*** Oh, they won't let me publish this!!!! It says there is an error and can't be published, but it does not say what the error is so we can fix it. We will see. Read it anyway, if I am able to get it up.
Some new information on here such as "the heart is a sensory organ". That changes the dynamics a whole bunch. It means its an information collector and it can then learn, analyze, and come up with answers and functional decisions and then sends them to the rest of the body including the brain. In fact, it says below, the regular brain uses the input from the heart in its functioning. Very very interesting new information. It explains a lot and fills in many gaps. No wonder women are better at intuition than men. LOL Just kidding. Anything to do with the heart is definitely in womens territory.
I used to call it Intuition or a "knowing" because the feeling is like no other that I have experienced, so I always know when its from the heart and not the head. So far, its been right every time. One time I did not listen and I paid a dear price for not listening. Since then I have never NOT Listened. I always listen even if I can't explain it, I do it or don't do it anyway.
It also covers on here the importance of the heart and emotions on the good functioning of the body. Its says that the resulting waves in the heart will match the emotions, discord for negative and harmonious for positive. Ironically I just read a piece on the evil ones who created new age beliefs to manipulate followers into passivity so we would not resist violently since there are so few of them.
They could not withstand the overwhelming results of such actions, so passivity was the goal. Is this part of that? I don't know. I do know that certain emotions can cause disease in the rest of the body, example is "anger" is reflected by cancer in the liver. etc. This is definitely a very educational piece, much of which has been confirmed elsewhere in studies as you will see by our other blogs on the subject. Did you know that psychic attacks can also sit in your body? My chiropractor helped me through just such an attack. What a difference it made. Enjoy the read. No fast food info here.
The Heart Has Its Own “Brain” and Consciousness

Many believe that conscious awareness originates in the brain alone. Recent scientific research suggests that consciousness actually emerges from the brain and body acting together. A growing body of evidence suggests that the heart plays a particularly significant role in this process.
Far more than a simple pump, as was once believed, the heart is now recognized by scientists as a highly complex system with its own functional “brain.”
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.
The heart generates a continuous series of electromagnetic pulses in which the time interval between each beat varies in a dynamic and complex manner. The heart’s ever-present rhythmic field has a powerful influence on processes throughout the body.
We have demonstrated, for example, that brain rhythms naturally synchronize to the heart’s rhythmic activity, and also that during sustained feelings of love or appreciation, the blood pressure and respiratory rhythms, among other oscillatory systems, entrain to the heart’s rhythm.
We propose that the heart’s field acts as a carrier wave for information that provides a global synchronizing signal for the entire body
Specifically, we suggest that as pulsing waves of energy radiate out from the heart, they interact with organs and other structures. The waves encode or record the features and dynamic activity of these structures in patterns of energy waveforms that are distributed throughout the body.
In this way, the encoded information acts to in-form (literally, give shape to) the activity of all bodily functions—to coordinate and synchronize processes in the body as a whole. This perspective requires an energetic concept of information, in which patterns of organization are enfolded into waves of energy of system activity distributed throughout the system as a whole.
Basic research at the Institute of HeartMath shows that information pertaining to a person’s emotional state is also communicated throughout the body via the heart’s electromagnetic field. The rhythmic beating patterns of the heart change significantly as we experience different emotions. Negative emotions, such as anger or frustration, are associated with an erratic, disordered, incoherent pattern in the heart’s rhythms.
In contrast, positive emotions, such as love or appreciation, are associated with a smooth, ordered, coherent pattern in the heart’s rhythmic activity. In turn, these changes in the heart’s beating patterns create corresponding changes in the structure of the electromagnetic field radiated by the heart, measurable by a technique called spectral analysis.
More specifically, we have demonstrated that sustained positive emotions appear to give rise to a distinct mode of functioning, which we call psychophysiological coherence.
During this mode, heart rhythms exhibit a sine wave-like pattern and the heart’s electromagnetic field becomes correspondingly more organized.
At the physiological level, this mode is characterized by increased efficiency and harmony in the activity and interactions of the body’s systems. 
Psychologically, this mode is linked with a notable reduction in internal mental dialogue, reduced perceptions of stress, increased emotional balance, and enhanced mental clarity, intuitive discernment, and cognitive performance.
In sum, our research suggests that psychophysiological coherence is important in enhancing consciousness—both for the body’s sensory awareness of the information required to execute and coordinate physiological function, and also to optimize emotional stability, mental function, and intentional action.
Furthermore, as we see next, there is experimental evidence that psychophysiological coherence may increase our awareness of and sensitivity to others around us. The Institute of HeartMath has created practical technologies and tools that all people can use to increase coherence.
