Heart humility, that is, knowing who we truly are and accepting,
the world around
us with appreciation,
...is a powerful and
Heart humility can help
us to walk through this world with confidence, integrity and wisdom.
Heart humility does not require reserve or timid
postures in our interactions with others, but rather a quietness in
our being, a quiet knowingness of who we are.
Heart humility is being
honest with ourselves and others, and expressing our gratitude and
respect for all involved.
Often when people ponder humility, they think of monks, nuns or
other religious figures who have dedicated their lives to being meek
and self-effacing. It may be that way for those who elect that
lifestyle, but today humility has taken on a different meaning.
Few people in day-to-day
life aspire to be considered humble because of its association with
being weak and subservient, but that theory is changing.
There are countless
business articles that reference scientific studies showing that
those who manage themselves and others best are those who manifest
qualities of humility.
Humility is expressed this way in current business references:
you don't have all the answers.
Seeking advice or
ideas from others.
Engaging with and
accepting different points of view.
Being willing to
admit one's own imperfections.
Laying aside ego
and getting in the trenches.
Being open to

The benefits from
practicing this form of humility are earning the respect of friends,
family, and co-workers, along with more creativity and peace at the
end of the day.
Why...? Because they have
recognized that a self-centered ego is not what is needed to prosper
in today's rapidly changing environments, whether at work, social or
A note from Doc Childre, Founder of HeartMath Institute:
ego is not the boogie man, and with patience and
inner guidance it can be transformed into its higher vibrational
through the heart transforms the frequency of our ego nature and
brings it into resonance with the vibration of our true self.
For most of us, our
ego in its lower vibration has created problems along the way
that we've blamed on others and life. Our heart's guidance can
help to bring about a natural maturing process of our ego nature
at each stage of our increased awareness.
As we commit to making peace with our ego without condemning it,
then our heart's coaching will eventually transform it into the
ways it serves our highest best, and in perfect timing.
Don't throw your ego
out with the bath water. The ego becomes transformed
as it advances through the stages of reducing self-centeredness.
All aspects of our
nature, including our ego, are part of our divinity and play
important roles in learning to become our empowered best self."
Finding the balance
between humility and self-security in our interactions with others
is a way of life well worth cultivating.
But just as important, is
approaching your own self evaluations with humility and a
compassionate heart. This means handling whatever's going on inside
you with non-judgment and acceptance.
Anger, judgment, blame,
resentment, etc. - these are all stressful feelings that can be
softened, understood and dispelled, with a humble approach.
Humility is a higher
vibration that magnetizes intuitive clarity in our discernment
processes and advances us towards our best outcomes.
Has A Proactive Element
Those who possess humility are easy-going, tolerant, accepting,
gracious and caring.
A humble-natured person
serves a cause greater than their personal ambition. They do not see
themselves as the hub of the universe but choose to use any
influence they have for the greater good of others.
Every day millions of people actively engage in nurturing their
desire to make a difference while contributing to a greater good.
Many of the most notable
leaders who facilitated some of the biggest social changes on the
planet are those who have manifested true humility.
Dr. Martin Luther
the Dalai Lama,
...and other greats,
though mistreated in many ways, held their heart's vision with
humility, courage and poise.
Accessing our heart's discernment and guidance enables us to create

get caught up in stress and drain energy, we can feel like we're
