Our Hearts Think: Why Love healing works

Why Love Heals: Science

The traditional approach of emotional healing through psychoanalysis of the mind-thought process is in question as we begin to understand, at a scientific level, that the heart neurons can influence the brain’s responses.  This is why love-energy healing works.

In spiritual healing terms, we often refer to the mind as the EGO!  The mind will argue, looking for logical answers to emotional problems. We know that sometimes, there is no logical answer…..that some form of programming occurs in response to emotional events. Trauma bad….Love good!  

Falling in love is a FEELING that we try to translate through brain constructs of words, music, and art. The terror and pain of fear, betrayal and grief can seem illogical as therapists strive to quantify and “fix” the underlying cause.

Have you ever tried to tell someone how you feel but just can’t find the adequate words?

We might ask…So What?

Theta Meditation can help us access the FEELING-MEMORIES of past love, happiness, joy and freedom which releases the physiological chemicals that send messages to the brain to heal the wrong thoughts. 

Why Theta? Because theta brain waves by-pass the “buts” of reason:  why we should be hurt angry or sad.  In Theta there is no action-consequence pathway. It just is.

Try it. The experience is amazing.

Excerpt from Science of the HeartNew Article

Exploring the Role of the Heart in Human Performance
An Overview of Research Conducted by the HeartMath Institute (excerpt)

In addition to its extensive neurological interactions, the heart also communicates with the brain and body biochemically by way of the hormones it produces. Although not typically thought of as an endocrine gland, the heart actually manufactures and secretes a number of hormones and neurotransmitters that have a wide-ranging impact on the body as a whole.

The heart contains cells that synthesize and release catecholamines (norepinephrine, epinephrine and dopamine), which are neurotransmitters once thought to be produced only by neurons in the brain and ganglia.[23] More recently, it was discovered the heart also manufactures and secretes oxytocin, which can act as a neurotransmitter and commonly is referred to as the love or socialbonding hormone. Beyond its well-known functions in childbirth and lactation, oxytocin also has been shown to be involved in cognition, tolerance, trust and friendship and the establishment of enduring pair-bonds. Remarkably, concentrations of oxytocin produced in the heart are in the same range as those produced in the brain.[24]
Scientists have learned that the brain is not the ultimate master of our bodies: that the squishy mass in our heads does not direct all thought or emotion through pathways of neurones.

Traditionally, the study of communication pathways between the head and heart has been approached from a rather one-sided perspective, with scientists focusing primarily on the heart’s responses to the brain’s commands. We have learned, however, that communication between the heart and brain actually is a dynamic, ongoing, two-way dialogue, with each organ continuously influencing the other’s function. Research has shown that the heart communicates to the brain in four major ways: neurologically (through the transmission of nerve impulses), biochemically (via hormones and neurotransmitters), biophysically (through pressure waves) and energetically (through electromagnetic field interactions). Communication along all these conduits significantly affects the brain’s activity. Moreover, our research shows that messages the heart sends to the brain also can affect performance.
