Awakening of the Illuminated Heart (ATIH)



A couple weeks ago I attended a lecture at the Kabbalah Centre where the teacher discussed the importance of opening our Hearts (and minds) to the wisdom in others. It's easy to fall into the ego trap of thinking that a particular person has little to teach us, maybe it's someone with a "lower consciousness" (total ego trap) or less prestige, etc. The truth is we can learn things about ourselves and life from everyone and anyone. When we think about that, the Aha! Moments start appearing en masse. Not sure why I mention this now, but last week I went to an intensive Heart Healing workshop that is probably one of the best I have ever attended, even if the school's beliefs are in some ways diametrically opposed to my own. There were so many things that made sense and I would love to cover them all, but the class was just too darn long.

Here are the highlights:




  • The class is called Taller DESI in Mexico (in the USA, Awakening of the Illuminated Heart by The School of Remembering). It looks at healing the emotional body so we can bring our energy into the present. Out of the mind and to the Heart, where we can listen to our intuition and use the mind's analytical skills to iron out the details. "Follow your Heart but take your brain with you" (Alfred Adler)
  • Among other things, we went through a number of meditations that made it very easy for us to connect with Nature, with the Universe and then to center in the Heart, using its energy to create the life we deserve. This co-creation idea resonates with me 100% and I've already written loads on manifesting here, here, here and here. I'll be experimenting with this technique the next few weeks, so stay tuned! To learn the Illuminated Heart's process yourself, sign up for a class or read Drunvalo Melchizedek's' book, Living in the Heart: How to Enter into the Sacred Space within the Heart
  • The technique involves New Age concepts like the Merkaba (Merkawhat?), Ascension and other ideas that I was fuzzy on prior to the class. The way I understand it, personal ascension means that we become more zen in our approach to life. You put things in perspective, ground yourself and are less likely to be shaken up by events that might have been stressful before. There's also a global aspect to this, which is when enough of us have become peaceful, collaborative, conscious and proactive, that we're not creating chaos anymore. This resonates as all of my posts leading up to the New Year were on the role we play in achieving peace and prosperity on Earth. It's on all of us, quite literally. 
  • This workshop was run by Rafael Kassillas and Paola Marquez, two fantastic teachers who have both been certified by The School of Remembering in Arizona. Thank you both for a wonderful workshop! 


My favorite exercise was one where we connected with our Inner Heart. It's not unlike the GAPP process that I learned at the School of Intuition and Healing. You ground yourself in Mother Nature, connect with the Universe and then centre in the heart. In Healing School, the goal is to draw on healing energies from both sources and channel them to the client, whereas Drunvalo's idea is to connect with both, ground in the heart and stay there. We were supposed to receive an influx of love from the universe, but instead I felt like it wanted to give me power. Creative power, manifesting power, who knows? It made me nervous and I didn't want to receive it. What if I hurt someone? This made me think of a book I read last year: The Essential Dalai Lama. In one of his essays, the Dalai Lama mentions that we block our creative power because we are scared of what we might do. This is why Buddhism encourages compassion and mindfulness; our thoughts have consequences. The idea is to plant a conscious seed so that we generate positive karma in our lives and our communities. There are plenty of similarities between Kabbalah, Positive Karma and this Ascensionist co-creation. Maybe this is where I need to focus my attention. 

If you'd like to learn these techniques for yourself, there are certified teachers all over the world. Find them through the School of Remembering's website here, or read Drunvalo's book: 
Living in the Heart, it's available on Amazon. If you live in Mexico, visit Taller DECI's Facebook Page for available sessions.
