Dreaming With Crystals

May 1st, 2006

Dreams are the most important part of living. By tapping into them one can explore the waking world, and actually work through issues before they have even come to light.

There are two factors one must consider in dream work: remembering one’s dreams and recording those dreams. I have had many clients tell me they could not remember their dreams, or that they do not dream. Everyone dreams, every night. How can one record what one cannot recall?

There is one method I believe works well. Before sleeping for the night, form your hand into a fist and hold it in the center of your chest. Close your eyes and say: “I will remember my dreams when I wake up.” Say this three times, once aloud and twice to yourself.

Once you begin recalling dreams, you can begin to record them. Purchase a journal, any kind will do. Some of my clients buy a notebook with an inspirational cover while others simply pick a small school notebook.

Personally, because I do heavy dream work each day, I have a notebook and a small tape recorder that I use during the night because handwriting can be tricky when you wake up from dreaming.

In dream recall everything is important. A general rule would be to make a point of recalling any of the following: colors, shapes, gender, water, weather, movement, and so on. These points reveal a great deal about the state of your life overall.

Dreaming with Crystals can enhance the dream state in many ways, depending on the type of crystal and how it is used. The results can be enlightening, enriching and therapeutic. Below are methods and the Crystals one might use.

*Stress Release And Insomnia - Amethyst is an excellent stone for relieving you of the Stress of the day. A relaxing crystal, it also helps with Insomnia and Headaches. Take a glove and place it over your left “receiving” hand before retiring to bed. Slip a small Amethyst crystal into the glove You will be able to get a good night’s rest, release Stress, and your dreams may become more uniform, thus allowing you to remember them more easily. Once you become more comfortable with dreaming with Amethyst, you may want to tape one to your third eye before sleeping and create some real magic!

*Love And Romance - Rose Quartz and Jade are good Crystals/stones for dreams where love is the issue at hand. Place either crystal (or both) under your Pillow. (I find it best to actually slip the stone into the pillowcase. If it gets lost during the night, don’t worry. It simply means you no longer need the benefits of those particular Crystals. The energies of these stones are soft and may bring forth dreams that are loving and filled with positive vibrations.

*Problem Solving - Clear Quartz is the best for issues one needs to work through while sleeping. Program a clear Quartz point with the issue on your mind, with the express request to solve your issue via your dreams (see my previous article on Crystal Awareness for how to program). You will find that when you awake you will be more focused, grounded, and clear with your issue.

*Money and Prosperity - Citrine is an excellent crystal for bringing about wealth in body, mind and spirit. Known as the merchant stone, it manages to attract abundance in ways that fortify balance, whether that balance is sought in the home, the bank account, the body, spirit, or the mind. Intent is important…as is your faith that God and the Universe will provide for your needs. Citrine is also helpful in cleansing the chakras (energy fields) of the body. You will find yourself awakening refreshed after using Citrine.

I strongly suggest that you dream with Crystals for a full week, recording your results and the Crystals you use, before moving on to the next crystal-dream Exercise you want to try. Consistency and intent are most important. Your intention, your faith and your desire for accomplishment will bring about positive results.

There are as many methods as there are Crystals. There is no right or wrong to doing this. Tape a crystal to your wrist or third eye; wear a glove with a crystal inside, slip it under your Pillow, or even place some Crystals under your mattress, forming a grid around your bed.

Experimentation is the key. Just make sure to keep an accurate record of the crystal/gemstone you use, how you are using it, and the length of time within which you used it.

Tissue Salts - Can They Help Panic Attacks?

May 1st, 2006

Use Triple Complex Nerve Tonic to:

  • Ensure systemic balance of biochemic tissue salts in the body
  • Optimize health at the cellular level
  • Relieve symptoms of disease
  • Restore health and Vitality
  • Safely treat a wide range of symptoms without side effects
  • Optimize the therapeutic effects of other remedies by improving systemic functioning and Metabolism

What are tissue salts?

Tissue Salts, also called cell salts or biochemic salts, are composed of minerals which occur naturally in our bodies and all Organic matter on earth, such as plants, rocks and soil.

Dr Scheussler, a prominent 19th Century German doctor, conducted research which demonstrated that, when reduced to ashes, each human cell contains 12 minerals or biochemic tissue salts and that these minerals should be present in all living cells in perfect balance to ensure good health.

Imbalance, or a deficiency of any of the tissue salts, causes disease and the body begins to develop symptoms associated with the tissue salts that are lacking.

Restoring the correct balance of tissue salts in the body will therefore remove the symptoms and restore health and Vitality.

This system of medicine is called Biochemistry and is still practiced today by homeopaths and naturopaths all over the world.

Are tissue salts supplements or medicine?

A little of both in a way! Tissue salts can be described as ‘Nutroceuticals’ - nutritional substances which are used to maintain optimal health and functioning and also to restore balance and relieve symptoms of disease.

Tissue Salts can therefore be taken regularly to prevent illness and improve functioning (just like Vitamins), but can also be used to treat symptoms when this is necessary (as one would do with medicines).

The only difference is that they are taken more frequently to treat symptoms and less frequently as a preventative and a health aid.

As an example, certain tissue salts can be taken three times a day to promote digestive health. However, if symptoms like Indigestion, gas, Nausea or Bloating occur, the frequency can be increased too.

If tissue salts are also nutritional, can I get them from a healthy diet?

Yes, in theory you can - and that is how it is supposed to be! Since the 12 different tissue salts are present in all Organic matter, our bodies obtain tissue salts from the food that we eat and the water that we drink.

A healthy diet should be able to provide all the tissue salts that our bodies need. Unfortunately, due to modern farming methods, the food that is available to us is often deficient in the minerals and Vitamins that are essential for health - even if we follow a healthy diet.

Added to this is the fact that many people rely on fast food or pre-packed processed meals due to time constraints and a stressful lifestyle.

Over time, this can lead to symptoms of poor health or even disease. This means that the majority of people in Western countries are deficient in essential Vitamins and other nutritional substances, and need to take supplements on a daily basis.

Are tissue salts safe?

Even some Vitamins taken in excess can do harm! Not so with Tissue Salts.

Due to a unique and specialized manufacturing process, our tissue salts are present in a highly absorbable form and only minute amounts are therefore present in each tablet.

This means that tissue salts are extremely safe and free of side effects.

It is impossible to overdose with tissue salts and they may be safely be taken by people of all ages, as well as infants and women who are Pregnant or nursing.

What is Triple Complex Nerve Tonic?

Triple Complex Nerve Tonic contains Ferrum Phosphoricum, Kalium Phosphate and Magnesium Phosphate to protect against and treat Anxiety and Panic Attacks. Use daily to soothe Anxiety levels and more frequently at the first signs of an Anxiety attack.

Triple Complex Nerve Tonic can be effectively used along with our all herbal MindSoothe Capsules, MindSoothe Jr. Capsules and PureCalm Drops.

How has Triple Complex Nerve Tonic helped others?

“I want to recommend your Triple Complex Nerve Tonic to all who suffer from Anxiety and Panic Attacks. Since taking them I have noticed a decrease in my Anxiety levels and far fewer Panic Attacks. If I do feel that I am about to have an attack or my Anxiety goes up, I suck two tablets which really helps me to feel better” Sabrina.

“Your Nerve Tonic salts are fantastic. I have always been an Anxious person, but became much worse when I fell Pregnant. Of course I wanted to avoid taking medication that could harm my baby and which I don’t like taking in any case. Your Tissue Salts help me to feel calm and I am not worrying about everything. I am going to cary on taking them after my baby is born as I have never felt this calm before” Trish L.

How do I take Triple Complex Nerve Tonic?

Tissue salts are easy to take! For everyday use, simply place the tiny tablets under your tongue and allow to dissolve. They are pleasant tasting and even children love to take them! For babies and smaller children, the tablets can be crushed and sprinkled on the tongue or mixed in a little warm water.

As a preventative or part of a maintenance program - dissolve 2 - 4 tablets under the tongue in a clean mouth three times a day.

For symptomatic treatment - dissolve 2 - 4 tablets under the tongue up to six times daily.

How long till I see results?

People can differ widely in their response times to Tissue Salts depending on individual makeup, severity of symptoms, lifestyle, diet, etc.

Some may experience symptomatic relief within days, while others can take up to 6 weeks before an effect is felt.

Often, as in the case of all good tonics, a gradual improvement is felt over time.

How long does a bottle last?

Each Native Remedies Triple Complex Nerve Tonic bottle contains 360 tablets.

If you are taking Triple Complex Tissue Salts as a preventative (2 - 4 tablets three times a day), one bottle will last approximately a month.

Nitric Oxide and Tuning Forks

May 1st, 2006

By John Beaulieu, ND, PhD

Landmark research is shedding new light on the effects of music and sound in relationship to healing and energy. In 2002, Dr. George Stefano and I made an exciting discovery: Specific vibrations transferred to cells using Tuning Forks causes the spiking of nitric oxide. This release of nitric oxide sets off a cascade physiological events that directly influences our health, well-being, state of mind, and consciousness.

Tuning Forks spike nitric oxide. Why is that important?

In 1998, Robert F Furchgott, Louis J Ingnarro, and Ferid Murad made a discovery which changed medicine. They discovered that our cells produce and release nitric oxide. Their discovery was so important that they won the Nobel Prize in Medicine and so significant that the U.S. government and the pharmaceutical medical complex has spent over two hundred million dollars investigating this gas.

Nitric oxide is a molecule created by a nitrogen atom bound to an oxygen atom. It is made in our cells and released into the surrounding tissues as a gas. The release of nitric oxide by our cells is termed puffing by scientists to describe the rising and falling of this gas. The puffing cycle is like a wave which takes three minutes to rise and three minutes to fall.

The rising phase of the wave is the release of nitric oxide which sends a signal to our cells to Relax. During the falling phase of the wave nitric oxide dissipates and our cells become more active. The calm between the rising and falling we call still point and we will talk more about its importance in a subsequent article.

When are cells are puffing nitric oxide in natural rhythmic Cycles, we experience these benefits:

  • Enhances cell Vitality, vascular flow and heart healing
  • Destroys bacteria and virus at a micro level which naturally enhances our Immune System and increases our ability to prevent and fight infections
  • Increases resistance to Stress and greater levels of energy and Stamina
  • Sharpens mental clarity and diminishes states of Depression due to the balancing of the autonomic Nervous system
  • Improves digestion and natural cleansing

Our research demonstrates that when BioSonic Tuning Forks are placed on bone or connective tissue they resonate throughout our whole body in wave like patterns causing the cells to spike nitric oxide. Research further suggests that listening to Tuning Forks as well as certain music can spike nitric oxide. The implications of this research in both the medical and energy paradigms are profound.

The puffing of nitric oxide in our cells is a universal source of health and well-being. New research in the field of sound and biochemistry now shows that Tuning Forks spike nitric oxide causing our cells to rhythmically puff again. This research opens the doorway for the possibility of a whole new scientific paradigm of music and Sound Healing for the future.

The above reference BioSonics/Cell Dynamics research used an Otto 128 cps Tuning Fork which resonates with a proportion called the Golden Mean. Body Tuners creates a similar pulsation.

The Art of Breathing - Your First Key to Unlimited Energy

May 1st, 2006

Yes, Breathing is an art, and it is a very scientific art. The act of Breathing is much more than inhaling and exhaling air. It triggers off a whole chain of physio-biological reactions, spanning each of the billions of cells that make up our bodies. Extra oxygen in the blood stream stimulates the excretory system, thereby clearing the body of harmful toxins. Extra oxygen in the brain provides additional energy and Vitality. Deep meditative Breathing is a kind of reminder to the body that all is fine and in control.

Breathing has always been a part of our wellness arsenal, but somehow as one grows older, Breathing becomes less and less scientific. It becomes shallow, and we begin to breathe in the chest, rather than the stomach.

So, what is the correct way of Breathing?

Have you ever seen a baby breathe? In and out, deep and even, slow, easy and calm. If you look closely, you will see that it is not the chest that is rising and falling, rather it is the stomach. To put it more precisely, it is the diaphragm, the muscle between the chest and the abdominal cavity, which moves.

Now, compare this with your own style of Breathing. Chances are that you will find that it differs. If you are like most people, your upper chest expands as you inhale and contracts as you exhale. Over the years, you have learned to hold your stomach in.

The trouble is that this has become something normal in most people’s lives. Over the years, life in a crowded city, with chronic pollution problems and a lack of fresh air can result in the gradual shift from abdominal Breathing (also called Belly Breathing) to chest Breathing.

This shift in Breathing pattern, however, is not a natural feature of growing older. Many experts are of the opinion that this is simply a bad habit. They also believe that by breaking the habit, and returning to a style of Breathing like that of an infant, we can help rid ourselves of chronic complaints Headaches and fatigue. Moreover, by adopting a proper Breathing technique, we may be able to ward off Stress, lower our blood pressure, and strengthen our hearts and much more.

“The way we breathe can have a profound effect on the way we feel,” says psychologist Dr. Phil Nuernberger, author of ‘Freedom From Stress.’ “Many Stress related ailments, whether physical, mental or emotional, may be caused by improper Breathing, and fortunately, they can be easily reversed by adopting scientific Breathing mechanisms.”

Apart from the health benefits, deep Breathing also results in a much better feeling of well-being. It encourages creativity, stimulates memory, and calms emotional extremities.

Practicing Belly Breathing

Find a comfortable place to sit down. Make sure you are wearing thin and comfortable clothing. Now, place your right arm on your stomach, and breathe in the following manner.

  1. Breathe in through the nose, counting two.

  2. Hold, counting up to four.

  3. Breathe out through the mouth, counting three.

As you breathe in, feel your stomach fill up with air and expand outwards, and as you breathe out, feel your stomach deflate.

Do this ten times, three times a day for the next one week and see how your health improves.

Happy Breathing for a Healthy LIFE.
