Awakening the Power of the Heart
Meditation not only quiets your mind, it also expands your capacity for compassion.
There is a center in the body where love and spirit are joined, and that center is heart. It is your heart that aches or fills with love, that feels compassion and trust, and that seems empty or overflowing. Within the heart is a subtler center that experiences spirit, but you can’t feel spirit as an emotion or physical sensation.
How to meditate on the heart?
Begin by sitting in a comfortable position and close your eyes.We ca sit on the chair or on the floor with back supported against the wall. For just this moment, let go of your thoughts and the outside world. Focus your attention on your spiritual heart center, in the middle of your chest, and be aware of your heart as a space.
The heart center is a point of awareness where feelings enter. In its essence, the heart is pure emptiness, pervaded by peace and a subtle light. But don’t strain to find a light of any kind. All you need to feel is whatever is there.
For the next 30 minutes, sit and listen. Your heart will begin to release emotions, memories, wishes, fears, and dreams long stored inside. As it does, you will find yourself paying attention. Accepting and allowing.
During the meditation your mind will get distracted. It is very natural. Each time when you find yourself drifting away gently come back to the heart space.
If you cannot meditate on the heart space. Start focusig on the natural rhytm of the breath. Follow each inhalation and exhalation. Let the breath relax you.
