May 21, 2024 Episode #76 Guest: Judith Orloff, M.D.

The world can feel so uncertain these days. The stress can leave us drained, worried, or even hopeless. But what if there is a healthier way to navigate through this?

This episode explores the power of empathy and compassion with Dr. Judith Orloff, a bestselling author and UCLA psychiatrist. Her book, "The Genius of Empathy," explains how cultivating these heart qualities isn’t just noble, it’s a smart way to process our challenges.

Judith addresses important questions like how can we begin to feel empathy for someone if we don’t like them. She and our host Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., talk about the science of why empathy and compassion offer powerful healing effects and are regenerative for you, the people you interact with, as well as the greater world.

Many people listening will appreciate Judith and Deborah for addressing the question, how can we learn to have empathy without absorbing someone else’s pain?

They also discuss how empathy and compassion work in tandem to combat polarization and blame. Judith and Deborah agree, it’s empathy and compassion that will finally bridge our societal divides and create real solutions. Hear what they say about this.

How to Love the Unlovable

Expanding on love as a transformative power, Matt, and our host, Deborah Rozman, talk about how pain and suffering are a call for love and some of the intricacies of choosing love. They help us understand how we can still put love and care into action even when we don’t like or don’t agree with someone or something.

Could the Heart Be the Access Point for Intuition?

February 21, 2023 Episode #61 Guest: Neale Donald Walsch

What’s the difference between the heart and the soul? Is the heart the coupling between our human self and our soul self?  

In this episode, our guest Neale Donald Walsch, globally acclaimed speaker and best-selling author of the Conversations with God book series, joins us for an extraordinary conversation about the heart. Neale and our host, Deborah Rozman, explore questions such as what’s the difference between the heart and the soul? Is the heart the coupling between our human self and our soul self?

Neale describes people as 3-part beings; the mind, the body and the soul. However, in this exploration, Neale and Deborah discuss the heart as part of this equation and the conversation expands our understanding to include the energetic or spiritual heart – making us all 4-part beings. The heart is how we connect with something greater than ourselves.

(more…)Read more

As science is trying to better understand this connection, what we do know is that the body is a kind of receiver of energetic information. And at the core, it is the heart that is helping us to understand and decode the information we receive energetically – which we call the heart’s intuitive guidance. Since the heart is also capable of broadcasting energetic information, the question is asked, what information are we broadcasting and to whom?

We broadcast our feelings and emotions through the heart’s energetic field. That’s how we pick up on each other’s vibes (vibrations). We broadcast higher heart feelings such as love, care, compassion and kindness, as well as feelings of heartache, anxiety, fear, resentment, etc.

To get our heart and mind aligned and receive intuitive guidance from soul/spirit/God, do we have to choose to open our heart, to love and care and have compassion for each other? This question is discussed.

The conversation wraps up with an exercise and a heart meditation we can each use to invite our mind to align more deeply with our heart and intuitive guidance.

In this episode, Dr. Jorina Elbers, Pediatric Neurologist, Trauma and Parenting Specialists, and Program Director for the Trauma Recovery Project at the HeartMath Institute, shares with host Deborah Rozman how she and her husband Owen have found that by focusing first on their own emotional self-regulation then tuning to their heart for intuitive direction, their communications with their boys has become much more effective.

Jorina also shares a couple of powerful heart tools she uses to manage her personal energy and shift into a heart coherent place which enables her to reduce over-reacting to their undesirable behaviors. She says many parents are told to just breathe to avoid reacting, however if we don’t add heart coherence to a situation, we often end up lecturing a child which shuts down communication. Learning how to shift into heart coherence is key for increasing a parent’s or grandparent’s ability to respond in a way that empowers them in adverse situations – and kids do take notice.

Jorina and Deborah discuss how we can allow children to experience intense emotions in a healthy way. Rather than scolding their behavior, using heart-directed practices can validate their emotions, which helps to defuse their energy and allows for a deeper heart connection and communication to unfold – uncovering what’s really going on.

Jorina says, "When we elevate our personal energy first, get into a heart coherent space, we can then also help our kids to elevate their energy. When you have kids and parents working together in this way, the connection and communication can be very deep and rewarding."

The episode closes with a guided heart meditation to help us energize our commitment to elevate our own energy first and better help our children.

Finding Fulfillment in a Purpose Larger Than Yourself

December 13, 2022 Episode #59 Guest: Lynne Twist

What is fulfillment and how do we find it and nurture it?

In this episode, Lynne Twist joins host Deborah Rozman to discuss how having a purpose larger than yourself is what leads to deep fulfillment. Lynne says that when we get "off our self-centered focus, we open to new possibilities" that reward us.

We’re in a time when many societal structures and ways of thinking and being are giving way to something new and as yet unformed, which can leave us feeling uncertain, without direction. In her new book, Finding Fulfillment in a Purpose Larger than Yourself, Lynne explains why it’s so important that we listen deeply to our hearts to find and unfold our larger purpose.

Lynne is a recognized global visionary, who has dedicated her life to serving a greater good. She has been an advisor to the Desmond Tutu Foundation and is the recipient of the prestigious "Woman of Distinction’’ award from the United Nations. She helped found the World Hunger Project and the Pachamama Alliance. She sees the time we’re in now as a re-birthing process for humanity and a grand opportunity to find a new vision and purpose in serving a greater whole.

Lynne and Deborah talk about why vision and purpose are essential for personal fulfillment. Their conversation explores the difference between taking a ‘heart-stand’ that unifies people rather than a "mind stance" that separates. Lynne explains how holding a fixed position on issues is what creates judgments and polarization, blocking our ability to see or consider other perspectives.

(more…)Read more

Deborah and Lynne offer hopeful insights and next steps in finding or unfolding a larger purpose. Listening to and following the heart’s inclusive guidance is what will ultimately bring people together, leading to solutions that serve the greater good, and that is love.

Amplifying Gratitude

November 15, 2022 Episode #58 Guest: Jacqueline Way

Gratitude is an amplifier of heart energy and one of the quickest ways to offset stress and lift our mood. With the overwhelming stress so many people are experiencing, gratitude and appreciation count more than ever right now. The greater our capacity for genuine gratitude and appreciation, the deeper the connection to our heart – which is where intuitive guidance, inspiration and new possibilities emerge.

In this episode, Jacqueline Way, founder of 365give, a nonprofit inspired by her discovery of the power of gratitude, joins Deborah Rozman to talk about "Change the World 1 Give, 1 Day at a Time." An adoptive mother of three, Jacqueline shares her inspiring story about how waking up to the power of gratitude moved her to do a yearlong experiment with her young son to give something back to the world every day for an entire year.

Jacqueline and Deborah discuss how gratitude and appreciation aren’t just nice gestures, but are powerful emotions that activate the brain’s reward pathways, feel-good hormones and endorphins that can greatly improve our outlook on life. They also share how scientists have been studying the "Helper’s High" that comes from giving gratitude. When we do something authentic and meaningful for others, it opens our heart and provides us with uplift, spirit renewal and health benefits.

(more…)Read more

The HeartMath research lab also discovered that when we sincerely feel gratitude or appreciation for family, friends, nature, or the convenient things in life, a profound change occurs in our heart rhythms. They become more synchronized and coherent, which increases mental clarity, resilience and well-being needed for discernment and better choices, especially in today’s stressful environment.

Jacqueline and Deborah provide simple suggestions on how each of us can amplify gratitude and appreciation in our own lives to quickly uplift our thoughts, feelings and outlook.

The episode closes with beautiful heart meditation to amplify gratitude and appreciation to see new possibilities.

Become a Heart Citizen Scientist

October 18, 2022 Episode #57 Guest: Dillon Brooks

Many Gen Z’s and millennials have lost trust in humanity and hope for the future. Most will tell you they’re stressed much of the time, according to a Deloitte 2022 survey. Driving their stress are feelings of being financially insecure and mentally burned out, fears over climate change, and world unrest.

In this episode, Dillon Brooks, a TikTok channel creator who has established a sizable community for Gen Z’s and millennials called "Citizen Scientists," and our host, Deborah Rozman, discuss what becoming a citizen scientist means and why it’s important for empowerment and creating the positive change we desire personally and collectively.

Dillon and Deborah discuss heart intelligence, its power to transform and lift perception, and why Dillon believes this is, in part, what the younger population is searching for.

(more…)Read more

After struggling with health challenges and seeing how many systems are failing people, Dillon started a journey of learning and becoming what he calls a "citizen scientist." As a citizen scientist, rather than listening to handed-down dogma, you are empowering yourself to research, experiment, listen to your heart, and learn what really works for you.

Dillon appreciates how HeartMath® research and techniques have challenged outdated mindsets about the heart, mind, and emotions. HeartMath shows how these systems can work together to create lasting behavior change and a life that is aligned with purpose.

Gen Z’s and millennials need to connect more deeply to their own heart’s direction, according to Dillon, and become citizen scientists in all aspects of their lives: diet, exercise, sleep, stress management, mental health, and spiritual growth.

The insightful episode closes with a heart meditation on becoming a heart citizen scientist of your life and empowering your commitments.

The Heart‑to‑Heart Connection Between People and Pets

September 20, 2022 Episode #56 Guest: Dr. Allen Schoen

Some of our deepest heart connections are with our pets. Whether it’s a dog, cat, bird, hamster, or another animal, the love and care we exchange with our pets is supportive and healing for us and them. This undeniable energetic heart exchange with pets is the focus of this episode.

In this episode, Dr. Allen Schoen, a pioneer of holistic veterinary medicine and recognized as one of the most influential veterinarians worldwide for introducing an integrative approach to veterinary medicine, and our host, Deborah Rozman, explore this amazing energetic heart connection between people and pets. The therapeutic benefits associated with human-pet bonding aren’t new. In fact, research has shown this powerful bond can help decrease stress, regulate breathing, lower blood pressure, and release oxytocin – a hormone associated with love.

Dr. Schoen’s research exploring the heart-to-heart connection of the human-pet bond suggests that without the healing power of the love of animals that uplifts people’s lives, the world would be an even more stressed-out place. Animal lovers will enjoy hearing about the heart-rhythm synchronization that happens when people send love to their pets. Deborah explains these findings that come out of the HeartMath Institute.

(more…)Read more

Dr. Schoen also talks about Transpecies Field Theory: An energetic field created by the thoughts and emotions of humans and animals interacting with each other. This episode will leave you with a deeper appreciation and understanding of how we benefit energetically from the love we share with pets and how this can contribute to a healthier, happier, more conscious, and harmonious world.

The episode closes with a heart meditation on how our collective heart energy can help increase understanding and cooperation between humans and our animal friends.

The Power of Collective Intention

August 16, 2022 Episode #55 Guest: Lynne McTaggart

At this time in history, there is an amazing opportunity for groups of people to harness the power collective intention to create sustainable change that can help humanity and our planet.

In this episode award-winning journalist and author, Lynne McTaggart and our host, Deborah Rozman, talk about collective intention and Lynne’s research in this area.

Currently, society is mired in many outdated paradigms that no longer fit today’s world. Many societal structures are falling apart, polarization between groups and inflamed biases have become more intense. The power of collective intention is not a new concept, yet we are reminded through examples that Lynne shares of how small groups throughout history have created significant changes that helped to improve and heal people’s lives.

Lynne shares her transformative results from bringing small groups of people with different beliefs and opposing views together to hear each other more deeply and to focus on an altruistic collective intention they all can agree on. Based on her research and HeartMath Institute’s research on collective heart coherence, Deborah and Lynne discuss how the new paradigms needed now for humanity to learn to get along with each other could very well come from small groups empowering a collective altruistic intention.

The Connection Between Heart and Spirit

July 19, 2022 Episode #54 Guest: Agapi Stassinopoulos

Spirit can mean different things to people. Some refer to their Spirit as their higher self, soul, or their connection with source.

The Value of Pause for Creating Flow and Inner Balance

August 21, 2018 Episode #7 Guest: Jeff Goelitz

May 15, 2018 Episode #4 Guest: Howard Martin

As a former rock-and-roll drummer, Howard has a keen awareness of rhythms and how all aspects of life have different rhythms. We experience them in dance and music, we observe them in the ocean’s tides and changing seasons – and course we live by our heart’s rhythm. Right now many people are enjoying the changing rhythm of nature moving into spring weather after a long winter. We can find rhythms in just about everything within us and outside of us.

Learning how to shift our inner rhythms can help life feel a lot less stressful and more balanced. Connecting with our inner heart rhythm helps us sense right timing and enjoy increased care and sensitivity in our relationships and engagements with life.

During this 30-minute live call, special guest Howard Martin, Executive Vice President of HeartMath Inc., talk about how we can tune into the inner rhythm of daily life and find more flow. You’ll learn suggested ways to prevent the impatience of the mind from overriding the sensitive and intuitive whispers of your heart’s direction.
