Tapping To Clear Food Cravings

“What tapping does incredibly well is disrupt the fight-or-flight response, quickly allowing your body to return to a more relaxed state in which it can digest food properly and support healthier digestion and faster metabolism.”     Jessica Ortner, author of The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence As we move into the summer holiday, BBQ and eating more season, I thought I would share a new book from our friends at The Tapping Solution. Whether your goal is releasing excess weight or simply feeling better about your food choices and therefore feeling … continue reading

The Amazing Vagus Nerve Complex

The Amazing Vagus Nerve Complex   The Vagus Nerve is a cranial nerve that extends up into our brains, even though it is not shown in this image. Following is a somewhat technical description of our amazing vagus nerve complex.  This is a cranial nerve which, quite elegantly, travels from within our brains, down through all of our major organs, and into our gastro-intestinal system, governing taste, speech, circulation, digestion and so much more. I am suspecting that our so called gut-brain is influential in so many of our chronic illnesses and conditions. In our practice … continue reading

Accessing & Trusting Your Body Wisdom

One way to find relief that helps us move beyond taking a pill or searching the internet, is to get in touch with our Body Wisdom. You may call this intuition, guidance, knowing or even magic. I have found that when I have a question about what is happening in my body – my head wants to figure out a solution and Do something. When I take the time to slow down, get quiet and ask my body for information, I usually get a different answer and somehow wiser information. I might ask “What is … continue reading

Total Lunar Eclipse on Friday – Transformation or Chaos?

“The full moon on the night of July 27, 2018, presents the longest  total lunar eclipse of the 21st century. The total phase of the eclipse –  called the totality – spans 1 hour 42 minutes and 57 seconds.” www.earthsky.org That’s exciting news!  And, unfortunately, we won’t be able to see the eclipse from north America this time.  I did find a place in Israel that will be live casting at www.bareket-astro.com, if you would like to follow the event.

Questions To Unwind Anxiety & Fear When Tapping

A powerful enhancement to our EFT healing practice is asking questions to unwind the symptoms of our anxiety and fear.  Remember that emotional issues are not just in our heads, they are held in our tissues.  When we are able to release emotional issues by tapping, our bodies are able to shift and change as well. Many of our physical conditions have their roots in past trauma.  Our childhood experiences have been found to correlate to persistent adult health conditions. When you are tapping to bring forth greater ease and calm, you might try asking … continue reading

Healing & Releasing the Past

When I was in the third grade in Santa Ana, California, I was tested and my school decided I would skip the fourth grade and go right into fifth grade.  I was delighted at the time because no one liked the fourth grade teacher.  Ahhhh… I remember loving the fifth grade teacher and what I was learning.  I went on from there – all the way through high school – never realizing that I was just as smart and quite a bit younger than everyone else in school. This caused me a great deal of … continue reading

What is Visioning Guided Meditation?

The purpose of Visioning guided meditation is to open a place in our consciousness for fresh ideas to be revealed.  We center ourselves in the silence, establishing awareness of the Divine within us and opening to our inner wisdom, intuition and guidance. Visions may appear in the form of images, colors, sounds or feelings.  At times nothing may be revealed.  We accept whatever comes or doesn’t come without judgment, knowing that more will be revealed. The questions:   1.  What is the HIGHEST VISION for my life/health/career? 2.  What must I RELEASE to fulfill this vision – what … continue reading
