365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 177: The Ugly Truth


Are you or someone you know in pain?

I am talking about physical pain but this applies to emotional pain as well.

This is the ugly truth of why you are still suffering: you continue to create your pain.

This is a simple and straightforward sequence of events:

You cannot heal your body if you believe you cannot heal →Your belief creates fear → Fear creates stress → Stress creates stress hormones → The healing process is hindered, stopped or even reversed → Pain becomes ‘’chronic’’ → Pain rules your life!

Getting out of pain is just as simple and straightforward and it must start with your thoughts.

Without changing your beliefs all the healing modalities you try and all the therapists you hire will have limited, partial success.



365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 176: Retrain Your Thinking To Change Your Body


In yesterday’s post I stated that you can heal your body by changing the way you think and the way you feel.

This is not wishful thinking or any kind of crazy talk.

It is science.

That is right: science backs it up!

Dr. Bruce Lipton, PhD is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. He is a stem cell biologist, bestselling author of The Biology of Belief and recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award.

In The Biology of Belief, Dr. Liptons’s provides a profoundly hopeful synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics. The book, being hailed as a major break-through, is showing that our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking.

Dr. Lipton says that DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts.

Our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking.

We can even control our DNA!

What this all means is that NOTHING is written in stone.

Are you ready to change your health and transform your body?

Start with your thoughts!



365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 175: It Starts With How You Feel


I have seen people heal chronic pain they have struggled with for a long time. I have also seen people carrying the same discomfort for years and years without getting better.

Why? What makes some people heal while others cannot seem to get out of pain?

It all starts with how they feel. The people who shift their thinking process from doom and gloom to the possibility of healing, start to feel lighter and less stressed and then their bodies respond in kind with less discomfort. These people start healing, even if initially they did not think it was possible.

The people who continue to struggle with chronic pain are trapped in a vicious circle of thoughts and feelings that are destructive and hinder their bodies’ innate healing power.

Sounds too simple to be true?

It is not. It is science.

If your body needs healing, start examining what kind of thoughts go through your mind with respect to your body and the discomfort you’re in.

It all starts with how you think and how you feel.



365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 120: Your Energetic Body


Your body emits an electromagnetic field. This is not news anymore. Measurable and distinct, this electromagnetic field has different readings when your body experiences disease, injuries or illness.

This is an excerpt from www.pemfglobal.com.

“An electromagnetic field is a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. Many things including the earth, our bodies and electronics emit these fields. Their interaction is called electromagnetism.

Like our planet, all natural things emit electromagnetic fields. When the fields produced by our bodies interact with the earth’s field we have more vitality or find that our pains no longer ail us. 

Man-made electromagnetic fields from cellphone towers, wi-fi and other electronic devices operate at higher levels and can make us feel lethargic or worse, develop chronic health issues.

PEMF therapy balances your electromagnetic field by transmitting pulsed electromagnetic frequencies tuned to the earth that counteract the negative fields caused by our environment, leaving you feeling alive and well.”

PEMF Therapy is a powerful and extremely effective method that will aid your healing efforts. There are many testimonials on www.pemfglobal.com, so if you are researching ways to heal your body, take the time to read some of them. Recently, Health Canada certified this PEMF device as a medical device.

I have been using this amazing technology for myself and with my clients for six years, with great results. I am thrilled to be part of a remarkable company (Swissbionic Solutions) whose goal is to change the world of healthcare.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 119: Your Emotional Body


Think of your emotional body as an aspect or a level of who you are. Your capacity to have an extraordinary array of feelings is deeply embedded in who you are as a human being. We all have this capacity, whether we acknowledging its existence and power or not. We are equipped to feel the most subtle variations of joy and anger, pain and love, hope and despair. It is part of who we are. Also part of our makeup is the capacity to process our feelings, to allow them to run their course and to release them. I wrote about Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor’s 90 Second Rule in my post on Day 9. She determined that it takes only 90 seconds to have an emotional circuit triggered, ignite the physiological response through the body and then flush it completely out of the system. The emotional body is intelligent and efficient.

The most remarkable link between your physical body and your emotional body lies in this very capacity to process at the physical level every single feeling that you have and to fully release it. This is also the greatest weakness, because if you continue to hold on to past feelings of anger, shame, pain, guilt or any other diminishing feelings, your physical body will eventually be put as risk. The physical body cannot become the long-term container for such feelings because it is not equipped for it.

Are there any feelings that diminish your vitality and your life force? Are you holding on to anger, shame, blame, feeling like a victim, hate, guilt or any other feeling as such?

Are you ready to move on and create a healthy, vibrant, joyous life for yourself? Write down the past hurts and unresolved pains, let them pour out of your system and onto the paper. That is the first, most powerful step that you can take: bringing these feelings out in the open. You can only clear and release feelings that you  you are willing to admit you have.

Write them down and the paper will take away some of the heaviness that you feel.

Put this list together with the list you created yesterday.


These are your first few steps to change your body and your life.



365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 118: Your Physical Body


The way I understand it, there are five aspects to who we are:

  • Physical
  • Emotional
  • Energetic
  • Mental
  • Spiritual

These aspects or levels are interconnected in ways that we do not yet fully understand, but it is important to pay attention to all of them and be open to new ways of being and accepting their intricacies.

Yesterday I was writing about the signs we receive from the physical body and the fact that they are invitations for greater awareness. Today I want you to make a list of all the things that are creating discomfort or trouble in your body. Don’t start dwelling on what might go wrong and what you fear is going to happen. Just write down the things that are giving you signals: a knee, an eye, the heart, a hip, the many times you got colds and flues over the last year or so, the bladder, a vertebra or a disc, digestive issues; you get the idea. Whatever gives you signals of discomfort or pain is trying to get your attention. So pay attention and write it all down.

The purpose of this exercise is not to overwhelm or scare you. It’s purpose is to allow you to pay attention and become more aware; to stop ignoring what your body is trying to tell you.

Once you have your list, choose one thing that you can do immediately, right next week in order to improve the situation: make an appointment with your doctor, call a nutritionist, naturopath, osteopath, search for a new trainer; whatever you consider your next step needs to be, commit to it and do it. It all starts with a small step. Take action. It is important. Your taking action means that you are not ignoring your body anymore. One small step will lead to another and another. If you truly want them, the answers will come to you.

And you do want answers, don’t you? You want a solution. Take that little first step. Immediately.
