Did you know your heart maintains a sophisticated circuitry of neurons, neurotransmitters, proteins, and support cells that qualify it as an intelligent brain? The heart is constantly involved with processes throughout the body, whether it is pumping blood through your system, communicating with cells or sending out strong rhythmic signals to the cranial brain that dramatically affect thinking, perception and performance. Achieving an optimal state depends on the synchronicity/harmony of bodily systems including maintaining what is known as a coherent heart, one that is marked by smooth rhythms, helps a great deal. The coherent heart sends out coherent signals to the brain and the rest of the body, thus promoting system-wide harmony.
