The Power of the Heart…


“Our greatest strength lies in the
gentleness and tenderness of our heart.” -Rumi

Living life from the heart is connecting to your intuition, an infinite well of love, deep peace, the spirit and soul in everyone and all of nature. Modern day science is discovering more and more that the heart has a wisdom and power that can positively transform ourselves, others and the world.

Did you know that your heart emits electromagnetic fields 5,000 times greater than that of your brain that change according to your emotions? Did you know that you can boost your immune system by conjuring up positive emotions? Did you know that negative emotions can create nervous system chaos, and that positive emotions do the complete opposite?  Did you know that the heart has a system of neurons that have both short term and long term memory, and that their signals sent to the brain can affect our emotional experiences? Did you know that in fetal development, the heart forms and starts beating before the brain is developed?  Did you know that the heart sends more information to the brain than vice versa? Did you know that the heart can emit feel good hormones, only thought to be produced in the brain, such as oxytocin, otherwise known as the ‘love hormone’ that helps us to feel happy, safe and loved?

Researchers at the Institute of HeartMath have examined how the heart and brain communicate with each other and how that affects our consciousness and the way in which we perceive our world. Their research has shed light on a number of interesting facts, for example, when a person is feeling really positive emotions such as gratitude, love, or appreciation, the heart beats out a large electromagnetic field that not only has a positive affect on others but can even create a positive effect on the electromagnetic field of the earth!

The Institute of HeartMath calls this state of being “achieving heart coherence” – a scientifically validated state in which your heart and brain are energetically aligned and cooperating with one another. When you experience this coherence, you may feel an inner calm and other positive emotions that decrease stress and improve your well being, mental clarity, cognitive functioning and performance.

Would you like to heal stress, recurring negative memories, negative self-talk or negative thoughts?

An easy way to achieve this is through ‘heart coherence’; bringing your mind and your heart into energetic alignment.

All you need to do is place your hands upon your heart and imagine that you are breathing long, deep breaths into your heart. As you focus purely on breathing into your heart, do your best to imagine that your heart is ‘actually breathing’. In the next minute or two, you will be feeling calmer. It is in this calm state that you can allow a very positive memory to enter your mind and feel the positive emotions from this memory filling up your heart…stay with this positive memory and feelings as long as you like…You have now achieved a state of ‘heart coherence’-It’s that simple!

If you would like to live your life by accessing your deepest heart wisdom and serve the world in a meaningful way, please watch the following video by the Institute of HeartMath explaining the heart’s intelligence and it’s role in happiness, human interaction, and global coherence.
