“In the healthy condition of man, the spiritual vital force, the dynamis that animates the material body, rules with unbounded sway and retains all the parts of the organism in admirable, harmonious, vital operation, as regards both sensations and functions, so that our indwelling, reason-gifted mind can freely employ this living, healthy instrument for the higher purpose of our existence” Samuel Hahnemann, 1833
In living beings, energy flows not only from physical nourishment we give it, but through the body in pathways known as meridians and in energy centres called Chakras. Chi (Qi or Ki) is the energy of life itself, a balance of Yin and Yang, positive and negative, electromagnetic energy which flows through everything in creation. In homeopathy we call this the Vital Force. Clean food and water, exercise, nutrients and a healthy mind are all vital for us to live a fabulous life. But more importantly, we all need to look at our spirituality.
With the church being discredited hundreds of years ago, many of us have thrown ourselves into a more material world, driven by the need to feel safe, replacing a spiritual belief system with a more monetary belief system – “if I had more money I would be happy” kinda of thing. But is this new belief system any better? Is this something that has been thrust upon us, just like the corrupt church many centuries ago?
I am not disputing the fact that money gives you more control over your life and a sense of security but something is missing on a deeper level. Does wealth and power truly make us happy? The rise of mental health issues in recent years has been astronomical, even affecting our beautiful children. But what if it wasn’t us the people who were at fault, but the system?
It appears our basic essentials have been compromised during the last hundred years. We have chemicals and pesticides in our food, artificial dead foods, fluoride in our water, environmental toxins in the sky, affecting the air we breathe, toxic medications and chemical based skin products and deodorants. Maybe it’s time we took the responsibility back to nurture ourselves, clean up our act so that the world can clean up hers x
During lockdown I revisited my spirituality. I have been so busy building up my business, I got caught up in just surviving and not thriving. This system we live in is hard. My spirituality has always been there but it got pushed to the back of importance. I have taken this time during lockdown to complete all those courses I’ve been promising myself. I’ve read those articles and books that have been sat in a big pile of ‘to do’ things. I have been introduced to some incredibly inspiring people and as a result I have discovered a whole new world. I feel at peace, full of love and optimistic about the future. And it’s mostly to do with this little beauty!
There’s this magical gland in our brains called the Pineal Gland – and it’s no bigger than the size of a bean! It has more power in there than I could ever have imagined – so I’d really like to share with you what I have discovered.
Within our bodies we have 7 Chakras, energy zones and each one sits over an endochrine system. The 6th Chakra, our third eye because it’s about ‘seeing’ is where our Pineal Gland is based.
This centre is about intuition: our ability to visualise, to imagine, to be clairvoyant (meaning clear seeing), and to hold a greater vision for our lives. Have you ever had a moment where you clearly could see how every detail of a project could easily fall into place? Ever had the experience of thinking of someone, and then they called you? Did you ever just KNOW something was going to happen and then it did? Has it happened that the most amazing idea popped into your head, seemingly out of nowhere? Well that’s all down to the Pineal Gland.
Your Pineal Gland produces melatonin and serotonin. Melatonin is the hormone that regulates the body’s circadian rhythm. It plays a role in puberty and the biological ageing process. Melatonin is produced during the absence of light – in the winter and at night while we sleep. It reaches its peak around 2-3am – hence the importance of a good nights’s sleep. Many people who do shift work and those who suffer with insomnia will be low on melatonin. Problems associated with low melatonin are influenza, cancer, altzeimers, auto-immune illnesses, hypothyroidism, diabetes, digestive and kidney problems. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter and if not functioning correctly can affect our mood.
The Egyptians connected spiritual awareness to the pineal gland and called it the ‘Seat of the Soul’ = intuition, discernment, psychic awareness and it expands our mind’s capacity.
But what happens if our system becomes toxic? The pineal gland uses two thirds more blood supply than any other gland so it is susceptible to holding heavy metals, environmental toxins (pesticides, fluoride, metals from vaccines and poor food, radiation poisoning from cell phones and microwave ovens and EMR. This causes your pineal gland to ‘calcify’.
No sense of direction
Bored with your job, fearful to move on
Rooted in the world
Feel like your going around and around in circles
Spacey, not grounded
A sense of splitting off – Altzeimers, Dementia, Autism, Parkinsons, Schizophrenia?
Depression and Dissatisfied
Inability to connect and trust the universe
Absence of courage and faith in oneself
Unable to think or reason beyond our own physical needs
Resistance against change which involves growth and development
Can you see how our toxic world could be heavily affecting the health of our bodies but especially our emotions and thought processes?
Self knowledge – insight, awareness
Acceptance of oneself
Blissful, a sense of great oneness with everything
Peaceful and contented
Connection with others and nature
Having read the positives of a healthy Pineal Gland, I set about discovering how we might improve and decalcify this little beauty. Even if we live a very healthy life, there is no escaping all of the toxins in our environments.
In homeopathy, we work with remedies called Sarcodes. These are used to rebuild tissue when organ structures are in a dis-eased state. Damage can result in malfunctioning of an organic field. It can take a while to see results due to correct rebuilding at a cellular level and younger patients respond quicker. In older patients, certain remedies can be used to stimulate cleansing and also to stabilise and reduce the risk of a continuing problem.
There are also many many other natural remedies to help with your health in general
Please contact me directly if you would like more information regarding homeopathy.
The mental health benefits of meditation include better focus and concentration, improved self-awareness and self-esteem, lower levels of stress and anxiety, and fostering kindness. Meditation also has benefits for your physical health.
I also came across a story published in the American Journal of Cardiology that confirmed that meditation was also beneficial for our physical health as well as our mental and emotional well-being. The ancient medical practices have understood this forever but it’s good to see modern medicine catching up.
During the trials, Meditating was associated with a 35% lower risk of high cholesterol, a 14% lower risk of high blood pressure, a 30% lower risk of diabetes, 24% lower risk of stroke and a whopping 49% lower risk of coronary artery disease – those are incredible figures!!
Many Alternative health therapists and practitioners like myself and religions have promoted the art of meditations for centuries. There were 61,000 participants in this trial and Dr Krittanawong – fabulous name – confirmed he would be doing more trials.
Meditation is something that I have really embraced these past few months. I have tried so many times to practice it but the most ridiculous thoughts would just pop into my head! I was recommended the facebook page below – and have not looked back.
“The Global Awakening is a movement to unite humanity with the purpose of creating a peaceful and sustainable world. Our mission is to have one million people meditating together at the same time every week to raise the collective consciousness”.
It has been scientifically proven that groups of people meditating or praying collectively can have a very positive effect on the vibration of the Earth. Standing together in love and gratitude, we are very powerful x
Meditation has helped me enormously – on all levels – I have never felt so peaceful. I have also discovered that when we continually live in fear and anxiety, these negative emotions are the lowest vibrations on the planet. The most interesting thing I have discovered is the opposite of fear is love. When you switch your thought process from your brain into your heart space, something incredible happens. The less stressed we are the healthier we are so I highly recommend meditating. Oh and practice gratitude everyday – it’s up there with love on the vibrational scale x
There are also some interesting meditation on YouTube specifically for decalcifying your pineal. Go take a look
Eat organic – I know this isn’t always possible, but try to cook from scratch as often as you can. Processed foods are full of additives.
Pure filtered water – plenty of it
Take plenty of sunshine – Vitamin D is absorbed and best through the pupils. Don’t stare at the sun of course, but try to spend around 20-30 minutes a day outdoor with no shades on
Lemon and citric acid – a great way to start the day – juice of half a lemon in boiled water
Consider an iodine supplement
Borax Supplement – removes fluoride, supports strong bones and muscles. healthy testosterone levels and cognition
always consult your GP or medical practitioner before taking supplements
Foods to consider adding to your diet
Until we take back the responsibility for our mental and emotional health as well as our physical well-being, we will continue to get caught up in a system that at times appears to place profit before people.
I do hope you have enjoyed reading this blog. We are living in very strange times with too many people living in fear and anxiety. We are at a time where we all need to unite and support, love and care for one another.
Together we could all go on an incredible spiritual journey – I think our ancestors, the ancient tribes and indigenous people probably knew a thing or two about life balance. It’s time for humanity to learn from those wise, selfless practices that have been forgotten by so many. How wonderful would it be to live in a world fed with love x
