Currently, an estimated 1 billion people – that’s a little over 1 in 7 – are overweight, and at least 300 million of them are classified as clinically obese, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported. Decades of monitoring the weight of the world clearly show the number of overweight and obese people is rising fast and the crisis is as severe in many parts of the world among children and adolescents ages of 2-19 as it is among adults.Continue reading
Much has happened since my last GCI commentary. New Compassion Operatives are joining the GCI community from around the world and has surpassed 17,000. In the research aspect of GCI, we have been testing a new sensor design since June 2009. Some of the members have noticed the brighter colors in our spectrogram data, which are due to the higher sensitivity of the sensor. The new sensor utilizes magnetic antennas and an induction coil with a low noise amplifier. The advantage of this new sensor is the compact design. Also ultra low frequencies, called geomagnetic pulsations, from 1 to 1,000 hertz can now be detected by the sensor.Continue reading
Each individual’s thoughts, attitudes and emotions emit energetic fields. These individual field environments not only affect you, your health and perspective on life, they also can influence your relationships and experiences in your social field environments as you interact with people, or even if you are merely in the same room with other people. Can we change our individual, social, and even planetary environments and create the one in which we choose to live? We can.Continue reading
In this commentary I would like to focus on this question: Is there a connection between solar activity, geomagnetic storms and the Schumann resonances and human health and behavior?
In the last commentary, I discussed the Schumann resonances. Like a tuning fork, the earth has natural sound frequencies and these are called Schumann resonances. There are about 1000 lightning storms at any given moment worldwide, which excite the cavity. These resonances form in the conductive ionosphere which acts as a wave-guide. The limited dimensions of the earth cause this wave-guide to act as a resonant cavity for electromagnetic (EM) waves in what are extremely low frequencies bands (see figure below).Continue reading
Researchers at the HeartMath Institute announced recently the results of a study in which children in 19 preschools within the Salt Lake City School District participated in the Early HeartSmarts program. Click here to review abstract and research paper.
Earlier this year the HMI newsletter carried a story about the Salt Lake City schools program and study, Facilitating Emotional Self-Regulation in Preschool Children: Efficacy of the Early HeartSmarts Program in Promoting Social, Emotional, and Cognitive Development. The study's purpose was to determine the effectiveness of Early HeartSmarts (EHS) in helping teachers "to guide and support young children in learning emotional self-regulation and key age-appropriate socio-emotional competencies, with the goal of facilitating their emotional, social and cognitive development."Continue reading
The findings are in from a weight-loss pilot program developed by HeartMath in which volunteers self-administered a six-week regimen that incorporated HeartMath tools and the emWave® technology.Continue reading
Psychologists once maintained that emotions were purely mental expressions generated by the brain alone. We now know this is not true. Emotions have as much to do with the heart and body as they do with the brain. Of all your body’s organs, it is the heart, a growing number of scientists theorize, that plays perhaps the most important role in our emotional experience. What we experience as an emotion is the result of the brain, heart, and body acting in concert.Continue reading
First and foremost I want to thank all of you for providing so much insightful feedback to my last commentary. Have you heard, our global coherence community now has over 13,000 GCI Ambassadors?
Two major events have happened since my last update: A 5.8-magnitude earthquake in Italy claimed the lives of nearly 300 people and left 29,000 homeless; and the swine flu outbreak, which had reached 2,500 confirmed cases worldwide as of May 8 and resulted in 44 deaths – 42 in Mexico and two in the U.S. – threatened for a time to become a pandemic, creating a great deal of fear and anxiety.Continue reading
People from many places and walks of life have shared stories with the HeartMath Institute over the years about their emWave® experiences. Each one reinforces IHM’s commitment to its mission of helping to establish heart-based living and global coherence by inspiring people to connect with the intelligence and guidance of their own hearts.Continue reading
Those who’ve followed the Global Coherence Initiative since its launch in summer 2008 know that while much remains to be done in the years ahead, a great deal already has been accomplished in the project’s infancy. Early indications are that a great number of people around the world are committed to planetary harmony and healing.Continue reading
