In Summer, Universal energies are most closely aligned with the Heart’s frequency. The key to Heart harmony is to empty the mind and to be peaceful inside and out. Our stressful lives and demanding schedules often make it hard to reach this state of peacefulness, but it is always possible to bring love and happiness into your being.
Close your eyes. Picture someone or something that you love very deeply. Notice how your body responds to that memory—your face relaxes, your smile widens, your heartbeat slows—your whole body responds. That is love. That feeling is true.
Love is not just in the mind—it’s energy and consciousness. All of your cells have a memory of love, so this energy can be saved as data. Remember this feeling of love and make it part of yourself. Memorize it down to your cell level. Then later, if you feel depressed or stressed, or if something bothers you, sit back, close your eyes, and conjure up that feeling of love.
Down the road, you might discover a new love—something more than your memorized feeling. So close your eyes again and bring that feeling into yourself. Recall how you feel. How does your chest, your neck, your face, your heartbeat—your whole body respond? Change your memory so you have an even stronger feeling to return to. This memory will be with you forever.
In traditional Chinese medicine, each organ has a time of dominance throughout the day. Heart time is between 11am and 1pm. Practice Heart harmony. Find a few minutes during this time to close your eyes. Bring your feelings of love to the surface and continue to practice feeding your body love. Eventually, you’ll be able to replace negative feelings of sadness with love and peacefulness.
