The Spiritual Heart, A Scientific Inquiry

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.

Ease – An Active, Calm Way of Being

The state of ease is a highly regenerative state that helps us flow more easily through challenges and builds our resilience capacity. It is not merely a state of relaxation. It is characterized by a balance between the mind and emotions, which allows us to access a sense of inner stillness and make intelligent choices while on the move.

Patience, A Stress Preventer Overlooked

Patience, A Stress Preventer Overlooked

Most all of us have struggled with impatience from time to time. Patience supports our ability to manage our energies from a state of ease, especially when things don’t move to suit our mind’s pace. The speed of change can make life seem like it’s on fast-forward which can amplify impatience, irritation, and frustration. These assumed small energy leaks often turn into blockbuster energy deficits over time, if we don’t reset and transform them into patience, resilience, and flow.

Rushed, impatient energy diffuses our capacity for favorable outcomes. When we push energy, this cancels the experience of flow and creates hiccups in our intentions. It’s our mind that tends to rush energy; our heart chooses balance, rhythm, and flow. This cooperation reduces resistance and increases our desired outcomes with much less stress and the energy deficit that accompanies it.

Heart-Based Living

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.

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.

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.

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.

Measuring Workplace Stress – In A New Way

Researchers studying the effects of stress on employees undertook a new approach in their research to improve upon what they said may be outdated and obsolete tools for evaluating workplace stress. As a result, they said, some of their findings were "astonishing."

The researchers, Adrian Low of the Hong Kong Association of Psychology, and study advisor HeartMath Institute Director of Research Dr. Rollin McCraty, used HeartMath’s emWave® Pro Plus as a quantitative assessment tool for the study. (Click this link to read the entire study: Emerging Dynamics of Workplace Stress of Employees in a Large Organization in Hong Kong.)
