Mystical Heart

There is a light that shines beyond all things on Earth, beyond us all, beyond the heavens, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in our heart. - Chandogya Upanishad 3.13.7

You are a spiritual being of light, a child of God. A part of you lives in God and a part of God lives in your heart. Many spiritual teachings the world over agree the heart is more than a physical organ and teach it is place of light and spirituality that contains not only love but also the sacred fires of harmony, grace and beauty. The heart holds the key to Self.

Using a combination of Eastern mysticism and Western Science, doctors are discovering the impact the heart has on virtually everything in your immediate surroundings. Scientific studies prove what the ancients have always known; the heart is a flowing stream of intelligence, wisdom and feeling.

Mark Twain once said, "One learns people through the heart, not the eyes or the intellect." The heart is a source of intuitive guidance and is always in a constant state of sensing and feeling the world around you. When you first meet someone, your heart is intuitively reading his or her soul and heart. It is through the heart that you sense the needs of another and when you follow the guidance of your heart it often turns out to be just what the person needs.

"Heart intelligence doesn't have to be a mystery. We hear people telling others to use heart intelligence all the time. When you tell children to remember to appreciate, or tell a friend to be honest with himself, or tell someone to follow their heart, these are suggestions of heart intelligence. When you tell someone who's holding on to resentment about the past, "It's time to forgive," or "You have to release and let go of that stuff," that's a sincere gesture of heart intelligence." 1

We speak to God through the heart. This is why the ancients say prayer is the language of the heart. Your attunement with the heart, or lack of it, affects not only your life but also the lives of everyone around you.

When you focus on the heart and the qualities flowing in the pink ray you begin to build on your inner strengths and become more heart-centered. You start to speak and listen from the heart. This in turn helps you to communicate better and to develop healthier relationships. You begin to see things as they really are when you are heart-centered.

We've mentioned how all true connections to God and cosmic dimensions are made in the secret chamber of the heart and how the secret chamber is the gateway between this world and the spiritual world. It is the place where inner healing and self-transformation takes place. One very powerful tool that can accelerate spiritual transformation is the violet flame. Let's find out more about it.
