Your heart is the gateway to Source. Your heart has its own intelligence, intuition and wisdom. Connecting with the heart is a part of almost every religion and spiritual practice. With an open heart we can be transformed into love itself. There are simple tools to awaken this in each of us.
"Your heart is the size of an ocean. Go and find yourself in its hidden depths." -Rumi
Quick exercise: Take two minutes and try the following heart focussed breathing exercise to connect with your heart.
Breath into your heart or chest area, imagine the breath is flowing deeper and slower than usual. Feel your attention center on your heart. Activate a positive feeling of appreciation, love, gratitude or care. Or simply imagine you are activating these emotions, try to remember a time, a place or a pet that helps you connect with this feeling. Continue to breath.
You can extend this to radiating the bright light in your heart out to others or simply place your hand over your heart and let it be a mirror radiating the love back to yourself.
"Perhaps this is the time when we either fulfill our original mission of self-reflective love, or we exploit violence to the point of breaking . Ka mea nāna i hana has taught us that self-reflective love is the most powerful force to have ever been conceived, and an energy which changed the dynamics of consciousness forever." - Mu Website
