Matters of The Heart

Keeping our cardiovascular system healthy is one of the most important aspect of overall health. If this organ fails to function correctly, the results can be fatal.

Cardiovascular disease is the term used for all disorders of the heart or blood vessels, and is the leading cause of death and in Australia.

There are a number of things that the heart can experience, some much more severe than others. These include coronary heart disease, stroke, heart failure and cardiomyopathy, rheumatic heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, and congenital heart disease, just to name a few.

When it comes to matters of the heart, there is a clear distinction of the overall relevance in conjunction to psycho-somatic medicine.

In school and tertiary studies, we are taught that the hearts primary and only role in our existence is to pump blood through the body. However in truth, it is so much more than that.

Our hearts are our feeling centres, they house the aspects of ourselves that deeply connect to a higher source of consciousness. Through our heart connections, we are able to tap into our truth, our core essence and our divinity. Yes, the heart is a direct gateway to the soul.

It is through our hearts that we encounter a great deal of courage, strength and self-assurance. A heart that knows itself will stand strong in its truth and triumph over everything and anything that comes before it.

However, in contrary to this great power and ability the heart holds dear is a counter aspect, a shadow, and a greater vulnerability. Deep down, you may fear not being loved by others and carry a great burden of unworthiness and the inability to nurture and hold yourself dearly.

It takes a great deal of bravery to stand strong in ones power, when there are so many contradictions and obstacles in our way. Fear, separation and betrayal can weaken a once strong heart, creating a protective barrier around it and closing it off to the outside world.

You may also be experiencing heart ache, loneliness or depression, all a result of a conditioning in which you seek externally (outside of yourself) for love and validation.

Over time, the guarding of this organ can lead to complications and disease, as it is left unreceived and unexpressed.

When the heart is suppressed it becomes cold and bitter, which leads to an energetic imbalance that interferes with the natural forces of equilibrium.
