Our Heart Has A Consciousness Of Its Own

I’ve always felt inside that the heart is where the spark of energy, our soul resides. We are all connected and this is a stunning article!

Many believe that conscious awareness originates in the brain alone. Recent scientific research suggests that consciousness actually emerges from the brain and body acting together. A growing body of evidence suggests that the heart plays a particularly significant role in this process.

Far more than a simple pump, as was once believed, the heart is now recognized by scientists as a highly complex system with its own functional “brain.”

Research in the new discipline of neurocardiology shows that the heart is a sensory organ and a sophisticated center for receiving and processing information. The nervous system within the heart (or “heart brain”) enables it to learn, remember, and make functional decisions independent of the brain’s cerebral cortex. Moreover, numerous experiments have demonstrated that the signals the heart continuously sends to the brain influence the function of higher brain centers involved in perception, cognition, and emotional processing.

Ice In A Pink Paradise…

image

One of my amazing fellow food bloggers who I hold in very high esteem who has encouraged me from the very beginning of my blogging, has inspired me for this post.  Fae @ Twist and Tango very recently posted a recipe for Ice In Paradise/Yakh Dar Behesht.  A sweet Persian dessert that I fell in love with straight away. I knew I had to make it once I had seen it!

I had all the ingredients to go, apart from the clear rose water but I had a dark pink rose syrup that I used in its place. Which now makes it ice in a pink paradise! I have halved the original recipe, as it’s just for my family!

So beautiful and so very elegant, the creaminess of the diamond chilled delicacy just melts in your mouth. Thank you Fae for introducing me to this gorgeous dessert! And for all your continued love and support! Much love D xxxx

INGREDIENTS

2 cups milk, non dairy option ~ rice/almond milk
50g cornstarch
75g caster sugar
1 tbsp rose syrup
a pinch of ground cardamom

METHOD

• On a low heat, in a non stick saucepan mix the cornstarch with a wooden spoon into the milk and stir until well combined

image

• Add the sugar and keep stirring until the sugar dissolves

• Turn up the heat to medium, still consistently stirring. It will thicken up quite quickly and at this stage pour in the rose syrup and cardamom

image

• Keep mixing to avoid it sticking and becoming lumpy. Once it reaches a custard consistency, take off the heat. Set it in a shallow plate or dish

image

• Place in the fridge for a few hours until firm and chilled

• Garnish with ground pistachio and cut with a sharp knife into diamond shapes
