It’s an interesting thing, the heart.

It remembers.

Transplant patients, given new life after surgery, often report having acquired some of the preferences of the donor, especially when it comes to favorite foods.
Strange but true.

Our hearts hold the agreements we’ve made with ourselves, in relationships with others and to the world.

The heart knows.

When I hear that someone has died of a disease of the heart, which is not surprisingly the number one disease that ends a woman’s life, I often wonder what agreements were broken or which ones were held too long?

Yes, diet and exercise are the physical part of it, but as a woman the unspoken agreements we make to be nice, get it perfect, get along, follow the rules, not be too aggressive, too needy, too opinionated, too much. Whatever they are, those agreements, those unspoken and invisible agreements,
the prickly pins of criticism that release life blood every time we try and stifle them, put an unnecessary strain where love and joy could be.

If you’ve made up your mind to ignore your heart, then you need to know that communication between the heart and brain is a dynamic, ongoing, two-way dialogue. Each organ continuously influences the other’s function. In other words, your brain is not the boss of you.

According to the Institute of Heart Math, the heart’s magnetic field, which is the strongest rhythmic field produced by the human body, not only envelops every cell of the body, but also extends out in all directions into the space around us. That field can be measured several feet away from the body by sensitive magnetometers. In other words, the heart’s field is an important carrier of information.

The heart speaks for us even when we’re silent.

What is yours saying?
