Why Crystals Heal & Which Ones To Use for Chakra Balancing

Laying gemstones on the body for healing purposes has been practiced across numerous cultures for thousands of years.  But why?  What could a seemingly inert stone possibly do that could benefit the body?

The answer lies in a scientific phenomenon called the piezoelectric effect.  To avoid getting into too much technical jargon, you can best understand the piezoelectric effect by considering a quartz watch.  When slightly bent, a small piece of quartz puts out a constant voltage that keeps a watch running with phenomenal accuracy.

Crystals and gemstones do the same for us.  They put out a small, charge that interacts with our biomagnetic field and creates more harmony and balance.

Every stone has a unique vibration, just as every person does.  For this reason, the particular stones needed for balancing the chakras will vary somewhat from person to person.  For this reason, you see a lot of different suggestions across various chakra books.

The best way to determine if a particular gemstone is good for you or for a specific chakra is to “test” it by placing it on your body and checking in with your body’s subtle (or sometimes, not-so-subtle) response.

chakra stones You may even want to have a friend place different stones on your body while your eyes are closed, and determine which ones feel the best on each chakra.

Always trust your body’s response.  If a stone feels bad on the body, remove it – unless you recognize that “bad” feeling as a clearing, and feel an instinctive desire to stay with the stone.

A very simple, but generally good rule for chakra balancing is that if a stone is the color of the chakra, it’s good for boosting and balancing that chakra.  Hence, the first chakra stones tend to be red-toned, the second chakra stones orange-toned, and so on. Certain stones, like quartz, come in many different hues and can be used for all of the chakras depending on its shade.

When picking which gemstones to use for each chakra, secondary colors should be considered.  Two common ones are: black for the root chakra and pink for the heart chakra.

This does not mean that every stone that heals a particular chakra will be the primary or secondary color of that chakra.  There are exceptions. Still, there is so much correspondence between the gemstones’ color and the chakras they balance, that it is a great “rule of thumb” – especially for anyone who doesn’t know a lot about rocks.

Best Foods and Herbs To Cleanse and Detox Your Kidneys

 

By Dena Schmidt | New Paradigm

The kidneys play a crucial role in filtering out waste products and toxins from the blood. Without this detox process, harmful toxins would remain in the body and our health would quickly break down.

Because of this, keeping the kidneys in top shape is crucial to overall well-being. A balanced diet, plenty of clean water, and regular cleansing with natural herbs and juices are key to supporting and maintaining kidney health. The following are some of the top foods and herbal remedies that can help detox the kidneys and keep them functioning at a high level:

1. Cranberry

Cranberries, cranberry juice and cranberry extract are well known for their effectiveness in healing bladder infections and keeping the urinary tract healthy. However, they can also support kidney health by helping to eliminate toxins, bacteria and calcium oxalate – a main ingredient of kidney stones.

2. Cabbage

This cruciferous vegetable is loaded with phytochemicals, which help to eliminate harmful free radicals in the blood. Cabbage is also high in the vitamins C, K, folic acid and B6; however, it is also low in potassium, so it is gentle on the kidneys.

Fact: 26 million Americans have disease of the kidneys – and most don’t even know it

3. Beets

Beets and beet juice are high in beneficial compounds, phytochemicals and antioxidants. Consuming beets helps to raise the acidity level of the urine to assist in clearing away potentially harmful buildup in the kidneys.

4. Dark Berries

Dark-colored berries get their rich hue from their high content of flavonoids. Blueberries, blackberries, dark grapes, and cherries are just a few examples. Their healing compounds are antioxidants and support health by promoting better blood flow, a reduced risk of cancer and heart disease, less inflammation, and detoxifying effects in the blood and tissues.

Did you know that high blood pressure and diabetes are the two leading causes of kidney disease?

5. Herbal Detox

The top herbs for kidney detox include parsley, goldenrod, dandelion root, horsetail and celery root. Some of these herbs are available in tea and supplement form, while others can be easily added as seasonings to your favorite dishes.

6. Lemon

Lemon juice is naturally acidic, so it can assist in raising citrate levels just as beets do. Squeezing lemon juice into water for a hot or cold beverage and drinking it regularly is an easy and effective way to support kidney health.

7. Vegetable Juicing

Juicing has surged in popularity in the past decade due to its potent health benefits. While fruit juice is nutritious, juicing vegetables (or a combination of both) can be even more healthy and cleansing. Vegetables contain less sugar and in some cases more vitamins than fruit.

While berries, apples and pineapples are loaded with nutrients, adding dark leafy greens like spinach, kale and chard can boost the nutritional impact of your juices. Cucumber, celery, lettuce, zucchini and carrots are also excellent additions. Adding some of the other ingredients discussed here such as cranberry juice, herbs, beets and lemon juice can also enhance the effects of a juice cleanse.

The kidneys are among the body’s main defenses against toxins, so treat them well! Make the foods, beverages and herbs discussed here a regular part of your diet and enjoy the health benefits.

How Do We Know That Energy & Healing Are Real? This is How

shutterstock_174150992

by Chemory Gunko
What is energy, what is an aura, and do you have a field of energy around and within your body?

We feel that it exists, that it’s there, but what is the proof that tells us unequivocally that we are right – and not just imagining it?

Luckily, over the years, a number of key scientific experiments have been conducted to answer the question of “Does [bio]energy exist?”.

Kinesiology

Kinesiology is a muscle testing process that was discovered around the late 60s/early70s. shutterstock_259032671

Today it forms the basis for healing modalities like Sports Science Medicine, Resonance Repatterning and BodyTalk, among others.

Basically kinesiology enables you test whether or not someone energetically resonates with an object or statement.

The word resonates or resonance in energy, basically means that your body and system (mind, thoughts, feeling, soul, energy) are aligned or agree with that item, person or statement.

So, a simple example would be identifying a tissue salt that someone needs. They could hold various salts while pressure is applied to a muscle in their body – usually the arm.

If resistance is encountered when the pressure is applied, then the tissue salt is indicated. If no muscle resistance is encountered, then the person’s system does not need that particular salt.

The Human Consciousness Scale & The Holographic or Morphic Field

Kinesiology on its own has so many applications in terms of healing and release work, but the really exciting discovery that kinesiology lead to was the Holographic or Morphic Field, and then the Human Consciousness Scale.

After the discovery of kinesiology, Sir David Hawkins set out on a very long two-decade research project into the field. As part of this project, Sir David began testing people with a consistent set of statements to see if the results were consistent across people all over the world. They were.

This led to the realization that there is a field of knowledge and information that we’re all connected to, called the Holographic or Morphic Field, and every one of us is able to plug into that field and extract the same knowledge consistently.

It’s like the Morphic Field is the Internet of all things, and our minds and bodies are search engines or devices that can plug into that field and extract whatever knowledge we need.

3 in Thy Name by R. Ayana

This then further evolved into an understanding that there is an evolutionary model and path for human consciousness development, and this was called the Human Consciousness Scale.

Questions that Sir David posed during this experiment led to very interesting discoveries, like where Jesus and Buddha ranked in terms of consciousness, and the kinds of emotions that you deal with at each level of development.

High and Low Energy Power Patterns were also discovered, and simply reading these high and low energy power patterns is kinesiologically proven to boost you by 35 points on the Human Consciousness Scale.

View the full Human Consciousness Scale and High & Low Energy Power Patterns here

The Maharishi Effect or Critical Mass

Another interesting finding that you’ll see on the Human Consciousness Scale linked above, is a breakdown of how high vibration energy beings counterbalance low vibration energies in the field.

For example, someone at the level of Christ (700 – 1000), counterbalances 70-million people vibrating below 200. By this measure we’d only need 144,000 enlightened souls to make the global shift a reality.

This was further backed up by studies conducted by the FBI into critical mass or the Maharishi Effect.

shutterstock_377997973The experiment had originally  been conducted on a smaller scale, and basically asked: how many people need to be engaging in an activity for it to impact the population around them?

Following on the original smaller successes, the FBI conducted experiments where they gathered experienced and practiced Transcendental Meditation (TM) Practitioners into major urban centres all around the world, and had them pray or meditate for peace.

During the times the meditations were taking place, consistently, wherever they were, ALL crime and violence rates in the area would drop – by up to 100%.

I’m going to say that again, so we hit your convincer, because this is important:

Every single time people meditated and prayed peace, the entire city around them experienced peace.

And you thought your silly little meditations and prayers had no measurable effect?

Critical mass, as concluded by this experiment, is basically the square root of 1% of any given population.

This means that 1 person immediately impacts 100 people around them, but 2 people impact 400, and 3 people impact 900. 4 people gathered together immediately impact 1600 people around them.

Makes group meditations that much more appealing hey?

The DNA Phantom Effect

Next, we owe a thank you to Dr Vladimir Poponin for his contribution to our logical argument debate.

Dr Poponin did a really cool experiment where he first created a vacuum, and then measured what had happened to the atomic elements inside that vacuum. All the photons and neutrons and protons in other words – the building blocks that EVERYTHING is made up of.

As expected, inside the vacuum, these atomic elements had reverted to a state of chaos and disorder.

Then Dr Poponin did something really cool, he added a piece of DNA into the vacuum.

Amazingly, once this piece of DNA was introduced, all the atomic elements formed a holding pattern around it. When he removed the DNA, the holding pattern STAYED IN PLACE.

When you go for healing work of any kind, what happens is that your body changes on a cellular level, and at the level of your DNA. These changes impact the atomic world around you and create visible changes in your reality.

This is how healing enables you to work on and change EVERY area of your life – not just physical ailments.

The concept that healing only applies to the physical is a limitation of medicine – medicine can only treat the physical and can’t even make inroads into treating mental disorders effectively.

Energy can and does treat everything – from your relationships to money flow to opportunities. And it treats the emotions and the illnesses and can heal what medicine can only manage in many cases.

Water Responds to Emotion

shutterstock_174605486The last really cool energy experiment that you should know about is the work of Dr Masuru Emoto.

His work, entitled Messages from Water, looks at the impact of various stimuli on water.

Basically Dr Emoto takes water and photographs the crystals, and then applies stimulus such as words, music, prayer and pictures to the same water, and then rephotographs it after a period of time.

Consistently, Dr Emoto’s work has shown that water exposed to negativity will show horrific and broken up crystal structures, and water exposed to positive and loving reinforcement will show beautiful and symmetrical crystal structures.

Interestingly, different stimuli create different crystal structures, so the crystal for the word love looks different to the crystal for the word thank you. Different prayers also have a different effect.

Your body is 70% water…. makes you think, doesn’t it?
