What is intuition?

Is it just new-age mumbo jumbo?

The Institute of Heartmath studied intuition scientifically and found that participants experienced a significantly greater heart-rate deceleration before future emotional stimuli compared to calm stimuli, indicating that their hearts appeared to receive and respond to intuitive information. Evidence from the electroencephalogram (EEG) and electro…cardiogram (ECG) show that the heart responded to the stimuli before they were even presented to the participants.

“Overall, they have independently replicated and extended previous research documenting prestimulus responses. It appears that the heart is involved in the processing and decoding of intuitive information. This study presents compelling evidence that the body’s perceptual apparatus is continuously scanning the future.”

Further research demonstrated that the frontal cortex, temporal, occipital, and parietal areas of the brain appear to be involved in the processing of prestimulus information.

“Overall, Their data suggest that the heart and brain, together, are involved in receiving, processing, and decoding intuitive information. On the basis of these results and those of other research, it would thus appear that intuitive perception is a system-wide process in which both the heart and brain (and possibly other bodily systems) play a critical role.”

So when you think you can FEEL something that hasn’t happened yet, your heart is actually reacting to it prior to it’s happening in a way we can scientifically measure. Don’t forget to feel.
