[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: February 2001]
[Hector07] I would like to know if you could perhaps give me some insight into how to open up my heart Chakra some more.
We will attempt to respond to this as personally as we can in this forum, but we are generally limited to responses beneficial to your little group as a whole.
The “problem,” in this case, is not directly the result of a “closed” Heart/Emotional Center, but rather the restrictions on the Higher Emotional and Higher Moving Centers. You have been challenged on many levels within these Centers, leaving you with a great sense of disconnection from others and great challenges in understanding “where the love is” in many people’s actions. These are fundamental questions you are seeking to comprehend this lifetime.
Many of your most intimate associations have been your greatest teachers in terms of contradicting everything you ever expected of love and intimacy. In the process, you have “closed” much of what might be reflective of a healthy 2nd and 6th Chakra, with the “heart” center being the most obviously imploded. Your Higher Intellect and Intellectual Centers, then, are carrying much of the processing of this lifetime, seeking grand reasons and insights and truths behind all that exists. But this is simply a pendulum swing in your growth and comprehension, not an indication of your conclusions. You have necessarily “closed” much of your feeling, vulnerabilities, sense of intimacy and responsibility in certain arena for purposeful healing.
As you continue in your latest matedness, enduring the adventures and emotional drama that is part of that, you are actually opening these Centers commented on. You are learning that there can be drama, excitement, adventure, without your having to “pay a price” emotionally, though the emotions moved to the surface as a result may be “old” and seem to be generated from the present, they are not.
We therefore state that the very concern you have with your questioning about the opening of the heart Chakra is, indeed, an indication of its movement toward balance.
There are many other angles and responses we could have to this open-ended question, but we believe this will do for now.
