The following Meditation on "Dissolving Impediments to Opening the Heart" was given through Yaël Powell at Circle of Light on Tuesday November 19, 2002, during a group meeting.
Once you have done this Meditation and established this connection with God, there is no need to repeat it. Any and all impediments to having a clear and open heart for God to pour Love through will continue to arise, and God will continue to remove them.
You may re-experience briefly in your mind and emotions the situations that created these impediments, even with some discomfort. This is the “replay” as the removal is occurring. If this occurs, know that it is of the past, and do not be concerned. Simply pray gratitude, giving thanks for the fact that all blockages to your completely open heart are now being removed. Reading the excerpt from the Messages from God at the end of the Meditation will clarify this.
As you do the Meditation, read a paragraph, and then close your eyes and allow time to completely absorb the experience. You may want to record it on a tape and play it back to yourself.
MEDITATION * DISSOLVING IMPEDIMENTS TO OPENING THE HEART
Begin by taking deep breaths, sinking into your heart with all of your consciousness. With every breath in, open your heart, larger and larger and larger. As you breathe in and your heart opens, feel yourself connecting to the All of God, the great ocean of Love, vibrant and alive, vast, yet tender.
So now you have a gloriously open heart connected to the All of Love. The vast, the un-manifest. And now you feel that ocean of God’s Love permeating your being and funneling through your heart. Not just your physical heart, of course, but the heart of Love that you are. With every out-breath, God pours through you to touch and love manifested life.
We are aware of ourselves now as that point where God loves through us. Be conscious of how it feels as Love pours through you. Feel how it blesses, how it kisses every cell of your body, how it illuminates every particle of Love that you are, how it resonates with the light that is in every atom, with the life that you are. How does it feel to be the very heart of God?
Breathe in, becoming the open heart, communing with the All of Love. Breathe out as Love pours through the opening that is you and God’s Love comes into the world. Notice how it feels to be touched by this Love, to be its vehicle, its vessel. Allow the Love to pour through you and your mind to notice, AFTER the fact. Notice, if you can, how this Love honors the truth of who you are, your existence.
As you feel this Love pouring through you, keep expanding in your awareness of the heart that you are. Expanding until there is nothing else. No personality, no body, only the glorious opening for Love. Feel the celebration of life, exaltation, joy as that Love pours through you. Notice that there is only Love, washing through you, pouring through you, rushing through you, without discrimination. It doesn’t go some places and not to others. It doesn’t find some lives worthy and others not. It just pours through you. All of life manifest is being loved through us. The rushing, dancing river of living Love, pouring through the heart of God we are.
Now placing our consciousness right at that point that is the opening of our heart, the place where God’s Love pours through, the window pane of our spirit – the heart – allow to rise up before this opening something that restricts the passage of this Love -- something that is a belief or a part of who you think you are, something that needs the forgiveness of letting go. Allow it to rise up from within from the wisdom that God is with you. Hold it there in front of the opening that is your heart.
Now, breathing in – connect to the glorious All of the Love of God and allow that Love pouring through your heart to love that flaw, that part that needs releasing. To love it, to love it, to pour that Love upon it with passion and with tenderness, all the urgency of the river of life, reaching through to lift it up, to dissolve its hold on your heart. Love washes it tenderly until you see it dissolving, until where there was a blockage, there is only living Love. Know that anything exposed to this Love can only dissolve, its energy freed at last.
And now, breathing in, you are held within the All of God. You are held in Love so magnificent that you are filled with joy and love so tender that you are sure in every fiber of your being of God’s personal support of you. You are suspended in abundance and perfection – the perfection of God’s Love for you. You are resting in the ocean of God and you are filled with a clarity you have never known – the experience of how precisely God shows you your unique beauty, the truth of your creation. This glorious all encompassing, personal yet limitless Love of God reveals to you the full capacity of your heart, so that now…
Breathing out, God’s Love now flows through you completely unimpeded. The opening that is the center of your being, the great heart that you are is filled with ecstasy because now you are aware that this very same tender uplifting, deeply personal Love of God you have experienced, can pour through your heart. In this way God may reach others through the sacred opening for Love that you are. The “window-pane” of your spirit, the center of your being, your heart, is crystal clear.
Breathing in, you feel the sweet support of the All of God, reflecting to you your truest self. Breathing out, you know yourself as the clear unimpeded heart through which God now perfectly loves the world.
Now you have the assurance that all impediments will be removed from your heart by God. So you can simply rest in this assurance – that God will do the work of Love in and through you now in each and every moment.
Every person, every plant, every particle of energy – God will love them through you. And as divine Love is ever moving through you, you will be giving beyond any thought or desire to receive. Just so will you truly receive all that you give, which is now all that God gives through you, multiplied and delivered to your open and accepting heart.
