[ Meditation… Part 1 of 3 ]

Have you ever wondered this about meditation?

I’ve been reading a lot about it and
feel the benefits from it but what exactly does meditation do for the body?
I know it activates certain parts of the brain but I’m not clear on what exactly that means. 

One of my clients asked me this in my inbox and I thought it would be a great series to dive into with you.

Sure, I’ve written about my personal experiences with meditation, like the time I I did a 10-day yoga challenge (starting at day 95).  But you probably were wondering, “what does meditation do for the body?”

[ Meditation Does A Body Good! ]

According to SoundsTrue.Com, meditation on the body can help you:

  • Channel revitalizing energy throughout your body and 

  • Uncover your body’s untapped powers of perception, intuition, and wisdom.

We live in an overly stimulated world, so when you can channel energy to make yourself feel good, your body can literally carry you longer and work more optimally!

Meditation can structurally change your brain… “thickening some areas, and making others less dense”…

Similarly, we are mammals, and meditation allows you to attune to the silent messages your body tells you to signal happiness, balance, and yes, even illness.  Body Scanning Meditation awakens you to what your body needs and wants to tell you:

As a youth, Levine was incarcerated several times. His first book, Dharma Punx, details teenage years filled with drugs, violence, and multiple suicide attempts—choices fuelled by disillusionment with American mainstream culture. His substance abuse started early in life—at age six he began smoking marijuana—and finally ended in a padded detoxification cell in juvenile prison 11 years later. It was in this cell where he hit “an emotional rock bottom” and began his vipassana practice “out of a place of extreme drug addiction and violence” While incarcerated, he saw for the first time how the practice his father taught him gave him the tools to relieve the fear and uncertainty that pervaded his life.

One notable aspect of Buddhist Dharma is the path of our choices, the actions past and present and the intention for future action (Buddhist Law of Karma). Levine’s past—addiction, incarceration, violence, initial rejection of Buddhism and meditation—are all defining characteristics of his writings and teachings. “We all sort of have a different doorway to dharma or spiritual practice. Suffering is a doorway. For me it was the suffering of addiction, violence and crime which opened me at a young age, 17 years old. I was incarcerated, looking at the rest of my life in prison and thought, ‘Maybe I will try dad’s hippie meditation bullshit.’ Suffering opened me to the possibility of trying meditation.”

He currently leads Dharma and vipassana meditation retreats and workshops across the United States and teaches weekly meditation classes in Los Angeles. A member of the Prison Dharma Network, Levine works with juvenile and adult prison inmates, combining meditation techniques with psychotherapy. He “explores how they can have a deeper understanding of what has happened and what they need to do in order to be free, on many levels—free from prison, free from the trauma of the past.”

He has helped found several groups and projects including the Mind Body Awareness Project, a non-profit organization that serves incarcerated youths. Introducing them to the Buddha’s teachings. He lists the 14th Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Ram Dass, Joseph Goldstein, Sharon Salzberg, Norman Fischer, and Sylvia Boorstein as his teachers.

Sacred Sound Alchemy for DNA Repair and Healing


Sacred Sound Alchemy for DNA Repair and Healing

I vibrate at a rather high level, and I listened to this video and felt really elevated.
If you’d like to really enhance the experience, why not try it with some Peacock Ore aka “Chalcopyrite”?

Forgotten In Time: The Ancient Solfeggio Frequencies
There is no taste, no sound, no light and no color
Our taste and sound receptors are impulse converters; There is no light and no color outside of our brain.
Colors and light are formed in our brains by conversion.
Light energy vibrations of different frequency(i.e., of different wavelengths) are converted by a transducer(the eye) into signals(impulses) that can be received and processed by neurons in the brain of as colors.
Love signal is a healing audio and visual meditation with music, sacred geometry and Solfeggio frequency 528 Hz, the miraculous frequency for transformation and DNA repair. There is a special sound and color of love according to Dr. Horowitz, a Harvard-trained award-winning investigator. Broadcasting the right frequency can help open your heart, prompt peace, and hasten healing. “We now know the love signal, 528 Hertz, is among the six core creative frequencies of the universe because math doesn’t lie, the geometry of physical reality universally reflects this music; these findings have been independently derived, peer reviewed, and empirically validated,” Dr. Horowitz says. Music & video by Jandy the Decibel Jezebel Poem by Katie Pye The Solfeggio Scale and note names; 1. UT…396 Hz (Center Pillar of the Tree)
The third note, frequency 528, relates to the note MI on the scale and derives from the phrase “MI-ra gestorum” in Latin meaning “miracle.” Stunningly, this is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA – the genetic blueprint upon which life is based! MI – 528 Hz – relates to crown chakra. Dr Mirahorian suggests an association with DNA integrity,transformation and Miracles . MI – 528 Hz – relates to crown chakra;
The regular “C” that we all know of in this culture (which is from the diatonic scale of do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do) is not the 528 Hz frequency “C. A regular “C” vibrates at a frequency of 512 Hz. The “C” of 528 Hz used for DNA repair is part of an ancient scale called the Solfeggio Scale. See more on:

The Importance of Music in Schools @youtube #education


The Importance of Music in Schools

… in partial fulfillment of the requirements for PED 3102 Schooling and Society, this video outlines recent and not-so-recent research on the brain and music education.

Featured music: “Carmen. 1. Akt / Act 1 : Avec la garde montante” by Bernard Plantey & Nicolai Gedda

One comment on this video that I thought was particularly accurate:
by “zazuetahernandez”:

That’s your conclusion???? really???? “Maybe, we need to pay more attention to it???” your conclusion should be: Music education achieves much more than just playing an instrument. It develops creative thinking, it develops a connection beetween our body and our brain, therefore it should be a central part in the curricula of every school!!!

What is your conclusion of the importance of music in schools? Please comment below!

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLEness!

What if every child had access to music education from birth? @youtube @TEDx


What if every child had access to music education from birth? | Anita Collins | TEDxCanberra

My music education started at the age of 5 in dance at the Dance Theatre of Harlem, and at the age of 6, playing the flute.  I have actually said many times that I feel my music education (and appreciation) began in the womb, and this TEDx talk proves my theory.

This TEDx talk also explains why, outside of inherited “good genes”, I skipped 2 grades, graduated a two-sport Division I Scholar-Athlete at the age of 16, and before I decided it wasn’t my path, was enrolled into a Graduate school for undergrads when I started University.

Music education began with solo, private instruction on flute, piano and guitar, panned out to ensembles and bands, impromptu performances in nightclubs in Costa Rica and Israel and the States as a vocalist…  I am still a musician, even though my “instrument” is my DJ equipment.

I believe in Music Education.  I’ve been a guest educator for students, teaching them about music, the appreciation of music, and even How To DJ.

I believe in Music Education. Do you?

In this TEDx Talk, you’ll discover why “Music is exercise for the brain” and learn the 2 Myths about playing music.

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLEness!

As advances in healthcare progress, more importance is being given to the glands of the endocrine system and the necessity of their proper functioning. Much is still to be researched and understood about the body’s endocrine system, particularly the glands located in the the brain. The endocrine system consists of a series of glands that secrete particular hormones into the bloodstream. These hormones send messages to the cells of the body, which in turn help to regulate a variety of functions including metabolism, growth and development, tissue function and mood.
