Here’s a short meditation from Peter Fairfield’s Deep Happy:
Connecting to the Heart
Relax for a moment and gently take a few breaths into your heart area. Does it feel warm, open, and alive, or numb and tight? Maybe you don’t feel much of anything. Please don’t worry if that’s the case; it’s just tension from stress. If you begin to feel and breathe into your heart area, it will begin to open. Sometimes when this happens, we might feel an emotion, or even laugh or cry. These are good things—enjoy them. The heart can heal. You have just begun the process.
