“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it” – Proverbs 4:23.
“A merry heart doeth good like medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones” – Proverbs 17:22
The heart, this most precious organ beats 100,000 times a day on average, often undervalued and rarely thought about, and yet when you do take the time to stop for a moment and place your hands over your heart space we can begin to appreciate the beauty of it.
In 1932, Bremer of Harvard filmed the blood in the very early embryo circulating in self-propelled mode in spiralling streams before the heart was functioning. Amazingly, he was so impressed with the spiralling nature of the blood flow pattern that he failed to realize that the phenomena before him had demolished the pressure propulsion principle. Earlier in 1920, Steiner, of the Goetheanum in Switzerland had pointed out in lectures to medical doctors that the heart was not a pump forcing inert blood to move with pressure but that the blood was propelled with its own biological momentum, as can be seen in the embryo, and boosts itself with “induced” momenta from the heart. He also stated that the pressure does not cause the blood to circulate but is caused by interrupting the circulation. Experimental corroboration of Steiner’s concepts in the embryo and adult is herein presented.
As strange as it may sound I think it is a good habit to get in to sending appreciative thoughts to your heart, after all, positive emotions have been shown to be good for the heart and lower blood pressure.
Heart disease is above cancer as a leading cause of death. Stress, poor diet, a sedentary lifestyle and emotional turmoil all contribute to diseases associated with the heart.
Love, appreciation, forgiveness, peace, gratitude and patience are all positive emotions to maintain a steady, healthy and strong heart.
Hate, anger, (remember the study that shows 5 minutes of anger impairs the immune system for more than 6 hours) resentment and bitterness are toxic emotions that can lead to serious heart problems.
Healthy heart habits
Do away with toxic emotions and instead embrace love, forgiveness and gratitude
Spend time in uplifting company
