Embraced by immanent divine love

I’ve discovered a point of consciousness inside me that is forever content, blissful, trusting and at peace. This is what I understand to be heart energy. I can access it at any moment; it’s only difficult to find when my rational mind is working overtime. In my experience, this energy seems to have two locations – in the area of the heart chakra, as expected, and also in the area of the third eye chakra. Perhaps these two energy centres are very intimately connected, so if one is energised it naturally stimulates the other? This point of consciousness brings calm in any situation if I can access it. It causes my body to stand erect – straightening my spine; and at the same time, it relaxes my muscles. It makes me take a deep breath and smile. As well as absorbing this heart energy, I can also radiate it outwards to others through the power of my intention, and for this reason, it enables me to remain open to people I interact with, irrespective of whether the relationship is good or bad. It is, I believe, a quality of being which is spoken of – albeit in different ways – by many religious and spiritual traditions. Tapping heart energy and then holding your intention to radiate it out of your third eye chakra is referred to by some energetic practices of Eastern origin as smiling through your third eye.

When I practise smiling from my third eye, I find the tension drains out of my face, my breathing becomes deeper, a physical smile draws itself on my lips and I feel content and accepting. It’s really an incredible technique; very simple, yet extremely powerful. Being in touch with heart energy can enable us to speak from a higher level of mental consciousness – less subject to the chimeras of the monkey mind – and to listen with empathy. It requires, and in turn stimulates, non-selfishness. As such, tapping heart energy is a source of healing, comfort and acceptance. It’s, in a way, a higher expression of unconditional parental love because by tuning into heart energy we allow ourselves to be embraced by the arms of the divine love that innately resides within us – or rather is us.

  1. Sam this excerpt is so beautifully written. Just the mere mention of ‘Heart energy’ lifts and spins both heart and soul. The feelings, colours and music that arise fill me with deep happiness and hope. I’m with Lily as I nearly fainted in delight (again!) as I read, ‘When I practise smiling from my third eye …’ Oh such heavenly bliss! I just sat down and tried this exercise and it worked almost straight away! Thank you so much for the timely reminder. I love how you write books in search of wisdom and enlightenment and share that knowledge to all so willingly.Your writing style is gorgeous, so open and invitational to the reader … you trust the process, flow and open to the embrace. Beautiful!

    That’s it I’ve got it! The richness of your writing for me echo’s many of the ancient poets, Rumi comes to mind … for reading your words is often an ecstatic experience … apologies if that sounds crazy but I find my chakra’s merrily spinning and singing to each other whilst doing so. I will definitely order this your second book as my internal Like Button is all aglow! If you find the time do check out my latest blog post for more on that topic … I think you’d enjoy the read and lastly on the subject of books I hope you enjoy a certain poetry book that’s winging its way over to you as we speak. Blessings, Deborah.

    • Dear Deborah, wow, I feel incredibly blessed to receive your exceedingly gracious comments. It means a lot to me because I feel the authenticity of your words. Your feedback is hugely encouraging to me. In line with your excellent post on the internal and external like buttons, I would say that my motivation for writing comes from inside me (what I call my “inner urge”). Although my aim in writing is not to receive praise, it means a lot to me when I find resonance with a reader and when I feel that I have been able to share something that was helpful. Feedback from people who have read my texts also helps me to contemplate further and continue to tread the path.
      Btw:The postman has not left his offering yet 😉 but I got an email notification that the stork is on its way. Love & blessings, Sam 🙂


  2. You’re an incredible writer Sam, I love reading your words, all of them and look forward to ‘She Who Is Unto Herself’ arriving next week … Oh happy days! Thank you for all your kind-hearted and generous feedback, means a lot to me. ‘Resonance’ perfect word choice … maybe our Storks will cross each other in the skies. Blessings, Deborah 🙂

    • Thank you for your kind words, Deborah 🙂 My stork arrived during my morning meditation 🙂 Normally, I would not have answered the door given the timing, however, I had the insight it was a certain book of poems. I’m going to take my time to savour your creativity as I find poetry to be a bit like time-release vitamins 😉 i.e. the insights come not just immediately after reading the pieces, but throughout the day as the words and vibrations penetrate into the depths of one’s being. The poems I read today, as expected, resonated strongly with me – on the topics of love and friendship. I look forward to reading more. Thanks so much for venturing further with my own work. I really appreciate your trust and interest. Blessings, Sam 🙂


  3. “less subject to the chimeras of the monkey mind” is one of my greatest challenges. How much does interfere with the ability to listen with empathy, to let go and stop grasping and pushing away based on the “ego” – another way to perceive non-selfishness. The monkey mind can not only keep us from healing, comfort and acceptance, but set us on a path further away from these essential states of becoming. Awesome post.

    • Thanks so much for your kind words and for adding your perspectives on the challenges of the monkey mind, including the fact that it “keeps us from healing, comfort and acceptance”. I agree with you. The process of liberating ourselves from this state of mind and being isn’t easy, but awareness is the first step. Warmest wishes, Sam 🙂

  4. Beautiful post, Sam. You are so correct about the energy in both the Heart and the third eye chakras. I have disciplined myself to raise the energy to first my Heart Center, then with deep breathing and closed eyes, focus the energy to my third eye. When one lives from this perspective, a deep calm prevails. I call it my Bliss Zone. I experience this and more many times with my camera. Nothing else exists except Mother, my camera, and me. With Love, Amy ❤

    • Lovely to get your feedback, Amy. Thanks so much. It’s really valuable to me because my writing is based largely on personal experiences and contemplations, so it’s very helpful to hear if other people have had similar experiences. Btw: I love the name “Bliss Zone” 🙂 Love & blessings, Sam 🙂

      • I understand, Sam, more then you know. I value feedback as well although most of my comments on Petals are towards my photography. I really do not write about my experiences as you have, yet I have them. Within comments to others, higher consciousness and what I know of it I do write about. Not everyone is open to how I live my Life and in order to reach as many as I do, I have to “muse” so that each can interpret in his or her own way. Are you still with me? LOL And yes, LOVE that Bliss Zone!!! 🙂 Much Love to you!! ❤

      • Yes, I think it’s important to speak the “language” of our specific “audience” if the intention is authentic communication and openness. Our “message” can be the same but “wrapped up” in different formats according to who we wish to connect with, enabling the receiver to remain receptive to it and find meaning in it. Love & blessings, Sam 🙂
