Ask this simple question to fire up your 2018 resolutions

At this time of the year, we make New Year's resolutions and welcome the year with a plan to slay them. Pausing to reflect on "Why" before coming up with a plan of action adds the secret sauce for success. This year, our family played Reverse Secret Santa and asked one another for help to make our wishes come true. I share my daughter's true wish on my blog, and the process I use in my work with clients to help them regain true health.
Why I practise holistic healing
I know what it's like to be told your child is autistic - there's no cure.
I know what it's like to have an autoimmune diagnosis - you need to get on these meds or else. But if you want a holistic option, wait, let me look it up, you can get these herbs from me for this condition.
I know what it's like to be scared, to feel helpless without a roadmap home, to go from doctor to practitioner and back, chasing diagnoses, lab results and buying hope in shopping bags full of supplements and medications.
I know what it is like to not be seen and heard in this invisible mesh of dis-ease that runs through one's family, psyche and expresses itself in vague and changing symptoms of the body.
I know, in my heart of hearts, that healing starts to take place when we decide to work with the wisdom of the body. To allow our bodies to self-heal, with the guidance of healers who walk the talk with us to unfreeze the diagnoses.
I know homeopathy reaches those places where conventional drugs cannot, because it honors the integrity of the body, mind and spirit to restore wholeness.
I also know that the art of homeopathy is most powerful when it is practiced holistically, not just given out as a magic band aid. It hangs together with an approach to living well, with self-awareness, trying to become whole. We are all part of a whole, and I believe in sharing heart-and-mind space with other healers who embrace their own truths.
Opportunity: be my mentored coaching client
During the past year, I started thinking about why some clients do better than others, and why some do not, in spite of good therapeutic support. I realized that many carried with them a story that hung over them like a dark cloud.
That's when I signed up for Narrative Health Coaching, a coaching style that helps people uncover their own stories and re-write them in order to heal, with practices and awareness exercises to shift mindset and energy. I am now entering the mentoring phase of the coach training and have space for 2 mentored coaching clients. If you are ready to take charge of your own health and do the work it takes, please contact me to see if you might be a good fit for this 3-month journey to co-create health from the inside out. I may use the lens of homeopathy, but will not be giving you a homeopathic remedy to take. Oh, and the price can't be beat!
a) Restore optimal functioning of the body with gemmotherapy, using tinctures made from embryonic plant tissue to cleanse and rejuvenate cells and support healthy elimination.
b) Repair dysfunction and reach a new state of total health with a customized homeopathic remedy to act as a catalyst for self-healing.
c) Reset your inner game and addresslifestyle with coaching.
