Continue with “Nine Hearts,” a Radiant Circuit Hook-up
(see Handout Bank for detailed description):

Connecting to one’s inner stillness, trace 3 large hearts on the torso.

Place hands on the heart chakra with fingertips touching, and affirm:

 

May I step forward lightly…(fingertips remain at the heart chakra)
In peace...(trace 7th heart in auric field)
(rest at the heart chakra)
Joy…(trace 8th heart in auric field)
(rest at the heart chakra)
Compassion…(trace 9thheart in auric field)
And love.(rest at the heart chakra)

 

Inhaling, circle hands—palms up—out to sides and overhead.  Stretching arms high, place palms together in prayer position.  Exhale while mindfully lowering hands to heart chakra.  Center and pause to honor life and all beings.

Affirmations created by Susan Shanley.  Based on the work of Donna Eden and David Feinstein, who describe the benefits of meridian tracing in the book, Energy Medicine (Jeremy P. Tarcher, 2008).  David Feinstein’s Energy Psychology Interactive (an electronic resource, 2004) also lists emotions associated with each of the fourteen meridians.  See www.energymed.org/hbank for full description of “Nine Hearts,” a Radiant Circuit Hook-Up.
