How is The RippleFX Resilience Technique Revolutionizing Healing in the 21st Century?

The RippleFX Resilience Technique (RRT) is for anyone who wants to create self- change about the energetic impact of beliefs. It is a psychoenergetic process and a philosophical approach to life, based upon Universal Principles.

These Universal Principles are: we are Quantum Beings; we are Eternal; we are Innately Whole; and we create every aspect of our own lives.

This psychoenergetic process reconnects us to the knowledge of what and who we are. From the RRT perspective, everything in our world is a reflection upon how we see ourselves. As Quantum Beings, we are creators of our world, created from the beliefs which operate within our subconscious mind. We create from two places: from our innate wholeness, which is our spiritual/energetic/quantum core of wisdom and love; and from our fears, which represent self-limiting beliefs which do not serve us in living full and vibrant lives.

The Origin of Fear and Self Doubt

Self-doubt is created when we make the choice to separate from our Authentic Self by suppressing or rejecting our emotions. Doubt is created when we deny the Truth of our personal experience.

RRT requires embracing or taking ownership of all parts of Self. As a result, we reconnect with our wholeness and create solely from our joy. We begin to feel and see the power and abilities we embody. We become aware of our "Quantum-ness", our connection to all things and the power we have to influence our world.

RRT focuses on the Wholeness and the Oneness factor (i.e. we are all connected). Also, the focus is on the solution to issues―rather than on what appears to be missing.

The Power of Creativity Requires a Shift in Consciousness

We must step outside the confines of the physical world system in order to consciously create our life and work in the context of the greater expression of who we are! Our playing small does not serve the evolution of this planet our solar system our creator or our individual selves. If you are still caught in the drama of your existences which you experience through your five senses and you believe this reality to be true and that nothing else exists beyond your current state of being in this moment sigh! And Breathe!............ Then my question to you is what are you going to do to change your limited viewpoint of your existence and your experiences so that you can express and become more of yourself outside the confines of this limited reality?

What are the Benefits of Transformational Facilitation?

In Transformational facilitation, people learn tangible skills to clear negative beliefs, patterns and emotions so that they can live fully present in the here and now while becoming empowered to create rich, satisfying lives. Some of these practices include mindfulness training; both internal (somatics) and external, paying attention to how we are languaging our world through conscious languaging and inquiry as well as journalling, and other creative processes which help train the brain to develop new patterns of thinking.

I work with people who hunger for deeper levels of fulfillment; people who want to deepen their connection to themselves and others, people who are committed to living in alignment with their heart, values, gifts and dreams. The people I facilitate have a strong desire and willingness to dig deep within to determine what it takes to make that happen. My job, as facilitator, is to help people see themselves- their lives, values, gifts, dreams, desires and even their "stories" more fully so they can transform old tales into new beginnings. Being "the best they can be" is a byproduct of balancing the inner and outer aspects of being, having and doing.

Many people who come to me come because they want more out of lives and of themselves. They know they need to remove the inner barriers, cultivate deeper awareness and move into their highest knowing although they may not know how to do this.

My clients know the benefits of a relationship that holds them accountable to the standards they set for themselves. They are committed to change that engenders sustainability. They know that for this to happen, shifts need to occur in how they think, act, and feel in order to bring them into alignment with who they really are, at the core of their being.

In our facilitation sessions we look at how your life is currently structured and determine what areas of your life you would like to have more fulfillment. We recognize that each person is already whole, capable and resourceful and utilize a process of inquiry to access the highest truth. We design personal practices that increase awareness of patterns and help to establish new practices. When approaching life from this perspective, people are able to gain greater access to their greatness and what they are truly capable of.

Transformational facilitation integrates traditional coaching concepts with spiritual practices, advanced technologies, and creative expression. The combination of these techniques helps facilitate transformation at the deepest levels while providing people with the support needed to live fully balanced and purposeful lives.

What is Spiritual Ascension?

Ascension is ultimately a physical process that this universe, and by this universe I mean the physical matter in this universe, undergoes.

Ascension is a sort of "change of state" or phase transition akin to what happens when ice melts to water.

Ascension is a fundamental shift in the material composition of the physical universe that allows Spirit incarnated in the physical body (that would be you and me) to more efficiently and effectively create this physical universe.

Ascension is occurring right now and is being led by an energetic interplay of life on this planet.

Ascension will lead, all other things being equal, to an increase in your ability to "manifest." This manifestation, or "co-creation" as some call it, will be guided by the principle as above , so below . That is, the ideas in your head, whether you are conscious or not, will manifest in the world around you.

Why Can't Peace and Joy Be Experienced Through the Ego Self?

Love, peace and joy are states of being and therefore cannot be experienced through the ego-self. The ego depends on duality to make it's existence real and does this by using emotion to contrast feelings.

With love, peace and joy no contrast is possible.

They are the conditions of our natural state of being, only accessible when thought is suspended and our experience becomes explicably merged in oneness.

These moments of grace are doorways to reclaiming our inheritance of infinite joy within the realm of time and space.

Why Do We Live in a Culture of Shame Built on the Foundation of Perfectionism?

We live in a culture built on shame and guilt because our media and advertising have commoditized perfectionism.

Shame is best understood as a social-cultural construct and can be felt when an outside or internal trigger activates an intense painful feeling or experience of believing we are flawed and therefore unworthy of acceptance and belonging creating feelings of fear, blame, and disconnection from relationships.

Shame is organized by gender. The messages and expectations that trigger and
fuel shame for women are based on our rigid cultural definitions of women and
women’s roles. Likewise, the expectations that fuel shame for men are based on
our culture’s perception of masculinity what a man should be like, look like,and act like.

The opposite of experiencing shame is experiencing shame resilience.
The quality that increases our resilience is empathy and when we are practicing courage, compassion, and connection. Our relationships are filled with empathy and we co- create a more loving and authentic culture.


What is The RippleFX Life Energy System?

The RippleFX Life Energy is that system consists of four modules and is an easy to follow, step-by-step guide to discovering your most passionate, interesting and true self and it comes with a bonus I will work with you every step of the way to support you through the process.

The RippleFX Life Energy System helps you determine:

What's really going on in the world right now?
What's important to you?
What's your true purpose in life?
What are you really meant to be doing while your here?
what do you truly value?
What's blocking you from achieving your dreams and desires for work and life?

Then the System shows you how to create your personal life manual that is unique to you, along with a plan of action that is in alignment with your values to achieve your goals in work and life beyond what you could have ever imagined for yourself.

We can all agree that our current physical world system is in an intense phase of transition and transformation. You may be asking yourself. How do I face a future of uncertainty? What tools and resources do I have to support me during these times?

We all must come to the understanding that we are all moving together into a new state of being. This new state of being requires therefore that we physically, mentally and emotionally let go of 3rd dimensional concepts. Just as in death, the letting go is a major part of the change process, for one cannot take the old values and way of being into a new completely different afterlife. So the progression through changes compels us to let go of current relationships, jobs, careers, homes, possessions, and so on, if they are unable to support our new way of being.

Is it any wonder therefore, that there is a great deal of anxiety and fear being felt in our physical world system because these changes are already in progress, even though most people are not conscious of it. Also, the changes to our physiological makeup are currently speeding up and there are many temporary physical symptoms that are occurring in our bodies as a consequence of this.

Life is accelerating and we are becoming acutely sensitive to the information that's encoded in energy. We need methods for translating this invisible guidance. This is a dramatic time—when many of us are “frequency-sorting,” deciding who we want to be, who we want as friends and colleagues, and what we want our life to feel like. We're letting go of old, ineffective habits and toxic people. We’re chafing at any reality that’s too limiting.

Now regardless of what is going on outside of us on the external I believe we are all born with the potential to navigate effectively through this transitional period.

That is why I have developed the RippleFX Life Energy System a step by step process that allows you to develop your own personal reference manual to help you navigate and live your life purpose.

With the creation of your operating manual in hand it will allow you to tap into your potential and live life to its fullest, with integrity, focus and self-determination. By going through this process you will discover a sense of purpose, inner strength and freedom you never imagined possible. You’ll become more aware of where you are going and how to get there. Life will cease to be something that just happens to you as you sit back passively. Instead, you will learn to be the pilot of your own plane, fly your own flight plan and take flight.

Now at this point I know this may sound beyond your reach, but I encourage you to tell yourself, as I always do when I’m faced with a challenge, “I am in the process of manifesting all that I desire.” You’ll be amazed at how well this works. If you say it enough, you’ll begin to believe it.
RippleFX Life Energy System Manual

Life inevitably comes with challenges. More demands and less time can really move us off course... and sometimes, we need a system to keep track of what it is we truly value, what we actually want, and where we're headed.

This process is so powerful that I work with people all over the world through weekly tele conference calls in fact we develop a program that suites your needs and requirement based on our 4 month program for individuals or our 6 month program for business owners.

What is the Link Between Stress and the "Fight or Flight Response?"

This fundamental physiologic response forms the foundation of modern day stress medicine. The "fight or flight response" is our body's primitive, automatic, inborn response that prepares the body to "fight" or "flee" from perceived attack, harm or threat to our survival.

What happens to us when we are under excessive stress?

When we experience excessive stress—whether from internal worry or external circumstance—a bodily reaction is triggered, called the "fight or flight" response. Originally discovered by the great Harvard physiologist Walter Cannon, this response is hard-wired into our brains and represents a genetic wisdom designed to protect us from bodily harm. This response actually corresponds to an area of our brain called the hypothalamus, which—when stimulated—initiates a sequence of nerve cell firing and chemical release that prepares our body for running or fighting.

What are the signs that our fight or flight response has been stimulated (activated)?

When our fight or flight response is activated, sequences of nerve cell firing occur and chemicals like adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol are released into our bloodstream. These patterns of nerve cell firing and chemical release cause our body to undergo a series of very dramatic changes. Our respiratory rate increases. Blood is shunted away from our digestive tract and directed into our muscles and limbs, which require extra energy and fuel for running and fighting. Our pupils dilate. Our awareness intensifies. Our sight sharpens. Our impulses quicken. Our perception of pain diminishes. Our immune system mobilizes with increased activation. We become prepared—physically and psychologically—for fight or flight. We scan and search our environment, "looking for the enemy."

When our fight or flight system is activated, we tend to perceive everything in our environment as a possible threat to our survival. By its very nature, the fight or flight system bypasses our rational mind—where our more well thought out beliefs exist—and moves us into "attack" mode. This state of alert causes us to perceive almost everything in our world as a possible threat to our survival. As such, we tend to see everyone and everything as a possible enemy. Like airport security during a terrorist threat, we are on the look out for every possible danger. We may overreact to the slightest comment. Our fear is exaggerated. Our thinking is distorted. We see everything through the filter of possible danger. We narrow our focus to those things that can harm us. Fear becomes the lens through which we see the world.

We can begin to see how it is almost impossible to cultivate positive attitudes and beliefs when we are stuck in survival mode. Our heart is not open. Our rational mind is disengaged. Our consciousness is focused on fear, not love. Making clear choices and recognizing the consequences of those choices is unfeasible. We are focused on short-term survival, not the long-term consequences of our beliefs and choices. When we are overwhelmed with excessive stress, our life becomes a series of short-term emergencies. We lose the ability to relax and enjoy the moment. We live from crisis to crisis, with no relief in sight. Burnout is inevitable. This burnout is what usually provides the motivation to change our lives for the better. We are propelled to step back and look at the big picture of our lives—forcing us to examine our beliefs, our values and our goals.

What is our fight or flight system designed to protect us from?

Our fight or flight response is designed to protect us from the proverbial saber tooth tigers that once lurked in the woods and fields around us, threatening our physical survival. At times when our actual physical survival is threatened, there is no greater response to have on our side. When activated, the fight or flight response causes a surge of adrenaline and other stress hormones to pump through our body. This surge is the force responsible for mothers lifting cars off their trapped children and for firemen heroically running into blazing houses to save endangered victims. The surge of adrenaline imbues us with heroism and courage at times when we are called upon to protect and defend the lives and values we cherish.

What are the saber tooth tigers of today and why are they so dangerous?

When we face very real dangers to our physical survival, the fight or flight response is invaluable. Today, however, most of the saber tooth tigers we encounter are not a threat to our physical survival. Today’s saber tooth tigers consist of rush hour traffic, missing a deadline, bouncing a check or having an argument with our boss or spouse. Nonetheless, these modern day, saber tooth tigers trigger the activation of our fight or flight system as if our physical survival was threatened. On a daily basis, toxic stress hormones flow into our bodies for events that pose no real threat to our physical survival.

Once it has been triggered, what is the natural conclusion of our fight or flight response?

By its very design, the fight or flight response leads us to fight or to flee—both creating immense amounts of muscle movement and physical exertion. This physical activity effectively metabolizes the stress hormones released as a result of the activation of our fight or flight response. Once the fighting is over, and the threat—which triggered the response—has been eliminated, our body and mind return to a state of calm.

Has the fight or flight response become counterproductive?

In most cases today, once our fight or flight response is activated, we cannot flee. We cannot fight. We cannot physically run from our perceived threats. When we are faced with modern day, saber tooth tigers, we have to sit in our office and "control ourselves." We have to sit in traffic and "deal with it." We have to wait until the bank opens to "handle" the bounced check. In short, many of the major stresses today trigger the full activation of our fight or flight response, causing us to become aggressive, hypervigilant and over-reactive. This aggressiveness, over-reactivity and hypervigilance cause us to act or respond in ways that are actually counter-productive to our survival. Consider road rage in Los Angeles and other major cities.

It is counterproductive to punch out the boss (the fight response) when s/he activates our fight or flight response. (Even though it might bring temporary relief to our tension!) It is counterproductive to run away from the boss (the flight response) when s/he activates our fight or flight response. This all leads to a difficult situation in which our automatic, predictable and unconscious fight or flight response causes behavior that can actually be self-defeating and work against our emotional, psychological and spiritual survival.

Is there a cumulative danger from over-activation of our fight or flight response?

Yes. The evidence is overwhelming that there is a cumulative buildup of stress hormones. If not properly metabolized over time, excessive stress can lead to disorders of our autonomic nervous system (causing headache, irritable bowel syndrome, high blood pressure and the like) and disorders of our hormonal and immune systems (creating susceptibility to infection, chronic fatigue, depression, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and allergies.)

To protect ourselves today, we must consciously pay attention to the signals of fight or flight

To protect ourselves in a world of psychological—rather than physical—danger, we must consciously pay attention to unique signals telling us whether we are actually in fight or flight. Some of us may experience these signals as physical symptoms like tension in our muscles, headache, upset stomach, racing heartbeat, deep sighing or shallow breathing. Others may experience them as emotional or psychological symptoms such as anxiety, poor concentration, depression, hopelessness, frustration, anger, sadness or fear.

Excess stress does not always show up as the "feeling" of being stressed. Many stresses go directly into our physical body and may only be recognized by the physical symptoms we manifest. Two excellent examples of stress induced conditions are "eye twitching" and "teeth-grinding." Conversely, we may "feel" lots of emotional stress in our emotional body and have very few physical symptoms or signs in our body.

By recognizing the symptoms and signs of being in fight or flight, we can begin to take steps to handle the stress overload. There are benefits to being in fight or flight—even when the threat is only psychological rather than physical. For example, in times of emotional jeopardy, the fight or flight response can sharpen our mental acuity, thereby helping us deal decisively with issues, moving us to action. But it can also make us hypervigilant and over-reactive during times when a state of calm awareness is more productive. By learning to recognize the signals of fight or flight activation, we can avoid reacting excessively to events and fears that are not life threatening. In so doing, we can play "emotional judo" with our fight or flight response, "using" its energy to help us rather than harm us. We can borrow the beneficial effects (heightened awareness, mental acuity and the ability to tolerate excess pain) in order to change our emotional environment and deal productively with our fears, thoughts and potential dangers.

What can we do to reduce our stress and turn down the activity of our fight or flight response?

The fight or flight response represents a genetically hard-wired early warning system—designed to alert us to external environmental threats that pose a danger to our physical survival. Because survival is the supreme goal, the system is highly sensitive, set to register extremely minute levels of potential danger. As such, the fight or flight response not only warns us of real external danger but also of the mere perception of danger. This understanding gives us two powerful tools for reducing our stress. They are:

1) Changing our external environment (our "reality"). This includes any action we take that helps make the environment we live in safer. Physical safety means getting out of toxic, noisy or hostile environments. Emotional safety means surrounding ourselves with friends and people who genuinely care for us, learning better communication skills, time management skills, getting out of toxic jobs and hurtful relationships. Spiritual safety means creating a life surrounded with a sense of purpose, a relationship with a higher power and a resolve to release deeply held feelings of shame, worthlessness and excessive guilt.

2) Changing our perceptions of reality. This includes any technique whereby we seek to change our mental perspectives, our attitudes, our beliefs and our emotional reactions to the events that happen to us. Changing our perceptions of reality is best illustrated by the proverbial saying, "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Without actually changing our reality, we can altered our perception of reality—viewing the difficulties of life as events that make us stronger and more loving. In the Buddhist tradition, this is referred to as developing a "supple mind."

Physical exercise can also turn down the activity of an overactive fight or flight response

Perhaps the simplest, best way to turn down the activity of our fight or flight response is by physical exercise. Remember that the natural conclusion of fight or flight is vigorous physical activity. When we exercise, we metabolize excessive stress hormones—restoring our body and mind to a calmer, more relaxed state.

For the purpose of stress reduction and counteracting the fight or flight response, any form of activity where we "work up a sweat" for five minutes will effectively metabolize off—and prevent the excessive buildup of—stress hormones. Get down and do 50 pushups, 50 sit-ups, jumping jacks, jump rope, run in place, run up and down the stairs, whatever. By exercising to the point of sweating, we effectively counteract the ill effects of the fight of flight response, drawing it to its natural conclusion.

Sometimes when your upset, you can close the door to your office, do 25 quick pushups, work up a light sweat, and return to work, clearer and calmer. Frequent repetitions of short exercise are easy to fit into our busy schedules. For full cardiovascular fitness, longer periods of exercise do have additional benefits, but for the purpose of stress reduction, mini-exercise sessions are practical, effective and beneficial.

Exercise increases our natural endorphins, which help us to feel better. When we feel good, our thoughts are clearer, our positive beliefs are more accessible and our perceptions are more open. When we feel tired and physically run down, we tend to focus on what’s not working in our lives—similar to a cranky child needing a nap. It is difficult to be, feel or think positive when we are exhausted, sleep deprived or physically out of condition.

What is mind chatter?

If we could read the owners manual for the mind, we would find a full chapter on what is called "mind chatter." Mind chatter is the endless, restless stream of incomplete thoughts, anxieties and self-talk which constantly pulses through our minds. In order to survive, our mind is always "on"—searching for possible threats, dangers, solutions and explanations. This is called our "strategic mind." The strategic mind is always "on"—scanning both our inner and outer world for possible threats to our well-being—either real or imagined. This constant vigilance of the mind not only distracts us with excessive worry but can also trigger the activation of our fight or flight response.

Sometimes, because of the mind’s incessant chatter and worry, we even begin to anticipate dangers or threats that don’t really exist. This is what the soulful and gentle author Joan Borysenko, Ph.D. (Minding The Body, Mending The Mind) refers to as becoming an "advanced worrier." This condition is described brilliantly by Mark Twain who said "I’ve experienced many terrible things in my life, a few of which actually happened." Zig Ziglar, the great motivational speaker, says "Worry is a misuse of the imagination."

Underneath all the mind chatter and fight or flight anxiety lies a quiet place called our "inner voice", the "observer" or the "witness." The "inner voice" is what Walter Cannon, M.D., calls "the wisdom of the body." This quiet place allows us to move beyond our fears, beyond our anxieties and beyond our strategic mind—into a clearer understanding and knowing of what is true and loving. As we will soon discuss, a quiet mind calms our overactive physiology, creating a sequence of physiologic and biochemical changes that improve our physical health.

The simplest, most exquisite way I know of to quiet the mind is by eliciting what is called RippleFX Stillness".

Why is Love Alive Only in The Present Moment?

We live simultaneously in two worlds. We live with our feet planted in one world that is made up of solid and separate objects that appear to exist independently of us. This is a world of duality in which we live informed by secondhand concepts that we take to be real, which are stored in our bodymind as feelings, emotions, thoughts, beliefs, memories, and images.

For instance, we were told a long time ago that we were born, that we have a body, that we are male or female, and that we will die. We have unquestionably accepted the legitimacy of these second-hand beliefs as true, based upon the authoritative testimony of our ancestors, and may never have questioned their validity. But many of us, down through the ages, have questioned the authenticity of these beliefs and have been astonished by what we have uncovered when we have finally experienced ourselves through firsthand knowing.

When we inquire with sincere innocence into the beliefs we hold to be true and respond with total honesty, without depending upon our memory—which is based on secondhand information—we open into the delight, wonder, and astonishment at the answers we come upon to such simple questions as "How old do I really feel? Is my experience really that I have a body? What gender do I really feel myself to be? What is my true name? What is my true face?"

These simple questions can move us beyond our secondhand concepts and the world of duality into experiencing a quite different reality that is not governed by the mind’s past, but by this present moment, which is the realm of the heart. When we live in and from the heart, memory continues to function, but the mind no longer informs our experience. Instead the heart informs the mind.

When we live informed by the heart, we discover that we are living in a parallel universe to the world of duality. Here, we live in a world of nondual loving Presence, in which all objects are realized and perceived to be non-separate projections of our own indivisible nondual Presence. In the world of the heart, we experience the end of striving to become something other than we already are. Here, being is enough. Here, we find the heart’s rest as we live in accepting and welcoming ourselves as we are. It is a relief to finally realize that we don’t have to be different. In the heart’s world, we are always being loved for who we are, not who we "should" be.

In a world of duality, we strive to be more loving, kind, generous, and compassionate. But in the world of the heart, we discover our natural ground of being in which we are love itself. We uncover that our very nature is loving, kind, generous, and compassionate. These are the essential aspects of our being. When we live in the heart we don’t experience separation.

Here, there is only our Self and everyone we see is realized to be "I." And when all we see is our Self, who is there to hurt? Who, then, is there to tell a lie to, to be unkind to? There is only our Self. Living in the heart brings an end to violence and deception. When we live in and from the heart, we live in our essential compassion and love that moves us to help our neighbor, because we see that our neighbor is our Self.

It can be disorienting, at first, when everyone we see is our Self. It can be unsettling to contemplate that our striving to change ourselves is actually taking us away from being happy. Striving keeps us bound to our unhappiness. Striving is always for a future goal that lies forever "out there." When we stop striving and simply are, the mind grows quiet and we come to rest. It is important to note that in being, we do not become lethargic. The heart is divinely willful. Doing continues, but no longer from the attitude of trying to change ourselves. Simply stated, being is enough.

The nature of the mind is to split that which is one into two. This is its inherent tendency. There’s nothing wrong with this. It is just the way the mind functions. Without the mind we would not be able to conceptualize a cup to drink from, visualize a chair to sit in, or experience a separate "other" with which to have an intimate relationship. Our ability to live in the world of mind allows us to function as an individual and manipulate a world of separate objects.

But separation comes with a hefty price tag. Separation and fear co-arise. They are not disparate movements. When we live only from the perspective of being a separate individual, we experience our life filled with suffering, anxiety, and fear. And while we may try all kinds of remedial action, trying to bring an end to suffering, anxiety, and fear without solving the accompanying problem of separation is tantamount to rearranging the furniture on the Titanic. While any change may look good for a while, it provides no lasting resolution to the problem at hand. In order to bring an end to suffering, we must resolve the dilemma of feeling separate.

Our ability to bring an end to suffering depends on our capacity to examine our lives. No external or internal repair ultimately works. Our ability to live in this world of duality, while welcoming its various movements of sensation, feeling, emotion, and thought, provides the gateway we are looking for to enter this other wondrous world of loving Presence where we feel always whole, healed, and healthy.

When we accept ourselves as we are, when we unflinchingly realize that our suffering rises out of feeling alienated and separate from our Self, we become vulnerable, open, and respectful of everything we feel and think and do. We no longer blame others, but see the expectations that are clouding our vision. We no longer judge others for the way we feel, but experience our longing to connect and share intimately with ourselves and with others.

To live our humanness is to experience joy and suffering. To live from our heart is to enter the domain of peace and loving-kindness and the timeless reality of transcendent being. To live our Presence and our humanness are not separate movements. They are one. We must understand that any attempt to rid ourselves of our humanness in order to become enlightened gives rise to suffering. What we fundamentally are is not dependent upon changing circumstances.

However, exploring what does come and go opens us to experiencing our underlying, changeless, heartfelt Presence in which all coming and going arises. Separation heals when our hearts are open to what is. By feeling the places in ourselves we have judged, compassion and loving-kindness naturally arise. Paradox operates at every turn.

Being open to ourselves with deep trust and reverence facilitates healing. While we must be willing to face ourselves by ourselves, community is a vital component in healing into the loving heart. Our wounds are the entry points for love, which takes us beyond separation and suffering. Community facilitates healing by supporting our moving into, rather than away from, our experiences of separation.

In community, as with our Self, we do not analyze or attempt to change. Instead our stories of limitation and separation are welcomed. In welcoming, there is no prescription for being other than we are. And when we are open without expectation, what is welcomed ultimately empties into its underlying nature, which is unbounded, loving Presence—the open, vulnerable heart.

Love will never be found in the past or the future, which is the mind. Love is alive only in this present moment. When we awaken into the heart, we awaken to this present moment—to the now. While altars may be set with many adornments, the true altar is the heart that is tender, vulnerable, open, and welcoming. The heart that is on fire can’t wait. The heart—your heart, my heart—truly craves an intimacy that heals all separation. And it wants it now. The heart knows the truth that it needs to tell in order to open into the precious and loving Presence that we truly are. Why postpone what is inevitable, which is our full opening into the waiting arms of the heart, which is always our nearest.


What is the Relationship between Personality and Illness?

There exists a correlation between one's genetic personality and illnesses, behavioural patterns and weak sites which can be determined by personality traits and characteristics.

At Bigfish Strategies we believe Illness is a psycho-spiritual crisis involving the mind, the body, and the soul, rather than being the result of external factors such as viruses, bacterial infections and environmental contaminants.

The diagnostic process in treating illness is now taking into consideration hidden contributors such as personality, thoughts, emotions, attitudes, and beliefs. Allowing us to look at the direct connection between how the mental body affects the physical body.

People are now being educated on what they can do to improve their health, reverse the aging process, manage stress, and eliminate chronic illnesses. This will allow treatment, to be about illness prevention, rather than being crisis intervention treating symptoms and relieving pain and discomfort Instead.

Now lets look at healing and curing as they are not the same in either approach nor in outcome. Curing seeks to fix the body and restore it back to where it was before it became ill. Healing seeks to make it better than it was before it became ill by removing the obstacles preventing the mind, the body, and the soul from creating good health.

Living a lifestyle conducive to good health, is a process of making healthy choices, engaging in healthy relationships, and doing something each day to give the soul what it needs, which is to grow personally and evolve spiritually. When we approach health this way we see health as being a process rather than focus on results.

It was Edgar Cayce who said, "Healing of the physical without the change in the mental and spiritual aspects brings little real help to the individual in the end. This is because the mind and the body imprint and imitate each other. What we think, we become. What we become, we think. It's an insidious process that can predispose us to illness or it can lead us to health.

If healing is your choice, then you have the power to heal yourself - The physical body is designed for self-healing. It comes equipped with a defence system that will ward off the external and internal contributors to illness. It's designed for self-regeneration by creating new healthy cells daily. It's designed to repair and revitalize itself. All you have to do is stay out of it's way by not creating obstacles and preventing it from doing its job.

Remember only you can heal yourself. No one else can - Healing is a personal journey of self-discovery and personal development. No one else can experience your emotions or understand the workings of your mind. No one else can create your thoughts. Others can help you recognize unhealthy thoughts, but only you can change them. You are your own best healer.

So where do we begin we begin by Healing the soul first, then the healing of the mind and body will take place. While the perspective of medicine is to heal the body first, the psycho-spiritual perspective reminds us to heal the soul first, for it's the source of your being and is the spiritual nature that animates your mind and body. If you begin here, then the mind and the body will heal simultaneously. What are the needs of the soul? They are to live joyfully, passionately, purposefully and to express these qualities in what you think, what you say and what you do.

In all honesty only love heals because the energy love carries within it an incredible healing power. When you send love to any part of your body that's hurting or not functioning properly it engages the healing powers of the soul and the mind. The mind shifts its attention from identifying a problem to finding solutions to heal the problem. The soul embraces that part of the body and floods it with the healing energy of love.

In addition the power of forgiveness creates the space for love in the heart - When your heart is full of fear or anger, sadness, or despair, there's no space for love, and without love it's difficult to remain healthy. While love is associated with the soul, forgiveness is associated with the mind, and represents the release of the emotional charges attached to hurtful thoughts. The thoughts we are referring to are the thoughts that create victim behaviour and cause you to live life tentatively rather than fully.

Remember the journey of life is one of change and the journey of healing is one of change. Change is what happens from one thought to another. It's what reshapes your thinking and moves you from the past into the present and from the present into the future. The first step in healing is forgiveness. The next step is love.

Make change your action plan allowing you to focus on what you want rather than what you don't want, Healing works with the Law of Attraction, The best way to see whether your thoughts are healthy is to look at your lifestyle, your relationships, and your health. If what you see isn't what you want, then change it. When you do, healing is the outcome.
