The Heart Has Its Own “Brain” and Consciousness
The heart is with certainty the most important part of our physical body. There always is a big discussion what is more important, the brain or the body? This question has it roots- which function is more important, the heart’s or the brains’s?
In this article, we want to discuss about one interesting phenomenon that’s ought to be proved. What if both the body and the brain have the same functions in a strong bond/connection between them? It seems that that is the truth.
The heart, as an organ, has the vital function in our bodies, but there is something way above the physical in each human. Three different studies, done by different teams of scientists proved something really extraordinary. But when a new research connected these 3 discoveries, something shocking was realized, something hiding in plain sight. Human emotion literally shapes the world around us. Not just our perception of the world, but reality itself.
You thought that the brain is the center of emotion? Well, you have been wrong. Research in the new discipline of neurocardiology shows that the heart is a sensory organ and a sophisticated center for receiving and processing information. The nervous system within the heart (or “heart brain”) enables it to learn, remember, and make functional decisions independent of the brain’s cerebral cortex. Moreover, numerous experiments have demonstrated that the signals the heart continuously sends to the brain influence the function of higher brain centers involved in perception, cognition, and emotional processing.
In addition to the extensive neural communication network linking the heart with the brain and body, the heart also communicates information to the brain and throughout the body via electromagnetic field interactions. The heart generates the body’s most powerful and most extensive rhythmic electromagnetic field. Compared to the electromagnetic field produced by the brain, the electrical component of the heart’s field is about 60 times greater in amplitude, and permeates every cell in the body. The magnetic component is approximately 5000 times stronger than the brain’s magnetic field and can be detected several feet away from the body with sensitive magnetometers.
This strong energy flow is also visible from its external factors. The connection between two souls confirms this theory. When two people fall in love, or passion is ‘ignited’ between them, their hearts establish the ‘heart connection’ and use it to exchange information in the form of emotion.
This new thesis also confirms that our social connections and interactions are conditioned by our hearts and the strong connection between the conscious and subconscious.Moreover in a longitudinal study of 46 social groups, one of us (RTB) documented how information about the global organization of a group—the group’s collective consciousness—appears to be transmitted to all members by an energetic field of socio-emotional connection. Data on the relationships between each pair of members was found to provide an accurate image of the social structure of the group as a whole. Coherent organization of the group’s social structure is associated with a network of positively charged emotions (love, excitement, and optimism) connecting all members.
However, all of these theories open another interesting question: is our heart the ‘home’ of our subconsciousness? Probably the source of our emotions and energy fields, or at least the strongest, are located in the area around our hearts and inside them. One of the strongest chakras is located there, which makes this theory very acceptable.
