Intuitive Thinking: Healing the Heart Nucleus

Copyright © 2013

Imagine that your heart was open and healed on all levels. In fact, how many of us have experienced this in a real, tangible way? Do we even have a reference point for what that would be like? We carry many past grievances and injuries within our heart capacity. It has diminished the way some allow themselves to feel. Others feel just a little too much, ad it might be easier for them to feel someone else's pain rather than addressing their own. Pain can come in many ways. we are all addressing or avoiding a concentration of pain that we hold deep in the cavities of our heart..

In the heart we hold imprints of past hurts that have impacted us. These may come from somewhere within our present day life, but upon reflection, frequently are just a mirror of a deep-seated grief, loss, something that has profoundly impacted us on a deep emotional level from our past. this could be from adolescence, childhood or rebounded from some past life experience. The important piece of information to be gathered from these imprints is not so much the experience around it, but getting to the cause, the nucleus of the situation..


We are sometimes besieged by 'repetitive pattern syndrome'. This syndrome seems to innocuously appear on our path, and before we've realized what's transpired, we've been once again struck by the onslaught of 'repetitive pattern syndrome'.

Initially, it may feel quite benign, but upon closer scrutiny we find ourselves mired in dense heavy energy: stuck, almost paralyzed by indecision, or left directionless or feeling reactionary to the circumstances around us. It can come from overt to really covert behaviour, but the end result is it creates a huge stop sign in our lives. It is a malformed behavioural pattern whose bottom line is to create dysfunction and disarray in our lives.

The energy of these patterns will typically have a dense, heavy feel and a muddy colour. The energy can feel sticky or congealed. Do not expect that it will always take the same form as these patterns definitely have a shapeshifting ability to them. It may involve the same group of people and similar situations, but that is not a necessary element. What is essential is how the emotion of the situation affects us and how we react to a certain set of stimuli. That is the beginning of recognition and dismantling the intelligence of those patterns.

Another key element to these patterns is that they habitually strike out at the heart level. We almost immediately go into some type of emotional shut-down when these patterns are playing out. We no longer are in touch with and accessing our own emotions from our hearts... many times we are hooked into our heads. Time and time again we have attracted these behaviours and for whatever reason have been unable to resolve or defuse them so we keep the cycle going and keep attracting the patterns to us in an attempt to finally et ourselves free from this self-imposed imprisonment..


There can be an internal yearning in the heart for a higher calling, but sometimes it is easier to yield to the louder calling of the 'smoke and mirrors'. It can override the subtleties of our own higher calling and instead of tapping into the resources in the heart taps into the primordial grasping of our lower echelon of being.

Many times experiences in our daily lives result from past decisions and choices. If we expand this concept looking at it through a broader spectrum and removing the barriers and limitations timelines can subset into an equation.

The sequence we want to examine through the filter of cosmic or universal laws are your beliefs. We all know that many of the issues impacting us on a micro or macrocosm wavelength result from an inability for many to connect or re-connect with their own heart space.


We In order to fully open our heart streams and allow the energy to purge out the dark elements in our soul streams we need to understand the heart and how living in a closed heart space hinders our spiritual, psychic and emotional progress.

Psychic development alone is not enough. It can leave us spiritually stunted. Spiritual development where we withhold from ourselves, our psychic development and our emotional intellect is just a shadow of being spiritually awakened. It can deceive the individual into thinking they have tapped fully into their spiritual reservoir, but they are mistaken.

By connecting with our hearts we release the stigma of being closed and withholding to ourselves.


For many to live life connected to their own heart space is extremely difficult. Because in order to be connected to your own heart and experience what you are feeling you must first allow yourself to become emotionally accessible. Typically this is not something that we as a society reward people for doing.

How is it that we seem to be still stuck on the fundamentals? The ideal is to live our life in the present moment and in conscious and aware manner. To achieve this we require being in a space or a consciousness where we can open our hearts and let the light in. This light is also known as an energy and all energy is coded information. You can decipher energy without the heart space being open and you will get limited results, but when its open is then you move into limitless territory... the partnership of the heart.
