The results of “The Electricity of Touch” experiment were positive. The data showed “when people touch or are in proximity, a transfer of the electromagnetic energy produced by the heart occurs.” This is why I find this subject so fascinating.
The study’s authors observed that although additional research should be conducted, there are potential important implications raised by this research when viewed in conjunction with the success of numerous healing modalities.
Practices such as therapeutic touch, holoenergetic healing, healing touch, qigong and reiki, among others, “are based upon the assumption that an exchange of energy occurs to facilitate healing,” according to the findings. “While there exists scientific evidence to substantiate the physiological and psychological effects of many of these treatments, science has as yet not been able to describe a mechanism by which this putative energy exchange between individuals takes place. This study, together with the work of other research …represents one of the first successful attempts to directly measure an exchange of energy between people.”
The Heart and Emotions
The heart’s electromagnetic field contains information or coding — which researchers are trying to understand — that is transmitted throughout and outside of the body. One of the most significant findings of IHM’s research related to this field is that intentionally generated positive emotions can change this information or coding in a way that benefits the entire body.
That discovery raises the question whether the cardio-electromagnetic field information transmitted from an individual who is angry, fearful, depressed or experiencing some other negative emotion, is changed when it is influenced by positive emotions. Also, is the care, compassion, love or other positive emotion transmitted throughout an individual’s body as the cardio-electromagnetic field radiates through it also transferred externally as well to people in close proximity or, perhaps, even over long distances?
