Change your story

Change your story

We all have one. What I mean by that is, problems, obstacles and plain old drama. Life is a groundhog slog of people’s stresses, karmic ties and fate that deals out all sorts of adversities. It’s not personal. Yet there are consequences for all actions. Although, on a deeper spiritual level you have possibly agreed to the family you have chosen, the friendships that have chosen you and the bad hip and insomnia that often plagues you at 3am. But you are not the only one. Other people too inhabit this planet and have their fair share of hardships.

But where does it take us when we talk about it? It takes us more into it, into the pain, back into the emotion, right back to the moment it all started, when he said she said. Does it really benefit us to tell the same story over again? Psychologists say it’s therapeutic in the beginning, but after a while it keeps you in this self-importance state of “that’s my story and I’ll tell it if I want to”. But just when you start feeling better, you race back to sharing your story with someone else again. It confuses your cells and your state of mind, as you start to believe you literally are re-living it out again. Your body and mind doesn’t actually know the difference between what you see and what you start feeling. This then manifests into unpleasant physical symptoms, you start to feel bad again, but you’re getting attention from those around you that choose to keep listening, so you think it must be good.

In other words, don’t let the problem, symptom or your disease keep taking over the story. Don’t hang onto its every word like it’s your only life line. Instead say “I decide now to close the book on that story and rewrite a brand new one!” Visualise that you are moving that old story energy out of you and reclaiming back your power. Choose the vibration that is always lighter, happier and more fun.

So when you next hear someone telling their victim story, or you are about to tell yours, rethink it. Honestly ask the question, will either of you benefit and grow from it? If the story doesn’t teach us or lift our vibrational feeling, then decide to choose a new story. Perhaps talk about the new stuff that you want in your life, all the goodness that is about to come into your new existence. Now that’s something to get excited about. Let go of the old stuff so it can finally let go of you.

Is health all that physical?

Is health all that physical?

Well if you asked me this 10 years ago, I would have said yes, but through all my experiences both personally and professionally as a Naturopath and now Energy Healer I would have to say, there is more going on than what meets the eye.

The big bang started for me when I had just finished my bachelor in naturopathy and set out to start consulting work. It was with my very first client that a world unknown to me opened up in the most unusual and frightening way. The client was telling me about her health problems and I was taking notes, hoping not to miss anything, when suddenly the room changed and so did my reality. I noticed colours swirl around my client and could feel emotions that could only have belonged to her. Literally in a spin, I couldn’t concentrate on her words and watch the array of hallucinations dance before me. My mind was racing, please shut down! Immediately it stopped and the room returned to normal, phew, was all I could manage.

Desperately I wanted to be a normal naturopath and practice with herbs, nutrients and diet, but the universe had other plans. I often ignored these gifts – or at times curses – for a few years until I could neither escape the energies that surrounded myself or my clients. I also found that traditional naturopathy treatments weren’t cutting it for everyone. Inevitably, I needed to change, let go and flow with this new path and once I did, some results were instantaneous.

A woman who had suffered from diarrhoea for years, had been to many different doctors, naturopaths and health practitioners for treatment, yet had no improvement. At the time I wasn’t even sure that I would be able to help her. After the first healing, we arranged for her to come back a week later to discuss her progress. When she returned, she said that the day after the healing, the diarrhoea stopped completely. Both of us were thrilled with the results and I was beginning to understand the great importance of removing these energies/blockages from people, in order to heal.

Energy can cause many disturbances. Sometimes we harbour emotions in certain parts of our body, or a past life is blocking us and other times there are literally energy attachments that are keeping us unwell. Energy healing looks at the human being as a spirit energy system, and my belief is that all the answers to health are within that field. It’s important to have stillness in your life to connect with your body and spirit and find awareness of what could be going on within you. Health isn’t just physical, it’s on many levels. What level you are choosing to focus on is where you’re at right now, but consider other levels if you want holistic healing.
