We are meant to be happy

That has always been something we strive for in this life. In fact, if we look at the motivations behind our thoughts and actions—conscious and unconscious—they are all to get us closer to the feeling, or at least the idea, of happiness.

Some of us have long asked why we cannot hold on to happiness. For all of the scholarship and human insights across the centuries, nobody has found a complete and enduring answer. Perhaps because it has been too close to see…

The answer, the key, is our heart.

Preparation Steps

Each time we have negative emotions, we place negativities within our heart even though the negative emotions were not expressed. We have many different types of negative emotions that we experience on a daily basis. Therefore, there are a lot of negativities stored within the field of our heart.

When we begin to open our heart, we also begin to cleanse our heart. In order for our heart to open bigger, we have to cleanse our heart by allowing the blessings of the True Source to help.

Only the True Source can bless our heart because there is a direct connection between our heart and the True Source. No other being can bless and cleanse our heart.

Opening our heart is universal and applies to all religions and faiths. Feel free to replace the words, “True Source” with whatever name you use that represents the “Source of Light and Love”.

In Open Heart Meditation, there is a part where you will be asked to forgive all people who have done wrong to you. Write down the names of the people who have done wrong to you or let your heart recognize who needs forgiveness. This will help you later during the meditation.

It is important to forgive people who have done wrong to us in any way. When we do not forgive, our heart is closed and we are the ones who suffer from our unforgivingness

We also want to ask forgiveness for all of our wrong doings, which includes all of the times we have not been of service because of our words, emotions or actions. You can write a list of the wrong doings from the past that come to your awareness.

As we are asking True Source to cleanse our heart from negative emotions, in the process, there could be different kinds of cleansing reactions such as crying, screaming, etc. Do not hold these negative emotions, just let them go. Remember, you are not making new negative emotions. You are letting the blessing release negative emotions that had been stored within your heart.
