Practicing Healing Forgiveness

I've recently made a huge breakthrough in my life. It came from facing the challenge of being in an unsatisfying situation. Again and again, this situation manifested into a rigidly tense body where I was either gaining or losing 5 pounds. My thoughts were negative and I often felt like the situation was getting the better of me. I knew to be released from this situation I had to come to peace with it and even find joy in the moment. I laughed at myself for thinking this was possible.

I think one of the reasons my first Juice Feast wasn't as successful as I would like it is because I held the mistaken belief I could heal everything through an exclusive diet of freshly made organic fruit and vegetable juices. Don't get me wrong, on the Juice Feast I had a taste of miracles yet it was merely a taste which I mistakenly believed would turn into a thirst quencher. During the Juice Feast I tried to heal myself through predominantly physical means. I did listen to subliminal healing meditations, but they "didn't work". In my heart I struggled so desperately for them to work, but still they would not remove the boulder from my shoulders. I say the Juice Feast didn't work for me because I did not achieve what I set out to do. The physical condition I wanted to disappear forever was still present at the end of the Juice Feast, although it had loosened its hold a bit.

So here I am again in another situation where what I was doing wasn't working. As I have discovered, sometimes we need to try many things before we learn how to use a tool properly. Now I admit the problem was me, not the tool. So, how did I learn to let go and win peace from this situation? In the depths of despair I found Ho'oponopono. I feel is success with me is because I first gained an understanding of the practice. If you would like one I encourage you to learn more here.

I have found two meditations online which have cleared my heart and allowed great joy to enter back into my life. I am continuing to study Ho'oponopono and I am grateful for the miracles it has already brought into my life.

Here is a meditation a beginner can enjoy.  This is but half of the meditation, but it's powerful on its own.
Keep in mind it's difficult for the process to work well without understanding what it means. For that reason I recommend seeking a complete explanation on how the key words and beliefs of  Ho'oponopono will alter the course of your life.

Here is an advanced meditation to try should you feel comfortable with taking responsibility for your healing and reaping the rewards.

I love you, please forgive me, I am sorry, thank you.

Purging Plastic

I dislike throwing around statistics, especially when it comes to plastic. I believe any plastic in my body is wrong and I want it out. The biggest problem with this is I keep finding new ways plastic is encroaching my personal space. So I was grateful to find a way to dissolve plastic toxins from my body.

I have been experimenting with organic or wild-crafted therapeutic grade essential oils for two months. After watching Cancer is Curable Now and hearing how plastic gums up our system I was grateful for having used essential oils in aromatherapy and external body elixirs. Essential oils must be respected and treated as strong medicine, because they are.  As Dr. Francisco Contreras mentioned in the Healing Cancer World Summit mentioned in an earlier post, whether or not it (medicine) is venom is determined by the dosage.

I struggle with finding and using a great diffuser. I've tried the candle burning diffuser, the electric diffuser but I face the same issue: I must closely monitor the water level holding the essential oil. I have found a new diffuser I think will work great. I am a huge fan of Himalayan Rock Salt lamps for the negative ions it emits to clean and purify the air near me. Now, it seems one will also release the fragrant healing power of plants. I love when I discover new ways to practice two or more healing practices in one.

Teach and Be Taught

A few weeks back I presented a speech to a Toastmasters club on healthy alternatives to mainstream choices. I sought to share how to balance mainstream opinions with personal choices. I had 10 minutes to present so I chose 11 fantastic documentaries to cover the facts. Within the last 6 or 7 years I have stepped up my commitment for a radically healthy life. So much so these 11 recommended documentaries were awesome but ones which I feel are more for people who are entrenched in mainstream philosophy (and hence the entire list is not duplicated on this post). I am now armed with higher doses of powerful healing information. This used to make me twinge a little as I would uncharacteristically look backwards with a longing wish. I used to wish someone had come along and shared powerful information with me.

Over the last few weeks I have been a sponge for information. I listened to the Healing Cancer World Summit every night and embraced the surprise bonuses with gratitude. I learned so much from this gathering of teachers, yet I captured very little in notes as I was engrossed in the message. As it turns out many of the speakers gave amazing examples of cancer treatments, protocols, and perspectives I had never heard of before. Beautiful!

I used to think I would never get cancer because I am proactive about my health. The facts are I do not have cancer and I do not want it, so I must educate myself about cancer--whether I have it or not. Many see cancer as a death sentence but survivors see it as a gift, an opportunity from the Universe to get themselves back on track and live a purpose-filled life.  To those people I say thank you for sharing your wisdom so that I (hopefully) do not have to go what you have gone through. The host of the summit kindly provides excellent recaps for each night.

As I prepare for my second Juice Feast I must fully engage in all areas for improvement in my health. As I have moved along my educational path I have realized the great importance of exploring uncharted paths and sometimes seemingly irrelevant topics. I have come to realize I have something to learn from everyone and I have the privilege of teaching those who cross my path. In the last 6 months I have developed a deep thirst for delectable documentaries. Below are several documentaries I believe will lead you to discovering a better life.
