Care for Yourself, Care for the Planet (video)

When we get out of sorts, stressed, frustrated or overwhelmed, it can distract us from our true intention to care more for others and our planet. Care is a valuable and vital resource; it revitalizes and acts as a soothing tonic for the human system. Caring is a powerful motivator; it inspires us and gently revitalizes us. It comes from the depth of our being, the core of our hearts. Watch the video below and then download this free e-Book which is all about understanding care.

Care Changes Lives and Our Earth

Download for free, Understanding Care: A HeartMath e-Book

In this e-book you will learn the Cut-Thru® technique, the difference between care and what we call overcare, overidentification, overattachment and balanced care. Caring, like other positive emotions, increases the heart’s rhythmic patterns and improves the health of your heart, nervous and hormonal systems. Care is regenerative for both the sender and receiver. Ask yourself: Is my caring adding quality to my life and our planet Earth or is it stress producing? The Cut-Thru technique will help you through this process. Increasing genuine care can change our lives and perhaps the world.

Before the Lord healed me, according to doctor's records, I was in so much pain I could hardly bear it. I learned about taking care of myself.

I learned to talk reassuringly to my body just as if I were comforting a little child. The body would settle down. The pain would stop completly. I'd just soothe and comfort the body.

But - let me think one negative thought and the pain sprang up the measuring scale into near screams.

Then, I talked to my body again just as I would to a little child.
The pain quieted.

I have become absolutely convinced that the body has an intelligence of it's own. I've fallen in love with my body. It has been so good to me over these near 69 years.

Once I took myself out of the unbearable life situtation I had gotten into, I turned my body over to it's Creator. He healed me, according to records. My testimony is on my profile page.

This is 3 years later and my health is right nigh perfect.

I am grateful and so is my body.

"Care and appreciate"'s sad but I know so many people who don't even do that! I don't understand how they can not...

We pretty much understand and accept the concept of PTSD for people in war zones. Why wouldn't that …
