With Thanksgiving almost upon us (here in the US) it seems like an appropriate time to enhance and infuse your treatments with gratitude and appreciation. 

I’ve been familiar with the non-profit research and education organization HeartMath® for a number of years now and recently became a member. So, I’d love to share one of the simple techniques they recommend called Prep for Desirable Outcomes. 

When I read this, I realized it could be used to influence a positive outcome for our clients. This exercise pre-prepares you to be emotionally and mentally poised and self-secure before an upcoming situation, interaction of life event. 

Prep Exercise  

  • Identify an upcoming interaction (a client’s appointment)
  • Begin Heart-Focused BreathingTM. Focus your attention in the area of the heart. Imagine your breath is flowing in and out of your heart or chest area, breathing a little slower and deeper than usual. Find an easy rhythm that is comfortable.
  • As you continue heart-focused breathing, see or imagine yourself in the upcoming event.
  • Now radiate love and positive energy into your upcoming event; this creates a positive energy field that can increase clear thinking, inner poise and more flow in these interactions.
  • Add in gratitude and appreciation for this client using your services (I added this step but based on other HeartMath® exercises using these heartfelt emotions will only amplify positive vibrations.)

Being genuine in your Prep increases your capacity to remain calm, poised and in charge of your emotional actions and reactions if challenges come up. This especially reduces stress and energy drains.  

I invite you to practice this short, simple technique before each new appointment.
