The Heart That Burns

The Heart can swell with ecstasy and dive to the depths of sorrow. It can be the seat of balance and peace.  It is  the intersection of perceptual life as well as the unseen.

All parts of the being intersect there...the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.  It is the underlying flow and rhythm of life on many levels.

As the blood flows through the chambers, life force travels through its own unique channels.

The conscious mind is focused on this physical and material plane, the ego, emotion and personality are connected strongly with the conscious mind.

The Deep Being within; which has been with us for all our life spans, becomes overshadowed by the facade of the conscious mind focus.

The Deep Being is the part of us that communicates with The Source of All...and has knowledge and wisdom that our conscious mind lacks.

It speaks to our conscious self through vibrational patterns...that are sometimes not discerned.

Thus the Heart translates this for us...often leading us down strange roads...for reasons are intellect cannot fathom.  Yet there is the resonance of correct action that is beyond understanding.

The Heart wants what it wants...and sometimes appears to be at odds with what "common sense" tells us is correct.

However, the Heart burns with a fervor to tell us the obscure turns and passages that will transport us to the State we were meant to be.

It will lead us to know ourselves.more deeply,  beyond the facades of emotion/personality and ego.

Send it With Your Heart

I have been focusing on my heart center more intensely than usual  for the last couple of weeks.  I know how important it is to keep this center open and flowing and I know how important the heart center is to my entire being on all levels.   I got that a while back.

But I have discovered that working more with my heart center also keeps me in "The Flow" no matter what kind of mind chatter is going on inside me, no matter what kind of annoying or stressful event is happening.   I have begun practicing almost constant mindfulness on my heart center.  Checking in frequently to make sure it is open.

I noticed that every once in a while when something comes up in the physical,  if any anxious feelings are triggered, my energy centers appear to collapse a bit.  The degree of the collapse is connected to the impact of the trigger and subsequent feelings that get stirred up.  I found I could process this discomfort and regain some inner composure quicker when I immediately open my heart center and begin processing from that point.

The discomfort begins moving, therefore, freeing up my other energy centers to circulate more effectively.  It's like opening a window in a stuffy house filled with  stale air.  It freshens the  spaces.   Circulating the life force begins to raise the vibrational level of the life force.

It doesn't necessarily fix the situation that triggered the anxious/stressed/fearful response/reaction.   But it does allow me to adapt, accept, cope and move along in a quicker and more efficient manner.  I use Reiki along with this and it is almost miraculous how fast I can regain my footing in almost any situation.  No matter how distressing.  Amazing!  It was right under my nose all along.

And so, the moral of this story is:  No matter what the situation, good bad, wonderful, terrible, frightening, joyful or sorrowful, Send it with Your Heart.
