ASIACT Astrology - October 2012
And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
The effect of human emotion on our body’s health and immune system has long been accepted in spiritual traditions throughout the world. Since the nineties scientists have been exploring and documenting not only the power that human feelings have over the body but also the role these emotions play in creating our world. Interest has also grown into determining where emotion and feeling seem to originate – the human heart.
The heart is commonly viewed as the seat of the emotions. In Latin, emotions were described as 'motus anima', meaning literally 'the spirit that moves us'. Any of the eighteen bottles with green as a fraction could support us to build our capacity to manage our emotional arena and obtain greater mental clarity (panoramic awareness) for more effective decision-making and problem solving. Within the rainbow of our being, the colour green refers to the energy field surrounding our heart. Green is a secondary colour made up of the primaries blue and yellow: by combining the higher will with our individual will, the joy of our inner life force with faith and trust, we experience the harmony within our heart.
With the latest in measurement technology, Western science is now exploring the possibility that the human heart contains its own intelligence (independent from the brain) that can be a source of guidance for our individual lives and for realising our collective potential. And that's not all...it has been documented that there is a doughnut-shaped field of energy that surrounds the heart and extends five to eight feet beyond the body. Although this heart field is not the aura or the prana described in Sanskrit traditions, it may well be an expression of the energy that begins in this area. (Greg Braden)
The field around the heart connects us to a subtle matrix of energy form which is unlike anything we've known in the past (that's probably why scientists took so long to find it); this field appears to be like a tightly woven web and not only creates the container for the universe to exist in but also connects all that is. And to think that our hearts and our feelings connect us to and have an effect on the fabric of creation! And right on cue Bottle 3, Heart Bottle/Atlantean Bottle, blue/green 'offers us the possibility to become more peaceful in relation to being upon the earth, within physicality....This bottle also represents a transition to the fourth dimension which concerns our relationship with time... the ability to be present within the self, to be more aware.
Any bottle with a green fraction could support us to create a space in which the mind quietens, enabling us to shift our awareness to our heart area and focussing on positive emotions – a state of mind called 'coherent emotion'. 'Space to find the wisdom within the depths of yourself is the fulfilment of the direction of the conscious mind'. Mike Booth reflecting on the combination of green and gold in Bottle 31, The Fountain.
Silence creates an opportunity to listen to our hearts and the messages these may be conveying individually and in resonance with other hearts. Using the green supports us to create the space where we are able to hear (a word encapsulated in 'heart') the amplification of another voice, a voice beyond the human one; the voice of nature, the collective voice.
To Aristotle the heart was the seat of the soul. Let your heart look around: are you communicating from your heart? Are you creating in or destroying the world given to you? Our hearts hold the answers.
'The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know'. Pascal
