Step 4 Practical Intuition, Intention and Integration

Latest research at the Institute of HeartMath and many other centres points to the fact that stress relief and emotional regulation clear the path to heighted intuition. New studies suggest the heart indeed is connected to a source of intelligence that is not bound by the limits of time and space.

Ancient teachings from many diverse cultures hold that the heart is an access point to the wisdom of our soul or higher source. People have associated the intuitive, energetic heart with their “inner voice” throughout history. As we learn to slow down the mind and attune to our heart feelings, our natural intuitive connection can be expressed.
