Research over the last 30 years has begun to explore the intrinsic relationship between biology and quantum mechanics, leading to the new science of quantum biology. The convergence of these 2 seemingly disparate disciplines has revolutionized current thought on biophysiology and overall health and wellness. Important concepts covered in this review are the sensory and intuitive intelligence of the heart, the phenomenon of coherence, heart rate variability (HRV) and the creation of heart rhythms, the dynamic role of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), and the bidirectional communication network between the heart and the brain. Neurocardiology and psychoneurophysiology come into play, as well as electromagnetic fields (EMFs), biofield physiology, and quantum mechanics.
This paper provides an overview of the heart as a physiological and sensory organ at the seat of innate intuitive intelligence. The energetic nature of the heart co-creates the ability to build resilience, and establishing emotional self-regulation is the basis for achieving systems-wide coherence and optimal states of wellbeing for people and those that surround them, both human and animal.
