The Power of Intention

(中文版在最下方) I was sitting in downtown Sunnyvale’s coffee shop early this morning, next to a wide-open window so I can feel the breeze from the wind, the cool crisp fresh air, the old love song playing in the shop with my hot coffee, and I can see the street path closed-off with lots of booths were setting up because it is the Art and Wine Festival this weekend. At that moment, I truly felt that life is good, so many things to be grateful for, and I haven’t had this type of feeling for so long. I know I have got out of the dark tunnel finally.

On top of that, I start seeing the power of the intention.

Lately, I keep thinking about what I want in life at this point forward, and what is my goal for my healing biz. I went through a lot in life (I know there are many people had a worse life than mine; however, there is no need to compare pain unless you are trying to diminish someone’s pain existence which is not my goal here), and the last 5 years were the worsed; however, it also teaches me the greatest life lessons that I wouldn’t have learned otherwise. For that, I thank myself for not giving up although I have thought about it a few times. I am also very thankful for those family and friends who have been there all these years for me.

So I would like to return the favor and paying forward.  I said to the universe that I want to let more people know about the power and the benefits of the Sound Healing and Hypnotherapy, and use these two modalities among other things that I know or have learned to help others to heal themselves from whatever trauma that they have been through. I ask the universe to help me and guide me to find a way to get into all big high-tech companies’ wellness program for their hard-working employees who live in a high-stress life.  I believe the universe will make that happen.

And all of sudden, I have four new clients from Yelp booked appointments within two weeks. On top of that, I got an email from the Intuit‘s Wellness and Lifestyle Expo organizer who offer me to hosting a booth and educate their employees about my services and get the opportunity to book new clients on site. Intuit has 2500 employees and expect 500 would attend the event. I take it as a sign that the universe is responding to my intention.

Plus, possibly to do workshops with acupuncturists with Sound Bath (where I got that idea from).

By the way, if you are a yoga instructor specialize in either Yin yoga, Restorative yoga, yoga Nidra or you lead meditation, please contact me.  I would like to create a workshop together.

Or if you are interested to host a Sound Bath for your special private event, let me know.

Stanford’s Health Improvement Program has a regular Sound Immersion event at the Graduate Community Center.

Thank you for the universe, the God, the Buddha, the higher power, whatever that is, Thank you for helping me so I can help others.  I wish everyone can live in a healthy and happy life.

 

今天一大早我一個人坐在Sunnyvale市中心的一家咖啡館靠窗的位子, 窗戶敞開, 我可以感受到涼爽的微風吹在我臉上, 呼吸著新鮮的空氣, 咖啡廳裡放熟悉的老情歌, 我正享受著香氣撲鼻的熱拿鐵. 我看著窗外正在準備的攤位, 原來這二天剛好是Sunnyvale的藝術和美酒節. 在這個當下, 我真心感受到生命的美好, 有好多事是值得心存感恩的, 而我已經許久不曾有這樣的感覺, 這讓我知道, 我已經走出那個黑暗的隧道了.

而且, 我開始感受到 “意念” 的力量.

最近我一直在想我接下來的歲月想要過什麼樣的人生, 還有我對我的療癒工作的目標是什麼. 我這一路上經歷過許多 (我知道有很多人有比我更痛苦更慘的經歷, 但我無意與他人的痛苦比較, 因為痛苦是真實的, 比較的心態似乎有貶低痛苦的事實, 其實沒有意義, 也不是我的目的). 在過去的五年是我最痛苦的時候, 但也教會我許多人生很寶貴的一些事情, 如果沒有這些經歷, 有可能我沒機會學會. 為此, 我要感謝自己, 這一路走來沒有放棄自己 (雖然我考慮過幾次). 我也非常感謝這一路相伴的親朋好友.

所以我希望能回饋, 我過去接受過別人的幫助, 現在我希望我也有能力幫助別人. 我向老天許願, 希望能讓更多人知道頌缽音療和催眠的力量和好處, 讓我用我所學所知的東西來幫助別人, 讓他們也能從過去的傷痛當中慢慢療癒自己. 我請老天幫忙, 引領我找到一個管道或方式進入各大科技公司的Wellness Program, 來幫助那些身處高壓工作環境的員工, 我相信老天會實現我的願望的.

結果沒幾天, 我突然收到四位預約音療和催眠的新客戶, 然後收到一封來自主辦Intuit Wellness & Lifestyle Expo的電郵, 邀請我參加, 讓我介紹和教育Intuit的員工有關我的音療和催眠. Intuit有二千五百位員工, 預計五百位會參加Expo, 我把這突如其來的機會當做老天聽到我的許願了.

另外, 我正在和幾位中醫師討論合辦針灸和音療的活動.

如果你是瑜珈老師, 或是靜坐老師, 有興趣和我一起合辦活動的話, 請和我聯絡.

如果你有興趣聘請我去幫你做一個私人的Sound bath, 也請聯絡我.

史丹佛的改善健康的活動中有一個固定的音療活動.

感謝老天, 神明, 看不見得更大力量, 不管是什麼, 我都感謝你的幫助. 我希望每個人都過著健康快樂的生活.

Education, Vibrational Sound Therapy

[頌缽音療] Atma Buti Sound and Vibrational School in Boulder, CO.

Vibrational Sound Association2017年八月底所開的課程是我第一個Sound Therapy課程, 從此以後就愛上了頌缽音療, 這一年多來也幫不少朋友和客人做療程, 體驗過的人個個讚賞. 今年初我在East West Bookstore看到一本How To Heal With Singing Bowls的書, 才知道Boulder, CO有一間Atma Buti Sound and Vibrational School, 於是上官網查個仔細.

Atma Buti ® is a Sanskrit word and that translates to Soul Medicine, 創辦人Suren Shrestha來自尼泊爾, 他跟頌缽的因緣從1999年開始, 頌缽音療從2003年開始, 在2009年出版了第一本書 (已被翻譯成韓文, 日文, 義大利文), 所有來自書籍和部分的教學收入都直接捐助尼泊爾的Orphanage Projects 來幫助貧困的小孩受教育.

因為時間剛好連續, 所以想一口氣拿完Level I, II, III (後面還有Level IV and V, 但日期不同, 得擇期再來), 但是我掙扎了很久, 因為學費+住宿+伙食+租車, 一週下來的費用可觀, 思考了幾個月, 為了增進自己好幫助別人, 眼睛閉著就報名了. (六月份還有Level IV and V, 各三天, 但分二週)

這是我第一次來Colorado (寬闊又綠), 第一次住Airbnb (好經驗), 第一次租車開KIA 2020年份的新車 (才開了600 miles), 一共有14位學生 (據說以往都十位左右), 來自美國各地 (有幾位原本來自尼泊爾, 台灣, 印度, 日本, 英國, 葡萄牙, 但都在美國住很多年了), 有幾位是因為看了書後報名課程, 有幾位是參加Tucson’s Gem Show遇到Suren Shrestha的頌缽攤位後報名課程, 總之, 大家會一起在這裡上課絕不是巧合, 會坐在誰旁邊也都是老天安排好的 (我左邊的同學有冬天憂鬱症, 我右邊的同學住的Airbnb離我不遠).

Level I 的第一天基本上就是把要拿證書的規定講一遍, 然後同學自我介紹, 把我們面前的玩具一一介紹. 第二天學習Rubing bowls and move it around at the same time, 不太容易, 需要多練習才會熟練. 有些缽會比某些缽要容易擦響.

想像一下你身體裡面的水跟我放在你身上的頌缽共震的情況, 你不覺得很神奇嗎?

Level II 便開始教不同頌缽的排列組合, 來因應不同狀況, 上面是單純放鬆, 開第三眼, 和平衡脈輪的排列, 結合銅鈴, 則有不同的敲法順序.

老師講解完後, 我們分組練習, 一組三人. 這些按摩床的外圍都有經過加工, 才有辦法放那麼多個缽. 我可能選擇改用幾張小的折疊桌, 方便收納和攜帶.

今晚剛好是滿月, 所以加開一場滿月的Sound Concert. 真的超舒服, 好睡的.

隔天早上Suren Shrestha解釋他的頌缽排法和敲法, 然後讓大家輪流嘗試和練習. 下午學著缽裡放點熱水, 放在身上滑動和Rubing.

Level III 教幾種專門針對清理/平衡脈輪, 處理情緒 (壓力, 憂鬱症, 負面能量), 身體病痛 (關節炎, 高血壓), 以及雙缽同時滑缽(Rubbing)的深度放鬆等不同頌缽組合排列.

結業了!!!

在Boulder, CO的一週, 從80F一路下降到35F下雪, 還好我有帶一件厚外套, 加上多數時間都在室內, 不過還是覺得一週天氣變化的落差之大, 很不可思議.

我買了一組七個的脈輪缽, 都是我一個一個挑選出來的, 用Tuner去測試每一個缽, 確保每一個音對照脈輪都是準確的, 然後七個缽敲起來的音調也符合耳朵的舒適. 花了好幾個小時的時間挑選啊. 我另外還精心挑選了三個不同大小的心輪缽回來, 只賣給有緣人囉!!!

Six Senses Healing

Hello everyone,

I am announcing great news!!!  I have started a healing arts services, Six Senses Healing, to sharing what I know and what I believe in, with everyone who wants to experience a holistic approach with alternative medicine.

I was experiencing anxiety, panic attack, and depression for a few years, before and after my divorce.  Life feel like an emotional rollercoaster, and I feel lost and trapped in this chaotic, out of control ride.

To deal with the difficult time, I had try everything I could – seeing a Psychiatrist (try different type of antidepressant medicine that has different side effects such as 25 lb weight gain in one year or emotional numbness or suicidal thoughts), a counselor for three years, an acupuncturist, a chiropractor, a homeopathist, two hypnotherapists, a personal trainer, and a energy healer.

On top of that, I begin to study Kundalini Yoga, Meditation, Qigong, Vibrational Sound Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, Aromatherapy, and other modalities.

It is the idea that those who seek to help others are doing so because they are, in turn, helping themselves. The harmony is created when you get connected with the “Inner Self”. You let the wings of freedom to guide your life. Rumi says “The wounds are the places where light enters.”  Healers have a desire to help others because of a difficult past, enormous pain and loss, and their work serving others ultimately heals themselves.

From learning and practicing these modalities showed me a self-discovery and self-realization path, which leads to how to live authentically according to one’s essence and purpose. Our wounds teach us life lessons. They create ways for us to connect, teach and touch other’s hearts with great Attunement, Empathy, and Sympathy.  I want to provide a safe place for others who are seeking help by empowering them to heal themselves.

Besides all the helps I got from the health professionals, the biggest help I got are from friends dear to me.  Their understanding and support and accompany are the reasons that help me through the hard time and for me to get back on my feet.  Without their love and caring, I won’t be alive today.  I am grateful for everyone who has helped me along the way.  In return, I would like to help others who are going through a hard time in life whether you are going through divorce or depression, I want you to know, you are not alone.  There is nothing to feel the shame of.  You have to seek outside help.  And I am happy to share my own experiences with you, offer you support, and help you with ways I know.

親愛的讀者,

我想要告訴你們一個好消息!! 我開始提供療癒服務 – 六感療癒, 將我所學, 所知, 所相信的, 來和想體驗一個考量整體的非主流醫學.

我自己在離婚前後幾年, 經歷過焦慮, 恐慌, 憂鬱症, 那個情緒就像坐雲霄飛車一般, 我感到迷惘和被困住在這個無法控制的情況.

為了尋求康復, 我求助過精神科醫生 (吃過不同的抗憂鬱症藥, 經歷過不同的副作用), 看了三年的諮商師, 也看了中醫師, 整骨師, 自然療法師, 催眠師, 健身教練和能量師.

除此之外, 我還開始學習昆達里尼瑜珈, 打坐, 氣功, 震動聲音療法, 催眠, EFT情緒釋放技巧, 芳療和其他方式.

那些希望藉由幫助別人的人, 他們會選擇這樣做, 是因為他們相信最終會反過來幫到自己。 當你與“內心自我”聯繫時,就會產生和諧。 你讓自由的翅膀引導你的生活。 魯米說:“傷口就是光進入的地方。”治療師因為自己過去的傷痛和損失, 希望能夠透過幫助他人,反過來他們也從中得到療癒。

從學習和實踐這些方式, 提供我一條自我發現和自我實現的道路,引領著如何根據一個人的本質和目的過著真實的生活。 我們的傷口教會我們人生課程。 他們為我們創造了一種方式,通過極大的協調,同理心和同情來聯繫,教導和觸動他人的心靈。 我想為那些尋求幫助的人提供一個安全的地方,讓他們能夠自我治癒。

除了我從專業醫療人士那裡獲得的所有幫助外,我得到的最大幫助是來自親朋好友。 他們的理解,支持和陪伴是幫助我渡過難關並讓我重新站起來的原因。 沒有他們的愛和關懷,我不會活到今天。 我很感激所有幫助過我的人。 作為回報,我想幫助那些正在經歷痛苦的人,無論你是在經歷離婚還是憂鬱症,我想讓你知道,你並不孤單。 不需要感到丟臉。 你必須尋求外界的幫助。 我很樂意與你分享我自己的經驗,為你提供支持,並以我所知的方式幫助你。

10 Holistic Approaches to Parkinson’s Disease

For people with Parkinson’s disease, treatment typically involves the use of medications that help minimize movement problems and control symptoms. A disorder of the central nervous system, Parkinson’s disease also can be better managed with the help of certain lifestyle changes. Since many medications used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease can cause severe side effects, patients often seek alternative treatment options.

The use of alternative medicine in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease has yet to be extensively researched. However, a small number of studies suggest that the following natural approaches may be of some benefit to Parkinson’s patients.

1. Watch and Read

  • Watch a documentary called “HEAL”.

It’s on Netflix if you or your friends have Netflix. Or you can rent or buy via an online platform such as iTune, Amazon, etc.

2. Eat healthy food.

Raw fruits and vegetables, High fiber foods, Healthy fats, Cold-pressed oils, Omega-3 foods, Green tea, lots of water, Protein at dinner only.

AVOID too much protein, processed foods, artificial sweeteners & added sugar, alcohol, any potential food allergens (gluten, dairy, shellfish, peanuts.)

3. Add supplements.

Coenzyme Q10, Vitamin C, D, E, Omega-3 fish oil, Green vegetable powder supplement that includes Spirulina, chlorella or wheatgrass.

4. Choose the right exercises.

Staying active can help you sleep, strengthen your muscles and joints, reduce stress and depression, and improve posture, balance, and gait. The types of exercise you choose will depend, to some degree, on the severity of your Parkinson’s disease and your overall health.

According to the Parkinson’s Disease Clinic and Research Center at the University of California, the exercises should be varied and incorporate changing directions through unplanned movement, cardiovascular exercise, balance, strength training and rhythmical exercises.

Walking, Dancing, Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga, Meditation, Swimming, Water Aerobics,

5. Acupuncture.

According to the Neurodegenerative Disease Research Group at King’s College in London, recent research has shown acupuncture can relieve Parkinson’s symptoms by generating a neural response in areas of the brain that are particularly affected by inflammation, such as the putamen and the thalamus.

Acupuncture has been used for centuries to help reduce pain, anxiety, insomnia, and stiffness. Now it’s suggested that it can even help slow cell death and attenuate oxidative stress that causes damage to dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra.

6. Hypnotherapy and Sound Therapy.

Hypnotherapy is like a guided meditation with an intention that works on your subconscious by telling your subconscious what we want the body to do (relax your body and mind, sleep better, improve the symptoms, etc.)

Sound Therapy uses the water in your body vibrated with the Singing Bowls that is placed on your body plus the sound you hear, together they can work wonders to unblock the tension you have in your organs or cells, brain stimulation can dramatically improve the symptoms, and the transmission of dopamine and serotonin. Sound Therapy helps with motivation, coordination, energy, vocal tone and modulation, mood and positivity.

7. MRI-Focused Ultrasound  Undergoing Phase 3 Clinical Trial for Parkinson’s Treatment

With the new technology, clinicians direct ultrasound waves to a brain structure called the globus pallidus, which helps regulate voluntary movement, to destroy damaged tissue, decreasing the uncontrolled movements that characterize Parkinson’s disease.

Doctors use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to create a temperature map of the brain, giving them a real-time picture of the region they want to hit with the sound waves. They then raise the energy, directly targeting that area of the brain to destroy the tissue.

8.  Aromatherapy

Essential oils are believed to have beneficial effects on the mind, body, and spirit. Many essential oils are used to treat specific ailments or complaints. Like herbs and minerals, the FDA does not regulate essential oils. Most medical doctors don’t consider them a valid treatment for what ails you, but those who use them are believers. But check with your doctor first. If you have allergies or anaphylaxis, you’ll probably want to avoid most essential oils. By and large, though, they’re worth a try.

9. Massage Therapy

According to a 2002 study conducted by the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami, along with staff from the university’s neurology department and Duke University’s pharmacology department, Parkinson’s disease symptoms are reduced by massage therapy. In this study, the group of adults with Parkinson’s disease who received two massages a week for five weeks experienced improved daily functioning, increased quality of sleep and decreased stress-hormone levels. The study’s authors reported, “These findings suggest that massage therapy enhances functioning in progressive or degenerative central nervous system disorders or conditions.”

While several different massage modalities have been quantifiably researched in the context of Parkinson’s, including Trager, Alexander Technique and Swedish massage, all modalities report improvement in function, from the reduction of rigidity and improvement of sleep, to the reduction of tremor and increase of daily activity stamina.

10. Medical Marijuana (CBD)

The two primary chemicals that are isolated from the cannabis plant are Delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). THC exerts the mind-altering effects that recreational marijuana is known for, whereas CBD does not. For the most part, medical marijuana consists of purified combinations of these two chemicals in varying ratios. The combination can be dispensed as a liquid, pill or nasal spray. Both THC and CBD interact with the ECS.

Netflix Documentary: Heal

Director Kelly Noonan Gores’ documentary takes us on a scientific and spiritual journey where we discover that our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal. The latest science reveals that we are not victims of unchangeable genes, nor should we buy into a scary prognosis. The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe.

This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all. HEAL not only taps into the brilliant minds of leading scientists and spiritual teachers but follows three people on actual high stakes healing journeys. Healing can be extremely complex and deeply personal, but it can also happen spontaneously in a moment. Through these inspiring and emotional stories, we find out what works, what doesn’t, and why.

Now available on Netflix!!! Or you can rent or buy via online platforms such as iTune, Amazon, etc. 

導演Kelly Noonan Gores的紀錄片帶我們進行科學和靈性之旅,探索我們的思想,信念和情緒對我們的健康和療癒能力有巨大影響。 最新的科學研究發現,我們不是無法改變基因的受害者,我們也不應該相信可怕的醫療預測結果。 事實上,我們對健康和生命的控制力是比我們被教導的要多。

這部電影將讓您對人體的神奇自癒和我們所有人當中那些非凡的療癒者有新的認識。 HEAL不僅能夠吸引領先科學家和靈性導師的傑出思想,而且還會跟隨三個人實際進行的高風險療癒之旅。 治療可能非常複雜且非常個人化,但它也可能在一瞬間自發發生。 通過這些鼓舞人心和情感的故事,我們發現哪些有效,哪些無效,以及為什麼。
