The Heart is the central driving force of the body.
All purposes and desires originate here and go out to the rest of the body.
The Heart converts vital energy from the center of the energy field - that same energy that caused us to even be born - into emotional energy. For example; You wake up feeling energized and your heart recieves that energy. It changes that energy into a wish to be happy today. This 'wish energy' moves up to the brain. The brain recieves it and looks up its database of information to find out what makes you happy. It finds 'Hugging the Dog' and gives your body the command to hug your dog.
The Heart is like a filter. If it is well, energy passes through to the brain, the lungs and the circulatory system of the entire body properly bringing vitality, food and joy everywhere. If the heart is not well, the brain recieves unclear confused messages and very soon the whole body is confused. We end up being attracted to the 'wrong' people as our hormones and pheromones go crazy; not knowing what food we really want to eat and bingeing on things we don't really want or need; not sleeping enough or at the right times and so on.
The Heart has no limits emotionally - our emotional experiences are as varied and infinite as the universe! Therefore the pain experienced by someone suffering with a heart problem is hard to describe. All we can say is rather general but true for everyone all the same;
The Heart requires only one 'food' or 'energy', LOVE. Love in a person's life is fully responsible for the health and well-being of the Heart. When love is either blocked from reaching the heart or the person believes he is separated from love, heart problems occur. They also happen when the person believes that his or her love is not being adequately expressed.
This particular time in the history of man has seen the heart taking a back seat to the brain, in the care of people. The brain is but the pen of the heart, and can never function for long without energy from the heart.
Heart problems which start with a dull ache in the chest are a last minute rescue operation the system is carrying out to bring attention to the fact that the desires, and love of the person are not being allowed out. The person has got a wall in front of his or her heart, a wall with holes maybe but a wall nevertheless, and the heart is suffocating.
When the pain graduates into heart attacks, the system is screaming for help, it would be good to start loving and loving with a vengeance along with treating the physical organ the heart. Inmost cases a near death experience solves the emotional problem as it suddenly opens the person to the realization of the intensity of his or her love and the immediate need to express it.
When heart disorders are experienced, heart disease, heart tissue disorders, and blockages in the heart, very often these are love and rejection related trauma showing up, loss of faith in religion, God, society or family, a sense of pride in being lonely and 'suffering alone', a decision to live in a nightmare of a situation due to stringent rules set by your own self or by others around you.
In every heart problem case, the person causing the affliction who can make the choice for healing is you. If it were not so, the emotional trauma undergone would have shown up elsewhere on the body, not the heart. Your heart is yours, your light, your love, to shine in front of the world or hide under a bush. Sooner or later every person has to make the choice and some have done well in choosing very early to follow the path of love.
