Making Life’s Deepest Connection

When a grandmother opens the door and is surprised to find her grandkids standing on her doorstep, all eyes fill with love and light. It reminds us of the timeless, heartfelt connections possible in human relationships.

When human beings connect in this way, it is a form of what is called social coherence, one of the deepest resonate emotions we can feel.

There are times in each of our lives when we are likely to experience such strong, unconditional connections. It may happen with loved ones, friends or in a meeting at which everyone shares similar interests and objectives. When people, especially groups of people are able to get in sync, or on the same wavelength, everyone who is present feels it.

HeartMath’s scientists have focused especially on oak and redwood trees as they seek answers to a number of questions.

A Field View of Reality to Explain Human Interconnectedness

Is it true the physical world we see with our eyes is the essence or nature of reality? For much of human history, this is what scientists and most people around the world have believed. More recently, however, another view of reality has emerged, one the authors of HeartMath’s new e-book, the Science of Interconnectivity, † contrast with the historic view.

“Classical physics conceived of reality as elementary building blocks made up of solid objects, separated by empty space,” the authors explain. “This view continues to be most people’s view of reality, including scientists.”

When the Heart Leads to Wise Reasoning

Inner Dignity: Yours to Nurture

A water carrier in a desert land who is always pleasant and never brash; a working mother who never complains. What is it in our makeup that drives us to persevere in virtually any circumstance? What makes us get up, dust ourselves off and move forward regardless of failure, disappointment and a host of other emotions that might seem to otherwise drag us down? It’s our inner dignity that is the primary motivator for these self-empowered actions.
