Fifteen Years of Excellence

I can’t believe it’s been fifteen years since I founded IX-EL, Inc., the manufacturing and retail company of the Light-Life Tools. While I take a moment to contemplate all we’ve accomplished in this time, it also is fun to take a moment of reflection about where we started. When I first met Slim he was making tools out of his one car garage and plating was done in the kitchen in a tiny home in Golden, Colorado. Slim’s goal was never worldwide domination or tons of money, he simply wanted to leave the planet a little bit better than he found it. I truly believe it was kismet that the two of us met. I felt I had met a man who was sitting on top of a goldmine of knowledge and knew I had to help him get his technology out into the world. I often joke that I fell in love with the tools before I fell in love with the man.

Slim may no longer be with us, but his legacy lives on. I’m so proud of the team I’ve built throughout the years, especially the artists in the shop. Our Director of Manufacturing has been with us for over 11 years and while only with Slim for a short period of time, she still feels his guidance and inspiration. She continues to make the products by hand with her devoted team, all to Slim’s exact specifications.

As we celebrate this huge milestone, I think it’s really important to celebrate you! Our community around the world is absolutely incredible and I feel truly blessed to receive your questions, comments and words of encouragement each and every day. While our customers come from all walks of life and every profession, many of you are healers. I’d like to take a moment to honor all that you do to provide health and happiness to your customers and how you use our tools to make those realities possible.

Many healers use our tools in their energy healing practices, such as massage or reiki, but did you know the tools can also be used to protect you and clear your space? I think the hardest thing an energy healer experiences is how to ground their energy after a long day. We all have our various practices that allow us to return back to center, but I wanted to share some useful applications of the tools that will help you balance much more quickly. Those will help you if you’re a healer or not.

First of all, I highly recommend to any energy healer to wear a Personal Harmonizer. They come in so many sizes and varieties and I encourage you to pick the one that feels right for you. Each Personal Harmonizer comes with a ½ Sacred Cubit Light-Life Ring that allows you to re-calibrate the device. During the day you can wear the ring on your arm, tuck it in the sleeve of your shirt or sweater or jacket to energize you or use it to energize your food and water. At night take the ring and your Harmonizer off and put it in the ring to recharge it. If you wish you can program your Harmonizer with a specific intention for the day. Your intention may be “please give me clarity and focus” or “please fill my heart up with so much love that I have plenty to give to others”. However you choose to program the device, I think this is a sound investment for anyone – especially those in the holistic healing arts. It may help you keep balanced and protect your energy. I especially love the Unity Harmonizer which seems to create a protective bubble around the wearer and bring anyone around it into harmony.

During your day or at the end of your sessions, you may want to try an aura shower. This is also recommended if you have been at the mall, at a conference or concert, any time you’re around of many people an aura shower after you return home is a good idea. This involves taking a 3 ½ Sacred or Lost Cubit Light-Life Ring and holding it above your head and slowly bringing it down to your feet. As you are already energy sensitive, you’ll feel places where the ring might feel “stuck” as you bring it down over your body. Let the ring hover there for a few moments longer or perhaps take more than one shower! You can also do this with a colleague if it feels right. You’ll often find us in the office doing this after an intense day of back-to-back phone calls or meetings. It allows you center and I love how it makes me feel much more relaxed.

There are so many tools available to support self-care and I hope you’ll start experimenting with them. As healers, you have such a generous spirit and you give so much of yourself during the day. Please remember to slow down and take some time to unwind and treat yourself with kindness. I recommend sleeping with a Seed of Life unit underneath your mattress or your bed. You can also sleep inside any of the Light-Life Rings to help you raise your vibration all night long!

Anyone can benefit from the suggestions I provided, you don’t need to be a healer to reap the rewards of the tools. I just think it’s important to recognize all the healers in the world who seem to put all of us stressed out folk back together again. I know how grateful I am when I leave a healing session. In my opinion, healers are angels on earth and we’re lucky to have them to help support us on our journey.

Slim invented the tools as he was looking for a way to help the environment and to find a non-invasive way for us to heal ourselves. It quickly became apparent that there was a profound effect the tools had on the all the people who came in contact with them. I know he would be proud of the work we are doing and I know he would be proud of all of you. Thank you to all of you for helping to support our mission: Harmonizing the World – One Community at a Time.

To share the joy of our fifteen year anniversary we are offering 25% off everything on the website. The sale ends today at midnight! Please take the time to load up on everything on your wish list and I hope you’ll buy something special, just for you.

 

Ask Katharina

Dear Katharina,

I absolutely love the holidays! However it definitely can be a bit stressful when all of my family gathers together. My uncle John is especially grumpy and loudly proclaims how he thinks that Christmas is a waste of time. It really can spoil the mood and I don’t like that negativity around the children. Is there a tool I could purchase for myself or for him as a gift that might get him in the spirit?

Thank you,

Natasha L., AL

Dear Natasha,

I totally understand your dilemma! The holidays are often filled with unattainable expectations. We are influenced externally by media, by friends and other outside influences about what our Christmas “should” look like. I first encourage you to let go of the “shoulds”. Try meditating on accepting each and every one of your family members just the way they are! Even your grumpy uncle. He teaches you about love and compassion. Think about it, it’s easier to be nice to nice people. He’s forcing you to deepen that commitment to kindness. You may also want to purchase a Pyramid Pendant for him. This tool has been reported to increase happiness for those who were previously in a dour mood. Actually, one of our customers bought several for grumpy and bitter individuals and saw them transform before his eyes into decent human beings. Try it out and please let me know how it works for you. Wishing you and your family a really lovely and imperfectly perfect holiday.

Warm regards,

Katharina

Dear Katharina,

I only buy organic food as I want to offer myself and my family the healthiest options available. I go a bit nuts during the holidays and unfortunately organic food, especially fruits and vegetables, doesn’t keep as long. Is there a tool I could use to help my foods stay fresh?

Thank you,

Melinda B. LA

Dear Melinda,

I too only buy organic, local and sustainable foods. I truly believe the saying “you are what you eat” and I applaud your efforts on keeping it organic and healthy this holiday season. The tools are absolutely amazing when it comes to keep food fresh and energized! You can place any of our Sacred Cubit Light-Life Rings around your food to delay the ripening or decay. Try an experiment and put a piece of fruit in a ring and outside of one for a week. Seeing is believing! You can put the rings around your fruit bowl, around items in the refrigerator (my marketing director often puts hers around the milk) and you can even place a 3 ½ Sacred Cubit Light-Life Ring around or on top of your refrigerator to keep items lasting longer and tasting wonderful. I also suggest putting a 1 Sacred Light-Life Ring around all of your stove burners to make your cooking experience energetically charged. That’s what I do. In addition to that I have large 3 ½ Sacred Cubit Rings in the trunk of my car and put all my groceries in there so they get charged already on the way home. I hope these suggestions are useful! Wishing you a wonderful and flavorful holiday meal.

Warm regards,

Katharina

Dear Katharina,

I work in the retail industry and this is our busiest time of year. Although most people seem to be getting into the spirit of things I find I’m always extremely stressed during the holidays. Embarrassingly enough, I suffer from cold sores and they seem to pop up when I’m full of anxiety. The holiday rush is incredibly intense and I would like to greet customers with confidence. Is there a tool that can help with this problem?

Thank you,

Paul D., MO

Dear Paul,


There is no need to be embarrassed! Cold sores are extremely common, however it seems to be something that we don’t like to discuss very often. I had a customer report to me recently that she used an Acu-Vac Coil on her mouth when she felt one coming on. Remarkably the cold sore never came to fruition! I suggest that you try it yourself and see if it works for you! I’m also sending tons of calming, healing energy your way. Don’t let the busyness of the holidays get the best of you! Don’t forget to take some time for yourself, even if that’s five minutes here and there to relax and recenter.

Happy Holidays!

Ask Katharina

Dear Katharina,

Although I love the snow, I notice the cloudy, overcast sky affects my mood. I’ve done some research on this and apparently I’m not alone! It’s been classified as a condition called SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). My doctor has recommended some medication as well as light therapy. Do you have any tools that can help lift your spirits? While I’m not completely opposed to taking medication, I’d love to understand what holistic options are available to me.

Thank you,

Unity Light-Life Personal Harmonizer

Hello S.B.,

I totally understand your predicament. I travel quite often to Germany to visit our European office. One of the biggest challenges there for me is the weather. I’m spoiled with the abundance of sunny days in Colorado, so the overcast sky for weeks at a time can affect my mood even though I’m usually a happy person. This is when I change from my most favorite Tibetan Pendant to our Unity Personal Harmonizer, sometimes the mini version, sometimes the standard. It seems to cover the mood as well as some physical issues I may be dealing with. Additionally, we have many testimonials from our customers of our Lost Cubit Light-Life Personal Harmonizer helping shift their mood in a positive direction. Please try one of these pendants out and let me know how it works out!

Warmly,

Katharina


Dear Katharina,

Recently I burned my hand severely. While it’s starting to heal, my hand throbs quite a bit. Do you have a tool you could recommend that could help me with the pain?

Thank you,

J.S., ID

Sacred Cubit Acu-Vac Coil

Dear J.S.,

I’m so sorry to hear about your burn! They are not an easy wound to attend to, as can be attested by any doctor. Much of the healing process is encouraging your skin to rebuild and repair. My suggestion to you is to put a ½ Sacred Cubit Light-Life Ring, gold plated with three beads around your wrist and in addition to that, try our Sacred Cubit Acu-Vac Coil. People have been using this one very successfully in relieving discomfort after burning their hand. The coil acts like a vacuum cleaner. It is said to pull out negative energy from the place of discomfort by pointing the bead away from the body and circling the coil in a clockwise motion. Much like a true vacuum cleaner, the suction creates a bit of a void which can be filled with positive energy afterwards by flipping the coil so the bead points at the area of concern. I have a wonderful video explaining this process in more detail. Personally, I believe this tool should be in everyone’s first aid kit. Its applications are endless and only limited by your mind. You could also try to use our Sacred Cubit Feedback Loop which works exactly as our Acu-Vac Coil, however this one loops back around replacing the negative energy with positive flow continuously.

Hoping these tools help you to have a speedy recovery!

Warmly,

Katharina

Dear Katharina,

I absolutely LOVE Thanksgiving. It’s my favorite holiday of the year and I go all out making my family’s favorite recipes. I start prepping two days in advance. While I definitely wouldn’t change a thing, do you have any tool that might help with digestion? I love all the rich sides such as mashed potatoes and stuffing, but my stomach isn’t as thankful.

Best,

K.H., NY

Lost Cubit Seed of Life

Dear K.H.,

I love Thanksgiving as well! I was lucky enough to celebrate Thanksgiving a bit early this year with my team and we had quite the feast! It’s such a wonderful time of year. I also understand your stomach troubles as it’s hard not to indulge in all of your favorite foods. After eating, I would recommend taking it easy and putting The Seed of Life over your stomach area. This tool was given to a friend a long time ago to help her with her mother with chronic digestion issues and she was amazed at the results. I hope it proves to have the same affect on you! You can also try using the Acu-Vac Coil over the area of discomfort. You can even try using the coil over your food before eating. It may take out ingredients that are not the most beneficial for you. You’ll hear me talking about it more in the coming weeks as I truly believe the Acu-Vac Coil is one of the best investments you can make to add to your first aid kit. It was one of Slim’s favorite tools!

Hope this recommendation has your stomach feeling much better so you can put your attention back where it belongs – on family and friends.

Many blessings,

Katharina
