Undoing Health Mistakes

Earlier I posted an article – Five Most Critical Health Mistakes. It can sometimes feel hopeless, and perhaps even pointless, to try to overcome health mistakes. How can we work with options available to us to deal with toxins, poor diet choices, over-vaccinations, and many of the problems the affect our health in a safe, immediate way? The answers might be simpler than we think. Watch Undoing Health Mistakes below, then contact me if you have any questions.

 

Five Most Critical Health Mistakes

selfcareMistakes. We all make them, yet for some of us these mistakes feel irreversible. We ultimately experience damage, at least to some degree. Damage comes our way in the form of physical, emotional and spiritual selves as a result of choices, accidents, injuries, surgeries, toxins, drugs and environmental influences. Experiences and interactions with our environment, family members, and humanity can also take its toll on our health. What are some of the most common mistakes people make? What can we do about them to have a healthier life?

The Five Most Critical Health Mistakes

Processed Food – Perhaps the most important aspect of healthy living is offering supportive, restorative nutrients in the form of whole foods to our bodies. Basic cellular replication, immune function, sleep, energy level, mental clarity, performance, growth, repair and vitality all depend on what we feed our bodies. Yet one of the most common mistakes is consuming processed foods – the ones with preservatives and additives, mysterious ingredients that are hard to pronounce. Processed foods were designed to have a long shelf-life, fit into packaging, transport easily, and have an affordable price-tag. Cheaper ingredients that are not locally sourced fit the qualifications for many store-shelf items. The effect on the body is not completely understood, but we are seeing a disturbing trend of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and other chronic diseases increasing yearly at an alarming rate in the United States – a country that seems to boast the most expensive in health care with a not-so-healthy population. (* and ** below)

Toxins – Pesticides, heavy metals, flame retardants, plastics, chemical additives (in foods, personal care products, cleaning products, fabrics, and more) pervade every aspect of our personal environments. Once we become aware of these toxins, we realize it’s difficult to avoid them. The biggest mistake with toxins is our lack of awareness, and perhaps even our lack of willingness to do something about our personal toxicity. We all have a toxic burden of heavy metals – even if it doesn’t show up in a medical test for heavy metals. Heavy metals hide in body tissues, deep in the bones (osteoporosis), deep in fatty tissue that we have a hard time “losing”, and other not-so-obvious places. Toxins interfere with every body function including the blood’s ability to carry oxygen, the brain’s ability to think clearly and sleep well, muscle and joint flexibility, the viability of the immune system, and gut health.

Over-vaccination – Historically humans have had a long-standing fight with microbes. The fight against germs became well-documented with the discovery of the microscope and with the early biological tests of Pasteur, Salk, and Jenner. Now, it seems, we’re being pushed more-and-more toward a type of preventative health care that relies on vaccinations, a kind of artificially induced immunity that in itself may cause more harm than good. In fact, before the age of 6 years, it’s recommended or required that children receive nearly 40 doses of vaccines. (*** below). Many of these vaccines are administered in the first months of life – just when the immune system is developing at its own logical rate.

How did we stray so far from the simple, natural functioning of a healthy immune system? It feels like some of the newer vaccines target unlikely microbes, intimidating parents through guilt or fear should their child become stricken due to lack of caring enough to vaccinate. Though I’m not totally opposed to some vaccinations, I do believe we’ve reached a point that’s beyond ridiculous to a degree of deep concern for the deliberate injection of heavy metals (mercury, aluminum), other toxins, preservatives (formaldehyde), MSG, and antibiotics.(**** below).

Depletion. In a fast-paced culture it might be easy to overlook and even justify NOT taking care of ourselves. Parents, teachers and caregivers, as well as many other folks, are natural nurturers. We give, give, give, often at the expense of our own health. The result can be disastrous in the form of stress, anxiety, worry, mental health challenges, loss of sleep, loss of energy, and a compromised level of overall health. Depletion can manifest emotionally and spiritually as well as physically. We become depleted of vital nutrients absent in our foods. We become depleted of energy as we become even more connected to electronic devices that separate us from the natural atmospheric ions and magnetic energy of the earth. We become depleted of human interaction in a world that supports separation – of race, socioeconomic differences, gender orientation, cultural and religious preferences, and politically-influenced beliefs. Our depletion leads to fear and self-preservation as a priority of our egocentric nature, rather than wholeness, prosperity and abundance.

Narrow-mindedness. We live in an ever-changing world filled with marvelous discoveries and technology. Yet, the companies and government agencies that seem to say they want us to be healthy may be suffering from corruption in the form of skewed priorities – money and profit over natural health and wellness. We see this in genetically modified crops designed to be tolerant of pesticides – a plan that helped increase yields, but further poisoned our foods with pesticides and foreign genes. We see this in expensive designer drugs which treat symptoms without helping to balance body systems. We see this in marketing which promotes ill-begotten trust in a medical system that forgot about the basics of healing and doing no harm. Narrow-mindedness is on my list of most critical health mistakes because we, as a culture, most often choose to follow blindly what we’re fed through television ads and deception. Modern medicine doesn’t have all the answers, and I’m not sure they ever will.

Animal Guides and Teachers

When working with animal guides and teachers, we can summon the assistance of cards, images, sounds and artifacts related to animals. In my healing center, I invoke specific animals guides with crystal or wooden likenesses that serve as reminders of the qualities of each animal represented. For example, in the north corner of my space I have a wooden carving of an elephant. This elephant guide reminds of heavy structure, strength, connection to earth energies, and commitment to family. It feels very solid and affirming. Similarly, I also have actual representations of specific animals – feathers, fur or skin, fossils, and shells. These I either use directly in healing sessions, or place in their respective areas of the room.

Cards and images may also be used when working with animal guides and teachers. I especially like the decks and images from Susan Seddon Boulet who painted images for her Animal Spirits deck.

Medicine Cards: The Discovery of Power Through the Ways of Animals by Jamie Sams is a combination book and deck of cards through which you can do readings, card layouts, or selecting a single card for inspiration and guidance.

Animal Speak by Ted Andrews is another wonderful resource. Ted Andrews also has an inspirational card deck for working with animal guides.

No matter what your choice, begin your exploration in any way you are drawn. Animals, because they are grounded and of pure love & light are safe guides for anyone, from novice to advanced readers and healers. Let me know what you’ve chosen. I’d love to hear from you.

Animal Guides and Teachers

As Healers on the Healer’s Journey, we often find animals in our awareness. They’re either in our care as personal pets, in our environment, our dreams, and even displayed as decorations in jewelry, household items, and motifs. However animals appear to you, your awareness of them is key. Join us for this webinar as we touch upon Animal Guides and Teachers.

Usui Reiki 1 & 2 Together

Reiki, the Japanese method of healing and relaxation, has been present in its current form for many years. Yet, energy healing modalities are not limited to Reiki. There is, in fact, no limit to the possibilities of accessing Reiki energy as a healing modality. The limits I have found in working with Reiki for many years can be summarized with three vital points:

  1. Delay in action – Students who become attuned to Reiki level 1 sometimes become “stalled” in their progress. Life happens. People move away, have a shortage of funds, find no time, or any number of reasons to delay continuing their practice. After a while, the first Reiki attunement seems too far away to continue practicing.
  2. Lack of training – One of the most important aspects of learning Reiki is to actually find the time to practice it. Yet, some students lack proper training on energy techniques that promote confidence and competence.
  3. Lack of community support – Receiving a Reiki attunement is wonderful, but it’s just the beginning. Once the energy door is opened, it’s important to connect with like-minded people. We’re not alone, yet sometimes our awakening makes us feel separate, different, and maybe a little strange.
  4. Lack of developing sensitivity – In order to make Reiki easier to teach and use, early Reiki teachers developed a system of hand positions that offered good results. However, Usui initially intended for Reiki hand placements to be intuitive and encouraged the use of Byosen scanning as well as other intuitive techniques.

As a result, our Reiki classes take the best of all Reiki trainings. We focus on combining the Reiki experiences of Reiki 1 & 2 together into a full weekend class. There’s no waiting to continue your training.

Seamlessly, we weave together the energy concepts of Reiki fundamentals with exercises that promote confidence and competence. You’ll receive more than an attunement. You’ll have training on how to use Reiki immediately and integrate Reiki into daily practice. Reiki is a lifestyle. We’ll show you how it’s done, effortlessly.

Our Reiki community extends in many ways. We have a secret facebook group for Reiki students and continuing education experiences and workshops that help connect you to a greater grid – humanity.

We focus on the intuitive nature of Reiki. In fact, it’s a priority. We know that your awakening is happening, and you want to get started in the best possible way. We have tools to support you on your journey – The Healer’s Journey free webinar, Sensory Intuition Workshops, sound healing classes, and our own unique advanced training for Illuminated Healers.

Why do we teach Reiki 1 & 2 classes together? You’re ready for it. The world needs you. Step into your power as an intuitive healer. Check our calendar for the next available classes.
