I attended an online webinar last week by Parisha Taylor. She shared information about research that was done at the HeartMath Institute in California. Their research proves that the heart is so much more than just a muscle that pumps blood throughout our bodies. HeartMath’s research has found that the heart is a sophisticated information encoding and processing center, with an intrinsic nervous system, or “little brain” which enables the heart to learn, remember, and make functional decisions independent of the head’s brain. When she tells a person to “follow your heart,” the meaning of that advice has expanded exponentially for me now.
