Heart brain coherence help you quickly shift from stress to peace.

Is stress sabotaging your health and happiness? With fast-paced schedules and never-ending to-do lists, reducing stress is essential for your well-being and quality of life. Stress is the biggest contributor to dis-ease as it restricts the energetic flow of your emotions, creativity, and healing. High stress can lead to issues with anger, anxiety, depression, sleep, and more. By using heart brain coherence techniques you can shift from stress to peace in minutes!

Heart Brain Coherence

What is heart brain coherence? Heart brain coherence happens when your heart and brain connect, communicate, and operate as one unified system. This coherent state feels like your mind, body, and emotions are in sync, which helps you feel grounded and build resilience.

Being in coherence allows you to access the wisdom of your heart AND brain simultaneously. Pretty cool, right?

Tapping into the power of your heart’s intelligence and intuitive guidance can improve how you make decisions and handle challenges. Heart brain coherence also enhances your intuition and calms your nervous system, helping you relax and go with the flow of life.

Heart Rate Variability (HRV)

How do you achieve heart brain coherence? You can use specific techniques to achieve heart brain coherence (HBC) and Heart Rate Variability (HRV) to measure it. HRV reflects your inner state. If you don’t have access to a HRV device, you can also notice how you feel. With incoherence, you feel… fatigue, stress, anxiety, mental fog, impatient, reactive, confused, tired, depleted, stuck, and frustrated. With coherence, you feel… energized, resilient, calm, clear-headed, patient, relaxed, intuitive, rested, rejuvenated, creative, and appreciative.

What is HeartMath?

HeartMath is based on over 25 years of scientific research. This includes over 300 independent peer-reviewed studies that focus on how the heart influences emotions, perceptions, health, and intuition. These studies show the connection between the heart and brain and stress reduction, finding balance, and building resilience.

Your heart is constantly emitting energy from you and it’s through this unseen vibration that all living things are connected. This video explains the importance of this connection and how deeper awareness can support your health and well-being.

Biofeedback at Home

What’s the best way to do biofeedback? The HeartMath Inner Balance device is best for individuals, while the EmWave device is best for multiple users. Both biofeedback technologies track your heart-rhythm or Heart Rate Variability (HRV) in real-time.

Get started by downloading the HeartMath Inner Balance app or EmWave software and attaching the sensor clip to your earlobe. The app tracks HRV and guides you into greater coherence. With practice, these methods strengthen intuition and resilience. Try this Quick Coherence Technique to experience the benefits!

How Does it Work?

  • Observe your HRV or your inner balance.
  • Use the coherence techniques while focusing on loving feelings.
  • Get feedback to confirm positive shifts AND sustain them.
  • Practice for a few minutes at a time throughout your day.

Heart Intelligence

Your heart is much more than an organ. Neuro-cardiologists have found that the heart has its own independent nervous system. Although it might surprise you, the heart and brain are in constant communication and the heart does MOST of the talking. Your heart sends important signals to your entire body to create a coherent state that supports relaxation and healing.

How Does Heart Brain Coherence Increase Intuition?

Your heart is a spiritual access point for intuitive intelligence that surpasses that of the brain. Research indicates that the heart communicates a steady stream of intuitive info to the brain. As you relax your mind and tune into these feelings, you’ll naturally strengthen your intuition and access a deeper understanding of yourself, others, and life’s challenges.

Intuition is a source of deep wisdom and inner knowingness that bypasses normal thought patterns. When you’re connected to your intuition, you overcome limitations much easier.

Energetic Heart

Your heart’s electromagnetic field (EMF) is 60 times greater than your brain’s! This field extends around your body and is greatly impacted by your EMOTIONS.

Why Focus on Positive Emotions?

Connecting with genuine heart-felt feelings of love, courage, compassion, kindness, appreciation, gratitude, empathy, and patience creates a smooth and harmonious heart rhythm that can have a powerful influence on your health and life.

Heart brain coherence impacts EVERYTHING, including your health and how you feel. You deserve to live in a relaxed state. 

Benefits of Coherence

HeartMath’s research proves that different heart patterns have different effects on your thoughts and behaviors. Over 11,500 HeartMath study participants experienced improvements in 6-9 weeks of implementing heart brain coherence techniques.

Health Benefits Include

  • 56% drop in depression

  • 46% drop in anxiety
  • 38% improvement in calmness
  • 30% improvement in sleep
  • 24% improvement in the ability to focus

Is HeartMath a Relaxation Program?

No. Although it’s relaxing, heart brain coherence (a change in heart rhythm pattern) is the goal. Achieving coherence has benefits far beyond relaxation. Relaxation is a low-energy state in which you disengage from your mind and emotions. In contrast, coherence is an energized state that engages positive emotions to calm your nervous system and increase mental function.

Is HeartMath a Breathing Exercise?

No. Rhythmic breathing can create coherence, but maintaining constant focus on the breath is challenging. Although breathing is emphasized, it’s not the focus. Instead, HeartMath focuses on heart emotions because it’s the most efficient way to achieve coherence. Coherence allows for increases in intuition, creativity, mental performance, and more!

What Happens if You’re in Incoherence? 

Think of a car. Incoherence is like having a foot on the gas AND brake simultaneously. This creates a jerky ride, burns more gas, and isn’t great for your car! These stressful patterns are especially damaging and depleting when prolonged.

Global Coherence Initiative

Research shows our interconnectedness with all things. When you’re in heart brain coherence, you radiate energy that benefits you, others, animals, and the planet. The more coherence you have, the more it helps others have it too. HeartMath also recognizes the connection between human and Earth energies, which has inspired a global coherence initiative. Through intention and cooperation, we can positively impact our world. By improving your heart brain coherence, you become more conscious of the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that you feed the “field.” This leads to increased global harmony, and peace. HeartMath Founder, Doc Childre says…

“Dare to connect with your heart. You will be lifting not only yourself and those you love and care about, but also the world in which you live.”
