Did you know that there is a whole science behind the heart/mind connection? Did you know that the heart has a larger electromagnetic field than the brain? That certain types of music affects the heart? I find all of these facts fascinating, and also important.
The human being begins as a heart, not a brain. Think about that. What is the first thing you see when you get that first sonogram picture? A little flickering heart! The body grows out of the heart.
We have bioelectromagnetic interactions between and within people, and our physiological systems are interacting in subtle ways. The electromagnetic signal produced by your heart can be measured in the brain waves of people around you.
We have been living in a state where everything we deem important comes from our brains. This has had devastating effects on our planet, people, other sentient beings. We've been told in all religions that love is the answer, yet most of us have no idea what that means. Our first instinct is for ourselves, protecting our ego, which is mind-based. And, I believe that's how it was meant to be - that by living in a dualistic world we have been able to learn the lessons we were meant to learn. Living from the brain/ego has allowed us to make all the mistakes we were meant to make.
But things are changing rapidly. For those of you who are reading this and resonating with what I am saying, let me say that I believe finding a way to live from the heart is our most important challenge. So if you've noticed me away from this space, or not commenting on yours, it's because this has become my focus for now.
