I always say (and feel that you should) surround yourself with that which is a reflection of you (and when not around you) is the best representation of you or can adequately represent you when you can’t defend or be present yourself.
If you’ve got that, you’re in good company and that’s company worth keeping around in your life. Either way, regardless: Don’t seek outside of and around you that which you don’t already have within you, yourself as, no energies can make you truly and long-lastingly feel, or be what you don’t already have in you. You have to have it in you all along.
Outside of people/energies/spirits, the same is true for the things around us as, I never thought of Feng Shui as some New Millennium fad that went away just because no one talks about it anymore; I’m auto-conscious of living by it as best as my productive little big life allows me-simply because I feel that the positioning of things in certain spaces do have a subconscious effect on us that too plays on our consciousness. Our senses of hearing, smell, touch, taste, and sight help create experiences for us that we can control, or position (around us).
They say salt is the earth’s mineral, but even better than regular (sodium laden) table salt, Himalayan pink salt has a wide variety of health benefits as, it contains, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium and highly regarded as the king of the all salts.
As I explained above (about having things already in, of, and around you), as well Himalayan salt is not only good to have in you, but around you too.
Apparently, chunks of pink salt (as lamps) produce ions and can help you with migraines, some skin conditions, insomnia, allergies and other disorders.
Fayetteville State U assistant professor of Physical Science Dr. Rahi is particularly interested in the relationship with ions and human health, stating: “As all living systems (including human beings) are bioelectric in nature, the electrically charged particles affect the way we feel and act. In natural setting; a balance of positive and negative ions contribute to ones sensations and perceptions. Atmospheric ions can affect health, well-being, efficiency, emotions, and mental attitude of human beings.”
Rahi says that placing these Himalayan salt lamps in parts of the home can reduce clutter of unhealthy ions and the result of doing so is almost immediate.
Pierce Howard PhD says this about negative ions and our bodies: “Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy. They also may protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritation due to inhaling various particles that make you sneeze, cough, or have a throat irritation.”
By contrast however, because salt does not contain an oxygen atom in its molecule, skeptics aren’t as convinced that it can do anything to exactly improve air quality.
However, since salt is made of one sodium and one chloride atom, it has a positive and negative charge. Bound together, they are an equally cation (positively charged ions)/anon (negatively charged ions) structure.
Reportedly, if the lamp were to release negative ions it would have to be a surplus of negative ions to which there is no surplus of negative ions in a salt lamp as, one can separate the ions in salt but it takes more energy than the heat produced/transmitted by a
