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:

Ask, Believe, Receive

Last time I talked about feeling stuck and how if a pattern keeps appearing, there is definitely something you can learn from it.  If you are able to shift your focus, I believe that you can turn any challenge into a purposeful, learning experience

So once you have identified and taken ownership of the pattern, it is time to start exploring the lesson it holds.  In order to really learn any lesson you need to change your actions.  We sometimes have a tendency to intellectually understand something but if we don’t translate that into changes in our life then we have not eliminated the need for the pattern. 

As a next step, I invite you to set aside some quiet time for reflection. Take some deep breathes and relax into the present moment.  Then start asking open-ended questions - out loud, in your head or on paper.  Allow yourself to be open and curious as to why the pattern is showing up in your life. 

  • What can I learn from this?
  • Why is this situation appearing in my life now?
  • How can I see things differently?
  • What else is possible here?
  • If I learn this lesson, what insights will I gain?

Then wait for an answer or insight – for some kind of guidance.  Some insights come right away, others later on.  The guidance can come in many forms; through books or articles you read, e-mails you receive, discussions with friends or family members, movies etc.  Once you have asked the question to the Universe, you have set the wheels into motion to receive an answer.  Don’t under estimate the famous biblical line; ask and you shall receive or ask, believe and you shall receive.  My version would be; Ask, be open and curious, believe the guidance will come and you shall receive what you need (maybe not the answer you wanted or in the format you expected but you will get guidance)!

Remember to have fun with the questions, don’t take the exercise too seriously or you will close yourself down by getting stressed about it.  Stress and tension limit our ability to receive – guidance, gifts, insights, love etc.  So remain relaxed and inquisitive and let the guidance flow into your life.

Next time I will talk about another approach to learning from your patterns. 

Until then, be your authentic, loving and curious self!


PS. I will be giving my 5Ps to Make Life Enhancing Changes presentation at the Atwater Library on June 6th. at 12:30pm.  I would love to have you attend, so if you are in Montreal and interested mark your calendar!

Today is the 19th of july and my dad was put in the hospital on Tuesday and Wednesday he was told he had lymphoma 5 cm to 8 cm from his main heart valve to his belly button, and he will get more information on it Monday. I am so scared he is 60 years old and has worked for 42 years and i am a only child at 36 years old. the doctors are making us wait and I am just trying to get maybe some type of out look on this and figure out just how bad this is and maybe what stage this could be and a possible survival rate.
