Special Care Focus: Caring for Self; Caring for the World

Welcome to the Special Care Focus – Caring for Self; Caring for the World. In order for everyone around the world to participate in a synchronized Care Focus, on every Wednesday in October, November and December, 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.

Let’s start by connecting in the heart with everyone participating in the Care Focus and radiating love and appreciation to each other.

Helping the World

Please note there is a Special Care Focus on the Global Coherence App for the Israel-Hamas conflict that we invite everyone to participate in. Also, let’s remember to pause at times during the day to radiate our heart’s care and compassion to all the people suffering in Gaza and Israel and in the Russia-Ukraine war.

Global Coherence Initiative participants know that we’re here to serve as part of our personal and collective purpose. Yet, we can wonder how much of a difference are we making and how else can we help the world. Continue reading

Compassionate Latitude, Navigating Life With Our Hearts Leading the Way

In these times of uncertainty, the need to show compassionate latitude towards others and ourselves is of utmost importance. It carries with it an attitude of understanding that most people are doing the best they can based on their stress overload, anxiety, and the clouded thinking so many are experiencing. The need for more compassion and latitude is a profound necessity that emerges as we witness rising stress levels, global discontent, and ever-widening divides among individuals, communities and nations.

Heart Coherence Training May Reduce the Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease

In a recent report by the Alzheimer’s Association, it was revealed that over 6 million people in America are currently living with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). This devastating disease slowly erodes the minds of people we love and care for, but a ray of hope has emerged with a groundbreaking study that suggests heart coherence training developed by HeartMath Institute (HMI) may offer help to millions of individuals and potentially reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Heart coherence refers to a specific rhythmic pattern of heart rate variability (HRV), which is the variation in the time intervals between consecutive heartbeats – the beat-to-beat changes. To achieve heart rhythm coherence, individuals are guided to consciously slow their breathing while engaging in specific techniques developed by HeartMath. These techniques typically involve slow-paced heart-focused breathing while self-generating positive emotions such as calmness, gratitude, appreciation, or compassion.

Forgiveness is a personal decision we have to make in the quietness of our heart. At times our spirit gifts us with the inspiration to forgive and release energy blocks with each other and ourselves. These cause our heart to shut off which creates glitches and separation in our relationships.

Many people feel separation and lack of deeper connection with friends or family because, in the past, they were emotionally hurt by them. Learning to release these feelings of disharmony is a powerfully effective tool for personal peace and happiness. It’s understandable why we feel it’s appropriate to hold onto bitterness and anger because this habit has been handed down from generation to generation and passed off as normal.

Finding Our True Self and Life’s Purpose

Finding Our True Self and Life’s Purpose

In a world that can be chaotic, noisy, and full of distractions, it’s common to lose sight of who we truly are. Deep down inside ourselves, we all have a true self, a core essence that is unique and authentic. Finding our true self requires us to slow down, quiet our minds, and tune in to our heart’s inner voice.

One way to reconnect with our true self is to spend time in nature; it has a way of calming our minds and reminding us of the beauty and simplicity of life. Another way to find our true self is to engage in activities that bring us joy. This could be anything from writing or playing music to volunteering or helping others in need. When we do things that align with our true selves, we feel a sense of purpose and meaning.

Increasing Our Hope By Strengthening Our Care

Love generates hope, and hope is the window of future possibilities that serve the highest good for the whole.

Often, the light in our hope dims and is obscured by chaos and our own mental and emotional blocks, such as fear, judgment, prejudice, and separation. As we practice heart qualities like love, care, compassion, kindness, and cooperation, along with becoming more responsible for our personal energy expenditures, we can become architects of a new sense of hope and live according to our deeper values and higher quality choices.

As more people connect with their own heart’s intelligent guidance and practice the qualities of the heart, we can individually and collectively experience more peace, happiness, and satisfaction in our lives. This makes a valuable contribution to the whole and creates more hope for each other and planet earth.

Inner Stillness

Many spiritual cultures agree inner stillness creates an energetic environment for supporting our advancing consciousness that can unleash the transformational power of our love.

HeartMath tools and coherence technologies have been designed to monitor and facilitate easier access to stillness and its connection to the natural inner wisdom and guidance of our heart.

A coherent alignment between our spiritual heart, mind and emotions can lead to a new way of perceiving, thinking and relating. When practicing heart coherence, we experience a distinct quieting of the inner noise generated by the normal stream of unregulated mental and emotional activity. When you’re in a still coherent state, your nervous system is more aligned, your hormonal and immune systems are getting rebalanced, and your mind and emotions are connecting with more of your spirit’s practical guidance.

The Importance of Anchoring Your Insights Acting on Intuitive Inspirations and Insights Before the Initial Energy Fades

Global stress is on the rise. Waves of emotional turbulence modulate throughout the planet, resulting from our collective emotional responses to droughts, floods, hunger, world stage instability and on. These stress waves get powerfully stirred and amplified by the media, which sustains a collective uneasiness that can dampen how we think, feel, and respond to life’s interactions – especially on the emotional level. The internal turbulence caused by these waves of stress can be offset.

We can help with this by getting into a quiet space and asking our heart daily to draw to us inspirations, tools and common-sense insights for reducing our stress. We often get inspirations and intentions to use certain techniques we already know that could help prevent and reduce our stress load. Yet it is easy to fall short of grounding them via practice.

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.
