Every single mammal on the planet will naturally do a fast when they become sick or injured.
If the digestive system is in constant use it takes a minimum of 60 to 75% of our energy to do it’s job! When you fast all that energy is freed up to be used in healing and repairing.
The body also proliferates stem cells during a fast that have the ability to regenerate damaged and weak tissue anywhere in the body according to USC (University of Southern California).
My companion of 11 years, a Staffy Cross ( Yoko ), was suffering from arthritis and walking poorly. A little stiff and slow. Her cure came by accident.
I was camping in the bush near Esperance in WA and she disappeared. We looked for a day and couldn't find her. We put notices up everywhere and were feeling very sad. Just when we thought all was lost, 3 1/2 days later a car drove up to our site and out jumps Yoko…she had found a spring and was there for the whole time. Fasting and drinking spring water.
I immediately noticed her running and feeling very lively . At first I put it down to her initial joy at finding home but Yoko lived on for another 4 years without the pain and in full movement. It was a lesson I've never forgotten. Thank you Yoko.
The Scientific American states: (http://www.scientificamerican.com/…/how-intermittent-fasti…/)
“Studies have shown that reducing typical calorie consumption, usually by 30 to 40 percent, extends life span by a third or more in many animals, including nematodes, fruit flies and rodents.”
Many studies have concluded that a combination of fasting and/or intermittent fasting promotes a healthier, and longer life.
The Peter Hess Institute describes sound massage this way:
"A stone falling into a pond creates concentric waves spread over the entire pond. Each molecule of water is put into motion in this way. Something similar happens with the sound massage inside your body, which consists of 75% water. The soothing vibrations are transmitted to the body and from there spread in concentric waves.. The result is a soothing massage for each of the 100 trillion cells in the body. A cellular massage.
Sound Heals Broken Bones!
I first came across the power of sound to heal in the 80's through the power of song incarnate and Bahajans. Later as science stepped up its research I came across an article by Anthony Cartledge exposing the power of Bio Acoustics.It talked about the extraordinary gift of Sharry Edwards who discovered that "every substance, structure or process in the body has its own specific vibration, and replacing any missing or stressed frequencies would provide the body the means to heal."
In fact Sharry was put to the test when her 19 year old son Jessie shattered his knee cap into 35 pieces in 1991.
Sharry installed a device in Jessies hospital room to deliver the necessary tones at audible sound levels to his body and his reaction was immediate. The pain alleviated immediately and something extraordinary was occurring: the kneecap was growing back. Jessie was walking without braces two months later. Fully recovered !!
Confronted with this bizarre phenomenon the surgeons , who said he would be crippled for life, could only explain the growth as calcium deposit which just happened to be in the shape of kneecap. Its such a pity that the medical institutions are so slow in catching on to new discoveries.
I had my first reading with Les in 1997 and it was amazingly accurate. He saw that I would be working as a sound healer and be involved with a strange and rare instrument that was bowl like, had incredibly powerful energy but like nothing he had ever seen or heard of before. I researched for weeks, and even experimented with creating bowl like instruments but came up with nothing.
However, verification came 8 years later when I fell in love with Chiho. I didn't know at the time that she played the "Crystal Armonica," a rare and powerful instrument of 30 pure quartz crystal bowls . Our sound healing journey together had begun.
Les has given readings to many of my friends, all of which come away with many verifications of relatives who have messages. Chiho and I also recently worked with Les on his " Messages with Angles" tour and had a great time, witnessing so many people receiving very accurate information.
On August 14th Les will be with us here at Harmonic Earth Sanctuary to do his thing again! Im so thrilled and know he won't disappoint. Please come and join us. Chiho and I will be conducting a short sound healing to get the vibes flowing and then Les will follow. Call on 0424594549 if you want to book in. It was a full house last time so don't hesitate!
We have offered our music and sound in the past for intellectually challenged people in Australia and were hoping to do some work like this in Bali.
In the past we looked for schools and institutions that we could play music for but didn't succeed.
This time we were guided to the Sari Hati school by our friend for intellectually challenged children and were able to conduct three music classes.
The school is run by donations and has been going for 20 years.
The founder, Adid, happened to be there as they were doing a presentation for Mastercard and other interested sponsors. Originally they were funded by Star of Hope from the Ukraine. Thre is always difficulty with funding. The bus is need of repair and the dedicated staff and volunteers work very hard.
Adid is also the owner of the very popular "Sari Organic Cafe" and markets. There is a lot of interest in organics in Ubud with many cafes.
We went again over the next three Mondays at 11am to conduct the class on our own.
The kids were a delightful group of all ages and into adulthood. We sang songs, played
music , did action games and even did a small sound journey with them. After each session we were welcomed to share lunch with everyone.
It was such a friendly, and warm environment.
Without such schools these children are often left, hidden away at home, or as one child, left to survive on the streets. The school has been teaching them to speak and communicate and giving them selfworth and happiness.
Well here we are in Bali.
Its been a fantastic time as we have had four sound healing sessions at the Yoga Barn and other venues with our friend Yasu.
Yasu plays crystal & samadhi bowls and various flutes from his heart. He has been holding sound meditation in Bali for two years. We met him on our last visit a year and a half ago.
Together we have completed sound sessions at three venues and its' been an absolutely exciting time. It has been a surprise at how natural and easy it is to play with Yasu. We have formed a strong bond.
We also appeared as special guests for White Star and Shervin on Wednesday evening at the Yoga Barn. The room was full and Chiho transfixed everyone with the magic of the Crystal Armonica.
What an amazing evening....!!
The night was so full of love and good vibes...We are still the warm energy from that night...
We presented the various songs from the latest Armonica Album "Nomad Dream" as well as the sound journey that lulled everyone into a deep sense of relaxation and love. After a little break, we sang Kirtan and the room filled with the harmonious voices of everyone and created a most magical night of well being.
Chiho was the central figure for the evening as Phil was still unable to sing or even talk !!!
She proved to be quite charismatic and cracked a couple of jokes which placed everyone in a relaxed state.
Assisting Chiho were our friends, Gemma, Elliot, Joe and of course Gurpreet on Tabla. Together they used voice, didj, flute and percussion that culminated in a magical evening of sounds.
We are so thankful to all of you who were there.
Your ongoing support has been very encouraging for us and we value you greatly.
Im sure the room was full of love ladened of Orbs...
We had a precious opportunity to play music with world -famous Indian classical musicians,
Kumar & Debojyoti Bose.
They are both playing music all over the world. Kumar has played with Ravi shankar (for 10 years), George Harrison, and many well known musicians at Carnegie Hall, Buckingham Palace, etc.
We just had a wonderful weekend at Denmark Festival of Voice!!
People in Denmark really love singing.....and they enjoyed singing kirtan in our workshop very much.
And the news of the Crystal Armonica spread by mouth and many people stopped to talk with us. We are happy to have received so many positive comments.
We were asked to come back to Denmark by many people, and have been already offered to have a concert at the Steiner school in Denmark through a beautiful crystal shop - The Sacred Tree!! (thanks!)
Thanks everyone, thanks Denmark !!
Beautiful old wooden church - St. Leonard's Church.
We gave a workshop "Sound for Health" and had a performance here.
