Healing Herbs for the Heart

As many of you know, the heart is spiritually one of the most synergistically difficult things to heal. The heart needs a lot of attention and can often change within a single second. A lot of us in these times have experienced heartache due to mistrust, loss or disappointment so its something that all of us can relate to.

For obvious reasons of heart wrench, it is important to know that the happiness you strive for lives within. If someone or something is causing you heartache, remove it. Whether it be finding a new job, leaving a bad partner or standing up for yourself and gaining control.

While this may be happening, try including heart warming herbs and good intention. Focus your energy to your heart and listen to what it has to say.
