Find a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed. A sacred space where you feel calm and peaceful. You may wish to light a candle. Perhaps use some incense.
Sit or lie in a comfortable position. Spine straight, arms and legs uncrossed. Intent to breathe through your heart. Take a few long, slow, deep breaths. In through the nose. Out through the mouth. Slowly deepen and lengthen your breath. Allow your body to soften and relax ♥♥♥
Now, let your body breathe for you. It knows just what to do.
From your heart connect to that which for you is the Source of all Unconditional Love. Also from the heart ground yourself solidly to the core of the Earth with strong, solid, sturdy roots.
Imagine now that you have shape shifted into a ‘mini me’. You are inside your own body, standing in front of your Other Heart. It’s located in the centre of the chest, close to where your physical heart lies.
You enter the Other Heart through a small door. It opens softly and easily. You step inside. Looking around, you notice that a softly glowing, pulsating pink light beckons you to go deeper within ♥♥♥
Once there you find a comfortable, cosy chair that is waiting just for you to sit in it. Settling down you find yourself embraced in its soft, all-encompassing warmth. A deep sense of peace and calm settles over you. Immerse yourself in the feeling ♥♥♥
Cocooned in this space, you breathe deeply, allowing the sensations to flow into every cell of your Being – Mind, Body and Soul ♥♥♥
Bathing yourself as if in a shower, flow the energies in and around your Self until you are fully saturated and over-flowing. Do this for as long as you intuitively feel is right for you ♥♥♥
Next, ask your Self what colour/s your Heart most desires at this time in your life. You will receive the information in whatever way is right for you – as an inner knowing, seeing the colour, hearing the word/s ♥♥♥
Once you have received the information add the colour/s into your breath with the intent that it become part of your breath for the next 24 hours and that it cleanses all negativity, transmuting it to Light. Thus the vibrational energy of your breath will support and nurture your wellbeing ♥♥♥
Open your Heart to breathe in the attributes and qualities that are a quintessential part of it.
Do this slowly, with intent, breathing in each one until your Heart is filled. For each step give yourself as much time as you intuitively feel is right for you.
Unconditional Love ♥♥♥
Allow these energies to settle and embed into your Heart ♥♥♥
Next, expand your Heart so it fully embraces your physical heart. As before, take as long as you intuitively feel is right for each step of this process ♥♥♥
Expand it slowly step by step until your Heart fully embraces your whole physical body ♥♥♥
Expand it to embrace your Mind ♥♥♥
Expand it to embrace your Soul ♥♥♥
In front of you is another mini me. Through your expanded Heart’s Soul Eyes gaze deeply into the eyes of the other mini me ♥♥♥
Reach out and hold hands with Your Self ♥♥♥
With your expanded Heart smile at the other mini me ♥♥♥
Greet yourself by name ♥♥♥
With your expanded Heart open wide say “I love you!” to your Self ♥♥♥
Add your name ♥♥♥
Say it again ♥♥♥
And again ♥♥♥
Keep on saying it until you know for certain that you really, truly believe it ♥♥♥
Then invite the other mini me to merge with you – until you become One ♥♥♥
Stay in this space for as long as you feel is right. When you are ready to leave, give thanks for the time and experience. Know that you can return there any time you wish ♥♥♥
Slowly and gently bring your attention back to your physical body. Feel the surface on which you are resting. Feel the weight of your body. Your limbs. Hear the sounds of the space in which you rest. Return back to the here and now, opening your eyes and wriggling your fingers and toes. Welcome back!
