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.

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.

When Your Heart Speaks, Are You Listening?

In all my biology classes that I ever attended or taught, I never learned anything about the heart like I’m about to share here in this class for Spiritual Mastery. The heart’s physiology is indeed fascinating. I was hooked on the heart’s anatomy and physiology at a young age – enthralled by the transparent images overlapping one another in my encyclopedia when I was only about ten years old. I followed the arteries and veins of the circulatory system as arrows pointed out the direction of deoxygenated blood flowing from heart to lungs, then oxygenated blood flowing from lungs to heart, up to the brain and throughout the body. I loved the idea that valves opened and closed, directing not only the direction of the flow, but also the rhythm and speed of the pump. Lub-dub, lub-dub. Lub-dub. I felt for my pulse inquisitively in my neck and wrist, marveling that my whole body echoed the rhythm in my chest.

When you’re a child, there’s room for delight and discovery with the physical nature of the body.  Our embodiment as spiritual beings carries the essence of life, vibrating in harmony with life in the universe. Just as we stir in the early hours of the day to awaken our physical awareness, we also activate our harmonic coherence to the rising sun in its warmth, light, and sounds of nature awakening also. We’re in rhythm with earth’s rotation facing us toward and away from the sun, as well as its yearly revolution informing us of the seasonal changes. In our dream state we harmonize with the rhythm of our breath, letting the innate systems of our bodies forget the tasks of thinking, remembering, and doing to simply BE in a state of harmony while we sleep.

Yet, as adults (or even as school-age children) we subject ourselves to a different timepiece – one of obligation, judgement, habit, and resistance. How do these rhythms affect our lives as we continue to live and grow in our relationships, at home and at work? How can we tap into harmony, health, prosperity and abundance with ease?

The forgotten piece of the puzzle is the heart. I don’t mean its anatomy or physiology. I’m referring to the spirituality of the heart that is closely tied to innate wisdom. Learn more in my Spiritual Mastery Webinar. Then give me a call to set up a time when you can tap into your heart’s wisdom – the wisdom to which your brain seems to not always listen.
