In my last blog post, I wrote about how we lost Joey, our cat of 16 years. And how I had my eye on a new cat, Buddy. The writeup said he was ready to save a new human with his unconditional love.”

I did end up learning lessons from Buddy the cat. Not about love, but about the Heart, grief, and the power of the Halo.

It all started when the foster mom for Buddy called on Monday to offer to bring the cat to my house. I thought, “Why not?” But I didn’t really pray about it or check in with my Heart.

Well, the foster mom for Buddy called on Monday to offer to bring the cat to my house. I thought, “Why not?” But I didn’t really pray about it or check in with my Heart.

On Tuesday foster mom Rita brought Buddy by. He was very shy, but we finally coaxed him out of his hiding place. He rubbed up against our legs and allowed us to pet him. Read More→

I'm not the one who made this statement. King Solomon did, more than 3000 years ago.

One of the wisest people who ever lived said, "Guard your heart above all else, for from it flow the issues of life" (Proverbs 4:23).

I have two friends who love to study Hebrew "root words." They inform me that this verse says that from the heart flow 100% of the issues of life.

So then, what is "the heart" that we're supposed to guard?

According to Dr. Alex Loyd, author of The Healing Code, and his spiritual mentor, Larry Napier, the heart is the inner person that contains all the unconscious, subconscious, conscious thoughts, images, beliefs, and feelings, plus the will and conscience. It's the whole person, but it's more than what we are conscious of.

In the "heart" are stored all the images and beliefs we have encountered and adopted. And these images and beliefs literally reverberate through the cells of our bodies, influencing how we feel, how we act, our relationships, our success, and even our physical health.

Jesus said it was out of the heart that the mouth speaks. Elsewhere in the Bible, it talks about the need for a a transformation. Transformation is needed not just for the mind, but for the heart.

So healing of the whole person starts with healing the heart. Not the physical heart, but this "heart" that is the center and source of everything in our lives. This heart needs healing, and it needs guarding.

That's what this blog is all about: how to heal heart issues. I will explore it from a number of angles, scientific and spiritual.

I welcome your feedback at any time!
