What Is Vibrational Medicine? What Is Vibrational Medicine?

Vibrational, or energy medicine are terms that define the “new medicine” of the 21st century, a philosophy and science that views the body, mind and spirit as a complex, interrelated whole. The goal of the practitioner is to identify and remove the blocks that prevent you or your pet from experiencing and expressing the highest level of vibrant good health and joyfulness of spirit – naturally!

Magnesium is a mineral needed by every cell. It activates at least 350 different enzymes in the body, more than any other mineral, so it is crucial for many of the metabolic functions in the body.* Low magnesium levels can cause metabolic functions to decrease, resulting in stress on the body and reducing the body’s ability to absorb and retain magnesium. Magnesium is well known for its ability to help maintain normal muscle and nerve function, heart rhythm, energy production and storage as well as strong bones and teeth.* Magnesium supports a calm state and assists with calcium and potassium uptake.* It also aids in maintaining the body’s proper pH balance, blood pressure and normal body temperature.






Case of the Month

Lately, I haven’t been myself. Anxious, tense, emotional,always seeming to find myself involved in one conflict/ drama or another, especially with family. Always, as I rehearsed what I’d like to say to involved parties in my mind, I would come back to the voice in my ear saying “I HAVE A RIGHT TO BE ANGRY”!
Last week it peaked. In a state of high anxiety without recognizing the cause, I went down to the barn to find my mare in the same state. Usually placid, her ears and face were drawn back in a grimace as she stood grinding her teeth. Her muscles were as tight as boards, her neck was arched weirdly to the right and she shook her head constantly as though in pain. When I tried to touch her, she bit me – hard. I had no idea what was going on and so over the top with my own process I needed help. The local vet had no idea – all the tests were negative. When the mare bit me again I reacted – “if you do that again I’ll put you in a
can”! I yelled. "I HAVE A RIGHT TO BE ANGRY!''
Finally, I saw it. So out of control. Anger, resentment against self and others. That incredibly painful compressed place when the emotion is trying to and finally breaks to the surface. Once it’s recognized though, how do you clear it especially when you’re IN IT.

Here’s some options:
1  - “ Blowing Roses” -
2 -  Emotional Freedom Technique “Tapping” -
3 -  Deep breathing and centering
4 -  Violet Flame Technique -
5 -  Call on your Highest Self and ask her/him to dissolve the energy with Grace, kind of like Cosmic de-greaser.

At a physical level, as the intensity of the emotion recedes, the body may need some support especially for the adrenals. See our product of the month for some suggestions on how to get yourself back in balance after the cleansing crisis has passed. Tasha and I are both coming back to our “real selves”, only new and improved. Lighter, more bonded, more open to each other, more respectful of each other’s process. We are choosing to forgive each other and ourselves for having something that needed to be forgiven. As it turns out, the healer who came out to help me with her, identified a very traumatic event in her past that she had been holding at a deep level and was the source of her own anger and resentment issues. Turns out she had “a right to be angry”.
Glad she didn’t put me in a can. ☺
Peace, Donna
