For ages, the heart has been believed to be the seat of emotions. However, recent scientific discoveries have shown that the heart is much more than that. The heart is actually a highly intelligent organ with its own consciousness. With its 40,000 neurons, it can process information on its own, make decisions independently, and even demonstrate learning and memory.
This new field of study, called neurocardiology, is showing that the heart communicates with the brain and the rest of the body through its own nervous system. The heart also produces hormones and other chemicals that affect our moods, thoughts, and emotions. What’s more, it also seems capable of generating magnetic fields many times stronger than those generated by the brain.
All of this new information has implications for telepathic communication. If the heart is truly conscious and intelligent and generates larger, stronger magnetic fields, then it stands to reason that it can communicate telepathically with other hearts. This magnetic resonance and local consciousness of the heart could be the missing mechanisms, along with cryptochromes, cellular magnetic induction, and mirror neurons, in the mediation of telepathic communication through electromagnetic signals.
Recent research has shown that the heart’s rhythmic electromagnetic field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the brain and is absorbed by 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”
Curiously, the electromagnetic field of the heart has been found to be greatly amplified in a state known as “heart coherence”, and it’s thought to be key to communication on a deeper level. When our hearts are in a state of coherence, we’re able to connect with others—both human and animal—in a way that goes beyond the exchange of information. We’re able to connect on a heart-to-heart level.
Heart coherence is a natural and reflex-like phenomenon where heart rate changes in sync with the breath. This occurs when the body is allowed to do it and not obstructed by excessive thought and stimulus. It is a state of flow—being present and focused.
When animals are not under threat or asleep, they are almost always in a state of heart coherence. Humans, however, and also some traumatized animals, carry this stress with us constantly, and a state of coherence becomes harder and harder to achieve. The reason for this is that destructive emotions such as anxiety, anger, and frustration can block the rhythm. The effect is maximal at a particular rate of breathing, somewhere around 6 breaths per minute; this seems to be a kind of physiological “resonance point”.
At this resonance point, the heart and breath are aligned in frequency such that their resulting waves amplify each other. As a consequence, the magnetic field generated by the heart is amplified by a large factor.
Heart coherence has been linked to better health outcomes. In one study, heart coherence was found to be a strong predictor of mortality, even after controlling for other risk factors such as age, smoking, and high blood pressure. Other research has shown that heart coherence is associated with increased resistance to disease, improved psychological well-being, and enhanced cognitive function.
