Did you know that the heart and brain communicate through electromagnetic energy? Research studies have shown that the heart communicates information to the brain and throughout the body via electromagnetic field interactions. The heart generates the body’s most powerful and most extensive rhythmic electromagnetic field. The heart’s magnetic component is at least 500 times stronger (and some studies have estimated 5,000 times stronger) than the brain’s magnetic field and can be detected several feet away from the body. McCraty and colleagues have proposed that this heart field acts as a carrier wave for information that provides a global synchronizing signal for the entire body.
