Tips For Living An Emotionally Wise, Intuitively Connected, Inspired Life
Frequency Music For Stress Relief, Anxiety Help, Sleep Improvement, Body Issues, Group Dynamics And More
Frequency music changed my life. It dramatically reduced or removed:
Testimonials from other people say fantastic improvement for all sorts of things:
So what is frequency music?
It's music tuned to a specific frequency. For some reason, once upon a time, it was declared that music was to be tuned to 440 Hz (Hertz). That's what the music you hear on radio stations, iTunes, etc. is.
In technical terms:
"A Frequency of 440 Hz means that a single trough and peak of the sound wave oscillates 440 times per second or equally that 440 sound waves are produced per second."
Hertz = How many times the sound bounces in one second.
Frequency music is a term for music that is specifically tuned to a different frequency than the 440 Hz norm.
Because 440 Hz is not compatible with the human body. It's jarring. It's not helpful to cells. Conspiracy theorists will say that 440 Hz was picked when war mongers during WW2 wanted to stir up the populace into unrest. I don't know if that's true or if no one really thought about the effect of 440 Hz at all. Regardless, if you are sensitive, you will FEEL THE DIFFERENCE.
Can everyone feel the frequency?
No. Not directly.
Scientists have discovered that there are over 200 mammals–including humans–who have sensitive nervous systems. Nature designed this so that all of the deer don't go rushing into the field willy-nilly. Some will pick up environmental clues that those non-sensitive deer can't sense. Not all deer are sensitive, however, because new food needs to be found and we all can't stay at home tucked up under a blanket and survive the winter.
I am a Highly Sensitive Person. I am also an Empath. I am so sensitive that I have a 100% accuracy rate of feeling a .mp3 player with frequency music on it (the volume so low you can't hear it) and telling you whether the music is playing or not and WHICH FREQUENCY is playing.
I know someone who is Highly Sensitive but does not claim to be an Empath. She can tell you if the music is playing but not what frequency it is.
I know a very kind person who is not sensitive who can't tell if it's playing at all but if you play the music in a room (sound so low you can't hear it) and then you take it away after a few days she will say "something doesn't feel right".
I know someone who is not sensitive, a nice person for sure but not normally emotional, who says "what are you talking about?" That being said, when the music is played and they don't know it, I have noticed there is still a calming, positive effect.
It works whether you can sense it or not.
What are the different frequencies that are "better" than 440 Hz?
YouTube has oodles of frequency music on it. 432 Hz is a popular one. I saw that one for years but never felt drawn to it. Now I know why. It wasn't until I discovered WholeTones that I figured out 432 Hz isn't my jam. 444 Hz now... that one is fantastic.
Michael from WholeTones has a site that is very marketing heavy. Sales-pitchy. Don't let that fool you. He has someone running his website but his product and his intent are pure. At least that's what my experience and my intuition tell me. ;)
He was a musician who got into drugs and all sorts of ug who went to Jerusalem and had an old piano player see him in a bar and was like, "I've been waiting for you, here is the key to healing music, go do something with this."
Michael was like, "What?"
And then he was blown away and his life was never the same again. So he gathered some open-hearted musicians, tuned their instruments to a specific frequency, and they played.
Here are the WholeTones frequencies with my notes in bold.
I DARE YOU TO STAY AWAKE. SERIOUSLY, YOU CAN'T STAY AWAKE.
This may be the frequency your child likes for optimum sleep so you can sleep in a little longer. (OMGosh, mine did, thank you WholeTones.)
Sleeeeeep. AND heal your brain. Can you say, serotonin? Great for depression, chronic anxiety OCD, etc.
Peace, wellbeing and an openness to receive healing. Defense mechanisms lower, and unhealthy fear, guilt and shame diminishes. Known to positively support blood, liver function, bones, brain health (neurotransmission) and kidney function.
Eat something that feels awful? Listen to this.
Break negative cycles such as procrastination, self-medication, eating junk food, and more. Sluggishness and lethargy disappear. Known to positively affect digestion, stomach issues, metabolism, prostate, gallbladder, headache, and lower back problems.
The heart tone. So good for everything.
The Key of David is far more than a frequency, it is the master key that precipitates the other frequencies. As a tonic key, it contains multiple health benefits and has been known to establish peace in the midst of chaos.
Women. This. Is. It. Also, guys, of course. Fantastic to shift the body. Can you say DNA?
Transform restores broken DNA, the source of disease. Known to positively balance hormones, pelvic issues, PMS, pre-menopause, muscle tension, pericardium heart muscle, weight problems, lymphatic and circulation issues.
Make kids stop fighting. Create amazing group joy. Flow with life.
The Bridge fosters forgiveness and peace in relationships. Known to positively effective the endocrine system especially the adrenal glands, as well as gallbladder issues.
Connect to your Higher Self. Weeeee! CLARITY.
Deep spiritual and emotional healing. Awareness of ones spirit. Known to positively affect thymus and immune system, cleansing of infection (viral, bacterial, and fungal), upset stomach, pancreas, heart, blood and circulatory system.
DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS WHILE DRIVING. PUTS YOU RIGHT OUT OF YOUR BODY INTO MEDITATION ZONE. MAYBE THAT'S JUST ME.
This frequency appears to be purely spiritual.
Warning: Start at the low frequencies first until you get used to them.
I knew someone who got the music, played 852 Hz on repeat all night, and woke up feeling horrible and then had an existential crisis. Starting at a high frequency for long period of time is like jumping right into a hot tub. Aaahhhhh!!! Hot tubs feel great but you have to ease into it.
If you are not used to feeling good, a high frequency can be too much for you. When I started listening to WholeTones I hovered around 417 Hz for some time. Weeks. And then I craved 444 Hz on repeat for weeks. And up it went. Now I know where I am in life based on what frequency feels good to me. If I need an "in day" I'm often on 528 Hz. Not feeling well? 417 Hz. When I'm ready to get out in the world (improv class, anyone?) I usually jam to 639 Hz. Sometimes when I'm really in the zone and new thing are popping and I want ULTIMATE CLARITY I'm up at 741 Hz.
(I NEVER play 852 Hz unless I want to meditate. That one throws me right out of my body.)
And sometimes I tune in to the people around me and pick a Hz that feels right for all involved. I'm a stay-at-home-mom so harmony is key.
The thing is, you can tell what feels good for you. Listen to your body and go from there.
I carry my music in my pocket. Here's how and why.
I'm SO SENSITIVE I feel when the music isn't with me. I can honestly tell what people are feeling. I can feel what people are feeling. (Emotions are just frequencies after all.) Carrying the music with me is like having a bubble of positive, harmonious awesome around me. I'm able to walk through the world without getting emotionally exhausted or anxious.
Bonus: as an feeling extrovert, I'm way more quiet and present now.
(I have a theory that feeling, talkative extroverts may just be talking a lot as a defense mechanism.)
I searched and searched and finally found a .mp3 player that has a speaker. It's cheap and so is the speaker but no worries. The quality of the sound doesn't matter because it's still the same frequency.
Here is the .mp3 player I use, found on Amazon.
Go to YouTube and type in some frequencies. Listen to some samples of the regular 440 Hz. Try out some of the other ones. See how you feel. If you want of what I've got, check out WholeTones where you can get digital downloads, CDs or now even an iTunes app.
This mom says it better than I could. She uses some all caps like I would. The thing is: mouth breathing is an epidemic no one is talking about.
I have worked with so many adults who have anxiety, depression, and more. Now I'm seeing so many kids get medicated.
One of the first things I wonder is: Are they breathing well?
We used to chew our food. Like CHEW IT. Because it was raw and we picked it off a bush while we hunted and gathered. But now we make smoothies and eat cheese. With weak tongues comes mouth breathing. If there is any reason for a stuffy nose (animal issues, food allergies, etc.) there is mouth breathing. If not trained when babies there can be mouth breathing.
Google "mouth taping". Sleeping with your mouth closed is critical to health and emotional, mental, and dare I say it, spiritual well being because when you breath IN you breath in YOU.
This mom gives a great story (with a happy ending!) and oodles of research.
Happy breathing! :)
I should be shouting this from the rooftops except I don't like heights. :) But seriously, for someone who has always been late like me this information has been a miracle. It might be your miracle too.
At first it was running to get the bus.
I can still feel the pavement smashing beneath my flats as I'm huffing and puffing to the bus stop in a mild panic. I did not want to slink home and tell my mom I needed a ride to school–again.
Later it was running to get to the Michigan State University Library to open it on time.
After four years of tardiness trauma they reluctantly let me go. I was a fantastic worker once I was there but having patrons stamping their feet in the cold waiting for me to unlock the door at 8:00am was not OK. I agreed with their decision even though it broke my heart. I loved that job.
I was trying to be on time. I wanted to be on time. But no matter how hard I tried I just couldn't do it.
It also didn't matter what I was doing.
Whether it was a fun activity or a dreaded activity–I was late and nothing I tried changed it. Not timers. Not starting earlier. Not putting out my clothes the night before. Not any of the 986 self-help solutions I gave a go. As the years ticked by being late took a toll on my self-esteem. I secretly wondered if something was wrong with me. I thought I was a good person but if I was, why did I keep people waiting? Maybe I wasn't such a good person after all.
But then I learned this ONE THING and everything changed.
I was reading up on Myers-Briggs again. It's my new sparkly interest, after all. One article said (I can't recall which): If you are late all of the time you might be a "P" in the Myers-Briggs Personalty Typing System. (I know I am. I'm ENFP.) "Perceivers" are people who like things to be open-ended. They like possibility. They may go on a vacation without an itinerary or pack at the last minute because they don't want to limit their options.
But that's not why they are late.
(They are also not late because they don't care. They may care very much.)
Perceivers are late because they think they can fit in "one more thing" before they go, and that thing takes more time than they have to spare.
It's an issue of calculating project-time.
It's also an issue of being deadline-inspired, which Perceivers are.
So it's 15 minutes until I have to go somewhere and, deadline looming, I'm suddenly inspired into taking an action: I know! I'll do the dishes. Or clean out that bookshelf. Or sort the recycling that's piled up. Or write back that friend. But that task ends up taking 25 minutes and now I'm 10 minutes late.
Come to find out this happens every time.
So the solution is: DON'T DO ANYTHING.
It's 20 minutes until I have to get in the car? Stop. No more projects. No last-minute things. Either get in the car and be early or sit and wait by the clock. Just don't entertain any of those ideas clamoring for attention now.
It was a strange thing getting to a meeting at someone's house on time today. We ended up chatting for a good while before the others showed up. I didn't mind, it was great hanging out and I felt good about myself. I had actually shown up on time with that easy grace I had so envied in others my whole life.
I had finally arrived.
Here's a real life account of Law of Attraction and intuition in action. I know it's real because the story is mine.
So... last night I went to a Harry Potter party–Ravenclaw, woot!–and when I wandered out to my minivan I noticed eggshells on the street.
Come to find out my car and others were egged while we played our trivia game. (By the way, the goblin at Gringotts was one head taller than Harry, in case you were wondering.)
How could this be? How could this amazing LOA person (moi) get into such a predicament?!
I'll tell you.
When the hostess messaged us that she was leaving a spot in her driveway open for one of us I had an instant thought: Oooh! I should park there.
Upon arriving, however, I thought that's a smallish spot maybe not, but then I thought oh you can totally fit and then that spatial part of my brain that picks the wrong size Tupperware for leftovers won out and I aimed my car for a nice big spot on the street. Bigger than I needed.
Like the sweet potatoes sitting in the fridge, dwarfed by their container.
After I got out of the car I did a double-take. Is that a real spot or am I parking in front of a fire hydrant? It was just an electrical box so I left my car there, went inside the house, and proceeded to make a wand.
Purple, of course. One of my favorite colors.
Later that night, as I surveyed the street, I wasn't surprised to note that the mini-van that did park in the driveway remained egg-free. It was in the driveway after all.
A mini-van totally fit in the driveway.
My intuition was leading me to a nice, easy evening all along, but I missed the subtle signs. The fact that they were subtle, however, is what calmed me while I washed down my car there in front of my friend's house after midnight in the burbs.
Because one thing I have learned which has kept me calm many, many times:
1. Subtle nudges meant all was well. The stakes were not yet high.
Yes, I could have side-stepped the soapy mess, but my car was going to be just fine. Raw eggs can cause permanent paint damage but we caught it in plenty of time. We had flashlights and dish soap and a whole party of people to help.
In fact, throughout the clean-up and drive home and second clean-up in the garage I felt good. Introspective since a blog post was brewing, but quite happy to turn up the volume to the greatest hits of Styx and sing it out on the ride home.
I knew I stayed zen because of one thing and one thing only:
2. Daily practice works.
My practiced vibe was one of good cheer. Born from appreciation lists, listening to Abraham videos on YouTube, changing my thoughts, choosing to feel good...I had a strong dominant high-vibe stance. So much so that it was hard to scramble my connection.
Scramble. Eggs. Get it?
Speaking of goofy humor, this morning I posted a ridiculous photo of me imitating Hermione on my Facebook page. That's it. No story of the egging, just something to make us all laugh. Not because I'm trying to cultivate a perfect picture of myself for social media, egads no, but because I have learned:
3. You get more of what you complain about.
What would posting about the incident on Facebook do? Launch a discussion about how the world is blah.. blah... blah. I am seriously not interested in that kind of discussion. Probably because of the daily practice. (See above.)
But that doesn't mean I have to pretend the incident didn't happen.
Shush it away like a superstition.
Don't talk about it! It might happen again!
No, there is no need to fear. Stories don't create, your VIBE about a story creates. Your VIBE about a potential creates.
Do I feel like I'm creating more ick by writing this out? No, it feels guided to write about it.
Do I worry about getting egged again at the next party? No. I assume the whole neighborhood got Sam-I-Am'd because it's the weekend after Halloween. I also assume the kids didn't realize how bad it was for the cars.
4. It feels good to assume the best.
And I like to feel good. It's part of my daily practice. (See above.)
So what now?
Now I will use this incident as a great indicator that I'm a wee bit busy and not taking as many mini-breaks throughout the day to check in as would benefit me. Just three seconds here and there to tune in and catch any subtle messages will completely alter my trajectory over the months to come.
That is totally cool to know.
In fact, now I have goosebumps.
And now I have some tears in my eyes.
And now I feel like I just learned a HUGE AMAZING THING.
Something my Guides have been trying to tell me for some time but, gosh, I wasn't taking the three seconds to tune in. Ha!
Now we are all having a good laugh.
And I have such gratitude for this thing called life.
This idea has been on my mind lately. Weeks ago I was really struggling with something–I can't even remember what now, ha! But I do remember feeling stuck in some negative spiral about a topic. So stuck I couldn't decide if I wanted to get angry or give up. So stuck I didn't know what tool to use or how I was going to get myself out of this one.
In a wee moment of surrender (or maybe I was just taking a breath) a message popped through so loud it could have echoed.
I do remember thinking for a moment: How odd that the Guides told me what not to do. Wasn't Law of Attraction about focusing on what you DID want? So I laughed and that's when I remembered to let go.
Not of the outcome.
Not of the dream.
Not even of the people I can't control.
I remembered to let go of fighting reality.
I don't remember what was bothering me but I do remember the feeling I got when I stopped my invisible battle and I just...looked. It was the most powerful, freeing sensation.
Imagine not trying to change anything.
Not judging it. Not condemning it or even praising it. Imagine not trying to shift it, put an affirmation on it, or make it go away.
What happens when you can create a space like that?
Source fills the space.
Over the course of the days and weeks that followed my life changed in some pretty miraculous ways. Deep, core shifts where relationships that seemed stuck completely changed. Ideas were new. Solutions arrived from all directions.
My Guides are telling me that not pushing opens up every area of life to a system upgrade. Health. Finance. Fun.
When we let Source in, EVERYTHING WE WANT STARTS TO MEET.
I'm a huge believer in cycles. You do need contrast to bring about new ideas but you also need to allow that contrast to setting into solution. Sometimes it feels great to tackle a misaligned vibe with a handy check-list item.
Appreciation list. Check!
But if all that starts to feel like plastering a smile onto your face and you long for relief you just can't find...
Or rather: how I came to enjoy the mornings because I have to get up early, but let's face it, I will probably sleep in again when my lifestyle allows it. :)
I have to get up early. I have a 3 year old. I also have a 13 year old and a 10 year old so this kid-waking-me-up thing is not new. Now I even have a puppy so I'm really in for it. ;) But I'm not phased. Even though I'm a total night owl–like theatre and RPG geek night owl–I taught myself how to enjoy getting up early in the morning. Today it was before 5:00am. WHO WOKE THE TODDLER?!
So when a friend on Facebook asked yesterday how to shift her 'not so much of a morning personality' thing I thought it would be great to share how I did it.
To being, let's stop for a minute and look at the statement I wrote above: I HAVE to get up early. Do I have to? If I believe in the Law of Attraction can't I have anything I want, including sleeping in, no matter the circumstances?
Let's not get into a whole discussion about highest good and you can't control other people even with the best of intentions or this blog post will be ten pages long. Instead, let's start with choice-point.
I actually DO want to get up early.
It doesn't feel right to have my three year old in the house awake by himself and you try to make him sleep if he's up and doesn't want to go back to bed after 4:00am, so yes, I do want to get up.
This is step one in becoming a morning person: Shift out any victim thinking.
This step is very important.
Until you actually want to become a morning person there is nothing anyone or anything can do for you.
So if you know that you want to become a morning person (or at least enjoy mornings while you are in need of them), what next?
Here's the program I used:
1. Set the flow before you go.
Before you go to bed, set the flow for the next day. This gives you momentum before you even get up. What is your intent for the next day? When my intent started to get really complicated and felt like work I stopped and just intuited my keyword for the next day.
That helped a lot.
It was simple. It was clear. And it didn't contain any clutter like "to do's" in it. It gave me a goal I could relax and trust.
Intuiting a keyword also lets you be where you are.
Sometimes we think being a morning person means waking up chipper. That's not always the case. And if you think you have to be a certain mood–a mood you can't or don't want to reach–it can trip you up before you even get started.
For example, if you have been having a rough week, waking up chipper the next day sounds super annoying. UG. Instead, intend to wake up feeling relief or something like it.
If you have been having a great week but are worried about something unwanted that might happen, set the intent to wake up feeling empowered or something like it.
Now you are not resisting tomorrow.
I often use a Boogie Board before bed to jot down my intent for the next day. I find that writing it down helps a lot. My thoughts can be tangled yet I can get really clear on an appropriate emotional goal for myself when I write with my hand.
Now that you have an intent-goal for the next day...
2. Go to bed as up-vibe as you can
This is like setting the flow but instead of thinking about tomorrow you are thinking about right now. How high can you get your vibe right now before sleep?
This step is important because, like hitting the pause button, you wake up in the same energetic perspective you feel asleep in.
It's much easier to have a higher vibe in the morning when you go to bed with one.
Now that you are feeling as good as you can before sleep... know that as soon as you wake up...
3. Anchor your vibe in 68 seconds
When you wake up you have 68 seconds to anchor your vibe. Imagine a mountain climber putting an anchor in the rock with a rope attached to their waist. They can climb up and down from that point but never get farther than the rope will allow. It's just like that. Wherever you are in your overall vibe at 68 seconds after you wake, that's about where you will vibe all day.
Some 68 second up-vibe ideas I have used with great success:
Notice in my examples I haven't gotten out of bed yet. I'm also not doing cerebral things like scripting or writing gratitude lists. Those may work for but they didn't work for me. I only have 68 seconds and it will take me that long sometimes to sit up, get a notebook, find a pen... and I do my 68 second vibe setting before I even sit up. But you can get up if that works for you. You get to choose. Try it out. Experiment. :)
But wait, did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed where your vibe was lower than you like at 68 seconds? Be easy on yourself all day. Tomorrow you will have another chance to up your vibe again.
I'm not kidding.
If you wake up in a really bad mood... sometimes waiting for bed is the best answer to that issue. Don't make any life-changing decisions that day if you can help it. ;)
If you WANT to be a morning person, you set your flow for the next day, you go to bed as feel-good as you can (relief counts), and you set your vibe as high as you can the first 68 seconds you wake, your morning life–and all day life–will change into awesome in 30 days or less.
P.S. If you only pick ONE of these to do, set your vibe as high as you can the first 68 seconds you wake.
P.P.S. Good Morning! :)
I have a puppy now who is old enough now for walks. It's so adorable. He's all fluffy, tail wagging. But since he is still trying to eat everything he finds like his harness, the leash and.... oh, hello bicycle! I keep my eyes on him.
Way down there.
Near the sidewalk where his little legs carry him.
I was half-way around the block one day when I felt this sad feeling wash over me. I knew this feeling. I had felt it so many times before.
This is the looking-down sadness of having little kids.
They say: go out in nature to be uplifted but you don't have to go outside to feel uplifted. Right now, wherever your are, lift your eyes. Not your head, just your eyes. Keep your head still and look up.
Now try to think a sad thought while your eyes are looking up.
HA! It's magic! Strange, crazy eye magic!
I'm sure there is some scientific reason for this about eye positioning and how it relates to the brain but I did a quick search and I can't find it and if I don't post this right away the kids will find me and this information will sit forever in "drafts".
Quickly now. I CAN HEAR THEM COMING.
So I'll let you Google that later in your free time but even without the footnotes to prove it I have unabashedly tackled many of my friends and tested the theory on them.
When they look up they, too, feel better.
Years ago, somewhere around my second child, I remember my husband asking me if I wanted to go to Europe. I remember saying, "Not with my kids–I want to look up." I imagined the trip as it would probably be, me holding little hands getting to know all of the gutters and sidewalks of Paris intimately while the breathtaking church steeples faded into the distance behind me, unseen. There was a sad little violin playing in the distance.
I was probably exaggerating.
(I have been known to do that.)
It might have been great.
(I do adore my kids.)
But once in a while when I go on a vacation all by myself and I walk through the airport all by myself I spend the entire trip looking up. Into faces. At people. At things. At the window. Out the window. At the life all around me. I'm usually that one person in the airport grinning like a goofball for no apparent reason.
"Oh, sure, anyone is happy when they are on vacation!" you might counter.
But right now I'm here, in the house, in my puppy jeans (already full of tiny puppy-teeth-sized-holes), needing a shower and having to go to the store and I look up and...
So if you feel down and you are busy parenting little ones who are much shorter than you, it might be that you are just looking down. A lot.
Also, check out where you hold your smartphone all day long.
I sometimes wonder what would happen if we all held them a little higher. Kids. Teens. Adults. The world.
What if everything we did with our eyes lifted them–and us–up?
What is one thing you can do to help a new big dream come true?
Stop talking about it. :)
This has really helped me manifest some major things. And it has helped others too, who once were stuck.
But as always: do what YOU are inspired to do.
Sometimes you have to tell people about your dream for some reason. Like I did. That's OK if they don't support your vision. Now you know what to do to get back on track.
I learned something amazing when I took classes at the Center for Spiritual Living (CSL) in San Jose, CA. I learned about having a Prayer Partner.
In one 15-20 minute call per week, you and a friend can make miracles happen.
I could go on an on about why having a Prayer Partner works. You have someone to help you get clear on what you want. You have someone helping to hold your vision for you even when you can't. You have a weekly "target" that helps you keep positive momentum going. You have the uplifting experience of holding a vision for someone else. You cultivate a beautiful service mindset. You learn to focus on the positive. You learn to ask for help. You learn to celebrate. You learn to connect. There's more, I'm sure of it.
How do you have weekly Prayer Partner calls? I wrote up these guidelines based on the CSL Prayer Partner instructions.
And, don't forget... have fun! :)
Partner 1: I had successes this past week! I'm so grateful! [Here they are...] Right now I am feeling stuck at work. I have a new project and I don't feel supported. I want it to be a success.
Partner 2: So you want to feel supported?
Partner 1: Yes.
Partner 2: I am going to say a prayer for you.
Here is where Partner 2 makes something up. You speak from the heart. If you need help creating a prayer, the Centers for Spiritual Living have a prayer formula they use which is powerful as it covers five important parts of conscious creation from knowing to gratitude to letting go. You can see instructions here. If it feels awkward sharing prayers for each other at first, that's OK! You are allowed to laugh. :) Just keep trying and you will get the hang of it. The positive changes in your lives you share with each other will give you the courage to go deeper and bolder with your visions, your prayers, and your appreciation.
Hi! I did it! I snuck down into my office again. :) A client asked me about soul mate manifestation tips and I thought, Hey, this is something a lot of people would love to know. Maybe I'll make a video about it!
There are a lot of things that can be said about the topic. This is a great starter to that.
In this quick video I tell you:
Love, Love, Alora
