Within the human body there’s a subtle energy system traditionally referred as the “chakra” system. The word chakra in Sanskrit simply means ‘wheel’. Therefore, this energy system consists of a series of ’wheels’ or energetic centers through which the life force commonly known as ‘kundalini’ flows.
The energy held in each one of the chakras has a direct impact on both our physical and emotional bodies. The energy in each chakra flows out through channels called “meridians” which are intimately linked to a particular organ and through that organ to a particular emotion. For example, depression, despair, and melancholy are associated with the liver meridian, therefore interfering with liver function.
Something most people don’t know is that the energy contained in each chakra can be measured by a variety of clinical techniques and sensitive electronic equipment. Dr. David Hawkins, author of Power vs Force: The Determinants of Human Behavior, used Kinesiology muscle testing to create a calibrated Map of Consciousness where each chakra calibrates as follows:
Third Eye (525)
Solar Plexus (275)
Sacral or Spleen (275), and
Base or Root Chakra (200)
The number associated with each chakra basically represents a number in a logarithmic scale from 1 to 1,000 of energetic force, which can also be associated to a particular emotion.
For example, the level of 275 at the Solar Plexus is associated with willingness, or a positive and friendly attitude you take when you want to be of assistance and help to others. This is why your Solar Plexus is the center of will and power.
The Heart chakra, calibrating at 505 when fully activated, holds the emotion of love, a way of being that is forgiving, nurturing, and supportive. According to Dr. Hawkins, it’s a level of energy that…
“Does not proceed from the mind; rather, it emanates from the heart. Love focuses on the essence of a situation, not the details. It deals with wholes, not particulars. As perception is replaced with vision, it takes no position and sees the intrinsic value and lovability of all that exists.”
When I talk about Manifesting from the Heart, what I’m referring to is learning how to tap into this “kundalini” energy or force that lives in your heart chakra – exponentially more powerful than your Solar Plexus, by activating the emotions of love and appreciation, thus creating an electro-magnetic field that will begin to attract or draw towards you the right people, events, resources and circumstances that will help you in manifesting your heart’s desires. This will also result in greater physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.
Plain and simply, “like goes to like”. So when you’re feeling loving and grateful you’ll attract towards you more thoughts, things, and circumstances to love and feel grateful for. Similarly, when you’re feeling needy and desperate, you’ll attract more thoughts, things, and circumstances, to keep you feeling needy and as if there’s not enough. As one of my mentors likes to say, we live in a “return to sender” universe. So, what are you putting out energetically out into the world?
A powerful coaching question I often ask my clients and one you can ask yourself when you feel like you’re stuck in a rut is,
“What is my heart truly longing for and how am I keeping it away?”
If you took the time to find a quiet space, both internally and externally, to answer this question, the answers you receive will be enough to help you create the awareness of what needs to shift within you, what is it you need to let go or release in order to move into a more loving, and receptive ‘heart’ space.
This is what it means to Manifest from the Heart. Using your heart’s power to expand your electro-magnetic attractor field, so that you can ultimate receive with an open heart what your heart is truly longing for, creating the relationships, projects, career, lifestyles, or circumstances that will make your heart sing with joy. This is heart power in action!
But don’t just take my word for it. After you read this, how about if you find a quiet place without distractions and connect with your heart by…
1) breathing deeply into it,
2) giving yourself permission to feel love and appreciation for where you are along your journey and
3) asking yourself, “What is my heart longing for, and how am I keeping it away?”.
Then listen, listen closely and deeply, listen with all your senses and do whatever it is you have to do to make whatever changes are necessary in your life, so that you can become like the blossoming flower that irresistibly draws the bees to a feast. This might be the best gift you can give yourself, your friends, family, and the world.
