We are in the most globally transformational experiment in history. Can we turn this time of uncertainty into LifeQuake Miracles? Mother Earth is listening.
Dr. Toni Galardi
What and who we are listening to is critical to managing fear and strengthening our immune systems right now. I predict we are going to learn so much about the immune system in this pandemic and the role fear and serenity play in being healthy in the coming years.
According to psychologist Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, PhD, and immunologist Ronald Glaser, PhD, of the Ohio State University College of Medicine who were intrigued by animal studies that linked stress and infection. These pioneer researchers studied medical students. Among other things, they found that the students’ immunity went down every year under the simple stress of the three-day exam period. Test takers had fewer natural killer cells, which fight tumors and viral infections and of course, got sick.
They almost stopped producing immunity-boosting gamma interferon, and infection-fighting T-cells responded only weakly to test-tube stimulation.Managing stress, especially chronic or long-term stress (even if it’s not intense), may help people to fight germs.
Kiecolt-Glaser and Glaser confirmed this hopeful option by comparing the immune function of exam-stressed medical students given hypnosis and relaxation training with that of students without auditory training. At first, the immune responses of the two groups appeared to both go down. However, closer inspection revealed that some students took this exercise more seriously than others. ( Does that sound familiar?) Those who didn’t take relaxation training seriously didn’t fare so well; those who practiced conscientiously did actually have significantly better immune function during exams than students who practiced erratically or not at all.
The sounds we are listening to right now are so critical to our immune system function. The music we listen to is part of this but so is the feedback we get from well intentioned friends who’ve spent way too much time listening to the news. I encourage social distancing from negative messages.
21 years ago when I was conducting a study for my doctoral dissertation, my experimental method was a cassette tape that those in the case study would listen to during a certain period of time for relaxation. The control group listened to nothing except were instructed to observe their feelings during this critical month that I knew would be stressful from planetary influences lasting 3 months. I then instructed the experimental group to stop listening to the guided meditation for another month and record their stress response to determine the efficacy of the tape.
Well! I had an insurrection. The experimental group that had received the tape did not want to give up their recording of my voice inducing a relaxation exercise. I had to promise them the return of the recording once the one month second phase was over to retrieve it and save my research!
Although we are all sequestered right now, there is an opportunity to find your own music both metaphorically and literally. There is a wonderful children’s book that my web designer David Woolfrey shared with me called Giraffes Can’t Dance that I recommend getting if you can. The message is very much about using this time to discover “what lights you up to find your own dance”.
I had the honor to participate in a global virtual summit called Your Music, Your Way hosted by my colleague and friend Daniel Barber. This summit can be an opportunity for you to discover your own rhythm and true purpose along with hearing from experts in the field of music and sound healing, April 6th-12th.

Astrology Tips for Your Work Week
WOW. A lot happening right now.
1) Monday the 30th, the moon goes void of its course from 8:10 AM – 4:43 PM PDT. If you have a regular work day, focus on mundane tasks. Also a great day during this time to file taxes. The phrase to remember about void moon days is ” nothing will come of it.” Not the day to initiate new projects. We can also be a little spacier than usual so wait until Tuesday to go to the grocery store if you can or just be very patient with others.
2) Saturn has just moved into Aquarius for a few months. Aquarius rules humanity. Saturn rules structure. With Jupiter and Pluto still in Capricorn( the death and restructure of society), we are being called to come together as a global family. In July, Saturn will go back into Capricorn until December when it transits into Aquarius for 2 1/2 more years. This transition from Capricorn to Aquarius occurred just as everything got real in the U.S. We will see this transition again in November/December.
You building up your immune system and serenity practice, (whatever that is) now is the key to transformation for the world when the alignment of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto come back into conjunction around Halloween through December 15.
We are gradually moving into a completely new world but this will take time. Those who do not succumb to fear will experience giant leaps in their evolution in the coming two-three years.
3) Mercury will still be in “go within and meditate, practice stillness” Pisces where it has been for two months until April 10th when it joins the Sun in Aries. For this week, spend time watching and listening to things that soothe your soul. Listen deeply to your intuition and your sleeping dreams. What is calling you now?
4) VENUS goes out of bounds on Wednesday, April Fool’s Day for two months. Venus rules what we love, who we love and how we love. If placed with good aspects in certain houses, it influences our finances, as it rules the sign of Taurus which rules the house of the money we earn directly. If we are at home for half or all of this time, what you have to watch is EXCESS: turning to food, spending, whatever your addictions are can expand if you are not mindful . The market can swing wildly during this time. Further, Venus rules music and our values. Spending money on that which will support your true well being will spiral you up!
