Benefits of Meditation

Benefits of Meditation

The benefits of meditation are constructive, healing, positive and countless. A multitude of studies have demonstrated that those who meditate on a regular basis have experienced a positive impact in their lives.

From reduced stress and pain management to increased immune response and decreased aging process; and from improved self-esteem, concentration and creativity to developing will power and higher intelligence, the benefits of meditation are truly innumerable. However, one of the most compelling reasons to practice meditation is that the process itself is uplifting and inspiring.

Meditation is not dependent upon the end result, but the act of meditation itself is a sublime and blissful one; an experience that transports yourself to a state of contentment and serene awareness during the practice of meditation itself, not just as a result at the end of the session.

Actually, from a philosophical viewpoint, the means equals the end result; thus, the meditation session has truly no beginning and no end.

As members of the human race, we all share a constant onslaught of stress on a day to day basis. This is the price we pay for living in a high paced world. We get bombarded by a variety of energies in the form of news, noise pollution, arguments, television programming, and disgruntled people.

In order to counteract this enormous and overwhelming force of negativity and distress, we must seek time to dedicate to ourselves, time to reconnect with our Higher Power, and to bring ourselves to balance. Meditation offers us a way to establish that connection to replenish our energy, relax our soul, cleanse our bodies, and realign ourselves with our true inner self.

In earlier times, people lived surrounded by nature in their daily routines and throughout their existence. Back then, there were no artificial sound vibrations from cars, telephones or machines; there was no stress caused by the rat race or disease resulting from the metropolitan industrial complexities that are part of our environment today.

On the contrary. There was the sound of water, the hum of the wind, the chirping of birds, the beauty of the stars at night, the warmth of sun rays, and the scent of flowers to name a few. There were natural tempos in every aspect of life, as people planted seeds, nurtured them into harvest, and as they observed the cycles of nature they felt a connection to Mother Earth.

Today, many people live their entire lives without even being aware of or contacting nature in a direct way. We live in artificially controlled climates, we eat pre-packaged foods, and we constantly are divorcing ourselves from our natural origins and our organic, original pace of life.

This is why the practice of meditation is rapidly becoming a necessity — more than an option.

Meditation allows us a simple, convenient, free and portable technique to enter into those lost natural rhythms and vibrations, by closing out the world around us temporarily as we let go of the sensations that the physical body perceives in daily life, and clear the mind of all the problems and artificial stress it has gathered knowingly or unknowingly during the course of life.

There is no doubt about it. The benefits of meditation are huge. It costs nothing, it has no harmful side effects, and it won’t add calories or cholesterol to your body either. Moreover, it’s impossible to meditate and be upset at the same time… how wonderful is that?

The human body is a complex and amazing creation.

Meditation provides an eminent sense of well-being, often compared to a natural “high”that is more powerful than those induced by artificial and harmful substances. This is because the brain produces natural drugs that are hundreds of times more potent than pharmaceutical narcotics.

As one meditates, the body secretes certain hormones and chemicals that provide an incredible rush of energy and happiness, and this is only one of the multiple amazing benefits of meditation. This fact alone is proof for some of the most significant benefits of meditation, which can be embraced for enlightenment and health.

Some people use meditation in place of, or in addition to, psychotherapy. Others find it most valuable as a tool to enhance sports or work performance, or to increase the memory and other mental or physical functions.

Yet others rely upon it to help them deal with grief or with the aftermath of trauma or tragedy, and to regain contentment and appreciation for life’s beauty. And there are those who use meditation as a creative tool to inspire them in the arts. Meditation gives us stronger and more sustainable vigor for sexual energy as well as serenity, as it provides a restfulness that is comparable to deep and exceptionally restful sleep.

There are countless reasons to meditate, what is yours?

Regardless of your personal reason, when you commit and dedicate some time out of your busy life to pause and drink from the mental oasis of meditation, you will be contributing to making our world a better and more peaceful and harmonious place for all.

Perhaps you think this is a bit exaggerated, but I assure you it is not. There have been many studies that have proven this. One such example is a recent experiment that took place at the Robert W. Coleman Elementary School in Baltimore. The results were amazing, to say the least. Instead of detention and punishing disruptive kids or sending them to the principal’s office, the Baltimore school has something called the Mindful Moment Room. I’ll let you read about this here. You’ll be amazed!

Now you see why I say that as you enjoy the benefits of meditation, you are helping the world!

Thank YOU for your contribution!

 

Lucid Dreaming

Exploring

Lucid Dreaming

Do you remember all the hype around Virtual Reality about 10 years ago?

If you believed what the experts were saying back then, we would be spending our time today exploring alternative worlds and having a lot of fun with adventures as special agents, powerful warriors or even superheroes … all as if we were really living the experience right there and then.

Sadly, technology has not gotten quite there yet … but some exciting prototypes are being tested as I write this (Dec, 2016.) However, there are people who enjoy adventures in virtual reality one, two or more times per week, and without fancy technology. These fortunate few have learned to harness the power of lucid dreaming.

Unlike usual dreams which can be hazy, strange and frequently forgotten as soon as you wake up, lucid dreams are very different and quite special because when you dream in this fashion you are actually awake inside your dream!

In other words, imagine this: You are warm in your bed and start dreaming. Only you know you’re dreaming, yet the things you are dreaming about are ‘out of the ordinary.’ Nevertheless, the world around you seems as ‘real‘ as the one you’re in now, as you are reading this article. Exciting, uh?! But you might be asking…

Why Would I Want to Learn Lucid Dreaming?

A sleeping person who is dreaming lucidly knows that he(she) is awake inside the dream and can even remember the dream, totally or partially after he awakens. The amazing thing is that those who have developed this amazing ability are able to control or redirect the outcomes of their dreams. This could be compared to plotting a sci-fi movie in which you get to decide what you do (how about flying like Superman?) and how the story ends.

Now, think about it… This is HUGE because you can manipulate your dream to your liking and experience the dream ‘as if’ it was a reality which helps you modify limiting beliefs, handle fears, achieve seemingly impossible things, and reprogram your subconscious mind to succeed at anything you want!

Imagine the possibilities!

Let’s say that you had fear of heights and that you have trained yourself to lucid dream. You go to sleep and through a series of prompts, you begin to dream lucidly.

This means that you are awake within your dream. Then, you purposefully picture yourself climbing a ladder in total confidence. You can add as many details as you want and see yourself totally confident, fearless, courageous, and enjoying the experience. Since your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between yes and no and can’t discern reality from fantasy, you will be living and feeling the experience as if you were actually there.

Think about it… you can use lucid dreaming as a self-development technique to achieve goals, enhance your self-growth and become the person you want to be, easier, faster, and  having fun… almost effortlessly!

Types of Lucid Dreaming

There are two ways with which lucid dreaming begins. The first one is called the dream-initiated lucid dream. It refers to a person who is asleep, starts dreaming and then begins to be conscious of the fact that he is dreaming while being able to remain asleep. The second one is called the wake-initiated lucid dream. In this one the person is still fully awake yet falls into a state of dream and can ‘live‘ the experiences as if they were real as well.

How To Lucid Dream

The good news is that everyone can develop the ability to dream in this fashion. There are simple methods and techniques to develop the ability to lucid dreaming which have been proven to be effective and safe for many people. To start, all you need to do is believe that you will be able to achieve the goal of gaining this ability, and you will.

Here are some points to learn and follow:

  • Practice Reality Checks

If you are in a state of disbelief about something that you consider out of the ordinary or abnormal, check it out against something that is real. That’s how you’ll know you are dreaming. For instance, grab a pencil with your right hand right now and try to pierce the palm of your left hand with it. You will feel pressure and if you do it long enough, you will feel pain. This will indicate that you are awake. If you were dreaming, you’d be able to pierce the palm of your left hand and see the pencil going straight through, with no resistance, blood or pain.

The practice of reality checks while awake will eventually leak into your dreams and will become the signal that let’s you know you are actually asleep. When this becomes habitual, you will start to dream about this and soon conclude that indeed you are dreaming. Make it a habit to practice reality checks like these while you go about your day.

  • Write Your Dreams in a Journal

As soon as you are awake, recall your dream and write it down with precision; such as place, people, events, facts, and what exactly happened; write down as much details as you remember. Don’t wait long as significant points become blurry soon after awakening.

When you keep a dream journal, you will soon discover that there are common dream patterns or details that are present in your dreams.

This will help you first identify if the dream is lucid, and then it will help you fall into this kind of dream on purpose and more often.

  • Concentrate on Dreaming Lucidly

Before falling asleep, focus your attention and concentration on having a lucid dream. Soak your mind deeply in the subject by reading, learning, and thinking about it as much as possible. Talk about this interest of yours with others and make it a subject of curiosity and exploration so it becomes a frequent instance in your mind.

  • Establish Your Own Sleeping Schedule

Lucid dreaming can be induced by establishing a sleeping time and pattern, because as with any habit, the more you do it the more predictable it becomes. So plan to determine the best time for you to go to sleep and stick to it to train your mind to fall asleep at a certain time and follow patterns with ease in this manner.

  • Create a Personal Reminder

A personal reminder can be a small object to help you confirm that you are awake after having had a lucid dream. It will be your clue to determine whether you are indeed awake or not. When you see and feel this object in your hand, it creates a signal that prompts you to realize that you are indeed awake.

Here’s an example of this

If you watched the mind-bending movie “Inception” by acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan and leading actor Leonardo DiCaprio playing the character of Cobb, you’ll recall that at the end of the movie the viewer is left to make his/her own conclusions based on perception and interpretation of what happens to the spinning top.

Was Cobb still dreaming when he went back to his children or was the spinning top about to fall over and confirm the scene was an awaken reality? The top was the signal (personal reminder) that Cobb used throughout the movie to determine whether he was awake or dreaming because no top will spin indefinitely, unless it is in a dream.

  • Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreaming (MILD) Technique

This technique was introduced by Stephen Laberge, a psycho-physiologist and leader in the scientific study of lucid dreaming, and founder of “The Lucidity Institute.” The technique allows you to recall your dream in as much detail as possible and becoming conscious that you are dreaming by repetitively telling yourself that you are dreaming.

Of course, these are  a few basic principles of this practice. To become very good at lucid dreaming, more learning, understanding and practice are needed. Experts can do this effectively and at will, and the benefits are only limited to one’s imagination. Just think about this… anything is possible when you are dreaming, and the subconscious mind does not differentiate between fact or fiction… what would your plan be if you were to dream lucidly tonight?

Akashic Records

Learn to Read

The Akashic Records

It’s been said that knowledge is power, and in the case of the Akashic Records, I couldn’t agree more… Imagine having a library of unlimited information at your disposal, documented information that contains everything that has happened or will ever happen in the whole history of human kind… what will you do with that information?

Getting secrets to re-establish your health? Attain resources to gain financial stability for yourself and your family? Getting feedback on a particular issue that can save an endangered species? Learning the reason behind a great mystery of the past? Preventing a future pandemic? Attract favorable situations to your life experience based on what you learn from your ancestors?

Truly… What would you do with such an unlimited power?

I first learned about the Akashic Records back in 2002, when I read the Biography of Edgar Cayce, a renowned American psychic who had the special ability to get information through a state of altered consciousness. This ability enabled him to download -allegedly from The Records- answers to specific questions to help people in a variety of situations, especially health related issues. Needless to say, I found it fascinating; however, I could not find too many details on the Akashic Records back then.

A few years later, I came across a different manuscript that not only mentioned the Records, but shared more detail about them. I learned that the term Akashic derives from a Sanskrit word, Akasha, which means “boundless time and space”. Akasha translates literally into ether, a substance that Wallace D. Wattles referred to as the ‘Formless Stuff‘ or ‘Original Substance‘ from which the Universe was made of –but not all of it was used in forming the Universe. The spaces within, from and in between the things of the visible matter are also permeated with this ‘stuff’, making it the raw material of everything, everywhere… (ref. The Science of Getting Rich, chapter 3, 1910)

Thus, the Akashic Records are a component of this ether; they are just in the unseen; in that part of the invisible Universe that is all around us. In these Records, every single thing that has happened and will happen has been documented, just like a mega history book that encompasses ALL times.

The Akashic Records can be described as a mega computer or huge file cabinet where every thought, emotion, intention, and action ever experienced by human kind has been documented.

Other names for Akashic Records are ‘The Book of Life‘ or ‘Heavenly Library‘. By these names we can determine that these Records have a powerful influence over the present day. Deeds, emotions and events that occurred in the past have a large connection with the ‘hows’ and the ‘whys’ of the present time.

In other words, the present is a consequence of the past; and the information within is totally unbiased, matter-of-fact, and non-judgmental. What we have done in the past, has been recorded and has become a compass that determines the probabilities of whatever we attract into our present time. This goes beyond individuality, as it affects us all as the human race.

From the Akashic Records emerge myths, beliefs, symbols and the well known archetypes of Carl Jung. Jungian Archetypes –as they are called- are “ancient or archaic images that derive from the collective unconscious”; the innate universal psychic predispositions common to all human kind.

This is not to be confused with intuition or instinct. Jung believed that instinct is “an unconscious physical impulse toward actions while the archetype is the psychic counterpart”. Once we are in-the-know, it becomes quite obvious that without these Records, human evolution –and survival- would not have happened and could not had been  possible… to this day.

It is also said that the Akashic Records are part of the Universal Mind. So when you learn to access them, it is like getting loving guidance from the One for the future. Moreover, when these records are combined with the four elements (earth, air, fire and water), they symbolize the five human senses: smell, sight, hearing, touch and taste.

Many psychics have talked about the Akashic Records. One of them was Helena Blavatsky, a Russian psychic (1831 to 1891), who described the Records as “the very core or essence of all types of energy, whether it be physical energy, psychic energy or even spiritual energy“. According to her, the very seeds of creation are within the Akashic Records, which are activated by the will of the Divine Spirit.

So… how can you benefit from this knowledge?

The Akashic Records are about absolute TRUTH, and as such they are meant to be explored. They can provide you with insight on your past, present, and future. Once you have access to every thought, feeling, and experience of human kind throughout limitless time, you can work on recreating your own life experiences.

For instance, if you feel you could have a block that is preventing you from achieving success, you could look into the cause of this block it in your past.

From this ‘knowing‘ you can get a better understanding of the block and know what to do to set yourself free from fear of failure or fear of success.

Here’s another example… If you find yourself picking the wrong person for a romantic relationship time and again, you can learn the reason behind that behavior and from that point, you can let go of the past experience that has you stuck in order to start facilitating meetings of possible right partners for you.

In this manner, the Akashic Records can become your book of answers. Once you learn to ask ‘why‘ you’ll find the answers by reading the Records.

The Akashic Records are THE origin of and for everything. They are a trusted source for truth. Just as Edgar Cayce used to read them, we can learn to access these records through states of altered consciousness, such as hypnosis. You don’t have to be a psychic or have special abilities to access, read and learn from the Akashic Records!

The possibilities are limitless… think about it! Imagine being able to peek into time -past and future- and see everything that has ever happened in the Universe. Picture being able to get reasons and explanations to mysteries of human history, or to get the understanding behind a profound event that altered history and even your own life… Imagine that!!

It is like becoming ONE with the Universe! Once you know how to access this power, every single thought, idea, event or intention that has ever existed will be at your fingertips for you to improve upon yourself and the world at large.

Remote Viewing

Remote Viewing

and Remote Influencing

 

Time travel, artificial intelligence, teleportation and mind reading have fired the imagination of numerous science fiction authors since the early part of the 19th century, when –according to many- the very first science fiction novel was written. Can you guess it? None less than Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley!

By the mid-nineteenth century, para-psychological research intended to explain paranormal phenomena like telepathy, telekinesis and other ESP, but because these activities could not be replicated or understood in terms of known scientific principles, they were regarded as weird, abnormal and even uncanny, and eventually got discarded by the general public as non-sense pseudoscience.

However, with science making significant advances in recent years – especially in the field of quantum mechanics and quantum physics, mounting evidence appears to support the existence of a world that is imperceptible by the five senses, where the seemingly impossible can be possible, and where the unlimited power of the human mind is becoming more evident than ever.

Thus, even though parapsychologists have long accepted the fact that thoughts and ideas cannot be passed from one mind to another directly, they believe that telepathy –as well as other paranormal activities, are not only real but at work in most of us at any given time (if you have ever thought of a friend or relative that you have not heard of in a long time and then received a phone call from them ‘out of the blue’, you have experienced this first hand.) More importantly, parapsychologists believe that it is just a matter of time for human beings to get control of brain’s abilities.

To support this, neuroscientists are becoming more agreeable to the fact that there is more science than fiction in these precepts as they keep on researching and discovering that there is more than meets the eye. Will this be the marriage between science and fiction? Only time will tell, but for now, let’s explore something very exciting and available to all of us, right now…

Remove Viewing and Remote Influencing

When I first heard about RV and RI, I thought it was a term coined after an Isaac Asimov’s novel, but once I looked into it, I found a handful of fascinating facts.

Remote viewing refers to the ability to see without using our eyes with the purpose of acquiring information from an object or scene at a distance. This is done using the power of the mind, bypassing the sense of sight and allowing the mind to perceive and ‘see‘ regardless of space and time.

This process was first tested and used by the U.S. Federal Government. The goal of the “Stargate Project” –as it was coined- was to determine the potential of this psychic phenomenon for use in military applications. Unfortunately, the project was discarded in 1995, stating “lack of documented evidence.

As I kept reading, I came across Gerald O’Donnell, President and Founder of ARVARI, the Academy of Remote Viewing and Remote Influencing. Mr. O’Donnell, is an Hypnotherapist, who also holds MBA, Mathematics B.Sc. and Computer Science M.Sc. degrees.

His expertise in remote viewing earned him recognition as one of the world’s top technical commodities expert by Paine Webber and Bache Co. and back in the 80’s he was approached by a European Intelligence Agency to set up an experimental program on mental espionage.

It was during his work that he discovered that by using specific mental techniques, he was able to conquer time and space as stipulated in the non-locality theorem of quantum physics, which allowed him “to experience the perceived past and the probable future.

With this realization, Mr. O’Donnell decided to retire from the Intelligence Community and made it his mission to teach these principles to individuals for their personal growth, as well as on a global scale, with the intention to create healthier realities and a better world overall.

The techniques that he has developed and teaches to his students prove that limitations are a perception of the mind; thus, there are no limitations but only those we impose on ourselves. Gerald O’Donnell shows us that the path to live a happier existence is available to all of us. The only requirement is to learn to use our mind to our advantage and in the benefit of all. Fascinating, don’t you think?

Now the question is… what would you do if you could not only ‘see’ at a distance, regardless of time and space, but were able toinfluence‘ your future? Impossible, you say?

I invite you to further explore this possibility, and to learn more about Gerald O’Donnell and his work by visiting his virtual Academy site, ARVARI. Prepare to get your mind opened to the possibilities and then, you can draw your own conclusions…


 

The Breathing Technique

The Breathing Technique

“Life is absolutely dependent upon the act of breathing.
Breath is, literally, Life.”

Breathing is an innate physiological function common to all of us living beings. Not only do we take it for granted but believe it is not something that needs to be learned. After all, breathing is the very first thing we do when we come into this world and the very last right before we leave.

Taking this into consideration, it’s safe to affirm that babies are the most skilled human beings when it comes to breathing properly. Since they do not have present problems or worries about their future, they are mainly happy to exist and they show exactly that with every breath they take.

Why is it then that we unlearn how to breathe properly as we grow older?

As strange as it sounds, most of us do not know how to breathe properly. Shallow breathing –reaching only the upper chest- tends to be the norm for the majority of people, especially if we live a rushed and stressful lifestyle.

As we experience a variety of emotions every single day, each of these feelings generate a reaction that in many cases goes unperceived. From fear of disapproval and rejection to guilt, anger, sadness, worry and concern, these and other stressors create emotions that affect our physiology and the way we breathe, on a moment by moment basis. Just observe an angry person’s breathing pattern and you will witness this first hand!

To make matters worse, some people experience breathing problems due to already existing health conditions such as sleep apnea, allergies, excess weight, COPD, and asthma among others. When you add to these conditions the effects that emotions have on breathing patterns, it’s easy to see how many individuals are breathing-deficient.

“The developed man is the ‘all-around man’ who recognizes body, mind and spirit and renders to each its due. Neglect of either is a mistake which must be rectified sooner or later; a debt which must be repaid with interest.”

When we think about these implications, the importance of proper breathing becomes obvious.  Even for people who are otherwise healthy, breathing properly may mean the difference between feeling tired and sleepy all day long versus feeling vibrant and ready to tackle their daily tasks.

Let’s review a handful of effects that shallow breathing has over our physical health.

Physiologically speaking, improper breathing causes hypo-ventilation which prevents proper oxygenation of the blood. As muscle cells are deprived from oxygen, fatigue, stiffness, pains and aches, sleepiness, and exhaustion become common.

Moreover, when brain cells suffer from lack of oxygen, the results are nervousness, irritability, headaches, foggy thinking, and difficulty with concentration and problem-solving.

If this is not addressed, this condition can spring into on-going lack of motivation and lack of vitality, and eventually it can turn into depression. As if that was not enough, there are some aspects of improper breathing that are not commonly known or discussed, even though these can profoundly impact the overall health of a person in a more profound way. We’re talking here about the spiritual, psychic, and mental aspects of breathing.

From the spiritual viewpoint, breathing is a process of exchange in which we ‘take in’ from the universe, and we give back to it with every single breath. It is a rhythmic exchange of ‘Chi‘ or energy, a basic and natural part of the life and world we all share.

And it goes even further. When a person breathes properly, he/she is able to take in and capture the energy from the surrounding environment and can send focused prana to a specific organ in his/her body with the purpose of making it stronger and more invigorating. If you have ever practiced Qi-Gong, you know what I’m referring to. This is an extremely powerful technique to help the healing process and/or to keep the body functioning at peak performance.

“One who has mastered the science of storing away prana, either consciously or unconsciously, often radiates vitality and strength which is felt by those coming in contact with him, and such a person may impart this strength to others, and give them increased vitality and health. What is called ‘magnetic healing’ is performed in this way, although many are not aware of the source of their power.”

Now let’s discuss the psychic side of breathing. When you breathe properly you can literally recharge your vital energy and even learn to project your healing thoughts toward others. You can also learn to do this at will by just using the power of breathing to accumulate and then release prana with a specific intention and target.

As such, breathing can be used in conjunction with Reiki for distance healing purposes. You can influence others at a distance giving that your motives are pure and of good will. When you combine deep breathing with the power of thoughts, you can also charge water to enhance its hydrating and natural healing properties. How amazing is that?!

Lastly, there’s the mental influence that breath exerts. Not only can the body be controlled by the mind under the direction of the will, but the mind itself can be trained and cultivated by the exercise of the controlling will, all by using proper breathing. From self-confidence, to self control and increased mental power, the advantages are diverse and exciting.

“The Occidental teachings show that the physical health depends very materially upon correct breathing. The Oriental teachers not only admit that their Occidental brothers are right, but say that in addition to the physical benefit derived from correct habits of breathing, Man’s mental power, happiness, self control, clear-sightedness, morals, and even his spiritual growth may be increased by an understanding of the Science of Breath.”

As you’ve learned, the benefits of proper breathing are huge, and they influence every part of your being. This is a powerful reason for us all to dedicate time to re-learn (or remember?) how to properly breathe as when we were babies. Fortunately, it is not difficult at all.

The “Hindu Yogi Science of Breath” a complete manual of the Oriental Breathing Philosophy of physical, mental, psychic and spiritual development will provide you not only with the facts, but with exercises that you can easily practice on your daily life.

All it takes is learning the how and then give it some practice. You do not need to learn yoga or assume any particular position to properly breathe. In due time, it will become second nature to you and you will be breathing properly as you go about your day. Give it a try. Your body, mind and soul will thank you accordingly

“The atoms of the human body are in constant vibration. Unceasing changes are occurring. In a few months there is almost a complete change in the matter composing the body, and scarcely a single atom now composing your body will be found in It a few months hence. Vibration, constant vibration. Change, constant change.”

All quotes on this page were taken from “Hindu-Yogi Science of Breath” by Yogi Ramacharaka. Inspired? Get the book by clicking on the image below, and re-learn to breathe for emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being!

Crystal Healing

Crystal Healing

When I first heard about crystal healing, I was skeptical to say the least. After all, I had been trained into Western Medicine, so I disregarded it as pseudoscience. Years later, I came across information that has opened my mind to the possibilities especially when it comes to this kind of alternative healing. I’d like to share with you what I’ve learned about the crystal healing technique as well as its benefits.

Crystals, gems and stones are natural formations. They hold different energy vibrations according to size, color and type. Ancient cultures used crystals in healing practices for a variety of ailments and conditions.

Crystals are used to this day as a non-invasive therapeutic technique by using their natural properties to balance polarities and raise vibrations with the purpose of harmonizing the state within the mind, body, and soul.

It is due to their unique structure that each crystal resonates at a different frequency and has the power to alter frequencies within the body’s organs and structures. When placed above the body, a crystal’s frequency can help restore balance and bring stability to the body’s energy system. This facilitates the awakening of our healing abilities from within.

In his book titled “Power vs. Force: The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior“, Dr. David Hawkins talks about how consciousness can be measured in a scale from 1 to 1000. While Dr. Hawkins didn’t create his “Map of Enlightenment” for healing purposes, he clearly states that the higher up the scale a person is, the more mastery of life is achieved; therefore, ultimate happiness and bliss are achieved at a higher vibration and consequently, health can also be attained moving up this scale, as a person cannot live in total happiness unless he(she) is healthy.

The interesting point here is that energy and vibrations have been the cause of studies for many years, and the conclusions are similar in nature: In order to live a healthy and balanced life, the energy must be maintained at high vibration. Apparently, crystals can help raise a person’s vibrations and as such, restore the energy necessary to recover health.

The crystal healing methodology is practiced by placing various types of crystals on different parts of the body that correspond to the chakras in order to generate an “Energy Grid“. The crystals used are chosen by the practitioner according to their properties and colors, and depending on the patient’s condition. Then, they are placed over or swept over specific points through the body alongside the spine and forehead.

Many crystals are made available for healing. Some of them include: Amethyst, Ametrine, Angelite , Beryl, Bloodstone, Blue lace agate, Calcite, Charoite, Copal, Copper, Dolomite, Jade, Jasper, Sulphur, Tiger eye, Zircon, Quartz, Labradorite, Opal, Pyrite, Tourmaline, Vivianite, and many others.

The benefits of healing using crystals are numerous. For instance, amethyst and amber can be used to heal headaches because their frequency is that of peace.

Moonstone can be used for an upset stomach and red, orange and yellow crystals can be used to restore energy.

If you pay close attention, you will see that the ailments, gemstone colors and chakras are interrelated. For instance, the base chakra or Muladhara is represented with the color red, so crystals of this color bring the jolt in energy necessary for grounding and stability, which is what this chakra represents. However, since the human body is complex, there are several factors that must be considered, such as the cause of the sickness or imbalance, as well as the degree or intensity of it.

Crystal healing can work beautifully to free the body from stress, and -in many cases- when relaxation is achieved, the side benefit can also release physical pains and aches. Crystals are also used to absorb negative energies that can derive from depression and anxiety, as well as disrupted energies in a home where conflict arises often.

As you have seen, a treatment with crystals is as unique as every person or situation, and must be determined based of the individual’s specific issues and circumstances. As natural elements of Mother Nature, an amazing feature of crystals is that they have the ability to hold on to energy and create specific vibrations continuously. For this reason, crystal healing goes beyond a few sessions with a practitioner. Crystals can be worn daily according to your needs and as you go about your life. One example of this that can help reduce mental stress is wearing a jade in a necklace. The shade of green in a jade crystal calms the nervous system and helps you focus the mind.

Below listed are some of the benefits of crystals when used for healing:

  • Pain management
  • Increase healing speed after surgery or trauma
  • Strengthen immune system
  • Insomnia and other sleep disorders
  • Mental trauma, and other stress related problems
  • Increase self-confidence
  • Maintain peace of mind and balance relationships with others
  • Good source of positive energy when kept in the premises of the house
  • Get rid of fatigue and lethargic symptoms
  • When crystals are kept in the study room, it helps children balance their energy and concentration/study skills.

Healthy Aging

Healthy Aging and Positive Thinking

Many people believe they lack the strength and power to do certain things, especially as they grow older. They don’t realize that their very thinking in this manner may be responsible for their results, at least partially.  I’m not denying that certain people have real limitations. What I’m stating here is that most of our habitual thinking may be holding us back from achieving much more than we do. This truth applies to every aspect of life and to every age. Thus, it certainly applies to keeping healthy and strong all the way to the golden years. Are you with me so far?

It is very possible to gain motivation with the intention to live a healthier life at any age. One simple and very effective way to start changing your thoughts, is by stating and reaffirming “I can do it” with certainty and determination and moving into action right away. Believe me when I tell you that it works. Give it a try; you may surprise yourself. Keep in mind that -as Napoleon Hill stated- whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Self-belief is at the culprit of most everything in life. Having said that… do you believe in your power to reach your golden years in sound mental, emotional and physical health?

Here are a couple of ideas that you can implement right away to live healthy now and all the way into the winter of your life:

There are 3 basic pillars for healthy living: diet, exercise and attitude. Of course not smoking, no drinking, and abstaining from other vices, play an important role as well, but for the purpose of this article, let’s cover exercise and attitude.

Keeping skeletomuscular health is one of the culprits to healthy aging, and movement is a must to prevent pains and aches as we age, yet too many people live sedentary lives. If you have not done any physical activity in a while, I suggest you start with a daily short walk and move from there. You will surely start noticing the benefits in no time at all.

As with any change, it may be difficult to start. After all, a new habit will take a conscious effort to start and keep at it before it becomes second nature. Start by saying “I can do it” out loud and commit to going for a walk every single day. Then, move into action right away. Every day will be a bit easier.

If you’ve had a sedentary life for some time, you may not have the stamina to walk 30 minutes on your first attempt, so start slow -perhaps 10 to 15 minutes a day- and keep on going. It doesn’t matter if it takes you a couple of weeks or more to accomplish this. Just start and keep at it. Then you can increase your minutes at your own pace. I want to point out that the most important thing is the positive attitude and commitment to your health. You will soon be able to do 30 minutes a day or even better. Perhaps you will eventually move into more strenuous physical activity. It is truly up to you!

Keep in mind that being aware of your thoughts, actions, feelings, and behaviors goes hand in hand with healthy aging. This enables you to build mind power and belief in yourself… Repeat “I can do it” every time you attempt a new activity to improve your health and you will. These 4 simple words are very powerful.

A word of caution… do not drive yourself to exhaustion or strain yourself. If it hurts or you are out of breath, stop for a while and let your body recover. Some physical activities require more stamina than others. Be kind to your body and it will respond accordingly. It is also very important to consult with your doctor and follow his/her instructions to incorporate any type of exercise into your daily routine, especially if you have not done this in awhile or if you have a certain condition.

You surely have some role models to look up to. At one point in their lives, they decided to take their health into their hands instead of suffering the consequences of inactivity as they aged. Decision is key. Action comes next. Remember that not making a decision is also a decision… only a passive one. Try to enroll a friend or family member in doing the activity with you. You can support and encourage each other while you have a good time together.

At the same time, avoid negative people that don’t support your goals. Negative beliefs and ideas from third parties can defeat the purpose of getting your thoughts in order and your body in shape. Also, make sure you avoid postponing things for a later or better time. As you know, most often than not the things we postpone seldom get done. This is another negative reflection called procrastination.

Procrastination leads to lack of action and complacency. When you give in to it repeatedly, your muscles and joints become weak. Lack of exercise also leads to deficient oxygenation of your brain, causing sluggishness or lethargy. Actually, new research has shown a correlation between the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and lack of exercise. Generally speaking, lack of aerobic activity is associated with medical problems of all kinds in the long run.

This is why when it comes to healthy aging, you must take control of your thoughts and actions sooner rather than later. Truth is, if we want to get to old age in good health, we must decide to do something now.

For most of us, health is of primary importance. When you think about it, we cannot experience true abundance
without health. If this resonates with you, then you must create a plan, set a goal and stick to it until you achieve the physical condition that you want.

Keep in mind that plans must be realistic according to the state of your health and age. Having said that, once you get the OK from your doctor and set your mind to it, there is not much you cannot achieve.

These are a handful of benefits that you can get from regular physical activity: increased lung capacity, decreased risk for heart attacks and strokes, stronger muscles and joints, decreased incidence of osteoporosis, natural regulation of blood sugar levels, lower incidence of back pain, good digestion and healthy bowel movements, weight loss and healthy weight maintenance, good attitude and positive outlook on life, and more.

Follow these three important steps: Decide, Act, and Commit to do it regularly.

Resist the urge to give up. If you feel overwhelmed, take a break but never give up. If you find yourself procrastinating or worse yet, giving up, remember that your purpose is to reach your golden years in optimum health and renew your faith and confidence in your self – repeat “I can do it” as you realign your thoughts with your actions and your intention.

When times get hard and you think you can’t keep up, just remember your mantra and say it out loud “I can do it” and remember that positive thinking will take you a long way. If you enrolled a friend or family member to do this with you, call them and let them know you need support and encouragement.

Don’t dwell on something you can’t change, focus instead on the things that you have the power to change. Fortunately, healthy aging is no longer a myth. Recent studies have shown that when it comes to healthy aging, there is so much we can do.

Healthy aging is linked to the food we eat, the activities we engage in, and the people we interact with. It is also about the way we think. Having a positive attitude will give you a jump-start to a healthier life now, and peace of mind over your aging process. Thus, think positive for healthy aging!

Spiritual Healing

Spiritual Healing

The term “healing” means to restore health, and up until recent times it was believed that healing was achieved just by bringing into balance the systems, organs and functions of the human body.

However, the connection between body, mind and spirit cannot be denied any longer. We can attest to that when we discover that the same exact treatment for one particular ailment heals one person but not another. This fact is proof that healing encompasses much more than the balance of systems, organs and functions.

In this regard, the term “Spiritual Healing” is much more comprehensive. Spiritual healing consists of the balance of subtle energies within, which include body, mind and spirit. Once this balance is achieved, healing happens at every level.

Another relatively new term is Energy Medicine, based on the premise that all living entities emit an energy field, also known as aura, Chi, Reiki or Prana. But, regardless of name, this energy field exists and when there are disruptions in it, illness and disease arise from this imbalance.

There are a variety of spiritual healing modalities that can be used to restore health. Some of them include meditation, crystal healingYoga, acupuncture, EFT, healing touch, Reiki, aromatherapy, Ho’oponopono, sound therapy, Pranic healing, and several other healing art forms.

They all seem to be effective to one degree or another; however, regardless of technique, they all share one common and fascinating fact: Those who have tried any form of spiritual healing quickly learn that their physical health improves once they acknowledge and address their emotional well-being first.

An amazing thing about spiritual healing is that you can choose the modality and the purpose. For instance, it is very possible to alleviate and even get rid of migraine headaches altogether by using EFT, Yoga or other relaxation techniques, all proven effective and without the side effects of analgesics and sedatives.

Like migraines, there are an unlimited amount of documented stories about an array of ailments that have either gotten better or eliminated by just practicing one or more spiritual healing modalities. Even prayer has proven effective in diminishing anxiety and stress!

It doesn’t really matter which technique or method you choose to heal your body and soul. What truly matters is the healing that takes place when you do it.  If you suffer from a physical condition, you may want to research which types of spiritual healing have helped others with your specific affliction. This is not to say you should dismiss your doctor’s orders, but help yourself to faster healing.

For example, some people have found that EFT and healing touch combined are of great help when it comes to overcoming chronic pain, such as a lingering lower back pain or muscle tension caused by bad posture.

Others who face depression, find that mindful meditation and Reiki offer soothing relief and healing regardless of cause.

Amongst the many kinds of spiritual healing available, all you have to do is find the one that works for you. There is no specific guide that works best for everyone because spiritual healing is a deeply personal experience.

Along your journey you will find that you did not know yourself as well as you thought you did. You might also find that old wounds, both physical and emotional, had not healed as much as you believed they had.

Much like climbing a mountain to discover Shangri-La on the other side, the process might be difficult at times; however, the rewards will be well worth it as you start feeling better and recovering your health, once your spirit has connected with your body, mind and soul and brought into balance once again.

How would you like to learn more about Spiritual Healing and the way in which you can help yourself heal?

Spiritual Techniques for Healing the Body by Amanda Lentinthon is an ebook that you’ll want to read! In it, Amanda takes you through a brief introduction to what spiritual healing is, and then talks about the traditional “Medicine Man” and American Indian healing, shamanism, sweat lodges, altered mental states for healing, yoga and the best asanas for healing specific ailments such as bronchitis, constipation, diabetes, depression, sciatic pain, migraines, and more. Finally, she shares how to focus your energy and provides a concise description of the chakra energy system. This is a very comprehensive, yet short educational ebook; the perfect start point to get you started exploring the different methodologies available for your spiritual healing.

Here is a preview of the first chapter…

“The belief that a healthy mind equals a healthy body is not new to anyone. However, the idea that a positive spiritual existence might heal the body is sometimes misunderstood. But, those who carefully examine their own lives can probably see where their mental state inflicts harm on their physical health.

An easy example is the “when it rains it pours” syndrome.  Just when everything seems to be going poorly some people find that they wind up physically sick. It is hard to believe that the two are not in some way connected.

The same can be said for working things in reverse. Start feeling positive and having a more balanced energy and physical illness can also dissipate…”

It requires you to figure out how to get your body
and energy into focused balance”

Associative Awareness Techniques

Associative Awareness Techniques™

Learn to Use Your Reflexes to Relieve Pain Fast!

Do you suffer from chronic pain for no apparent cause? Have you tried traditional therapies without satisfactory results? If so, there is new hope! This article will provide you with information that might help you rise above your chronic pain condition.

Associative Awareness Technique or AAT™ is a relatively new treatment that is gaining popularity among those that suffer from chronic pain. This treatment approach was developed by Scott Musgrave, MSPT, and Ernie Quinlisk, PT, based on many years of experience and research. Scott and Earnie believe that chronic conditions are NOT caused by the human body but begin and end within the human brain.

Here are the facts that support this statement:

Your brain is an amazing computer that receives and processes an enormous amount of information on a second to second basis. Like any computer, your brain has a hard drive. The brain’s hard drive is called the Brainstem. Located at the base of your brain, it is home to a part of the Central Nervous System.

This part is called the Autonomic Nervous System, and its main function is to control all the automatic functions of your body instinctively, such as breathing, heart beat, reflexes, as well as the functions of every organ — all necessary to keep you alive.

When you experience trauma through injury, accident, abuse, stress, illness and other causes that create a feeling of helplessness, your survival instincts of Fight or Flight get activated without your being aware of it.

For instance, when you experience fear (emotional stressor), your breathing becomes short, rapid and shallow, instinctively. Another example… when we mistakenly put our fingers in hot water (physical stressor), the response is immediate withdrawal of the affected area.

Regardless of stressor, the body reacts with an automatic and involuntary physiological response, to protect it from being harmed. The neuromuscular system gets activated like in the “Fight or Flight” response.

Although this is a positive reaction of your body to keep you safe and well, when you have been under stress for a long period of time, the activation of this instinctive process gets triggered repeatedly creating a loop in which the stimulus creates a response by reflex, and this reaction stimulates another response and yet another creating the never ending cycle of discomfort and pain.

Such is the case of muscle tension that does not go away even after the apparent stressor is not present anymore. It is also believed that this state remains active because of biofeedback received from specific physiological and/or emotional states of being. This may be the cause behind conditions such as PTSD, CFS and fibromyalgia to name a few.

In short, it is as if your body gets used to being under stress and cannot identify when the stressor is no longer present. The stress response keeps on triggering like a false alarm even after the aggression is no longer active. As a result, your brain is always sending signals to your body to keep alert… just in case.

Furthermore, emotional associations (anticipatory fears) and experiential associations (memories) to pain develop, keeping the pain cycle going indefinitely.

These persistent patterns are the cause of challenge for most traditional pain relief treatments, and since these conventional treatments are inefficient at interrupting the cause-effect cycle, chronic pain and movement impairment eventually settle in.

However, through a new understanding of thoughts, memories, reflexes, instinctive response and their associations, it is now possible to harness the body’s own reflexes to produce precise results and create relief for a multitude of pain related symptoms.

This approach toward healing is called AAT™. It creates balance between the brain and body resulting in pain relief, optimized human performance, stress reduction, significant relaxation and an overall state of wellness.

Considering that stress dramatically impacts the body’s ability to heal itself and recover from injury, and that an estimated 75 to 90% of all doctor visits are stress-related, it is essential to become more pro-active in order to heal oneself.

Thus, when you learn to tap into your own body’s reflexive and instinctual communications, the balance between the neurological and physiological systems can be restored fast and painlessly, improving your well-being and performance.

Even more amazing is the fact that the majority of patients show dramatic results with just one to four sessions. But… this technique is so new that not too many health care practitioners have been trained yet. The good news is that there is a great alternative and you do not need to visit a Physical Therapist to tap into the benefits of AAT™!

In Reflexercise™ by Scott Musgrave MSPT, you will learn how to apply AAT™ to yourself. When you get Reflexercise™, you can easily learn how to start reducing your pain. The best news is this: Reflexercise™ is a simple technique that anybody can learn fast. You can learn it today!
