Feeling the opportunity to go really deep
Aug 19, 2019
Have you been feeling the opportunity to go really deep?
Over the last little while it seems that every one I work with is being invited to clear, grow and evolve - quite quickly.
Of course with free agency, you can choose whether you take up this opportunity or let it pass you by. I have been mostly choosing to take the opportunity to clear, grow and release. Boy its a great ride and I'm really glad I am. With each wave comes a deeper appreciation of joy and gratitude with life. Every now and then I recognise that I have been avoiding...Yes, I'm human.
Coming up two years ago I had a premonition dream that showed me upcoming events. The key take home from the dream was to ride the waves. Stay above the waves and I'd be fine. Let myself sink and it was a different story.
I am still very grateful for this dream. Even though I didn't understand what it was about at the time, it has been a life saver.
One of the ways that I was shown to stay above the waves, was to really connect through my heartspace. It's a different way of connecting, bigger, more loving and peaceful that other ways I had been doing.
Like you I had known about “heart space” for years. Actually I vividly remember the first time I consciously became aware. It was 20 + years ago. I was in a phenomenal meditative space and all of a sudden felt my heart burst, like a present being torn open with party poppers, streamers and all sorts of “stuff” escaping. Quite frankly I had no way of making sense of it. Extreme joy, a feeling of coming home and complete new sensations swept through my body.
At this time in my life I was immersed in academia, embracing a career that prided itself on a scientific practitioner model and no-where had I read anyone describing these feelings. I found myself trying to stuff things back into my “heart”, and kept quiet about it cause I didn’t know how to make sense of it or what anyone would think.
Gratefully over the years I’ve learned a little more!
Fast forward to 2 years ago with my premonition dream and I was being reminded how important the heart space is. Since I’ve been connecting this way I can feel how connecting through my mind was still keeping me separate in some subtle way. Keeping me feeling smaller and less that I truely am.
I was reminded of this a couple of weeks ago during a session with a client who is embraced in a scientific practitioner field of work and was cautious of connecting with her heart space. She reminded me of how much effort it can take when your relying on your mind to connect (or put it another way “thinking” into your heart space). Your mind is fabulous and an important part of you, but not all of you.
Over the years as I've felt into my heart space more I have become more present in my body, can recognise a partnership between my soul and body and have way more gratitude for me than ever before. I'm developing (still a work in progress) a felt sense of what people have described for millennia - everything you need is inside you. I find it so easy through my heart to connect to Creator, Laws, my guides and such like.
If, like my client, you ever have moments of finding it hard to the following ideas made a difference for me.
Feel into it. Because of my academic background I was so used to thinking and using my logical brain. I found “introducing” my nervous system to my heart space was very powerful. I did this by"chatting” to my nervous system letting it know my heart had a brain as well. (This seemed to ease my adrenal response and I imagined my nervous system extending itself to shake hands with my heart brain. Sounds weird as I type it but it really made a difference.) Up until then everything I’d read or listened to I had thought about and imagined with my brain. This time I really felt it.
Imagine pulling a chair up in your heart for your brain to sit in and watch. Let it know that it can relax and enjoy the ride.
Breathe light into your heart space with every breath. I adapted this from Susie and Simon Heilo (I am Sovereign - I love their work and their book is coming out soon). With each in-breath imagine your heart breathing in light and expanding around you, As you breath out, your heart breathes out light taking anything that is ready to release back to Creator of All That Is.
The following is a visualisation that consistently works well for me at present - its quick and only takes a minute or two. As you gently breathe, imagine that you can focus on your heart and how it feels. Then imagine that you can focus on one particular heart cell. As you do this, imagine that you can see an individual atom in that cell. Imagine that you can see the nucleus of that atom. Go into this, into the proton and feel the brilliant sparkly light. Go through into that light and imagine it merging with your whole body, surrounding it with Light. This way really helps me appreciate that everything really is within!
There are many other ways of connecting with your heart. I’d love to hear which ways are helpful for you.
