Heart of the Matter (or, Why Social Distancing is NOT a Good Idea)

Did you know that the heart’s field plays an important role in both individuals and groups health?

“Guard your heart with all diligence, for from it flow springs of life” Proverbs 4:23

Once upon a time, scientists believed the heart is just a muscle whose job is to pump blood 100,000 times a day to all the organs of the body. They told us that the heart is just a vital (but fairly simple) bag of fleshy fibers.

Nowadays, researchers are learning that this marvelous organ, the size of a fist and weighing on average less than 10 ounces, also possess a level of intelligence they are only beginning to understand. 

In the womb, the first organ to form before all else is the heart. It is the organizing factor for physical formation, including for brain formation. 

New research is showing that the heart controls the brain much more than previously thought. There is more information sent from the heart to the brain on a daily basis than vice versa. 

Indeed, the nervous system within the heart (or “heart brain”) enables it to learn, remember, and make functional decisions independent of the brain’s cerebral cortex.

The Heart’s electromagnetic frequency arcs out from the Heart and back in the form of a torus field (see picture above). The axis of this Heart torus extends from the pelvic floor to the top of the skull, and the whole field is holographic, meaning that information about it can be read from each and every point in the torus.

Research by the HeartMath Institute in California has shown that the heart is the most powerful generator of electromagnetic energy in the human body:

  • The heart’s electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity generated by the brain.
  • The magnetic field produced by the heart is more than 5,000 times greater in strength than the field generated by the brain
  • The electromagnetic energy of the heart not only envelops every cell of the human body, but also extends out in all directions in the space around us
  • One person’s heart signal can effect another’s brainwaves, and heart-brain synchronization can occur between two people when they interact
  • The heart’s field is an important carrier of information

Experiments conducted at the Institute of HeartMath have found that the heart’s electromagnetic field can transmit information between people. They have been able to measure an exchange of heart energy between individuals up to 5’ apart. They have also found that one person’s brain waves can actually synchronize to another person’s heart.

The results of these experiments have led them to infer that the nervous system acts as an “antenna,” which is tuned to and responds to the electromagnetic fields produced by the hearts of other individuals.

In other words, energetic communication via the heart field facilitates development of an expanded consciousness in relation to our social world.

In my experience working with groups, the combined impact of the interaction of the electromagnetic fields of all the group members’ hearts creates a powerful space in which individuals can do deeper healing work than one-on-one. As one group member goes deeper, and gets closer to their core, the others in the group feel the energetic vibration of this person’s “heart opening” and are touched by it–energetically, as well as emotionally. That’s why group dynamics is so crucial for healing.

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.


Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.


Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
