We start off with open hearts in childhood until we suffer major disappointments, breaches of trust and lack of care or love especially from those we rely on. After securing the energy of the heart behind walls, people move up into their head where its safer to filter the world.
Many people never move out of their head space again, preferring instead to rationalize, analyze and otherwise process reality logically. They build a mansion called their ‘philosophy on life’ and never leave this rich home again to FEEL. But by letting go and releasing the barriers around the heart, heart energy is allowed to expand. This causes a higher vibrational state of being to immediately follow.
Your heart space is the governor of all energy- it is the core that is connected with all the dimensions of self. When you operate from heart energy, you are connected to all dimensions of life. But when you operate from the head, you are cut off and suffer from having only one-sided awareness. This awareness is often limited to a perspective through the Ego, that only exists in the 3rd dimension, living in a lower vibrational state of fear / mistrust.
The Ego thrives in the 3rd dimension and loves to hijack the logical mind for the purpose of advancing itself. It loves to confuse, distract and control. It sees heart energy as a rival for power and a possible source of its own destruction.
But awareness like energy is infinitely deep and exists in more than one dimension. To live from a clear heart (as well as an open mind), takes into account many aspects of reality at once, offering instant clarity on many issues, along with a deeper sense of knowing and being guided.
How do you clear the heart? Step into the pain and sadness without resistance and ask for the maximum intensity you can possibly find there, eventually the intensity burns out and a clear heart remains (often after many tears). But there are different kinds of tears- tears of release that must flow through your physiological nervous system often in the form of crying.
How does this process happen so fast, especially if you have been holding onto something for years? Because instead of living in fear and being dictated by pain, you take 100% control of the process. You can hang onto a rock for 10 years, but it takes only a second to let it go.
Living with a clear and open heart must make you vulnerable right? While you might avoid heart pain from behind a well armored wall of Ego, you also avoid feeling. After the Ego armor is removed, the heart is still protected but by a higher awareness and a permeable layer of heart energy protection where heart energy can still flow. This is different from fear based Ego armor that reacts to potential threats with a variety of disturbing or destructive patterns: anger, retaliation, evasion, denial, distraction, etc,
Is it easier to be taken advantage of living from the heart? Actually no, a person that is truly living from the heart is also processing energy and information at higher frequency, so they are more sensitive and ‘in tune’ with the reality around them. Less likely to be taken advantage of.
As the barriers and blockages to the heart are stripped away what happens next is nothing short of miraculous. Heart energy expands and makes contact with other heart energy. Awareness moves outside of the body and makes contact with other awareness.. A one heart / one mind web of connections begins to form and we get a glimpse of what oneness truly means. Its not just a cute idea we get to entertain inside the safety of an individual identity, its a REAL idea we get to practice by clearing our hearts, moving into the heart space and making connections with other heart spaces.
