Q: What is the Purpose of Heart Speak?
A: To share positive thoughts and feelings throughout the world. We share GEMs (Great Energy Moments). A GEM is an audio recording about two minutes long which shares a Personal Story or Visualization, that is uplifting, inspirational, and profoundly positive.
Energy moves all around us. GEMs are a way to share that energy between people. It may take only one GEM or many GEMs, but we hope that you will enjoy what you hear.
Q: Is Heart Speak free?
Q: Will a GEM work for me?
A: GEMs do work. They have worked for the people who submitted them. We would not share them if we did not believe in them. Taking the two minutes to listen to a GEM is your choice. Your intentions are important. If you are open to aligning your thoughts and energy, just listening can be of great benefit.
Q: How often may I listen to a GEM?
A: There is no limit. As often as you want. Surrounding yourself with positive thoughts and energy is always beneficial.
Q: Where can I find out more about Heart Speak?
A: The About GEMs pages and the About Us pages of this website will give you an overview of what it’s all about.

Q: Are GEMs compatible with my computer, my tablet, my smartphone, or my portable audio player?
A: In general, yes. The audios can be heard on any device that can run an internet browser.
Note: you must be connected to the internet to play a GEM. You cannot play it offline. We do not support downloading of GEMs for later playback. Hence, a portable audio player cannot play a GEM unless it is connected to the internet and the Heart Speak website.

A: Use your internet browser. All access to GEMs is via the Heart Speak website. The website has been designed to be responsive, meaning that it will adapt itself to the screen on your device. Some of the text may be hard to read on a smartphone but you will be able to play and listen to GEMs easily. A Heart Speak Android app will be available soon, and for iPhone at a later date.
