THE OPENING OF THE UPPER HEART CHAKRA is a crucial part of prolonged spiritual development at a profound level. There are many people who are intuitive but few who trust their ability. For you to have come this far means that you are very dedicated to your soul development. It means you have the personality self in check, so the soul energy can expand.
This is now the most exciting part of your expansion. Fear starts to take a significant back seat and life opportunities start to open up. You are less and less held to ransom by other people’s behaviours and manipulations. You can ‘observe’ better, rather than find yourself drawn into things that don’t match your energy.
Negativity will be feeling like a thing of the past and doesn’t occupy your world very much.
The push to really enjoy yourself and expand into your purpose will have begun.
Self care and the upper heart chakra
If you imagine your heart chakra in the centre of your chest is split into three sections, there is the upper, middle, and lower heart centre. The lower will have been an active energy to heal at the start of your development cycle. This was triggered by a desire to gain an understanding of yourself. Often it is the start of a new cycle, a desire to heal or to learn about healing. Some of the opening signs occur such as an increase in psychic activity or a deep longing for connection. Relationship flaws start to show when the lower heart centre starts to heal. You start to feel either distanced from loved ones or a feeling of desperation bounces up to the surface. You may find yourself behaving in ways you don’t particularly like. The responsible Intuitive-Sensitive Person in you then seeks to heal.
This is the point at which the middle heart chakra energies start to ignite. These merged with the lower heart chakra energies can be rather confusing. Part of you desperately wants something to change and another part is really scared at this point. The middle heart chakra seeks truth; the things that resonate. The angelic realms are very appealing at this stage. They offer comfort, safety and love. This is the beginning of true self love and is experienced through the energy of the angelic realms.
The upper heart chakra bursts into life as the desire for deep self care takes hold. The experience of the angelic realms becomes strongly entrenched in the system. As this happens the fascination with angels and healing begins to wane and the push towards a deep understanding of the self blossoms. This is the point at which we begin to experience the greatness of who we are. Trust becomes something we accept; new relationships in terms of important friendships and support ignite. The draw towards contribution and helping others becomes unstoppable. People are drawn towards the certainty we ooze. We begin to worry less about what others think and start to really want to enlist ourselves in a life that reflects who we really are.
When we shift into the upper heart chakra
The shift into the upper heart chakra opening begins with tremendous emotional courage to keep going, even though we’re afraid. Siobhan had experienced many challenges. In her childhood she saw a lot of violence in her family. In her adult years she experienced violence within her relationships. By her early thirties she acquired health complaints to the extent where she was unable to work. Siobhan’s belief in herself was very low, by the time I met her she was deeply resentful of her past.
Siobhan soon discovered that in actuality she was experiencing some of the shifting energies of the lower heart chakra; the beginning of the healing process. Before long she was pushing herself into a deep healing cycle. As the lower heart chakra began to heal, she found herself going through a tearful time and many changes. As she entered the energy of the middle heart chakra, she wanted to let go of the old energy of resentment and stop blaming others for her disharmony. She began to be responsible for her feelings. As this happened she accelerated her development ten times over. Within a relatively short period of time she entered the energetic realm of the upper heart chakra.
In her life, Siobhan began to take more risks and bold ‘heart’ centred decisions. Facing her fears, she started to push herself and forgive aspects of her past. She forgave herself for taking on the energy that created hurt in her body. She faced herself and began to ignite something bigger and brighter than her self-doubt. As she chose to embrace a ‘faith’ in herself she began to enter the realm of the upper heart centre.
Today, Siobhan has her health problems under control. They are not cured but they no longer run her life. She began her own psychic circle. It started as a handful of people; it is now a weekly group of twenty people and growing. She is proudly working in an area of life she loves. The people I have spoken to whom she has inspired out of their own personal ‘hole’ is an amazing sight.
Siobhan’s experience translated is simply a person entering the energy of the true self. For other people that shift might mean changing where they live, losing weight (and keeping it off), living where they want, healing past relationships or achieving inner contentment. The balance of the heart centre can happen in many different ways.
The shift into the upper realms of our heart centre energy starts with a willingness to face our heart shadow. These are the parts of the self that hold back love through fear of rejection. It all starts with the confidence to properly feel your feelings and let go enough to trust in the deeper, loving part of our energy.
