August 2021/Getting Into The Heart

August 21, 2021

Dear Raising the Vibe Members and Friends,

We have all grown up with phrases such as, "put your heart into it", "she has a heart of gold", and "a change of heart". So we have always known at some level that the heart is more than an organ that pumps blood.  In fact, according to

"The heart is a highly complex information-processing center with its own functional brain, commonly called the heart brain, that communicates with and influences the cranial brain via the nervous system, hormonal system and other pathways. These influences affect brain function and most of the body’s major organs and play an important role in mental and emotional experience and the quality of our lives."

The Heartmath® Institute has also discovered that the electrophysiology of intuition and the degree to which the heart’s magnetic field, which radiates outside the body, carries information, affects other people and even our pets. It also links people together in surprising ways.

Science is now proving that a healthier, more successful life can be obtained by tapping into your heart and radiating out love. The more you practice getting centered in your heart with loving attitudes the more your body will start chemical changes that promote peace and cell regeneration vs. the fight or flight response.

By intentionally opening our heart and then connecting to our logical brain, we can become truly wise and not just knowledgeable. It is the healthy balance between the masculine and feminine, right and left brain, logic and intuition that keeps us thriving.
