It starts with connection

ShareTweet I hate statistics. Just numbers on a page. They don’t reflect the differences we all bring to our own healing. They don’t reflect our mind or our emotions. They don’t reflect our spiritual selves. They’re like a one dimensional picture transposed onto multi-dimensional beings. One size fits all. A good friend recounts in his […]

Changing my mind

ShareTweet Something got me to thinking about my past just recently. And specifically the plantar warts I suffered in my early teenage years. Horrible, painful, awful things that graced the soles of my left foot. Why not my right foot? Who’s to know. The treatment of the day was to anaesthetise the area and burn […]

The cancer fairy

ShareTweet I was talking to a friend last week. She’s just had the shocking diagnosis of DVT. Completely out of nowhere. She hasn’t been travelling, she doesn’t smoke. She’s not overweight. She’s not pregnant. No recent surgery. And while she does have a sedentary job, she also works out at the gym. And the thrombosis […]

Teaching an old dog new tricks

ShareTweet It was music to my ears today when he told me he’d cut back the analgesics. This lovely man I’m working with. Like most people he thought he’d be stuck with the pain forever. And the more I search the research, the more I realise that the same issues that set us up for […]

Day of Happiness

ShareTweet Back in the 1970’s the progressive little nation of Bhutan realised something profound. That the wellbeing of its people was more important as an indicator of development and prosperity than material wealth. How incredible is it to witness a nation recognising national happiness over national product? A nation that adopts a more holistic outlook […]

Finding the connection

ShareTweet I was talking to a woman the other day who told me she’d had two types of cancer in three years. But it was the next sentence that truly dumbfounded me. ‘There’s no connection between them’ she said. It was all I could do to bite my tongue. After all, she wasn’t asking for […]

Blind Faith

ShareTweet I see it daily. In the hospitals. In the media. All around me. People struggling through chemo. Enduring side-effects they don’t necessarily have to experience. Accepting a lesser quality of life, because their thinking doesn’t allow them to see another option. Seemingly blind to the help available. People often ask me to help a […]

Reading the signs

ShareTweet These days, when it whispers, I listen. The signs have always been there. I just didn’t know how to read them. My body’s way of communicating to me if it’s stressed or if it’s healing. And while this may sound a little ‘out there’, would it surprise you to know it’s as simple as […]
