|Deep REM sleep restores vital life force energy.|
It is through sleep and nourishment that we acquire more of this energy. This is also why being around negative people drains you. The energy of people we are intimately or emotionally connected to affect this energy. The energy of locations, objects (such as certain crystals) and even electro-magnetic fields also affect this energy. Many people do not
know that energy plays a key role in our health and how we manage
stress levels on an energetic level. Our energetic body, also known as
the chakra system is something intensively studied in Ayurvedic medicine
and has close ties to Chinese Medicine and the study of meridians.
Many of us within the food allergy community know about the scientific research and peanut allergy treatments of Dr. Li using Chinese Medicine. Maybe like me, you even bought the fascinating book about her work by Henry Ehrlich, “Food Allergies: Traditional Chinese Medicine, Western Science and the Search For a Cure”. People travel to her from all over the United States because of her effective treatment for peanut allergy and several other food allergies. However, since her treatments are not covered by insurance, the high expense for travel and monthly visits for the treatments could deter people from seeking her help. My point is, if Chinese Medicine holds the key to treatment and these herbs or mushrooms actually help to unblock chakras on levels many don’t understand, why argue?
Why is it important to set energetic boundaries?
and live with family, there is a good chance you feel their emotional
blocks such as fear, anger, resentment and/or guilt. If you don’t know what an empath is, proceed to this post to learn more from the video. These deep emotions hidden under layers of denial, guilt and sometimes even addiction are a heavy burden for anyone with an autoimmune condition to bear.
|Empaths notoriously take on the emotions of others. Alone time is crucial.|
An empath might feel things emotionally and might even experience hives or
eczema when spending too much time at home. Empaths also have a tendency of ‘numbing out’ through distraction, whether that’s through social media, Netflix or anything that will distract the empath from the emotion that they cannot or are afraid to currently express.
If you’ve already checked for cross-contamination within your foods and checked whether your heating or air conditioning filters were recently changed yet still cannot find the culprit, here are a few things which help me.
1. Get Off Social Media and Turn Off Your Phone
Stop reading all the comments below articles and YouTube videos! I used to think it was my imagination, but after careful observation, I realized I react to energy, not just foods and environment. I’ll know because I’ll feel a slight reaction coming on and raised goosebumps appear on my arms…the same ones prior to hives or eczema reactions. I realized reading posts is basically like allowing that person to vent to you face to face. Multiply this by the amount of people who posted within the specific time frame you’re reading and you get a perspective of how many people are either draining or lifting your energy. It usually will have nothing to do with the post. What is actually happening is that your emotional response to their words causes a ‘connection’ to their energy field.
- panic or fear that you’re not good enough
- sadness that nothing goes right in your life
- sudden depression or mood change
- cold breeze or cold spots on arms or legs
- sudden insecurity or jealousy, even though you know you’re not feeling that towards them
- anger and impatience* (this one is common because you’re trying to distract yourself by keeping ‘busy’ when ultimately, you are simply distracting yourself from others’ overwhelming emotions)
2. Practice Channel Scrubbing During Your Shower
environmental allergens which could be in your hair or on clothing. If vibrational frequency is the tool, then water is the concentrated form of the canvas. Anything that contains molecules is the canvas. And we are the artists of our destinies. So basically, by taking a simple shower, you are washing your energy field with a ‘blank slate’ for the day or few hours or whatever amount of time it may be until you cleanse your energy again. The molecules in the water penetrate the pores of the largest organ on your body…your skin.
What I did not know then was that I was probably releasing blockages in the meridians, because channel scrubbing actually stimulates and unblocks meridians just like acupuncture!
I experimented with my own basic body scrub recipes and came up with this:
Coarse Brown Sugar Scrub Recipe
1/2 cup USDA Organic Olive Oil
1/4 USDA Organic Coconut Oil or any other USDA Organic Oil you can use
1/2 cup USDA Organic Dark Brown Sugar
1/4 cup finely ground sea salt
1/4 cup Course Sea Salt
4 Tbs USDA Organic Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract or regular vanilla extract
Directions: In large mixing bowl, mix everything together. Scoop into a large, shatter-proof container for your shower. Warning: I highly recommend adding a slip-proof shower mat since the oils make the tub very slippery but make your skin so soft.
If you have open cuts at the moment and cannot use a scrub, opt for the Gua Sha buffalo horn massage stones instead so that you don’t rip open more skin. Also, be careful with any lotions, deodorants or creams you use after scrubbing. Scrubbing creates tiny cuts in the skin, so anything you put on after will go straight into the bloodstream. This is actually rumored to be the reason why women develop breast tumors; the parabens from deodorants enter cuts after shaving armpits and go straight to the closest fatty tissue, the breast.
3. Listen to the Solfeggio Frequencies
What are the solfeggio frequencies?
|High frequency sound heals.|
These sound frequencies are simply
the same tones you hear in the solfeggio scale in the musical, The Sound
of Music. Who knew that sound healing could be so powerful? I realized
months ago, that listening to these frequencies with headphones helps
calm my reactions and even prevents them from happening. I
recently had the honor of meeting two separate people who got rid of
cancer. How? Organic juicing and these solfeggio frequencies.
The reason these healings are taking place is most likely due to the pulse or higher frequency vibration generated by the sound. Numerous medical treatments use hz. Low level laser therapy ranges from 2.5hz to 5,000hz but for this particular study I found with LLLT to treat wounds, they used 700hz, although there are also references to numerous other studies involving other various frequencies.
Ultrasound uses frequency, too. Just a few months ago, researchers discovered that ultrasound set at 1mz removes Alzheimer’s plaques. In the article, they conclude that plaque disappears because blood flow improves, which goes along with the Chinese medicinal theory of chi that I spoke about in the first paragraph! High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) has been proven to eliminate tumors and treat certain cancers.
I find it interesting that Western science still doesn’t tie together these treatments and acknowledge the chakra system. Maybe one day ten years from now, they will.
If you want to try the solfeggio frequencies for yourself, the video I most recommend is below. Use headphones and keep the sound at a comfortable level that you can feel resonating in your head or body (mid-level). There is nothing here but sound. Don’t let the symbols and numbers scare you. I will explain them in a later post, because that’s a whole other connected topic in itself. I noticed the greatest body sensations at the first two tone changes, especially when 174hz turned into 285hz. It turns out that 285hz is the tone that heals skin and wounds! One of the side effects of listening to solfeggio is feeling like you are underwater when you take the headphones off at the end. Since the tones are raising your vibration, you might feel some strange (but pleasing) sensations. You might feel emotions that need to be released, so keep tissues nearby. You will also feel like you are underwater at the end when you take off the headphones. Do not be alarmed; this goes away after a couple of minutes. If you cannot make it through the entire thing in the first sitting, at least try to make it to the end of 528hz which helps to heal and balance the heart chakra. Do not skip straight to this. It is important to start at the lower ones first to help balance lower chakras.
4. Go Somewhere
I’m not talking about a bar. No substances allowed. You need to love you.
|Make the most of autumn. Breathe that crisp air. Practice mindfulness. Discover yourself again.|
Your frazzled self is probably taking on emotions and snapping at everyone, so do them (and yourself) a favor and leave for a few hours. Of course, bring all your allergy medications, a snack or two and lots of water. I bring a gallon of distilled water with me wherever I go (distillation removes heavy metals in water). Go somewhere that you can relax, let your mind wander and let go. If you have classical or meditation music around, even better. No radio. Most music on the radio will simply bring your vibration back to the same frequencies you left on social media. I highly recommend music by Kevin Kern, classical music or Christian music (if that goes with your belief systems).
It is a good idea to first raise your vibration using the techniques
above so that you are in a higher energetic state and will naturally
gravitate towards the place with higher energy people and vice versa.
Here are some examples:
- nature preserve
- Barnes and Nobles
- Whole Foods
- local coffee shop
believe in God/Yahweh/Higher Power/Whatever You Believe In, pray. Go into whatever emotion you’re feeling and cry it out for as long as it takes. Nobody needs to hear you and there is no one judging you (unless it’s yourself!). Let go of whatever you’ve been holding in.
|Writing to your childhood self is one of the most healing things you can do.|
5. Write to Your Four-Year-Old Self
it out. Go into whatever emotions you’re feeling and have compassion for yourself as if you’re listening to a close friend. Then without judging yourself, give yourself advice. Another helpful trick is to write to the two-year-old you as if you are consoling him or her. Go grab a photo album, pull out a picture and sit with him or her. You wouldn’t mentally abuse, berate or emotionally slam an innocent child, would you?
|Look into the eyes of the child you once knew. She’s still there.|
Listen to her tears. Be honest with her. Tell her that you love her. Tell her she is beautiful. Tell her that she can do anything she ever wanted to. Tell her you believe her. Tell her you are sorry. Tell her it was never her fault. Tell her that the only opinion that will ever matter about herself is her own.
You might find emotions pouring out that you didn’t know were there. You might get angry and that’s ok. The point is that from now on, you are no longer shutting out your emotions. You are becoming aware of them so that you can let go of the ones that do not serve you and transmute them to a more positive emotion which in turn helps keep your energy body vibrating at a higher frequency. This isn’t going to heal you overnight, but it will help you to let go of the emotions you are taking on from those close to you. It will help you gain some clarity outside of the chaotic heart and minds of those you love.
I like to write notes into a Notes app on my phone. Many times, ideas or topics pop into my head seemingly out of nowhere. This might happen to you, too. The thought begins as a sentence and then once I start typing I cannot stop. This is not some strange manifestation only known to a select few; it is the inspiration all of the famous artists, philosophers, writers and creatives throughout history…and it is available to everyone. People think that you have to see beauty on the outside. People look for a muse to fall in love with. That you have to ‘chase unicorns’ and travel to exotic and distant locales to experience this inspiration. This is simply not the case. Beauty is experienced through truth, joy and love. Inspiration hits when we feel truth.
|The more honest you are with yourself, the closer you get to miracles.|
You can feel truth every single day if you’re brave enough to. Which brings us to my last recommendation to strengthen your energetic boundaries.
6. Learn About Addiction and Codependency
I’ve noticed that people who grow up with severe food allergies have very different core belief systems than most due to the trauma, over-protectiveness and other serious emotions like guilt that take place within the family dynamic. Many are even born into a lineage of chaotic family situations.
I have a theory that overwhelming, chronic emotions and chakra imbalances transmit through our DNA. I read a study recently that found that descendants of holocaust survivors have altered stress hormones! To me, this is huge.
It proves my theory right. If allergies and autoimmune conditions are caused by chakra imbalances, could this be why some are born with food allergies or autoimmune conditions and others aren’t?
It’s definitely something to consider. There are many various books about codependency and the many emotions we stifle with chronic disease. Many parents of children with food allergies also struggle with codependency due to guilt and self-blame.
Codependency and addictions go hand in hand for many people. Addictions do not have to be in the form of substances. As I outlined in this post, they can take many other various forms, including shopping addiction, gambling addiction, codependency addiction, food addiction, love addiction, sex addiction, compulsive hoarding and many others. One can even be addicted to distractions, in order to avoid something that would bring him or her success. It is my own personal opinion that the majority of the population is addicted to something.
There are also Twelve-Step anonymous programs which deal with almost anything one can be addicted to. I believe that at the root of all addictions is the concept of codependency.
Help for any addiction begins with awareness.
We cannot keep blaming others for our problems. We also are not meant to hate ourselves. Self-love and gratitude for what we do have are the most empowering and healing forces in the entire Universe. Self-love and gratitude bring courage and compassion where powerlessness ceases to exist. This increased vibration has a ripple effect just like a stone thrown into a pond. It is by healing ourselves that we ultimately heal the world.
