Wisdom of the ages regularly advises “going within” to find “God”, the Infinite One, the I Am. Meditation opens the heart thus allowing this pursuit.
When inside the heart-zone distractions do not present. Each breath brings more quiet, more peace, feelings of harmony and balance. Not each day, though, is the trip to this land the same. Some days it is relatively easy and with others it takes a while.
With persistence, this practice is a joyful one. I don’t industriously breathe in and out waiting for results or events to take place. With patience, I use the breath to encourage the expansion of the energies and the escalation of their frequencies.
Through breathwork I create the experience. I’m in the driver’s seat, allowing and creating joy! I’m not a victim nor am I wading in the victimhood of some self scripted movie founded in external circumstance.
Through this practice and similar others I’m transmuting those feelings that don’t expand but contract — the ones that sink the mood. I’m retraining the brain and its perceptions to look for, appreciate and create preferred experiences.
When I’m experiencing a contraction I stop a moment and inhale, go to the heart-zone and experience a mental expansion or shift in focus that dissolves whatever it is that displeases. Resting in the exhale I further detach myself from the disturbance.
A few moments of this relieves me of the contractions. Also, I have empowered myself with the learning experience of retraining the brain.
I think the Universal Law of Transmutation presents here. I feel it does when I invoke it when I’m in the heart zone.
Spirit-speak aside, the concept of neural plasticity lends a hand in this as well where the meditative practice helps to retrain the brain and perception.
With this exercise I can be the alchemist. When the breath brings me to a stillpoint I can transform and transmute. I’ve felt these transformational shifts take place and I can now rely on the ability to do so.
I can rise up out of the hole of victimhood and into the world of Love with continuity when I enable the practice of going within.
When I meditate I use the heart to “feel” my way to the inner world. Arriving there, what I feel pleases and empowers.
Using this path to the heart I engage inner Self-discovery and identification. I shift my inquiry from looking without for validation to looking within. I seek to identify the fractalized part of me that is of the Infinite One, the I Am that I Am.
I register the tingling sensations felt when I do breathwork as an inroad to the understanding of the energy body.
Directing the breath with appreciation and the intention that each respiration nourishes, the tingling increases and I further acquaint myself with a deeper level of that inner world.
I’m using the breath to intentionally familiarize myself with inner sensations that advocate a deeper understanding and identification with the aspect of me that is the enveloped body of an eternal being of energy.
That part of me that can only be experienced from the inside. I am so much more than I have been taught!
