"I can't find the middle of my head!" said one of the participants. "Nothing happens for me when I finally did find the middle of my head!" complained another.
"Then go to your heart," I replied., "to that place where only you and the God of your heart - Whoever or Whatever that is for you- are allowed to go," Taking a moment to try that out, I immediately heard, "Oh, this is great! I totally get it!"
In utilizing intuition, the middle of the head is known as the neutral place - the place from which you witness events, interactions, and challenges - without judgment. Yet, there are some people for whom this is not the best place to understand what is truly happening in a situation. If your nature is compassionate and empathetic, you may need to meditate a little south of your head - and straight into the middle of your heart.
When you focus in your heart, you experience the feelings that fuel others' reactions in a relationship, and it moves you toward understanding and compassion. For you, the witnessing place is your heart - which also offers the wisdom required to best respond.
The heart is, in fact, the seat of our relationships - with self, with other, and with the Divine. When you locate your attention right there - and wait - you may receive the images, voices, and healing that you need.
Here's a way to do that:
(Use a timer and start with five minutes)
- Relax and breathe - that alone may be a new concept!
- Locate your attention in the middle of your heart - to "the most sincere" part
- If it is challenging to stay focused there, listen to your heart beat
- No matter what else happens in your mind, return to the beat of your heart
End with a thank you to your heart, remembering that it has not stopped working for you one second since you were born!
Then let your heart shine and be seen - so others can remember their heart too.
