The Hidden Meanings of Your Dreams:

Physical Physical
The heart shows you’re focusing on truth, courage, love, romance, and how fully you are living. The chest and breasts indicate a focus on pride, generosity, nurturing capacity, and how unprotected and trusting you are.
Emotional Emotional
Problems with the heart, like heartaches or heart attacks, indicate imbalances, loss of love, lack of support and acceptance, or great disappointment. You’re looking at how you deal with feelings and express emotion. Hearing a heartbeat suggests you need to recenter into safety and feelings of being nurtured. A racing heartbeat indicates you’re anxious, upset, and threatened about something.
Spiritual Spiritual
You are focusing on integrating your soul’s wisdom into your life, understanding who you are, how you give unconditional love, and how courageous you are. You want to get to “the heart of the matter,” or the core of a situation, before proceeding.

In the vertical scheme of the human body, the focal points are three in number: the brain, the heart and the sexual organs. But the central point is the heart, and in consequence it comes to partake of the meanings of the other two.
The heart was the only part of the viscera left by the Egyptians in the mummy, since it was regarded as the centre indispensable to the body in eternity; for all centres are symbols of eternity, since time is the motion of the periphery of the wheel of phenomena rotating around the Aristotelian ‘unmoved mover’. In traditional ways of thought, the heart was taken as the true seat of intelligence, the brain being merely instrumental; hence, in ancient attempts to explain the profound and continuing analogies between concepts, the moon was said to correspond to the brain and the sun to the heart.

For the alchemists, the heart was the image of the sun within man, just as gold was the image of the sun on earth. The importance of love in the mystic doctrine of unity explains how it is that love-symbolism came to be closely linked with heart-symbolism, for to love is only to experience a force which urges the lover towards a given centre. In emblems, then, the heart signifies love as the centre of illumination and happiness, and this is why it is surmounted by flames, or a cross, or a fleur-de-lis, or a crown.

In the vertical scheme of the human body there are three basic marks: brain, heart, and genitalia. Heart is thus the central point.

It is no coincidence, therefore, that it was the only organ that the Egyptians left inside mummies. Symbolically, in this organ, life, emotion, and wisdom are concentrated. Furthermore, it is an ancient archetype of love. The dream is probably describing your emotional side and how you approach it with your feelings.

If the heart is damaged, has been operated on, or has a bullet wound, it means that you are going through a bad time. In these cases, the other elements of the dream usually contain advice and recommendations you should to follow. Finally, if the heart is in perfect condition, it reflects you feel very good in emotional matters.

To be pleasantly aware of a heart, as for example a heart-shaped frame or object, is a favorable dream pertaining to love affairs or personal relations. But to dream of having a heart attack, or pain or difficulty with the beat is an omen of contrary and predicts a long and active life.
A dream of having a heartache (regardless of the cause) signifies the reverse, and you can confidently expect your fears and/or worries to evaporate.

The heart is the center of our being and is responsible for pumping life force through us every moment we are alive. It is a symbol of life, passion, and a kind of intelligence that moves slowly and powerfully in the direction of true happiness.
Any dream that features the heart, either literally or symbolically through a shape or depiction of the heart, is expressing something about your current relationship with this intelligence and how it is operating in your experience.

The shape of the heart has become a powerful symbol, especially through the celebration of Valentine’s Day, where the sharing of such a shape is an expression of love and devotion to another person. If this is the heart in your dream, you may be feeling the impulse to make your feelings known.

A broken heart indicates that some process is being undertaken in order to heal some past hurt. Pain, illness, or injury in the heart indicates that some very difficult change is occurring that may be causing a sense of grief and loss in your life.

A heart transplant means that the change has been so great that you need to start over again in the arena of love.

Heart Attack: The sudden and destructive impact of a wounded heart is about abrupt changes and transformation around how you experience love. Results of a heart attack can range from innocuous discomfort to death.
The heart is the symbolic center of love. When love is compromised for too long, the heart may rebel and attack. In this context, when we use the word love, we aren’t necessarily referring to feelings of romantic attachment.

Love is the primary principle on which life is based; anything that opposes love, such as anger, resentment, envy, or pride, is a quality that can have an impact on the heart.
Often the causes of a heart attack go unnoticed for a long time before the actual event occurs. In this way, such a dream image may indicate that the underlying cause of your unconscious discontent may have been lingering below the surface for a long while before this time.
If you are the one having a heart attack in your dream, then look to where in your life issues around love may be hurting you on a deep level. If someone else in your dream is the victim, then use that person as a character aspect of the part of your personality that is suffering due to a matter of love or the lack thereof.

To dream of your own heart means you should listen to your heart right now. It is crying out for your attention. To dream something is wrong with your heart means you have spent far too long ignoring your heart’s needs—physical or emotional.
