Balancing your Endocrine and Chakra Energy Fields

My Chorale Pic

ANNOUNCEMENT: The two-day workshop intensive in the philosophy, science and practical art of Attunement with Sacred Sound May 15-17, 2015 at Oakwood Farm Retreat Center in Selma, Indiana has been cancelled.  For details, please visit my HealingTones.org blog. What I will be teaching and exploring with the gathering of attunement practitioners and energy workers is my rationale and methodology of using sound as a carrier wave for healing energy, a topic which I will expand on in this blog post. Thank you for sharing what is central in my life’s purpose at this time.

The Rationale of Balancing the Chakras and Endocrine Glands

Why is it important to balance the energy fields of our bodies, specifically those of our endocrine and chakra centers? 

When we consider what these energy centers do to assist us in our day to day function as human beings in a social context that requires intelligent interaction between one another and with our environment, it becomes obvious that we need to have accurate feedback and appropriate response to what we perceive is going on around us in any moment if we are to have intelligent behavior.

THE CHAKRAS

From the standpoint of the feedback function of the chakras, for example, it is important that these spinning wheels of energy that bring us information about our environment – which, by the way, includes our physical bodies and what’s going on in them – be balanced and clear of static.  It’s also important that they be open and spinning widely enough so as to gather all the information coming into our fields. If they are spinning in a wobbly or constricted manner, then they are not capable of conveying important information to us.

The chakras feed information to us through our central nervous system. These spinning wheels of energy are grounded in the spinal chord through which they download their information to Central Command in the brain. The receptor for the brain is the hypothalamus, which lies at the base of the brain and acts as a mediator between the brain and the endocrine system. Its more immediate connection to the endocrine system is via the pituitary gland, which is suspended from the hypothalamus and rests securely and well protected in the sella tursica of the sphenoid bone that forms the floor of the cranium.

THE ENDOCRINE SYSTEM

The function of the pituitary gland is to receive information from the hypothalamus and then to produce and send hormone precursors to the other endocrine glands that trigger the production of hormones based on the need in meeting the environmental stressors with appropriate response, thereby enabling appropriate physiological function in the body as well as appropriate physical action on the part of the individual. If the information coming in through the chakras is not accurate, or doesn’t get through to the hypothalamus, then appropriate hormone response in the body and intelligent action in one’s environment will not be forthcoming. One will not be in position to act creatively but will rather react based on usual and customary learned behavior. Body chemistry will likewise be thrown off balance due to inappropriate hormonal response, or an entire lack thereof.

Now, there is an interdependent relationship between the endocrine system and the chakras, just as there is an interdependent relationship between the individual and his or her environment. One affects the other. What goes out energetically, for instance, through the endocrine glands affects the energy patterns of the chakras based on the law of pure physics that states for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.  What I send out energetically through my spiritual expression, which is enabled and empowered by my endocrine glands through which spirit operates, will bounce off my environment and return to me for appropriate handling.  All energy seeks its origin for healing and recycling.

For example, if I express anger through my emotions, that angry energy – besides dissipating the connecting substance between spirit and form – conditions and may even shatter the energy fields of my chakras, making them incapable of accurately receiving and conveying information back to me about the actual conditions around me. My actions, then, cannot be other than irrational and inappropriate. If, on the other hand, I do not react in anger to conditions around me but withhold judgment and maintain a calm emotional and mental inner state, then my chakras will reflect that calmness and be available to me for accurate perception and reception of information coming to me from my environment. I will then be in position to respond appropriately and act intelligently toward events in my world.

ATTUNING AND BALANCING THE TWO SYSTEMS

If I have been stressed out by interactions with impinging environmental stressors and have acted or reacted inappropriately, shattering my energy fields with incoherent and erratic energy, it is not a sign of weakness but rather of wisdom and strength to seek outside help in bringing harmony and balance back to my endocrine and chakra centers. This is the purpose of such spiritual practices and modalities as attunement, sacred sound, meditation, deep breathing and other such aids in creating a peaceful and harmonious atmosphere in one’s energy field.

PREVENTION AND PROTECTION

In the way of prevention and maintenance, one can trust the radiation of love through one’s spiritual expression to act as a shield against incoming erratic and disturbing energies. This is all based, of course, on the ancient knowledge and wisdom of maintaining a balance between the yin and yang, masculine and feminine energies. It starts with unconditional love and acceptance of myself and others and of conditions the way they are.

The Psalmist expresses it in terms of the Lord being one’s “shield and buckler.”  The Lord is one’s inner divine Self, whose radiance in expression through the outer human self establishes a hedge of protection around the body temple, through which nothing can enter that defiles, works an abomination or makes a lie, in the words of St. John in his Book of Revelation (21:27). These are tried and true words that resonate with the attunement practitioner’s motto: “Let love radiate without concern for results.” This does not say “without results.” Love never fails to produce results, one of which is protection from harm.

I trust that you learned something important reading this post. I also hope that you consider seriously the possibility of coming to my workshop in May and experience first hand the value and magic of Attunement with Sacred Sound. Until my next post, 

Here’s to your health and healing,

“Founded On TONE”

DD_Palmer1-father-pof-chiropracticsDaniel David Palmer founded Chiropractic in 1895 when he realigned the cervical spine on his janitor, Harvey Lillard, and restored his hearing.  Dr. Palmer, a magnetic healer, wrote these words on the title page of his first book: “Founded On TONE.” I published my booklet Rediscovering The Soul of Chiropractic in 2007.  In it I wrote these words:

In D.D.’s first book these words appear on the title page: “Founded On Tone.” In the pages that follow he proclaims, almost charismatically, that life is tone in human beings and that tone is health. In his second book, Daniel confides how initially he leaned toward the theory that nerves conveyed the vibrational “Tone” of life, and that spinal aberrations stretched and otherwise stressed the nerve fibers thereby distorting the frequency of that vibrational tone.

“An impulse travels over a nerve by waves known as vibration, similar as a pulse-wave, only more rapid . . . . Nerves, like material substances, are composed of particles, atoms or molecules, which vibrate, oscillate. When nerves are in a normal condition, known as tone—normal tension, normal elasticity and normal renitency [tonicity]—impulses are transmitted by vibration in a normal manner with the usual force . . . . Motor and sensory impulses are transmitted over the nervous system by molecular vibration.” (The Chiropractor 1914)

WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND

Magnetic healing has come around again. I’ve been practicing it since the 1970’s.  We call it “attunement,” a term that has come to be used by Reiki and other energy work healing methodologies.  Basically, we are working with the energetic body and through the energetic body with the physical body.  It is the energetic body that holds the patterns of health and disease that manifest in the physical body.  The principle at work is simple: change the vibration in the energy body and you change the manifestation in the physical body. The ultimate goal is to lift the energetic vibration of the physical body to a level where dissonant patterns of disease cannot manifest but only harmonious patterns of health. 

SOUND HEALING COMES OF AGE

Such words as “TONE” and “dissonant” and “harmonious” imply music and sound.  Sound healing has come of age and has even entered into main-stream medicine.  Of course the majority of sound healers are in the “Alternative” and “New Age” milieu.  I received my certification in sound healing in 2009 at Jonathan Goldman’s Healing Sounds Intensive out of Boulder, Colorado. This is a nine-day workshop intensive that is held every year and draws up to a hundred sound healers from all over the world to participate in a transformative journey into the vibrational world of Sacred Sound. This is only one such sound healing school offering training in this vibrational healing methodology.

THE TONE IS LOVE 

I just returned from an “Energetics of Healing” attunement intensive at Oakwood Retreat Center in Selma, Indiana  and will be flying up to Portland, Oregon this weekend to participate in another attunement intensive entitled “RESONANCE –THE HEART OF ATTUNEMENT.”  There’s another word that relates to music and sound.  Resonance is a principle at work throughout creation.  All of creation resonates to the TONE of Life sounding and resounding throughout the Cosmos. It’s the TONE of LOVE. 

THE PINEAL GATEWAY

Over the years that I’ve been exploring the frequencies of the sacred anatomy of our seven endocrine glands, I’ve noticed that a shift has taken place in the tonal frequency of the energy radiating from the pineal gland located in the center of the brain. That shift has gone a half step up from an F to an F#.  In his wonderful book SACRED SOUND, Ted Andrews writes in his historical account of Sacred Sound’s ancient past . . .

The Chinese healers used “singing stones”–thin flat pieces of jade which would emit various musical tones when struck. One of these tones was designated the kung or great tone of Nature. It corresponds in our own musical scale to the tone of F or F-sharp. The Sufis considered Hu to be the ultimate creative sound. The Tibetans considered the tones F-sharp, A and G to be the three powerful and sacred tones of the world. 

The corresponding color of F# is Violet.  I see a violet light pulsing and contracting to a fine focus in the dark space of my closed eyes when attuning the pineal gland with the Spirit of Love. This light is particularly strong when someone is sharing attunement with me and focusing the current in the area of my pineal gland.

There is an energetic gateway here in this gland that opens up to let in sacred energy from the divine spirit that is incarnate in each and every one.  This is the portal of light through which the angel enters his or her body temple after the temple is complete at the end of the third month of embryonic development.  Incarnation takes place in the womb when the house of being is complete and ready to receive the lord or lady of the house.  It is as well the portal for excarnation and ascension at the end of our earthly journey.  It is where the “silver cord” attaches that leads back to the realms of light.  If you wish to own a quartz crystal bowl, let it be an F-sharp bowl. I highly recommend it. 

Our bodies are founded on TONE. They resonate to the frequency of Love. The frequency of Love is F-sharp in my experience. The harmonic chord of F-sharp is F# A# C#.  If you want a little magic in your life, your health, your spiritual practice, then obtain three quartz crystal bowls that “sing” these three sacred tones. Set them in your meditation space and place them in the morning when you arise and just before bedtime. You will be amazed at how these sacred tones calm and bring focus to your mind as your pineal gland resonates with them.  

Here’s to your health and healing,

The Blessings of Functional Medicine

Tony Pics for SA BookTHE BLESSINGS OF FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

The human body functions much as a temple. Within its hallowed walls dwells the divine spirit that created and maintains it, and which all body-cells serve. A temple typically has columns that hold it up. The columns of the body temple are the functional systems that manage life in the body and facilitate the processes involved in transforming minerals and vital amino acids (vitamins) into the building blocks of the temple. These processes are what comprise our metabolism.

Our metabolism is a twofold creative process that includes the building up (anabolism) and tearing down (catabolism) of the various structures in the body – for one thing to keep them in good repair and working order. It also includes the chemical processing and conversion of foods into energy.

There are ten of these functional systems:
Endocrine System (hormonal glands),
Nervous System (brain, spinal chord & nerves),
Circulatory System (heart and blood vessels),
Respiratory System, (lungs and bronchial)
Lymphatic System, (thymus & lymph glands)
Genitourinary System (includes reproduction)
Digestive System, (liver, stomach, intestines)
Skeletal System, (bones & joints)
Muscular System, (ligaments & muscles)
Integumentary System (skin and fascia).

Cellular Level Health Care

At the macroscopic level, these systems are comprised of organs and glands, arteries and veins, connective tissues and ligaments, muscles and bones, fluids and marrow. At the microscopic level, all of this functional anatomy is comprised of cells, trillions of them, each one a living organism with systems identical in their functions to those in the larger body they comprise. In other words, cells breathe, eat, excrete waste, grow, reproduce and die. The cell is the basic unit of life in the body. As the cells live and die, so does the physical body. It is important, then, to maintaining cellular health and function.

This is essentially what functional medicine is all about. As its self-defining name implies, functional medicine concerns itself with the function of cells, organs and systems in the body, and the means and methods by which abnormal function may be normalized. Function is at the core of every condition known to medical science. There is not one disease, for example, that does not have at its root cause the failure of one or more organs and/or systems to function normally. Therefore, it follows logically, as well as clinically, that the correction of malfunction leads to healing and recovery.

This is not merely theory. It has been proven out over and over again in clinical settings throughout the civilized world where the natural approach of functional medicine is being used in the treatment of the whole person and not merely the disease. Chiropractic and clinical nutrition lead the way in the field of functional medicine.

Allopathic & Functional Medicine’s Forte

The treatment of disease is the forte of allopathic medicine, which uses drugs and surgery to intervene in the disease process and to relieve its painful symptoms. The restoration of function, and therefore of health, is the forte of functional medicine, which uses natural forces to support the healing process and thereby address the cause of disease. Both bestow their unique blessings, especially when and where they are allowed to work together. Our work is all about removing interferences to normal function in the body.

Wholistic Health Care

Wholistic health care concerns itself with the whole person and the various factors that go into manifesting healthy function in the body. For example, Chiropractic concerns itself with the correction of nerve impingement in the spine to free up the nerve supply essential to normal communication between the brain and the body’s parts and, therefore, normal function. Clinical Nutrition addresses the balancing of blood and body chemistry, both of which are essential to normal function. Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique (BEST) helps to restore normal function in the body as well as in the mind by removing interferences in the sub-conscious mind and feeling realm in the form of memories of past trauma. These memories can actually be “erased” so that they no longer trigger defensive emotional reactions that keep a person’s physical body in a stress response mode.  In a stress-response mode, the body cannot heal itself nor grow its health.

So, we can see how wholistic (or holistic) health care is more about treating the whole person than about treating disease and pain with “alternative medicine.”  We are more than vitamins and minerals, muscles and bones, organs and blood vessels. We are whole persons. 

Energy Medicine

A whole person is made up of spirit and matter.  The matter of our bodies is shaped and maintained by spirit, namely the spirit of Life.  In Chiropractic philosophy we call this spirit Innate Intelligence and see it as a part of Universal Intelligence (God, if you prefer).  The Innate Intelligence of the body runs the whole show without the input of our educated intelligence, but not without its cooperation.  It knows exactly what’s going on in the body at all times, including what it needs in the way of external help and assistance in correcting deficiencies and structural damage and mis-alignments (such as in the joints and spinal column).  We have learned how to access this information through Kinesology (muscle testing). This in Energy Medicine at its practical best.

Contact Reflex Analysis (CRA)

Contact Reflex Analysis, System Strength Analysis, Nutritional Response Analysis are all energetic methods of “reading” the body’s systems and communicating with its Innate Intelligence, which is more than willing to share with the practitioner information that will guide him in determining an appropriate approach to resolving health issues. This is a non-invasive procedure that is a hundred percent accurate.  I’ve been using CRA for many years and have never found it to be inaccurate.  It not only lets me know what to do but also in what order of priority.  It is truly a gift from God.  There is no question one cannot obtain an accurate answers to with muscle testing when one’s intentions are right and honorable.

Attunement — Vibrational Healing

I offer an energy-healing service called Attunement.  Although Attunement is not a healthcare modality as chiropractic and clinical nutrition are, it does help mend, clarify, and enrich the connecting substance of pneumaplasm with our core spirit and thereby bring about peace, order and harmony within. When body, mind, heart and spirit are functioning harmoniously together, there is peace and harmony in the physical body. In a climate of peace and harmony, the cells of the body are able to function without disruption and interference. This essentially is what vibrational healing brings to the health care field. Everything we do in our service is done for the sole purpose of restoring normal function in the body so the body can heal itself.

How Vitamins Support Function

Vitamin A – supports the function of the eyes and immune system (infection control), the gums and nervous system, and the healing of skin. It’s necessary to cell metabolism, respiration and blood cell generation (platelets).

Vitamin B – supports the function of the heart and blood vascular system, the adrenal glands, the pancreas in producing insulin and digestive juices, and the nervous system. It stimulates and promotes appetite and normal digestion, promotes growth and vigor, and is necessary for carbohydrate metabolism and cell respiration, for normal pregnancy and lactation, and in maintaining muscle tonus.

Vitamin C – supports the function of the adrenal glands, the connective tissue, and the bones. Essential to health and integrity of endothelial tissues (raises resistance to infections), proper development of teeth, to oxygen metabolism, and to blood cell regeneration. It also maintains proper blood-clotting time.

Vitamin D – supports bone regeneration. Essential to proper mineral metabolism; absorption from alimentary tract, utilization and excretion of calcium and phosphorus. Necessary to successful pregnancy and lactation; for normalizing and reducing time of labor; to maintain blood platelets at normal level; to normal respiratory function. Maintains bone growth, muscle tonus and increases strength of capillaries.

Vitamin E – supports the skin, endocrine system (pituitary), heart, and sex-hormone production. Necessary to prevent irreparable sterility in male. Necessary to maintain mental alertness, growth and vigor. Possibly to prevent carcinoma. Necessary to resistance to infections.

Vitamin F – (Essential Fatty Acids) transports calcium from the blood into bones and tissues; necessary to cell respiration, hair health, and to brain function; supports prostate; converts sunlight into Vitamin D in skin.

Vitamin G – is one of the Vitamin B factors and supports circulation and brain function. Necessary to growth and development and cell respiration. As a growth stimulus, promotes normal repair processes and thereby delays senility. Necessary to blood regeneration.

Vitamin K – is not a single nutrient, but the name given to a group of vitamins of similar composition. The two main groups of vitamin K that occur naturally are vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) and K2 (menaquinone). K1 is found in many vegetables and K2 is produced by bacteria. It is more popularly known as a blood coagulant.  However, it appears vitamin K, and vitamin K as MK-7 in particular, plays an important role in keeping calcium in the bones and out of the arteries. (Dr. Susan E. Brown, PhD – see her article for important information about Vitamin K)

Note: Standard Process product labels prefix the vitamin with the word “Cataplex,” as in Cataplex A. This is due to the fact that vitamins do not stand alone in foods but are accompanied by complex co-factors that facilitate their function and preserve their integrity.  Commercially processed supplements do not afford these same benefits. This is why I use Standard Process wholefood supplements.

How Minerals Support Function

There are 12 organic minerals and some 72 trace mineral that support the function of vitamins and the production of enzymes in the body. They also conduct energy into and throughout the body.

Calcium – supports the bones and teeth, helps with blood coagulation, reduces neuromuscular irritability, facilitates and provides fuel for muscle contraction and nerve conduction in the heart muscles.

Magnesium – supports tooth formation, enzyme activation, nerve conduction, and muscle lubrication.

Sodium – plays a large role in acid-base balance, osmotic pressure, blood pH, muscle contractility and nerve transmission.

Potassium – plays a role in muscle activity, nerve transmission, intracellular acid-base balance and water retention, and energy management. It assists in escorting glucose into muscle cells for energy.

Phosphorus – in closely associated with Calcium and its functions with bone and teeth formation. It is used in establishing and maintaining acid-base balance, is a component of nucleic acids and is involved in energy production.

Iron – assists in the formation of hemoglobin and myoglobin, contributes to the production of certain enzymes and iron-sulphur proteins.

Fluorine – is used in bone and tooth formation. Chlorine – is used in acid-base balance, osmotic pressure, blood pH and kidney function.

Silica – plays a role in the alchemical production of bone tissue through a process of “biological transmutation.” It may also play a role in memory storage, similar to that of the silica microchip in the computer.

Manganese – is essential to the function of the Pituitary, the tone of ligaments and cartilage, and plays a component part in the makeup of certain enzymes.

Sulphur – is an antibiotic that also helps with joint motility.
Iodine – is essential to the production of thyroid hormones for metabolism, growth and development.

The seventy-two or more trace minerals play empowering roles in the balancing of body chemistry, especially with the hormones. Just to site a few:

Selenium, found in wheat germ oil, plays a key role as part of the Vitamin E complex in the cardiovascular system.

Chromium promotes the utilization of glucose by the muscle cells, thereby supporting the glucose tolerance factor in the bloodstream.

Molybdenum is a transitional metal that forms oxides and is a component of a coenzyme essential to the activity of enzymes involved in preventing toxic levels of sulfite, xanthine and aldehyde (such as formaldehyde) in the blood stream.

Gold is essential to balanced and clear mental function. Silver is a protective element against pathogens, such as harmful bacteria and viruses.

Levels and Ratios Critical

These elements of the mineral kingdom are not only present in a healthy body, their levels and ratios to one another are critical to maintaining healthy function, strength and vitality in the body. Calcium is in critical ratio to Phosphorus, Magnesium and Potassium; Sodium is balanced by Potassium; Copper and Zinc need to be in balanced ratio, as well as Sodium and Magnesium, Copper and Iron. The degree to which these minerals are present in their proper levels and ratios, the body is healthy. To the degree they are not, the body is sick and dying.

While Copper intensifies cellular activity, activating estrogen in cell proliferation, Zinc, which activates progesterone and testosterone, cools it down. The body contains two to three grams of Zinc, found mainly in bones, teeth, hair, skin, the liver, muscle, leukocytes and in the testes. It plays a role in skin integrity, enzymes, wound healing and growth.

Whole Food Supplements Best – Function the Key Factor

Seeing as how vitamins and minerals  depend on one another for balance and orderly function, it becomes obvious that they are best taken into the body in whole-food form and not as isolated fractions, whether “natural” or synthetic, in “high potency” commercially prepared supplements.  They’re not “natural” if they are not part of their natural environment where they can best function, and are essentially and functionally drugs as they are designed to stimulate or suppress rather than nourish. As such they really should be under the control of a regulatory agency and prescribed and administered by licensed healthcare professionals.

Therapeutic foods, such as those Standard Process provide practitioners, are best administered by a licensed healthcare practitioner.  SP’s products can only be obtained in this manner. ❧

Pineal Attunement with Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls

F sharp quartz crystal bowl with C sharp Tibetan bowl mane in Napal

F sharp quartz crystal bowl with C sharp Tibetan bowl made in Napal

My F sharp eight-inch quartz crystal bowl arrived a few days ago and its tone is exquisite – so fine and pure.  The high frequency vibration intensifies the energy field around the pineal gland.  I can feel it throbbing in the center of my brain.  Played with my C sharp Tibetan bowl, together they create a perfect fifth harmony (do – sol). Then, when I add the deeper tone of my 16″ A sharp quartz crystal bowl, the triad harmony (F# do,  A# mi,  C# sol) is healing and heavenly.  Click this link to listen to the tones on Facebook.  See where the tones resonate in your body.  I venture to say that everyone who listens to this tone will feel it resonating in the center of their head.

(Caution: the tones may cause a pressure in your head, so turn down your computer’s volume before playing the clip.  The pressure may simply be an indication that your pineal gland is either closed or crystalized with fluoride. If so, it may well be possible to break up the crystals with this frequency.)

There’s something very magical about quartz crystal bowls.  It is said that their tones resonate the human vocal chords.  I believe it, because my voice wants to sing with them every time I play them.

In her wonderful book Travelling the Sacred Sound Current, sacred chant master Deborah Van Dyke writes about different levels of listening and of hearing. (You can visit her Facebook page at the above link.)

A more advanced state of hearing occurs when we listen not only with our ears, but with our whole being. As a woman once describing her experience with crystal bowls aptly put it: ‘The sound is amazing, it turns my whole body into an Ear!’

I think that everyone should have a quartz crystal bowl to play and sing with.  We had thirteen bowls to play with during our Attunement with Sacred Sound workshop intensives at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado — thanks to a very generous lady who loaned us her bowls. The main theme of the workshop is the use of sound as a carrier wave for the healing current of spirit. I demonstrate in the workshops how one can sing into the bowl their “sad song” to release ill feelings about one’s illness or life circumstance. While singing one’s song, healing currents are released as well over the sound waves, drawn from within the person, even while singing one’s sad song.  Here’s an excerpt from my workshop manual, soon to be published:

TONING TO RESOLVE DISSONANT ENERGY  

Sound is a natural carrier wave for all spirits.  It can be used to release – or resolve – dissonant spirits as well.  The quartz crystal bowl is an excellent tool for this kind of release and resolution.

            Any bowl can be used – preferably the heart chakra F bowl. Or, one may explore and discover one’s own resonant pitch and then purchase a quartz crystal bowl tuned to one’s unique resonant pitch. Having one’s own bowl is an investment in one’s heart health.

            First get in touch with the dissonant feeling inside.  Begin giving it sound, even though it’s but a grunt or a moan.  Then start playing your bowl while grunting or moaning.  Get it all out before you start clarifying your toning in harmony with the bowl.  Once you have found resonance with the bowl, play and sing for a bit having fun with your creation.

            Renown oncologist, Dr. Mitchell L. Gaynor, uses the quartz crystal bowl this way with his cancer patients with remarkable success.  In his captivating and deeply inspiring book, Sounds of Healing – a must-read for practitioners of sound-healing – he writes:

I’m convinced that physical recovery cannot occur unless we acknowledge our constricted nature and boldly strike out beyond their borders to discover our true, unencumbered selves.  

Much like a shaman himself, Dr. Gaynor points to the wisdom of the ancients as a model for modern medicine:

Yet today doctors generally have as little interest in the ancient model of a healing partnership as they do in the notion of using sound, either by itself or with meditation, to create a holistic recovery process that touches mind, body, and soul.  The shamans understood that music, song, and dance are inextricably linked, and all of them require varying degrees of mental and physical flexibility.  I see the interplay and balance required to make music as a reflection of the harmonious interaction of the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems in a healthy body.  Rudolph Steiner, the German educator and philosopher, compared physical illness to an untuned piano.  Imagine, then, the sense of empowerment to be gained from using sound—whether emanations from a singing bowl, your own voice, a flute, drum, or some other musical instrument—to create a tuning device that enables you to be both the healer and the healed.  Shamans have known this for centuries; we may just now be learning the lesson. 

Dr. Gaynor has his patients create their own unique songs while singing into their bowls as they play them. The therapeutic effect is profound. Here’s a link to a website where you can purchase a quartz crystal bowl: Crystal Tones.

Here’s to your Sound Health. 🙂

Seven Glands for Seven Spirits, Part 4: Purification and the Thymus Gland

Life flows from above, down, inside, out, like this cool, clear mountain stream.

I am the Spirit of Purification

I protect the life and this temple from harm

I bring heaven and earth together as one

I give assurance to my world that all is well

THE “ANGELIC GLAND” OF THE THYMUS 

Young Thymus Gland

This graphic by artist David Stefaniak depicts the young thymus gland inside the upper chest cavity. (Click on it to enlarge) Variously called the “angelic gland” in Gray’s Anatomy, the thymus is rather large up until about the age of puberty when it shrinks allowing the guileless child to lose its angelic quality as it matures so that it can live in the coarser “fallen” world without being crushed.

The T cells of the thymus gland migrate to the marrow of the long bones where they will perform their roles ruthlessly defending the body temple from invaders up until the “golden years” (around age 70) when they migrate back to the chest to reconstitute the thymus gland.  Shakespeare poetically describes this “sixth age” of man as the age of “second childishness and mere oblivion.  Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.”  Everything, that is, except sweet memories of years gone by, some perhaps not so sweet.  The elderly regain that golden glow of childhood as their carefree spirit shines through their countenance once again and they return to their childlike innocence and playfulness, coupled with a certain gained sense of assurance about who they are and why they are here.    

Assurance is the gift of the Spirit of Purification given freely through the Thymus gland, a gift that we would do well to receive and nourish for ourselves, as well as accommodate in our elders rather than deprive them of their usefulness as wisdom bearers for the young.  Young people belong with the elderly, and in some cultures this is their traditional way of life.  Assurance comes through purity of heart, and the heart is purified by love burning through it.  For one to reach the Golden Years with a purified heart—or any period during spiritual maturity—is a wonderful blessing, for the pure in heart see God in everyone and everything.   

KEEPING THE TEMPLE CLEAN AND NOURISHED

The Thymus  gland—a large, flat grayish structure located just behind the sternum (breastbone) and in front of the heart, like a shield protecting this vital organ—plays a key role in the process of distributing nutrients and elimination toxins.  Here is the heart of what is referred to as the “immune system,” situated at about the level of the paps on a man’s chest.  In the context and order of the frequencies in the light spectrum, it would radiate a wavelength of yellow-gold with a vibratory pitch correlating with C Natural.  

[Note: The Heart Chakra resonates to the musical pitch of F Natural. The musical pitch C is the fifth harmonic in the F Major chord (F A C). In my attunement with sacred sound service I use this chord to provide a harmonic wave of sound to carry the healing current of love in balancing this sacred energy center. Playing the F quartz crystal bowl over the chest affords a profound and deep sense of peace and helps to deepen one’s awareness of love’s presence in the heart.] 

In the Book of Revelation, John describes the One in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks as being “…girt about the paps with a golden girdle.”   This area would include the entire upper thorax contained within the rib cage—the lungs, the heart, the thymus and spleen, and the solar plexus.   This entire section of the anatomy is taken up with activities relating to circulation, purification and ascension.  The golden glow of love fills this area with substance so that these activities are carried out as gently and painlessly as possible.

The Thymus accomplishes its tasks largely by way of the lymphatic system. The function of the lymphatic system is to pick up the excess fluid and metabolic waste between the cells and tissues, destroy what does not belong in the body and put it all back into circulation through the bloodstream. Much like a cleanup crew on a construction site, lymph brings building blocks of nutrients to the cells and distributes lymphocytes (white blood cells) throughout the body to destroy pathogens as it sweeps up and carries away the metabolic waste. There are some 75 million on these lymphocytes at work among the approximately 75 trillion cells in the body temple.   Having no pump to move it, as does the bloodstream, lymphatic fluid depends on the movement of muscles for its circulation.  Exercise, especially brisk walking and rebounding, helps to move this fluid around throughout the body.

IMMUNE ALLIANCE

The Thymus gland is the control center for the sizable electromagnetic energy of the heart. It is with this energy field that the body maintains its integrity and protective hedge. Although we speak of an “immune system,” the reality is that the body does not have an immune system in as much as it is an immune system in its functional totality, considering the vast distribution of lymphocytes throughout the body. Systems such as the skeletal, respiratory, reproductive, endocrine, central nervous system, and others are complete functioning systems with a clear set of organs and responses. Our “immune system” may best be described as an immune alliance between various systems and organs which, when coordinated by the brain, give an immune response to the presence of any and all non-self elements and associated dis-ease factors that are not a natural part of the internal landscape of the body.

This immune alliance is composed of the thymus gland, which develops the immature lymphocytes ; the spleen which produces antibodies and which includes the lymphatic and blood circulatory systems; the long bones of the skeletal system which contain bone-marrow that gives birth to leukocytes (white blood cells). Then there are the organs of the digestive system: the stomach and pancreas, which make Hydrochloric acid and enzymes that destroy ingested parasites and carcinogens, the intestinal flora which destroy pathogenic microbes and manufacture B12, and the liver which detoxifies the blood and produces enzymes that break down dead tissue cells and repair those that are damaged. So when I speak of the “immune system,” it is to this alliance that I am referring and not to some specific system in the body. (Excerpted and adapted from Sacred Anatomy)

THE SPIRIT OF PURIFICATION IN THE FOURTH DIMENSION

And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh an abomination or maketh a lie…. (Rev. 21:27)  

These words from Revelation refer to the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, that comes down from God out of Heaven.  The human temple of the Living God was designed to be the means by which the Holy City and New Jerusalem should come into the world.  The words “City” and “Jerusalem” here stand for a state of consciousness.  The seat of consciousness in the body temple resides in the brain. Therefore, the brain was designed to be well protected by the Spirit of Purification which dwells with the Thymus gland and employs the immune system of the body temple to keep toxins from entering the inner sanctum of the brain.  Here in the cranium, as we saw in the first two parts of this series, is where the Spirit of Love and the Spirit of the Womb work their sacred alchemy through the Pineal and Pituitary glands bringing forth the Spirit of Life through the Thyroid gland in the throat. The Thymus gland is the fourth of the seven endocrine glands.

This was the original divine design from the beginning: that no defilement, abomination or lie should enter the holiest place in the body temple. That design, of course, has been thwarted—the integrity of the inner sanctum compromised—by the self-serving human ego that has usurped the throne of deity in the human temple. What we now have in the Body of Mankind is an immune system that has been weakened and compromised by the absence of love in human expression and activity.  Fear has chronically infected the human heart shutting down the Body’s immune system. Disease and death are everywhere at hand. Nevertheless, the Divine Design remains, as the Creator stays with his creation for as long as it exists and continues to make love available to it. Fear needs to be cast out of the heart and soul of Man. Only by perfect love can this be accomplished. 

Perfect love is a fire that burns away the bonds holding the heart a prisoner to fear.  Fear is a darkness.  It is nothing.  It is the absence of light.  It is faith in evil. Fear has cast a shadow of disease and death throughout the third dimension of the material world where the human species hangs by a thread over the abyss of impending extinction.  

But the Earth has not been detained in its renewal and transition into the fourth dimension presently underway.  Ascension is in progress—for the Earth and for Mankind.  The fourth dimension is characterized by the purifying and transforming fire of love. It is where the Spirit of Purification wields the flaming sword that keeps the way to the Tree of Life in the fifth dimension, and no soul can get past this Angel and partake of the fruit of the Tree of Life without letting go of fear and embracing Love utterly and without reservation.  

Every soul is important to the larger scheme of things and is loved more than anyone can imagine.  You are loved beyond your wildest dreams.  Let you love light shine without condition or concern to be loved in return.  It is we who are in need of returning love to the One who has loved us first and from all eternity with a greater love than we could every muster in our human hearts.

GOLDEN LIGHT OF LOVE 

The Menorah
Seven Golden Candlesticks

“And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; and in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.” (Rev. 1: 12)

The Spirit of Purification works at this fourth vibratory level in the body temple to guard the sacred space of the upper region in the cranium and keep anything from entering here that would defile or in any way hurt this sanctum. The golden essence of love’s light is constantly intensified and clarified in order to assure a pure-hearted expression of creative power. Thus the color gold was seen by John in the region of the paps of this one like unto the Son of man.

Uranda closes Lesson Forty-two in his Steps to Mastership with these reassuring words:

“And girt about the paps with a golden girdle.” And He is girt about the MIDDLE PART OF HIS BEING with a Golden Girdle, the Golden Girdle of PERFECT SOUL EXPRESSION which surrounds and fills the vital parts of Being. The Solar Center, which is the throne of so-called subconscious mind; the Heart, the throne of all feeling and emotion; the Lungs, the throne of Spirit cleansing and Life-giving—ALL are GIRT ABOUT with the PERFECT BEING OF OUR FATHER, the MASTER-SELF WITHIN. Such must be the state of those who would enter in and SEE the glories of Fourth Plane Being. Meditate upon these revelations and let them fill thy Life and Light thy Way, that thy attainment may be sure.”

The only thing standing in the way of attainment in Fourth Plane Being is the veil of the heart which connects the third level of being with the fourth. This veil has become laden with the residue of past experiences, both individual and collective, so that it has taken on a dense, opaque texture and consistency. To enter in here this veil must be pierced—or, as in the Master Jesus’ experience, “rent in twain,” through forgiveness and utter abandon to the will of the Father. He left the third and entered into the fourth dimension of being, passing through the veil of the collective impure heart. But he didn’t stop there.  He went all the way to his Father in the Seventh Heaven. Waiting on the other side of the veil, in the fourth dimension, is the incarnate angel, the One I Am, standing in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks, one’s true identity. 

By the light of this center in the Fourth Plane I am able to know with assurance who I am and what my purpose is on earth. I know myself as an angel, an emissary of heaven’s light, who has come on earth to bring a special gift. That gift is none other than my Self, a gift that I alone can bring. Assurance in this is the gift of the Spirit of Purification. (Excerpted and adapted from Sacred Anatomy)

The role of the Thymus gland and the immune system in the body temple is huge and complex, to say the least—both physically and spiritually.  When I am as ruthless as my immune system in tagging and eliminating all non-self thoughts and feelings from my mind and heart, those things that are not true to the truth of love, my life is much more simple and peaceful as my awareness of who I really am is kept clear and sure.  I will continue along these lines in my next post.  Until then, 

To your health and healing,

Seven Glands for Seven Spirits, Part 3: Life and the Thyroid Gland

Green is the dominant color in the rainbow spectrum

In the last two posts we considered the vibrational essences at work behind and through the Pineal Body, or gland, and the Pituitary gland.  We referred to these essences as spirits. For the Pineal Body, or gland, we have the Spirit of Love. For the Pituitary gland, the Spirit of the Womb. In this post I offer a meditation on the spiritual essences behind and at play in and through the Thyroid gland.  The essential nature and character of that essence is Life itself.

THE SPIRIT OF LIFE

Here is the third verse of my poem The Seven Spirits of Love:

I am the Spirit of Life

I bring radiance to my world

I am born anew in each moment

For I am birthless, deathless, and eternally the same

I am the life of my world.

Another name for the Spirit of the Womb is the Spirit of Truth. When we consider the function of the physical womb, which provides the container for the developing embryo wherein the control factors essential to growing a living human form can be put in place, and the intricate design of life for this form can be safely and accurately transmitted and implemented, Truth is an apt name for this Spirit at work in the realm of form—and not just any “truth,” but the truth for the human form.  For that matter, the unique truth for all living forms that come through the Womb of the Great Mother in all Her glorious and diverse manifestations of Love in action, an action that brings forth life eternal on this earth.  Forms come and go, but life eternally abides. Life is what this entire planet is all about, and we are wise to pay it and its myriad forms due homage and respect lest we find our species and our entire world without it, and without form, one day.

OUR SPIRITUAL GODPARENTS

Life is fathered by Love (Pineal), conceived and nurtured in the Womb by the Spirit of Truth (Pituitary), and given birth moment by moment by the miraculous and mysterious workings of Spirit in and through the Thyroid Gland. This is how we are born as spirit beings into the material world.  Our spiritual bodies are nourished and revitalized by spirit working through these sacred endocrine centers.  These are our spiritual Godparents. In the Spirit of Love, the Spirit of the Womb, and the Spirit of Life, we are truly brothers and sisters all.  

Thyroid Gland

The Thyroid gland provides the vibrational terrain through which the Spirit of Life works its radiant magic upon the cells of the body, energizing them with vibrancy. Resembling a butterfly, it is comprised of two lobes situated on either side of the larynx, or voice box, with four to eight small brownish-red parathyroid glands embedded in its tissues behind it.

Parathyroid glands

It seems accurate to say that this vital energy center plays a key role in setting the tone for the sound of the voice when we speak or sing. If we consider sound as a carrier wave for spirit conveying encoded information, we could see how spoken words convey the creative messages of spirit which shape and color our worlds according to their vibratory essences. In Genesis, for instance, we have the phrase “And God said, ‘Let there be light.’” Sound was the very first means by which the spirit of God “moved upon the face of waters” in creating this world. 

The movement of the spirit of God upon the face of the waters of consciousness produces a pulse. That pulse becomes a series of beats, which then becomes a wave, which becomes a tone, and the tone becomes the creative word which creates light, out of which all creation springs forth.  So it is with our own creative processes. A creative pulse at the core of our hearts becomes a wave of thought that carries a vibrational tone articulated by words which convey information that organizes and arranges the matter that creates our worlds.

THE COLOR GREEN AND THE NUMBER 5

Life comes from above down inside and out. The horizontal line at the top of the number 5 represents heaven; the short line coming down represents movement downward; the curve represents the creative process or cycle which is open to release life out into creation. 

In numerology, the number 5 is the symbol for Life. The fifth and dominant color in the light spectrum is green, and the color green correlates with the vibrational frequency of the Thyroid.  Green is the dominant color of the natural world of trees and grass.  Green is also the color of our money, which aptly represents the life force we share between us in our exchange of goods and our services to one another and to the Whole. The Thyroid is the fifth endocrine gland of seven and is positioned at the Golden Mean (.618) of the distance from the first and the last of the endocrine glands, the position of our voice as well.  

The musical pitches of green range between C# and D.  In terms of the Golden Mean, C# is the fifth pitch in the chromatic scale of thirteen notes, which include both the white and the black keys on the piano.  Five is at the Golden Mean between one and thirteen.  In my attunement with sacred sound work I’ve found the G Major chord (G-B-D) to resonate the Thyroid energy center and the Throat Chakra.  It’s more a matter of resonance than nailing down a specific “note” for these essences. There are some 70 shades, for example, in the color green. 

 All this to say the Thyroid is the Divine Mean point of the endocrine system. It is where heaven touches earth, where the infinite realm of spirit divine touches into the finite realm of the human form. It is where spirit takes on flesh and continues to imbue it with Life.

THYROID HORMONES 

The hormonal secretions of the Thyroid and their functions are varied and involve stimulating hormones (TSH) produced in the Pituitary gland. From the Pituitary, the Thyroid receives thyrotrophin, a hormone precursor that enables the production of thyroid hormonal secretions, such as thyroxine and calcitonin.   Thyroxine affects the growth rate and metabolism of all the body cells.  Calcitonin assists the parathyroid hormones and Vitamin D in lowering blood-calcium levels by enhancing cellular uptake, kidney function, and bone formation.  The mineral iodine plays a functional role as well in many organic and glandular processes regulated by the Thyroid gland, including the metabolism of calcium, the rate and rhythm of the heart beat, and the uptake of water by the kidneys, just to name a few well-known functions regulated by the Thyroid. 

The liver plays an important role here as well.   The Thyroid gland makes the T3 hormone out of thyronine—the inactive hormone of the Thyroid stored in the liver—at a proportion of twenty percent, and thyroxine, T4—the active hormone of the Thyroid—at the proportion of eighty percent.  The storage form is converted into an active form in the liver, so it is important that the liver be functioning up to par for optimal thyroid hormone production and action in the body-tissues. 

Life charges the cells of the body with vibrancy—the bones to be strong with calcium,  the heart muscles to pump blood rhythmically through the body, the brain for clear and calm thinking, the kidneys to pick up excess fluids and cleanse the blood stream of toxic waste, such as uric acid and other impurities and toxins.  Besides regulating metabolism and growth, thyroxine increases oxidation, promotes protein, carbohydrate and fat metabolism for energy, and influences the regulation of body temperature.  In a word, the Thyroid hormones bring radiance to the body temple.   (Excerpted from my book Sacred Anatomy)

In my next post in this series we will look at the purifying function of the Thymus gland, the brain of the immune system. So stay tuned.  Until then, here’s to your health and healing.
