Howard Martin: Did you know your heart has intelligence?

Howard Martin is one of the original leaders who helped Doc Childre found HeartMath. In 1999 he co-authored The HeartMath Solution published by HarperSanFrancisco and he has been with HeartMath’s world-wide training and consulting team since its inception in 1991. In 2016 he went on to co-author Heart Intelligence. He is also the producer of two award winning musical recordings including Doc Childre’s Heart Zones which spent 50 consecutive weeks on Billboard Magazine’s music charts. In 2019 he produced a video-based learbing experience, The HeartMath Experience
During his career with HeartMath, he has been instrumental in business development and in delivering HeartMath’s practical, yet dynamic, programs to thousands of participants world-wide. Because of his universal appeal, he has conducted training programs and keynote presentations in Fortune 100 companies, government agencies, all four branches of the U.S. military, school systems, ecumenical organizations and through publicly promoted events in over 75 cities on four continents.
He is a member of Transformational Leadership Council, an exclusive organization made up of well-known authors and acknowledged leaders in the field of personal and organizational development and he is a member of Evolutionary Leaders, an organization founded by Depak Chopra comprised of many of the world’s most respected visionary leaders. What you might not know is that in a former life, Howard was also a leading drummer for bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bob Seger.
Here’s the thing, those phrases we’ve all heard like “follow your heart” have scientific backing. Some of the amazing nuggets of wisdom from this conversation are as follows:
Things We Learned From This Episode
  • You heart is an information processing center that gives signals to the brain, and from the brain to the body. So many of us live from the neck up and don’t realize the incredible wisdom and real intelligence in our hearts. As Howard said, his heart’s intelligence is his own best friend.
  • To better define heart intelligence, Howard explained it as an intuitive high speed knowingness that gives birth to most of our generative emotions like more caring, kindness, joy and love. It is the essential intelligence that navigates life to it’s highest fulfillment
  • We spoke of a new world emerging that is based on a higher consciousness, which then changes what we pereive. While Howard can’t predict what exactly will emergy, he shared that we can see an increasing polarization and exposure of gross inequities. This polarization will lead to shifts in our systems and overall global consciousness, which ultimately will be for the best in the long run.
  • Most importantly, when you add your heart to something, you never lose.
