Have you ever found yourself frustrated at not being able to be as vibrant and healthy as you want to be, despite all your best efforts? Sometimes it can be helpful to dig deeper to identify any blocks that may be getting in the way of your natural state of well being. This video shares the powerful effects these obstacles can have on our body functioning, and how we can transform our wellness at this level. Case study shared with permission.
I have been inspired by the shifting I see in our global community as we reflect and begin to reimagine our world and what we wish to create. What if our model of health was one of these areas we re-vision? What would it look like to support our natural self healing mechanisms, to strengthen our body and spirit so that we can respond to pathogens and other health challenges in the best way possible? I am excited to think of a time when this becomes our primary approach to health, instead of simply the treatment of disease.
Yes natural therapies have many effective remedies that can act against pathogens and heal diseases - but that is just a part of what a natural approach to health offers. To shift into a natural health model means to foster our well being, to strengthen our resistance to disease rather than simply treating diseases once they are established. Such an approach empowers us to be proactive with our health, to consider and nurture that which needs support so that we can allow our natural self healing mechanisms to be restored rather than just fixing what has been broken.
I invite you to deepen your connection with your well being during this time. What areas are calling for nurturing in order for you to thrive? Are there mental or emotional blocks you notice to bringing in this nourishment? Do you know that you are worth it? Worth the time, worth caring for and providing the right resources for? Do you recognise that your body is a wise organism capable of self healing? Or do you feel fearful with your health, not knowing that it is possible to be vibrant and well? Let’s take this time to re-vision our approach to our health together. Let’s foster our wellness in a proactive and nurturing way. Let’s take care of ourselves and each other as we move consciously into this new world.
Blessings and greetings to you all! I had a beautiful reflection from a plant friend I felt drawn to sit beside for my lunch today. The plant was a young Kawakawa, but unlike the many abundant Kawakawa we have on our property, this one wasn't looking in peak health. Instead of the rich brown bark, this plant had white, scaly patches on it's branches, while the leaves were speckled and small. My first thought was that I had been drawn there to offer healing to the plant, and began wondering what might have caused these issues. However, on tuning in I had an interesting message come to me, which was this:
How can we offer healing when we don't see the wholeness of a being, and deeply love it in it's entirety? This struck a chord with me. How easy it is to focus our attention on the problem, the disorder, and move to dissect it, understand it, and make it all better. What I was being reminded of was to firstly embrace all that the plant was, to love it warts and all, without trying to fix or solve anything. As I shifted to this focus, I felt a tremendous amount of love and affection for the plant, seeing the plant's beauty, loving even the white bark as part of the journey that it had had on this planet thus far. I felt the joy of simply being in our connection, and from this space of non-judgemental love I was then able to witness healing energy coming in for my plant friend.
We are taught to look for problems and to solve them, to figure things out and fix them. Of course, these can be useful strategies at times. However, what if we approached ourselves firstly with deep acceptance and nurturing love as a place to begin our healing, instead of the anxiety and division that a "fix the problem" mentality can foster? Ultimately, such a mind set tells us that part of us is wrong or broken, which floods our body with chemicals associated with fear, anxiety and stress - all of which are in direct opposition to our body's healing mechanisms. Our rejuvenating and repairing processes operate best when the body is in a restful, peaceful place - when we feel the security of being deeply accepted and loved, warts and all.
This is the approach I bring to support people with their health. It is a particular strength of ThetaHealing, a modality that supports us to heal that which blocks us from being the vibrant, love filled beings we naturally are - all with a sense of appreciation and reverence for the wisdom of the body and what these blocks may have been serving for us in our lives.

Yours with love,
Imagine food being a joy and a pleasure in your day, free of any anxiety, guilt or 'shoulds'. Imagine you were also able to work with food to be a primary source of healthcare in your day, both for yourself and your family. This is how our relationship with food can be in our lives, yet we have many blocks that get in the way.
