Bio-Energy for Natural Healing

EinsteinBio-Energy for Natural Healing is a non-physical energy that can also be called chi, life-force, orgone energy or prana. (In Depth Article Here)  There are five principal sources of bio-energy.

  1. The natural recharging of the body after a deep sleep;
  2. ingesting of raw foods, juices and charged water;
  3. touching prana-rich fresh rain or morning dew or breathing prana-rich air;
  4. through guided imagery and meditation;
  5. and through accumulation energy through the chakra system, most importantly through the crown chakra. (Walter Last)

“In addition to food and air, we need a balanced intake of electromagnetic energies. These include sunlight, colors, the Earth’s magnetic field and the electric field between the ionosphere and the ground.” (Walter Last)

Reports of bio-energy first surfaced in the 1940’s by Dr. Wilhelm Reich. From its inception bio-energy was often misunderstood, rejected by the FDA and misconstrued by the public. What Reich was suggesting was a powerful energy accumulator that could draw the negative energies from within the body (working through the chakras); healing patients from illness, improving mood and sleep and in some cases metastasized melanomas.

The best part about Bio-energy – we’re surrounded by it!

Sunlight gives off both Bio-Energy for Natural Healing and electromagnetic energies. In the grass in fields and streams, yoga and fresh raw foods.

In 1940 Dr. Reich found a way to harness these powers.  Healing his patients and changing the we looked at medical treatment.

But how did this come about?

While researching the energies emitted from the skin during human pleasure (the big O) vs. sadness, Dr. Wilhelm Reich (1897 – 1957) met an energy that did not obey the laws of electricity or magnetism.  An energy that could charge organic materials – he named them “orgone” energies.  Reich found that this orgone is held within organic (non-metallic) materials such as cotton, plastic or wool. Whereas metallic materials reflected this energy.

Later Version of the Orgone Energy Accumulator

With these findings Reich began layering organic and metallic materials. In 1940 he created The Orgone Energy Accumulator a box in which he layered these materials and using a “specially designed lens” he was able to see the radiation present within the box.

“The accumulator’s organic layers attracted the atmospheric energy which was directed inward by the metal layers. Any energy reflected outward by the metal layers was immediately re-absorbed by the organic material, attracted back to the metal, and directed toward the inside of the box. The result was a higher concentration of orgone energy inside the box. The more layers, the stronger the concentration.” (psychorgone.com)

Reich noticed a blue energy, visible to the naked eye; and proposed that this energy is responsible for our emotions, our sexuality, gravity, weather patterns and even the dawn of our galaxies (Natural News, 2012). This orgone energy was unlike entropy (or deterioration of matter) and instead worked to organize and concentrate matter.

Reich believed that traumatic experiences blocked the natural electrical flow of life energy in the body; this produced body armoring and in turn led to physical and emotional disease. Reich developed the orgone accumulator to help his patients overcome conditions of reduced health caused by depletion or blockages of the orgone energy within the body.” (Natural News, 2012)

In conclusion, the layers of organic and inorganic materials make it possible to open ones energy field allowing them to heal naturally. In essence transforming negative energies into positive.

To note, orgone energy has also be reported in a red-yellow color.  And it can also be held within crystals, gems, plants and water. Notice the Kirlian Photograph below, a piece the leaf cut off but it appears whole within the photo. A mesmerizing illustration of bio-energy (or orgone).

Nonetheless, in 1954 the FDA filed a Complaint for Injunction claiming that orgone did not exist.

Plant Aura (Kirlian, 1973)

Plant Aura (Kirlian Photograph, 1973)

And in 1956 all orgone accumulators and associated materials were ordered to be dismantled or destroyed. Along with over 6 tons of books written by Dr. Reich.

That following year Reich was sentenced to two years in prison.

This is Reich’s request for appeal written to Judge John Clifford before sentencing:

“…over a period of 30 years could not convince this administration, or will not be able to convince any other administration of the true nature of the discovery of the Life Energy, no litigation in any court anywhere will ever help to do so. I, therefore, submit, in the name of truth and justice that I shall not appear in court as the ‘defendant’ against a plaintiff who by his mere complaint already has shown his ignorance in matters of natural science.”

He died in prison two years later at the age of 59.

A reflection from his conversations with Freud:

“You have to revamp your whole way of thinking,” Reich said, “so that you don’t think from the standpoint of the state and the culture, but from the standpoint of what people need and what they suffer from. Then you arrange your social institutions accordingly.”

For now, Here are 5 ways to experience Bio-Energy for Natural Healing (or orgone) right at home.

  1. Step outside on a sunny day for 20min without sunglasses. (This is not prolonged exposure however you may wish to cover up.) Sunset is also a powerful time to experience the sun’s Bio-Energy for Natural Healing.
  2. After a rain or in the morning dew step through the soil or grass with bare feet. (My FAVORITE!)
  3. You can also create your own orgonite with resin, crystals and metals.
  4. Or you can wear it! I create handmade Bio-Energy Keepsake Necklaces. And for the month of September I will be creating these keepsakes for purchase.

    I will use the earnings to further my research into sustainable supply chain processes by traveling oversees (leaving the US in October) to gain insight from the families that are most as risk from the damaging effects of faulty practices. While doing some much-needed spiritual work. If you’d like one for yourself or a loved one please click here. Each piece is custom-made based on your personal style – be sure to place your interests in the notes section (i.e. I want an Oct. birthstone, or I love nature or I’m a new mother…etc).

  5. Create your own energy accumulator! Find out how with Natural News.

I’m excited to hear your thoughts!

Basic Hip Slide

FullSizeRender(7)FullSizeRender(5)Today we’re going to go over the basic hip slide.

Remember to start in dance posture:

  • Tailbone tucked under
  • Core tight
  • Feet 1-2 inches apart
  • Knees bent

This will make sure that you remain stable throughout your movements, it will also allow you to get the most of out of your movements.

Basic Hip Slide: Pull your hip in towards the center of your body; moving your hip from side to side pulling one at a time as far under your chin as possible. Be sure to keep your hips parallel to the floor. Imagine there is a string tied around your hips pulling them in towards the center of your body.

Do not focus on the hip that’s moving outwards, instead focus your attention on the hip moving in and under your chin.

Once you feel comfortable with this move you can try it while walking and shifting your weight from side to side as you step.

I’ve included a video tutorial below.

Life Within

DSC00859

When you hear the words, life within what comes to mind?

 

If you’re like me, you visualize a ball: either held delicately in your hands; or surrounding you, cradling your body within its orb. Life within comfort; life within love; or life within your spiritual path.

Though we feel supported from time to time, these feelings may lack permanence.

 

So how do we create a feeling of security and acceptance in a world seemingly riddled with opportunities for defeat?

 

For me, there are three practices that I’ve adopted to effectively accept my emotions and live within the moment.  Whether this leads to a successful, worry free day or into a swirling spiral of emotions is unimportant.  What is important is how we feel after this rush or light takes hold of us and we progress.

 

I’ll take you through my steps:

  1. Remember why you are feeling, and embrace those emotions wholeheartedly. We are meant to feel; to love and be loved. We are programmed to react to the environment for our survival. Psychotherapist Joyce Marter, LCPC points out that often we’re encouraged to mask or socialize our fears to “fit in” or avoid causing any rifts. DO NOT let this happen to you. Emotions are a call to action. of PshychCentral.com reminds us that emotions have purpose in her article 3 Facts about Feelings in which she reminds us that “feelings have function”, that moments of doubt, fear or sadness offer you an opportunity to reflect and “…to follow your inner wisdom.”  Its important to “process your feelings” to avoid harming ourselves. Lack of emotional release can to create hypertension, headaches and gastrointestinal issues. She goes on to mention that, “You don’t have to act on your feelings”. Don’t punish yourself for feeling, instead understand that you’re experiencing some emotions and from there, decide to react accordingly. Which brings me to step two on my list.
  2. Engage your mind in delivering those emotions efficiently.  Many times I’m wrought up with guilt and I stammer to find loving words that effectively communicate my sentiment. It’s not that I yearn to create rifts, rather, I yearn for harmony but I seem to excel in miscommunication. *insert empathetic laughter here* They say not to react on your first impulse, but to wait for the second – this is what I’ve been practicing.  Rather than say what’s on your mind in the instant; reflect, absorb, find peace and then react.
  3. Find an outlet for your feelings.  Whether you enjoy journaling, running, crafting or meditating; find an outlet that speaks to you.  Find a comfortable space for your emotions and go there daily.  I start my mornings with a JBM: Journal, Breakfast, Meditation. This practice often leaves me feeling light and airy and ready for the day.  I tried meditating before breakfast but I was often interrupted by a grumbling tummy.

 

Remember that it is not our responsibility to change the world, but that we may change our place within it. We can grow, transform and uplift this great planet.

 

We can release our belongings and find precious gifts within ourselves.

 

We can love and be loved without contempt.

 

Our strength is not measured solely by our accomplishments but by our ever-growing list of compassionate undertakings.

 

We are made to evolve.

We are programmed to feel and to allow those feelings to guide our actions.

 In our dreams we’re often flying; soaring high above our fears, our lives and our transient bodies.

 

What can we learn from these dreams: from our abilities to rise above?

 

Why imagine life without emotion?

 

Why not imagine life within: within our dreams: living amidst happiness and soothing any discomfort as we soar.

 Imagine life within us, our purest most prosperous us-es.

 

A perfectly messy collection of extraordinary energies.

 Embracing the good and choosing to surround ourselves with auras that serve us.

 

Seeking happiness.

Enjoying the search and traveling with an open heart.

 

Every moment we that devote to understanding is a moment given to bettering ourselves.

Rather than focus on the negativity that creeps up we can choose to shed light on these feelings as opportunities for change.

 DSC00879

When we place pressure upon ourselves and upon those around us, we may find that we lose sight of the happiness and fluidity that naturally beckons us. Every beast: every beautiful, passionate human being and all of our unspoken creatures are meant to thrive. There is no proper place for hatred. There are no ethical reasons for suffering.  As the world continues to change and we try our hardest to find our place, remember that it may not be where you stand now.

You may not have found your tranquility yet, but I assure you it exists.

 

Practice self-love and I have no doubt that you will find your peace.

 

Never give up on your own happiness.

 

Never lose sight of the opportunity to grow and embrace love and never ever forget that you too deserve love.

 

Every road presents its own challenges and rewards, all placed accordingly so that we may learn from them and enjoy them as we wander through this life within us.

Soothing Spring Oatmeal Bath

Spring is here!

 Warm weather is around the corner, sunshine is beckoning from your windows and your skin is crying, “let me out!!”

If you’re like me, your skin goes through stages.

There’s the usual… We’re histamines, we react to anything so be gentle.  Find anything comfortable to wear that doesn’t expose or irritate our healing skin.

Then there’s the… Oh my gracious! We love the ocean, we love the salt, the sand and the sunshine; the more you give us the happier we are. Thank you for letting us out!

And then there’s what I like to call the “crouton stage” in which your skin feels as though its…well, a crouton. Your skin is sore, inflamed and tight.

For years now we’ve noticed these stages and have come to almost accept them.  I say almost because we’re always searching for answers to our epidermal woes.  Which is why we continually seek natural healing methods, recipes and soaks and avoid harmful fillers and toxins in our foods.

 

This Soothing Spring Oatmeal Bath is a twist on a Colloidal Oatmeal Bath Soak DIY that I made a minor adjustment to, just to kick it up a smidgen.

Here’s an Outline of the Beneficial Ingredients:

  • Oatmeal – Removes excess bacteria from skin, exfoliates, contains gelatinous polysaccharides which form a protective barrier for your skin, and its beta-glucans penetrate deep into the skin moisturizing more than just the outer layer. Oatmeal also enhances healing and collagen deposition, evens skin tone, and relieves itching, while its saponins gently remove toxins from your body.  Lastly, oatmeal contains lubricating fats that protect your skin against harmful UV rays. (Article Here)
  • Chamomile – Is a natural anti-inflammatory flower that relaxes muscles and histamines. It’s anti-bacterial and anti-allergenic powers speed healing of wounds, burns and rashes.  When used as a bath soak it can reduce the pain of menstrual cramps and painful dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. (Article Here) When taken orally, its anti-inflammatory properties have also been shown to improve digestion and ease pain for those suffering from gastrointestinal issues such as ulcerative colitis.
  • Lavender Oil – Similar to oatmeal, lavender too is an antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic that boots the immune system. Thanks in part to its soothing nature, it reduces the stress that can trigger flare-ups and irritated skin.  It soothes minor burns, calms the mind and body and is great to use just before bed. (Article Here)

When combined these ingredients create a powerhouse of tranquilizing nutrients. OatmealBath
