HEART AND CHILDRENIt is very easy and natural for children to open their hearts. You can guide children in the Heart Strengthening and Feeling exercise found in our webpage www.open-your-heart.net.nz.Children also enjoy doing Open Heart Meditation/Prayer. Supporting children to be in their heart can help them tremendously. It can expand their creative abilities, help them to manage their emotions, improve behavior, enhance interpersonal relationships and help them to realize that true happiness comes from within.If children do not learn to experience the joy of their heart, they are at greater risk of looking outside of themselves for happiness. This can lead to chasing desires or engaging in unproductive behaviors, in the hope of finding contentment.
While practicing to be in your heart, you can put on music and come up with creative ways to have fun with your children. After your children are able to experience the nice feeling in their hearts, it is wonderful to give them the opportunity to guide you to be in your heart.
Children love to see you smile and be happy. The more you smile and let your heart be happy, the more your children will enjoy.
How wonderful it is when we are role models for our children, showing them that our hearts are the key to happiness, love and joy. What a gift to share your hearts with each other in a deep and meaningful way. How blessed are our children to realize and feel the experience of sharing love.

The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart ~Buddha
(With permission from the Padmacahaya Foundation)Preparation StepsEach time we have negative emotions, we place negativities within our heart even though the negative emotions were not expressed. We have many different types of negative emotions that we experience on a daily basis. Therefore, there are a lot of negativities stored within the field of our heart.When we begin to open our heart, we also begin to cleanse our heart. In order for our heart to open bigger, we have to cleanse our heart by allowing the blessings of the True Source to help.
Only the True Source can bless our heart because there is a direct connection between our heart and the True Source. No other being can bless and cleanse our heart.
Opening our heart is universal and applies to all religions and faiths. Feel free to replace the words, “True Source” with whatever name you use that represents the “Source of Light and Love”.
In Open Heart Meditation, there is a part where you will be asked to forgive all people who have done wrong to you. Write down the names of the people who have done wrong to you or let your heart recognize who needs forgiveness. This will help you later during the meditation.
It is important to forgive people who have done wrong to us in any way. When we do not forgive, our heart is closed and we are the ones who suffer from our unforgivingness
We also want to ask forgiveness for all of our wrong doings, which includes all of the times we have not been of service because of our words, emotions or actions. You can write a list of the wrong doings from the past that come to your awareness.
As we are asking True Source to cleanse our heart from negative emotions, in the process, there could be different kinds of cleansing reactions such as crying, screaming, etc. Do not hold these negative emotions, just let them go. Remember, you are not making new negative emotions. You are letting the blessing release negative emotions that had been stored within your heart.
Open Heart Meditation/Prayer
After reading the words, just stay relaxed, smile and follow the feeling.}
True Source, thank You for all of Your Blessing, Love and Light.
