Awakening Experience #1- Entering the Infinite Heartspace

Entering the Infinite Heartspace

Create a personal intention for what you want to experience during this time. Find a place where you know you won’t be interrupted for 15 to 30 minutes. This can be indoors or outdoors. Make sure you are comfortable and have some water to sip.

Now, take a few sips of your water. Close your eyes. Begin to take some clearing and relaxing breaths. Remember that you have no right or wrong way to do this. Breathe in through your nose all that’s new and fresh and breathe out through your mouth all that is stale and toxic including tension and stress. Continue to breathe like this until you feel your heartbeat calming and slowing down. Feel your shoulders relaxing and dropping because you are releasing tension and stress.

Awakening Infinite HeartSpace

Imagine your favorite thing to do or favorite place to be. What brings you the most joy? For example, if you love being by the water, imagine your favorite water place in the middle of your chest. Is it a waterfall, lake, river, pond, fountain or the ocean? Imagine it in the middle of your chest just above your ribs and below your collar bone.

Now that you have chosen your favorite place and can imagine it in the center of your chest (your heartspace and infinite heart) continue to breathe. Find your own rhythm as you begin your journey from the top of your head to your favorite place that brings you joy–your infinite heart. Imagine traveling the path downward and notice what’s different. Move into your heartspace, your infinite heart, and feel the joy it brings to you. Allow yourself to BE joy-filled.

Know that you are safe and allow yourself to feel the infinite and expansive space of your heart. Allow wonder, love and joy to emerge. Ahhhhh. When you are ready you can return to your conscious mind by taking two or three more breaths and slowly opening your eyes. Feel your body. Move your neck, shoulders and spine gently. Rub your arms and legs. Stretch and return to now. Sip some water and, if you like, write down what you notice that’s different from your experience. Don’t think. Just write. What did you notice?

The more you practice, the more you will notice and feel. Moving into your infinite heart will become easier each time. You can ask a question before you begin or in the moment ask God or your guides to show you what unconditional love feels like in the space of your infinite heart. Enjoy being amazed.

Awakening Your Infinite Heart

September 27, 2012 · Filed Under Higher Consciousness, Spiritual Wisdom · Comment 

Awakening

In the light of dawn and the dark of night
I feel the yearning in my heart.
Rejoice, for as the light grows brighter from within
I find all that I seek.

What does it mean for one to awaken?

First, the awakening that takes place within the heartspace is more metaphorical. It is not necessarily the physical heart muscle, although the heart muscle is conscious just as every part of our being is conscious.

We associate the heart with emotions and love. We speak of broken hearts, mending hearts, open hearts, grieving hearts and loving hearts in everyday experiences. Some may even call this place soul, life force and essence.

Imagine a neutral and expansive heartspace. Physically feel it in the center of your chest, below the collar bone and above the rib cage. Feel it clear and centered. It is here when thoughts are quiet and minds are silent that infinite wisdom, cosmic information and knowledge and answers to our greatest questions can be received and understood clearly.

Infinite information is available to guide, assist and inform in each moment if our conscious minds are quiet enough so that information can filter through and be sorted out. This is when meditation and other tools to help quiet the mind are helpful and useful.

The Infinite Heart is neutral and expansive!

How do you know when you are awakening?

Some people have described it: “I feel restless but I don’t know what it is.” “I have an amazing life but I know there is something more.” “My life is blessed. I know it. I want to give back but I don’t know how.” “I feel as though I’m supposed to do something more with my life. I want to make a contribution, a difference, and I’m not sure what it looks like.”

Your experience is yours.
Embrace and own it!

Age doesn’t seem to be a factor. Comparable comments have been made by people in their twenties as well as their sixties and older. Each person’s journey of awakening is an individual one.

A person chooses this awakening at precisely the time it’s felt and the experience develops. Divine it is and it’s in divine timing.

Have you ever found yourself wishing that your awakening had happened earlier?

I did, and I realized that I chose the time for my own awakening and also chose the other types of experiences to create the foundation that would best support my life purpose and journey along the way.

Practical tools are available for everyone’s use. Astrology, numerology, subtle energy practices, QiGong, Tai Chi, Yoga, meditation and breath work, to name a few, are available to help quiet racing thoughts and bring awareness into the conscious mind. All of these practices provide helpful ways to move into your heartspace more easily where answers and inner peace can be found—a place where feeling centered and grateful feel natural.

Help is available.
You are never alone.
Ask!

If your journey has been an evolving and transformational one, you can think of it as a spiral and not a straight line going directly from point A to point B. Through the awakening process, like the spiral, imagine that there is no ending but only a deeper level of awakening taking place.

The analogy of peeling an onion which has many layers is also used to explain this process.

The spiral image is perfect since it has no ending and it has no beginning. On the spiral you are just at a different point on the spiral.

As a conscious choice to expand and grow is made limited thinking, beliefs, habits and expectations are released.

Remember who you’ve been and remember who you are. Remember who you’ve always been and why you’re here.

You are a creator
who creates in each and every moment.
Consciously choose to expand and grow.

When awakening begins we may remember that we have no separation from the Divine. We begin to know that the Divine can be and is described by many names which include God, Creator, Spirit, All That Is/Was/and Ever Will Be, the ONE, or Allah. No name is all-inclusive. Many people have no name at all to describe the Divine.

It really doesn’t matter what you call the ONE Source of All. Here we’ll use the name of God to describe the ONE Source. Please insert your own name for the Divine and ONE Source, the one that is most comfortable for you when you see the name of God used.

We are not separate from God.

The Divine ONE Source

is known by many names

and the Divine,

the ONE Source

can be known by no name.

As the journey of awakening begins it may seem confusing at first. You may feel as though you don’t know what to do next or how to get clear answers. This is when getting in touch with your heart’s desire helps. It’s not uncommon to hear, “I can’t meditate; it’s too hard for me to focus; I don’t have time; or I don’t have a quiet space where I’m not interrupted.”

To assist you during the awakening process we will be sharing, on our next two blog posts, different Opening Experiences to help you move into your infinite heartspace and feel its expansiveness.

Surrender
and let go
of what you believe
the outcome is.


You are more than you think!

Reclaim Your Power Through Your Infinite Heart

July 14, 2011 · Filed Under Spiritual Wisdom · Comment 

Wanted to share an article called: “Reclaim Your Power Through Your Infinite Heart” that is on EzineArticles.com We have been talking about on Facebook on How To Learn To Be… and this article helps you do that… Enjoy!

How do you Reclaim Your Power
through your Infinite Heart?

You might even wonder what the infinite heart is. Let me explain. Have you ever had an “AhHa” moment? You know the moments when all of a sudden something comes clear and the light bulb goes on so to speak? I recently attended a seminar where several light bulbs lit up for me!

I was sitting in the audience and listening to the speaker, Dr. Richard Bartlett, talk about going into the heart space. When we access information from our hearts we are in a neutral and expansive space. Another image that he shared was of the brain. I loved it. He invited us to think of the brain as the hardware in a computer and the infinite information that is available throughout time and space as the software.

The goal is to quiet our left brains so that our right brains can receive limitless information with the help of our highest self and guides, bringing the information into our heart space. I totally understood this and thought, this is what I recommend to clients, move from head and thought into the heart space. New language came to help explain the process.

I was tracking and then the AhHa came. Dr. Richard Bartlett went on to say, how many people really know what being in the heart feels like? All of a sudden I got it and thought, of course there are a lot of people who don’t know what being in the heart feels like. How do I know? I see many clients and know many subtle energy practitioners who have closed their hearts for a variety of reasons. Part of growth and expansion includes quieting thoughts and opening the heart space to receive infinite wisdom, knowledge and information that is available to everyone.

I began to think about how we access the heart space. Meditation certainly works to quiet thoughts and provides a way to enter the heart space and achieve inner stillness. For those of you who like to meditate, ENJOY! I personally find meditation enjoyable. When I’m in the quiet stillness of my inner sacred space I find answers and clarity. All is possible. Runners describe a similar feeling when they are in the “zone”. For those of you who find it more challenging to reach an inner stillness where infinite information is available to access I suggest trying the following:

First, think of an activity or something that you truly enjoy. For example, if you like to dance you can imagine a dance floor in the center of your chest, your heart space-a place that is not your physical heart but one that some might call your “high heart”. Now, imagine dancing down into your heart space. How fun! Begin at the top of your head through your brain, down your neck and through your throat into your chest arriving at the dance floor of your choice.

Feel the amazing joy and peace once you arrive. Know that this feeling is yours to always access. It is a tangible way to move from your head and thought to an inner sacred space where thought can quiet easily. You might find dancing is not your favorite so pick something you love like cooking, skiing, running, meeting a loved one, or performing on stage! Use your imagination to create something that is uniquely yours!

Yes, it is yours to own and create. The information, wisdom, and knowledge that is available for you to access is limitless. Before you begin your descent into your infinite heart create an intention, ask a question, or ask the universe or God what serves your greatest good to know right now. Remember, all is possible when limitations are released. Journal what comes after your quiet experience and be delighted and amazed!

I love to journey with people who are ready to reclaim their power; people who remember that each one of us is a creator, creating in each and every moment — creating our own realities; people who are ready to grow and expand their awareness and consciousness and may not know exactly how to move forward; as well as people who are ready to shift, change and transform. Where is your journey taking you?
