When sharing with others that I co-created a website called The Heart’s Path I’m often asked how the name came about. Instead of giving a “new agey” kind of explanation with a lot of “Peace..Love..Doves…” I thought I’d give a more 3d, scientific based answer to support that thinking/acting from our Hearts is the true path.
Conventional scientific data shows us the average adult heart beats over 100,000 time as day. Doing so, it circulates approx. 2,000 gallons of blood throughout 60,000 miles of veins, arteries and other blood vessels. In recent years, science has shown that pumping blood may not be our heart’s main purpose. While mainstream science has always regarded the brain as being the master, throughout the ages ancient traditions regarded the heart as the true master organ of emotion, thought, personality, and then some.
In the early 1990’s a scientific discovery was reported and published in the journal NEUROCARDIOLOGY. While studying the relationship between the heart and brain scientists discovered about 40,000 sensory neurites (specialized neurons) that formed a communication network within the heart itself. These 40,000 neurites are in addition to the neurons that exist in the brain, along the spinal cord, as well as other smaller organs. This illustrates the profound communication that exists within the human body. The scientists came to regard the heart as the ‘little brain’.
As mentioned before, the relationship of the heart within the human has been described in the scrolls and scriptures of some of the most ancient spiritual traditions. The role of the heart is realized to have heart-based wisdom known as heart-intelligence, intentional self-healing, access to super learning abilities, precognitive abilities, independent communication with other organs, and more.
They discovered the heart’s little brain can work in harmony with the cranial brain AND can work independently of the cranial brain to learn, think, recall, and even sense our inner and outer worlds on its own! This entirely makes sense as an energy worker because I’ve experienced how our cranial brain (ego/logic) can’t comprehend anything outside of its own realm. Where as the Heart (love) has no limits and has no problem accepting anything the way it is because it comes from no judgement and acknowledges the divinity and beauty in all things/experiences. Again, our cranial’s brain has limits. The Heart’s brain is limitless.
The game changer is the resonance of energy between the two. The cranial’s brain would love to keep us in its world of struggles and confusion and ‘superiority’. All low vibratory resonances and yet, no comparison to the Heart’s brain functions coming from the higher vibratory resonances of unconditional Love and Grace.
I find that these scientific discoveries definitely support the saying, “Coming from the heart…..”. When making choices in life listening to our intuition (feeling with our Heart) can bypass all of the mumbo jumbo brain noise in the head and can be considerably more accurate. So when it’s time to react in any given situation, instead of going on auto-pilot from logic, taking a pause, and thinking about how I would react if I came from the loving space of my Heart is proving to be more effective along my spiritual journey. At first it takes practice to retrain myself from taking knee jerk reactions/thoughts from my cranial’s brain. But slowly and surely I’m getting the hang of it and the rewards from asking my Heart what to do are limitless, and thus, taking me along “The Heart’s Path”..Peace you Beautiful Souls.
