Emotions and Feelings Do Affect Our Physical Body!

There are several different channels located on key points of our bodies through which energy can flow in and out in a constant stream. These energetic channels are called chakras and act like little spinning wheels pulling energy in and out from seven key centers in our body and hands.
Each one is associated to an organ and its system. For example, the eyes are linked to the energy of the 3rd eye chakra, which governs our visual centre, helping us plan and orientate via our frontal lobe in the brain. Chakras can either be open or constricted depending on the energy flowing through them, which in turn will affect each and every organ that they are linked to.
Every aspect that we experience, sense, and perceive through our 5 physical senses and energetic senses are translated through the chakras via the endocrine system and nervous systems into parts of our physical bodies associated with that certain chakra. E.g. when we are heart sore, we feel the effect in our heart.
When a certain feeling or tension continues over a period of time, and not resolved, it can create a symptom in our physical body, signalling the law of cause and effect of one’s conscious and subconscious mind.

Clearing old issues and allowing current issues to be resolved before ones physical body is affected, is a fundamental aspect to a healthy body.

Is there a Spiritual link to Food Cravings?

The body, mind and spirit are all integral parts of the “whole” person, so everything we do is part of the internal cues of what is occurring inside of us – Outward symptoms are the language of our “psyche” and when interpreted correctly, can be useful tools to improving our health and well-being.
Most suggest that cravings may be linked to an emotional aspect or a lack of a physical aspect in the body e.g. a vitamin shortage – but is there also a spiritual link?

It is always important to investigate that a craving is not due to a lack of vital minerals and vitamins in the body, through an unhealthy diet, or a diseased state, and this must be ruled out first.


Sugary foods:
Sugary foods increase the biochemical ‘pleasure’ neurotransmitter serotonin. From a spiritual level, one is looking for the sweetness of life – which translates as an inability to process sadness.

Salty foods:
During times of prolonged stress, the body’s adrenal glands will shift into a ‘flight or fight’ mode, becoming exhausted and produce aldosterone that affects the salt (sodium) levels in the body. The body attempts to equalise this and the physical symptom becomes a salt craving. The spiritual link is often a resistance to what is needed to be dealt with, with love, flexibility and trust.

Fatty foods:
The liver is the seat of fatty acid assimilation in the body. Spiritually linked to the 3rd chakra and personal power, one may need to find the root cause of old hurts, anger and self-worth.

Can any of us say we have not experienced a food craving at one stage of our life, and can we truly understand the reason behind them?
Could cravings be an expression of the body’s needs? Absolutely!
Makes you think doesn’t it!

“Demystifying Hypnosis”

hypnosis pic for demystiying article“DEMYSTIFYING HYPNOSIS AND HYPNOTHERAPY”

For generations the word “Hypnosis” seems to conjure up a feeling of “strange and mysterious” in most people. But in truth, everyone, no matter whom or where they are in the world will have experienced a hypnotic state, thousands of times in their life!
Hypnosis is a natural state of awareness for all humans and animals. Most people can relate to driving to a certain place and wondering “how did I get there” – one could liken this experience to being on “auto pilot” and the destination is reached – our very own built in GPS! Other examples are simply reading a book, watching T.V., or merely daydreaming, where a natural state of awareness commonly known as hypnosis is entered into.
Everything anyone has learnt is stored in the subconscious mind, and when these memories are required, they are brought up from the subconscious mind and utilized in everyday life, as is experienced from learning the skill of driving. Once the skill is learnt – the conscious mind (thinking mind) can “rest” and the natural awareness state (hypnosis) can be entered into, yet at any point the awareness of the conscious mind (thinking mind) can become active if need be, e.g. needing to use the breaks in the car.
So, one would ask, why does hypnosis per say need “demystifying?”
One major factor, which hinders people from using hypnosis as a treatment, – is the fear of being “out of control, or controlled” when in hypnosis. In order to “demystify” hypnotherapy, it is essential to look at the misconceptions of hypnosis which have grown over the years.

1. Hypnosis is due to the power of the therapist?

A therapist does not have any “magical” formula which takes control of the client, the use of specific communication skills are the basis of the therapy. If a client allows a therapist to guide them through an experience, who is in control? – The client.

2. Can one become “stuck” in hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of focused attention and is controlled by the client, who can at any stage of the session, merely open their eyes and become fully alert. Hypnosis relaxes the conscious mind (thinking mind), allowing the “why” part of the brain to step aside. No amount of hypnotic techniques used will allow a person to do anything that is not in line with their belief patterns, upbringing or cultural morals.

3. Can hypnosis cause one to become unconsciousness?

Hypnosis cannot cause a person to become unconscious. Due to the relaxed state one feels during hypnosis, some may constitute this as an unconscious state, the physical body will relax and breathing will slow down etc, but the mental state of a person becomes highly aware and alert, and a person can become physically alert at any given point in time during the session, as they are in control of their body and mind.

4. Can one become dependent on hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a therapeutic tool, and is therefore in no way addictive in any way or form. It is a form of communication and language skills which aid the person to use their experiences in order to reach their goals and potential in life.

5. In order to be successfully hypnotized – one needs to be fully relaxed?

Hypnosis is a state of natural awareness of concentrated focus. Thus physical relaxation is not necessary for a hypnotic state to be reached, and hypnosis is used to aid people who have undergone trauma which is locked into the physical body. This type of hypnosis is mainly used in conjunction with Regression Therapy, where the client’s body movements (called repressed cellular memory release) are focused upon in order to access and release a specific trauma in their lives.

Hypnosis can be and is currently being used as a tool in the treatment of many human conditions in which a person’s mind, in conjunction with a learnt experience is a factor. e.g. Medical and Dental hypnosis – aids in pain management, and stress disorders. Forensic Science Hypnosis – aids traumatized victims in information recovery. Hypnosis in education – decrease stress and anxiety for exams, and retain information. Hypnosis in Business – aids people in the business arena, to communicate more effectively. Hypnosis in Sports – aids in physical and mental concentration. Hypnosis in Psychotherapy – aids the clients to draw upon their own subconscious resources in order for them to elicit a positive change within themselves.

In a nut shell – Hypnosis is a tool which facilitates a desired outcome, by using the minds natural awareness, and can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments – to enhance them!

Reflections on Meditation

Have you ever googled “what is meditation?”

You will find as many definitions as there are authors. There’s a kind of consensus that it involves working on the mind and/or consciousness, and that the aim is to improve the quality of consciousness, from “improved clarity” to outright enlightenment at the extreme.

So many colors

The greatest problem with defining a widely used term like “meditation” is that we lack the language structures and words that fits the topic. Spiritual matters just does not have a clearly defined language! Some folk say “I meditate” and what they mean is that they sit outside under a tree and listen to the wind and the birds. Another might focus on the breath, trying to quieten the mind. A third may try to raise energy up their spinal column … or chant a mantra… or may just be floating away on a cloud… You name it meditation, I name it meditation, but are we talking about the same thing at all?

I won’t try to define meditation. Here I just offer up a thought or two that try to improve our understanding of what we are doing.

Firstly, it has very much to do with where you focus your awareness. For the most part in daily life we’re not even aware that we are aware. We just “are”, lost in doing what we’re doing, thinking what we are thinking. When you meditate, you try to stay aware of your awareness, and direct where you focus that awareness.

One of the things I learned from Janet this morning is that you can be passively aware, just sitting there watching your breath and noticing what arrives in your conscious mind, or, you can actively direct your awareness, as when you send out healing energies for example, or to send energy to a friend in need, or to listen to the wind.

Another angle that helps our understanding of meditation is to consider that it can be divided very broadly into two branches: one that works on the mind, and in any number of ways trying to bring stillness and peace to the thought processes that continuously run riot in our heads. Another branch aims to develop subtle bodies and organs, like the third eye. For example, Kundalini yoga aims at developing energy flows in the body and growing a mastery of energy circuits through the body of subtle organs. (That last sentence has the problem of language and definitions again, so I apologize if your understanding differs!).

Ultimately we all just have to find a discipline that works for us. It can take years of trying different things before you arrive at something that resonates with you, but you’ll know it when it does!


” Do You Feel the Worlds Emotions”


“Feel weighed down when in crowds and public places?”

“Emotional around people and places for no reason?”

“finally seeking seclusion to recharge?”

You may be experiencing Empathetic symptoms.

Every living thing on earth has an aura, the soul’s energy, emanates from within our bodies and radiates approximately 1 to 2m from the physical body.  When the aura of one living creature, plant, animal or human, touches the outskirts of another, energy will flow between the respective auras. Emotional imprints between the auras will flow and can be felt by both simultaneously.

Pain, sadness, joy, anger, frustration etc can be transmitted making the recipients confused about which emotions are theirs and which belong to others. People who experience this are called Empaths.

It is necessary for people, especially children, who are affected in this way to learn to protect their energy fields to diminish the fatigue and detrimental aspects it can have on their bodies.

For this reason energy management is a necessary part of life and should be taught as part of a daily routine.

Try it; it will change your life!
