First and foremost my friends. I did not realize how long it has been since I posted. So accept my apology.
Even though I have been working with metaphysics for several years. I should know better. I found sometimes when around people, like relatives or people you think you know well. You forget to protect yourself.
What happens you end up taking in the energy negative or positive and it sticks to you like velcro, wear it like glue and then wonder what is happening to you. You find your self sad, depressed or even sick. It has nothing to do with you. It was their stuff. It takes you a while before you realize this and recover takes a bit. Feel lethargic.
My go-to is food for comfort. and that doesn’t help!
I usually use a piece of black tourmaline to protect myself. I throw it in my pocket. I also smudge myself with sage. Do a chakra cleanse. Then I feel like I’m coming out of the fog. I had a lot of family stuff that hit me these past weeks. No lie, the grieving doesn’t help. Makes me more vulnerable. People who haven’t lost children, can not know what it is like to lose them. It is a different type of grief. People mean well.
Well, I’m glad to be back. I will see you soon…Take a hug!
Healing with sound has been around for a long while. Using voice. This type of healing is called vibrational medicine or sound healing. Everything from your voice to tuning forks and singing bells is used in this noninvasive practice.
- Amplitude- Size of the vibration, loudness of the vibration size of the sound.
- Frequency – Speed of the vibration, determines the pitch of the sound.
Each individual resonates to sound at their own vibratory level. Between the size and speed of vibration, the sound touches our bodies on a molecular level. When our bodies fall into disharmony and dis-ease, these sound vibrations break up the blockages so our energy channels can flow freely.
There are many ways you can use sound to benefit your health. Starting with only speaking good thoughts. Working with tuning forks, singing bowls, chimes, drums vocal chanting to name a few. You can go to youtube and look for the different notes that can help different aspects of your body. These frequencues are called Solfeggio. You can even lower blood pressure and stress.
- Tuning Forks – A tuning for consist of a handle and two prongs called tines. When the tines hit the rubber hammer (many use hockey puck), the tines will vibrate. This vibration disrupts blockages in your system.
- Singing Bowls – This ancient Tibetan was used for centuries for healing and meditation. The various vibratory frequencies balance out your mind body and spirit.
- Crystal Bowls – These bowls are different than singing bowls. Simply by the sound. The sound causes our cells to move in different directions at different speeds within the harmony of the sound wave. This form is very impactful.
- Drums– The earthly sound of drums also have been used by many cultures over the centuries.
Now sound has been brought into the mainstream medical practices with healing kidney stones and cancer patients. Plus much more.
There are so many ways that we can help ourselves with healing by incorporating things like sound and meditating to start to harmonize our body during rough times in our life. We owe it to ourselves…..Don’t we?
I have stood on the shoulders of giants, as I have learned through the years. My main interest for years is finding books, articles, and websites that would help me find ways In which I can heal myself. We hold such power to do that. Much is right at our fingertips! Our fingers are jumper cables and we can balance our bodies all by ourselves. There are so many modalities. This is a good place to start.
As I find interesting information that I feel that would work. I am happy to pass it on to you. I am not necessarily trying to promote one modality or another. This is how I found things to work for me. If you like the websites, enjoy!
The first link is Jin Shin Jitsu, Inc. The main purpose of this method is self-healing. She has many books which I purchased if you want to pursue this for yourself.
Below is a handy article that I found on the process.
Good timing! I sure need to release my energy blocks that is keeping me from moving forward. Had a few rough days. I know it is grief. Today is a good day to start.
I invite you to indulge yourself in participating in your own full moon release. Bring your crystals and oils, release the blocks. Journal it out
All things work out in divine order …
and it is so!
“In the Lakota/Sioux tradition, a person who is grieving is considered most waken, most holy. There’s a sense that when someone is struck by the sudden lightning of loss, he or she stands on the threshold of the spirit world. The prayers of those who grieve are considered especially strong, and it is proper to ask them for their help. You might recall what it’s like to be with someone who has grieved deeply. The person has no layer of protection, nothing left to defend. The mystery is looking out through that person’s eyes. For the time being, he or she has accepted the reality of loss and has stopped clinging to the past or grasping at the future. In the groundless openness of sorrow, there is a wholeness of presence and a deep natural wisdom.”
Keeping in the context of we can create our wellness as well as our illness. I have been trying to catch myself when I am cursing things out. Complaining about stupid things, realizing how important was it really.
I am choosing to stay positive the best that I can. Maybe there won’t be a hurricane that hits us if I don’t worry about! Interesting thought! Or group consciousness…many people not worry. Many people down in Florida don’t even move until they really really know it is about to hit. The newscasters start the fear mongering in January. Being human, and if you have ever been through one, makes you hypersensitive.
Worrying is like praying for something you don’t want, so now I can see how I was faced with so many sh*t storms. I created them. Owning up to your actions is tough. But oh, so necessary. More and more that you can correct yourself when you hear those words coming out of your mouth. Saves you a lot of grief.
When I was taking the journey to my son’s funeral in January. I had not flown since 2009. I was worried about everything. All the what ifs… were piling up. I had to make it stop so I caught myself and kept chanting…”Everything will be alright”. Guess what it was! The plans all fell into place. Amazing how we have the power to change our fate.
Mercury goes into retrograde next Tues, March 6. Since my sun sign is ruled by Mercury, sun sign too!. I have to play closer attention. I can sit and feel sad, which I have. I have a right. But need to take action. I have plans. I have not hit my design table for quite a while. Before my son passed anyway.
I spent a day over the weekend going through several articles and topics of information that I have saved over several decades. I have not worked with much of my healing toolbox. I feel a strong pull. That is why I decided to write a blog. I have studied with some interesting people and stood on the shoulders of giants. Time to pass my wisdom on. Some I wrote, some I didn’t. What I didn’t I give credit to.
I remember one thing that gets me moving is when I design. I work with natural beads. The beads heal me as I create. They calm me and I feel good. I sing and I chant. I put healing into the beads that I create as well. This will all good intention that whomever the piece finds will find much love and healing themselves. As I put the healing in with this intention. In return receive the love and return. Can’t go wrong.
Stay tuned for some new pieces. Also re-engineered! I just looked at what I have and going to break down and recreate! I plan on getting them on ETSY before the retrograde. I’m setting my goal right here! This will keep me busy!
Started my ETSY account today. What started being a gloomy day, turned out being quite productive! Yay!
