You’ve opened my eyes this evening Joanna, thank you. Your talk made me feel like I was re-discovering something I’d held in my consciousness before, perhaps even in another life. Now I’m excited about the idea of adding sound and vibration to my meditations, so I’m off to find just the right singing bowl for me. Thanks for the inspiration!
A vibratory frequencies can hold what is now but not what will come or what has been. Truly positive sounds only effect only positive matter that is open to the truth. Harmonic frequencies that have irregular patterns are neither good nor bad just unique and interesting best used for valuable growth and progress. Mixing opposite sounds can solve all the known problems while together making new forms of thoughts and ideas.
Those water crystal pictures were dismissed as quackery. The guy took multiple photos, and then he "selected" the photo he deemed correct. In other words, he choose a good photo for positive words or sounds. He choose a bad photo for negative words or sounds. Hardly science. I do like listening to her accent, except when she says baroque.
So how do I get started? Begin with positive affirmations daily and listening to different frequencies? What frequencies do you recommend? I just bought two singing bowls and I’ve been trying to just ring them and make them sing while closing my eyes and swaying as though I’m aligning with the sound waves. Sound silly but I think it’s my way of meditating. I feel very relaxed afterward. Spent about 15 min the last two nights. Do I have the right track in mind or can you help me figure out how to repair my negative vibrations? I need to change my life ASAP for I now have a 2 year old and am patenting alone. Things aren’t going great, and I know I need some direction to get on the right track. Any help and instruction is greatly appreciated. Thanks all
I would have liked some reliable data on this tested out on a large sample of people who don't know what is being tested, not on studies on water or from testimonials of individual practitioners. I don't mean that the extrapolation isn't possible, just that it's quite speculative.
If we could visualize - or sense clearly by some other means - the sum other others' vibrations, would those of decent human beings look something like those of normal yeast cells while those of scoundrels were more like stressed yeast cells? Wouldn't that be a fantastic tool for voters? Enabling them to see through politicians' lies.
Is work being done to develop diagnostic tools to detect illness through vibrational signatures?
Are there any tools which allow people to visualize their vibrational state and improve it through a feed back loop?
My favorite meditations to increase "serendipity" are: tripple mantra by Gurunam Singh, this works a lot for protection, prevention and taking obstacles away from your life as oppening the path that you need to open; and the soddharschan chakra kriya as taught by yogi bhajan, this one you find it here looking for yogi bhajan first then on his page there you find the mantra wahe gurú and soddharshan chakra kriya, he explains how to do this meditation, it causes rejuvenation between others like resolving your money issues! and to do 1 hour of that has helped me to resolve many things, I should go do it again.
This is so true. Have you ever dated someone very good-looking who, for some reason, just didn't fit you? And you wanted it to work so bad because they were so hot, but it was awkward at every turn? I've always called that "different RPM's", as in two motors out of sync with each other, even though each is fully functional. Compatibility is key.
I believe strongly in the law of attraction and how our thoughts create our reality, and this was such a great way to look at it in a more scientific way. I really enjoyed this. Thank you for being the teacher you are!
Unsupported nonsense. As soon as we start talking water memory you ignore the existing body of scientific knowledge. Simply misuses snippets of real theory’s mixed with new age nonsense to try and claim relationships she never proves. Then she moves on to something else rather than addressing any obvious objections to what has just been said. This is the sort of thing that leads gullible people to waste there time money and effort.
True enough, but we are discussing the serendipity talk not the point that a calm attitude sometimes helps. (At other times being aggressive and ramped up achieves more.) Joanna McEwen doesn't even convey your simple point clearly. BTW why don't you mention ice crystals, sonograms, vibrations and ancient painted patterns in your explanation? Because they are nonsense perhaps?
Sure most people find some music relaxing and other music raises different emotions. The problem is that this is being equated to being able to control what happens to us in life. With no supporting evidence just unrelated points like some ancient patterns resemble some sonograms, or pictures of ice crystals from a the discredited water memory hoax.
Also no discussion to the counterpoint evidence. First nations people have a strong cultural music/mystical tradition and life has been terrible on them for several generations in North america. The tibetans monks have not fared much better.
In a word 'nonsense.'
what a crock of make pretend horse kaka from the U.K. no less. No Wonder the fkn Muzzy's are taking over these stared eyes of drones british boneheaded morons who Once ruled the World. Karmas a B eyetch aint it Brit's
The power of affirmations to change your life. There is a great app out there called ThinkUP with the ability to change the background music to whatever you want. I will be looking for the perfect fifth music.
Excellent your vibration can be raised in certain situations and when it calms down again it release a little bit of light...... we light bearers owe it to the Universe to release light as often as we can..... enjoyed this very much x
She has a wonderful way of explaining the role of sound and vibration to our daily wellbeing. I sing HU (pronounced as a long drawn out note... Huuue), an ancient chant with a very high vibration, every day and find all the things she mentions to be perfectly true... joy, serendipity, clear thinking, less reaction - more cause... and when I sing HU with an open heart, I am flooded with unconditional love that I am able to share with those around me. The vibration of HU has transformed my life.
When i rubbed my hands together my brain fell out --- and i don't live in brighton.. or totnes. Can i have my money back please miss? Why do millennials all sound like pre-war Polly-Annas on acid and valium?
Powerful talk session - detailed, quantified, succinct, and inspiring. Very much appreciated the slides showing direct impact of sound on water molecules, etc. We can in fact take better care of ourselves with a healthful source of sound. Marvelous learning and many thanks Joanna.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
