1 BREATHING

Why do we need Oxygen?

It’s a simple answer: we die without it.

Think of a candle flame burning.  What happens when you cut off the air supply?  Right, the fire dies.

However, with plenty of fresh Oxygen circulating, the candle flame keeps dancing.  Same thing happens with our cells.

The underlying understanding of cellular metabolism is a little more complicated, but not much.    

We’ve all heard about how brain death occurs in 7 minutes without Oxygen.  With an ample supply,  our brain cells do a better job of staying alive and working away to repair and replace themselves ... naturally ... along with all of the rest of the trillions of cells of all types that make up our human body.

Now, how about Breathing?

Sure, we all do it automatically.  However, the majority of us have unconsciously developed the habit of shallow, upper chest respiration, causing a limited supply of O2 to enter the lungs.  Since all cells need it, especially where there is dis-ease or damage to repair, we'd better get lots of it!  Most commonly, we don't.

So, doesn’t it make sense to do whatever it takes to deliver fresh, rich, life-giving Oxygen into the air you (and those around you) are breathing all the time?  

And wouldn't it be wise to breathe it in a way that develops your fullest lung capacity to insure that each and every cell (from your head to your toes) can survive and thrive? 

Here’s how . . .

FULL-SPECTRUM LIGHTING
When we must be inside most of the time, and no sunshine streams in through the windows, many people (and animals) experience emotional darkness (depression; SAD -Seasonal Affective Disorder). It is also not possible to have live plants thrive indoors in rooms without sunlight. Thankfully, Full-Spectrum Lighting is now available, mimicking sunlight indoors. 

Read more . . . find links to websites to purchase Full-Spectrum bulbs, tubes, and fixtures. 


Here is a link to the Full Spectrum Light Bulbs you need for this purpose:

OttLite ED25-V-FFP 25W Edison-Based Swirl Bulb




Install Track Lighting so that the light shines from about 5 feet away from the leaves.














CLICK HERE for a standing Floor Lamp which provides  enough Full Spectrum Lighting for a group of plants to thrive in your treatment room.  

Ott-Lite is the originator of this concept and has the best products on the market for natural, indoor daylight.

HANGING CRYSTALS
There's nothing like an authentic rainbow to show you true colors, especially close-up, made visible from sunlight streaming through a crystal, hanging in an East-facing window in the morning when the sun is rising; or, a West-facing window in the afternoon, just before sunset. If you see the value of imprinting the 7 colors into your mind, remember the acronym, ROY G BIV [Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet]. Then hang your crystals and wait for sunrise each morning. Spend your day as a radiant prism generating light. Reinforce the brightness before the sun goes down. Focus your eyes on the colors while practicing Breathing Techniques.

HOLDING CRYSTALS

Holding  quartz and other crystals in your hands feels good.  

These clear quartz heart-shaped crystals fit perfectly into the contour of the palm, while the fingers wrap comfortably around the smooth rounded shape. Simply hold them, especially during your Power Nap.  




A fantastic resource for crystals is in Las Vegas.

To purchase a set of the above heart-shaped crystals, call Jewelry & Mineral of Las Vegas 702.733.7166 and ask for Mike.  Let him know that you are a friend of Jan Dacri (DAK-REE) and he will know what you want.  He is a wealth of information as a resource; and a very special person.  The huge store in Las Vegas is definately worth visiting if/when you are in town.  It is on Sahara, just north of The Strip.  Or . . . He will ship a set to you.  MasterCard/Visa.  Ask for the Basic Set of Hearts: includes two large Clear Quartz and one medium size heart-shaped crystal corresponding to each of the 7 Energy Centers.  You may wish to order an extra set of two Clear Quartz to keep in your pockets while you work or workout or take a Power Nap.  Good for use in combination with Acuscope-Myopulse Treatments.

They will accept credit card payment over the phone and will safely pack and ship your crystals anywhere.  These make great gifts for anyone "to have and to hold!"
