It's You, Guru: the why

We selected It’s You, Guru for the title of our website, mostly because it was available as a .com and it was available on Instagram and Facebook. I kid. But those things DID help us finalize the name - for sure.


We wanted the focus of our business to be on YOU and how you do have the answers that you need.

My high school physics teacher was the worst (at least I thought so at the time). Actually, I think he was a certified genius. That was the rumor anyway. The class was impossible. I’m not sure I ever really knew what was going on. He would lecture, assign us homework and then let us work on it in groups. If we got stuck on something, we would send a groupmate up to the desk to ask him for help. He would just say ‘you know’. We were all in a constant state of frustration and eye rolling. I am not sure how any of us passed that class.

While I am certain, that is not the best way for a teacher to run a classroom, I can say, maybe he wasn’t so wrong after all. While we might not know all the answers to physics problems, we do know what is best for us… deep down.


The Heart Math Institute did a study test scores of high school students who were trained in heart mind coherence and a control group who were not trained. The group trained in heart-mind coherence improved significantly on their standardized tests compared with the control group. You can find the study here.


According to HeartMath, the heart sends more signals to the brain than the brain sends to the heart. They describe heart coherence and how the heart and brain react to stress as follows:


“During stress and negative emotions, when the heart rhythm pattern is erratic and disordered, the corresponding pattern of neural signals traveling from the heart to the brain inhibits higher cognitive functions. This limits our ability to think clearly, remember, learn, reason, and make effective decisions. (This helps explain why we may often act impulsively and unwisely when we’re under stress.)

In contrast, the more ordered and stable pattern of the heart’s input to the brain during positive emotional states has the opposite effect—it facilitates cognitive function and reinforces positive feelings and emotional stability.


This means that learning to generate increased heart rhythm coherence, by sustaining positive emotions, not only benefits the entire body, but also profoundly affects how we perceive, think, feel, and perform.”


If we can learn to come into coherence in our heart, we are more capable of making better decisions. Deep down, we do know. We just allow doubt, stress and outside influences to get the better of us!


It’s You, Guru is a source for learning how to be your own guru.


We have courses, videos services and more. Our most popular service is BQH (Beyond Quantum Healing). Part of BQH is to do a heart-mind coherence practice to help you settle into your own heart so you can access your deeper wisdom.


Guru Gainz,
