WHAT IS THE HEART
The human heart is much more than an efficient pump that sustains life, actually it is the most powerful source of electromagnetic energy in your body, with an electrical field that is about 60 times greater than the brain, and a magnetic field that is over 100 times greater. So next time, someone asks you to use your brain and not your heart, tell them to give it a second thought.
Our heart affects our mental clarity, creativity, emotional balance and intuition on a very deep level. We literally have a heart-brain, with neural circuitry that allows our heart to feel, sense, learn, remember, and even make decisions, which means they are not separated.
Today, I wanna speak to you about how much they are complementary, forming an access point to a source of intelligence that we can call upon to better increase personal effectiveness, improve health and relationships and achieve greater fulfillment.
If you wonder how they communicate, here is a little hint. The heart is, in fact, a highly complex information-processing center with its own functional brain, commonly called the heart brain, functioning via the nervous system, hormonal system and other pathways. These influences affect brain function and most of the body’s major organs and play an important role in mental and emotional experience and the quality of our lives.
Love is a biological process involving more science than magic.
Let’s say you’re experiencing love, the body starts releasing “the elixir of love,” which consists of hormones through three phases : lust, attraction and attachment. If you are familiar with what dopamine, adrenaline and oxytocin mean so you know what I’m talking about. Of course, there are other factors that I can’t explain scientifically but I recommend you to read ‘’ Science of the heart”, it will help you understand that the communication between the heart and brain is a dynamic, ongoing, two-way dialogue, with each organ continuously influencing the other’s function.
Research has shown that the heart communicates to the brain in four major ways: neurologically (through the transmission of nerve impulses), biochemically (via hormones and neurotransmitters), biophysically (through pressure waves) and energetically (through electromagnetic field interactions). Communication along all these conduits significantly affects the brain’s activity.
It becomes clear that the age-old struggle between intellect and emotion will not be resolved by the mind gaining dominance over the emotions, but rather by increasing the harmonious balance between the mental and emotional systems – a synthesis that provides greater access to our full range of intelligence.
I am very attached to speaking about the matters of the heart, it’s a never ending conversation and a rich topic to learn and discover.
