Generations of humans have celebrated and revered the heart as the source of love, healing, and emotion.

The ancient Egyptians believed that the heart, rather than the brain, was the source of human wisdom, emotions, memory, and the soul itself. Concepts of illness were related to the heart, and it was believed that the divine spoke and created life through the heart. 

The Sanskrit word for Heart, Hridayam (hrit + ayam), means "this is the center.”  In Yogic traditions, balance and bodily equilibrium is attributed to the heart, and the heart  is considered to be the internal guide (inner guru). The Nadis (channels) that carry Prana (life force energy) emanate from the Atma dwelling in the heart. The classical Ayurvedic Text, the Charaka Samhita, details the heart's physiology and energetic qualities, and the heart is referred to as "the seat of consciousness".

“In ancient Judaic tradition, The Kabbalah reveres the heart center, one of the Sefirot (channels of life-force) as the Central Sphere and the access point to truth, beauty, joy & health.

The ancient Islamic mystic path of Sufism (Tasawwuf) focuses on awakening the heart, the source of divine wisdom. To this day, many of us are still inspired by Sufi Poet & mysic Rumi's profound heart-centered writings.

In the Hebrew Bible & Christian Old Testament, the book of Proverbs refers to the heart as a source of wisdom, creation and access to the divine source as well: "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he" (Proverbs 23:7); "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it." (Proverbs 4:23); "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones." (Proverbs 17:22)

In Traditional Chinese Medicine,  The heart is considered to be the seat of connection between the mind and body, as well as the house of the spirit (Shen). TCM practitioners measure the quality and nature of the pulse to glean insight into the emotional, energetic and physiological state of their patients.

We all feel a connection to and through our hearts, and we deeply know that the heart's wisdom has been underestimated.

More research & attention is being paid to the heart each day as we collectively attune to this awareness.

Research out of the Institute of HeartMath has affirmed that the heart emits an electromagnetic frequency that is 5,000 times stronger that that of the brain.
Humans not only connect to & communicate with the external world through the heart, but more complex communication & connection involving the heart also resides within each of our bodies.
 Most of us know the heart just simply as a pump, circulating blood throughout the body. We used to think that the heart primarily followed commands from the brain, but further research has shown that the heart actually sends more signals to the brain than the brain sends to the heart.
      Heart Rate Variability (HRV), the measured beat-to-beat difference in the heart's rhythm, is a marker of our body's health & physiological resilience. HRV is determined by many factors, including breathing pattern, exercise, and our current emotional state.
      The human heart rate is variable by nature, determined by the state of balance between both arms of the autonomic nervous system, the Sympathetic (Fight, Flight or Freeze) and the Parasympathetic (Rest, Relaxation, Healing & Repair). 
      When we experience heavy emotions such as anger, frustration, or sadness, our HRV pattern becomes irregular. When we experience expansive emotions of joy, gratitude, and love, our HRV pattern becomes regular. This is the state of coherence.
      In the coherent state, autonomic balance shifts toward Parasympathetic predominance (Rest, Relaxation, Healing & Repair) and synchronization between heart and brain activity. This has a significant effect on brain function, influencing emotional processing and higher cognitive functions such as memory, perception, attention and problem-solving capacity. In the Coherent state, physiological entrainment also occurs, meaning that the body's natural rhythms, (e.g. respiration, blood pressure, etc.) synchronize with the heart's rhythm.
We've been conditioned to believe that we don't have the ability to shift our emotional state, that we don't have the ability to access clear intuition or creativity at will. We buy into the notion that inspiration strikes only rarely and transiently.
We pressure ourselves into thinking we need to motivate ourselves into action. We buy into the idea that creative block is something that artists & creative humans just have to deal with.
We know that we aren't defined by our emotions, but we still feel at the mercy of the emotional roller coaster within us (and within those around us). Certain emotions move through us quickly, while others stop us dead in our tracks, weigh heavily, linger, and derail us from our source.
The truth is that we can access the state of coherence at all times.
In fact, we already know this state. 

Every breakdown-to-breakthrough moment, each stroke of genius, every time we honor that hunch, we're in the state of coherence.

These seemingly rare & brief moments of clarity, inspiration & insight do not need to be rare nor brief.
We have the ability to shift our emotional experience in a non-repressive, dynamic and expansive way, creating a shift to harmony in the brain and body.
Coherence is a state of optimal function, clarity, high performance, intuitive awareness & deep creativity. 
Coherence is our natural state.
Let's access it fully.

“There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled. 
You feel it, don’t you?”
― Rumi
