While reading Wheels of Life by Anodea Judith, I came across a wonderful series of meditations. They read a little like a story, and some of them more like poetry, and they really give a wonderful in depth understanding of the various chakras and their deeper meanings. Each one builds on the one before, so they are best read in order, from Root to Crown.

Here is a list if you’d like to explore them:

  1. Root Chakra Journey Meditation
  2. Sacral Chakra Water Meditation
  3. A Fiery Third Chakra Meditation
  4. Heart Chakra Love Meditation
  5. Throat Chakra Sound Meditation
  6. Third Eye Light Meditation
  7. A Thoughtful Crown Chakra Meditation

Heart Chakra Love Meditation

From love were we made.

On Passion’s waves our spirit sparked

and down we came into our
mothers …
mater …
matter …

The pull of love calling us, deep into the Earth
As deep into the mother father pushed.
Deep into the womb, we crawled –

the warm dark womb
of earth and water.
The womb of love –
safe, dark, cradled, quiet.
We grew.

In the dark there was but one sound –
the sound of life, the sound of love, the sound of the heart.

Beating …
Beating …
Beating …
Beating …

Hear it now in your own heart.

Its rhythms pumping life and air and breath
through every part of you,
renewing you;

Bathing you in air, in space, in breath, in life.

Feel it now at the core of you, embrace it with your hands.
Feel it yearning, crying, loving, hoping, healing.
Feel it within you, old as you are,

beating since the days from deep in the womb,
feel how long it’s been there,

Always beating. Never stopping.
Always beating. Never stopping.
Always beating. Never stopping.
Always beating. Never stopping.
Do you love that heart?

Breathe in deeply, drawing in the air … as softness, depth and wisdom.

As you breathe, spirit comes within your heart and touches you …
moving you … changing you.

Deeply, you accept as thirstily you drink.
Be thankful for this vessel that receives.

Faster now on waves of flame,

we fling with joy up to the sky,
above the Earth, above the water,
beyond the fire, into the air.

We reach and spread our wings and fly, free to ride the winds.
But soon get tossed about and cry:

Where is the heart?
Where is the heart?
Where is my home?

We listen for the beat and fly, deep unto its sound.
We reach for ground, slowing down.
We still ourselves to listen deeper, quiet is the sound.

Gently we reach, for the heart is tender.
Softly we touch, for the heart is afraid.
We open our hands to the love inside, to unite, to touch, to heal.
Offer that love now. Ask for entry to your own heart.

Listen deep and hear inside, a silent sound.

Anahata,
Anahata,
Anahata,
Anahata.

Listen deep and breathe into the sound,
the breath, the winds of healing.

In … and out … in …
and out … in … and out …

Inhaling that which is new,
exhaling the old,
each breath renewing

Each breath a wind within you and around you,
gentle zephyr, storm of life, winds of change.

For what does your heart cry?
For what does it long?
In what does it find peace?

Release its hopes and dreams to fly upon the wings of change
and then return on wings of love, fulfilled beyond your dreams.

You are not alone. Your cries are echoed in
a thousand hearts the same.
If you listen, you can hear them:

beating
beating
beating
beating

Deep within each person find the heart.
Everywhere around you find the heart.
Deep within ourselves we find the heart.
Every time we touch, we touch the heart.

Within each one is love, awaiting sweet unfoldment.
Release that love upon the winds of breath, and reach beyond.
Touch the hearts inside the ones you love,
And listen to their breath that whistles

in … and out …
in … and out …

Like you, they laugh and cry and play,
Ceaseless rhythm through each day.
Feel the heart so like your own:
Hoping, healing, breathing, feeling.

Let there be no sound of striking,
Only that of love and liking.
Each unto the dance of love,
That joins the Earth to worlds above,
And joins ourselves unto each other,
Each one seen as sister, brother.

Within our hearts the seeds of peace
Lie, awaiting sweet release.
Upon the winds of change they fly
As deep within our hearts we cry:

Anahata,
Anahata,
Anahata,
Anahata.

The sound of love.

Heart Chakra Basics

You are considerate and sensitive to the needs of others, and empathetic to their pain. You are able to feel love for all beings around you, in an ever-widening circle from yourself and family, your pets, friends, neighbours, countrymen, fellow human beings and all fellow living beings. on Earth. Ultimately, you can see the Divine in all beings, and you realise the same Self in you is also the Self in them as well.

Surely a man needs a closed place wherein he may strike root and, like the seed, become. But also he needs the great Milky Way above him and the vast sea spaces, though neither stars nor ocean serve his daily needs. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery
