HEALTH TIPS OF THE MONTH
The Electromagnetic Field Of The Heart
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.
We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
Are you aware that the heart can produce an electrical field 100 times greater than the brain and a magnetic field up to 5000 times greater? Conventional science has taught us that the main role of the heart is to pump blood to all the systems of our body. However, the heart has an intelligence of its own. Different research helped to demonstrate that our heart can have a greater impact on our physiology than our brain. Every cause of disease first begins with an imbalance in the body’s energy systems, specifically the interaction between how the heart communicates with the brain and the body. We refer to the term energy for what we can not ear, see or touch, like our intuitions, thoughts, and emotions. When we realize that the verbal language is probably a mere percentage of our human communication, it is hard to believe that we never acknowledged this in our culture, and that we have not learned to consciously perceive, with the help of our body ( which is talking to us at all time), the large part of the remaining information that we are registering or sending out. According to the science of neurocardiology, 60 to 65 percent of heart cells are neuron cells, not muscle cells. Its neurons have short term and long term memories and their signals sent to the brain can affect our emotional experiences. Therefore, it is easier to understand how our perceptions can have a powerful influence on our state of well-being. The intuitive energetic heart is what people have associated with, as their inner voice throughout history, our instinct, 6th sense…or our truth! And either it may guide us unconsciously or not, it is a powerful energetic resource that gives presence and coherence, when we take the time to consciously connect with this inner voice. As demonstrated by 20 years of research by the team at Heartmath Institute *( see the inspiration of the month below), our psycho physiological coherence ( harmony, quality of forming a unified whole), is what determines our heart rate variability and what shall affect our other body systems and functions. Thoughts and emotions such as stress, frustrations and anxiety affects the pattern of the heart beat in a chaotic manner, depleting our energy and whole organism. Fear and stress affect us on a cellular level contributing to hypertension, indigestion, chronic back problems, anxiety and depression, autoimmune diseases, heart diseases, cancer etc.. Contrarily, emotions of love, compassion and gratitude harmonize and soften the cardiac rhythm while enhancing our general health. Our mind and heart feelings are powerful energetic sources and most likely the primary drivers of our biological systems. Which one are you choosing to use to heal?
2. Every day, think of someone who has helped you and thank them in your heart. When you can, find ways to help someone around you, and make her or him feel that you care.
3. The most precious gift we can offer to someone is to be fully present, deeply listening.
4. Before starting any work, pause a moment to see how you are feeling about your current tasks. See and feel what you want to experience, the desired end results and feelings that will come with this.
5. What is it that you yearn to create or experience in your life? A new project? With whom? For what purpose? Imagine it in details. Be specific about colours, feelings, textures, emotions, sounds, smells. Feel everything...not just how it looks, but the feeling of completion and success regarding the experience being manifested. Entertain the feeling of celebration that arises in your heart. From this space of clarity, you can take the appropriate steps to make it happen.
6. Celebrate every little successes. We can be so critical and so hard on ourselves, and it can prevent us from seeing our own accomplishments. We compare ourselves to others…but really, who would be us?
7. After your tasks of the day, or before sleep at the latest, give thanks and clear any stressful or unresolved emotions. Do not take them home or push them down for the next day to come.
8. Smile – The ultimate adaptation to the fast pace of our world is to be in complete peace in the midst of chaos. Learn how to smile like a child. Why do we feel happier around children? Because they smile a lot, around at least 40 times a hour. While most of us smile only few times in one hour, the average of us smiles only 20 times a day! Smiling can change your brain, through a powerful feedback loop. It reduces stress-induced hormones that negatively affect your physical and mental health, generating more positive emotions within you.

I see no reason why intelligence may not be transmitted instantaneously by electricity.”
