Opening the Heart Chakra - Meditation on Twin Hearts
The Twin Hearts Meditation technique developed by founder of Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga, Master Choa Kok Sui, is singlehandedly the most rewarding and useful loving-kindness meditation I ever stumbled upon. I recommend it as a daily practice to all people dedicated to spiritual development.
The Twin Hearts Meditation entails stimulating the Heart and Crown by sending blessings of light and love through the palms to a visualized Earth in front of the meditator.
MCKS taught his students to recite the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi in combination with the visualization. The aim of the practice is to open the Heart Chakra through blessings of Lovingkindness, which in turn opens the Crown Chakra allowing for the descent of spiritual energy.
MCKS stated that during the Twin Hearts meditation, the twelve inner petals of the crown chakra turn upwards like a chalice or golden cup. An immense amount of light is emitted from the downpour of spiritual energy. A person with visual clairvoyance would perceive this light as a halo around the head and a fire atop the crown.
MCKS revealed that "when the crown chakra is highly activated, the clockwise and counterclockwise rotation of the brilliant golden energy creates the optical image of a golden lotus flower. The upward movement of the golden light produces the golden flame on top of the head. The activated 12th Chakra is seen as a golden ball of small flame which is called the pentecostal fire in Christian tradition."
Acts 2: 1-4
"When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them."
Katha Upanishad Stanza 4
"Spirit the size of a thumb, like a flame without smoke..."
With an activated heart chakra, the meditator has access to limitless compassion and wisdom, while an activated crown chakra grants access to cosmic consciousness. This relationship is illustrated in another passage from the Bible.
"And we have come to know and believe the that God has for us. God is love; Whoever abides in love abides in God, and God in him."
Love is the doorway to illumination. We always receive more of what we give. By giving blessings and loving-kindness our hearts and minds are in return blessed and purified!
