What is the Twin Hearts Meditation Technique

I have been meditating regularly for 10 years now. My expectations when I first started meditating was very high. I wanted it all, I wanted to light up my left and right brain power, have superhero 6th sense, become quick like a ninja and have the glowing peace of a monk.  While I have received enormous amounts of benefits from meditation it hasn’t been quite like this!


In fact, some days I would have a long meditation by the lake, find myself getting angry or agitated later on that day. I would say to myself, “What is wrong with me? Why can’t I keep my inner peace, cool and calm, even after meditating for so long?”
Despite staying utterly mortal, I nonetheless continued on with my meditation practice.

I didn’t even know that there were different ways to meditate. Back then all the love and light websites had not yet emerged on the internet and meetups on the internet were isolated to the dating sites.


Now, there seems to be a proliferation of meditation techniques on the internet, or maybe just on my web browser since I have most certainly been tagged in the “interested in meditation” demographic profile by now.

Back then, the term Energy Healing was also foreign to me. I categorized it in the “I see dead people” column. Only those, who were either super sensitive, giftedly intuitive or enlightened could be energy healers. At this time, I was also in the midst of conflict with my partner’s ex-wife. I felt so much anger and frustration towards her. The negative effects of stress were already well-known, that I knew I had to get some sort of relief from this.

This is when my client suggested her Energy Healer or this person who does Indian Reiki. Reiki has its origins in Japan, so apparently, Indian Reiki was slightly different. I was wary of this, being fearful of anyone messing around with my energy. She told me how much his healing sessions helped her and so I booked a few sessions with him as well.

And of course, the law of attraction kicks in and yet another client told me how her sister in England (born in India) read Angel Cards and that much of her family were also Pranic Healers. I was intrigued, as I, being of a Catholic background, was down with Angels. So we gathered a handful of friends together and she set up a “Basic Pranic Healing” weekend course for us.


It was in the course, I discovered that Pranic Healing is a formalized method of energy healing, spiritual sciences, and meditation techniques. Their foundation meditation is the Twin Hearts Meditation. For the first time, I was going to learn “how to meditate” properly! Just as a caveat, there is really no wrong way to meditate. In fact, meditation is where you learn to halt judgment. Saying that there is a proper way to meditate is incorrect. Perhaps a better way to say it is, how to meditate efficiently or how to meditate powerfully, or how to get the most out of your meditation.

The Twin Hearts Meditation technique activates 2 energy centers in your body. Your brain or even better from an energetic perspective your “crown chakra” as well as the heart center.
The crown chakra is similar to the halo you see in Saints or the glow around holy, historical figures. Yes, you have it too, maybe a bit dimmer but you have a crown chakra! The heart is well the heart, the center of love and all things warm and fuzzy.

I’ve learned that when you meditate you are actually downloading or generating massive amounts of inner or divine energy. And as Einstein says, all everything is energy and energy must go somewhere. Makes sense, its like when you have all this pent-up anger or resentment inside you and then you just explode on someone. Or when you feel so elated about something that you just want to shout it out loud or high five everyone!


That is the same with meditation. The Twin Hearts technique enables you to keep your energy flowing.

Here are the basic steps to meditate the Twin Hearts way.

1. Do some simple exercise or movements, get your physical body prepared and your blood and cells moving.

2. Sit preferably upright with your feet on the floor.

3. Ask for blessings from your higher self, God, any spiritual helpers, guides, and angels.

4. Activate your heart chakra, by focusing on your heart, smiling a remembering a time when you felt love, joy, peace and/or happiness.

4. Activate your crown chakra, by focusing on your crown, the space in the top of your head and around your head, again remembering a time when you felt, love, joy, peace and/or happiness.

5. Now ask to be a channel of peace and love (based on the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi). I learned that when you do this its impossible to keep in negativity!

6. Hold your hands in front of you, and picture a small ball of earth, and send light to this ball of earth.


7. Bless the earth! Send good vibes and good energy to the earth and everyone in it.

8. Send these same positive vibes and blessing to you, your family, your friends, and even to your business!

9. Put your hands gently down, and now focus on your heart and a light on your crown, simultaneously.

10. As you are doing this silently chant the mantra OM about 12 times.

11. Now meditate in silence for about 3 minutes.

12. Slowly come out of your meditation, then turn your hands downward, and picture light going to earth. Send blessings and positive vibes to Mother Earth! (Again you are releasing energy, keep it flowing and going!)

13. Now give thanks and gratitude to your higher self, God, any spiritual helpers, guides, and angels. (Showing gratitude is also a way to keep the energy going)

14. End your meditation with a smile. Open your eyes and smile!

15. Do basic and simple exercises and stretches again.

I hope this gives you insight on meditation and now the flow of energy!  Stay tuned in for a full video and guided meditation using the Twin Hearts technique!

How to Move From Overwhelm to Inner-Peace

Yes, I know what you’re thinking, because if you REALLY are in overwhelm you probably can’t even fathom what inner peace is.
“I am Overwhelm queen, no one can be as overwhelmed as I am”– said ALL overwhelmed people everywhere.
Seriously though, I model my business on walking the talk, so yes, I am an overwhelm expert and it ain’t always pretty.

If you don’t know me, then you may not know that I have a beautiful, blended, modern-ish, multi-cultural, sandwich generation and special needs family. A true His, Hers and Ours family.
It consists of our seven-year-old daughter, his special needs daughter, and my ailing 78-year-old mama.
At least that’s who lives with us full time under our roof. He also has a daughter in a nearby town in University, and I have a break-out artist daughter in downtown Toronto. (Don’t worry I won’t quiz you later).

We both have full time businesses, and 2nd businesses — like, who is doing just one business these days?


These days we all wear the “Hi, My Name is Busy” like a name badge at a networking party.
Ask anyone, “How are you?” and they will give you the default answer, “Busy!” as the new, “Fine thanks!”
We are constantly on the brink of overwhelm, in fact when we’re not overwhelmed, we’re bored.

Okay joking aside, overwhelm is not fun. It leads to anxiety, stress, sleepless nights and nodding off at the wheel – serious sh*t. And I drew the line at the nodding off, when my husband admitted he did that few times. Research from the CDC showed that more than a third of drivers get less than seven hours of sleep per day, so it looks like he’s not the only — even scarier.

CHECK YOURSELF before you WREAK HAVOC on everyone else

Overwhelm also hits you at the most inopportune times, like when you kid decides to cute around when she has 5 minutes to catch the school bus. What might otherwise be a comic chuckle, ends up with you snapping at her or worst yet, an all out shouting frenzy.

Overwhelm, zaps the joy out of being pleasantly present to life’s precious fleeting, fun, moments.

Everything is in hyper lapse, so you can get things done. Eventually leaving you drowning in your to-do list, making you feel inadequate, not good enough and even helpless.
For me, my overwhelm makes me want to give up everything, sell off all my worldly possessions, to buy a Sea-Doo and rent it by the hour, on some beach in the South Pacific. Yaasss life goals.

But for now, I work through my “I chose to do this” to-do list.



Here are some practical tips and spiritual rituals that have helped me deal with overwhelm.

1. Learn to say no. I’m a social bug, I love being with people, I love everything social, from meditation groups to masterminds to mix and mingle parties. I can’t do it all, see my kids and adult with my husband, a few times a week. So, I carefully plan and space out, outings, and sometimes even RSVP last minute if there’s availability,  should the time slot open up.

It took me a long time to get used to saying no, I had all types of friends ask me to do things, because they could also count on me to say yes. I realized that it was coming from a scarcity consciousness, that if I don’t accept the invite, another won’t come, or I would’ve missed an opportunity. Stop buying into that, it’s a great marketing tool right — “limited quantity, get it now while supplies last.”

Know, that you will always find yourself in the right place at the right time, no matter how many times you opt out. And there’ll always be an opportunity and in the rare case, where there really was a limited supply, well then, it happily went to someone else and it wasn’t for you.

2. Delegate. Trust that someone can do as good, or almost as good a job that you can. Even if it’s your husband making a hair bun for your budding ballerina.

3. Chunk it down. This is when you take the big task and start with a small step. And be happy with whatever progress you make. Effort is progress, just keep on it, one small chunk at a time.

4. Be a time bender. Remember that most things will take 2x the amount of time,  that you plan.
Accept that your best work, may take more time and that unless it’s a life or death situation, chances are, it will be okay to not make your deadline.

5. Meditate or start meditating. I cannot tell you how much this has kept me grounded. I received a text from a girlfriend, who was having trouble with her partner’s ex-wife, and this sweet friend of mine wanted to “punch her in the face” and then said to me, “No wonder you do so much spiritual work!” Yup, I have ex-wife woes too.

Meditation is the best way to re-fuel your energetic and emotional reserves, by far, there’s a reason this practice has been around in both the religious and non-religious, for thousands of years and now it’s backed by science, and it starts with the next point….

6. Breath work. Don’t forget to breathe. A former fitness client of mine, and high-level executive, told me that she enjoyed our workouts together, because it was the only time in her day, she was able to breathe deeply. (You know inhale at the exertion and exhale on the return).

The simple, free, flow, breathing, is more than enough to start with. Breathing in through your nose, expanding your lungs to the abdomen (diaphragm) then exhale it all out through your mouth. Before you know it, you will be meditating. Your breathing changes with every emotion you have. Master your breath and you will master your life.

7. Channel your energy somewhere. Energy, especially stress energy needs to be released from your body, physically and energetically. We all know the perils of harbouring toxic, stress energy in your body.

I like to do the etheric “cutting cords”. It’s a like a karate chop, around your body, especially around your torso area (solar plexus chakra) and declare, “Cutting away, and disintegrating all negative energies that no longer serve me, dissolve it out into the universe!” Chop! Chop!

Here you are setting a powerful intention, to free yourself of negative energy. Here you are marrying the Physical with the Non-physical, powerful stuff.

8. Get grounded. Get outside, and barefoot in the ground if possible, if not then sit or lean against your favorite tree. As you do this, give quiet thanks to Mother Earth for her rejuvenating powers.

This also works as well, with your face to the sun, or even to the moon. Riding the gratitude stream is the one of the most powerful waves you can surf on.

9. Talk it out. Preferably to someone, who is a really good listener, opinions and suggestions aren’t needed, you just need the opportunity to again release and get it out of your head.

If you don’t already, talk to God, or to your Higher-Self, your Divine-self,  or your Un-Conscious Mind, whatever you choose to call it. Here is a short prayer from author and spiritual teacher Marianne Williamson that may help:
“Dear God (Source, Divine …)
I give this time of quiet to You.
Please dissolve my thoughts of stress and fear
And deliver me to the inner place
Where all is peace and love.
(Deep Breath Here)

10. Journal. If you haven’t started the habit of journaling, then sticky notes work great too. Again, another method to get the energy of overwhelm out of your mind and body. Take notes as to why you’ve chosen to do what you do. Are you doing work that is leading with service or leading with the heart? Is there a shift you can make in your perception of the work you do, that serves the highest intentions, for your clients, co-workers or project? Remember to end your Journal input with a note of gratitude.


I really do think you can have it all, it just may not come as fast as you wanted it to.
But rest assured, you only need to take one step at time, and on the good days, feel free to lunge over two.

The universe was made from a mass of what looked like total chaos, only to precisely come together after billions of years, and be intimately intertwined with each other,  then go on to birth the 8.7 millions of species, inhabiting the Earth today. We’re made of this same chaotic star dust, so never underestimate, the possibilities that we can create, by taking it one deep exhale at a time.
