Nourishing the Collective Heart

  • 2 of 3


One of the most interesting findings is that coherence in human physiology starts with the heart. McCraty and Childre have found that positive emotions such as appreciation and compassion are reflected in a heart-rhythm pattern “that is more coherent,” as opposed to negative emotions such as anxiety, anger and fear, which generate a heart rhythm pattern “that is more incoherent” as you can see from the picture below.

Repeated research studies have shown that individuals who intentionally generate such positive emotions were able to raise their coherence levels, which resulted in improved mental and intuitive clarity, greater resilience and more meaningful relationships.

Explore, Discover the GCI Experience

There are wonderful free tools and techniques for increasing your personal coherence and collective coherence on the GCI website, so that when requests go out to the Global Coherence community to radiate heart-coherent love, care or compassion energy, especially to areas in crisis, we are building the collective heart coherence level.

There are Personal and Community Trackers on the GCI Web site to help you track your progress, for those of you who like to do that. Personal trackers help you assess and manage your stress (incoherence) level as well as increase your heart coherence level. The Community Tracker lets you view the latest collective results of people anywhere in the world using the Tracker. Also on the My Member Page you’ll find a special Coherence Tools tab to help you and the community achieve heart coherence faster and sustain it longer. You have to become a member and log in to use these web apps, but becoming a member is free.
