Power of the Purr

PurrrrThis blog is dedicated to my cat peeps! Did you know that a cat’s purr is healing? Yes, you heard me …. a cat’s purr is healing!

If you have ever enjoyed the company of a feline, you have invariably been lured into a smile simply by the sound of their purr. That little rumbling motor that seems to consume a cat’s entire body and often makes them vibrate with happiness. This purr has healing ability!!! (Don’t stop reading because I’m going to get a little sciencey on you!)

Most people can agree that sound is very healing, right? Many of us listen to music to help us relax; we dance and exercise to music; music helps you to “get in the mood” (whatever mood you want to get into … giggle); we are mesmerized by the sound of waves rippling to shore, wind howling through the trees, and fire crackling. Even the little water fountain on my desk helps me to stay balanced throughout the day.

Purr quoteIn the book Vibrational Healing through the Chakras, Joy Gardner tells us that our bodies and emotions have a vibrational energy and are a source of electrical energy. All forms of matter (atomic and subatomic particles) vibrate; German physicist Max Planck proved this. This is what science has told us about vibration and frequency:

  • The heart has the frequency of 225 Hz
  • Brain waves vibrate at a frequency up to 200 Hz
    • Beta is waking consciousness and has a frequency of 15-40 Hz
    • Alpha is a relaxed state and has a frequency of 9-14 Hz
    • Theta is deep meditation, hypnosis, visualization and deep healing and has a frequency of 5-8 Hz
    • Delta is REM sleep with a frequency of .5 – 4 Hz
    • Epsilon is right-left hemisphere syncing and accessing great inspiration and has a frequency below .5 Hz
    • Gamma involves all senses converging for higher awareness at a frequency of 40-100 Hz (this involves shamanic/mystical experiences)
    • Lambda is the state of ecstasy and is up to 200 Hz
  • The Earth vibrates at 7.83 Hz. This is because lightening can circle the circumference of the Earth 7.83 times in one second, thus this is the charge for the Earth. There are 1000 lightening storms every second to keep this rate consistent. When our body can vibrate at that rate, we experience healing. Healers and mystics typically have a frequency of 7.8 Hz.

We know that light, sound, smell, plants, foods, essential oils can all be measured in frequencies. Our skin, sense of smell and taste are sensitive to frequencies of vibration. And when we have physical and emotional ailments, our body vibrates at a lower rate. Good stuff, eh?

Animal sounds have a frequency. Whale and elephant sounds resonate at a frequency of 15-35 Hz (which can stimulate alpha brain activity). Dolphins have a frequency of 3-500 Hz (the clicking sound) and 2000-80000 HZ (for their whistles). And (drum roll please) …. a cat’s purr has a frequency of 25-150 Hz.

A cat’s purr is within the ideal range for improving bone density and to promote overall healing and wellness. This range is also within the Gamma and Lambda frequencies. Maybe this is why cat’s often have a look of ecstasy on their face!

Cat’s purr not only when they are happy and well, but when they are ill and in pain. They purr when ill because the frequency of the purr helps them to feel better. So now imagine you are feeling under the weather, depressed, lonely, anxious, or struggling with a serious illness. One of the best healing methods (other than laughter) is to be near a cat!! This is why when you are not well, your cat will gravitate to you and be near you. They are natural healers and they know that their mere presence (or should I say, purrsence) will help you! I have experienced this on countless occasions where my cats lay on my bed, encircling me, when I do not feel well. That is the ultimate house call!

Let me heal youSo the next time you do not feel well (physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually), grab your cat and give them a big smooch and a hug (with their purrmission, of course). If you do not have a cat, find a friend or family member with a cat and hang out with them. Or even go to your local animal shelter to simply spend time with some homeless cats. You will feel better, and so will they!

If you want to really make your cat purr, join me for Crystal Healing for Animals on September 8th. Registration closes on September 1st (don’t miss it)!!!

I’m collecting stories of how animals help to heal us. So if you have a good story that you can share (and a photo of you with the animals), please email me!

Enjoy some purring this week!

Energy sensing: It’s how we connect

Reiki on AmethystWhen I give an energy therapy session, I perform an energy sensing technique with my hands that can give me some good insights to help me focus on areas that need extra attention. I receive messages through the channels in my hands. But have you ever done this on an inanimate object?

Have you ever been drawn to a place yet did not know why? Have you ever gone to a location, a building, a city, a lake and “felt” the energy? You felt connected, at ease, like you were home? When that happened, did you take the time to figure out why?

Earlier this month I was on a glorious vacation in Scotland. Initially I was hesitant to book the vacation, but then something bigger took over and I knew I needed to go. As soon as I landed on Scottish ground, I knew I was with “my” energy … I knew that I was “home.” With every location, castle, and loch that I visited, it felt natural; connecting with people was effortless. This is when you know that you are in an energetically compatible location; a place where you will thrive.

I also spent time energy sensing on several castles. You do not have to be attuned to energy healing to sense energy from locations, but if you are attuned you will be more receptive. It’s a wonderful method to pick up messages, history, feelings from the past; it’s a way to receive natural guidance. All you have to do is place your hands on the object or even just sit quietly in the location and open yourself to listening with all of your senses.

Eilean Donan castle
Eilean Donan castle

One castle that I energy sensed on was the Eilean Donan castle (one of the most photographed castles in the world that was also featured in the movie Made of Honor with Patrick Dempsey). As I laid my hands on the exterior walls, and even pressed my ear against the wall, I could feel what the castle wanted to tell me. Many of the messages were personal, but I felt that the castle had suffered through bad times but was energetically breathing a sigh of relief at the calm of the present; an overall sense of joy and frivolity.

Dundonald Castle
Dundonald Castle

I also energy sensed on the ruins of the Dundonald Castle. I felt the lingering of pain, loss, destruction, and sadness. I could feel the castle weeping. So I spent some time infusing Reiki into the castle walls in an effort to heal whatever had happened. Both castles had suffered numerous battles and losses, so why was one happy and the other sad? I believe that the infusion of energy from curious tourists is contributing to the energy of the castles. Eilean Donan is one of the most popular castles in Scotland and has hundreds of thousands of visitors a year; whereas Dundonald is not as popular so has fewer tourists sharing their energy.

Sounds crazy, right? To those who are intuitive and understand energy, this makes sense that we leave our energy everywhere we go. To the rest, it may sound bonkers. So here’s my wish … the next time you are drawn to a vacation location or a particular building, spend a little time to ask yourself why and then just relax and sit in the energy of that location and building to feel the message. Leave a little of your energy behind so that you are always connected with the location. When you can open yourself to the messages of locations, it will give you more information about who you are!

I’d love to hear from you if you’ve experienced this before!

Vacation & Grounding = Wellbeing

Culzean Castle
Culzean Castle

Last week I was in the glorious land of Scotland for a much-needed vacation. Did you know that most Americans leave 2 weeks of earned vacation time on the table every year (that’s 175 million vacation days)? And many people work in places where they don’t receive vacation time? Whether I have a stay-cation at home, or travel to one of my life-list vacation spots, I always give myself at least a week of downtime twice a year … no excuses. Otherwise, I’d be a mess!

With all of my work and various projects, I find that I’m involved with technology far too much each day. This can really cause the body and mind to become frenetic and unbalanced. And while a vacation and technology break is essential for all of our wellbeing, so is earthing or grounding.

Meditating at Loch Ness
Meditating at Loch Ness

On my travels to Scotland, I read a book called Earthing. It discusses the powerful healing connection that we must make to Mother Earth everyday in order to maintain health and wellbeing. I highly recommend reading it. Earthing (or grounding) is as simple as placing your bare feet on the ground, sand, or in a natural body of water (ocean or lake). The positive electrons from the Earth infuse into our body which is filled with far too many negative electrons (which ends up causing inflammation which is the root of many diseases). If connecting directly with the ground is difficult or not possible (based on weather or urban environment), then the Earthing Institute has these earthing mats that are great for people and pets!

Feet in North AyrshireFeet in Loch Lochy

So while I was unplugging from technology in Scotland, I was plugging into the healing matrix of Mother Earth! Scotland is a beautiful place with the most breath-taking scenery so it was easy to feel relaxed and well. I spent most of my time out in the western isles and the highlands (away from the big cities). And I also made sure that I spent some time soaking my feet in the many Lochs and meditating with the quiet scenery.

It was also a great place to rock hound. Check out my rock hounding video!

So here’s my wellness prescription for you today: go outside, take off your shoes, and plant your tootsies directly onto the ground. Stay there for 10-30 minutes and you will notice how much calmer and balanced you feel. And aim to do this everyday. You will be amazed at the results.

Happy Grounding!
