Meditation of the Month: Absorb senses in the heart

From the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra: “Blessed one, as senses are absorbed in the heart, reach the centre of the lotus.”

This meditation is using the heart principle, which transforms everything into love. It is very important in terms of not only life but also death, because the heart principle is trying every moment to transform any unfinished business into love. Whatever is not fully lived will be purified in the fire of love in the heart

You can use this meditation to awaken the maximum experience of the senses. At any time of the day when you are having a sensorial experience, you can close your eyes for a moment, absorb that experience in the heart and see how it feels. You can also do it as a specific meditation, with a partner:

How to practise this meditation:

Blindfold your partner and stimulate their senses in turn: smell, taste, sound, touch and sight.

Smell: using natural scents such organic essential oils or flowers, wave them in front of your partner’s nose and allow them time to drink in the smell.

Taste: using different foods, offer all the tastes to your partner – salty, sweet, bitter, pungent, sour. If we use all the five tastes this will be very empowering for our life, because a rich and full life contains all these tastes.

Sound: you could use very soft music, or tinkling bells, a soft flute, or so on, simply murmur sweet nothings into your partner’s ear, or sing to them. Make sure you give them an experience of sound, then silence, sound then silence.

Touch: for this you can use caressing, massage, drape a silk scarf or a peacock feather over your partner – whatever comes to mind, be creative!

Sight: put on some wonderful music, remove your partner’s blindfold and do a dance for them. They are simply visually connecting with what they are seeing – you dancing!

Once you have been through all the senses with your partner, exchange. If you are doing this with a lover, it is a really beautiful prelude to love making.

For the person receiving all of these different sensorial experiences, just absorb all of it into the heart, each time.
