This Audio Essence contains the vibration to instruct your Heart Protector Meridian to close, like a drawbridge rising up, to protect the inner castle of your Heart space.
Once the Heart Protector is closed, then it is much, much harder for any negative or lower vibrations (or people) to enter into your innermost energy space, and so you are less likely to be disturbed by negative people, situations, or events.
Note: The following information is a section from my ebook Energy Boundaries – How to Protect & Affirm Your Personal Space – Volume 1 by Brian D. Parsons.
Sometimes it can feel like we are totally open and exposed to all the negativity and bad feeling of the world around us. Just by switching on the television news, all the negativity comes flooding into our homes. But there are some people who are so sensitive, that just walking out through their front door exposes them to all the negative energies of the world around them… and it can feel like they are walking around with an exposed raw nerve where their Heart is.
Fortunately, our individual subtle energy body is not without its internal defence systems, which can protect us and keep us safe from psychic influence and manipulation… but only if they are functioning correctly.
Within the meridian system, the most important of these is the Heart Protector Meridian (also known as the Heart Constrictor Meridian, or the Circulation-Sex Meridian).
Personally, I prefer to use the name Heart Protector meridian because it points to its primary role and function, to protect the Heart from psychic influence and intrusion from external parties.
In Chinese philosophy and medicine, our Heart is believed to be the most important organ of the body. It is considered to be the seat of our Soul and Mind, our energetic core and centre, all of which are not considered to lie within the realm of our Brain.
The ancient Chinese likened all the 12 meridians to officials within the imperial court, giving them different roles and status. But for them, the Heart could only be linked to one individual… the Emperor, the most powerful and important person in the whole of the land.
But where does an Emperor live?
Does he live in a mud-brick hut, without guards, on the edge of the empire, from where he might be kidnapped by any passing nomadic tribe, who would then have direct influence and control over the empire?
No. The Emperor lives in a fortified palace, surrounded by guards, generals and armies who have all sworn to defend him… and the same is also true for our Inner Emperor, the Heart organ and Heart meridian (which together makes up our Heart space).
There are three meridians which are assigned the task of protecting the Heart from external infleunce or attack, and the most important of these three is… yes, you’ve guessed it… the Heart Protector Meridian.
In life, we don’t want to be too open… because then we just suck up all the psychic crap from other people… but neither do we want to be totally closed, because then it is like being stuck in an emotional prison, which can be an isolating and lonely life.
So we are at risk if we are too open, and in emotional pain if we are too closed.
In the real world, we therefore need some kind of protection that we can raise and lower, appropriate to the situation we find ourselves in.
This is where the Heart Protector meridian comes in.
I always describe the Heart Protector meridian as being like a drawbridge on a medieval castle, which we can raise and lower, as needs must. The innermost part of the castle represents the innermost part of our Heart, the juicy, warm, sacred bit.
We can raise the drawbridge (Heart Protector) whenever we sense that an enemy is close-at-hand, thus closing down access to our inner self.
We can also lower it when we feel that we are in the presence of people whom we love and trust, so that we can share our love, warmth and uniqueness with them (and vice versa).
However, the problem arises with the Heart Protector when the metaphorical hinges on which the drawbridge move, or the ropes that raise / lower it, become damaged in some way, and the mechanism no longer works correctly.
Either the drawbridge remains open and cannot close, or it remains permanently closed, and cannot be opened.
Unfortunately, when this happens, we remain open to those who would harm us, and who come to see us as an easy meal, or closed to people who we want to love and trust but cannot emotionally connect with (and who then, unfortunately, start to believe that we are emotionally cold, unresponsive, closed off, or just not interested).
Why should this be?
Well, in Chinese medicine, the Heart Protector meridian is associated with our psychic ‘radar’, our psychic ‘early warning’ system. The Heart Protector is meant to help us differentiate between friend and foe, and help us to know who we should let in to our Heart space, and who we should slam the door on. Unfortunately, if the radar associated with the Heart Protector is a little off, then the whole process is thrown into disarray, and we cannot tell friend from foe, we do not know who to be open or closed too.
But do not despair. It is possible to re-train the Heart Protector meridian, and this is what this particular Audio Essence can help you to achieve. If you are someone who is too open energetically, then this Audio Essence contains the vibrational command to close the Heart Protector while you are listening to the track.
In particular, people who have the Sun in Libra, or lots of planets in Libra in their astrological natal chart, are prone to going around with their Heart Protectors too open. What these people need to do is learn to close their Heart Protectors to all those people who want to manipulate them for their own selfish ends, to all the psychic negativity in the world… and only open their Heart space to the people who love, support, nurture and resonate with their wavelength.
Using this Audio Essence perhaps once a day for a month, and then as / when necessary, will help such people re-train their Heart Protectors to be more fluid in the way they respond to external circumstances… and it can be a relief for these people to discover that they do indeed have options… they don’t need to go through life with the Heart space exposed to the world… they don’t need to go through life with a raw and exposed Heart.
Also, if you have been in a situation where you have had an unfortunate encounter with someone, and taken on their negative energy… then when you can… sit down, listen to this Audio Essence… and as you do so, imagine that you are firmly closing the door of your Heart on that person, you are effectively shutting them out of your Heart space.
It’s a bit like the virus software on your computer. Your computer comes with the software pre-installed, but you have to learn to keep it running so that it can protect you. For some people who are highly sensitive and energy aware, for some reason they have forgotten that they have super-powerful, anti-virus energy software already pre-installed in their energy field… but once they remember that fact, and start to use it effectively. Wow! That’s when you start to see people take on a new lease of life, and let go of many of the limitations which have been holding them back.
Many people go through life believing that being highly-sensitive is a curse… but when you start to switch on your inner defence mechanisms, and protect yourself from all the negativity from others, that’s when you start to glimpse the many and glorious blessings which also go with being highly sensitive and energetically aware.
There are also certain professions where the Heart Protector meridian, over time, can become locked into a certain ‘state’, either too open or too closed.
To be an effective counsellor or therapist requires that the Heart Protector remains open while seeing a client, because it helps the therapist to empathise with the client, helps them to understand the client’s emotional drives and needs, helps the therapist to see the world from the client’s point of view. However, counsellors / therapists can spend so much time with their Heart Protector open, that they lose the ability to close it down at the end of the working day, and so they remain completely open when they should be closed (i.e. at the supermarket checkout, picking the car up from the garage, walking down the main street of town). If they are wandering around town with their Heart open and exposed, is it any wonder that this can lead to emotional burnout? Also their inability to disconnect often means that their family / friends complain that they ‘bring their work home with them’. They should be emotionally present for their family and friends, but instead they are emotionally distant or drained.
However, at the opposite extreme are surgeons, police, firemen, some doctors, and the Armed Forces, who need to be able to disconnect from their feelings, and other people’s emotional crap, if they are to perform their jobs successfully. This is especially important if they are required to interact with dangerous, violent, disturbed, and / or unpredictable individuals, whose energy you wouldn’t want sloshing around inside your Heart space. When dealing with these types of people, it is best if your Heart Protector is firmly closed.
But then, the issue is, when the policemen or fireman goes home to their partner and family at the end of their shift, can they open up again, can they let their family and friends back into their Heart space. Or do they remain closed, which means they come across as cold, rigid, and unfeeling.
(Because it is more likely that this website will be frequented by therapists and counsellors than policemen, we have started with Audio Essence for closing down the Heart Protector. However, if there is a desperate need for the Audio Essence to open it up, let me know, and I will publish it on this website.)
When the hinges on the Heart Protector drawbridge are well oiled, and working smoothly, then the Heart Protector will open / close when we need it to, and we are well served and protected. But when the hinges are rusted, and the Heart Protector becomes locked in a single position, then we are at a major personal and social disadvantage.
This Audio Essence is composed of an initial 3 minute voice introduction, followed by a 10 minute music track, and then a 3 minute voice call back section to help you ground and integrate your experience. The Audio Essence itself is embedded into the middle 10 minute music section. Practical suggestions on use can be found at the bottom of this page.
And if you have a positive experience through listening to this Audio Essence, if it has taken you into a deeper and more expansive experience of your own inner joy… then remember, you can come back to this webpage anytime in the future, anytime you want / need to repeat this same process. It’s that simple. This webpage provides you with a simple route into that natural feeling of joy within.
Practical Suggestions on Use:
- The more conscious attention that you can give to an Audio Essence, the deeper and more fulfilling your experience will be. It is possible to receive the benefits of an Audio Essencewhile listening to it in the background, but the more time and conscious focus you can devote to it, the more fulfillment you will gain from the experience.
- It is strongly advised that you do not listen to an Audio Essence while driving or performing tasks which require your undivided attention.
- Many people have found that listening to an Audio Essence using headphones greatly enhances their experience… although if you do not have headphones or earplugs, listening to it played on your computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone will still prove equally as effective.
- The effectiveness of an Audio Essence is not dependent on the particular volume it is played at, in fact, it can be set at the minimum volume level where it is still audible to the listener and it will still be effective. When using an Audio Essence, therefore, select the volume level which is most comfortable for your experience at that time.
- If your internet connection is slow, it may be better to allow the Audio Essence to fully download on to your webpage first before you start to listen. To attempt to listen while it is still downloading may mean the Audio Essence pauses, and this may interrupt and disturb your experience.
