Heart Meditation Practices
Heart meditation is a powerful and transformational way to connect with your authentic self and end the struggle, pain, and blockages that may be limiting you. Through simple practices which focus on breath and heart we can relax the body, calm the emotions, and come into harmony with ourselves.
Developing a conscious relationship with your heart is the beginning of a life long friendship.
Through heart meditation your heart begins to speak to you and remind you of what is really important. It can be about your physical health, your mental state, your emotional state and even your spiritual state. Your heart knows what it needs and wants and your job is to listen to it and give it your utmost attention. There is no better way that I know of to connect with your heart than through the practices we do in heart meditation, especially heart rhythm meditation.
Bring your awareness to your heart center and relax. This helps you shift into heart consciousness.
When you approach life from the heart, you feel more alive and in touch with your authentic self. You start to trust your mind less and your instincts more. You feel guided by an inner knowing which you can rely upon in all situations.
Finding your heartbeat brings attention to your heart. By concentrating on your physical heart you become aware of your emotional heart. By accessing your emotions you enter into your spiritual heart.
We’ve all been taught to rely on our minds and we have ignored our most powerful ally, our hearts.
Too much dependence on our minds is exhausting and drains our energy and personal power.
There is a contraction around your heart that needs to be loosened up. These meditation practices focus on heart and breath and will gently open your heart center and allow you to fill it with unconditional love and compassion for yourself and others.
This openness in your heart center affects your physical and your emotional body. As you continue to practice meditation and open up your heart center this will create an opening for personal spiritual growth.
