Why do we wait until all else fails?

Which camp do you fall into:

(1) I have never tried any natural healing method;
(2) I tried natural healing after traditional medical methods failed; or
(3) I found natural healing methods before I felt ill or too stressed and it is now a part of my life.

Natural healing means any modality that typically does not include pharmaceuticals, surgery or invasive procedures (such as chemotherapy). It can include acupuncture, affirmations, crystal energy, energy healing, essential oils, exercise, herbal supplements, meditation, yoga, and more to help balance the body/mind/spirit. Natural healing js complimentary and works alongside traditional medicine.

So let’s back to the questions above. If you fall into Camp #3, good for you! When you embrace natural healing, you may prevent a serious ailment and may find that you are more balanced to handle the stress of everyday living. When you take a break from natural healing (due to travel, or over working) that is when you usually notice that you feel worse. That has certainly happened to me. That’s when you know that it is working.

If you fall into Camp #2, do you wish that you had found natural healing before something happened? I meet too many people and pet owners who wish they had found natural healing before it was too late. Too often the ailment has progressed too far to turn the situation around. Natural healing at that point simply provides comfort and relaxation.

What if you fall into Camp #1? What is stopping you from trying a natural method to keep you healthy and well? Here are a few reasons that I have heard over the years:

  • Insurance won’t pay for it. Most insurance does not cover natural healing right now, but the more people that are using it, the more likely that could change. When you invest upfront in your health, you spend less on medicine and doctor’s visits in the long run. And when you can replace some or all of your medicine cabinet with natural remedies, you may find that you save money too.
  • I want scientific proof that it works. There is a growing body of research supporting natural healing methods. But I often wonder who first decided that we should have proof that something works? Why would we allow a complete stranger to tell us that something works (that’s giving away our free will). Our ancestors did not need federally-funded National Institutes of Health studies over a 10 year period telling us that meditation reduces stress. So take a leap of faith and believe that something without requiring proof (and you will be pleasantly surprised then when it does work).
  • How do I know it will work? Well, it won’t work if you do not believe or even try it, right? And with traditional medicine, there is no guarantee that it will work either.

We live in a world filled with toxins, pollution, chemicals, technology, and depleting natural resources. We are surrounded by junk that our bodies were not built to defend against. It’s easy to enter the blame game and point fingers at the government, big industry and others for our failing health. But our health is solely in our own hands. Now instead, imagine that you begin to flood your body and mind with natural remedies: meditation to relax the mind; Reiki to relax the body; essential oils to penetrate the cells, awaken and soothe the senses; acupuncture to release energy blockages; yoga to gently energize the body, and so on. Now how does that feel?

We are all responsible for our own health. Limiting your options or intentionally putting on blinders to something “new” or “different” will only harm you.

Just one more question …. what are you waiting for?

Other People’s Energy: Closing and cleansing your energy field

Every person and animal has an energy field, or an aura, that radiates out from the body. This field can measure anywhere from a few feet to over 30 feet. As you move throughout your day, your field co-mingles with other people’s energy (OPE). This can result in many people feeling yucky at the end of the day, especially if you comingle with a negative or toxic energy field.

Having an open and clear energy field is important to help us genuinely connect with others and to receive and send energy (including intuitive messages). If you are an empath or high sensitive, you will be impacted by OPE more strongly than others. There are times that we need to compress and close our energy field to protect our energy field and maintain our sanity. For example, if you are in a crowded situation (such as an airplane, bus, mall, or at a party) and you start to feel agitated or edgy, it can be helpful to close your energy field to protect you from the unwanted barrage of OPE.

ValorSo how do you close your energy field? The simplest and least obvious technique is to cross your ankles while pressing your finger tips to each other. Do this for a few minutes while breathing deeply. You will notice the agitation melts away. I also like to place a drop of Young Living Valor essential oil on my wrists to provide a protective shield around my energy field. You can also wear or carry Black Tourmaline which transmutes negative energy. I use all three of these techniques when I am on an airplane and it works great.

Then after you are away from an energetically crowded area, these are some additional techniques to help clean your energy field of OPE so that you do not transfer it to others (especially your companion animals):

  • Take a palm-sized crystal (I particularly like Aurora Quartz, also known as Anandalite) or a Selenite wand and brush it about 3-4 inches off of your body. Use a sweeping motion to brush the energy away and down.
  • Place a drop of Young Living White Angelica essential oil in your palm, rub together, and then brush your energy field using the away and down method.
  • Before you enter your home, take your hands and brush your energy field using the away and down method. Remember to brush your backside, too. This helps you to avoid bringing unwanted energies to your family and especially to your pets who are ultra-sensitive to OPE.
  • Go outside and stand on the ground with your bare feet. This technique is called earthing and helps you to connect to the healing vibration of Mother Earth and reset your vibrational rate while clearing out unwanted energies.
  • If you have a crystal singing bowl or Tibetan singing bowl, spend a few minutes chiming the bowl to create a clearing resonance.

Aurora Quartz

Every day our energy field takes on the ick and ewwww of OPE. It only takes a few minutes to close and cleanse your energy field and maintain wellbeing and balance.

Be careful about the energy that you put out into the world because it will come back around to you. So make it great energy!

In order to get what you want, help others get what they want

Zig-You-Can-Have

I love this quote from Zig Ziglar because it exemplifies how energy works. What you send out is what you get back. What you give is what you get. Give and you shall receive. Right? You’ve probably already heard this, but are you really doing it?

So, I want you to think about you most want in this life? Now I want you to not focus on your wants and honestly answer what you are doing to help others?  This could be in the form of volunteering your time or money, it could be in the form of offering something that people pay for to improve their lives (such as a book, coaching, energy healing, a new healthy recipe, etc.), it could be what you share on your social media pages, and so on.

I have posed this question to a few dozen people over the past few weeks and received a consistent answer back: I am too busy to help others; I am barely able to help myself. If you fall into that camp, keep reading!!

Why is giving and helping others so important in a world that is so busy? Because when you shift your energy away from what can I get for myself to how can I serve and help others, your vibrational energy begins to slough off the negative energy of gimme gimme gimme and that endless to-do list, and allow in the flow of positive energy of I have something worthwhile to share with others.

It doesn’t matter whether what you offer is free or comes with a price. When you genuinely want to help others achieve what they want most in life (whether human or animal), you are sharing your gifts with the world and making the world a better place. And it is perfectly fine to charge for that because if you can make a living at doing what you love, everyone benefits!!!

Sound cliché? I challenge you to spend the next week with this mantra in the forefront of your mind: How can I serve? This instantly drops the energy of gimme gimme gimme and that pesky to-do list, and helps you embrace that when others succeed and achieve what they want, everyone benefits (including you).

Because I never ask anyone to do what I am unwilling to do, what I am doing to serve? Well, it can be exhausting because pretty much every waking minute of the day I am serving others and would do so whether I was paid or not (and much of what I do is not for financial gain). Here are a few of those activities:

  • I educate people on how to prevent and protect animals from abuse;
  • I volunteer to help care for abused, neglected and homeless cats (if I can help one cat purr with joy, my work is complete);
  • Everyday I read, educate and invest in myself so that I can share what I know to help people live their best life;
  • On weekends I am creating a domino effect of healing by teaching classes so that others can learn energy therapy techniques (click here to check out my upcoming class schedule);
  • I provide energy therapy sessions to help people and animals feel better;
  • I work nights and weekends creating a new signature coaching program to help people invest in themselves and step into the life that they were born to live; and
  • I write a weekly newsletter and blog (like this one) to share my love of essential oils, crystals and other energy modalities and showcase their amazing power to balance the physical/emotional/mental/spiritual body for improved wellness. I love it when someone reads what I’ve written and they sign up for a class, purchase a crystal, change how they relate to others, or invest in a kit of oils that inevitably leads to an energy shift.

As I create, develop and share, I do so with this ringing through my ears, how can I help others get what they want? It’s never about making money or having the most Facebook likes; it’s about having someone say thank you for sharing what you know … it changed my life!

So this week, please please please ponder how you are helping others and you will be graced with a boom-a-rang return of that energy. And please post me a comment here or on my Facebook page about how you are serving. We can all help each other serve and that will change the vibrational energy of the planet!
