Heart intelligence

We usually think of the heart as a physical organ that pumps blood around our body to keep us alive. It certainly plays that vital role, but research from the HeartMath institute has found out that it is much more than that.

The heart has it’s own intelligence and has a magnetic field that is more than 5,000 times greater in strength than the field generated by the brain. This field can be detected a number of feet away from the body and has the capacity not only to affect all the other organs and systems in our own body, but also other people around us.

Their research also shows that “Positive emotions not only feel better subjectively, but tend to increase synchronization of the body’s systems, thereby enhancing energy and enabling us to function with greater efficiency and effectiveness”. In Dru yoga, we use affirmations and visualisations, which help to create those positive feelings and emotions – making us feel better about ourselves, and improving our relationships with others.
