Owning a cat can reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes by more than 30%.

Our heart beat can change and it can even mimic the music we are listening to.

Every day the heart creates enough energy to drive a truck 20 miles.

The heart can keep beating separate from the body because it has its own electrical impulse source.

The heart is not located on the left side of our body but in the center of our chest.

When we are emotionally heartbroken (hurt), stress hormones are released that stun the heart causing us to physically feel pain in our chest.

And lastly, did you know that the heart is the first organ to form in the embryo? (There is some debate on this as the “brain also develops in the first weeks, but it is not so developed and integrated with the nervous system. There is less coordination between the existing brain and the other organs…So, the heart is the first organ because it is anatomically complete and able to transport blood.” From Dr. Iman Sabri’s paper: Assessment of Age in Fetus)

The heart really is so much more than a muscle sending life and giving fluid through our veins. It is what stimulates PASSION. It is what COMPASSION is made of. It could be said that religion is the content of the head. Spirituality is the content of the heart.

Both are needed but it is a long journey from our head to our heart. Often when both are utilized, we call it a breakthrough or an aha moment. We encounter many perils and road blocks throughout the course of our lives and there are times when we may want to cut the trip short or turn around and go back. Sometimes we feel strong urgings to follow our heart.

Trusting your heart is another way of speaking about our intuitive sixth sense that abides within.
