"Cleanse your heart through asking for forgiveness to enhance your body's energy"
Almighty God says in the Holy Qur'an "Then do they not reflect upon the Qur'an, or are there locks upon [their] hearts?" (Surat Muhammad, 47:24). And He also says "They have hearts with which they do not understand, they have eyes with which they do not see, and they have ears with which they do not hear." (Surat Al-'A`rāf "The Heights", 7:179)
"Verily, there is a piece of flesh in the body, if it is healthy, the whole body is healthy, and if it is corrupt, the whole body is corrupt. Verily, it is the heart." (Hadith)
Simple steps to cleanse and purge your heart:
The emotions, envy, grief and distress are stored in the heart just like the computer, so all people must cleanse their hearts first to achieve what they want, or to gain God's contentment and thus to achieve their aspirations.
When Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) asked Prophet Muhammad (PBUH): "Does the heart become rusty?" He said: "Yes". Then she asked him: "O Messenger of Allah, what shall polish it?" He replied: "Asking for forgiveness repeatedly."
When a man commits a disobedience action and insists on it or holds in his heart something of hatred, envy or resentment against any other people, what is happening in his heart? A black spot appears in the heart which increases with disobediences and sins.
First, making an exercise to cleanse the heart: Close your eyes, relax and ask Allah for forgiveness many times or recall a joyful positive action you have done, such as good action for the sake of Allah or an obedience you have committed. In this case the heart illuminates and thus the awareness and the ability to assess things properly increase, and man's discernment improves and he becomes more positive, aware and discerning.
We find that most of people, God is praised, have high positive energy and purity, especially children, because they do not store anything in their hearts, in addition to the righteous men and the elderly.
Second, on the authority of Abu Harayrah (May Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (PBUH), who said: Allah (mighty and sublime be He) said: Spend (on charity), O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you. It was related by al-Bukhari (also by Muslim). (Hadith).
It means that when I feel joy, happiness and positive and my heart pulses and positive energy increase, I look for anyone in need of help or in distress to support him/her, remind them of Allah and help them overcome their ordeal. In this case, I transfer my positive energy that I reached from praising Allah and seeking forgiveness to them. As we mentioned earlier, every 4,000 negative persons with negative energy need one positive person to maintain their positive energy.
Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (May Allah be pleased with him) said: "Money decreases by spending, while knowledge increases by granting". If we explained this utterance in terms of energy, we would find that if you loaded yourself by praising God, asking for forgiveness, recalling the positive actions and helping someone else in a problem, God will enhance your positive energy.
Third, praise God repeatedly, as God says in the Holy Qur'an: "If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]" (Surat 'Ibrāhīm, 14:7). Thanking and praising God increase the blessings and goodness.
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) was always thanking God for everything.
Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) said that when the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) was seeing what he loves, he was saying "Thank God whose grace completes the good deeds". And if he was seeing what he hates, he was saying "Thank God for everything."
The Prophet (PBUH) was not frustrated by evil but he was thanking God for everything, which means that man should avoid negative words because they affect man's energy, both negatively and positively.
We must follow the above Hadith and thank God in all cases, whether good or evil, sadness or joy, since thanking God and asking for forgiveness is the cure and purge of hearts and the shortest way to God's contentment.
