I came to self and heart healing almost a decade ago. Like many, it was a time in my life where I felt as if my heart had broken into a million pieces. Not yet recognising that rock bottom would be the place where a new, better version of me and embodiment of love would be created.
Maybe as you read this now you are in the midst of your own heartbreak. Experiencing sadness, pain, loss, resentment or anger and feeling as if there is no hope for you where matters of the heart are concerned. Whereas, I won’t tell you how to think and feel, I can share with you some insight into heart and self healing. Doing so, with the intention to inspire you to take those tentative steps towards self and heart healing, just as I did 10 years ago.
HEART RESEARCH + THE ANCIENTS
The mind is given much kudos for being a driving force in supporting you to manifest your intentions into your life. With little regard given to the heart. In fact, being heart centred or focusing upon your heart is considered wishy-washy or irrelevant.
However, recent research has shown that the heart is effectively like the second brain. Holding within it much wisdom alongside the memories and feelings of yesteryear. Due to it’s strong electromagnetic field (5,000 times stronger than the brain), whatever you feel within your heart can be felt by other people several feet away.
It is this very idea of the heart being such a powerful organ of the body that has be echoed throughout time, namely by the Ancient Egyptians.
During funeral ceremonies the heart would be the only organ not removed because it was revered as being the throne of wisdom, where thoughts and emotions resided.
As for the brain. Well, that was the only organ that would be removed because it was considered to have no real significance.
So, what does this have to do with heart healing and feeling better after experiencing heartache or pain?
When you think about love where do you commonly feel the expansion of energy?
In your heart.
When you split with an ex or pine for an ex lover, where do you feel the tight and contracted energy?
In your heart.
So much of what is felt emanates from the heart. This is great when you feel good, happy, joyful and all loved up.
I mean think about the meaning that life takes on, all the synchronicity you experience and your ability to bounce back when the heart is expanded.
This is in contrast to the lack of clarity and victim thinking of “Why me?” Which is often followed up with that feeling of being stuck and unlucky in love.
From this simple explanation alone it becomes apparent that the energy emanating from your heart (based on your thoughts and emotions) has an impact on your energy field. Therefore an impact on what you invite into your energy and your life.
By clearing your heart of the energy of fear, lack, pain, anger, scarcity….. you release yourself from the burden of the past. In doing so, healing your heart and increasing the probability of aligning with your true soul-inspired intentions.
It is common that when heart healing is activated the connection between the Divinity and wisdom that lies within is amplified. A concept that has long since been echoed by mystics and spiritual teachers from the different world religions. Each one believing that the soul, the Divine or the Buddha-like self resides within the chambers of the heart.
From my own personal practice of self and heart healing I’ve noticed this to be true. Whilst also finding that my alignment increases when engaging my heart. In fact, on one occasion, I recall overriding the doubt of the mind by engaging from the heart and manifested a miracle healing in less than 24 hours.
HEART HEALING MEDITATION
This meditation has its origins in Tantra and is a powerful way to release heavy feelings from your heart.
A simple meditation that engages both the mind and the heart. It has been known to move people to tears (myself included) as the energies leave the body. Whilst you focus on replacing this heavy energy with unconditional love.
Closing your eyes. Get yourself into a calm and grounded state. Then place your fingertips in the middle of your chest, where your heart chakra is located. Connect to your heart chakra through your breath and intention. Visualise what your heart looks like behind the barriers that you have created around it. Make this image as bright and beautiful as you can. See your soul sitting amidst the beautiful setting of your heart. All the while breathing in loving energy and breathing out any feelings that represent your barriers to love.
This connection with your heart is available to you at any time and can serve you in many ways, including decision making, accessing wisdom and, of course, heart healing.
In Angelic Reiki life force energy from the Angels and Divine is received by you. Going straight to the areas of the body that require healing at this time. So, this might be a combination of heart healing and base chakra healing, for example. Either way, the healing is unique and personal to You, based on what you are ready to reveal and heal.
I’ve seen and personally experienced profound shifts from Angelic Reiki sessions. Especially as clients start to release that energy that has left them feeling heavy from within.
My own personal experience evoked memories from the past (and past lives), something that isn’t uncommon. However, rather than getting caught up and lost in the story of that memory, I found it brought understanding that had been missing. Thus, closure on a repetitive relationship and cycle, simply by observing, releasing and replacing with unconditional love.
Rose Quartz is famed for being the love crystal. The Crystal that you pop into your bra, adorn yourself with or add to a crystal elixir when you want to attract love into your life. However, it’s way more powerful than that.
Vibrating at the frequency of unconditional love working with Rose Quartz will reveal, one by one, anything within or without which is not in alignment with its vibration. Therefore, making it an excellent crystal to work with when you know within that you are ready to dissolve your barriers to love.
Thankfully, the energy of Rose Quartz is gentle and soothing. So, although what is revealed might be a hard pill to swallow the soothing energy of Rose Quartz can support and guide you to refuel yourself with unconditional love.
It also encourages compassion and forgiveness, for yourself and others.
