By Cynthia Sue Larson Have you ever wondered why some people age gracefully, seeming like they look pretty much the same now as decades earlier, while staying actively engaged in fun activities, learning new things, and staying active… and other people slip into steady decline? If you have noticed this and wondered, “What’s up with that?” you’ll […]
Your vision is not compromised because of weak eye muscles. Rather they’re too tensed to work properly, so you have to relax them. The Bates method teaches you how.
Humans have essentially become addicted to stress. There is “good stress” (eustress) and “bad stress” (distress)—meaning, you experience certain stressful experiences as unpleasant and seek to avoid them, but others you may actually seek out because they’re fun.
The important thing to realize about heart opening is that it’s totally natural for our spirit and utterly unnatural for our body. The latter is due to the fact that we have so many heart-closing daily activities in our culture. The main problem is that we sit in chairs most of the time. We even sit in one as we drive!
After years of working with my yoga students and life coach clients, I’ve learned that 3rd chakra tends to be the problem spot. It’s the place where a lot of people – especially women and people who consider themselves “spiritual” – lose their chakra power.
The fascinating new science of quantum bioholography accepts as its core premise that human beings are, in essence, holograms composed of intersecting frequencies of energy transduced and directed by DNA. This line of thinking, supported by compelling theory and evidence, has led physician Richard Gerber, author of VIBRATIONAL MEDICINE, to state bluntly that humans are “crystallized or precipitated light.” Quantum bioholography is related to the emerging field of wave-genetics, a leading-edge science that employs what has been called “torsion” energy generated by sound and light waves to stimulate a self-healing potential in DNA. This science recognizes that our bioenergy blueprint—which we can access ourselves by stimulating DNA through linguistic means—holds the key to permanent healing and radical transformation.
As mentioned in previous articles, it is the belief in the method we apply that heals us, and not necessarily the method itself (and there are good methods, don’t get me wrong). The unequivocal belief in something helping engages our innate healing capacity. Mr Wright demonstrated that marvelously. His is such an amazing example of the reality of the placebo (conviction that something helps you) and also the nocebo effect (conviction that something doesn’t help you or is harmful) – and thus the mind body connection.
I must admit I have a soft spot for the sacral chakra. It’s the home of the Divine Feminine, and it represents the goddess energy that is badly needed on this planet. Doing second chakra poses boosts your fertility, creativity and sensuality.
Specific yoga poses are directly related to your body’s energy centers known as your chakras. These chakras affect every aspect of your life. So this means for instance, that doing first chakra poses can affect your finances, doing second chakra poses can affect your sex life, doing third chakra poses can affect your personal power and confidence, and so on.
In new data from a 14-year controlled study, meditation (not medication) was so effective for healing that it reduced medical expenses by 28%.
Sleep deprivation. Anxiety. Insomnia. Eating Disorder. I don’t want to scare you with these words, but the fact is that most people I know have had times of angst, anxiety and restlessness. What’s scarier than this cohort of stress-related words is Hollywood’s depiction of the act. ‘Zombie-Hypnosis-Power-Turns-Girl-Into-Monster?’ What You Should Know About Hypnotherapy The human […]
Ayurveda teaches that we are all born with a set constitution called prakriti (means nature or first creation in Sanskrit) which is determined at the moment of conception. Determining factors are the constitution of both parents (genetics), the state of health of the mother throughout her pregnancy, environmental factors such as the season and even time of day when conception occurred, and our karmic memory (what we carry over from past lives). Just like we cannot change the color of our eyes or how tall we are, our prakriti never changes.
It is from the three doshas (forces or bodily humors) known as Vata, Pitta and Kapha that seven body types (emotional, physical and spiritual) are formed. Our individual combination of the doshas create our unique prakriti.
Raise your hand if on your path to becoming healthier you might have become a little obsessive-compulsive. A little confused. A little over-zealous. A little C R A Z Y!
I remember clearly back in 2009 when I was a student at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition being asked a similar question. I was just emerging from seven years under a dark cloud of fibromyalgia. With each month that passed, my pain was lessening.
I felt triumphant and I had enrolled at IIN so that I could learn how to help others accomplish the same thing I had – heal from a chronic condition holistically.
And then I heard the term orthorexia nervosa uttered for the first time. When roughly two thirds of a class of 1,400 students raised their hands to answer YES to the above question, we were more than slightly stunned to hear that we just might have an eating disorder.
In the latest episode of Conscious Inquiry, Alexis speaks with alternative healthcare practitioner Mark Mincolla about the alarming rise in autism, GMO’s and other health assaults and what we can do to take back our power and regain our health! Just recently the Center for Disease Control announced an alarming statistic – 1 in 68 […]
