The 52: Lesson Eleven – Let The Heart Massage Clear Past Issues


butterflyblueskyA Course in Miracles is one of the most important books I have ever read.  To say I read it is hardly the case, I have spent years studying its profound words and deep wisdom. It transformed my life and explained mysteries of faith and spiritual truth in ways that I could readily understand.  The resonance of its words blended with all the teachings I had long studied in ancient Indian texts, yet it is a Christian (Christ-based) text.  I recommend it to everyone who asks how they may move forward on the spiritual path and love themselves more.

These are some quotes from A Course in Miracles:

God is but love and therefore, so am I.

Love, which created me, is what I am.

Love is the way I walk in gratitude.

Love is the essence, yet the course speaks about the intrusion of the ego and how it can pull us away from love. So the heart massage, which you have been encouraged to practice this week and whenever you need it, serves to dissolve the activities of the ego by stating clearly that we “love and accept” ourselves no matter what the ego throws our way.  Do you realize how powerful this is and how your life could be changed because of it?

I hope that you have tried the heart massage and experienced its cleansing and clearing effect.  You can use it in the moment, when something happens during your day.  You can also use it retroactively.  Here’s how:

  • In the past, even long ago, something happened that shook your core of love.  It may have indelibly altered the course of your life.  If it still unsettles you, it is not too late to dissolve the ego intervention and move into love.
  • When you have the situation firmly in your mind, begins using the heart massage.  Delve into ALL the feelings, emotions and fears your felt then, repeating each time that you “love and accept yourself” no matter what happened.  Try to exhaust every single negativity surrounding the situation.
  • When you have finished, see if you feel better.  You might even give yourself a measurement — on a scale of 1-10 — on how much you felt unsettled, then re-evaluate after wards.  Your assessment of the number should have decreased.  When I work with others on this practice, we actually muscle test to do this measurement.

If you decide to try to clear past issues in this way, I recommend that you restrict this kind of clearing to only one or two at a time.  You may be surprised at how altered you will feel in this practice.

In future lessons we will move more deeply into this subject.  If you have questions about it, I am eager to help.  You can also refer to one of Henry Grayson’s books which clearly describes the method and how it works or go to his website –

In this lesson we have actively used our body to participate in healing and bringing love to the foreground.  I always feel better after this kind of work.  I hope that you do too.

With love and namaste, Deanne

About deannemincer

Deanne Mincer has been a long time student of religious and spiritual studies. For many years, she was a practitioner of yoga and in the late 1980's she was drawn to share her enthusiasm by becoming a yoga teacher. Her certification, from the Himalayan Institute, was a comprehensive two year program including the study of anatomy, diet, nutrition, Ayurvedic medical practices, the methods of teaching hatha yoga, the science of breath and the study of raja (the royal path of yoga) philosophy. She has taught yoga, meditation, and spiritual classes for more than twenty years. In the mid 1990's she became a follower of Siddha Yoga where she experienced a spiritual awakening called shaktipat and her teachings took on a new and freshly informed understanding. As Deanne continued her studies, she learned level one in Reiki and also sutdied with Henry Grayson, Ph.D. where she refined her work with muscle testing and the complex of energy healing methods Dr. Grayson has developed for use with his patients. Dr. Grayson's work is illuminated in his books, Mindful Loving and Use Your Body to Heal Your Mind. Deanne teaches group and private classes in yoga as well as stress reduction programs and meditation in many forms (sitting, walking, whirling, meditation in action, and "sleeping" meditation called yoga nidra). She has developed methods of using yoga in treating those with life threatening diseases as in the programs she designed for Gilda's Club and Friends in Deed in New York City. She was a consulting producer on an alternative health program for CNBC's Alive and Wellness, and she has demonstrated yoga on network television. Deanne created the audio DC, Inner Light Yoga with Deanne Mincer and she has spoken widely and demonstrated meditation in many venues. Deanne is an enthusiastic and joyful teacher. She is known for the keen interest she takes in her students' physical and spiritual development. She stresses that each student should work at their own pace in a non-competitive and caring environment. You can read some of the comments her students have shared in the Tesimonials Section of this site. Her teaching is grounded in her own steadfast spiritual awareness - that each of us is a being of eternal light and love and that we can all come to knowing this truth for ourselves. She is eager to help guide you on this joyful path of body, mind, breath and spirit.
