I ahev been here before in my life and that fact that you are aware of your heart is the reason why it seems like a bigger deal than it is. Yor doctor is correct and it isnt a big deal at all, but with the label such as "mild Mitral Valve Prolapse" you would have been led to believe that it was a physical condition but it isnt! You need to STOP placing your attention on where your attention is not needed! Your unconscious has everything it needs to beat your heart for you, just as it automatically heals you when youscrape your knee. This process is automatic and trying to consciously intevene is less than useless. Stop purposly putting your conscious attention on where it isnt needed, all of that time you using to focus on your heard beating easily by itself, you could be using to focus on other things that mean alot to you in ways that allow yu to experience more please in your daily life.
You never need to worry about what is already and naturally automaticly operating from birth, just know that your body does its job correctly and effeciantly and PUURFECTLY in all the ways its supposed to. Your body plays the role of your supportive partner in life, more so than something that you thought you had to control. Think of your body and heart as something that supports you in your positive daily endevours and future desires towards creating a better life. Be grateful for your body and become amazed at what it heas been doing for you all this time without you having to think about it at all! From now on make this your new direction of focus and habit and come up with a list of reasons for why and HOW doing this will benefit you. This wil help you to shift your perception in new and better areas that serve you.
Trust me iv already been there.... but you must realize that its ultimately and completly silliy to be purposly doing something that doesnt ultimately need any attention whats-so-ever! Realize that your body does it all FOR YOU!
