Last week Sara Childre wrote about research on heart intelligence and how our physical heart communicates with our brain in ways that can bring us more mental clarity and intuition. This week Iíll talk about how a spiritual or energetic heart may be interfacing with the physical heart through the heartís intelligence.
Researchers have found evidence that our heartís electromagnetic field (generated by each heartbeat) forms an energy field that is coupled to a field of information not bound by the classic limits of time and space. The term spiritual heart or energetic heart refers to this coupling to what many call their higher power, higher self, universal source, etc. Itís what physicist David Bohm called the implicate order and undivided wholeness.
Researchers are now theorizing that the energetic heart functions as a ďreceiving stationĒ through which non-linear information couples to the physical heart. By intentionally engaging sincere heart feelings like love, care, appreciation or compassion, we generate a coherent or sine-wave like heart rhythm pattern. The more coherent we are, the more receptive we become to this field of intuitive heart intelligence.
Studies conducted at Institute of HeartMath and elsewhere seem to support the theory that the energetic heart communicates a steady stream of intuitive information to the physical heart, then to the brain / mind (Electrophysiology of Intuition). In most cases, we access only a small percentage of this information, because the mind tends to override the frequency.
Whatís exciting is that human beings can learn to intentionally generate heart rhythm coherence to align with and become more conscious of this heart intelligence. Heart intuition is a bridge line that provides the transfer of wisdom and knowledge from this information field into our perception. The practice of consciously living from the heart increases intuitive access, and as we listen to our heart intuition, our discernment increases and we make better choices and life decisions. In todayís times, more and more people are experiencing an intuitive nudge to ďget on the moveĒ to become the best that they can be. Sometimes our heartís intuition whispers directions, other times it firmly suggests that it is time to move from stuck places and patterns.
As Sara discussed in last weekís article, heart coherence also creates a coherent alignment between heart, mind and emotions that makes it easier to manage our emotions. Anytime we can neutralize emotional reactions and opinions, it helps activate the flow of our heartís intuition for suggesting balanced perceptions and effective choices when discerning solutions or life directions. It is often the lack of coherent alignment between the heartís intuition, mind, and emotions that generates resistance and stress. When our heart connection fades we lose access to intuitive guidance and the mind and emotions often become chaotic, resulting in feelings of overload, irritability, impatience, and so on. Most of us are aware of how being stuck in these stress loops increases our tendency to say or do things we later regret and the resulting time and energy waste that we often self-create. At times we do get an intuitive insight of what to say or do that would prevent stress, but sometimes that intuition is not what we want to hear, because our mind is made up about what we want.
