Divine Connection Through Our Hearts

Divine Connection Through Our Hearts

by Meryl Chodosh-Weiss

Do you find it difficult to establish flow, experience joy and creativity in your life and relationships?

When we find ourselves disconnected from the essence of our Divine nature, our hearts become closed and we are unable to experience bliss in every moment of our lives.

Most importantly, when we feel separated from our innate Divine connection, we often experience life as dry, isolated, lonely, meaningless and frustrating.

We focus on our breathing, our mantra, whatever we can to silence the continual stream of distracting thoughts and negative feelings that keep us from experiencing peaceful meditations and harmony in our lives.

What if the basis of enlightenment, accessing all the riches of the universe, peace, harmony and flow stems not from our minds and somewhere outside of us, but somewhere else?

Buddha said “The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart”.

Recent research by the The Institute of HeartMath (IHM) Research Center and technological advances in how the human mind-body system is able to be studied reveals that the heart emits the strongest electromagnetic field in our body. This electromagnetic field is five thousand times stronger than the brain’s electromagnetic field; it envelops the entire body and extends out in all directions up to several feet outside of the body. Research shows that as we consciously focus on feeling a positive emotion it has a beneficial effect not only on our own health and well-being, but it also can have a positive effect on those around us.

Our hearts are the very first organ we develop in the womb. When we call our attention to the “heart of the matter” we are focusing on the essence, in fact, our essence.

The “shift of the ages,” the shift in consciousness that we are now experiencing, is a movement from duality into oneness. It invites us to live from the oneness, connectedness of all creation in our hearts.

There is a personal power in us that is only available when we move from the duality of our brains (the two hemispheres) into the unity of our hearts, our cores.

The scheduled repatterning during the World Repatterning Summit will shine light on whatever we are ready to clear from our mind-body systems so that we can move into living from our hearts and connecting there with the Divine within us all.

President

This topic couldn’t be more timely for me at this time in my life. While this is the last President letter I will write for the Journal, this stepping down opens the door for me in many ways. Not just professionally as leading this Association but in my personal life.

I have been on the RPA Board for 8 years, 3 of them serving as President. It’s time for a new era of consciousness for the Association. I have written often in these articles that there must be change at the leadership level in order for us to grow and bring in the gifts of co-creation with each other. We are peers supporting peers. I have served enthusiastically on the Board and wish to pass my enthusiasm on to the next set of leaders in this association. As I leave I look forward to continuing to serve on the CEU committee. And more importantly, I look forward to supporting our new Board and wait with anticipation of how they will lead us into the future.

We are making a huge mark on the planet by putting on the RPA Summit this year. We expect that this will be the first of many annual summits and events that continue to put Resonance Repatterning® on the map and become a household name. In many ways, the RPA is reinventing itself by this huge undertaking. We are breaking free of being small, quiet, and unrecognized. WE ARE READY for this undertaking! We ARE reinventing ourselves!

Commitment to leadership has many levels at the Association. Is it time for you to reinvent yourself and serve on any committee? At the February Board meeting, the Board approved to waive some in person CEU requirements. While CEU’s enhance skills that support our Resonance Repatterning practice, some attendance or commitment to obtain CEU’s is still required. Over a 2 year period, 32 CEU’s are required to maintain certification if you are a Certified Practitioner. The Board approved that for every 3 hours of volunteer service, 2 hours can be earned towards the CEU requirement (about 21 CEU’s over a 2 year period).

We hope that this new and exciting incentive will encourage anyone who may have the capacity to step up into a leadership role.

Is it time to reinvent yourself? Is it time to give to your Association as we move into the global arena? Move with us. Lead with us.

With love, gratitude, and appreciation to the RPA Board and all those who have volunteered countless hours over the years to bring the Association to where it is today.

Looking Within – A New Era of Consciousness

Have you noticed all the ways we are being asked to look within? We are no longer able to point a finger and blame someone or something outside of ourselves. When we try, have you noticed that it backfires? For those of you who know what I mean and can relate, you are consciously entering into a “New Era of Consciousness” where ultimately there is freedom, wisdom and, most importantly, PEACE.

This process can be arduous or transformative. We can kick and scream with resistance or we can move into acceptance of  ‘what is.’ We get to say. I love one of the statements that Chloe Faith Wordsworth (developer of Resonance Repatterning®) has in her latest Intention for New Possibility section. It says: “I accept that whatever is not aligned with my intentions emerges for my own growth and transformation.” If we resonate with and really grasp the opportunity in this statement, our lives can be a platform for self-discovery, growth, and fine-tuning ourselves, so we and others can experience who we really are. Our Divine nature will be palatable as we let our light shine.

I know it is not always easy; however, the results are always worth the effort. So, how does one accomplish what I am referring to? When we are up against a challenging situation, the first step is to breathe, slowly and deeply in through your nose and out through your nose. This activates the parasympathetic nervous system for calm and relaxation. From this state of calm, we can respond rather than react, which always brings more of what we want. We can tell the person, “I need to take a ‘time-out.” I am having a reaction to what you just communicated, and I want figure out why so I can take responsibility for my reaction and respond from a loving place.” If communicated in this manner, the other person gladly agrees so they can do the same. The question you might ask yourself is, “What happened in the past that this resembles?” The unresolved event usually pops in and we come to an understanding, and this alone can transform the situation. Coming back together, you can both share what you discovered and love is restored.

When I look at the earlier experience from my reactions, it helps when I ask myself, “Did they really intentionally try to hurt me, or sabotage me?” The answer is usually, “No.” Putting myself in their shoes, I have more compassion and understanding, which brings me release from the past so I can be free and return to love and experience more peace. You may want to consider doing the same.

This takes practice so be gentle with yourself. When we can share our vulnerabilities and shortcomings it opens others to do the same, which leads to more intimacy (into me, you see), and ultimately more love. Welcome to the “New Era of Consciousness!”
