Personally, I’ve always thought of my brain as the physical lifeline, to not only my health and wellbeing, but intuition, strength and creativity. Guess what, it’s not. These things actually come from our heart. This may seem somewhat voodoo’ish, but stick with me…
When we feel emotion we often touch our hearts. It’s intuitive and there’s a reason for it.
The most electromagnetic organ in our bodies is our heart. It generates up to 1,000 times more power and energy than our brain. It is the most powerful organ in the human body.
In 1991 scientist made a discovery: Every human heart has about 40,000 specialized cells that have a neural network. They are brain like cells, but in the heart. They call it “the little brain in the heart” and they are sensory neurites = nerve cells within the nervous system responsible for converting external stimuli from the organism’s environment into internal electrical impulses. Scientist have discovered these cells think, feel, and remember independently of the brain.
Research has shown the heart communicates with the brain and body in four ways:
- Neurologically through the transmission of nerve impulses via the CNS (central nervous system).
- Biochemically via hormones and neurotransmitters.
- Biophysically via pulse/ pressure waves
- Energetically through electromagnetic field interactions
Communication along all these conduits significantly affect the brain’s activity. Research has shown that messages the heart sends to the brain can also affect performance. The data suggest that as people experience sincere positive feeling states, in which the heart’s rhythms become more coherent, the changed information that flow from the heart to the brain may act to modify cortical function and influence performance.
When we have bad experiences, those memories are stored in both the brain and the heart, and therefore we have to address both in order to have complete healing.
When we truly understand how amazing our heart energy is, from a physiological and electromagnetic point of view, we know the importance of listening to our heart. When we reach heart coherence, a state of being connected, there is understanding, acceptance and unconditional love for ourselves and others.
