Learn to express your natural radiance inside and out!

To learn more about Advanced Meditation generally, go here. I have been practicing and teaching this unique form of healing and awakening for over fifty years. And for an introduction to Chakras (Energy Centers in your body) go here.

It's vital to focus on healing your chakras by gradually awakening them rather than focusing on opening chakras, which can have detrimental effects.

I've worked with numerous people who have made the mistake of opening chakras only to be in physical or psychological pain.

Some people I've worked with read about opening chakras from a book or the internet and ended up with severe pain in their body. One person I worked with tried kundalini meditation on his own while using psychedelics and ended up in a mental ward. I helped these clients gradually get grounded again, and reverse the damage to their nervous system by using Advanced Meditation techniques. To heal your heart chakra blockage try the meditation below.

To learn more about the importance of awakening your centers/chakras rather than trying to open them, go to Opening Chakras, Be Careful!.

Please know that working with Inner Light-Fire is powerful, transformational work and should be carefully undertaken, preferably with the supervision of a qualified teacher. A teacher specifically trained in Inner Light-Fire techniques can help you experience the techniques more powerfully and directly so you move from "concepts about" to direct experience. 

Many people try to do too much too soon (such as work with several energy centers at once) and end up just creating mental concepts rather than having a genuine experience. We can quickly move out of the present moment experience of the senses and get caught up in mental thoughts, just the opposite of true meditation.

This work is powerful and small doses of it can have profound effects on your consciousness!

Advanced Meditation doesn't require previous meditation experience. One of the things that makes it advanced is that it combines an internal focus of awareness with the Inner Light within us. This unique combination accelerates our healing and awakening. As we become proficient with it we clear out those mental concepts that clutter our minds.

So now slow down, breathe, and settle into your body and senses. Our focus is heart chakra healing.

Your own experience is the best guide for whether this is useful. And the best time to experience is always now. Let's go:

Healing Your Heart Chakra Blockage Meditation

Star Above Virgin Mary La Jolla Church

Allow 20-30 minutes for this meditation. This meditation can help transform your chakra blockage, releasing your past so that you can be more fully loving in the present moment.

Find a comfortable place to sit where you won’t be disturbed or distracted. Let your body open and relax, with your feet on the floor below you. Breathe comfortably for a few moments to allow yourself to settle in and your brain to come to the present.

Be aware of your surroundings and the sensations in your body. If you start to space out during the meditation, just open your eyes and connect again to your body sensations and environment. Awareness of sensations will keep you grounded.

Take your time. Let your experience of the moment deepen.

Focus your awareness at the center of the top of your head. From here, bring your awareness to a point 6 inches directly above the center of the top of your head. My meditation teacher called this place the Upper Room. It is an energy chakra where you can more easily get in touch with the presence of your true nature, with "Presence."

Here you can connect with the peace, clarity and power of your true nature, your deepest Self.

As you focus here, ask Presence to bring into form a brilliant point of clear white Light. Gradually, let the Light grow in power and size, gradually becoming a diamond-like clear-white Star 3 inches in diameter.

Let your brain relax and open, rather than trying to create or visualize it. Be easy, open, relaxed. Just let the Light shine…if you don’t see it optically, just sense it. The Star is not a creation of your brain, but of Presence.)

Now think of the Star opening, and experience liquid-like inner Light pouring downward, into your body. Experience this pure stream of Light move in through the top of your head, cleansing your whole body, and flow out the soles of your feet into the earth.

Experience this for a few minutes, cleansing your body and mind. 

Let the Light-Fire flow through all your body systems, your muscles, nerves, bones, vital organs, skin.

Gradually experience your vibratory rate lifting as you are cleansed. Open to your inner spaciousness as you absorb Light into all your tissues.

Take your time.

Now think of the downpour of Light stopping and instantly it does so.

Move into your Star with your awareness. It can be your very own “Star Ship.” Move with awareness and your Star in a small arch, forward and down to the level of mid-chest. Bring the Star straight in to your Heart Chakra, in the center of your chest, in the center of your body.

Magnify Presence here to help center your Star in the perfect position. Now think of your Star moving into its Inner-Fire mode. Intensify this Inner-Fire action to cleanse your Heart Chakra of whatever is ready to be cleared out. Let the Light-Fire transform any heart chakra blockages.

It may get pretty hot! (The fire will only consume that which is harmful but sometimes we are identified with old perspectives and feelings that need to go so it can be briefly uncomfortable as we learn to let go.)

Blaze up your Star to burn away old emotional pain. Allow a few minutes here for healing your Heart Chakra. Think of connecting as "Beings of Light" with people from your past who you have experienced emotional pain or hurt or who you may have hurt. Try not to get caught up in the  story or memories...just focus on the Light-Fire.

Let the fires work throughout your heart chakra, purifying and awakening it. Amplify your union as Beings of Light with all involved.

When it feels like the work is done, let the Inner-Fire subside, and gather in  pure Light from your Star into your Heart Chakra. With the Heart Chakra blockages released, let it fill with Light, lifting its vibratory rate higher and higher. What does that feel like?

Now, think of the Light of your Star and of your Heart Chakra pouring outward. Experience as this healing Light energy flows through your body lifting all your body systems up. Let the Light flow out through the energy field surrounding your body. Let the Inner Light flow out into the world and all your relationships. Let your heart Love shine into your whole body and outward into all your relations and into the world.

Experience this power of Light and Love throughout your creation. Open up and enjoy it.

Take the time to let your whole being soak up the Light and experience what it is like to have cleansed your Heart Center.

Ending The Healing Your Heart Chakra Meditation

At this point you can either let the Star stay here so it supports your heart and Heart Chakra, or you can bring the Star back to its home in the Upper Room. (If you forget, it naturally goes back there on its own.) 

I would appreciate hearing about your experience and any questions you might have—email me using the form below. 

You may want to practice this Healing Your Heart Chakra meditation a few times this week to find out its benefits. As my teacher, Russell Paul Schofield, said, “The light doesn’t work for you but with you.” If you work with it, you will see immediate and long-lasting benefits.

Remember, let your experience be a guide. Heart Chakra healing can take awhile because we all have a long emotional history. Your heart chakra blockage, as it is transformed becomes the fuel for your heart chakra to shine as never before!

The Inner Light-Fire reveals past buried pain, even from childhood. But these become buried treasures for you to find, treasures of healing energy, insight, and pure loving.

I want to emphasize again the value of working with a qualified teacher. Please contact me about next steps if you are interested, and explore the other pages of Advanced Meditation.
