The 2018 Global Wellness Trends Report prepared by the Global Wellness Summit (GWS) report makes for interesting reading. One of the eight mega-trends for the global wellness industry is Wellness Meets Happiness.
It attracted my attention since it casts an authoritative light on happiness as a requirement for enduring wellness. It also validates PHYTO5’s pioneering work in using its powerful vital energy balancing skincare line to work beyond the level of the skin and to reach through to emotions by way of vital energy balancing.
This important effort culminated in mid-2017 when we launched the “Beauty of Emotions” protocols¹ for facials, body treatment and energetic massage. The Beauty of Emotions treatments are made effective with our new generation energetic PHYTO5 products whose vibrational levels have been elevated to the quantum level. At the quantum level the products and Beauty of Emotions treatments act not only on the skin and vital energy but on emotions as well.
It’s only in the last 20 years that the idea of a science of happiness gained momentum. The conclusions reached so far have important impact on our physical, emotional, and spiritual state.
It is now crystal clear that happiness and wellness are intertwined.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda of India have always had that understanding. In our series of blog posts on the topic of wei chi (and our white paper entitled, Wei Chi and the Beauty of Emotions), we pointed to the ancient wisdom that the vital energy of our immune system can be destroyed by negative emotions and that conversely, nurturing human relationships are a critical strengthening factor of wei chi.
The relationship between vital energy balance, health of the organs, and emotional balance, is a core concept of ancient energy medicines. Negative emotions affect the organs in a detrimental way in the same way a blockage of vital energy does. Vital energy balance positively helps maintain both physical and emotional balance which is a pre-requisite to wellness.
The best manifestation of emotional balance is rewarding human relationships be they familial or social. Sustained social isolation is very negative to our health and happiness.
Unfortunately, the tech explosion, particularly the so-called smartphones and tablets that have become addictive for many people including our younger population, has driven a wedge between people in many ways. By trying to connect people in a “virtual" way, social apps have dismembered the nourishing value of live face-to-face connections. The Global Wellness Trends report cites a recent study that indicates we touch, swipe, or tap our smartphone an average of 2,617 times a day! This dramatizes the (negative) importance these devices have on our lives.
The obvious remedy is to disengage from the constant use of high tech devices and reconnect with nature and people, but there must be a quality to that reconnection. This reconnection with nature and people requires real engagement. It’s not about simply looking at nature. It’s about letting nature speak to us. It’s not about simply being with other people. It’s about learning and developing empathy.
Authenticity and honesty must underscore our experience which is a pathway toward a better awareness of our own true and higher selves.
Ultimately, implied in the entire effort to achieve happiness and wellness is the ultimate achievement of some degree of a spiritual awareness of our higher self. Through this more intimate understanding of ourselves we deepen the quality of our human relationships.
All this is not possible, however, when we largely reside in a negative emotional state so it is very important we do what we can to balance our emotions, using all the help we can get.
Sometimes this help comes from unexpected sources such as including the quantum effect of PHYTO5 energetic skincare products.
In it we see validation at two levels:
- Modern science validating TCM’s premise of a systematic connection between emotions and physiology;
- Validation for PHYTO5 with its new signature “Beauty of Emotions” treatments (facial, body treatment, and energetic massage). The products are formulated and the treatments designed to enhance our innate and often latent positive emotions. This is achieved by a breakthrough product formulation that delivers high vibrational potency and reaches to the core quantum level where all healing actually occurs.
