The heart is a primary generator of rhythm in your body, influencing brain processes that control your nervous system, cognitive function, and emotion. Quick Coherence, a powerful technique for refocusing emotion, connects you with your `energetic heart zone to help you release stress, balance your emotions, and feel better fast. Once you’ve learned the technique, it only takes a minute to do. Practicing Quick Coherence will help you find a feeling of ease and inner harmony that will be reflected in your heart rhythms. More coherent heart rhythms facilitate brain function, allowing you more access to your own higher intelligence, so that you can improve your focus, creativity, intuition, and high-level decision making . Here’s how it works.
1. Heart Focus
Focus your attention in the area of your heart. If this sounds confusing, try this: Focus on your right big toe and wiggle it. Now focus on your right elbow. Now gently focus in the center of your chest, the area of your heart. (Most people think the heart is on the left side of the chest, but it’s really closer to the center, behind the breast bone.) If you like, you can put your hand over your heart to help. If your mind wanders, just keep shifting your attention back to the area of your heart. Now you’re ready for the next step, Heart Breathing.
2. Heart Breathing
As you focus on the area of you heart, imagine your breath is flowing in and out through the area. This helps your mind and energy to stay focused in the heart area and your respiration and heart rhythms to synchronize. Breathe slowly and gently in through your heart (to a count of five or six) and slowly and easily out through your heart (to a count of 6 or 7). Do this until your breathing feels smooth and balanced, not forced. Continue to breathe with ease until you find a natural inner rhythm that feels good to you.
3. Heart Feeling
Continue to breathe through the area of your heart. As you do so, recall a positive feeling, a time when you felt good inside, and try to re-experience it. This could be a feeling of appreciation or care toward a special person or pet, a place you enjoy, or an activity that was fun. Allow yourself to feel this good feeling of appreciation or care. If you can’t feel anything, it’s okay; just try to find a sincere attitude of appreciation or care. Once you’ve found a positive feeling or attitude, you can sustain it by continuing your Heart Focus, Heart Breathing, and Heart Feeling. It’s that simple.
When feeling stressed do this several times a day and you will be surprised how much easier it will be to handle future stressful situations.
