The heart is a muscle that beats for the lifetime of the living being it lies within, whether it be human or animal. It is the epitome of endurance and resilience, for there are many potential hazards to its health and wellbeing. Not only must it beat strongly and regularly without ever missing a beat, it must also weather the storm of emotions that it is subjected to, particularly from the human being. It must also cope with the barrage of poor food choices that some humans make that results in the clogging of the body’s arteries, making the work of the heart much more difficult. The heart is a muscle, yes, made of physical tissue, but it is also a symbol of love and the organ that is associated with all affairs to do with that emotion.
So, when people talk about one having a broken heart, is it possible or is it just a figure of speech? Can the heart muscle actually be affected so badly by loss and grief that it can be described as broken? Yes, it can, and there have been many cases where the organ has actually stopped because it cannot keep beating in the face of such deep emotional loss.
Heartbreak is a deep emotional wound that can take years off a person’s life if they allow it to stay within their psyche. Although the term ‘heartbreak’ speaks more of emotional pain, any trauma or deep emotion will have a direct or sometimes insidious effect on the physical body. If the trauma and emotions are not faced or dealt with, the physical body will begin to speak out through pain and illness. So, deep emotional trauma such as heartbreak will manifest itself as pain, sickness and injury that, when investigated, will have no apparent cause. It may or may not affect the heart muscle directly, but, if left untreated, the symptoms of heartbreak and any other deep emotional trauma will take their toll on a human’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. It could, in fact, crush them and break their spiritual body. If that occurs, the will to live will be gone and the heart will stop beating. The person will literally have died of a broken heart.
Do not underestimate the power and impact deep emotional trauma can have on the health and well-being of humans and animals. Wounding at the soul level will make recovery especially difficult unless compassion, understanding and assistance is given to the person carrying the pain. In acknowledging a person’s right to grieve, we also acknowledge their right to hold onto the pain. That is as it may be. However, should you be carrying a broken heart, there will come a time when your soul is ready to let go and to move on. You will know when that is, because you will suddenly feel drawn to seek counselling or healing. Allow yourself time to grieve and to submerse yourself in the pain, but do not deny yourself the opportunity to release it and to step back into life again. Life is for the living, and where there is life there is hope. Trust your intuition and allow us to guide you to Creator’s light. Help is always at hand: all you need to do is ask.
