Dance to Let Your Inner Child Play

Tip of the month: Dance to let your inner child play! Dancing is a great way for you to live in the moment. It’s an excellent stress releaser from everything life throws at you. It can be a powerful way to reduce intense emotions and enhance our happiness. When we’re moving our bodies, we become more in touch with ourselves. Our soul becomes centered by fusing both body and mind. Dancing forces us to be present in the now and not think about what was happening and what may happen next.

Dancing offers a creative outlet for you to express your emotions in a safe place. Close your blinds, close your door, and turn up the music. You don’t need a routine; you don’t need to be coordinated. Just feel the music and move your body. Let your inner self shine. Let your spirit fly free. Express your anger, frustration, sadness, and of course, express your happiness through the beat of your movement.  

The most important thing to remember… Dance like no one’s watching. Unless you’re a professional dancer, there’s no competition to win and no one to impress. You’re dancing to find release. You’re dancing as an expression of your soul. Focus on how it feels. Swing your hips, shuffle your feet, wave your arms around. And lastly, dance to let your inner child play.

Tip of the Month: Breathing Exercises

Tip of the month is breathing exercises. Your body needs oxygen to live. As humans, we get oxygen by breathing through our mouths and nose. We can also use our breath to help with all kinds of physical and emotional issues. Breathing exercises can help put your body in a relaxed state. When your body is relaxed, your brain becomes more relaxed. This may help reduce stress or anxiety, increase energy, lower blood pressure, improve lung function, aid digestion, and so much more.

Got 5 minutes to spare? VeryWell Mind gives 8 different deep breathing exercises for anxiety. I’ve picked my favorite 3 for you to try*.

Pursed lip breathing

This is an intentional breathing technique that forces you to slow down. It can also be useful during certain activities like lifting or stair climbing.

• Firstly, find a comfortable seat and relax your neck and shoulders
• Keeping your mouth closed, inhale slowly through your nose for 2-3 counts
• Then, pucker your lips as if you were giving a kiss
• Lastly, exhale slowly, keeping your breath slow and steady, for 4 counts

Lion’s Breath

This technique is an energizing breathing practice that can help relax muscles in your chest and face, relieves stress, and improves cardiovascular function.

• To begin, sit in a comfortable position and press your palms against your knees
• Then, inhale deeply through your nose
• Open your mouth wide and stick our your tongue down towards your chin
• At the end, exhale through your mouth making a long ‘ha’ sound
• Do this breath 2 to 3 times

Humming Bee Breath

This technique helps create instant calmness. It can be used to relieve frustration, anxiety, or anger.

• To start, sit in a comfortable chair or on the floor
• Close your eyes and relax your face
• Place your first fingers on the tragus cartilage that partially covers your ear
• Then, inhale deeply
• Gently press your fingers into the cartilage while slowly exhaling
• As you exhale, make a loud humming noise with your mouth shut
• Continue as many times as needed

* Disclaimer: If you have any respiratory issues, please talk to your doctor before trying any of these breathing exercises.

Ask Katharina: I Have Been Dealing with Negative Self-Talk

Katharina –

I have been dealing with negative self-talk and I was wondering if there is a Tool or a Pendant, that could help me gain more positivity towards myself? You know, the whole world-wide situation is having a toll on me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your time,

Nicole

Advice on Dealing with Negative Self-Talk

Nicole,

Thank you for your email. I appreciate your question because you’re not alone. Many are faced with challenges these days and it is easy to go down a negative spiral.

Here is what helps me: I don’t watch the news or read the paper. They all seem to say the same and I am very visual, so stressful pictures haunt me for a very long time. Instead, I focus on how I would like the world to be and how I want other people to interact with me. Every morning, I write down and visualize how I want my day to go. If I have meetings scheduled, I picture them being productive and
a win for all involved. I write down what I’m going to accomplish and see it all in a positive light.

Now, I understand this may sound a bit hard to do and it is in the beginning. However, it is so worth it if you make an effort to practice it.

You were asking for a Tool and, of course, I have some recommendations for you. To help with the negative self-talk, our Pyramid Pendant comes to mind. If you experience yourself being a ‘chronic’ grumpy person, that may be the perfect choice for you. If you need a mood booster, our Lost Cubit Personal Harmonizer, gold or silver plated, or our Unity Personal Harmonizer would both be a good choice. Last, but not least, our Moon Pendant is a heart opener and if you feel your heart area is shut down, I would go with this one. Use your intuition in choosing the right Tool for you.

I wish you the very best and that you soon start giving yourself positive self-talks. Look in the mirror and smile. It helps! I know from experience.

Warmly,

Katharina

Tapping Your Body can Create Balance

Tapping your body can create a balance in your body’s energy system. Also known as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), this technique is a self-administered healing technique that reduces negative symptoms from physical-emotional issues. It’s based on modern psychology and the principles of acupuncture’s meridian, but without the use of needles.

Tapping can be beneficial for your heart-brain coherence (read more about this in our blog). It can help generate positive emotions which increases your brain’s ability to function. Here’s a great video from Tapping with Brad Yates on listening with your heart and being more heart-centered.  

Tapping is a simple 5 step process:

  1. Begin by tapping underneath your pinky with the fingertips on the other hand. Identity what the issue is and what your focus will be.
  2. Then rate the intensity of the issue on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the worst
  3. Create a comforting phrase that acknowledges the issue and accepts yourself regardless
  4. Tap the following points on your body 8 times as you repeat your comforting phrase. Complete all 8 points 3 times through:
    1. Eyebrow
    2. Side of the eye
    3. Under the eye
    4. Under the nose
    5. Chin
    6. Top of collarbone
    7. Armpit
    8. Finish at the top of your head
  5. Finally, take a deep breath. Rate the intensity of the issue. Repeat all 8 steps as necessary.

Here’s a great article from Heathline that explains the steps in more detail.

Did you know the heart is the most powerful source of electromagnetic energy?

Did you know the heart is the most powerful source of electromagnetic energy in the human body? The magnetic field of the heart even extends up to 3 feet outside the body! Did you know the electromagnetic component of the heart is approximately 60 times greater in strength than the electrical activity generated by the brain? Psychology Today tells us the heart starts beating before the brain is formed. In fact, the heart will continue to beat even after the brain is dead, provided the heart is receiving oxygen.

Did you know the heart actually sends more signals to the brain than the brain does to the heart? Hence the saying: Follow your heart not your mind. HeartMath Institute teaches us that our ability to function cognitively is limited when our heart is receiving negative emotions. Positive emotions generate a harmonious rhythm in the heart enhancing the brain’s functions. Therefore, the brain’s activity increases when positive interactions from the heart occur such as compassion and love.

Our gold plated Moon Pendant is said to open the heart chakra. It is a unique piece of jewelry made out of Light-Life Tensor Rings in the three cubit measurements we’re using. Wearing this pendant may help balance your heart’s EMF. People who wear this pendant say it allows their mind to quiet and feel with their heart.

Our Lotus Pendants are also powerful choices to support emotional balance and may help us stay centered during chaotic times. It may help with mental clarity, emotional stability, reduction in stress, and feelings of peace in your life.

I bet you didn’t know that the heart’s EMF is your superpower!

Ring in the New Year with Light-Life Tensor Rings!

As you probably know by now, I believe you cannot have too many Light-Life Tensor Rings. Therefore, to ring in the New Year with Light-Life Tensor Rings is a no-brainer. Here are some suggestions:

  • Hold our 1 Lost Cubit Heavy Tensor Ring in front of your heart chakra, visualize your desired result, and go into the feeling as if you already have it. Stay in this experience for as long as it feels comfortable.
  • Ring in the New Year with the Light-Life Tensor Rings by placing them over your cosmetics, supplements, and condiments and be observant. Do they feel better, taste better, last longer?
  • Use Light-Life Tensor Rings for your pets; whether you want to help them with acute physical discomfort or just to support their health and well-being. You can place a bigger Ring under your pets’ bed or put a smaller one around their neck.
  • Put your flowers in a Light-Life Tensor Ring to keep them longer fresh. I had miracles happen doing that.

Get more ideas on our Instagram page and keep experimenting. Be creative and find new ways every week to work with the Rings.

You see, there are many ways you can ring in the New Year with Light-Life Tensor Rings. Let us know on Facebook or Instagram how you are using them. We love to hear and get other ideas from our community.

Did you know Light-Life Tensor Rings come in 3 measurements?

Did you know Light-Life Tensor Rings come in 3 measurements: Sacred, Lost, and Empowerment Cubit? All our Light-Life Tensor Rings seem to have limitless ways you can use them to help enhance your life! They can help speed up the self-healing process, fight fatigue, decrease discomfort and stress, boost the flavor of food and drinks, potentize drinking water, nourish plants and animals, and so much more. With so many excellent options available, how do you know which is the right Light-Life Tensor Ring for you? Let me explain the basics of our three measurements of Light-Life Tensor Rings we offer.

Light-Life Tensor Ring Measurements

Sacred Cubit Light-Life Tensor Rings appear to benefit foremost the physical conditions. They have been reported to help with sleep and improve overall well-being. A 1 Sacred Cubit Light-Life Tensor Ring has a natural resonant frequency of 144 MHz, which is the harmonic of the speed of light.

Lost Cubit Light-Life Tensor Rings are slightly larger than the Sacred Cubit ones. The Lost Cubit Light-Life Tensor Rings appear to help with mental and emotional issues. Lost Cubit Light-Life Tensor Rings have been said to support meditation, a manifestation of intentions, and deeper relaxation. A 1 Lost Cubit Light-Life Tensor Ring has a natural resonant frequency of 177 MHz, which is faster than the speed of light.

Empowerment Cubit Light-Life Tensor Rings are in my opinion the final link in the trinity of cubit measurements. Empowerment Cubit Light-Life Tensor Rings seem to benefit on a metaphysical and spiritual level supporting telepathic communication and mental clarity. You can wear them around your neck and they may encourage the opening of the mind and assist you to remain calm during chaos.

All cubit measurements are available in a heavier gauge wire which makes the tensor field of the Light-Life Ring denser and stronger.

Beware of Counterfeits

Did you know that even though Light-Life Tensor Rings come in 3 measurements, we only publish two of them? The Empowerment Cubit measurement you find on the internet is not the measurement we are using. Those are counterfeits, using our wording but not our measurement.

A Ritual to End the Year.

I have a ritual to end the year that I would like to share with you. It allows me to reflect on the past year so I can make space for the upcoming year. It can be difficult sticking with a New Year’s resolution when you’re holding on to unfinished projects and ideas.

The first part of my ritual to end the year is to recap what I’ve accomplished. During the last two weeks of December, I make a list of all my unfinished projects. I decide which ones I would like to complete by the end of the year. Instead of focusing on new projects, I like to focus on completing the ones that would make the most difference in my life. I also look at what needs to be eliminated from my list. I don’t know about you, but I have been carrying around old projects and ideas thinking, or should I say ‘dreaming’, that one day I will get to it. Let me tell you what a relief it has been when I finally decided to let go. It was then satisfying to take the bull by the horn and finish those items I knew would give me joy.

Reflecting on Experiences

Part of my ritual to end the year is to review the year in full. To reflect and ask myself: what has been beneficial for me, what do I want to continue in the following year, and what do I want to let go of? Another part of my ritual is to show gratitude to my team, family, and friends. I am grateful for all I have experienced throughout the year. I cherish all the beautiful moments and commit to having more in the new year.

Another part of my ritual is to smudge my house on the 31st of December. This allows me to energetically let go of the year and make space for the new year.

Traveling over the New Year

This year I will do my end of year ritual at my German office. I am working on reorganizing it and taking the opportunity to let go of the old that doesn’t serve us anymore. It is hard work but focusing on what it will look like once it’s done actually makes it fun (most of the time😊).

If you are traveling like me and a ritual to end the year at home is not possible, maybe plan a big spring cleaning session. That’s a project I already have planned for when I get back from Germany.

Please share with us on Facebook or Instagram if you have a ritual or a resolution and what you are doing. I believe we all are looking forward to ending this year strong and focusing on a brighter future of 2022.

Useful Tips for Fabrics –

Tip of the Month

Many of the fabrics we wear are made up of over 2000 different types of chemicals. Because our skin is unable to flush toxins, like our digestive system does, our skin starts absorbing these chemicals. As they enter our bloodstream, the toxins can become detrimental to our health causing all sorts of negative effects like hormonal dysfunctions, behavior problems, immune system problems, digestive system problems, skin problems, cancer, and so much more.

The best fabrics to wear are organic versions of natural fibers, like cotton, linen, and wool. Truly organic fabric won’t have any harmful chemicals in them, also making them a great option for the environment. Another fabric that is a safer option is Tencel, also known as Lyocell. However, Tencel just produces the fiber, not the actual fabric, so confirm that the company you’re buying from also cares about using safe chemicals in their productions. Cupro is a great silk substitute creating a beautiful flowy fabric. Plus, it’s a practical option because it can be put in a washing machine and drier.

So, when it comes to buying clothes for yourself or others please make healthy choices. You and your loved ones deserve it!

FAQ about the Light-Life Tools. Ask Katharina.

After having our first Virtual Workshop recently, I realized that it’s time to answer some FAQ about the Light-Life Tools.

What is the main difference between silver-plated plated and gold-plated jewelry?

The silver-plated jewelry pieces have an additional layer that seems to increase the thermocouple effect Slim Spurling talks about. What we found is that some people who always wear silver are now attracted to the gold-plated and vice versa. We always recommend trusting your intuition and going with what feels right to you. Silver tarnishes, gold doesn’t. Generally speaking, silver works better on the unseen and gold better on the visible: e.g., for air pollution use a gold-plated Harmonizer; for EMF, and mental and emotional issues use a silver-plated.

Is there a tool that will help calm my nerves?

Please understand I am not a medical professional or a psychologist. I will share what customers and I found helpful when the nerves need calming. First and foremost, I would look at what makes me nervous. Sometimes, giving a situation a different meaning can make us automatically feel calmer.

All our Personal Harmonizers seem to have a calming effect, however, we found our Lost Cubit or Unity Personal Harmonizers work the best. Also, a Personal Harmonizer in combination with our Sacred or Lost Cubit Lotus Pendants has been appreciated. When I am totally overwhelmed, I take the Bach flower remedy ‘Elm’, which works like a charm for me. You can find it in any health food store or online.

What is the main difference between Sacred, Lost, and Empowerment Environmental Harmonizers, so I can understand which one is right for me?

Thank you so much for your question. Please click here to read my blog about the differences between the Environmental Harmonizers.

What Tools do you recommend for better sleep?

Some people found it helpful to have one of our Light-Life Tensor Rings under their pillow. It may support remembering your dreams or having lucid dreams. Others like one of our 3 1/2 Light-Life Tensor Rings under their bed or at the headboard. We do have reports of people who mentioned the energy of the rings kept them awake, however, they still felt energized in the morning and not as tired as without the rings. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution.

I’ve never used Light-Life Tools before. What tool do you recommend I start with and how should I use it? 

I would highly recommend you get the book, In the Mind of a Master, as this is a great reference guide and also gives background on how the Light-Life Tools came about. In my opinion, you can never have enough Light-Life Tensor Rings. Their applications are only limited by your imagination. Our Practitioner Set would also be a good way to get started. If you’re around many people or challenging situations, one of our Personal Harmonizers could give you great support. I would really need to know more about your situation to give you a more detailed recommendation. Please check out our YouTube channel to learn more about the applications.

Light-Life Practitioner Set

How do I choose between an Acu-Vac Coil and Feedback Loop?

That really depends on what you want to do with it and it is also a personal preference. Slim Spurling always had an Acu-Vac Coil in his jacket and I also prefer it over the Feedback Loop. I do use the two in combination during a session, tucking the Feedback Loop onto the Acu-Vac Coil to boost their power.

With the Acu-Vac Coil, you determine the direction, e.g., if you want to pull out negative energy of a situation or work on an issue you hold it first with the bead away. Once the session is complete you turn it over and give light to the area you worked on. The Feedback Loop draws out and gives right back so you don’t have to remember to give back. The best choice would be to get our Practitioner Set so you have both and can use them together or individually.
