Author Gregg Braden discussed the science behind miracles, the existence of an energy field that connects everything, and the power of heart-based emotion. Miracles appear inexplicable to the laws of nature as we understand them, yet they could be linked to the interconnected field around us, he outlined.
Our hearts generate strong electric and magnetic fields in our body which can change the structure of atoms; through heart emotions (as opposed to just thoughts) we contribute to the larger field around us, and can create peace and healing, he continued.
Recent discoveries about how the heart works show that it's in communication with the brain all the time-- a kind of coherence. Interestingly, he noted that the layers of the earth and its atmosphere (such as the ionosphere) share the same frequency as the heart/brain coherence. The Global Coherence Project is being developed to monitor how positive heart-directed intentions affect the field. Life affirming feelings help to perpetuate the field, whereas negative emotions contract the field, Braden suggested.
