The HEART is the motor that keeps the blood moving around our bodies. In doing so, it makes the work of every other organ possible.
Blood brings in raw material to the organs and moves out the result of the work of every organ. Blood supplies the hormones that trigger off everything the organs do. What keeps the blood moving is the heart.
When the heart is weak or unstable the blood doesn’t move around properly eventually resulting in all kinds of complications.
Most serious or chronic physical problems are heart problems that haven’t been diagnosed yet.
This is why I include some sort of heart support in just about every treatment I make. Over the years I have found people and animals responding better to other herbs and natural treatments when their heart has been supported through the treatment.
But there is only so far herbs can take you when it comes to the heart. At some point, our little motor needs to find it’s own rhythm and source of life energy or all we have a motor that’s being coaxed into working and that can get tiring.
How can we help the heart find it’s own rhythm?
We find out what really motivates us to keep living in the body.
Note the ‘living in the body’ bit. A lot of people have very sincere reasons for living that involve making the world a better place, loving their family and friends, providing for their children and so on. Love is a beautiful but you can be full of love and still not really want to be in your body. And that not wanting to be in the body is going to translate at some point or the other into the heart under-functioning just a little bit.
Which brings me to my main point – what really makes the heart want to support life in the body? The answer for us humans is simply – the prospect of joyful pleasure – the sort that makes your eyes shine and your feet dance. Most people will keep going even when there isn’t much of that in everyday life, if there’s the hope of it being possible in the future. But if that hope dies, and the person either chooses to stay in a situation where there is no prospect of joyful pleasure, or believes they cannot or should not move towards better situations, the heart will start under-functioning and this will show up eventually as some sort of organ dysfunction – the list of all the conditions that could result from this is endless.
And so, if there’s one thing you could do to truly get on the path of healing instead of living and endless fight against symptoms and struggling to keep going, it is to find out what makes you want to live in your body, what gives you joyful pleasure – it will tend to be something you need your body to do – making love, dancing, singing, travelling maybe – and start doing it, or moving towards it.
