Cleaning as Healing?

We clean and purify our minds of limiting beliefs and thoughts. We clean our emotional life by presenting our anger, fear and sadness to trusted friends, lovers and therapists to help us experience more joy and peace.

Distance Healing and Plants

How can we “observe” things that are not physical? Rudolf Steiner (and many others) talked about the “4 Levels” of being: Spiritual, Astral, Etheric and Physical.

Animals and Energy Medicine

Do animals respond to energy medicine? Some of you may remember that a few years ago, I healed a hamster of a huge tumor on her head. Hamsters normally live about 2 years, so just shy of 2 years old, she did pass. That little creature was a huge teacher for me! When she developed […]

There are two attitudes we often have when faced with a health condition.  One that says, “It’s all too hard, too tough, way to complicated, way to intricate, need to get tighter and tighter on the controls and it still won’t work!”  The other says, “It doesn’t matter!  Relax and let love take care of […]

Vibrational Healing (aka Sound Healing, Harmonic Medicine) for the deep, integrated healing you need

Are you are therapist or a patient who likes the idea of “energy medicine”, but you have some real physical problems that seem to require something “stronger”? Consider Sound Healing.

Sickness and Sin

Are spiritually advanced people healthy? There is a lot of prejudice around sickness that I think keeps us from receiving the healing that comes with sickness. As we try to take responsibility for our health, thinking that we somehow unconsciously co-created our uncomfortable situation can either hurt or help. It hurts if we feel we […]

When 1 + 1 does not equal 2

When we face illness, it really helps to keep things simple.    Simple cause and effect, problem and cure, action and reaction.  We want to feel better NOW and we don’t have time to fuss and bother.  We may want to take a million supplements, do exotic spiritual exercises, feel our feelings, eat fresh local organic […]

Western versus Holistic Camps

Which camp do you belong to?  Western medicine or holistic medicine? The right camp (according to me) is neither! If  you believe in holistic treatments, or western medicine, to the exclusion of the other, you’ve got your head in the sand.    If your head is in the sand, ignoring solutions that are right in front of […]
