It’s the Season of Heart

Not everyone is a fan of Christmas, it can be a challenging time for many. Even if this is your favourite time of the year, it can get busy and demanding on your resources – money, energy and health alike. So often the question arises: why do we do all this in December and for what purpose?

Mastering Heart-based Consciousness 

Heart-based consciousness, is the new era consciousness – an evolutionary shift we are collectively making right now. Coming home to the heart, activates feelings of love and compassion in an unconditional way. The heart-mind is far more powerful than the brain as it receives information first and then passes it to the brain.

Living in the heart and making true decisions with your heart-mind from a basis of love and intuitive guidance, are key mastery practices. In the heart, you begin to work more with your feelings and intuition to access your truth.

Heart Coherence 

Heart-coherence is a state achieved when you shift your focus into the heart and activate heart-based feelings such as love, caring and appreciation. According to research done by the HeartMath Institute, heart coherence reduces stress and restores health. “Coherence is the state when the heart, mind and emotions are in energetic alignment and cooperation,” HeartMath Institute Research Director Dr. Rollin McCraty says. “It is a state that builds resilience – personal energy is accumulated, not wasted – leaving more energy to manifest intentions and harmonious outcomes.”

In Western Society we have valued the brain and its logical intellect over emotions for far too long. We seem to have overlooked the power of the heart. According to this latest research, the heart-brain is more powerful than the head-brain (thinking brain) and has a vastly expanded electromagnetic field; much bigger than the head-brain and it extends several feet from the body. Our heart energy therefore dramatically affects those around us. When in this space you are more expansive, resourceful, connected and in a state of flow. The heart-brain seems instinctive and intuitive as it senses information in the environment before the head-brain – and even before it happens. This is your own system of future precognition. It makes sense therefore to make decisions from the heart, intuitively; honouring that gut-feel. Heart-based consciousness is the new 5th-dimensional way of being. 

The Link Between Love and Health

At the Institute of HeartMath experimentation with positive intent has shown a boost in the immune system. Negative thoughts like anger, depression, blame and frustration, have been found to suppress the immune system. DNA observed under a microscope tightened up and became shorter, some of the genes were shut down, limiting the range of possibilities we can tap and choose from. When they focused on positive emotions such as love, joy, gratitude and appreciation, the DNA strands began to relax and unwind, allowing an infinite range of inner potential to be tapped. 

Dr Masaru Emoto’s intention experiment proved the same. Dr Emoto, author of “The Hidden Messages in Water” (2004), said that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water. He performed a series of experiments observing the physical effect of words, prayers, music and environment on water. The water would then be frozen to form crystalline structures. The crystalline structure of the water imprinted with positive words was far more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing than those imprinted with dark, negative phrases. If our words and thoughts have this effect on water crystals, just imagine what kind of effect they have on people considering we are 70% water.

By being more love and light-filled, you affect the world profoundly. A master doesn’t change the world by battling with external events. Instead, true mastery is healing and forgiving your inner perceptions of the world and changing judgmental and fear-related perceptions to loving ones, remaining non-attached and compassionate. The master works on the source of the problem, the mind. Mastery is restoring your mind to its natural condition of love and light.

Fifth Dimensional Consciousness 

Heart-based consciousness is transformational. As we shift from head to heart, from separation and ego to true unity, we transform our consciousness from fear-based to love. The 3-dimensional Earth, the plane of karma, is where we experience the duality of light and dark, good and bad, right and wrong, other and self – all the opposites. We learn and gain great insights through experiencing duality. To move into 5th dimensional unity consciousness, we have to integrate all duality in us: head and heart, ego and true self, fear and love. We also have to evolve our consciousness beyond any idea of good and bad or right and wrong or you and me or past and future. The 5th dimension is one of integrated unity, connection, light and love. We finally get the mind out of the past and the future, settling in the joy and expansion of the moment of now. Shifting into the heart, naturally brings you into the present moment where all is well. 

The heart therefore is a gateway to higher consciousness. Through love, acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, compassion, generosity and joy, you open the heart and naturally expand your energy field; your field of consciousness. You then feel your connection with everyone and everything. In a state of heart coherence your energy, good health and youthfulness naturally returns.

The Healing and Creative Power of Love

Our true nature is love, joy and peace. To realise this, we have to identify and dismantle the ego’s illusions, for it is our attachments to the illusionary material world of the ego, especially at this time of the year, that prevents us from experiencing a festive season that is truly peaceful, loving and magical. Opening our hearts, opens us to the true spirit of Christmas – one of joy, connection, generosity, peace, love and goodness for you and everyone around you. Love, compassion and kindness brings profound healing to the giver and receiver alike.

Heart-based Practices

Heart expansion 

In your meditation, bring your awareness in to the Heart Centre. Breathe into it and expand the electromagnetic field of your heart centre. Feel yourself connecting to the source of love and light. 

Group Activity

Embrace the power of group activity such as group meditation, group healing and community projects. Intend that your every activity is for the highest and greatest good of all. 


Bring healing to yourself, others and the planet through visualising and positive thought-intention. Healing takes place when loving high-frequency light transmutes negativity and dis-ease. Healing can be sent over vast distances. Respecting free will, always intend that the healing is in their highest and greatest good. Detach from the outcome, accepting what will be, will be for their greatest good. 


The quickest route to the heart is a practice of gratitude. Gratitude connects you to all the goodness in your life and restores your sense of well-being. A daily practice of gratitude has been proven to dramatically increase your levels of happiness.


Practice the gift of blessing. It evokes powerful divine energy. What you give, you receive.

The 6 Greatest Self-mastery Practices

What currently seems like chaos in the world is only the old defunct systems falling away which is essential as something radically new comes into being. Instead of wrestling with the system or battling the perceived issues in the external world, continue to do the inner work of self-mastery. As you make changes in yourself, change is reflected externally as if by magic. The inside creates the outside. That’s the mastery way of making change in the external world.

The Greatest of all Mastery Practices


There are many reasons for maintaining a meditative practice. Taking time out to still your mind is essential for your health. During meditation you practice energy work to nourish, cleanse and re-energise yourself. Meditation is your time to go within and tune into your intuitive inner guidance. You can clear yourself of your day, let go, cut cords and practice forgiveness. During meditation you connect with your Higher Self and set your intentions. Meditation is your time of restoration, healing, creation, connection and inner-tuition.


If there was only one mastery practice, it would be forgiveness. The practice of forgiveness un-creates negative thought forms. Forgiveness clears perceptions of the past and heals difficult relationships. Forgiveness is healing and creates a clean slate from where you can recreate your universe and all your relationships afresh. Miraculous work can be done with the forgiveness practice of Ho’oponopono. Experience the advanced application of this magical meditation on the forthcoming Self-mastery Meditation Course.


Mastery is taking responsibility for everything happening in your universe. You are the creator of your universe and taking full responsibility is immensely empowering. Anything playing out in your universe that’s not quite according to plan can then be a great source of introspection. When you’ve gained the insights, you can exercise new choices and create afresh, assuring the outcomes you desire.


Accomplished athletes, musicians and artists achieve mastery of their skills through the regular discipline of practice and action. Be equally disciplined about your mental energy and meditative practices. Over time, a regular practice of meditation will still your mind and alter your DNA and your universe in a way that is hugely rewarding.


You are essentially a creator and you create all the time. As you deepen into mastery, you’ll discover your immense creative potential and you will want to create your world consciously through intention and visualisation. Alberto Villoldo describes how the Laika, Inca, Hopi and Mayan people knew that, when they inherited the created world, creation wasn’t finished and that they were supposed to continue the creation process. The elders of these tribes meditate together, envisioning the world they want their grandchildren to inherit. The sages of old called this ‘dreaming the world into being’ (Villoldo, 2005 and 2007). You have the same power, so continue to co-create the world you desire. Continue to create light, good health, peace and joy in the world. Do so through thought-intention, visualisation and by being the light in the world.

Working with the Universal Spiritual Laws

Essential to mastery is a solid understanding and application of the Universal Spiritual Laws. The Laws governing the universe are as natural as the natural laws we are familiar with, such as the Law of Gravity. They are built into the fabric of the universe, reflecting the primary intelligence of the universe and are the guiding principles upon which the whole universe operates. They keep the universe and everything within it, in perfect order. One such Law is the Law of Cause and Effect. When we understand the Universal Spiritual Laws, they can guide us on our path and dramatically speed up our evolution and ascension. It is through the understanding and application of these laws that we can achieve mastery of our lives. These Spiritual Laws form part of the esoteric wisdom teaching of ancient Egypt, Israel, Greece, India, China and the like. Yet, the knowledge of it has somehow stopped being passed down and kept secret. If people knew they are in complete control of their minds and therefore their destiny, they would no longer be controlled by the governing, monetary and media systems of the world. Fortunately, modern quantum physics has also been proving these ancient principles to be accurate. Quantum physics allows for the quantum field of energy; a nothingness from where reality is constructed. The Foundations of Mastery can assist you in deepening into your understanding of these Universal Spiritual Laws. Through the application of these spiritual and natural laws, you can master your own life and create your own destiny.
