How do you bring balance into your life? The first question to ask is…
Are you awake?
I love this analogy. We all know what it’s like to HAVE to get up when we really need to sleep more. We stumble to the kitchen for that first cup of whatever gets you going and wait for it to kick in. With luck, it lasts all day.
I want to be that first cup of something that gets you going. But I am not talking about sleep. I’m talking about being AWAKE to what is working for and against you mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. My hope is to “wake you up” to these things so you can make informed decisions regarding things that are important to you and those you love.
In the next few weeks I want to “Wake you up” to energy and balance. I want to tell you about how being out of balance causes DIS-EASE. I want to show you how powerful our words can be, as well as our thoughts. Did you know our EMOTIONS have energy, as does our food and everything around us? When you wake up to this knowledge you will see that you have choices.
Knowledge is power. It’s all about DECISIONS.
“What’s the buzz?”
I want to start with balance. Not too much and not too little. In my world of Naturopathy it’s called HOMEOSTASIS. We all need balance in our lives and it isn’t hard to achieve. Staying balanced is more difficult because LIFE happens. So let’s talk about LIFE.
“Everything in life is vibration”.
Albert Einstein told us that. If you had a chemistry class you may remember that atoms are always moving. The speed of those atoms determines if things are solid, liquid or gas. This is the source of the vibration of all things. This is a known Universal Law – everything is vibrating at one speed or another. Your eyes and ears interpret vibratory frequency so you can see and hear. Even your taste buds interpret the vibration of what you are eating to allow you to taste.
Color and Sound Have Vibration
Colors have different frequencies and can affect us and our moods. Think about Seasonal Affect Disorder (SAD). Bright colors have a higher frequency than darker colors. The science behind SAD is lack of sunLIGHT. On cloudy, grey days we are sad because we lack the vibration of sunlight and colors!
Sounds have different frequencies. If you go in a music store and pluck the G string of a violin, all the other stringed instruments in the room will pick up that vibration and they will also resonate with the sound of G!
Naturopaths offer a therapy called Color and Sound therapy. Some say it’s the medicine of the future.
This therapy can actually raise the vibrational frequency of internal organs to bring them back to BALANCE or HOMEOSTASIS, if they are out of balance, or in a state of DIS-EASE.
They use color and sound! Do some research on this or let me know if you are interested in more on this by commenting below. I love to share!
I will end with food but there is so much more to this, which will be for another time. Here is one AWAKENING: food is alive and so it, too, vibrates. Our bodies need this vibrational energy to live and function well.
Food, right out of the ground in your yard, that has been nourished and not poisoned with chemicals is best. Next best is from local farmers who are AWAKE to how to grow nutritious food. From here on you have to be informed.
We kill our food, literally, by boiling, frying, microwaving, and cooking at too high temperatures! Eating manufactured canned food is eating dead food. These cooking methods not only stop the vibrational frequencies but they deplete the vitamins and minerals from the food. Raw, lightly steamed, sauteed or cooked on low heat will preserve more of the nutrients and vibrations.
A phenomenal book you may find helpful is by Barbara Kingsolver called Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. She and her family take on a challenge to grow their own food for a year. It’s a lovely narrative written from 3 perspectives; hers, her husband’s and her daughter’s.
Homeostasis can be enhanced or thrown off by something as simple as energy or vibrational frequency. Our senses are our way of interpreting that frequency.
Everything in our life is affected by vibrational frequency.
My next topic will deal with how vibrational frequencies affect our emotions and how dis-ease begins in our body. Stay tuned!
