HEART INTELLIGENCE IS USING YOUR EMOTIONAL AWARENESS AND INTUITION TO THINK AND ACT RATIONALLY
Children are emotional beings. They act and react to circumstances based on how they feel. Life may always bring about things that have the potential to make our hearts grow cold, but having tools at a young age to help bounce back from a mental, physical or emotional setbacks can mean a world of difference.
Resilience is your ability to reset when something challenges you. A healthy and authentic way to recover from circumstances that bring you stress is Heart Intelligence.
"EDUCATING THE MIND WITHOUT EDUCATING THE HEART IS NO EDUCATION AT ALL"
YOUR HEART HAS A BRAIN!
Your heart has an electromagnetic field 60 times greater than your brain. This explains why you can feel when something is wrong when walking into a room far faster and more accurately than your brain has time to process. This is Heart Intelligence at work.
Your heart contains a "little brain" of its very own that can hold memory and process information just like the brain in your head! Your heart's brain contains 40,000 neurons and sends more information to your brain than the brain sends to your heart.
Use your heart's undisputed form of intelligence to empower you to remain calm and clear minded under pressure.

Great Day Academics
To Our Kids!
The core of our education system is centered around Mental Intelligence. When this form of left - brain intelligence is balanced with other forms of IQ like Heart Intelligence, we start to see children who are more self-aware, honest, happy, engaged and resilient. They show more courage to do the right thing and have a better sense of purpose as they grow.
Great Day teaches students to be their very own super hero, to process their feelings in the moment so it doesn't result in school violence or cause harm to themselves.
These "Heart" Power-Tools were designed to increase positive DHEA hormones which are known to generate courage and confidence, while reducing stress, anxiety and depression.
Several added bonuses to learning Heart-Smart tools at a young age are the abilities to form authentic relationships and make decisions based on the good of all involved.
HEART - SMART TOOLS
MAKE MORE CONSCIOUS SCHOOLS
Knowledge of the heart's intelligence has been around for centuries, however in Western Civilization, according to the HeartMath Institute, it wasn't until the1960s and ’70s that pioneer physiologists John and Beatrice Lacey conducted research that showed the heart actually communicates with the brain in ways that greatly affect how we perceive and react to the world around us.
The heart is the first organ formed in the human embryo, it forms before the brain and has it's own independent, complex nervous system known as "the brain of the heart".
Every heart contraction creates a wave that pushes blood through the veins and arteries providing an energetic signal that helps synchronize all the cells of the body, including the brain.
The heart is a hormone-producing endocrine gland, producing ANF to control blood- pressure, adrenaline, dopamine, and oxytocin (the love hormone). Oxytocin reduces fear, increases eye-contact, and increases trust and generosity.
When practicing the use of Heart Intelligence, you increase healthy hormones and the electromagnetic field around your heart.
"HEART INTELLIGENCE FEELS LIKE AN EPIPHANY"
It took me years to fully understand what self-love really meant and quite honestly, I am still learning. When asked if I loved myself, I'd say, "yes", but after becoming more aware of the pressure I impose on myself to look, act and do things in comparison to others, is far from true self-love. Self-love is unconditional. "Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy. It does not boast. It is not easily angered and keeps no record of wrongs". Applying these quotes to how I treat myself heightened my ability to internalize the concept of self-love.
This too, is my wish for you!
