Thinking good thoughts helps your heart

It is time we thought of the heart as much more than just another organ; more than a pump that moves blood through your body.

In the past, people have considered the brain as being in charge of the body, science is now learning about the energy of the heart. The heart is really the center of your consciousness. Of course many spiritual traditions have said that for thousands of years. If someone were to say, "Point to yourself?" would you point to your brain or your big toe? No we point to the center of us, our heart. Your heart is actually the center of tremendous force of intelligence, which speaks through a vibrational language to every cell of your body. The heart is autogenic; it does not require a signal from the brain to heat.

Look at the heart biologically is an amazing phenomenon. It can beat on its own without any connection to the brain, and beat an hundred thousand times per day and about 40 million times per year. It starts to form in the fetus before there is a brain. Scientists don't know exactly what triggers the self-indicted heartbeat.

By bringing the heart and brain together as partners we can enhance our immune system, create a sense of well-being, reduce effects of stress, speed up recovery time and generate a sense of compassion. If your hold a thought or emotion for 12 seconds, your heart begins to beat at that rhythm. Anytime you focus on a compassionate, loving thought, you boost your immune system. Change your heart rhythms and begin creating a cascade of changes throughout the body.

Take a moment to close your eyes and remember a wonderful time from your past. A time when someone did or said something special to you, or a time when you did or said something for someone else. Now in your mind, relive that joy. See it, feel it, hear it being said, own it.
