There is a rapid awakening going on today, a realization that life is more than meets the eye. Many people are becoming aware of energy, and that there are invisible forces influencing our well-being. On a collective level, we are recognizing that unseen influences like relationship stress, emotional trauma, environmental pollution, and the strain of dealing with health challenges exert powerful influence on our physical health; we are also becoming more aware that love, prayer, and intention have extraordinary healing effects. This is a quantum leap from just decades ago. Yet we haven’t quite understood what it is that underlies, connects, and makes possible all these phenomena: the etheric energy that shapes our subtle being.
Harmonic healing is directed toward switching on your awareness of subtle energy and then giving you an instruction manual for how to use it in your life. It can be intimidating to discover that interferences of pollution affect your cells and that parasites of various kinds may be living within your body. It can be daunting to also make dietary changes. I recommend a calm approach that has defined natural health care through the ages: peeling away the layers to restore the vital force, using nontoxic methods and minimal intervention. There is a hidden power of foods and ingredients that may already be in your kitchen and receive help in using them to care for your life-giving force that is the essence of who you are. One gentle step at a time, you can open to your healing potential, with Mother Nature as your ally.
Sometimes it can seem like the more you know about the challenges in our environment and the obstacles to good health, the more anxious you get about it. I invite you to be hopeful: This is a tremendous time to live healthfully. There is easier access to fresh, organic, or biodynamic food than ever before, and there are more people sharing the passion for using natural substances to heal. You will discover you are not alone, and that this knowledge—cooking nurturing soups and taking healing baths—has been the foundation of health for centuries. And by acknowledging the unseen, you will discover your innate capacity for a deeper level of self- care—an attunement to how foods make you feel and an awareness of how to use them. You can start to use these tools on an ongoing basis to stay in balance and maintain vitality, rather than letting small imbalances snowball into bigger issues.
It’s not to say there will never be health challenges or problems. Each of us has been given unique tendencies toward health and disease, and we all have our individual makeup and life circumstances. There are some things we cannot change or fix. In this way of healing, we do not pray for what we want; we honor what we have been given, we come to understand that sometimes what we cannot fix or change, can be a doorway into knowing ourselves better, and finding peace, joy, and self- love. This can be a vulnerable place to be, by allowing ourselves to feel, but more importantly, it can be a valuable opportunity for growth. Know that whatever you are currently experiencing or have experienced in the past, you can be influenced by subtle energy and restoring your vital energy will create health and balance in life.
Medicine today has adopted a vocabulary of fighting: When you are sick, you are often told to battle the illness and fight back against it. If you have been suffering or uncomfortable in your body for some time, I want to pave a kinder and gentler path for you to get to the other side and begin to feel better. It starts by peeling away some of the layers interfering with and suppressing your energy.
In the Harmonic Healing program, you may find your way back to your original state—the blueprint of who you are. You can begin to know what people on earth have always known: that food heals, positive thoughts heal, love heals, water heals, and conscious breathing heals. You will also discover that subtle medicine is peaceful medicine. And with each choice you make, adopting a new way of eating or a new method of caring for yourself, you create that peace within.
As any true healer will say, the healer does not heal you; the healer helps you to release the blocks interfering with your natural energy, so that you can heal yourself.
