Life can get heavy sometimes, and we often feel pain in our heart center, when we hold on to our hurt. If you need help opening your heart and letting go of the past, your heart chakra could use some extra love. Sound is so powerful a medium for bypassing our conscious mind and transforming stuck emotion, so we’ve put together a list of 3 powerful meditations to heal your heart chakra using your “F” crystal singing bowl. See which one resonates with you, and use the power of sound to deepen your journey towards wholeness.

… you find yourself struggling with difficult relationships, romantic or otherwise… 

Relationships, whether they are with your partner or an acquaintance, can be difficult to manage when there is conflict or hurt involved. Practicing compassion, forgiveness, and healthy boundaries can help your heart stay open and allow for others to show us their best selves. Expecting the best from others can also help others step up to the plate and remember their highest intentions. 

….you find yourself having a hard time letting the past go. 

You do not have to replay trauma in your mind by holding on to the feelings it triggered within you and reliving it over and over. If things are within your control to change, then your hurt may be an indicator that your spirit needs this change. If things are not within your control, then practicing acceptance allows us to create a better current reality for ourselves given our new parameters. The more time and energy you spend reliving the past, the less you can be present and take charge of your life in the now. Your spirit already lived the past. A little daily meditation (even if it’s only for 5 minutes) can help trigger your mind to remember this moment and not get stuck in moments that already happened. Keeping things fresh and trying new things that inspire you, no matter how small, can help you remember the refreshing feeling of creating new, positive memories.  

….you find yourself struggling to forgive others. 

Remember that we are all struggling. We are constantly learning how to balance our own needs, and how to deal with our fears, self-doubt, pain, and insecurities. This can help you look past your own perspective. Putting yourself in others’ shoes can help increase your compassion and decrease your attachment to grievances.

Doing things you love every day, practicing self-care as part of a daily routine, and doing things for others can all help you recharge the energy of your heart chakra and invite nurturing into your heart. Doing things for others is important because it can actually help you step away from the weight of your own problems, connect with others and discover that we all go through similar emotional journeys and that we are not alone.  However, becoming an adult and having responsibilities of taking care of others does not mean you need less love. We deserve nurturing, just the same as when we were children. So, allowing someone else to be there for you or learning to treat yourself with softness and compassion is not just a good idea, it is essential to maintaining a clear and light heart center!

A Healthy Heart Feels Like…

…profound love for yourself and others. 

You are overflowing with love for life and understand that all of life is connected and the same energy manifest in different expressions. 

…peace with your past.

You forgive the hurt that others caused you, as well as the hurts you caused. In other words, you understand that life is an opportunity for expansion and that we are all growing and learning on this journey together.  

…safety and trust. 

You feel safe to trust others and are receptive to the love they are excited to share with you.

3 Powerful Heart Chakra Meditations to Use With Your F Crystal Singing Bowl

As we mentioned in your Heart Chakra Sound Guide, your F crystal singing bowl can be such a powerful way to enhance your heart energy. So we’re including 5 crystal singing bowl meditations to open and charge your heart center below.  

Visualizations can really help our mind connect with our energy field and work through any blockages we might feel. For each meditation below, make sure you are following these fundamental first steps: 

FUNDAMENTAL STEPS TO MEDITATE WITH YOUR F CRYSTAL SINGING BOWL… 

  1. Find a comfortable, relaxing place where you’re not likely to be disturbed. 
  2. Sit and breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth for a few minutes. As your F crystal singing bowl sounds, feel your body relax. (Make sure you have a bolster or meditation pillow to lift your hips and allow your spine to be straight but your body relaxed.)

The more you can move attention to breath awareness, the more you can potentially release. When our hearts are closed and the body anxious, our breathing is shallow and constrained. So, make sure your chest is out, and allow your breathing to slow and deepen. It’s amazing what these seemingly simple changes can do to calm the mind.

1) Foundational Heart Chakra Visualization   

This is a great meditation for every-day heart chakra self-care. 

STEPS 1 & 2 (Follow the fundamental steps above.)

  1. Imagine that you’re  drawing a stream of green light up through your body towards the heart. Start at the base of the spine and work your way up through your chakras. Let the energy move up higher and more fluidly with each spin around your singing bowl, keep a steady, calm pace.
  2. Picture that light solidifying into a beautiful, bright emerald ball of energy hovering over your heart chakra. With every breath, sense the ball becoming bigger and brighter. 
  3. As you focus on the light and sound, tune into a feeling of unconditional love for yourself and others, as the light pervades your whole body. Sound is a medium for channeling energy, so the longer you continue playing the crystal singing bowl, the deeper and more easily your mind can stay in this meditation, and the more you will be able to feel the energy of love flowing back to you, as you send it out with each rotation around the bowl. Stay in this meditation for at least 5 minutes until you can really feel the energy of love washing over your entire body and emanating from your F singing bowl.

2) Heart Opening Meditation  

STEPS 1 & 2 (Follow the fundamental steps above.)

  1. Take a moment to focus your attention on your heart center. The heart center helps us to get in tune with our feelings, so become aware of any feelings that may arise. Don’t judge what you feel or try to feel anything, just observe what already is present for you in this moment.
  2. As you breathe in and slowly sustain your crystal singing bowl, imagine unconditional love emanating from your bowl. 
  3. Ask your heart what it needs to say and hold that gentle space for it to speak to you as its ready. 
  4. Sit and listen to the emotions that come up for you for at least 5-10 minutes. If strong emotions rise up, just focus on the beautiful tone and loving energy of your singing bowl, until the feelings pass and are transformed by the intention of sound and love. chimes and dreamcatchers

3) Forgiveness Meditation

STEPS 1 & 2 (Follow the fundamental steps above.)

  1. Focus your awareness on your heart center, and picture a beautiful emerald green energy of unconditional love, exuding out into the world from your heart.
  2. Set an intention of forgiveness, and allow your heart to gently bring to your awareness what it wishes you to forgive yourself for. 
  3. With each slow full stroke around your singing bowl, tell yourself, “I forgive myself for _____. I am grateful for the lesson it taught me. I will now let it be a part of my growth.” Do this until each feeling subsides. 
  4. After  you go through each feeling that arises, chant “YAM,” at regular intervals as you continue sustaining the singing bowl, to recharge and connect to your peace.
