The Role of the Brain When the Heart is Conducting the Orchestra

When we create that beautiful state of coherence between the heart and brain, we are allowing our heart to conduct the orchestra of our integrated being as described above.  But what is the role of the brain?

We have two hemispheres of our brain, commonly referred to as the left brain and right brain.

The left brain is responsible for processing and analyzing information and the right brain is responsible for filtering Truth. 

Whether you are crunching numbers or painting a landscape, these two hemispheres should be integrated and balanced for optimal brain function in your activity.

Therefore, when we are in a state of heart-brain coherence, the heart is conducting the orchestra and sending messages, via chemicals, hormones, and electromagnetic signals to the brain, and the brain becomes ordered, synchronized, and balanced, allowing it to process information more efficiently and focus the mind on achieving the most positive and harmonious outcome. 

The heart is also creating the proper chemistry to allow for access to higher intelligence and Divine guidance.  This coherence between the heart and brain allows the higher chakras to expand and it strengthens the spirit cord connection to Divine Source.  Thus, the entire orchestra is in perfect harmony and flow, creating beautiful music:  

“The heart is in continuous communication with the brain and body through multiple pathways: neurologically, (through the Autonomic Nervous System) biochemically (through hormones), biophysically (through pressure and sound waves), and energetically (through electromagnetic field interactions). This makes the heart uniquely well positioned to act as the global coordinator in the body’s symphony of functions, binding and synchronizing the system as a whole. Because of the extent of the heart’s influence on physiological, cognitive, and emotional systems, the heart provides a central point of reference from which the dynamics of such processes can be regulated.”  (Ref)
