Wholeheartedness

The Embodiment of Divine Love
"Human beings pine for divine love in this world without which life is empty. When the love is intense, unconditional and devoid of expectations, it transforms into divine love. True fulfillment and unbound joy can come only from divine love." - Paramahamsa Hariharananda – Indian yogi

I do not believe it is possible to truly love or be loved unless we heal on the inside.


Healing our heart centre and having an object of love is vital to the quest for wholeness, happiness, love and joy. In meditation last week, I was presented and overlaid with a huge heart. I sensed that this emblem related somehow to the journey I had recently taken to my own centre and that it could also possibly represent a personal breakthrough in my understanding of love.


The message which accompanied my symbol? “Healing the heart is paramount.” Later that day, I recalled that I had kept a log of inspired messages that pertained to the relationship between healing and the heart centre.

  • The HEART is the way to the soul.

  • You need HEART to heal effectively.

  • Heal from the HEART.

  • Release the HEART essence which is pure, simple, beautiful.

  • The HEART gives service.

  • An aching HEART achieves nothing.

Healing the heart chakra balances mind and body. It starts to release some of the negative issues associated with a heart that is wounded, impaired, dislocated or hurt.


The effects of grief, loss or fear respond well when a focus is placed on healing the heart.


Self-love, courage and power can be restored when working with the heart, which presents a platform for integrity, self-acceptance and a taste, even the slightest hint, of unconditional love. It is rather curious when you see a symbolic representation of a person's heart which points to the condition and state of their spiritual, emotional and mental health and wellbeing.


Here are just a few I visualised:

  • A proud, plump and radiant red heart which had a bright blue light emanating from it.

  • The image of an ornately gilded cage appeared beside the heart. The image reminded me of a beautiful, small bird with a shrill and charming song.

  • Another heart appeared shrunken, pale and dull brown in colour. It was stone-like and the term “hard-hearted” came to mind.

  • The next was heart-shaped but flat, rather like a deflated hot water bottle. It subsequently transformed into a 2-D pencil line drawing.

  • Yet another heart was shattered but in soft, fine particles. It had the energy or ‘voice’ that expressed a yearning for wholeness and to once more be complete.

The heart is a storage place for love but also for psychic wounds which involve the cellular memory and emotional charge of the hurt or harm done to you by another person – perhaps someone you loved and trusted.


Heart vows made in past lives can be carried over and also affect your present life in a restrictive way.


For example, a past life vow of poverty can prevent a person from prospering in this life, whilst a former vow of chastity can create difficulties in relationships. Paul Pearsall, a psychoneuroimmunologist and clinical psychologist, describes the heart as “having an intelligence of its own” and how the more he focused on his chest and heart, the calmer and more confident he became after heart surgery. In his book, The Heart's Code, he states,

“By exploring the possibility of a heart’s code, we may be able to begin to build a bridge between the biomechanical wonders of modern medicine, the spirituality of ancient traditional healing systems, the various alternative or complementary medicines, and the wisdom of religious scholars and spiritual leaders. It is not likely that we will be able to understand all the forms of medicine in the world until we are willing to broaden our understanding of the world. By doing so, we may not have to select from among all the models of healing. Instead, perhaps we can combine them into one world medicine made up of all the wisdom about the brain, body, energy, information, the spirit, and the soul. With sufficient patience, tolerance, creativity, a more inclusive view of the human system as it interacts with all systems, and perhaps most of all, with a more open heart and less defensively reactive brain, we may be able to combine the rigor of science with the subtle wisdom of the heart…”

So speaks the voice of science! Although challenging and difficult, it is possible to heal and awaken our hearts for our own freedom, spiritual growth and the open- and whole-heartedness to be truly compassionate and to help others.


If truth be told, the possibility and hope for divine or unconditional love is enough of an incentive for me. With love, Chiedza Chashe www.urbansoultherapy.com
