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).

According to what those who study Hebrew root words for this verse,  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  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 The Healing Codes do. In fact, that’s all The Healing Codes do.

Yet, when “heart issues” heal, so much else heals along with it. Physical issues, relationship issues, even success issues.

That’s because “all issues are heart issues.” Solomon hit it precisely. The truth has always been there. We just haven’t always seen it.

Heal your heart, then guard your heart. It’s the wellspring of your whole life.
