About Second Nature Healing

The story of how Second Nature Healing began, as told by Rosemary:

Second Nature Healing evolved out of a love of nature and a deep connection to animals. It was actually because of my dog, Ginger, that the first edition of a website became a reality, appearing as “Rosemary’s Solutions” in 2006. This initial website chronicled Ginger’s story as it was written during her health crisis (hemangiosarcoma), and her subsequent miraculous healing and recovery – a story so significant and unusual that it had to be told (her story also became the basis of my first book, Heal Together).

Those early days when Ginger stayed close by my side, I could hardly believe what I witnessed, even though I was intimately involved with every aspect of Ginger’s presence. As I continued a protocol I developed intuitively, with some gratefully received help from a dear friend (who introduced me to zeolite), I felt I was on a new path, catapulted into a realm of natural healing that required more of me than I thought it was possible to give. My skills as teacher combined effortlessly with a desire to incorporate natural healing modalities. However, marketing myself was not on my radar. My connection with the world of helping people I never met came from a love of animals.

Currently, I employ no one. I might be the ultimate DIY-er . . . which brings me to a foundation philosophy that motivates me every day. We are perfect and whole spiritual beings. We are responsible for our own thoughts, our own happiness, our own health, prosperity, relationships, and BE-ing. The body knows how to heal, and does so with very little effort. The body – the perfect Do-it-Yourself state of being – is an extension of God’s heart. Our acceptance of wholeness gives us the idea that healing is Second Nature. However, we’re also given choices, knowledge, tools and information to help us manifest our greatest outcome. We ignore these pieces of existence, not at our peril, but as a part of our journey.

Over the years I’ve relied heavily on my intuition, trusting my instincts as well as my training as a scientist and teacher. As my awareness grew, so did my practice. At Second Nature Healing I now utilize energy healing techniques such as Reiki and Vibrational Sound therapy. I also have added several products to my personal protocol over the years that I believe support aspects of healing that might otherwise take longer. It’s so much easier to allow the body to heal if toxins have been removed, for example. Detoxification has become one of my high priority tools. I hope it becomes one of yours, too.

As I continue to grow, so has Second Nature Healing and the reach we have world-wide to connect people to real solutions beyond the narrow field of conventional medical practices (cut, burn, drug, and basically treat the symptoms rather than the whole). There are always options, and I hope I’m helping to provide a greater awareness for people who are searching for answers.

I’m more than delighted that working with my daughter, Michelle Hawk, has also evolved into a special advanced Shamanic Reiki program called Illumination Reiki. I actually secured that domain many years ago, before I understood why, or what it would become. It’s still growing – as am I. I invite you to connect with me. Drop me an email if you feel called to do so, or join me weekly on The Healer’s Journey free webinar. Maybe our journeys will intersect. I hope so.

Many blessings,

Rosemary Levesque

The Simplicity of Wellness

Care and natural remedies in the healing process.Simplicity and wellness – These are words that, for some people, may not be even comfortable to express in the same breath. Yet, time after time in my Reiki practice I hear the aches and pains, and worries and distress described to me as targets for elimination. The elbows, knees and shoulders scream for attention. The weak immune system wreaks havoc on the body. The annoying, definitive diagnoses from doctors demand attention that is often given in the form of drugs. So what can we say about wellness and simplicity? The answer might surprise you.

The Biology of Wellness

As a biologist, I used to look at wellness as a result of genetics, diet, and luck. Really! The genes we have are written as code – scientists call DNA the code of life. Whatever is written must be true, and the code reveals traits that are expressed as “tall”, “skin tone”, and even “foot shape”. Beyond the obvious physical expression of genes, the DNA code also operates behind-the-scene encoding the enzymes for chemical reactions in the body, hormones to regulate body functions, proteins for cell communication and even genes that we hope we never experience – the ones for cancer and other debilitating diseases.

However, independent research among scientists now shows us that the nucleus of the cell (the part that contains the genes and DNA) is more a function of reproduction than it is for definitive proof of traits, defects and disease. In his book, the Biology of Belief, Dr. Bruce Lipton shows us that it is, in fact, the cell membrane that functions more as the “brain” of the cell. How the body feels, both physically and emotionally, can not only be read by our brain, but can be manipulated by our thoughts.

Your Thoughts and Wellness

The medical community ignores this information, much to our detriment. Research continues to look for and formulate the newest and best drug to target the bad and hope for the best. However, if wellness has more to do with mind-over-matter, as Dr. Lipton suggests, then we have much more control over our wellbeing than we may be led to believe.

The Source of Wellness

We are, of course, very complex beings. However, that does not mean that being well is complex. The opposite is true! It is easier to align ourselves with the positive thoughts and feelings of wellbeing once we learn the basics. For some people, there might be a longer journey of learning, undoing the negativity, trauma, and emotional conflict of the past. The journey may begin by eliminating not only the toxic thought patterns but also the toxins themselves. In spite of all the good intentions, people may not recognize what is toxic or “bad” in their lives without first aligning to what is “good”.

Alignment to what is “good” may be as simple as noticing what you agree with.

Recently, I was invited to enjoy an article by Tony Burroughs, author of The Law of Agreement: Discover the True Power of Intention. He says that, by nodding our heads and even compassionately listening, we subtly agree with the negative comments in conversation before us. Do you ever find yourself in this situation? To what are you agreeing? Catch your reaction the next time someone complains of their sore back or knees. Do you chime in with your own aches and pains? Notice when you agree that “life is hard” or chores are a “challenge”. In this Law of Agreement, you actually give power to the negative statements and emotions. Instead, it is possible to point out the good, be the perpetual optimist, and shift your words to positive statements. When you agree with something negative or “bad”, you come into alignment with it. Instead, come into alignment with “good”.

“When you give your agreement to that which is good, you just make more of it.” Tony Burroughs

In our healing center, we focus on the simplicity of wellness. State your intentions for healing always in the positive, for the greatest and highest good.  Make moving forward on a path of wellness feel second nature. Getting started is easy.
