How do affirmations work?

Affirmations are little sayings or sentences that you may say to yourself to encourage the growth of that desire. For example, let’s say you want to get more money. You may say to yourself, “I am willing, ready and able to receive money.” But in the back of your mind you might be saying, “This isn’t going to work. This is dumb.” In the end the negative comment is going to trump the positive affirmation.

 

Positive affirmations are a way of life. The way you think is the way you live. If you truly believe that telling yourself positive things won’t work and your life won’t improve, then it wont. However, if you tell yourself that all the positive affirmations will work and they will change your life, then they have a great chance of doing so.

 

Thinking is a habit. If you wanted to quit smoking, you would have to break that habit. Once you officially quit smoking you might have an improved quality of life. You might be able to run longer, stop coughing, have more energy, the list goes on. That is the same way affirmations work. Once you break the bad habit of how you used to think, you will start thinking more positively and positive energy will be attracted to you.

 

Your life will fill with opportunities, happiness, wealth, health and love, just to name a few. So how do you start with these positive affirmations? Well it’s quite simple. Just start telling yourself positive things!

 

Do you want to attract more love? Tell yourself this: I have come to this planet to learn to love myself more, and to share that love with all those around me.

 

Do you want to have more energy? Tell yourself this: Today, I am brimming with energy and overflowing with joy

 

Do you want forgiveness? Tell yourself this: I forgive those who have harmed me in my past and peacefully detach from them.

 

If you want a better marriage: My marriage is becoming stronger, deeper, and more stable each day.

 

If you want more self-love: I acknowledge my own self-worth; my confidence is soaring

 

If you want good health: I love my body and it is a powerhouse for fueling me. I respect and listen to what it needs.

 

If you want success: My obstacles are moving out of my way; my path is carved towards greatness.

 

These are just a few affirmations. You can find them everywhere and you can even create them yourself. It is so important to watch what you think, because that is what you become. Do not deny your power and your worth!

How does Meditating Work?

We’ve all heard that meditating is supposed to relax and balance ourselves and it should be practiced the same way that you blink or breathe-all the time. Meditating is a practice that helps you achieve higher consciousness. It can rewire our brains entirely. It’s been known to ward off health issues and prepare people to handle more in their lives. It is a way to control your emotions. But do we really know how it works?

  1. Gamma State: (30 – 100Hz) This is the state of hyperactivity and active learning. Gamma state is the most opportune time to retain information. This is why educators often have audiences jumping up and down or dancing around — to increase the likelihood of permanent assimilation of information. If over stimulated, it can lead to anxiety.Beta State: (13 – 30Hz) Where we function for most of the day, beta state is associated with the alert mind state of the prefrontal cortex. This is a state of the “working” or “thinking mind” — analytical, planning, assessing and categorizing.3. Alpha State: (9 – 13Hz) Brain waves start to slow down out of thinking mind. We feel more calm, peaceful and grounded. We often find ourselves in an “alpha state” after a yoga class, a walk in the woods, a pleasurable sexual encounter or during any activity that helps relax the body and mind. We are lucid, reflective, have a slightly diffused awareness. The hemispheres of the brain are more balanced (neural integration).

    4. Theta State: (4 – 8Hz) We are able to begin meditation. This is the point where the verbal/thinking mind transitions to the meditative/visual mind. We begin to move from the planning mind to a deeper state of awareness (often felt as drowsy), with stronger intuition, more capacity for wholeness and complicated problem solving. The theta state is associated visualization.

    5. Delta State: (1-3 Hz) Tibetan monks that have been meditating for decades can reach this in an alert, wakened phase, but most of us reach this final state during deep, dreamless sleep.

Meditation has been proven to preserve the aging brain and improve memory. It also has shown to increase focus in people and decrease mind-wandering. Mind-wandering can be signs of unhappiness or focusing on the past or future too much. By toning this down by meditation you will start to see things more clearly in present time. Meditation can also have the same effects that medication have on anxiety or depression. It can rewire your brain and increase happy hormones like dopamine or serotonin. Meditation has also shown progress with helping addiction. Meditation “decouples” cravings from the actual act of consuming or doing whatever you are craving.

As you can see, meditation only has positive benefits. It is important that we take care of our minds just the same way we should take care of our bodies. Our minds control every aspect of our lives and if we have an unhealthy mindset, we have an unhealthy life. By making simple changes like meditating or using sound healing, we can bring positive energy back into our lives and raise our vibrations.

The Guilt Game

What is guilt? We’ve all felt it. We all know how it makes us feel. It is one of the worst feelings and can leave you sleepless and sad. Maybe you did something and are too embarrassed to admit it. Maybe you finally realized something and feel like you need to right a wrong. Maybe you feel undeserving and when you finally achieve a goal or receive that item, you no longer feel good, but rather guilty.

Guilt is a funny thing. In a cognitive perspective, guilt is the thought that you have done harm unto someone else. Some people feel this emotion many times throughout the day; some people feel this emotion only once in a while. Researchers and psychologists believe that guilt and the amount of guilt you feel is determined on how you were raised and how you played as a child.

Guilt can be irrational and cause extra anxiety. It can make a situation seem more severe than it really was or it can make you question what actually happened. Sometimes people will experience guilt when they come into a large amount of money. Maybe they got a new job and they are paid very well or someone passed away and they inherited money. They may feel like they are undeserving of this money and they are afraid to have it or use it. This can cause extra distress on that person’s life and it can lead to a domino effect of many other problems.

Some people may also feel this way when it comes to love. That person may have been in a poor relationship in the past and believes that they only deserve a partner who will treat them worse than they treat their partner because they feel too much guilt. They feel like they are a burden so they need to be treated like one.

Guilt can form from a lack of confidence or from a lack of deservingness. These emotions could have been formed from situations in the past, it could have been how someone was raised or it could be from depression or anxiety.

So how do we fix it? Someone who experiences an exponential amount of guilt should practice positive affirmations. For example:

“I am deserving of my wealth/life/job/health.”

“Love is attracted to me because I express love.”

“I am happy and deserving.”

“I approve of myself and my surroundings.”

These are just a few examples of what you can tell yourself to boost your confidence and change the way you think. Through sound healing and positive affirmations, someone who experiences a lot of guilt will see improvements and may even notice their outlook change on situations. Nobody has to suffer through guilt. If you or someone you know is experiencing debilitating guilt or an abnormal amount of guilt, suggest sound healing and positive affirmations.

Finding Your Purpose

Many people will sit and wonder what their purpose in this world is. Are they supposed to save lives? Are they supposed to invent the next big science revelation? Are they supposed to be the best parent they can be? It can be draining thinking about your future and everything that you may or may not accomplish.

It is important to take a step back and think about what makes you happy. Does going to your job make you frustrated or uninterested? If so, it might be time to make a change. Are you not so thrilled to be waking up to cold weather and snow every day? It might be time to make the move. Some may say that this is a form of running away from your problems. In my opinion, it’s realizing what is right for you and making that change. Life is fluid and does not stop for anyone. If you are unhappy time will pass by and you will still be unhappy. This is only true if you don’t do anything about it. You need to create your own happiness.

By following your happiness you will start to discover your true passions. Success is defined by the satisfaction that you get out of your work. Someone could win the lottery and not be successful. Someone with a few dollars in their bank account who is working their way through college could be successful. It doesn’t matter your circumstance, as long as you are happy with your progress and the end result.

It’s easy to dream of how you will feel once you “become successful,” but it can be difficult to figure out how to get to that point. This is where Holistic Sound Healing comes into play. By clearing negative thought patterns, opening up your mind, releasing your inhibitions and rediscovering yourself, your thoughts will become clearer and you will have more direction of what you truly want in life. It is easy to create the future that you want. We are what our thoughts consist of. Do you believe you are a lazy person? By believing you are lazy you are becoming lazy. If you believe that you are a successful person you will become successful. It’s easy to trick your brain, might as well trick your brain into becoming something successful and positive.

Waking up every morning and telling the universe that you are ready to find your purpose will give you a head start. You can meditate and do yoga to feel more centered and balanced with your life. Everything happens in due time and your purpose is in the works. Most of the time you are living your purpose without realizing how it’s truly affecting your life. Everything happens for a reason so embrace the process!

The Science of Letting Go

Have you ever sat at your desk or laid in your bed late at night thinking about how upset you were that a certain person did that certain thing to you ages ago? Maybe you do not even realize that you are holding onto something so closely until you see a picture of that person or you hear from them again. Your emotions may catch you off guard and it can be impossible to think about anything else in that moment of time. These are all signs that you are holding onto something very negative in your life. It’s okay to be upset or hurt about something for a period of time. It’s called grieving. You could be grieving about a past relationship, an untimely death, a lost job, etc. There are so many things that have the possibility to grieve over. However, once that grieving period ends and you start to handle your emotions in unhealthy patterns, or worse, you don’t handle them at all- it might be time to make a change.

Harboring those negative thoughts only increases your chance for negative thought patterns to develop. This negative energy that you have allowed into your life is wreaking havoc through your whole system. It can release itself in many different ways throughout your body. It can increase stress and decrease your happiness which in turn can leave you with poor health from the stress and depression or other unwanted emotional feelings. Holding onto something so tightly means you are applying your energy into that situation. You are no longer opening yourself up to a more positive opportunity or experience. You are shutting yourself off to the world around you.

This may all sound like gloom and doom. I can hear you saying, “I don’t want to be sad and stressed. I would love to have new opportunities in my life! I just don’t know how to let go!” All of these concerns lead to the infamous question. How do we let go? If we are constantly thinking about how we want to let go of this situation, we are simply applying more energy into an unwanted topic that will not benefit us. It is important to reach a new mindset where you feel comfortable with thinking about the situation or person. Allow yourself to think of all the happy and sad times and maybe why you’re upset or why you’re sad. Allow yourself to feel those emotions in that moment. Then once you have ran through those emotions thoroughly tell yourself you are at peace with what happened and you are willing to let go. You don’t have to have all the answers right there or feel completely fine, but once you tell yourself that you are willing to let go you are allowing your energy to take a positive turn and help you. The universe will work its magic and help you with the rest. The most important thing to remember though, is that you are willing to let go. Nothing comes easy, but soon after you will find yourself with a lighter heart and a more open mind.

If you are still struggling during the time of letting go, Holistic Sound Healing will be able to help. Sound Healing can remove the negative energy you have towards a situation or person and allow you to alleviate some of the pain or pressure you are feeling. You may start to notice a positive change in your life faster and you may be even more willing to let go.

An important thing to remember is that you are always where you need to be. You may have even ran across this article for a reason. Every day is always a great day to redirect your energy into positive opportunities. It is okay to remember situations or people, but by releasing that negative energy and thought connected to it, you are opening the door to a happier life and a better future.

Addictions

Addictions can plague many people’s lives and have detrimental effects on their health and well-being. Their families suffer, their careers suffer and their mind suffers. Addictions can be caused from a variety of reasons. From getting into the wrong crowd at a young age to coping with depression or other mental illnesses. It’s important to figure out the root cause of this addiction so that person can stop relying on things to fill the void in their life.

Whether the addiction is heroin or alcohol, to cigarettes or diet coke. It’s easy to form that pattern and create a bigger problem than the one at hand. By allowing that addiction to come into your life you are escaping from the internal problem and making it an external one. Once the addiction is in place, you may have no control over your thoughts or feelings and your body forms a dependency.

Most people with addictions don’t even realize they have this addiction and believe it is just a habit that they can stop at any time. They may come to the realization that if they do try to stop it is nearly impossible due to the different chemicals that have effected their brain functioning. This can lead to a spiraling effect where they have no control on whether they can stop it or not. However, some people may not want to stop their addiction at all and have realizations they need to when it may become too late.

Luckily for people with addictions, Holistic Sound Healing exists. By digging into your subconscious and pulling out what is truly bothering you, we are able to extract that void and that addiction.

“After 32 years of this nasty habit, I was ready for another attempt to quit smoking. I was going to try Chantix because I had some results the last time I had done it 4 years prior. (I quit for almost 3 weeks) The dreams I would have when I started taking the product were insanely crazy. I had a list of reasons on why I needed to quit. A friend told me about sound therapy and that it would be the absolute best way to do it without any side effects. The cost of this treatment would add up to the cost of the doctor’s visit alone so I tried this treatment. It was totally painless and very relaxing.  I kicked the habit! I’ve been smoke free for 2 ½ years now without any side effects or irritability issues at all. You will be amazed by the results!”

-SV

This is just one testimonial out of many people we have treated for addictions. It is possible to see results using Sound Healing. It is cost effective, efficient and works immediately. By replacing your body with another drug, you are just transforming your addiction into another form. It will be a constant cycle that will be impossible to break. Taking your inner fears, anxiety or depression and releasing them will open up more room for joy and success in your life. You will have improved health, you will feel happier and you may start to notice improved relationships with your loved ones.

If you or someone you know has an addiction encourage them to try Holistic Sound Healing.

Bad Habits or Underlying Issues?

Have you ever woken up in the morning to nothing but a sore jaw? You realized that for the last several hours while you were sleeping, you were doing nothing but grinding your teeth and building tension in your jaw. Have you ever wanted to grow out your nails but you couldn’t because you can’t stop biting them? You’re never able to have pretty hands. Do cold sores randomly pop up at the most inopportune time? These bad habits could all be linked to an emotion or thought you are harboring that causes stress or frustration in your life!

Teeth grinding is usually caused by stress or anger. By holding in all those emotions, your body is trying to find a release of them. Holistic Sound Healing can clear the anger or stress that you are harboring in your life. Sometimes you don’t even realize you are holding onto something until it is brought up. Your mind is very good at suppressing unpleasant memories and thoughts.

A similar bad habit that could be linked to emotion is nail biting. Some people struggle from time to time with biting their nails and some find it impossible to even grow out their nails because they bite them so much! A probable cause for nail biting could be linked to frustration, eating away at oneself or even spite of a parent. Whether you are frustrated with the way your boss wants to do something at work and you find yourself biting at your nails as soon as you get back to your desk, or you are feeling some unexplained emotion and nail biting comforts you; it can be easy to remove this with Holistic Sound Healing. By removing these negative thoughts or emotions, your habits will remove with them. Think of how much happier you will be, and not to mention healthier! Biting nails carries a plethora of germs that can be harmful to you.

Another nasty flaw that appears on some people are cold sores. They seem to pop up randomly when you least expect it and when it is least desirable. An emotion that could be linked to your cold sores is the festering of angry words and the fear of expressing them. Have you been upset with someone lately? Possibly gotten into a disagreement that wasn’t settled so nicely? By keeping in those nasty thoughts and words, your body is allowing that stress to escape via cold sores. Holistic Sound Healing takes those emotions away so you will be able to think about that argument and not feel so much anger or emotion, or any at all!

Overall, we allow our bodies to continue to practice these bad habits by not taking responsibility of our emotions and mindset. By eliminating some of the negativity and emotions through Holistic Sound Healing, you are able to live a life free of bad habits or nasty flaws. This will make you happier and overall healthier. What are you waiting for?

 

 

What is a salt lamp and how can it help you?

You may have noticed the increasing number of orange rock-lamps popping up in stores and malls around you. And although they are a very fun and appealing thing to put in your home, they serve another purpose as well. This multi-functioning salt lamp actually helps purify the air in your home and assists in helping anxiety, allergies and other unwanted toxins.

So what actually is a salt lamp and how does it help? Himalayan Salt Lamps are made from pure Himalayan Salt. The salt is a natural negative ion generator. With all the negative and positive ions in the air, sometimes an imbalance can occur. Positive ions can form from electronics or other toxicity in the air. Negative ions are a neutralizer and cleanse the air. You can find negative ions from lightening storms, ocean waves and other natural forces. The light and salt in the lamps is what creates the negative ions. This is because salt attracts water and the water then evaporates from the heat the light source produces; during this process the negative ions form.

Some of the benefits from having an increasing amount of negative ions in the air can include more oxygen to the brain, fewer germs or bacteria in the air, fewer allergens and overall more mental alertness. This can help your anxiety as well due to the increased oxygen in your brain and the balance of ions. Technology and other toxic positive ions affect our body by sending artificial electromagnetic wavelengths with different frequency values. This creates an imbalance with the natural electromagnetic oscillation that is present on this planet. By creating this imbalance your wavelength frequency becomes imbalanced and you are left with imbalanced hormones, sleep patterns, health behaviors, etc.

Overall, these lamps are not only a beautiful thing to have in your home, but also an overall beautiful thing for your health. By eliminating some of the positive ions found in your home from technology and other factors, you are able to have cleaner air, less allergens and overall more alertness. Holistic Sound Healing can also benefit your natural frequency and cleanse your body of the technological toxins found in the air around you. It is important to take care of your mind and body by being aware of what is actually present in your space. And while purchasing your salt lamp, be sure that it is made from actual Himalayan Salt and not a knock off, as it will not have the same effects.

Holistic Sound Healing for the Skeptic

Holistic Sound Healing isn’t widely known and for some, it can be a skeptical experience. The idea that sound can heal your mind and body can be a hard concept to grasp. But I am here to explain to you how it works. And the only way I can actually prove to you that it works is by using facts and science!

To start, it is important to know that every life form on this planet depends on the electromagnetic field of vibration (Schumann Resonance Frequency). Our planet is electrically positive charged and the earth’s surface has a negative charge. Our Earth’s ionosphere cavity is created by the conductive surface of the earth and the outer boundary of the ionosphere. The tension in this cavity is relieved by lightning. Lightning has a frequency between 1kHz and 30 kHz. Lightning produces electromagnetic waves in very low frequency.

It wasn’t until Dr. Ankermueller made the connection between Schumann’s resonance and the alpha rhythm of brainwaves. The frequency found in the environment was almost identical to the frequency found in our brains. Dr. Ludwig furthered this theory by doing more research. He tested the environmental frequencies in large cities and near the ocean and found that the frequency waves were stronger near the ocean. This was due to good electrical conductivity. This is why when people go to the beach or after a big storm sometimes they feel refreshed, it’s because of the strong frequency.

Dr. Ludwig also researched old Chinese teachings about achieving perfect health. He discovered that in order to achieve perfect health, the Schumann wave simulation needed the geomagnetic signal to balance the human body. They experimented with student volunteers. They placed them in an underground bunker, which screened out magnetic fields. The students lived in the sealed environment for a month. The student’s circadian rhythms changed and they suffered from emotional distress and headaches. Once the experiment was over they were exposed to 7.8 Hz and were healthy again.

So what does all of this mean? Basically your brain is consisted of neurons and they use electricity to communicate with each other. This creates a brainwave pattern. The higher the brainwave frequency the harder it is to concentrate and it becomes more difficult to produce those feel-good chemicals like endorphins or dopamine. By lowering our brain frequency we can concentrate more and become more balanced. The positive and negative frequencies in the air that are created from our ionosphere have a large effect on how our brain frequencies function. Being by the ocean, there are plenty of negative ions and lower frequency so we may feel calmer. Being in a large city there is a lot of air pollution and toxicity in the air producing positive ions that have a higher frequency and may affect our brains in a negative way.

Manifesting Success

You may be sitting at a desk for your office job and you may be slightly unhappy. Maybe you’re driving to work every morning not exactly excited to start the day. Maybe you’re very unhappy with the career you’ve chosen. But in reality you feel that it would be too hard to start over rather than just dealing with your job. I mean, you’ve already made it this far right? And who knows, maybe you’ll get that raise?

Those are all excuses. They are preventing you from a lifetime of success. Success can be defined in a few different ways; however, my idea of success is being genuinely happy with where you are in life. Anyone has the potential to be successful. And if your definition of success is a swanky career and a nice salary, even more power to you! Whatever your goal or dream is, it’s possible to reach it.

So how do you reach it? Is it even possible to do? The first step you need to do is create a game plan. By establishing what you want to do and prioritizing the way you need to do it will keep you organized and give you more potential to succeed. The second thing you need to do is start pursuing the steps you need to take in order to accomplish this goal. Maybe you’re trying to release weight from your body. (You might want to read our article on how to ‘release’ weight) You’ve established that you need to eat healthier, workout more and have a more balanced lifestyle. Although you’ve got an idea of how you’re going to go about your goal, you’ll actually need to follow through. The third thing you will need to do is continue on your journey even when you have set backs. If you let yourself get down about the fact your gained two pounds over thanksgiving even though you’re on a huge diet, you will only create more obstacles and opportunities for you to succeed.

But the most important thing to remember when you are trying to climb the latter to success is your ability to train your brain to be focused on your success. This is the foundation to your goal and should be implemented in your life every single day. When you wake up in the morning you should think of your goal, when you eat breakfast you should think of your goal, when you are making dinner you should think of your goal. The only way success will flourish into your life is if you manifest it and allow it to grow. Every task you do during the day should be in relation to your goal. Instead of taking that hour to watch tv, spend that time logging down your schedule or evaluating what you did today to reach your goal. Through Holistic Sound Healing you can create a clearer space in your mind and have a stronger ability to figure out what you truly want. By discovering your purpose, success will follow you while you are chasing your passion. The key is staying focused and grounded and Holistic Sound Healing will fulfill both of those. So what are you waiting for? Success is possible for you so don’t wait a minute longer.
