April 2018 Updates

Hi all,
It’s been a few months since the last newsletter , where does the time go!
I have been super busy immersing myself in my latest training project, you may remember me starting in November 2017 , well 5 months into the 2 year training to become A Shamanic Practitioner and I am absolutely loving it.
shamanic healing
Using shamanic psychotherapy techniques  allows the client to use tools within a Safe and confidential space where they are able to use a Shamanic journey to delve deeper to within their own subconscious,  dream state, down through the layers  to access information and positive resources which they may be blocking from their conscious awareness. The journey takes the client to  a Theta brain wave state, which is a very deep trance like state.
Within this deep theta brain wave state (even without a “successful” journey) clients will often feel a deep sense of relaxation and well being, thus accessing a state conducive to spiritual, emotional, and physical healing.
I am loving the work so far , why not read my latest blog on Embracing the earth with the shamanic path and if this still doesn’t tell you enough then contact me for more information
water
One of the things I constantly speak to people about within my practice is the importance of hydration within the body.  A lack of quality hydration can lead to all sorts of conditions from infertility, auto immune conditions, allergies , chronic inflammation , cholesterol rising to name
but a few.
It’s not just as simple as gluggling a couple of extra glasses of water here and there, the body is 80% water and  if it is not in a constant state of hydration then the complications can be far reaching. If you are thirsty or have a dry mouth then you are waaaayyyyy beyond dehydrated. When the body is short of water Histamine is activated to try to send water (in order of priority) to the brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, and glands, then comes the muscles, bones and skin last.
If there is not enough reserve water  then it will be taken from the body which then makes the histamine over stimulated and the dis- ease of the body is shown in allergies, auto immune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, pains in joints, headaches, digestive distances , skin conditions, acid reflux , heartburn   Weight gain , hormonal imbalance , oestrogen dominance ,  CFS, fibro etc.
stress
Stress also plays a major  factor in creating dehydration within the body as the body is on a high state of “ adrenal response” when under stress. This means the body thinks it has run a marathon constantly, yet isn’t getting the water to re balance it.
Another factor to be aware of is that  when the body is dehydrated, it is also becoming deoxygenated.
We know that cancer thrives in a low-oxygen and acidic environment ( severe dehydration) in 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg won a Nobel , he concluded that cancer cells grow due to anaerobic (without oxygen) respiration and use sugar fermentation for energy whereas healthy cells thrive in an aerobic (with oxygen) environment using protein for energy.
Prevention is always the best route .
soul
The Sunday morning meditation workshops have been a huge success and I love showing The students some great techniques to facilitate their own energy systems for self help and healing.
We are aware that we  have a physical body, we are aware that we have an emotional self …if we are lucky we may also be aware that our emotions affect our physical symptoms, but how often do you pay attention to your energy body (chakras and meridians)?
The energy body are our subtle energy centres within both our field and physical self.
If the energy body is in balance then we are less likely to take the full impact of emotional disturbance into our physical body ( which then becomes  dis-ease or dis-harmony ).
Within the workshops the students learn about the chakras and how to balance them . Over time I can see the transformation and growth in these individuals as they both grow in confidence and awareness.
We also learn about the powerful art of visualisation, using the power of the subconscious mind to empower, gain insights or let go of old patterns .
Talking of letting go of old patterns, have you ever thought about the power of your ego? Why not read about it here.
There is also some seated qi gong , mudra meditation or nidra yoga depending on the groups needs.
Why not join us click  here for dates . Please note it is not a drop in class and must be prebooked.
Have a lovely month and I look forward to seeing you soon
Much love

Mind, Body and Spirit Festival Birmingham 2017

✨✨✨✨Hi beautiful beings of light,✨✨✨✨

Last week was such an amazing week I thought I would write a little blog about it and our little visit to Mind,Body and Spirit Festival 2017.

Before I tell you about what we loved about Mind,Body and Spirit Festival i wanted to share a little bit about what a week looks like at Peace of Mind Health.
I do love my work so much. Every day is complete Different. Just like every person is different you can never make assumptions as with every single client they will have a different life story which will affect every one of us differently.
The diversity my work brings really does balance my mind, body and spirit for sure !

Starting the week with Reiki and some interesting soul journey work with one client who had such a deep heart wound that they had totally disconnected from their soul . This work can be so freeing to do and we discovered how to start to clear some of those deep rooted issues. 💕

Mid week I had a cancellation ….for a very good reason , the best of reasons in fact!
The client had one session of Fertility Method Massage which had released a block that was holding her back from her unexplained fertility. This client contacted to say that the fertility massage appointment would no longer be required ! ….Pregnant 💕💕💕

Well with a couple of Transformational Coaching sessions , Fertility Method Massage and Reflexology, you can see how interesting the week gets for me .
I’m a Gemini, say no more 😂

So at the end of the week myself and a very dear friend Charlotte Davis Of Ladies That Do Networking  , took ourselves off to Mind ,Body and Spirit Festival in Birmingham .

What a lovely way to end a fabulous week.
I love Mind, Body and Spirit Festivals and go every year . It’s amazing to be around so much love, energy, peace and like minded souls who (mostly) leave their egos at the door.

There is so much to do at the Mind,Body and Spirit Festival That the day just flies by .
We did some

My favourite artist is Kwali Kumara. I just love her Heart Healer Meditation…and her hair is amazing! Like really amazing !
This workshop  included a Kundalini mantra and heart meditation for healing & purification followed by the sacred sound vibrations of the Venus and symphonic gongs. What’s not to love !!!

After that we squeezed ourselves into a packed teepee for a SoundBath and Mantra Magic workshop with Anne Malone. This was extremely Relaxing with the healing sounds and vibrations of Tibetan Bowls, Hang, Shamanic Drum and Rainstick a flowing as Anne takes you deeper into your Heart Song.

Doing the sound work reminded me of just how powerful those vibrations are for clearing the 3rd eye and even more so for clearing the physical body chakras ( especially those old tribal blocks ). I’m just writing material for my 2018 self development workshops on chakras and sacred goddess so some sound meditation may just work it’s way into the programme.

The rest of Mind , Body and Spirit Festival is a bit of a blur ,I vaguely remember a chakra cleanse and we attended a quantum field work workshop…..so much I can’t even remember it all.

All I know is by the end of the day at Mind, Body and Spirit Festival we were definitely  super blissed out happy bunnies 💕💕💕

Oh yes , I simply couldn’t resist the conscious chocolate stall !!!
Just 6 bars purchased between myself and Charlotte, I think we did rather well. 😂😋 …..
Until next year !

Did anyone else attend mind , body and spirit festival ? Would love to hear what stood out for you all X

” Who do you become when things don’t go your way ?”

” Who do you become when things don’t go your way ?”

I find this question quite powerful and thought provoking , giving me great insight into what in my life i need to focus on. Through our life experiences we will all have a different story and respond differently , if the answer to this question gives you an insight into an area of your life that you would like to work on or improve then read on!

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

How we respond to difficult situations is a choice. We can choose to react with emotional / behavioural negativity (i.e. anger, frustration, overwhelming sadness, giving up, a feeling of unjustness with the world , stubbornness, using rituals as a coping mechanism etc) , or other forms of more physical negativity (i.e lashing out, using drugs , alcohol or using any other negative habit or ritual as a coping mechanism )

These days , I try to chose to respond to it holistically, by surrendering to the universe and by letting go of control and trusting what the universe brings to me.

I am not saying this is always easy , or that i always get it right. However my awareness is always here and my awareness brings with it the fabulous insight that it is ALWAYS my actions that are my choice.

When things don’t go my way, or something difficult or unexpected shows up in my life, i try to take a step back, this allows me to have a clearer viewpoint of the whole picture, and decide how i would like to respond to the situation.

Some of the tools and awareness that have helped me overcome difficult challenges and experiences within my own life are listed here…….i hope you find them insightful and helpful. I like to have these things written down in a journal , as when things do not go my way i then have a “go to” place which allows me to think and feel differently about the situation or experience.

Be CURIOUS , when you conclude something you are making a judgement about how it will end….therefore you are limiting your options. When you keep yourself in the questioning of the situation then you keep your perspective and therefore options open to potentials and possibilities.

Be BRAVE, it can be quite frightening and overwhelming when things do not go your way. Remember this is a phase of your life, not your whole life. Remind yourself that you have had other situations in your life that felt like there was no way out, no solution etc. ….and you survived it then.  Ride those initial feelings out and you will find a way forward , a plan or a solution.

Be OPEN to things being different to how you expected and to new experiences. It serves no purpose to hold on to past , what could have been, should have been, and comparisons  etc because it can make us feel bitter , unhappy and resentful. Accept the situation for what it is , let go of judgement , whys etc and accept yourself. We are all doing the best we can.

Be KIND to yourself.  Accept your feelings, its ok not to feel ok or to feel angry etc. We need to experience a full range of emotions. Its healthy and you are being honest and true to yourself. Even though the situation or  life hasn’t turned out the way you had planned, it doesn’t mean you failed. Stop judging yourself.  Forgive yourself if you need to , TO HELP YOU MOVE FORWARD.

Be in your HEART not in your head. Make decisions and take actions from the heart not the head. The head tries to rationalise and  make sense of what “should” happen  the heart feels what is right. It may not be logical at all but when you take action from the heart your intuition is working and it is exceptionally powerful. When i work from my heart i am ALWAYS guided on the right path. When things are not going my way and i reflect i am ALWAYS in my head and not in my heart.
