Message from the Heat Part Two
It was little over 5 years ago, whilst doing a magazine called Street Talk, that I came across Gregg Bradon’s book Walking between the worlds this promented me to learn about the work of the Heartmath Insititue and consequently do a article on their work and the implications. Meanwhile reading Greggs book, walking between the worlds - the science of compassion. In his introduction this sentence jumped out at me
"Researchers have recently demonstrated to the western world a phenomenon that has been taught through the mystery schools for thousands of years. New data now supports the idea that human emotion determines the actual patterning of DNA within the body. Furthermore, laboratory demonstrations have shown that DNA determines how patterns of light, expressed as matter surround the human body”. Imagine, he asks us…the implications ?"
Gregg expands….”Stated another way, researchers have discovered that the arrangements of matter (atoms, bacteria, viruses, climate, even other people) surrounding your body is directly linked to the feeling and emotion from within your body.”
Here are some Quotes and passages from his book, Walking Between The Worlds, that I include to lay the foundation for message from the heart
“You are not your success, your failures, your careers or your poverty. You are not your joy, ecstasy, fear or pain. These are the elements of your experiences that allow you the opportunity to know yourself in all ways, so that those ways may be mastered. You are in this world and not of this world.”
“I sense that this time in our lives represents a crossroads in conscious memory. We are being asked by virtue of our very experience to choose between one of two paths. Each path is valid in its own right neither necessarily right nor wrong. Each path is complete with its unique choices and consequences, each leading to the same destination within different time frames. The FIRST PATH; may be viewed as the dominant paradigm that has been, a path of external technology engineered outside of our bodies as extensions of ourselves interacting with the world around us. This path represents our cultural response to the challenges of life. Causes of life events are found ‘out there’ in a world that is perceived as separate and distinct from our bodies. Therefore solutions are engineered ‘out there’, discounting the interplay between us and our world. Illness, disease, deficiencies and conditions are viewed as originating and cured through things that ‘we do’ . Examples are vaccines, dietary supplements, antibiotics and gadgets that make ‘out there’ better. Clearly these are powerful and beneficial technologies. I bless these technologies and give thanks for their offering, for this has been our path”.
“External technology is us, remembering through our machines, the same principles that we demonstrate as life in our bodies. These principals include capacitance, resistance, transmission, receiving and storage of scalar and vector quantities of energy. External technology is us remembering ourselves by building models of ourselves outside of ourselves and applying the models back to ourselves”.
“The first path has brought you and me to the point where we are today, keeping us alive and strong, prolonging our opportunity to choose another way. The scientific method has been the way that we have chosen to demonstrate these ‘truths’ to ourselves”.
“THE SECOND PATH; is the path of internal technology. Remembered, rather than engineered, internal technology is expressed within you and me simply through the way we live life. This path remembers the human body as the sacred union between the atomic expression of ‘mother earth’ and the electrical and magnetic expression of ‘father heaven’. The ancient Essence sciences emphasize this idea as the basis of their earliest teachings
“For the spirit of the Son of Man was created from the spirit of the Heavenly Father, and his body from the body of the Earthly Mother”( from the essence gospel of peace)
“The path of internal technology remembers that each cell of our bodies is approximately 1.17 volts of electrical potential. Statistics indicate that the average body is composed of approximately 1 quadrillion cells. One quadrillion volts of bio electrical potential per person. Look at the potential that you live as your body ! do you know, do you remember what you may do with your potential ?”
“Is it possible that viruses, bacteria, immune breakdowns, social and political upheaval and other conditions viewed as ‘horrors’ are actually powerful agents of change ? Is it possible that these experiences are catalysts that you and I have consented to in an effort to propel us collectively into a higher choice of being ?”
“I have often heard individuals respond to this question by answering that they do not know what to ‘do’. The ancients say to us that compassion is not something that is done or accomplished. Rather, compassion is that which you allow yourself to become. Doing is a hallmark of the paradigm that has been. You have grown beyond the doing. This unique time in earth, as well as human history, is the time of becoming. Put simply to become is the very essence of the powerful and ancient message that was left to you and me through many texts and traditions of those who have come before us.”
The message is this
“Those conditions that you most choose to have in your life you must first become as your life”
“Deceptively simple, this eloquent phrase is a summation of all the work performed by all the masters, all the saints, scientists, technicians and families, each of your spiritual forbearers, preparing you for this very time in earth and human history. “
“Those who claim to choose peace in their world must first become peace in themselves. Those that claim to choose prosperity, health and vitality for their loved ones must first become those very attributes themselves. Those that choose compassion for their loved ones and for those who look upon others with judgment and hate, must become that very compassion. The message of ‘becoming’ is the essence of the most sacred of the ancient text”.
“From this perspective the time of our outer technology is obsolete. You and I have grown beyond the time of being served by the first path. We have outgrown the requirement to build our selves outside of ourselves. Within this moment lives the opportunity to choose the memory of ourselves in our truest nature. Today you have the opportunity to bless the technology of the first path for all that it has offered. Bless the technology and move forward in the SECOND PATH. Far more sophisticated than any machines ever built by the most brilliant of our kind the second path represents a tremendous upgrade of conduct and our very standard of living. We now have the opportunity to become the healing medicines to become permanent and eternal health, to become the peace of the peacemakers, to become the compassion of the religious and vibrant companions of life and to do so gracefully”
“I invite you to reconsider the teachings that speak of a potent force of life that courses ‘through’ your body. Therein lives the separation. Beyond moving through you, that potent force is you
There is no separation between you and that force. It is you who determines your response to the bacteria, viruses and ultraviolet rays from a depleting ozone, even the flu bug that circulates through your office. It is you that determines your threshold of anger, hate, and rage at events that you have masterfully created in your life”.
“We are determining our outcome at this time in history by determining our response to this time in history. In our totality, we have something far greater to offer to ourselves and those we hold most dear, than we will ever find in a machine that is designed and implemented ‘out there”’.
“The time of our outer temples, outer networks, outer grids, and external guidance is nearing completion. For many, what has come as an inner knowing was stated clearly through the language of the time two thousand years ago, and even before. Our knowing reminds us that we live as an expression of a highly sophisticated union, a sacred marriage, between the elements of this earth and a directive non-physical force. We call that force ‘spirit’. Perhaps the most astounding of the ancient references restating its validity today is the link between feeling, though and their relationship to human physiology”.
“There are the dwellings of the son of man, and no one may come before the face of the (One) who knows not the angel of peace in each of the three. These are body, thoughts, and feelings”. (essence gospel of peace)
“To the degree that you embrace compassion in your life, change passes gracefully with ease. For those who require proof, that proof is now available. For others, simply knowing that there is a direct relationship between emotion and DNA comes a welcome validation for an inner knowing that has driven the course of their lives for years”
“Most everyone agrees, or at least suspects that our planet is important to us, that it somehow plays a role in how we live our lives. In the past, that role has often been unclear, nebulous at best. Precisely what is the role that earth plays in our lives ? To understand that role is to understand one of the most ancient of mysteries. That mystery allows you not only to be part of your world, but to intercede on your own behalf toward the desired outcome of the quality of your world. The memory of your relationship with earth is your memory of one of the great mysteries of the ancients. This is the mystery of the sacred circuit.
Modern studies of the life sciences have taught us that the brain is our master organ, regulating the function and performance of each cell of our bodies. Directing minute electrical pulses along biological circuits of nerve fiber, our brain conveys vital information to our muscles and glands. Each serves as an electrical substation within our body. Additionally, this line of reasoning has demonstrated that the brain actually controls each function, within every cell, of the human body. Each cell’s ability to regenerate, the processes of ageing and deterioration, triggers of chemical and hormonal secretion, even the immune system itself is directed by signals from the brain.
This concept is the primary reasoning behind many of our models of physical, as well as mental, health today.
While these functions of our brain have certainly been demonstrated, ancient texts remind us, and modern scientists suspect, that the model may be incomplete. Until very recently, a mystery surrounding our brains function has puzzled life scientists.
The mystery is this. Acknowledging that rhythmic impulses from the brain regulate the systems of the human body, where does the brain received the information necessary to perform these functions ?
Where do the brains signals come from ?
Data form western researchers has digitally proven a connection that the ancient texts have offered through tradition and lore for so long. Our brain is directly linked to another vital organ in our body
OUR BRAIN IS TUNED TO OUR HEART
Generating signals of reference, it is our heart that provides the opportunity for our brain to function optimally. The term used to describe this relationship is that of ‘entrainment’ As we build our concept of the sacred circuit it may be said that our heart entrains the brain, and our brain in turn entrains each cell of our body.
I emphasize that the reference signals of entrainment represent an opportunity of entrainment only. Choices in lifestyle and belief systems play an important role in our earth heart circuit.
Almost immediately, researchers asked the next question, “if our heart entrains our brain, and our brain entrains each cell of our body, then where does our heart receive its signals from, what precisely is our heart tuned to ? ( we will come back to this in part 3)
A few facts from HearthMath
The heart’s electromagnetic field is by far the most powerful produced by the body; it’s approximately five thousand times greater in strength than the field produced by the brain for example. The heart’s field not only permeates every cell in the body but also radiates outside of us. It can be measured up to eight to ten feet away with sensitive detectors called magnetometers.
Scientists at the Institute’s laboratory and elsewhere have found that the electrical information patters generated by the heart are detectable in our brain waves via a test known as a electroencephalogram EEG A series of experiments by Gary Schwartz and his colleagues at the University of Arizona found that the complex patterns of cardiac activity in our brain waves could not be fully explained by neurological or other established communication pathways. Their data provides evidence that there’s a direct energetic interaction between the electromagnetic field produced by the heart and that produced by the brain.
Furthermore, research evidence indicates that energetic information contained in the hearts field isn’t detected only by our own brains and bodies, but can also be registered by the people around score heart feelings affect both branches of the autonomic nervous system. They reduce the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, that branch of the system that speeds heart rate, constricts blood vessels, and stimulates the release of stress hormones, and increase the activity of the parasympathetic nervous system ( that branch of the system that slows heart rate and relaxes the body’s inner systems ) thereby increasing its effectiveness. In addition, the balance between these two branches of the nervous system is enhanced so that they work together with increased efficiency.
This collaboration results in diminished friction and wear and tear on the nerves and internal organs.
Stress is the enemy. It creates an incoherent internal state, pitting our biological systems against each other, which in turn affects how we think and feel. In the incoherence created by stress , our nervous system and heart rhythms become desynchronized and our hormonal balance is compromised.
Each core heart feeling has a powerful beneficial effect on how you relate to life. Unfortunately the experience of core heart feelings and attitudes is usually random rather than conscious.
With every beat, the heart generates a powerful blood pressure wave that travels rapidly throughout the arteries, much faster than the actual flow of blood. Its these waves of pressure that create what we feel as our pulse. Important rhythms exist in the oscillations of blood pressure waves. In healthy individuals a complex resonance occurs between blood pressure waves, respiration, and rhythms in the autonomic nervous system. Because pressure-wave patterns vary with the rhythmic activity of the heart, they represent yet another language through which the heart communicates with the rest of the body. At the receiving end of the arteries are all the body’s glands and organs. In essence, all of our cells ‘feel’ the waves of pressure generated by the heart and are dependent on them in more than one way.
Emotions act as amplifiers of our thoughts, perceptions and attitudes. Positive emotional states are rewarding and regenerative to the heart, immune system and hormonal system, while negative emotions drain these same systems
Positive emotions such as happiness appreciation compassion care, and love, not only change patterns of activity in the nervous system; they also reduce the production of the stress hormone cortisol.
Since the act of evoking heart intelligence has been shown to facilitate brain function, adjust balance in the autonomic nervous system, lower blood pressure, increase stress-relieving hormones, and increase immune responses, it shouldn’t surprise us that our bodies experience a sensation of well-being clear down to the cellular level – a sensation that we ourselves can induce. We feel better mentally and emotionally as a result of heart intelligence. And in the long run, that sensation translates into physical health
