It is one of the most talked about human physiological processes today – at research centers like the HeartMath Institute, in hospitals and science labs, and in the offices of educators, corporate leaders and sports managers. It has cropped up in professional journals, popular magazines and doctoral dissertations, and is frequently a featured topic in panel discussions, conferences and soon to be, perhaps, water-cooler conversation.Continue reading
What does HeartMath mean by the term, Heart-based living?
First, consider that for some people, the mind controls much of their lives, despite the intuitive nudging they constantly receive from the heart. The mind dictates their understanding, actions, reactions and decisions, based largely on learned response patterns, which seem to have a lock on their lives.Continue reading
Q. When the HeartMath Institute recommends that I do heart-focused breathing, what exactly is that? You can’t actually breathe with your heart. Right?
A. That’s right. You still breathe with your lungs. Heart-focused breathing is certainly about breathing, as the name implies, but HeartMath places great emphasis on the heart, and years of research says you should, too.Continue reading
Researchers say the anger, resentment and blame people hold on to, often for years, accounts for a lot of today’s health problems, and learning how to forgive could prove to be curative and preventative.Continue reading
Heart intelligence is the flow of awareness, understanding and intuition we experience when the mind and emotions are brought into coherent alignment with the heart. It can be activated through self-initiated practice, and the more we pay attention when we sense the heart is speaking to us or guiding us, the greater our ability to access this intelligence and guidance more frequently. Heart intelligence underlies cellular organization and guides and evolves organisms toward increased order, awareness and coherence of their bodies’ systems.Continue reading
One in every 88 children in the United States has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, according to a study published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta.Continue reading
Over the years, the HeartMath Institute has actively pursued a variety of avenues to inform people about its tools, programs, technology and the HeartMath System generally, especially through professional peer-reviewed journals and its own publishing services. Among recently published materials were a pair of articles this spring in an international medical journal and a new emWave® technology manual for professionals and parents who care for children with ADHD.Continue reading
Life unfolds in spite of our impatience. The misfortune of it is that because of our impatience we don't fully appreciate the joy and beauty of watching it unfold. And then there's all the stress and discontentment along the way.Continue reading
HeartMath is teaching thousands of personnel in the U.S. Armed Forces how to use its science-based tools and technology to self-regulate their emotions and build energy and resilience, whether they are awaiting deployment or are in theater.Continue reading
Thank you for your participation in the Global Coherence Initiative and helping to increase coherence, peace and harmony on our planet.
We have just entered the long awaited year 2012. While there are many prophecies from different cultures about 2012, the one that has received most attention is the end date of the Mayan calendar on December 21st, 2012. Most professional Mayan researchers (Webster, 2007, MacDonald, 2007) see this date as the culmination of a long cycle and the beginning of a new one. They agree that any predication of an apocalypse is a misinterpretation of Mayan history and culture.Continue reading
