I would like to share a short yet powerful technique I use to journey back inward into my heart in an fast, easy, peaceful and profound way:
– Step 1 Touch your heart with your left hand
– Step 2 Breathing slowly deeply effortlessly
– Step 3 Chant OM (X3 – 11 – 21 – 54 – 108)
– Step 4 St. Francis Peace Prayer
– Step 5 Breathing slowly again few times
Father, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Mother,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Did you know that your physical heart has approximately 40.000 specialized cells (similar to brain cells) called sensory neurites? This is important info as it means that these cells learn, remember and think independently from the neurons in our physical brain. They communicate with us separately from the neurons in the brain with a different language. Sometimes, it is difficult to recognize this language because we are conditioned to stay in the mind and brain. Accessing the heart on a spiritual level means to access these sensory neurites on a physical level too. By connecting daily with the heart we move our awareness from mind to heart, from thoughts to feelings, from strict logic to intuition and from fear to love. By doing this everyday, we create a bridge between heart and mind too, because both the heart and mind are important spiritual and physical centers, by connecting with the heart and re-building the inner bridge to the mind, we harmonize mind and heart, we create a powerful energy path that deeply help us awaken to our Compassion, Love, Gratitude, Intuition and all the 12 higher qualities of the heart.
For example when our mind and heart are working in unison, we move through challenges quickly, we solve problems rapidly, we don’t get trapped in the drama, ego, doubt and fear. The truth is that our mind and heart already know this path, they are wired to be linked and worked together in balance and harmony. The challenge is to move beyond the condition or ideas that keep us stuck in the ego mind.
When we reconnect with the heart on a more profound way, we become Alchemists of the Heart, we create approximately 1300 biochemical reactions including (but not limited to) anti-ageing hormones, creating a strong and balanced immune system, and cardiovascular health just to name a few…
