Tapping the source involves moving out of your head and into your heart to find the source of true happiness.
The heart is the main organ of our physical body, its continuous beating crucial to our survival. It is also the centerpiece of our astral body.
We have seven major chakras starting from the base of the spine (root chakra or mooladhara) to the crown of the head (sahasrara). The heart chakra lies in-between the three upper and the three lower chakras.
Rather than balance each chakra individually, if you focus on balancing the heart chakra alone, the remaining chakras get aligned automatically.
This is so because the 'heart region' covers an area much bigger than the physical size of the heart and encompasses the entire body, including all other chakras. In fact, certain meditative practices consider the heart region more prominent than even the mind region.
They believe that since the heart pumps blood out to every cell in the body, meditating on the heart is the most effective way of bringing positive change to your entire being.
So, how do I start tapping the source?
Become mindful of the breath
Meditate on your heart
Stay in the present
What happens once I tap the source?
Magic. I am afraid, but no better world comes to mind to describe the experience.
Coincidences, rather synchronicities, will become a regular part of your life. Expect to find help at every turn. Whatever it is you are seek will manifest itself in your environment. You will just have to be attentive enough to see it.
You will realize that you are neither alone nor abandoned, but well-loved and cared for at all times. The source or the universal consciousness will support you on your chosen path. It will guide you and direct you, if you are just open enough to receive its help.
How will I know I have tapped the source?
The moment you feel one with all existence, even fleetingly, is the moment in which you'd have tapped the source. It is your connection to everyone and everything in this universe.
The feeling of oneness, connectedness and of being something larger than your own body and mind is one of transcendence. It is the same feeling that yogis aspire for.
There is no reason to worry if you find this feeling missing from your experience.
Although the connection may not be obvious to you in the beginning, meditating on the heart chakra invariably connects you to the source. Over time and with practice the feeling of oneness and of transcendence will become an integral part of your daily experience.
