We hear about it all the time in songs and poems; a heart that is broken: My Achy Breaky Heart, Heart Break Hotel, Only Love Can Break a Heart,. What if it was true? That grief really can break your actual heart?
There is a condition called Broken Heart Syndrome which mimics a heart attack. It is a condition brought on by sudden extreme stress, as in the experience of losing a loved one. There is a temporary disruption of your heart’s normal pumping function in one area of the heart, the lower left ventricle. The broken hearted person experiences sudden chest pain and shortness of breath.
The test results are the same as for a regular heart attack but there are no blocked arteries. This is the heart’s reaction to a sudden surge of stress hormones and is called takosubo cardiomyopathy or stress cardiomyopathy.
Fortunately most people have a quick recovery from this physical heart break. However recovery from stress, grief and the collapse of the usual life of a heart broken person can take much longer and have a devastating effect on the immune system, ability to sleep and function in the world. The emotional devastation can last a lifetime in vulnerable people with a history of depression, suicidal ideation, P.T.S.D. and anxiety disorders.
” You can die of a broken heart-its a scientific fact-and my heart has been breaking since that very first day we met. I can feel it now, aching deep behind my rib cage, the way it does every time we are together, beating a desperate rhythm : love me, love me, love me.” Abby McDonald, Getting over Garret Delaney.
Most of us will experience a deep grief, and loss in our lifetime. Imagine how it must be for those of us living in war zones, in areas of famine and natural disasters.
Individually we can recover much more quickly than is commonly believed. It does not take years and a fortune in therapy dragging yourself through the angst of your past. It is a suffering that cannot be suppressed without having serious consequences in your every day life. So being enabled to take yourself out of suffering is vital to live fully, happily and following your dreams instead of living in a nightmare.
Heart break can be instantly transformed by entering the heart mind and coming into coherence with your brain. You will feel immediate relief from suffering. So much so that it will feel as if a miracle has occurred. You will most likely fall quickly out of your heart mind and back into the old habits of the ego. It is like anything we master it takes practice and guidance. This is what my six month, individualised, programme brings to you. It is a safe journey into your heart mind so that by the end of six months you will be walking the path into you heart, being creative from your authentic soul self , within three breaths.
My ultimate goal is to create a tribe that lives primarily from the heart mind in coherence and as a group we can create a field of energy that will add to the healing energy of the World Coherence movement which is occurring right now.
Your heavy heart.
Let loose on mellow winds,
Russetted memories in pale gold,
Dust from sweet unction days.

May we all be free from suffering. May we all be at peace.
In my six month “Heart Inn Me” programme we will explore together how to sit in your heart mind and to listen to stillness. We can then share any blocks you may come across and then the positive outcomes of this practice in your life.
I will help you to develop Heart Mind and Brain Coherence where all of the chaos of the external world, our obsessing monkey mind, angst and suffering melts away. This can happen, often without you even realising it, as you become more aligned with your true authentic being and Soul Self. You will transform and experience your transpersonal mind too. This six month programme is personalised especially for you as we commit to work and explore together one on one.
