Our hearts send just as many signals to our brains as our brains do to our hearts—in fact, more. These signals influence our emotions, as well as cognitive faculties, such as attention, perception, and problem-solving. The HeartMath technique recognizes and furthers this interaction between the heart and brain to help us bring our physical, mental, and emotional systems into balanced alignment using the heart’s intuitive guidance. At Blue Ray of Hope, we offer coaching in the HeartMath technique, which can be integrated into your day-to-day life to break through undesirable patterns, reduce stress and anxiety, and take charge of how you feel.
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
– Carl Jung
Benefits of HeartMath
Our heart rhythm patterns are the best reflection of our inner state. HeartMath resets your internal battery, makes you more aware of your emotions, and helps you learn what’s depleting you and what’s energizing you. Consistent application of the HeartMath technique offers the following benefits:
- Less stress and more inner peace
- More satisfaction and increased wellbeing
- Less anxiety and fear
- Better balance of work and personal life
- Easier decision-making ability
- Reduced feelings of being overloaded or overwhelmed
- Improved strategic thinking
- Better concentration
- Enhanced creativity of the mind
- More energy and vitality
- More appreciation for others and/or your job
- Enhanced self-confidence
- Reduced mood swings
- Reduced physical complaints, such as fatigue and headaches
The HeartMath technique can benefit anyone to enhance resilience, health, and wellbeing, and it can be especially helpful for those in stress-inducing situations. For example, HeartMath has been shown to increase student graduation rates and test scores, as well as reduce test and social anxiety. Using the HeatMath technique, you can shift in the moment from feeling frustration or anxiety into a state of balance and positive feelings, such as appreciation, compassion, and love. No matter what we’re doing, positive emotions help our body’s systems synchronize and work better.
Compared to many emotional wellness techniques, HeartMath is very simple, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t powerful or effective. Its simplicity makes it more so. Once you have HeartMath tools at your disposal, you can use them any time—at work, at school, in the car, at home—and you’ll be able to calm your anxiety in the moment and strengthen your resiliency over time. By learning how to access the intuitive intelligence of your heart, you can become the best, most whole, version of yourself.
