In September 2001, two geostationary operational environmental satellites (GOES) orbiting the Earth detected a surge of global magnetism of nearly 50 units (nanoteslas) higher than any than they had read for the same time previously. The time was 9 a.m. EST, 15 minutes after the first plane hit the World Trade Center and about 15 minutes before the second plane hit. They had seen similar spikes during other global events, such as the death of Princess Diana.

“Specifically, it’s the heart-based emotion of the world’s population that results from such events that seems to be influencing the magnetic fields of the earth. What makes this discovery so significant is that those fields are now linked to everything from the stability of the climate to the peace between nations.

Discovery 1: It is well documented that the human heart generates the strongest magnetic field in the body, nearly 5,000 times stronger than that of the brain. This field creates a doughnut-shaped pattern that extends well beyond the physical body and has been measured at distances of five to eight feet from the physical heart. Data suggest that this field may be so large that we end up measuring it in miles; however, it’s beyond the scope of the equipment used to detect such fields.

Discovery 2: Certain layers of Earth’s atmosphere, along with the earth itself, generate what is now being called a ‘symphony’ of frequencies (between .01 and 300 hertz), some of which overlap the same ones created by the heart in its communication with the brain.  … In the words of HeartMath researchers, the relationship between the human heart and Earth’s magnetic field suggests that ‘strong collective emotion has a measurable impact on the earth’s geomagnetic field.'”

The examples above seem to provide scientific proof that the human heart can have influence on the Earth and on other people. If “negative” events can have so much effect, it is all the more reason to feel positive. Perhaps it is even a responsibility.

I recently had the good fortune to meet a man who was blind for much of his adult life. In that time he built several houses, had a wonderful family, grew his knowledge and helped a great deal of people. He died a couple weeks ago, but his example of courage continues serves as an inspiration to many, many people.

The word “courage” comes from the French “coeur,” the word for heart. Isn’t it odd that the ancients knew that the heart was the source of courage?

The Cowardly Lion in the Wizard of Oz asked the Wizard for a heart. But he had it in him all along, as he learned that he had unexpected resources of courage in the face of fearful odds. When we hear of disasters and negative events, we have to have courage instead of fear, courage, which is after all, faith in the power of the human heart. Collectively, our hearts can influence the world.
