Connecting to Your Heart Center

Hello! My name is Deni Van– if you don’t know who I am; I am a spiritual body breath mind coach. I facilitate the spiritual awakening process.

Recently I was able to spend some free time with the members of my community and had some fun with angel and tarot card readings. A card was drawn and it got us discussing the Heart Center or the Heart Chakra.

The Card read “Your angels are reminding you that love is the heart of the matter”. The thing with love is that many of us are a little bit confused with the word love and maybe even a little tainted with the word. So let me explain just a little bit what I mean by love versus what many people think what love is.

There are two loves- just like there are two parts to us! There’s the noun love and the verb love.  We all know, very well I may add, the verb love. It’s conditional love- “based on these conditions I will love you and if you behave in a certain way that I don’t like I will withdrawal my love from you”- this is the verb love. This is where we have conditions where we may be loved today but, that can change at any time.  Most of us know this kind of love all too well.

What most of don’t understand is the noun love- unconditional love. No judgement, no conditions, just pure, unabiding love. “Your heart is the center within your physical being attuned most to love”. Notice we’re not talking about your mind; our minds are attuned to the verb love. Our heart is attuned to the space of love- the noun form of love; unconditional love.

It’s safe for you to love and be loved with an open heart”. How many of us have put a mental block on our hearts because of an experience where we’ve programmed ourselves to shield our hearts from having this kind of experience again? We’ve put this block on our hearts that we can’t be loved- we need to let go of the mind. We’re being reminded to let go- that’s it’s SAFE to let go and allow ourselves to be loved.

The mind is what keeps us in the mindset of “no- I’ll be hurt” because it can’t let go of these past experiences of “love hurt me”. The verb hurt you- someone else’s actions hurt you, not love. Loves hold the space, holds you, guides you and leads you, all from within- in your heart.  In this card our angels are telling us that “it’s safe for you to love and be loved with an open as we stand by with perfect protection and guidance”.

If you’ve been on this journey for a little bit you may know about chakras- if not that alright I can explain just a little bit. Chakras just means wheel and these are energy centers throughout your body. So when we’re talking about heart center we’re not actually talking about the physical heart itself that is off to the left of the chest. The Heart Center is the middle of your chest- the center of our being really.

So, above the heart we have three chakras- the throat, third eye and the crown which connects us to all that is. And then below the heart, we have three lower chakras- the solar plexus, the sacral and the root which connects us to the earth. The Heart is in the center. Whereas the chakras above flow to all that is and the chakras below that ground us- the Heart Center in the middle expands out. There is no limit to the Heart Center.

Think of love as an unlimited expansive space. I will cover this in another blog but, think of it this way- love is like the sky and it hold space for all the clouds to do their thing. The sky isn’t like “Oh I don’t like you clouds get out of here”- no. It just holds the space for whatever is happening without judgement or opinions. This is the unconditional love that your angles are guiding you to.

Now, one big question that came up is “how is it that we can work on our heart center?”

Give up the idea that you need to work. Your Heart Center needs no work 😉 (Love that we go over topics like this in our group Heartfelt Awakening Village!) A lot of times when things like this come up, whether that be current emotions or traumas of our past, we start to become blinded from seeing or moving from our Heart Center. I work with some of my members and clients with EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to work on the Heart Center to learn to recognize where we perceive from.

So for example, let’s say anger issues are coming up; we’ll use EFT to tap on and recognize what is happening. Anger clouds the Heart Center, so we’ll tap on the heart and say “Even though I am experiencing this anger and this anger is making my body and my mind react” (really reflecting on what is happening within the mind and body) we’re actually looking at what is happening within the body and not suppressing these feelings and emotions or reactions. Suppression can really limit the Heart Center, causing all of this to just resurface again and again. So by facing this, recognizing and even talking ourselves through these experiences and choosing yes! “Yes! Even though I am experiencing this pain and tension, even though I am experiencing this anger and emotions even though I have been through this trauma or wrong doing- I CHOOSE to STAY in the stillness of my being.” Recognizing this movement and choosing to remove your attention and instead stay in the stillness and safety of your being. This is transcending. This is direct work on the heart center. How powerful!

I would love for you to join us in this! Topics like this come up a lot in our group! Our group is a private, safe and judgement free zone to be able to connect to yourself and if you choose to connect to a community of like-minded spiritual awakening seekers. I would love for you to dig deeper with us at the Heartfelt Awakening Village.

May your day be full of Blessings!

Our weekly Spiritual energy healing

This is the highlight of the week!

Begin by entering the space of Stillness. You are invited to let go of the movement and come into the stillness.

Beginning with my purpose, may we all move from this clear space of stillness.
Opening up the space and allowing our light to shine.
Using the pendulum to read the energy using my cheat sheet. Starting with a general clearing and a general reading for those watching live and those watching later.

The two types of love. The verb love and the noun love.

Daydream regularly. The difference between the verb love and the noun Love. Understanding the difference between foundational love and conditional love.


Spiritual Energy Healing 28 Feb 2018

Today we are using Angel cards for guidance. Come into your space of stillness.
The Child is reminding, you care deeply about children, however ALL children, including your own inner child require love, affection and attention. The space in innocent. Allow your heart to open.
Remembering we are already whole.

Relationship to connect. When coming into relationship, not having expectations will keep us open. Be aware of bringing old expectations into new relationships because it clouds our ability to see clearly. Instead we are looking through a lens of what should be instead of see what is right in front of us.

The importance of grounding. Recognize your spiritual gift. Always coming into stillness with meditation and ending with the energy flush.

Please join for more in our group Light Beings Assembly

Energy Healing Circle 7 Feb 2018

Energy healing circle 7 Feb 2018

Always starting from the space of stillness.

Depression came up. Take time to find out where you are perceiving from.

Relationship is discussed. First and most important relationship is with Self.

Fear is brought up. Fear is movement. If we can see fear from the stillness of the Being, we see clearly that it is False Evidence Appearing Real. Fear can prevent you from discovery the space of the Being. We begin to see the illusion of fear that keeps us in the movement.
See the fear from the stillness of the Being.
We have the option to let go of fear. The fear is watched and seen from the stillness of the Being because it is in movement.Starting at the root chakra today and working to the crown and the energy flush.
The energy of trauma and the difference between being the victim or the survivor. Giving yourself internal space by transcending the experience.
