To say there is an intimate connection between brain and heart is an understatement.
The connection runs deep. And the long held belief that the heart is just there to pump blood is no longer prevalent thinking.
There is a very deep connection and essentially this connection suggests the heart may actually be not just intimately connected to the brain, but be as smart if not smarter than the brain.
In life we are never taught to rely on our heart for information. We are always told to use our minds and figure things out with our brains, but there is research that suggests the heart is all knowing. It is wise and intuitive and it carries memories much like the brain, but on an even deeper level.
