Giving from the Heart: Take the fear out of Giving and Receiving
Scientific studies show that giving from the heart, without strings attached or expecting something in return, results in the release of hormones such as oxytocin - also known as "the cuddle hormone".
Feelings of connection, gratitude and appreciation, abundance and the ability to give freely, are all associated with the creation and experience of a coherent heart field. The coherent heart field is central to experiencing health, happiness, personal empowerment and effectiveness, and overall well being.
Science has also found that giving with expectations of getting something in return, such as exchanging money for necessities, products, or services, activates the area of the brain associated with pain, disrupting the heart's energetic field, creating stress and feelings of separation from others.
Discovering these scientific findings left me with a challenging dilemma.
The purpose and mission of Heartcompass Enterprises and this website, Metaphysics For Life, is to create a coherent mind-heart experience and enhance the life of everyone who visits this site, or any of the other Heartcompass Enterprises websites, blogs, newsletters, etc.
Every time I write and build a page for this site, publish a newsletter, post a message, or add a video to the YouTube channel I experience heart-mind coherence, or what I like to call "A Mind With Heart".
This coherent energy is transferred to you through the words and images I publish online. You then take this coherent heart-mind energy with you, creating a positive effect on people you come in contact with while in this coherent state. Scientific research has confirmed this as well.
In this way, "a mind with heart", or heart-coherence which is a state of inner peace, intuitive intelligence, and personal effectiveness radiates out into society like a ripple in a pond, creating ongoing and cumulative beneficial effects.
However, we all still live in a money-based economy, and each one of us faces the challenge of creating and maintaining a coherent mind-heart field even as we deal with monetary issues on a daily basis.
~~ Giving and Receiving: We receive the world by giving our attention to it... In nature we do not observe exchange, only giving. The sun shines, the plants grow and make flowers and fruits, the animals eat the plants and make more creatures. It is all giving. Imagine what would happen if the sun started printing money and told the plants they must now exchange money for sunshine? Or if the sun gave the money to the plants, and the plants loaned the money to the bees and animals and said no food or nectar unless you give us back the dollars...with interest of course. How long do you think nature would survive?
~~ Your Mind On Money: How monetary systems affect your body, mind and spirit. Research is proving that the human mind on money creates an experience of separation from others and from the world we live in. ("Why Money Messes With Your Mind", New Scientist, March 2009)In truth, the money system is but a barrier to the natural and healthy giving and receiving that comes naturally to people living in an environment of abundance, freedom, and joy.
