The Heart Brain


In the 1970s scientists discovered that the heart has an elaborate nervous system.  This discovery created a new branch of medicine known as neurocardiology.  The brain in our heads is actually obeying signals sent from the brain of the heart.  With every beat the heart is sending out messages that affect our emotional and physical health. 

Our left brain is apparently operating at 15kb / second while our right brain is apparently operating at 20million kb / second.  We don’t know how fast our heart brain is operating at but we do know that the electromagnetic field around our heart is 4000 times greater than the field of our brain.  The heart is easily the most powerful organ (muscle) in our bodies.  Our hearts are the first formed, before the brain.  The heart beats about 100’000 times a day, 40 million times a year, and if its connection to the brain is severed, it will keep right on beating.

Scientists have made many interesting discoveries about the heart brain:

-          The electromagnetic signal radiating from our hearts is actually detectable and measurable in the brain waves of another person.  The phenomenon is strongest when two people are touching or are in close proximity but measurable at a distance as well.

-          An EKG reading can be taken from any point on the body AND any point in the electromagnetic field because the field itself contains the information in a three dimensional or holographic way.

-          The field of energy is doughnut-shaped and is configured in a torus about five to eight feet (1.5 to 2.5 meters) in diameter (this is not the aura or chakra which are more sensitive fields);

-          There are measurable positive effects on the body when we feel love and appreciation not only to someone else but to ourselves also.  The same beneficial affect occurs in our own body when we are on the receiving end – when love and appreciation are being broadcast toward us;

-           The order of reaction in the body occurs first in the heart followed by the brain then the physical body.  In studies where individuals were presented with a series of images causing either emotional response or not researchers discovered that not only did the heart respond before the brain but that the heart was responding fractionally before the response images appeared.  The heart showed no response with the non response images.  The heart is implying precognitive response. The scientists say that time is only perception. 

-          There is considerable evidence that the heart contains memories and feels.  A large number of heart transplant recipients have reported new food and drink preferences and cravings, as well as handwriting changes, musical preferences, and memories that don’t seem to be their own.

Between 1992 and 1995 studies were carried out to test the effects of human emotion on DNA.  According to Glen Rein and Rollin McCraty, the principal researchers, this physiological state may be created intentionally by “using specially designed mental and emotional self-management techniques which involve intentionally quieting the mind, shifting one’s awareness to the heart area and focusing on positive emotions.”  They performed a series of tests involving up to five people trained in applying coherent emotion.  Using special techniques that analyze the DNA chemically and visually, the researchers could detect any changes that happened. 

The results were undeniable and the implications were unmistakable.  The bottom line:  Human emotion changed the shape of the DNA.  Without physically touching it or doing anything other than creating precise feelings in their bodies, the participants were able to influence the DNA molecules in the beaker.

In the first experiment, which involved only one person, effects were produced by a combination of “direct intention, unconditional love and specific imagery of the DNA molecule.”  In the words of one of the researchers “These experiments revealed that different intentions produced different effects on the DNA molecule causing it to either wind or unwind.” 

We have been conditioned to believe that the state of the DNA in our body is a given.  Contemporary thinking suggests that it’s a fixed quantity – we “get what we get” when we’re born – and with the exception of drugs, chemicals, and electrical fields, our DNA doesn’t change in respect to anything that we can do in our lives.  But this experiment shows us that nothing could be further from the truth.
