Heart Meditation- Shine


I did another heart meditation this morning.

After a few deep breaths, I go into my heart. I'm finding it interesting how I get in. This time, there was a slit in my heart and I just spread it open and walked in. It was more realistic this time, being in my heart, watching the walls throbbing and hearing it beat strongly. Soon I saw a drummer beating his rhythm on the drum matching the rhythm of my heart. His message to me was to keep rhythm with life, with the seasons, with nature.

I walked into the next chamber, lower right, and entered a garden. I went to an apple tree and began to pick apples, placing them into a basket. "Apples are good for your heart". Eat to cleanse the system. Time for a clearing out, getting rid of the old. Eat a cleansing diet.

I walked up a ladder, feeling my hands on each rung, pulling myself up through a hatch into my upper left chamber. It was filled with beautiful crystal chandeliers, a table set with beautiful china. It was overflowing with abundance of beautiful things, but they were in an attic. The message was to let the beauty out, let it shine rather than hiding it. All this is meant to be used and shared, not hidden away.

I walked into the right upper chamber, just stepping over easily into it. I saw a baby. A newborn all swaddled up, but it had a light, a halo around it. I thought it was Christ, but then more babies appeared and they all had halos. They kept multiplying and soon they were young children and we joined hands in a large and continuously growing circle, expanding and aging all at the same time. Soon we were all old and began to die falling to the ground like seeds.

It gave me something to ponder. Looking at humanity as seeds.

What kind of seed are you?

What will be reaped from your existance on Earth?

What fruits do you bring to the table?

Interestingly, I chose an angel card after this meditation and the card was "Light".

"Acknowledge the Light that you are. Share that Light with the world. Activate your own inner light and be aware of its uniqueness."

Imagine if we all shared the Light within us, fearless in sharing our true inner Self, sharing the gifts we have openly with others...

In the words of Buddha:

"Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds"

What a wonderful meditation idea! I've done others, but this is a new thing I might try here directly.

Thank you!

I enjoyed this.
I enjoyed the painting too.
There is a big private school here named after Saint Rose of Lima, too.
