Your Best Interests at Heart

by Jen Taylor.

What is it that bothers you?  A problem or issue that could really be worthy of attention.  Something which feels annoying or is even more compelling and having a destructive effect on your health or relationships?  Perhaps it comes as a quiet whisper or a deeper nagging feeling?  Have you been tucking it away, seeing if it could magically disappear?  Hoping that tomorrow will be the day and yet, as each day evolves, the problem and the discomfort is still there.

Facing your story & the feelings can take some courage and create a place of very real vulnerability.  A place that could be a challenge to be in, or not, as it may not actually even feel as bad as your mind or inner critic makes it out to be.  Once you’ve laid the issue on the table and spoken of it, the weight is off your shoulders and the energy is in motion for change.  Is it something that is just for you personally to address, or maybe it involves communication and negotiating with another?

The problem may require the assistance of a Life Coach or Counsellor, where choosing a person you can feel safe with, is paramount.  Where you can be in a confidential, non-judgemental space with, somebody who will listen and acknowledge, who will truly have your very best interests at heart.



Often having a neutral person as a sounding board is a great way to lift tension from the physical body, a place to look at the truth and inspire some clarity and direction, when you can stop running and the issues are dealt with.  It also assists the body to come to homeostasis (the body’s own innate balance of healing), as carrying emotions and problems not addressed takes their toll, manifesting more as pain and dis-ease.  Yet in homeostasis dis-ease is preventable and in many instances reversible.

This time of year brings a great opportunity to pay attention to the physical symptoms and it is a truly wonderful time to look and listen, to nourish the blossoming of the new within you.  It could be a time to take a moment to stop running, breathe in the divine scents of new growth and fresh air, allowing your issues to be heard.  With forgiveness, love of self and another, there brings a hope for new ways.  I invite you to try it on, allow your inner voice and any problem to be heard, you and your amazing body deserve it!

Stop Running & Do Some [...]

By Reinette Nel.

So, you are driving along in your car, when suddenly you hear a clickety-clack noise.  Or maybe that noise has been there for a while, but today, because it’s cold, it’s a bit louder and more insistent.  What do you do?

Do you ignore it or do you decide that it’s time you ask a mechanic to look at it?  Maybe he can tell you not to worry, or maybe your car just needs oil and he can quickly do it for you?  What will happen if you keep ignoring it and keep on driving, day after day, after day?  Of course it will break down and we both know it will most likely happen at the most inconvenient time.  The day you have your interview for that job that you really, really want!  Or maybe even on your wedding day or Year 12 exam!  No, you know it’s best to let someone have a look and fix it now, rather than wait and then you have to fork out even more money and you might be without a car for a week or two.

The Health of the World

by Dr Jenna

In June I was able to attend an International Integrated Medical Conference in Germany, it was an amazing conference and I felt very inspired by what was shared. There were practitioners form all over the world and all types of modalities. We had presentations from the UN, PAHO (Pan American Health Organization) and the European Union to name a few. Countries presented how they were working to bring integrative health into their health systems. There were great success stories from Brazil, Germany, Switzerland and even Britain and there were only a few of us from New Zealand and Australia, I was able to present a post about how The Healing Rooms integrates health care.

Winter

By Marianne Kornaat.

Bears in winter go into a cave to hibernate but for us in Australia we don’t do quite the same. According to Chinese medicine, winter is a time of hibernation even if it may be in a different sense of not entering a cave but being more aware of stillness and quiet time. The Chinese say in winter one must go early to bed and rise up late - it makes sense - in winter it’s cold and dark so who really wants to get up in the morning?
