Nazar Dosha Tips
The thought of “Buri Nazar” (evil eye) or “Nazar Dosh” is incredibly standard and creates ripples within the mind once anybody detected concerning it.
Nazar Dosh could be considered a transfer of negative energy. When someone holds intense negative thoughts concerning another person or object, the negative thoughts accumulate within the mind. When this vibratory energy transfers to another person or object, it causes hurt thereto.
Effect of Nazar Dosh
• Disturbance of the thinking pattern of the person envied.
• Diseases without identifiable somatic cause. Continue reading
Human Emotions Vibration Analysis Frequency Ranges
By Julia Smith, 2012
The Emotional Vibration Analysis Frequency Chart
Every person on this planet is vibrating at a very subtle hertz frequency rate or their personal vibration analysis. We have a base metabolic rate when at rest, but when events start happening in our lives and our emotions are engaged our vibrational rate changes rapidly and often dramatically.
From the moment we are born our emotions are engaged and our mind then starts learning defense reactions, which are imprinted and stored deep in the mind’s recesses. Continue reading
SACRED WHITE SAGE
A way to clear negativity…
By Eileen Nauman
Every Nation has its sage for ceremonial purposes. I was shown specific white, ‘female’ patches of sage a long time ago by my medicine man teacher, who was western Cherokee.
Sage is used for clearing negativity–inside and outside ourselves, and from our dwellings, a room, an office, an attic or any other type of structure. We use it to cleanse our auras, too, when we have a ‘bad hair day’ and we’re carrying around a lot of junk that we want to get rid of in a hurry.
Sage emits negative ions; just as a waterfall or running water, emits the same thing. This is why, when people are near running water, they always feel cleaner, cleaned off or just ‘better’ for seeming no reason at all. But there is a deeper reason. Our aura holds positive ions, much like a carpet when you walk across it, creates static electricity. Only, these positive ions are like dust in our aura and it simply makes us feel sluggish, tired, or just not our usual frisky, peppy self. Continue reading
Specific Gemstones & Gemstone Families
Malachite – All Chakras, especially Solar Plexus
Malachite is found in various shades of green and is mined in the US, Russia, Australia, and Africa. It is one of the oldest known stones, and has been used for thousands of years for its healing properties. Malachite can assist in grounding higher energies into the more mundane planes of existence. Individuals sometimes experience it helping in the self-purification process; as it can act like a mirror in revealing the truth about the self.
The deep green color of Malachite is associated with the physical plane. Due to its energetic trait of absorbing energy, it is a good stone to utilize on any diseased or painful area of the body. It seems to aid in tissue regeneration and draws out any adverse energies. Thus, it is important to cleanse this stone often.

The Smudging Ceremony
by Adrienne Borden and Steve Coyote
Our Native elders have taught us that before a person can be healed or heal another, one must be cleansed of any bad feelings, negative thoughts, bad spirits or negative energy – cleansed both physically and spiritually. This helps the healing to come through in a clear way, without being distorted or sidetracked by negative “stuff” in either the healer or the client. The elders say that all ceremonies, tribal or private, must be entered into with a good heart so that we can pray, sing, and walk in a sacred manner, and be helped by the spirits to enter the sacred realm.
Native people throughout the world use herbs to accomplish this. One common ceremony is to burn certain herbs, take the smoke in one’s hands and rub or brush it over the body. Today this is commonly called “smudging.” Continue reading
