: How did the heart ever get connected to our emotions...after all...its a machine...pumping blood

Strong emotions often bring bodily responses that cause sensations in the chest, such as heart palpitations. In emotional states, we may change our posture and breathe differently. Some of this is spine, some muscles, and some lungs, but subjectively it can be attributed to heart stuff. I think that's how.
