Health & Healing

Health is the free flow of energy through the body and can be achieved through an ever evolving mind, body, spirit balance or equilibrium.

Your body has incredible untapped potential to heal, that potential lies in a place of peace, deep inside you. It is always there, always accessible. Silence unlocks the body's innate capacity to heal and helps you move towards greater inner peace, guidance and well-being.

Power to Change Interview

I recently wrote a chapter in a book called Power to Change.  It includes my chapter - 5 P's to Making Life Enhancing Changes as well as chapters from 18 other experts in various modalities of creating change. 

In addition to outlining how to facilitate change, I answer the question - 'why do people often wait until they have a life-threatening diagnosis, like cancer, to make life-enhancing changes?'. The 5 P's are: Pain, Power, Permission, Passion and Purpose.  Please use this link to listen to my interview:

Cancershift Cancer Manifesto

  Cancer Manifesto - A spiritual view on the higher purpose of cancer.

This manifesto offers a new perspective, a spiritual way of looking at and helping you heal from cancer. It is an invitation to believe that cancer can change your life for the better - to shift from seeing cancer as a life threatening disease to a potentially life enhancing journey.

If you feel resistance while reading or disagree with any statement, I invite you to simply add the words – What if… before the statement, then ask yourself ‘Do I want to adopt this belief or not? Would it serve me in some way if it were true?’.

  •  Cancer Always Serves a Higher Purpose - Cancer is not a random occurrence. It is in your life at this time to signal a need for greater harmony or alignment in your body or your life.
  •  Your Body Knows – Tune into It - You make not understand the deeper meaning of your cancer now but your body does – tune in, listen and learn from it. It will give you signs and hints as to what you need to explore, release, forgive or focus on to experience healing.
  •  Fears hold Answers - Hiding from your fears is counter productive. When you lean into and explore them you will find deep insights into what needs your attention.
  •  Stress holds you Back - Stress and resistance block the flow of energy and make messages from your body and your higher self more difficult to tune into whereas acceptance creates flow.
  •  Acceptance & Curiosity lead to Guidance - Fully accepting your situation and becoming curious about why the cancer has appeared is the fastest path to getting answers and experiencing deeper levels of healing.
  •  Being Alert Speeds up the Journey - Answers, insights and ideas often come when you least expect them - stay open, mindful and alert so you are ready when the teacher/guidance appears.
  •  A Spiritual Approach brings Deeper Healing - Having faith that you are constantly being guided towards greater levels of peace, joy and love will change your journey. Faith transmutes the struggle into a portal for greater consciousness, learning and love.
  • Meditation is a Catalyst for Clarity & Healing - When your mind is quiet and your body is still the wisdom of your soul can be heard and you can tap into your body’s innate healing power.
  •  Cancer can Lead to your Calling - Your soul and your body guide you towards your purpose. Cancer is also guidance or a wake up call that can help you get on your purpose path and courageously pursue your calling.
  •  Passion Uplifts & Promotes Healing - Doing what you love and are passionate about gives you newfound energy, conveys messages of hope and healing and boosts your immune response.

Ultimately, your struggle will transform into a blessing when you discover how it has enabled you to contribute or help others in a meaningful way – when you have tapped into the powerful energy, passion and fulfillment that comes with living your purpose.

My message to you:

I am a certain there is a better way to heal from cancer - it involves listening to it, and learning from it. I am passionate about helping empower you to shift how you see and heal from cancer and turn your struggle into a road map for finding your calling, contact me at Please leave any comments, personal experiences or reflections below.



Meditation - not just for relaxation anymore!

Everyone knows the great relaxation benefits that meditation provides but not many people know that meditation can also help your body repair, rebuild and some studies have shown it even helps change the way your genes behave!

An article from the Harvard Medical School talks about a study where blood samples were taken before and after the participants were given an 8-week relaxation response training course. The samples were analyzed to observe the expression of over 22,000 genes at various points in the study.

The conclusion was that deep relaxation produces immediate changes in the expression of genes involved in immune function, inflammation levels, energy metabolism and insulin secretion. Although the findings showed the short term benefits of meditating, they also indicated that with longer term practice the results were even more pronounced.

Great news for anyone with cancer and those concerned about their genetic predisposition to cancer.

You may be thinking that meditation is hard or that you don't have time for it but given that the benefits of deep, Theta state meditation are actually greater than the benefits of Delta wave sleep, I suggest getting up 20 minutes earlier in order to start your day with a meditation practice.


At the conference with Eben Alexander and Karen Newell I spoke about last time I experienced a very deep meditation thanks to Karen's Sacred Acoustics recordings. The recordings help quiet the mind and bring you more quickly into the Theta brainwave state. Please use this link to try Karen's free 20-minute OM meditation. If you prefer to meditate without music or sound I have many guided meditations available on my course site including a Deep Healing meditation - an empowering 10-minute guided healing journey.

I believe meditation is one of the most powerful tools for healing at a mind, body, spirit level and that soon doctors will be writing prescriptions for people to meditate twice daily as part of any treatment plan! But don't wait to start, recordings make meditating easy - please let me know if you have any questions or visit my website to try my 5-minute mini meditation and for tips on how to start a regular practice.

Be well and stay relaxed!


Hardships are the stepping stones to higher consciousness

I was lucky to recently attend a talk by Dr. Eben Alexander. He is the author of the book Proof of Heaven based on a near-death experience (NDE) he had while in a coma for 7 days. I have used his experience in my presentation on Finding Opportunity in Adversity and he confirmed that he sees his coma and the resulting shift in his consciousness as a true gift.

It was not an easy shift though because he was a trained neurosurgeon who believed that when the brain did not work, people had no awareness. During his NDE he heard and saw amazing things and felt unconditional love yet his brain, that was being constantly monitored, registered no activity in the area responsible for sensory perception.

He has now come to believe that science has it wrong, consciousness does exist outside of the brain and that the brain actually limits our awareness in many ways.

Here are some of the other powerful messages that he shared:

  • All challenges are stepping stones to help us learn, grow and evolve our consciousness (or awareness)
  • If you take a big enough picture, hardships always serve us
    • We plan them in order to give ourselves learning opportunities
  • Some of the answers we are searching for come to us before we ask the question
    • Be aware of guidance, insights, co-incidences as even if they don't make sense in the moment, someday they may
  • Know that you have nothing to fear
  • All healing (emotional, mental & physical) benefits from a basis in spiritual awareness and healing

Next time I will talk about an amazing sound meditation that we experienced during the session.

Be well and stay open to the stepping stones disguised as struggles on your chosen path!
