When you close your heart, it's like closing the door on your energy center or chakra. That might seem like a good idea at first, but if you give it some thought, you'll realize that when you close off your heart, you're also closing yourself off to the source of all energy.
That can lead to some severe problems. If you lack energy—and we're talking about the energy that keeps your mind and body healthy, not just the energy that helps you get through the day—you'll find yourself turning to less-than-healthy activities to fill the void.
And if those activities turn out to be negative or unhealthy? Well, then you end up in a vicious cycle: You want more energy than you have, so you do things that take away from your current amount of energy; then, when those things wear off and leave you with less than before, you start looking for new ways to fill up again… and on and on.
