We’ve long been told to “follow our heart”—and the simple yet deeply effective Open Heart Meditation helps us begin to enjoy this real experience for ourselves. In this beautifully guided meditation, we are helped to relax and effortlessly experience the feelings of peace, calmness and happiness that are always accessible in our spiritual hearts. Open Heart Meditation is universal, nondenominational, and purely experiential, centered on gentle, heart-based “feeling” rather than on brain-oriented visualizations or breathing techniques.
Through Open Heart Meditation and the natural process of opening our hearts to our Divine Source, we can:
♥ Live from our hearts with a greater sense of joy, fulfillment, positivity, and purpose;
♥ Reduce daily stress and enhance emotional balance, which allows the natural healing process to happen much faster;
♥ Improve our spiritual growth and strengthen our beautiful connection with the Creator;
♥ Enjoy a deeper experience of heart-felt gratitude;
♥ Learn how to forgive others and ourselves–a transformational experience when done at the heart level;
♥ Let our hearts be strengthened and cleansed of negative emotions, such as anger, sadness, fear, and dissatisfaction; and
♥ Achieve deeper and more joyful and meaningful meditations, even for those who have never meditated before.
