The Energy field of the Heart
The heart is the first organ to form in the body. It is the organizing factor for physical formation, including the formation of the brain.
The heart contains extensive brain-like neural matter ( just like the neurons that send messages in our brains) and has recently been classified as a gland because it produces its own hormones.
In addition to our cerebral brain, we indeed have a "heart brain."
The heart not only puts out its own balancing and regulating hormones, but also instantaneously communicates electromagnetic and chemical information to the rest of the body and to other bodies near it.
When two people touch, the heartwave of one can be seen registering in the brainwave of the other.
Research by the Institute for HeartMath in California has shown that the heart is the most powerful generator of electromagnetic energy in the human body:
The heart's electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity generated by the brain.
The magnetic field produced by the heart is more than 5000 times greater in strength than the field generated by the brain.
The electromagnetic energy of the heart not only envelops every cell of the human body, but also extends out in all directions in the space around us.
Our cardiac field touches those within 8 - 10 feet of where we are positioned (and perhaps in more subtle ways at greater distances).
One person's heart signal can effect another's brainwaves, and heart-brain synchronization can occur between two people when they interact.
Research conducted at the Institute of HeartMath suggests that the heart's field is an important carrier of information.
Here below is a Heart Coherence Exercise from Heartmath wonderful for energising and strengthening our hearts.
Step 1: Heart Focus
Gently focus your attention on your in the area of your heart.It may help to place your hand over your heart. If your mind wanders just keep bringing your attention back to the area of your heart.
As you focus on the area of your heart , pretend your breath is flowing in and out through that area. This helps your mind and energy to stay focused and your respiration and hearth rhythms to synchronise. Breath slowly and gently, until your breathing feels smooth and balanced.
As you continue to breathe, recall a positive feeling, a time when you ' felt good inside.' Now try
to re experience the feeling. This could be a feeling of appreciation or care toward a special person, a pet, a place you enjoy, or an activity that was fun. Allow yourself to really' feel ' this good feeling of appreciation or care. If you can't feel anything, it's okay, just try to find a sincere attitude of appreciation or care. Once you have found a positive feeling or attitude, you can sustain it by continuing your heart focus, heart breathing, and heart feeling.
