Why is the heart located on the left side of the human body? Why not in the center? Why not the right side?

You get extra points if you can relate this to the Tree of Life, and energy flow in the body.

The Tree Of Life (Otz Chiim) is IMO non existent in the human aura. It's created by meditations. But Nature works in a different way, from my personnal experience.

IMO, the heart's place should in reality polarized, in the middle the polarity is too neutral for it to work properly, that's why it is an one side, some persons are dextrocards and have their heart on the right side also.
Now, it's on the left side because the polarity of the left side of the body allow it and promote it, it's more feminine = flow.

!!! Really?! I had no idea. That's very interesting. They call this a 'defect.'

I will reply more in depth when I wake up, and get food in my body.

In fact, dextrocards have ALL the internal organs reversed in the body, but everything is perfectly functionnal.

"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." - Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)
Sri Ramana Maharshi was known to quote this to reinforce his doctrine of the spiritual heart (Hridayam) being located some 2" left of the right nipple.

Some say Hridaya Chakra is right under the Anahata. One the center line.

I can't say, until I verify the fact.

I thought enough of this poster to have it framed for our meditation room (which triples for a computer room and a spare bedroom with futon). It does not describe the four-faced image that is centerline between the major Anahata and Visshuda chakras, but you can see it even here:

It is my understanding that right beside the heart, is located our soul. What the heart experiences, the soul records. They're kind of like a married couple.

There's a lot in it, including some lesser known centers. I couldn't resist making it part of our home 'setting.' Kudos to the artist.

From Ramana Maharshi's point of view, the Hridayam's location is only a question if one is still firmly identified with the body, which is 'woven' from the fabric of space-time, like everything else. If absorbed in Superconsciousness, 'God is a sphere whose Center is everywhere, and whose circumference is nowhere.'

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Situs_inversus


The term situs inversus is a short form of the Latin phrase "situs inversus viscerum", meaning "inverted position of the internal organs". Dextrocardia (the heart being located on the right side of the thorax) was first seen and drawn by Leonardo da Vinci in 14521519, and then recognised by Marco Aurelio Severino in 1643. However, situs inversus was first described more than a century later by Matthew Baillie.
