Farewell To CRI Hertford

Posted on 20 February, 2013 at 15:32 Comments comments (12)
For the last few years it has been a pleasure to give voluntary treatments to clients of CRI (Crime Reduction Initiative) drug & alcohol rehabilitation centre in Hertford. The clients were able to relax and find their own inner stillness in quite a profound way through Aromatherapy massage, Reiki and seated massage. Many of them found that the benefit lasted for several days afterwards, which all helps with chosing a healthier way to live.
Addiction always has an emotional root cause.. the challenge is to uncover the cause and be able to move on from it. In a few cases, I was also able to do Journey work; which allowed one client to let go of the huge guilt and grief felt for the loss of a friend. This person was finally able to forgive themself for something which was not their fault, but which they had taken on responsibility for. It is so rewarding to see someone put down a huge burden they have been carrying around for  so long.
 
Sadly, I have now ended my service with CRI, as there are new opportunities I would like to pursue. I would like to say thanks to all of the staff at the centre who made me so welcome and supported my time there.

Kenya Here I Come!

Posted on 23 September, 2011 at 19:09 Comments comments (9)
So I finally get to do what my hearts been yearning to do, which is to be of service living and working abroad within a disadvantaged community. My visit to Kenya has been set up by a lovely friend - Naraya Urban-Winterfeldt (a fellow Journey Practitioner: http://www.narayajourney.com) who has devoted much of her time over the last 18 years to working on social improvement projects with local communities in Kenya. She oversees the Journey Outreach programme in Africa/ Kenya, and was instrumental in setting the necessary wheels in motion to make my visit possible; for which I am truly grateful!
 
My placement at Hill Breeze Orphan school in Oyugis is being co-ordinated by a lovely lady based in Nairobi (Fazilah Bazari), who founded Holistic Community Kenya http://www.holisticommunity.com/blog/ and the plan is to go and spend three weeks there.
These children have very little, and their lives have been touched by HIV either in parents or family. A wonderful man called Ken Ariri founded the school after he was guided to do this by a 'voice from God'. I will be using some Journey tools to help the children to open to their own highest potential, and maybe do Journey processes with the teachers and the local community too if the opportunity arises.
I am so looking forward to hanging out with the kids, playing games with them and maybe helping them with their English too!
 
My accomodation is being kindly provided at the school, and will be quite primitive: I will be given water for my shower, (no running water!) and electricity only at selected times. It will certainly help me to appreciate how it is possible to manage with very little, and the creature comforts I have back home!
 
Look out for the next installment!

Aromatherapy for the Home

Posted on 5 July, 2011 at 17:35 Comments comments (6)
If you (like me) love the aroma of essential oils and would like some advice on how to use them at home, I would recommend an excellent book by Valerie Ann Worwood, titled 'A Fragrant Pharmacy' (A complete guide to Aromatherapy & Essential Oils). It gives a profile of oils for a basic care kit and many recipes for blends you can use for self treatment. Have fun if you do decide to try it! And I'm always available to advise if you need any additional help.

I love to laugh

Posted on 29 June, 2011 at 19:19 Comments comments (9)
Do you remember the 'I love to laugh' song from the film Mary Poppins? It was such a funny illustration that laughter and smiling are contagious! I've always thought it was a great analogy for how our energy vibrations are affected by either happy or sad emotions too. When we think happy thoughts, our vibrations are higher and a positive chemistry (endorphins) is released into our bodies. This is why we feel so healthy and talk about people 'glowing' when they are in love.
The opposite applies when we feel sadness or negative emotions; our vibrations are lower and if these emotions are suppressed the biochemistry released does not support optimum health.
Laughter therapy is recognised to be beneficial to good health.. what a great way to heal youself!

First post: Cell memories and emotions affecting health

Posted on 28 June, 2011 at 20:15 Comments comments (73)
Really excited about finally getting my website up and running. I see it as a reflection of my values and offerings and would value any feedback you may have :) It is still work in progress to some extent, so do check back to see what changes I've made! Meantime, here's some food for thought:
 
Dr. Deepak Chopra who made a life study of successful survivors of life threatening illness found they had two things in common:
1. They were able to access something beyond the mind to stimulate healing; Chopra calls this ‘Infinite Intelligence’.  
2. They were able to let go of memories stored at a cellular level.
 
Cells in the body regenerate at different speeds. In the eye they take only 48 hours, whereas cells in the liver take 6 weeks to regenerate. The question is: what stops these cells from regenerating healthily? Dr. Chopra postulated that memories can be stored in the cells and can cause degenerative disease patterns to be passed on, preventing healthy new cell replication.
Dr. Candace Pert went further in her book 'Molecules of Emotion' which describes her Nobel Prize nominated research on “how emotions affect our bodies at the cellular level”. She showed that if trauma and negative emotions are not resolved, they become physically stored as a cellular memory, preventing the cells involved from playing their part in the constant chemical communication taking place within the body.
In other words, when emotions are suppressed, a specific biochemistry is released into the blood stream and blocks certain cell receptors, which are then isolated and cannot communicate with any other cells in the body. If these cells remain blocked over time and if disease happens, it's likely to manifest in the part of the body where the cells are blocked.
These memories not only 'switch off' these cells, but they can lead to emotional and physical disease years after the events originally occurred. The Journey process is a powerful technique that allows one to access these memories and clear out the emotional trauma so that forgiveness can be given and the issue let go of. This causes your cells to 'switch back on', and enables them to once again regenerate perfectly.
