At root Yoga is about recognizing the interconnectedness of all things. Every molecule of our bodies was merely stardust millennia ago. Some connections are subtle and ancient like our relationship to the stars. Some are ongoing and appear just below our ability to sense them. Here is a way we are all connected at the heart level through electromagnetic energy.
"Our heart creates the strongest electromagnetic field of our body. It is up to sixty times as strong as the field the brain generates and can be detected up to fifteen feet from the body."
Think of this the next time you are on a bus, or meeting with your boss or hugging a loved one. Your hearts electromagnetic energy is constantly in contact with everyone around you. It is a beautiful way we are all connected.
