Character educators or counselors should teach their students to sense the power of one's heart through Character education. This will enable each kid to grow into perfect human being who loves others and also who is being loved by all. The inside of your body is an accurate map of our solar system and the universe. Your heart is the sun and the center of your body system. Your organs are the planets, and just as the planets depend on the sun to remain in balance and harmony, so do all the organs in your body rely on your heart to remain in balance and harmony. Let us discuss how teachers can educate their children and make them understand the power of love and being loved through Character Education.
Scientists at the Institute of HeartMath in California have shown that feeling love, gratitude, and appreciation in your heart boosts your immune system; increases vital chemical production; increases physical vitality and vigor; reduces stress hormone levels, high blood pressure, anxiety, guilt, and suffer exhaustion; and improves glucose regulation in diabetics. Feelings of love also create a higher degree of harmony in the rhythm of your heart. HeartMath has shown that the Magnetic field of the heart is 5,000 times more powerful than the magnetic field of the brain, and reaches out several feet from our body.
Other scientists are trying to alter our understanding of the affect of love on our health, through experiments with water. What does water have to do with health? Your body is made up of 70% of water! The inside of your skull is 80% water!
Researches conducted in Japan, Russia, India, and the United States have discovered that when water is exposed to positive words and feelings such as love and gratitude, not only the energy level of the water increases, the structure of the water itself changes, making it perfectly harmonious. A higher positive feeling makes the water become more harmonious. And when it is exposed to negative emotions like hate, the energy level of the water decreases, and a frenzied change occurs, negatively affecting the structure of the water.
If human emotions can change the structure of water, can you imagine what your feelings are doing to the health of your body? The center of every cell is water, and each cell is completely surrounded by a layer of water. Can you imagine the impact of love and gratitude on your body? Can you imagine the power of love and gratitude to restore health? When you feel love, your love affects the water of the 100 trillion cells in your body!
Teach your students through Character education, to use the power of love for perfect health. To receive the health you want and love, you must give love! In the face of any sickness, give good feelings about health, because only love brings perfect health. You cannot give bad feelings about sickness and receive health. If you hate or fear a disease, you will be giving out bad feelings, and disease can never go away through bad feelings. When you give thoughts and feelings of what you want, your cells receive the full force of health. When you give negative thoughts and feelings of what you don't want, the force of health to your cell reduces! It doesn't matter if you feel bad about a subject that has nothing to do with your health; when you feel bad, you reduce the force of health to your body. But when you feel love for anything - for a sunny day, new house, friend, or promotion - you body receives the full force of health.
Academic instruction isn't the only responsibility teachers have in today's classrooms. More and more, teachers are being called on to teach students about values... things like making good decisions, the showing of respect, taking responsibility, choosing friends, and having a positive attitude. It's a responsibility that could be overwhelming, considering the limited hours available in a school day, the number of kids in the classroom, and the diversity of backgrounds and personalities each child represents.
