How to Care for Your Heart for Valentines + Full Moon Care Focus

Global Coherence Initiative

 

Being a good lover or a good friend begins with a good person. In professional arenas, a good doctor, engineer, lawyer, politician, etcetera, always begins with a good person. a good person begins with a good heart. A good heart begins with a person who uses his/her heart for the improvement of humanity, for the improvement of the world around us.

What better way to learn how to use your heart for the improvement of the world around you than by exercising your heart’s hidden gifts? Did you know that your heart is the source of your intuition? Your emotional drive? Your aspirations in life?

Sure, conventional neuroscience is centered upon the brain, but the brain is only part of the human puzzle. We’re not like machines with readily interchangeable parts, or parts that can be removed with no consequence. We are holistic beings.

All ancient cultures examined the entire living body holistically; they knew that we are not simply this brain or that body. For example, traditional chinese medical practitioners knew that each organ of the body were centers of emotional energy. Upon recognizing symptoms including emotional difficulties, they would treat the corresponding set of organs.

Each organ in our bodies stay healthy with proper circulation of blood, lymph, and energy; this includes emotional energy. For example, there are more ways to exercise the heart rather than cardiovascular exercise: When we focus on healing and compassion, we also exercise the heart. Emotional expression is an exercise for your internal organs – if you didn’t know this before – know you do.

It just so happens that the people with Global Coherence Initiative provides us with the perfect outlet for emotional expressions of the heart. When your care focus combines with one tenth of one percent of the care focused population on this planet, this leads to the “Maharishi Effect,” or world peace translating into more productive behavior.

Please Join GCI’s 7 February full moon care focus to give your heart a proper emotional workout. In turn, this activity leads to your being a good person, which leads to your being a good friend, lover, and everything else you do in life.

GCI February 2012 Full Moon Synchronized Care Focus
Welcome to the Global Coherence Initiative’s February 7, 2012 full moon (21:54 UT) synchronized Care Focus. In order for GCI members around the world to participate at a convenient time, we have chosen 4 a.m., 12:00 p.m. (noon), and 8 p.m. Pacific Standard Time ( GMT/UTC minus 8 hours ) when GCI members in the Global Care Room can do the Care Focus together.* (The following website – www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html – is a time conversion site for determining the exact time the Care Focus will take place in your Local Time Zone. Select time: 8 p.m. (date optional). Convert from: Location: U.S.A. – California – San Francisco. Convert to: Location: Select your Country/City.) Thank you for being with us.Our Care Focus this full moon is again directed toward the conflict in Syria. More than 5,000 people have died in Syria since the government launched a crackdown against demonstrators. The Arab League, comprised of 22 Arab countries in the Middle East, suspended its monitoring mission in Syria and the United Nations Security Council is preparing a draft resolution that would call on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down. The longer the fighting goes on in Syria, the more radical the revolution is becoming. Many communities that traditionally have been a place of religious tolerance are beginning to divide along religious lines. The people of Syria and the Arab League need coherent heart energy to help resolve this conflict and bring peace and hope to the Syrian people.For the February full moon Care Focus, let’s send our collective heart intention for the most peaceful resolution possible to the conflict in Syria, then radiate coherent heart energy to other global issues and challenges in the Middle East or other areas of the planet, as your intuitive heart guidance directs you.

For those of you who are new participants in the synchronized Care Focus, if you are logged into the Global Care Room, you can see your green marker and the gold light points of others around the world in the Care Room at the same time. Realize that one gold light can represent a family, a group or an entire audience viewing the Care Room and doing the Care Focus together.

Care Focus: Syria
We will start by breathing love and genuine care in and out through our heart area to increase our heart coherence … Now let’s connect in the heart with everyone participating in this Care Focus. Imagine our interconnectedness as a network of light and love, and release this collective care to facilitate the highest, best outcome for the whole…Now let’s send our collective heart intention for the most peaceful resolution possible to the conflict in Syria, one that will bring more hope and unity to the Syrian people, and radiate compassion and clarity to all those trying to resolve this crisis… When you feel complete with this, send the collective heart energy to other global issues and challenges in the Middle East or other areas of the planet, as your intuitive heart guidance directs you. After 15 minutes

You can continue to do this Care Focus in the Global Care Room after the full moon period, with the intention of strengthening the coherence we radiate into the global field.
