To See with One’s Heart
The heart is the most influential organ in the body. On a physical level, the heart is responsible for dominating blood and the health of the blood vessels. It circulates the blood throughout the body to ensure proper nutrition for every tissue. It is the strongest muscle in the body and is in constant flux. According to Chinese medicine, the heart houses the “Shen”(the mind). The Shen is responsible for mental health & activity and even consciousness. It is responsible for the emotion of Joy in one’s life and governs our ability to sleep soundly, think clearly, and have a good memory. A healthy Heart plays a big role in our emotional health and our ability to have meaningful relationships. When the Heart energy is weak and Blood is deficient, we may suffer from anxiety, insomnia, forgetfulness, inability to concentrate, and in extreme cases manic behavior or coma. Without the Heart, life could not exist.
During my life, my heart has always played a crucial role is every situation. It is the force that drives my every thought and action. My heart gives me the strength to carry on through tough times, to care for those in need, the ability to love others, and to push forth in all my successes. It has brought me great joy in my life as well it has also brought me great sorrow and depression. We take our hearts and all the emotional trauma that it endures for granted. Through the many ups and downs during the course of a lifetime, the heart shapes our existence with its powerful force. It seems to me that the only time many of us recognize this wonderful champion is when we are in depression, sorrow, or bad health.
The power of love is the greatest and most powerful force in the universe. No other emotion can match or compare to love. We live for love, we search for love, we better ourselves for love and some even kill for love. Yet, no matter what the situation in life is, you can bet that the heart and love are behind it. Great things in the world have been done with the power of the heart. If you really think about, all your experiences in life, the heart was the driving force behind every decision you have made.
Throughout my experiences, every emotion revolves around the heart. If you happen to study oriental medicine as I do, then you know that the Chinese people associate an emotion with mostly every organ (I.E. heart/joy, liver/anger, spleen/worry, kidneys/fear, Lung/sadness, etc). I cannot deny when an organ has an issue that the pertaining emotion does arise in the human body. For example, when I had anger issues while dealing with the struggles of life, my liver, heart, eyes, sleep, moods, and memory were all compromised during this time. My health deteriorated and my emotions became unbalanced. I do accept the notion of Oriental medicine as pertaining to organs and emotions, but I always put in question the role of the heart. If you really think about it, whether you are experiencing fear, anger, joy, sadness, or worry, where do you feel it? You feel most emotion within the center of the chest. AND where is the Heart of Champion located? That’s right, in the center of the chest! Excitement, happiness, depression, fear, and many other emotions are all felt in the chest. That’s why, in my opinion, the “Heart” is the center of the universe and the true command center of human existence!
As I’ve stated before, I am of the Simian lineage. My emotions and mind are tied together like a tightly bonded cord. The distinction between thought and emotion is not a luxury I have. Since many scientists believe that the brain the command center of the body, to which I totally disagree, little credit is given to this little champion, the heart. So what did or does this mean for me? Does this mean that the struggles of my life are to be ever complicated by the distinction between thought and feeling?
I believe that to answer any question about yourself truthfully you must go deep within. To society or western medical world standards I’m a genetic defect and am not placed to fit into society. This is why I don’t pay much attention to the views of society or certain medical professions. I was told once that “a person is measured by the size of their heart.” If this is true, then why are so many of us blinded by what really lies deep within a person? I was thought by many of my spirit guides that the eyes are the pathway to a person’s heart. In other words, no matter what a person chooses to show you by action, it is through their eyes that show you what they are really made of. What’s truly sad, is that most people don’t even recognize this within them. They do not understand the inner power of their heart and they drift through life without a feeling of self-love or worth. This is where I and Simian people can thrive or really destroy ourselves!
Anyone who truly knows me knows how much I love to help people. One of my first experiences that I can remember using my heart was when I was 5 years old. My father took me to the local train station to pick up my aunt. This homeless guy was standing inside the station holding a few newspapers and looking for money. I remember watching him walk around the station as if he was lost and confused. Many people stared at him with disgust and judgment. I, however, found myself being intrigued by this man. He was dirty, unshaved, clothes ripped, and had an odor you could smell across the station, but yet I couldn’t stop looking at him. As he was walking around the train station, he dropped his newspapers on the floor. He bent down to pick them up and I realized that no one would help him. People walked right by him and watched as he struggled to pick up his papers. The feeling that came over me was disgust and sadness and so I walked right over to him and helped him pick up his newspapers. The smile on this guy’s face was from ear to ear and he seems so appreciative of someone helping him. As I picked up the last of the papers, the man touched me on my shoulder and stated ” thank you, young lady! you should run for president! only someone that nice should be president!” I smiled back at him and walked back to my dad. I felt so good inside! The feeling I felt was as if I just received the greatest Yule present a girl could want! Even at a young age, I realized that the act of helping others was something that would be a part of my life forever.
I have carried on with my life in the servitude of helping others. With my spirit guides, my parents, and my heart as my lead, I found myself encountering many people who needed guidance, a caring heart, a pick me up, or even someone to laugh with. I didn’t realize it back then, but I was good at it. I always knew what to say to people and how to help them. As a child, I never wondered why spiritual counseling was so easy for me or why someone like myself with little or no life experience knew what to say or do. All I knew is that it felt right, it fit me like a hand and glove. It was easy for me to befriend the sick, the troubled, the socially inadequate, and the friendless people. If you needed a friend, advice, or a shoulder to cry on, I was there.
Grade school, high school, college, and beyond had been no different. I have been fortunate enough to help people during their dark moments. From suicide stages to the need to hurt others, to abusive homes, and so on. I would like to think that each of these people whose lives I encountered, that I had a small but very influential part in changing their life for the better! Mostly, I believe that they’ve made more of an impact on my life than I do on them, but there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of the many people I’ve been blessed to help. The funny thing is that I remember all of them!
One of the nicest things anyone ever has ever done for me was during one of my high school years. I befriended this girl in my sophomore year who didn’t have many friends. I could feel that she was lonely, depressed and sad. She was a bit overweight and it saddened me that many of the students teased her. We had a class together so I saw this as an opportunity to weasel my way in. Since we only had one class together, I wasn’t able to see her much other than that hour we had during that class. So I started by talking to her and writing notes throughout each school day. We’d pass notes back and forth to each other in between classes and became school pen pals. Anyone who’s ever written a note in school knows they can be extremely private and personal. And because of that, I was able to get her to open up to me. As the days passed I realized how depressed this girl actually was. She had thoughts of suicide and I learned how much she hated who she was. She had a great personality and it was truly sad how people judged her on her looks. The pen pal friendship went on for almost the entire sophomore year. I always wished that I had more time for her during that year, but I was busy with swimming and softball most of the time. Towards the end of the year, one of my teachers called me into her classroom while i was walking down the hall. I thought “oh boy, what did I do now? I know I’ve been behaving lately!” When I entered the classroom, she and two other teachers were sitting in the seats, I had such an uneasy feeling. When I sat down, she pulled out a bunch of papers and asked me if I knew what they were. I replied “no.” She then proceeded to read from this stack of papers. It turns out that it was a term paper written by my pen pal friend about me. My friend wrote an essay about me and how I helped her believe in life, herself, and how she no longer wanted to commit suicide. This essay had me in tears! I could not believe that our little note sessions every day meant so much! The three teachers had this very inspired look of approval in their eyes and thanked me for what I did. Many teachers approached me and told me how much they enjoyed reading her essay. It made me proud, but to me, all I did was talk to someone who I enjoyed their company, I guess to my friend it was the world to her.
During my travels, this one night I went out to a local bar. A man came up to me, I guess to hit on me, and we started the normal introduction chat. He asked what I did for a living. At this particular time, I was traveling around the country and just doing intuitive readings and healing sessions. So I told him “I help people”. Sounds way better than psychic! lol. With a confused look on his face, he replied “uhh like what? a nurse?” I kindly explained to him that throughout my life, my path, crosses those people who need help, guidance, etc. I went into some depth with the conversation, hopefully not taking his ear off lol, and noticed that he had this puzzled yet intrigued look on his face. When I was done talking, he leaned over and quietly asked me “are you an angel?” I laughed and thought he was joking, but he was dead serious! He repeated the question again and I responded, still with a little smile “No, I’m just a person who’s lucky enough to share intimate moments in other people’s lives.” We didn’t talk much after that and I have no clue why. I figured I freaked him out or sounded like a quack. The rest of the night I kept laughing and shaking my head at the thought of what he asked me. I have never heard that from anyone before and certainly didn’t think I was of that quality to be referred to something like that. It wasn’t until a few years later that I realized the type of work I did and what Loyrie, my lifetime spirit guide, had told me when I was little. I realized that I was a Soul Sage and earth guide and teaching that I was taught from an early age made sense! It was like a light bulb went off in my head!
My gift is to spread love and share the power of my heart with the world! The intuitiveness, the mediumship, the healing aspect, and the ability to read people were all just aids to help share my gift to the world. Having this gift is a rewarding, but thankless job. Once in a while, you do get a notification, but that’s not what this is about! I have never given myself any recognition for anything I’ve ever done. And why should I, it what I do! The rewards, well the rewards for me was seeing someone be happier, living a better life, being successful, and seeing a big smile across their face every day. Even until this very day, I feel that my mission in life is what people are supposed to do, to share the love and share the heart! I will say that I do consider myself special! Special in the sense that I get to share the most intimate moments in many people’s lives.
I have volunteered for many charities and cancer organizations. The greatest organization that I volunteer for is Hospice. For those of you who don’t know what Hospice is, it is an organization like Susan G Koman’s breast cancer or The Make a Wish Foundation, that deals with people who have cancer and are at the end of their life. Hospice is one of a few organizations that actually care about their patients and truly goes out of their way for those people in their care. As a volunteer, I go to the homes of the patients and spend time with them, do massage, and run errands for them. People often say to me “how do you do that? It’s so depressing!” My response to them is always the same “For me, it is an honor to be apart of these people’s lives for the most intimate part of their life, their return home!” You would be surprised how much good it does the patients of Hospice when you go visit them and spend a little time with them! It is healing for everyone involved, including myself! My time with Hospice has taught me so much and has rewarded me with so many fond memories of so many great people.
As I’ve said before, the heart is the most influential organ in the body and no other organ has the endures that of the heart. The power of the heart ranges from physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. The power of my heart has taken me through great highs and to the depths of great lows. It can be used for love and it can be used for destruction. It is up to you to do with it what you choose. Don’t ever underestimate the power you have with your heart. No matter what is going on in your life, YOU, have the power to change, shape, and mold your life any way you want. You don’t need an outside source to give you that power. You were made with a Heart of a Champion! Share your love and light with the world to make it a better place. I have a Heart of a Champion because of what I choose to do with it. I do and have done many things for this world that people are unaware of. No matter what you do or how little it seems, the power of the heart has a ripple effect in this universe. So share your love and show that you have a Heart of Champions!
