Three Steps to How To Heal A Broken Heart How To Heal A Broken Heart - "Love & Survival" by Dr Dean Ornish A speech at Beach Cities Toastmasters Club, Manhattan Beach, California
A broken heart is not just a romantic relationship that went bad or wrong, painful It could be a chronic toxic relationship at work, with a friend, room mate or family members. When negative emotions linger in our hearts and minds, our heart is adversely affected and can start hurting. That chronic chest or heart pain could lead to it's commonly known as a broken heart.
Dr. Ornish explains in his book "Love & Survival" 8 Pathways to Intimacy and Healing, that the three most important cause of heart failure and chest pain are:
1. Lack of Love 2. Lack of Intimacy, or connection with a friend to talk about it 3. Isolation, or lack of social support, group support, or reference group
I also found that when solving the three above conditions is not enough, when we have more love and laughter in our lives, a friend to whom connect in a safe environment where we are heard and we can express/share our feelings, emotions and thoughts, and we have the adequate group support, a holistic energy healing practitioner can heal our hearts...
They could be a Reiki practitioner, bio-energetic/bio-meditation one, an acupuncturist, one that practice energy clearing techniques, and others
3. Now what is Love? We usually think that love is a very strong liking or attraction between two people.
Just remember when you were teenager: how many times your mother put up with you! & she still loves you! This is unconditional love!
Love is much more than that. Love is a powerful energy capable to influence people's hearts.
Energy is the capacity to do work or overcome resistance. Energy is power or the capacity to influence. In a Coldplay song, Chris Martin says: "Use your heart as a weapon..., it hurts like heaven"...
One very interesting thing I found in this book is that most of the experts on the fields of love, intimacy, & group support say: "These 3 factors are very powerful in ways that we don't fully understand yet" That wasn't enough for me. I interviewed the 3 energy healing holistic practitioners.
