The heart is the center of the circulatory system. It is made up of 2 pumps working in perfect synchronization. The RIGHT side pumps blood to the lungs. The LEFT side pumps freshly oxygenated blood by the lungs to the rest of the body
Metaphysically, the heart is the center of physical and spiritual being, representing the “central wisdom of feeling rather than the head-wisdom of reason” (Cooper, 82). It is the symbol for love. It is compassion and understanding, life-giving and complex. Often known as the seat of emotions, the heart is synonymous with affection. In Egypt, represented life-essence, as the mummified had their heart preserved, first part of man to live, last to die. Hearts also carry senses of intellect and understanding, as well as connotations of the soul, along with will and courage. It is the central point (with the brain and sexual organs being the endpoints) of the vertical scheme of the human.
Negative emotions can make us sick based on multiple studies and even medical doctors are beginning to link mind-body-spirit connection now. Unhealed sadness and grief is the formula for deep depression, and shame and guilt often underlie addictions. Self-defeating beliefs, the other half of the emotional equation, set us up for stress and bad decisions. Excessive anger, when not expressed in harmless ways, leads to heart conditions, drug and alcohol addiction, headaches, domestic violence and depression. Incessant fear pumps cortisol and other hormones into the body, which leads to cellular breakdown and more stress.
Physically, these locked energies in a negative emotional pattern create conditions for physical and mental disease. They can present as:
A Yale study conducted by cardiologist Dean Ornish showed that men and women who felt loved and supported had fewer blockages in their heart arteries. In fact, the men in the 10,000-man study who felt like their wives didn’t love them had twice the incidence of angina. Love is contagious!
