What role does appreciation play in our lives? Why is feeling appreciation so important when it comes to opening the heart?
Starting with this month’s full moon, I’ll be hosting a monthly event called The Inner Temple of the Heart featuring a heart-focused guided meditation.
Why the full moon?
Because the subtle energies available during this special time invite us to deepen our connection to our inner wisdom, unexpressed emotions, and the true desires of our soul.
As the warm sun illuminates the cool darkness of the moon, so are all these unexamined aspects of ourselves brought forth into the light, giving us the opportunity to heal, grow and transform.
In our human bodies, our heart is the equivalent to our central planetary sun. By bringing our focused attention to the spiritual heart or heart behind the heart, we begin to gain access to what our ancestral traditions referred to as The Inner Temple of the Heart. This is your inner sanctuary and source of love, wisdom, and power, generating the largest electromagnetic energy field of your body.
This energy field expands in all directions, connecting you to all living beings in all dimensions, transcending time and space. It connects you to the infinite wisdom of your soul, to the Universal Heart of our Creator, Spirit or God, to the Archangelic realm.
Directing our focused attention, through heart-intentional-breathing, establishes a deeper connection with our Inner Temple of the Heart, activating the vibrational frequencies of what I refer to as the 12 Virtues of the Heart. They are appreciation, compassion, forgiveness, humility, understanding, valor, love, kindness, freedom, truth, harmony and honor.
In this first meditation, we’ll be activating the virtue of appreciation. Appreciation is what allows us to feel our connection to all of life and its beauty. To appreciate means to give value, or to recognize the worth of something or someone. Appreciation is is the key that opens your heart.
I hope you enjoy this first Inner Temple of the Heart, and that it opens your heart to welcoming greater love, abundance, and joy in your life!
