What is your heart? And how could it change the World?
The simple answer of course, is that it is an essential organ required to pump blood around your body. But is it more than that?
Back as far as 1983 scientists were beginning to realise that the heart was more than the pump that kept our blood flowing. They discovered that it was actually part of the hormonal system, actively releasing hormones to combat stress.
So, have you ever considered that your heart has intelligence? I am going to list some scientifically proven facts about our hearts from The HeartMath Institute.
People have long believed that the heart is home to our emotions. We attribute feelings such as love and compassion to our heart, as it feels physically like these things pour from our chest….and we have been right! Our heart is the strongest source of electrical energy in our body. It has been measured at 40-60 times stronger than our brain!
We know that stress has a negative impact on our nervous system….and our heart rate is the clearest indicator of emotional states. The rates and rhythms become erratic when we are under pressure. This disorder affects the nervous system and the whole body. When we are able to change our vibe to a positive one, we can work towards a coherent state. With the heart and brain working together we are able to access a higher thinking capacity. The heart therefore influences intelligence and awareness.
This fascinating video below demonstrates how this can be useful on not only a personal level, but also on a social and even Global level.
