Did you know each and everyone of us emits a sound frequency? According to Dr. Joe Dispenza, we are 99.9999% made up of energy, and only 0.00001% made up of matter. Therefore, we can effect our human body using light and sound. These forms of wellness and healing are safe and gentle and create "major healing with minor effort." Our thoughts and feelings effect our frequency, how our body instrument vibrates and the flow of energy in our body. For example, the thoughts and feelings of love, acceptance, compassion and appreciation cause our body to vibrate at a higher frequency and causes us to feel empowered and feel our body instrument "in harmony." If we think negative thoughts, which are of a lower vibration such as separation, judgement, criticism, fear and lack, we will feel heavy, dense, less elevated and out of harmony. Using sound is a quick and easy...

You know that feeling when you meet a person and you feel an instant connection or repulsion? That’s your intuition at work. Do you receive a gut feeling about things, and then ignore it? Imagine living aligned to your true heart’s desires and what brings you clarity and a sense of lightness. We’re all born with an internal navigation system. In our society, most of us are too wrapped up in our thoughts to be able to tune into our vital advisor. It’s never too late to strengthen your intuition, as it is our true essential nature TO BE INTUITIVE, just as all animals are. What your intuition IS: That little voice inside when you are waking up in the morning that reminds you of something important you have to do today AND that inner voice that gives you the "red flags" when you are going out on a...

  CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD FREE MEDITATION TO AMPLIFY YOUR RELEASE and FLOW ABILITIES. WHAT IS OUR NATURE? It is our nature to love, heal, reproduce, digest, process, and eliminate. It is also our nature to grow, die and transform, just as all the trees and animals do. It is our nature to feel pain and pleasure, to express a wide spectrum of emotions. We are NOT designed to hold, to supress or avoid feeling our emotions. When we are not living aligned with our True Nature, what is natural for us, we cause our stress hormone to be elevated. When we are under chronic stress we actually block the flow of energy, slow down all those natural processes and lower our vitality. Healing is dampened when we go against our nature. Flow IS our nature. Our bodies and minds are happiest and most healthy when we simply ARE present and fully engaged...

Sensuality refers to "experiencing pleasure through the senses." Have you ever felt the pleasure of a peacock feather lightly brushed over your body? When you stroke a feather over your skin it causes you to heighten your sense of wherever you are being touched. This brings you more fully into the present moment and relaxes you.             A tender touch, the delicious smell of fresh roses, a romantic song played under a candlelit room, a deliciously aromatic meal prepared with love, a delicious glass of wine- all of these captivate our senses, if we choose to engage fully in the moment. A person that takes in more fully the experience of the NOW through their five senses is a sensual person. The opposite would be a person who is distracted from the moment because they are inundated with thoughts "in their head" all the time. A person who...

Shrink and Tone Your Waist While Energizing Yourself and Connecting To The Core Of Who You Are written by Michelle Alva, Holistic Physical Therapist, Yoga Therapist and Energy Healer. Do you sit for more than 3-4 hours per day? Did you know that your abdominal corset and pelvic floor muscles basically fall asleep while we sit? When we sit at a desk for too long, slouch and sink into our couch these muscles fall asleep.   Our abdominal and pelvic floor muscles are two important muscle groups that work together to create a dynamic corset of stability for our low back and our pelvis. These muscles however sometimes become atrophied and weak from poor posture, poor chronic sitting postures and lack of exercise and activity, especially after giving birth. We can view the waist area of the body as the middle or "center" of our body and when tone and active...

                              Each one of us is a vital collection of powerful interconnected molecules of energy in our vast universe. Each one of us has the power to manifest more peace, love, balance, harmony, connection and profound healing on our planet. All we have to do is BE in a state of unconditional love and acceptance of who we are, of everything that IS (as much as possible throughout the day).                         When we are fully engaged in the present moment, we heal and we BECOME peace, connection, love, and feel the powerful force of creation- the pulse of the universe, God, Source, whatever name you like to describe this timeless and boundless force, that is our nature. HOW TO FEEL THE EXPANSIVE AND BOUNDLESS FORCE OF CREATION THAT FLOWS THROUGH YOU IN EVERY MOMENT: Breathe deeply and notice how you feel as you expand and receive the breath of life through your...

  What Does It Mean To Be Spiritual? Have you ever thought about what it means and looks like to "be spiritual"? Have you ever thought about how spiritual YOU are, or if your significant other is ‚Äúspiritual‚Äù enough for you? I hear friends say things like ‚Äúit‚Äôs so hard to meet a spiritual guy‚Äù, or ‚ÄúI met this great guy, but he‚Äôs just not that spiritual.‚Äù What does ‚Äúbeing spiritual‚Äù really mean? For the sake of simplicity, I will not address religion today, just pure spirituality. Definition of Spirituality Spirituality is the concept of an alleged immaterial reality; an inner path enabling a person to discover the soul or essence of his/her being. We get to discover the Divine being that we are beyond space, time, our mind, thoughts, emotions and body when we engage in spiritual practices. Thanks to the science of quantum physics, we now know what the sages knew...

  Did you know that more than 8o% of all diseases are attributed to chronic stress? Add relaxing activities into your daily life, such as in the video above, to counteract the negative side effects of chronic stress and tension. Most of the reasons why we need to calm is because we overuse our minds to think thousands of thoughts which more often than not lead our bodies into fear and flight or fight mode. Too often we allow our thoughts to lead us into states of chronic stress, anxiety or depression. We all know today based on current scientific research that integrating the practice of daily forms of meditation alleviates the negative side effects of chronic stress, anxiety, depression and a host of other conditions. Link here for the researched benefits of meditation. Did you know that the way you live your life can actually BE a form of...
