Meditation | MORNING SOUND HEALING MEDITATION (3 hrs.)

We at the Awakening Planet team are proud to present to you, our latest music piece made with an intent to aid you to raise your vibration! Tuned to 432Hz for an epic meditation experience, for a calm & balanced mind!

★ Solfeggio Frequencies ★
Everything vibrates. Thus if this is the case, then everything has its own frequency as well.

Solfeggio frequencies form part of an ancient scale that was rediscovered by Dr. Joseph Puleo in 1974. They are a 6 tone sequence of special electromagnetic frequencies. They were originally used in Gregorian chants many hundreds of years ago, and recently, they were brought back to everybody’s attention for their healing powers.

These frequencies induce movements of consciousness that will help stimulate new changes that are necessary for individuals who would like to achieve awakening. So, if these frequencies are so good, why not many people truly know about them?

Well, as it turns out, the Solfeggio frequencies were lost for many years. In specific, it was back in 1100 CE, when the Catholic Church started to look at music as something to look down upon, as it was considered to be blasphemous. However, it wasn’t all completely lost down the history lane, as similar scales have been produced as time went by.

And even though it’s very difficult to find a peer-reviewed study that will prove or disapprove the use of the Solfeggio frequency as a way of healing or therapy, it has been said that these frequencies have helped many individuals throughout the centuries to undo difficult situations, to change their perspective of things, to turn sadness into happiness, but above all, it has also helped many to reconnect with their own true selves.

The frequencies are the following:

★ 396 Hertz: DO. It is usually related to guilt and fear, and how they can suppress other emotions as well. It is associated with the color red.

★ 417 Hertz: RE. It is usually related to past trauma and negativity and the willingness to change. This frequency can help you to recognize those past traumas that are no longer valuable in your life. It is associated with the color orange.

★ 528 Hertz: MI. It is usually related to DNA, peace of mind and clarity. This frequency will help you heal and remove any sickness you may have. It is associated with the color yellow.

★ 639 Hertz: FA. It is usually related to Interpersonal relationships. This frequency will help you heal those difficult relationships you still have from the past while also reconnecting with those who are valuable in your present. It is associated with the color green.

★ 741 Hertz: SOL. It is usually related to the emotional stability you are looking for. This frequency will help you solve any problems you may have in your life. It is associated with the color blue.

★ 852 Hertz: LA. It is usually related to the views of oneself and the universe. It requires open space in order to allow intuition to come in. It is associated with the color indigo.

★ 963 Hertz: SI. it is usually related to the feeling of oneness. It means awakening and interconnected to the universe. This frequency helps you to reconnect with yourself. It is associated with the color purple.

It is understandable, however, to feel skeptical about the use of the Solfeggio frequencies and its application in real life. However, it is a well-known fact that music has healing properties.

And this isn’t something new either, as ancient civilizations from all areas of the world seemed to use music as therapy, in all of its forms. The greeks used flutes or lyres, the Mesopotamians used the harp, or the Incas used the flutes (or quena as they are traditionally known).

This is why music was also used whenever there was a need to alleviate pains that were caused by indigestion issues. It is quite impressive the value that ancient civilizations would give to the power of music.

How to get the best from the Solfeggio Frequencies?

Choose a Solfeggio frequency track: Perhaps you would like to start at the beginning? It doesn’t matter, as there isn’t a specific order for them to be played…in fact, you can choose to do one if you would like to focus on that specific frequency for the time being. Our favorite is 528 Hz which resonates with the color green and the heart chakra.

You are ready to start: It is advisable to listen to the frequencies regularly, as you will get the best of them by doing so.

Many experiences a shift happening after the first couple of seconds of listening. Be consistent with it to truly raise your vibration to cleanse out old unconscious energy that holds one locked in a fear-based reality.

Lāʻau Lāpaʻau | Self Heal Serum – LearningHerbs

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Self-Heal, Heal All

You’d think a plant with a name as auspicious as this one would be dramatic and imposing. Instead, it camouflages itself on your lawn. But it has been used internally and externally since at least the 2nd century in both China and Europe. Its botanical name, Prunella, derives from the German word Brunella, which comes from dying Braune, meaning quinsy {a throat abscess}, for which it was commonly used in the Middle Ages.

Description:

Self-heal is a creeping perennial that volunteers in moist places like woods, pastures, sub-alpine meadows, and, of course, lawns. It sends up a flexible, branching, the flowering stalk that can reach 1 foot tall, with soft oval or lance-shaped leaves and beautiful pink to blue-violet flowers on spikes.
True to its name, this herb traditionally “heals all,” from simple eyestrain to whole-body inflammation.

Preparation and Dosage:

Self-heal is used as a tea, in…

  • #9 – Conflict – Today brings an aggressive desire to be contrary to others. Channel that energy into destructive things that are constructive.

  • #11 – Compromised, But Not Silenced – One’s goals and ideas conflict with another because of a lack of compatibility and a compromise needs to be reached instead of one person being silenced. Imagine a lion being muzzled and unable to roar.

Lāʻau Lāpaʻau | DIY Hand Soap Recipes (And Why to Use Thyme Oil!)

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

How to Make Hand Soap (and Why Thyme Essential Oil is the Perfect Ingredient!)

Before I get into the DIY hand soap recipes, I want to talk about Thyme essential oil, so you’ll know why I’m focusing on it for cleansing skin and supporting health.

(If you want to go directly to the recipes, scroll down to the sub-headline, Thyme Hand Soap Recipes!)

Did you know that Thyme essential oil was used in field hospitals in WWI?

Salvatore Battaglia mentions this in his book, The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy.

He gives a quick explanation for how Thyme essential oil was used:

“It was extensively used to medicate gauze and wool for surgical dressings. It resembles carbolic acid in its action, but it is less irritating to wounds and its germicidal action is greater.”

Thyme has been used in similar ways throughout most of recorded history.

Lāʻau Lāpaʻau | Discover the Health Benefits of the ‘Christmas Tree’, Spruce Oil and Pine Oil

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

The Pine tree is easily recognized as the “Christmas Tree,” but it is also commonly cultivated for its wood, which is rich in resin and is thus ideal for use as fuel, as well as for making a pitch, tar, and turpentine, substances that are traditionally used in construction and painting.

In folk tales, the height of the Pine tree has led to its symbolic reputation as a tree that loves the sunlight and is always growing taller in order to catch the beams. This is a belief that is shared throughout many cultures, which also refer to it as “The Master of Light” and “The Torch Tree.” Accordingly, in the region of Corsica, it is burned as a spiritual offering so that it can emit a source of light. In some Native American tribes, the tree is called “The Watchman of the Sky.”

In history, the Pine tree’s needles…

Home-school fifth grade is coming along, and school will remain closed until May 1. The school so far has only provided a math and reading packet, which we will complete in no time. I’ve also added spelling (apparently, they don’t have spelling in fifth grade anymore), states and capitals, social studies and geography. Spelling words are easy – I just pick the words she spells wrong and bam – spelling words.

I told my daughter that if she passed her spelling test, I would make pizza. While I detest leftover night, I do love leftovers on pizza night!
