In a prior blog I spoke about getting hives for the fourth time in the same places on my body. I concluded that my cells had memory even for allergic responses and that is why there was specificity in the recurrence. Just the other day, I read a comment to remind me of a more significant aspect of cellular memory. It is that the medical community has become aware of cell memory being transferred from one person to another via the transplanted heart. This reminded me that I had read a book, The Heart's Code, years ago which I thought interesting, but did not command my attention as it does today. Although I worked 10 years as a clinical immunologist in Organ Transplantation Units at two medical schools, it is because of my current interest in quantum medicine that I wanted to re-read it and share the information.
The Heart's Code (Paul Pearsall, Broadway Books, NY. 1998) gives a powerful dissertation about the mind of the heart. Pearsall says that it is important to rethink our focus on the brain as the only organ that 'thinks' and that the heart may do so as well! Terms like field of "energy cardiology" and stored "info-energy" are used in describing this area of inquiry. My summary: As our body's systems consist of electrically charged cells and particles with specific functions, they are thus information-containing energy reservoirs which interact with other systems. These systems constantly exchange memories -- thinking!
The idea that heart transplant recipients receive more than just a mechanical pump and nothing more is being debunked by transplant patients speaking out about their changed interests and tastes following transplantation. One patient quoted by Pearsall told of her accurate dreams about her donor, about changes in food tastes and even her style of dancing (coming from the donor heart).
In mainstream medical practice, the idea that the heart transfers memory after transplantation is not only hard to accept, but definitely poorly understood. Yet, with more and more testimonials of heart transplant recipients together with a growing body of knowledge about cellular memory, it is becoming clearer that cellular memory can be transplanted with our cells.
If I have learned anything, it is that our bodies are constructed with an amazingly coordinated complexity of cells and electrical signals. While I can't grasp how all this is managed, I should not be surprised that the heart will be proven to play more roles than just to keep the blood flowing!
Without question, we are awesomely made!
