Heart Based Meditation is Very Different From Mindful Meditation
Open Heart Meditation™ is profoundly different from “mindful” meditation practices as it is not based on brain-centered exercises, creative visualizations or breathing techniques. Instead, Open Heart Meditation™ focuses on enjoying and following the feelings originating within our spiritual heart, which are always sweet, light, calm, and gentle. The difference between heart based and brain dominant meditation is obvious when we consider the fact that whenever we experience feelings such as love, happiness, peacefulness, gratitude, and longing they are clearly felt in our heart, not thought in our head.
Open Heart Meditation™ is a purely experiential, feeling oriented practice. Enjoyed alone or in a group, the process of opening and strengthening your heart is joyful, freeing, relaxing, and completely natural. This is not a serious meditation practice that involves rigid training, perfect technique, or any sort of effort or hard work. If this heart based meditation is being done properly, it should feel enjoyable and effortless. Smiling naturally is a spontaneous extension of the true joy in our hearts.
