Exploring the Emotion of Love
☑ Define what love is and what is not
☑ Learn about the heart and emotions
☑ Engage in a mediation to feel love
Do you often wonder if what you feel for another is love? Or do you wonder if you are acting in love? I do. I wonder about many topics. Love, is a topic that I am currently reflecting on. Reflecting on love can often be challenging. I live a busy life that diverts my attention away from love to the day-to-day tasks or the mini emergencies from work and family. Staying in stress and anger has become more instinctual than love. To take a moment to reflect on love may seem unimportant but it should not be overlooked. Research has been done on emotions and the heart. Emotions can affect our heart health. There is also an energy around the heart. Awareness of that energy helps to monitor emotional reactions. The Heart Meditation Moment is a meditation to bring awareness to the heart, to love and loving expression in the world. The expression of love can ultimately help the physical body and all relationships.I have observed my emotions and the link to the sensations in my body. The more we know and act in love the better for our society. Some people think they know what is and some people don’t. In this course you will begin to define love, learn about the heart and emotions and engage in a simple heart meditation to feel love.
