Redirecting Planetary Consciousness Towards Harmonious Solutions: Experiencing Change With More Compassionate Care, Personal Balance and Resilience

You are invited to attend the first virtual HeartMath Institute Global Coherence Event, Redirecting Planetary Consciousness Towards Harmonious Solutions: Experiencing Change With More Compassionate Care, Personal Balance and Resilience. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to present the 9th annual HeartMath/Global Coherence event online – traditionally done in Mexico.

This uplifting, interactive, virtual event will take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 26, 27 and 28, 2021. Each day is 4½ hours long – from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Pacific Daylight Time.

HeartMath leaders and special guest presenters will discuss and unfold questions like these: What does intentionally redirecting planetary consciousness mean? Why is experiencing the change of compassionate care, personal balance and resilience so meaningful? Why is it so important during these times of planetary changes? What is the new norm?

Special Care Focus: Broadcast Love

Welcome to the Special Care Focus – Broadcast Love. In order for everyone around the world to participate in a synchronized Care Focus, on Wednesday, November 18th, we have chosen three convenient times: 4 a.m., 12:00 p.m. (noon), and 8 p.m. Pacific Time (GMT/UTC minus 8 hours)*.

Broadcast Love

With the polarizing politics going on in many countries and the global resurgence of the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to broadcast love, compassion and calm into the global energetic field.

Love is the core heart frequency that unifies and lifts people’s perceptions above separation. When our heart, mind and emotions are in alignment and not in conflict with each other, this makes it easier to sense our intuitive heart’s direction for effective choices and guidance.

There are many personal and collective benefits from the practice of intentionally radiating love.

Message from HeartMath Team

Here is an uplifting photo of Boulder Creek Volunteer Fire Department (BCFD) firefighters that was posted on Facebook on the morning of August 24th after a light rain came in, which is very unusual for Boulder Creek in the summer, that allowed them to get ahead of the fire. They called this the BCFD "Rain Dance!"

Message from HeartMath Team

Both the HeartMath Institute and HeartMath LLC had to evacuate our office buildings and homes in the beautiful redwood mountains of Boulder Creek, California late in the evening on Tuesday, August 18th due to wildfires.

All HeartMath staff are safe and are sheltering with family, friends, in motels or temporary rental homes. Our buildings are still standing due to the heroic efforts of the firefighters. Yet, the fires are not out, and we so appreciate the continued outpouring of heart being sent from so many of you – our members, clients, certified professionals and all those we work with. We have received comments from around the world filled with love and care.

Special Care Focus: Taking Care of Yourself and Each Other

Welcome to the Special Care Focus – Taking Care of Yourself and Each Other. In order for everyone around the world to participate in a synchronized Care Focus, on Wednesday, August 5th, we have chosen three convenient times: 4 a.m., 12:00 p.m. (noon), and 8 p.m. Pacific Time (GMT/UTC minus 7 hours)*. Please join with others on the Global Coherence App. We will do a special care focus every Wednesday until the Coronavirus pandemic subsides. Thank you for joining with us.

Taking Care of Yourself and Each Other

We won’t repeat the latest news on the coronavirus here, as most of us know that while it’s declining or under control in many countries, it’s spreading faster than ever in other countries. Doctors and nurses are overwhelmed and exhausted, hospitals are running short on ICUs and supplies, and stress levels are high.

Many of us have a hard time with face masks or find ourselves in situations that make it difficult to maintain social distancing. It’s understandably challenging when precautions are inconvenient and a lockdown affects jobs and families. Still, it would be helpful for the wholeness if we found it in our hearts to practice safety precautions to help prevent others from getting infected. Shelter at home restrictions and limiting social gatherings exacerbate loneliness, anxiety and depression. A lift in spirit and resilience can be renewed with the practice of radiating love and compassion for a minute or so throughout the day (each time we think of it). Doing this for a week can help significantly. Also, many of you have already experienced the lift that comes from the practice of doing something kind for another.

Special Care Focus #4: Awakening the Heart of Humanity

Welcome to a Special Care Focus #4 – Awakening the Heart of Humanity. In order for everyone around the world to participate in a synchronized Care Focus, on Wednesday June 17th we have chosen three convenient times: 4 a.m., 12:00 p.m. (noon), and 8 p.m. Pacific Time (GMT/UTC minus 7 hours)*. Please join with others on the Global Coherence App. We will do a special care focus every Wednesday until the Coronavirus pandemic subsides. Our next special care focus we will be holding will focus on sending collective heart to the social injustices. Thank you for joining with us.

As countries re-open from sheltering at home, people are wondering what will be the new normal? Currently there is much social unrest – from people refusing to abide by re-opening restrictions such as social distancing to the protest demonstrations engulfing US cities, and around the world. There are many levels of awareness and perceptions throughout collective humanity. Our minds may be different based on beliefs, upbringing and life situations, but our hearts can find harmony with each other in a shared existence, if we desire this. It’s in the heart that we access the core qualities of love, compassion, care, kindness, forgiveness and appreciation that lift us above separation, judgment and blame. More people than ever have been experiencing and expressing an abundance of these enriched heart qualities over the past few months, recognizing this is who we truly are and not wanting to go back to the old normal.

Heart-Based Living

What does HeartMath mean by the term, Heart-Based Living?

Heart-Based Living is only a convenient reference term which implies the practice of qualifying our thoughts, feelings and actions through our heart for more effective choices and guidance. Some people prefer the terms, Heart-Focused Living, or Heart-Centered Living. All of these terms suit the purpose – it’s just a matter of individual choice.

The important point is that many people are sharing that they are being encouraged more to "follow their heart" as a result of practicing Heart-Based living.

Documentary Explores the Power of Heart Intention in Musical Performance

The conductor abruptly waves, signaling the orchestra to stop playing. "People, please," she says, "when you play this piece, try to imagine, feel the emotion this great composer intended. Play each and every note from the heart. Again, from the beginning."

Words to that effect have been uttered by thousands of conductors and music instructors through the centuries. They are not words with which Dr. Kathleen Riley of California would disagree. The concepts they suggest are integral to her unique approach to helping musicians and clients in all professions achieve optimal performance and overcome related anxieties.

The ‘Appreciation’ in Awe

From Thanksgiving through January many people report feeling a lift from an increased sense of appreciation and gratitude, while sometimes mixed with a sense of awe. The experience of awe often happens when our focused appreciation hits a tipping point.

We don’t have to wait for this time of year to increase our appreciation and awe and the mental, emotional and physical health benefits. We just have to remember to do it – and how intelligent it is to do so. Genuine appreciation is one of the easiest ways to release our heart energy – which is a missing piece in why much of the world can’t seem to get along with each other. Our individual contributions can eventually change this picture. View appreciation as an application of free health and wellbeing for all concerned.

The Cares of the World – How to Transform Your Overcare into Balanced Care

The world needs our care now more than ever, and these days there is so much to care for – a pet, work, or our family, health and the planet. But, how do we deeply care without depleting our energy? What does it really mean to have balanced care? What happens when that care turns to overcare – when we excessively worry, over-identify or have anxiety about the object of our care? Overcare is easy to fall into because of its stealthy way of making us feel that we are caring more when worry is added. This is not the case.
