Rest Reflection and Revelation

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.

I am here in a physical body and I know that when something as powerful as this virus has my full attention, it’s time to take a look at what is really going on. I know that shingles lays dormant in your system waiting for fatigue and stress and then it can grab you.

I had been lazy with my supplements (oops!) and it was time to strengthen my immune system, bring down inflammation and support my nervous system. I chose USANA Cellsentials to build my immunity and energy, Profavonal C to control the inflammation and BioMega to support my nervous system and skin condition.  To learn more about the benefits of top quality supplementation go HERE.

Cause it’s not about the virus it’s about WHY the virus and WHY now?

So I gave in, I allowed it to run the show, re-adjusted my calendar, got into my cozy flannels and began to spend time in my bed, with the peace, and the quiet. I surrounded myself with flowers and candles and incense and did some investigating with my Tarot deck and pendulum, and had time for meditation, qigong, reading, journalling, and pulled out my favourite Buddhist teachings, and my all important supplement protocol for a virus. 

This practice of stillness clarified that that change was in order. I was out of alignment and no chiropractor could help, luckily I have other ways. ;))

When we seek the Truth, we need to accept what we find.

Have you ever found yourself swept up in things and directions that you believe in and that you feel you are called to be doing?

BUT your intuition, your heart and even the universe are letting you know that you’re off course. The map you’re following is not yours, it is the wrong map, you are in strange territory, and you are lost.

Things look familiar but they don’t resonate with you. Where the hell are ya?

Let me tell you, you are lost baby.

But you are determined, the guidebook said this was the way, and so you begin to look for another path, or a fork in the road. You are confused, scared, alone and helpless. This must be the way, you go a little further. You are exhausted, and drained and discouraged from the journey. Looking ahead down the road you lose all hope. Ugghhh! Next thing you know you crash and maybe even burn.

So you have no choice but to take a break, to regroup. That’s when you realize that the person handing out the maps gave the same map to everyone.

You need your very own map to get you where you want to go.

This is what healing is about. You may have had well-meaning advice, from friends and family, the almighty internet, and had a band-aid put here and there, but nothing has worked.

It really is a blessing when you realize that signs on the road are actually getting you further and farther off track. You are wasting precious time and this is causing you more and more pain. Getting lost has allowed things to fester and become even more painful… even when you’ve been trying your damnedest to make them work anyway.

When you accept change is needed, please ask for professional experienced guidance, and support. Creating a new map for healing with the right support is the one that will get you where you want to go. It takes you down the road to healing, pain elimination, and a new beginning.

So it’s time for course correct.

Journey to Self

You need time; you need to get very quiet and to listen, to reflect on what is and is not working.

There may be grief and a few tears, but as the dust settles you begin to gently course correct. You ask someone who knows the way, someone who knows how to get there.

Bev’s Story

A few years ago Bev came to see me. She added me to her collection of health care providers. She was seeing about 5 other people and was not getting results. She had wasted a lot of time.

Each person gave her a different direction to follow and different guidelines and rules. She was worse now than when she began her journey and had recently been diagnosed with Irritable bowel syndrome, osteoporosis and psoriasis, and she was experiencing pain. Bev was upset and afraid, and really confused. After wasting so much time and receiving so many different opinions she really was lost.

This called for an Auricular Therapy session. This practice is highly specialized and is an energetic technique that can identify and treat the underlying causes of physical, mental and emotional imbalances.


The auricular therapy session gave me the information needed to move Bev into a healing protocol that was unique and appropriate to her. It was a map designed with the right supplements, and homeopathic and energetic treatments at the dosage and time.

Bev and I continued our work together and she regained her health and her confidence and got back to enjoying her life. With time her gut healed and her psoriasis cleared up, her bones began to re-calcify, as did the other symptoms she was experiencing.

Bev needed her own roadmap and she needed to go the right speed and distance at the right time with the correct turns and curves to get where she wanted to go.

When we live out of alignment we can feel fear, anxiety, pain and suffering, and deep fatigue, and become ill.

These are all symptoms of imbalance. So the secret is in WHY?

What is causing the imbalance?

What is really going on and what changes can you make to heal, and improve the quality of your life?


With the proper guidance it becomes clearer and easer and you are able to listen and make adjustments you will find that your body feels better; the aches and pains diminish and you feel relief. A benefit of this is that you will find that you are more positive, happy and fulfilled.

The past few weeks I had the gift time to reflect. I realized it was time for a course correct.

I had a revelation…a few actually.

If I really want to keep my immune system strong and regain my energy and vitality I need to make changes.


Sitting in meditation I realized where the resistance has been and what I need to change, and I am in the process of doing that.

I, like you, deserve and need to live in a way that serves me, that nourishes me and gives me balance and joy.


To that end, changes have been made and more are unfolding. There will be changes made in my professional practice as well.

Stay tuned…

If you can sit in stillness and listen to your heart I hope you find that the search for your healing map will lead you to the right health care professional and true healing.


If you want a professional assessment and treatment program, I use Auricular Medicine, intuition, and years of professional experience as my primary diagnostic tools and I use principles applied to Holistic Nutrition, Homeopathy, and Auricular Acupuncture as my primary therapeutic applications.
