The powerful energy of this day greatly supports focusing on love, namely self-love. Until we are able to truly love ourselves and care for our physical needs like a healthy diet, our emotional needs like surrounding ourselves with people who uplift and support us, and our spiritual needs like forgiveness we cannot possibly love another in a healthy way. A heart chakra blocked by past grievances and hurts will inhibit our positive growth. Spend time today focusing on yourself, sending good vibes to yourself.
Open your heart chakra. When the heart chakra is blocked, anger can consume your life. You ruminate over past hurts and slight. You continually mull over your mistakes. Continual focusing on the negative only prolongs the healing. As you begin to focus on forgiveness so too you start to re-open your heart chakra. Be mindful that it might not be easy to forget but the constant remembering at the expense of living in the moment of today will not move you forward. Forgiving does not mean condoning; it is releasing yourself from negativity.
Begin today’s meditation by calling to mind someone who has hurt or betrayed you in the past. Call their image to mind and see that they no longer have any power over you. Tell this image that you are emboldening yourself through self-love to counter their negativity. Look in the eyes of this person and see deep down inside that they are wounded and fearful, for those who come from a place of love are incapable of willingly hurting another. Write down things this person said or did to you and feel the emotion that bubbles to the surface. Hold them for a moment near your heart chakra and then destroy the paper either by ripping or burning. On a new piece of paper write down some things you might have learned about yourself from your interactions with this person, how you grew and turn these things into positives. See a cord connecting you to this person and cut the cord, the connection with a powerful stream of green energy emanating from the area of your heart chakra. Take a final few cleansing breaths, return to normal waking consciousness, and open your eyes.
“As I forgive past hurts I live in the communion with the loving presence of the positive love of the universe.”
