Note to the reader: “Self” is used in the context of the following as our direct connection to infinite intelligence, not to be confused with the personal self-ego.
Allowing the qualities of the heart to unfold, deepening self acceptance, will allow the HeartSelf-intelligence to unveil itself, freeing the path to the innermost source where love is infinite. This love is accessible by focusing on qualities of the heart. What are the qualities of the Heart? I may consciously choose to move into the frequency vibration where the heart resides and aligning my being with it. After which, three major methodological approaches are available (among others), to ease the access to the HeartSelf-Intelligence and its vibrational frequency systematically.
Included in the Heart meditations are:
- to befriend the Heart, b) to discover the inner Heart space, c) experiencing the Heart pulse, d) listening to the voice of the the Heart, e) connecting to the Heart of the Earth, f) discovering the cosmic Heart.
- Turning my perspective toward the personality with its characteristics and psychodynamic structures. Training the observer to be aligned with the Heart to embrace and accept the parts or patterns in my psyche I dislike most.
- Moving from I must – to I may; from holding on – to letting go; from control – to surrender.
Consciously choosing to align with the higher, deeper innermost “HeartSelf”, its infinite Intelligence becomes available. HeartSelf-Intelligence is based on the awareness of “the Self”, as the unlimited infinite potential and Intelligence, inherent in each, flowing and expressing through body/mind action in every day life.
The re-membering is an organic process which takes place in each ones own rhythm. As the inner voice emerges by fostering qualities such as trust, gratitude, compassion, love, choice and more, I recognize that this voice is my inner Guru. It is available if I am willing to listen, to guide me to be fully present, appreciate and enjoy fully being in this body.
The quality of my life, (that is, my vibrational frequency) corresponds to the unfolding of the capability to love and the depth of self acceptance. As this love for myself intensifies, I align more and more with the “Self”, the source of this infinite love and resonate with it. Its infinite Intelligence becomes accessible allowing this unlimited potential to flow into form and creativity.
In our present traditional psychology in general, the foundation for all human behaviour is the fear of existence. This basic presumption determines the quality of life on all levels. For most it remains the unconscious motivator in everyday life. This fear will dictate the quality of my life. It wears many clothes. Fear of existence – not to have enough – leads to battle, into war, winning and loosing, etc. This extends peripherally into games, sports, and work. The fear program inhibits to live a different quality of life and to manifest the true human potential, which is to express infinite intelligence through this body/mind/spirit in form.
The Psychology of the “HeartSelf-Intelligence” presumes the inherent potential of infinite intelligence as the birthright of each. In many beings this is latent and its abundance and wealth is waiting to be expressed. It can be allowed to unfold and flow. This involves a conscious choice to align with my birthright.
The wealth and abundance of the infinite potential can become accessible by acknowledging that I am a “Self”. This awareness and honoring myself opens the portals for an intimate connection with the wisdom of the “Self” and one’s profound inner depth. It is my birthright and waiting to be activated. Identifying with this inner depth, the pathologies and imperfections can be faced and held lovingly. This in turn leads to a more profound acceptance and alignment with its loving power. My conscious acceptance stimulates the increase of the inner flow of love. To embrace myself and my shortcomings, is an act of love, releasing energies held in the personality patterns to flow into creative action.
When seeing from the heart, the other is a “Self” with its infinite potential. This creates a deep acceptance of the other and the recognition that we are all embedded in that larger field of collective potential and each is connected to the source.
The methods to move into this vibrational field are: meditation, learning to love that which I dislike in myself, and fostering qualities such as trust, gratitude, joy, etc. to begin to listen to the voice of the heart, the inner Guru.
Used in a therapeutic approach, it is presumed that the heart stores a cellular emotional memory of all past experiences. Its emotional content can be accessed easily once the inner voice of the Heart is allowed to emerge. The brain contains the belief systems and patterns connected to these emotions. When pattern and related emotions, or vice versa, become aware, the HeartSelf-Intelligence can release these on a cellular level as well.
