Heart Chakra Meditations?
    #489673 - 12/13/01 11:50 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Hello all, I consider myself a Zen Buddhist and I am wanting to learn about meditations of the heart chakra. Any instructions, personal experiences, do's and dont's, or book references would be great.

I wish to move further on down the path I've chosen, and my mind has been kind of clouded for the past two years or so. I've been pracicing hatha yoga off and on for the past year and it hasn't been doing much. I have been attempting karma yoga, but I feel that I need to open my heart chakra more in order to create better karma for myself. I think I am still too stubborn and selfish and that needs to go. Thank you for the replies.

Well you could eat some mushrooms. I dont know if they will clear/open your heart chakra but you will definately learn a few things.

It is as simple as entering the meditative state and focusing on your heart chakra. Feel what needs to happen and let it happen. Flow with it. Let the eternal love of the universe enter your body and heal you.

When I feel that one of my energy centers is out of balance, I like to spoil it with attention. The heart chakra vibrates to green and sometimes pink. Add more green to your wardrobe, wear a crystal around your neck.

A few useful ones would be rose quartz (unconditional love, healing), watermelon tourmaline (enhances co-operative effort, tact), green jade (growth, strength) or green calcite (change, transition).

Make an altar. Use some green pink or white candles, crystals, pictures of loved ones, mementos that hold meaning for you. Use burning oils like rose or bergamot.

Smile at people in the street. Tell the girl at the coffeeshop to have a great day, help a commuter who looks lost on the subway. Let your heart be open, don't gaurd it so feircely.

This is the Mayan Meditation taken from the book, "The Mayan Oracle", to ignite the remembrance of your own inner sun... To be the sun.

I ignite my luminous body from the acceptance of my divinity from within the vastness of my inner sun.
I birth potential worlds within the foundation of my human form.
I awaken my star points within this heavenly body to touch all worlds and move in all dimensions.
My inner sun blazes with unconditional love.
I ignite my heart of self.
I feel the radiance of my embodied sun.
I taste its brilliance, now consuming my yearning, distilling my essence, revealing my original state of freedom and innocence. My divine child is birthed anew.
As I merge with the spirit of the great central sun, I am the return path to the stars.

why limit yourself to being a zen buddhist?

Truly....Buddhism is by far my favorite of the organized religions, but why limit yourself? Take the best of Buddhist philosophy and practice so you can meld it into a greater set of spiritual beliefs. Meditation is a grand thing, but meditating after carefully setting up a basic Pagan altar (candles, incense, stone/gems, etc.) in the same room with said altar greatly intensifies my results no matter what my goal of the day. Just having knowledge of the simbolism involved with each item you prepare puts you into the mindset you want to achieve before you even get started. It is for this reason that once you get around to the actual meditation, you are already halfway to your goal and will have little trouble achieving your target results.

Zen is.


to understand other people….to be aware
to understand animals….to be a decent person
to understand plants….. to be a refined individual
to understand the mushroom…to be enlightened
