“Tears are words the heart can’t express” ~ Anon

Native American Saying
Often we look outside ourselves to find comfort, and to release and heal emotional and energetic blockages and traumas. While there are many loving and qualified people available to help us, sometimes the most simple and intense healings we can have are ones that we conduct on our own behalf. Today’s blog explores some simple techniques you can use to heal your own heart.
Activity: Ritual for Healing The Heart Chakra
The most important ingredient here is Right Intent. The purpose of Ritual is to focus your energy and concentration, and to put your Ego, conscious and unconscious Self on notice that this is important!
Read the ritual thoroughly to be clear about what you need to do, and what tools you may require so that you begin in an organised and calm state. If you find the ritual helpful, please write and let me know. I love and appreciate your feedback!
Purpose: This simple healing ritual is for people who are blocked by fear, loneliness, grief and pain, and who have low self-worth and self-love. The ritual gradually peels away layers of trapped and negative vibration, and allows a flood of healing light to rebalance and cleanse this chakra. The treatment is gentle, and can be used over time to allow deeper and deeper levels of trauma to be easily released. It can also be used for linear (this lifetime) and past life issues clouding your present direction and happiness.
Tools: An unused white candle, a rose quartz and an amethyst crystal, some carrier oil (such as sweet almond oil) in a china or glass bowl, and a few drops of bergamot oil.
Method: Leave yourself at least half an hour, and some quiet time afterwards for integration. Place your candle and the bowl of oil with the two crystals on either side. Quieten yourself, then light the candle and say the following, “I release all fear. I release all pain. I am Joy. I am Love. I now embrace my Sacred Self.” Sit quietly in front of the candle and close your eyes. Visualise white Light surrounding your body and streaming into your heart. Feel the presence of a Higher Energy, God, Guides or Angels around you. You may also want to offer up a Prayer for healing at this time.
When you are ready, take the oil, and rub it into the skin around your heart chakra in a circular anti-clockwise motion. As you do this, breathe slowly and calmly and recite the following “I invite Love into my Heart. I invite Love into my Life. I am worthy and deserving of this Love. Love is my nature.” Say this as many times as feels right for you. Feel your heart chakra gently softening, opening, and releasing the trapped energy. Visualise Golden Light pouring into your Heart. When you are finished, say a simple prayer of Thanks. Sit or lie quietly and allow your body to become accustomed to its new, clearer vibration.
Write a ‘welcome’ letter to the love you wish to invite into your life, or the you that you wish to become. Pour your dreams and desires out onto the page. Sign off with love and a sense of happy expectation. Let it be a new beginning.
This is a short (3 minute) meditation using sound, colour and sacred geometry to open and balance your heart chakra, bringing much healing. For those of you who are energetically sensitive or interested in psychic development, pay attention to any energetic sensations around your heart. You may feel tingling, pulsing, buzzing or opening. It may also open you to dreams and messages. Enjoy. ♥
