The Tibetan Master Djwhal Khul, (Coauthor of the A. Bailey Books) wrote in the 1930’s that the earth would soon be going through her initiation to open her heart and much of mankind is also reaching toward that initiatory phase as well. I find this idea being reflected in many articles and areas of our lives, right now.
Gregg Braden talked about our heart being an indicator of our health and well being. He found that people having heart problems often talk about the struggles and “burdens” they carry throughout their lives. He questioned if those unresolved issues are what puts the stress on our heart and ultimately causes death from that “heavy heart”; it is all just too much.
Khul also talks about the usual “broken heart” as actually being a solar plexus issue. In TELEPATHY he says: ”The usual broken heart is literally a disrupted solar plexus center, bringing complete demolition of “the center of feeling in the body”, and consequently the wrecking of the nervous system. It is really brought about by a failure to handle conditions as a soul.”
What happens in our body when tragedy strikes? Do we feel a tightening in the chest? Nausea? Dizziness? Heart palpitations? Emotionally — Angry? Blaming? Victim? If unprepared and unexpected we can be in shock, disconnect and be out of our body and away from the pain of life and living. Do we stuff it? Reject it? Strike out?
It seems important to look at how we have handled events in our past—childhood and adult times. How do we feel when we think of the event now? Is it as vivid as when the event happened? If so, we have told ourselves it was horrible, I’ll never forget… It was so bad, I must remember it always. Sounds pretty stuck and painful. If we get enough of those experiences it can color our whole being and our view of ourselves, others, and the world in general can be seen as a “bad and scary place”. You can imagine how we might hurt then get angry and resentful. The energy of the event(s) plummets our energy field even further if buried and not contemplated deeply. David Hawkins scale from 1 to 1000 shows that emotional cascade from the negative emotion of shame 20, guilt 30, apathy 50, grief 75, fear 100, desire 125, anger 150, pride 175, courage 200, neutrality 250. It is not until we begin to be open to whatever is in our lives and “willing” to assess a situation 310, acceptance 350—Hawkins says only at these levels are we moving forward and not being a negative influence to ourselves and the world around us. Of course, Hawkins continues his scale up to enlightenment—oneness.
Recently Massage Magazine has run some articles on heart centered therapy and HeartMath research on the power of the heart to be a center of producing a field of attraction greater than the brain, to send more information to the brain than the brain sends to it, and to perceive things even before the eye sees and the brain perceives. Most of the body focus of these articles was about getting circulation going from diaphragm movement, muscle contraction, lymph action — making the heart work effortlessly. Breathing to get emotional energy moving.
Getting things moving, circulating — bodily —emotionally — mentally — spiritually.
What if it is time to do a heart review? Are some memories being triggered by family or world events? How tightly are we holding on to the drama? Can we see a bigger picture? Can we place the event in the “cycle” or our life? Can we, perhaps, even find the gift, the bitter-sweetness of it all?
Djwhal Khul also says in TELEPATHY “Only from the heart centre can stream, in reality, those lines of energy that link and bind (us) together”.
What if our heart field could be flung open by stretching open our arms as wide as possible to welcome whatever life has to offer us! We’re all in this together.
