Going beyond disease with humour

Humour is one those capacities that are integral to going beyond disease. I have spoken with many people who have gone beyond disease and they all have a keen sense of humour. Often it is the willingness to to laugh at themselves. One of the reasons why humour works so well is that it designificantizes the gravity of the situation.

When the body laughs it actually shakes loose the solidity of disease. When we go into depression or tears and the significance of the disease it tends to create more of that. If you are wanting to make it easier for you to go beyond you may like to watch some funny movies or read a few good jokes. What if you were willing to see the funny side of everything? What if you were to ask whats funny about this I am not getting?

I stopped living

 

Living?

Okay so you have cancer, or diabetes, or ME, or colitis or… Does that mean you have to stop living? We could pussy foot around or we can get to the bones of it and start the change now. if you wanna pussy foot around please don’t read this article, it is not for you and will not contribute to you. If you are at that point where you have made a demand that this is going to change and that you are willing to to do what ever it takes, them buckle your seat belt I am going to ask you a question that you are not expecting.

“When did decided that you didn’t want to live any more?” Was it when you lost your leg? Was it when your spouse walked out on you. Was your business your life? Did your son or daughter die before you?

Now before you read on just be aware of the energy that brought up.  Are you angry, are you pissed off, are you depressed by that question? Or are going “OMG” right now. Either way it does not matter. What I would like you to perceive  is that energy.

When we have  a disease the one thing we rarely question is the energy.

It is that old resistance or agreement thing, either way if you resist or agree with something you create more of that reality, in this case disease.

Ask that question of your self again “When did you decided you didn’t want to live any more?” Now take take that decision, or the energy of it, find a toilet and flush it! Now before you even finish reading.

Cool, that is a lot lighter. Now look at the things that you used to do that were fun for you before you made that decision. May be it was fishing with your son, but your son is no longer around, or may be it was going to the movies with your wife but she left you. When you stop doing the things you love beacuse that person or thing is no longer there that is when you stop living.

So, your task is now to find some things that you like to do. Ask your body “Body what would be fun for you?” and then see what starts to come up over the next few days.

I would truly love to here from you.

Health and Wellness

Health and Wellness, wellness and health. Say it 10 times, as quickly as you can.

Are smiling right now? When did health and wellness become so serious? What if health and wellness was actually a by product of joy?

I remember my Mum saying to me “If you have your health, you have everything.” I bought that and when I got sick I thought my life was over. I thought I had done some thing incredibly wrong.

What ever health or wellness means to is going to lock you up. So what do they mean to you? Write it down and then destroy all the meanings, all the decisions all the justification and all the judgements.

There is that a little lighter now?

3 Things You Can Do To Change Inflammatory Bowel Disease

There is plenty of information out there about IBD, the causes, the theories; medical, alternative, wives tales, miracle cures, diets, in fact every body seems to have their own take on it.

If you have Irritable Bowel, or Crohns or colitis you have probably looked at many of these. Some things work for and not others, some work for others not you.

Gets very confusing doesn’t it? One minute you think you have found the answer and then whack you are off to the toilet again for seemingly no apparent reason. You are following the diet, you are using the meds, you are reducing stress, you are doing all the right things, but all of a sudden … well you know what.

So lets look at the energy of people with IBD, there are a few simple things that can be done that can create a deal more ease for you and your body. Things that you can add to what ever you are already doing.

Firstly, how often when a flare occurs do actually beat yourself up for doing something wrong? What is that going to create? A fun filled day or just more angst? Give that birch branch up and stop making your self wrong, that is unless you enjoy it.

Secondly, your point of view creates your reality so be aware of what you are a saying and thinking. This works in brilliantly with the first point. If you think or say “I feel like shit,” then guess who is listening to you? Yep your right, your body hears and feels “shit” and hey presto guess what happens. Well you don’t have to guess because you know!

Thirdly, have any of you ever had a thought like “that car is going to pull out inf ront of me” or “the phone will ring” and it does. Believe it or not that is not a wrongness, that is an awareness of a possible future. Has any body ever acknowledged you as an aware being or is everybody trying to tell you what to do and how to do it and you should do their way? It can get very irritating. Funny that, since IBD is an  irritation or inflammation of the digestive tract.

May be you could ask the question “who is irritating me?” May be you’ll get answer, maybe it is you, may you won’t get answer. It doesn’t matter. What does matter is that you get to be more aware of how you and hence your body is functioning.

To sum, stop judging you or body as wrong, be aware that your thoughts, feelings and the words you use create your body and your reality, ask questions and always acknowledge when you are aware.

Vulnerability

There is an old Chinese proverb “He who asks a question appears as a fool for five minutes, he who never asks a question is a fool for life.”

Many people have thanked me for being willing to ask questions in classes where I have been a participant. I always “felt” a bit stupid for asking, so was quite surprised when this first started to occur. Over the years I have recognized that they were thanking me because I was willing to appear as a fool for a few minutes in order to get the change I desired and willing to ask those questions that others could not put words to. This is vulnerability. This where, no matter what it takes, you are willing to appear foolish, you are willing to receive the judgements of everybody else to get the change that you desire.

I am so blessed that so many people have been willing to step in to that space of vulnerability and be wiling to ask questions in classes and on broadcasts. In the asking those people are actually willing to receive an awareness of where they are sticking themselves and their body’s and then they have more possibilities from which to choose. Possibilities that prior to the question were not freely available.

Ask and you shall receive is one of the laws of the universe. Imagine that! All you have to do is ask a question and more possibilities start to show up. Now it is up to you what you choose. Some may choose more sickness, some choose management, some may choose to die, others may choose cure, and others may choose to a totally different reality.

No one choice is greater than the other, no choice is wrong. No choice is wright. Imagine if you were never wrong.

Take for example the lady on my recent radio show “Curing the Incurable” with Dr Pat. On National radio she was willing to talk about the guilt that was hounding her and asking how she could change this. After a few questions we were able to run a few processes with her and she immediately started to feel lighter about her life. You can list to the replay HERE.

Does that mean that to make the change you have to call in a news crew from the ABC. No, what I am suggesting here is that there is a power and a potency in vulnerability that when combined with question will allow you to have a different possibility. You can start asking questions right away you don’t need an audience, the whole universe is waiting to receive you if you are wiling to be vulnerable.

Science proves your point of view creates your reality

I was watching an investigative TV show on SBS about ‘e’ numbers. It was really cool, that actually did it without judgement, just presenting the facts. ‘e’ numbers are the chemicals that are used to add colour, taste, or to preserve our foods. This show was about the e numbers that are used to colour foods. They did a neat experiment, would you like to read about it?

Then read on Macduff…

They took a bottle of white wine and add food colour to make it appear as if it was red wine and then they took that wine to a wine tasting society that had both armature and professional tasters. There were about a dozen members, every one of those wine tasters described all the attributes of a red wine. One even stated that that they are actually trained to look at the colour first and foremost. The result: If you have a already decided what something is then you will not be able to perceive anything that does not match that judgement.

If you have already decided that you have arthritis then what will your body hear? What will you physically actualize in your body?

Your point of view creates your reality, what if you were to just change your point of view? Like changing a comptuer program. Every week I get updates for my programs on my computer. What if you did the same with your points of view? Destroy the old programs and upgrade to a new point of that will allow you to perceive something different.

If you would like to watch the experiment you can do so HERE.

3 more elements of healing

Peace, calm and kindness…

LET’S PLAY WITH KINDNESS…

How often are yoU kind to yourself? How often are you kind to your body? Or perhaps I should ask how often are you unkind to your body? How often do you push your body, make it work harder, tell it what you think it needs, shove other peoples points of view in to your body? Just about everyday. Everyday we are unkind to our body’s, if you treated your lover or best friend the way you treated your body would they stick around for long? No way, it would be ‘astavalista’ baby.

When was the last time you were kind to you body? Can you remember that? Maybe it was a million years ago, it doesn’t matter, If you can at least remember one time you know what the energy of kindness is. Expand that memory of the energy of kindness, multiple that by ten, now a hundred, now a thousand and now bigger than the universe.

Ahhhhhhhhh! That’s your body saying thank you. If you would like to create more of that energy then do one kind thing for your body evreyday for the next ten days. Write this down on a post it “Just for today I am going to be kind with my body” and stick on your allarm clock or bathroom mirror or anywhere you will see it every day and then for a few minutes a day be kind with your body.

I would love to hear how you go!

The second element is trust

Most people when I show them how to talk with their body ask me how they can trust it. Most of the time you can totally trust your body. I mean let’s face it if you are standing in the middle of a busy road it is going to get you out of harms way, if you stop and try to think your way out of the road or grab a pack of tarot cards you will end up as a hood ornament. It’s not a question of trusting your body, it is really about trusting yourself.

Most people don’t trust themselves. They have not been taught to trust their own knowing but have been swayed by society to place their trust in thoughts. How often have you been to a reader and  been told the answer rather than been empowered to trust YOU?  How often  have you already decided  how you  would like things to show up. Most people lie to themselves to get it the way they want it to be. if you have something that won’t change then instead of trying to do the same things over and over again and fix it, you may have to change what it is you are doing.

Doubt and judgement are lies that stop you from trusting you.This is great to know because if a doubt starts to come in to your head you know it is a lie immediately, a trap ready to keep you in your suffering.

So in a nutshell; you know when you are lying to yourself when their is doubt,when there are reasons and justifications and when it just feels plain heavy.

Once you start trusting you then you can start to receive everything, rather than coming to conclusion.

The trust card often comes up when people are either lacking this element about themselves or when they think someone maybe tell them porky pies (lies) and hence they don’t trust them. But really it always comes down to your knowing. When you honour your knowing you will always trust you, and if you make a mistake then you can just choose again.

How can it get any better than that?

Fifth element of healing is Gratitude

Gratitude is a beingness, it goes beyond human emotion. It is very expansive and when you are truly grateful you can not be in judgement. Gratitude does not require a reason or justification. Gratitude is being in total allowance of the beings in your life, that could be you, your body, another person, the planet, even a disease.

Once you have a moment of gratitude you can tap in to that energy over and over again. it is not some thing that can be taken from you, however you can choose not to be grateful. When you do this you are choosing unconsciousness, you are choosing judgement. This can often create pain and suffering in your life and in your body.

One of the things in becoming more aware is that you get to be aware of everything. You don’t get to say ‘I don’t want that awareness because…’, that is a judgement. This is where gratitude comes in to it’s own, you can be in total allowance of where you are, at the pain of the body, the suffering of others and still be grateful for being aware of all that.

Most people when asked what they are grateful for will give you a list of positive things, this is okay and is a good start, this still indicates that there can be a judgement holding that in place. A judgement that negative things are bad and positive things are good. Once you can be in gratitude for everything you will find that you have less and less judgements both of the negative and positive kinds. In choosing gratitude you can start to create more and more space for your body to activate the healing processes.

What tools can you use to invite gratitude in to your life? Who does this belong to ? And interesting point of view are 2 amazing techniques that you can use to open up to gratitude.

What else is possible?

First element of healing intimacy – honor

Intimacy is a term often used to describe the relationship between people. Usually it is mutually exclusive, that is most people have the point of view that one can only be intimate with a limited number of people. If you the being did not have this point of you may be able to perceive where your body is actually energetically intimate with just about every body around it. Bodies are in constant communication you just misidentify some of this a disease or pain.

It is funny because though most people have the point of view that they can only be intimate with a few people they never have an intimate relationship with their body. Most people will judge their bodies to kingdom come, either it is right or it is wrong, and if the body talks to you with pain or disease we shut it up with drugs or complain about it.

Is there any honor in that? Honoring your body is not judging it and creating it as separate from you, it is including it in your life. Asking your body questions about body things is honoring it. Giving it time each day to be with out you pushing it or abusing it with judgement is honoring it. Listening to it and caring for it is creating more space to be vulnerable with it. The more you honor your body the more gentle it will be with you.

Treating your body like a sack of potatoes is not honoring. Throwing it around, lugging it about, not listening is dishonorable.

Please do one thing a day to honor your body, a simple acknowledgement of what it has to put up with from you would be a start, and then you could thank it would be another and then caressing it would be another and not stuffing it with other peoples opinions would be yet another.

But don’t do any of that, it may start to create the intimacy of healing and hell you wouldn’t wan to do that, would you?

What are the 5 elements of healing?

The five elements of healing intimacy are;

  • HONOR
  • TRUST
  • VULNERABILITY
  • ALLOWANCE
  • GRATITUDE

Over the next 5 blogs we will explore each element in more depth, in the mean time I can tell you this; no one element is any greater than the other and none are seperate. They are all linked to gether like the rings in the olympic logo.

 

One of the greatest enemies to healing is judgement. If we liken the elements  all working together to create superman with a great body, and lots of abilities, then judgement is like Kryptonite. The more you judge your body, the dis-ease it is in, the more crippling the effect.

The funny thing is most people want to get rid of negative judgements and hold on to their positive ones. Ouch, judgement is judgement, kryptonite painted yellow is still kryptonite. If you are in dis-ease I can guarantee their is judgement or piece of kryptonite some where near by.

When you use the 5 elements of honor, trust, vulnerability, allowance and gratitude, then the kryptonite doesn’t stand a chance. Oh and if you beat your self up because you just spotted your self judging then you have just judged you again.

Please be gentle on your self, on your body…
