This week did you skip a couple of days in your practice?
If so (and here is the link to review them so far), you discovered:
1) it is easier when you practice every day and
2) how easy it is when you practice!
Who would have thought that we have “spiritual muscle” that develops just like your muscles develop when you play tennis or practice the piano? Your muscles retain memory. So, obviously, does your spirit!
Or, did you, on the other hand, race ahead to take a peek at the heart chakra? If so, then you probably noticed the second foundational element of existence that we will talk about today, which is Light.
All of existence is made of Light. Light and Expansion go hand in hand. You see and experience these foundational elements every time you meditate. You sense them at each chakra. Now that you know them with a name, it is easy to see them in your experience.
Today in our exercise we travel up the spine from the third chakra at the navel to the level of the heart, where we see the beautiful emerald green of the heart chakra.
By now you are familiar with how we explore the chakras. You clear your energy and move into your meditational space, where you become aware you are in a state of peace and tranquility. You become conscious of the present moment and the Abiding Presence. You become conscious that you reside in this Abiding Presence and this Presence resides in you. You are One.
Then we work individually with each chakra, one at a time. We focus and hold our attention on the center. We notice and observe our experience. We allow our experience. We don’t try to create something. We just observe our experience.
Notice the Light and how it radiates in each chakra. Notice how each chakra is luminous.
As we use our intention and allow the flow of energy to increase, notice you feel uplifted, literally raised up.
As we move into the energy of the heart chakra, we immediately feel that expanded state and immediately sense the light. We feel that magnetic quality of the emerald green heart center drawing us to this energy. Notice there is a feeling state with this chakra.
It is the center known for the feeling of love. I also find other words that describe this center. Peace radiates out from this center. Goodwill travels on the waves of expansion. There is a heart wisdom and understanding that opens in this center.
As we allow the flow of energy to increase in this center, we feel this opening wide sensation. We feel this embracing quality as our hearts open, as if we could embrace the entire world. Indeed, that loving quality is right there in the center of our being, right in the center of our heart.
Do join us on the Higher Energies course as we continue with the upper spiritual chakras in our meditations. You will find yourself more and more in alignment with less and less resistance. You will find more and more individual experience coming to you, as you gain ability to perceive more.
Right brain learning, which is what you have been doing with the chakra meditations, is experiential knowledge. Left brain learning is that logical, think-it-through, figure it all out, way of understanding. We are used to that way of learning and the course will have all of that included, also. Owen has an amazing ability to make the complex easy to understand, so I hope you join us!
P.S. If you have animals in the house, don’t be surprised if they all come and pile on top of you in your meditation as you start including the heart chakra!
