By video documents of the experiments by Doc Childre & Howard Martin (Co-founders of Heart Math Institute, & MD Rollin McCraty we learned that the
heart is able to discerne well before of the arrival of a randomly selected positive or aversive visual stimuli
anticipating the corresponding emotional reactions,
which can be measured and monitored by MFR-Spectroscopy.
That would mean heart can think & is able to transcend the space time continuum. The consequence is: Brain follows the heart, not the other way around. If the heart can be convinced to believe that there is no reason for stress, it will change to relax mode and influence the brain and the whole body to relax. Remarkable is the fact, that it's got as well a direct measurable influence on coherence of people around within reach.
In the seminar, several volunteer subjects were first exposed to stress. Then their stress level was measured and monitored. They were given a breathing training, guided by the electronic coach represented by a ball following y sinus curve as a pacing device for the participants. This breathing training was lasting several minutes. During the respiratory training the subjects significantly improved their coherence level.
After all I was wired for an experiment. Before starting the experiment I had been exposed to stress as well being confronted with a video performance of an ingenious but unlucky jazzmusician, who shortly after the performance died with cancer. Then it was my turn to participate in the breathing training and guess what happened:
However, I oriented myself not to breath at the visual pace of the electronically offered training but closed my eyes for Meditation.
I meditated successively with different methods. All methods together reduced blood pressure, irregularities in heart rhythm, heart rate and stress level decreased significantly.
From Mindful Awareness Meditation, to a Chakra Meditation on to the So Ham Meditation and finally Primordial Sound Meditation (PSM) the measured results were clearly most regular & stable at the PSM, and shifted rapidly back to the ideal levels. Which may give hints that Meditation can improve heart intelligence or helps making better use of it, totally free from electronics and technical aids. In other words: Meditation is ...
available unplugged, everywhere, at all times
giving an immediate positive stimulation on the Cardiovascular system.
My personal conclusion to the event is:
Whatever way You choose to learn more & find back to Your heart intelligence is alright. If You ...
want to rely on sophisticated electronic machines to support Your learning process or
prefer (like me) the more subtle path of Meditation
want to concentrate on Prana Yama sessions, deepening Your Yoga benefits
start to pray & find a good connection to Your soul in oneness
find yourself a good coach or prefer a therapist
use one of the many more possibilities and combinations of these
