Tending the Heart – Tools of Inner Power
Towards the One, the Perfection of Love, Harmony and Beauty, the Only Being, United with All the Illuminated Souls Who Form the Embodiment of the Master – the Spirit of Guidance
In this time of great change it is helpful when we have some tools – tools of inner power – that can help in our inner transformation, and also help in the outer transformation of our world.
Here is a practice of the Heart. When done regularly, and especially when you do this practice with a clear intention to serve the need of today, both within you and in the wider world, this practice can have a great effect.
First be aware of that which is the source of life, of your life, and also the ultimate source of everything that comes as a blessing into the world. Let your attention rest on this Source of All for 1-5 minutes. You could also let your self be touched by this Source in a way that benefits you.
Now turn you attention to your heart:
Put you attention on the physical heart. You could put your hands there if it is helpful. Be aware of the direction deep within you toward vitality and healthfulness of your heart. With your attention on the Source of All, imagine yourself as an empty cup or as a conduit, and imagine, feel, or let your heart receive what it needs. Do this for up to 5 minutes (More is not better. Stop when it is time.) Think to yourself/Know that somehow you have just added to the vitality and healthfulness of your physical heart.
Put your attention on the feeling aspect of your heart. Be aware of the direction deep within you, toward strength, clear boundaries, infinite love and compassion, and so much more. With your attention on the Source of All, imagine yourself as an empty cup or as a conduit, and imagine, feel, or let your feeling heart receive what it needs, no matter how subtle, from the Source of All. Do this for up to 5 minutes (More is not better. Stop when it is time.) Think to yourself/Know that somehow you have just incorporated more of the strong, clear, loving and compassionate nature of the awakened heart.
Put your attention on the boundless dimension of the heart. Let your self be with the boundless heart within you, and perhaps, rest in the boundless aspect of the heart. Notice, or touch, or experience that area of your heart which is part of the Source of All. Rest in your experience. Do this for up to 5 minutes (More is not better. Stop when it is time.) Know that somehow you have just integrated more of the boundless aspect of the heart in to your life.
When these three steps are easy for you to do, then do the same three steps for the heart of our beautiful world.
May your heart and your life be blessed. May you be a blessing to the world.
