It was my experience that the Self was to be found in the “seat of the soul.” That is, the Self or soul “resides” in the deepest reaches of the heart.
I found it after descending, in meditation, down into the heart as far as I could possibly go on Sept. 18, 2018. I’d literally reached the back wall of the heart. And there was the Self, innocent and pure.
I don’t want to go into the whole story of how the experience was truncated so I wouldn’t go off to a cave. The important thing is the treasure map: The Self is to be found in the heart. Seek it in the heart. X marks the spot.
A few days later, Archangel Michael confirmed my experience:
“You have journeyed to the depths of your soul, to the depths of your core. … And you have discovered, not lack, not criticism, not error, but beauty. Underneath the dross is the full beauty, the power, the gentleness, the sweetness of who you are. ” (1)
Are there any other statements from the Company of Heaven that also confirm the heart as the seat of the soul? It’d be useful to show that looking upon it that way is not a mere figure of speech but an actual reality.
Yes, Matthew Ward confirmed it in 2008: “Your heart [is] the seat of the soul.” (2) And the soul is the same as the Self. So your heart is the seat of the Self.
On another occasion, in 2017, he quoted the God of this universe:
“In one of God’s talks with my mother, He told her, ‘The heart is the seat of the soul.’ The composition of the soul is the energy of love and it is in the heart area where the love sensation is felt. It’s with good reason that you say, ‘I love you with all my heart,’ and add little heart symbols to love notes and send heart-embellished valentines to people especially dear to you.” (3)
Matthew confirms it implicitly in another of his messages:
“The spiritual level on which you will change your leaders from being darkly-ruled themselves to people worthy of being leaders – true leaders with spiritual integrity – is within your hearts. That’s your usual depiction of where love resides, is it not?
“Actually, the sensation of love is a province of the soul, but it has strong physical effects at the heart that instantly spread throughout your entirety to uplift you in spirit, mind and body.” (4)
Is that not pretty much the same as saying love is found in the heart; it must flow; and we get to experience it as it flows through us?
Matthew informed us that focusing on the heart as the seat of the soul can bring us spiritual rewards, which certainly coincides with my experience:
“Remembering that the heart is the ‘seat of the soul’ and envisioning yourself as a glowing star [i.e., the Self] can fill you with the sensation of BEing part of the celestial spheres.” (5)
It can also leave you drowned in an Ocean of Love. I believe that everyone’s experience is custom-tailored to their own spiritual beliefs and ideals. Certainly mine have been.
Looking upon the Self at the seat of the soul filled me with an immense sense of well-being, purity, and innocence that was entirely new to me and definitely a step upward. In Buddhist terms, I was looking at my original face.
And it was temporary. Michael advised me if I wanted to remain in service, then “visit; don’t stay.” (6)
Finally, Michael speaking through Ronna Vezane suggests that the heart is where we’ll find all good things:
“Within your Sacred Heart Center you will find wisdom, compassion, patience, and most important of all, unlimited Sacred Love. … This very moment, as you move into your Sacred Heart Center, you can experience the profound love and compassion of our Father/Mother God and the Supreme Creator. …
“We have stressed over and over again, one of the greatest challenges, yet one of the most important tasks to be accomplished in order to step onto the spiral of Ascension, is to maintain a focused point of awareness within your Solar Power Center. In doing so, you will maintain an open passage into the Sacred Heart − thereby allowing the Creator Light to flow freely to and from you.” (7)
Thus it’s by no means a mere figure of speech to think of the heart as the treasure box containing the spiritual wealth we seek. The treasure is to be found two digits right of the breastbone. Dig deep.
Take your awareness on a journey as far into the heart as you can go and see what awaits you there. You have the map. You have the right address.
