“The human heart has a way of making itself large again even after it’s been broken into a million pieces.”
~ Robert James Waller, The Bridges of Madison County
No-one is immune to heartache, loneliness or troubled relationships. Human hearts were made to love, but in loving – or having no-one to love – our heart can get bent out of shape, cracked or even broken.
The Japanese have a practice called Kintsugi. They take broken pottery and mend it with amalgam infused with gold dust so that the repair work is obvious. The restored pottery is considered to have great value because of the fact that the object has suffered damage and has then been restored so that the flaws and damage are shown rather than hidden. It becomes a thing of beauty.
This reminded me of the human heart, and Rumi’s beautiful quote:
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
Today I’ve recorded a guided meditation that focuses on heart healing. It takes sixteen minutes, but I would suggest allowing extra time at the end for you to integrate the energy of the meditation.
All you need to do is find a spot to sit or lie quietly, and then follow along to the sound of my voice. Feel free to hold a crystal of your choice if that feels right for you.

Nicole Cody’s Guided Meditation for Heart Healing
You are beautiful, worthy and lovable just as you are.
You can heal, and you can know love. Love is your pure nature. It is what we have come from and the energy to which we will return.
