“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all of the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
I would take this thought one step further and say that we ARE LOVE, in the very fabric of our beingness, in the very centre of all that we be. I find myself inspired by one of the HeartFire Gateway offerings and intrigued by information which is new to me. Apparently there are seven layers of muscle around the heart in a spiraling configuration, I have always loved the shape of the spiral and in this case you are following it into the centre of the heart. The memories of our life’s journey are held in those layers around the heart, anything unresolved creates a barrier or veil that impedes the flow of love.
I tried the meditation that was suggested which was to breathe in and out through the heart and to allow the memories to rise up, then collect them in a magical sack to be transformed in the centre of my being. What I felt was deep sorrow, it felt like liquid blue moving very slowly and rather than put it into a bag I allowed it to move into the centre of my heart. As it reached the centre it became golden, bright and glowing, and was transmuted into light, then dissolved into nothingness.
When I clear stuff I usually experience the energy moving upwards and out my crown chakra, so this was quite different having it move into my centre and be transmuted in that way. I enjoyed the experience very much and will probably do it again, although I think the memories we need to clear are not just in the heart, they can be anywhere in the body. But I can imagine having stirrings in the belly and encouraging the energy to move up into the heart fire at my centre. Isn’t it great that there are so many different ways of doing things, life is a smorgasboard of the most wondrous variety!!
