Unconditional Forgiveness

Free ebook Intro Embodied SpiritThis morning I awoke at my usual time, sometime around 6:30 a.m., and chose to laze around in a sleepy state for a while. I wasn’t in a hurry to get up today because my husband’s schedule was a little different . . . just for today. He let me know that he’d walk Gracie this morning to free up time for me to do whatever. As the clock approached 7, I suddenly remembered that there’s a meditation time at my club I usually only am able to attend on Thursdays. With gusto I jumped out of bed, quickly got ready, grabbed my mat, water, and two crystals, and headed out the door.

A word about the two crystals, Quartz and Amber

Quartz point wand, featured in a recent post, expressed the aspect of the “unconditional”, an opportunity to connect to source in the spaces between the structure of molecules and the physical realm. (You can read about the Spirituality of Unconditional Source here.) This particular quartz point radiates deep understanding, a connection to information, strength and understanding.

The amber palm “stone” I’ve worked with for many years. Often, it helps release and remove negative energies, assisting in repair, especially where there has been injury. In a recent meditation with amber it reflected the concept of forgiveness to me. So, with these two crystals working together, I theorized the concept of unconditional forgiveness could be achieved.

Unconditional Forgiveness

I held amber to my heart and chose to place quartz in front of me. Almost immediately after settling in to my silent, meditative state, I felt my father’s energy come through. He looked young, in his 30’s perhaps. This would have been the age in which he left my mother, when I was only two years old.  My brothers, older than me, would have many more memories of him and the heart-ache he caused our family. Though my mother expressed many emotions and experiences around their time together and how he treated her and my brothers, I know it wasn’t easy. I was perhaps spared the experience of really knowing him.

In later years, when I was older, we did meet. We formed a somewhat courteous and very temporary acknowledgement of each other.  When he passed away, I felt nothing. I’d made no room in my heart for him based on the emotions and information from my family. Yet here I was, face-to-face with my father in his 30’s. I saw him as his soul expression in physical form, playing a role of the abusive, absent, angry, narcissistic, uncaring father. He only asked for my forgiveness in the heart-ache he caused me throughout my life. 

I admit I was surprised by this interaction. My father has not been on my mind. Yet, without further hesitation, I forgave him. In fact, seeing him in this way, forgiveness was an easy thing to do. I was surprised at how easy it flowed from my heart. (I almost missed the opportunity, I felt, if I’d stayed in bed this morning.)

The Physical Results of Forgiveness

Meditation class was followed on the hour by the regularly scheduled Joint Health class. As we moved our knees, hips, and shoulders around in all possible ways I felt a certain fluidity I hadn’t noticed before. Any discomfort I previously held in my right hip was gone. I sensed that I was well-oiled and even moved without tension in the area of my sacral chakra. It occurred to me that the act of unconditional forgiveness has immediately perceived benefits. In my mind, I know this. I practice gratitude, offer prayers, accept abundance, and say all the words that spiritual healers say. However, meeting my father’s spirit in meditation offered me a depth of understanding for which we always strive.

In my Embodied Spirit online course, this is part of Module 2, Truth. In Module 2 you have opportunities to intellectually examine where pain is held in the body. Then you free yourself from pain and burdens to move through darkness toward enlightenment. It doesn’t happen fast for everyone. Yet the journey itself is worth so much more.

I hope you’ll join us.

 

Spiritual Leadership with Reiki

I was asked recently what it means to be a leader. As a spiritual leader, Reiki Master, Shaman, and a spiritual healer, I have little time to ponder leadership, except to say that “I Am”. From the perspective of a person in business, self-employed, teaching Reiki classes and doing private sessions, it really is important to have a handle on technology. I update my own websites (yes, I have more than one), write my own blog articles, and research and invest in supplements and products my clients need for healing and recovery. For example, I now carry InLight Medical infrared light pads after researching and using light therapy pads for approximately two years.

Returning to the concept of leadership, I like to go back to the fundamentals of Reiki and shamanism. These fundamentals set the framework for everything else I do. Before even getting out of bed, I activate my palms with Reiki symbols and balance my chakras with Reiki and a short meditation. At the start of my day, my shower includes a blessing of water flowing over me with intentions of washing away what no longer serves me. I anoint myself with essential oils on my feet holding intentions of receiving (on the left foot) and offering (on the right foot) in a ritualistic fashion. My morning continues with blessing my food and watering my plants (also with a blessing). Reading the comics is a priority over news. Walking the dog is a priority over work. Silence is a priority over music and television.

You may ask how these fundamentals make me a leader. It really depends on who and what you’re leading – and not leading. I’m not leading any fights, wars, or injustices. Though these circumstances exist, I believe we add to the mass consciousness and manifestation of trauma and injustice by focusing on it. I’d rather lead people in kindness, compassion, and thoughtful words. I’d rather lead people in a way of being healthy that honors Spirit living within us. I’d rather lead people who choose to learn how to live because they resonate with a higher vibration. You might say I’m leading a movement for BE-ing in a way that supports our natural world while we occupy it.

Things bother me, too. I’m bothered by the amount of plastics and toxicity, and take steps within my personal space to reduce using them, and to detoxify my body daily. I wish my brother didn’t have neuropathy, or that his wife didn’t have to endure a long, slow demise from cancer. I struggle with some personal relationships in which I know there’s a widening gap. Yet through it all, I continue with Reiki as a tool for enlightenment and possibilities that I can’t yet understand with my human brain.

We’re all on a journey of self-discovery that we hope leads to prosperity, abundance, joy, and the manifestation of Goodness in our lives. As a leader, I see myself setting an example, teaching classes, having productive conversations, and simply offering insight offered to me as a humble conduit from Source. Reiki may be one of the most beneficial classes you’ll ever take for enlightenment, empowerment, peace, and self-healing.

Reiki classes are offered monthly. I hope you can join us.

Spirituality of Unconditional Source

20180730_145911Last week as I chose a crystal to accompany me on my meditation, I let go of any preconceived ideas about which crystal to choose and for which purpose. My only intention, honestly, was to have a friend along to be present with me while I connected to the divine. Oh, yes, sometimes I choose a specific stone with which to work. Maybe it’s one that’s newly acquired, or jumping out at me from my table of assorted crystals. However, in this case, the crystal that wanted to join me on my journey was a “singing quartz point” I received from a friend in Arizona. I was originally drawn to having such a crystal in my set of crystal friends when I first met one more than a year ago while in teacher training for advanced sound healing classes. Little did I know that bringing one into my life would have such a profound impact.

The Physical Nature of Spirit

First, let me tell you about the physical nature of this particular quartz crystal. As with most quartz points, this one has six sides, and six facets which all come to a point at one end with a growth pattern of 4-5-3-3-4-5. That means that each of the pointed facets have edges that, when counted may reveal something about its nature and function. It has markings on the sides indicating its use as a record keeper. There is some indication of “damage” which created a rainbow effect in one intersection of the faces. Small crystals attached to two of the sides are referred to as barnacles indicating new energy, while markings of an imprint embed the energy of a crystal that may have grown adjacent to this one. Partly clear and partly clouded, it’s the perfect balance of masculine and feminine wisdom.

Though people most often associate physical characteristics of quartz points with their energy and their meaning, I like to notice those features “second”, after I get to know the feeling of the spirit within the crystal. I often prompt my Reiki students to rely on their own senses to receive messages from any crystals we have in class. As I sat in silence and quieted my mind, I was quickly invited IN, inside the crystal, as I have often experienced when meditating with quartz. Experiencing the feeling of quartz from an inside perspective slows things down and I can see as well as feel the inner nature of the Being with whom I’m communicating. Images of molecular structure and the 3-dimensional components of chemistry and biology passed by my mind as I went deeper into the story unfolding before me. I heard the word “conditional” and instantly knew that the crystal held to my heart as well as the crystal in which I walked spoke to me about how the 3-dimensional world relied on what we understood as Laws of Science. Atoms get together, electrons move around, one molecule joins with another, and so forth, because that’s the way our earth exists for us.

Then my focus shifted to the space between the atoms and physical structures. The space became vast, uncluttered by physical construction, patterns, and “conditions”. I felt myself become instantly uplifted and unencumbered by my own physicality. I heard the word “unconditional” and knew, at least in part, the meaning of the message. The Divine Source exists in the unconditional state – in the spaces between the fabrication of our seen reality. Objects and structures exist only on the “condition” of scientific laws, the ones we understand and apply to 3-dimensional rules . . . positive attracts negative, for example. In the unconditional realm of infinite possibilities, we must give up any misconceptions about our existence.

What If?

Though science tells me that silicone dioxide makes up the chemical composition of quartz, it feels to me that simplifying a spiritual being (the one dwelling in quartz on this dimensional plane) overlooks the magic we all hold inside us. We’re unconditional beings living in a conditional world. What if we approached our sense of being and purpose as “magical”, “unlimited”, and “unconditional”?

Sometimes I hear words that come across as excuses as to why a person can’t achieve their goals, have money, prosperity, love, joy, clarity, and all the things that feel beyond reach to them. Though I won’t diminish how people really feel about their circumstances or the moments that led up to their conditional conclusions, I will offer that perhaps another view exists – one already inside us, in the spaces between the physical structures of muscles, bones, cells, and electrons. Those spaces are much more vast, and more powerful than the 3-dimensional conditional “reality” outside of spirit.

Embodied Spirit

Have you discovered your Soul’s Purpose? Do you have answers to the big questions – Who am I? Why am I here? What is my soul’s purpose? How do I manifest everything I want? In an effort to share a process that goes beyond the physical plane to the unconditional way of being, I’ve developed an online course called Embodied Spirit. As I prepare to launch  Embodied Spirit™ I’m inviting a few people who feel ready to go beyond limitations to discover new possibilities.

First, fill in the form on my website here to get access to my free ebook. Then, I’m accepting a limited number of applications (only 15 people) to participate in the Pre-Launch class. This is offered at a dramatically reduced price of only $249 for the first four modules, after which you have the option to continue modules 5-7 for only $99 (a total investment of only $348). After the course officially launches later, the price will be $997.

I know you’re going to love it, but just in case you have any reservations, if you’re not completely satisfied with the pre-launch course, your investment can be applied toward any private sessions or classes. Just let me know within 30 days of purchase to make the adjustment.

Emergency Kit for Lightworkers

Though safe travel involves careful planning, little things may come up that require your attention. As a Lightworker – energy healer – you’re already utilizing your gifts and talents to clear space, keep yourself grounded and protected in large groups, and ensure a restful sleep in a strange environment, right? However, if you want to select a few extra tools for your basic emergency kit, I’d like to suggest these as wonderful options to support you and your family as you travel.

Lightworker Care For Pets:

Essential oils* (see below) are a natural option to help in many situations that come up while on vacation.

  • To help protect from fleas and ticks I used Purification on Gracie before going outside in the tall grasses of Central Oregon. Rub one or two drops into your palms and apply by rubbing all over legs, neck, tail, belly, and back. If you have single essential oils, try Tea tree, citronella, or lavender. If a bite or wound does occur, lavender can be applied directly to the skin.
  • Lemon essential oil came in handy when Gracie sat in pine pitch. Instead of cutting away her beautiful fur, or pulling out the pine needles, I applied lemon essential oil directly to the pine pitch and rubbed her fur gently until the pitch was dissolved and her fur was clean.
  • Over-doing the exercise? Muscle aches and joint discomfort can be alleviated with a mix of Raindrop essential oils. (This is a great opportunity to combine your energy healing work – Reiki – with essential oils). Use your customized Raindrop mix along the spine. Also try PanAway directly to sore areas, for example shoulders, and add Copaiba essential oil (high in beta-caryophyllene which is a CBD – cannabinoid compound naturally found in the copaiba tree resin). Copaiba essential oil from Young Living is more than 50% β-caryophyllene.

Tuning forks (sound healing) are surprisingly easy to include in your Lightworker’s emergency kit. I selected these tuning forks and had the occasion to use them several times:

  • OM tuners – after activating the fork, use the stem to apply to trigger points or sore areas. The vibration of OM travels deep into the body, bringing nitric oxide produced by the cells into the bloodstream. (learn more about nitric oxide from my previous article) I used two OM tuners on Bruno, my son’s dog after he had a vigorous time chasing the ball. Oils are applied first along the spine and sore areas. Then use the OM tuners in the same areas.
  • Crystal tuner – with a vibration of 4096 Hz, this small friend to Lightworkers has many uses. Since animals may be sensitive to sound, it’s likely your animal is also sensitive to the energies of previous inhabitants. Use the crystal tuner gently in spaces around the accommodations to clear unwanted energies. Energize food and water by tapping the crystal tuner to a quartz crystal, and sounding over your meal.

Lightworker Care For People:

Of course, all of the above mentioned essential oils and techniques can be used for humans. In addition, see how I enhanced my experiences on vacation. Essential oils are a favorite tool for me. Here are a few ideas for you to include in your energy self-care:

  • Vetiver essential oil is great as a scent and for feeling grounded in large crowds. It’s very thick, loaded with sesquiterpenes that last a long time in your body.
  • Anoint your feet with a drop of ImmuPower blend or frankincense mixed with a dab of shea butter or your favorite lotion. I love ImmuPower essential oil. It feels like the Divine in a bottle to me. While you’re anointing your feet, take the opportunity to state your intentions for the day.
  • Sunburn heals faster when properly cared for. Avoid ingesting citrus essential oils before exposure to sun. Sun exposure that leads to reddened skin can be soothed by lavender and myrrh essential oil mixed with an oil carrier high in antioxidants such as rosehip oil or marula oil. Add a dab of deep penetrating face cream with hyaluronic acid as an assistant to skin care healing. Always avoid additives that aren’t natural (like propylene glycol).
  • Stay clean when using public restrooms. Use a drop of Thieves essential oil to help sanitize, or make a spritzer with water and Thieves oil blend. Have a bottle in the car for easy access while traveling.
  • Sleep easier in a strange environment with your custom blend of essential oils. Try lavender, valerian, frankincense, Ruta, vetiver, and the flower of your choice (geranium, rose, chamomile,  or ylang ylang). Diffuse in the air, spritz, or apply to your feet for easy sleep and renewal.

Self-care may be one of the most important components of your Lightworker’s Emergency kit. Be sure to take time daily for meditative moments, and connecting to nature. If you need more ideas or would like to order products, please ask! I’d love to hear from you.

Purification

During a recent Reiki class here at my healing center in Portland, we prepared for the weekend as we always do – setting an intention for self and others – then drawing a card from a well-loved deck of oracle cards. One card that came up was called Purification, and the messages it brought seemed to ring true for not only the student who chose it, but for everyone throughout the weekend. Why might that happen? Is there some significance about purification that matters enough to keep “speaking” to us over the course of two days?

Purification is defined as the removal of something (a toxin, an element, an entity, for example) from a person’s physical body, the environment, or from any substance to contain compounds or constituents that are not a part of the WHOLE. Spiritually speaking, purification may involve releasing more than removing. The difference comes from self-instituted intentions for empowerment. What needs cleansing?

Self

Just as with healing, the first part of cleansing always begins with SELF. What would you cleanse for yourself? We care for the physical body with daily washing – showering, hand washing, etc. – on the outside. However, cleansing on the inside is of utmost importance. Consider foods, choosing raw and unprocessed as much as possible over processed. Consider personal care products, choosing clean and natural over synthetic ones filled with chemical additives. Consider filtered water over tap or bottled water. Consider antioxidants and natural supplements (minerals, herbs, zeolite) over sugars and hydrogenated fats.

Environment

Your personal space should be considered next in the purification process. What have you accumulated as “stuff” over the years that no longer serve you? What’s in your space that really isn’t yours? Do you have a process in place that ensures optimal support for your clean, pure self? Consider the chemicals you choose for cleaning in your home. Are they natural essential oils or synthetic chemicals and toxic poisons? Are you using plastic containers, a microwave oven, non-stick cookware with PFOAs? Having a clean, toxin-free environment is part of the purification process. However, also consider sound, light, and people as part of the environment. How can you improve and purify in these areas?

Intention

As a part of Reiki training, I offers several methods of purification to assist in holding the energy for safe and sacred space, and to help clear unwanted energies from the etheric field as well as from our sacred spaces. Intention is a powerful tool to use for purification. Formulate how you would intend for your space to be clear of unwanted energies. Design a statement that represents what you really want. If this seems daunting, confusing, or overwhelming, start with a simple awareness of how you feel in any particular space or situation. Notice how you’d prefer to feel and go with words that support that feeling. For example, you might use words like, “I feel safe.”

Purification Tools

I’ve made a short list here of tools you can use for cleansing. Remember that these tools are intended more for empowerment as you go through the process of purification. They help you release, letting go of energies that no longer support your purity, wholeness, and manifestation of the highest expression of yourself.

Essential Oils

Plant medicine may be the easiest to use and the easiest to obtain. Use plants in their “original” form as leaves, roots, stems, and flowers. However, using pure therapeutic grade essential oils from Young Living may be even more potent (and more valuable) for your needs. Whether in meditation, ceremony, or cleansing your environment, these essential oils work magically to bring about a feeling of wholeness and purity. Here are a few I like for sacred ceremony and purification. Use them in a diffuser, spritzer, or apply a drop directly to hands, gently rub in and inhale.

Purification

 

 

 

Sound Vibrations

Sound frequencies, whether using your own voice (as in chanting, singing, or toning) or selecting an instrument of sound such as a tuning fork or drum, provide many benefits for purification. Try, for example, a higher frequency of 4096 Hz to call in the angelic realm, or the frequency of OM to feel more grounded and connected to earth energy.

tuning forks

 

  • Angel – 4096 Hz
  • OM – 136.1 Hz
  • Solfeggio 528 – Magic and Transformation
  • Chanting, toning
  • Drum
  • Rattle

 

Let me know if you have any questions. I’d love to hear from you. Contact Rosemary.

 

Working with Guides

When I was writing this webinar I realized that my topic of working with guides rapidly grew to include subjects that are sometimes hard to talk about – like pain and suffering. The web of discovery, growth, and stepping further along your path of spiritual mastery isn’t always pleasant. You can’t just look it up in a book or flip open an oracle deck of cards to get answers to the tough questions. Though those tools are fun and exciting (and often very satisfyingly accurate), spiritual mastery involves reaching deep into your psyche to uncover the stuff of nightmares, hardships, and challenges as well as discovery, alignment, truth, and wholeness.

In tonight’s webinar we draw attention to the Wounded Healer in shamanic practices. Learn more about loneliness, suffering, and a way to find truth and clarity in working with guides.

 

How to Basics for Self Care

People who schedule a healing session with me often feel like they’re refreshed and revitalized. I know it will last a while, because we intend for that – sealing in the new energies and allowing for integration over time. Since all sessions are recorded, my clients get to listen and experience their appointments again, reliving the sound healing and beautiful vibrations of peace and rejuvenation.
But what about the time between appointments? How do you know when it’s time to reschedule? I liken this between time to hair growth. If you wait too long between haircuts, you’ll know because your hair will be too long, unmanageable, or not look good, right? The same may be true for energy healing. Waiting too long between appointments can mean feeling depleted, overwhelmed, unclear, or uncomfortable.

That’s why I’ve developed a self-care list for you to use – until we can schedule your next appointment.

Self Care Healing Maintenance

1. Get “it” all out. Get rid of “it”. Such a broad command, but with huge benefits. What comes to mind when you’re wondering what “it” is? Is it stuff in the house you should throw away, donate, or recycle? Is it words you need to say? Crying? Shouting? Is it a habit or a relationship? Is it toxins – either in your diet or stored within cells in the body? Only you know for sure. The beauty is that once you get started with the clearing process, you find more ways of letting go. This is one of my top recommendations for self care. Get “it” ALL out. It’s a great way to open the possibilities for any step that comes next.

2. Get OUTSIDE. I can’t emphasize this one enough. Even if getting outside means facing the elements, bundle up. All that fresh air is asking you to breathe deeply. The ground beckons you to take a stroll and reconnect with the sites and sounds of nature. Feel the sun – or the rain – on your face. Smell the scents of freshness not readily available inside. While you’re outside, DISCONNECT from the electronic world and tap into the natural world. Pretend that cell phones don’t exist and you have nothing calling you away from your most important priority of remembering that you are a part of nature – and nature is a part of you.

3. HONOR yourself, your presence, your body, and your space. Fill everything with only wholeness and beauty – beautiful food, beautiful things, music, plants, scents, words, images, etc. When you honor yourself, you become a priority – one that deserves attention and care. Furthermore, you honor the divine (God) in you. Caring for and honoring yourself maximizes your presence, your health, and your strength for all that is yet to come.

4. Get Help when you need it. It’s okay to say you’re ready to receive help. The above list gets you through the between times. Healing appointments fortify you with new energies and stimulate growth. Healing appointments facilitate clearing, grounding, transformation, and repair on a deeper level.

Are you ready to schedule your next healing appointment with me? I’d love to see you. Just fill in the form below and we’ll get started.

Our Deep Love for Animals

When I was a teenager, my middle brother, Richard, came home with a puppy. It was a surprise to everyone in the house – all six of us – since we hadn’t talked about it. Maybe I was out of the loop, so to speak, but I remember my brother proclaiming ownership even though we all claimed LOVE for this new family member he named Lucky.

Richard and IndyThroughout the years, Lucky was my constant companion as my brother joined the army and spent several years overseas. Lucky lived to be about 13 years old when he finally struggled with cancer in his neck (a story I wrote about in my book, Heal Together).

More recently, my brother adopted a rescue from Arkansas named India (he plans to call her Indy). Indy arrived to a snowy New Hampshire in the evening as the sun was setting. She’s already melting my heart – even from across the continent. As a veteran, and a recent widower, my brother has his challenges. I used to worry about his loneliness since his wife passed away last year. Now I know his spirits will be lifted with her presence, vitality and love. What a sweet girl!

What makes our connections to animals so important?

I believe animals keep us sane. They make us laugh, keep us company, remind us of our own capability to love – and keep us moving when we’d sometimes just rather sit. They listen to our words without judgement and help us feel safe and loved. The basics we hope to receive from human companionship are sometimes impossible for us – but animals make it possible.

For me and many others around the world, we’re animal lovers through-and-through. It’s not only dogs and cats, but also birds and many other animal companions we bring into our lives. That’s why what we do for them matters. We want to keep them safe and well. We want them to live long and happy lives as family members, our babies, and even our soul connections.

I spoke with my brother about the food he plans to give Indy, and a few other details. Later this week I’ll offer blessings in a healing session and check in with Indy via animal communication to see if she has any important messages to share with her new caretaker. I know she’s in good hands. I heard the ball bouncing in the background when I called him the other day. She’s playing fetch and finally returned the ball to him – smart girl. She loves the 14 inches of snow he has in the back yard. I can’t wait to hear more about my new “niece”.

Checking in with your animal

It’s possible to break the language barrier and go straight to the heart of communicating with animals. Though most of us already know what are animals are saying, we sometimes have emotions or doubt blocking the way. In addition, if an animal has passed away, we might feel even more disconnected from the deeply felt loss. Fortunately, our animals are always there (spiritually) and are ready to speak with us – in “person” or in spirit.

It’s our deep love for animals that allows a conversation to take place. Animals appear to us in dreams, memories, and in the quiet moments of our lives. This is a skill you can practice or learn. But perhaps you’d like to not wait to develop this skill of animal communication. I’m happy to offer this service, for animals who are in physical form or who have passed.

Please contact Rosemary to schedule a time for your appointment. Go directly to Natural Pet Health Alternatives to learn more.

Nitric Oxide and Healing

Self-healing Magic Built Into Your Body

We all know that the human body has the innate ability to heal itself. What seems to puzzle us is HOW that happens and learning what we can do to promote natural healing as well as staying healthy throughout all our challenges. Though it’s usually a good idea to have the support of your doctor for tests and expert medical information, I believe that’s a tiny fraction of the healing process.  Perhaps you’re like me and would rather support the body’s self-healing magic. If so, you’ll be interested to learn about nitric oxide, what it does, and what we can do on our own to use nitric oxide to promote healing.

A tiny molecule written chemically as NO, nitric oxide, was considered as “Molecule of the Year” in 1992 when Nobel prize winners, Robert F. Furchgott, PhD, Louis J. Ignarro, PhD, and Ferid Murad, MD, PhD published their research. Nitric oxide signals the cardiovascular and nervous systems to relax – an important function in view of hypertension, and stress. Clinically, nitric oxide is just coming into view as a gentle way to support health and healing – wherever blood flow is important.

What does Nitric Oxide do?

Nitric oxide stimulates blood vessels, muscles, and cells to relax. Take a deep breath now. Notice how tense you feel as you inhale, and perhaps hold your breath for a second. Now exhale completely. As you exhale, feel your shoulders, back, and body relax. Even your mind “lets go” for a moment. The feeling you have upon exhalation is similar to the cell’s experience as it produces, then releases, nitric oxide. When nitric oxide is present in small amounts, surrounding cells respond. In addition, nitric oxide becomes complexed to glutathione, hemoglobin and other proteins – then dissociated back to nitric oxide. As a result, nitric oxide benefits may be felt throughout the body as it’s easily transported as complex molecules.(1)

Research shows that nitric oxide affects the immune system, encouraging the germ-eating white blood cells to become active. Also, the cardiovascular system responds to the presence of nitric oxide by dilating blood vessels, thus promoting increased blood flow and reduced blood pressure (2). In addition, as an anti-inflammatory compound, research shows benefits as a pain-reliever and free-radical scavenger (preventing cell damage and aging). Bone and joint health as well as recovery from injury are supported with nitric oxide. Memory improvement, learning, and memory tasks benefit from the presence of nitric oxide (3).

Cells can, in fact, produce their own nitric oxide under the right circumstances. However, due to free-radical damage, the benefits of nitric oxide seem dwarfed to the task of keeping up. Your intention for healing then becomes more important as you focus on the WHOLE body, rather than on just one molecule, thing, practice, supplement, or modality. Fortunately, when you begin healing the WHOLE, you also support the tiny aspects of healing we take for granted – like nitric oxide production. You can promote the production of nitric oxide in your own body very simply. Here’s how.

How the Body Makes Nitric Oxide

Vibration holds the key to making and transporting nitric oxide within the body. Vibration exists everywhere as sound, movement, light, water, nutrients, plants and animals, etc. Therefore, supplements high in antioxidants have important value in helping to create nitric oxide. So does connecting to nature, like listening to crickets, birds, and trees blowing in the breeze, or waves lapping on the shore. Choose all of the “right” vibrations that help bring that feeling of relaxation – like the exhale we practiced early in the article.

Tuning forks may be one of the easiest ways to directly stimulate the production of nitrix oxide in the body. In particular, the 528 Hz tuning fork as an auditory tuner, or body tuners (weighted tuners that carry vibrations down the stem) have tremendous benefit. Whether you’re listening to the healing frequencies, or feeling the vibration of tuning forks placed directly on the body, nitric oxide produced by the cells begins its healing magic.

 

Learn More about Sound Healing

Sound healing with Solfeggio frequencies in tuning forks is a do-it-yourself method of stimulating the production of nitric oxide. Contact Rosemary to learn more, experience tuning forks in a healing session (ultimate relaxation!) or participate in a class for using tuning forks with your clients. Rosemary now offers 12 Continuing Education hours that may be applied toward licensing for health care practitioners.
