Gem Magazine May: Future me

For this magazine, everything that has been on Gem so far, and probably some things which have not been featured, is a huge help! And will ultimately lead to the following.

Talking about the absolute right nutrition, your circadian rhythm, taking the needed supplements, practicing mindfulness and making vision boards, writing yourself future letters, changing the navigation constantly on your plans, educating yourself and adjusting your social media and tv intakes etc.

This’ll be leaning more towards easy biohacking. Biohacking can mean so far as DNA research (which I’ve done btw), but for now, let’s keep it way more simpler.

Easy biohacking; meaning previously stated and mostly psychological biohacking.

So, welcome to the spring of 2022 and May!

Now, imagine a moment and place you’re in at in the future. Your own future, which you alone have created and manufactured.

Infact a key is to visualise yourself there; what you are wearing, what you’re eating or drinking (tea, coffee or perhaps something stronger?), and with who you’re with, or with whom you’re talking on the phone. Etc.

It can be kind of unsettling to see and live that specific moment in your future. Again going back to Feb/March issue with vision boards, it’ll not be a possible future, if there’s no work behind it. If you’ve never tried anything new, then nothing new happens…right?

Meditation is a great tool to help you see further. By meditation I’m not particularly talking about sitting cross-legged for 20min.

Each finds their own meditation features; whether it’s actually sitting in silence or a walking meditation etc. F.e mine is stopping to reroute many times a day while watching a numbing tv-show (on purpose, btw!), or being so active myself, I prefer walk/jog rethinking++out of the box thinking, while there’s movement and fresh air.

Or, just use a guided meditation. Quite easy, all you have to do is to relax.

GEM MEDICAL: Blood pressure

Hey you guys and welcome to a new (although planned couple months ago) segment, which is not close to the writer’s field, but on it! I’ll keep this fairly simple. Or at least try to. If weird words occur, then you can blame it on the writer for translation missteps.

• Chakra affected: the heart

The ‘normal’ vein can be counted: 24 = 16 in liquid (blood) resistance.

atherosclerosis = a disease that occurs when plaque is building up inside the arteries + in them are built pathological changes
~> higher workforce for the heart

Systolic pressure – the highest pressure in arteries during a beat of the heart

Diastolic pressure – their lowest pressure

A higher blood pressure (it varies from 140/90 mmHg – 160/95 mmHg ~> mercury millimeter)

Hypertension = straines the heart + blood vessels. Risk of getting f.e a stroke or an eye hemorrhage. Worsening together with atherosclerosis.

! At-home -blood pressure (RR) -measurement (automatic) is made easy.

Fyi or remembering: in maternity care the blood pressure measurements are more than familiar.

✔Google recommendations for spiritual (yeah s p i r i t u a l.) things to lower RR:

For example •reiki and saying a •prayer. Now, ok. They just might mean slowing down, a meditation or just focusing on breathing.

Medication f.e:

– Beta blockers: quiets down the sympathetic nervous system’s effect on and to the heart, lowers the heart beat

– Diuretics: volumes up the urinary excretion, lowers blood capacity

healthy lifestyle:
+ a smoke-free life
+ a regular exercise
+ nutrition
+ low sodium intake

GEM BOOKSHELF: THE BIOLOGY OF BELIEF, BRUCE LIPTON

Book’s cover:

“It has been 10 years since the publication of The Biology of Belief, Bruce Lipton’s seminal book on the relationship between mind and body that changed the way we think about our lives, our health and our planet. During that time, research in this field has grown exponentially – Lipton’s ground-breaking experiments have now been endorsed by more than a decade of scientific study.

In this greatly expanded edition, Lipton, a former medical school professor and research scientist, explores his own experiments and those of other leading-edge scientists that have unravelled in ever greater detail how truly connected the mind, body and spirit are. It is now widely recognised that genes and DNA do not control our biology. Instead, they are controlled by signals outside the cell, including energetic messages emanating from our thoughts.

This profoundly hopeful synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics puts the power to create a healthy, joyous life back in our own hands. When we transform our conscious and subconscious thoughts, we transform our lives, and in the process help humanity evolve to a new level of understanding and peace.
