Taming the Sugar Monster

The Sugar monster

I had a client who had a sugar addiction, and found it impossible to resist sweets.   People were regularly bringing in baked goods and candy to work.  And it wasn’t usual for him to eat an entire serving tray of cookies!

He often said his sugar addiction was so bad that it was even easier to give up alcohol!   He had been eating this way for his entire life, and so had others in his family of origin! (more…)

The Causes of Autoimmune Disease

The Causes of Autoimmune Disease

 My Fountain of Youth:  Interrupted

I spent the week of Christmas of 2018 doubled over in pain, with horrible stomach cramps and diarrhea. The mold I had inadvertently ingested along with my tomatoes was wreaking havoc on my digestive system.  This was not how I wanted to spend the holiday!    Then when I did recover,  the problems would resurface whenever I ate tomatoes.  Had a developed an allergy or intolerance to tomatoes?

After that bout of mold toxicity, my body seemed to continue to decline from there.   It began with the reoccurring illnesses. I used to claim to only rarely get sick.   But now it seemed like every week, I was fighting yet another infection!   Why I wondered,  was I all of a sudden so vulnerable to getting sick?

The Power of Addressing the Metaphysical Causes

The Power of Addressing the Metaphysical Causes

My new client came to me with a list of concerns he wanted to address. As I customarily do, I ask if he’d like to me to ask his subconscious where to start. He agreed, and when I did, I got that we needed to address pain, which was not on his list! When I asked him about it, he said, oh yes, with my MS (multiple sclerosis), I have regular back, neck and shoulder pain.  His lower back pain could be so bad that sometimes he couldn’t get out of bed for over 10 minutes! He rated the pain as a 8.5/10! When I asked him when he hadn’t put it on his list, he said, that it has become such a normal part of his life, that he had just accepted it as a part of who he had become!

He agreed to let me proceed, and as I often find with clients with autoimmune conditions, there was a metaphysical question underlying the pain that needed to be addressed.

Why We Need to Aim for an Awe-Filled Life!

Why We Need to Aim for an Awe-Filled Life!

A few weeks ago, the gardener for a large private estate in The Highlands in North Seattle invited me for a tour.  I jumped at the opportunity!

My Mini Vacation

As we entered the gated community of The Highlands, it felt like we had completely left the city behind. The neighborhood is encased in Redwoods!   As we approached the Gardens, my gardener friend said, “and this is where I start whistling”!   It wasn’t long before I could see why! (more…)

The Power of Protect Stones

Three months ago, I was introduced to the power of gemstones through shungite.   The vendor next to my table at a wellness fair, Cosmic Reality was selling shungite, and I found myself drawn to the their table.

The Power of Shungite

They told me that they were bee-keepers and that they had lost all their colonies.  In a desperate attempt to find a solution to bring back the bees, they discovered (more…)

Why You Must Protect Yourself from Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMFs)

I once had a client who had a bump in her mouth that wouldn’t go away. The lump would shrink with the release work I did. But it would keep coming back.

She was living in Taiwan at the time.

Inside her apartment were big-screen TVs that were wired to computers. The apartment was filled with EMFs (Electromagnetic Fields) throughout the building, and I got that the EMFs were interfering with her ability to heal.

How to Get Younger With Age

My feline fur baby Tuk Tuk just turned 15.  One and a half years ago, she developed horrible leg cramps that seemed to strike randomly.   She’d scream with fear, and then struggle to walk.   I realized that by massaging her back legs, I could get the blood flowing again, and she’d be back on her feet as if nothing had happened.  I was very concerned.

Debunking the Myth that there is No Science Behind Energy Medicine

Debunking the Myth that there is No Science Behind Energy Medicine

I can’t tell you how many times I have heard that there is no science behind energy medicine.   There has been tons of research coming from David Feinstein, Ph.D.  Dawson Church, Ph.D., Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dean Radin, Ph.D., and many others, demonstrating the power of energy medicine.   But despite this, there are still many who seem glued to the idea that energy medicine is not evidence based.

One of the leading contributors to this myth is Wikipedia.  Many of its arguments used to claim there is no science to support energy medicine come from the lab of one researcher, Edzard Ernst, Ph.D.  (more…)

How to Overcome Abandonment Issues

Do you know someone who has abandonment issues?

My client (let’s call her Anne to protect her identity) came to me struggling with backaches, headaches and vision problems that came with stress, exhaustion and overwhelm.

She had been struggling with these issues for years. But they were getting worse when she returned back to work after taking a leave of absence.

With all the pain and fatigue, she was finding it a real challenge to manage all her responsibilities as a mom and a new business owner.

One Simple Experiment to Measure Positive and Negative Energy

One Simple Experiment to Measure Positive and Negative Energy

Most people intuitively know that the energy we project does matter, but according to Joachim Krueger Ph.D. in Psychology today, there is no way to measure the difference between positive and negative energy.

I beg to differ.  I interviewed by Joshua Blatman for his Survivors2Thrivers podcast.   Watch this little demonstration of what happens to coat hangers depending on the energy Joshua projects. Then feel free to try the experiment with wire coat hangers at home.

The experiment:
