I’m Dirk Terpstra, an Intuitive Speaker, Healer, and Founder of Coherence Hotspot. As a HeartMath® Certified Professional, my mission is to guide you towards a deeper connection with your authentic self, allowing you to blossom into your most magnificent version. Isn’t this a remarkable gift for both yourself and those around you?
Our society often ingrains the ’cause and effect’ principle, leading many to react to life’s circumstances. Yet, we all possess the potential to craft a remarkable and fulfilling life by embracing our true selves—an act akin to ‘causing an effect’ in quantum physics.
In my view, the key lies in slowing down, gaining self-awareness, and bridging the gap between your perceived self and your authentic essence. True peace, fulfillment, and value to others emerge when you embrace your inner honesty. Within, you’ll find beauty and all the answers you seek.
HEARTMATH® CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL
As a certified HeartMath® Trainer, I guide individuals and organizations in connecting with their authentic hearts, fostering healthier, more productive, and happier lives while building a promising future. Utilizing the potent yet simple tools from the Institute of HeartMath®, we can enhance coherence and resilience even on-the-go in your daily routine. More information about the training here.
Since 1991, the Institute of HeartMath® has delved into scientific research exploring the impact of the heart’s electromagnetic field on the brain and body. Their findings reveal that a ‘coherent’ heart rhythm yields numerous benefits, including enhanced energy, mental clarity, ease, and improved communication skills.
Consequently, the Institute has developed a series of tools and techniques with proven clinical effectiveness to establish coherence, inner balance, and notably lower stress hormones like cortisol. With consistent practice, the cumulative benefits magnify.
I apply these specialized insights in my private coaching sessions and public engagements, while also serving as a HeartMath® specialist for the Operational Stress Recovery Program in the Okanagan Valley—a program endorsed by the Canadian Veterans Advocacy.
REWIRE THE TRAUMATIZED BRAIN
Through my training The Neurobiology of Trauma with Bessel van der Kolk MD, I learned applying the latest strategies to speed healing and I help reduce symptoms for even the most traumatized clients. Bessel van der Kolk is a highly-respected neuroscientist and Professor of Psychiatry at Boston University Medical School. He is also the Medical Director of the Trauma Center.
GLOBAL COHERENCE HOTSPOTS
In 2018, I initiated coherencehotspot.com – a global platform to help create a higher level of consciousness in humans through building more coherent communities.
We apply the science based tools and techniques to create a coherent, social environment – There’s scientific evidence that heart-based human connections, will lead to intuitive solutions for global challenges and transformation of our world and our consciousness. Our global platform is endorsed and supported by HeartMath®.
DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR ME?
This feeling has now become a memory, and I know I can access it whenever I choose to. Communication with my family has improved, but also in interpersonal relationships in general. I am communicating from another place, more connected to my heart – It’s a wonderful gift! I know I have to keep practicing the heart coherence so that it becomes my natural way of being and acting. A close hug from the heart to you!
Shift from reacting to creating!
Secret to Life
I believe that the secret to life lies in hitting the brakes, really slowing down and learning to understand ourselves better. You can only be at peace and feel fulfilled, when you are honest with yourself and start closing the gap between who you appear to be and who you really are. You will then discover that you are beautiful.
