How to protect your hair from Chlorine!! By Julia Corso

As a kid who loves to swim and spends a lot of time in the pool. I notice as temperatures climb , I find myself going for a cold dunk  in the pool. Swimming is most peoples  favorite summer activity. It's a body workout thats fun. But there is one bad side about swimming in the pool, it has so much chlorine 

 

"Chlorine is used as a disinfectant to kill harmful bacteria in the water. This keeps you from getting sick from E. coli and other nasty germs, but it also strips out the natural oils that protect your hair from damage and daily wear. Since I don't want my hair to turn into hay, I've learned to coat my strands with hair product before I jump into the pool." – MIN-JA LEE

so i have some tips so that cant happen 

1. put coconut oil in hair before and after swim

2.try Pantene pro-v bb cream 

3. shower imidetely after swim shampoo and condition an leave condoner until next swim TRY ONES BELOW

Ear Candling, Restore Balance Tap into YOUR inner power!! by Cherie Corso

Ear candling feel so good and you will be shocked when you see what comes out! I know it sounds scary to some when I say Im going to put a candle in your ear and light it on fire. Let me explain the history. "Ear candling/coning can be understood as an ancient healing modality – Atlantean, Mayan, Egyptian, Tibetan – which has many other healing practices, periodically spent time in "hiding". It was originally used in conjunction with initiation practices for spiritual leaders in order to strengthen their positions a s bearers of great truths and as beacons of light in the darkness. Ear coning was used to open the spiritual centers and to clear and cleanse the physical as well as emotional and other auric bodies. It was used in conjunction with other healing practices and assumed a co-creative position with these practices. Traditionally, conings were performed by master energetic healers who worked on the physical as well as intermediate planes.Conings were performed in the temples and usually occurred in a series of three, spaced strategically apart. The number of conings performed was individualized and depended upon either the amount of clearing which was necessary and/or the spiritual appetite of each person. Although seven conings were average, at times, as many as eleven conings were performed. Nine and eleven conings were considered to be aligned with the master numbers in numerology. Receiving nine or eleven conings symbolized achieving human perfection toward universal service Ear conings worked upon the physical body by detoxifying the sinus, lymphatic and other systems. Among other things, they provided clarity of hearing and vision, improvement in the sense of smell, taste and color perception as well as emotional stability and sharer mental functioning. In addition to working upon the physical body, coning worked directly with the chakra system to clear an strengthen the auric bodies as well. Traditionally, the first seven conings worked to clear and strengthen the physical body and the first seven layers of the auric field. Each coning would ALWAYS affect the physical body and then affect whichever auric layer needed most to be cleared at that moment. For example, the first coning affected the physical body and either the first auric layer (etheric body) or the second auric layer (the emotional body) or the third auric layer (the mental body-thought forms) or the fourth auric layer (the astral body) or the fifth auric layer (the etheric template-associated with sound healing) or the sixth auric layer (the emotional level of the spiritual plane) or the seventh auric layer (the mental level of the spiritual plane-past life band and present life plan).In Egypt, however. at various times, auric bodies were intercepted and provoked to release blocked energy in a sequence. For example, the first coning affected the physical body and the first auric layer, the second coning affected the physical body and the second auric layer and so on through the first seven conings. The eighth, ninth, tenth, and eleventh conings were performed in order to clear and strengthen the physical body and those bodies in the cosmic plane of existence – those crystalline bodies composed of extremely fine, high vibrations. These conings were thought to totally purify the physical body and to fine tune the auric field in order to allow one to resonate in the purist from in preparation for supreme service.It must be realized that coning was done simultaneously and coordinated with advanced haling practices using color, crystal, sound, and other soon to be revealed methods, to correct the obstructed natural flow of energy, balance the system, realign the spinal structure and cleans the body. These healing processes ritualistically purified individuals, allowing them to resonate to the highest vibrational frequencies. Realize, also, that upon your earth plane at this time, the number of conings required by individuals will be directly related to any other healing processes to which they are simultaneously exposed. I do ear cadling, in conjuction with Chakra Clearing. Many spa are now offering this servive. My favorite is Nicholas Day Spa and Salon in Pelham, NY. You will feel great!! No chemicals, all natural, gets the cob webs out and the energy flowing!
