What is The Meditation on Twin Hearts?
Meditation on Twin Hearts is based on the principle that some of the major chakras are entry points or gateways to certain levels or horizons of consciousness. To achieve illumination or cosmic consciousness, it is necessary to sufficiently activate the Crown chakra. But this can be done only when the Heart chakra is sufficiently activated. The Twin Hearts thus refer to the Heart and Crown chakras.
The Heart chakra is an energy center in front of a person’s chest. It is the energy counterpart of the physical heart. The Heart chakra is the center for compassion, joy, affection, consideration, mercy, and other refined emotions. The Heart chakra is a replica, or twin of the Crown chakra. When you look at the Heart chakra, it has twelve petals, similar to the twelve petals which form the inner core of the Crown chakra.
The Crown chakra, on the other hand, is the center of illumination, or divine love, or oneness with all. It is situated on top of a person’s head, providing energy for the brain and the glands therein. When the Crown chakra is sufficiently activated, its inner core of twelve petals unfurl, open and turn upward like a golden cup, golden crown, golden lotus, or golden flower, to receive spiritual energy which is distributed to other parts of the body.
When the Crown chakra is highly activated, a halo is produced around the head. During meditation, the Crown chakra rotates so fast it appears as a brilliant flame of light on top of one’s head.
The Meditation on the Twin Hearts was first introduced in Grand Master Choa Kok Sui’s book, The Ancient Science and Art of Pranic Healing (1987). Since the Meditation is a powerful tool in bringing about world peace, Master Choa has granted permission to disseminate, reprint, copy, and reproduce the Meditation with proper acknowledgment.
What Happens During The Meditation On Twin Hearts?
When a person does the Meditation on Twin Hearts, divine energy flows down to the practitioner, filling him or her with Divine Light, Love and Power. The practitioner becomes a channel of this Divine energy.
Spiritual aspirants who have practiced this meditation for quite some time may experience being enveloped by dazzling, sometimes blinding light. In addition, practitioners may experience divine ecstasy and bliss, and a feeling of oneness with all creation. This has been a common experience among advanced yogis and saints of all religions, and can be verified through their holy scriptures.
This blinding, brilliant, and dazzling light is known as Heaven Ki in Taoist yoga, or the pillar of light in ancient Jewish Kaballah traditions. To the Indian yogis and saints, they call this pillar of light, the Antakharana, or spiritual bridge of light.
The Meditation Procedure.
1. Cleansing Exercise
Cleanse the etheric body by doing simple physical exercises for about five to ten minutes. During the exercise, light grayish matter, or used-up prana, is expelled from the etheric body. Physical exercises also minimize possible pranic congestion since the Meditation generates a lot of subtle energies in the body.
2. Invoke for Divine Blessings
The invocation is important to one’s protection, help and guidance. Without the invocation, the practice of any advanced meditation technique can be dangerous.
3. Activating the Heart Chakra
Press the center of your chest (heart area) with your finger or a few seconds. Then concentrate on the front heart chakra and bless the whole world with loving-kindness. The blessing should not be done mechanically. When blessing the entire earth, visualize it as a small ball in front of you, being filled with dazzling bluish pink light. During the blessing, visualize people smiling and filled with joy, faith, hope, and peace. Visualize enemies reconciling, embracing and forgiving each other. You should also personally feel joy, happiness, and peace filling your entire being while blessing the earth. Do not direct this blessings to infants, children or individuals because they might be overwhelmed by the intense energy generated by this meditation.
4. Activating the Crown Chakra
Press the top of your head for a few seconds. Then bless the planet earth with loving-kindness from the Crown chakra. Feel the same positive energies you evoked in step 3.
5. Visualize brilliant white light
Visualise brilliant white light from your Crown chakra blessing the entire earth.
6. Blessing with both Crown and Heart Chakras
Bless the earth simultaneously from both the Crown and Heart chakras with golden light. This will align the two chakras and make the blessing more potent. Feel the same positive energies you evoked in step 3 and 4.
7. Achieving Illumination
For illumination (expansion of consciousness), visualize a point of dazzlingly white light on top of your head and simultaneously chant mentally the word AUM (Ah-omm–), or Amen (Ah-mennn–). Concentrate on the intervals or gaps (moments of silence) between the AUMs or Amens, while maintaining your concentration on the point of light. Do this for about 10 to 15 minutes. When you can fully concentrate simultaneously on the point of light and on the intervals between the AUMs, you will experience an inner explosion of light.
8. Releasing Excess Energy
After meditation it is important to release all excess energy by blessing the earth through your hands, with light, loving-kindness, peace, and prosperity for several minutes until you feel your body has normalized. Continue blessing if you still feel congested, otherwise the excess energy may cause headaches and chest pains. The physical body may also deteriorate in the long run if there is too much energy in the etheric body.
