Choosing a Crystal For the Heart Chakra

All crystals are magical when you think about it. Magic can be defined as being part of any natural wonder of the Earth. The entire Earth is made up of one third quartz, and quartz is basically fossilized water, it is only natural that they would hold a magical drawing to humans who are made up of 98% water. A crystal has a magnetic field of vibrational energy. That energy can subtly change the electromagnetic field within our physical bodies when laid upon a person. Using Chrysoprase as a healing crystal can provide a soothing feeling to a lonely and broken heart. The green chrysoprase crystal is associated with the heart chakra. It is especially important when using a crystal for healing, that the crystal be cleansed and charged before you use it. This crystal, being associated with the heart chakra, can provide a link to foster emotional balance within a person by laying their trust in the Goddess. When that trust is built upon it allows a person to learn to go with the ebb and flow of life.

What Is Applied Kinesiology?

Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a unique form of complementary therapy that relies on very light touch to asses the state of the body. In an AK session, the patient usually lies on a massage couch, fully clothed, and the therapist will test various muscles to determine what is wrong with the patient. Often, it can feel like nothing is happening at all, but people report some amazing relief, often from very chronic problems. This form of alternative therapy treats everything from structural imbalances to headaches, insomnia, allergies and stress related disorders. In AK, the idea is that internal organs are linked to outside muscles, and the state of one reflects the state of the other. It was developed in the 1960s by a man named Geogre Goodheart. Goodheart was a chiropractor and occultist and combined some elements of chinese medicine meridians with some older chiropractic manuals to form the system. Muscle testing is the cornerstone of applied kinesiology. The usual one demonstrated is called the "delta test" and costists of the patient standing with an arm outstretched while holding a food substance that they might have an allergy to.

History Of Zen Shiatsu

Zen Shiatsu as currently practiced has only been around since the 1970s when Shizuto Masunaga formulated the system from his training in Namikoshi Shiatsu, Western Psychology and research into older Chinese Medicine texts. Shiatsu literally means "finger pressure" and the Zen portion added by Masunaga refers to the state that the shiatsu practitioner should be in while giving shiatsu. A relaxed, non-judgemental state that simply observes rather than attaches to anything that is happening. Shiatsu's roots can be traced back to more ancient forms of massage that were practised in China called Tuina and Anma as well as native Japanese massage called Teate. Somewhere around the 6th Century AD, China and Japan began commercial trade. This obviously brought with it cultural exchange as commercial trade always does. China at this point already had a very comprehensive system of medicine which included acupuncture, moxa, herbs and massage. Japan took many of these systems and amalgamated them into its own culture, changing them slightly, as always happens.

Get Some R R- Rest and Recovery

These are usually the symptoms of over training or lack of recovery. But it is not always solely based on "over training". It's usually a combination of a lot of things. This is mostly based on the "Training Triangle". Training, Nutrition, Recovery. You're probably training too much, too often. Not getting enough of the proper nutrients your bodies needs to recover from hard training. Then recovery is short changed by the lack of the first two. Also, doing the same routine for a long period of time will make you mentally stale as well as physically. Most experts agree that you should change your exercise program after every 4-8 weeks. Then you should also take an entire week off from hard training every 8-10 weeks. When this happens it's time for change. Usually this means taking some time off from the gym. You will need more than a couple days; usually a week or two is needed. This will give your mind and body time away from the gym to regroup. After a week or two away you will be anxious to get back into the gym and hit it hard for another couple months.

Foods Can Be Dangerous To Your Health

The lifestyle of today is very much complicated... and very much dangerous. Even just by simply living an everyday life has a lot of risks for your health. Why, even the foods that you may be eating right now are very dangerous to your health. Unfortunately, we all need to accept this reality. On the other hand, fortunately, we can do something about it and if you think of clean and toxin-free living, forget about conventional medicines.

You drink, harmful chemicals enter your system. You get some fun in the sun, you are vulnerable to free radicals and if you take medicines prescribed by your doctor, you risk yourself from side-effects.

Stress and Illness - The Stories Our Bodies Tell

Years ago I was doing a massage trade with a fellow massage therapist. It was my turn to receive! And it was a hot summer's day in Boulder, Colorado. We were using my home office which had no air conditioning but what's a little exchanged sweat between friends? As my friend Lyn began massaging my neck which had a history of always locking up and holding enormous amounts of tension I had the unusual experience of losing control of my arms. I mean they just started trembling and flapping about on the table like they had a mind and dance of their own. Lyn asked me "What's going on with that?" and I responded, "I have no idea, I'm not even making it happen." And we proceeded with the massage as any truth seekers would curious and slightly mesmerized by what my body was doing. Before we knew it I started to get goose bumps all over my body. I was instantly freezing cold-even on this 90 degree day in Colorado. And as I focused on breathing through the work and giving my body permission to shake with flailing arms I had this image behind my eyelids of being 10 years old and playing stick ball with my father.

A Rusting Body Can't Watch Over You - But You Can Stop The Process

Our pH balance can detect our body's acidic or alkaline state. Too much acidity can cause our liver to deteriorate and cause a rustic effect from the inside out. And ideal pH to aim for is 6.4 for both urine and saliva. If our body is too acidic, it will draw on body fluid, lymph, intracellular and extra-cellular fluids to re-establish the balance. Excessive acidity attacks the body and causes irritation. If sweat is too acidic, it can inflame tissues and irritate the skin. Do you suffer from burning urine, joint pain or hemorrhoids? Do you notice irregular sleep patterns, increased occurrence of colds, flu episodes, infections and headaches and decreased physical and mental energy, leg cramps, arthritis or osteoporosis? Virtually all degenerative diseases including cancer, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, kidney and gall stones, and tooth decay are associated with excess acidity in the body. Acids contained in foods are released during the digestive process or used by the body.
