We have all had the problem of being awake during the night when we think we should be asleep. Remember that we are all different and our sleep needs are different too. Some sleep a good night of 9 hours while others say 5 or 6 hours is good.  

There are a few things you can do to get to sleep. There have been many articles written about turning off your electronics, not eating or eating a certain thing before bedtime, taking time to wind down, opening a window or taking a lavender Epsom salt bath. These are all great for falling asleep but what can you do if you tend to wake up in the middle of the night?  

HeartLoopUPHere’s the scenario:  I’m awake again and it’s 3 am. I have to get up for work in 3 hours, my brain is in overdrive and I am concerned I will be tired in the morning. 

OK, #1. Do you meditate? If you do, you’re in luck. Take the Yoga Corpse pose as you lay on your bed. Just lay flat, face up, legs comfortably apart, arms 8-10″ opened at your sides. If you are a meditator, do your favorite meditation practice. Take the focus off of falling asleep and just BE.

I’m not a meditator so what can I do to help myself. First things first,  you are awake and you believe you should be asleep.  There is a need for a shift in focus, so here is

#2.  Instead of fussing about wanting to go back to sleep, we are going to shift our focus to something pleasurable. It could be a happy moment in your life or a place that you love and imagine you are there. The monkey mind may chatter on but you deliberately keep coming back to your happy place. This takes practice but it’s worth it.

#3.  Take into consideration that you are awake for a reason.  We all have an Inner-Self that loves us unconditionally and supports us in every way. When we find ourselves awake in the wee hours of the morning it is often because something is in us that needs to be addressed, explored, released, allowed or resolved. The middle of the night is not such a great time for logical analysis, it is time more wisely used for intuitive receiving. All this means is that you acknowledge that you have 2 sides of your brain and that the quiet hours of the very early morning are excellent for getting in touch with your Inner-Knower and moving into a receptive state of being. This brings us to: 

#4. Because it is so quiet and still, you can access a very deep piece of yourself if you allow it to arise. Breathe deeply from your belly. Drink some water. Get out your journal and begin writing what you are feeling. Pause and thank yourself for taking the time to listen to your inner voice, for allowing it a place to express itself. Lay back down when you feel complete and tell yourself that you will arise refreshed and ready for the new day because you have taken the time to BE with yourself, to Listen to yourself, to express yourself.

#5.  Now is a great time to go through your Gratitude list. What are you grateful for? List these in your mind. I always begin with being grateful for the bed I lay upon, the pillow I rest my head on and on and on from there. Get absorbed in the richness of your life, focusing on ALL that brings you comfort, pleasure and sustenance. When you’re done, just tell yourself that you will arise refreshed and that you trust yourself.

#6.  Use your imagination.  Think of the rainbow. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet and White. Imagine that you are resting in a bubble of light. As you breathe you will begin by filling your bubble with red light, feel it seeping into your skin as your entire being, inside and out absorbs the life giving energies of the red vibration. Breathe it in until you are completely red. Thank the red and move on to orange. Repeat the visualization with each color all the way up the rainbow from the base of your spine to the top of your head, ending as a completely full, White bubble of Light. Say thank you to yourself and your inner guidance and remember you are energizing and feeding yourself while you are resting and will be fine in the morning.

There are many things we can do with this time other that tossing and turning. It is about tuning in to ourselves. When you have completed one of the options above, take a few deep breathes and tell you body that it’s OK not to be sleeping, that you are resting and will have plenty of vitality for tomorrow. Remember, you are in Command of your body. Tell it what you want to feel, begin expecting this to be so. Be a good receiver and don’t give up. Finding a new relationship with yourself in the middle of the night can be a God sent.

feelingsUPFeelings, we all have them.  

It’s not that you have feelings, it’s what you do with them that counts.  We all know that ‘good’ feelings are desirable.  Who doesn’t want to feel joy, love, appreciation to name a few?  It’s those ‘bad’ feelings that we tend to want to avoid.  Self-doubt, anger, hatred, frustration are not usually our favored states.

Here’s what happens when we don’t FEEL our emotions.  The mind goes into overdrive, either looking for a solution or a way out.  The body goes into a state of unrelenting stress and tension. The Spirit steps back, retracts from the form, as the confusion makes the inner voice less likely to be felt and heard. Have you ever heard the phrase,’ I was beside myself ‘?  Exactly !, your essence is out of sync and off center from your form. But most importantly the emotional body goes into a state of over-expression or constipation.

Let’s explore these states.  Over-expression can be observed as acting out, yelling, passive aggressive or depressive episodes. All kinds of wild, over active responses can include over eating, over spending, over working, over sleeping and many addictive behaviors.  Yes, we need to express our emotions and the challenge is to express them in healthy ways and not to point them at anyone.

Let’s talk about emotional constipation.  This can be experienced as actual constipation, as in not wanting to ‘let go’ or it can be expressed as compartmentalization of the energy.  When we compartmentalize our feelings we are really stuffing them.  But where do they go?  Emotions that are unexpressed and consistently suppressed go deep, deep within our subconscious and also deep within our bodies.  Who has not had aches and pains?  These are your trapped, unexpressed feelings.  Yes, still there waiting to be acknowledged and released. With no other way to get our attention, the body begins to hurt. Sometimes the unexpressed and unacknowledged feelings will attract accidents and unpleasant experiences into our lives.

What is the solution?  One very easy way to rearrange this pattern is to begin allowing ourselves to feel. Here we go, something happens that hurts you, upsets you.  We do not live in a culture that encourages us to express emotions so we must create an accepting environment to allow feelings to emerge and be felt. I find the bathroom a good place for this but it could be sitting on the edge of your bed, first thing or last thing of the day.

Exercise:  Bring your attention to your heart, say a silent thank you to yourself for doing the best that you can. ALLOW a tiny spark of self acceptance to ignite within you.  It doesn’t matter how good or bad you think you are, nothing matters at this moment other than to foster self-compassion.  Up from somewhere deep within will come that feeling, the one you never wanted to feel again.  As it appears, think of yourself as a vessel, the feeling rises up and out of  you. UP and OUT. It is painful, in every way, you want to suppress it and NOT go there.  FEEL for 30 seconds beyond this point……………….  There ! You are done for today.  Not so horrible as you thought.  You are still here, still breathing, nothing has changed ………………..only now you are one ounce lighter, maybe two.

YOU ARE A SUCCESS ! With each repetition of this exercise you will find that THIS moment CAN be unburdened.  We, each as individuals, are the only one who can unload the wagon.  Bit by bit, releasing the pressure and returning to the natural state of dynamic equilibrium that we are intended to be.

If you believe you are ready to drop a few pounds of emotional weight and would like some assistance please let me know. Don’t be afraid, between the Music, the Dodecahedron, the Reiki and the support of ALL of the Beings of LIGHT on the Inner-Planes that love and support you, you will be released from your suffering.

Healing, Trust and the Power of THREE

From the Deck of I AM by Deb Barrett

Say ‘I AM HEALED’ outloud 3 x’s everyday, the body cannot resist our proclamation and complys,

HEALING is an interesting subject. Anyone who is pained, sick, stuck, challenged, grieving or any other human condition of suffering is usually in a place of wanting to BE HEALED. Most think, “if I could only GET RID of this, I will be fine”.  

Firstly, we NEVER get rid of anything. Don’t worry, it is when we change the FREQUENCY of it, that we see the shift and the condition seems to go away.

What has shifted, what has changed?  It is our perception of the issue / ailment that has shifted and when this happens the body follows by returning to it’s natural state of health and balance.

So how long did it take you to find yourself within your current constraints?  A week, a day, a year or possibly a lifetime?

When I work with people who would like to FEEL differently, it is important to recognize their individual mental constraints around their situation.  To get to a place of personal power around our current circumstances we need TRUST. Trust in the process, in this case Vibro-Acoustics and Reiki and certainly a level of trust in me, your facilitator.

We talk and get to know each other. We discuss what is pertinent to you in relation to your issue. With this awareness comes an awakening and a reinstating of your personal power. YOUR power is what is important here. ALL healing is SELF Healing! Yes, it is lovely to have someone knowledgeable to hold the door OPEN for you, but it is you that will walk through that door.

What has the Power of THREE got to do with it? Three tends to be a magical number, in the sense that it adds a third leg, or stabilizing factor to the 2. Think of a triangle as opposed to 2 dots connected by a line. 

Ultimately 3 sessions are necessary to move forward to a new place of stability in relation to your situation.

  1. The first session is about REALIGNING with your Personal POWER and Divine Spark.
  2. The second session is about INTEGRATION of the new energy of harmony within.
  3. The third session is the STABILIZING factor, the coming together of all that you have learned and experienced both from our discussions and from your time within the womb of sound, the healing temple, the DreamWeaver.  

Believe me, I would love to tell you that “in one session, you will be healed”, the fact is, it is determined by you and your belief system. If you truly believe that is all it takes, then that will be your reality. However, your trust, your commitment and your final outcome generally are based in repetition of a new way of being. Your self discovery process is uniquely your own.  

THREE seems to be the magic number here. A series of 3 sessions booked closely together, approximately 10 days apart, has a resounding effect within the body. The body begins to remember what it is to be calm, feel safe. You begin to know your true nature and TRUST your inner knowing. From here it is all down hill in a very good way.  

After 3 sessions you will discover that you have a rapport with not only me but more importantly with the Sound Healing environment.  When you enter now, your body has a memory of previous mind expanding, body relaxing, Spirit releasing experience and you FLY home easily and quickly. The result is a deep sense of peace and a knowing that all is well in your world and you do not need to fix anything for your life to be a gift.  

Repeat after me, OUT LOUD,  I AM Healed, I AM Healed, I AM HEALED !

Come to Session Options to book your 3 session package. blessings  deb

What Produces the Healing Power of Sound?

We can feel it when we turn on the radio and our favorite song happens to be playing, or when we sit quietly and listen to the rain. There is a palpable peace when we are absorbed in quiet and a different kind of rejuvenation when we hear the wind in the trees. There is no doubt that sound has subtle, but profound effects on our body, minds and spirits. How exactly does sound work, though, to heal us?

Just Like an Orchestra, You Can Tune Your Body

Have you ever listened to an orchestra prepare to play an invigorating symphony? There is a cacophony first with the woodwinds and strings, horns, and timpani making quite a ruckus, but when they tune their instruments precisely, the sound that washes over you like a wave, can bring peace and excitement that surpasses some of the most invigorating practices on earth – like sky diving, or dropping 45 feet into a hidden cave.

Sound healing session
Sound is not unorganized chaos. It is a dynamic but ordered pattern. – Dr. Hans Jenny

The body works in much the same way. If a single instrument (organ, or organ system) is playing its own tune, and not in harmony with the rest of the body, disease is more likely to happen. As sound therapist, Dr. John Beaulieu, ND, PhD explains:

The fundamental principle of Energy Medicine is that an underlying energy field generates physical, emotional, and mental behaviors or symptoms. If we change the energy field, the physical, emotional, and mental behaviors will also change.

Cymatics

One of the most effective ways to change the energy field is through a science named cymatics. Though he was not the first to discover that sound could heal, Dr. Hans Jenny, M.D. of Basel Switzerland put together some fascinating experiments where we could literally ‘see’ how sound works.
Jenny created ‘cymatics’ when he put sand, fluid or some other powder on a metal plate that was attached to an oscillator. An oscillator is essentially a vibrator, but his oscillator was controlled by a generator that was able to produce many thousands of types of frequencies. Some of these can be found in nature, and others are created by man.

Cymatics pattern
Powder on a metal plate, attached to an oscillator

By changing the frequencies on the oscillator, Jenny found that sand, or water or whatever substance he was using to create a visible medium for his sound, would morph into some very interesting shapes. These shapes mimicked the properties of divine geometry, and the higher the frequency, the more complex the shapes would appear to be. He wrote:

Since the various aspects of these phenomena are due to vibration, we are confronted with a spectrum which reveals a patterned, figurative formation at one pole and kinetic-dynamic processes at the other, the whole being generated and sustained by its essential periodicity.

What Jenny was observing was really a simple way of observing matter come to life. Since we now understand, through the emerging field of quantum physics, that patterns emerge via waves of energy, the plates were showing the scientist a similar phenomenon. In ancient Sumerian society, this was a known fact. This is why practices like mantra were held in high esteem. The seed syllable, OM, for example, causes a certain frequency to imprint upon the ‘matter’ around it, and thus changes the energetic field.

Monastery of Christ In The Desert
Abbot Philip Lawrence from Monastery of Christ In The Desert

“The kind of singing that we do calms the spirit and helps us live in peace with our world and with one another,” says Abbot Philip Lawrence, a scholar of chant who also leads the Monastery of Christ In The Desert – home to an American order of Benedictine monks from Abiquiu, New Mexico. “Chanting has some strange effect on the brain waves according to various studies,” continues Abbot Philip, but this effect is certainly not the Monks of the Desert’s objective; rather their goal, and that of Gregorian chant, notes Abbot Philip, is “to focus on the words rather than the challenge of voice production or sight reading. It is always our hope that our singing will bring others to peace, inner tranquility and an appreciation of beauty. These values can help create a world in which peace and tranquility prevail.”

Since all matter is just different frequencies of the collapsed wave, or quantum field, then we have the ability to create a different reality with sound.

Sound and the Golden Number

The possibility for great healing can be seen in the science of sound. The picture of the Sri Yantra, a mandala created by sound, and said to be imagined by a yogi in deep meditation, is a representation of one of the oldest sounds in the world. Some call it a manifestation of divine sound. The triangles that appear in the Sri Yantra are perfectly integrated based on the divine number, Pi, which is also the basis for the golden mean, Phi. The Greek philosopher, Pythagorus understood sound and divein geometry, and it was written about by Euclid in “Elements” around 300 B.C., by Luca Pacioli, a contemporary of Leonardo Da Vinci, in “De Divina Proportione” in 1509, by Johannes Kepler around 1600. Many others knew of this ‘cosmic’ mathematics, and its power to heal throughout the ages.

The harmonics of sound work to create order out of chaos

The harmonics of sound work to create order out of chaos. Disease, you might say, is a form of chaos in the body. According to Dr. Robert Friedman, the connection between the Golden Ratio and ideal health was a no-brainer. During his medial residency in the 1980s, Dr. Friedman began observing the Golden Ratio throughout the human body—on the anatomical, physiological, and molecular levels. “The deeper I looked,” said Friedman, “the more deeply I discovered this incredible and ubiquitous Code to be embedded throughout the structure and function of the body…it only followed that the more one could harmonize with this grand principle, the more efficient and effortless life could be.”

Healing Frequencies

What is illness?

Emotional issues that are unresolved block the healing vibrations or cause the disease state to return.
– R Gordon

Over millennia, those who have studied the science of sound, have come to understand that certain frequencies are very healing for the human body. Overall, however, you are trying to create resonance – “When two systems are oscillating at different frequencies, there is an impelling force called resonance that causes the two to transfer energy from one to another. When two similarly tuned systems vibrate at different frequencies, there is another aspect of this energy transfer called entrainment, which causes them to line up and to vibrate at the same frequency.” (Richard Gordon)

Crystal bowls
Certain frequencies are very healing for the human body

When we ‘entrain’ with healing frequencies, our bodies and minds vibrate in harmony. These include:

285 Hz – Signals cells and tissues to heal. Leaves the body feeling rejuvenated.
396 Hz – Liberates guilt and fear to make way for higher vibrating emotions.
417 Hz – Allows the ‘undoing’ of challenging situations.
528 Hz – Said to heal DNA, repair cells, and awaken consciousness
639 Hz – This is the vibration associated to the heart. It allows feelings of love for self and ‘other’ until there is no longer a distinction. To balance relationships, listen to this frequency.
741 Hz – Said to clean the cells and heal them from exposure to electromagnetic radiation. Helps shift someone into empowerment so they can create the reality they wish to see.
852 Hz – Awakens intuition.
963 Hz – Activates the pineal gland, and aligns the body to its perfect, original state. Of course, there are further frequencies, many of which that are not even within the human range of hearing, but they are healing nonetheless. George Lakhovsky, a Russian engineer understood the power of sound as well. He understood that certain frequencies would make a living being grow stronger. I hope you are able to find healing in the frequencies I’ve described, and that this introduction to why sound heals will spur you to learn more.

At the root of all power and motion, there is music and rhythm, the play of patterned frequencies against the matrix of time. We know that every particle in the physical universe takes its characteristics from the pitch and pattern and overtones of its particular frequencies, its singing. Before we make music, music makes us.
– Joachim-Ernst Berendt, The World is Sound

We will be using COLORED PENCILS to create our ‘Personal HEALING MANDALA’. The image you create will be based on Sacred Geometry and your comfort with color. Yours to take home and hang in a prominent space in your world.  This image will radiate for you your highest and best!

In spite of the whirlwind of life swirling about WE WILL CREATE A FOCUSED IMAGE, an expression of our personal inner knowing of harmony and balance.  

No previous art knowledge needed, Deb will guide you through the process of connecting with your personal Artist/Healer within, this expression will flow out of you. Especially great for those who ‘can’t draw’.

If you would like to work with your own colored pencils please bring them.  Please bring water to drink as well.  When we work with the electrical energies of our Higher Selves our vessel/body needs more water to keep the battery stable.

Note from Deb:  Coloring is one of my specialties, it has saved my life, literally at least 5 times and has always soothed me since being a child.  Somehow Coloring reconnects us to our very center, a place we came from and lived in as a child.  It is a wise time to reconnect to this state.

If you feel drawn to this type of expression please join us.  Fill out the form below to hold your spot. This will be a small group so let me know, blessings deb
