  • The Resilient Educator: Trainer’s Notes © 2004 Institute of HeartMath This gives you a chance to balance emotions and regain mental clarity, which helps you shift perceptions and attitudes in order to find effective solutions. This helps you balance your mind and emotions to regain clarity; then you can shift into attitudes and perceptions that magnetize effective solutions. It’s like freezing a frame in the movie, it’s where the reediting starts. Hit pause on the TIVO or DVR. It changes the flow. Changes the flow of the pee.

  • The Resilient Educator: Trainer’s Notes © 2004 Institute of HeartMath Animated slide First you get Neutral. Click with heart focus and heart breathing. Everyone practice that again now. Now you activate a heart feeling click to impact the longer lasting hormonal shifts that come from positive emotions. Refer to the horizontal axis on the Grid. One of the easiest ways to do this step is to remember a special place, Click the appreciation or love you feel for a close friend or family member click or a special place or click anything that feels good to you. It could be something funny; even a dish of your favorite ice cream. It can be a genuine feeling of any of the emotions on this side of the left side of the Grid. Ask for more examples. The important thing is to feel it; not just think about it or visualize it. You want to re-experience the moment. It's the sincere feeling that comes from the experience that counts and anchors physiological coherence. Try these steps to Quick Coherence. Closing your eyes will help you practice this step until it becomes more natural. Remember: Don't just think positive. Feel positive. And sustain that positive feeling for about 20 seconds. Okay, now first get Neutral. Focus on the area around your heart. Feel your breath coming in through your heart and out through your solar plexus. Wait 10 seconds. Now, make a sincere effort to activate a positive feeling. Wait 30 seconds. What did you notice? Mentally, emotionally, physically? Relate to physiological shifts on the Grid. Where did this experience put you on the Grid? How can this help you throughout the day? Let’s do it again. Heart focus. Heart breathing. Heart feeling. Wait 30 seconds. Let’s see what this can do to your hormonal balance.
