    Normally you don't know that your heart is beating. If you can feel it, you are aware that it is beating. That's what palpitations are.

    Some people are more sensitive than others and that can be related to all our senses. "Awareness of heart beat" means that a person can literally feel his/her own heartbeat. Usually these people are in a state of panic, or are in general extremely sensitive.
