HeartMath Institute provides techniques and tools to live from the heart and cope up with the day to day stress which has surrounded the current humanity.They state that the heart intelligence is much more powerful and have the ability to take you to the routes unimaginable and out of context to the brain. If used properly through heart coherence –a technique which I will be discussing in this article can work wonders in your overall well-being and quality of life.
Now, not stressing too much on our analytical mind, I want to ask you that if the mind is so perfect to reason, then why you face problems in life. The answer is to use it along with heart intelligence. Using heart intelligence adds the intuition power in making decisions leading you to right place, right time, right people and right decision.
“Heart intelligence is the flow of awareness, understanding, and intuition we experience when the mind and emotions are brought into coherent alignment with the heart.” Institute of HeartMath.
Working of the left and right hemisphere of brain
Our left part of the brain is responsible for logical or analytical thinking while right side adds to intuition, compassion, and spirituality. The right side of the brain provides us with creative solutions which come to us and freed as from little worries which a person living only from left brain can’t even conceive of. The right side if comprehended and made use in a proper way allows us to live a fulfilling life. Knowing this spiritual dimension, we gain a new perspective on the routine events which earlier might have played havoc. Also, we come to realize that each event is a part of the totality or the greater plan. The seemingly irrelevant events either bad or good will start making sense once we connect the dots looking back in time.
Some strange facts about heart
The heart has its own memory (65% more neurons than muscle cells) and link to the brain and possesses an electromagnetic field which covers a distance of few meters away from us. This electromagnetic field is capable of interacting with the planet and its components (living as well as non-living).This connection of our heart with each and every component corroborates the ancient saying that all is one and one is all.
A research at HeartMath tells that our heart experiences a balanced rhythm on thinking peaceful thoughts as opposed to erratic ones on thinking negative ones.
What is heart intelligence and how to access it?
Heart intelligence is the ability to be in the present moment, accepting the situations as they are and going with the flow of life.
As Michel singer talks in his famous book ”the surrender experiment”, surrendering to the flow of life made him the CEO of the medical manager corporation.
“Am I better off making up an alternate reality in my mind and then fighting with reality to make it be my way, or am I better off letting go of what I want and serving the same forces of reality that managed to create the entire perfection of the universe around me?” ― Mickey A. Singer, The Surrender Experiment: My Journey into Life’s Perfection
Heart intelligence can be accessed when the mind and emotions come in coherence with the heart. Upon reaching this point, an individual can get in the flow with life or the infinite possibility where you can find solutions to either your most trivial or most complex situations. The wisdom that comes from this source will lead you to the most appropriate path that serves your highest good.
Using heart coherence can take you to dimensions unknown to you previously.

On an ending note, let me share with you a quick coherence technique taken from the HeartMath, which you can implement in your daily life to achieve a balance in every sector of your life.
• Focus your attention and awareness on the center of the chest/heart area.
• Imagine breathing in and out from this area for few seconds slowly and deeply.
• All this while, keep maintaining a balanced heart rhythm

This gives you a balanced rhythm and lays an impact on every task and situation which you embark upon. You can find many other heart coherence techniques at the HeartMath website (https://www.heartmath.org/).
