How To Heal Yourself

How To Heal Yourself

In our last article we talk about the mind-body connection in relation to disease. In the article, we mentioned Dr. Deepak Chopra’s Radical Well-Being and how he talks about the power of meditation. We’re going to go a little deeper into the importance of meditation and other lifestyle factors that can actually heal yourself.

  1. Sleep: Sleep is the number one thing your body needs. If you’re not getting enough sleep, your body is going through a significant amount of stress. This takes your body out of the parasympathetic nervous system and puts you into fight or flight. Have you ever gotten a poor night of sleep and felt extremely hungry the next day? When you don’t sleep your body produces less leptin and more cortisol. Leptin is the hormone that suppresses your appetite when you’ve had enough to eat and cortisol is your stress hormone. When you’re stressed, your body craves more food and if you don’t have hormones telling you when to stop eating, you may be prone to overeating. This alone can throw your body out of alignment. Cortisol can also mess with your mood, causing more anger. (Hello low vibes!)
  2. Meditation: Meditation brings our bodies into a theta frequency. When you are in a theta state you experience visualization, creativity, insight, peace, and you are connected to the universe. This allows you to decompress, and bring your body back to the sympathetic nervous system. This is where healing can occur. When we heal our bodies, we can experience more positivity, creativity and fun because we’re not reserving energy.
  3. Movement: Moving our bodies allows our lymphatic system to move and cleanse itself. A sluggish lymphatic system leads to lower immunity, fluid retention, and retention of toxins in our bodies. Movement also produces endorphins and other happy hormones that can improve our moods, combatting stress and environmental factors.
  4. Emotions: Recognizing our emotions is extremely important. This doesn’t mean we have to always be happy or positive, in fact that can sometimes be counterintuitive. It’s important to feel your emotions and process them. By processing them and releasing them, we are no longer storing them in the body. Journaling is an excellent way of doing this because your body no longer feels the need to store the memory once it’s written on paper. You can start to release some of that pain.
  5. Nutrition: Fueling your body with food that intuitively feels good to you is extremely important. Knowing your limits and what your body is craving can benefit you and your energy. Our bodies are cyclical, especially for women. It’s important to feed your body what it needs at that moment.

At the end of the day, you are in charge of your healing and preventing yourself from disease. These are the best ways to set yourself up for success. Energy Sound Frequency Therapy will give you the extra benefits on top of all of these points, and improve your life significantly. Energy Sound Frequency Therapy will bring you back into alignment, which makes it much easier to incorporate these healthy habits into your life. When you love yourself – your body and the world loves you back.

The Mind Body Connection & Preventing Disease

The Mind-Body Connection & Preventing Disease

When it comes to taking care of our bodies, we know that preventative measures are always more favorable than dealing with disease. When people hear they have a terminal illness or have to live with something for the rest of their lives, their mind immediately goes into shock and acts in a place of fear. Instead of figuring out what their body needs holistically, they put all of their energy into fighting the fire.

 

Many people will say that “Oh, it’s genetics, I was bound to get it.” or “This is just what happens to people my age.” But the truth is, that’s not technically true. 

What are the facts?

Studies from Dr. Bruce Lipton shows that our genes are influenced by our environment. That means, when you live in an environment that is conducive to stress, anger and negative emotions, your body remains in fight or flight, activating your sympathetic nervous system. When this occurs, your genes are susceptible to disease.

 

In Dr. Deepak Chopra’s Radical Well Being he talks about how our genes are responsive to our lifestyle, and that meditation can heal our bodies. And if we can use our minds to heal our bodies, that means we can also use our minds to harm our bodies through stress. He claims that 95% of diseases are caused by stress and the implications that has on the body. 

How to change

But how can we change our environment when our world isn’t always conducive to that? We have jobs, families, overexposure and connection to everything in the palm of our hands. As a society, we are more stressed than ever.

 

There are many things we can do to heal ourselves. The first and obvious ones are sleep, diet, and exercise. Our genes respond to meditation and our thoughts. Before bed and when you wake up in the morning are optimal times to meditate because your body is still in theta, a frequency that is connected to the unconscious mind. This allows you to connect to a higher source and raise your frequency, making you less reactive to the environment around you. And in turn, this decreases the inflammation in your body. Less inflammation = less disease.

 

Energy Sound Frequency Therapy is a great way to remove the lower vibrational frequencies in your body by raising your frequency. We store emotions in our body every single day. Whether we’re aware of it or not. It can take years to uncover stored emotions and release them. But Energy Sound Frequency Therapy can release them immediately. This brings you into a state of alignment, making it easier for you to meditate and keep your body in a parasympathetic response.

 

When it comes down to it, preventing disease is easier than we think. Instead of using negative energy to worry and program our bodies to believe that we are genetically inclined to get a certain disease, it’s beneficial to program our minds to believe that we hold all the power. Through meditation, energy sound frequency therapy, diet, exercise, lifestyle and our thoughts, we can influence our lives in significant positive ways that benefit more than just our health. If we start living in a positive and aligned state, we won’t have to wait until we’re living with a disease to realize we deserve so much more in our lives.

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.

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.
