Think with your heart

img158It is hard to have a deep discussion of preventative care without exploring the internal organ relationships and energetics. We use the word energetics because we are talking about the Qi or energy of the organ but not the physical organ. For example, when use the word heart, it is a broad concept and covers the entire mental, emotional, and spiritual aspect of the heart.

The heart is the seat of consciousness and awareness.  The heart is the higher, intuitive mind. When the heart is open, one feels joy, compassion, patience, focus, wisdom, and love. When the heart is closed one feels emotionally cold, impatient, agitated, and in a severe form, hate. It is paired with the small intestine, and in the Five Element philosophy – the Fire element.  When one thinks with his or her heart, the thoughts are less self centered and of a universal loving nature.  This higher intuitive mind is always sending us messages, mainly ideas to help us find our path and purpose. We need to quiet down and listen to the whisper of the heart.

In Taoist and Chinese Medicine philosophy the heart houses the Shen. The Shen is the deep spiritual aspect. When the Shen is disturbed, we will feel agitated.  Insomnia is an example of disturbed Shen.  How do we nourish the Shen?  The Shen is nourished by the inner virtues like loving kindness, being humble, courage, integrity and gentleness.  When the Shen is strong it shows in our complexion. The face will glow and we will have a deep inner smile.

Be intuitive, think with your heart.

  • This is so key what you are describing so well. I remember you saying “drop your mind into your heart” and this is such a powerful idea and yet so challenging to do! More posts please!
    Thanks, Ilyana

  • You can certainly see your enthusiasm in the work you write.
    The sector hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren’t
    afraid to mention how they believe. At all times go after your heart.

  • I must show some thanks to the writer for bailing me out of such a setting.
    Just after checking through the online world and meeting basics that were
    not beneficial, I assumed my entire life was over. Being alive
    devoid of the strategies to the problems you have fixed by way of the posting
    is a crucial case, and those which might have in a wrong way affected my career if
    I hadn’t come across your blog. Your main natural talent and kindness in dealing with all the stuff was helpful.
    I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come upon such a
    step like this. I can at this time look forward to my future.
    Thanks so much for this professional and sensible help.
    I won’t be reluctant to recommend your web page to anyone who needs guidelines about this subject matter.
