I have had so much pleasure connecting with members of the Interlake as they come together for festivals, fundraisers, rodeos and so much more. As mentioned in my first column, when I say keepin’ it green, I am not just referring to nature. I am also referring to the heart.

The heart chakra is a resonance-based energy station that is actually much stronger than our brains. Since 1991, the HeartMath Institute has researched scientific tools to help people bridge the connection between their hearts and minds and deepen their connection with the hearts of others. This is why we come together, because it feels good to be surrounded by likewise frequencies.

HeartMath’s research centre is currently focusing on studying different types of interconnectivity between people, their brains, each other, as well as the earth’s magnetic fields.

In a study that involved 1,600 Global Coherence Initiative members, they also found a number of significant effects of solar and geomagnetic activity on people’s mental functions and emotional states.

They are finding heart-brain communication is heart-based, as the heart is 5,000 times stronger magnetically than the brain. That means that when your heart senses something, it is telling your brain to compute and do the math, not the other way around.

How many times have you heard, “Just follow your heart”?

This is very true, especially when wanting to make friends.

If you haven’t heard of him, look up Richard Buckminster Fuller. He spent most of his life following his heart.

So did Nikola Tesla.  Look him up too.

Both wanted to free the human species from financial enslavement and believed that energy should be free.

Fuller was an inventor and visionary. He didn’t limit himself to one field, working as a ‘comprehensive anticipatory design scientist’ to solve global problems, according to the Buckminster Fuller Institute. His ideas and work continue to influence new generations of designers, architects, scientists and artists working to create a sustainable planet.

Nikola Tesla was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current electricity supply system. In lamens terms, he came up with what most people now know as the Tesla Coil.

There is now has an electric car company named after him.

Founded in 2003 by a group of engineers who wanted to prove that electric vehicles can be better, quicker and more fun to drive than gasoline cars, Tesla builds not only electric vehicles, but also infinitely scalable clean energy generation and storage products.

The company believes that the faster the world stops relying on fossil fuels and moves towards a zero-emission future, the better.

What’s most interesting though, is that while these men were alive, their ideas didn’t quite take off. Only now, over half a century after they have both passed on, are their ideas finally gaining ground.

There are so many good ideas out there and the best, in my opinion, are the ones that make the world a more comfortable place for our future generations.

With an Earthship going up in Myriad village in the RM of Armstrong, more solar panels appearing just south of Stonewall, I am excited to see what this generation has in store for our planet.

Do you, or does anyone you know, dream of making the world a better place?
