I champion the human body!
I am your advocate for Self-Healing!
I Vote Your Victory!
I've created this page to tell you about my approach and philosophy of Healing. I espouse Wholism, and the notion of Wholistic Health...not "holistic." I endeavor to inspire the Wholeness of a person; the Whole person...not holes, or deficits! The concept of working toward wholeness is helpful, I think, for assisting one seeking healing to envision where they are headed. When feeling sick or dis-eased, don't you feel "broken up?" Every step toward integrating Mind, Body and Emotion draws Wellness to a person. Every little gain toward feeling better, having a better attitude, and experiencing more energy is a mile gained toward optimal health.
Gratitude is the root of all healing.
The Western approach segments and separates our dis-ease; pigeon-holing symptoms into exotic diseases; pinpointing this organ or that; the nervous system, endocrine system or bones as if they stand alone and 'cause' problems all by themselves. Nothing in the whole Universe works that way!! Medicine is given to target specific areas or conditions in the body. At times this is necessary, and so incredibly helpful. I call those heroic measures. In general, however, by ignoring the synergy and cyclic interaction of organs and our amazing physiological systems, we come to believe that we are doomed if one part of us becomes imbalanced, painful, or dis-eased.
Wholistically, we can clean the body's organs, blood, even the joints. There is huge commitment involved...changing our diet and lifestyle is a basic...and learning to think in new ways and focus on what we want rather than our fears. We become what we think as well as what we eat. We can begin to exercise or increase or sometimes change the exercise we do.
Massage releases tension, and can move the blood and lymph. Ammatherapy, Shiatsu, Acupuncture and Acutonics follow the channesl of "Qi" ('Chi') to realign our energy pathways, clearing blockages and allowing energy to flow freely into and through our organs and limbs, and our brain in their moment-by moment, hourly, daily and monthly cycles. An organ that is over-excited can be calmed, and one that is 'empty' can be 'opened' to receive the energy one's body is trying to offer it.
All these modalities are called Energy Medicine, and Vibrational Medicine is part of that. Homeopathy and Herbs can effect marvelous healing for you. These ways of healing have been tried and true for thousands of years, and some since time began.
As well, Sound has been an integral part of the Human Experience. I use a myriad of Tuning Forks, Gongs, Bells, Singing Bowls...both Crystal and Brass. I may choose a Rain Stick or Rattle to help move your energy. I'm a Certified Second Level Acutonics Tuning Forks Practitioner, utilizing Traditional Chinese Medicine precepts per Acutonics. My Teacher is Suzanne Clegg.
Often I will place Crystals upon a person, if they are comfortable with the idea of Crystals emanating healing qualities. Crystals develop out of energy patterns, chemical and environmental situations; and crystals also transmit and receive energy. I may place clean crystals on various points of a person's body to allow the flow and attraction of universal energy to encourage the free flow of their own energy. The human body is a mini-cosmos. As Above, So Below! It's my belief that the Intention alone, to allow the energy through the crystal is enough to focus your acceptance of Healing, and that it will assist you toward your Highest Good.
Masuro Emoto showed the Crystalline structures of Water, and the interaction of our words and feelings with their development. One of my most joyous moments was to stand in his energy field in Sedona, Arizona in 2007. I'm grateful that he allowed me a photo with him. His work influenced my understanding of the Universe and energy in general, proving the delicate nature of words and the enormity of the Miraculous in this magnificent Earth and Universe.
Aromatherapy is one of my favorite healing and meditational mediums. Again, this is a form of Energy Medicine. The vibrational energies of the flowers, plants and trees; their Essence, is carefully distilled out of leaves, flowers and branches or roots. The body accepts these lovely droplets of a plant's attributes and draws it into the adipose (fat) cells; transporting the essence to places of like energy; where balance and healing can take place.
I use marvelous, consciously grown, picked, distilled and poured Medicinal Grade Essences of plants, flowers and trees in my Aromamassage and Aroma Meditations. I ingest them and use them neat on my body. I am a proud Independent Distributor for Wisdom of the Earth hand-poured Aromatics. Every grower and wildcrafter is personally known by the owner of WOTE.
Spirit introduced me to WOTE on my first trip to Sedona, Arizona. I suffered a terrible injury to my eye. My first day's attendance at the Prophets Conference was missed, as I regrouped my confidence as to how to care for myself. Out in the boonies...where I love to be; and never am I wont to race to allopathic dispensers. I reminded myself that the body is a self-healing organism, and I dipped into my Medicine Bag for a Traditional Chinese Remedy I'm never without, called Wan Hua Oil. This I applied on the wound and just rested the day out and cooked my food in camp. After an exhausting day before that, crossing the desert, it was the best I could do.
Next morning I mustered up and set my embarrassment aside for the scary appearance I was projecting, dressed for the world and attended the conference. There I met a man who heals with sound; specifically the Dididjeroo. Lo, I was ready for healing of all sorts...for I had just crossed the desert of my Soul's Journey and arrived in a Land of Discovery. He blew his incredible instrument, chanted for me and got a message: HYSSOP! "Go and visit the booth for Wisdom of the Earth, he told me, and ask for Hyssop. I did, and to make the long story less detailed, I took Helichrysm, Carrot Seed and Hyssop Essences away with me. Never before had I thought of putting Essential 'Oils' (not oils, actually...essences.) on wounds, nor for using prophyllactically ....they were beautiful fragrances, I knew...to assist Psyche and Spirit, and I associated ingestion of Oregano and the like with Herbology, not Aromatherapy. Wisdom of the Earth's Essences can be ingested, as they are pure and combined with nothing. I ingest them all the time.
Well, I used the Devas of the three magnificent plants and I have no scars!
I also had my first Aromamassage before I left to return home, and that sealed my Intention! Here was the Teacher I'd been seeking for my studies and Certification in Aromatherapy. To date I've achieved my Level II Certification, and audited both levels several times. I await the next development of further training.
I personally use the lovely scented essences for aches, pains, bruises, skin healing, and viral remedy. Xanthoxylum keeps my gums healthy and is healing the site of a tooth extraction post haste! Manuka helps sore muscles relax, and is one of my favorite fragrances. Helichrysum, Hyssop, Carrot and Cistus are all wonderful for the skin. Eucalyptus on the chest and inhaled in steaming water along with Hyssop and Inula Graveolens is my remedy for colds or flu...after breathing it, drink the infusion and feel the healing happen! (and remember to use your Netti Pot or a paper cup pinched into a spout to wash out your nasal passages! ...it's the best of the best! You will see a flu heal up twice as fast)
I welcome you to contact me to arrange your own experience of the wondrous healing powers of Nature's Devas of Trees, Plants and Flowers. Unabashedly, I believe I 'stumbled' upon the best, most carefully tended and distilled Plant Essences available. There are no accidents...even when there's an accident!
What is the Future of Aromatherapy in Medicine?

Reiki is another way I've chosen to be a Helper to myself and my fellow humans and animals. In fact, Reiki is appreciated by plants and all living things. Reiki is a process of focusing the benevolent energy of Universal Love toward self and others. My lineage includes Ravi Shankar (not the musician), teacher of Hari Krishna Shah from India; my first Level I Teacher who attuned me to Usui. Richard Sluszka attuned me to Level II and Diane Ruth Shewmaker attuned me as Usui Master and Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki and SKHM, as received by Diane and developed by herself and her partner. A few years later I took another attunement with Lorry Saluzzi and later Astara, who has given me Dolphin Reiki and first and second Chou, or Butterfly Reiki attunements.
I work in a sort-of Shamanic, Quantum Physics way to bring about spiritual, emotional and physical healing. Our bodies are self-healing organisms; a practicioner helps inspire the healing. When you heal, however...it is you that has done something magical in yourself. You have received!
One of the most difficult challenges we humans have is to get out of the way of our own fears and habitual, programmed ways of seeing so that we can support ourselves and promote the benefits a practicioner conveys. Shamanic ways require client participation to catalyze healing. We all need to take responsibility for our lives and health. When we do that, we begin meeting those that can assist. We begin personally meeting and interacting with the Spirit of Healing, Trust and Transformation ... the free and loving Energy that is the Birthright and Legacy of every living being.
My latest training was with Richard Bartlett of Matrix Energetics. Another form of Energy Healing to draw upon. I have had one workshop with Richard and his daughter. They are amazing and Destiny did affect a healing on a painful ankle and foot. It had been a problem for 9 months or so, and I haven't been bothered with it since it completed it's healing after Destiny's treatment, which took about 4-5 minutes. Matrix is a way and practice of shifting into a new paradigm.
A word about the Avian Flu...I was surprised and pleased to hear CBS newscasters say that people are more infected with fear than diseases. I fully agree. Eat carefully, breathe deeply, exercise to keep circulation flowing freely and build up immunity. Embrace the Goodness of each day. Look at birds with appreciation and know that your sense of safety will manifest through the Greater Reality. Caution is good. Yet, Huna teachings truthfully say that ENERGY FLOWS WHERE ATTENTION GOES. Keep your attention on your Perfect Health. Rest well. Eat well. Use Wholistic therapies to maintain the health you have, and increase immunity and strength.
Wishing you Optimal Health, Wellbeing and Prosperity.

I was so thrilled to meet this living, pink lotus at camp!
a friend shared this...I am trying it out
Cinnamon & Honey
(Remember to use raw honey which contains the digestive enzymes that really make a difference. You will find that raw honey can be kept outside the fridge without getting moldy. Try it...if you keep processed honey for a long time, you will find mold in it.)
It is found that a mixture of honey and cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is
produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also
accept honey as a "Ram Ban" (very effective) medicine for all kinds
of diseases. Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of
Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients. Honey is a synergistic food, processed through plant life and bees' digestive systems too. Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, on its issue dated 17 January, 1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:
((You are reminded to
consult with your caretaker before trying these; stop and consider what makes
sense to you; what feels right for you? Listen primarily to your
Self...your considered and good judgement!))
Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.
Arthritis patients may take daily, morning, and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen
University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.
Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.
Make a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and five teaspoons of honey and apply on the aching tooth a little at a time. This may be applied three times a day until the tooth stops aching.
Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient were found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol. (By the way. if you're taking cholesterol medicine STOP! They all contain STATIN which weakens your muscles...including YOUR HEART and none has been shown to stop heart attacks or strokes!!!! (You would need the help of a cooperative Doctor, however...never simply discontinue any medication, as it can have adverse affects. One must be carefully weaned off the meds, as there will be a detoxifying affect on your liver, pouring toxins into the bloodstream to be eliminated.)
Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses. (Didn't your Grandma tell you that?)
Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.
According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that if honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.
Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacteria and viral diseases.
Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.
A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural Ingredient which kills the influenza germs and guards the patient from flu.
Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder and three cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life span also increases and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.
Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.
Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.
Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.
Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three times a day.
Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing teeth, and in the afternoon at about 3:00 p.m. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, will increases the vitality of the body within a week.
People of South America, first thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.
Daily morning and night honey and
cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restore hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!
I will look up the credit for this...this wonderful artist is so prolific and seen all over the web.
