Karmic Relationship Healing: Effective Practice To Let Your Past Go!

Published

on

karmic relationship healing image

Your present is a reflection of your past worldview. Take a look around! Everything you have today is the result of your thoughts and actions in the past. If you’re not happy with your life or have problems with relationships you probably need to consider a karmic relationship healing.

As long as you’re attached to your past you give your energy to it. Thereby you take away the energy from the present. When you’re constantly reflecting on memories in your head (no matter if they are pleasant or unpleasant) it leads to a biased perception of the present moment. The present moment, in turn, has an impact on what your future will be. If there is not enough energy in the present moment, it will be even less in the future. Thus, your thoughts about the past have an impact not only on your present but also creates an energy deficit in your future.

Karmic Relationship Healing And Chakras

Very often other people “pull” us into the past. It can be people that hurt us, people we hurt, people with whom we argued, people we broke up with, etc. The memories of these people (conscious or subconscious) take energy through the energy cords that block our chakras.

Energy cord is an energy channel, which is formed as a result of a violation of harmonious energy interaction of a person with other people and forms attachments.

Negative emotions form cords on the corresponding chakras.

The Danger Of Energy Cords

The energy cords are dangerous because they cause energy failures in the energy field: from slowing the flow of energy to its complete stop in a certain chakra.

In addition, the cords significantly aggravate the communication, depriving you of liberty, weaken your connection with your Higher Self, and inhibit your development.

energy cords image

If your negative emotions are very strong, they can form energy cords that can persist for several incarnations. Moreover, in each new incarnation, you will attract those souls with whom you have energy cords again and again. And this circle of incarnations among the same souls will continue until you release yourself from these cords. Such a circle of incarnations, tied to the same souls, is called ”karmic connection”.

It is the absence of attachments (energy cords) that is an indicator of a free spirit. Therefore, in order to fully and harmoniously develop, it is necessary to get rid of karmic cords and free yourself from attachments.

Liberation from the energy cords does not imply the destruction of the energy connection between people but means the acquisition of freedom at the disposal of one’s life. For example, freed from the attachment to parents, you will not stop loving them and will not lose their love, but will find a harmonious relationship without pressure and manipulation.

The Most Common Attachments

Now let’s take a look at the most common energy cords that can affect your life in a very negative way.

Resentment

This energy cord has a negative impact on health. When you feel offended, in your thoughts you return to your offender, again and again, thereby generously giving your vital energy to your offender.

Guilt

This cord is based on your aggression directed at yourself. When we feel guilty, we realize that we can not correct what we’ve done. In our mind, we constantly analyze the thoughts of how we can beg forgiveness from the one who we hurt, and what we can do to make amends. As a result of systematic analyzing of such thoughts, the energy cord is formed.

Jealousy, Dependence, Passion

These kinds of cords arise when one person has a need to possess another person. He constantly thinks about the object of his lust, dreams about it, passionately wanting to get what he wants. Such thoughts create a strong energy cord.

Unrequited love

This cord has a very strong negative impact on health. It pulls out a very large amount of energy from the one who loves, and the one who’s loved. Naturally, here we are talking about illusory love because true love is always unconditional and brings only positive emotions.

illusory vs unconditional love image

Revenge

This cord is created as a result of building a plan of revenge in your head.

Pity, desire to save

This kind of cord is formed by ego. It is the ego that thinks that you are a Savior and a hero, makes you think that you are doing a good job, constantly “hanging” other people’s problems on your shoulders, and thinking that without your help and support people cannot cope. However, at the energy level, a cord is formed, on which your energy flows away towards the person you are so desperately trying to save. Thus, you become a donor for the energy vampire. Such a binding blocks both: your own development (because you simply do not have enough energy for it) and the development of the person to whom you are so actively helping to solve problems (because you take away from him/her the necessary life lessons for evolution and spiritual growth). As a result, interfering in the life of another person, you form a strong karmic connection.

Parent cords

parents control image

These cords are based on the desire to control your child. As a rule, parents explain their behavior with care and love, but this is a big mistake. Love cannot exist where there are an addiction and a desire to subjugate another person. Love lives only where freedom exists. If parents do not accept their child as an independent person and do not give him full freedom of self-realization, their energy completely blocks his main chakras, which prevents him from successfully building his personal life.

Karmic Relationship Healing Practice

No matter what kind of energy cords and attachments we have there is always something we can do. I’m talking about self-healing. Let me share with you a very powerful practice that provides a karmic relationship healing. This practice is aimed at the liberation from negative energy cords to a particular person.

First, you need to find out who you are attached to. Give yourself time to think about it. Who comes to mind most often? Write down the names of all the people you think about most often. After all, these are the people you have karmic cords with.

Writing notes image

Now you have a list of people to whom you are energetically attached. Follow the practice below, starting with the first person on your list.

  1. Light a candle with the intention to get rid of negative energy cords to … (say the name and last name of the person).
  2. Take a relaxed position, close your eyes.
  3. Invite the Higher self of the person you’re trying to let go and heal your karma from. To do this, say three times: “I invite the Higher Self of … (name and last name of the person) for karmic relationship healing and for removing the negative energy cords that exist between us for the sake of our Highest Good.”
  4. Visualize in your imagination this person in front of you. Imagine how a Golden ray comes out of his (her) Solar Plexus Chakra and enters your Solar Plexus Chakra. Concentrate on that ray.
  5. Visualize that you’re looking into the eyes of the person. Say 8 times: “I sincerely forgive you for everything you’ve done!”
  6. Keep concentrating on the Golden ray. This is your connection with the person. Through this ray, his (her) Higher Self receives messages from you in this meditation. Look into the eyes of the person, say 8 times: “Please forgive me for everything I’ve done!”
  7. Keep looking into the eyes of the person, say 8 times: “I sincerely and from the bottom of my heart thank you for everything you’ve done!”
  8. Now embrace this person in your imagination, and imagine the Golden-green ray of love coming out of your Heart chakra and going into his (her) Heart chakra. Accompany this ray with your love and words: “I love you!” (say 8 times).
  9. Now, in your imagination, move away from this person at arm’s length, and imagine how from each of your chakras to his respective chakras stretch cords similar to wires (there are seven of them).
  10. Pick up an imaginary lighter, light it and start annealing each cord, starting with the cord that connects your Muladhara chakras and finishing with the cord that connects your Crown chakras. Accomplish these actions with the words: “I completely forgive and let you go!» (8 times).
  11. Once you’ve annealed the last cord on your Crown chakras, imagine a wall of flame between you and the visualized person. At the same time, each of you is surrounded by a Golden cocoon of divine love. These Golden cocoons are healing all your wounds from annealing cords. Watch the flame between you, and as it burns, keep saying, “I’m letting you go!”.
  12. When the flame has dissipated, you will see yourself alone, surrounded by a Golden light, and realize that all the emotions and limitations that have been enclosed in the cords are only an illusion, a life lesson that you have passed.
  13. Thank the Universe for this lesson.
    Slowly open your eyes.

The number of such practices for each case is individual. It depends on the binding force. Sometimes it is enough to do this practice just one time. But still, to consolidate the result, it is better to do it 8 times for each person you’re trying to heal your karmic relationship with.

It is desirable to do a karmic relationship healing with all your friends. Don’t worry, the communication with them won’t stop if you’re interested in it.

After this practice, the person with whom you severed the energy cords, will feel that you have stopped feeding him (her) with your energy and will try to remind you of himself (herself). It can be a phone call, e-mail, another attempt to put pressure on you or something else. In other words, he (she) will try to provoke you to get emotional about something, so that you, once again, under the influence of his provocation, give him your energy. He (she) will do his (her) best to restore the cords. In this case, try to behave kindly with him (her), do not succumb to provocations. After that repeat your karmic relationship healing practice with this person once again to fix the result.

The Bottom Line

You can do karmic relationship healing practice as many times as you need. Sometimes I feel that I need to do it again with the same people I already healed my karma from. Our life changes every second of our existence. Today we feel like we have no attachments but when tomorrow comes we may feel that our old attachments rise again. If you feel that communication with some people isn’t pleasurable for you anymore it means on energy level you have cords to these people. And through these cords, you’re losing your energy. Before you distance yourself from these people do yourself a favor – do a karmic relationship healing first. I’m sure you don’t want to attract the same kinds of communication problems in the future.

Healing Crystals For Anxiety – The Ultimate Guide

Published

healing crystals for anxiety image

We have all been anxious about uncertain or unsafe situations at some point in our lives. I know I have. Sometimes I get worried about the things that can affect my loved ones and me, but these are beyond my control. I know mothers also worry about accidents that can occur at school, whether they will be able to provide for their education, and the possibility these children falling prey to pedophiles.

However, did you know that a slight dose of anxiety in your life now and then gives you an edge to picking out threats and escaping them? Therefore, what happens when the tension becomes too much?

Excessive or exaggerated worry about everyday life events tends to affect our daily routines. If not checked, it can become a concern. You have to address it before negative symptoms like restlessness, hot flashes, and irritability start to set in. Several effective natural alternative medicines that can treat anxiety are available. One age-old way of dealing with anxiety is by using crystal healing therapy.

So What Is Crystal-Healing Therapy?

Crystal healing therapy is natural treatment involving the use of crystals and other stones on your body. We then apply Reiki to cure and prevent illnesses like anxiety.

Celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Miranda Kerr, and Spencer Pratt are using healing crystals in their hectic career routines. Healing crystals for anxiety are innumerable.

Understanding Sound Therapy And Its Healing Effect

Published

on

Sound Healing Image

Despite there being so many treatments and therapy options, sound healing’s popularity is increasing. Indeed, who would imagine that healing of say, Parkinson’s disease can come from the human voice or objects that resonate? But it’s happening! So in this article, I will discuss what sound healing and sound therapy are all about. I will look at its origin and how it works. And finally, elaborate on audio therapy options available for you today.

What Is Sound Healing Therapy?

When I mention sound healing therapy, I am referring to the practice of combining sound, instruments, and songs for therapeutic purposes. In other words, sound therapy is the use of music, sounds of nature, and musical instruments to cure both physical (for example pain, injuries and high blood pressure) and mental (for example post-traumatic stress learning disabilities and stuck emotions) disorders.

The concept behind sound healing is the scientific fact that everything vibrates at specific frequencies. Sound healing harnesses the power of these vibrations in promoting wellness in the human system. If you or your loved one have ever struggled with stress, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, or even insomnia, then you know how vital it is to find the right remedy.

Why Music?

sound therapy image

Have you ever woken up one day and all you do is rhyming the lyrics of the last song you heard playing on the radio? I certainly do. And sometimes I hum in low tones too. Music is food for the soul. A wedding or a ceremony without music is boring. Music identifies human beings with their culture, creed, and religion. It is also used to show love and portrays emotions in boredom and dance when elated to have fun.

A Little History

The use of sound to cure both physical and mental health issues is as old as the history of humankind. Pythagoras, the father of mathematics, made a connection between mathematical progressions and tones and harmonics. He believed that order and harmony revolved around musical intervals and that mathematics’ inspiration came from spiritual creation. In short, he discovered that vibrations have healing power.

Ancient cultures too have linked sound healing to the creation of the universe. In the year 200 B.C., a Greek traveler called Demetrius is recorded in history to have used vowel sound chants for healing. The Greeks, in general, used musical instruments in their healing chapels and sanatoriums.

Tibetan monks used the singing bowls which they just rang or used together with chants or sacred mantras.

Tibetan singing bowl image

In the Biblical context, David played an instrument (the harp) to restore mental stability in King Saul. Singing and praises were also used in the biblical times to relieve physical bondage.

The South Americans too used ‘Icaros’ sound healing through songs and chants to dispel illnesses.

During the World War II in 1940, the United States military used music in the therapeutic and restoring of health to its army members. That period is considered to be the birth of music therapy.

It is these old sound therapy practices that we have adopted today to provide physical and mental healing.

How Sound Therapy Works

In a nutshell, the human cells are in a coherently aligned structure similar to that of an orchestra. But when a person undergoes any physical or mental stress, the cells pull out of their alignment.

Tibetan singing bowls healing image

So what happens if the pressure persists?

A minor distortion will have ripple effects on the entire body and mind causing a complex web of disharmonies to the rest of the body. So from the outside, your out-of-tune body will start to show symptoms of physical pain, insomnia, and allergies among other adverse effects.

To correct this, sound therapy takes advantage of the fact that our bodies are 70% water which is an excellent conductor of sound waves to bring back the harmony. Sound travels as vibrations throughout the human body and helps to shift the brainwave state to a stable frequency that the brainwave can attune to (entrainment).

Sound Healing Therapy Image

Have you ever heard of sonic toothbrushes?

They use the concept of sound healing therapy to give relief to people living with a constant ear ringing sensation.

Sound healing therapy is in two categories namely:

  1. Music and sound for meditation, relaxation, learning, productivity and spiritual development.
  2. Sound healing for medical uses.

Different Kinds of Sound Therapy

With an endless list of sound therapy techniques, below are some of the methods commonly used today:

  • Chants of Mantras – Examples include the Sanskrit and Tibetan mantras. We mainly use chanting in meditation and relaxation.
  • Drumming – For example, shamanic drumming which alters your state of consciousness and moves energy.

sound therapy drumming image

  • Chimes – These are bells or metal bars that we tune and strike to produce melodies. They hung in large numbers on temples, shrines, and pagodas.
  • Bowls – For example the Himalayan singing bowls used in yoga, personal rituals and as signals of the beginning and end of Buddhist silent meditation cycles.
  • Vocal Toning – These give you the ability to fine-tune your body.
  • Tuning forks – A therapist taps the forks to instantly alter a person’s biochemistry and align the muscle tone, organs, and nervous system into balance. They have specific healing frequencies and harmonics.

Tuning forks image

  • Vibroacoustic – It uses sound to produce vibrations that are then applied to the body to facilitate healing.
  • Cymatics – We apply sound waves to physical matter to bring healing.
  • Ultrasound – Uses sound waves above the range of human hearing to treat medical problems like a muscle injury.
  • Binaural beat frequencies These frequencies entrain people into particular states of consciousness.
  • Altering brainwave states – Help people with disorders and facilitate creative expression.

Importance Of Sound Therapy For Spiritual Development And Meditation

We achieve spiritual growth by shedding our negative and unreal thoughts and notions and replacing them with a more conscious being. Similarly, we can use sound therapy to alter our spiritual bodies positively. Yoga music, a form of sound healing, sets an emotional tone that soothes your senses while practicing.

Binaural Beats image

Through sound meditation, you can achieve serenity and self-acceptance because when you listen to your root frequency, you reach a more centered and grounded awareness in life. We also use tuning forks to enhance massage, acupressure, and meditation.

Other advantages of using sound therapy include:

  • It helps in achieving a state of relaxation.
  • Resonating frequencies remove blockages and toxins in the body. Consequently, they help treat various stress-related illnesses including asthma, ADHD, insomnia, and high blood pressure.
  • Disintegrating chronic diseases like cancer.
  • It reduces stress.
  • By utilizing the resonant frequency state of body organs, sound healing cures body organs.
  • It improves sleep.
  • Stimulating circulation.
  • It helps in recovery from trauma.
  • Cleansing negative energy and emotions.
  • It enhances your attention span.
  • Reduces irritability.
  • It makes you less sensitive to contrary sounds in your surroundings.

In Conclusion

Sound healing therapy still remains a mystery to many. However, I can attest to the positive impact sound therapy offers. Furthermore, music was neither discovered nor invented; it is within us all. Even though we still needed more research, the current reviews are enough evidence that it is quite sufficient for your emotional, physiological, neurological, and physical well-being. Consider it an alternative to failed medical therapies. Visit a sound therapist today.

Read This Before Buying Or Using Incense For Your Meditations

Published

on

incense guide image

Since ancient times, incense has been used in the East, Egypt, Babylon and America for healing, meditation, cleansing houses, and temples. Recipes of their preparation were passed down from generation to generation. The scope of their application has not changed much to date: incense is used to treat various diseases, to disinfect the air, for meditation, as an offering, for ritual ceremonies, and also just for enjoying their pleasant fragrance. But do you know how to choose and use incenses properly? Let me share with you the guide for using and shopping for incense!

Different Kinds Of Incenses

Incenses can be different in their form:

  • mixtures,
  • briquettes,
  • sticks,
  • pyramids,
  • oils.

Moreover, they can be different in composition.

incense sticks Image

Oil Incenses

This kind of incense has two components in their composition:

  • the base, which perfectly absorbs essential oils and is capable of smoldering;
  • the oil itself or the composition of oils.

You can find oil incenses in the form of sticks, plasticine or lace.

Oil Mixture Incenses

The composition of oil mixture incenses is not only oil-treated coal-based but it can also include honey, melted butter, powder plants, and manure (if you’re vegan you don’t want to buy this kind).

Herbal And Floral Incense

Incenses of this kind are calm and closer to natural odors. They are good for aromatherapy as a soothing agent.

Honey And Dung Incense

The production of honey and dung incense goes back to antiquity. They were used during the time of Ramayana. The main difference between honey incense is that they have a barely noticeable sweet flavor that accompanies the main smell. Honey incense is used for aromatization of premises, aromatherapy, as well as for Pujas.

Most people feel weird about using dung incense. Indeed, for us, dung is considered to be bad-smelling and unclean. Our opinion about dung is very different from the meaning of the ancient scripts. And these scripts say that on the basis of cow manure not only incense can be produced (which, it should be noted, does not smell like manure itself) but also medicinal products. To distinguish manure incense is possible only by external rough appearance and the dense smoke emitted when it’s burning.

Camphor Cardamom Or Camphor Itself

The disadvantage of this kind of incense is that the quality of it slightly decreases, but the aromatic and medicinal properties remain longer. Camphor incense is good for body detox, as well as to cleanse space from spirits and negative energy. These incenses have immune-strengthening properties and contribute to the prevention of respiratory and epidemic diseases.

Cone-Shaped Incense

In the middle ages, cone-shaped (sandalwood) incense penetrated into Europe, where they were appreciated and were burned exclusively on major holidays. Cone-shaped incense is made by pressing a mixture of aromatic herbs, or with the addition of a small amount of fir resin, juniper, and other plants or without fastening additives. It is important to note that these incenses have the shape of a pyramid. This is a huge advantage, as the smoke released during combustion has more energy than the smoke from other incense. The method of application is similar to that of other incenses.

Lace Incense

It is another bizarre form of incense. It is a coil of slowly smoldering hemp rope impregnated with some essential oil. Here it should be noted that the aroma is very, very extraordinary: the duet of burnt hemp rope with a burnt sandal or red tree. In India, lace incense is in great demand among traders and, apparently, buyers too, in particular at vegetable markets. Street hairdressers and shoemakers are among the “gourmets” of this fragrance. To date, in majority other countries, the lace incense has not found a place of application.

Powdery Incense

Their composition is exclusively natural, the replacement of natural components with the chemical would be obvious. For the most part, powdery incense is made in Tibet, although in ancient times in Russia the same incense was used to fumigate patients. Also, shamans use herbal powders in their rites. But they are rarely used for Pujas. With the departure of the Egyptian, Babylonian and ancient Greek civilizations the tradition of burning loose incense in the temples have exhausted.

Chinese Incense

Chinese Incense Image

Chinese incense is characterized by a subtle mystical aroma with subtle transitions of one scent to another. This group is dominated by sandalwood and floral fragrances without a basis. Chinese incenses with bamboo sticks are less common. Ancient Chinese invention is the spiral – thin unbonded incense, swirling in a few circles. In China, it is believed that they should burn clockwise, creating an “energy column” so that through it the cosmic message descends down to man. There is a huge variety of colored Chinese spirals, which have a unique, wonderful and delicate aroma, used in various rites and for purification.

Tibetan Incense

Tibetan incenses image

Tibetan incense is a unique masterpiece of the ancient art of healing and worshipping Deities. It plays an important role in aromatherapy medicine. The secrets of making Tibetan sticks and powders have reached our civilization from the depths of centuries, and today these ancient recipes are passed down from generation to generation. In the fullness of time in the highlands of the Himalayas people collect manually all the necessary herbs. Further, these herbs are subjected to thorough ecological expertise and control over the observance of the quality. In ancient times, wise Tibetan monks collected these divine herbs in the mountains for meditation, worship, and treatment. Despite the fact that Tibet was captured by China and the Tibetans were destroyed by the masses, this sacred art lives to this day. The descendants of Tibetan monks moved to India and Nepal, continuing the ancient tradition in a foreign land.

To prepare their magical compositions, herb collectors had to climb the mountains on secret paths known only to them, and collect herbs, roots, and minerals there. As their land was occupied, they returned and the production of incense was carried out in India and Nepal. Unfortunately, most of the Tibetan incense is not carefully enough milled, which slightly complicates the process of burning and the intensity of the smoke. The composition of Tibetan sticks usually includes up to forty components. These fragrances do not have a bamboo base and gradually change their scent when burning, adding new notes to the original scent.

The Bottom Line

incense burning image

Despite all the benefits that incense can provide you should be aware that they can also harm your health. As you know, incenses are made from different parts of odorous plants – bark, roots, flowers, resin and essential oils. The base of incense is usually a thin bamboo stick. When burning, all this releases carcinogenic substances (such as polyaromatic hydrocarbons, carbonyl compounds, and benzene), which contribute to the development of cancer. People know about the destructive properties of carcinogens for quite a long time. That’s why you need to be cautious about using the incenses all the time.

You should be aware that it’s not a good idea to use incenses every day. You may use them for your meditations or cleanse the energy of your house or aura. But make sure that the windows are open and air circulating in the room while you’re burning the incense. It is very important to keep the windows open! Otherwise, you may experience all the side effects of inhaling the carcinogens.
