Mid-January 2016 Newsletter

Hello, and a spectacular mid-January to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. In the photo above I'm in a favorite natural setting. I don't remember why I was looking up, but I love the optimism and anticipation on my face. Do you too believe our future will be even better than our past?

Today's issue has an article on energy medicine. Enjoy!

What is energy medicine?
 child with hands over eyes The term "energy medicine", or "energy healing" is used to refer to alternative medical or therapeutic practices, as opposed to the more invasive traditional methods of surgery, radiation, or pharmaceutical drugs. It includes many vastly different modalities, from body-work like massage to aromatherapy to mind-body therapies like EFT ("tapping"). What they all have in common is using the body's own energy to help itself heal. Traditional western medicine is more often focused, I hate to say, on suppressing troublesome symptoms.

Energy medicine practitioners often harness or recommend Nature's energy to facilitate the healing process. This could be be an essential oil to soothe a headache or ease inflammation, or walking outdoors and spending time with a big sturdy tree to calm anxiety. Many times a re-balancing of the body's own energy is all that's needed. This could mean revving up a sluggish metabolism (or attitude!) with some gentle exercise, or soothing a rushing frantic approach with meditation. No drugs might be necessary at all.

In this rush rush, hurry hurry society, I've found it essential to adjust my body pacing so I can get through my day without exhausting myself, yet can still be productive. I remember talking with a gym buddy years ago who had a FedEx job delivering packages during the busy holiday season. He said "I sprint, then I rest". Even a high-performance car needs to stop for refueling! We do too.

Another central principle of energy medicine is that we can pick up the negative energy of others, if we're not paying attention. I'm sure you've been with a grumpy friend or family member and felt your own energy slumping. Or you've been around someone nervous, and realized you were becoming anxious, even though her problem wasn't yours at all! My energy medicine teacher Deborah King trains us to ask, about an uncomfortable or unusual feeling, "Is this mine, or is it theirs?". Often this alone is enough to let the emotion move away from you. Mom was anxious, you weren't!

So pay attention to your energy, your life force, your spirit, your "juice". If it feels like your fuel indicator is dipping, don't grab for that stimulant without checking in with your body and your feelings first. Maybe all you need is a little movement, like a brisk walk! Pretend you're an energy medicine practitioner who heals people naturally, since we're all natural healers. What would you prescribe for your most important patient, yourself? You know what you need, if you get quiet, go within, and listen.

Would you like an email consultation with me?
Many people have a question or concern about their vision condition, or want help with a puzzling dream, yet don't feel the need for a full hour's coaching session with me. For folks like this, I've now added an Email Consult service, for much less than my hourly rate. To take advantage of this, click here. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Do you want your own copy of future newsletters?
If a friend forwarded this to you, or you're reading it from Facebook or LinkedIn, this is a hit-or-miss method of receiving it, and you might miss it next time. If you'd like to be on my distribution list, send me a short note here. You can unsubscribe at any time. Thank you!

Please send me your comments
Let me know what you've wondered about concerning vision or dreams or energy medicine, and I'll be glad to write a future article on that topic. Thank you to those who see a question you asked me in a private session written about here. You're helping many other people! Enjoy the second half of your January. I'll write again in a few weeks. Take care!
