Follow your Sacred Heart
Awaken the Alchemical Rose
to activate the wisdom of your Sacred Heart
By Maria Mar
Your Sacred Heart knows beyond time and space. It penetrates mysteries your mind cannot comprehend. It’s healing powers are extraordinary. Your Sacred Heart is a powerhouse of electromagnetic energy directly plugged into the heartbeat of Earth Mother. It encompasses Female Gifts such as your intuition, your Soul’s deepest desires, your Heart’s Intelligence and the greatest power of all: your love. The Path of your Sacred Heart moves you from struggle into Grace, from separateness into Oneness and from Incoherence into harmony with yourself and the universe.
The Sacred Feminine School of Wisdom encourages you to trust and nurture this wisdom to create with ease and grace.
The Bewomaningtm Experience reveals the Alchemy of Vulnerability and empowers you to master Emotional Alchemy and Coherence, so that you can use your Sacred Heart as a compass to make decisions that are align with the truest expression of your Soul.
Your Heart is one with the Earth’s Heart
The earth’s magnetic resonance vibrates at the same frequency as the human heart rhythms and brain waves. Your heart is one with the heart of Gaea!
Recent studies show that global human behavior can be affected by solar and geomagnetic activity. Our own bodies are made of the same elements of the earth and are thus affected by the same conditions that affect Earth Mother. In fact scientific research has documented that the moon rules the flow of fluids (ocean tides as well as individual body fluids) and affects the unconscious mind and dreams.
An example of this is your menstruation; which if you connect to the Moon and do Moon Lodging becomes entrained with the cycles of the moon.
The menstrual cycle is the most basic, earthy cycle we have. Our blood is our connection to the archetypal feminine. The macrocosmic cycles of nature, the waxing and waning, the ebb and flow of the tides and the changes of the seasons, are reflected on a smaller scale in the menstrual cycle of the individual female body. The monthly ripening of an egg and subsequent pregnancy or release of menstrual blood mirror the process of creation as it occurs not only in nature, unconsciously, but in human endeavor. In many cultures, the menstrual cycle has been viewed as sacred. – Dr.Christiane Northrup, M.D.See more.
Your Sacred Heart, like your womb has a lunar aspect. It can touch the unknown in the Sacred Mystery. It can dive deeply beyond the visible and knowable. Like your womb, it gives you psychic abilities and alchemical powers. While the womb is seen by the Sacred Feminine School of Wisdom as the Alchemical Cauldron, the Sacred Heart is seen as the Alchemical Fire or, as we will see in a moment, an alchemical flowering.
Are you smiling or softly nodding as you read this words?Does something goes off inside you? I call this the Bell of Truth, when something resonates with my heart and I simply know that it is true.
Your Sacred Heart holds this wisdom as it beats with the heart of Earth. Just like a baby lives in deep connection or symbiosis with its mother and recognizes her heartbeat; you too feel her rhythms and cycles in your own heart. Therefore your Sacred Heart has the capacity to be your Personal Compass, guiding you in your life path and harmonizing you with your own rhythms as well as connecting you with the cycles of Earth Mother and Mother Moon, so that you walk in harmony with the Universe and with your unique purpose within this world.
However, you have two hearts and if you follow the wrong heart, you will get lost. Look at any area in your life where you are trapped in old dramas, and you are following the wrong heart in that area.
Shocker: You have Two Hearts!
Yeap, you heard right. You have two hearts. Let me explain.
From a shamanic viewpoint, the heart that most people refer to when they are engaged in their personal dramas is a false heart.
I call it the Second-hand Heart because it is an emotional carcass laid over your Sacred Heart during your Domestication Trance. It carries your learned and inherited dramas, sentimentalism, fears and toxic emotions.
This heart leads to addictions, obsessions, panic attacks and other fear-based emotional behavior, soup opera dramas and co-dependence. All this behavior is simply a distraction from touching and hearing your true heart ~your Sacred Heart.
Your Sacred Heart is the seat of your Soul. It is the heart beneath the heart, the one that whispers instead of screaming. I call this the Infinite Whisper. You know that little voice. It is the voice that tells you to take an umbrella because it will rain and you answer with your logical mind “the weather report said it would be sunny,” so you don’t take the umbrella, and then you get wet.
The Powerhouse in your Heart
The heart is approximately 60 times greater electrically and up to 5,000 times stronger magnetically than the brain. This awareness places the brain relatively weak in comparison to the heart. In addition, the heart has its own intelligence that informs the brain and every organ and cell.
What this means to you is that for anything to change in your life, it first needs to change in your heart. You can know something in your mind, but that’s not going to make a true change. Your conscious mind will be telling your brain to do this or that; but if your heart is carrying your old programs (this is another way of saying that you are following your Second-hand Heart); then this transmission is being sent to every cell and organ in your body. That’s like trying to run a large computer program in an old computer that does not have the processing power for it. It’s not going to happen!
Only when your desire or new belief is activated in your heart can it inform your entire organism, broadcast a strong signal and attract what you desire.
Scientists are just now understanding the significance of the heart’s electromagnetic field and how it impacts your emotional states and your health.
Heart Coherence is when your heart and brain are working synergistically together. It is a state of harmony in all your organs. Your brain waves are flowing smoothly, in soft arcs. When your heart is going one way and your mind in the opposite direction, you suffer from Incoherence. If you look at your brainwave frequency, you will see a jagged, irregular brainwave pattern. This causes high levels of stress. When you are incoherent for a long time, this prolonged stress is likely to become Dis-ease.
Heart Intelligence is the flow of awareness, understanding and intuition we experience when the mind and emotions are brought into coherent alignment with the heart.
Heart Intelligence underlies cellular organization and guides and evolves organisms toward increased order, awareness and coherence of their bodies’ systems. For more information in Heart Coherence and the Heart Intelligence visit the Heart-Math Institute.
The human heart emits the strongest electromagnetic field in our body. It is donut-shaped and therefore it is called the Toroidal Energy Field.
The heart’s electromagnetic field is five thousand times stronger than the brain’s electromagnetic field. This electromagnetic field envelops the entire body extending out in all directions, and it can be measured up to several feet outside of the body.
Research shows that as we consciously focus on feeling a positive emotion it has a beneficial effect on our own health and well-being, and can have a positive effect on those around us.
Gratitude, joy, compassion, appreciation and other-heart based feelings can instantly create Heart Coherence. I will be talking about emotions as Internal Actions in future articles. For now, understand that the activity in your heart is highly relevant for your health, happiness and manifestation.
The Alchemical Rose
Shamans have known for centuries what science is now discovering: the power of the heart. Some alchemists call it the Alchemical Rose.
When you fill your heart with emotions like gratitude, joy, appreciation and compassion, you are activating the Alchemical Rose. This is shamanic jargon for saying that you are turning love on.
Remember the musky fragrance of The Rose.
It has a potent calming effect in the nervous system. I do my own aromatherapy and it still amazes me how a tiny drop of rose essential oil instantly fills the entire house and brings beauty, peace, love and harmony into my entire being.
The Goddess Mother Creatress has also been called The Rose in some spiritual traditions because she is the perfect essence of pure love.
You have the same power stored in your Sacred Heart; the healing and transformative potency of The Rose. Awakening this power is what I call Awakening The Rose.
Once you dissolve the old carcass of your Second-hand Heart (aka the Soap Opera Heart) and connect to your Sacred Heart, you are connected to your Core Essence, to The Field of Infinite Possibilities, to your Soul’s wisdom and to your Infinite Self. This is another name for who you are as an expression of The Divine.
The Path of your Sacred Heart is the path of beauty, grace and harmony. This is the power of intuition, empathy and revelation. It is a path of ease and grace in which you are in constant communication with the pure love of The Rose (the Goddess).
This is one of the Seven Sacred Feminine Paths, and we invite you to walk this path if your heart longs to experience a higher frequency of love, to release struggle in exchange for grace. It is also your path if you want to Awaken the Alchemical Rose ~ bringing your dream or desire into your Sacred Heart for your manifestation, transformation, fulfillment, healing and happiness.
