My week training in Geomancy and Earth Dowsing …….

July 2018 was the month I attended the most amazing week training in Geomancy and Earth Dowsing in order to understand earth energies and resolve issues in the environment. I appreciated first-hand how good clean harmonious energies can make the difference between doing and feeling poorly and blooming. It can affect your health, relationships and finances.

My husband and I were captivated by the enthusiasm, professional and personal transformation of our good friend and great energy worker Andre Sutherland, who attended the same course in 2017, and we decided it was something to be experience personally.

I had to wait a whole year, counting the months, the weeks and finally days that were separating me from this chapter to begin. Something inside was telling me it was going to be anything never experienced before and the waiting was full of excitement, frustration, joy and high expectations; event though I had no idea what was waiting for  me at the Ashdown Forest, East Sussex.

Adding to that, in my Kinesiology practice between 90 to 95% of my clients seem to be affected by Geopathic stress, EMF and/or Technostress and understanding better the issues and how to help them became almost imperative. To find out more about Geopathic stress and EMF please read  the blogs on my webpage “Geopathic stress – the link between Earth energy and our well-beinghttps://equilibriumvitae.net/contributor-of-the-month/april/ (by Andre Sutherland) and “Electromagnetic-frequencies-the-invisible-danger-to-our-health-and-wellbeing” https://equilibriumvitae.net/2018/01/30/electromagnetic-frequencies-the-invisible-danger-to-our-health-and-wellbeing/.

The whole week was spent sharing daily activities with a group of international students from the UK, Malesia, US and Switzerland and Jewels and Richards, our extremely knowledgeable and fun teachers, amidst the magic of Beech Hill Stone Circle.

We learned the grounding  theory and practice of dowsing the earth’s subtle energies such as ley lines, geopathic stress “black” or “sha” streams; drawing on the principles of Feng Shui, one of the most complete Geomantic systems still practiced and how to enhance the of quality of Qi (energy).

We discussed in more details Geophatic, EMF and Technostress and learned techniques to help reducing and neutralising these types of stresses such as avoidance, shield and curing.

We learned how to find Earth’s acupunctures points and geomantic rituals helping to heal, transform and manifest; how to design sacred spaces, cut wands, read auras, making incense and so much more.

We also visited different sites such as a 2,550 years old Yew tree, lakes and caves and a local village to read the Qi. We cleansed a couple’s property at the start of new chapter in their lives and dowsed another one for potential predecessor energies imprints as well as other type of energies that could have affected their new home.

The weather was merciful and permitted us to spend a lot of time outdoors, showering under the sky, enjoying live folk music by Jez Hellard & The Djukella Orchestra https://jezhellardthedjukellaorchestra.bandcamp.com/  around the campfire while watching the stars. We sat under the majestic trees on the fields cutting wands and re-energising in the stone circles while our nutritional needs were taken care of by Phil and Kay with delicious vegan recipes https://therawbuilder.co.uk/

There was a lot of sharing, laughing and crying around the fires under the ever present watchful eye of Nooo the Pomchi, the loving soul of Laika the German shepherd and Cricket the cat.

My heart fills with joy and gratitude every time I relive these memories in my mind. During these 7 days I was able to finally connect the dots of my life journey so far. It gave me more tools to help my clients with their health and I would highly recommend this intensive course to anyone with an inquisitive mind, anyone who feels an affinity to nature and those seeking different type of answers.

My deep gratitude goes to everyone that made this special week possible: my fellow students, Jewels and Richard, Phil and Kay, Russ, the Deers visiting us at night and all the ever present Spirits of Place.

I will never forget this experience, for it was transformational.

Emotion, the Body and Wellbeing

emotional health

 

I have spoken before about the mind and body link: we are a spirit, which is separated from the body. The spirit communicates with the mind. The mind communicates with the physical brain. The brain communicates with the body. So it is clear that everything is connected and can impact each element of us, particularly our physical, mental and spiritual health.

It is now widely acknowledged that a large percentage of our illnesses are stress-related – stress has been implicated as a major factor for heart conditions, depression and rheumatoid arthritis and more. Of course it is important to know and address what causes the stress in our lives. You can see my blog post all about stress here

Much of the stress in our lives is actually as a result of unresolved emotional issues. Even if we are not aware of these unresolved emotions; they release stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline that can have a detrimental affect on our body.

Emotions can and do get trapped in the cells of our body – they can take many years to reveal.

We experience emotions with every activity we undertake. It can be the response to a particular situation such as fear if we are involved in an accident or extreme joy for an achievement. Sometimes, seemingly insignificant incidents may have caused a subconscious response that we might not even aware of.

Did you know that both conscious and subconscious memories could be linked the emotional response to events in our life? At time we are aware of what trigger an emotion for example, a song on the radio that we associate with a particular event. Other times a sudden sense of depression is triggered, for which there is no clear conscious trigger – usually because there is in-fact a subconscious trigger linked to a past event.

Our bodies are not machines that can just keep on going through long periods of stresses without any affect. It is often not until we stop that the body can then be given the space and time to show its imbalance through symptoms, which we need to listen to.

I always say “the body has the answer” and when I treat a client, I look at all aspects of a person – including the emotional aspects. When I am able to identify emotional blockages often the client knows what emotional stressor is affecting him/her, particularly it a present situation that their body is responding to. Other times are past emotions or traumas or at time they may be unsure what it could be. Lately, I found myself helping client clearing emotions that are present from when they were carried in the womb! Or there have been occasions where we have found it is an emotion that it has carried down through generations in the bloodline.

I have even found that the person is carrying emotions that are not actually their own but maybe of a partner, a parent and/or a siblings.

It is very difficult to determine the full impact of unresolved emotions. There is so much to discover. But when they are identified balance can be regained.

For me, it is a privilege to help my clients understand how much a particular emotion has impacted them, whether consciously or subconsciously, and it is highly rewarding for them experiencing the feeling after the emotions have been addressed and taken to conscious mind and dealt with.

If you believe you may have unresolved emotions impacting your wellbeing or if you are suffering with physical symptoms and are unable to gain relief please do get in touch to find out how Kinesiology can help you.

A reflection on my journey through cancer

DSC_1289

10 years ago today, the 6th June 2008 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and my life changed forever.

Of that day, I remember that emotionless radiologist delivering the news and my numbness, the inability of thinking straight and me looking into the void until mum brought me back to reality; we needed to act swiftly. Within 2 weeks I had already undergone surgery, was set on a course of 26 radiotherapy sessions and 5 years of HTR.

The initial shock was quickly put aside and an emergency mode in place. Life had already taught me that crying in these circumstances is not productive and as an antidote I started planning my next stage in life which included returning to London and accepting an offer to open a Law firm office in the City. The enthusiasm of returning home helped me overcome the first few months and allowed me not to think too much about the pain and the fears, which were conveniently pushed deep in a remote part of my mind. Back home, it took quite a few months for reality to hit.

Although, the oncologist warned me about the medication’s side effects, I was not prepared for the full impact and my health started deteriorating rapidly. Not only that, having to come to terms with the fact I was facing a life threating disease, those repressed emotions started to manifest in the form of depression, lack of energies and a constant debilitating back pain. My quality and social life were almost not existent and for the next couple of years all my energies were preserved to go work.

It was then, that a friend introduced me to the person, who became my healer, mentor and trusted friend. By only entering his therapy room I knew something had shifted, for the first time in years I felt at peace and I had found someone who understood what I was trying to say; my journey through quantum healing, kinesiology and craniosacral therapy had started.

Within 6 months my back was realigned and pain-free. Cleansing my system via nutrition and the introduction of food supplements helped to keep the medication’s side effects at bay. Yet, the real turning point was when I started to fully realise the impact that traumas can have on our health; one day I suddenly understood why I developed cancer. The whole impact of early traumas, which had never been addressed, came back with vengeance and my body was not able to cope any longer.

For the past 7 years I have worked hard on my physical and mental health. Nutritional support has been added to my diet, more physical activity, meditation and regular healing sessions have worked wonders; even though the path has not been always easy and pain-free.

My self-esteem has increased, my anger has disappeared, and my energy level is unrecognisable. Still at times, like today, memories, pain, fears are haunting me but I know, it is all part of that journey with no return.

Becoming a Kinesiologist was the result of this journey; it is my profession and my passion because I now know there is another way.

The Importance of Energy Free Flowing in our Meridian

Crop circle

As a Kinesiologist I look at all aspects of a person – physical, emotional, nutritional and spiritual, to identify imbalances in the body. This means I work extensively with meridians and energies.

The meridian system, also known as the acupuncture system, has its basis in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is based on a set of interventions designed to restore balance to human beings. What is referred to as illness by Western medicine is considered to be a matter of disharmony or imbalance in TCM.

People come to me for a variety of reasons – with chronic pain, issues like IBS or even emotional illness, but people also come to see me without adverse symptoms. This is to keep their body in balance and free of energy blockages in order to prevent a physical manifestation of the blockage.

We have 12 meridians that are named according to their corresponding organs (stomach, spleen, heart, small intestine, bladder, kidneys, triple warmer, lung, large intestine, bladder, liver and gall bladder) and two additional meridians known as governing vessel and central vessel. If you are experiencing some digestive problems it is likely your stomach meridian has an energy blockage!

So what are meridians?

Meridians carry energy throughout the body much in the same way arteries carry blood. Energy is our life force. Energies flow through these meridians accessing all parts of the body and are responsible for all the body’s major organ systems.

If the energy flowing through is imbalanced in any way, the system it fuels is jeopardized and this may result in disease. This is why it is so important to remove any blockages and make sure that the energies flow freely in our body.

We can think of the meridian system as a giant web, linking different parts of our body together.

The meridians main functions:

– to connect the internal organs with the exterior of the body

– connect the person to the environment and the universe

– to harmonize the yin and yang principles within the body’s organs and Five Elements;

– to distribute qi (pronounced chee) within the body

You may have heard of yin, yang and qi, but perhaps you don’t understand that they are.

One of the objectives of Traditional Chinese Medicine is to keep yin and yang in harmonious balance within a person.

Yin: Often symbolized by water or earth, the yin is associated with femininity, darkness, passivity, receptiveness and the night; while Yang: Often symbolized by fire or air, the yang is associated with masculinity, light, activeness and the day. Both forces are equally necessary in nature and in human well-being, and neither force can exist without the other.

Taoist teachers also believed that there is a third force, primordial energy or qi (also spelled chi or ki). The interplay between yin, yang, and qi gave rise to the Five Elements of water, metal, earth, wood, and fire. These entities are all reflected in the structure and functioning of the human body.

The energy flow in our 12 meridians follows a specific time schedule with qi being more prevalent in different meridians at different times of the day. For example, the active time for the Liver Meridian is 1am – 3am so if you are waking up at this time every morning it is your liver telling you that it needs looking at!

This could be on a physical level and you may be need to be detoxing or it could even be on an emotional level showing that you may need to deal with anger in your life – as one of emotions associated with the Liver Meridian emotion is anger.

One important difference between the development of medicine in China and in the West a doctor might be interested in body weight, height and symptoms, the Chinese medicine practitioner looks at a patient holistically. Treatment will work to correct imbalances and disharmonies in the flow of qi.

Our bodies communicate with us and guide us to the root of the problem, but too often we don’t know how to listen or don’t understand what they are saying. My advice is that your body has the answer.

Cellular Memory and Emotions

Cellular Memory and Emotions

Our DNA is a microchip that not only carries all your biological information; it also carries your psychological information. Emotions are imprinted in our cellular memory – thoughts, traumas, accidents and illnesses they are all recorded in out DNA.

The Cellular Memory is a bio-computer that influences our relationship with everything. It affects the way we perform routine tasks, how we react to stressors and how we handle emotional challenges in our day to day lives. Stored within our Cellular Memory are all conscious and unconscious patterns of behaviours. Sometimes we experience physical issues as old cellular memories surfacing. It is their way of ‘calling’ to be cleared.

According to Candace Pert, former Chief of the Section of Brain Biochemistry of the Clinical Neuroscience Branch at the National Institute of Mental Health https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candace_Pert, “repressing emotions can only be causative of disease. Failure to find effective ways to express negative emotions causes you to ‘stew in your own juices.’”

No longer can we ignore the fact the emotional toxicity is playing a major role in our wellbeing. A state of health and happiness is our birth right. In order to regain and maintain it, it is important to be in balance, emotionally as well physically.

As a Systematic Kinesiologist, I am trained to help release stressful emotions, traumas, negative thought patterns and behaviours that are causing us to behave in ways that are holding us back from living in full brightness. Negative energy is trapped in our Cellular Memory and we must aim to remove and release it if we are to move forward and live full, healthy, energised, peaceful, happy lives.
