Living a 'harmonic' life means a balanced flow between mind, body and spirit. In essence, what I have been learning as I go along is, that in order to live a 'harmonic' life - one needs to have their own 'house', so to speak, in order. By that I mean the first thing would be to view your body as a temple - and with that in mind, you will nurture it by keeping it clean, not just on the outside but inside as well. I keep thinking of the expression that I heard as a child, "cleanliness is next to Godliness". I also believe that fasting is part of that way of thinking. There actually are certain holy or divine 'mantras' that are not to be uttered unless a person has fasted for three days prior to using them.
Fasting / Cleansing
Fasting cleanses the body and gives your entire system a chance to rest, then replenish, renew and revitalize itself. A great many of the celebrities apparently have known this for some time as they have been doing it for years. As an example of this, they will drink only fluids, such as fruit or vegetable juices for one, two or maybe even three days before starting on a diet of solids again. That is part and parcel of why they seem to have the secret to always appearing in a glowing, vibrant state of health.
Acidic / Alkaline
Did you know that, according to many health gurus, eating too much protein puts you more quickly on the road to aging? As well, when you over-indulge with proteins, the body becomes acidic - and, when this happens, the body attempts to adjust this acidic state by taking calcium from our bones to try and regain an 'alkaline' state. That is why eating too much protein is definitely not good for the body. As we've heard from when we were young - everything in moderation. I think that is the key to health. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. Did you know studies show that vegetarians have the highest levels of DHEA? This natural steroidol hormone, produced in the adrenal gland, has been shown to have anti-aging, anti-obesity and anti-cancer influences. This 'buffer-type' hormone is known to decline with age, reaching a decline of 90% by the age of 90 (www.ceri.com/dhea).
And, speaking of food, in my (coming) ebook I give you a list of most of the 'acidic' food types (protein) and also a list of most of the 'alkaline' food types, so that you can refer to the chart as often as you'd like. As Hippocrates said, "let food be thy medicine...and medicine be thy food."
Vibration / Frequencies
Music and vibration play a big part in paving the way towards living a more 'harmonic' life. We are made up of electrical energy fields. Our nervous system, therefore, responds to vibration (stimuli). That is why there are so many audio CD soundtracks now dealing with crystal bowl sounds, as well as other musical instruments that strike a certain vibration within the human nervous system. Another example would be 'tuning forks' which are used for this purpose. Relative to our electrical energy fields, flower essences and essential oils work on these electrical systems of the body as well. Even the words we utter - can have a profound effect on us and our environment, as they, too, give off a vibration (there are certain holy words in which it is said cannot be uttered unless you have fasted for three days!) With the right sounds and vibratory tones, healing can take place.
There are some wonderful CD's selling on the market right now that have a certain vibrational sound to them that stimulates the different chakras of the body. These 'harmonics' put one in an altered state of consciousness in eight minutes. You can purchase any one of the brainwave sounds according to the topic that you are most interested in. They somehow work by changing the frequency your are currently vibrating on. There are even harmonic soundtracks to foster 'psychic' awareness, as well as 'clairvoyance' and 'speed learn' just to mention a few others. I may be exploring the 'psychic' brainwave harmonic as my next experience.
'A Pocket Guide to a Harmonic Life'
There is much, much more on this topic that I would love to share with you. I will be going into greater detail in my (coming) ebook that will be entitled, "A Pocket Guide to Living a 'Harmonic' Life". Within this book I will give you a plethora of information, i.e., breakthroughs in scientific research, along with names of websites where you can find ground-breaking products for your health, holistic and naturopathic doctors and their wonderful, enlightening websites, as well as other websites chock-full of helpful information which, I hope, will have as much of an impact on you as they have had on me. The information I have gleaned from researching new age information has been a very positive and influencing experience in my life.
I have learned so much with the research I have been doing. It has truly been a blessing for me. There are health problems I have had that I am currently working on to get myself back on track through several different methods, such as the aforementioned brainwave harmonics, as well as bio-identical hormones (womentowomen.com), and, as well, exploring a wealth of various other tidbits of information I've discovered researching a myriad of websites, which are mentioned in my (coming) ebook. There are products 'out there' that I never knew existed - items that I had no idea were available, and could be of such value to a person who is seeking alternative methods in which to help themselves become whole again. I had to put the compiling of my ebook on hold for a while but I hope to have it ready (and available on our site) soon.
'Healing, Miracle' (Living) Water
Before I forget, also coming in my ebook I touch on the subject of healing water - which truly does exist, and I give more detailed information on how you can have it. It is water made up of smaller clusters of molecules (forming a geometric pattern). Because of the smaller sized molecules, they are able to penetrate our cells and bring in nutrients that ordinary water, such as tap, spring and distilled water, is not able to do. This is the secret to this transformation into 'Living Water', making it into a healing water that will do miraculous things for your entire system. As a prime example, the water at Lourdes also has the same basic chemistry, which is why this famous site has been known as one of only a handful of naturally-occurring healing waters on the face of the earth.
As I said, this 'living' water is only naturally-occurring in a handful of places in the entire world; but, there is also another way to obtain it. I go into the various avenues in my ebook. The molecular structure of 'living water' was first written about by a Nobel-prize winning research scientist decades ago. Our bodies need water that is most like the water that we are comprised of - a composition which encompasses 80% of our body - water that has minerals; that is to say, much like sea water (http://thank-water.net/english). This site shows pictures of water before, and, after saying a prayer of thanks -- amazing!
I believe there are mirculous substances still waiting to be discovered - and we must be willing to keep an open mind if we are to truly unlock these mysteries. I read where God made a statement along the lines of '....if only you knew what I put in water....". I believe he meant the sea water. Just recently I stumbled onto a site that features something called "sea snow, sea powder"; articles such as this truly fascinate me and make me want to learn more and try them out for myself. Here is that link:
This article just briefly touches on so much healthful information that will be coming out in my ebook, and I am so grateful I have been afforded the opportunity to research and am still now compiling it. I have detailed the best of it in my 'harmonic' ebook that I am trying to complete for you to offer on 'bellaonline'. Please visit our informative and interesting ebooks we are featuring on our site. Hopefully, I will be able to have mine listed on the site soon!! You won't be disappointed!
Have a wonderful week -- be well!
