Electricity is such a common utility that most homeowners don’t give it a second thought. But as our dependence on electronic devices has increased over the past few decades, so too has our reliance on electricity itself. And not all currents may be as “clean” as you might expect, dirty electricity surrounds us.
A recent report from Health Impact News, several researchers have found evidence of “dirty” electricity infiltrating our homes and affecting our health. Whether we live in the city or in the country it’s all around us. Power lines and ground currents now encompass much of North America, so no matter how far off the grid you live, you may still experience negative EMF health effects. Continue reading →
Weather and The State of the World can have a Negative Impact on You – leaving you tired, headachy and out-of sorts.
Many people have told us that they think they may be affected by the current political climate or other events around the world are affecting their nervous systems causing them to feel fearful and anxious, irritable, foggy brained, or even tired and depressed. You don’t need to be and HSP (Highly Sensitive Person or Empath) to feel some of the effects, especially when things are intense, we are all made up of energy and are affected in many subtle ways by what’s around us.

The Nationwide Children’s Hospital physicians have shown that there is an increasing trend for children and teens to experience more headaches in the fall when they go back to school. It can be tough, as a parent, to figure out if the headache is real or just resistance to going back to school, wanting to extend summer just a bit.
Experts speculate that the problems could be due to improper hydration and long periods of time on the computer in addition to stress. Other factors may include lack of sleep, caffeine and soft drinks, not enough exercise and missing meals. Read more
There are a couple of other factors that we feel could also be at play. Continue reading →
By now, many people realize just how potentially dangerous electromagnetic frequencies, or EMFs, can be in the home. We may feel WiFi radiation effects if our routers are left on all night. We may have difficulty concentrating after using laptops for too long. We may have noticed our children with more behavioral problems and other EMF exposure symptoms. If you have already taken the steps to block EMF at home, you have likely noticed what a difference it can make. Continue reading →
“I believe that slowness is an act of resistance, not because slowness is good in itself but because of all it makes room for, the things that don’t get measured and can’t be bought.” Rebecca Solnit, “Finding Time,” Orion Magazine, 2007
When we’re sensitive to other people’s emotions and struggles, holidays bring extra challenges. Winter celebrations bring their own craziness, the joy/grief cycle of memory, reunions and rituals that touch everyone to the core. Just riding our own rollercoaster is enough! But when we are empathic, we sense everyone else’s wild ride, too! It can be overwhelming. Continue reading →
Many of us are sensitive to environmental toxins, whether we know it or not. Once we become aware of our sensitivities, it’s easy to feel like as helpless as the canaries miners carried underground; if the bird got sick or died, it was a warning to the workers. We have more power than those poor birds. We can find ways to detox, clean up our environment, and protect ourselves.
It’s important to understand how to minimize and prevent symptoms before they become entrenched as chronic conditions or disease, but sometimes it feels overwhelming, doesn’t it?
There’s so much pollution in our world that scientists are identifying diseases, allergies and sensitivities that were uncommon or unknown only 50 years ago. One of the most common, and most invisible pollutants affecting our health comes from electromagnetic sources: electrical equipment and appliances to power lines, microwaves, cell phones, smart meters, wifi, computers and radio transmitters.
How do I know if I have EMS? What can I do about it?
What does an empath look like you ask? You, me, your mother, your Sister….. (this photo is me, AnnaMariah and my gold Shield is in my bra just in case you’re wondering why you don’t see me wearing it.)
You might be surprised at the answers to the question above. I’m writing this post and thinking about mothers in particular since Mother’s Day is almost here, but everything in here can apply equally to you at any time of year, whether you are a woman or a man. ( More women tend to be HSP/Empath’s so I’m using she here just for brevity)
We all know that woman who just seems to feel every emotion around her; cries whenever someone else does even in a commercial; and who seems to know what everyone around her thinks, feels or needs. Chances are this woman is a Highly Sensitive Person or an Empath. Continue reading →
