Belief in the heart as a psychic structure dates to ancient
times and stems from the characteristic responses of that organ
to emotional crises. Some mystical writers have posited the idea
of a subtle or spiritual heart center located slightly to the right
of the physical heart.
In the Bible (Eccles. 102) it is said that the heart of the wise
is at the right side and the heart of the foolish at the left. This
proverb parallels the ancient Hindu yoga concept of the anahata
chakra, or subtle heart center, which yogis have experienced
as slightly to the right side in the body
