The Power of the Heart
by Bonnie Moss (c) 2012 July



 Since emotional processess can 
work faster than the mind, it takes 
a power stronger than the mind to 
bend perception,override emotional 
circuitry,and provide us with intuitive 
feeling. It takes the power of the 
heart instead. by Doc Childre, Founder,  
Institute of HeartMath

There are many who seek healing methods some 
of which are based on Eastern(not totally 
geographical) practices such as yoga, Chi Quong 
or tai chi. There are spiritual practices and 
traditions around the world, in different cultures 
and belief systems with the same message. 
We have the ability to heal ourselves,to feel 
that interconnectedness with the universe, if 
we could  just sit still and listen to our inner
 voices, our inner guidance.

A culture of the heart is emerging.There is an 
era of creativity and compassion which is coming. 
The heart is playing a starring role in this new age... 
Healthy Heart Meditation

Healing with the chakras to release the toxic 
effects of daily stress is believed to be popularized 
by the New Age Movement.These energy centers 
can help to bring balance to life, to feel more positive 
and help to release the toxins we accumulate in our 
daily lives.Through meditation, opening and 
balancing the chakras help to activate these 
energy centers . And what is chakra?

Chakra


The word chakra is derived from a Sanskrit word meaning wheel, a spinning wheel. Many who work with chakras can see each primary chakra as a spinning vortex with its specific color.Chakras activate specific areas of the energy system. There are many chakra points in the human body, but for healing and balancing purposes, focus is on the seven main chakras.The seven chakras are located along the spinal column in ascending order from the base of the spine to the top of the head. From the bottom of the spine is the Root Chakra; two inches beneath the belly button is the Sacral chakra,between the belly button and the base of the ribcage is the Solar Plexus, in the center, between the breasts is the Heart Chakra, next is the Throat Chakra, between the eyebrows is the popular Third Eye,on top of the head is the Crown Chakra. It is not the intention of this article to deal with the main seven chakras in detail. My focus is on the heart chakra. The Heart Chakra The heart is the place where we live our passions. It is frail and easily broken,but wonderfully resilient. There is no point in trying to deceive the heart.It depends upon our honesty for its survival... Leo Buscaglia The heart is the center of love, a human energy system. Does love heal all? Who has not felt the pain of a broken heart, grief and bereavement, the devastating effect of betrayal, emotional issues, abandonment, rejection, separation -just to name a few in a long list of hurtful situations? It takes more than a physical healing to dry the tears of a wounded heart. If neglected, pain from the heart affects the spirit, drains energy,mind,body and spirit are disconnected. More often than not, medical attention is not enough to heal heart problems. Believe it or not, we are all connected to the Divine. We have the gift of intuition, of feeling, of knowing. We just have to learn how to tap into these gifts to see us through the bad times and appreciate the good times. Is blind faith enough? Not all of us are willing to believe, much less to open our minds to find that deeper connection with the Divine. The heart chakra is located in the center of your chest, in Sanskrit, it is Anahata Chakra,meaning unstuck. It is linked to the physical and spiritual selves. It is the mid-point of our physical bodies. It lies between the three lower chakras, which keep us moving in the physical realm. Above the heart chakra are the three upper chakras, which help us grow in the spiritual realm where our thoughts, imagination, intuition and creativity can be realized. Proponents of chakra healing and balancing of the energies of the main chakras, believe that this brings about healing of dis-ease, opens the intuitive abilities which we born with, calms the mind and paves the way to find inner peace. We learn how to let life flow, be more appreciative of the countless blessings that we are blind to. We come to realize that problems and worries need not dominate our waking hours thus tormenting the sub-conscious. Through the heart chakra,we recognize and accept the importance of love- unconditional love which is open to all of us. As the heart chakra expands, it includes the other six major chakras, brings into harmony the physical and the spiritual self, thus bringing life in balance. Meditating on the heart chakra expands the meaning of thoughts, words and deeds- it moves us into the true meaning of love- a universal and unconditional love. The heart chakra radiates power that helps us live abundant and fulfilling lives. It is a guiding force that connects the physical and spiritual planes that help us avoid being self-centered, un-caring, feeling like a victim and other negative attributes. We share a world beyond ourselves, we move beyond the apparent boundaries of our physical world, be more aware and conscious that we are all connected. This is easier said than done. There are many forms of meditation. Working with the chakras is a meditative process along with visualization. There are resources on the internet that offer good meditative practise on the heart chakra. Meditation is a very personal choice. What works for me, may not for someone else. I encourage you to use the power of the internet to find guidance on opening your chakras. Information is at our fingertips, there is no harm in trying proven methods, or belief system. If it does not work for you, no harm done, but you take away some knowledge. Do try to find the power of your heart!
