This week begins a series of writings I will share about the intelligence and power of our hearts’ magnetic field. Scientists have long understood inferential intuition as a function of the unconscious mind, accessing existing information within the brain from forgotten experiences. In the early 2000s, Dr. Dean Radin of the Institute of Noetic Sciences designed a study to document the phenomena involving the perception of future information and to understand the role the heart plays in receiving and relaying it.
The study used twenty-six participants, eleven males, and fifteen females, between the ages of eighteen and fifty-six. The participants were shown thirty calm and fifteen emotion-arousing color photos in a randomized order over the course of two weeks.
Data from more than 2,300 trials were collected, measuring skin conductance, electroencephalogram (EEG) readings, from which cortical and heartbeat-evoked potentials were derived, and electrocardiogram (ECG) readings, from which cardiac decelerations/accelerations were derived. These measures were used to investigate where and when in the brain and body intuitive information is processed. The electrophysiological data was recorded and registered prior to the visual stimulus in every instance.
The results determined that:
- The apprehension of information pertaining to future emotional events is a system-wide process involving the heart and the brain, and even the body as a whole.
- Informational input to the heart occurs about 4.75 seconds before the visual stimulus is presented…and then it travels to the brain via afferent vagal fibers, arriving about 1.3 seconds later.
- Once the prestimulus information is received, it appears to be processed in the same way as conventional sensory input.
- The bigger the emotion around the future event, the bigger the prestimulus hit to the heart.
- Women are more attuned to receiving this information than men based on more drastic changes in cortical levels and heartbeat variance. (This, we already know.)
Ultimately, the study presented compelling scientific evidence for the existence of transrational intuition. It further demonstrated that the body’s perceptual apparatus is continuously scanning the future.
Our intuition is turned on! It’s just waiting for us to put it to good use.
Now, let me ask you this: Can you imagine turning on your lawn mower and then going inside to binge your favorite show? Turning on your car and then going for a walk? Turning on the blender and then going to take a shower? I could go on and on with this one. My point is that people would think you were nuts if they saw you do any of that. Yet so many of us let our intuition idle in place, all the while it’s itching to go for a spin.
In the upcoming weeks, we will explore our heart intuition to understand better its vast, universal power over all our relationships and every facet of our life and life purpose. And I will teach you the surefire way that everyone can master their intuitive intelligence. This week explore the pulse and intelligence of your heart. Hooyah!
