Illuminating Your Heart’s Desire is a journey into your heart’s desire. It is an enjoyable process of self-discovery that helps you to connect with what is truly most important, rewarding and meaningful for you.
This guided meditation leads you into the rich landscape of your own desires and needs. The destination is your heart and spirit.
This rewarding meditation enables you to deal with conflicting desires. It helps you to distinguish the desires that can bring you true happiness from those that are fleeting and insubstantial. This meaningful process engages the chakras and the subconscious mind – leading to deep insight and clearing a path to higher wisdom.
As you discover your most important desires, you will learn how to channel energy that is typically diluted by conflicting desires into one meaningful, fulfilling desire. You will complete the meditation by creating a statement of intent (a sankalpa) that summarizes your one, true desire.
This unique, guided journey is an original meditation created by Big Shakti.
Each guided yoga and meditation technique brings you progressively closer to your heart’s desire.
- A Sankalpa is a statement of intention to fulfill a desire, wish, or dream.
- Learn to make a powerful sankalpa that resonates with the core of your being.
- Create and use your sankalpa to harness the vast energy of desire that is normally scattered.
- Experience how different desires arise from each chakra.
- Gain insight and wisdom so that your desires are integrated, meaningful, and connected to your life’s purpose.
Each time you contemplate your life’s purpose, you tune into yourself at a deep level. The best time to do this is in guided yoga and meditation technique when you open up the inner recesses of your being. Authentic self-study allows you to gain true self-awareness and knowledge of who you really are.
Awareness of your true feelings powers your meditation practice towards genuine inner experience. Then your outer life, your actions, and relationships benefit from this unfolding self-knowledge and become integrated and grounded in meaning and purpose. From this place, we can make a powerful resolve, a sankalpa that resonates with the core of our being. Then achieving our heart’s desire is simply a matter of remaining focused and trusting.
Track 1. Talk on Desire and Sankalpa describes the different types of Sankalpa and how to create and practice the sankalpa. It informs you about the nature of desires and how to use meditation to sort through and deal with the myriad desires that arise in the mind to avoid dissipating energy. This talk discusses where desires originate from, how powerful they are, and how they drive our actions. It describes how to overcome the obstacles to creating a successful sankalpa.
Track 2. Witnessing Desires guides you into a direct experience of how desires are an integral part of our thoughts. You are directed to watch the mind and to become a witness to the endless stream of thoughts, emotions, feelings, and desires that arise. You will discover how prevalent desires are and how connected they are to every thought, feeling, and action.
Track 3. Desires and the Chakras guided yoga and meditation technique awakens your understanding of how desires are related to each chakra (psychic center). All thought, emotion, feeling, and desire are linked to one of the chakras. This is why it is possible to have several desires arising at the same time that can be in harmony or in conflict with each other. Desires from the lower chakras need to be aligned and integrated with higher chakras, especially the heart chakra. Then the raw energy of our lower nature is refined and channeled for a higher purpose.
Track 4. Your Heart’s Desire guides you into discovering your deepest desire and linking it with higher consciousness. You are guided to search for that one desire which promises true happiness. You are then guided to link that desire with the highest consciousness at the core of your being. You embed the sankalpa deep into the unconscious mind, the unconscious part of you that has vast power and which continuously guides you to emotional, psychological, and spiritual maturity.
