We all feel so good after having a heart to heart conversation with someone, and science may be close to uncovering why these little talks are not only great for our mood but may also be critical for our brain health. Studies conducted at the HeartMatch Institute have shown that our hearts produce and emit an electromagnetic field that can extend out and encircle the body up to a couple of feet in distance. Moreover, this research suggests that our hearts may be capable of communicating with the hearts of others, and that they may also have the ability to “talk” to our brains and to the brains of others. The researchers suggest that this “heart brain-synchronization,” as they call it, can occur when when two people are interacting with one another and responding to each other with sincerity, appreciation and love and, interestingly, that this synchronicity may have positive effects on how well our brain perceives and processes the world around us.
In our opinion, this line of research has some pretty cool implications—namely, that by being a caring, loving, gracious person we may be able to not only have really meaningful relationships with others but that we may be able to perceive the world as a nicer, friendlier place. We will certainly keep up with this interesting area of research and see where it goes.
