How does devotion figure into my meditation?
What inspires devotion in your heart? Is it God, Goddess, Spirit, evolution, “Big Heart”, Love, the universe? Whatever it is, you can allow it to deepen your spiritual devotion and connection to your heart simply by silently repeating, “I am open to receive,” while simultaneously imagining yourself “breathing” Spirit into your heart and your heart expanding. Rather than repeating it as a mantra, however, just repeat it as your heart leads.
This engages you at an uncommonly deep level to not only evolve in consciousness, but to grow in your commitment to surrender the ego in selfless service as well.
Another way to tap into the power of the heart is to allow yourself to emit deep feelings of gratitude and love for the object of your devotion.
