I particularly like the practice of taking in the pain and transforming it within and then out.

I have some questions, and they are for the purpose of understanding.
the initial breathing practice takes the breath first to below the navel.
in energy body that is the sacral.
or did you mean just at the navel chakra itself?
is this a particular activation of the sacral or navel during the inner heart opening practice? what is the reason or intention for this?
also, can we distinguish between inner and outer heart here? and how I would know if I were accessing or practicing love with either?

I will practice these anyhow, reading the process alone already activated the heart chakra for me. so my intuition is in agreement and loves the mindful/heartful transformation of pain to love within the practice.

this is beautiful thank you.
and also, any answers if, would be nice.
I'm a curious kind and like to understand deeper what often my intuition presents to me.

thanking you Xan
love and peace

Fatimasque...

I like the receiving and giving transformation meditation too as it benefits not only me but others and all.


How we breathe into the belly can vary. I may breathe into the whole belly, letting the deeper mind direct it. Or I may breathe into the hara... the lower tantien just below the navel. The tantiens are more subtle energy centers than the chakras.


The lower centers, from the solar plexus down, have to do with our will and manifestation. In most of us the will and heart have become disconnected so conscious breathing here can reestablish the natural interaction.


The outer heart has to do with emotion and love connection with others, beauty and nature. The inner heart is our center of being and a portal to infinite Source. Here we experience love itself... unrelated to anyone or anything in particular. It is subtle and all inclusive.


I'm so glad to hear that your heart center is awakening....

You have so much knowledge. You certainly have been missed.

Only in the pauses between things,

in the brief contemplative spaces of just being,

can we catch a glimpse of love itself.

thank you so much for this.
Truly truly provided with lightness, and I promise, received with the same.
I appreciate your delivery and clarity, it has uplifted me beautifully.

yes, I see what you mean about connecting the will with the heart.
succinct and a perfect explanation. its been registered already!
(I download fast sometimes, haha)

I've never come across tantiens before.
this is incredibly exciting for me. I am in particular interested in learning
our energy body's anatomy. in my personal explorations
I have already discovered more simply in my own intuitive healing
but my tools and language still limited. I have an understanding
but I lack the words to express it.

if you have a particular recommendation of school or source,
as to illuminate more on the subject,
I will appreciate it of course, but also
with no demand or expectation from my end.
I can find answers my own still.

I have copy pasted your post into a document and saved already too.
haha. some things are worth returning to for reference.
(just incase another download is needed. haha

with regards to the distinction between inner and outer heart.
thank you for that too. it is clear to me, and comforting too.

Love and Kindness your way
sprinkled with appreciation and warmth
