MEDITATION ON THE FOUR CHAMBERS OF THE HEART
By Alice B. Clagett
4 July 2015

How would it be to meditate on the circulation of blood through the four chambers of the heart? Would that be fun? One might concentrate on each chamber, one at a time, in the same way that blood circulates through the heart …

Right Atrium, Right Ventricle, Left Atrium, Left Ventricle … like that … keeping in mind that when blood leaves the right ventricle, it goes to the lungs where it is infused with oxygen. Then the oxygenated blood enters the left atrium of the heart, proceeding from there to the left ventricle, and on to the body cells.

A person might print out an image of the four chambers of the heart, and look at that image while meditating …

In the drawing, ‘R.A.’ means right atrium … that is, on the right side of my body as I look down at it; ‘R.V.’ means right ventricle; ‘L.A.’ means left atrium; and ‘L.V.’ means left ventricle. 

Here is a video on the circulation of blood through the heart …
