Heart Magic Meditation

No matter where we’re at in our love lives, some quiet time nourishing our inner selves will support the relationships most important to us. Try this simple meditation…

Give yourself five or ten minutes to centre yourself. Sit quietly and focus on your breath to become calm and relaxed. In that relaxation, imagine an inner light coming from your solar plexus (just above your belly). This is your own inner self shining out into the world. Take a moment to get a feeling of your inner energy flowing into the world. What is the feeling of this energy? Is there a particular colour, sound, movement or even picture you associate with this energy? Rest in the inner light for a few more minutes. Then let your awareness expand beyond your own body to feel all the different sensations and feelings around you. Recognize that all these feelings, sensations, perceptions represent different paths that you can choose to focus your awareness on. Contained within every second is a multitude of various options for you to choose to take. Wait until you feel a pull in a certain direction, a tendency for your awareness to focus on one particular feeling or sound and sit with that feeling for a few moments. Allow any thoughts, images or associations to come through your mind – don’t edit or try to interpret what you feel – simply let the images or feelings move through your mind. When you feel ready, bring your awareness back into your body and slowly come back into your normal waking mind.
