Rest Reflection and Revelation

By |March 13th, 2018|

Realizing that you’ve reached the breaking point can be frightening;
it can also lead to feelings of denial, or anger, helplessness or even self-pity.
Admitting that the pain, fatigue or illness has brought you to your knees is a sign of strength. Allowing yourself to feel and to show your vulnerability is good, very good. Listening to what you need and asking for help when it’s bigger than you is even better.
When exhaustion took me over, I had to succumb to the illness. Accepting that I was sick and needed to slow way, way down wasn’t easy, but over the past 3 weeks I have had to.
And I’m glad I did. It was certainly inconvenient and I resisted, but my body led the way.

Of course there is a reason for everything, even shingles! I will explain why this is good for you to know.

Be a Diet Detective and Reduce your Pain

By |February 24th, 2018|

One surefire way to get a handle on your inflammation and chronic pain is through diet. As you get clear on your food triggers, it is easy to control your symptoms, and be motivated to make the changes that support a healthy, pain-free lifestyle.

Be a Diet Detective


Here are some powerful, effective tools to help you really understand just what you are putting into your body.

Remember, one man’s food is another man’s poison!

Your dashboard warning light is on!

Symptomatology is a powerful and effective diagnostic tool used to determine the causes of imbalances in our bodies. Symptoms are like the warning lights on your dashboard. Food sensitivities, allergies, digestive distress, constipation, headaches, body pain and joint issues, depression, sleep disturbances, there are literally hundreds of symptoms, are simply your body’s way of letting you know there is an imbalance, a state of dis-ease occurring.

If your “service engine” light in your […]

Fire is dangerous for your health that’s why Inflammation is such a Hot Topic

By |February 12th, 2018|

Supplements that nourish, repair and renew the cell bring the free radical damage and the related inflammation to its knees. Free radical damage feeds the fire, the inflammation, so when you get a strong arsenal of anti-oxidants into the body, the cell, then the fire begins to die and eventually with the right pieces in place it is extinguished.

Heaing Love, cause it’s February and it’s Time

Healing Love

Cause you are ready to dance a little and smile a lot.
And because no one needs to suffer, you’re ready and it’s time!
There’s nothing so powerful as a woman who feels healthy, vibrant and fit.

And nothing makes a woman feel more vulnerable, lost, weak, lacking in courage and confidence than being ruled and overwhelmed by pain and fatigue.

The mission of Soul Nourishment, is to explore the whys and hows of helping more women feel balance, ease, freedom and joy.

When I think back to some of the miserable days I spent in pain and overwhelm, living with full-on fibromyalgia and migraine headaches, I go back to my healing story.

Aligning With Your Heart

By |October 31st, 2017|

Have you ever found you’ve been running as fast as you can only to discover that you’re going in the wrong direction? That can be a bummer, but it can also be enlightening.

 

This past couple of months I have been running really, really fast and I really believed it was going to be an exhilarating, liberating experience. Well, it was a successful experience or should I say experiment? It served to remind me of who I was a few years back, of the busy life I used to live that led to life threatening illness, chronic pain and anxiety. And I am really not interested in going there ever again.

 

I have made major changes and choices the past few years. I have moved mountains in my life to get where I am; and I am protecting and honouring this beautiful life that I have very mindfully created.

My purpose has […]

When the Dark Night of the Soul drops by

By |October 3rd, 2017|

It is precisely because we resist the darkness in ourselves that we miss the depths of the loveliness, beauty, brilliance, creativity, and joy that lie at our core.   ~Thomas Moore  

You know those days, or nights when certain sadness, a sense of malaise, an uncomfortable emotion is hanging around?

This fall I’m feeling a little bit of that, (just a little though)!

It is elusive but I catch its scent as it drifts by my heart, and through my mind and body. Sometimes it is just sitting there. Waiting…waiting for me to notice and give it some attention. Inviting me into the emotion of grief or emptiness, or loneliness.

 

When I am distracted and override the feeling, it moves in a different direction. Just to catch my attention. To remind me that it’s hanging around. An ache in a joint, a mild scratching in my throat… Netflix binging is in order but […]

Great News! It’s All In Your Head!

By |September 11th, 2017|

I’ve got some good news and some bad news: Have you ever noticed that when times get tough the pain goes crazy?

I remember the worst pain I ever felt was my migraines. They blindsided me, they nauseated me, and they brought me to my knees — and my bed.

I began to notice that daily headaches quickly became migraines when I was worried, stressed, or anxious. That was pain manifesting from my thoughts . . . from my head! I knew I would begin to experience pain and nausea when I got stressed, and yes indeed — I sure did.

I also found that when my mother was very ill I was hobbling around due to the pain and stiffness in my knees. That was a response to fear, grief, and stress. My thoughts created emotions, which led to chronic pain.
Your thoughts and emotions can and do have a huge impact […]

The Benefits of Tibetan Singing Bowls in Meditation and Healing

By |August 5th, 2017|

Good Vibrations!

It is with pleasure that I introduce sound healing to my QiGong practice. Each session, in person and by distance, will include the beautiful healing energy and vibration of Tibetan Singing Bowls.

Sound is an important element in QiGong practice. Sound carries a vibration, and this vibration addresses body, mind, heart, and soul. The vibration from Tibetan bowls addresses disease, or dis-ease, chronic pain, inflammation — whatever needs balancing and healing. The sound vibration also builds immunity and sets a mood of happiness and joy.

Tibetan bowl healing is a perfect compliment to QiGong practice. It enhances all of the benefits of QiGong.  

There are so many benefits of Tibetan Singing Bowls! They reduce:

Stress
Anxiety
Blood pressure
Anger
Fear

And Tibetan Singing Bowls enhance:

Chakra balancing
Healing of body, heart, mind and spirit
Circulation
Mental and emotional clarity
Stillness
Peace
Well-being
Stillness
Happiness
Joy!

The 80/20 Rule and How it Keeps me Pain Free

By |July 31st, 2017|

Making natural choices to eliminate chronic pain and other symptoms of inflammation can be easy once you know how. Yes, you need to make smarter choices to support your healing, but there is wiggle room, and you can still enjoy a cocktail or favourite treat once in a while. Once you’ve achieved balance, you can use the 80/20 rule to maintain your health while enjoying the good things in life.
First: Become a Diet Detective
When I began my healing journey, I was surprised at how quickly my pain improved with just a few changes. The changes appeared to be minor, but for me they were actually major. The first thing I did was begin writing down everything I ate, and when. I noted my pain, mood, sleep, digestion, energy levels, and any other symptoms that may or may not be related.

I became a diet detective, analyzing the facts and coming […]
