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.
Mysteries of the Human Heart
“The human heart has hidden treasures, in secret kept, in silence sealed.” — Charlotte Brontë
The human heart, the size of two adult fists, is mysterious, intelligent, powerful, and sometimes inexplicable. The Egyptians believed that Anubis, the god of the underworld and judge of the dead, weighed the hearts of the recently deceased against a feather — if the two balanced, the heart would be returned to owner. If the heart was heavier, it was weighted by bad deeds and fed to a monster.
Heart as Ruler of the Brain
Aristotle considered the heart as the center of reason, thought, and emotion, senior to the brain in importance. Ninth century Arabic philosopher Abu Nasr al-Farabi believed that, “The ruling organ in the human body is the heart; the brain is a secondary ruling organ subordinated to the heart.” Auguste Comte, a 19th century French philosopher declared that the brain should be servant to the heart.
“The most common denominator in all religions is that the heart is the seat of wisdom,” said Rollin McCraty Ph.d, director of research at the groundbreaking HeartMath Institute in Santa Cruz, CA. Twelfth century Christian mystic, Hildegard of Bingen, would agree. She wrote, “The soul sits at the center of the heart, as though in a house.”
