      >Activating The Heart’s Intelligence by Howard Martin
      >Many people would probably agree that a “quickening” is taking place in
      >our world. The speed of change is accelerating creating both chaos and
      >coherence. Polarization in values, politics, policy and world views have
      >become increasingly obvious. Many problems ranging from economic
      >inequities to environmental concerns seem to be reaching a tipping point
      >while simultaneously a new intelligence appears to be in a pivotal
      >birthing stage.
      >In our more reflective moments this quickening often evokes important
      >questions. How do we fully participate in this transformation, make
      >meaningful contributions and ride this wave of change with poise and
      >grace? For me the answers lie not in the mind alone but rather are found
      >in the core of our hearts.
      >This can sound comfortably philosophical but from the HeartMath
      >perspective we take it quite literally. To us it’s business—the business
      >of becoming energetic engineers capable of actualizing and applying a new,
      >intuitive band-width. Our research and the research of others have
      >confirmed that the heart is not just a muscle. It’s also a sensory organ
      >and a sophisticated information processing center. The heart actually has
      >its own nervous system which gives it the ability to sense, learn,
      >remember and make functional decisions independent of the brain. In fact
      >the heart sends powerful messages to the brain and the rest of the body in
      >four different ways—neurologically, bio-physically, hormonally and
      >energetically. These messages are more than biological; they give us an
      >expanded awareness.
      >The intuitive intelligence of the heart allows us to perceive differently.
      >We become more aware of thoughts, moods and reactions and perceive new
      >options in how to respond to situations in the moment. Life seems less
      >stressful. Your problems don't magically go away, but they don't have as
      >much impact on you. Your thought patterns and inner dialog become more
      >allowing, hopeful and open ended. Life doesn't feel so boxed in and
      >limited. You become more creative and can more easily find solutions to
      >challenges. It's not that there are fewer obstacles, but that you develop
      >more adaptability and resiliency. Things get simpler.
      >Most importantly it helps you get on to yourself and see where the
      >energetic blocks to growth reside. Armed with the heart’s intelligence you
      >have a greater ability to finalize much of the important but unfinished
      >work on yourself. Once this work is done you become capable of
      >understanding and contributing to the world even more effectively and
      >dynamically. Through the power of the heart we can take our next steps in
      >becoming the highly conscious people we want to be and that the world so
      >desperately needs.
      >We’ll explore all of this and a lot more at The Great Re-thinking
      >Conference in Bath. I’ll use advanced technology to demonstrate real-time
      >heart/brain communication. We’ll take a look at a key application of the
      >heart’s intelligence—gaining mastery over our emotions; the conduit for
      >the expression of spirit and I’ll offer heart-centric approaches to
      >achieving your next level of personal fulfillment. I promise above all to
      >make it fun. Hope to see you there.
      >"Doc Childre (founder of the HeartMath Institute) realized that the heart
      >doesn’t exert its uplifting influence on body, mind, and spirit entirely
      >on autopilot: It’s helped by conscious intention. He and his researchers
      >discovered that, just as imaging holding your hands in front of a campfire
      >causes your palms to measurably heat up, so creating a mental image of the
      >heart glowing with warmth produces a distinct physiological effect—in this
      >case, one that seems to correlate with feelings of calm and
      >lovingkindness. Simply giving the heart your full attention, that is,
      >seems to produce physiological patterns that correlate with compassion
      >itself. HeartMath researchers have noted that these “coherent” patterns of
      >heart-rate variability are associated with positive effects on autonomic
      >nervous system balance, cardiovascular efficiency, and reduced secretion
      >of the stress hormone cortisol. Other tests have revealed that coherent
      >HRV patterns produce greater increases in cognitive functioning than even
      >the relaxation response, giving the expression “putting your heart into
      >it” new scientific heft. (The implications for human performance have not
      >been lost on the corporate world: Hewlett Packard, Shell, Sony, Boeing,
      >and GlaxoSmithKline are using HeartMath training for stress management and
      >enhanced productivity. A federal pilot grant is funding HeartMath in nine
      >school districts, based on preliminary findings that it increases
      >standardized test scores.)"
