We're in a new stage of heart chakra opening that is causing many people confusion and discomfort. The collective grief over the tragedy that is still unfolding in Japan (and New Zealand and Burma, etc.) has been catalytic but it's more of the same overall process that I addressed here. What is happening right now is, if possible, even more sudden and dramatic. The experience for a lot of us has been physically uncomfortable: racing heartbeat, shortness of breath, chest pains, and pressure between the shoulder blades. It started for me a couple of weeks ago. I have also spoken to a number of clients who are experiencing varying degrees of the same thing. The message I got around this was that the heart chakra was being "ripped open." I have since stumbled on a number of similar observations so I've collected a few different perspectives on this process.
The first is from Lauren Gorgo:
The devastating & recalibrating events that took place in Japan and shook the globe last week, in a very literal sense, were the result of the same energies that precipitated a major heart & plexus opening throughout all of humanity. The energies behind this event caused a massive expansion in the (high) heart, as well as the solar plexus, and this expansion process is creating the new template of love that is now anchoring on the planet. This new love is a combination of empowered love (high heart) & spiritual wisdom (solar plexus)…what the unseens refer to as the activation of the "body brain".
On a physical level, this opening can be felt in the center of the chest, thru the back of the heart and in the pit of the stomach. Symptoms can vary based on our personal collection of energetic/genetic miasms, but generally our solar plexus (third chakra) is linked to our stomach, abdomen, upper GI tract, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidney, spleen and adrenal glands…and the heart center (fourth chakra) is linked to our heart, lungs, blood vessels, shoulders, ribs, breasts, diaphragm, and upper esophagus, and so all of these areas are subject to cellular detoxification during this time.
Some of the more prominent symptoms may be manifesting as tightening/pain in the chest, shortness of breath, anxiety, extreme and unrelenting heartburn/indigestion, acid reflux, nausea, heart-flutters, palpitations, arrhythmia, soreness/sensitivity in detox organs and along the spine. (**NOTE: for the lucky ones experiencing that drop-to-the-floor heartburn, drinking a little baking soda in water is the only thing I have found to put out the fire…temporarily) Also, as these energy centers open more fully, it can also cause great discomfort in the middle of the back where many are unfolding their "etheric wings" (opening the energy center behind the heart)….I am hearing that those affiliated with the first wave of the ascension timeline are affected/afflicted by these energies the most right now.
The second is fromTom Kenyon:
Due to the fact that you are in a Chaotic Node and energies from deep space conjoined with solar flare activity are affecting your energy bodies, you, as a collective, are more affected. What we mean by this is that witnessing the suffering of your fellow humans shatters the heart. There is a recognition that their predicament could easily be yours. This recognition can create an opening in your heart, and it is through the heart—your heart—that higher states of consciousness are realized, and so the earthquake in Japan is, in many ways, an earthquake of the collective heart.
The third is from Karen Bishop and I can't provide a link because it's from a pdf that she emailed out on Sunday. If you're not on her email list and would like to have the whole thing, just shoot me an email, with "Karen Bishop" in the subject heading, and I will happy to forward.
Heart pain, lung ailments, esophagus, and upper back pain are our own individual experiences of readying to receive this light… just as the earth is having her own readying experience. As our hearts open then, they break apart and move old energy out, thus creating inflammation around our heart area. And this is what manifests as unusual pain in these areas. But as always, it is best to consult a professional health care practitioner if own is experiencing a health problem, as not everything can be attributed to our spiritual evolutionary process.
So, obviously, I second her opinion on getting medical help if you feel you need it. Actual heart health issues aren't anything to mess around with.
The other thing that has been coming up a lot is major difficulty with grounding right now. I know, for myself, I have found merging with earth energy downright uncomfortable. The more I try to ground, the less grounded I feel because it's like being electrocuted. It all just feels like fire. So until things settle down (???), I've been more focused on centering than grounding, per se. And this is what I've been suggesting to clients who are having the same type of experience. For me that generally means breathing into the solar plexus. But I would say, do whatever works to maintain your equilibrium. These are strange times, indeed.
