I have been learning that the more I open my heart space (an energetic field that exists just in front of my physical heart), the more at peace I am.
I recently took a Matrix Energetics seminar that blew my socks off. Part of what happened, was that my heart was cranked open quite a bit. When this happens, I find myself filled with joy and peace, and nothing bugs me. One of the facilitators that was at the seminar was a man named William. He has an amazing ability to crank his heart wide open, feel around psychically, and know things that he feels, are absolute truth. He led a talk, where we stood around and practiced dropping our awareness from our heads, into our hearts. We practiced just being in our heart. That’s where our real power lies, and where the magic happens.
Each morning of the seminar, we would begin the day with some rock music; all of us up on our feet, clapping and getting jazzed. As the music played, one of the seminar participants, an elderly man, jumped up on stage with our teachers, and boogied to the Beatles. Every time I looked at him he reminded me of my father, who died this past year. And every time, I would become filled with pain, and would cry, missing my dad. After spending 45 minutes with William, the next time the music cranked up and this man started to dance, I was able to clap along and not cry. Something had shifted the grief, and the pain was gone… in the space of a 45 minute.
The day after I came home from the seminar, I had an Energy Healing class (6th of a six-week class), and my heart was still so open that my aura was twice its normal size. I was floating so high. And all the little things in life that would usually pick at me and wear me down (the kid bitching), just rolled like water off a duck’s back. I barely felt like eating. And I woke up in such a light and cheery mood.
It took several days, but the high isn’t quite as high. And my desire to snack too often is back. But some things have definitely shifted for good. It’s hard to say exactly what, but I feel it.
What I am learning, from this experience, and also from an online class I’m participating in for a year (365 Ways to Awaken Your Mystic Heart by Sara Wiseman), is that the more we can open our hearts, the better off we all are. When your heart is open, pain slides out. Fears drop away. Anger dissipates. Insecurities dissolve. And here’s the biggie: we remember that we are part of the One that is all of us.
This is the path I’m on. Wouldn’t it be an amazing world if everyone were?
What an uplifting experience!
Thanks! It was. What I didn’t mention, that I also recently learned, is that when we experience huge tragedy, the kind that brings us together, also cracks our hearts open and brings us all closer to remembering that we are all one of One.
That is very meaningful… and brings light to difficult things.
I loved every word of this. We are capable of so much more, if we only choose to remain open to it. I’ve been having a hard time this week,, mired down in grief. But finally, yesterday, I felt a peace come over me. I did some Reiki on myself. I meditated for an hour. I prayed a lot. That night, I slept soundly, my pain and grief eased, if only for a moment. But today, I find I also am feeling a bit lighter. It’s a process to healing.
Darla, you go girl! Using your tools and voila! Yes, I have also learned over the past 2 years that I have things to work on that are processes because they are in layers. I heal a layer and a new one pops up. But after a while, I sense a definite and often permanent shift. Sorry about your pain and grief- that truly sucks. And look at what it’s teaching you; how to use your skills.
