Did you know that painful experiences such as betrayal, abandonment, depression and an inability to cope are just some of the emotions that directly affect the heart? A few years ago I went through something that left me feeling so cut and betrayed I seriously drove home with my hand on my chest. My heart literally hurt so much, I couldn't breathe unless my palm was pressed to my chest. That was my first conscious experience with literal "heart break!" I sincerely hope that you can't relate to being hurt this much, but I realize that most of you probably have.. :/
Since Chinese Medicine teaches that each of our emotions will have a different effect on each of our organs, here's some more information and a simple exercise to help send healing energy to your heart.
