Clarity of the Heart

This week in yoga we are focusing on 'Ajna' - the third eye chakra, our seat of perception and command located back behind our physical eyes.

When there is a disconnect between our heart and our third eye, it is like driving around with a broken GPS. You may be moving, but without direction. As we celebrate the day/month that has come to represent love, my wish for you is radiant communion between your heart and your inner 'GPS.'

And for those times that you feel you are floating around in a void or fog of confusion, here is a poem that may jumpstart the focus of the journey.

Clarity of the heart
Take me beyond - wildly beyond -
my out-dated, antiquated patterns
of thinking and being…
even beyond concepts genuinely believed
to be original and expansive.

Take me to new, untrodden paths
and ways of envisioning.

Allow my journey
to be one of moment by moment
serendipitous unfoldings,
eloquently propelling me out
of my comfort zone
and hamster-wheel paradigm

Into the unexplored.

- Maureen (February 2016)

Metta - Loving Kindness


Another brilliant method for coming into heart clarity is through the practice of Metta Bhavana - Loving Kindness Meditation. Here we recognize love for ourselves, for others in our lives and for all sentient Beings. Below are the words that I use for Metta followed by an audio version for your own personal practice as well.

May I be well.
May I be happy.
May I be free of suffering.

Picturing someone you love and care for:
May you be well.
May you be happy.
May you be free of suffering.

Picturing all of your loved ones:
May you be well.
May you be happy.
May you be free of suffering.

Picturing someone you may be having a challenge with:
May you be well.
May you be happy.
May you be free of suffering.

Picturing all Sentient Beings:
May you be well.
May you be happy.
May you be free of suffering.

Iodine & Heart Health

heart health

Iodine is an essential nutrient for the synthesis of thyroid hormones that emulate the body's functions. Dr. David Brownstein, a leading physician in the realms of iodine has found that nearly 95% of those he has tested are iodine deficient. As we bring awareness to the heart this month, be aware also that our thyroid balance has very definite effects on our cardiovascular system.   Dr. Mark Sircus, author of "Iodine - Bringing Back the Universal Medicine" speaks of the importance of iodine (along with selenium) regarding the health of the heart.

If you are interested in ordering iodine for you and your family, I can offer transformative mono-elemental iodine that is detoxified, ingestible in its colloidal 99% bioavailable state. Click here to order and for more info.


Acupressure for the Heart

heart 7

Heart (HT) 7 - Shen Men (Spirit Gate)

The heart is the residence of the Spirit and this point opens that gateway. Located in a depression just beyond the crease on the wrist on the little finger side of the hand, pressure here is very effective in bringing calm, relieving anxiety and helping reduce insomnia. It may also clear heat that rises to the throat space causing congestion/obstruction in this area thereby aiding us in speaking our truth from the heart. Hold the point for 1 - 2 minutes while breathing deeply in and out through the nose with relaxed awareness on the opening of the heart.

A classic song to open the heart.
(Thank you, John.)

Many of us may not have access to a place where we can remove ourselves from the 'noise' of the outside world. This is why I have been drawn to offer these sessions, both for experienced meditators as well as beginners.

Come into the silence of you and tap into a place of knowingness and peace.
