Songs have been sung and poems have been written since time immemorial spouting the beauty and the feeling of love. But how do we create love? Is there a special way? Scientifically speaking, the answer is yes, at least according to the Institute of Heart Math established by Dr. Lew Childre back in 1991.
Childre’s mission and the focus of his research developed through Heart Math is to demonstrate how essential the heart is to human health, success and fulfillment. Known for its specific techniques that target the importance of emotional self-management, Heart Math is not a new phenomenon. Over the course of the last 15 years, many respected publications, such as the Harvard Business Review and the American Journal of Cardiology, have published and supported Heart Math’s findings.
Apart from the romantic poets of the world who have always known the power of love, for the rest of us it is important to note that when it comes to overall health and well-being, the healthy heart is an even more important organ than the brain.
We may think clearly with our brains, but it is with our hearts that emotions flow and positive feelings provide an amazing vitality to human health and creativity.
By practicing a few exercises that only take a few minutes and can be performed by anyone anywhere, Heart Math is the number one combatant in the war against the greatest threat to modern health; namely, stress. The business world learns quickly and many companies offer yoga lessons and stress seminars as part of their employee benefit package.
The rhythm of heartbeats is the key to measuring the patterns of the beats, which correspond to a particular emotional state. This rhythm can change by allowing your thoughts to return to a positive emotion.
So have a heart, be happy…and love.
Changing your world starts with you.
