Important information to check

Quite energetically "sparky" out there this year isn't it? So, what's new – maybe not new - actually a bit more than that, eh? 

The old chestnuts seem to be coming back and:

·       night sweats

·       palpitations

·       lethargy

·       body pains

·       anger

·       depression 

are all fairly high on the list.

We are none of us immune are we? It is at times like this that I am reminded of the late Vicky Wall's advice (creator of Aura-Soma), “keep trimming your wicks!" - which seems to say it all.

In no particular order, here are a few suggestions to dowse over and clear:

An article on the magnetic field of the heart versus the magnetic field of the brain and the effect this can have on society.

The longest and most difficult journey many of us within the west have to make is moving from the head to the heart. We put a lot of emphasis on being logical, scientific and following through thoughts and solutions within our brains. Our brains with their knowledge and information are highly prized and rewarded within our society. The rewards can be financial, awards such as the Nobel prizes,  status symbols such as large houses in certain areas or cars, or having a position of authority within an organisation or society such as politicians.

While thought is very important it needs to be considered in relation to our soul and our hearts. We are born as a whole package not as a being composed of different fragmented segments. As the song goes the ‘hip bone is connected to the thigh bone’ etc and the same can be said of us from the metaphysical as well as physical perspective. We are spiritual beings within physical bodies and both the brain and the heart within this context have measurable magnetic fields that radiate out from them. The more one consciously uses or comes from the brain or heart the stronger the magnetic field. Also the more a person comes from both but centers themselves from the heart the more they are aligned with their true nature and soul purpose. It is easier for them to express their authentic self. 

A small example I often give is that one time when a friend offered me her lovely, long haired, luxurious white carpet due to her redecorating and I gratefully accepted her offer. At the time money was tight and my carpet threadbare. I found however that everything involved such as getting a van of the right size was incredibly difficult. I decided to move from considering the difficulties from the head to the heart and when I did I saw her white fluffy pussycat walking across the carpet. As an asthmatic I would have been allergic to the carpet. A simple example that demonstrates how the heart can also give solutions that the head overlooks.

There have been numerous studies done on the effect of coming from the heart and the impact this can have on society. Some of these have been studies into the effect of people meditating in areas at the same time on a regular basis and the effect it has had on crime levels with these areas. Crime drops in relation to the number of people in an area versus the number of people meditating and focusing on peace.

A famous study took place in Washington DC, over four months during the summer of 1993 by John Hagelin which involved a number of people including a sceptical police department to record statistics. Within this study up to 4,000 people practised transcendental meditation on a daily basis. When the number reached 2,500 people there was a significant drop in violent crime recorded i.e rape, murder etc. The researchers thought there would be a 20% reduction based on previous figures from studies but the result was actually 23%. Washington DC had a population of approximately 1.5 million people at the time so the reality was very few people had a significant impact within their community through meditation. There consciousness, especially the electromagnetic field of their hearts radiated out having a calming, relaxing effect within their environment which improved the coherence of those living in Washington DC. Many were new to the practice and their focus was on themselves.

This study was replicated by John Hagelin in the Israel-Lebanon war of the 1980’s. On days where the numbers of people meditating were largest there was a big drop in the level of conflict and violence – up to 80%. This surprised many people as there were only 600 – 800 known people meditating within the experiment, within a highly charged, stressed, fearful population.

Many other studies including within this war took place and they all came up with similar statistics. Measurements of levels of cortisol which rise through stress dropped, increased serotonin levels were recorded and other biochemical and nuero-physiological changes occurred within people who lived near those meditating. It was as if they were also meditating though they were not. More than 60 peer reviewed research experiments have taken place where people have meditated in areas of conflict resulting every time in a reduction in violence and conflict. (1) The implications of this with the goal of world peace are massive and need to be taken seriously within our society.

Traditionally it was considered that it was the brain that communicated information to the heart but recent research now demonstrates that the heart has its own sophisticated brain that allows it to remember, store and process information independently from the brain. This research implies that consciousness occurs from the body, heart and brain acting together and not separately.  Experiments also show that the hearts brain influences the brain’s higher functions like perception, reasoning, intuition and emotional processing. 

The electromagnetic field of the heart is about ‘60 times greater in amplitude than the brain, and permeates 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.’ (2)

HeartMath Institute has done a number of studies on how the hearts electromagnetic field of one person can affect the field of others around them. It appears as individuals move towards psycho-physiological coherence they are more affected by the electromagnetic fields of others around them.  As people learn to sustain heartfelt positive feelings like love, gratitude, happiness they start to affect the social fields and coherence of individuals and groups where they are. These positive feelings also assist ‘the brain to be bought into entrainment with the heart.’ (2) This means the rhythm of the brain and heart are synchronised. This improves the health and wellbeing of the individual or group in which they are involved. It is also one of the reasons why circles are such a powerful vehicle for evolving intuitive and psychic gifts you may have as well as making you more aware so your life becomes easier and you can become more in rhythm with it.

The implications of the research discussed briefly here are massive. As we become more heart and love focused we influence our surroundings by raising the coherence of those around us. This has obvious implications in that if we raise our consciousness through coming from the heart we can affect our environments and communities where we work, live and play. Through focusing on coming from the heart we as an individual can create positive changes within our lives and the lives of those we interact with or are in the vicinity of. It is through us striving for intentional coherence of the heart and brain that the planetary shift we desire can occur. It is understanding with our whole being that we are love and the blueprint of endless possibilities is within us to bring out so we can consciously assist with this planetary shift and unity consciousness or awareness.
