In a healing session, it is quite common to be advised and encouraged to “relax and let go” of energy that you might unnecessarily be holding onto either because you believe you have to, due to responsibilities, expectations and the like, or that you might be holding in order to control your path. However, regardless of the reason, relinquishing

Recently, I have been looking more closely at the energy of lies and how that can negatively affect one’s health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, we are subjected to lies in pretty much every arena of our life and society be it political, religious, commercial, industrial, social or economic. As with anything in life, there are many variations within the


Pain and snowflakes

Just as no two snowflakes are alike, the same can be said for pain – no two experiences of pain are alike and the possible degrees and variations of pain experiences are infinite.

Stress has rapidly become an expected part of life, a necessary evil with which we all have to contend in our fast-paced society and lifestyle.

Today, I held a workshop entitled “Addressing Pain” for a


The potential for harm in prayer

Most people who practice prayer, whether it be daily, weekly or once in a while, believe it to be a positive force – something that is beneficial, helpful, healing – and indeed there is much to be said for the power of this spiritual support system. However, there are times when prayer can in fact


Is illness always bad?

I’m guessing that your first response to coming down with a cold, flu or other illness is one of frustration, resistance, anger or perhaps even some fear. The subject of illness will generally inspire moans, groans and an overall negativity. Illness is considered bad. Illness means something is wrong. But is that really true, why


How does fear control you?

Date: Posted on: Categories Healing, SpiritualityTags , , , ,

What exactly is fear?  In physical terms, fear is a powerful mechanism designed to keep us alive or ensure our survival.  Without the ability to sense danger or a potentially perilous situation, we might unknowingly put ourselves in harms way and suffer the consequences.   The part of the brain responsible for processing these perceptions is called
