step toward self-awareness.
And secondly, to recognize, value, and then integrate all three centers of intelligence as “equally competent drivers” is crucial to all of us in attaining a fulfilling life and in cultivating relationships that flourish. It is vital to bring these into balance within ourselves first, and then within our relationships with others".
💖 Enneagram Types 2, 3, 4 💖
"If I am leading with the Heart Center, I tend to perceive the world through the filter of emotional intelligence,. I am attuned to the mood and the feeling state of others, sometimes in order to meet my own need for acceptance, contact, affection, bonding and approval. More than the other types, I may depend on the recognition and admiration of others to help establish my self-esteem and create an identity that I perceive as lovable. This will assure me I can fulfill my need for love and bonding".
Every enneagram type relies on emotional intelligence to experience and develop the higher qualities of the Heart Center, which includes empathy, understanding, loving-kindness, and compassion.
Dr. Daniels shows us these keywords for Heart Center types: Love, connection, affection, bonding, image, feeling, and approval. When we don't experience these, we react with distress/panic, along with variations of distress such as sadness, longing, and shame.
"While all three of the centers are essential to relationships, it's the Heart Center that tells us about our bonds. It's our connection to other that is most central to our experience of relationships. Understanding the neurobiology of care and bonding further validates the vital importance of our connections, of love." - Dr. David Daniels
