CHAPTER 8 COMPLIMENTARY HEALING RESOURCES
Contrary to the common allopathic approach, in healing and health, a one size fits all solution is most often not the case. We are all as unique as our fingerprints and we all ,at some time in our lives, need of a little help from our friends. In this same approach Biomagnetism and its effects can be optimized and enhanced if an individual is plateauing in their convalescence . The methods discussed in this chapter will briefly outline some tools that can improve or promote further healing which can be used in addition to biomagnetism. Not every modality will suit the individual but this chapter helps to explain the concepts of why and how it works with biomagnetism and where to look to research if it is something that is right for you.
As with all themes discussed in this book using applied kinesiology is always advised to see if a modality will best suit the situation and the individual at any given moment. Having a clearly set intention, a connection to source and a specific question with a yes or no answer, is key for using our intuitive gifts. Muscle testing for a modality and usage or dose for parameters is always advised for all methods always. It truly is a wonderful tool to have to guide you on your road to health improvements. Once you get it it will be like riding a bike – you never forget how to. It is quite amazing.
In the realm of vibrational modalities there are so many truly incredible and supportive tools one can use that come from nature for healing. We, being organic beings from the soil (soul) and of the salt (plasma), find we resonate best with using natures remedies in a slow and steady manner. We do not develop chronic illnesses over night and we have to have that same understanding as we approach healing those conditions. There are rarely quick fixes, pills or potions. If someone claims this ,it is wise to take caution. Slow and steady is always the best. Less is more. As above so below. We can anticipate the duration of our healing upward would correspond directly with our cascade to illness downward. In illness there is always health and we must realize and tap into this vibration within ourselves to ignite and catalyze further positive healing. No matter what level our healing needs to be experienced on, spiritual, mental or physical , we are a whole being and should treat our healing and experiences as such. The stars shine brightest in the darkness. No matter if you are using biomagnetism therapy for a pulled tendon in your shoulder or to promote self healing of a long battled chronic illness there is ALWAYS more room for more health, always. Even if they are only baby steps. When the body is treated as a perfect machine of health, given the right conditions, the body will always find homeostasis and thus find a will and a way to better health. The goal is always to allow the body to remember what balance is so that eventually it runs on its own like a fine tuned race car on auto pilot. Let us explore some of the tools for optimization.
1. Breath work
The saying “30 days without food, 3 days without water and 3 minutes without air “, puts our survival priorities in order of importance. Without proper oxygenation of our plasma our bodies are unable to complete the NADH conversion to create energy and sustain life. We often overlook the significant importance of the air we take in. It is an automatic process that we often don’t think about unless we are ill with a lung infection or having a panic attack. But yogis say that the first body to get sick is the Pranic Body- the eighth etheric light body, the breath body. Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that wind at the neck is the first point of entry for illness. Just noticing the difference between the long and relaxed deep belly breath of a baby compared to the short shallow upper chest breaths of a stressed out person says it all. If we can take one thing away from Wim Hof and Yogananda we can understand that prana is the most under valued measurement of health and vitality as such should be given far more attention.
Try this experiment, every two and a half hours you switch which nostril you are breathing in and out of. Right nostril is the Yang or the Pingala channel which represents active, alert, awake and stimulated energetic status. ( similar to the red magnet) . If it is your left it is the opposite, yin, cooling, relaxed, tired, feminine, Ida channel ( similar to black magnet properties and the left side of the body-moon). The most simple and effective pranayama to teach our children is called Nadi Shodna ( alternate nostril breathing). To change the mental state from one to the other simply close the nostril of the side you would like to change – so want to become awake? Plug the left. Want to fall asleep? Plug the right. Long deep belly breathing for three minutes with that nostril closed. Like magic your dominant nostril will shift and so will your entire system. There are many ways we can play with the pranic energy. The Mahabandha ( the great lock) combined with the one minute breath is said to cure ALL disease if mastered. Nauli kriya- the rolling of the belly combined with breath is also deeply healing. The main focus on all breathing is to breath into the belly, navel always moves first on the inhale, then the ribs then the clavicle, exhale is the reverse. Mantra is also helpful when the mind wanders. Singing is also beneficial for breathing. Remember that the lungs are not only the site for gas exchange, but also for detoxification. The deeper the breath the greater the exchange of molecules, gravity makes the blood in the lower lungs greater in volume, if we are breathing shallowly then we are not getting to the area that needs to detox. It is such an under valued and simple solution to better health. Try set a reminder each hour perhaps to do long deep breathing for three minutes. Exercise. Sing. Move. Prana is more important than we realize. For more exercises the book Prana, Pranee, Pranayam by Yogi Bhajan has many great exercises. Wim Hof has a free app. The science is there it is up to us to do the work to enhance our healing abilities naturally and effectively with beauty and simplicity just as nature intended.
