Calming the Mind; the Root of Disease
The mind in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is commonly referred to as the shen.
In Chinese medicine, the shen is interpreted as the spirit or consciousness. The shen lives in the heart organ system and is one of the vital substances of the body. The shen is said to preside over the activities that take place in the spiritual and mental planes.
Ultimately, we want to have a balanced shen. This means we may have emotional responses to external stimuli or internally generated thoughts, or feelings. Normally, we can control and recover from these situations without much incident. Somebody who has a disturbed shen, would not know how or be able to deal with a similar situation and may act out irrationally while drawing attention to themselves. An example would be when a person with a balanced shen becomes angry or cries for some reason. They tend to feel relief after the emotion has passed. While somebody with a disturbed shen may continue the irrational behavior for quite some time without ever feeling that relief and they might need intervention to return to a somewhat balanced state.
Maintaining a healthy shen also means that we maintain a healthy body. A strong shen is fundamental to good health. When the shen is weak, the body will eventually fail. To keep the shen healthy we should focus on maintaining a positive mindset, getting enough rest, seeking peace, connecting with nature, meditating and showing compassion. This means we ultimately need to avoid overwork, chronic stress, an erratic daily schedule, lack of sleep and volatile emotions such as anger, hatred and resentment. This may seem pretty logical but based on the amount of shen disturbance/mental illness in the world, it is clear we have lost our way to some degree.
The good news is the cumulative shen of the planet can be changed over time and we can all have a hand in making that change.
Definition of Stress
The definition of stress is a physical, chemical or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension. Stress can come from external physical trauma, overloading, repetitive strain, poor posture, contracted and inflexible muscles, lack of physical exertion, inflammation from poor diet, nutritional deficiencies, infections from bacteria, viruses, yeast, or fungi. There is also the mental aspect of overthinking, worry, anger, sadness, fear, negative outlook, and emotional imbalances.
Stress and the Mind-Shen can be managed by harmonizing the Chakra-energy centers. There are ways you can accomplish this yourself. But first, let’s explain the charkas.
What are Chakras
Chakras are swirling vortexes of psycho-neuro-endocrine (PNE) bio-electric energy located along our anterior and posterior midline. It’s easier to just call these energy centers chakras! The chakras are part of Ayurveda Medicine, from India. Traditional Chinese Medical and Ayurvedic Medical systems have much overlap, and they work together in harmony. The chakras correlate to major acupuncture points along the midline of the body. Both systems help stimulate, move or clear blockages of negative energy.
The chakra energy centers are responsible for carrying or releasing stored memories, emotional or physical trauma.
There are 7 main chakras and 21 minor chakras (if we include the eyes and scapula there are 25). The chakras are the root, sacral, solar, heart, throat, brow, and crown. The minor chakras are bilateral consisting of the feet, hands, elbows, knees, groin-gonads, clavicles, intercostals, ears-jaw, shoulders, navel, and one spleen chakra found only on the left side below the rib cage. Some sources consider the eyes and scapula to be minor chakras as well.
Chakras Regulate Hormones, Glands, Thoughts and Feelings
Each of the main 7 chakras are associated with one of the nine endocrine glands, a group of nerves called a plexus, and a band of connective tissue called fascia. From these, Neuropeptides are released in response to our thoughts and feelings. Thoughts and emotions of anger, joy, worry, grief, or fear have their own identifiable frequencies. That’s how your body knows which neuropeptide to release.
Whether pain or disease stems from an emotional or spiritual disharmony or not, both physical or emotional trauma as well as behavioral or mental habits are stored in our musculature, and connective tissue called fascia, creating tension, blocking circulation, which can lead to pain or disease. Sometimes it’s a direct connection from acute assault to the body or it develops over time.
Restore Balance and Harmony to Your Chakras
Our chakras can become congested, over-stimulated or uncoordinated. Restoring balance to your chakras helps with stress, emotional-wellbeing, the mind-shen, pain and disease.
There are forms of vibrational medicine that harmonize and decongest the chakra-meridian systems. Chakra-Meridian balancing has beneficial effects on the autonomic nervous system and internal Organs (as understood by Chinese Medicine).
Emotional Freedom Technique
Use Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to move stuck Qi-energy and strengthen the charka centers. These are known acupuncture points that effectively release tension, stress, anxiety and pain.
First, rate yourself with how you feel on a scale of 0, no pain to 10, worst possible pain.
Tap each one using the tips of your index, middle and ring fingers together. Tap 10 X or up to 1 minute each. Check in with yourself. Repeat as often as you need.
A Few of my Favorite Calming and Stress Relieving Essential Oils
These oils can be used to harmonize chakra energy centers as well as specific complaints such as joint pain, low energy, or poor nervous system function.
These are only examples of a few oils that support the chakras. More than one oil can provide balancing to one or more chakras. That is why you may find different opinions of which oil to use for a chakra or meridian system. Intention can be powerful when using aromatherapy. If you’re using lavender to balance your throat chakra, and that is your intention it will work. If you place it over your third eye (brow chakra), and your intention is to enhance vision and clarity, then lavender will help because it does those things too.
These oils can be placed over the EFT points, and then gently place your finger over the spot and hold for a minute or two, or until you feel yourself release tension.
Lavender: Throat Chakra. This oil helps on the emotional level of expression, speaking, listening, and being heard. It helps relieve minor pain, itching, and minor burns. Many people love it for its calming, sedative effects enabling a good night’s sleep. It can be used alone or combined with another essential oil. I find that when mixed with Bergamot, the stress reducing effects are heightened.
Bergamot: Heart Chakra. This oil also helps with sleep and is a potent stress reducer. It is also beneficial for muscle cramps, joint pain, skin irritation, and fungus. On the emotional-spiritual level it enhances one’s feeling of self-worth.
Copaiba: Solar Plexus: Supports the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive and respiratory systems. It acts like a powerful antioxidant. Helps calm, soothe, and support the nervous system.
It is beneficial for clear, smooth skin and reduces the appearance of blemishes. The effects are enhanced when combined with black pepper.
Basil: Root Chakra. Basil is wonderful for clear, and healthy skin. It promotes mental alertness and lessens anxious feelings when diffused in the air. It supports the cardiovascular and nervous systems. In Chinese Medicine basil is believed to support the adrenal glands and kidney health.
Black Pepper: Brow Chakra. It provides antioxidant support, promotes healthy circulation, aids digestion, and soothes anxious feelings. It is warming, and soothing when used in massage therapy. This oil should always be diluted with a carrier oil such as coconut or sweet almond oil.
Frankincense: Crown Chakra. When in doubt try frankincense. It can be used whenever you aren’t sure of what oil to choose. It improves with age like a fine wine. I find it works well for many chronic conditions. Therefore, I often include this oil in many oil blends for a variety of conditions.
It supports healthy cellular function, promotes feelings of relaxation, helps with skin issues when applied topically, it supports healthy immune, nervous, and digestive function.
Wild Orange: Sacral Chakra. Acts as a powerful cleanser and purifying agent, supports healthy immune function, and is uplifting to the mood. It is often combined with cinnamon, jasmine, or clove to enhance libido, and sexuality.
Wintergreen: Supports sacral and root chakras. Beneficial for joints, skeletal structure, has cortisone like effect without the side-effects because of the body’s own natural production is stimulated. Analgesic effect is like aspirin. It feels warming, and goes to the bladder, and kidney meridians. It expels damp-cold bi syndrome for chronic low back problems. The main chemical component in Wintergreen is methyl salicylate, which provides soothing qualities.
How to Use:
You can use a single oil by placing 1-2 drops in the palm of your hand and add a few drops of a carrier oil such as coconut oil, or sweet almond oil, rub palms together, and then rub over area of concern. You can also rub over the chakra or chakras that need balancing.
You can mix a few drops from a few oils to create your own unique blend. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
*Always discontinue if you notice skin irritation.
Apply as needed. For severe conditions you may apply frequently every 30 minutes, or every hour. Reducing to a maintenance use of twice daily as you improve. Reduce frequency or dilute with more carrier oil if you are sensitive or discontinue.
All these oils are fantastic for the emotions and lift the mood when diffused into the air.
Bergamot and Lavender: Stress release, and joint pain.
Black Pepper and Copaiba: For joints, low back, respiratory, or nervous system
Basil, Lavender, Frankincense: To calm the mind, reduce feelings of fear, and promotes self-confidence. Can improve cardiovascular health and reduce feelings of pain.
Wild orange and Frankincense: For swelling, fluid retention, digestion, and to boost feelings of abundance.
Wintergreen, basil, lavender: For lower back, hips, and feet. Emotionally helps one feel safe, and secure.
What is it that I do exactly?
Why I do what I do is because it provides me with the biggest opportunity to help people open their hearts, change fear into trust, and work with the power of love. With love in our lives all things are possible. Healing the heart is a necessary step in all healing processes. Love is the most powerful frequency that must be found within, not without.
Negative Emotional-Spiritual frequencies are the root of all disharmonies
Did you know that love and fear are the two most fundamental frequencies of the human spirit? And that all other emotions are extensions of these? Excluding birth defects, physical traumas, vaccinations, lack of water, lack of food or nutrients, or other iatrogenic causes, fear and other emotions stemming from fear are the causative factors for illness, unhappiness, and disease.
Emotions based on fear trigger our survival instincts. Some emotions that stem from fear include guilt, blame, jealousy, resentment, anger, hatred, revenge, sadness, loneliness, pride, and insecurities.
When stuck inappropriately in the repeated expression of one emotion it can become our persona. It becomes conscious or subconscious emotional responses, reactions, memories, motivational, behavioral or mental habits. These habits, memories, and behavior are stored in our musculature, and connective tissue called fascia, creating tension, blocking circulation, which can lead to pain or disease.
Positive emotions based on love include joy, happiness, compassion, forgiveness, trust, pleasure, kindness, friendship, gratitude, and laughter. They generate healing, Qi-flow, and energetic balance.
Healthy emotions ebb and flow between positive feelings, positive responsive emotions and distressed feelings. Emotions express a visceral autonomic response of the autonomic nervous system that manifests physically. Fear is a prime example that triggers release of adrenaline from the adrenal glands that sit on top of the kidneys. This rush of hormone effects the heart causing increased pulse rate, sweating, pale complexion, shivering, coldness, and a reaction to either run away or freeze where you are.
Energetic homeostasis or balance is when people can feel their emotions appropriate to situations, and feel content, and even keeled most of the time. It is the ability to recover from emotional turmoil such as grief, anger, excitement and joy, fear and shock, or overthinking and worry.
This in turn supports physical homeostasis, we can move and perform physical exertion without pain. We experience regular complete bowel movements, healthy appetite with satisfaction after meals, pleasant taste in the mouth, feeling alert and clear headed, restful sleep, refreshed when waked, normal body weight, good muscle tone, feeling strong, active, stable with good endurance, plus the ability to recover when ill.
About AromaTune and Acupuncture
First, there’s sound and vibration you can feel from a tuning fork. There is also color-light and electro micro-current that directly impact these energy centers because each chakra has a specific frequency that correlates with the color, tone, and current flow. Next, there’s an aroma of an essential oil such as lemon, lavender, peppermint or frankincense that open different levels of energy pathways. Both sound and essential oils carry frequencies that when applied together on or around the body direct the body’s cells to ‘tune up’ to their proper healthy pitch enabling them to function as they should. This I call AromaTune.
Acupuncture is the insertion of a fine sterile filiform needle at acupuncture points along meridian pathways of the body that connect energetically to our organs and glands. When needles are inserted at the acupuncture points, they act as antennae to attract higher level Qi-energy that connects to various levels of our multiple body systems. The needles are inserted and removed in exact sequence and locations to create sacred geometric shapes such as a triangle or tetrahedron. Acupuncture needles have a much stronger and sustaining effect for pulling in Qi from the fifth dimension then other forms of Qi manipulation.
AromaTune and Acupuncture don’t create love. However, together they generate a bio-electric current flow that allows us to harmonize and open blocked energy fields to and from the heart. If the gate is open it will create a pathway to love. The heart is the gateway to our soul’s purpose and journey of life. Love creates a resonate frequency that dissipates all negative energy, especially fear.
This means that AromaTune and acupuncture harmonize Qi-energy flow within all pathways of body systems to assist in staying in tune with the flow of life, and opening our hearts, creating love within, not without. This is real transformation, getting to the root cause of disharmony.
Supporting all Meridian Chakra-Energy Centers and Circulatory System
It’s important to balance all of our body systems. Four basic bodily functions must be optimized in order to heal from any condition. One must have good sleep and feel rested when waked, good appetite, regular normal bowl movements, and fluid intake. Before one can expect positive results from cancer therapy, or relief from chronic pain, anxiety or depression, these functions must be normalized. One of the best ways is through balanced nutrition. My book, “Ancient Healing for Modern People”, is your simple guide to eating per your Meridian constitution. It includes the use of essential oils, herbs, supplements, food therapy and a 10-day essential oil gut cleanse and rejuvenation. Chemotherapy and radiation do not support the basic bodily functions that I described earlier. How can your body heal if these basic functions aren’t working? You will be too weak, and tired without an appetite, lack of thirst, and poor sleep. With digestive and intestinal disruption, you will be too weak from either vomiting, diarrhea or toxic build-up from constipation. The body’s core energy must be supported through nutrition and energy medicine so that you can sleep, eat, drink, and poop.
A wellness regime should also include exercise, meditation, Qigong breathing techniques, because they benefit both our physical and energetic body systems. Meditation, prayer, energy work, reiki, self-reflection, Five-Element Acupuncture, and Aroma-Tune benefits our spiritual energetic systems. Awakening the power of real healing begins by knowing our journey here on earth. It is achieved by working on reaching our highest potential possible. This journey eventually leads back to healing the heart.
Areas of Focus using AromaTune and Acupuncture
What ever your main complaint, whether it’s chronic pain, anxiety, loneliness, unhappiness, depression, cancer, or lack of direction, focus and passion, the root causative factor is the same. It is an imbalance between the kidney-energies and the heart energy.
Let me explain. We don’t diagnose a disease or give a name to a condition in Chinese Medicine. We diagnose and treat to harmonize the energy pathways at the soul level that are out of balance. The heart is the center, paired with the kidney as a continuum of the ShaoYin/Lesser Yin channel. All other emotions and hormones from vital organs and glands affect and are felt in the heart. The heart is said to be the emperor of all other organs. Therefore, other energy centers must be harmonized to assist the heart and kidneys. The result is an open heart, strengthened kidneys, where fear is transformed into love and kindness. This allows us to reach higher levels of consciousness, for ourselves, and towards humanity.
In each type of energetic imbalance or health complaint, there is a specific essential oil and tuning fork protocol to harmonize and release the energy pathways. Each oil is massaged into the back followed with vibrational sound from tuning forks that penetrate and relax muscles, tendons, and bones. It is even better to remember to use AromaTune when we are feeling healthy. Thus, our systems can be brought back into balance before symptoms or disease arise. I will teach and provide this information for my patients, clients, and business partners who want to use essential oils, and my AromaTune methods.
This deep transformation will raise your level of consciousness. To Feel strong, powerful, and joyful by finding clarity, purpose, and passion in your life. Self-discovery, business and life passion.
Begin by bringing balance to your meridian system and chakras (psycho-neuro-endocrine centers (PNE); balances nerves, brain, and hormones.
The National Center for Complementary/Alternative Medicine (NCCAM, 2005) describes energy medicine or biofield energy therapies as those energy therapies that manipulate energy fields that theoretically surround and penetrate the body. Pierce (2007), lists common assumptions shared by biofield therapy practitioners of therapies like TT, HT, and Reiki (pp. 253–254):
- The human body has a subtle energy system that interpenetrates the physical anatomy and extends outward beyond it.
- The subtle energy may be conceptualized as universal energy or vital energy flowing through and available to all beings.
- The normal self-healing capacity of the human body is supported by the free and balanced flow of energy through its subtle energy system.
- Disease or disorder can be detected in the energy system (perhaps before it manifests in the physical body) and can be affected therapeutically by the action of energy practitioners, in support of the self-healing capacity of the body.
- Conscious healing intent and compassion are considered essential to the effectiveness of biofield therapies.
- Practitioners’ hands may or may not touch the body. Practitioners also may carry out healing work mentally, from a distance.
Color-light, micro-current, sound healing, and acupuncture are also energy medicine that manipulate the human bio-energy field. Dr. Darren Starwynn, an energy medicine expert, asserts that “Frequencies in the same Hertz (Hz.) have the same resonance and speak the same language whether they are frequencies of light, musical notes of an instrument, the human voice, or gentle electro micro-current”, as told to me personally during an educational workshop in 2019.
I had written an article in which I discuss the research conducted by Fabian Maman along with his colleague Helene Grimal (1997). They showed that cancer cells explode with the correct use of musical frequencies. You can read the article (2019), “Tuning Your Body Using Tuning Forks of the Harmonic Musical Scale Bursts Cancer Cells!”, https://acupuncturecenterinc.com/blog/page/8/
Disturbance in the Heart or 4th Chakra Energy Field
The chest, upper back, scapula and breast areas of the body are associated with the Heart or 4th Chakra. With breast cancer there is a disturbance of Qi-energy flow through this area. Related conditions are often heart palpitations, circulatory conditions, varicosities, cardiac diseases, benign tumors and growths, cysts. Other key physical complaints may include heart disease, angina, chest constriction, coughing, neck pain, upper back, scapular pain, knee and elbow pain. It is associated with thymus, cardiac plexus, electro-magnetic field, blood pressure, and immunity. Psycho-emotional pain can show as anxiety, insomnia, poor memory, apathy, over talkative, feeling isolated, feeling unloved, lacking compassion, tired but wired, manic or withdrawn, hateful, vengeful, vulnerability, lack of boundaries.
Symptoms include palpitations, arrhythmia, tachycardia, bradycardia, angina, CHF, post-surgical cardiac trauma, poor circulation (cold hands and feet), varicosities, nausea, vertigo, benign tumors and growths, thoracic scoliosis, mid-thoracic pain, mild scoliosis.
Musculoskeletal problems involve, ears, temporal mandibular joint region, thoracic spine, ribs seven-twelve, posterior and lateral aspect of trunk (loin), mid-thoracic scoliosis, scapula.
Positive attributes, as one might expect, this energy center is all about LOVE LOVE LOVE! By opening this chakra, we open ourselves to love and being loved. This space is linked with green and is the foundation for inner peace and joy.
The emotion of the heart is love, which generates joy and laughter. It is about loving yourself, enjoying your own company, and not requiring someone else to make you feel whole. It is about growth and nourishment of the spirit. Following your path, and by listening to your heart. This area can become congested or weak by failing to take care of your own needs, and desires. The breast is the connection or intimate bond between mother and child. This metaphorically or spiritually is a place of ultimate safety, abundance, and unconditional love. When we feel abandoned, burdened by the sorrows of life, betrayed, resentful, or deeply wounded emotionally we can feel unworthy, loathe ourselves, develop poor body image, and a dislike of our own body parts. Love is a necessary frequency for survival.
Finding ways to resolve the above conflicts will lead to healing the heart and finding unconditional love within.
What you can do if you’re an Energy Healer
Now, I’m asking for those who love energy medicine and essential oils to join me by helping people you care about to open their hearts, create Qi-energy flow, and transform fear into love. Real transformation. You can do this with the powerful frequencies of doTERRA essential oils, and AromaTune. I’ll teach you how to help others get the oils they need, and how to use them. For acupuncturists, I’ll also share geometry acupuncture of the 5th dimension for the heart and soul.
