There are numerous factors that could have caused you to switch from nasal breathing to mouth breathing throughout your life. Your body prefers you continue to breathe through your nose because the air is warmed, filtered for pathogens, and humidified. However, humans have one tenth the expected nasal area for a mammal of our size. This is compounded by the fact that we have no snout and a short neck. On top of these issues, almost half of the patients that come into my office have had some form of orthodontics that made their situation worse. Bicuspid extraction, maxillary headgear, and traditional mouthguards can all close the airway. We can no longer ignore the importance of an open airway – dentistry is changing as we know it.

For those of you living in the city, you may feel more vibrations than others. Cities have a lot of people at all times, and therefore a lot of different energy and vibrations going on in one small area. This energy can leak into your home that is in the city, which in turn will start to effect you if you do not have your home protected against this. To protect your home and make use of this property, put hematite close to any doors and windows. If you can, put the hematite stones on the windowsills. By doing this, the hematite will purify all of the energy that is coming into your home through these entrances. Since another one of the properties of hematite is to absorb negative energy, you can also use this hematite stone to cleanse your house of negative energies that are already there. If you believe that there is energy that is stuck, such as a traumatic memory, or your house is haunted, then a hematite stone may be just what you need to absorb and get this bad energy out of your home.

Hematite has many great properties that are very useful for day-to-day life. Hematite helps keep you grounded and focused, which you can then use to your advantage by pursuing and manifesting what you really want. The properties of this hematite stone will help you ground yourself in reality and not be taken away by overactive fantasies that have no bearing on real life. Hematite will help you think more logically and will inspire your creativity for new ideas. Hematite has properties to dispel and absorb negative energy, so hematite is great to be used as a healing stone. Hematite properties also allow it to be used as a stone to protect your home against negative energies and to protect yourself too. Since hematite dispels negativity, it is a great idea to use hematite with another stone that is known for increasing positive energy.
