The Incredible Healing Effects Of Tibetan Singing Bowls

By Matt Caron

t might come as a shock, but there are real reasons Singing Bowls have been used for centuries.

Turns out they’re not just for fun! Their whole purpose is to restore vibratory frequencies of the body, mind, and soul that are out-of-harmony and diseased. The sounds they emit work as a type of energy medicine that has been known to heal pain, depression, and stress disorders. Interestingly, the healing process works by training the brain waves so as to synchronize with the sounds of the bowl. These unique tones emitted will prepare you for deep meditation, intuitive messages, as well as creative thinking. For those who have tried this technique before, you know the sonic waves emitted by these bowls awaken our ability to hear much more than what we would normally. As we listen to these sounds, we tend to feel them just as much as we hear them.

The director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in New York, Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, says,

“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.”

So with all this interest, it begs the question: How exactly do these Singing Bowls work in the healing process?

Tibetan Singing Bowls: The Healing Bowl Process

In the east, health is looked at much differently than in the west; illness is thought of as a manifestation of disharmony within the body, such as an imbalance in the cells or a given organ. Having said that, since matter is energy that vibrates at different rates, the structure of matter can be changed when you alter the rate of vibration. The body is said to be healthy only when each cell and organ resonates in harmony with the entire body. What these bowls do is cause the brain to switch to Theta brainwave frequencies that heighten one’s intuition, clarity of mind, as well as deep meditative and peaceful states. This positively affects our nervous system and engages our relaxation reflex while also inhibiting the pain or stress response.

When this alignment occurs, health and healing all come into balance, creating deep harmony within and without. This can easily lead to spontaneous healing. As the great Tibetan master, Bodhisattva Gwalwa Karmapa puts it so finely, these Singing Bowls emit the “sound of the void” which is really the sound of the universe. Given that the science behind this method is slowly being uncovered, modern medicine is just starting to measure as well as validate its ability to heal our body, mind, and soul

6 Things You Can Do For A Happy, Balanced Life In 2021

By Loretta Jane

1. Switch to a plant-based diet

Medical and nutritional experts largely agree that a plant-based diet is best for overall health and wellness. That doesn’t mean you have to embrace vegetarianism, but rather that the majority of your foods should come from plant sources. Think loads of nuts and seeds, fruits, vegetables and heart-healthy oils. It should not come as a surprise that plant-based diets help improve gut health. They are packed with digestive-friendly fiber and often are high in water to help you meet hydration goals. Why does that matter? It turns out that one of the simplest things you can do to bring your emotional and physical health into balance is to show your gut some love. Gut bacteria are linked to so much more than digestion. Current research indicates that they are also involved in the immune response, leading to fewer or less severe bouts with common illnesses.

2. Learn a new skill

There are many reasons to learn a new skill, and moving toward a happier, more balanced life is just one of them. Learning something new is a great way to push yourself and gain self confidence. It can also help you meet new people that share similar interests. For career seekers, certain new skills look great on a resume and may help you land that dream job. All of those positives can directly improve happiness and overall mental health.

3. Focus on positive solutions

For a happy and balanced year, be part of the solution instead of the source of a problem. While that might sound harsh, the reality is you are part of one or the other. How you choose to view the world and respond to it will determine where you fit in the overall picture. Focusing on positive and upbeat solutions will put problems into perspective so they are no longer overwhelming. Breaking them down into manageable portions that you can overcome empowers you to move forward instead of staying stagnant.

4. Give thanks

Giving thanks is about so much more than a fall holiday or writing a note after receiving a gift. It is a state of mind that you can embrace each and every day. In fact, cultivating gratitude creates a positive mindset that helps you find more things to be grateful for in everyday life. The effects of gratitude are compounded, so, you will notice greater benefits after continued practice. How do you start a gratitude practice? Try one of these ideas to get started:

  • Keep a gratitude journal
  • Write a personal thank you note
  • Pray or meditate
  • Make and add to a gratitude jar

5. Seek out opportunities for engagement

Humans are naturally social creatures, and you need interaction with others to truly thrive and find balance. The amount and intensity of that interaction vary from person to person, but everyone needs at least some on occasion. If you are not able to physically visit with others, a phone call or video chat can meet the need.

6. Practice mindfulness

Mindfulness has gotten a lot of attention lately, and for good reason. While the scientific community resisted early studies about mindfulness-based practices, newer research shows a strong link between it and better mental health outcomes. Of course, balance isn’t just about mental health. There is also evidence that mindfulness reduces stress and improves physical health, allowing you to live a fuller, happier and more balanced life. If you are interested in starting a personal practice, try taking one of the many mindfulness courses online or download a few guided meditations to explore your options.

Whether you try one, a couple or all of these ideas, you will gain important tools to improve your overall life and restore balance to it.

Online dating

It seems everyone likes to advise those of us, who find ourselves “single” to try online dating.

While I personally know of success stories, I have not been one those people.

I am a complex human being to say the least. The chances I will be understood in a chat room is almost ZERO!

I pray that God, will bring my twin flame in another way. I have faith he will.

Thankful, Grateful & Blessed!

Valentine’s Day 2021

Valentine’s Day 2021. What can I say about V-Day 2021. After spending the last 12 months in an abusive relationship, I still didn’t want to spend another V-Day alone. I took him back for the millionth time, and decided I would make the best it, thinking he would also be grateful for the time together and make the best of it, but I was wrong.

My now ex, could not help himself, or better said he could not stop himself from being the same abusive person, he has shown me to be. His behavior has not seized in anyway but instead it has continued and become more frequent, between telling me what a terrible person I am, criticizing everything about me, the insentient put downs and aggressive way of grabbing me, trying to control my movement.

All I recite in my head is “believe people when they tell you who they are”, why has this been so difficult for me? Or has it? The truth is that I do believe it, I always have, my problem, is the lack of action, my lack of self love, and making myself my priority!

Not any more, I am my #1 priority, I will NOT allow anyone, no matter who they are to “tell” me who I am, what I think, and what others think of me. Keeping in mind what others think of me, is none of my business, it is a reflection of themselves.

It was snowing in Seattle, and the thought of driving in it, frightened me, but I knew I had to flee, I had to be free of the abuse, no matter the consequences, I prayed that God and my angels would keep me safe, they came through as they always do, I drove home without any issues and spent the day with my favorite person, MYSELF! Happy Valentine’s Day to me.

Thankful, Grateful & Blessed!

The Key To Creating Boundaries For Energetic Balance

By Hope Stavish

Boundaries for energetic balance is a goal of many who are spiritual. Spirituality is not about being positive all the time — in fact some of the strongest spiritual people are brave enough to confront things in themselves that are very difficult. To grow and evolve we must learn ourselves and our boundaries. Knowledge of self is a tenant in every religion, because the more you learn about yourself, the easier it will be to create boundaries with others.

People tend to look outside themselves for the answers. But harmony can only be formed from looking within. By examining the principles of harmony, we can see that we create our own reality. When you take the time to look within, it leads to a better balance with your external world. Introspection is helpful for setting boundaries for any relationship, work, or family situation. Therefore, the ability to look within is essential!

Looking within to form your own boundaries

When you feel something is off around you, it means that it is off. Trust your inner voice to guide you regarding things that make you feel uncomfortable or displaced. If something in your external circumstances feels like it doesn’t fit you, that usually indicates that you need to realign something within yourself. There are times that something outside ourselves effects our mood or feelings. Whether its a comment you didn’t like, a projection of someone’s imbalance, or anything that triggers you, it is an opportunity to recognize where you are giving your power and energy to the situation. This becomes a chance to examine yourself to take back your power and create a boundary either energetically or practically.

Creating a healthy space for boundaries

Looking closer at the principle of balance, it becomes clear that you will always get what you give out. It’s energetic physics. If you create balance within, it will reflect a better harmonious space for others. So, healing yourself from within will not only create a space of energetic balance for you, but also will be fulfilling to others. For example, a healthy space for yourself will help you establish boundaries with others, stick to your own standards, and create peace. Put effort into knowing yourself, your own preferences, and what makes your feel good. The more you learn about your likes and dislikes, the easier it will become to create this healthy space within.

The importance of intentions when forming boundaries

Intentions are the key to creating this type of internal harmonious space. Looking at the principle of alchemy, intentions based only on love and the highest good for all will bring your manifestations into fruition. This is essential to forming healthy boundaries. If you put effort into examining your own intentions, you will start to find that creating boundaries in a space of self-love are more effective. When setting boundaries you will be more successful if you are in a space of peace. Of course, it will take practice to root-out any anger or frustration before establishing any boundaries with others. But remember the goal here is to pull back your power in the situation. In order to do this, it will work best when you’re calm and level headed.


Applying practical boundaries

Saying no

Learning to say no to things that displease you is a great way to form a practical boundary. If you start here, with simply removing your energy by saying no to anything that is out of balance, you will start to see results both internally and externally. By saying no to things you don’t like, you will create room to find the things that please you. Often times, we can overextend our own energy by agreeing to things that don’t align with our own happiness. Say no to anything that makes you feel imbalanced, do so without fear, guilt, or shame and you will create practical boundaries that serve you well.

Focusing on yourself

In order to create practical boundaries in any situation, like a love relationship or your job environment, it is important to keep your focus on self. You want to avoid any urge to people please so that you will stand firm in your conviction. This has nothing to do with being selfish or making decisions based off of ego. Instead, it is a way to center your own energy. By pulling the focus back to self, you can retain your power in the situation. When you are creating practical boundaries, you want to remain confident in your own limits and preferences.

Effective communication

Equally as important as everything above, is the language you use to form these boundaries. You want to make any boundaries set in words of empowerment so it’s a clear limitation to others. Avoid any words like ‘you should’, ‘you could’, or ‘you would’ because energetically these are words of uncertainty. Using words such as ‘I am’, ‘I can’, and ‘I wil’l are a better choice because they pull the power back to self. In conclusion, introspection and knowledge of self will make it easier to create healthy energetic or practical boundaries. Intentions are the key to manifesting effective boundaries. Finding and developing a space of harmony within will help to create practical boundaries with others.

5 Simple Techniques To Open Your Heart Chakra – How To Open Anahata

By Paola Borrescio

In this short article, I am aiming to help you by giving you 5 Simple Techniques To Open Your Heart Chakra, the chakra of love, compassion, empathy and forgiveness.

1.Affirmations

Positive affirmations have got the power to get straight in your subconscious mind and reprogram your brain without you having to make any kind of effort.

2. Food

The traditional colour of the heart chakra is green but it exists in another frequency as well, which comes in pink.

Any green or pink vegetable or fruit, which help you to detox your body and strength your immune system is highly recommended.

3. Play with colours in your daily life

Wearing green or pink clothing and surrounding yourself by these colours, naturally, help your heart chakra to easily rebalance.

4. Crystals

The best crystals to open up the heart chakra are pink quartz, clear quartz, jade, green calcite, green aventurine, rhodonite. Generally speaking, quartz is by many considered the most powerful stones of all and luckily it is also the cheapest one.

5. Fresh air

The element of the heart chakra is air and so it is very important to breathe deeply and slowly in the fresh air too, let your lungs breathe as much as possible in nature: in a park, on the beach, in the woods

What’s the one big red flag that distinguishes someone with NPD from people who just have emotional difficulty coping with life?

Elinor Greenberg·SatPsychologist, Author, Lecturer, and Consultant on Narcissistic DisordersWhat’s the one big red flag that distinguishes someone with NPD from people who just have emotional difficulty coping with life?

The Short Answer: Imagine you are out in public with a new lover and you are on the way to a restaurant or a party together. You are having an argument. It rapidly escalates. Suddenly, the person angrily walks away and leaves you standing alone in the street. You are stunned and unsure what to do next. You do not know whether to run after them, wait to see if the person comes back, or leave and go back home. Every time I have been in that situation, the other person turned out to have a Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

It is a rather obvious sign of “splitting” (you are now the all-bad enemy), a lack of emotional empathy, a lack of self-control, a hair trigger temper, and a desire to punish, publicly humiliate, and take revenge on ANYONE who angers them.

Punchline: Not everyone with a Narcissistic Personality Disorder will angrily walk away and leave their partner standing alone in the street. However, when it does happen, I have found it to be a pretty reliable red flag for Narcissistic Personality Disorder that I would not ignore. If it happens once, it will happen again.

20 Ways to Increase your vibration

The good news is that raising your vibrational frequency is not that difficult. Here are 20 ways in which you can increase your vibrational frequency!

Alter Your Diet

Focus on consuming cleaning, high vibrational foods such as:

  • Fresh, ripe fruit and vegetables (preferably local, organic, and in season)
  • Whole, organic grains
  • Organic beans, lentils, and legumes
  • Organic nuts and seeds
  • Spring water from the source
  • Himalayan salt, Celtic Sea salt, or other mineralized salts
  • Herbal tea
  • Green smoothies

Reconnect with Nature

Try walking barefoot to reconnect with the energy in the earth.

Get Rid of Negative Energy

Write it down, scream, jump, or punch a pillow – find a way to discharge it!

Change Your Thoughts

Positive thoughts have a high vibrational frequency while negative thoughts have a low vibrational frequency. Make a choice to stay positive!

Participate in Joyful Movement

Joyful movement stimulates the release of endorphins, which help to increase your vibrational frequency.

Do what Makes You Feel Good

Pick an activity that brings you joy, and do it on a regular basis. This can include snuggling, painting, or just simply being with someone special in your life

Listen to Music

Music has an extremely high vibrational frequency and crosses all boundaries. Make sure you’re listening to something you enjoy!

Dance

Moving your body in a way that makes you feel good helps increase your vibrational frequency. Turn up some tunes and shake it!

Spend time with Animals

Animals have high vibrational frequencies, so when you reconnect with them, your frequency increases.

Experience Aromatherapy

Essential oils start at 52 Hz and go as high as 320 Hz, which is the frequency of rose oil. Clinical research shows that therapeutically grade essential oils have the highest frequency of any natural substance known to man, creating an environment in which disease, bacteria, viruses, and fungi cannot live.

Laugh and Smile

Anything that brings you joy will help increase your vibrational frequency! Make a point to do something that makes you laugh (or at least smile) every day.

Show Gratitude

You can make neurobiological changes with a shift in your focus on gratitude. Start with the basics of being alive, having at least one friend, etc.

Meditate

Meditation has been shown to increase your vibrational frequency while calming the mind so you’re in a heightened state of consciousness.

Stop Complaining and Gossiping

Are the things you’re talking about bringing you more of what you want or bringing you down a path that lowers your vibrational frequency instead?

Practice Yoga

Yoga means “union” and helps to connect the body and mind to raise your vibrational frequency.

Hug Someone

Human contact has been shown to significantly raise vibrational frequency. It is also known to be healing and soothing.

Get a Massage

Again, human contact is a fast and effective way to increase that frequency. Plus, talk about getting rid of negative energy!

Breathe

Bringing in this basic force of life and flooding the body with oxygen is a great way to increase your vibrational frequency. Focus on taking time to breathe deeply and slowly.

Sing

Whether it’s in the shower or a crowd of hundreds, singing is a great way to bring in new energy and increase your vibrational frequency.

Love

Love is the single most powerful thing you can do to raise your vibrational frequency quickly and for long periods of time!

To Wrap it Up

Your vibrational frequency matters when it comes to your health and happiness, and ultimately, it’s up to you how high it is!

At ITN, we understand the power of personalization and encourage you to do what works for you and your needs! Take measures into your own hands, and make a point to do a least a few items on this list every day.
