The heart is congested when the body is full of heartache. Heartache comes from unrequited love, unfulfilled dreams, loneliness, blocked arteries, and hunger for nutrition.
Unrequited love can be present in and out of relationships. A committed relationship does not guarantee that the heart is receiving its share of love. A heart requires loving relationships that pump it full of emotional sustenance. When relationships lack surety of love, the emotional sustenance is reduced and the heart is susceptible to illness.
Unfulfilled dreams cause narrowing throughout the body: narrowing of passageways, messaging, and performance. Unfulfilled dreams open to illness and disease, and enable congestion to enter the heart.
Loneliness has direct dialogue with the heart. It harms the heart through sad thoughts and empty conversations.
Blocked arteries cause physical symptoms that are operable. Unblocking the arteries can clear congestion in the heart, but the congestion can return when the causes of the artery blockage are not lifted. Artery blockage is related to food intake, oxygen sufficiency, and sleep deprivation.
Hunger for nutrition is tricky. The heart hungers for food sources that are rich in nutritional goodness. The heart hungers for regular reinforcements of energy to keep the beat. The heart hungers for just enough and not too much. The heart hungers for relaxed ingestion. And the heart hungers for love.
An uncongested heart requires heartfelt relationships, a life lived authentically, companionship, nutritional reliability, rhythm in activities, and rhythm in nature.

The actions we take are influenced by our thoughts and by our bodies. Yes, our bodies take part in the things we decide to do. Our organs and some of our bodily systems influence our actions.
Here are actions that the heart influences. Some may surprise you!
- Deeply felt love
- Deeply felt loneliness
The heart provides input to the thought=making processes AND continues its work pumping blood.

The appendix, one of the most misunderstood organs, is responsible for initiating many defensive actions in the body. Its connection to the heart is through prompting the heart to speed up when blood flow is sluggish and to slow down when wounds compromise life force (because too much blood is being lost to sustain life).
The appendix and the heart generally function independently of one another. Their tasks are complementary, yet separate. Only when blood flow is compromised does the appendix initiate heart-related activity.
For people whose appendixes have been removed, these activities are not transferred to other organs or systems in the body (unlike other healing activities that are transferred, as mentioned in the post “How does the body heal when the appendix is removed?”).

Your heart is truly your best friend. It keeps you going when you feel down or defeated. In its quiet way, it pushes you to live up to your potential. It rarely complains when you ignore it, and it rewards you with love when you care for it.
If you listen intently to your heart, you will feel some of the best advice you will ever receive! If you notice your heart’s company, it will reward your friendship. And if you give your heart your loyalty, it will give you support until its dying day.

The heart isn’t really your best friend, because a best friend is a person outside of yourself. When you find people to be your companions and support system, be sure to listen to your heart and its wisdom. Your heart can help you choose the people who will matter most.
Caveat: Don’t use the heart as an excuse for choosing companions unwisely, as described in the post “The heart wants what it wants”.

People love in different ways. Some feel love when they are in the presence of others who love them. Some feel love when they are quietly contemplating the things and people that give them pleasure.
Some people express their love with acts of caring and others express their love through words. The expressions of love are all valid, because they all reflect strong feelings of devotion.
Love expressions grow and change with age, experiences, and understanding. The growth can be larger or smaller, and the change can be optimistic or pessimistic. Expressions of love reflect social norms and individual ideas.
The recipients of love expressions can appreciate these expressions of love, no matter their own preferred styles of expression, when they are prepared to be appreciative. Being prepared to be appreciative means being willing to accept the loved ones’ displays of affection and their shortcomings. Without appreciation, expressions of love can dwindle and become tainted.
For love to “succeed”, each person must recognize that all of us feel love differently. Our differences are natural. We can adapt ourselves to the people we love, but it’s our differences that actually keep us together.
