Are you living the life you want? If the answer is no, the simple and practical tools of HeartMath® is your solution.
Did you know we have the ability/choice to generate positive emotions and to counteract stress before it affects us? By activating our heart’s intelligence (our heart has a brain!!) you create a heart-brain communication that creates a shift to a state of coherence and in doing so you transform stress and reduce it’s negative impact on YOU.
Is HeartMath® for me?
Are you concerned about the amount of stress you are dealing with in your personal/professional life? You feel it’s affecting your ability to focus, your relationships, performance and health. You are losing interest in your daily activities, you are less and less happy; you are experiencing a loss of energy and feeling depleted. You know this is not the life you want and wonder how did I get here and how can I change it?
Physiology of Stress
Our bodies’ stress response is designed to ensure our survival (fight or flight). It’s designed to help us escape life-threatening dangers. Once we have either eliminated or escaped the perceived danger, our body is able to come back to its natural and normal state.
Our modern day stressors, “dangers”, are not the life threatening ones we were originally designed to fight: hungry predators have been replaced by financial pressure, work related stress, relationship stress, health issues, etc. Because we cannot escape these, our bodies are rarely given the opportunity to come back to their normal physiology.
What if we could bring our system back into balance? What is we could balance our nervous and hormonal systems in a simple and practical way? What if we could neutralize stress as it is occurring? What if we could create resiliency (sustained coherence) so we can navigate through stressful circumstances?
HeartMath® is the only scientifically-validated system of stress and emotional management training that can help you reverse the effects of stress and meet life’s challenges in the moment stress is occurring with poise and resiliency. I will coach you in tools and techniques designed to help you access and use the power of your heart’s intelligence to enhance your intuition, improve your focus and creativity, increase emotional balance, lower your stress and much more.
Please see the Stress Questionnaire if you wish to determine your stress level.
It involves pondering some important questions about your life:
- What do I want my life to look like?
- What gets in my way?
- What can I do about it?
- How do I sustain it?
I will provide you with the following:
- Education on what stress is and the emotions & physiology involved in its process
- Coaching to appreciate your core values and energy assets and raise awareness on what triggers your stress and energy drains.
- Practice of a set of practical and simple techniques designed to promote a state of coherence, which prevents the stress response to occur, or reduces its impact even in stressful circumstances.
HOW DOES HEARTMATH® WORK?
HeartMath® coaching ideally requires four 1-1.5-hour sessions, spread out weekly over the course of four to five weeks. The first session is used for getting to know the client, goals and setting up appointments. This is the most effected method to achieve mastery to coherence and core valued filled life. Upon completion of the series, you will be fully independent and empowered to manage your stress levels in your daily life. The final session is a follow up to ensure client is satisfied and to answer any questions. (Total of 6 sessions)
During a session we monitor your natural “coherence” level with software designed by HeartMath® to measure Heart Rate Variability.
You will see in real time on the screen how your heart rhythm patterns fluctuate depending on your emotional state and level of coherence.
During a session you will deepen your understanding and knowledge of the HeartMath® techniques, including real time practice. In between sessions you will have “homeplay” for the next schedule session.
Each session builds up on the previous week’s practice improving awareness and insights. You will learn various ways to apply the techniques in different areas of your life. Sessions are usually conducted via phone so geographical distance is a not a barrier.
Purchasing of one of the emWave® devices (computer software, handheld device or mobile phone app) is highly recommended so you can monitor yourself at home like we do during sessions, and build your practice efficiently.
ORIGIN OF HEARTMATH®
The Institute of HeartMath® Mission is to facilitate a fundamental shift in health, well-being and consciousness.
The Institute of HeartMath® (IHM), founded in 1991 by Doc Childre, is a non-profit research and education organization with a mission to study the physiological mechanisms by which the heart communicates with the brain and its influence on cognitive processing, perception, emotion and health.
From its research the IHM has developed techniques and technology that form the foundation of HeartMath® training programs and products for education.
The for-profit branches of HeartMath® (HeartMath® LLC and Quantum Intech, Inc.) are developing the technologies and promoting the products and training programs all over the world.
