Changing The Vibe

Some of the most powerful things that affect our feelings for the day are not the traffic or the people that push our buttons, but the visuals and sounds around us. Yes, the traffic and the  A - holes are what push our buttons, but a color or a sound can change the level of tension FAST.

Vibration, whether riding in a car, or flying on a plane tends to put babies to sleep. That's because vibration touches every cell in the body.

An article found on rainbowvibrations.com explains how sound therapy is used for stress because it not only soothes our physical body, but our emotional body as well Sound can be used to unlock blocked emotions.

The Deepak Chopra Center in California has found that the sound of Himalayan Singing Bowls and Gongs are a beneficial part of their cancer treatments. They claim that the sound of the bowls are chemically metabolized in the body as the endogenous opiod which works in pain reduction.

Some known benefits of sound therapy are:
  • Balancing both hemispheres of the brain
  • Increases vital energy flow
  • Cleanses negative energy
  • Stress reduction
I'm only mentioning a few benefits, but along with these few are the additional benefits of better sleep, relaxation, better digestion, lower blood pressure and all of the things that come with stress reduction.

Lately, we've been experimenting with our own stress by hanging a tiny chime in the kitchen. When something stressful happens and one of us is uptight, we hit the little bell with the intention of changing the vibe. It works!

The Coast Off Of China
As much as there are people using and dumping plastics into the ocean, there are activists working to clean it up. 

The photos, like the one to the left, are sickening. Advocates and scientists believe that they will be able to clean up the five major trash rafts floating in the ocean if their newly invented cranes work as researched.

We have no choice but to act in any way that we can to help with this cause. I believe that as humans we have a responsibility to keep our own environment healthy for ourselves and our families.

Keeping A Positive Outlook On Life

Another day and we're getting ready to start seeing flowers on my little seedlings. Watching my
flowers growing each day reminds me of the brighter side of life. Look at them! It's only been a few weeks. You still have time to plant some seeds to make the environment a better place. Turn the TV off. Mean people suck, but plants and animals will always be true!

What The Heck Is A Jade Roller?


It’s a Jade – Roller, of course. It is a lovely item with a smooth piece of Jade on each end
Jade Roller
traditionally is used in beauty treatments in parts of Asia.

I’ve been practicing and teaching face lift massage this summer and hand positioning and depth of stroking is always something to pay attention to.  A therapists hands can get crampy and tired when trying to work in the small areas while keeping the rest of your hand out of the way. If not working in small areas
 with your fingers, how else, you ask.

This is where the Jade Roller comes in. This type of treatment is called “crystal-infused” skin care which in addition to smoothly pushing blood through tissue, is also known to use the restorative properties of various stones. Rose quartz is another stone used in face rolling.

This type of facial treatment has been used by Chinese women for eons but has just recently garnered attention in the USA as an “Innovation in skin care.”

In January of this year Town and Country Magazine shared a how-to diagram with upward and outward motions to move excess fluid from the face. Harper’s Bazaar recently reported a brightening of the skin as a result of the roller boosting circulation and blood flow to the face.

I love the results that I see in my own skin. I can sit in my easy chair in the evening and while watching my favorite show  I can roll my face while looking fresher by the minute. I give a huge thumbs up to this product! You can buy one on Amazon or Ebay.
