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.
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 #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.
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.
