A Facebook fan and client shared this piece with me and asked me to comment.
While I can’t really know what causes her heart attack, we certainly know or heard of people who died from a heart attack though cholesterol and blood pressure are normal. I know of an old lady who has very high cholesterol profile, 90 years old, no medications and still enjoy her weekly majong session.
The heart, according to traditional medicine of the East and the West regards it not as a pump but the seat of the Spirit or consciousness.
When the spirit or vitality is down, it reflects in the eyes. The eyes, according to the German mystic Hildegard von Bingen is the window to the soul. This is why I am trained to look into my patient’s eyes during a consultation session.
The spirit is expressed as vitality when a person is at peace with him or herself and others, nature, and has a living purpose in life. He or she knows what is his or her mission in life and this creates an inner spark in the person’s life.
I found that many of us don’t have a purpose in life. We eat, sleep, play, work, make love, busy with children’s enrichment classes and tuition… and we thought this is the purpose in life. We work and work and keep busy out of fear of not having enough – money, status.
There is nothing wrong with fulfilling our duties but once we lost touch with our soul’s purpose and inner life, everything will collapse when things go wrong such as children leaving or not listening to you, lost your job, lost your loved ones etc… could all these lead to a heart attack? Maybe and likely.
