My radio interview with Drew Heriot, the director of ‘The Secret’ and his new movie, ‘The Power of The Heart’

 

THE POWER OF THE HEARTIt was a pretty good week for me getting to interview Drew Heriot, the director of The Secret and The Power Of The Heart which is just such a wonderful movie.  I have been banging on about it on here, and to my close friends.  Here’s our chat which really enjoyed and even more so getting to meet this very nice guy face to face.   Have you seen The Power of The Heart?  NO? Well for heavens sakes (literally), download it or buy the DVD soon.  You won’t regret it!

My radio interview with Glenn Ridge, and author Susan Pearse (radio interview)

My interview on Glenn Ridge’s MyMp radio with author Susan Pearse, on her book ONE MOMENT PLEASE ‘It’s Time To Pay Attention’…what I really love about the content of this book is that it reminds us of all the things we distract ourselves with, all the things our children are spending their time on rather than just being present in what IS.  And what IS, is all that is around us, like nature, the people we love that we don’t get enough time with as it is.  What IS are thoughts that are forming in our heads about life, our emotional state and appreciating the world around us, without having something that someone else has created, get in the way of our own peace and our own development as a person. I believe we’re losing so much precious time by technology use,  that many of us are on a very unhealthy hamster wheel, and I have no doubt it is the very reason why there is a huge rise in people all over the world who are suffering regular bouts of anxiety. ONE MOMENT PLEASE, is a great book! Books are always better to me than anything I’ll see come up on any of my social media accounts. No offence to my friends, but learning about just one concept, versus 10 people’s complaints for the day, just feels a little more worthwhile to be filling my mind and my heart with.   I hope you enjoy x

This week I spoke to Glenn Ridge about my slightly different take on the impending Bali execution – and then we chatted to Jayne Anderson about her book, Workin It Out

 

The Beginner’s Guide To Confronting Homelessness, my interview with Susie Cole and Glenn Ridge

Most of us are guilty of walking past a homeless person and choosing to look away rather than  take the time to ponder what might be the reality of that person’s life. We make judgements, we don’t want to be taken advantage of if they ask us for something, it seems too hard to know what to do, do I give them money, do I buy them something, so mostly we just walk on by.  The Rotary Club of Prahran hosted an insightful and thought provoking event this week, with a panel of people who work specifically with the thousands of homeless people around Victoria.  As Jo Swift from Kids Under Cover described, “we all know that one day in September, the AFL Grand Final…with a 105,000 people on average packed into the MCG, well imagine that this is the number of people who are homeless on an average night in Australia.”  A picture that’s hard to get out of your head isn’t it?  Homelessness is growing every day in this country, and I think we all need to confront our beliefs on this subject.  This is just a very small conversation I wanted to share that you might begin with, with yourself.  I will be doing something more in the near future to shed some more detailed light on this issue that we can’t keep walking past. I want to reveal what exactly the Sacred Heart Mission, The Salvation Army, Kids Under Cover and the Prahran Police are dealing with every day.  What they need us to know!  So for now, here is my interview with Rotary member Susie Cole, on my buddy Glenn Ridge’s Melbourne radio show…

The Heart’s Intuitive Intelligence. I’m just fascinated about what we don’t know about the heart

The wonderful and brilliant scientists over at the Institute of HeartMath have done some amazing work in shedding light on some very significant findings regarding the science of the heart.

The Institute of HeartMath is an internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization dedicated to helping people reduce stress, self-regulate emotions and build energy and resilience for healthy, happy lives. HeartMath tools, technology and training teach people to rely on the intelligence of their hearts in concert with their minds at home, school, work and play.

A large portion of their research has investigated heart and brain interaction. Researchers at the institute have examined how the heart and brain communicate with each other and how that affects our consciousness and the way in which we perceive our world.

Their research has shed light on a number of facts, one for example, is when a person is feeling really positive emotions like gratitude, love, or appreciation, that the heart beats out a very different message. They’ve been able to determine this by the fact that the heart beats out the largest electromagnetic field produced in the body, and they can gather data from it.

“Emotional information is actually coded and modulated into these fields. By learning to shift our emotions, we are changing the information coded into the magnetic fields that are radiated by the heart, and that can impact those around us. We are fundamentally and deeply connected with each other and the planet itself.” – Rolin McCratey , Ph.D, Director of Research at the Institute.
This is very important work, as again, it shows how the heart plays an important role far beyond what is commonly known. Did you know that your heart emits electromagnetic fields that change according to your emotions? Did you know that the human heart has a magnetic field that can be measured up to several feet away from the human body? Did you know that positive emotions create physiological benefits in your body? Did you know that you can boost your immune system by conjuring up positive emotions? Did you know that negative emotions can create a nervous system chaos, and that positive emotions do the complete opposite? Did you know that the heart has a system of neurons that have both short term and long term memory, and that their signals sent to the brain can affect our emotional experiences? Did you know that in fetal development, the heart forms and starts beating before the brain is developed? Did you know that a mother’s brainwaves can synchronize to her baby’s heartbeats? Did you know that the heart sends more information to the brain than vice versa?

All of these facts, published researched papers and more can be accessed at heartmath.org Above is a video from the institute about the intuitive intelligence of the heart. Definitely worth a look.   (this article is care of www.collective-evolution.com)
