Health through Your Eyes: Understand and Use Iridology

Health through Your Eyes: Understand and Use Iridology

Author: ,Julien Allaire Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/11/2020

The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. But illness has meaning and can express mineral or vitamin deficiencies, inherited or acquired weakness, or the location of toxins in the system. An approach focused on treating them doesn't cure the pathology that caused them, and they can show up in another manner. Iridology is a method of examining the iris, the colored portion of the eye, to establish an assessment of health and vitality. By analyzing the color, the texture, and the pigmentation of the iris, we can determine inherited and genetic predispositions toward certain illnesses. Iridology can contribute to the well-being of the person by treating the origins of the symptoms. Observing the body's needs through the panoramic view of the iris, you can take care of your health in a simple and efficient manner. Discover the benefits of iridology.

When we enter a theta brain state, we are able to connect to the Creator of All That Is - in this state, we download incredible knowledge that has the power to heal us from the inside out. ThetaHealing is a healing modality that utilizes focused prayer in combination with theta brain waves to enable powerful shifts in subconscious beliefs, transforming them into positive patterns. The one requirement that is absolute with ThetaHealing is the central belief in an energy that flows through all beings: The Creator of All That Is. The Creator goes by many names: God, Allah, Life Force, Yahweh, Goddess, Holy Spirit, Jesus, Source, etc. Whatever name you use for it, it is the driving force of all life on Earth, and the energy that we connect to in a theta brain state to activate spiritual, emotional and physical healing. In her first book, Vianna explained the step-by-step processes of ThetaHealing - belief work, feeling work, digging work and gene work - and offered an introduction to the seven planes of existence. In this book, she gives detailed instructions to connect to the Creator when we have climbed through the seven planes, and, most importantly, the fascinating knowledge that the Creator then shares with us in that state. This knowledge first changed Vianna's life in 1995 and has since transformed thousands of people's lives.

She examines each chakra individually on the physical, psychological, psychic, and spiritual level, as well as through the lens of the solar (masculine) and lunar (feminine) channels. She shows how the connections between the chakras and developmental stages are paralleled in the findings of Western psychology and neuroscience and how our collective expressions of the chakras influence cultural trends in society. The author's system of Chakra Therapy integrates healing touch with guided chakra visualizations, offering practical exercises to nourish and balance each chakra so it can be integrated and in harmony with the entire chakra system. She explores how to work with the Heart Chakra for deep transformation and self-healing, including healing emotional wounds from childhood and enabling the psychic and spiritual levels of the Throat and Eye Chakras to develop, with the potential of opening to the divine realm of the Crown Chakra. Sharing case studies from her Chakra Therapy practice, she shows how we gain a richer understanding of ourselves both mentally and physically by working with the chakras, opening ourselves to the potential for deep soul growth and transformation.
