Our Heart Has An Unique Place In Our Internal TerrainApr 15, 2022
With 100 times the electrical amplitude of the brain and 5000 times the magnetic field of the brain, our heart plays a unique role in our body. Acting more as a quantum sensor than a pump, our heart guides, informs, and educates our biology.
The heart begins sensing, interacting, and learning first.
Touch, or awareness of the physical transfer of energy, is the first sense to develop.
We know this because we can see changes in heart rate related to touch in utero.
It starts that early and it never stops. The need for love and safety is primary and guides our development for a lifetime.
Our heart picks up on the subtle frequencies of the world. The world around us can feed the balance of the heart, just as we can feed the world when our heart is balanced. This is the true terrain theory and it holds us all in one connected ecosystem.
Our heart has a unique place in our internal terrain, linking our nervous system with the world around us. The heart communicates with the brain in four ways.
First, the heart has its own nervous system with 50,000 independent neurons. The heart sends neural signals directly to the brain via the vagus nerve.
Second, the heart communicates with the brain biophysically with pressure waves or pulse waves.
Third, the heart uses biochemical messages in the form of hormones and neurotransmitters to talk to the brain. The heart is an endocrine organ too, secreting hormones all on its own.
Lastly, the heart communicates with the brain via an electromagnetic field.
The heart sends more neural signals to the brain than vice versa and those signals are sent along the vagus nerve. In fact, the heart has its own neural network that learns, remembers, and directs action independent of the brain.
The intrinsic cardiac nervous system’ (ICN) of the intracardiac ganglia and interconnecting neurons. The cardiac ganglia regulate tight control over the cardiac electrophysiology, creating a quantum network to receive and emit signals of safety, danger, and action within our body.
More than a pump, our heart receives information from our ecosystem and then creates a carrier wave of information throughout our body.
This wave of information is created by the vortex of blood flow in the left ventricle, heart sounds, and pulse pressure - this frequency and amplitude information regulates our biology.
A beating heart, with its helical myofiber architecture and twisting-untwisting motion, produces spiraling streams of blood flow that create a powerful electromagnetic frequency of information that emanates in every direction.
Our heart is a gateway, a receiver, and a projector of information, an energetic bridge between ourselves and the world around us.
Our heart is an energetic bridge between us and the world we live in. As the heart contracts in systole, it rotates in torsion with a twisting-untwisting motion due to its helical myofibers as postulated by Aristotle, observed by Da Vinci and measured by 4D magnetic resonance. This torsion triggers vorticity or a vortex motion in the blood flow.
This vortex motion radiates out to our arteries, veins, and capillaries, this vorticity creates the enormous electromagnetic frequency we see radiate out in all directions from the heart. A carrier wave of information that extends to every cell in our body.
This vortexed flow maintains a delicate quantum network with the plasma water that makes up 55% of our blood. Remember that our structured water body is different than regular water. Its lattice structure creates a negative charge while the interface between the structured and bulk water within us creates a positive charge creating a battery to power a flow of protons, electrons, fluid, and information.
All of this is sustained by coherence. Coherence is inextricably linked to our thoughts, perceptions, and the world around us.
Our biology pairs with the biology of this planet. Our quantum nature dictates that
each frequency, each thought, and each electromagnetic field emits a vibration that informs our DNA. Not isolated from but intimately connected to the ecosystem,
true health comes from acknowledging and tending to these connections.
In 2021 nexus glia was discovered in the heart. These unique neurons help regulate the intrinsic cardiac nervous system.
Our heart has its own nervous system that responds to signals of safety or danger from within us or in the environment around us.
Information processed by the intrinsic cardiac nervous system can influence activity in the fronto-cortical areas and motor cortex, affecting psychological factors,
like attention level, motivation, perceptual sensitivity, and emotional processing.
The information shared by the heart with the brain may also be coded by rhythmic and electromagnetic patterns which may represent the basis of intuitive-emotional processes, awareness, and feelings.
Research with heart coherence clearly shows the beneficial impact of emotions like love and gratitude on the intrinsic cardiac nervous system while depleting emotions like fear and anger degrade this communication network.
Our heart has a regulatory effect on our biology based on the information it receives from our internal and external terrain. Tending to both is where true health lies.
The heart communicates with the brain via pressure waves, hormones, neurologically and electromagnetically. The vast majority of vagal neural messages come from the heart. The vagus nerve and heart-brain connection have a regulatory effect on our nervous system and our resilience to trauma/chronic stress and infections.
Heart rate variability is the measure of the naturally occurring beat-to-beat changes in our heart rate and gives us a peek inside the heart-brain connection. Heart rates are not meant to be uniform, there is variability in the beats, and in this variability lies health.
The more variability in your heart rate, the more resilient to stress you are, the lower your cortisol is, the easier you adapt to change, the healthier your physical heart is and the more positive your outlook is. Higher heart rate variability is associated with lower mortality and morbidity as well as a positive mental state.
Heart rate variability comes from the two competing branches of our nervous system simultaneously sending signals to your heart.
Our nervous system is comprised of our parasympathetic and our sympathetic nervous system. Our parasympathetic nervous system governs our rest and digest functions while our sympathetic nervous system governs our stress response like the fight or flight reaction.
If your nervous system is resilient, your heart will be told to beat slower by your parasympathetic system and to beat faster by your sympathetic system causing a fluctuation in your heart rate called heart rate variability.
As often the case with trauma and chronic stress, especially early life trauma,
the nervous system has low heart rate variability and can get stuck in stress and trauma responses that are not balanced by the rest and digest function of the parasympathetic nervous system which leads to autoimmunity, chronic disease, and increased inflammation.
From the measurements of our heart rate variability comes a wave function is known as heart coherence. Our health is inseparable from the world around us, it's time to tend to this.
