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.Continue reading

Special Care Focus: Coronavirus, Technique for Reducing and Overcoming Fear
Welcome to a Special Care Focus regarding the Coronavirus – a technique for reducing and overcoming fear. In order for everyone around the world to participate in a synchronized Care Focus, beginning Wednesday, March 25th 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 or the Global Care Room. We will do this every Wednesday until the Coronavirus pandemic subsides. Thank you for joining with us. Share with those you feel it could help.
At times we send a special Care Focus to help lift the energetic field when a global event creates disruption and fear throughout the planet. As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic expands its footprint in over 100 countries, it’s obvious that fear and anxiety from uncertainty is robustly on the increase.
The Care Focus below is to compassionately help transform the intensity of personal fear into a more grounded attitude and feeling of managed concern which, unlike fear, connects us more deeply with our heart’s intuitive discernment. This provides clearer thinking, effective discernment, and much better choices through times of uncertainty and rapid changes.Continue reading
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.Continue reading
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.Continue reading
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.Continue reading
