The more love and care you send out toward a person or issue, the more you come into alignment with your spirit, and the more your intuition comes on-line. –Doc Childre and Howard Martin, HeartMath Solution
Did you know we each have two hearts?
One heart that beats in our chest and an invisible one pulsing with light and love? I’m talking of course, of your “spiritual” heart. The spiritual heart is the center of love within each of us.
If you have ever watched your young child in a play at school and felt your chest fill and your eyes brim with tears of joy, these reactions were generated by the spiritual heart.
The intoxicating feeling of falling in love is also born from the spiritual heart.
And so is the compassion and empathy we feel when we reach out to embrace and comfort someone who is going through troubling times.
The intuitive heart connects us to all living creatures
Through the intuitive heart we sense how others are feeling. We can “read” the pulsations of energy sent out by the intuitive heart and know if someone is sad or glad and we don’t even need to be in the same room!
The intuitive heart is a constantly broadcasting our own emotional state and picking up the emotional state of others too.
To honor your intuitive heart this Valentines Day try tuning in to the broadcast being sent out by the ones you love.
Do an experiment:
Close your eyes and visualize the spiritual heart of the person you wish to connect with. You can see it in the shape of a Valentine heart or you can visualize the actual physical heart or see it as a ball of pulsating light. As long as you know whom you wish to be connected with the image you choose to focus your mind on doesn’t matter.
Now send this person as much love as you can muster straight from your own intuitive heart center. See the love you wish to send as a ball of swirling pulsing energy being absorbed by their intuitive heart. Now you are connected to that person.
Next, see the person’s face in your mind’s eye. Allow yourself to examine whatever thought, image or feeling that comes to your attention.
What came to mind? Did you feel an emotion or physical sensation? Did you hear a word or thought? Did you “see” something similar to a dream fragment or memory?
Whatever reaction you became aware of immediately afterward is related to this person because you set your intention upon connecting to them.
We are always intuitively connected to the people we are closest to
When a mother senses that her child has been hurt it is due to the strong intuitive bond she has with the child. When you know without a doubt, what your spouse is thinking it is because of these same strong intuitive connections. Even longtime friends will have forged these intuitive bonds.
Open your intuitive heart to the world
Did you know you can extend your intuitive connection beyond your small circle? You can forge an intuitive connection in an instant to anyone you wish to. All it takes is using the little example I gave above. Set your intention on someone and instantly you’re connected.
We can be intuitively connected via the heart to the homeless person we pass each day by the bus the stop when commute to work. We can be be intuitively connected by our heart to the stern looking police officer directing traffic and even to people we may dislike.
Each time we choose to connect heart to heart to another person we are exercising the intuitive heart
And you know what happens when we exercise a muscle, right? It performs better. The more often we practice using the intuitive heart to connect to another human being the more intuitive we become. We get better at sensing another person’s mood or pain. We expand our capacity for empathy and compassion. We become less judgmental too. In other words, we begin to evolve spiritually.
Years ago I was privileged to meet the father of my dear friend Vicki. Her father, Dr. John F. Cogswell, practiced psychology in California. Many of his clients were aspiring actors. He developed an exercise to help them over come their inhibitions and insecurities about performing.
During group sessions he had each of them take a turn “walking” as someone else in the group. He instructed them to stand, take of their shoes and “walk” back and forth while telling themselves that they were now “so and so” from the group.
As they walked back and forth pretending to “be” this other group member they were instructed to give a monologue on what they were feeling and thinking as this other person. Dr. Cogswell thought that doing this exercise in front of the group would help the person get over their self-consciousness and develop their confidence.
What Dr. Cogswell stumbled upon quite by accident, was that as each of the actors practiced walking they became highly accurate intuitives!
The mere act of setting one’s intention upon connecting to another human being had opened up some channel between them where the person “walking” as the other group member was able to accurately “read” what the the other person was feeling. Not only could they accurately describe it but they also felt it deeply too.
We become “one” with the other person in a spiritual sense
“Walking” or just setting the intention to connect to someone to feel what they feel helps us to experience our “oneness” with each other. While each of our spirits appears to be contained in a “separate body” we are no more separate than a wave is from the rest of the ocean.
This brings to mind a film I saw called, “Powder.” The film was about a young man who possessed the ability to truly “feel” what others felt. He was what we now call an “empath.”
In the film he takes the hand of a hunter who has just shot a deer and places it on the dying deer. Because he is holding the hand of the empath the hunter is able to feel what the deer feels. He experiences exactly what the innocent creature he has just shot, is going through as he is dying. The emotions he senses overwhelm him and he yanks his hand from the clutches of the young empath.
As the camera closes in on the the hunter’s expression we clearly see that he was deeply affected by this experience.
Feeling empathy for another living creature can and does change us
Just imagine if we were all to set our intention to open our intuitive hearts. Could the swell of empathy for one another change the way we interact as people, as communities and as nations around the world?
Yes, I think it would.
Kindness, empathy and compassion are sorely needed now more than ever
This Valentine’s Day commit to open your intuitive heart. Let’s celebrate our oneness. “Walk” as another person today and open up your heart to the “oneness” that is the true reality we are here to discover and, I suspect, the true meaning of Valentine’s day.
Tell people about this. Share this practice.
Have a Happy Valentine’s Day and let’s see if by next Valentine’s Day we might be celebrating living on a more peaceful, loving planet full of open intuitive hearts.
Have you ever experienced your “intuitive heart opening?” What were the circumstances? How did it change you?
