THE Cheyenne say that “our first teacher is our own heart,” but mainstream science offers few apples to that master instructor.
To Western medical schools the heart is just a mechanical blood pump.
That view is beginning to change. The medical community is being challenged to expand its thinking about human biology, health, and wellness.
Leading-edge research in holistic medicine, biophysics, bioenergetics, and biocentrism all point in the same direction — showing our bodies are more than physical molecules and chemicals.
Explaining why and how we are more, H. P. Blavatsky asserted in The Secret Doctrine (2:149) that “The whole issue of the quarrel between the profane and the esoteric sciences, depends upon the belief in, and demonstration of,
the existence of an astral body within the physical, the former independent of the latter.”
A comparable concept to the occult teaching is explained by today’s frontier science in the ‘biofield’ concept – a human body-field that is described as a structured web of information and energy that underlies and informs our physical body, and rules our state of health and well-being.
The heart is the primary contributor, regulator and overseer of a dynamic web of consciousness. “Electrically, the heart generates over 500 times more electricity than the brain,” writes BioCare Certified Neurofeedback Provider, Helena E. Kerekhazi, MS, NRNP. “It is the biggest generator in the body.”
“We have to subtract out the heart artifact from the brainwaves when we record, so strong is the signal.”
