Happiness should not be that complicated, but for a lot of us, it is! The challenge for most people, as I see it, is having the willingness to connect to the deeper parts of your self to your heart.

My hope is that you’ll get a lot of out of this three-part series as I share what I’ve learned throughout my career and in my research that I’ve found to be very important.

In part 1, I’ll share some fascinating information from the HeartMath Institute, an organization that studies how the heart works, not just physically, but how it responds to mental and emotional stimuli.

For example, one study hooked up people to very sensitive instruments and monitored how their bodies responded to seeing specific images and videos on a screen.

What they learned: The heart was always the first part of the body to respond to incoming information. Other researchers apart from the HeartMath Institute have found the heart is responsible for what’s known as precognition which means, very simply, knowing before you know.

Ever had an intuitive sense that you just know something’s going to be a good decision or a bad one, like getting in a car or not?

If you’re skeptical at all, consider what your life would be like if you didn’t have that connection to your heart.

How would you live if all information was absorbed first by your brain, then into your body and consciousness without integrating with your heart?

Or, how would you even operate if information never got past your body and into your consciousness?

The challenge is to get past the programming that creates a never-ending feedback loop and become a conscious, whole person…

Stay tuned for part 2!

Love and chi,
