The Infinity-Heart Meditation

I am currently in the process of writing a book, guided by the Neteru, who are the gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt.  One day, as I sat in stillness, I was given me this meditation. It can be used to open and connect to Nut, the Sky Mother and Geb, the Earth Father. They are the energy of creation which manifested our universe. They want to connect with our hearts, at this time, so we may wake up and remember who and what we really are.

Doing this meditation will open your heart and expand your awareness. I have been doing it for about a month and find it very powerful, both grounding and opening. I would love your feedback on what you experience when you practice it.

Geologists recently discovered that the core of the Earth is made of a huge iron crystal. Connecting to this crystal core is a great way to tap into the energy of Geb. Begin by breathing into your heart and feel your heart open. Imagine at the base of your spine you have a tap root. Send this tap root down into the crystal core of the Earth. Then send your heart energy down through this tap root and feel it connect with the iron crystal core of the Earth.  Breathe the Earth energy up into your heart. Do this four times.

Next you are going to connect your heart to Galactic Center. Scientists now know that there is a “black hole” at the center of the Milky Way. This black hole is the “womb of creation” at the center of the Milky Way galaxy. Connecting to it is a great way to connect to the energy of Nut, the Sky Mother. Breathe into your heart center and send your heart energy and up into the Galactic Center. Do this four times. Sit quietly for a minute or two and notice how it feels to connect your heart to the Earth and the Sky.

Now, you are going to create an infinity sign with your heart energy. The infinity sign will run vertically between the Galactic Center and the Crystal Core of the Earth. The energy will cross-over at your heart center as it flows from Sky to Earth and back again. This infinity-wave opens, activates and energizes your heart. Bringing you into a deeper connection with  Source.

Begin, by breathing the Sky energy down from the Galactic Center along the left side of your head and into your heart. Allow it to crossover at your heart and continue down the right side of your body and into the Crystal Core of the Earth. Then breathe the energy up the left side of your body crossing over at your heart and continuing up along the right side of your head and out into the Galactic Center.  Do this at least four times or more, until you feel complete.

This meditation allows you to become a “light-bridge” for so heart-consciousness can dance freely between Heaven and Earth. As we enter 2012 it is important for these energies to flow through and energize our hearts and for our hearts to bridge the Earth and Sky. This meditation will keep you open, grounded and present to messages from Source. I recommend practicing it two times a day.

Tantra Tip of the Day- Heart Wisdom

In the west, we equate intelligence with the brain and the mind, with thinking. Consequently, we spend much of our time stuck in our heads.  Indigenous cultures value the intelligence that comes from the heart as more important than intellect. We could call this the heart-mind. Research is beginning to reveal that the heart has its own intelligence. The brain receives important information from the heart and responds to it. In the past we have considered the heart just a hard working muscle that pumps blood. Actually it is a sensitive organ that gathers and processes vital information in 4 important ways.

Biochemically– The heart produces a hormone called, ANF. That helps to keep the body in balance. ANF regulates blood pressure, edema and the electrolytes and affects the blood vessels, kidneys, adrenal glands and other regulatory parts of the brain. ANF also modulates stress hormones and supports the reproductive and immune system.

Biophysically– As it beats the heart creates a powerful blood pressure wave that travels rapidly throughout the body, much faster than the actual flow of blood. This is what we feel as out pulse.

Energetically– The heart emanates an electromagnetic field that is approximately five thousand times more powerful than the field produced by the brain. This field affects every part of our body and is broadcasted beyond our physical body.

Neurologically– Every time the heart beats, neural activity is sent to the brain. The heart has the ability to monitor hormonal, rate and pressure information, and translates it into neurological impulses, processes it and sends information back to the brain through the Vagus nerve and spinal cord.

The heart has its own intelligence and effects how we think and feel. Our heart is more than a pump it is a center of awareness that sends information to the brain and the body. It is important that we keep an open heart and listen to our heart’s wisdom. When we live from the heart instead of from the mind we are able to be more present, centered and connected to life.

Heart Wisdom Meditation

Lie down in a quiet place and take some deep breaths into your belly. Let everything go outside of this moment. Place your hands over your heart and begin to focus your awareness on the center of your chest, this is your heart center. Notice what arises. Is your heart open, closed or somewhere in between. If your heart feels tight breathe into it and allow it to begin to relax and open. Then begin to generate a feeling of love and compassion. You can do this by thinking of someone or something you love deeply. Allow this feeling of love to fill your heart center and gradually spread throughout your entire body. Once you are aware of being full of love, allow love to heal and harmonize your body, mind, and emotions. When you feel ready, send this love out to others- those you love, the Earth, or to someone in need. End by offering gratitude for your life and for the opportunity to connect with your heart. Please share this practice with a friend.

Tantra Tip of the Day- Live From the Heart

When my heart is open, I feel good. Joy natural flows through me and out into the world. I see the beauty all around me. The open-heart loves fearlessly.

When I am stuck in my thoughts, I sometimes feel like I am a hamster stuck on an exercise wheel. Thinking, thinking, thinking. It is easy to get trapped in the mind. The mind is always trying to figure things out. There is no figuring it out. Life is. Change happens.

Too much thinking can lead to anxiety, fear, worry and dissatisfaction. When you get in that state of mind the best thing you can do is shift out of your head and reconnect with your heart. I like to begin with the Heart Salutation as a way of reconnecting to my heart.

The Heart Salutation
Extend your arms towards the earth, palms together. Inhale, as you bring them to your heart while keeping your palms together. Exhale, as you bow forward and acknowledge the Divine in with the Sanskrit salutation Namaste. “Namaste” means, “I see the Divine in you as a reflection of the Divine within me.” In this example you are acknowledging the world as a mirror for seeing the Divine within yourself. Inhale, as you straighten back up. Finally, exhale as you allow your hands to return to the starting position, pointed towards the earth.

Bring your awareness into your heart center and breathe into it for a few minutes. Notice if your heart is open, closed or somewhere in between. Allow it to gradually begin to relax and open as you breathe into the center of your chest. Close your eyes and think of someone or something you love deeply and allow love fill your being. When you are ready open your eyes. Look around you and notice how you feel and what you experience around you.
