Coping with Physical Pain: A Pathway to Healing Yourself

1. September, 2016Blog Posts, Energy HealingNo comments

coping with physical painPain, whether it lasts a day or recurs indefinitely, is a friend. Of course, when we are in pain it can be hard to remember that. Nor am I a masochist; I’ve taken my share of Advil for

coping with physical pain. But, pain, physical and emotional, is guaranteed and both are a boon to self-awareness if we take advantage of them. The more we embrace life the richer it becomes even when it hurts. Read more

Distinguishing Between a Sense of Entitlement Complex and Gratitude

18. August, 2016Blog Posts, Spiritual HealingNo comments

sense of entitlement complexA friend of mine is a psychologist and counselor for college students at a prestigious university. She finds the job challenging because “they have such a strong sense of entitlement.” These young people feel they are inherently deserving of special treatment. They have high expectations for their living conditions, dining, and spending money. Above all, they expect their emotional upsets and distress to be honored giving them a

sense of entitlement complex. Read more

Your Feelings: The Relationship Between Health and Happiness

1. August, 2016Blog Posts, Energy HealingNo comments

Relationship Between Health and HappinessThe Human Energy Field includes the body, mind, and emotions. It reflects our personalities, the ways we learned to deal with disappointments and success. It holds the aspects where our energy flows full and clean and it holds the places where energy got stuck and still gets stuck in our bodies. The Human Energy field is the basis of understanding our own relationship between health and happiness.

That is what we seek: happiness and health. We want to be contented, comfortable, and healthy. We want to experience joy. How can we create greater happiness and health for ourselves and those we love in spite of unhappy, sad, and painful experiences? The answer is real self-care. But what is it to really care for yourself?

Developing Good Character Traits: Honesty & Truth

8. July, 2016Blog Posts, Spiritual HealingNo comments

“If you are honest only because you should be honest then your honesty is corrupt.”

– Source Unknown

developing good character traitsAs a child I thought, and was taught, that honesty is a simple matter. You tell the truth and it is a sin to lie. In life I discovered that honesty is neither simple or easy. I could write dozens of stories on my formative encounters with truthfulness and lying and include a few here on developing good character traits.

Personal Character Development

My commitment to telling the truth began because I lied a couple of times as a child and those events remained significant in my memory. One of the first times my parents left my older sister and I alone (we might have been 5 and 6), the two of us got into an argument. She pulled out the yardstick and said she was going to spank me. I grabbed the other end and we each tugged and pulled. The flimsy yardstick broke in two. Later, when my mother found the yardstick in pieces she confronted us. We held a united front, both of us insisting we had no idea how the yardstick got broken.

Understanding Human Relationships: Behavior & Experience

1. June, 2016Blog Posts, Spiritual HealingNo comments

understanding human relationshipsIn life, we have our internal experience, our behavior, and the other person’s behavior. That’s all. Out of these three, we want to form rewarding relationships, relationships that make us feel good and happy. The gap lies in the missing element: the other person’s experience. We can’t know the other person’s experience, only our own when

understanding human relationships. When we get upset it is a giveaway that we don’t even know the depth of our own experience either. Read more

Letting Go Of Resentment To Embrace Your Peaceful Spirit

20. August, 2015Blog Posts, Energy HealingNo comments

letting-go-of-resentmentResentment is familiar to most of us yet it is rarely discussed. It arises when we have given something of ourselves emotionally or materially and the giving feels like too much. Yet, we don’t like to admit feeling resentful. It seems selfish. I have something (time, energy, money) and someone else is in need. I want to help. I want to do the right thing. What does it say about me when I feel resentful? Even when we get angry and blow up, we don’t like to admit to this emotion.

Isn’t this the way with all of us? We want to be kind and generous. We want to ‘take the high road’. Sometimes it works out. Sometimes we are left wondering about the right or wrong of an action. And sometimes we believe we did the right thing but resent the consequences of our choice.

Gain The Upper Hand On Self Doubt and Limiting Beliefs

14. July, 2015Anxiety, Blog Posts, Energy HealingNo comments

self doubtI was 3 when I attended the birthday party of a little girl who was deaf. I tried talking to her but she didn’t notice or respond. I complained to my mother that she wasn’t a very nice girl and my mother explained the girl couldn’t hear. I didn’t believe it. I didn’t believe she couldn’t hear. After all, she had ears. I was convinced she was lying and continued trying to engage her verbally.

How to Overcome Self DoubtAnother year later I recall patiently explaining to my 2 year old sister that her doll was not a Toni Doll (the popular doll at the time) like mine, hers was just a rubber doll. When she finally got the message she screamed inconsolably. My mother was furious. When I tried to soothe my sister, my mother said, “It’s too late. You can’t fix it now.”

These seemingly minor events were significant for me. At the least they contributed to the idea I formed of myself. “I’m no good with people.” The thought and the vocabulary indicate how young I was to reach such a generalized conclusion.

Family Constellations: Healing Generational Wounds

16. June, 2015Blog Posts, RelationshipsNo comments

The potency of an act refers to its power to reproduce itself through the generations… This is the spiritual analogue to the perpetuation of gene characteristics.

Kabbalah and Consciousness

Allen Afterman

family constellationsWe like to think of ourselves as truly individual, sole proprietors of who we are. While we recognize that our parents and upbringing have had an effect on us, we generally see our true self as independent of our background.

Another perspective suggests we are more than “just” ourselves. We are members of a greater soul, the soul of our families. This soul is a living entity with its own drive for survival and wholeness much as individuals are driven for themselves. This family soul is focused on the group. It isn’t concerned about the needs or desires of individual members except to the extent that they serve the betterment of the family.

Alternative Medicine: Energy Healing for Bones

21. May, 2015Blog Posts, Energy HealingNo comments

alternative medicineIt is uncommon but not rare that bone fractures do not heal. There can be many causes for this and there are conventional interventions in Western medicine. Additionally, Oriental medicine can be effective to encourage broken bones to heal.

Energy healing is an alternative practice that may also support healing bone fractures. There is not, however, much scientific research to provide evidence one way or the other.

Dr. Gloria Gronowicz, a specialist in bone cells conducted research on the effects of energy healing on bone cell growth at the University of Connecticut. Specifically, trained Therapeutic Touch practitioners were able to stimulate the growth of bone and tendon cells in lab dishes. Read more

Mindfulness

Meditation: Sandra Egli
Music: Torey Ronhovde

The wisdom of a thousand generations guides you today. Only listen. Without a sound their voices reverberate in your cells. Settle within and choose your path.

All of us come from strength, fortitude, perseverance. No matter how difficult their lives, our ancestors made it through and passed on life for the next generation. Over and over, until it came to you. The intelligence that guided them has also come to you.


To Thine own Self be true.

If I could present you with a single blessing, it would be the gift of Mindfulness. Awareness of yourself: body, emotions, and self-talk, all the time. Our immediate experience is the ultimate exploration that only grows richer with time. What we do or don't do, and the roots of our behavior, are accessible with the simple practice of noticing immediate experience. It is this practice that makes it possible to know and be true to ourselves.
