“Natural Forces Within Us Are The True Healers” ~ Hippocrates


***********************************************************


1) FOOT CHAKRAS


“…to give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the path of peace." ~Luke 1:79


Along with our system of seven main physical Chakras, we have a web of auxiliary energy centers, or lesser chakras, that provide a broad spectrum of energy influx into our system.  They are often ignored and neglected.  One of them is the system of chakras for the feet. Located on the base, or sole, of our feet; it has as a primordial purpose the discharge the “electrical” streams generated as a consequence of the normal activities and functions of the physical body.


These small, but important, chakra vortexes can be found on the sole of each foot, and they work in combination with the Muladhara Chakra or base chakra, along with other minor chakras in the legs to create a stable lattice foundation for our physical existence. When they function harmonically, the Feet Chakras ensure a constant flow of communication and connection with the energy grids of the Earth to the rest of the chakras on our physical and extra-physical bodies.


They were also designed to facilitate the balancing and assimilation of the Kundalini energy that comes from Earth and its magnetic currents. These energy points act as energy transformers; regulating the intensity and quantity of these energy flows as well as whether or not they should and should not enter our energetic physical environment.


As a general rule of thumb, the more spiritually-inclined a person is, the more they will have the energetic centers in their bodies responding to energy shifts in an easier way than someone who is merely concerned with their material reality. The expansion and amplification of the power centers are directly interrelated with the development of consciousness of the individual and their discerning capability to apprehend the understanding of the multi-dimensionality of life, planes of existence and the interconnectedness of all.


“Your word is a lamp for my feet, light on my path.” ~Psalm 119:105


From a shamanic perspective, it is believed that below the soles of our feet resides what shamans call the auric chrysalis. From these centers, we receive the energy of Mother Earth as a tree receives nourishment from its roots connected to the soil.  At the other physical pole of our bodies, above the crown chakra, we find the auric dome of our energetic system. This closed energy scheme in its turn connects and interacts with the Earthly auric fields.


Each foot holds a vortex on the center of the arch. They tend to be smaller than the other normal chakras of the body, usually varying between 5 to 7 centimeters in diameter when fully opened. This chakra does not have a particular color, but generally, they present themselves in tones of earth colors, such as brown, and with reddish hues, as they are directly connected with the energy of the first Chakra.


"He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand." ~ Psalm 40:2


As the hand chakras, the foot chakras are also very expressive and receptive; during grounding exercises, they facilitate the channeling of the Earth energies. The health the feet is not only related to the ability to stay in the physical body but to the capability of it. The health of the foot chakra is directly linked to our ability to become grounded inside of the physical body. While, at the same time, to manifest the spiritual skill of being an anchor of Light, with the multidimensional ability to actively interact with the world as a whole, in real time, while being a “point of sacrificial fire” for your Higher Self.


The capability to be anchored shows an integrated ability to harmonize your spirit and body tunefully, and it is an important skill to develop in the path of self-awareness and self-realization.


“The Feet have a vital psychological importance in our lives because they represent our contact with our immediate reality, the ground, the law of gravity; physically, the lack of balance on the feet affects the harmony and performance of our whole structure.” ~W. Zchutz

2) SLEEP: THE MOST OVERLOOKED KEY TO VIBRANT HEALTH
By Deepak Chopra, M.D.


Getting abundant, restful sleep is one of the best ways to improve your physical health and emotional well-being. As you slumber, your body may seem inert, but in fact it’s actively engaging in many processes to repair and renew itself, such as:


* Eliminating accumulated stress and physical toxins, including the amyloid that can build up in the brain and lead to Alzheimer’s disease
* Repairing and regenerating cells and tissues
* Strengthening immune function
* Balancing your hormones, particularly leptin and ghrelin, which regulate your metabolism and appetite and help you maintain your ideal weight
* Consolidating short-term memories into your long-term memory


If you are perpetually sleep deprived, you are more likely to have a weakened immune system and chronic inflammation, which is associated with many diseases, including Alzheimer’s, obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, digestive disorders, and some kinds of cancer. A lack of sleep also contributes to accelerated aging, including premature aging of the skin.


Recent studies of sleep and genes are finding that even just a few days of sleep deprivation can have a profound effect on your genes. For example, one study by U.K. researchers found that after only one week of getting fewer than six hours of sleep a night, study participants experienced changes in more than 700 genes, including genes that affect metabolism and inflammatory, immune, and stress responses.


Sleep deprivation can also impact your mood, causing you to feel irritable and emotionally reactive. In fact, a recent study published in The Lancet suggests that inadequate sleep may be an underlying cause of depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders.


How Much Sleep Is Enough?


Most adults need between seven and nine hours of restful sleep every night. This means natural sleep that is not induced by over-the-counter or prescription sleeping medications, alcohol, or other other drugs. Sleeping medications do not provide the deep level of rejuvenation that comes with natural sleep, and they come with serious side effects and risks, including addiction.


If you fall asleep easily, sleep soundly, and wake up feeling refreshed and alert after seven to nine hours, you are getting enough restful sleep. If not, here are some steps you can take to get the deep rest you need.


1. Align with Nature’s Rhythms


You can get the highest quality sleep by aligning your sleeping times with your circadian rhythms, which are your body’s own natural rhythms of physical and mental activity. Governed by your body’s internal clock, your circadian rhythms regulate feelings of sleepiness and wakefulness, as well as body temperature and various hormonal changes, over a period of approximately 24 hours.


Our circadian rhythms are aligned with nature’s cycle of light and dark, which is why our body is naturally alert and awake when the sun rises. As the day wanes and it becomes dark, our body naturally slows down, increasing its production of natural chemicals such as melatonin in preparation for sleep.


You’ve probably noticed that if you sleep eight hours between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., you feel more rested than if you sleep the same number of hours between midnight and 8 a.m. This is because our circadian rhythms follow nature’s rhythms, and we therefore feel most invigorated by sleeping when it’s dark and rising with the sun.


If you’re used to staying up through the wee hours, getting to bed by 10 and waking early may be a challenge, but is one of the most beneficial habits you can adopt.


Tip: Try adjusting your sleep schedule in 15-minute increments. For example, if you normally get up at 7 a.m., but want to start waking at 6 a.m., set your alarm and wake up at 6:45 a.m., then 6:30 a.m., and so on. If you need to make more immediate shifts in your sleep schedule, try 30-minute increments.


Evening Sleep Routine


Here are a few suggestions that will help you fall asleep by 10 p.m. and experience restful, restorative sleep:


Eat a relatively light dinner no later than 7 p.m. Avoid late-night meals or snacks, and don’t go to bed with a full stomach because this interferes with sleep and your body’s nocturnal detoxification processes.

 
Take a leisurely stroll after dinner.


  Avoid intense mental activity or emotional interactions, such as balancing your checkbook, arguing with someone, or watching the news before you go to bed. Also avoid devices with self-illuminating electronic displays, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops, at least two hours before bed. The blue light suppresses melatonin and can trick your brain into thinking that it’s daytime and that you need to be awake and alert. There are some computer programs and apps that can block the blue light of your screen display based on your location and time.

 
Take a warm bath to relax your body and mind. You can add a few drops of a calming aromatherapy oil such as lavender, sandalwood, or vanilla.
Enjoy some light or inspirational reading and listen to soft music.

 
Sleep in a totally dark room because darkness helps increase melatonin. Even dim light, such as a glowing clock display, can interfere with your circadian rhythms and melatonin secretion and disturb sleep.

 
If your mind is very active, journal for a few minutes before bed, “downloading” some of your thoughts and concerns so you don’t need to ruminate about them when you shut your eyes.

 
Once in bed, close your eyes and simply “feel your body.” This means focusing on your body and wherever you notice tension, consciously relaxing that area. Then, simply watch your slow, easy breathing until you fall asleep.


Rest and sleep are so critical to your ability to thrive that it’s well worth the effort to take a careful look at your sleep habits and make any changes needed to improve the quality and quantity of your sleep.


Tip: If you find yourself tempted to stay up late surfing the Internet, watching TV, or posting on social media sites, establish a set time (such as 7 p.m.) to disengage from your electronic devices, including your phone, computer, tablets, and TV.


2. Move Your Body


An important part of following nature’s rhythms is moving your body and getting physical exercise on a regular basis. Physical activity enhances the flow of energy and information throughout your body and releases the stress that can keep you awake at night. Your body was designed to move, breathe, and stretch, and when you do so on a regular basis, you’ll find it easier to fall—and stay—asleep.


Keep in mind that it might take a few weeks to notice the benefits of exercise on your sleep patterns. For example, in one study of sleep and exercise, researchers found that when adults with insomnia engage in moderate aerobic exercise for 30 minutes for three or four times per week, after 16 weeks their sleep quality and duration improved significantly, and they experienced a decrease in daytime sleepiness.


3. Meditate


One of the leading causes of disturbed sleep is stress. Even though our body is tired and craves rest, we lie in bed ruminating about something that happened earlier in the day, or worrying about something that might happen in the future. Whenever we perceive physical or psychological threats, we activate our body’s stress response. Our blood pressure rises, our heart beats faster, and we release stress hormones such as cortisol. These symptoms of stress can keep us awake.


In addition to getting regular physical exercise, daily meditation is one of the most powerful ways to release stress and calm your mind and body. In meditation, you go beyond the mind’s noisy internal dialogue and experience the stillness and silence of expanded awareness. Your heart rate and breathing slow, and you activate the body’s parasympathetic system, releasing accumulated stress. After your meditation session, you carry this sense of greater calm with you into your activities, allowing you to stay more centered in the face of life’s inevitable stresses—and helping you to drift peacefully to sleep when it’s time for bed.


Keep in mind that you don’t need to meditate for hours to benefit from the practice. Even if you meditate for just five to ten minutes each day, you will receive many healing benefits.


Meditation Practice: Observing the Breath


Observing the breath is a simple meditation technique that cultivates peace, clarity, and present moment awareness.


Find a comfortable seated position with your legs uncrossed and your back erect but not rigid.


Close your eyes, which helps turn your attention within.


Take a few deep breaths and then breathe as you normally do.


Now observe your breath. Feel the sensations in your body as you inhale and exhale.


This is an effortless process. When you notice that your attention has wandered away from your breath, gently return it to your breath, without trying to concentrate or force it.
Do this breathing meditation for two minutes, gradually extending the time as you feel comfortable.


When the time is up, sit with your eyes gently closed, taking a moment to rest in the stillness and silence. When you emerge from your meditation, you will carry a little bit more peace into all of your daily activities … including your night’s sleep.

3) THE NEGATIVE IMPACT OF SUGAR ON YOUR BRAIN
By Joel Fuhrman, MD. Board Certified Physician


The brain uses more energy than any other organ in the human body and glucose is its source of fuel. But what happens when the brain is exposed to the excessive amount of sugars in the standard American diet? In this case, more is definitely not better.

In the brain, excess sugar impairs both our cognitive skills and our self-control (having a little sugar stimulates a craving for more). Sugar has drug-like effects in the reward center of the brain.


Scientists have proposed that sweet foods—along with salty and fatty foods—can produce addiction-like effects in the human brain, driving loss of self-control, overeating and subsequent weight gain.


In early humans, this stimulus helped lead them to calorie-rich foods, which aided survival when food was scare. But now this primitive drive contributes to our epidemics of obesity and diabetes. The behavioral and neurobiochemical characteristics of substance abuse and overeating are quite similar, and the idea of food addiction is gaining ground among scientists.


Reward Response


In humans, high-glycemic foods have been found to activate regions of the brain associated with the reward response and provoke more intense feelings of hunger compared to low-glycemic foods. Foods that cause a higher elevation in blood glucose produce a greater addictive drive in the brain.

Studies on brain activity have provided evidence supporting the idea that overeating alters our brain’s reward system, which then further drives overeating.


This same process is thought to underlie the tolerance associated with addiction. Over time, greater amounts of the substance are required to reach the same level of reward. Studies imply that overeating results in a diminished reward response and a progressively worsening addiction to low-nutrient foods rich in sugar, salt, and fat.


Impacts of Excess Sugar on the Body


Throughout the body, excess sugar is harmful. Even a single instance of elevated glucose in the bloodstream can be harmful to the brain, resulting in slowed cognitive function and deficits in memory and attention. Sugar also affects mood. In healthy young people, the ability to process emotion is compromised with elevated blood glucose, according to a recent brain imaging study. Another study found that type 2 diabetics increased feelings of sadness and anxiety during acute hyperglycemia (elevated blood sugar).


Elevated Glucose and Your Brain


Elevated blood glucose harms blood vessels. Blood vessel damage is the major cause of the vascular complications of diabetes, leading to other problems, such as damage to blood vessels in the brain and eyes causing retinopathy. Studies of long-term diabetics show progressive brain damage leading to deficits in learning, memory, motor speed, and other cognitive functions.

Frequent exposure to high glucose levels diminishes mental capacity, as higher HbA1c levels have been associated with a greater degree of brain shrinkage. Even in those without diabetes, higher sugar consumption is associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function.


These effects are thought to be due to a combination of hyperglycemia, hypertension, insulin resistance, and elevated cholesterol.

Any sugar added in our food is dangerous. We can avoid these dangers by satisfying our sweet tooth with fresh fruit in place of refined sugars. Other concentrated sweeteners, such as agave, honey, and maple syrup are equally dangerous. By eating fresh fruit we get the satisfying sweetness and the added bonus of the fruit’s fiber, antioxidants, and phytochemicals that curtail the surge of sugar in the bloodstream and block its negative effects.
