Beyond Emotional Flatlines into a Heart-center of Peace and Joy
The heart is our personal Sun. Throughout our life, it never stops shining. Its task - to energize the blood that flows through our body.
That’s not the only thing we ask of it. Our heart also carries our emotional energies. When we face the world with a warm and open heart, our heart supports our physical wellbeing. Our path is clear.
But we often choose to constrict our heart.
Lots of reasons! Who hasn’t known a broken heart? Or as Hamlet says dramatically, “the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.” Faced with what seems a cruel world, a heart can grow cold with fear and stress. A heart may carry emotional scars, and block the flow.
When a heart hardens, it loses its native strength. If we are hurt often, life overwhelms, and we retreat. We create distance from what distresses us…we still function, but not with the strength we might have.
And we’re not snails with a shell to shrink into. The heart hardens – it’s a gradual process.
We numb our hearts at our own peril. The heart constricts. The free play of communication between the heart and blood, the heart and our nervous system, loses its zest. As our circulation slows down, the heart’s integrity is compromised. We tire easily, emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually.
