What Is The Heart’s Toroidal Field?
The heart is the most powerful source of electromagnetic energy in the human body and the magnetic fields produced by the heart have been shown to be involved in energetic communication (also referred to as cardioelectromagnetic communication). Research done at HeartMath Institute (HMI) suggests that the heart’s electrical field is approximately 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity created in the brain and is an important carrier of information. More and more studies are finding that the heart may be as complex as the brain is- the heart actually sends more communication to the brain than the brain sends information to the heart!
The heart has approximately 40,000 neurons and has the ability to process, learn and remember. It has its own emotions and in the field of neuro-cardiology, researchers are learning more about the “intuitive” nature of the heart and how we can apply this information to the relationships we have with ourselves and with others all around us. From the inside, your heart emanates an extremely powerful toroidal energetic field and it has been scientifically measured to go out as far as 5 miles from your heart.
This magnetic field is involved in energetic communication, a direct extension from your heart to everyone and everything. In my practice, I like to reference this field as a visual to depict and take in how we are all connected and one and also, individually, whole and complete. I find that once this connection is made, we can easily see how we matter and our choices count and how choosing to live in alignment with our selves can create a robust state of health and expansion- making the fundamentals more impactful, as we move into new moments knowing that we can intentionally empower our ecosystems, with the healing energies of presence-courage-appreciation-compassion, love, etc. which extends from us, by way of our heart, to the world and to each other.
From HMI’s findings, research has shown that the timing between pulses of the heart’s magnetic field is modulated by different emotional states- these studies have also shown that the magnetic signals generated by the heart have the capacity to affect individuals around us. It is also important to note that the heart is not that only source that can emit this type of electromagnetic field- every atom emits the same torus field: people, trees, the earth, the sun, the universe! We can apply this knowledge and use it as an opportunity to go within, connect, quiet the mind, regulate the brain and tap into our heart’s center.
What Does A State Of Coherence Look Like?
According to the HMI Research Director Dr. Rollin McCraty, “Coherence is the state when the heart, mind and emotions are in energetic alignment and cooperation. It is a state that builds resilience.” When parasympathetic and sympathetic systems are out of sync because one is filled with emotions such as anger, anxiety or frustration, this produces an erratic rhythm or what can be referred to as an incoherent state. Positive emotions such as compassion and love generate a harmonious pattern in our heart’s rhythm, leading to coherence and greater emotional regulation. When these harmonious interactions exist among our bodies’ systems, this is referred to as physiological coherence. As this increases, so does the brain’s alpha activity, which in turn supports us with:
- Stress management
- Learning new skills
- Making better choices
- Open mindedness
- Building resilience
- Adaptability to changes
- Psychosocial health
- Higher cognitive capacity
- High performance
- Problem solving
- Access to intuition and creativity
- …And much more!
When we allow our conscious awareness to be in our heart center, we can begin to shift our perspective from what is to what can be and realize what is actually possible. When your torus field is healthy and spinning in all directions with no obstruction, this generate an infinite amount of energy, vitality and life force- creating inner balance and raising our vibration. Your torus field can also act as a form of energetic protection- operating as a “force field” that can shield and dispel any negativity.
How Do I Become Aware Of My Heart’s Toroidal Field?
A simple visualization exercise can help you become more aware of your torus energy field. Imagine drawing energy upward from the ground (the Earth) through your feet down a central column. Imagine this bright light going up your entire center from your feet and out through the crown of your head. Then, imagine something like a water fountain where this light is pouring out of the crown of your head and all around you, going back down to the Earth and then up again through your feet again. Imagine this upward energy for a couple of minutes or until you feel comfortable. Do you see, sense or feel the energy pouring out around you?

Let Your Heartbeat Be Your Reminder
As we move forward each day, remember that you can always take a moment to place your hands over your heart to recenter, reassure and empower yourself. Here, you can feel your heartbeat, open up and shift accordingly. If you have any questions on this, feel free to ask or make sure to check out our other articles filled with resources on the heart based practice. It’s so simple! Feel free to sign up for our Free Let Go & Grow Membership for instant access to our video walkthrough of the heart based practice meditation.
This is a new era, where we can write and live a collective, new story- much like a portal in time, where light can be blinding, healing, eye opening, and freeing all at once- and the earth seems to be rearranging itself, as we continue to awaken and reorient- called to remember who, what and where we truly are. Rediscovering the power that has been within, not outside of, ourselves all along.
The idea that power, or even freedom, lies outside of the self is just an illusion that we, as a collective, have made into our reality. Just. Opt. Out. Would you rather be right or have life and heal? So whenever you forget, which we all do from time to time… hey human! Let your heartbeat be your reminder.
