My radio interview with Drew Heriot, the director of ‘The Secret’ and his new movie, ‘The Power of The Heart’


THE POWER OF THE HEARTIt was a pretty good week for me getting to interview Drew Heriot, the director of The Secret and The Power Of The Heart which is just such a wonderful movie.  I have been banging on about it on here, and to my close friends.  Here’s our chat which really enjoyed and even more so getting to meet this very nice guy face to face.   Have you seen The Power of The Heart?  NO? Well for heavens sakes (literally), download it or buy the DVD soon.  You won’t regret it!

The Heart’s Intuitive Intelligence. I’m just fascinated about what we don’t know about the heart

The wonderful and brilliant scientists over at the Institute of HeartMath have done some amazing work in shedding light on some very significant findings regarding the science of the heart.

The Institute of HeartMath is an internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization dedicated to helping people reduce stress, self-regulate emotions and build energy and resilience for healthy, happy lives. HeartMath tools, technology and training teach people to rely on the intelligence of their hearts in concert with their minds at home, school, work and play.

A large portion of their research has investigated heart and brain interaction. Researchers at the institute have examined how the heart and brain communicate with each other and how that affects our consciousness and the way in which we perceive our world.

Their research has shed light on a number of facts, one for example, is when a person is feeling really positive emotions like gratitude, love, or appreciation, that the heart beats out a very different message. They’ve been able to determine this by the fact that the heart beats out the largest electromagnetic field produced in the body, and they can gather data from it.

“Emotional information is actually coded and modulated into these fields. By learning to shift our emotions, we are changing the information coded into the magnetic fields that are radiated by the heart, and that can impact those around us. We are fundamentally and deeply connected with each other and the planet itself.” – Rolin McCratey , Ph.D, Director of Research at the Institute.
This is very important work, as again, it shows how the heart plays an important role far beyond what is commonly known. Did you know that your heart emits electromagnetic fields that change according to your emotions? Did you know that the human heart has a magnetic field that can be measured up to several feet away from the human body? Did you know that positive emotions create physiological benefits in your body? Did you know that you can boost your immune system by conjuring up positive emotions? Did you know that negative emotions can create a nervous system chaos, and that positive emotions do the complete opposite? Did you know that the heart has a system of neurons that have both short term and long term memory, and that their signals sent to the brain can affect our emotional experiences? Did you know that in fetal development, the heart forms and starts beating before the brain is developed? Did you know that a mother’s brainwaves can synchronize to her baby’s heartbeats? Did you know that the heart sends more information to the brain than vice versa?

All of these facts, published researched papers and more can be accessed at Above is a video from the institute about the intuitive intelligence of the heart. Definitely worth a look.   (this article is care of

THE POWER OF THE HEART; a new movie from the makers of The Secret. Amazing

I saw this movie recently, and I have to say that it has really, truly opened me up to a way of thinking about the heart, my heart in a way I’d never thought of before.  I mean I think about my soul, I think abut my spirit, I think about my ego, my intuition and i think about Higher Self, but it blows me away that I only think about my heart if it’s to do with a discussion or thought about meeting a man.  But even then, I feel this is such a limited way of acknowledging something that quite possibly has more power than all of the above.  And might be more useful for me to get in touch with, and listen to than any of these other parts that I have got to know along the way. Maybe the heart, is the ruling Queen of them all?  I think one day we might all be talking about our hearts a lot more broadly than we ever have before. x
