Meditation on the Hridaya
By Alice B. Clagett
12 September 2016

When neutral mind has not yet been totally achieved, the front funnel of the heart chakra becomes distorted outward when we face other people, whether we are facing just one person or a group of people, say, in a circle. This is because we desire to be loved, which desire is exercised through the front funnel of the heart. We use the front funnel for this purpose simply because our eyes are located on the front of our head, and so, to see people, we face them with both the eyes and the front funnel of the heart.

Neutral mind is achieved by valuing ourselves, and loving ourselves, as much as we value other people’s opinion of us, and their love of us. This self-esteem and self-love are functions of the back funnel of the heart chakra.

To balance the funnels of the heart chakra, during waking consciousness, place the Awareness on the center point of the chest, at the place known as ‘hridaya’, where the front and back funnels of the heart chakra meet. This is a physical meditation that will balance self-love with love of others.

Dear Ones,

The topics of this video are cognitive dissonance during solar events, the 8th chakra bow-tie knot, and clearing the human electromagnetic field through meditation. There is an edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

Solar Wind Gust Yesterday

I did not find out about it until this morning; but yesterday there was a solar wind gust. And also, there was a solar flare, but M-class … a not too significant solar flare … probably footprinted to Earth, though, considering the location of the sunspot.

Yesterday there was a lot of astral, clair dissonance going on … just tons of it. That is characteristic of solar events. In addition, my body of Light was trembling, or vibrating, up above the head [points three inches above the head] … and at the base of the torso, as well.

The Eighth Chakra and the Superconscious Mind

And what I found, when I started meditating last night, was that, if I concentrated on that area up here [points three inches above the head] … what I call the ‘bow-tie knot’ at the eighth chakra … That is a location, I think, that Sri Aurobindo called the ‘superconscient’ telepathy center, which is what I call the ‘superconscious mind’ …

Link: “The Life Divine – Sri Aurobindo Ashram” … 
https://www.sriaurobindoashram.org/sriaurobindo/downloadpdf.php?id=36 ..

Link: “Chapter Ten: The Superconsient and the Inconscient,” in “The Collected Works of Sri Aurobindo” … http://www.collectedworksofsriaurobindo.com/index.php/readbook/24-The-Subconscient-and-the-Inconscient-Vol-28-letters-on-yoga-i ..

Gut Brain Telepathy

You know, you have the gut brain (points to lower abdomen, where the colon is], which is the lower-triangle-like telepathy center.

Chakric Telepathy

Then you have the heart chakra, which is a very good telepathy center. All the chakras are telepathy centers.

Telepathic Centers Mentioned by Sri Aurobindo

Sri Aurobindo mentioned the gut brain; the third-eye point (which is traditional); and also the superconscious mind up here above the head [points three inches above the head], as being locations where telepathy can take place … His was a short list.

. . . . .

One Symptom of Off-Kilter Eighth Chakra Is Clair Chatter

If we do not pay attention to the eighth chakra, which is extra-physical … that is to say, the first of the ‘transpersonal’ chakras; chakras that are above the physical body … If we do not pay attention to it, then vibrations up there can influence the entire electromagnetic field, and throw it off-kilter. And so it may appear to us that we are hearing clair chatter, when in fact these are just one aspect of vibrations of the entire electromagnetic field that are taking place, and these many EMF vibrations manifest as clair chatter in regions of our subtle bodies that resonate with us through clair hearing. 

Clair Chatter Is Sometimes Called Cognitive Dissonance

Clair chatter is sometimes called ‘cognitive dissonance’ … this is what Tom Kenyon called it long, long ago. ‘Cognitive dissonance’ is a very good term, I feel …

Link: “Cognitive and Emotional Challenges during Chaotic Nodes: A Hathor Planetary Message through Tom Kenyon” … http://tomkenyon.com/cognitive-and-emotional-challenges-during-chaotic-nodes ..

I call the Eighth Chakra the ‘Bow-Tie Knot’ Area, Where Our Karmic Meta-Programs Can Get Knotted Up

I call the eighth chakra the ‘bow-tie knot’ area because things can get knotted up there … karmically knotted up. It is a place where the meta-programs of the physical and subtle forms are stored.

When these programs are conscious programs, the the whole electromagnetic field smoothes. But when they are unconscious programs, then there can be quite a roiling throughout the emotional body, congruent with the noospheric influence on the electromagnetic field of a person. It almost feels like there is a ‘knobby’ commotion happening in the eighth chakra, at the bow-tie knot area, up above the head.

Simple Meditation to Unknot the ‘Bow-Tie Knot’ of the Eighth Chakra
by Alice B. Clagett
6 January 2019

One of the things that can be done so as to clarify and still the electromagnetic energy of the eighth chakra, is to sit, and to feel the roiling motion or knobby commotion there

I sit. I feel the moving-around electromagnetic energy up above my head. And I also feel where I am sitting very firmly. By keeping these two points in mind, the whole energy field clears up pretty well.

. . . . .

That is a hint for today. Love you all lots. Take care.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Ways to Sidestep Gut Brain Takeover by an Antisocial Personality . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 5 March 2019

Dear Ones,

Here are ways to sidestep gut brain takeover by an antisocial personality …

Ways to Sidestep Gut Brain Takeover by an Antisocial Personality
channeled by Alice B. Clagett
9 November 2016

Neither the occasional obsession nor the constant obsession by an antisocial personality or Dark Soul is something that one would desire to have in one’s life. The minute that one feels the energies of such a being start to permeate down through their own electromagnetic field, it is important to act. Take evasive action right away.

Technique 1: Grounding. For example: Lying down on the ground, walking in nature, meditating with your feet flat on the floor

Technique 2: Undertake a Right Brain Activity. For example: Coloring with your coloring pencils, drawing, dancing, daydreaming, breathing deeply, dream journaling, photography.

Technique 3: Visualization to Ground the Obsessing Person to His Own Physical Body. Here is one more, rather out-there technique. If you can hear the person that is trying to obsess you … if you are good with astral hearing … you can talk to them as if they were a two-year-old child. a toddler that you love. Ask them something physical: What kind of shoes do they have on? What color is their belt? Ask them if they are hungry. When was the last time that they ate? What was it that they ate? Ask them what they are doing right now. Ask them if they are too cold, or too warm. Ask them if the lights are on. Is it plenty bright where they are?

Ask them something about their physical reality, and that will bring them back from the astral plane, back into their own physical body. And then you will find that you have much less trouble with that issue of obsession by the other person.

So there are three techniques for overcoming the obsessing feral energies of the antisocial personality of Dark Soul: One is to ground yourself. The second is change the way that you think, so that you are thinking, not with your left brain, which has a tendency to trap you into logical issues, but rather with your right brain. And the third is to ground the other person, with the way that you talk to them on the astral plane.

Dear Ones,

This video is about chakric ‘glomming’ by people who feel that there is not enough love, not enough vital force; about the interaction of the negatively aspected heart of one person with the positively aspected heart of other people; AA – enabler. Guilt, sympathy, belittling. Considerations for the empath; true help, true healing comes from our celestial teams, and not from other people; and a meditation to protect the empath’s heart is included.

There is an edited Summary after the video.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY  OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

Viselike Glomming of Negatively Aspected Heart Chakras with Hearts That Are Positively Aspects

What I have noticed lately, is a phase that Earth and humankind are going through, where people whose heart chakra … not the high heart, but the middle heart chakra … is negatively aspected, those people … just through a quality of their electromagnetics … are ‘glomming’ onto my heart. And there is an electromagnetic attraction that stops the action of my energetic heart, because their heart energy is reversely attracted to mine, and everything kind of grinds to a halt.

And the clairaudient chatter that I hear is that these people, in their minds, feel that they have not enough love, and not enough vital force and energy; and that they feel inevitably drawn to my heart chakra, to try to get the love that they need.

And now, I have looked at this in several different ways. And one is just this electromagnetic feature that we have been talking about, where the energy of their heart is slightly negative, and the energy of a heart that is freely open does not have a charge. And the energy of their heart is therefore attracted … like a magnet is attracted to nonreactive steel.

An Attitude That Our Heart Will Never Get Enough Love

And so, this can cause fear in the heart of the person who is besieged by the hearts of … how did Krishna Das say it? …

Link: “My Foolish Heart / Bhaja Govinda ~ Heart As Wide As The World – Krishna Das,” by Krishna Das Music, 27 January 2010, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWcSTABEiRA ..

… “My foolish heart, when will you learn?” … and so, when we have that attitude, that our hearts will never get enough love, and are incapable of being loved, then we are drawn outside of our own magnificent Souls, to try to find the object of our desire elsewhere.

Our Own Hearts Are Where We Will Find Love

And of course, that will never be satisfactory for us; the Source of the Spark of Divine is within us. That is where we find all that we need. That is where we find all that we are. The Truth of what we are is within our own Heart. There God dwells in us. There grace lies in us.

So we have to bring ourselves back to our own hearts, and feel, in our hearts, positive emotions such as gratitude and appreciation, with small things that we encounter all day long. We can keep our hearts open in that way. And when our heart chakra is open, and flowing freely, we do not feel the need to find things outside ourselves to satisfy us. We are content within ourselves.

Then we can stand steadily in a path, with Christ’s compassion. That is the goal.

On Relaxing the Muscles of the Chest and Heart, So That the Heart May Feel More Open

And in the meantime, what I am noticing is that it does not take a lot, for me to be reacting with other people, or feeling a sensation in my body that causes my heart chakra to close up a little bit.

So now, what I am concentrating on, as I walk and when I am with people, is relaxing my chest muscles, and relaxing my heart, when I feel my heart tightening up because of some external stimulus. So that way I can be sure that my heart is always open.

Quick Meditation to Help Protect Against Psychic Heart Attack
by Alice B. Clagett
18 February 2015

If  you feel you may just have had a transient ischemic attack (a TIA) or a heart attack, go to your nearest Hospital Emergency Room right away.

If the feeling is psychic rather than physical, then sit quietly, relax your pectoral muscles (your chest muscles), and calm yourself with gentle, quiet breathing. Take care not to breathe in such a way as to place stress on your heart.

Link: “Protecting the Empath’s Heart,” by Alice B. Clagett, filmed on 18 February 2015 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-5S0 ..

. . . . .

The ‘Love Addict’ and the ‘Enabler’

Now I want to talk a little more about people who feel that attraction to other people … like: There is not enough love, and I have to get love from other people! … those kinds of feelings that we have sometimes. I think it is a little like … You know that club called ‘Alcoholics Anonymous’? … It is like an addiction, like a way of thought that we cannot break free of.

It is a mental habit, to think that we do not have enough love within us. And so, what happens, when we keep cycling this secret current of thought through our deep subconscious mind, is that we are constantly trying to find people, in our lives … like Alcoholics Anonymous talks about ‘enablers’.

These are people who will allow us to perpetuate this habit that is really insufficient to the truth of the situation.

So ‘enablers’, what they do is they say: Oh my gosh, you poor thing! Let me help you! … You know?

Instead of saying: You, and all human beings, have the free will to become who they truly are; and to realize the majesty of their Souls!

Instead, we validate the chains on somebody else. We validate the fact that they have a habit … a subconscious habit. So then we find ourselves constantly drawn into their lives, to fix things for them: To give them money; to give them praise; to give them love …

And because of their own lack of clearing in the heart chakra, some little snag in there makes them always respond to love … whether a clairaudient, loving feeling, or whether in the physical presence of that person … in such a way that they will be trying to shut down the enabler’s heart chakra; constantly trying to belittle them; constantly trying to make their self-esteem suffer.

I think that the reason for this is that, when the enabler’s heart chakra is shut down, it is more like the ‘love addict’s’ heart chakra is. And so they feel more at home with a person whose heart is not functioning well. You know?

For the Empath: On Keeping the Heart Well Centered Within Ourselves in the Presence of a ‘Love Addict’

So we as empathetic people … when we are in the presence of a person with that kind of mental habit, the view of the insufficiency of love … we have to keep our hearts always open, but centered well within ourselves. You know?

Let us see … I think there were one or two other things to do with that. Let me think for a moment …

Alice’s Vision of the Shutting Down of the Body of Light During the Long Age of Darkness

So the thing is, from a multidimensional perspective, whatever we see as a distortion of the emotional body of someone else, is likely to be just an indication of a distortion of the emotional body of everybody on Earth; not exactly the same distortion, but perhaps very extensive distortions in everyone here, due to the density of matter.

As we are rising through this process, we are able to hold, in our Bodies of Light, and in our emotional bodies, and in our DNA, more depth of Light … So that the kinds of information that had been left out … simply because there was no room in our mental-emotional-spiritual complex, to place that information, when we descended into the third dimension … That kind of information insufficiency is now being eliminated by the downloads of Light that we are receiving from the Central Galaxy.

The Shift: Our Renewed Ability to Communicate with Our Expressions of Self in All of Our Dimensions

Since near the end of 2012, we have started to receive more and more Light. So, steadily, and naturally, our emotional bodies, and our Bodies of Light, will be returning to a state of fullness.

But they are doing so, in conjunction with changes that are taking place in all of our dimensions. And we have Expressions of Self in all of our dimensions.

Yet, most of us are unable, so far, to communicate with those Expressions. On the other hand, those Expressions are more than capable of communicating with us. So, we have to have the sense of Mind … the perspective of Multidimensional Self … to call upon Expressions of Self that are in other dimensions.

Now, you can call this your Celestial Ascension Team … If you are an Advaita kind of person, it will make sense, that you are just talking to your Higher Selves. You know? And they … because of their better understanding of the total situation … are able to coordinate and speed up our ascension into a greater understanding and clarity.

Alice’s Vision: Succor in the Long Age of Darkness: Other Human Beings … and in the New Age of Light: Our Ascension Teams and Our Higher Expressions of Self

So now, to go back to these people that are unflinchingly holding onto other people: These people do not understand there was a time … 150,000 years, some say … during which there was no succor … there was no other help for us, than to depend upon each other. And that was not a huge help, because of the Soul wounding we had all experienced.

So it was more like the comfort of knowing that some other being was there, than actually being able to receive help from other people … because we were all deficient in programming, because of the density. And we still are.

So, relationships that are formed in this density, are necessarily lacking in the ecstatic joy that we will experience in our relationships in 5D … in the Fifth Dimension.

And that is something that we have to realize has changed: We can now relate to our Celestial Ascension Teams. We can now relate to our Higher Expressions of Self.

And that is where the help lies. The help does not lie in other people, right now.

False Notions That We Are Separate, of Not Having Enough Love, of Maintaining a Vise Grip on the Hearts and Energy Fields of Other People, and of Mind Controlling Large Numbers of People

So, for those that have not realized that yet; that are still, quite naturally, holding onto other people: We need to let them go. The more separate, and the more alone they feel, the more they will feel impelled to look for help where help truly is.

That is my thought about this. There is a lot more to be discovered about this; I am certain of that, because it seems so all-pervasive … This aspect of not having enough love, and feeling separate, and trying to heal that perception by holding other people in kind of a vise grip, and draining other people’s energy … This notion that we have to get energy and vital force from other people.

And the notion that we can control large numbers of people with our minds: That is purely antithetical to the laws of Earth regarding Free Will and Love. So it is just a misunderstanding that has happened, because of the density here.

Now, here is something that I found out just today … [Shows mountains.] … See the mountains? I was walking in the mountains. Pretty cool! And I sat down on my favorite rock, to meditate. And I began to feel that my heart was closing up.

And lately, whenever my heart starts to open, I feel something like ‘thorns’ tearing at my heart, and pulling it closed again. It hurts a little, actually!

And so I tried taking a few fingertips of one hand … [Shows middle three fingers of right hand, held together] … and placing the fingertips, lightly, right there on my heart chakra … [See “Meditation to Open Up the Heart Chakra” near the end of this blog.]

What I felt when I did that: First I heard, clairvoyantly, some people … a man, a woman, and some other people … say: She was right here with me, and now she is gone. Where is she, anyway?

And then I heard a little child saying: There is all the love you will ever need, right here!

And I could feel the electromagnetics of my heart changing: The kind of a ‘claw’ feeling went away. And it was like a relief to my heart: A relaxation and a joy came in.

So I would like to suggest trying this mudra out: Place three fingertips of your hand, held one above the other, vertically, and lightly, on your heart chakra, in the center of your chest while meditating … and then see how the energetics change …

Meditation to Open Up the Heart Chakra
by Alice B. Clagett
18 February 2015

If you feel your heart chakra begin to tighten up or close down, and if you feel you may just have had a transient ischemic attack (a TIA) or a heart attack, go to your nearest Hospital Emergency Room right away.

If you are certain the feeling is psychic rather than physical, then place the first three fingers of your right hand lightly on the heart, as shown in the below series of three photos. Then sit quietly for a minute or so, and feel what changes come about in your energy fields.

Conclusion

I think there is going to be quite a bit more on this topic, either from me, or from other channels.

I will leave it right there, right now.

I will wish you well, with your heart explorations.

And I will sign off. Love you all lots! Take care.

ANCHORING LIGHT BY OFFERING TO HEAL THE WORLD

I had a healing from lightworker Jeffrey Allen … www.iamjeffreyallen.com … recently. He mentioned something I sort of knew, but he said it in such a way that it really sparked my interest. It was about Light work and healing work in the world today.

Jeffrey Allen said that the best way to heal and anchor Light is to fill our own personal vessels with Divine Light, so much so that the overflow of Light from our personal vessel is what we offer as healing for the world. I visualize it like this:

Here are your friends!

KEEPING YOUR HOME SAFE

Lots of folks feel unsafe during times of chaos such as that we’re now experiencing. Shelter, like good food and good medical care, is a primary concern. So I thought of a way to make my home feel safe and full of Divine love. It’s a visualization … a variation on the Overflowing Beaker theme:

Imagine that your home is a bowl of Divine love, overflowing with abundance. The love bubbles up over the roof of your home, out over the homes in your neighborhood, greeting each passer-by with a blessing of Light …

Dear Ones,

THE BENEFITS OF DEVELOPING AND BALANCING THE HEART CHAKRA

This blog describes a series of steps to help us develop and balance the heart chakra. The result will be neutral mind, compassion, empathy, and plugging into the Infinite as a wellspring of vitality, health, and longevity.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND SELF-SACRIFICE

Unconditional love is not, as many believe, self-sacrifice. Rather, it is a chance to be all we truly are, to allow our heart energy field to expand so that it encompasses all the other chakras.

In this way, we permanently rise above the machinations of Team Dark. Or to put it another way, we are able to feel our being in a way that is unconstricted by the divisions (autonomic / voluntary, and so on) of our neural net. We begin to experience unity or oneness … the unity field.

WHAT THE HEART CHAKRA LOOKS LIKE: TWO CONJOINED FUNNELS

The energy of the heart chakra flows out in two whirling cones of energy, shaped like funnels. The tips of the funnels touch deep in the chest, at a spot between the nipples but located next to the backbone.

The Hridaya: The Deep Inner Heart

This spot is the deep inner heart, where a ‘zero point’ or black hole connects us with the realm of infinite possibilities. It is this spot on which you will concentrate after the front and back cones are brought to Awareness and cleansed of Soul wounding. This hidden inner heart is where we feel unconditional love.

A DEPICTION OF THE DOUBLE CONES OF THE CHAKRAS

This image gives a good idea of the conformation of the body energy discussed in this blog. It depicts double cones for all the chakras …

Image: Double-funnel chakras of the human energy field …  https://i0.wp.com/www.canalwoman.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/chakrasdrawing.jpg?resize=400%2C354 ..

The Kundalini

The lower, red funnel (at the rectum) and the upper, violet funnel (at the top of the head) are actually one long funnel; the connecting cord is the kundalini energy. It is along the line of the kundalini … where the kundalini intersects the junction of the cones of the heart chakra … that the hridaya, the deep inner heart, is located.

The Heart Chakra

The heart chakra is depicted in green … In the above-mentioned image, you can see the two green funnels, meeting at the center line of the body. Or slightly behind the point depicted, a little more toward the backbone.

Chakras, Pre-Ascension and Post-Ascension

This picture of the chakras is the pre-Ascension scheme. After Ascension there are 5 or so additional chakras.

FRONT CONE OF THE HEART CHAKRA: COMPASSION AND EMPATHY

Many Lightworkers are adept at feeling the front cone of the heart chakra. This feeling allows them to develop empathy with all living beings.

This energy of the front cone of the heart is the energy through which we relate to other human beings. It is not necessarily corded energy, as with a family member or friend, but sometimes it expresses itself in that way.

Energetic Movement of the Front Cone of the Heart Chakra

Here is an image that, to me, depicts the energetic motion of the front cone of the heart chakra, only laid on its side …

Image: Drop of water falling into a green body of water and down into the water, with ripples on the surface of the water … http://www.deniselinn.com/graphics/Chakra-Portal-4.jpg ..

I like the ripple effect, which reminds me of how the heart chakra energy ripples outward in ever widening circles through a person’s own energy field. The descending droplet of water in the image reminds me of divine Awareness, incoming through the deep inner heart, and outgoing into the phenomenal world through the front cone of a person’s heart chakra.

To Open and Vivify the Front Cone of the Heart

Arching the Back and Expanding the Chest While Standing. Stand up.  Arch the back backwards, expanding the chest. Arms can be up, above the head, for extra arching effect. Or hands can be on hips, for less of an arch. Or arms can be low and pushed back, as in this image …

Image: Taoist Arch: Standing up and arching the back, arms back … http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/5141/3105/1600/taoist.jpg ..

Camel Pose. This pose is a little more difficult: In a kneeling position, grasp the ankles. Let the trunk of the body rise upward and outward. Let the head fall back, as you arch the back backwards and expand the chest outward …

Image: “File:Ustrasana – Camel Pose.jpg,” in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ustrasana_-_Camel_Pose.jpg ..

Placing Awareness on the Front Cone of the Heart. Here are the steps to develop daily Awareness of the front cone of the heart …

FEEL your heart energy in the middle of the front of your chest. As you go about your day, feel the distortions in the smooth conical whirl of heart energy. OR feel the little pains or stiffness or heavinesses in your heart … whatever it feels like … from moment to moment.

NOTICE how other people’s heart energy feels to you. If you cannot feel their heart energy, just imagine that you can. Make a game of it. Both ways are equally effective.

NOTICE how the energy of the front cone of your heart reacts to the dimples … twists … heaviness of other people’s hearts. Or if you cannot feel their hearts, notice how your heart energy changes in the presence of other people. Either way is fine.

NOTICE how your heart springs back from its momentary distortions … how it returns to its native smooth conical configuration in the middle of your chest.

IF BODILY SENSATIONS distant from the heart assert themselves, place your Awareness on those sensations. When they subside, bring your attention back to your heart.

BACK CONE OF THE HEART CHAKRA: THE INFINITE WELL OF VITALITY, HEALTH AND LONGEVITY

The back cone of the heart chakra allows us to relate to the Infinite well of vitality, health and longevity. Very few people consciously practice Awareness of this back cone of the heart, yet there are compelling reasons to do so …

Reasons for Developing This Energy

Preventing Lightworker Burnout. The back cone of the heart must be enlivened and brought to Awareness in order to prevent Lightworker empathic burnout.

Overcoming a Codependent Behavior Pattern. Its vivification also prevents codependency … the energy of accommodation to a person who is an addict.

Escaping from the Snares of an Antisocial Personality, who relies on receiving love from other people while at the same time withholding his own energy of love from others. Energetic attachment to an antisocial personality cannot be escaped unless the energy of the back funnel of the heart is as strong as that of the front funnel of the heart. Yet the action of predation by an antisocial personality creates a feeling that there is ‘no one to watch my back’; this feeling further weakens the back of the heart. Thus it is doubly important to strengthen the energy of the back of the heart when attachment to the energy of an antisocial personality occurs.

Energetic Balance of the Entire Heart. In energetic terms, developing this energy of the back heart funnel allows us to balance and vivify the entire heart chakra.

To Locate the Back Cone of the Heart Chakra

Place Your Awareness on the Area Between the Shoulder Blades. According to “The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of International Medicine,” written over 4,000 years ago, wind and cold enter the pores of the skin through acupressure points located here.

Image: Line drawing of a person’s back, showing two double sets of acupressure points (each consisting of 2 points on either side of the spine), starting just below the neck and ending mid-shoulder blade. The legend of the image states: “Relieves upper back tension, difficult breathing, insomnia, hypertension, trauma, and emotional pain” … http://www.acupressure.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/upper-back-pts1.gif ..

The lowest set of 4 points in the image is the most important for vivifying the back cone of the heart chakra. But the area on which you will be placing your Awareness includes the place between the lower part of your shoulder blades as well, and around the ‘wing tips’ of the shoulder blade. All this area is involved in the back funnel of the heart.

To Open and Vivify the Back Cone of the Heart Chakra

Here is how to open and vivify the back cone of the chakra …

Go for a Back Massage. Lie face down, hands with palms flat on the mat next to your shoulders. Ask the person giving the massage to concentrate on the area between and around the edges of your shoulder blades.

Use a Wooden Spinal Massage Roller, gently, to loosen up the muscles between your shoulder blades. 

Swinging a Bat. Here is an ancient Indian practice to ‘unstick’ this area: While standing, swing a thick branch or club gently back and forth. Or you can use a baseball bat.

Yoga Mudra. Or, you can open up the energy flow in this area with yoga mudra: Sit on your heels, grasping your hands behind the back. Bring the forehead to the floor and stretch the clasped hands up to the ceiling. Hold this position with long, deep breathing for at least 3 minutes. 

Here is an image of a gentler modification of this technique …

Image: Yoga Mudra: A man is sitting cross-legged on the floor, but it would be all right to sit on a stool instead. Fingers are interlaced behind his back. He is gently bending his chest down toward the floor … http://www.pinklotus.org/KYscanned/asanas%20Yoga%20Mudra%20asana.jpg ..

Place Awareness on the Back Cone of the Heart. After you practice the technique of your choice, feel the energy of the back cone of your heart. Notice how it closes down and opens up.

Practice Allowing the Back Cone of the Heart to Relax. If the energy of the back cone of the heart contracts, allow it to return to its native, smoothly flowing conical state.

ON OPENING THE ENTIRE HEART CHAKRA

Cat Cow Pose

On all fours, arch the spine up and down, gently. When the spine is arched up, the head tucked in. When the spine is arched down, the head is arched back …

Image: Cat Cow Pose … http://workouttrends.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Yoga-Poses-Cat-cow-Back-Stretch-Pose.jpg ..

On the downward arch, the front funnel of the heart chakra is vivified. On the upward arch, the back funnel of the heart chakra is vivified.

Lotus Mudra (Padma Mudra)

Here is a finger position to open the heart chakra …

Meditation on the Hridaya
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
4 December 2013

Pose. Sit on a chair, feet flat on the ground, back straight but relaxed, hands palm down on your legs, chin ever so slightly tucked in.

Breathing. Make your breathing as long and deep as is comfortable for you.

Roving Gaze, Horizontal or Higher. Let your eyes be open and either horizontal or higher. Do not look down, and do not concentrate on any one point. One-pointed concentration, as advocated in many yoga texts, allows a person to escape from the body, into the higher realms. This is a nice ‘preview of coming attractions,’ but it is a bit of a sidetrack too. What we want is to bring heaven down to Earth. Right down into our physical being. So, let the eyes rove where they will, as long as you’re looking at the horizon or higher.

Where to Place Awareness. Place the Awareness at a point in your body between the nipples, but deep within the body, just in front of the spinal column. This is the point where we can feel unconditional love. Continue for 3 minutes.

Benefits. When you are accustomed to this deep inner heart meditation, you can begin to use it whenever you find yourself too drawn into the events of the day. It will balance and neutralize the karma that is playing out before your eyes. It will allow you to go beyond the causal body, and to become aware of your body of Light.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
