In my last article on the Beginnings of the Heart, I talked about how the heart is the first organ that forms in a fetus and why this is important to the growth of the child.

With this article I want to further delve into this topic. If the fetal heart forms first and picks up information from its environment which then impacts its growth, what else is it impacting and how?

As I mentioned in the previous article the heart field of the fetus interacts with the heart field of the mother by picking up signals. These signals are what I would like to focus on in this article.

As humans we can be in either growth mode or protection mode, and there is a fine line of balance that allows for survival. What is the difference and why does it matter? Well, growth phase is when we are feeling “safe” in our environment and this results in the body releasing hormones that promote growth. Ultimately it means there is less production of stress hormones. When we are in the protection mode, we don’t feel safe, and there is a sense of fear or stress. This can result in a production of high levels of stress hormones.

Increase in stress hormones results in blood being distributed to the extremities rather than the organs and glands. This would take away the ability for the body to be rejuvenated and for new cells to grow. It also results in a lowered immunity, which makes the body more prone to infections.

Watch as Bruce Lipton explains this concept:

How does this fit in with the fetus and why does it matter?

The fetus is picking up the signals from the environment in the same way and it impacts the growth of its body. When the mother is responding to a stressful situation in her environment, she has an increase of stress hormones, adrenalin and cortisol. This results in two things happening.

First: she has a flight or fight response, resulting in her blood vessels being squeezed out of her gut to allow her to “run”.

Second: the blood vessels in the brain respond in the same way, leaving less room for conscious logic or reasoning; which come from the forebrain. The hindbrain, which controls reactivity and reflexes, takes over in order to respond quicker to the situation, as opposed to the forebrain which is connected to consciousness and awareness.

The fetus picks up this same information from the stress hormones that flow into its system and from the mother heart field when there is stress in the environment. The fetus is naturally in a state of growth, and requires blood and nutrition for optimal growth, so whichever organs and glands get the most blood supply will be the ones that grow. Stress signals can impact the growth of the fetus.

The stress hormones and the signals from the mother’s heart field of needing protection then impact the fetus’ brain too and how it grows. This information from the mother can result in up to 50 percent less intelligence in the child as the blood is shunted away from the forebrain into the hindbrain. Nature is creating the child to live in the same stressed environment, as the parents perceive. This results in a bigger hindbrain developing and a smaller forebrain. Also, studies have shown that it results in more muscle growth preparing the fetus for the fight or flight response, all the way impacting whether the fetus has positive gene expression or not.

If the signals from the fetus’ environment are “growth” signals, then the forebrain develops fully, and the organs and glands of the body also receive more nutrients and blood to help it grow. In this way, both parents are the genetic engineers of the fetus. The environment they provide, shapes the way in which the fetus’ genes are read, to how the organs and glands form, really it’s whole biology.

How does the Heart-Wall impact the growth?

If there is a Heart-Wall (a wall made of trapped emotions around the heart), this would also impact the signals received by the fetus (click here). Releasing the Heart-Wall of the mother and father would allow them to become more in tune with growth rather than protection, impacting their heart fields and the heart field of the fetus in the womb, or the child, even after birth.

Why is this important?
Because when the Heart-Wall surrounds the heart, then the mother and father are receiving and perceiving from their environments through filters of emotions – for example; fear, terror, or grief. This would get in the way of how they respond to their environment, and whether they are in growth or protection mode. When there is no Heart-Wall, we receive and perceive from the “true essence” of the heart field and this can contribute to growth for parents and the fetus or child after birth.

I personally feel that if each parent would release their Heart-Wall it would contribute to allowing the fetus to grow optimally and then also contribute to the life of the child. Of course there are many other factors, but if this one factor was to be considered as a contributory factor that can be taken out of the equation what a wonderful beginning for the fetus or child that can be. Releasing the Heart-Wall allows the individual to come from a more loving, more authentic space, and that can only be beneficial for the fetus or child.
