Heart Chakra Love Meditation

tumblr_nhspt64s3d1r83rx9o1_500

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.

Consciously Working With The Chakras

5070424_orig

So let me introduce the practice of entering your chakras every morning, with the intention of working consciously with your spirit. Drop your intention to your first chakra, to the base of your body, to the root of your spine. Put your attention there. This is your connection to Mother Earth. Feel yourself connected to that earth energy. Picture yourself sitting on wet earth. Picture yourself smelling that fragrance of newly cut grass. Feel yourself embraced by the soft wind of early morning. Feel sun on you. Feel sound around you. There is only you and the Earth now. You and Gaia.

This is your connection to your own life, to who you are, to the experience of being alive. This part of your body, your first chakra, contains the truth that all is one. You know that. As you radiate in this part of your body, you can feel that truth. You can feel yourself connected to every part of life. The fragrance of the Earth, the aquatic systems, the air, nature, life, your family, your friends, the planet. all of life is connected to you in this moment. All of life.

As you prepare for your day, consciously walk into these thoughts.

Allow that truth that all is one to penetrate through your body and feel that truth and its force moving down your legs. Feel that. Your first chakra is connected to your legs. Feel that power that when you walk on this Earth, you are walking in that truth. No matter where you walk you’re going to be connected to that electrical guidance that met you the day that you were born.

You have a circuit and that circuit connects you to every form of magnetic life on this planet.

Take a moment and put your attention there and think about your day. Do you feel unsafe or insecure on this day in your life? Is there something that scares you about this day in your life? Feel your fears, pull them into your consciousness, because you’re doing to need to deal with them today.

What strengths can you feel from this part of your body? Remind yourself again: all is one. This is your area of physical strength, this is the part of your body that pulls from that deep sense you have of trusting in your own strength to stand tall. To handle whatever weight is put on your shoulders.

You’ve got tremendous strength; feel that. It emanates from this part of your body; sense that. Make this power strong; feel it. Continue reading
