The key to the ascension learning to live in your heart. Our current reality was shaped by our collective minds; now it is time for our hearts to dream a new dream. When you shift your consciousness from your brain to the sacred space in your heart, you discover that the heart creates your reality, not your head. Your heart dreams life into existence and your head reacts to that dream. Learning to think with the heart is the key to mastering the dream. This process is similar to lucid dreaming.
At night, each of us dreams a great many dreams whether or not we remember. For the most part, our dreams are a product of our subconscious mind processing and cataloguing the day’s events. Occasionally, however, we experience a different type of dream. We have moments of cognition within the dream which allow us to be aware of the fact that we are dreaming. This is the lucidity of which I speak. There are specific techniques for learning to dream lucidly. This is a wonderful skill to hone. When we actively and consciously participate in our dreams, we gain access to our subconscious mind. That gives us greater insight, knowledge, and power, over areas of our life that we normally do not control. Thinking with your heart is like having a lucid dream. It will give you the same degree of control, insight and knowledge over the life you are creating.
Moving into the Heart
In order to think with the heart, you need to shift your awareness or consciousness from your brain into your heart. To do so, imagine your consciousness to be a white orb. It is currently sitting, most likely, in the center of your brain. Allow it to move out of your brain down into your chest and over behind your heart. This journey may happen instantly for you or could take some practice. Once you feel you have moved your awareness to your heart, the next step is to gain entrance. There is an opening in the heart which can be accessed by simply asking the heart’s permission. The heart will open its secret passage to your bubble of consciousness and allow it enter. See or sense your bubble enter the heart and traveling to the secret chamber within. Allow yourself to be guided by intuition and trust whatever guidance you receive. If this method doesn’t work for you, Drunvalo Melchizedek offers another technique.
Sacred Heart Space Experiences
I cannot tell you what your sacred space will look like, nor can I tell what you will experience within it, for your heart’s secret chamber is unique. The best advice I can give is to release all expectation of what you will see, hear, feel, and think while in this meditative space. Simply go with the flow. That being said, people generally fall into one of four extrasensory categories:
- Visual people have it the easiest in that you are able to envision the sacred space within the heart. Still, you may need to ask for light in order to be able to look around.
- If you are a feeling person, don’t attempt to see anything; just concentrate on your emotions, sensations and hunches.
- Auditory people should listen carefully to the sound the heart makes as well as to the wisdom it whispers to you.
- As for thinkers, simply note your thoughts, ideas and moments of inspiration while visiting the sacred heart space.
Just to give you an idea of what a sacred heart experience might be like, I will share with you my own experiences. Before I do so, I must emphasize that everyone is unique and your sacred heart space will reflect that individuality. In other words, don’t compare your experiences with mine or anyone else.
In the beginning, my secret heart space resembled a small, rectangular studio apartment. The room was all white. The more I accessed the room, the whiter and brighter the room became. Light streamed in from above through a stained glass sky light. The main wall was completely devoted to a giant picture window. There was a comfortable white leather coach facing the window. This is where I sat and contemplated life. The window visually answered my questions and allowed me to peer into the past and future. I could even travel into space via the window. On the adjoining wall, there was an opening which resembled a door laying on its side. It could only be accessed by laying on the ground and rolling in through the opening. Whenever I did so, I ended up in an open sarcophagus inside the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid in Giza. The ascended master Thoth was always waiting to teach me something new. I wrote about some of my lessons with Thoth in a previous article.
[UPDATED JAN. 16/14] The sacred space of my heart began to evolve. As more light poured in, the ceilings and walls became windows. A passageway linking the sacred space with the tiny, secret space of the heart. The rectangle walls softened into sweeping curves, and the whole space began to resemble the interior of a UFO. Outside my windows bright stars appeared against an inky black expanse. Visits to the heart would instantly activate my UFO, and transport me into outer space. I came to understand that my heart was the key that activated my MerKaBa, and the fully activated MerKaBa field resembled a UFO.
Contrary to what you might imagine, the heart doesn’t see the world through rose-coloured glasses. It is very perceptive. Unlike the head, the heart cannot be flattered or coerced into seeing things through someone else’s filter. The heart has an unwavering integrity which demands nothing less than complete authenticity. The heart knows what is truly in your best and highest interest, and so it will give you one clear answer per question. It’s very peaceful knowing the truth and not having to listen to conflicting chatter.
There is one thing I will warn you about, however; your heart may ask you to do or say things that push you well beyond your comfort zone. If it does, just know that you are being realigned with your soul’s purpose. It may scare you, but it will bring you greater joy and fulfillment eventually. Also, the heart may shatter some old illusions. Depending on how entrenched these ideas are, and how attached to them you have become, the process can be quite uncomfortable. Just know that this too shall pass. We all experience discomfort whenever our belief system is challenged. That reaction is your ego talking.
The heart knows infinitely more than the ego and it has a greater perspective on life than your earthly persona ever will. That’s because your heart is connected to All That Is whereas your ego is only aware of this particular Earthly creation. Once you make a permanent move to the heart, all that ego attachment is severed and you are now free to expand your consciousness as far and wide as you wish.
