Chances are, if you are a living breathing, human being, you will at some point in your life experience heart break. Look, I know I am not giving you any new information when I tell you, HEART BREAK SUCKS. Heart break can be so strong that will create an ache so deep that can not even be detected by machine. And thought there might be nothing physically wrong with the heart, a crazy pain still radiates from the chest area so strongly that you could begin to feel as though you are dying. Ever felt that? Yup, that is an "emotional heart attack".
I looked up the symptoms of 'heart attack' to support me in understanding this invisible pain and maybe how to make it STOP! What sparked in me was nothing short of amazing!
"Heart attacks cause scar tissue to form amongst normal heart tissue, this can lead to further heart problems or even heart failure."
Wow… Take a step back and look at, not just your own heartache, but the world that we live in as a whole. We are nations among nations of people suffering from "emotional heart disease" and we are on the break of massive planetary heart failure due to too many heart attacks... OMG! This has got to STOP!
3. CONTROL YOUR PRESSURE: There are things in life that we choose to put pressure on ourselves. We say that we must have this or that in order to be happy. We have to make this much money every month, or we have to have this house, that car, these kind of kids, this kind of accolade... blah blah blah. Come on, all you are doing is putting more pressure on yourself to achieve and whenever you may seem to fall short of your personal definition of glory...POW right in the "heart"... the pain. Well control the pressure. Prioritize and schedule your life in a way where all of your needs are met.
The heart is a muscle and so is love. When you exercise your love muscle you become more flexible, strong, balances, and you just feel good. Love does not cause pain, resistance to what is does. It is up to you understand what you are resisting. If you look at the pain and a indicator that something needs healing, you can consciously choose behaviors that support in that healing.
I am sharing this with you because I need the support of Sparkstars; those compassionate beings on this life journey. The more we use and share the lessons of compassion, the healthier our "hearts" will be as a people, as a nation, as a world.
