During his journeys in infinity, Bob Monroe came to understand that we, in our world, are charged with refining the heavy, raw materials of love, which we are all endowed with, into a very high-frequency, subtle energy that can traverse the highest levels of subtle being.
If we consider that life is a progression—from living in a densely packed energy container, known as a physical body, to a more subtle high-frequency energy state known as the soul body, as we transform from physical to pure spiritual existence when we die—then it is self-evident that the love we experience in physical form must be refined to a much higher subtle vibration to continue to accompany us in our evolutionary journey beyond physical life.
We are all programmed at birth to seek attention. Receiving “good enough” attention initiates the journey of refining our love potential. If we survived childhood, the most basic need of feeling loved, regardless of how compromised, was satisfied enough to allow life to progress.
Love in these primal stages of life is highly dependent upon the provisions of sustaining material resources and consistent, connected caretaking. The lower chakras of the human energy system are the centers connected to love in this dense physical form at this stage of life. Thus, the safety of a secure home, together with the nurturance of caretakers, is the focus of love.
Childhood is a stage of normal narcissism, as the dominance of one’s dependency requires one to see others as need-fulfilling objects. The existence of other as a separate being, with their own needs, requires a physical and emotional maturity unencumbered by the dominance of outer dependency.
The bridge between the lower and upper chakras is the heart. The heart is the major transformer of love, from dense material dependence to the lightness of connection beyond narcissistic need. Just compare the heaviness of sadness and anger at unmet needs to the joy and exuberance of sharing with a resonant being.
How does the heart perform such a transformation of love energy? First and foremost, it is necessary to allow oneself to feel one’s feelings within the containment of the heart. Typically, the intense emotions of need, wanting, and disappointment burst out from the solar plexus, bypassing the heart, landing at the throat chakra, seeking verbal expression.
This energetic rush often causes the throat to lock, like a tripped electric circuit overwhelmed by the intensity of energy presented to it. Unrefined emotions are either trapped in the throat or result in powerfully expressed verbal demands upon others.
Emotion felt in the caldron of the heart can be transmuted through heart centered breathing. Breathing into and out of the heart performs a netting effect that Jan was taught during a meditation, where a net runs through the heavy clumps of emotion, promoting a lightness and free-flow of energy.
With the heaviness of emotional energy somewhat lightened, one is freed to recapitulate the experience that generated the intense emotion. Generally, one discovers that the root of the issue is a perceived slight to one’s value and self-importance by the actions of another. This is a stirring of the lower chakras, still attached to needs requiring material response or attention from the other person.
With refined heart-centered awareness, one’s adult self can extend loving compassion toward one’s younger self and engage in a process of helping it achieve full acceptance and understanding of the truth of its life lived. Releasing all energy of being offended, in the cauldron of the heart, as well as attending to one’s own primal needs, raises the vibration of love energy, allowing it to smoothly rise to the throat chakra and beyond.
This purified love can be expressed to another person without need for reciprocation, as the state of loving compassion radiates in one’s energetic field. This is the love that rises higher and higher in loving compassion for all beings. This pure radiance is sure to attract similar energy in resonant traveling companions.
This refined love grasps the interdependent oneness of everything and is capable of extending itself to caring for the needs of the planet, and all beings, regardless of their shortsightedness or dominant narcissism. This is the love that can help inorganic beings to release their attachment to the physical world and continue their journey forward in their energy body.
This is the love that has no need to reincarnate, as it is fully available to continue to refine as it navigates toward ultimate wholeness in infinity.
The heart is the most important technology center in which to produce this high-frequency love vibration—truly the ultimate key to the kingdom.
In loving compassion,
