Wednesdays Energize the Heart Chakra

Wednesday resonates with our Heart Chakra!

pink roses

FRAGRANCE: Rose EO–stimulates the  Thymus Gland

The signature of a plant, its life and where it grows, all give us information about its spiritual state. A flower’s color and its signatures are the key to how flower essences are chosen and may have an affinity to the chakra of that color.   All plants have powerful harmonizing qualities that combine both earthly and celestial energies. Its subtle, vibrational energies  influence the finer energies of our central nervous system.  The energetic qualities of rose are cooling and moist and these qualities indicate that rose oil is recommended where there is excess heat. Rose oil brings in positive energy and seals the aura when its healing work is done. It also brings love and compassion to the heart chakra and heals emotional wounds.

MEDITATION:

The Heart Chakra (Anahata) is our energy point of love and compassion. Located physically just behind the heart area, this chakra can be incredibly powerful when used as a focus for meditation.

Sit cross-legged. Let the tips of your index finger and thumb touch. Put your left hand on your left knee and your right hand in front of the lower part of your breast bone (so a bit above the solar plexus).

Concentrate on the Heart chakra at the spine, level with the heart.

Chant the sound YAM.

######################

  To  tune into the love that flows all around you, this meditation can help you harmonize with the powerful emotion of love. Allow your heart to connect to the beat of the hearts of those around you and guide you as you dance along the path of life.

Lie comfortably with your spine straight. Close your eyes and take a deep breath.

Take a deep inhalation, and on the exhale hug your arms around your body. Give yourself a squeeze.

As you exhale, release your arms and feel yourself open, yet connected to the earth.

Lift your chin slightly and position yourself as if your heart were to lead you in all things.

Proceed, loving yourself passionately, let your heart lead and feel surrounded by love, compassion, joy and connected to the world around you.

Orange Sacral Chakra Monday

When I think of Orange sacral chakra Monday and then opening, embracing, liberating and releasing inhibitions, I always think Jasmine. It makes the process of opening up joyful rather than fearful. It promotes love, sensuality and sexuality, creativity, and living in the moment. Jasmine harmonizes and promotes wholeness. So fill you and your surroundings with the fragrance of Jasmine and feel the embracing flowing love of self.

Pose

This low squat focuses on the pelvis and allows you to be open and receptive physically, emotionally, and energetically in order to accept yourself fully.

Affirmation
I accept and forgive myself.

Remind yourself of your intention, inhale the jasmine, repeating the intention, look at the Orange crystal or a picture of an orange crystal and repeat your intention a couple more times. Mine is

Meditate:  Lie or recline in a comfortable position.
Close your eyes and take a deep breath or two or more….
Allow yourself to be aware of your body — do a scan of your body to find any areas of tension. Breathe into them and release them.
As you empty your mind of all other thoughts, feel the fluidity within your body. It reminds you that you are a sensory being – accustomed to feeling, creating and enjoying the juiciness of life.
You feel your body, while externally still, full of potential of the force of life that flows like water in and out of all that surrounds you.
This potential creates a nurturing sensation that cradles you. You are moved by its gentle, rocking flow.
As you are saturated by this feeling of flowing potential, imagine it expanding throughout your body. This is the force behind your creativity and passion. It gives you a warm and fluid sensuality that is attracting on many levels and it fills you with a vibrancy that resonates in all that you do.
In this state, repeat to yourself: “I am a sensory being full of creative potential. I embrace life with passion and enjoy plunging into joy and happiness. My senses are alive, aware and connected.”
Acknowledge that a happy life is one that reinforces positive expression of joy and passion.
When you feel ready, open your eyes and continue to enjoy your day to its fullest being mindful of your intention as you follow your breathe and feel he liquid flow of your creativity.

Namaste

Yoga:
Be seated. Close your eyes and turn your attention inward toward your heart. Be still and quiet and take this time to witness your innermost self. Drop down beneath the mind chatter into the cave of your heart and listen there for the inner voice. It takes practice to get quiet enough and willing enough to connect this deeply with your true self. So do not be discouraged if this seems challenging—it is! Through regular practice of listening in, you will slowly be able to tell the difference between the inner voice of your heart and the neurotic chatter of the mind. Over time you will be able to observe both. This inner listening cultivates a discrimination. Discrimination supports skillful choices, which lead you toward your heart’s calling, your purpose. The result is bringing compassion and love into all you do.

As a preparatory practice bring your hands to prayer pose at the heart and begin to lightly tap the sternum with the thumbs. Let it be a rhythmic and gentle tap. As you are tapping keep the spine long and the heart open. This is a great way to stimulate the heart energy. Spend at least 2 minutes tapping, more if you like. When you are done release your hands to your lap and take a moment to feel the resonant vibration at the heart.
