Guest: Howard Martin, Executive Vice President, HeartMath, Inc.
During the pandemic, people re-evaluated their priorities and connected with deeper values regarding their relationships with family and work. Despite what it looks like on the news, many became more optimistic about the future as a result. A recent Harris Poll reported, “Sweeping research suggests the future is bright and we are rethinking, resetting, and reimagining our futures for the better. Hope and optimism are increasing, connections with friends and family are strengthening and we are re-prioritizing towards what matters to us most.”
Add Heart® Podcast host Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., and her guest Howard Martin, Executive Vice President, HeartMath, Inc., talk about the awakening of the heart that is occurring around the world. They discuss a new opportunity that humanity has right now to sustain the awakening of compassion and heart connection without needing a pandemic, disasters, or other stressors to motivate us. It’s in the heart that people access feelings such as compassion, care, kindness, forgiveness, and appreciation that lift us above separation, judgments, and blame.
In our deeper heart, we can sense that nothing is going to change until we can start to put our heart first. Caring and genuine heart connections can help to offset stress accumulation from anxiety, fear, or panic, while clearing the mind for effective reasoning, especially when confronted with health, financial, or societal challenges.
In the new edition of their book Heart Intelligence: Connecting with the Heart’s Intuitive Guidance for Effective Choices and Solutions, released in February 2022, Deborah and Howard share how we can build trust in our heart’s intuitive guidance and how each person’s heart intelligence (heart’s intuitive guidance) can help us connect to higher choices and untapped potentials.
The episode closes with a heart meditation that we can use daily to energize our commitment to adding more heart to all of our relationships and connections, knowing that we are each contributing to a shift in humanity’s energies from separation to cooperation and resulting in higher solutions to our global, social, and economic problems.
