The Intelligence of the Heart
According to many years of research done by the Heartmath Institute in California, the heart has an electromagnetic field or ‘energetic aura’, which can be read and felt by other people’s hearts and brains? This energy that the heart emits is always pulsating and affecting its environment and can help reduce stress and increase cognitive functions and intuitive discernment when it is coherent. The Heartmath Institute suggests that this energy is our heart’s intuitive intelligence and when we listen to it rather than our ego, we have a beneficial impact on our environment. We increase this energy when we hold genuine emotions of compassion and appreciation. This research supports the age-old symbolic use of the heart being the seat of our love and intuitive intelligence.
