“The physical heart is our strongest muscle; it also functions as the core of our feeling dimension. Like any muscle, the heart grows stronger with use. By creating a feeling connection between our heart and our voice, thought, touch, sight and hearing, we instantly access the safest, most accessible method for opening the heart. We create this feeling connection by allowing awareness to penetrate the heart. The moment this connection occurs we contact the love of our Higher Self; we transcend fear, sorrow, and anger; and we heal ourselves and others."
-Dan Millman, No Ordinary Moments, 1992, p. 261
For example, during stress, the heart rhythm pattern is erratic and disordered. The corresponding pattern of neural signals traveling from the heart to the brain inhibits higher cognitive functions. Thus, we are limited in our ability to think clearly, remember, learn, reason and make effective decisions.
