7 Reasons Healing Doesn’t Occur

I just read an article titled, “The Dangers of Spiritualizing Your Psychological Problems” … boy did that resonate with me.  Made me think in a couple of different directions. The first is a joke about spiritualizing problems The Drowning Man … the story starts out like this:

“A fellow was stuck on his rooftop in a flood. He was praying to God for help.

Soon a man in a rowboat came by and the fellow shouted to the man on the roof, “Jump in, I can save you.”

The stranded fellow shouted back, “No, it’s OK, I’m praying to God and he is going to save me.”

Click on The Drowning Man link above if you don’t know the rest of the story.

The second direction my mind took is about confusing emotions and spirit. I’m particularly interested in this as I offer therapy for stress and pain relief.

I explain that emotions are both physical (chemical neuropeptides on cell receptor sites in our body) and also energetic (electromagnetic field, cellular bonds) and are associated with thought memories i.e. accidents, tests at school, ferris wheel, first kiss, etc. The thought memories and the emotions can be stored in the body causing triggers to similar events or simply creating a revolving racetrack that keeps coming back.

Prayer can be one way to help (always pray) but sometimes God works through regular means, through action, through His natural laws and the intelligence and the gifts He’s given to the people He created. It’s one way we get to share in His work of healing.

I help people release emotions through stress relieving bodywork and also through energy healing i.e. EFT (emotional freedom technique) and the Emotion Code. Energy work in the form of Einstein’s E=MC2 physics and biology type of energy work where E is energy, M is mass/matter and C is a wavelength of movement/speed of light. Energy work using tapping pressure, magnets, memory, intention, attention, focus, breathe.

Prayer is spiritual and works beyond the material world. Energy is God’s creation based on the physical laws of matter. Some people get spirit and energy mixed up. I’m trying to find ways to change that. Here is a chart offering 7 reasons why healing doesn’t occur. What are your thoughts? Is it easier to see the difference between spirit and energy?

Stress Less

I have always loved plants and nature. According to the bible they are God’s medicine. A couple of years ago (Oct. 2015) I decided to get more serious studying the chemistry of plant based therapeutics. I’ve always known essential oils were powerful and have recipes for pain relief, sleep, and respiratory support BUT there is so much to learn! Keytones and Oxides, Monoterpenes and Sesquiterpenols. 10-carbon molecules = great for diffusing, 15-carbon molecules with a hydroxyl functional group might clog a diffuser and would be better used for topical application or in an inhaler stick. I took three classes and invested 500 hours of study time (actually probably more counting the 15 case studies and final research paper). Here is the certificate of completion from the last of the three classes … I received it after my research paper on stress was reviewed and accepted. I’m officially a Certified Aromatherapist!

Aromatherapy Certification 11:2017

Here’s a recipe blend I had in my research paper:

This is a 2% evening blend for a 15ml glass roller bottle. This blend helps relax both mind and muscles to prepare the body for a restful sleep. Simply roll on neck and shoulders and rub in. ONLY use quality essential oils or you risk skin rash, allergic reactions, immune problems … unfortunately not all essential oils labeled pure are really pure, therapeutic, and unadulterated. I use and sell Doterra at https://www.doterra.com/US/en/site/relax and I also order from aromatics.com. I can also make this and other custom blends directed towards your unique needs!

STRESS LESS Blend

– 15ml jojoba wax
– 1d frankincense (Boswellia carterii)
– 1d lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
– 1d orange (Citrus sinensis)
– 1d sweet marjoram (Origanum majorana)
– 1d ylang ylang (Cananga odorata var. genuine)
– 1d vetiver (Chrysopogon zizanioides or Vetiveria zizanioides)

In the research paper I talked about vagus nerve innervations to different areas of the body and the connection to sympathetic nervous system arousal (the stress fight-flight-freeze response). The vagus nerve innervates the diaphragm and one way to bring in calm from a hard-wired perspective is to take deep breaths and extend the exhale. The vagus nerve also has one place in the body where it comes near the skin and that is behind the ears. Gently roll the STRESS LESS blend behind the ear and massage in. Then cup your hands, hold them up to your nose and inhale the relaxing aroma deeply for a count of 5 … slowly exhale for a count of 5 or more if you can.

That’s a one, two, three punch in knocking out stress. The essential oils directly send calming messages to the limbic (fear) area of the brain through the olfactory-limbic connection, the massage behind the ear helps to trigger the parasympathetic (relaxation) side of the vagus nerve, and deep breathing gives a body wide message that it’s safe to rest and digest. The STRESS LESS blend is great for people who have trouble winding down after a busy day; it’ll help prepare your body for a rejuvenating sleep!

________________________

Have you started to detox at all? If so, your body is probably very happy! It’s a slow process moving towards optimum health. So many bad choices surround us daily. If you haven’t started, then pick just one thing to change. That’s all, just 1 thing. The outcome in chaos physics is based on one small thing changing the entire picture.

This month I’d like to share some more supplements that help with detoxing. Last month was supporting the liver through milk thistle. This month, I’ve been detoxing through Sunfood’s Broken Cell Wall Chlorella Tablets – chewing the nutty tablets morning and evening about 10-12 a day. I’ve also been taking a drop of Cilantro essential oil morning and evening. And adding in Advanced Research’s Lithium Orotate 120mg tablets.

OMG – I can feel it. This month is a break through month. I feel more energy. I’m walking more miles and feel like I can start running again. I’m needing less sleep and getting more done by day without any exhaustion. In fact, I feel like I’m glowing with energy! For a few days I had loose bowels … a detox type of reaction I’m sure. But this energy is worth it!

I hope it’s beginning to come together for you too. That you’re feeling on top of your health too? It’s never too late to start! Life’s moments are too beautiful not to enjoy! God Bless You~

 

 

 

Busy Week

I got a lot of business done last week at work, 72 hours. It was satisfying. But I needed a get-a-way. My husband and I were planning to spend a couple of days upnorth.

Upnorth is a Michigan term. Many people from the southern counties have cottages in the upper counties. There has been a cottage in my family since the 60’s.

At the last minute a horse came up lame and required care. My husband had to stay home. So I ventured upnorth by myself with an armload of books … science fiction, fantasy, romance.

20171029_102557

I arrived in the early morning  after a 4-hour drive and promptly unloaded the books, grabbed some chips and pop (AKA soda to non-Michiganders), and sat down with a satisfying plunk. Three hours later, I needed to stretch and walk.

The cabin is on a 2-track lane and there are black bears in the vicinity. I worried a little bit and didn’t walk too far away. Who would I call for help? Nobody was around. I walked back and decided to take a nap.

That felt good. Got up and started reading again. Finished one book and the temperature was starting to fall. It would be below freezing tonight. There is no running water and you have to use an outhouse (the little yellow building behind the cabin). The toilet seat was COLD!

A truck went by with young boys, I’m in such a secluded area and have no weapons. I thought of the bears, what if one was by the outhouse in the night? My imagination began to form it’s own novel, a frightening one with all the “what if’s.”

Fear got the best of me and in cowardice, I packed up and went home to safety. Yes, I did get in some reading and relaxation but I’m just not as independent or hardy as I like to think of myself. And that disappoints me in a way, but another part of me says to just allow it to be information and stop the self recriminating judgement.

It’s OK. I can always try again another day. Besides, it WAS something different, a weekend break, a get-a-way from a busy week. And for all of who do travel alone and do it confidently and can “rough it out” in remote areas … you have my utmost respect!

Another trip around the sun …

Granite Earth and Water Energy

I found a rock on my birthday. I’m fond of stones. Collecting them here and there and placing them in my rock garden.

This one caught my eye. It’s granite. Common in the midwest where I live. It’s mostly black and white but has some pinks and greens and crystal sparkles.

Granite is mostly feldspar and quartz. Feldspar is a major part of the earth’s crust, so it’s no wonder that granite is seen as a grounding earth stone. And quartz is a crystal I like to use in therapy. In electronics, quartz is used to ‘purify’ the frequency of energy. Since the human body has it’s own biofield of energy, I figure why not add quartz to help even out the rough painful edges of the wavelengths in a person.

When I looked up granite on the internet, I found that it is associated with the Libra zodiac. Interesting … my birthday is in that zodiac. Happy Birthday to me. lol.

One website states the characteristics of granite are protection and seeing the bigger picture. Cool. It’s also suppose to be a stone of abundance bringing money. That made me think of the expense of a granite countertop, so yes, granite can bring in money. lol.

Another website says that granite can be used for healing toxic areas. Releasing toxins has certainly been a major theme for me in the past year. Granite is also supposed to be useful for healing disorders of the face and head … hum … maybe this little birthday stone will become a pet rock (I’ve definitely aged myself with that idiom) and I’ll sleep with it near that darn painful trigeminal nerve on my face. JK.

I like my little whimsical stone and all it’s possible meanings. It seemed special finding it on my birthday and felt a little magical to read about it. But now it’s time to get down to earth and buckle in for another trip around the sun.

Everything is Energy

I’m sitting on a chair, I’m writing on a computer, I’m looking out the windows of my house … how can “everything is energy” be true? I’m a physical being in a material world.

I understand why people think that way. It’s hard to comprehend what’s under the surface when there is so much that’s “substantial” in our face. But it’s the belief about what energy is, that just needs a little light shed on it.

If we think energy is invisible, out there somewhere, unable to grasp, then of course the “everything is energy” statement makes no sense. Literally, it can’t be sensed with touch, taste, smell, sight or hearing. Wait … or can it?

Yes, energy can be touched … we know if we’ve been zapped by an electric fence (you can tell I live on a horse farm) or if we are burned by hot coffee. And yes, energy can be heard … all sound waves are energy. Oh, and yes, energy can be seen, all the colors of the rainbow are energy waves.

Ok, so energy can be sensed. We know a magnetic field is energy. We know lasers are energy. But how can everything be energy? What is a table made of? Wood. What is wood made of? Wood molecules. What are wood molecules made of? Atoms. What are atoms made of? Protons, electrons, and lots of space. What are protons and electrons? Well, they are the stuff of energy that makes up matter. So matter (i.e. a wood table), in it’s most basic form is vibrating particles? It’s waves of energy? Actually, yes.

Einstein understood this when he wrote his famous equation for energy E=MC2. E is energy, M is mass, C is movement. Energy is a moving particle. I think we can all agree that light is energy. Light is made up of photons. Photons are little packets of light. But did you know that photons are both particles and they are moving? Light can be measured as one or the other, as a particle in space or as speed of movement (but interestingly, not both at the same time).

So if at the basic particle level, everything is energy and filled with all that space between electrons … how does anything appear solid? It’s the electromagnetic bonds. The “glue” that holds things together. Is it surprising that medical professionals are studying healing of disease and pain and emotions using the science of energy? If everything is energy, then your body is energy and disease is energy, and the energies are impacting each other. And drugs are simply a manipulation of energy through the chemistry of the body.

Does energy medicine work? Does it work without drugs? Can the bodies own internal energies be stimulated or supported or decreased so the body can heal itself naturally? It’s a pretty new science, but the answer is yes. I’ll be going to a science based workshop this weekend put on by the Association of Comprehensive Energy Psychology on research in energy medicine.

One form of energy medicine is called the Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping) and here is the conclusions of a meta-analysis:

“Despite being very selective about the studies, the researchers found that there is more than ample evidence to support that EFT substantially reduces symptoms of depression at all three recorded time intervals.

The authors calculated that there was a “weighted mean” reduction in depression symptoms by a whopping 41%.

Interestingly, the researchers also looked at meta-analyses of psychiatric medication and therapy studies, and discovered that tapping reduced depression symptoms at a much higher rate than either of those accepted treatments.”

READ MORE HERE.

 

EFT/Tapping, a form of energy medicine, was better at reducing symptoms than traditional treatments. Wow! Isn’t that fascinating? I can’t wait to learn more research this weekend!

Next week I’ll be offering a teleconference using energy healing techniques to help give a boost to everyones immune system. It’s on Thursday October 26. I’ll briefly explain the science theory behind energy healing and will offer a healing experience for those attending. Aren’t you curious? Why not take a little time for yourself, get ready for the cold and flu season, learn a bit more on an interesting cutting edge topic and join me?

SLOW DOWN!

I’m feeling it, life is moving at too fast of a pace, too much to do and too few days in the week. My body is starting to ache from the strain. I know better, so why do I allow this to happen?

I take Sunday off. I feel somewhat guilty and an urge to go online. I don’t. I walk instead. It’s not easy but I make myself step off the treadmill and into nature.

The little things come back into focus again.

My puppy is growing up and I don’t want to miss out on those important bonding and training moments. She’s thrilled with all the attention.

At the end of the day I’m rested, relaxed. Life doesn’t pass me by, I’m a part of it. I don’t want Sunday to end.
