We need to come together and have an open, honest conversation about this.”

We hear that often on the television or speaking circuits in the noisy ways of the world these days.

There are two problems with this statement:

As a whole, we are not very practiced or adept at “coming together” when there is an issue at hand that has strong opinions about it.

Secondly, there are very know how to have an “open and honest” conversation about complex attitudes and actions in our changing world. Even with good intentions to be open, and even thinking we “are honest”, we all bring multi-factored bearings to the issue at hand.

We need to be able to hear ourselves and the other.

Or we end up like this!

Yep! A tug of war.

There are professionals who have all kinds of input, however, and  renewed scientific and human behaviorist practices that can help move us humans forward in the art and necessity of wholesome communication.

Heart Math Institute and the studies of Doc Childre is one such place. When I studied with Barbara Marx Hubbard in Conscious Evolution, I found the practice of Heart Resonance, bringing the resonance of your own heartbeat in sync with the pulse of the world a fascinating endeavor.  I was also introduced to a radically different type of group resolution communication that focuses much more on listening and speaking uninterrupted while others listened, and doing this many times over for the same issue to be resolved, to see how individual consciousness could meld and become one unified consciousness that felt right to move forward on.

Radical, indeed! No debates, no shouting, no “going home with my ball.” There are some experiments with this in religious communities and organizations, but to my knowledge, I have not seen it hit the big time in News or Documentaries for the mass public.

We are still going about, making our noise, and hoping for some instances of connection.

 

HeartMath provides tools that connect us with the heart of “who we truly are” for living healthier, fulfilling lives and building a brighter future.

Since 1991, the HeartMath Institute has researched and developed reliable, scientifically based tools to help people bridge the connection between their hearts and minds, and deepen their connection with the hearts of others.

 

Practical solutions to help you lower your stress, revitalize energy and resilience and restore your mental, emotional and physical balance.

 

Heart connections with family, friends, co-workers – even pets – enrich our lives. Deepen your heart connections. Add flow and energy to your field environment.

 

Global Coherence Initiative unites people in heart-focused care and intention, facilitating a shift in global consciousness toward balance, cooperation and peace.

 

The mission of the HeartMath Institute is to help people bring their physical, mental and emotional systems into balanced alignment with their heart’s intuitive guidance. This unfolds the path for becoming heart-empowered individuals who choose the way of love, which they demonstrate through compassionate care for the well-being of themselves, others and Planet Earth.

 

Their Cause: Activate the heart of humanity

HeartMath Institute is committed to helping activate the heart of humanity. We believe that when we align and connect our hearts and minds and connect with others, we awaken the higher mental, emotional and spiritual capacities that frequently lie dormant. HMI aspires to always conduct our operations with passion, compassion and a heartfelt desire to transform lives. This is in keeping with our desire to help usher in an era of ever-expanding heart intelligence.
HeartMath’s research, training and technologies are aimed at guiding all of humanity toward realization of its full potential and to rely on the qualities of the heart in its role as caretaker of future generations and our planet.

In his writings, his Holiness, the Dalai Lama says, “…taking care of the planet is nothing special, nothing sacred, and nothing holy. It is something like taking care of our own house. We have no other planet or house except this one…we have no alternative, we have to take care of this home.”

“After all, the human being is a social animal,” I tell my friends.

“They have no need to study philosophy, these professional , complicated subjects,” he continues.  “By simply looking at these innocent animals, insects, ants, bees, etc, quite often I develop some kind of respect for them. How? Because they have no religion, no constitution, no police force, nothing. But they live in harmony through the natural law of existence or nature’s law or system”

“We human beings, what is wrong with us? he ponders. “We have such intelligence and human wisdom …so often used in a wrong way or direction. As a result, in a way, we are doing certain actions which essentially go against basic human nature….”

He calls love and compassion a universal religion…”if we look closely at human nature, affection is the key to a good heart. I think the mother is a symbol of compassion. Everyone has a seed of good heart.”

“Science and technology, together with human compassion with be constructive. Under the control of hatred, it will be destructive.”

The Dalai Lama began this topic by telling his audience that they may have come there that evening with some expectations, but that essentially “I’ve nothing to offer you.” He said he simply wanted to share some of his own experiences and views.

He said that from a certain viewpoint, religion is a bit of a luxury. “If you have religion, very good; even without religion you can survive and manage, but without human affection, we can’t survive.”

There is a Global Coherence Initiative, which is a science-based, co-creative project to unite people in heart focused care and intention. It aims to facilitate the shift in global consciousness from instability and discord to balance, cooperation and increasing peace (www.glcoherence.org).

One of GCI’s roles is to provide education and technology for increasing heart coherence in individuals and teams.

Increasing heart coherence creates an alignment of body, emotions, mind and spirit that increases balance and effectiveness in individual groups and contributing to global coherence. This, in my opinion, is a technique needed to catch the attention and commitment of today’s leaders, powers of state and corporate and political structures. It is simple to learn, it may not be easy to effect the desire for change.

But just look at today’s world view –torn, fragmented by wars, unthinkable genicide of innocents, the hungry and homeless, the scarred Earth. Someone — somewhere– has to start doing something different from the way we’re doing it now. And I don’t think that boils down to the differing political parties.

I think it has more to do with the individual heart and mind consciousness that will rise up in bigger numbers than the individual alone and change whole systems in doing so — and there is no better place to start than in the heart.

We are studying and practicing the simple technique  of Heart Resonance in our Birth 2012 on-line course with Barbara Marx Hubbard.  The course also offers a glimpse of other styles of leadership, reaching group agreement, not by the battle of wills and egos, but by truthfully searching for the highest good of the individual, community, country or world. I don’t think these methods have much chance of success and use in the world unless we sincerely do the heart work first and are willing to commit to this for the good of humankind.

Can anyone watch the news these days and not have their heart tugged on a little bit or a lot. There’s too much that goes against nature going on in our world, and it would be a shift, indeed, if each human looked into their own heart and soul and discovered what it is that would be natural and in harmony (like the birds and the bees) for them to do — in big or little ways — that will increase the amount of goodness in the world on a daily basis.

The attitude of “I can’t do anything about it” is just not viable today in our world.

The technique of Heart Coherence was developed the Institute of Heart Math by Doc Childre. It is a simple, yet powerful technique to release stress, bring more coherence into your heart rhythms and build resilience. Once you’ve learned it, the technique only takes a minute to do and you can do it anywhere, anytime.

By the way, this is just not a “do-gooder” ideal. Simply by incorporating this as part of your life and prayer practice, the Institute has demonstrated by scientific tests, that you are creating goodness and health in your own body. Your own self-healing   powers (which many of us do not know we have; the birds and the bees know it!) will activate on many levels.

Physically, you may heal a wound, unblock a blockage, or intuitively know who you want to bring your treatment needs to; mentally, you may lighten up and find paths to uncomplicate complicated issues you wrestle with; spiritually, you will, for certain, develop a taste for this compassion that the Dalai Lama says is so necessary. And you will find a sense of connectness to others that most likely did not exist before.

I intend to bring Heart Resonance into my teaching workshops in the fall and spread its availability to learn in my little portion of this Earth.

This is science and technology with compassion and it works.  I can do my little part in nature to encourage harmony and love.  These qualities do need to be birthed into our world in ever increasing numbers. Our planet and its people are depending upon it.
