The Heart as the Unifier

25 Jun, 2020
As we approach summer, the season of the Heart (Fire Element), there is so much going on in the world around us that could trouble our hearts. In the view of Classical Chinese Medicine the primary function of the Heart is to open our awareness of unity and to help us to experience connection and community. The Heart is the “unifier” and is said to define our humanity. It is the home of our spirit. Especially in times of discord it is our hearts that yearn for unity. The Summer Solstice is the point where yin and yang come together and it is said that this is where the Heart sits, at this point of the unity of the yin and yang energies. The analytical mind divides, it perceives from the perspective of good or bad/beneficial or detrimental. The Heart recognizes the unity of everything, that there is purpose in everything and that all experiences are vehicles for transformation. The Heart is said to be the “voice of sacredness” that helps us to connect with our true humanity.
