The thoughts that arise in our heads have an impact not only on our mood but also on our health. This effect can be either positive or negative. It all depends on what kind of thoughts we choose. Unfortunately, most people don’t really control what kind of thoughts they allow into their minds. One Small negative thought can get into your mind and like a seed grow into a big disaster. Healing affirmations are a powerful tool that can redirect your mind from negative vibrations that cause illness to positive ones that bring healing.

In this article, I will share with you what healing affirmations are, how they work, and give you a list of very powerful affirmations that will help you to reprogram your mind from illness to healing.

What Are Healing Affirmations?

Healing affirmations are short phrases containing a verbal healing formula that, when repeated many times, activates healing process in the subconscious of a person, contributing to the improvement of his psycho-emotional background and stimulating positive changes in his health and wellbeing.

Most people can’t even imagine how effective healing affirmations are! Healing affirmations are your main key to reprogramming your consciousness. That’s why the trick is to keep repeating them again and again until they are firmly imprinted in your subconscious.

With the help of healing affirmations, you can reprogram your mind from lack of energy and illness to vitality and health. If you learn to direct the energy of your thoughts to health and wellbeing you will eventually start feeling better, more energized, and will notice that you’re more healthy than ever.

Healing affirmations will help you to improve your overall health, boost your immune system, get rid of chronic and infectious diseases, ease the symptoms of a particular disease, speed up wounds and cuts healing, etc.

How Do Healing Affirmations Work?

Every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation. All of your self-talk, your internal dialogue, is a stream of affirmations. You are using affirmations every moment whether you know it or not. You are affirming and creating the state of your health with every word you say and every thought you think.

It has been proven that there is a connection between the body and the mind. Therefore, many diseases begin due to psychosomatic causes. Even diseases caused by bacteria and microbes have a psychosomatic root. This is explained by the fact that the human immune system becomes unprotected due to strong emotional stress.

You have to understand that every complaint is an affirmation of something you think you don’t want in your life. Every time you get angry, you are affirming that you want more anger in your life. Every time you say that you’re not feeling well, that you are sick, you’re affirming that. If you feel that Life isn’t giving you the desired health and vitality, then it’s certain that you will never have the wellbeing that Life gives to others — that is, until you change the way you think and talk.

Our emotions are built by our thoughts. And our thoughts are based on our conscious or unconscious choices. With the help of healing affirmations, we can consciously form the desired health.

To change our life and improve our health, we need to change our thoughts. There is a link between our health and positive thoughts. By repeating healing affirmations, you create positive vibrations in your subconscious mind which brings positive transformations into your body.

With strong focus and concentration on positive thoughts, your mind can heal even the most serious diseases.

Affirmations are like seeds planted in soil. Poor soil provides poor growth. Rich soil gives abundant growth. The more you choose to think thoughts that make you feel good, the quicker the affirmations work.

A Few Important Tips

mirror talk image

Before you start creating and practicing your healing affirmations, let me share with you a few important tips that will help your practice to be more effective.

#1: Keep Your Affirmations Personal

Your healing affirmations should be personal. They should be a kind of self-talk. The only person you can change is you. Therefore, never try to use affirmations for changing someone else. You can affirm: “I am healthy! I am happy! etc.”. This is due to the fact that the subconscious mind works for us and only for us.

#2: Affirm in the Present Tense

The only way we can create a great future is by changing our thoughts in the present moment. The present moment contains a magical power of manifesting our reality. What we think and do today creates our future.

When we affirm health in the present tense we ensure that our subconscious mind starts to work on it right away. When you say “I will be healthy”, or “I’m going to heal” you’re placing your desire somewhere out there. There is no creative power in the future. Your past and future are the two biggest illusions that distract your focus. The real creative power is in the present moment! And only in the present moment can you manifest your health!

Therefore, always use affirmations in the Present tense, like: “I am healthy!”, “My immune system is strong”, etc.

#3: Avoid Negative Words

When creating your healing affirmations, avoid negative words such as “not”, “no”, “don’t”, “never”, “can’t”, “won’t”. When you use these words you make your mind focus on something you don’t want in life and make your affirmations negative. Instead of focusing on what you don’t want you should focus on something you do want. In this way, you direct your subconscious mind to manifest the positive results you desire.

#4: Avoid Words That Manifest Negativity

When affirming your desired reality avoid words that manifest loss, something you’re trying to get away from or get rid of, such as “get rid of”, “stop”, “give up”, “avoid”, “refrain”, etc. For example, instead of saying: “I’m losing 13 pounds”, say “My weight is … (your ideal number)”.

#5: Avoid “I Want”, “I Wish”, “I Would Like”

These phrases manifest a lack of something. When we want something it means we don’t have it in our life. So, when the Universe is hearing your request, it manifests it in a way that you will always want something but never actually get it. You’ll be wanting all your life for your wishes to come true. Therefore there is a big difference between “I want” and “I have”. Only “I have” has the power to bring you what you request. For example, instead of saying “I want to be healthy”, say “I am healthy”. And the Universe will make sure that your reality matches your words and thoughts.

#6: Turn Your Desires Into Power Phrases

Make your affirmations short, direct, and memorable! This technique is also widely used in advertising. Advertisers call it “slogan“, healers call it “power phrases”.

How To Work With Healing Affirmations?

  1. Write down or make a printout of all the healing affirmations you’re going to work with.
  2. Before starting to repeat your healing affirmations, make sure to straighten your back, relax your shoulders, feel confident. You want to remove any pressure from your spine and make your energy flow freely and smoothly.
  3. Say your healing affirmations out loud one after another, slowly and confidently. Make it sound as if what you say has already become a reality.
  4. While saying the healing affirmations look in the mirror or in the sky.
  5. Say the affirmations twice a day. This should be done in the morning, as soon as possible after waking up, and in the evening, right before going to bed.
  6. Say the affirmations at least 8 times each.
  7. Do not use too many affirmations all at once in one session.
  8. Be consistent: practice the healing affirmations on a daily basis.

The Bottom Line

The most important thing in affirmation practice is to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. In healing affirmation practice, we are replacing our thoughts about the illness with thoughts about perfect health, vitality, and wellbeing. It is especially important to remember this not only during your affirmation practice but also in your everyday life. Remember that even a fleeting negative thought can destroy months of positive affirmation practice! Stay focused on your health and choose your thoughts carefully!

Chakra Frequencies: 7 Powerful Tones For Sound Healing

Published

on

chakra frequencies hz image

Our chakras play an essential role in how we feel and function mentally, physically, and emotionally. When we align the seven main chakras, we feel whole and fulfilled. You must also be aware that there are over 100 chakras in the human body. However, we need to align the seven main chakras arranged along the spine for a peaceful and harmonious feel in the body.

There are ways you can restore unaligned and blocked chakras in your body. One sure way to do it is to use chakra frequencies. In this article, we look at how you can use Chakra frequencies to regain perfect Chakra alignment.

What are Chakra Frequencies? 

Chakra frequencies are a type of sound therapy that comprises vibrational tones, sound, and music to enhance your emotional and physical well-being.

This kind of sound healing typically entails calm and soothing music and sounds such as:

  • Tuning forks;
  • Indian classical music;
  • Tibetan singing bowls.

To activate Chakras the sound therapists use specific sound frequencies to activate different chakras.

Activating the Chakras and Solfeggio Frequencies 

Solfeggio Healing Frequencies Image

Solfeggio frequencies are the sound frequencies associated with chakras. These sound frequencies vibrate at a specific Hz frequency while interacting with your brain to create desired results throughout the body.

Since ancient times, the Gregorian monks of Western Christianity and Eastern Indian religions use Solfeggio frequencies to promote stress relief, body calmness, and relaxation.

Despite being used in ancient times, these frequencies became popular in the 70s. Dr. Joseph Puleo discovered that six vibrational tones could create harmony in the body. He also found that these harmonies could heal the body and mind and eliminate subconscious negative beliefs.

Here are the six frequencies that Dr. Joseph Puleo discovered:

  • 396 Hz – This sound resonates with the root chakra. It can help eliminate trauma, fear, and guilt.  
  • 417 Hz – We associate this frequency with the sacral Chakra. It is great for taking your creativity to the next level. It is also instrumental in bringing positive change. 
  • 528 Hz – This Solfeggio frequency is vital in transforming cellular functions. You can use it to create a better neural path to the brain, which is connected to the solar plexus chakra
  • 639 Hz – This Solfeggio frequency is linked to the heart chakra. It is excellent for transforming your love and intimacy in life
  • 741 Hz – This tone is associated with the throat chakra. It is the ideal tone to choose to improve self-confidence, esteem, and communication skills. 
  • 852 Hz – We link this frequency to the third eye Chakra. It is vital for people who would love to improve their mental clarity and brain function.

Using the Solfeggio Frequencies to Heal the Chakras

The resonation of the Solfeggio frequencies has a significant positive impact on the chakras. For instance, the Schuman low-frequency resonance effectively promotes the synchronization of the higher brain. This is effective for your brain health as it matches the different brainwave states.

Here are ways different Solfeggio frequencies heal different chakras:

The Root Chakra

We associate the Muladhara, also called the Root chakra, with stability and security. Having this Chakra aligned guarantees you better success at having all basic needs. The root chakra vibrates at 396 Hz. This smooth vibrational tone is composed of long wavelengths that produce soothing sounds.

You can also listen to 396 Hz music to eliminate fear and guilt. It may also free you from negative emotions and feelings. If you want to eliminate fear and guilt while restoring courage and strength, we recommend sound that vibrates at 396 Hz.

Sacral Chakra

The Sacral Chakra is also called the Svadhistahana. This chakra governs our intimacy, sensuality, and sexuality. If you have these qualities right, you can easily connect with your passion in life. You can also achieve high levels of creativity.

The sacral Chakra vibrates at 417 Hz. If you want to drop the creativity block, listen to 417 Hz Chakra music. This frequency is also great for seeking to heal sexual and personal trauma.

When it comes to the physical, this sound can help relieve tension from body parts such as joints and muscles, especially around the hips. With this, you can quickly improve your mobility and flexibility.

Solar Plexus Chakra

The Manipura chakra, or the solar plexus, is associated with how we view ourselves. If the solar plexus chakra is balanced, you will have willpower, high self-confidence, and belief in yourself. You will be more determined to pursue your goals.

This Chakra vibrates at a frequency of 528 Hz. Listening to music at this frequency can make you more resilient while pursuing your goals. With this, you can ease anxiety and physical tension and improve your digestive health.

Heart Chakra

The Anahata chakra, or the heart chakra, is essential in decision-making. It can help you resolve things such as family or relationship disagreements. The correct heart chakra frequencies set you for more gratitude, compassion, forgiveness, joy, and empathy. You also open your heart more to receive and give love.

The heart chakra vibrates at a deep tone of 639 Hz. This frequency will connect your mind to your most vulnerable spots. This makes it practical for you to create and maintain peaceful and healthy platonic and romantic relationships.

Throat Chakra

The Vishuddha chakra, or the throat chakra, is the center of expressing ourselves. It helps us build qualities such as clear communication skills, which include expressing ourselves well while still being able to listen and welcome other people’s opinions.

If you are afraid of expressing or standing up for yourself, you may need to activate your throat chakra, which vibrates at 741 Hz. This vibration will boost your confidence and empower you to speak and stand your truth.

On the physical side, this frequency is effectively eliminating toxins and bacterial and viral infections.

Third Eye Chakra

We associate the third eye chakra, or the Ajna, with spiritual and physical vision. This chakra gives better and stronger eyesight on the worldly and physical levels. On a spiritual level, the third eye chakra opens up our vision to allow us to connect with guidance from our higher beings.

The third eye chakra vibrates at a frequency of 852 Hz. Listening to meditation music on this frequency can help make you more open-minded to view your mind and the world from a different perspective.

Crown Chakra

The crown chakra is the one to focus on if you want to deepen your spiritual roots.

This chakra, otherwise called the Sahasrara, is excellent for:

  • Taking the ego under control;
  • Understanding ourselves better;
  • Re-connecting with our Higher-self;
  • Attuning to a Higher consciousness;
  • Strengthening our connection with God;
  • Creation of deeper connections with nature.

The crown chakra has the highest frequency on the Solfeggio scale; it has a frequency of 963 Hz. These high vibrational tones have short wavelengths that will make you more conscious of the things around you.

What Is Betrayal Trauma? The Signs and Tips to Start Healing

Published

on

What Is Betrayal Trauma Image

When someone you love and trust betrays you, it can make you doubt your sanity. Betrayal can be so traumatic you may even show early signs of PTSD. Think of the times a spouse discovers that their partner is cheating on them or into porn addiction. Or when a parent realizes a child is an alcoholic or drug addict. Such discoveries make you go through shock, denial, and other long-term emotional scars that strain the relationship. So, what is betrayal trauma? And, how can you manage and heal from it? Let’s have a detailed look.

Understanding Betrayal Trauma

Betrayal trauma occurs when people or systems we trust or rely on for survival violate that trust and emotional wellbeing. Ideally, we feel the urge to end a relationship with anyone who betrays us. Still, if you are in an attachment relationship where you rely on the betrayer to meet specific needs, walking away is not feasible.

It is this attachment to someone or an institution that you know is betraying you, that triggers deep emotional wounds. Typical examples of betrayal trauma include child neglect and abuse, sexual abuse, and infidelity between spouses.

6 Signs You Are Undergoing Betrayal Trauma

Betrayal trauma makes us question ourselves and our partners’ motives. It also triggers mood swings, irritability, memory loss, dissociation, isolation, lack of intimacy, and engaging in activities that distract us. Below are some additional tell-tale physiological, emotional, and mental signs of betrayal trauma: –

#1: Feeling Unsafe

When you identify the relationship with your spouse, friend, or workmates as a lie, the deception violates your trust. Moreover, you begin to question your judgment about other relationships you may have at the moment.

Emotional insecurity makes us: –

  • Struggle to open up on hard topics
  • Get defensive when criticized
  • Snoop around for clues or anything suspicious
  • Agreeing to everything
  • Blaming a partner for everything
  • Faking happy moments

#2: Gaslighting Partners

Narcissistic Abuse Image

Now, partners living a double life will do all they can to keep their other relationships a secret. At times, they may gaslight their spouses to make them question their perception of reality. For example, they claim you are overreacting when you ask about the numerous withdrawals from the family bank account. Likewise, they may blame you for triggering their short tempers, saying you changed after having kids.

#3: Self-Blame

Now, betrayal trauma makes us look inwards for answers. In hindsight, we end up blaming ourselves for being too busy and overlooking the red flags. You know, your partner’s sudden controlling behavior, deceit, gaslighting, verbal or physical abuse, and concerns by your friends or family members.

But since you love and trust your partner, wishful thinking and infatuation make you overlook all these tell-tale signs that something is amiss. Consequently, we blame ourselves, saying if only we were more attractive, loving, or had more money, the betrayal wouldn’t have happened.

#4: Overwhelming Secondary Guilt or Shame

If you hold a reputable leadership position in your community, church, school, or place of work, betrayal comes with overwhelming shame. Letting those around you know that you’re going through a divorce, or your child is a drug addict, or your parent is facing theft charges ruins the picture-perfect reputation you have. In addition, your feel ashamed for crying or not being strong enough for your kids during this challenging phase.

#5: Physical Distress

Typical physical signs of betrayal trauma include: –

  • Sudden panic attacks
  • Stomach distress
  • Sleep problems
  • Anxiety & depression
  • Easily prone to panic attacks by external triggers
  • Nightmares
  • Poor hygiene
  • Tiredness

Some physiological effects of betrayal trauma like tiredness and stomach upsets may resolve after a few weeks. Others like anxiety and depression can escalate into mental health complications unless addressed early.  

#6: Self-Destructive Impulses

When undergoing betrayal trauma, you become vulnerable to negative impulses like: –

  • Having suicidal thoughts or attempts
  • Alcohol and drug misuse
  • Excessive smoking
  • Chronic self-injury like hair pulling, self-cutting, & nail-biting
  • Compulsive gambling, gaming, or shopping
  • Binge eating

Most victims know they are self-destructive. However, the urge to harm themselves is beyond their control.

Managing Betrayal Trauma

#1: Speak Up

Join community groups or online support forums and share your painful experiences with others. Doing so helps you know that you are not alone. Plus, you access valuable resources to help you cope with the trauma.

#2: Acknowledge Your Emotions

Start by forgiving yourself for being vulnerable to the abuser. Next, practice mindful meditation to help you release your negative emotions and begin your healing process. Journalizing how you feel each day will help you pinpoint the triggers in your self-harm behaviors or what you need to focus on in your healing journey.

#3: Practice Self-Love

Daily Self-Love Practices Image

Is your lifestyle self-destructive? Here are some self-love practices you can start right away: –

  • Practice clean eating
  • Quit smoking
  • Join your local gym
  • Go for a massage or forest bath
  • Take up a new hobby

Self-love helps us rediscover ourselves, boosting our self-esteem.

#4: Set Boundaries

Setting healthy boundaries after your spouse, friend, or colleague hurts you helps to achieve a sense of safety when around them. It is a necessary coping mechanism when you have no way of ending the relationship. Hence, you can: –

  • Review your expectations from the relationship
  • State what you can and cannot tolerate in the relationship
  • Discuss what you consider acceptable financial boundaries
  • Redefine how much friends and extended family can interfere with the relationship
  • Define what you consider as private

#5: Seek Professional Help

Betrayal trauma presents itself in a multilayer form that is best dealt with by an experienced professional. Indeed, an inexperienced family member may re-traumatize you by saying such things as “Did you stop getting intimate after having kids? Also, talk to an experienced family therapist or counselor about how the trauma affects your quality of life.

Conclusion

What is betrayal trauma to you? Well, if you experience an attachment injury when a friend, spouse, or colleague breaks the mutual trust you have, you may develop deep wounds that take time to heal. If your gut feelings tell your partner or parent is gaslighting you, they could be doing so to distract you from their deception. Likewise, if you feel unsafe, struggle with guilt, self-blame, or self-harm behaviors, seek professional help to heal from the trauma. Also, share your experience, rediscover yourself, and set firm boundaries to give you some peace of mind in this challenging time.

Signs of Complicated Grief and How to Overcome It

Published

on

complicated grief image

Grief is how we respond to losing our loved ones. It is a feeling accompanied by a lot of sorrow, pain, and numbness. Grieving can be devastating and draining both mentally and physically. Unfortunately, many people still face it every other day.

Now, with normal grief, people accept the new gap in their life and learn to live with it. For some people, the wound gradually fades off, and soon after, they pick a new routine. Many will embrace the recent change and learn to live with the scar.

However, this is not usually the case for all. Not everyone experiences normal grief. Some people experience complicated grief, which takes an even more significant toll on them.

What Are the Differences Between Normal Grief and Complicated Grief?

Complicated grief is also called complicated bereavement disorder. With normal grief, the pain, numbness, and sorrow fade with time. No, we do not get over the death of our loved ones. We learn to live with it.

The situation is different with complicated grief. The pain, sorrow, and numbness do not fade away with time. They stick longer and prevent you from resuming your day-to-day activities.

How Long Does It Take for It to Be Considered Complicated Grief?

mood swings image
mood swings

It is essential to know that grief is different for everyone. People have different coping mechanisms to go through the loss of their loved ones. However, many psychologists agree that if the grief remains intense beyond 12 months after the bereavement, it can be considered complicated grief.

Some state that if the feelings are still unbearable six months to 1 year after the death, it is not normal grief. However, no rule is written in stone, and no scientific research states when grief graduates from ordinary to complicated.

Signs and Symptoms of Complicated Grief

If you cannot seem to gather enough will and power to pick up your routine after the loss of your loved one months after it happened, you are most likely experiencing complicated grief.

 Here are some other symptoms to watch out for:

#1: Poor mental health

Complicated grief is graced with depression, stress, and anxiety issues. These could manifest themselves in many ways, such as deteriorating hygiene or not being interested in activities you liked.

#2: You focus on nothing more than the death of your loved one

If you cannot seem to concentrate on anything else apart from the memories or what would have happened if they didn’t die, you may be experiencing complicated grief. This may also come out as an intense longing for the deceased.

#3: Feeling that life no longer has meaning

This is a familiar feeling shortly after you lose your loved one. However, if you feel like you have no more purpose living months after your loved one’s passing, you are experiencing it. You may also notice that you lack interest in any form of self-care.

#4: Bitterness about the loss

This may come out as intense feelings of anger. Sometimes, the blame game and the what-ifs may cloud your judgment.

#5: Suicidal thoughts

Many victims start experiencing suicidal thoughts since they feel like life has no more purpose.

#6: Overindulgence or escapism

This may come out as doing everything you can to avoid items or people that will remind you of your loved one. The opposite is also a sign of complicated grief, which happens when all you want to do is be around things that remind you of them.

You may also experience the following signs:

  • Lack of sleep or inability to stay awake;
  • Physical body pain;
  • Lack of appetite or poor eating habits;
  • Weakened immune system.

Causes

unhealed trauma symptoms image

You are probably wondering why some people manage their grief more gracefully while others have a difficult time. As we have stated earlier, grief intensity is different for everyone. Besides, there are no definite causes of complicated grief. However, the following situations put people at more risk:

  • The sudden or unexpected death of a loved one;
  • Witnessing the death;
  • Not getting a chance to spend the last moments with the loved one or not being present when it happened;
  • Experiencing more than one death over a short period;
  • People with a history of mental illnesses;
  • Not being able to iron out differences with our loved ones before they die; 
  • People with a history of substance abuse.

Treatment

Treating complicated grief involves accepting the death and taking steps to start healing the wounds. It may take time and patience, but it is a sure way to bounce back on your feet. Here are some steps to help.

#1: Bereavement therapy

The first reason you need bereavement therapy is that mental health issues typically accompany complicated grief.

 Secondly, a bereavement therapist will guide you on the steps to:

  • Accept the death;
  • Gain a better understating of your grief and mental state;
  • Cope with the loss of your loved one.

You can also join bereavement groups to get support from people who have been where you are.

#2: Talk it out

It would help if you got all the feelings and emotions out. Do not bottle them in. Lean on friends and relatives that can give you a listening ear and hold your hand.

Of course, you want to stick to friends who can let you be you. Be careful; words like “I understand your pain; I have been there” can take you back on your healing journey. Just surround yourself with friends that will let you grieve it out.

In short, don’t confide in friends that invalidate your grief. It makes your grief even more difficult. 

#3: Practice mindfulness

We do not get over complicated grief by avoiding the feelings. Facing it is the best way out. Mindfulness will help you face grief a day at a time. It is an excellent way to feel what you feel without disrupting or avoiding it. Practice mindful breathing and walking meditations to keep your mental and physical health in check while going through a difficult time.

Mindfulness can also involve journaling your life and your loved one’s life. You can even celebrate their life through a scrapbook. Mindfulness is one great way to deal with your grieving emotions head-on and learn to come to terms with life events.
