To a degree beyond belief, the heart performs the most influential role in the body.
We have been taught that it is only our brain that is in control, while the rest of our body obediently responds to its commands. Although the brain is important, this misconception is not the case and mainstream science has now revealed the full story.
The Institute of HeartMath, a nonprofit research and education organization, has uncovered these revolutionary findings and is continuing to research this significant relationship between the heart and the brain. With over two decades of scientifically validated research, their examinations serve to explain exactly to what extent the heart contributes to our daily lives.
Research from HeartMath has introduced that not only the brain, but also the heart itself is an intelligent system. These studies indicate specifically how the heart sends more information to the brain than vice versa.
HeartMath has recorded the heart to be approximately 60 times greater electrically and up to 5,000 times stronger magnetically than the brain. This awareness places the brain relatively weak in comparison to the heart.
The Institute’s scientific breakthrough has also led them to new understandings about the link between the heart and emotions, revealing the significance of the heart’s electromagnetic field that changes according to emotional states.
In terms of emotional balance and health, HeartMath’s studies support a greater necessity in paying attention to how you feel. The better you feel, the more your heart and brain are working synergistically together. According to their studies, when you are feeling negative emotions the reaction becomes the opposite. In activating this synergy, the body can function more harmoniously by reaching a state of balance and clarity.
HeartMath has pinpointed the precise measure for the heart’s optimum signal of synergy with the brain, and they are dedicated to inform us how to activate it intentionally. By holding what the Institute calls “genuine core heart feelings”, such as gratitude or compassion, the heart emits a signal that they call coherence.
In order to help individuals under difficult or negative situations, the Institute of HeartMath has developed several techniques explaining how to align into coherence in an easy and practical manner.
In my next article, I will be covering the science behind HeartMath and exploring these connections more closely!
