One of the Best Ways to Decrease Stress, Anxiety, Depression and Overcome Chronic Pain

Everyone feels stress at one time or another, and much of it comes from the fast pace of today's society, and the pressure it puts on us to get ahead, or just keep our heads above water. For many, stress creates a constant stream of negative thoughts that, if unchecked, can lead to anxiety or depression. Indeed, the stress itself may be created by chronic pain that is almost impossible to control, creating a vicious cycle that has a serious effect on the quality of a person's life

Is there anything you can do? Scientist and doctors have shown that there is something that is of tremendous help, and numerous studies have shown that it can produce a significant improvement in the life of people afflicted with the above problems. It is called mindfulness. Although it is related to meditation, it is actually quite different. Simply, it is defined as releasing yourself from the past with all its regrets and disappointments, and from the future with all its worries, and concentrating only on the present. In short, it encourages you to cast all your problems and concentrating only on what you are doing at the present moment.

A list of many of the things it can help is as follows. It can:

• relieve stress

• alleviate chronic pain

• relate both anxiety and depression

• improve sleep

• prevent heart disease

• alleviate gastrointestinal problems

Let's look briefly at each of the above. As mentioned earlier, everyone experiences stress, but for some people it becomes overwhelming and chronic. In effect, they experience stress overload, and when this happens it can lead to all sorts of problems. Most of the problems in the above list, in fact, can be traced to excessive stress. If you can reduce this stress, you will clearly reduce any of the above problems you may have. And mindfulness is designed to reduce stress.

One of the things that creates stress is chronic pain. Although medications help to some degree, in many cases it is difficult to overcome and control the pain, and there's no doubt that people with this condition experience a decreed quality of life. Mindfulness allows these people to detach themselves from their pain by encouraging them to minimize their reaction to the emotions and distressing thoughts associated with the pain. In short, it teaches them to observe the pain, but not react in the usual way to it.

Depression and anxiety are two other devastating conditions that rob people of joy and a sense of well-being. Both are relatively common in our society, and they are usually treated by medications, along with therapy. The biggest problem once they have been alleviated is recurrence. After a period of a few months or sometimes a year or so they come back. Because of this, patients are encouraged to continue with therapy after the symptoms stop. One of the best therapies for these conditions is mindfulness, and it is also helpful after they have been controlled to make sure they do not re-occur.

Another problem that affects many people is lack of sleep. In particular, they are unable to fall sleep easily when they go to bed, or they wake up in the night and are unable to get back to sleep. And it's well-known that lack of sleep has a serious effect on your immune system and your heart. Furthermore, it has recently been shown that it is critical for maximum brain function. According to recent research, toxic waste is removed from your brain while you sleep in the same way that your lymphatic system rids your body of toxic wastes. As you will see, mindfulness can also help you sleep better.

High blood pressure is also helped by mindfulness. High blood pressure, or hypertension, as it is usually called, is a serious problem. If left untreated it can lead to stroke, aneurisms, heart attack and even death. Indeed, even moderate hypertension can cut your lifespan by up to four years. One of the major problems with it is that it usually has no symptoms. It is therefore important to control it as quickly as possible after you detect it.

Many other things are helped by mindfulness including heart and cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal problems, inflammatory bowel disease and even HIV, so it's obviously something that is worth learning about and applying. The following steps show you how to apply it.

• Begin by finding a quiet, peaceful place and a comfortable chair, although as I will mention later, mindfulness can also be performed almost anywhere and at any time.

• Relaxation is important, so start by relaxing. Let yourself go. Feel the tension go out of your shoulders and neck, then concentrate on your arms, legs and body. Relax them as completely as possible

• When you're completely relaxed, you're ready to focus. The whole idea of ​​mindfulness is to remove the past and future from your thoughts and concentrate, or focus, on the present. This allows you to leave all your problems and troubles behind.

• Do not try to stifle your emotions and feeling, however. And do not try to block out the world. Experience the things around you as fully as possible. Furthermore, if thoughts come into your mind, make no judgments about them. Merely observes them and let them pass, then focus back on the present.

• Concentrate on your breathing. Breath in and out slowly through your nose, letting your abdomen expand and contract with each breath.

• Finally, let your emotions come into play. In particular, feel the joy of the moment. Let it flow through you.

How long should you do this? Ten minutes is a good number to shoot for at first. But as you get better you will no doubt want to go longer, so try for twenty minutes. Anyways, do not worry about the time. Even a few minutes will help. Indeed, as I mentioned earlier, you do not have to be relaxed in a comfortable chair to perform mindfulness; you can perform it anytime – particularly when you feel stressed.

A variation of the above that is also very helpful is to use music. In this case you focus or concentrate on the music rather than your breath. The music should be soothing, easy-listening music; new age and classical are best. Listen to the music carefully; let it flow over you, and soak up the emotions and feelings that it creates within you. Concentrate on them. If other thoughts creep into your mind bring your focus back to the music as quickly as possible.

So, while mindfulness is not a cure-all, it is very helpful in a large number of health problems, and with practice it can make a significant change in your life.

New Behavior Approach to Parenting Children With ADHD and Other Rule Breaking Behaviors

Do you have children in your life who:

appear angry or defiant?

exhibit temper tantrums?

do not respond to traditional discipline techniques?

Do you, as a parent:

find yourself yelling all the time?

feel like you're not having any fun with your kids?

feel stressed out or anxious?

There is an approach that can help.

The Nurtured Heart Approach ™ (NHA) created by Howard Glasser, is a method of parenting children with ADHD and others who are highly intestinal or difficult, by transforming the focus of their intensity and energy from one of ongoing opposition, negativity and failure, into one of success and achievement. It's about recognizing and reflecting successes in every moment with your child. The good news is that this approach works with all children – whether they are impulsive, unmotivated, anxious, hyper, shy, feel entitled, etc. By using the methods outlined in the Nurtured Heart, all children flourish!

Traditional parenting methods may work for the average child, but are not designed for the intense child and the harder parent's try to implement these conventional methods, the worse the situation may get. Once the parent removes the computer, phone, TV and all other privileges, what options is the parent left with? The truth of the matter is that the child is running the show and is not afraid of his parents.

I help families with spirited children by having the parents recognize and celebrate the child's positive behaviors and reflect them back to the child, while giving no attention to the negative behaviors. Particularly intense kids who get all of our delicious, luscious attention when they are misbehaving and breaking rules so they rise to that expectation- why would they give that up?

We as parents, accidently energize the choices we do not want our children to make, by giving out $ 100 bills in the form of our attention, focus, and relationship. Energetically we hand out big bucks all the time. Children can feel clearly invisible when they are not breaking the rules and perceive the juicy connection when they do because the energy we give is often “upside down”.

By realizing that we are the gift being thought by our children, we can now decide how to give them our attention, energy, and relationship. We can either focus on the negative – the whining, name calling, temper tantrums, back-talking, and all of the other undesirable behaviors, or we can change our focus and energize the children for all of the non-rule breaking behaviors that they do every day.

Once the adult begins to celebrate the child's positive behaviors, the parent creates a juicier, more spiritual nutritious “time-in”. As the child feels “nourished” by the parent, he will begin use his intensity in more successful ways.

Parents and teachers need to make a child feel valued. This is accomplished by recognizing the child's positive choices and reflecting them back to the child in these moments to give the child a first-hand experience of success. Children do not always know what they are doing right- they need our help.

This technique is a remarkable way of showing your child that you notice and care about many aspects of their life … It is not only a way of feeding their emotional reserve, but of proving that they are not invisible. Indeed, many children feel that they are invisible unless they are either going to the trouble of acting out or doing something exceptionally well.

By noticing the child for his everyday good choices, the child begins to feel valued and has a sense of belonging, not for something fabulous that they accomplished, but just for being who he is in each moment. Once you begin to implement this approach and the child feels “seen” – the parent will see the behaviors in their home shift and the child will show up in their greatness!

Energy Healing: How Long Will It Take?

Hello! I thought I'd write this week about something I am often asked by new clients: “How long does it (ie the healing process) take?” This is typically asked by someone who has come to see me with a specific, often chronic health issue.

And actually, it's something that's very hard to give an answer to: even if I have had the experience of another client with exactly the same “illness”, it is very likely that the way it manifests in someone else's body is different, and so the way in which the 2 people will respond to healings will also be different. Also, the way that people look after themselves outside of healing sessions, in terms of lifestyle and habits, can also make a difference difference to the way they respond to healings.

Having said all that, there are some things that may “resolve” themselves quite quickly. The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is quite renamed for being able to “clear” fears, phobias and even addictions within 1 or 2 sessions. So, if someone is, for example, afraid of flying, this can often be addressed within a few rounds of tapping with EFT. Even here, however, if the problem is caused by something that is more deep-seated, or there are several contributing factors to the fear, this can also take a bit longer to clear.

In the case of chronic illness, or even acute, reoccurring illness, it is very common to notice an improvement, and in some cases a dramatic improvement, within 1 or 2 sessions. Generally, however, the process of healing works through “layers” of “stuff” that is held in the body – and continuing with this process can lead to changes that go beyond the reasons for initially coming for healing.

This is certainly my own experience with ME / chronic fatigue. Although it is certainly true to say that I have “healed” myself (I find this more accurate than saying energy healing has “healed me”) of chronic fatigue, in that I have ample energy to go about my everyday life – and can manage things physically that quite honestly I had pretty much given up on ever being able to do again when I was really ill (I regularly swim for 1/2 an hour, I dance for a couple of hours at a time and I go for longish walks ), there is much more to it than that. It seems as though the healing process has put me in touch with a spontaneous, free side of myself that I had somehow or other lost in the “growing up process.” I enjoy my life more than I did before I became ill, and on a day-to-day basis am much more in touch with joy, happiness and abundance.

I think this kind of experience is quite typical of both my friends and clients who have had healings. It's also the case, and, again I think quite typical, that someone's life may look completely different after recovering from chronic illness. When I was first ill, I assumed that “getting better” meant being able to go back to my old lifestyle – which was full-time accounting work in busy and often stressful situations. Obviously my life now as an energy healer is a long way away from that!

Reiki Is Nationally Viewed As an Holistic Healing Modality

Reiki is finally on the map of healing modalities!

In its simplest translation, Reiki is universal life energy. It is the life force energy that exists in all things. The practice of Reiki is the art and science of channeling this universal life energy in a particular pattern to heal and harmonize the mental and physical body. It works to heal the whole body, not just any one specific area. Stress, worry, and emotional upset are held in the mental and emotional bodies, blocking your energy source causing aches, pains, and disease to manifest in the physical body. Reiki or “energy work” can clear these blockages and allow life's energy force to freely flow, enhancing your own body's natural healing powers. Reiki treatment is to relieve stress and pain, induction relaxation, release emotional blockages, accelerate natural healing, balance subtle energy bodies' and support other medical modalities including traditional therapies. This is a brief synopsis of the meaning of Reiki.

After many decades of Reiki's authenticity being disputed and discounted, the holistic energy treatment is gaining an entirely new respect in the medical community. Initially, the very idea of ​​the human body being surrounded by invisible life force energy was labeled absurd. The thought process is that if it is invisible, it can not be measured by traditional research or scientific instrumentation. William Lee Rand, Founder of the International Center for Reiki Training is changing all of that. In 2005, he created a peer review method for analyzing the current state of scientific studies done on Reiki programs in hospitals, clinics, and hospice facilities throughout the United States, called the Touchstone Process.

William Lee Rand also developed the Reiki in Hospitals Website and list, which is one of the most comprehensive compilations of hospitals in the world now offering Reiki. There have never before been so many studies of Reiki in a single source.

There have been many controlled studies submitted to peer-journals and The Touchstone Process for review. All disorders that had favorable outcomes to Reiki treatments include:

pain in chronic ill patients, depression, stress, cognitive assessment in elderly, related to dementia / Alzheimers, pre-operative relaxation, post-operative pain, migraine relief . It was reported that 83% of the most controlled studies, shown moderate to strong evidence in support of Reiki as a viable, therapeutic healing modality. In a press release dated September 15th, 2008, the American Hospital Association President and CEO Rich Umbdenstock stated, “Complementary and alternative medicine has shown great promise in supporting and stimulating healing. optimal healing environments for the patients they serve. ”

In conclusion, as Reiki continues to be a huge asset for the hospitals, The Touchstone Process reports will continue to help people see that Reiki is an effective healing modality first hand. As a Reiki practitioner, I am very passionate about it because just seeing the client's sense of wellbeing and calm after the pain has dissipated is pretty amazing. It would be fantastic if all of our healthcare systems helped us by helping our bodies facilitate the healing process the way it's supposedly to. Maybe it's time to get back to the basics.

Check out some of the Research Reports and Case Studies below:

Feeling Nothing In A Reiki Session – What It Means

What if you had a Reiki session, as a client or as a healer, and felt absolutely nothing? This is what a healer asked about recently, when neither the healer nor the lady she was healing felt anything at all. I hope this answer will put your mind at ease.

Reiki goes to where it is most needed for the highest good. With this in mind, let me explain some possible scenarios:

  • The lady had root causes that needed addressing urgently. However, she was not ready to. The Reiki wanted to go there, but it was not the right time.
  • The Reiki did go there and help pave the way. But, because the lady was not ready as yet (even if she stongly believes she was), the Reiki went there so gently and in such a small amount that it was imperceivable.
  • You were distracted and so could not feel the Reiki, but that does not mean that nothing was happening. I once gave a client a healing while my mind was insistent on writing a mental shopping list, over and over again, no matter what I did, for the whole session. At the end of that session, I was amazed to hear the client raving about how she loved the heat from my hands, all the visions, and the wonderful messages that she received. So being distracted does not mean that something did not happen. However, your worry stems from the client feeling nothing, so let me explain with some examples. I gave Reiki to one client who felt nothing and left feeling disappointed, despite me explaining the client experience possibilities (below). Afterwards, she came back for more, reporting feeling an overall calm from two days onwards after the session. I myself had the most amazing Reiki session when I felt absolutely nothing whatever. Afterwards, my then constant pain in the neck required no painkillers for a whole day, which was nothing short of a miracle. There is no reason why both the client and the healer feel nothing. It is perfectly normal.
  • Reiki goes to where it is most needed. If you were in an uncomfortable physical position (such as straining your back), the Reiki would have gone there, and instead of feeling it flow, you would have simply not felt the discomfort or the level of discomfort that training position was causing. If you had distracting thoughts on your mind, the Reiki would have been helping you to get clarity regarding these thoughts. With practice, you will learn how to give in to these distractions and therefore flow better with the Reiki. As you give a healing, you receive a healing.
  • Our need to “feel something” is a man-made thing. It is man's need to control. It is a mortal pleasure that we seek. Reiki is a deeply spiritual practice. You are learning to surrender this human need and transcend it by ever not even thinking about whether you or the client “feel something”. In other words, the desire to feel something during a Reiki treatment goes against the spiritual nature of Reiki. Part of your training with Reiki is to learn to be humble and surrender the expectation to feel anything during a treatment. This is very hard to learn, and you have my sympathy, as I struggled with it for years in my own learning. Remember, you are on a learning journey with Reiki.
  • Reiki heals at a very deep level that is often beyond our understanding or imagination. We are used to taking a pill and feeling the effects within 15 minutes, such as a head pillow. Reiki definitely does not work like that. People are attracted to Reiki often because they have been disenfrachised with the allopathic medicine approach. However, we have been so conditioned with this approach that we expect Reiki to work in the same way. But we seek Reiki because we want something different!

Reiki is an intelligent energy and goes to where it is most needed for the Highest Good. Reiki can be felt as hot or cold, a wave-like sensation, a vibration, an electrical feeling, images or messages, or not felt at all. The client may have a healing reaction during or after the treatment, such as giggles, tears, laugh, sobs, yawns, hiccups, burps, etc. Otherwise, the client may feel relaxed, go to sleep, or feel absolutely nothing at all. All of the above are perfectly normal. The experience may differ from session to session. We do not direct the Reiki nor dictate what should happen during the session. We simply trust that it is helping us to move forward in ways that we often do not understand, and that is the beauty of Reiki. It works at a deep spiritual level.

Enjoy your Reiki journey.

Is Energy Healing The Same As Reiki?

I thought that this week I would write about something that I'm often asked when I tell people I am an energy healer. People often say “Oh! Is that like reiki?” And my answer is generally “well … yes and no.” So, I thought I would give my own, personal response to how I see energy healing and reiki. (Other people may well view this differently – this is just my opinion.)

Reiki is said to be a specific frequency of energy that can be channeled by the healer, who has been “attuned” to this reiki energy. As the reiki practitioner works on or above the client's body, the energy will go to where it is needed to unblock any knots in the client's energy field. The unblocking on the energetic level can then lead to the healing of physical symptoms. Receiving a reiki healing is often deeply relaxing as well as very energising.

The training in energy healing that I have completed at the School of Energy Healing has a similar basis to the reiki healing I have described above. At its most basic level, as a healer, I channel energy which will go to wherever the client needs it. At the School of Energy Healing, a large component of the training was working on our own energy fields and energy levels to ensure we are clear channels. Still now, after my training has finished, I practice chi kung (energy exercises) almost every day, meditate most days, and eat a diet of nearly all raw foods, all of which helps to ensure I am physically and mentally balanced and clear when I give healings.

Energy healing is much more than just channeling energy. At the School of Energy Healing, we learned specific modalities of healing which, in my experience, can often lead to more substantial healing. For example, we trained in using sound and color in healings, as well as modalities which include a more psychotherapeutic component, such as inner child healing, relationship cord healing, or past life healings. As well as this, we learned such techniques as psychic surgery, and intention line healing – a healing that puts you in touch with your true purpose in being on earth.

In my opinion, these other components to the healing lead to more substantial healing, and can also speed up and intensify the process.

Having said all that, some of the elements of energy healing require sufficient intense process and self inquiry, which is not suitable for everyone, and which may be undesirable in cases of trauma. In this case, reiki healing is perfect.

The Aura: The Human Atmosphere

We hear the word aura, like this person has a good aura, but do we really know what it actually is? And if we know about the aura, is that something important for us?

In February 2013, north Russia was hit by meteorites from outer space. The damage caused the death of many people and the loss of some properties. The potential damage was greatly minimized because of the earth's atmosphere. Like the earth's atmosphere, we humans have our atmosphere which is called the aura. The similarities between the two are obvious: The earth's atmosphere is the shield that protects our planet from foreign objects. Everyday meteoroids enter the Earth's atmosphere. These are pieces of rock that are traveling through space. When they reach the atmosphere, most of them burn up due to the friction of the air. The ones that do not completely burn up reach the surface of the earth in a much smaller form. When they reach the earth we call them meteorites. The atmosphere consistors of 5 main layers, and it is 300 miles thick.

The human aura is also like a personal shield to the person. It can protect the person from negative energy. It consist of 7 layers and usually is 2-3 foot thick. Scientists believe that without our planet atmosphere, life on earth would be impossible. Many experts think that without a healthy aura, our emotional life would be intolerable.

This means that as we need the atmosphere of the earth, we equally need a healthy aura to be our human atmosphere.

The human aura has become a very well studied subject. This field of knowledge is now interrelated with other topics such as: healing, spiritual enlightenment, health, human energy, color therapy, meditation, yoga, and consciousness.

The aura is specifically related and connected with the concept of energy. The aura and energy are similar in many ways and sometimes it is not easy to differentiate between them. When talking about the human aura, we also need to refer to Chakras and the Meridian system, which are part of the human energy. The aura is in a way a type of energy, and this is why we have positive and negative aura. It is like the chi (for Chinese) and the prana (for Indians) that develops to make a human shield. Because of many factors and effects – both internal and external-, the energy of the person grows and develops until it takes the permanent form of a shield or as it is called the human atmosphere. That shield or atmosphere will determine the personality and energy of the person. Every individual has his / her unique aura. The aura of that person is shaped by many factors. Some people have negative aura while others have positive aura. With our current knowledge and science, we can change our aura if we need to. This subject about the aura, has become a major focus and interest for psychic science today. Studying the nature of the human aura is now understood as important for knowing different kinds of awareness and consciousness. Some scholars believe that positive aura is the doorway to better enlightenment.

2. What is The Aura?

The Webster Dictionary defines aura as “a distinct atmosphere surrounding a given source” “a luminous radius.” You are the “given source” and your aura is “a luminous radiation.”

In his book, the Human Aura, Dr. Douglas Baker said that aura is an energy unit made up of very refined matter, and it forms a sort of cloud … interpenetrating our bodies. Dr. Barbara Brennan, on the other hand, described it as “a field of energy that surrounds each of us, is a distilled reflection of everything we think, feel and are.” In addition, Joe H. Slate, Ph.D. explained in his book Aura Energy, that aura is the manifestation of the sum and substance of our existence as an endless life force in the universe.

The aura is an electromagnetic energy that surrounds things like such humans, animals, plants as well as inanimate things such as rocks, and man-made objects. This means the aura is not restricted to us the humans. This definition includes also other objects of the universe such as the earth, the sun, the moon and all planets. When the aura surrounds a planet like the earth, we call it the atmosphere. Whether the aura is for humans or non-humans, it consist of different vibrations or frequencies. This is why we are affected by different energies originating from different sources. Our energy systems as humans are connected with all energies in the universe. It is no secret that when the moon is full, we are influenced by its energy. The sun or even the stars have their minor effects on all of us.

Any object who has atoms must have an aura. This energy field which can be detected and measured by modern scientific devices can also be called in scientific terms as radiation.

When we talk about the human aura, we refer to the energy field or particles of energy around a living human body which has the shape of an egg. The human aura forms as a cloud surrounding the body from all sides, a cloud which has an oval shape like a large egg. In psychic language, it is called the halo. The word “Aura” originates from Latin as air, which originally came from Greek word as breeze or breath. It is very interesting to note here that the breath or air is considered by many healers, therapists and energy experts as the main factor or source for energy, human energy! Huna of Hawaii, chi kong of China and Yoga of India, as well as other techniques, all put a lot of emphasis on breathing patterns for generating and using energy. Dr. Bandler even claims that to model a genius, we have to model his / her breathing pattern.

The human aura as we know it now, consist of 7 layers of energy, each layer has its own color and its own frequency. It is interesting to know that each layer is related to each of the 7 chakras, and each layer color is related to each of the 7 colors of the rainbow!

The aura would look like a field of light, a cloud of light surrounding the person, and this light emits out this body about 2-3 feet, on average, on all sides. The thickness of this cloud of light can be between 2 inches – 3 feet, depending on how healthy that that aura. People with negative or ill aura can have 2 inches aura while healthy persons can enjoy 2-3 feet and more.

We have aura all the time: we walk with it, we sleep with it and we simply live with or by it. We now know that the aura can be influenced by many factors such as: our emotions, physical activity, mental activity and also by sound vibrations. Since it is a form of electromagnetic energy, that means it is also vulnerable to other electromagnetic sources, whether from humans or non-humans. Aura is therefore, a reflection of the electromagnetic picture of a person, showing what the person is actually is. Some experts note that the aura is also the spiritual reflection of a person, showing the nature of his / her personality.

The aura is in short, your hidden self. It is a reflection of your personality, identity and body. This is why there are no two auras alike. In this sense, they are like your fingerprints.

A healthy person has a larger aura, meaning its thickness is more than one foot, and has brighter colors. A healthy aura can act like a shield against negative auras and negative energies. Positive aura is important for attracting other positive energies in our body. Therefore, aura is sometimes called the “psychic” or “magnetic atmosphere”.

The aura of the person is never stable because it is always affected by many influences & factors.

The human aura is both the energy field of the person and in the same time the reflection of energy within the body of that person. It also reflects any disease of that person, long time before the manifestations of its symptoms.

TOP 10 Ways to Get Rid of Bug Bites

As a devout summer camper I have already experienced all kinds of different bug bites starting with mosquitoes and biting flies and ending up with bed bugs and spiders. In all the years I have tried a myriad of different home remedies and of those who have worked best for me I made a TOP 10 list of how to get rid of bug bites:

1. Aspirin mix

Aspirin can be used on more than just a summer headache. Crushing the aspirin and mixing with water to form a paste will coat the bug bites with the anti-inflammatory properties of the aspirin and apply it right into the bug bite. Cover the bite overnight with a band aid and in the morning the bug bite should be reduced and pain free. Try to avoid scratching after you put on the paste. Itching is a sign of healing and it is a normal part of the healing process. You can also snap the aspirin tablets in the middle, moisten them with a little water and rub them over the spots. It worked for me on mosquito and fly bites.

2. Salt water

Salt water is a reliable home remedy for all kind of bug bites. I tried it on bed bug and mosquito bites and it worked very effective.First you have to create a paste of water and tab salt. You can also use garlic, seasoning salt and Epson or kosher salt. I used to take 3-4 Tbsp. of salt and few drops of cold water. Then take a clean cloth, water it with the mixture and apply it on to the affected area. You can also rub the salt directly over the bites or soak it into the mixture. Initially it will cause a strong burning for a few moments but then you will feel a great relief from itchiness and swelling.

3. Aloe Vera

The aloe vera plant works wonder for any kind of insect bites and skin irritation. It is a natural antiseptic and it is working anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and it encourage your body to heal faster.

Just snap off a piece of the stem and cut it to take out the juice. Keep the juice in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes till it gets a cold sense. Now rub the fresh Aloe Vera gel over the affected area and it will shortly reduce the swell, pain and itching. You can reapply as often as needed. If you do not have an aloe vera plant at hand you can also use the gel available at departmental stores. Aloe vera is one of my favorite home remedies, because it is working very fast and it provides a very soothing touch.

4. Banana peels

Peel the banana and apply the inside of the peel into the bump. After 90 seconds remove the peel and wash the area and then apply hand sanitizer. Banana peels can make take away the itch, but it will not accelerate the healing process. I tried it on a mosquito bites and it worked very well for me.

5. Saliva

A common belief is that saliva contained in the mouth has natural disinfectants because it should be beneficial to “lick your wounds”. I tried saliva on mosquito bites and bee stings. In my experience saliva does not heal the infection but it stops the itching very fast. I spread the bites with saliva every time it started to itch (2-3 times). I know it is hard, but it is important to keep the scratching after you put on saliva. It should start working after 3-5 minutes. I often use it when I am camping outside.

6. Baking soda paste

Another option is to make a paste out of baking soda mixed with water. Mix the two ingredients in a ratio 2: 1 so that you get a tick paste. Cover all your bug bites with the paste for about 5 minutes. Wash of the past with cold water.This concept can be used on a larger scale if the person is covered with a lot of bites. Just add some paste to a warm bath. Its working for all kinds of bites and skin irritations.

7. Ice

Cold ice is a good method to control the swelling. Cold temperatures accelerate the spread of anti-inflammatory substances to the affected area and inhibit the swilling.You can take an icepack or put some crashed ice into a clean towel and hold it over the affected area for about 5-10 minutes. This will give you quick relief from the swing as well as itchiness. I always use ice before applying another method. Just ice wont take away the swell and itching.

8. Soap

One of the most affective and easiest ways to get rid of bug bites is to rub the affected area with a dry soap bar. The relief from this method is super-fast and works faster than you can mix up other household remedies. It is recommended to use a high quality organic and mild soap. After covering the bites with soap, clean it with cold water and apply some antiseptic cream. It has not worked for me on bug bites and stings!

9. Toothpaste

A very simple way to get rid of a bug bite is to cover the bite with tooth paste. You have to apply toothpaste right on the bite and spread it around the bite till the toothpaste dries. The paste will start to fall of piece by piece and you will soon feel a great relief. When the bite is gone you can wash the remaining toothpaste.

10. Onion

The last but not the least home remedy of how to get rid of bug bites is onion. Onions contain a powerful healing enzyme that can alleviate the discomfort and promote healing. Rub the juice from a piece of cut onion on your mosquito bite. It will stop itching immediately and if you apply the onion juice two or three times a day the bite will disappear within a few days. I have tried this method many times and I highly recommend it for mosquito bites and stings.

Special TIP for campers!

If you are out camping in the wilderness and do not have access to the household methods there is something for you as well. Mud is the most natural way of everything to get rid of bug bites. If you apply wet mud to the affected area and let it completely dry it will release the pain of the bites. This concept has been used for as long as documented history. Making a mask of mud will also prevent bugs from stinging in the first place.

We all are created with this unique power, which can be used for excellent achievements if it is revealed in the real feeling. Human beings are the only one gifted with this power of intelligence. However, most of us do not value our life and significance of Intuitive abilities which is a very important element of human mind. It is often said that we use only a small part of the complete psychological abilities blessed by nature.

These abilities have treatment propensities, which can be used for psychological and physical well being. The use of the Intuitive healers and the religious seers is seen in the history of humanity. The first use of the phrase psychic was found in the Greek mythology. They have been known to use these hidden abilities for treatment of various types of psychological and physical illnesses, adverse thoughts and worries. The person who has an increased way of psychic abilities is known as a psychic. If you are experiencing any personal problems, ill- health ,adequate finances, deficiency of abilities and abilities, difficulty in remembering etc, then you can contact a physic healer, who will fix the issue with his / her unique abilities.

Some of the customers take time to restore, while some encounter a quick restoration with the support of the healers. Intuitive capabilities have been a subject of excellent discussion since ages. There is a unique division known as Parapsychology, which offers with this additional neurological capability existing in the humans. There has been several studies to confirm its existence, with some achievements and with some downfalls. If you wish to take the help of such a gifted healer, you can look for them on web.

Almost every person in this world has a family that he loves, a family who is enclosed him in his odds, a family that he wants to be with forever. It is very important that a person has a family with what he can share things which will help him come up with any difficulties that come up in life. If he is not supported and things keep revolving in his mind, then it will affect the subconscious mind which will result in difficulties like depression. The subconscious is a working parameter in human body that works continuously even during your sleep hours. It is not easy to live up to every person's expectations and manage to live a happy life. When expectations are not reached, there are people who get depressed by such situations and can not handle failures.

Thoughts On The Law of Attraction and Energy Healing

Hi everyone! I have quite a few things on my “to do” list re: running my Energy Healing business. And yet today, I took almost the entire day to declutter my healing room. This is a process I am going through through the entire house: I have been through the downstairs, lounge, kitchen and bathroom, and have now done the healing room – only my bedroom to go.

And I was thinking about how this fits into the Law of Attraction process as another step along the way.

My aim is to look at everything I own and subject it to two tests: “do I need it?” and “do I love it?” Even though I had been living in one room in a Buddhist community for five years up until last Autumn, I found lots of stuff that I either needed or loved. I have to say I find it quite hard to do this: who knows whatever I will need that pair of curtains that are “clogging” up my cupboard in the future, and, although I never listen to cassette tapes, it's really hard to throw things away that represent a certain “era” of my life …

So, what I've been doing is going through each room again and again, and becoming more boring about what I throw out as each time goes on. I've been through my clothes maybe 3 times now … and have finally managed to give away certain things that I have not worn for several years, but somehow, in my mind, would wear again one day …

The other thing I did today was clean the healing room thoroughly. And air it. And sitting in it now this evening, it feels much clearer and brighter in here. And that I want to be giving healings in the room, and want to be sitting at the computer answering emails, and writing my blog etc.

As I was working today, I was also thinking about the reflection of the inner and outer. I have done a lot of work over the last few years on my inner world: with the self-healing at the School of Energy Healing, and the steps I have taken to purify my diet – culminating in me eating raw food for the last couple of years.

It's my experience that as I detoxify internally, I also need to detoxify my external environment. Put another way, it has felt that I really needed to do some decluttering work in my home to be able to maintain the purity of my diet. The inner mirrors the outer and both affect each other.

And this leads back to the Law of Attraction. In order to attract the new things into my life which I really want, I need to let go of the old. It also seems to me to make sense that I need to have order in the outside world ie my possessions, and living space, to give the message to the universe that I can look after what I already have, so there is space for more of what I want to come in.

So, for me, this space clearing is an integral part of the Law of Attraction. Ultimately, the decluttering or space clearing heightens the vibration, which makes it more possible to attract in what I would like next. So, in the end, a very good use of one working day!

Hidden Benefits Of Healing

Hello again! I was just thinking about my life at the moment, and the ways that having regular healings over the last few years has changed it in ways that would not be generally regarded as to do with health and healing.

I would say they are more to do with quality of life, wholeness and confidence. This week, I have been involved with two evening events that have involved me singing or chanting. And I love doing it – although I feel nervous, it is what I call a healthy, excited nervousness, which comes from wanting to do my best – not the debilitating gut wrenching anxiety that comes about when you're really sure you can manage what you're going to be doing …

So, I was reflecting on how this came about. I have always loved singing – but used to limit to when I was on my own, or maybe sometimes with a trusted friend – but it would always be with a lot of nervousness and lackureness.

I believe two main things have changed through the energy healing and EFT sessions I have had over the last few years. Firstly, I believe that some of the healings have helped me to “clear” my throat chakra. By that I mean, that my throat chakra had been “blocked” by certain events in my childhood, but also by events from past lives. So, through past life regression and inner child healing, being able to express what I could not express then, I have cured those barriers in my throat chakra, with the result that my voice has become clear and actually quite powerful.

The other aspect is that I believe that energy healing has had a strong effect on my self-confidence. I remember in the past almost being intimidated by being in front of a group of people, almost as though they were somehow “taking” my energy. Now, by all the energetic work I have done, it almost feels as though I gain energy from looking at the people I am talking to or singing to – even having eye contact with people!

I believe this is one of the “hidden” benefits of working with energy healing and EFT (emotional freedom technique). Whilst you may come for a session for headaches, energy healing and EFT work holistically – that is they address all aspects of you. And in the end, this is why I personally feel I have gained so much more than “just” recovery from chronic illness; I have found a more balanced, whole way of being in the world and of expressing who I am.
