Special Care Focus: Appreciating Our Earth – Earth Day 2021

Welcome to Appreciating Our Earth Care Focus – Earth Day 2021. In order for everyone around the world to participate in the synchronized Care Focus, April 22nd, we have chosen three convenient times: 4 a.m., 12 p.m. (noon), and 8 p.m. Pacific Time (GMT/UTC minus 7 hours)*. Please join with others on the Global Coherence App. Thank you for joining with us.

April 22nd is Earth Day. Over the past half century there have been positive environmental milestones to celebrate, yet the disruptive effects of global climate change are on the increase. Rising sea levels, animals becoming extinct, loss of rain forests, environmental pollution, and more severe weather events are of great concern. Nations haven’t been able to address these challenges for humanity and for Earth.

The Spiritual Heart, A Scientific Inquiry

The Spiritual Heart, A Scientific Inquiry

In her article, The Spiritual Heart, Micheline Anderson applies HeartMath science to a correlation of spiritual practices. She suggests that the heart may be the temple of the soul, and that the related emotional keys of spiritual aspiration reflect increased longevity and wellness. Given the historical association between the metaphorical qualities of the heart and the many spiritual practices throughout history, there is increasing evidence that substantiates physical well-being with identification and appeal to a transcendent being, including our personal and collective higher self.

Ease - An Active, Calm Way of Being

Ease – An Active, Calm Way of Being

The state of ease is a highly regenerative state that helps us flow more easily through challenges and builds our resilience capacity. It is not merely a state of relaxation. It is characterized by a balance between the mind and emotions, which allows us to access a sense of inner stillness and make intelligent choices while on the move.

Patience, A Stress Preventer Overlooked

Patience, A Stress Preventer Overlooked

Most all of us have struggled with impatience from time to time. Patience supports our ability to manage our energies from a state of ease, especially when things don’t move to suit our mind’s pace. The speed of change can make life seem like it’s on fast-forward which can amplify impatience, irritation, and frustration. These assumed small energy leaks often turn into blockbuster energy deficits over time, if we don’t reset and transform them into patience, resilience, and flow.

Rushed, impatient energy diffuses our capacity for favorable outcomes. When we push energy, this cancels the experience of flow and creates hiccups in our intentions. It’s our mind that tends to rush energy; our heart chooses balance, rhythm, and flow. This cooperation reduces resistance and increases our desired outcomes with much less stress and the energy deficit that accompanies it.

Strengthening the Vibration of Unity and Cooperation

As 2021 unfolds, extremism is impacting the US and other countries, while the coronavirus continues to surge through the world – separating loved ones, taking lives, creating economic hardships and unbending inconveniences. In addition, hunger, migration, and climate change are affecting millions of people. These and many more challenges are humbling, while also nudging us to realize we finally have to cooperate and care more to find solutions.

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, January 27th, 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)*. 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.

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.

Today, let’s radiate love and compassion with the intention to help heal the separations, judgments and divisiveness that are creating fear, anger, and violence. See people and leaders with different beliefs coming together and cooperating to find new solutions.

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.
