The heart has been studied for over 40 years by the HeartMath Institute and their discoveries have been groud breaking to science and spirituality. What has been revealed is that the heart sends more signals to the brain than the brain sends to the heart. Most importanlty these heart signals have a significant effect on brain function, specifically influencing emotional processing, attention, perception, memory and problem solving. So not only does the heart respond to the brain but the brain responds to the heart.
When you are in a state of stress or negative emotions the heart rhythm patterns are erratic and disordered, which directly effects the brains ability to perform higher cognitive functions. This limits our ability to think clearly, remember, learn, reason and make effective decisions.
In contrast, the more stable pattern of input from the heart to the brain during positive emotional states has the opposite effect, reinforcing positive feelings and emotional stability. Generating increased heart rhythm coherence, by sustaining positive emotions, benefits not only the entire body but also how we perceive, think, feel and perform.
Using the power of an elevated emotion through your heart balances your thoughts and emotions so you can achieve more energy, mental clarity and emotional stability anytime and anywhere. It has been proven that just 15 minutes a day of heart coherence will reset your system after six weeks.
The tecnique to achieve heart coherence is through focusing inward in a meditative state, with eyes closed roll them slightly up looking at the brow, begin to focus on the space right behind your sternum (your heart center), and begin to feel an elevated emotion of gratitude for someone in your life. FEEL this gratitude growing and expanding as you appreciate the person you are thinking of. This simple act connects your heart and brain, elevating your state of being and allowing you to express yourself through heart centered words and actions.
There are many resources out there with heart coherence information and meditations. Some of my favorites are:
