Our thoughts often consume our minds controlling how we feel, think and live our lives. With over 60,000 thoughts a day, 90% being repetitive; learning to take control and let go of negative thoughts can be overwhelming.
Radiating love within ourselves supports our mind, body and spirit. Taking small steps everyday can help change our mindset, out with the old, slowly introducing a new routine. If everything we do is for love, love being the foundation, we will start to feel and see things differently. Picking out the positive, brushing off the negative. Our senses and body language will adapt and change. Love radiates, if we choose love, consume love, we will spread love. Love is hugely nourishing for our mental health. “Where there is love there is life.” Mahatma Ghandi.
Below is a five minute ‘opening of the heart’ visualisation. Have a read first so you are familiar with the sequence. Repeat and practise daily. When thoughts arise, notice them and just let them pass.
The heart chakra, the element of air, is located in the centre of our chest, the colour of green ‘anahata’ brings us love, warmth, compassion and joy. If you do like to use essential oils I recommend Lavender, Rosemary or Jasmine scents to surround you during this visualisation.
Sit somewhere quiet. Make yourself comfortable, preferably with your feet grounded. Close your eyes. Start by placing your inner focus on your heart chakra. Put your hands on your heart and just breath normally, feel your heart beat, listen to the rhythm of your heart and be grateful for how your heart is working for you.
Take some deep breaths; this enables the mind, body and spirit to relax, creating a peaceful and calm open space. Inhale and fill you diaphragm for 7 counts, hold your breath for 4 counts and then exhale for 8 counts, on the exhale we are removing all negative toxins, thoughts and energies. Repeat this 5 times.
Come back to your normal breathing.
Visualise a beautiful rose bud. Feel your heart chakra open as the light pours into the bud. The energy fills up your rose and you can see it growing bigger and bigger. It smells beautiful, it’s full of bright silky red petals. As it opens up, your chest area experiences the greatest love you have ever felt. You feel warm and happy, you have created this experience all by yourself. Keep focusing on the love. Imagine a heart dial on your chest, turn it up as high as you can and feel your body start filling up, every part of you is filled with love and it is now growing bigger, moving out of your body, into your room, out the front door and into the world. This love that you have created is shared with one and all. Tell yourself or out loud “I AM LOVE” repeat this 20 times. Stay with this energy. Smile and take a deep breath in, this time you know you are breathing in loves energy and when you exhale you’ll be sending love back out into the universe.
Open your eyes. Sit and smile with your love energy. This will be with you wherever you go.
Thank the universe for guiding you through this visualisation and send it love. It will keep sending you love.
Sending love out into the universe and having it come back to us through miracles of synchronicity and enlightenment will help create a more loving place on this earth. Love is the most divine highest vibration, energy, light source, strength, courage and wisdom. Love bears no judgement.
Do this visualisation by yourself, with your children, friends or with work colleagues. It will bring you back to the core foundation of our being that is love.
