Your Hand and Your Heart

Spread the love

What do you do when you have a tummy ache….or, at least, what do you wish you could do when you have a tummy ache?

You curl up into the fetal position.

What do you do when you have a pounding migraine?

You rest your head in your hands.

What do you do when you stub your toe?

You bounce around on one leg while holding your other foot in your hands.

What do you do when you have a sore muscle?

You give yourself a massage.

What do you do when you have a toothache?

You {probably} do the ‘Home Alone’ by putting your hands on your cheeks.

Our hands have some sort of magical healing power over us. For some reason, anything that hurts we just place our hands on the area and it instantly begins to feel better…I don’t know why that is – maybe the pressure, or the body warmth – but it’s inevitable, I always go for the comfort of my own hand when I’m in pain. It just feels better.

Other people’s hands – even complete strangers – can heal too. I mean, how many hugs {pre-pandemic that is} have you given/received that make things just a little bit better…?

So, why does it seem so uncomfortable to put your hand over your heart when your heart hurts? We do it for literally every other part of our body…. Why is it so ‘wrong’ to do the same for our ‘insides’?

Touching the area that hurts acknowledges the pain – both inwardly and outwardly. It brings focus to the hurt – and somehow relieves it…just a smidge.

When I realized that our natural reaction to physical pain is also perfectly acceptable for emotional pain it was almost like an epiphany. I’ve been more aware of those around me and how they respond to their pain as well…and have even suggested a hand on the heart…

So, if you’re having feels can I suggest you ‘give your heart a hug’? Place your hand over your heart and feel the mystical, magical healing powers of that touch.

Do you have suggestions on ways to help heal your heart? Please leave your comments below and share the knowledge!
