The code? Re-arrange the letters of Earth - it spells Heart.
Simplistic and silly as this may sound to some, could it also be true?
Earth is the physical dimension where we learn to master the art of heart-centeredness - HeartMind - through kindness, compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, wisdom, courage, play, creativity, peace, and global unity . . . in spite of the difficulties and challenges of living here.
Indeed, each of us have had our share of struggles in a varity of forms, situations and levels of intensity throughout our lives.
The good news is, life doesn't have to be so difficult! Life can and does become easier and far more enjoyable than any of us ever thought possible. Although, in order to achieve greater ease and grace with life challenges, we must bravely take those first steps toward changing our thinking, changing the focus of our attention, changing how we interpret our interactions with others, and choosing to respond differently to the events and situations of our lives.
Becoming heart-centered helps us achieve these goals.
The following articles offer scientific evidence that explains why being heart-centered is so important to our health, happiness and peace of mind. From the Institute of Heart Math, and the research website of Dr. Glen Rein, we find scientific validation that may finally prove what the mystics have taught us all along - that love is the most powerful force of all and is key to creating lasting peace on earth.
FROM THE INSTITUTE OF HEART MATH
in Boulder Creek, California, USA
For centuries, the heart has been considered the source of emotion, courage and wisdom. At the Institute of HeartMath (IHM) Research Center, we are exploring the physiological mechanisms by which the heart communicates with the brain, thereby influencing information processing, perceptions, emotions and health. We are asking questions such as: Why do people experience the feeling or sensation of love and other positive emotional states in the area of the heart and what are the physiological ramifications of these emotions? How do stress and different emotional states affect the autonomic nervous system, the hormonal and immune systems, the heart and brain?
The heart is the most powerful generator of electromagnetic energy in the human body, producing the largest rhythmic electromagnetic field of any of the body's organs. The heart's electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity generated by the brain. This field, measured in the form of an electrocardiogram (ECG), can be detected anywhere on the surface of the body. Furthermore, the magnetic field produced by the heart is more than 5,000 times greater in strength than the field generated by the brain, and can be detected a number of feet away from the body, in all directions, using SQUID-based magnetometers (Figure 12). Prompted by our findings that the cardiac field is modulated by different emotional states (described in the previous section), we performed several studies to investigate the possibility that the electromagnetic field generated by the heart may transmit information that can be received by others.
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. However, we have now learned that communication between the heart and brain is actually 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 the brain can also affect performance.
Taken together, the results of these studies demonstrate that intentionally altering one's emotional state through heart focus modifies afferent neurological input from the heart to the brain. The data suggest that as people experience sincere positive feeling states, in which the heart's rhythms become more coherent, the changed information flow from the heart to the brain may act to modify cortical function and influence performance. These findings may also help explain the significant shifts in perception, increased mental clarity and heightened intuitive awareness many individuals have reported when practicing the HeartMath techniques.
Over the years we have experimented with different psychological and physiological measures, but it was consistently heart rate variability, or heart rhythms, that stood out as the most dynamic and reflective of inner emotional states and stress. It became clear that negative emotions lead to increased disorder in the heart's rhythms and in the autonomic nervous system, thereby adversely affecting the rest of the body. In contrast, positive emotions create increased harmonyand coherence in heart rhythms and improve balance in the nervous system. The health implications are easy to understand: Disharmony in the nervous system leads to inefficiency and increased stress on the heart and other organs while harmonious rhythms are more efficient and less stressful to the body's systems.
More intriguing are the dramatic positive changes that occur when techniques are applied that increase coherence in rhythmic patterns of heart rate variability. These include shifts in perception and the ability to reduce stress and deal more effectively with difficult situations. We observed that the heart was acting as though it had a mind of its own and was profoundly influencing the way we perceive and respond to the world. In essence, it appeared that the heart was affecting intelligence and awareness.
The answers to many of our original questions now provide a scientific basis to explain how and why the heart affects mental clarity, creativity, emotional balance and personal effectiveness. Our research and that of others indicate that the heart is far more than a simple pump. The heart is, in fact, a highly complex, self-organized information processing center with its own functional "brain" that communicates with and influences the cranial brain via the nervous system, hormonal system and other pathways. These influences profoundly affect brain function and most of the body's major organs, and ultimately determine the quality of life.

THE POWER OF THE HEART
from the research web site of Dr. Glen Rein
Dr. Glen Rein is probably the most knowledgeable scientist in this field and
it is worth knowing about this latest research. Dr. Rein believes that the
ancient wisdom is correct. The heart and not the brain is the seat of
emotions and health. It is the entry point of the soul within the body.
Using fast fournier transformation (FFT) he converted a conventional EKG
of the heart into a frequency diagram, something no one ever thought of
before. Lot's of mapping of brain frequencies have taken place but the
heart, he points out, is much more powerfully electrical than the brain.
Heart activity must be screened out when doing an EEG on the brain. What
he found is as significant as it is amazing.
Negative emotions such as frustration, unhappiness, anger, hatred,
jealousy and the like generate chaotic, weak, high frequency heartwave
graphs. Positive emotions, on the other hand, such as love, appreciation
and gratitude generate very orderly, low frequency, but very powerful
waves on the graph. The significance of this is much more than a
scientific curiosity as we shall see.
A model of the electromagnetic field of the heart shows a perfect, fractal,
toroidal (donut) shape. According to Dr. Rein such a shape is a subtle
energy transducer, i.e. it converts one form of energy to another, because
it generates an infinite number of harmonics allowing a step down or
demodulation of higher energies such as we have been calling tachyon
energy. Energy travels through harmonics with no loss of power. Think of it
as a staircase for energies from the beyond.
Only when the heart is coherent, as in feelings of love and connectedness,
can the energy come through in force. Resonance and coherence in an
orderly system are the apparent keys to tapping the tachyon field. (And
maybe this is why lovers always seem so healthy despite all that tachyon
discharge.) This is apparently what Dr. Badgley discovered when he found
that different substances affected the pulse (a measure of the heartbeat)
whenever they entered the life field. Dr. Rein decided to prove it by
conducting experiments in which healers were able to change the absorption
spectrum of DNA by either winding the coil tighter or unwinding it
according to their intention. This was even done from a mile away when the
spectrograph operator had no idea when the experiment was taking place.
Most importantly, the ability to achieve this feat only took place when the
healers changed their heart frequencies to a highly coherent state, in
other words, when they were loving.
From this we can get a good idea about the interface of emotions and
health, the new field of psychoneuroimmunology. People are first and
foremost their own healers. They are ultimately responsible for their own
health whether they know it or not. Anyone who claims to be able to heal
you is a liar. A true healer assists the mind/body to heal itself.
If the body really does require its own supply of tachyon energy to stay
healthy then perhaps much of it does come from the heart, a sort of dynamo
feeding healthful energy into the body. A chronically negative person,
depressed, angry, guilt-ridden, anxious or hateful, cuts off their own
healing, healthful source of life energy by disordering and blocking their
heartwaves. Sickness follows eventually. Happy people tend to be healthy
people. Could this be why?
It also explains the fact that holy men throughout history have stressed
love as a path to God. Only in loving states does God's energy become
available to mortals to work divine magic upon them.
