Many people are not in contact with their hearts – not in touch with the reality that all the love that we seek is forever present within us. So they often feel lonely, even if they are together with other people. And this loneliness is the true loneliness – because it’s the loneliness we experience when we are not in contact with our deepest innermost nature, which is love.
So what can we do about this? Of course there are many, many different ways we can return home to ourselves and discover and cultivate the Divinity within… and here’s one simple exercise, designed to help you get in touch with your heart.
To find and make better friends with your heart – with the Divinity within you – start by sitting comfortably in a nice chair. Then close your eyes and breathe deeply. When you feel comfortable and relaxed, began to focus your attention on your chest area—on the area around your heart. Continue to breathe deeply and let your attention move to the center of your chest and dwell on the area where your heart is. Then let the area around your heart relax. Breathe deeply and feel your chest muscles releasing all tension and relaxing—just feel how your chest seems to open up. As you do this, you will find that your breathing becomes deeper, fuller, and more relaxed.
When you feel a deep sense of relaxation in your chest area, start to notice the characteristics of your heart... Just let yourself dwell on and feel how happy your heart is, how kind your heart is, how truly loving your heart is. When you do this, a great wave of tenderness will probably sweep over you and you will most likely experience a feeling of softness and warmth – or a heart opening as many call it. And this is because you are getting in contact with your own heart, which is the very core of your being, the very heart of you.
So just sit with this feeling and allow yourself to enjoy the feeling—this amazing feeling of love and tenderness as it wells up inside you, in your very own heart, like a glowing ball of Light. If it helps… when you feel your heart in this way, you can picture it in your mind's eye as a radiant, golden glowing ball of Light and Love.
There’s no rush here. No question of making an effort. Rather it’s a matter of just taking the time to relax and allow yourself to enjoy how good this feels. Because it does feel good. Really good! So enjoy the compassion as it flows forth from the very core of your being. Let this energy, this Light and Love gently spread out from your heart to the rest of your body, soothing, healing, comforting you with its delightful warmth and kindness. Then relax and allow all the Love in your heart to simply circulate through your body, comforting and healing you of all cares and worries like a soothing, healing elixir.
If this exercise sounds like a good idea to you, I suggest practicing this exercise for 5-10 minutes a day until you begin to feel and realize the mighty power of your own heart—until you begin to feel connected to the Love that dwells within you. When you start to feel connected to this indwelling Love, which is your true essence, you can extend this exercise for a few more minutes and let all the Love in your heart flow out from you to your family and friends.
When you begin to experience the healing power of Love doing its wonderful work within you and in your relationships, you can send out Love from your heart to your community, country, and to the rest of the world—and see the Love from your heart healing, soothing and comforting everyone it touches. This is a wonderful healing exercise for yourself, for your friends and family, and for planet Earth.

The Secret in our Hearts
So… whether we know it or not, this mystical, magical secret we call Love has always been waiting patiently, right there, in our heart of hearts... But of course, the trick is knowing how to locate it within ourselves—how to find this Love and access it so it becomes a real Force (and not a fantasy) in our lives which we can plug into any time we want. And so that we no longer have to go high-tailing off “into the blue” looking for someone else or something else, outside of us, to give us what we're longing for. Because that Force, that Power, that Love is not out there, not outside of ourselves, though many (most) of us have spent lifetimes of learning here on the Earth plane chasing up and down blind alleys, weeping over noble and tragic tales of romance while we watch TV, eat popcorn, and yearn for that perfect relationship, that perfect romance, which never, ever comes.
So instead of chasing up and down blind alleys, I suggest taking the direct route and turning inward... going through the Gateway to Grace... straight to source ... and plugging right into the Mother Lode...
