The Circulatory System

The circulatory system is affected by our female energy and because of this we see dreams often link problems in this area with mother. Mother may not have bonded properly with us at birth and because of this as an infant we feel unloved. A new infant learns how to love from mother. If mother does not give love unconditionally (e.g. white heart presented to dreamer in dream) the dreamer has missed out on a vital lesson which is likely to lead to difficulty with understanding his/her own feelings. The normal reaction is to suppress the negative feelings or lack of love from mother and to rationalize things instead of feeling them. People who operate this way find it difficult to show compassion towards others. They show love in the way they learned. If you live up to my expectations then I'll love you - if you fall short of my standards I'll withdraw my love.

The heart requires emotional flow to stay balanced and healthy. Emotional problems only lead to physical problems if balance is not restored. The flow must be in both directions! People who constantly give of themselves and never receive are as likely to develop physical problems as those who never give.

Colors

Green is the color of the heart chakra and is always indicative of the heart, emotions or circulatory system in a dream. Dark green indicates envy or difficulty with sharing. Green with red (color of passion / energy) is always indicative of the circulatory system. Pink represents unconditional love and is also common in dreams about the heart. The presence of pink alone in a dream is sufficient to determine that the dreamer did not bond with mother at birth.
