Aligning your heart and mind in recovery

In sobriety (especially in the early stages), we rarely trust our decision making abilities. Do we take a leap of faith by following our heart or do we listen to the safe logic of our brain? 

What if you have the ability to synchronize your heart and brain so you never have to doubt yourself again? You would probably have more confidence, stop overthinking, and feel less stressed. We’re going to help you get one step closer to your goals today. 

Grab a cup of coffee or tea, get comfy, and learn how to align your heart and mind in recovery. Before I get into the exercise, I’m going to cover the science behind it so you understand why this works.

Science of the heart

Our hearts have 40,000 neuron receptors that think independently from the brain. It also possesses the ability to learn, make decisions, store both short and long term memories, feel, and sense- making our heart the little brain.

The heart is formed and starts beating before the brain is developed in fetuses. The heart still even beats after the brain dies as long as it has oxygen.

The heart sends more signals to the brain on how to feel than the brain to the heart. The brain then creates chemical responses based on our feelings. 

Not only is the heart the little brain, the heart’s electrical component is 60 times greater than the brain and 5,000 times more powerful in the electromagnetic field. This energetic field extends about three feet outside of our physical bodies. 

We are the only species on the entire planet that possess the ability to synchronize the heart/brain coherence. 

Everything starts with the heart

Our (lack of) healing isn’t because we have some kind of deficiency in healing. It’s because we haven’t connected to our heart space and healed from there. We keep going into our mind to heal the trauma. And our minds may be healed but it doesn’t mean our hearts have.

Our lack of manifesting what we want isn’t because we don’t have the right mindset. It’s because we haven’t connected to our heart space. 

When we keep attracting negativity into our lives, it isn’t because we’re undeserving of it. It’s because our heart’s energy is bringing that to us based on how we feel. 

Everything starts with the heart- healing, manifesting, feeling. Scientists have also been able to measure the electrical and magnetic frequency between the heart and the brain. What they found is that the conversations between the heart and brain’s electrical frequency is .1HZ. This exercise (below is a list of when you can do this exercise) will help you to align your heart and mind in recovery.

I’ll see you soon…in the meantime, love yourself so much that even a Hallmark Christmas movie would be jealous.
