I guess I was out of synch the first time I wrote this today: The whole thing disappeared in a Server Snafu. But resonance, the primal sound, the basic energetic force of the universe, is something we are all part of, and something that I've been thinking about a lot lately. A concept that has been with us since the beginning, contemporary physics is investigating resonance and primal source energy as well, with fascinating results about cellular makeup, activity, and interaction with the all the surrounding energies.
You can notice how you feel when listening to music, to someone speaking, to the wind or the ocean. The resonance, the sound, interacts with our own resonance and creates either harmony or dissonance. Our resonance can be measured in our electromagnetic levels, and these shift up and down according to our state of health and balance. When we are in pain or have an injury, the energy- resonance- of the hurt area is lower than the surrounding areas, and this contributes to the feelings of pain we experience. This phenomenon occurs on emotional levels as well as physical ones. Many of us have experienced being in situations, as well, where we do not feel comfortable and eventually we leave. We are out of synch, out of resonance with the prevailing energy.
Plant and energy medicines can help us stay in tune, so to speak. Herbal treatments work on keeping the body in balance so it can properly assimilate and distribute the incoming and outgoing energies. Essential oils act directly on the electromagnetic energies themselves, raising or lowering as needed, and flower essences help us clean our fields so we can stay in balance and at the right levels. Energetic bodywork also helps maintain harmony with the overall resonance. Recent items in the news have discussed the improvement Tai Chi can bring in diabetes, for example. Surgical and treatment outcomes can be improved by the use of energetic treatments as well. As our bodies come into energetic balance, we can find our thought processes become clearer and our emotions are harmonized as well. The energies that flow around us and through us are balanced with our own bodily energies, so we are "in the flow".
Staying in balance with the universal flow is an essential component of health maintenance, and it is not an abstract, "airy fairy" endeavor. It is, in fact, quite real and tangible, and something anyone can do, by availing themselves of the help plant and energy medicines can provide. As always, I am happy to answer any questions you may have, so please don't hesitate to contact me! Thanks for reading.
