The Heart-Brain Connection and Coherence: Making Contact with your Heart
Every second of our life, our heart and brain are in constant communication. This is one of the most important conversations we will ever find ourselves engaged in.
It is long been known that emotions have a physiological impact on our bodies; Research conducted by HeartMath shows that the electromagnetic current of the heart is sixty times higher in amplitude than the field of the brain’s one. The heart’s electromagnetic field can be measured more than ten feet from the body. This energetic field pulses waves of energy carrying information whilst synchronising other processes in the body.
Modern medicine has come to believe that the heart is just a simple pump. Far from this view, the heart has played an important role in understanding the body since ancient times. Research by John and Beatrice Lacey in the 1060s and 1070s demonstrated that the heart was not just a simple pump but also an organ of great intelligence, with its own nervous system, decision-making powers, and connections to the brain. These researchers found that the heart is in constant communication with the brain, affecting how we perceive and react to the world.
This is called heart coherence, an important mechanism – known to be overlooked by modern medicine – which explains how the heart communicates with the brain and the rest of the organs in order to bring synchronicity into our life.
