Guided Meditation to Heal Heartache

“The human heart has a way of making itself large again even after it’s been broken into a million pieces.” 
~ Robert James Waller

“What happens when people open their hearts?”
“They get better.” 
~ Haruki Murakami

The energies of this week are all about forgiveness and opening our hearts, and throughout December they support joyful connection, gratitude and time spent on important relationships.

But what do you do when your heart is hurting? When you want to open up your heart but it’s bruised and battered and your faith in love and life is in tatters? Or when your heart is grieving the loss of loved ones, or time past?

I have a little guided meditation that might help. It’s one I recorded a while ago, but it’s perfect for the energies right now. 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.

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.

Holding space for you to move back into an energy of flow, peace and light,

Working with the energy of forgiveness

“Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.”
Suzanne Somers

Negative emotions can disrupt the flow of your heart chakra just as easily as boulders in a stream. How many boulders have piled up in your heart over time? Each boulder represents a major hurt, a major resentment, a major betrayal or disappointment, a deep wounding, shame or grief.

When the flow is disturbed or slowed, stagnation happens. Stagnant heart flow breeds anger and resentment, depression and self-loathing.  It muddies the clear waters of the heart, and that dirty water spills over into everything you do.

So how do we get those boulders out?

Forgiveness.

Forgiveness of others.  Forgiveness of self.

Forgiveness is the gift that sets us free. It’s not about condoning or approving what has been done, it’s about releasing yourself from the pain and the hurt of the past, and allowing yourself to move from stuckness back into flow.

Meditation on forgiveness:

Here’s a link to a simple guided meditation on forgiveness that can help open and clear your heart chakra:

Nicole Cody’s Guided Meditation on Forgiveness

Journalling:

Allow yourself to feel sorry for yourself for a bit.  Just a little bit.

 

 

Or a big bit if that’s what you need.  In that space of reconnecting into misery, start writing, beginning with the words, “If only that had never happened I would have been able to…”

Get it out.  There’s no point keeping it all bottled up.  All this stuff is doing you damage, all these half-truths and misconceptions and limiting beliefs.  Clear your heart stream of these sticks and stones. When you’re done, take a breath. Give yourself a ‘mental’ hug.  Good work. Feel the space you’ve just created in your life.

Activity:

Today, when you feel yourself move into an energy of impatience, resentment, frustration, anger, say in your mind “I forgive you and myself. I wish you well. I send you love. I bless you and I set you free”  

Another useful blessing is “All is well in my world. I am love. Love is what I am attracting.”

Here’s a very short, powerful prayer for forgiveness.  Have a peaceful and blessed day. Love and Light, Nicole xx
