Ruby Breath for Heart Healing

Here is a seemingly simply–but profound–healing meditation from my third book, Crystal Healing for the Heart: Gemstone Therapy for Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Well-BeingIt’s called the ruby breath, and it invokes the archetypal forces of ruby (strength, vitality, and unconditional love) to infuse the heart with the fortitude needed for your healing journey. If you have a piece of ruby you can hold it for the meditation; if not, visualize a brilliant red gem instead.

Place the stone at your heart center, or visualise a bright red ruby floating in front of your chest. As you inhale, imagine that your breath moves through the stone and into your heart chakra, flooding it with red healing light. As you exhale, see this light spreading through your body, bathing every part of you with the qualities of strength and love. Repeat this process several times, allowing each breath to reawaken your whole being to its inherent strength.

Take notice of any areas that resist that ruby-red light, and target them with your breath. One by one direct your in-breath to those spots, allowing it to expand from those areas on the out-breath. Picture the ruby-red energy dissolving any blockages, stagnancies, or emotional pain that may reside there. In time you will feel those areas becoming brighter, as though they are filled with vitality.

Once your whole being has accepted the ruby breath, bring your awareness back to your heart space. On the inhale, gather all of that red energy into the heart, and on the exhale, let it sink into the heart, as if it is descending through the chakras and into the ground beneath you. Take several slow, deliberate breaths afterwards as you return to normal consciousness, being thankful of the gifts that ruby brings.
