Happiness is in your heart.
No, not that spiritual, esoteric, mysterious entity we sing and write poems about.
Happiness is in your literal heart.
The same one beating away happily right now in the centre of your chest.
One of the most significant scientific discoveries of our time is that our hearts have a powerful energy field.
The Institute of HeartMath, a highly esteemed research group whose work has been verified in studies conducted by Stanford University and Miami Heart Research Institute among others, has found that our hearts generate an electromagnetic field around us.
This field is several feet in diameter and five thousand times greater than the field generated by the brain.
Did you notice..
five thousand times greater!! The HeartMath researchers discovered that when people focus on emotions such as appreciation, love and gratitude that they're able to create more coherence and harmony in their heart rhythms at will.
The researchers learned that when we activate the power of our hearts and intentionally have sincere feelings such as appreciation, care and love, we allow our heart's electrical energy to work for us.
When we do this we are able to manage stress more effectively.
Your heart is the seat of positive emotions.
One of the most powerful emotions generated by your heart is Gratitude, which results in true happiness when you create Gratitude the electrical impulses and vibrations form a positive and powerful magnetic field which begins to draw to yourself more positive situations such as Peace, Compassion and Love.
Jack Canfield one of America's great educators and author of "Chicken Soup for the Soul" promotes the importance of a Gratitude Journal.
He sees it as a valuable tool for development and growth.
Take the time to list the things you are grateful for, like your health, your job and your friends...
but also the air we breathe, the sun, the sky and the little bird singing in your backyard.
Albert Einstein said "there are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle, the other is as though everything is a miracle.
" What is it that Albert Einstein saw that we can't seem to see? Was he looking at the same clouds and sky? Was he speaking of the trees and the rivers and the mountains that we see only casually? Begin to see the miracles that are all around us and be thankful and grateful to be a part of the ultimate miracle of Life.
Your heart will then be filled with happiness, and your days will begin to have the flavour of honey and your "cup will be running over.
