About Liz Butler
(in her own words)

In the summer of 2019, during a crossroads moment in my career, I woke up one morning knowing with absolute certainty that I needed to write a book about the heart. I had been interested in the heart for a while, but previously had no thoughts of writing a book, or even exploring the heart in such detail. Several years later, after an intense period of research and writing, the first draft of my book is written and I have discovered my life’s purpose at this point – to share the heart’s story and powerful message with as many people as possible.


My career began 23 years ago as a nutritional therapist supporting people with cancer. A degree in Biochemistry, diploma in Nutritional Therapy, and a Masters degree in Nutritional Medicine qualified me to do such work, however, it was life experience and my interest in spirituality that taught me most about what encourages healing. During my time as a nutritional therapist, I headed the nutrition teams at two UK cancer charities, lectured at various colleges, and spoke regularly at conferences. I also contributed to scientific papers and wrote the nutrition chapter for the book Enhancing Cancer Care, Complementary Therapy and Support. However, although I found the work rewarding, I was struck by the limits of a healthy diet when emotional and spiritual issues remain unaddressed, and came to realise true healing only occurs when our body and mind align with the deeper meaning spiritual connection brings to our lives. I have since learnt that we can discover this deeper meaning by tuning into the wisdom of our hearts.


In the last 10 years, I have expanded my therapeutic training. As a HeartMath Coach, I support people in connecting to their energetic heart, and through various exercises, help them achieve a state of heart coherence. My training in the Energy Psychologies; Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Matrix Reimprinting, allows me to support individuals in releasing old emotional pain, freeing up energy for healing and further encouraging heart coherence. Since childhood I have been interested in the Big Questions of life and have followed a life-long path of personal spiritual study. I am particularly interested in the Perennial Wisdom and currently I'm studying for a Higher Diploma in Theosophy. The combination of my therapeutic training and years of spiritual study allows me to support people in deepening their spiritual awareness and bringing this all together, I have created a model for emotional and physical healing that fully engages and utilises the power of the heart; Heart Matrix Therapy.


We live in challenging times; however, I am certain, the healing power of our hearts has the potential to save us and save our planet. Many wise people know this and they are working hard to highlight the transformational abilities of the heart. I am committed to the same goal and through this website intend to showcase mine and other's work so that the heart may find its way back to where it has always belonged - at the very centre of our lives.

"There is no need to run outside for better seeing nor to peer from a window.  Rather abide at the centre of your being; for the more you leave it, the less you learn. Search your heart and see, if he is wise who take each turn: the way to do is to be".

Lao Tzu

About the heart

The heart is central in our lives and yet we know so little about it. Despite our recent technological advances, the heart remains an unsolved mystery. When we speak of the heart, we could be referring to the physical organ, but equally we could mean the energetic heart or the metaphysical/spiritual heart. All three have a vital role in our lives and without one, the others couldn’t exist. Scientists believe they know a fair amount about the physical organ, but even though cardiac surgeons are able to save lives with heart transplants, there are still many unanswered questions. It is not even clear how the heart pumps our blood (or even, if it does!).


While there are still many gaps in our knowledge of the physical heart, we know even less about the energetic and spiritual hearts. These hearts are closely intertwined and deep within the energy centre situated in the middle of our breastbone is the point at which our individual soul connects with Universal Spirit. Although modern science knows little about these hearts, our ancient ancestors knew a lot more. We are wise to tap into this ancient knowledge because from this we can learn to awaken our heart and listen to its guidance. 

In the ancient Eastern scriptures, the spiritual heart is depicted as a Lotus flower. The lotus, found in lakes and ponds, first begins to sprout under the water amongst the mud and dirt. It pushes itself up to clearer water and eventually emerges above the surface where, in the light of the sun, it slowly opens it petals to unveil its pristine beauty. Our true essence, found within our spiritual heart, also remains untouched by the impurities of our material world. If we focus on higher attainment, we too will leave the dirt behind and move towards the light. As we bask in the warmth of Universal Love our hearts will open to reveal the perfection of who we are.

"Your heart is full of fertile seeds, waiting to sprout. Just as a lotus flower springs from the mire to bloom splendidly, the interaction of the cosmic breath causes the flower of the spirit to bloom and bear fruit in this world.".

Morihei Ueshiba
