The three ring circus of thoughts in our mind can stir up a flurry of emotion that disrupts the nervous system, creates inflammation and show's up as a multitude of symptoms in the body. Fortunately there's hope! What we find with BodyTalk is that if we address the underlying factors beneath the anxiety the laundry list of health issues starts to clear up with ease.
When we over grip we suffer. The less we cling the more present we become to the totality of ourselves and our experience. With practice we can live in a greater embodied recognition of our innate wholeness. Present moment awareness trains our brain to experience right and left brain function as mutually inclusive, not exclusive. It's a matter of awareness. Living in full presence heals the divide to create an interior awareness that is spacious enough to contain and hold the entire paradox. Here lies the field of possibility where we can engage our potential.
Your body’s immune system is designed to protect you from disease and infection. With autoimmune disease your immune system literally attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake. With over 80 types of autoimmune disease, some having similar symptoms, its difficult to get an accurate diagnosis. Even with a spot on diagnosis autoimmune disease can still elude many treatments. Instead of chasing symptoms BodyTalk efficiently unearths and addresses the unique causative factors resting beneath the surface of inflammation and autoimmune disease, all without the need for a diagnosis!
Essential oils are concentrated extracts from the seeds, bark, stems, leaves, roots and flowers of plants. The therapeutic benefits are many and unique for each type of oil.
I’ve been using Essential Oils to support my own health for over a decade. Just over a year ago I decided to incorporate Essential Oils into my BodyTalk and Reiki practice. Clients absolutely love how the oils help them integrate the benefits of their sessions and take the healing deeper.
What I love most about BodyTalk is it’s life affirming approach to health and life. So often our attempt to fight disease and suppress symptoms is rooted in a place of fear and confusion. BodyTalk restores self-awareness and wholeness so a new organizational intelligence may emerge. This way health care is a dynamic exploration to help us express our potential and heal.
Grief is perhaps the least understood and most under supported emotion in our culture. As we move through loss (death of a loved one, job change, losing our youth, loss of a dream) there can be a flurry of conflicted emotion or we can feel shut down and contracted or both. We often feel confused, alone, misunderstood, or bewildered in our loss.
In Sanskrit, Sandhya means twilight - the junction between light and dark. This transition in time can be experienced as a sacred juncture.
Other sacred junctures include the pause between the in-breath and out-breath and the balance point of the recent equinox - intersections that offer us entry into the rhythm of nature.
Samskaras (Sanskrit – संस्कार) – are impressions that leave imprints or grooves on the subconscious mind from past experience. They are dynamic forces that color our experience of ourselves and affect our state of mind and our response to life itself.
Our conditionings, in the form of thoughts, emotions and behaviors become stronger through repetition. It’s easy for us to fall into the same groove time and time again and feel stuck. Such habits are part of the human condition and I propose can also lay the foundation for opening us to our greatest destiny.
Gratitude gives life meaning and yet it need not be dependent on the outside world.
“Gratitude improves emotional and physical health, and it can strengthen relationships and communities. Without gratitude, life can be lonely, depressing and impoverished. Gratitude enriches human life. It elevates, energizes, inspires and transforms. People are moved, opened and humbled through expressions of gratitude.” – Dr. Robert Emmons, University of California Professor.
