The Power of Your " Heart Brain"

Your heart knows the truth of what is important to you. Your gut knows the essence of what IS you. Your head is to be guided accordingly.


Research is finally backing the long-time belief that conscious awareness originates from the heart. Studies have found that consciousness is an evolution of the brain and heart working together in synergy with their own “brains.” More than the general belief that the heart is merely a pump essential for life, it now appears that the heart is a contributor to conscious awareness, thoughts and decision-making.


Research into neurocardiology finds that that heart is both a sensory organ and a center for receiving and processing information, enabling it to learn, remember and make functional, independent decisions. Furthermore, studies have also found that the heart influences the higher brain centres by sending continuous messages updating the system about perception, cognition and emotional processing.


Through electromagnetic interactions the heart also connects to an extensive neural network linking the heart to the brain and the whole body. These electromagnetic interactions are far stronger than those produced by the brain, up to 60 times greater in amplitude that the brains, in fact! This means that the strong presence of the heart is a strong influence on processes throughout the body such as feelings of love, respiratory rhythms and other oscillatory systems.


The heart has immense power and influence within our bodies, as the research outlined above shows, it cannot be under-estimated when making important decisions.
