Holding on to positive memories

 The sculptures of Michelangelo; the beauty, climate, and food of Tuscany; the whole experience of Italy: these are the positive memories that brighten the windiest March day. The feelings of appreciation in my heart held there even a short while change me.

Scientifically I know that my heart vibrates at a different frequency, which every cell in my body picks up. Because the electromagnetic field of my heart is about five thousand times more powerful than that of my brain, my brain is less likely to focus on worry and stress and more likely to focus on love and creativity.  I’ve read that my heart’s electromagnetic signal can be measured from six to ten feet away, so anyone near me can probably benefit from my trip to Italy, too.

What if everyone in the world would hold positive memories for a few minutes every day?  Would our world receive the healing it so desperately needs?

    What a beautiful Idea for both relishing wonderful memories and also being kind to self which flows out to others…

    Thinking of positive memories definitely makes a difference in my disposition – which leads to being extra nice to others or simply smiling more! It seems simple, but I think you are on to something Sr. Valerie!

    Wow! What a beautiful thought! Makes me wonder how far people could feel that “electromagnetic signal” from Jesus’ heart! No wonder it’s such a blessing to be in the presence of LOVE-ly people!
