What Parents Say About Heart-Love
Heart Love Testiminials
Syracuse, New York
• As a single dad, I have been struggling to raise a 12-year-old girl on my own for the last three years. I started using the Heart-Love `I AM’ Technique as a way to do something constructive with my daughter as well as spend more time with her. After 3 months of living and practicing with the Heart-Love Pillow, I find that the two have become inseparable. The techniques are easier to practice because Mangie (her Heart-Love Pillow) participates in the daily sessions, and she’s showing remarkable improvement in her journey to recover from the withdrawal and loneliness that followed her mother’s passing.
• The self-awareness exercises on this website require the plushies. My grandkids love decorating their heart plushie with smiley faces and post-it notes. The Heart-Love techniques seem more fun to them because they enjoy the playful aspects of the exercise. I don’t think they would have fully understood the principles of the Heart-Love connection if the plushies weren’t there to demonstrate all the techniques in such child-friendly ways. As a rule, they don’t touch their pillow outside of practice time, so as not to dilute its significance, and this makes the kids even more interested in doing a short, pillow ritual every day.
• I got a pillow for myself too, and the Heart-Love practices are benefiting me as an adult as much as my children. When I hold the pillow to my heart as I say my daily I AM affirmations, the feel of its soft, heart shape calms my busy mind and stops the mental chatter for a few minutes, so I can fully concentrate on the feelings of expansion and joy that comes from the utterance of every I AM statement. After 6 weeks of daily practice with my daughter, I am waking up every morning feeling more positive about the challenges of the day. So yes, the pillow is very effective for adults too!
