*(Excerpt from the “How to Get Out of the Matrix” online class)
3rd Law Of Gold:
“Gold clingeth to the protection of the cautious owner who invests it under the advice of men wise in its handling.”
Remember, when we refer to “gold” in this class, we’re referring to our own treasure – the treasure within our hearts. This is our “wellspring of life” and it is crucial to guard, watch over, and protect.
We do this through discernment. Discernment is KEY. And discernment is quite different than judgment. Judgment withholds love based on what we believe is “bad” or “good.” Discernment remembers that love is the key to restoration, and rather than withholding it, love sets boundaries to protect the heart from being drained of life, and its treasure destroyed.
Our treasure multiplies as our love multiplies (especially our love for ourselves). If we don’t love ourselves, we have no motivation to protect ourselves – we willingly stay in slavery because we don’t believe we’re worth saving.
Discernment helps us determine how to best spend the treasure in our hearts, in ways that give us the better returns on our investment. Remember, our inner treasure is self-sustaining. If we learn how to use this treasure to guide us throughout life, it is impossible to be a slave to the Matrix, because we never run out of the Spirit of Life.
When it comes to the Matrix, we must learn to discern how to best put our treasure (hearts) to use to protect us from enslavement.
THE POWER OF THE HEART
Our hearts govern our emotions, and emotions just happen to be the fastest and most powerful vibrations – much stronger than thoughts. In fact, the Institute of HeartMath has proven the heart to have its own “brain” – about 60 times more electrically powerfully than the brain, and 5000 times more magnetically powerful than the brain.
Now that’s POWER!
Scientist Rollin McCraty wrote: “The heart is a sensory organ and acts as a sophisticated information encoding and processing center that enables it to learn, remember, and make independent functional decisions,”The Energetic Heart: Bioelectromagnetic Communication Within and Between People.
The mind is meant to protect the heart, not exploit it or use it. And herein lies the problem: Since the “Age of Enlightenment” humanity has placed the brain as the “all powerful” function of human capacity, while the heart (and its immeasurable treasure within) as a mere afterthought – even an imposition to our evolution. This couldn’t be further from the truth. When it comes to emotions, we are still in the Dark Ages.
HEALING THE HEART
A deep wounding has occurred at a very vulnerable level on the planet – it happened at the level of our hearts, our intuition, and our spirits. You could say it is the “feminine” side of humanity (or the feminine principle) and it is this energy that is coming to the surface to be healed.
Your mind alone won’t lead you out of the Matrix of Lack – it will only get you more tangled within its intricate web. Your heart carries the map. This is why it’s crucial to be present, attentive, and non-judgmental towards your vulnerabilities. Forgiveness (of self and others) is KEY to Universal expansion and growth. It is indeed, the key to immortality (aka Heaven on Earth), and therefore, the GATEWAY to stepping out of the control of the Matrix of Lack.
So how do we learn to trust our hearts?
First and foremost, we must remember that our hearts are GOOD. They may be shut down, broken, vulnerable, and misunderstood, but they are our power, and our freedom only comes from the RESTORATION and RELEASE of our hearts from the control of the mind. As the famous saying goes, “the mind is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master.”
Today, spend some time with your heart. Take several deep breaths, close your hearts, place your hand on your heart, and allow it speak to you. Refrain from judging what comes up. What you feel (regardless of what it is – anger, sadness, despondency, etc.) is a MESSAGE for you. And the message is meant to show you where we are on your Life Map. Don’t shoot the messenger. Thank it. Listen to it. If we want to be free from the Matrix, we must allow our treasure to multiply, and our treasure is within the HEART. Don’t bypass it.
Here’s a little message I recorded in the mountains this morning as a reminder for our hearts:
