Research shows that your heart has its own capacity for intelligence that is controlled neither by the brain nor by the autonomic nervous system. No one can yet explain exactly why the heart is able to beat independently of control by the brain or the influence of the nervous system, but it does. Energy cardiologists tell us that the heart has its own "little brain" that enables it to act independently of the big brain and to produce feelings, directions, and solutions all on its own.
