“We used two Holter (electrocardiogram) recorders, one fitted on Mabel and the other on Josh,” Rollin wrote in his paper, The Energetic Heart: Bioelectromagnetic Interactions Within and Between People. “We synchronized the recorders and placed Mabel in one of our labs. Josh then entered the room where Mabel was waiting, sat down and proceeded to consciously feel feelings of love towards Mabel.”
You can see what happened in the graph below.
As Josh sent feelings of love and care towards his pet, Josh’s heart rhythms became more ordered and coherent, and this change appears to have influenced Mabel’s heart rhythms, which then also became more coherent and in sync with Josh’s heart rhythms.
If you’ve ever wondered what goes on in your dog’s mind, or heart, when you leave home, this may help: When Josh left the room, Mabel’s heart rhythms became much more chaotic and incoherent, suggesting initial separation anxiety, as you can see in the graph.
