HeartMath Study Shows Human Hearts Connect Through Earth’s Magnetic Field

The human heart has always been seen as a seat of consciousness and connection. Now, a groundbreaking new study has definitively shown that our hearts are in communication with one and other, through our connection with the Earth’s magnetic field.

The HeartMath Institute is a world-renowned research organization whose goal is to help people to reconnect to their hearts. At the core of their work is the understanding that emotions affect the physiological activity in our bodies and by self-regulating we can be the drivers of that activity. When we can get the heart to work together with the brain, we can enter into a state of coherence or alignment that dramatically benefits our mental and physical health.

Dr. Rollin McCraty is the Director of Research at the HeartMath Institute and has been spearheading the investigation into the different kinds of coherence states.

The Electromagnetic Nature Of Emotions

When we allow ourselves to feel our emotions, it’s as though hidden forces, even tidal waves, move within us. As we process them, vast amounts of space within our minds and hearts emerge. We feel lighter and more resolved. Our emotions help us evolve and teach us how to expand, yet our understanding of them is limited. 

Electromagnetism is the study of electromagnetic force, which is born from interactions that occur between electrically charged particles. Particles attract, matter is formed, and energy is emitted. 

Electromagnetic fields transport these forces, giving birth to electromagnetic radiation, such as light. As atoms attract via electromagnetism, they create our physical realities. We cannot exist without electromagnetism.

Lightning is the result of electrostatic discharge. Emotions are similar. When we have experiences, we immediately absorb them, and then our personalities form responses. Meanwhile, without any apparent effort, our minds and hearts funnel our experiences through our unique webs of perceptions and beliefs. At the end of this speed tunnel, and without much effort, our emotions are born.
