Last Updated: July 28, 2019      RETURN TO THRESHOLD NOTES INDEX

This "Note" is one of a series where I give my ideas on aspects of Reiki and/or energy work. The pages are intended to give some "food for thought" and some are only my viewpoint. While a number of facts may be included, you should decide for yourself how much (if any) of the content feels right to you.

This Note shares some of the research I have been discovering concerning the New Science and the works of
"Three Science Amigos":  Gregg BradenDr. Joe Dispenza and  Dr. Bruce Lipton.  My thanks to the 2 Youtube pages that made the video excerpt available, and to Gregg Braden for his ongoing explorations and sharings.

Harmonize Heart and Brain is state of harmony that we create for ourselves in heart-brain coherence.

5 Steps to Learn to Trust Your Gut and Harmonize Heart and Brain – Learning The Language Of Resilience From The Heart

Step 1: Focus Your Heart
Action: Allow your awareness to move from your mind to the area of your heart.

Result: This sends a signal to your heart that a shift has taken place—you are no longer engaged in the world around you and are now becoming aware of the world within you.

Step 2: Slow Your Breathing
Action: Begin to breathe a little more slowly than usual, allowing five to six seconds for your inhale and exhale.

Step 3: Feel a Rejuvenating Feeling to Harmonize Heart and Brain
Action: To the best of your ability, feel a genuine sense of caring, appreciation, gratitude, or compassion for anything or anyone.

Result: The key to success here is for your feeling to be as sincere and heartfelt as possible. As described previously, it’s the quality of this feeling that fine-tunes and optimizes the coherence between your heart and your brain. While everyone is capable of this experience, it’s one of those processes that you may need to experiment with to find what works best for you.

Step 4: Ask Your Heart Intelligence a Question
Action: The previous three steps create the harmony between your brain and your heart that enables you to tap into your heart’s wisdom. As you continue to breathe and hold the focus in your heart, this is the time to ask your question.

Result: Heart intelligence generally works best when the questions are brief and to the point. Remember, your heart doesn’t need a preface or the history of a situation before the question. Ask your question silently as a single concise sentence and then allow your heart’s wisdom to respond in a way that works for you.

Step 5: Listen to Harmonize Heart and Brain
Action: Become aware of how your body feels immediately as you are asking your question. Make a note of any sensations such as warmth, tingling, ringing of the ears, and emotions that may arise. Everyone learns and experiences uniquely. There is no correct or incorrect way of receiving your heart’s wisdom. The key here is to know what works best for you.


RR Comments:  I have been using this technique for several weeks now, sometimes a few times during the day.  Thus far I have mostly just done the first 3 steps, but I find the sense of peace I achieve in the moment to be very calming, yet inspiring.  It often encourages me to begin to channel my guides to add to the moment, if only to join with their heart centered presence. The sensations do indeed last longer than the short meditation, and the effects last a good part of the day.  I find this is an even better method to use with the Light Technique for any purpose you might wish.

It doesn't take much imagination to realise this meditation/technique would be a great and effective addition to any Reiki (or other) wellness session.  You might simply walk a healing subject through it first and then begin your normal session.  It should accelerate the effects of your energy work.  You might also print a copy of the process and give it as part of your Reiki session. so your healing subject can continue to use it afterwards.

My wife and I have been following Gregg Braden's MIssing Links series on  This is a good site to keep up with his ongoing journey and be aware of his latest discoveries. And of course his books are available from many sources, including Amazon and Greg's web site.  Look for the three science Amigos video excerpts on youtube - try a search using "dispenza braden lipton" to get a wide range of their talks.
