It is clear that a deeper awareness and intelligence is required to create a Healthy Happy Harmonious and Prosperous society. Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to be aware, understand and regulate our emotions and is a key ingredient towards being Happy and Productive. Daniel Goleman reported on compelling breakthroughs from the fields of neuroscience and business, he found that those who excel in emotional intelligence achieve not only superior academic and business results, but also have higher levels of personal fulfillment and increased well-being.
In addition to EI research by the Institute of HeartMathis uncovering the important role of the heart’s intuition in balancing and managing our mental and emotional energy. Intuitive Intelligence (IntQ) is the ability to tune into the inspiration and guiding force within us. According to HEC Paris International Business school Intuitive intelligence is the ability to combine our analytical mind with our intuitive aptitude to solve problems in an innovative way and succeed in the new economy.
“Studies investigating the impact of HeartMath programs in the workplace have documented a wide range of organizationally relevant outcomes, including increases in productivity, job satisfaction, communication effectiveness, improvement in employee health and reductions in turnover.” (ref)
Abraham Maslow (1908-1970) an American Professor of psychology believed we are universally motivated by the same basic needs and that our needs can be arranged in a hierarchical fashion. Maslow theorized that individuals achieved Well-Being and Self-Actualization after completing a series of stages, starting with fulfilling the basic needs of food and water, safety and shelter, to finding respect and self-esteem. After these stages have been met the individual can begin to possess and achieve a deeper understanding of self. Maslow’s hierarchy below can be viewed as stages of Personal development:
We can clearly see the important role our Public sector services have in creating a platform and assisting us to satisfy our human needs and allow for the progression into higher levels of Well-Being and self-actualisation.
At the top of Maslow’s hierarchy Self-Actualization & Transcendence can be defined as humanity’s highest potential, self-realization and an understanding of Unity consciousness. Maslow defined this inherent and natural state as one of Well-Being with positive feelings of Joy, Serenity, Euphoria and an awareness of the Unity of all things. Maslow was sure that the more emotionally healthy we are, the greater the likelihood and frequency of these experiences in our daily lives.
We can clearly see that there are deeper levels of ourselves that we can become aware of and understand and in doing so we can gain greater self-awareness and intelligence. The Multiple Intelligence Model of Human Potential below illustrates these levels within us:
In addition to EI and IntQ defined above Physical Intelligence as defined by Maslow is our ability to understand and satisfy our physical needs, Cognitive Intelligence is our conscious ability to focus, understand, create and achieve our goals and finally self-actualised Divine Intelligence is the realization integration and understanding of one’s true authentic Soul nature and potential within.
Our Souls extend from a central Source of Light, the diagram illustrates the structure of consciousness and inherent source of light within us all:
David Bohm a British physicist believed that everything is connected and one unified whole. The diagram clearly illustrates our interconnectedness as our Souls extend from a central unifying Source of Light. It is this energy that animates and sustains our physical form. Fritz-Albert Popp a German physicist confirms the existence of particles of Light known as biophotons that transmit information within and between cells.The biophoton light is the mediator between the Body and Soul and when our light is flowing freely it leads to sustained positive emotions optimal health and well-being.
Research by the Institute of HeartMath shows the heart produces the body’s most powerful electromagnetic field, it is no coincidence that the Soul essence and Inner-Light of each person can be discovered within the Heart chakra. Valerie Hunt, a professor at the University of California discovered the chakra frequencies and has produced a scale of frequencies corresponding to state of mind and level of personal development. Similararly Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama has created instruments that verify the chakras and the flow of energy through the body.
Maslow’s Pyramid can be mapped to the Chakra System as a similar model of human development. As we mature and develop our consciousness the chakras open from the root chakra to the opening of the Crown chakra allowing for complete Self-realisation & Transcendence.
As a result of practices such as CBT and NLP people are much more aware of the Conscious and Sub-consciousness Mind within them. The current frontier in the field of Personal & Professional development is an awareness and understanding of our Superconscious Mind our Authentic Soul consciousness.
As Humanities awareness naturally continues to evolve existing Organisation Mission Statements, Objectives & Policies will continue to evolve for the benefit of all. The energy and values of the Heart & Soul are now integrating at an Individual & Organisational level for us all to play and equal role in the Creation of a Beautiful New World.
