o Research by the Institute for HeartMath in California4 has shown that the heart is the most powerful generator of electromagnetic energy in the human body:
o The heart’s electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity generated by the brain.
o The magnetic field produced by the heart is more than 5000 times greater in strength than the field generated by the brain
o The electromagnetic energy of the heart not only envelops every cell of the human body, but also extends out in all directions in the space around us
o Our cardiac field touches those within 8 – 10 feet of where we are positioned (and perhaps in more subtle ways at greater distances)
o One person’s heart signal can effect another’s brainwaves, and heart-brain synchronization can occur between two people when they interact
o Research conducted at the Institute of HeartMath suggests that the heart’s field is an important carrier of information
