“If the 20th Century has been the Century of the Brain … then the 21st Century should be the Century of the Heart.” ~Gary E.R. Schwartz, Ph.D.
One of the most astounding pieces of information I’ve ever received came while attending a lecture by spiritualist/scientist, Gregg Braden. Consequently, every hair on my body stood on its end. Because I connected with it as deep truth. It validated from a scientific perspective what I already knew to be true.
Gregg shared the findings from the HeartMath Institute stating that “the heart, not the brain is the most powerful neural network within the human body.” I learned its electricity is 40-60% stronger than the brain’s. Also, it contains around 40,000 “brain-like cells” that literally communicate with the brain in every nanosecond of the day.
Coherence between our hearts and our brains is the ultimate state of being. As a result, we experience overall emotional, physical, and mental health. “Unfortunately ego choices are overriding our heart’s intelligence,” states HeartMath Institute.
Most of us already know this to be true and have no need for the science of it. Yet, do we really know how powerful our hearts are? Do we really know how powerful we are when heart-centered? Do we really know our impact on the planet by what lies with our individual heart?
The ultimate question may be… What old stories and beliefs are you holding in your heart that are governing your life and affecting the whole?
The Heart’s Intelligence is Powerful
Science has proven what ancient wisdom has known all along. The heart is powerful and holds an intelligence all of its own. Also, it was often referred to as the “master organ” and revered and celebrated by the ancients. “It’s only in more recent history that the pendulum swung the other way in science and medicine in thinking of the heart as an isolated pump,” states Gregg Braden in his book, Resilience from the Heart.
Is now the time for the pendulum to swing back to the center balancing our hearts with our brains? Is now the time for us to access the wisdom our hearts hold?
Surely now is the time to have a state of being which radiates love, joy, peace and harmony in a powerful way for our personal well-being and that of the world’s!
