When I discovered how bamboo grows, I thought it an apt image both for how heart issues develop AND how they heal.

Knowing how heart issues are like bamboo may help you both understand the healing process and be more patient with it.

Bamboo’s growth starts underground, where the rhizome system that supports the canes are developed. For three whole years, the plant establishes itself underground and there is no apparent growth. Absolutely nothing appears to be happening. For three years!

In the fourth year, shoots appear. The bamboo canes grow in height and diameter for only 60 days every spring. After the 60 days, that particular cane will never grow again.

However, because of the rhizome system, the next spring the shoots that come up will grow much taller and faster in those 60 days. After a bamboo grove has been establishing its rhizome system for 5 years, the canes that grow in that fifth year can reach as much as 90 feet (for certain species, in certain conditions)–all in 60 days!

This picture also applies to how heart issues form, and then manifest eventually in our lives in some health, relationship, and/or success issue.

Like the rhizome system that forms underground,

memories and beliefs accumulate in the subconscious

mind.

If enough unhealthy beliefs based on negative memories and images gather (whether in the unconscious or subconscious mind, or energy patterns in the DNA or cells, nobody knows exactly yet), they will eventually manifest in some kind of problem. It may take years, even decades for the “shoot” of the negativity to manifest, but eventually it does.

That manifestation can “take off” into a major illness. If the theories of Dr. Alex Loyd in The Healing Code and Dr. Bruce Lipton in The Biology of Belief are true, such illnesses began long before any symptoms or problems showed up.

Ever since I graduated as an undergrad in 1978, I have sponsored a child through Compassion International.

My Compassion child in Haitie, Marie Michel, Haiti, age 9

Marie Michel, Haiti, age 9

I am now on my fifth child, Marie Michel, who is now 9 years old.

(I had the privilege of meeting my then-current child in Haiti in 1990. It was an unforgettable experience. It broke my heart to witness firsthand the poverty of the people, and to see that my child was sick. Yet, the courage and commitment of the Compassion workers totally inspired me. THEY were not depressed like I was by the circumstances.)

I just got the following update from Compassion, and ask that you would pray along with me and others for this desperate situation.  (If you feel led, please also give to the relief fund.) We need God to shine His light of mercy here!

 

What to pray for Marie Michel

What to pray for Marie Michel

Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Haiti as they face a dire situation. Fuel subsidies have ended and caused major price increases. Many are protesting this in Haiti’s major cities, leading to violence, looting and blocked streets. Street blockages are causing banks and business to close — and preventing water and basic necessities from reaching those who need them most. As the situation worsens, families are forced to shelter in their homes to avoid the increasing violence. This grim situation follows a year of painful events for the people of Haiti, including a devastating earthquake and intense inflation.

Over half of Compassion’s Frontline Church Partners in Haiti are in areas reporting unrest. To keep children and staff safe, programing is paused, and staff members are reaching out to children and families over the phone to assist in any way they can. We hope to get children back into child development centers as soon as it is safe.

I know that hearing about the unrest and shortages in Haiti may weigh heavily on your heart. Would you join us in prayer? We ask you to pray with us for:

  • Protection for children and families living in areas of unrest.

  • Quick aid, including water, to be delivered to those who need it most.

  • Safety for Compassion staff as they assess and help.

Thank you for your commitment to praying for and ministering to children in poverty.

In Christ,
Steven Marble
Senior Director, Supporter Care
Compassion International

P.S. Will you prayerfully consider giving to the Disaster Relief Fund to help children and families in Haiti during this difficult time?

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, summer is drawing to an end (though we technically have a few more days of it).

I actually love autumn as well, and the change of seasons in general. (I just wish we didn’t have basically six months of winter here in the Midwest.)

I hope you’ve enjoyed your summer as much as I have. I relish my morning barefoot walks in the dewy grass, sometimes with my son’s dog Chester.

And I’ve enjoyed taking care of my pretty annuals. From which I have derived a few lessons about heart issues.

Every year I buy petunias and plant them in containers (easier to take care of). I love the color and variety of their beautiful blooms.

Every year, however, they would get leggy and then they would die. Early this spring I discovered why.

You have to deadhead them diligently, I learned. I thought, “This will be a great daily reminder for me not only to deadhead my petunia blooms, but to daily get rid of things I don’t need, that don’t serve me now, even if they did in the past.”

That’s something that I really felt I needed in my life: pruning. Much has changed for me, and I knew I needed to get back to “editing” my life—discarding the excess. This would include physical objects, papers, old files, emails, outgrown beliefs and negative energy patterns, information stored on my computer, etc. Even the way I’m doing business.

Well, things moved along beautifully with the petunias. I enjoyed seeing them thrive and diligently watered, fertilized, and deadheaded the spent blooms.

Until one day . . . they started to look sick. Something was munching the blooms and sucking the juice out of the stems.

I researched what could be the problem. I discovered it was: budworms!

Budworms are the larvae of some kind of moth, and they like to feed on petunias.

I bought some spray that was nontoxic and diligently followed the directions.

Soon my petunias were beautiful again!

But . . . the budworms kept coming back. I had to keep spraying.

This summer could be dubbed “My Battle with the Budworms.”

And I’m winning! But it requires me to stay diligent.

Every. Single. Day.

Are you getting how this applies to heart issues? We need to cultivate our heart by “watering and fertilizing” it with truth, gratitude, and positive focus.

 

We also need to beware of the “budworms.” When those “budworms” aka heart issues–old negative patterns, thoughts, beliefs, memories–start to sap our joy, undermine our health, we need to pay attention! We need to swiftly apply a remedy.

For budworms, Bon-Neem is the remedy. For heart issues, healing prayer and The Healing Codes are the remedy.

Gardens are a source of nourishment and beauty. So can your heart be, if you diligently “weed, feed and get rid of the budworms.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep your heart with all

diligence, for from it flow

the springs of life.” –Proverbs 4:23

What in your life needs “deadheading, pruning, watering, fertilizing, weeding out or treating with a remedy”?

A very high majority of my clients possess the inborn trait of Sensory Processing Sensitivity, making them what’s commonly known as Highly Sensitive People (HSP).

HSPs make up 20-30% of any population (it shows up in 100 species and is equally distributed among male and female), so we are automatically in the minority. (I say “we” because I am one; so is my husband and son.) Since there is a huge difference in how HSPs and non-HSPs experience the world, it’s extremely helpful to know whether you have this trait or not.

Yet, just because you may have this trait, that doesn’t mean you’re like all other HSPs. I love what Dr. Elaine Aron, who put this trait on the psychological map with her ground-breaking book, The Highly Sensitive Person, says on her blog: “All living beings are [different from one another], but even within the group of HSPs, or maybe more in this group, we are so different. After all, if our trait is about being more sensitive than others to our environment, that should mean that we vary more than others coming from similar environments.”

When clients discover they are Highly Sensitive, it’s often one of the biggest ahas of their life. “So that’s why I had so much trouble with . . .” or “So that’s why I seem to absolutely need . . .”

It reframes their experiences in a whole new way. It opens the door to begin to accept themselves for who they are, and to craft an environment that fits them.

But I’m not just interested in people understanding the trait. As Dr. Elaine Aron pointed out, even among HSPs, there are many differences.

I think it’s most helpful to know how this trait, if you have it, shows up for YOU.

image for Sensitvity FingerprintSo I created the Sensitivity FingerprintTM, and I’d love for you to have it. It’s a way to get to know your Highly Sensitive Soul—how the trait expresses in your life.

The first step is to take the Getting to Know Your Highly Sensitive Soul survey. This will prime the pump for you, and it will help me know how to serve you better.

After you submit the survey, you will get the Sensitivity FingerprintTM for your own records. There will be an opportunity for you to further explore how to not only get to know, but to heal the wounds of your Highly Sensitive soul.

After all, healing and transformation is my calling. And I’m super excited about the plans God is unfolding for me—and, perhaps, for you.

So please take the Getting to Know Your Highly Sensitive Soul survey, and stay tuned!

Your Healing Curriculum

By · Comments (0)

I have really sharp clients. Often, because they are in the process of healing and transformation and getting more and more aligned with their divine design, they come up with nuggets of wisdom.

Here’s something from Laura W. (who gave me permission to share it):

When we’re being asked to grow, the stretching often hurts. But it’s not: I have to do all these modalities to fix me. Rather, it’s a healing curriculum, it’s a certain kind of container I think of as Purpose Academy. College is one kind of container: you learn specific skills, but then you have to go out and live it to really get it and achieve mastery. But all of life is Purpose Academy—there’s a purpose to what God allows in, and it’s all for us to better discern our own purpose.”

Well said, Laura! Your transformation has been awesome.

I especially like what she said about doing things like The Healing Codes not to fix us, as if we’re broken. We may feel broken, but it’s more like we’re wounded, and the wounds knock us out of alignment with our divine design, our unique purpose for being on this earth. Through the rigors of Purpose Academy, the wounds are revealed so that they can be healed. When we heal those wounds, spiritually and energetically, then we can come into that Alignment. Read More→

If there’s one “heart issue” almost every client I know addresses at some point, it’s some variation of “not enough.”

This unhealthy can show up in a number of forms, leading to various outcomes. For instance:

  • “I’m not enough” (leads to low self-esteem, perhaps a sense you have to prove yourself; sometimes harmful ways of trying to fill the void).
  • “I don’t have enough” (leads to anxiety and often actual lack).
  • “I’m not doing enough” (leads to the harmful actions of overgiving, over-doing, workaholismm, etc.).
  • “I don’t know enough” (leads to endless learning rather than actually doing).
  • “There isn’t enough” (time, money, love, etc..–leads to despair).

Can you relate to any of these?

If so, remember—you’re not alone!

Some of us also experience almost the flip side of this: “too much.”

Too much expected of us. (And there are “not enough” resources to deal with it.)

Too much stimulation (especially true for those with the trait of High Sensitivity).

Too much to know before I can feel safe.

Lately a little “mantra” has slipped into my mind that helps me deal with the “not enough” issue (which for me is often, “I don’t know enough” or “I’m not doing enough”).

The mantra is this: “Let it be enough for now.”

Let it. Allow it. I have a choice: to allow, or to resist and fall back into the old “not enough” pattern.

“Let it be enough. A whole new energy comes in when you say “enough.” At least for me, it’s like there’s a sigh in my soul. Aahh . . . it can be enough.

Let it be enough for now. Not forever. This is not procrastination. It’s a choice to let whatever I’ve done, whatever I know, whatever I am, to just be enough, just for now.

In this moment, I can choose to be enough, to have enough, to know enough, to let what I’ve done be enough, to trust that there is enough.

You might make that a Truth Focus Statement for your Healing Code: “Just for right now, I am enough, I do enough, I have enough, I know enough, there is enough. I can let where I am right now be enough.”

See what this does for your nervous system.

And let me know if it helps you!

Adrenal Cocktail Recipe

By · Comments (0)
A naturopath friend of mine, Jeanne Wilson, gave me a simple recipe for an “adrenal cocktail” that gives you the right balance of potassium, sodium, and Vitamin C.
 
She says it can play a critical role in replenishing and balancing mineral levels, hydrating, reducing fatigue, and increasing overall health.
 
Since I’ve been drinking this twice a day on an empty stomach, I have felt terrific! I mean it. I can hardly believe it. My head is clear, I’m sleeping well, and my energy level has skyrocketed. Many of my recent symptoms that have been flaring off and on (headaches, cough, digestive issues) are mostly gone.
 
Here’s the recipe:
  • 4 ounces of organic, pulp-free orange juice (not from concentrate)
  • 3 ounces of organic coconut water (make sure there are no other ingredients, such as citric acid)
  • 1 generous pinch of good sea salt
Mix together and refrigerate. Drink a cup 2x/day on an empty stomach.
 
Let me know how it works for you!

Recently I watched a video presentation by Ari Whitten, on “Breathing for Energy” (replay here), which was, as is usual for him, excellent. (I have his Energy Blueprint program.)

Ari shared a number of breathing techniques, along with the surprising news that deep breathing is actually not good for you. Deep breathing does not oxygenate the blood, as is commonly believed. Ari explains the interaction between carbon dioxide and oxygen, and how oxygen actually gets delivered to your cells.

He also explains why we must breathe through the nose, rather than the mouth. Nasal breathing activates nitric oxide, which provides multiple health benefits, including killing virus particles that can lead to respiratory infections.

Most of us over-breathe. Optimal breathing is actually:

  • light (not deep)
  • slow (the slower the better)
  • nasal (breathing through the mouth is very bad for you!)
  • diaphragmatic (breathe into your belly, not your chest)–this calms the nervous system.

One breathing technique he described I started using right away, and it’s relevant to Emotional Inflammation. It’s a form of breathing that, in only 2-3 breaths, will calm the brain out of stress and anxiety. He called it the Physiological Sigh. Think when you’re been crying, and you breathe and sort of hiccup before you exhale. That’s a Physiological Sigh.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. You will take two breaths. The first is a near maximal inhale (remember: light, slow, nasal, and belly). The second inhale is one short, quick breath.
  2. Exhale a long, slow exhale through the mouth (the sigh).

That’s it!

I am grateful to have attended this webinar, especially at the end of this stressful week. The breathing techniques made a big difference. I hope you can take some time to watch the replay. Ari shared other techniques, and also taught how to increase our CO2 levels (this is a good thing) and eliminate over-breathing.

Are you bothered by what’s going on in the world?

Perhaps you, like me, find that Emotional Inflammation flares strongly. (Emotional Inflammation: a state “not unlike post-traumatic stress disorder, but one that stems from simply living in today’s tumultuous world.”) The mass shooting in a Texas grammar school–horrific in itself—only added to the other troubling ongoing world events. War in Ukraine. Warnings of impending food shortages, and maybe another pandemic. Etc. etc.

And, to top it all off, four events springing up in my personal life underscored that evil’s presence is everywhere.

It can make you feel powerless. Hopeless. Paralyzed with fear.

When I feel powerless, I connect and align with the Source of all power. I prayed.

As I prayed, an idea formed.

What if I created an opportunity for people of faith to unite in prayer, while doing a Coach-Guided Healing Code, to push back the darkness?

I’ve already witnessed, again and again, the power of combined intention.

I’ve already seen that there is one prayer God always seemed to answer.

So why not unite to pray that prayer, and add a custom, coach-guided Healing Code as we do?

No one has to do The Healing Code part, by the way. I want you to share this with people who might not be familiar with The Healing Codes, but who do want to pray. Those unfamiliar with The Healing Codes will be pointed to resources that will explain it and show how to do it, if they care to learn.

The Healing Codes are simply a tool that clears the negative energy at a quantum level, which I believe amplifies the power of prayer. It’s an energetic technology that makes things manifest in the physical world, faster and easier—like using the remote garage door opener instead of getting out of your car to open the garage door. The frequency-based technology that sends a signal to open the door makes that task much easier than opening the door without it, but neither one is “morally” better than the other.

 Using The Healing Codes with prayer is like turning up the speakers in a stereo system: you need the sound in the first place (that’s the prayer part), but then you can turn up the speakers to create more powerful sound (in this analogy, to amplify the frequency of the prayer on that energetic level, so that results in the physical world are more easily manifested).

The authors of Emotional Inflammation suggest one way to regain emotional equilibrium during anxious times is to direct your energy into thoughtful, deliberate action. That is what this event will be. We will unite our intention, our faith in God’s power, and direct it into the various spheres of life, from politics and government to the educational system to the media and more.

If you are interested in joining this prayer event, sign up here so that I can give you more details. Signing up will also give you access to download the recording, so that you can pray and do this Healing Code again and again.

 

I have been writing about grief off and on over the past two years.

As you know, these last couple of years have brought not only a lot of loss and grief, but also isolation. Even though mask mandates have eased a lot, many places still require it. Having to wear a mask is somewhat isolating. When you can’t see a person’s full face, you can’t connect with them as you would otherwise. Numerous studies have shown that mask-wearing is socially and psychologically harmful—especially for children.

Isolation can also result from the social polarization rampant in our society.

How do we heal these things? Yes, we use The Healing Codes and prayer. But there’s another important component to healing.

Community.

We really can’t heal as well in isolation as we can in community. As we seek to heal the damaging effects of the past two years—not to mention our own personal heart issues—I want to give you a fun little visual.

I live in the Midwest, and winters can be, well, brutal. Last month, and even last week, we experienced several cold snaps. One morning when I went for my daily walk, it was -9 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s -17.8 degrees Celcius.

You walked in -9 degrees?!” you may say.

Yep, I did. The only thing that keeps me from my morning walks is ice.

The secret is to dress appropriately for the cold. I know exactly how to dress for each temperature range.

So whenever it’s below, say, 10 degrees, I wear thermal underwear, a warm hoodie, heavy jeans, wool socks, my osteoporosis vest, a very warm scarf underneath my long down coat, a scarf around my face, and my very warm hat.

And—most importantly—mittens.

Gloves don’t cut it in this weather, no matter how heavy the gloves are.

You need mittens. With mittens, your fingers provide heat for each other.

With gloves, your fingers are separated.

With all this regalia, the only thing that was cold were my thumbs.

The thumbs that were on their own, apart from the other fingers.

You get the analogy?

Together, like my fingers in a mitten, we can “keep each other warm.” Isolated, like my poor thumbs in the mitten, or my fingers in a glove, we “get cold.”

Special Invitation to Heal Together

I want to invite you to a special way to heal together: my Healing Hearts Circle.

The Healing Hearts Circle is a great way to “heal together,” because of this phenomenon of group synergy and what is called the morphogenetic effect. (If you’re into science, here is a fascinating explanation of the morphogenetic field by Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, with amazing videos of how it works.)

Basically, when we get connected to each other through the group and the coach-guided Healing Code I give, every time one person does the Code for him/herself, everyone else benefits as well. In that way the healing effects are amplified.

(And don’t worry about “taking on their energy”; the way I set it up, the connection is through the shared morphogenetic field generated by the custom Code, not each other’s energy.)

People in the group who attend the live call have also said they benefit from hearing me coach the other members. They can relate to other members’ issues and gain insights into their own.

Find out more at http://healingheartscircle.com. I have a special going on: the first month is only $50, so you can try it out at a 60% discount.
