Did you know that the heart emits the largest electromagnetic field of all the body's major organs? These fields and the information encoded into them can change based on how we are feeling, what we're thinking, and different emotions experienced. The heart even sends signals to the brain through a system of neurons that have both short-term and long-term memory, and these signals can affect our emotional experiences. The heart actually sends more signals to the brain than the brain does to the heart. The emotional information that's modulated and coded into these fields changes their nature, and these fields can impact those around us.
All of this has been well documented by the scientists and researchers at the HeartMath Institute in one of their 2016 publications: Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Intuitive Guidance of the Heart. Rollin McCraty, Ph.D, and director of research at The HeartMath Institute tells us, "we are fundamentally and deeply connected with each other and the planet itself."
Research findings have shown that as we practice heart coherence and radiate love and compassion, our heart generates a coherent electromagnetic wave into the local field environment that facilitates social coherence, whether in the home, workplace, classroom or sitting around a table. As more individuals radiate heart coherence, it builds an energetic field that makes it easier for others to connect with their heart. So, theoretically it is possible that enough people building individual and social coherence could actually contribute to an unfolding global coherence.
What exactly is heart coherence? It implies order, structure, and as Dr. Rozman puts it, "an alignment within and amongst systems – whether quantum particle, organisms, human beings, social groups, planets or galaxies." This harmonious order signifies a coherent system whose optimal functioning is directly related to the ease and flow in its processes. In other words, feelings of love, gratitude, appreciation and other ‘positive' emotions not only have an effect on our nervous system, but they have an affect on those around us, far beyond what we might have previously thought.
One study (as outlined in Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Intuitive Guidance of the Heart) conducted during the Israel-Lebanon war in the 1980's, featured organized groups of experienced meditators in Jerusalem, Yugoslavia, and the United states with the specific purpose of focusing attention on the area of conflict at various intervals over a 27-month period. During the course of the study, the levels of violence in Lebanon decreased between 40 and 80 percent each time a meditating group was in place. The average number of people killed during the war each day dropped from 12 to 3, and war-related injuries fell by 70 percent. Another great example is a study that was conducted in 1993 in Washington, D.C., which showed a 25 percent drop in crime rates when more than 4,000 meditators meditated during specific periods of time with that intention. The authors of the study collaborated with the local police department, the FBI, and 24 leading, independent criminologists and social scientists from major institutions, including the University of Maryland, the University of Texas, and Temple University.
Every individual's energy affects the collective field environment. This means each person's emotions and intentions generate an energy that affects the field. A first step in diffusing societal stress in the global field is for each of us to take personal responsibility for our own energies. We can do this by increasing our personal coherence and raising our vibratory rate, which helps us become more conscious of the thoughts, feelings, and attitudes that we are feeding the field each day. We have a choice in every moment to take to heart the significance of intentionally managing our energies. This is the free will or local freedom that can create global cohesion.

10 Ways To Find Your Courage
Do you wish you had the courage to walk through those doubts and fears that stand between you and your dreams? Over time, we often forget that the power to claim the life we choose exists within us. We often lose sight of our original, fearless self.
Here are ten spiritual principles designed to help you remember and restore your natural self-command. Allow them to remind you of what you already know is true and see how much easier it becomes to do what is true in the face of difficult moments.
Let Go of the Fear of What May be Ahead - You have the right to walk through this life without any fear of what may await you ahead.
Live in the Present Moment - Your original Self is already timeless and whole; any part of us that urges us to look for a bigger, better, or brighter sense of Self outside the present moment is both the seed of deception, as well as its bitter fruit, anxiety.
Minimize Thoughts That Imprison You - Anxious thoughts and feelings are not there to help us reach the promised land. Instead, they keep us a prisoner in the world of their empty promises. The courage to see the truth of this fact is the same as the courage we need to be free--to consciously walk away from these impostor powers.
Make Sure You Keep Good Interior Company - What we are now, and the kind of life we will come to know, is very much determined by the "interior" company we keep.
Don't Consent to Staying Stuck in Negative States - Just as you can't cage a lion in a child's crib, no negative state can keep you its captive once you've seen it for what it really is—nothing without your consent.
Let Yourself Climb Out of the Rut for Good - The first step to releasing ourselves from any sense of being in a rut begins with seeing this truth: The real nature of what we call our "daily grind" is really just our own mind telling itself, over and over again, how much it wishes things would change.
Allow the Past to Remain Where it Belongs, Behind You - By reclaiming our attention--by bringing ourselves back into the present moment--we are released from our unconscious relationship with the past, putting its pain behind us, where it belongs.
Choose to Remember What YOU Want - It's our right to remember what we want to remember, instead of what we are being given to remember!
Know You are Always Free to Change - The unimaginable reward of persisting through whatever stands in your way is the eventual--the inevitable--discovery of this fundamental truth: You are not only created to change, you are free to do so anytime you choose!

What About Swearing, and Why Do We Do It?
Whether we are fans of swearing or not, many of us are likely to resort to it now and again. To estimate the power of swearing, and work out where it comes from, we recently carried out a review of more than 100 academic papers on the subject from different disciplines. The study, published in Lingua, shows that the use of of taboo words can deeply affect the way we think, act and relate to each other.
Swearing arouses the emotions. This can be measured in autonomic responses such as increased sweating and sometimes increased heart rate. These changes suggest that swearing can trigger the "fight or flight" function. Neuroscientific research suggests that swearing might be located in different parts of the brain from other speech regions. Specifically, it might activate parts of the "limbic system" (including features known as the basal ganglia and the amygdala). These deep structures are involved in aspects of memory and emotion processing which are instinctive and difficult to inhibit. This might explain why swearing can remain intact in people who have suffered brain damage and struggle to speak as a result.
Laboratory-based experiments also show cognitive effects. We know that swear words command more attention and are better remembered than other words. But they also interfere with the cognitive processing of other words/stimuli--so it seems swearing can sometimes get in the way of thinking, too. This may, however, be worth it--at least sometimes. In experiments requiring people to submerse a hand in icy water, swearing produces pain relief. In these studies, vocalising a swear word leads to higher pain tolerance and higher pain threshold compared with neutral words. Other studies have found increased physical strength in people after swearing.
But swearing doesn't just influence our physical and mental selves—it also affects our relationships with others. Research in communication and linguistics has shown an array of distinctive social purposes of swearing--from expressing aggression and causing offence to social bonding, humour and story-telling. Bad language can even help us manage our identities and display intimacy and trust as well as boosting attention and dominance over other people.
Swearing's power does not come from the words themselves. Equally, it is not inherent in the word meanings or sounds: neither euphemisms nor similar sounding words have such a profound effect on us. One explanation is that "aversive conditioning"--the use of punishment to prevent continued swearing--typically occurs during childhood. This may establish a visceral connection between language use and emotional response. While this hypothesis sounds correct, it is weakly evidenced by only a handful of studies that have investigated memories of childhood punishment for swearing. There are almost no empirical studies of links between such memories and adult responses to swearing.
To get to the bottom of why swearing has such a profound effect on us, we need to investigate the nature of people's memories for swearing. What were their significant swearing incidents? Did swearing always bring about unpleasant consequences, such as punishment, or were there benefits too? What about people's ongoing experiences of swearing throughout the lifespan? After all, our research shows that swearing can sometimes help people bond with one another.
We think it might be possible for swearing to show a similar memory pattern to that for music--we remember and like the songs best that we listened to during adolescence. That's because, like music, swearing possibly takes on new meaning in adolescence. It becomes an important way to respond to the intense emotions we tend to have during this time, and an act that signals independence from parents and connection with friends. So, swear words and songs used during this time may become forever linked with important and highly memorable experiences.

Health & Healing Hack of the Week
I've been an advocate of fasting since I found out about it as a teenager when I read my first yoga book. I practiced fasting many times in my life when I started feeling "off" or "yucky", and always fasted when I felt a cold or flu coming on. But, we are programmed to believe that without food we would starve. And in fact, this belief I believe causes starvation. Fasting can be an extreme form of therapy, but recent research has found that they much more conservative intermittent fasting for only 16 hours, has a myriad of benefits for every system of the body. As far as weight loss goes, at about 14-16 hours, the body goes into "ketosis", producing ketones that directly break down fats to glucose from fat stores in the body. The easy way to tell if you've gone into ketosis is the hunger sensation. Now this hunger sensation is not a craving, it is the hunger you get after not eating for a prolonged period--in this case 14-16 hours. The tendency is to immediately eat something when we feel hungry. Use your mindfulness drill to allow the hunger. The hunger is signaling many processes in the body to increase, speed up, or engage, such as detoxification of the blood, increase in oxygen absorption, and the clearing of mucous throughout the body. When you "break" the fast, there is a greater release of serotonin and endorphins, and food has a more intense taste and enjoyment. Most conveniently, do not eat after dinner, then waiting to eat until lunch--usually about 16 hours. Then eat lunch and dinner within the remaining 8 hours. Your body will thank you, and you'll have more energy, and maybe lose that fat you've been hung up about. -- From 25 No Cost Health & Healing Hacks by Boyd Martin)

Breakthrough Quantum Support for Physical Well-Being and Longevity
NEW! Water Alive!
Many different research studies have demonstrated that magnetically treated water altered its physical properties and that this was due to "changed dimensions of water clusters" that led to an increase in conductivity, pH, dielectric constant and in vaporization enthalpy, but a decrease in density and surface tension. According to Dr. G. Pollack, structured water is the 4th phase of water beyond liquid, solid and vapor. This kind of structured water is naturally formed and can be found in mountain springs, glacier melts, water falls or water from unpolluted sources. It is also found inside the cells of fruits and vegetables. It has less viscosity and surface tension resulting in better penetration of cell walls and causing enhancement of hydration and bio-availability. Vital Force Technology has collected energy patterns of the world's best waterfalls and created a new formula called Water Alive.
