Heart EM Spectrum Working & Uninterrupted Focus

Did two sessions today, one to focus for 20 minutes without any activity, the other to measure how effectively I could return to Poise after detecting an upset using the Hearmath Pro. The device also took readings of the frequency spectrum of my system and the average of my system EM power emissions over the length of the session looked like this:

By Working I mean working in a quiet environment with no immediate physical danger while editing a document. While doing the uninterrupted session I was sitting in the exact same place. Instead of editing a document I was simply focussing on paced breathing. Both sessions were of similar length, 20 and 25 minutes respectively.

Each session had a spike at the .1Hz range, which is associated with the entrainment frequency of heart rate coherence. That means when your heart and breath are entrained you see the system emit a pretty steady .1Hz.

Of interest is during the Work session, the lower frequencies associated with the sympathetic (fight-flight) nervous system also showed a spike. During that session I had 2 navigational “Lost” feelings and 13 “Wrong Place” feelings. The average recovery for both was around 18 seconds.

I can not draw any conclusion from this but it certainly gives an other dimension to the training in that I can see the shape of sessions on an EM level and connect that to the shape of the emotions as they occur while I navigate through my mental territory of the work session.
