The Heart sits in the center of our body. And the Heart chakra (the fourth of seven, called “Anahata”)* is situated midway between the other six as the bridge between the three “higher” and three “lower” ones.
Which is to say, the Heart stands at the symbolic and energetic crossroads connecting our physical and spiritual “worlds,” between what is lived and what is felt.
It is also situated at the center of day to day life and what that lived reality really MEANS for you.
Is it any wonder, then, that the Heart has long symbolized love, devotion, compassion and that which is honest and pure. In fact, our language is chock-full of expressions which underlie this truth: follow your Heart, get to the Heart of the matter, have a Heart to Heart talk, to know something by Heart, pour out your Heart, have a change of Heart and to not be half-Hearted about anything.
All of these expressions underscore the central fact that life IS relationship.
And in relationship we are called to “open” our Heart to another and (hopefully) experience honesty and acceptance as the basis for a “Heartfelt” connection.
The Heart comes to remind you that only when we give ourselves fully and completely to a person or situation (e.g. “with all of our Heart”) that the magic (or power) of Love can unfold. And though we’ve all experienced the pain of a broken Heart (perhaps from a “mis-giving”), it is only by courageously sharing the truth of what and who we are with another that life truly becomes worth living.
Remember, nothing remarkable or amazing ever came about through half measures.
Some questions to guide your meditation:
- How do I show my love to others?
- Am I generally guarded or open in my relationships?
- To what or whom am I willing to give without reservation?
- Is some situation or issue calling for me to be more compassionate?
* In Sanskrit, anahata means “unhurt, unstruck, and unbeaten.” (from Wikipedia).
