Opening our heart links us to our true being. When we open our hearts, light flows through us as pure love, allowing us to receive and transmit energy that is divinely sourced. With an open heart, we can channel spiritual information, bypassing the incessant chatter of the brain and experience new possibilities. We can tap into this energy to create inspired choices in our lives.
In this state of open-heartedness, we feel relaxed and compassionate toward everyone and everything around us and experience a state of well-being. When our hearts are open, we may feel like a rose opening with waves of warm energy vibrating within the center of our chest and then emanating outward in all directions. With this energetic expansion comes a sense of peace, tranquility and a spiritual attunement with the universe.
Practice opening and expanding your heart by touching the center of your chest and experiencing the ebb and flow of your breathing. Each time you inhale take in life force energy as oxygen and light force energy as love. Each time you exhale, release negative thoughts, emotions and any discomfort with acceptance and non-judgment. The deeper you breathe, the deeper you move into the core of your being. Focus on the flow of energy emanating from your heart and pay attention to the voice of spirit, your higher self, speaking through your heart. Notice what you feel, sense and hear.
As you go about your day, practice opening your heart and saying to yourself, “I open my heart to myself and those around me.” Such a simple affirmation makes it easier to love yourself and those in your life with genuine, heartfelt affection.
