I once read that the heart is deceitful.
How can the one thing that never stops giving life be deceitful? The heart never stops working from the day you enter this world to the day you leave.
Have you ever thought about the significance of your heart? What do I mean by that?
Well, think about it. In utero, the heart is the first organ that is developed and functions without the rest of the body being fully developed. It is the core of ourselves that is difficult to describe or define, but we all know that it’s there.
Think of the feeling you get when you love someone, or someone loves you. You feel supported, you feel accepted, comfort, vulnerability, passion, and a variation of feelings. It makes you feel good on the inside.
Now, we’re going to become aware of the feeling or the sensation of saying “thank you heart”. “I love you heart and I’m grateful for your purpose.” Now, I want you to repeat that softly to yourself.
The point of focusing a meditation on your heart is to have a sense of your emotions, because we know that emotions can sometimes get the best of us. If you get upset or angry, you can’t think straight, you can’t act right, and it’s difficult for you to make sound decisions.
There is a delicate balance between your emotions and your heart. I want you to stay focused on thinking and saying to yourself “Thank you heart. I love you. I’m grateful for your purpose.” And just see how that makes you feel. You might find that acknowledging this vital organ will invoke a sense of awareness you never really had before and you can begin to be thankful for its presence and gift of life that it circulates with every beat.
Peace, OM and Namaste.
