Your Supernatural Heart
Why Your Heart May Be A “Paranormal” Organ

By Dorraine Fisher

There’s an old joke that tells us all to think with our brains more because our hearts are stupid. But real research about the nature of our hearts may indicate that it might be the other way around.

Ancient Egyptians, during their embalming and mummification process of the dead, took great care in removing most of the organs from the body and storing them separately in earthenware jars. But in order to avoid damage to the head and face of the deceased, they pulled the brain out through the nose in small bits. In a process where they took great care in preserving a person’s body for the next life, it seems they regarded the brain as less important than other organs.  And certainly less important than the heart, which was carefully left intact inside the body. It was believed that the heart was the central part of a person’s entire being, knowledge, wisdom, and consciousness. Did they know something we, to this day, still don’t know? Scriptures and ancient spiritual teachings make almost no references to the brain but many references to the heart. Why?

It’s pretty safe to say that these days the brain is the most respected organ in the body; respected by science at least as our most complex organ full of secrets we’ve yet to unlock. The brain, for centuries, was considered the center of our consciousness; the place where all our memories and knowledge are stored, and ultimately the most important organ in our bodies. Could we be wrong?

Our central nervous system, believed to be completely controlled by the brain, is also believed to control our feelings and emotions. But since the beginning of time, we humans have always pointed to our hearts when referring to those things. Why is that? Do we have an innate sense of knowing, as when we feel emotions, we feel them in our hearts?

What are we to think about all the poetry and literature dedicated to matters of the heart? What are we to think of all those English words like heartwarming, heartfelt, or heartbroken? What does it really mean to say we love someone with all our heart? A lot of time has been spent by scientists trying to figure out how the brain falls in love when we’ve all been led to think it has less to do with the brain and more about the heart. And if it doesn’t, then why so many references to the heart? Was it all a mistake? 

The great philosopher, Aristotle, believed the heart was the most important organ in the body, and that the heart’s natural warming action of the body to be the central core of a human’s intelligence and emotion. The famous Greek physician, Galen, best-known as a surgeon to gladiators in Rome, had a similar belief stating that the heart was the “hearthstone and source of the innate heat by which the animal is governed.” And he claimed the function of the beating of the heart was proof of its intelligence.

But these “matters of the heart” may run even deeper than all that. The heart has some mysterious almost “paranormal”  or supernatural qualities.

Heart surgeons that specialize in heart transplants report various personality changes in patients after they receive their new donor-provided hearts. Patients were also found to exhibit freakish changes in core values, fears, aspirations, food preferences, hobbies, and interests after their surgeries. So, is our heart the seat of our entire personality? Is it our heart that actually makes us who we are?

Heartmath Institute (HMI) is a non-profit research and educational organization dedicated to improving the lives and health of humanity through their extensive studies of the inner workings and capabilities of the human heart. And they’ve made some groundbreaking discoveries.

In fetal development, the heart is the first organ to develop, and it starts functioning fully before the brain even begins to form. Is it because the heart is more important to life? The heart possesses its own cognitive function. This means we at least do some of our thinking with our hearts. In fact, the heart has a “brain” of its own complete with a complex set of neurons, neurotransmitters, and cells that can operate independently of your cranial brain.

Your heart sends more information to your brain than your brain sends to your heart. And the signals the heart sends to your brain affect your emotional experiences. Your heart’s rhythms also aid your brain with problem-solving and creativity. So, if you’ve ever considered your creative pursuits to be “closer to your heart,” you’re absolutely correct.

Could our hearts be our psychic center? Your heart also radiates its own electromagnetic field (EMF)that changes with your emotions. And others close to you may receive signals about the quality of those emotions as they radiate from your heart. So, we all unconsciously read each other’s energy through our reception of emissions from our hearts. Mystics and shamans around the world believe that love is more of a type of energy than simply an emotion. They believe all the energy that connects us all to each other radiates through our hearts. And they believe that living from our hearts is a more fulfilling way to live. These beliefs go back thousands of years. Just like the ancient Egyptians, they believe the heart is the most important organ in our bodies. Did the ancients know something we’ve forgotten or ignored?  Do these energy emissions radiating from our hearts make up what is referred to as the “power of love?”

For all these reasons, the heart is somewhat paranormal or supernatural with many more mysteries inside it to explore. And like many paranormal subjects, there are many things we may never know. And we may need to reevaluate how we think about the act of thinking itself.  But all this information suggests that maybe if we start thinking more with our hearts instead of our brains, we’ll figure it all out more quickly.
