CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Supercharge Your Dopamine Levels And Never Feel Sad, Stressed Or Depressed Again”

Did you know that we have chemicals in our brain that make us feel good? One of the most important is dopamine — also known as the ‘feel good chemical’.

Having reduced levels of dopamine can lead to adverse effects like depression and negativity.

But don’t worry, there are natural ways to increase your dopamine so you can experience a more constant level of happiness. Best of all, the following techniques don’t involve medications.

1. Exercise.

Exercise can boost your levels of endorphins, serotonin and dopamine, which will not only strengthen your muscles, but will help reduce your stress. The best bit? It works with any kind of exercise – just as long as you get moving!

2. Avoid addictions.

While addictions may provide an instant boost of pleasure, it isn’t long-lasting. What eventually happens is that your base levels of dopamine will actually decrease and you will need your addiction more often. Therefore, it can beneficial to avoid addictions and focus on things that give you calm and peace.

3. Detoxify.

Toxins and unhealthy bacteria can halt your body producing dopamine, so make sure to consistently detoxify your body.

4. Increase Tyrosine.

This amino acid is one of the most important for the production of dopamine. Make sure to consume almonds, bananas, dark chocolate and green tea.

5. Listen to music.

Music actually increases your feel good chemicals, so make sure to regularly listen to music you enjoy.

6. Organize your life.

When you complete a goal, dopamine levels are increased. Therefore, write down your tasks, even small ones, and tick them off once you complete them. Every time you finish a task, you’ll experience a small rush of dopamine for completing your goal.

7. Be creative.

Being creative releases dopamine. The great thing is creativity can be found in a whole range of tasks from writng to singing to dancing.

8. Get a streak going.

This is a visual display of the number of times you achieve something. Again, by displaying things you achieve, your brain will recognize that you’re completing goals which will increase dopamine.

9. Supplement.

These are the supplements that can boost dopamine levels:

  • Curcumin — found in turmeric
  • Ginkgo Biloba
  • Acetyl-L-Tyrosine
  • L-Theanine — found in green tea

10. Meditate.

This works differently compared to exercise.

It will make you more calm and relaxed, which will enable you to reduce stress.

INSPIRATION FOR THE DAY ~ Moments with Millie: “Never Too Late”

I visited my elderly client who is under hospice care this morning.  She was asleep in a wheelchair in the hall of the facility.  I grabbed another wheelchair and sat in front of her.

She woke to my touch.  “Hello, darling!  How are you?”

Disoriented she looked at me and said that she was okay but didn’t like where she was at.  She went on to complain until I smiled and asked her a few questions.  She nodded then and agreed it wasn’t so bad.  Her dementia has progressed significantly the last month as she is transitioning.  She even said she was waiting for me but she has no clue who I am.

“Tell me something new, my love?”  I asked.

“I was at a concert yesterday.  The entire day.  They played black people music.”  Her blue eyes opened widely.

“What’s black people music?”  I asked waiting for some logical answer.  She has been a racist all of her life and extremely feisty.  She’s been verbal about it.  But today I saw change.

“You know… black music!”

“You mean, like soul music.… Music that gets into your soul and makes you move with the best beat?”

“I guess.  They asked me if I wanted to stay and I told them I was happy to.  I needed that music.”  In the midst of her delusion “they” are people of authority.  She continued explaining how the music made her feel.  She kept sighing and sharing the lightness in her body.

It was absolutely delightful to witness this.  Her story was fascinating.

I got off the wheelchair and dropped to my knees in front of her.  She touched my cheek.  I rubbed her hands.  I kissed her soft skin.

“Oh sweetheart, I feel that’s heaven.  Don’t you?  There must be soul music up there. I like to believe that there is the sound of black people jazzy music in the afterlife.  I want to believe there is some Louisiana symphony that makes you come alive….”

She interrupted me,  “Yessss!  I want that.  I want to dance to black people music in heaven.  Oh yesss!”  Her eyes tearing with such loving awareness.  It was pure yumminess.  And a gift of awareness for me.

Folks, it’s never too late to have a change of heart.  It’s never too late to change your ways.  It’s never too late to accept the world and rejoice in diversity.  Ohmygosh…. to witness this woman transform before her death and allow herself the acknowledgment of equality is huge.  She’s 85.  It’s never ever too late.

I walked out listening to the sounds of soul music from heaven.  She’s ready to go home.  I hear the trumpets playing….

~m.a.p.

ANGELINA STOJIC: “Connect To Your Sound — The Healing Power Of Your Voice”

It is no secret that music and sound is part of our every day life and that it is a very integral part of healing and relaxing in general. It is also becoming a very big part of scientific research on how sound or music can heal the mind and body on a cellular level.

The chakras resonate with certain notes, the brain is stimulated with classical music, molecules reverberate to certain frequencies, and let us not forget to mention the fantastic Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto who showed us what music does to water. As our cellular structure is primarily made up of water this was an extraordinary and wonderful representation of how music or sound changes our makeup.

This information for many of us, is not news. We have known this intrinsically for many many years. Music or sound is a frequency. As we are beings made up of energy, sound is just one frequency that we can access via very easily for health, healing and change.

Sound is a perfect medium for our bodies to absorb and enjoy currently of our transition or evolution. It is a simple easy medium of healing we can access.

Sound Can Change The Structure Of Our Cells

Sound comes to us in many ways. One of the most powerful and unique tools we have is the sound of our voice. Unique to you, our voice, the tone, the sound of our voice can create that change within the cells. Just like our bodies, faces, fingerprints and teeth, our voices are all different. The tone, the reverberation, the intonations, the sound. We all have unique voices. We all have a unique sound.

So, if we have a unique sound or frequency that aligns with our body mind and spirit, do you feel this too may be a key to our own healing and access to our own power of health?

The Sound Of Your Voice Is A Powerful Healing Medium

My purpose for this piece is to remind you that the sound of your voice, the tone of you is very particular and very important. The sound of you is part of your healing and health power. By using your voice with the intention of healing self, is a very powerful thing to do.

We all resonate at our own frequency. We all have the sound of our healing within our tones. Learning to access your healing tones from within is a simple process and something you can do every day if you choose. There are many ways to access your healing power of your tone or your sound and below are a few ways to connect.

Singing with music — To sing with your voice with a song you love is a great way to lift your vibration. Lifting your vibration is about lifting your state of wellbeing.

Singing with no music — To sing with no music and just belt out a song you love in the car or at home with your sound alone is also very powerful. This has no other frequency but your own playing and singing for you and your body.

Engaging your Voice with Breath — This is simple exercise to do and is just the pure act of breathing in and then sounding your voice on the breath out. Allowing the natural sound to be expressed. You can play with this and hold onto the sound at the end of your breath. Or you can start on a high note and allow it to drop as you release your breath.

Humming — Again very simple sound that you make with your voice. This is a beautiful gentle way to engage your sound and tone with the healing of your body. It is a gentle internal sound that sits within you. A hum to your favourite song, or a free hum, it is a very peaceful way to help with a calm and internal massage for self.

Sing Song Words — Like affirmations you can gently put sound to affirmations, words or sentences to lift the vibration and allow the tone to work with your system also.

The purpose of your voice or sound is to shift and lift the frequency, to shift and lift the vibe of your body, which lifts the vibe of your cells, which produces new cells in a higher vibe format.

This all sounds very simple. And that is the point. It is meant to be simple. We have the tools within us to help us and this is just one of the ways we can access our truth and pure potential. You may even enjoy your own way of using your voice.

To be honest, whatever it is you do with your sound, your tone, your voice, will affect your body, mind, emotional and energic system. With words, song, whistles, hums, or screams, is allowing you to connect to your frequency, your vibe, your health and healing.

Our voice can help us release and let go of shit we no longer need or help heal us internally with gentle sounds of love.

Regardless how you choose to work with your voice, tone or sound, know it is a very powerful tool in your life. It is part of our connection to creator. It is part of our connection to self. Recognise the voice within by connecting to the sound of your voice intentionally. With love and with a knowing that you are unique and beautiful.

In La La La La Light!

ZOE DAVENPORT: “New Moon Energy Update”

“If movement and music feel good in the heart, if it brings a smile it will be feeling good for the body, allow the voice to also activate through what sounds it needs to make to clear through those unspoken words. Scream, shout, let it all out with this new moon as the energy will certainly carry an expanded potential to release on the subatomic layers of your being.”

~Zoe Davenport

 

If you have been feeling the collective energies it could be described as somewhat chaotic and a sense of moving backwards in time as the mind looks to rationalise the emotions coming out to play by hashing up old events, stories and timelines.

As we are moving into a very important part of 2018, to keep on track with what the heart is communicating on more subtle levels through the body, intuition and allowing things to sit and wait out a little more before acting upon.

The most effective way to clear through any old stuck energy right now is movement, get outside and play in the sunshine, dance around in your living room listening to your favourite music, shaking, jiggling, anything to get the body moving through the cellular memories of old beliefs.

It’s a conditioning with the mind/body and spirit to balance out so the cells can restore through the cleansing of carbon density, move into a more fluid way of creation, and resonate with more light.  This comes from attuned vibration through activating your energies in a way that is taking away from the mind and rational thoughts to stepping into what FEELS good in the NOW.  This new moon is will be feeling good with movement, play, jumping!

If movement and music feel good in the heart, if it brings a smile it will be feeling good for the body, allow the voice to also activate through what sounds it needs to make to clear through those unspoken words.  Scream, shout, let it all out with this new moon as the energy will certainly carry an expanded potential to release on the subatomic layers of your being.

This is a time to be inspired though yang, action through joy, movement through alignment to what the body needs to wake up, get going to flow through.

Talking is done, there is no more need to keep going over the “minds” “rational” version of events right now, it is quicker to call the body to the party to let go and surrender through being free in the moment to express how it needs to.

This will be a powerful time leading up to the summer solstice energies on the 21st June 2018 and the new moon movement energies are able to hold the frequency to the newness of what wants to manifest into the second half of 2018.

The movement will create a balance energetically as the body is feeling safe through self-expression and joy to release stuck beliefs.

This is a time of newness as our bodies are shifting and are needed to be loved unconditionally through the process, the old loops and cycles of past events cannot settle when there is a continued flow of energy throughout so keep moving and shaking and this yang will hold us safe through the shifts.

Set the intentions and allow it to feel good in the body, in the energy centers, in the heart, call in for support from the collective, and continue to play through each emotion by understanding then moving and activating the voice.

Don’t be afraid of self-expression through movement and play it will be an integral part to ascension and stepping into more fluid dimensional experiences and stuck energy cannot shift when the focus is on stuck energy is needs fluidity and light to flush through.  Much like the body detoxes so too the energetic systems need a clearing and moving, shaking and the voice will support and expand this process.

Shake, shake, shake, dance, jiggle, wiggle, scream, shout, let it ALL out, these old paradigm emotions have no space to reside within the cells of joy and love so allow a joyful new practice to come into motion this coming week and you will feel more abundantly supported, clear less stuck and spacious within the cells.

Abundant Blessings | Zoe Davenport
