The thoughts we think in our Mind, and the emotions we feel in the Heart, give form and substance to the physical reality we experience as life.
Thoughts can and do remain as unmanifested forms in the Mind unless and until we give them substance with the power of feeling and emotion. When a thought is given substance with emotion it is “felt” in the Heart, which then radiates energy and information out into the physical world. The most immediate and intimate aspect of our physical life experience is the Body, and that is where the energy of the Heart has the greatest influence and impact.
The Human Body is a communications device, perceiving the thoughts, feelings, and images in the Mind and sending information back to Source through the Heart.
Research has also shown that the heart is a key component of the emotional system. Scientists now understand that the heart not only responds to emotion, but that the signals generated by its rhythmic activity actually play a major part in determining the quality of our emotional experience from moment to moment.
How does the Mind Body Connection work?
When you think a thought in your head, or use the Body to perceive physical life experience, an image is created in the Mind. That image contains information, including shape or form and the feeling used to give substance to the form.
All thought or form is neutral – neither positive nor negative – in its pure form. All feeling has either a positive (Love-based) or negative (fear-based) charge or vibration. There is no such thing as a “neutral” feeling. If you are “feeling” neutral, it means there is an absence of emotion, or substance, to your thought.
If you are perceiving an object in your physical reality and say you have no feelings about it, that is not entirely accurate. A thought-form that has not been given substance with feeling cannot manifest into physical reality. When you see it with your eyes, hear it with your ears, touch it with your fingers – you are “feeling” it, and that feeling must have a positive or negative charge. With practice you can learn to discern this.
When the Heart field is coherent, the energy and information sent to the Body results in improved health and well being, better performance at work, improvement in relationships, increased problem-solving abilities, intuition, and much more. In other words, when images in the Mind (thought + feeling) are Love-based, the Body benefits in many ways.
At the Da Vinci Centre, patients going through the Da Vinci Universal Treatment protocols will also learn about the importance of the mind-heart connection through a series of videos. In addition, they will have the opportunity to practice achieving this beautiful state of being by practicing using the emWave® educational self-regulation technology and the tools and techniques of the HeartMath System, incorporating over 23 years of scientific research on the psychophysiology of stress, emotions and heart-brain interactions.
Videos to watch:
The deliciousness of milk and honey is the reflection of the pure heart:
from that heart the sweetness of every sweet thing is derived.
The heart is the substance, and the world the accident:
how should the heart’s shadow be the object of the heart’s desire?
Is that pure heart the heart that is enamored of riches or power,
or is submissive to this black earth and water of the body,
or to vain fancies it worships in the darkness for the sake of fame?
The heart is nothing but the Sea of Light:
is the heart the place of vision of God–and then blind?
