Rituales para asegurar un 2013 lleno de amor, dinero, prosperidad y salud. Feliz año

31 Dic
Este 31 de diciembre no hace falta que te apresures para realizar todos los rituales juntos, tendrás toda una hora después de las campanadas para hacerlo, cuestión de organizarte.
Se mezclan las tradiciones con los rituales, pero mientras creas en ellos todos serán efectivos.
Hay ciertas cosas que debes hacer antes de las doce, algunas durante y otras después.  Vamos en orden:
Desde la mañana o el fin de semana anterior si trabajas, limpia tus espacios de la forma tradicional botando toda la basura fuera de la casa, luego el 31 barre hacia afuera, recoge lo barrido y  bótalo.  Limpia el piso de afuera hacia adentro, con infusión de romero, albahaca o laurel (no prepares mucha cantidad suficiente para  lo que vayas a hacer), lo que sobre viértelo en el jardín y si no tienes repártelo en los materos de la casa.  Guarda todos los implementos de limpieza donde no se vean. Enciende una varilla de incienso de sándalo y coloca un limón en cada espacio.  Para finalizar abre la puerta de la casa,  visualiza la energía positiva entrando en todos los espacios e iluminándolos con su luz mientras sale la energía oscura y el primero al atardecer retira los limones y entiérralos en una maceta o en el jardín mientras repites: En esta casa siempre hay salud, dicha, dinero, prosperidad, paz y abundancia.  Evita barrer el primero de enero, si tienes que hacerlo que sea de afuera hacia adentro y  guardas lo barrido para desecharlo el 2.
Busca unas horas el 31 para borrar memorias.  Prepara una lista con todas las cosas que quieres olvidar y que sabes que recordarlas te entristece o te molesta, una en cada línea para que las puedas cortar en tiritas, lee cada una de ellas y limpia tu memoria diciéndole a la divinidad que reside en ti: Lo siento por la participación que pude haber tenido para que (nombras la situación), perdóname si de alguna forma colaboré para que esto pasara, gracias por darme la oportunidad de dejarte ir y ser libre, te amo ( y visualiza a todos los participantes inclusive tu mismo sonriendo felices).  Una vez que lo hayas hecho quema la tirita de forma segura preferiblemente en un recipiente de metal para ir recogiendo las cenizas y cuando estén frías deséchalas fuera de tu casa, sintiendo que todos los malos sentimientos que esos hechos pudieron haber despertado en ti se van con ellas.  Si no puedes el lunes porque trabajas, hazlo el domingo pero debes cuidarte de no acumular rencores el lunes, si pasa date una ducha especial en la que dejarás ir todos lo retenido por el desagüe.  Luego que te bañes, como último enjuague usa agua pura con pétalos de rosas, miel y esencia de mandarina.
Si tienes el sitio adecuado para hacerlo y no te incomoda la idea, puedes preparar un pequeño monigote del “año viejo” con trozos de ropa vieja,  colocarle dentro la lista con las cosas que quieres que se vayan y las que no quieres que vuelvan y a medianoche le prendes fuego en donde no haya riesgo de incendio.
Los colores recomendados para este año rosado y azul (no hace falta que toda la ropa sea de ese color, basta que tengas unos detalles), sin olvidar que la ropa interior debe ser amarilla si quieres asegurar felicidad o roja si andas en busca del amor o quieres mejorar tu relación actual, que te la debes poner al revés y luego de las doce acomodarla (para que siempre tengas ropa nueva) y que es mejor si es regalada.  Toma la previsión de colocar dinero en billetes dentro de los zapatos antes de calzártelos y ponerte un cordón o lacito rojo en algún lado.
Dependiendo de lo que quieras incrementar en tu vida en el 2013, estos son los colores de las velas que debes tener encendidas al momento de  iniciar el año:
Azules para la Paz
Doradas para la abundancia
Rojas para el amor
Verdes para la salud
Blancas para claridad mental y
Anaranjadas para la  inteligencia
En el menú recuerda incluir  lentejas, ya que comer lentejas  en  la última cena del año, es uno de las tantas cosas que se hace para que haya dinero todo el próximo año.
Ten preparados tantos paquitos de 13 uvas como comensales haya para que se las coman con las doce campanadas mientras se dan el feliz año con alegría y amor.  Personalmente les quito la piel y las semillas para que sean mas fáciles de comer.
Regala espigas de trigo atadas con una cinta roja, son símbolo de  abundancia. Lo ideal es que todos tengan una en las manos a la medianoche y que haya esparcirlas por la casa. Decora con flores frescas.
Ten cerca de ti la afirmación del Dr. Wayne Dyer y así puedas leerla luego de las campanadas: Yo decreto aquí y ahora, hacer reinar permanentemente el amor, la paz y la alegría en mi y alrededor de mi, para mi mas alto beneficio y el beneficio de todos. Y puedes brindar de forma diferente diciendo Feliz año! Somos amor, alegría y paz!
Para conjurar el amor en el momento del brindis, lo recomendado es poner algo de oro, mejor si un anillo, en tu copa.  No lo debes retirar sino hasta que hayas abrazado a todos los presentes y bebido todo el champán.
Si quieres aumentar la probabilidad de viajar ten a mano una maleta y luego de las campanadas sal con ella a la calle, si no reviste peligro dale una vuelta a la cuadra, y vuelve a entrar.
Si te gusta y a manera de protección cuelga una mata de sávila (aloe) detrás de la puerta de entrada de la casa, debes hacerlo luego de las doce campanadas y la debes dejar todo el año.
Si no preparaste el pozo del dinero el 25 hazlo dentro de la hora siguiente a las campanadas.
En esa misma hora, si lo prefieres, puedes guardar en una bolsita roja con un listón dorado, nueve (9) monedas de la misma denominación y un imán pequeño. Dicha talismán para atraer dinero, debes dejarlo dentro de la casa en el punto en línea recta que esté mas alejado de la puerta principal.
Si realizaste con anterioridad tu lista de deseos puedes reafirmar cada uno el 31 antes de las campanadas o después.  Aprovechando la energía positiva del ambiente déjala al lado de una de las velitas que hayas encendido y ponle una varita de incienso de sándalo.  Una vez se consuma la vela, la recoges y la pones en un lugar visible donde le puedas prestar la debida atención.
El 2013 es el año de la sabiduría, del beneficio mutuo, la nobleza y la comprensión, para ser Amor y avanzar dichosos por la senda de la Era de Acuario.

Cómo preparar el Pozo del dinero

Para preparar el pozo del dinero lo puedes hacer colocando en una vasija o copa transparente, preferiblemente de cristal y redonda (tipo globo) monedas, arroz, miel y canela preferiblemente en rama.  Deja caer las monedas de forma que se sienta su tintinear llamando abundancia.  Cuando dejes caer el arroz di en voz alta o en silencio para ti en mi casa hay dinero en abundancia, luego rocías la miel y colocas la ramas de canela diciendo en mi vida hay armonía, paz y felicidad.

Debes tenerlo todo el año en un sitio a la vista, que sirva de recordatorio a tus deseos de abundancia, de forma tal que cada vez que lo veas repitas las afirmaciones que dijiste cuando lo preparaste o aquellas que escojas y que te hagan sentir bienestar y cada día a partir de ese debes añadirle una moneda mas.

Recibes dicha, armonía y  prosperidad!

Arquitecto de Sueños – Feng Shui: Limpieza para recibir el 2013

31 Dic

Una aproximación al 2013, un año seis…

31 Dic
El  2013 será un año 6, en su firmamento astrológico destacan los insólitos, la agrupación de eventos enfocados en un solo ámbito y las oportunidades de compartir con otros en una relación ganar – ganar.
Corresponderá al Año chino de la Serpiente, no me parece casual que al igual que el dragón, se asocie con Quetzalcoatl, la Serpiente Emplumada quien  según las profecías comenzó a estar presente en nuestras vidas a partir del 21/12/2012. Tanto la Serpiente china como la Serpiente emplumada representan a la Sabiduría…

 

El número 6 según Euclides es un número matemáticamente perfecto, porque sus divisores (1,2,3) suman 6,  bíblicamente es el mas perfecto de los imperfectos porque solo le falta uno para llegar a 7…  es considerado por muchos como el símbolo de la armonía.  Representa a los Hexagramas del I ching, porque están formados por seis líneas. Corresponde a la Belleza según la Cabalá y nos habla del amor eterno. En numerología se asocia a la honestidad, la estabilidad, el equilibrio y a la fidelidad.  Nos dice que el 2013 será un año para controlar los impulsos, para hacer las cosas bien desde la primera vez, para ayudar a los demás, para evitar perseguir imposibles o hacer las cosas a cualquier costa.  Para vivir una vida serena, equilibrada y sensata con el toque apropiado de prudencia.
El signo que se le asocia es Virgo,  que es el signo de la pureza. Habla de  organización,  trabajo en equipo, de saber qué debe hacer cada quien y llevarlo a cabo según convenga.  Está representado por la diosa Némesis, encargada de que se cumpla la justicia divina, tomará fuerza entonces la ley del karma que nos dice que tal cual des recibirás.  El arquetipo del año serán las hormigas y las abejas.  La salud, la pulcritud  y el concepto de servicio cobrarán importancia, el último desde el punto de vista de quien lo recibe,  por lo que  sentiremos la necesidad de exigir calidad.
Según Martín Schulman Dios le dijo a Virgo:  A ti Virgo, te pido que cuides celosamente Mi Creación; vigila y analiza todo lo que el hombre ha hecho en ella. Tendrás que observar detalladamente sus caminos y recordarles sus errores y así, a través de ti, será perfeccionada. Para cumplir tu Misión, te doy el Don de la Pureza del Juicio.
Durante el 2013 será propicio mantener balanceado el chacra de la garganta el cual cuando se encuentra desbalanceado nos inclina a  hablar “de mas” o simplemente a ser demasiado callados, a no decir nada, a que surja miedo a ser rechazados o desaprobados por las demás personas, miedo a fracasar en la vida social o en cualquier cosa que tenga que ver con interactuar con seres humanos y a tornarnos o demasiado agresivos o muy tristes como sistema de defensa. Para balancearlo se debe repetir en múltiplos de tres veces y mejor si 108 veces al día el mantra Ham que se pronuncia jammmmmm, haciéndolo nos hacemos capaces de mantener un buen contacto con nuestro ser interior lo que nos permitirá escucharlo y sabremos cómo tenemos que actuar según las circunstancias, para seguir aprendiendo y evolucionando, nos daremos cuenta de nuestras necesidades materiales y espirituales, comprenderemos mas fácilmente cual es nuestro papel en el mundo, la sociedad, el trabajo, y le sacaremos provecho a todo ello.
La carta del Tarot Los Enamorados  La simbología de esta carta representa a un joven que está en una disyuntiva, dos son las chicas que lo acompañan una de ellas joven y pudorosa se tapa con su capa mientras apoya la mano derecha en el corazón de su enamorado, la segunda es mayor, le coloca una mano en el hombro como ofreciéndole apoyo mientras la otra la dirige hacia el sexo del galán. Cupido desde arriba anuncia que será una decisión del corazón. Mientras el sol brilla intensamente detrás de los actores de este drama.
Esta carta nos habla del principio de la Polaridad: Todo es doble, todo tiene dos polos; todo, su par de opuestos: los semejantes y los antagónicos son lo mismo; los opuestos son idénticos en naturaleza, pero diferentes en grado; los extremos se tocan; todas las verdades son medias verdades, todas las paradojas pueden reconciliarse. Y de como el  ser humano se enfrenta a el cuando tiene que tomar una decisión. La respuesta está en el corazón quiere decir que  debe buscarla en su interior, desechando la inmediata que es la que le sugiere la mente cuando usa el ego como marco de referencia.  Sugiere que durante todo el año tengamos presente la paradoja del burro de Ballam:
En cierta ocasión un burro tenía mucha hambre y estaba a punto de morir por inanición pero tuvo la suerte de que por allí pasara un buen hombre que al compadecerse, inmediatamente le llevó dos porciones de alimento una de alfalfa y otra de heno. Marchó satisfecho por su buena acción. Al otro día, se acordó de su experiencia vivida y nuevamente llevó una porción de alfalfa al burro. Pero que sorpresa!, el burro yacía entre las porciones de alimento que le fueron suministradas por este hombre: el animal estaba muerto porque no había sido capaz de escoger.
Moraleja: No es la inercia la solución ante el dilema cualesquiera sea el ámbito en el que se presente.
Un año para saber cuando hay que detenerse, para no caer en enfrentamientos, porque aunque parezcan favorables terminarían creando enemistades y causando molestias.
En el 2013 la clave será activar la nobleza, la comprensión y la sabiduría que vive dentro de cada uno de nosotros y siendo amor  avanzar por el camino de la Era de Acuario.
Namaste

Are You Living Your True Purpose? Here are 4 ways to find out.

30 Dic

IN MANY EASTERN PHILOSOPHIES, dharma refers to the fundamental laws that govern and sustain the universe. The word dharma comes from ancient Sanskrit and literally means “pillar” — that which upholds. Therefore, whatever upholds the harmony of all life is considered dharmic and contributes to the expansion of joy, love and tranquility.

Like many Sanskrit words, dharma has many layers of meaning, and so it also commonly refers to our purpose in life and the unique talent we were born to express. Following our dharma in the deepest sense means that all of our thoughts, intentions, words and actions support our highest purpose. We’re not merely acting out of a sense of duty or obeying the laws set down by society but are behaving in integrity with our spiritual purpose. When everything that we do and think is in alignment with our dharma, we experience boundless happiness, success and love — and in turn, contribute to the harmony and wholeness of the entire universe and everyone in it.

Using Our Gifts to Serve and Heal

The spiritual Law of Dharma states that for every special talent, the world has a unique need that can only be filled by the expression of that talent. We make fullest use of the Law of Dharma by committing to serve others through our unique creative expression, in whatever form that takes. When we do so, the entire field of pure potentiality opens to us. We’re able to create as much happiness and wealth as we want because we’re in harmony with the domain of spirit, from which all manifestation flows.

We have a built-in mechanism to help us stay in alignment with our dharma: our body. When we fail to honor our commitments, our physical self sends out signs of discomfort and even pain. Headaches, anxiety, insomnia, depression, chronic fatigue and digestive disorders are a few symptoms the body may generate when we’ve forgotten to honor some clause in our contract to ourselves. However, if we’re willing to listen to the messages our body is sending to us and make choices to move back into harmony with our sacred purpose, health, love, happiness and abundance will more readily flow in our life.

In addition to the physical symptoms of the body, the universe is always sending us messages that tell us whether we’re in our dharma or have become sidetracked. Here are a few indicators that you’re living out your true purpose:

  • You’re paying attention and notice when opportunities come into your life. You also take the necessary leap to take advantage of what’s presenting itself.
  • Your environment supports you in your decisions. As you move forward, events fall into place to help you move in your chosen direction.
  • You’re ready to move forward. You’ve outgrown your old reality and are prepared for a change.
  • You feel joyful and free.

On the other hand, if you’re feeling stuck and thwarted in your efforts to move forward, you’re out of your dharma and usually experience some of the following circumstances:

  • You aren’t ready to change. Even if you’re in a painful situation, for some reason you’re still attached to your current reality.
  • Your mind is caught up in distractions and you aren’t paying attention. As a result, you aren’t able to pick up on the clues and guidance the field of infinite intelligence is sending to you.
  • The environment won’t support you. As you try to move forward, events conspire to push you back. It’s not that the universe has any hostility for you. On the contrary, you’re lovingly supported at all times; the resistance you encounter means that there’s more for you to learn, your highest good lies in a different direction, or that the timing isn’t right yet.
  • You feel scared about expanding your sense of yourself, clinging instead to the safety of a limited self-image. In fact, there’s no protection in remaining in a contracted state. Expansion is what helps you to solve problems and move forward.
  • You keep identifying yourself with your past and the person you used to be, perhaps seeing yourself as too weak, limited, or undeserving to move forward. People often do this unconsciously, but since perception is everything, it prevents growth.

The best way to align with your dharma is to pay attention to nature and the universe around you. Although we tend to see ourselves as separate from the world “out there,” we’re actually seamlessly connected to it at all times. By expanding our awareness of the domain of spirit, its guidance and our dharma in this life become increasingly clear.

Sacred Sounds – Healing Sounds

29 Dic

Sacred Sounds – Healing Sounds
by Jonathan Goldman

Sound is among the most transformative and healing energies on the planet. It can relax us and make us calm, or move us to great heights of emotion. Sound can restore balance and harmony to our lives and make us healthy and well. Conversely, sound also has the ability to adversely affect us and bring our already stressed-out vibratory rates to new levels of imbalance and disharmony. Why and how? What is the difference in the sounds that make us healthy and those that distress us?

Sound can affect us on all levels – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Beneficial sounds for us are often sounds that we consider “sacred.” These sounds seem to have the ability to charge and harmonize us. There are reasons for this.

Knowledge of sound as a therapeutic and transformative force is very old. The Ancient Mystery Schools of Greece, Rome, Egypt, Tibet, and India had great knowledge of sound as being the primary creative force in the universe. The ancients knew what the modern physicists now understand, that all is in a state of vibration. “The World is Sound!” these ancient mystics proclaimed, and indeed it seems to be so.

If we examine the basic tenants of many of the spiritual paths of the world, we find a commonality in them. They all share the belief that the world was created through sound. Here are but a few examples.

In Genesis, form the Old Testament, one of the first statements is, “And the Lord said ‘Let there be light!”

In St. John, form the New Testament, it is written, “In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

From the Vedas of the Hindu tradition comes the writing that, “In the beginning was Brahman with whom was the Word. And the Word is Brahman.”

The Ancient Egyptians believed that the god “Thot” created the world by his voice alone.

In the Popul Vuh, form the Mayan tradition, the first real men are given life by the sole power of the word.

The Hopi Indian’s story of creation tells of the animation of all forms on earth by having the Spider Woman sing the Song of Creation over them.

Many of us know of Pythagoras as the father of geometry. However, how many are aware that in the 6th century B.C. in Greece, he had a school that taught, not only the magic of numbers, but the healing powers of music. Pythagoras taught of the Music of the Spheres and hoe the movement of the heavenly bodies could be perceived and reflected in the intervals of plucked strings. Today, in the West, much of this ancient knowledge has all but vanished. However, we are now in the process of rediscovering that wisdom, and adding to it through information and understanding obtained from modern science. In Healing Sounds, I discuss the spiritual and scientific understanding of the application of sound as a transformative and curative energy.

Perhaps the most profound scientific work showing the power of sound to effect shape and form was researched by Dr. Hans Jenny, a Swiss medical doctor and scientist who spent ten years of his life examining the effects that sound had on shape and formation. Jenny photographed plastics, pastes, liquids, powders, and other substances as they were being vibrated by sound. The results of these experiments are truly awe inspiring for they show extremely organic shapes being created from inorganic substances merely be exposing them to different sound frequencies. The different substances, which were once blobs of inorganic matter take on varying geometric form and begin to look like living creatures: starfish, human cells, microscopic life.

In his book, Cymatics, Dr. Jenny wrote:
“Now it is beyond doubt that where organization is concerned, the harmonic figures of physics are in fact, essentially similar to the harmonic patterns of organic nature…we have the certain experience that harmonic systems such as we have visualized in our experiments arise from oscillations in the form of intervals and harmonic frequencies. That is indisputable.”

The Healthy Body

According to Dr. Jenny, harmonious shapes and harmonic frequencies are interrelated. Through Jenny’s experiments and research we have proof that different sounds create different forms. This phenomenon is one of the basic principles of healing with sound, the principle of “resonance.” Modern physics has verified that we are all vibrating atomic and sub-atomic particles. Everything has a resonant frequency, the frequency it most naturally vibrates at. From the chair you may be sitting onto the pages of this magazine. Every part of your body also has a resonant frequency.

A concept of disease, observed by the ancients, and now speculated by certain scientists such as Itzhak Bentov in his book Stalking The Wild Pendulum is that illness is an out of tune behavior of the body. When something becomes diseased, it frequency changes and it begins to vibrate differently than it once did. Through sound, it may be possible to apply harmonizing vibrations which will cause the body to become in tune again.

In a healthy body, every organ, bone, tissue, and other part is producing balanced frequencies that create a healthy harmonic of the entire body. A healthy body is like an orchestra playing a marvelous and natural symphony, the “Suite of the Self.” But what happens if the third violin player from the end looses their sheet music? They begin to play the wrong notes in the wrong rhythm. The “Suite of the Self” begins to sour and this is what we call disease.

Continuing with this image, we find that traditional allopathic medicine would probably cut off the head of this violin player in order to alleviate the problem. But what would happen if we could somehow give this violin player back the sheet music? What if we could project the correct resonant frequency back into the imbalanced organ and allow it to vibrate to its normal healthy frequency again?

Dr. Peter Guy Manners, a British scientist who has created the Cymatic Instrument, which projects sounds into the body for healing, describes this phenomenon of resonant frequency healing this way:

“A healthy organ will have its molecules working together in a harmonious relationship with each other and will all be of the same pattern. If different sound patterns enter into the organ, the harmonious relationship could be upset…they may establish their disharmonious pattern in the organ, bone tissue, etc., and this is what we call disease. If therefore, a treatment contains a harmonic frequency pattern which will reinforce the organs, the vibrations of the intruders will be neutralized and the correct pattern for that organ reestablished. This should constitute a curative reaction.”

There is another concept which the ancients understood and which will eventually be recognized by modern scientists. This is the concept of “intention,” the understanding that sound has the ability to transmit the intention of the one creating the sound to the one receiving the sound. Intention is the energy behind the sound. It is the thought and will which we have when making the sound. If you are angry or sad when making a sound, despite the frequency of the sound (which creates its resonance), the effect of the sound will convey anger or sadness. Conversely, if we are happy or joyful when we create the sound, its effect, regardless of the actual sound being created, will be one of joy.

Kinesiology, a method of muscle testing used by many holistic health practitioners, is one way to measure the effects of intention. an angry or negative thought, when coupled with a sound, will cause an individual tested to become weak. The opposite occurs when positive intention are projected onto sound; individuals when tested become strong. Unfortunately, kinesiology is not considered to be scientifically valid and the medical community is a long way away from recognizing the importance of intention in sound creation. Yet the ancients knew of this importance. Indeed, it was vital in the soundings of any frequency which they wanted to call “Sacred.”

In Healing Sounds there is a formula I have created which incorporates this concept of intention as an important aspect of healing with sound. It is: Frequency + Intention = Healing

With sacred sounds, the intention of the individual making the sound is to align with Divine Will and higher consciousness. If the world began with the creator God or Goddess making Sound, then the ultimate aim of sacred sound is for the sounder to attempt to unite with this Sound. It becomes “Thy Will” not “My Will.”

Sacred Sounds

Sacred sounds from different traditions can vary extremely in their use of frequencies. These traditions will often use very different tonal scales and rhythms than we are accustomed to here in the West and we may find these sounds extremely bizarre, out of tune, and quite disharmonious. That is, until we truly open our ears and our hearts to what is really going on. Remember that when Westerners first visited Africa, they reported that the Africans loved to sing and dance, but unfortunately the Africans were totally unmusical with no sense of rhythm. Nowadays, we may hear Hindu Ragas, Tibetan Chanting, or Balinese Gamelon music for the first time and feel very similar reactions perceiving these sounds as totally unmusical. However, once we get past this initial response, we may find that these sacred sounds have extremely transformational effects.

Dr. Alfred Tomatis, a French doctor, has spent many years researching the sacred sounds of the world. In particular, he has examined much sacred chanting, including Gregorian and Tibetan. Dr. Tomatis has found that many of the sacred sounds on the planet are rich in high frequency sounds, called harmonics or overtones. He believes that these sounds charge the cortex of the brain and stimulate health and wellness.

Harmonics, or overtones, are geometrically related sounds that occur whenever a natural sound is created. Harmonics are the sounds within all sounds, responsible for the tone color or “timbre” of an instrument and our voices. The mathematics of harmonics display universal principles corresponding to an underlying framework found in chemistry, astronomy, physics, botany, and the study of other sciences. Knowledge and understanding of these sounds seems to be quite ancient, dating back to at least Pythagoras if not before.

The use of harmonics as sacred sounds may be found in many Shamanic and mystical traditions, particularly Tibetan Buddhism and Mongolian Shamanism. Here the sacred sound practitioner developed the ability of creating multiple overtones or “Vocal Harmonics” and singing two or more notes simultaneously. These sounds were used by chanters as a means of invoking different deities and energy forces and for balancing the etheric centers called “chakras.”

Listening to recordings of Tibetan Monks chanting in this “One Voice Chord” can itself be a transformational experience. The monks utilize a fundamental frequency that is so deep, it seems to be almost inhuman, like the growl of some wild animal. Coupled with this tone is a much higher voice which sounds like the voice of an angel singing in harmony. These two sounds come from the same being, a Tibetan Monk, and they are the result of sacred sound practices.

The creation of harmonics is based upon vowel sounds. The singing and elongation of these vowel sounds is found in most of the major chanting in the world, from Hindu and Tibetan mantras, To Sufi and Kaballistic practices. For example we have “Oooooommm” and “Aaaaameen,” Aaaaallaaah,” and “Yaaaah Waaaay.” Through this form of “toning,” extraordinary resonance of the physical body and the brain occurs. When the reciter of these sounds focuses an intention of becoming one with the sacred sound, the results are extraordinary.

In the Australian Aboriginal traditions, the sacred sounds are produced by an instrument called the Didgeridoo, a hollowed out tree limb. When it is blown, using a technique called “circular breathing” (which allows for the creation of a continuous stream of air and therefore a non-stop sound), the result is a single tone, very deep and extremely rich with harmonics. Those of you who have heard this sound may have found it very similar to the “Tibetan Deep Voice,” which is also very deep with distinct overtones.

It is most interesting that these two very similar sounds were created by two very distinct civilizations, separated by many thousands of miles. Could it have been, as their legends indicate, that the initial human creators of these sounds first heard these sounds in the dream state and then tried to create them in the physical body, one using the voice while the other using an instrument?

The chanting of a sacred sound coupled with the intention of invoking specific beings or energy forms may create what British scientist Rupert Sheldrake called “morphic” fields. These are energy fields that cause shape and form to occur. In many of the sacred sounding traditions, the recitation of the name of an entity will eventually bring forth that entity and allow one to unite with it. Many times the recitation of these sacred names are called “mantras” (a Sanskrit word). However, this practice is found the world over and is based upon an ancient understanding of sacred sound. In many of the creation myths, the Creator God or Goddess would think of an object and then sound its name. The Being would first visualize the object to create, placing intention upon this. Then the Being would vocalize the sound of the object, creating its frequency and bringing it into being.

In Healing Sounds, I developed another formula which describes this. It is: Vocalization + Visualization = Manifestation

An example of this would be “Om Mani Padme Hum,” an invocation to the Avalokitesvara, the Buddha of Divine Compassion. When coupled with the intention and visualization of invoking this being, the vocalization of this chant will have the result of producing a field of compassion. The Tibetans have a highly developed (and extremely powerful!) practice of this in which they utilize extraordinarily specific visualizations of entities in what are termed “mandalas.” Whether it is in the Sufi, Christian, Hebrew, or any of the countless other traditions, including the non-tradition of shamanism, this sounding of the sacred names of the Divine is utilized as a deeply spiritual practice to invoke the Divine.

IN the creation of Gateways: Men’s Drumming and Chanting, the 20 male chanters who worked with me were taught and became aware of this phenomenon of sacred sound. We utilized the various chants from Tibetan, Native American, Hindu, and other traditions with visualization to intentionally call forth spiritual energies for the benefit of those who would later listen to this recording.

When we listen to recording of this type of sound, if we are open enough to by-pass any strangeness of language, tone, or frequency, we are often in the frequency of the person making these sounds. And if they are done with the correct intention, we may be able to experience very transformative results.

Usually, this sounding is very slow and repetitive, creating a phenomenon known as sonic “entrainment” in which the brain waves of the listener lock in resonance with the brain waves of the chanter. This is one way of creating altered states – by slowing down our brain waves. Much sacred sound puts us in resonance with frequencies that are within the alpha or theta brain wave range, 7 to 12 Hz, and 4 to 7 Hz, respectively. Many of the environmental sounds seem to resonate to this spectrum of sound and particularly to a frequency called the Schumann resonance, 7.83 Hz, which may be the resonant frequency of the planet. Environmental sounds may be among the most sacred on the planet, for they are the sound of the earth, rejoicing in itself. Whether it is the sound of the ocean, birds chirping, or whales calling, these sounds relax us for two reasons. First, for the soothing visualization they evoke for us. Second for the entrainment they create within us. We breath with the sounds. Our hearts beat with these sounds. Our brains sing with these sounds.

In creating Dolphin Dreams, a sonic environment designed for the birth experience and for deep relaxation, I was able to mix together many of these naturally occurring sounds: The ocean, human heart pulsed at 48 beats per minute, and dolphin sounds. Also added were a rolling Om, phased at 7.83 Hz and choral voices singing a wordless melody of the Ur song, A harmonic melodic minor sound that is found in children’s songs throughout the planet. The result is an extremely powerful morphic field for transformation.

Many of the sacred rhythms of certain cultures, particularly Native American, employ at their center a heart beat which we entrain and match when listening to. Our heart beat, respiration, and brain waves will slow down due to the repetitive rhythms created. However, another method of creating altered and transformational states is to overdrive the brain and put us into a trance state. This is true of many of the polyrhythmic sounds of the sacred music of Africa, Bali, and other cultures. The over-driving of the psyche which occurs can energize us to the point of what seems to be the loss of control. This same frequency response can sometimes be experienced walking down a crowded and noisy city street, but the effect due to the intention may be very, very different. One experience may be a heavenly, blissful state due to the sacredness of the sounds while the other may cause us to feel like we’re in Dante’s inferno.

The difference between the two effects of the sounds described above (the sacred rhythms versus the city street noises) conveys the difference between the sacred and the mundane. While it is possible that any sound can be made sacred due to our intention, most sounds are not. This understanding is particularly important for those of us creating music. Through understanding sacred sound as a vehicle for merging and becoming one with the Divine, we can truly create transformational energies that will benefit the planet.

Como alcanzar el éxito

27 Dic

Por Mónica Koppel.

¿ Te sientes fracasada, desanimada, frustrada…..que tus metas son imposibles y añoras la vida exitosa de otros? No será que eres de los que creen que el éxito radica en tener granes cantidades de dinero? Este puede ser el motivo principal de que te sientas una persona poco exitosa. Así que si quieres alcanzar el éxito es momento de cambiar tu mentalidad…….. Hoy quiero compartir con ustedes algunos puntos clave para alcanzar el éxito y sentirte una persona satisfecha en todos los sentidos.

1. Desperdiciamos tiempo valiosísimo de nuestra vida añorando esquemas de vida que nos venden en imágenes: grandes casas, coches carísimos, ropa carísima, parejas perfectas y cuentas de banco llenas de dinero. Creemos firmemente que eso es el éxito. ¡¡¡Grave error !!!! El éxito es una actitud……..

2. En algún momento de nuestra vida nos hemos preguntado si ¿el éxito no será en realidad una emoción o un estado de ánimo? Algo que suena y se vé bonito ¿no será en realidad una sensación de bienestar y satisfacción? Es importante considerar que cuando nos sentimos bien, sanos, contentos, tomados en cuenta, respetados, escuchados, alegres y motivados eso nos genera una sensación de satisfacción, eso es Éxito. El poder tomar decisiones en nuestra vida sin sentirnos obligados a determinadas cosas por mantener algo nos genera una sensación de libertad, eso es Éxito. El pasear, respirar, caminar, ver la luz y hablar nos provoca una sensación de independencia, eso es Éxito. El expresar nuestros pensamientos y sentimientos, pedir lo que deseamos y rechazar lo que no aprobamos nos genera una sensación de firmeza y decisión, eso es Éxito. El elegir nuestras actividades, nuestros alimentos, nuestra pareja y el vivir como queremos vivir provoca una sensación de bienestar, eso es Éxito. Al tener todas éstas sensaciones, los seres humanos nos manifestamos de manera positiva y obtenemos con facilidad lo que deseamos. Las personas que nos rodean observan esto y nos convertimos en imágenes a imitar, nos llaman “personas de éxito”. Compramos la imagen de personas exitosas cuando la raíz del mismo se encuentra en un estado de ánimo que se vive, se disfruta y se transmite. Por consecuencia, nos damos cuenta, de que el éxito lo podemos obtener todos.

3. El primer paso para ir en busca del éxito es establecer lo que deseamos y anhelamos. Nos podemos apoyar en nuestra casa para dar ese primer paso. Los peores enemigos del éxito son el miedo y la confusión. Impiden que pensemos objetivamente y que nos aventuremos a tomar decisiones. Tips para alcanzar el éxito:  ¡¡¡ Consiéntete !!! El consentirnos, nos hace sentir protegidos, “apapachados”, queridos por nosotros mismos y lo más importante: merecedores de todo aquello que deseamos.

4. Vé por la sensación de bienestar: Rodéate de texturas que sean suaves y agradables al tacto. Las texturas que provienen de origen animal o vegetal son más agradables que aquellas que provienen de materiales sintéticos. Este aspecto involucra la ropa que entra en contacto con tu piel, todo aquello que penetra tus sentidos provoca una reacción fuertísima en ti que se manifiesta en una buena o mala actitud para ti. Es muy importante que te sientas cómodo.

5. Las formas suaves, que dan la apariencia de abrazar e invitar promoverán una sensación de Bienvenida que se manifestará en una actitud de seguridad en las relaciones sociales.

6. Coloca una imagen de caballo cerca de ti, el caballo se asocia en China con éxito. Un detalle primordial: Si tú te preocupas por cuidarte y atenderte a ti mismo, los demás lo harán también.
