How to get heart wisdom?

Hi all,

I have been finding myself lacking in an area where everyone around me seems to be excelling. I don't know the official term for it, I just call it heart wisdom. Now I know wisdom is wisdom, but it seems like I have a ton of head wisdom and no heart wisdom. If someone presents a problem to me, I present a solution. If someone asks me a question, I use the easiest path to the correct answer. I feel like my prayers are these stale things, unnatural in form, too structured and rigid, and theirs just flow naturally out of them and are poetry and pleasing and just so much deeper than my own thoughts or words. It's like they are the real deal and I'm a robot, panicking before my prayers, totally dry in my responses, just completely factual.

Is there a book they've all read or something? Why does it seem so much more organic for everyone else? I know I don't look or sound organic when I'm doing these things. I don't speak in beautiful poetic thoughts.

So I'm not looking for a "you do you" thing, I'm genuinely wondering if any of you have felt like this in certain settings, or for certain seasons, and how you grew out of this stage? I have deep empathy/sympathy, but my response to that is totally robotic and feels just like regurgitation. I'm not satisfied with my level of word choice or ability to describe myself or God, it is elementary at best.
