When we enter this world we are pure and whole and then things happen to us that change us. They imprint on us and influence our thoughts, our processes and our actions. Quite often it is our very own parents that create this.

More often than not it is a subconscious belief that we are in freedom-2053281_960_720fact not even aware of. It is so innate that it is a part of us.

This is why I love theta healing.

I always begin my theta healing sessions with, “If you could change anything about your life, what would it be?” and we work from there. Most likely the work I do will end up being belief work.

Our beliefs impact every aspect of our lives. If you believe you are unworthy, guess what? You won’t get that dream job. You won’t live the lifestyle you want. You won’t attract the right partner. You won’t receive what you are truly worthy of.

There will be events in your life that trigger the belief so we deal with those. You will have emotions attached to the events so that is sorted out too. There will be emotions you may not have experienced so you are shown how to feel them. AND your belief is changed as well.body mind temple

This is all done at the theta level of your brainwaves. The same level that hypnotherapists work at but you do not need to be hypnotised. You simply sit and receive. What the subconscious believes the conscious follows. Theta healing really works!

So if you wish to be freed, let me know, and we can work together to remove those limiting beliefs and blocks that are holding you back!

Have you ever received a massage?

It is more than just relaxing! Let’s take a look at the benefits before I continue.

Massaging:

  • increases babyyour circulation
  • stimulates the nervous system and the internal organs of your body
  • improves elimination of impurities from the body
  • imparts firmness to your limbs
  • ensures you have better nourishment delivered to your whole body
  • promotes sturdiness of the body by toning the muscles and connective tissues which gives vigour to the muscles and tissues of the body.
  • is considered to be passive exercise
  • provides movement in the lymphatic system, aiding in detoxification of all tissue
  • gives better ability to handle strenuous, physical work and avoid injury or stiffness after exercise
  • increases levels of stamina
  • reduces body fatigue and exhaustion

and this is before we even look at what you can use to massage with!

There are many oils you can use to massage into your body. My advice is to use food grade, organic oils considering your skin is your largest organ.  You should be careful what you ‘feed’ it.

My choice however is fractionated coconut oil. This is an all natural carrier oil that readily absorbs into the skin, so you are not left all greasy. It is feather light, fragrance -free and spreads a long way and does not stain.

The fact that it is fragrance free makes it perfect to add your essential oils too. The benefits of essential oils on top of the massage is HUGE! Take the Aromatouch technique for example.AromatouchTechnique

This techniques uses 8 oils and blends to stimulate the known body meridian points and energy zones; relieve stress; enhance the immune system; reduce pain and invigorate.

One of the oil blends in the Aromatouch technique is in fact called Aromatouch and this alone is amazing as a massage oil. A few drops with your favourite carrier oil is all you need. The essential oils in Aromatouch blend are: basil, grapefruit, cypress, marjoram, lavender and peppermint.

If you would like the aromatouch blend, fractionated coconut oil or an aromatouch technique, I am a qualified practitioner, please comment below or email me at healingbygaia@gmail.com

For my Flourish events, I opted for a sunflower as the symbol.

Why a sunflower, you ask? Well, my thoughts were that sunflowers bring brightness and joy into our lives. They stand alone steadfast and strong and these are the traits I want Flourish events to bring to people.

sunflower-1591509__340

 

I decided to look more into the sunflower as a symbol and found that they are much, much more than that!

Research reveals that sunflowers represent vitality, intelligence and happiness. It is even known as the ‘happy flower’.

A sunflower is an example of long life (as it blooms for months on end).

Yellow is the colour of friendship so it also stands for adoration, admiration, plutonic love and friendship.

In some religions a sunflower means worship and faithfulness (as it follows the sun) and is associated with spiritual knowledge and the desire to seek light and truth.

Sunflower seeds are nourishment for yourself and others

The way they turn to face the sun also represents seeking positivity and strength.

I do believe I chose well. Don’t you?

In my journey I have plummeted and I have soared and I am sure there will be a lot more of both to come.

If there are no ups and downs in your life......The reason I want to talk about this is because when we are low or when we are high we feel that is how we are always going to be. In that moment. Truth is they never last for long. Because we need the whole spectrum of emotions to learn and to grow.

My story has included a huge amount of depression. I mostly have it covered these days but it can still sneak up on me and kick me up the arse.

When it does, though, I come out having had amazing growth. ❤

I always, always, always look for reasons or lessons in these places. I ask myself why do I feel the way I do. If I am blaming someone else I ask myself why I feel that way. More often than not what we don’t like in another is something we don’t like about ourselves. People are our mirrors. The people you attract into your life are, have or will be experiencing the same thing that you are or have or will be. Your vibe attracts your tribe. So take a look around you and feel the people you are attracting. Not reach out and touch them feel them just try and sense them.

When you feel great, or you feel like you have fixed everything and the whole world can be amazing you don’t prepare yourself for the possibility – no, fact – that you won’t be there long. Something will come along and tap you on the shoulder or kick you up the butt. And why would you prepare for it when it would detract from your high. Inevitably though it will happen because this is how we learn. The roller coaster has its place.

So how do you feel right now? Right in this moment? Sad? Lost? Happy? Whatever that feeling is I want you to say, “I am feeling ….. and I love that!” Go on!

I feel stressed out and I love that!How do you feel now? It is so easy to change the way you are feeling because it is just from thoughts and thoughts can be changed just like that. Remember this technique.

I tend to forget all my tricks when I am super down. I get caught up in my misery and don’t reach for my oils or techniques. I do however reach out to friends. To people I can talk it out with. I used to ring helplines because I didn’t want to worry my friends.

The best thing you can do is prevent feeling that low by being healthy, exercising, sleeping well, using aromatherapy, taking part in a hobby, getting into nature because you have a far better chance of pulling out of it quickly. Essential oils are amazing at altering your mood in seconds!! simply by inhaling them.

Here are some of my favourites:

Is positive thinking positive? Well that depends if your subconscious believes you. You can look in a mirror and say affirmations about yourself in the hopes to build confidence but if your subconscious doesn’t believe a word you are saying then you are in fact reinforcing the negative thoughts! Think about that for a moment…..Are you living life-

Besides, if you are trying to be happy all the time it can become particularly exhausting. Negative emotions affect our muscles in that they tense up and tighten. If you are not releasing that tension your muscles hold onto it. Venting or releasing is important. You can’t do that if you are ‘happy’ all the time.

I am often saying if you didn’t have the bad you wouldn’t appreciate the good. Another reason to not always be up. How do you know how good it is?

So let’s look at releasing tension. There are a number of ways. In the words of Taylor Swift you can “Shake it off”. Quite literally. What better way to release muscle tension. A friend of mine once told me he screams or shouts under water (he had a swimming pool) where no-one can hear. You could do the same into a pillow. Run. Take a bath. Walk it off. Get fit while you are at it then it’s even more of a positive. Exercise releases good brain chemicals.

While we are on the negative thoughts – I learned, today, about ‘amygdala hijack’. This is the process the brain goes into with fight or flight. Your normal thought processes go out the window and you do or say things you wouldn’t ordinarily say. Usually to those closest to us. When you feel strong emotions like that try counting backwards. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 – and blast off,  if you want 🙂 This brings back your cognitive thought and relieves the tension and stress response from your body.

So, back to the positive. I am all for positive affirmations and thinking positively but do it in a way that your subconscious will accept. Instead of saying, “I am loved by all”, say “I have more than enough love in my heart”. Break it down to believable words and you can build up to that first affirmation.

By all means smile too. Even if you aren’t feeling it, your subconscious recognises sIf we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking- Zen proverbmiling and releases those brain chemicals so that you DO feel like smiling. This is a great case of fake-it-til-you-make-it.

Use essential oils. Citruses are great for uplifting. No one can wear their grumpy pants when Wild Orange is around 😉 Lavender is calming and relaxing. Frankincense connects you to your authenticity. Blends like Elevation, Balance, Peace, Forgive..all amazing at shifting our moods without the head and muscle aches of holding it all in.

Interesting, isn’t it. It is all a matter of perception. I don’t know about you, but I can make mountains out of mole hills or make mole hills out of mountains. An occurrence to one person can be deathly scary but to another mediocre. We have all heard the question “Is the glass half empty or is the glass half full?” To that I say, “Be grateful you ha-We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars-Oscar Wildeve got a glass.”

Emotions can override our logic though, can’t they. We may not even understand why! It may be something we witnessed earlier on that day our subconcious recognised but not our conscious selves. It may be a memory trigger from when we were very young. There might even be a genetic influence carried over in our DNA (Yes! Its called epigenetics). Or, if you are spiritually inclined, which I am, it could be from a previous life. Any one of these influences could impact your reaction to something that would otherwise be trivial to you.

So how can we control that, you ask? Its not actually a matter of control. More of resolution. There are a few solutions. Kinesiology is a big YES to a lot of them as it helps you remove behavioural patterns. Theta helps you remove blocks. Hypnotherapy can take you back and deal with a situation. It really depends on where the emotion arises from and any one of those three solutions will help you find the root cause.

I personally have used essential oils of course, but have also had hypnotherapy, kinesiology and more. White Fir and Douglas Fir essential oils assist with generational healing. Frankincense is the oil of truth and connects you with your soul’s authenticity. Sandalwood raises you to higher levels of consciousness. Melissa awakens us to truth and light. Clary sage is the oil of clarity and vision. There are many you can use or even combine to help you.

My catchphrase is “If you can’t do anything about it, laugh at it” and believe me I laugh often. The thing is mostly there IS something you can do. The first is look inwards. If something is scaring you, upsetting you, making you angry….ask yourself why?? It could be that you are seeing something in another that you don’t like about yourself.If you can't do anything about it.....

My ‘Flourish’ events are all about teaching you the different ways you can get to the bottom of who you really are. I have different practitioners (including myself) speaking on different topics in different locations. I want to show you all that I have uncovered and give others the opportunity to show you what they have learned.

How much work do our feet do?? They carry us everywhere. They drive our car. Kick our footballs. Push us to jump. Get squeezed into ill fitting shoes. Walk on all types of terrain. Dance for us. They balance us.

“The greatest force in the universe is gravity and your feet take a major beating every day,” says Dr. Daniel Johnson.

foot-on-iceHaving broken my foot (here it is on ice ha ha) and noticing how much I rely on my feet raised the question, “How much care and attention do we give to our feet?”

People get their eyes checked. Exercise for their heart and lungs. Use hand moisturisers. Treat our hair. Shave or wax our legs. Rub cellulite creams onto our tush. Brush our teeth. Have hearing tests. Stretch our limbs. Meditate for our minds. Use all types of expensive products on our faces.

Seriously, though….

When is the last time you inspected your feet? If at all!

 

* Do you have pain in your feet?  Are you on your feet all day? Do you have skin or nail problems (ingrown or discolored toenails), corns, skin rashes, areas of hard skin on your feet? Do you have any sores on your feet that are not healing? Do you have foot odour? Do you have a foot injury? Do you have health problems such as diabetes or arthritis? Do you trip or fall often? Do you have problems finding shoes that fit comfortably? Do you have lumps or bumps, bunions or misshapen toes? Do you regularly wear heals that are two inches or higher?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions you should see a podiatrist.

Here are some tips:

give-your-feet-a-holidayDon’t ignore foot pain – it’s not normal. Look for thick or discolored nails (a sign of developing fungus), and check for cracks or cuts in the skin. Peeling or scaling of the soles of feet could indicate athlete’s foot. Any growth on the foot is not considered normal. Tea tree essential oil is ideal for relieving fungal infections. Wash your feet regularly, especially between the toes, and be sure to dry them completely. Trim toenails straight across. Be careful not to cut nails in corners on or the sides, it can lead to ingrown toenails. Make sure that your shoes fit properly. Select and wear the right shoe for the right activity that you are engaged in (example, running shoes for running). Alternate shoes – don’t wear the same pair of shoes every day. (There you go, ladies! A health reason for your shoe collection. 😉 ) At the beach or when wearing sandals always use sun block on your feet, just as you do on the rest of your body. Occasionally give them a soak in essential oils and epsom salts. They deserve it 😉
