Harmony with HeartMath

I had the pleasure to meet Deborah at the HeartMath Summit for Lifting Global Consciousness in Tulum this past fall. I helped facilitate their conference through the XChange facilitation methodology, which is in harmony with HeartMath in that it’s all about focusing on strengths, thriving, and flourishing. I fell in love with HeartMath’s mission and work, the variety of HeartMath coherence practices we learned, as well as learning the science behind heart intelligence. This interview gives you a lot more information and understanding of how our heart truly is the wise leader to follow. You will see why popular phrases like ‘follow your heart’ are backed by science and are real.


The Coherent Rhythm of HeartMath

Here are a few main takeaways from our very in-depth conversation about all things heart-connection related.


  1. Our hearts naturally have a varied heart rate rhythm pattern, called HRV. Anything stressful will cause a more chaotic pattern wave. However, when you feel joyful, peaceful, or love, your wave pattern will be in coherence. You can learn to shift your mood and perception of life and train yourself to get into heart coherence. This has extraordinarily healthy benefits on all aspects of your life.
  2. The way out of stress, anger, and depression are connected to shifting your heart wave pattern. You can learn these techniques on the website and/or with a HeartMath certified trainer and practitioner.
  3. Intuition, while often felt as a gut feeling, actually is signaled first in the heart and travels to the brain.
  4. Gratitude opens our frontal lobe for compassion and allows for heart coherence—another great reason to start and have a gratitude practice.


Final Thoughts

Dr. Deborah Rozman gives great insight into the need to calm our minds, ease our stress, and get into the coherent rhythms of the heart. That beautiful beating is where love and happiness reside. It is within these rhythmic beats where good health and peace of mind reside. To find out more about HeartMath, make sure to listen to the full episode and visit Dr. Deborah Rozman’s site.
