Twenty-Nine Minutes to Self-Healing

Posted in Self-Care and Self-Healing

When we spend time in nature we heal ourselves in deep and lasting ways.  Sometimes all I need to do when I’m feeling off-balance, worried, or down-spirited is to go for a good long walk.

Some time last year I wrote a post on the seven healing elements in our natural world and how they connect with the energies of each of the seven chakras. Please feel free to click here if you’d like to read this article.

Now what I’d love to share with you this week is a guided process I recorded out in the bush near my home today. This meditation will provide you with wonderfully useful information about how nature heals us and will empower you to have a bigger role in your own healing and self-nurturing.  Enjoy the recording everyone.  Much love, Tricia

I’m a Healer and So Are You

Posted in Self-Care and Self-Healing

Do you realise that in every moment of every day your amazing body is healing itself and your energy is doing the same with your energetic self?

And, here’s the piece I really want to share, whenever you are with another person or even thinking of them, you have the capacity to heal them too, simply by holding a feeling of love for them.  We also do this for the land and the entire natural world including all the animals we encounter when we feel appreciation for them. Plus, this process is reciprocal, when you give, you receive.

Now this isn’t about effort, being a perfect example of loving energy, or being attached to curing or saving anyone. This is just what we naturally do as human beings and we need not be concerned about the outcome. But since we’re doing it anyway, why not acknowledge this beautiful power, and do it with clear and loving intentions.

When we love nature it loves us right back.
When we love nature it loves us right back.

It all begins with self-love and the understanding that we are all perfect just as we are.  This is not about making things better because something is wrong.  It’s about embracing all that is present in a more loving way so we elevate ourselves and everyone else into more comfortable and graceful lives.

Confused?  Hmm, I’ll try saying it another way…

When my daughter was almost four, we discovered she had asthma.  The diagnosis meant a hospital visit in the early hours of the morning and a worrisome twenty-four hours while the doctors brought her breathing capacity back to normal with regular Ventolin inhalations.

As this little episode coincided with my emergence into the world of natural therapies both in my work and in my approach to caring for the health of my children, I felt I could have a go at curing her with a combination of kinesiology, flower essences and a few other tricks I’d learned along the way.

Well apparently this was not to be, because seven years later, although her experience of asthma is now mild and occasional, my efforts to fix my little girl all up and make it go away did not succeed.

What I eventually concluded was that it was not my role to make this illness completely disappear for my daughter. I’m sure some of what I did from the intention of love, helped her recover from her bouts of sickness and reduced the severity of the episodes, but for whatever mysterious reason, she is somehow meant to experience this condition. End of story.

We serve ourselves and those we love best by being in complete acceptance and love regarding any situation we find ourselves or them in, and then simply loving into that reality.  That’s it, that’s all and yes, we do make a difference when we can do this with minimal attachment to what happens next.

For me there was a lot of learning to be had around releasing my need to be the perfect mother, to have perfectly healthy children and to be able to cope gracefully with caring for a sometimes uncooperative small child while she needed to be at home from school to get better.  Ahh, parenthood, the greatest teacher I’ve had.

On another note…

Posted in Self-Care and Self-Healing, and Trust The Universe

Change is a good thing right?

What I’ve noticed is that when a big change is around the corner for me, the little changes that precede it often turn from molehills into mountains right before my eyes.

This is what happened last weekend when, with the help of a very handy techie-woman from Fiverr.com I transferred my website from the WordPress.com platform to WordPress.org.

The reason for doing this is so I can do more businessy type stuff on my site and have more control over how I use it.

Well I won’t go into the details, but it would seem the universe conspired to add some twists and turns to this seemingly straightforward process just to test my mettle, or was it to help me to fully embody my commitment to this business of mine?  I don’t know.

All I know is that as a result of me zigging, and undoing what my techie-woman had zagged for me, I completely erased my website – containing four years of blog posts – from visible existence.  And so it stayed for three long days while I waited for her to come back to me over the weekend.

My natural urge to keep working away at it (in complete ignorance) came rushing forward and it took all my deeper awareness and intuitive insights to prevent me from making the problem even worse by trying to fix it myself.

The sun still came up each day.
The sun still came up each day.

I have to say, this is where my morning meditation practice saved the day.  Getting up each morning to meditate on those difficult three days allowed me to:

  • Be present with how I was feeling
  • Be in a reasonable level of acceptance around what had happened
  • Be open to however it was going to work out in the end

My intuition kept telling me all was well and that the website would be restored but gosh it was hard to let go and trust this would really happen.

So I’m on the air again with all my posts and most of the images intact and I’ve learnt a lot about trusting universe, feeling helpless and letting go of the past.  Ahh, the benefits of a tricky experience, they’re so much richer than the easy ones.

Now what I’d love for you all to do is to please sign up to this new version and you’ll receive the opportunity to listen whenever you’d like to a beautiful healing meditation I’ve recorded to help you reunite with your inner child.
