Tune Into The Healing Frequency of Nature

We instinctively know what’s good for us, and I am sure you will know the feeling of when you’ve been for a long walk in nature, how your whole sense of wellbeing has improved.

Yet this connection to nature had been lost, as people turn to gyms and equipment as we were sold the dream of health and fitness by corporations who didn’t really understand how real healing comes about.

What we are re-discovering is that the answer lies in aligning ourselves with nature. The closer we are to nature, the healthier we are.

The science behind this is fascinating, and it relates back to the electromagnetism I wrote about earlier in the course.

Everything has a vibrational frequency, and there are certain frequencies that hold the key to all health and healing.

What I discovered recently was that there was a frequency for “love”, and it is 528 hertz.

Then when I delved into it a bit deeper, I realised that everywhere we turn in nature, we find 528 hertz.

Chlorophyll, which helps plants draw energy from light and gives them their green colours, vibrates at 528 hertz.

From trees to bees, in the sun and even the rainbow which completes that picturesque scene, has 528 at it’s heart, as it refracts the same grrenish-yellow light found in chlorophyll.

528 hertz is central to everything in the Universe and the mathematical, musical matrix of creation.

When we are outside and close to nature, especially in dense green areas, we will be aligning ourselves to the 528 frequency, literally breathing it into our lungs in the form of oxygen.

Read more about it below and make sure you get out into the forest at least once this week and see how it feels to drink it all in!

528hz

528 Hertz is perhaps the most significant of the six ancient Solfeggio frequencies, and it’s healing potential has long been recognised in the music world. In fact, John Lennon wrote “Imagine” in 528 hertz for this very reason.

Have a listen and check in with how it makes you feel…

All around the world now, music is being created to have a healing effect – on individuals and on the planet.

Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz is an internationally known authority in the overlapping fields of public health, behavioral science, emerging diseases, and natural healing. He has been fundamental in bringing understanding and research of 528 hert into the public domain.

Here’s what he has to say:

“Musicians shall remedy what aids humanity”.

He has a whole radio channel of 528 music. You can find it here https://www.528records.com/radio

Anahata – The Unstruck Chord

You will have heard the sayings:

“That strikes a chord with me”

“Yes that really resonates”

This is where it comes from. The idea that we all have a vibrational frequency, and either we are at a similar resonance or not.

In yoga, the heart chakra, the energy centre in the body related to the heart, lungs, and circulatory system, is known as the Anahata, which means “unstruck chord”.

When our heart is open, when something strikes it open, we are able to operate from a place of love. In other words, we experience more joy, love, compassion, and connection when we have a healthy heart.

It can be adversely affected by stress, however, and grief, in particular, can de-activate the heart chakra, often making us feel physically as well as emotionally unwell.

So how do we maintain a healthy heart chakra?

We need to breathe properly. We need to breathe deeper and more freely, and we need to trust that life is there to support us.

We can adopt a state of mind condusive to heart-opening, and affirmations or mantras can help with that. For instance,

“I choose joy, compassion, and love.”

We can adopt a yoga or meditation practise focused on heart-opening, and we can just choose to “walk in love, not fear”.

You can find out more here about how to heal the heart chakra, and I’d also recommend a good guided meditation like this one here for bedtime.

Connection

As human beings, we are wired for connection.We are social beings, yet even when we are surrounded by others, we can feel lonely and isolated.

We need to feel love and belonging to have a nourishing experience as a human being, and for our hearts to be open.

So how do we feel a sense of connection, love and belonging?

The answer lies in allowing ourselves to be seen, as we are, and being prepared to be vulnerable, to lean into the discomfort of not knowing how others will receive us and what we do, and dance to the beat of our own drum.

This is courage. The word comes from the French word “couer”, and it’s literal translation is “open-hearted”.

When we fear the judgements of others, when we wear a mask, afraid to reveal our true self, our heart remains closed, and we don’t experience true connection. It’s not real.

Here Brene Brown, the reknowned social scientist, explains:

If you’ve not come across Brene Brown I would highly recommend her work.

She changed my life from being a “people-pleaser”, with weak boundaries and often a lack of connection, or strong sense of self, to being a “wild warrior”, embracing my vulnerability,  led by love and compassion but with boundaries of steel.

If you think this may be helpful to you, you may want to look at my Way Of The Wild Warrior course next.

You’ll be stronger and more courageous than ever before.
