The Spiritual Body: Unconscious Wiring for Your Mission

The Spiritual Body: Unconscious Wiring for Your Mission

About 5 years ago I would have never written this blog post. Our spiritual body is still being discovered and more information is becoming readily available. The great leaps and bounds Quantum Physics has been making is allowing discussions around the Spiritual body. The Spiritual body is also known and the Quantum body.

Our Spiritual body is our connection to all things. This ranges from the earth, to humanity, all the creatures on the planet, timing, and to the divine. When I say divine feel free to insert God, the universe, higher self, etc.  Your spiritual body has nothing to do with religion. It is far greater than the exoteric teachings. Our spiritual body provides protection, union, help, and guidance from an outside source as well as from those who have passed on. This is past lives, and generational trauma. It connects us to all that is. It is more the element that no one and no situation stands alone, that there is no one fault, that we are all connected, and that it always takes more than one body to create all that exists in life.

Through our spiritual body we connect to the collective conscious and UNCONSCIOUS. I learned to work with the spiritual body through ritual and esoteric teachings using the universal laws as consciousness programs to construct the life I want. The more I aligned to my soul contract or unconscious mission, the easier my life became. The more clarity I gained and the faster everything manifested.

Talking about the individual, accessing and strengthening the spiritual body is a necessary part of health. Depression, anxiety, doubt, and fear run rampant when the spiritual body is cut off. There is no access to a greater source outside onself. The isolation and lack of purpose start to cause dis-ease in the mental, emotional and physical bodies. Your internal purpose is driven through your spiritual body. Those eureka moments are downloads from your higher self into your unconscious mind and then finally brought up to your conscious mind for full integration.

There are parts of your unconscious programming that are so deep that cannot, and should not, be changed. These are called meta-programs. These are part of your divine blueprint. Carl Jung and Carolyn Myss call these archetypes. This part of your wiring makes is uniquely you. Your meta-programs aid you in doing your soul contracted mission. The closer you align your life to suit your meta-programs the happier, healthier and wealthier you become.

At the Bolen Health institute health is defined by being the truest, most authentic version of yourself allowing to serve your highest potential. Working with the spiritual body is mandatory, so you can adapt your life around your meta-programs and mission.

You are uniquely made to serve and create your own version of heaven here on earth. You need clarity around your mission, how to make it come to life and what specially that entails. All this information is contained with your cells and programming. You need to learn how to access the information. You must go internal before going externally for answers. The first step is to make sure your connection to your spiritual body stronger, work it every day.  

Some practical ways to start strengthening your spiritual body is mediation, journaling with your non-dominant hand, breathwork, gratitude journaling, and practicing higher self-hypnosis. If you are interested in higher self-hypnosis specifically, please comment

higher self-hypnosis please”, and I can facilitate that for you.

The other side of the equation is when your spiritual body is overacting on the rest of your life. This is where you mediate 6 hours a day, and don’t take any action steps. Typically, when your Spiritual body is over developed you are in poverty. There are three other bodies that need to be addressed and given some love. You must do you mission here on earth, you cannot live in the Quantum realm, unless you are monk (which is their highest calling, and they are doing their mission).

An over developed spiritual body can look like this as well: Head in the clouds, not turning ideas into reality, a false god complex, a lack of unity between action and behavior, a lack of connection to interpersonal responsibilities (relationships, physical health and wealth, respecting other people’s bodies, paying bills, debts). There is generally a feeling of entitlement and being overly deserving.

Ways to balance an overactive spiritual body: Go do something in the physical world. Pay a bill, do something for your business, help a patient, track your sales numbers or how many people you have served in the last year, follow through on your promises.  Most importantly reduce how long you mediate.

Your Spiritual body is important. The wellness industry talks a lot about mind, body and soul. There is isn’t much talk or action towards the quantum body. We had access to the concept of the soul, and not concrete ways to with it through medicine. If you DESIRE even more ways to balance your Spiritual body, come book a Zoom tea with me. This is my happy place, and I would love to guide you on your journey.

Thought Accountability: Radical Focus on Rewiring the Nervous System

Thought Accountability: Radical Focus on Rewiring the Nervous System

Thoughts are powerful. Thoughts can lead to dis-ease, and they can generate health. Your thoughts control your body and its biochemical responses. Your thought patterns are what pave the 16 lane neurological pathways in your body.

Now that I have your attention, let’s talk about the mental body. Your mental body includes yourthoughts, attitudes, judgments, and prejudices—also how we perceive our worth and value in the world.  All things intellectual is the mental body’s playground.  All our analytical thoughts, how we process information, how we learn in school, and how we use our words are the domain of your mental body.

Not all thoughts are the same, and different thoughts will cause different biological cascades to happen in the body. Healthy, empowering, positive thoughts lead to healthy cascades in the body. I talked more in-depth on the specifics in the biological cascade emotional body blog post. Negative, unhealthy and disempowering thoughts lead to dis-ease pathways in the body.

Your body and your unconscious mind are always eavesdropping on your thoughts. They hear everything and take everything personally. You cannot fake your way around this mechanism. I see a lot of sick people who pretend to have positive attitudes when talking to people. If that were the case, and truly what they believed, they wouldn’t be so sick. Your thoughts are between you and you. Most people beat themselves up and say horrible things to themselves that they would never utter to someone else. Typically, this is an unhealthy motivation strategy, so they make changes in their life. There are healthier and just as effective ways to get your results. You need to start practicing thought accountability.

Thought accountability is taking radical ownership of your thoughts and where your focus is. Are you focused on things that you don’t want to have happen in your life? Or are you focused on exactly what you want to have happen in your life. A good example I hear all the time; “I am tired of being sick”. I believe you are tired of being sick, and all your thoughts are centered around being sick and what you don’t want. Focus on being healthy, what would you be doing if you were healthy? How would you be feeling? What thoughts do healthy people tell themselves?

No one is in your head with you. The only person who can hold your thoughts accountable is you. This is a personal choice with amazing results. Every time you hear your inner critic telling you that you can’t do it, you’re weak, you’re never going to amount to anything, etc. you stop that thought process dead in its tracks. Rub your solar plexus region with a circular motion crossing midline and say “cancel. Cancel, cancel” out loud. Then you insert the positive, healthy, empowering thought by saying it out loud.

This mechanism immediately stops the biological cascade that is hardwired into your nervous system and allows you to start strengthening the new healthy pathway you are looking to build. This allows both brain hemispheres to activate since you are crossing midline and drops you into your parasympathetic nervous system. When you insert the opposite positive thought, you are now activating the new neurological pathway. The more times you do this exercise and keep yourself accountable the better you will feel about yourself, hear people around you differently, and see the external results in your life.

We are simple creatures, and we like to pretend that it has to be complicated. That is a chaos strategy creeping in and illuminates how you perceive value. Value is a mental body concept. If you need things to be hard, and challenging in order to see value in it, then you will use that belief to run your biology. If you see the value in the getting your results in the simplest and most effective way possible your biology follows that mindset.

Taking this out of the theoretical. You can tell how you attribute value by how you have set up your life. If everything is complicated and has a million criteria or steps, then you are running “it has be hard in order to be valuable” mindset at an unconscious level. It is also easier for an outsider to evaluate that for you. They will give you an unbiased answer. Better yet book an assessment through the BHI Virtual Healing Hub and the Integrative Quantum Practitioner will easily enlighten you.

The last piece of the mental body I feel that I need to address is escapism. Anyone who lives in their heads and takes little action has an overactive mental body. Analysis paralysis. You know the type, you may at times be this person.

This is harmful to your growth and development. Well-rounded healthy humans’ balance all their bodies and take action. Living in your mental body is harmful regardless of the types of thoughts that you are having. Refusing to act means you are escaping doing any work in the physical world by hiding in the theory. When I start procrastinating or avoiding things, I have a bunch of theoretical conversations and start playing with concepts.  I see this a lot in the BHI Virtual Healing Hub with other healers. They like the idea of change, and making the changes is where we spend most of our time.

Our education system praises academia and innovation, and there still needs to be action attached to that stroke of genius. Imagine all the great inventors just talked about what they wanted to create and never made anything happen. We would still be using candles for lighting.

Balancing our mental bodies is a choice that every individual person needs to make. I can give you all the tools, AND,  I don’t live in your head with you. No one can force you to take action, no one can change your thought process for you. This is why is it so important for Healers to use thought accountability first. Your results will inspire those around you, including your patients or clients. No type of diet and no combination of supplements, acupuncture, or medication can combat your mental body. Mindset is foundational, not the add on.

The Mental Body: The Biological Mechanism of Thoughts

The Mental Body: The Biological Mechanism of Thoughts

Oh, the intellectual body that is overly educated and what 99% of the population relies on to run their world. I used to be in the same boat until I stopped allowing my overactive mind to call the shots. When your mental body is imbalanced you are making my life harder than it needs to be. Let’s take a deeper dive into this analytical body and action steps to bring this overactive body into harmony with the rest of the bodies.

 The mental body typically over developed in most people. This body houses our thoughts, attitudes, judgments, prejudices, education, how we process information, our focus and clarity. The mental body is classified as masculine and represented by the element air. In the medicine wheel the direction is East. I want to make quite clear it has nothing to do with how intelligent you are, more about your ability to make thoughts and ideas (good/bad, smart/not so smart).

 Through our school system here in North America, we have been conditioned to rely heavily on our mental body. We are taught what to think in school’s vs HOW to think to problem solve and successful run our lives. The education system catered to humans ability to create and explore different theories in any subject. If you ask me how much advanced calculus I use in my life, the answer is zero.

Now the school system is not to blame solely, social media and the computer age left our mental bodies over stimulated and decreased our attention span. Think about how often you scroll through pointless social media posts, or memes looking to numb and shut off your overstimulated mental body. People will spend hours doing this. I highly recommend you time yourself and track just how much time you do spend on social media. I bet you will be shocked. These constructs did give us a wonderful gift, we did develop our mental body more than we ever had before. It is not all bad.

Putting the social constructs aside, let’s get into the nitty gritty about using our mental body in a healthy and productive way. Also, how it relates to our health.

Our mental body is responsible for our thoughts. We have different types of thoughts. Thought patterns can be empowering or disempowering. Disempowering thoughts sound like this: I am unlovable, I am stupid, No one care’s about me, etc. Empowering thoughts sound like this: I love myself, I am more than enough, I am powerful, I can do anything I put my mind to, etc.

For simplicity’s sake, empowering thoughts are healing, and disempowering thoughts are toxic and disease causing. When we have the same or similar thoughts repeatedly, we create a thought pattern. This is important! If your majority of thoughts are disempowering, that means your thought patterns are toxic to your health.

Every thought you have is connected to your nervous system. Happy and empowering thoughts will send electrical impulses down your nerves resulting in the secretion of happy neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine, etc). These neurotransmitters will create a physical cascade in your body. Different neurotransmitters attach to different receptors on the cells. This sends a message, to each of your cells, what to do. Essentially communicating which proteins need to be activated or deactivated. This communication plays a role on which genes are activated or deactivated on your DNA. It changes the mRNA expressions in your body.

If you want a more in-depth look at this, I suggest you investigate Dr. Bruce Lipton’s (PhD) work. He talks about the biology of belief and how our thoughts control our epigenetics. It is well documented at this point.

Our thought patterns are what form our nervous system pathways. If you have disempowering thought patterns, you are going to have a 16-lane highway into dis-ease promoting pathways. Over time, these pathways will form actual disease in your body. When you learn how to keep your thoughts accountable, and have empowering thought patterns running, you promote healing, growth and abundance.

One of the most common questions I get asked is how do I hold my thoughts accountable? It is easy. You need to be aware of your inner critic and train it. Every negative thought about self you have, you stop it dead in it’s tracks by saying “cancel, cancel. Cancel” and rubbing your solar plexus in a circular motion making sure to cross midline. Then insert the empowering thought. Doing this over time will condition your mental body what to think. There are faster ways to do this, and those require 1:1 work with the BHI Virtual Healing Hub.

What is more important is to train your body HOW to think. When you train your mental body how to think, you will change your thought patterns, not just your individual thoughts. Your individual thoughts will change naturally. This is done through the BHI Practitioner training, where you learn to reprogram your brain, and others.

The Emotional body: Emotions as Feedback

The Emotional body: Emotions as Feedback

Do you constantly switch between being “FINE” and flooded with rage? Do you believe that being “emotional” is bad? Does how you’re feeling dictate how you react to people and situations.

Then your emotional body is out of balance. It is ruling your world! The Emotional body has the most drama associated with healthy management. Miss management leads to drama and chaos in your world. I know my emotional body used to rule my world.  The feeling as intense and I would go from being numb or completely flooded with intense emotions and couldn’t process them.

In our physical bodies our emotional body is represented by the nervous system, hormones, touch, water, water release (tears and sweat), water absorption (bloating or clutching from not letting of, feelings of lack, and trying to hold onto/control things too closely). It is also ruled by our unconscious minds. On the Medicine wheel, our emotional body is falls under the West.

Consider that we have over 7 trillion nerves in the entire body. That means when neurotransmitters flood your nervous system with different hormones the reaction is intense. Take adrenaline for example, that rush through your body is motivating, exciting, scaring, nervous, and intense. It is meant to be. Your body is giving you a signal, and it wants you to listen.

We as humans, form effective coping mechanism, through modelled behaviours. I did not know a single adult who managed their emotional body in a healthy way. I saw numbing, avoidance, escapism, over-reactions, loss of control, manipulation, addictions, essentially toxic ways to handle what was going on internally.

If we don’t like our feelings, we shut them down. You may have been told you’re too much, too emotional, or dramatic when you were younger and decided that you would OVER-CONTROL your reactions and numb, repress, and try to escape your emotional body. There are only so many clothes you can stuff into a closet before it bursts open spewing clothes everywhere. This metaphor is the same for your emotions.

Let’s look at the other side of this pendulum. You wear your emotions on your sleeve, you feel everything very deeply and take everything very personally. You are OVER- EXPERESSIVE of your emotional body and it dictates your reality. This is where people feel the need to walk on eggshells around you. You have become emotionally unsafe based on unpredictable erratic behaviours.

The healthy way to work with your emotional body is finding balance between these two extremes. It is healthy to feel all your emotions, positive and negative. You are also expected to have safe consistent behaviours towards yourself and others. The million-dollar question becomes… HOW????

Start thinking of your emotions as biochemical feedback from your unconscious mind. Your body is communicating with you through your nervous system. Your job is to allow the emotions to flow in the moment. Whichever emotions that are popping up, thank your body for the message and proceed neutrally acting on that message.

To illustrate this mechanism; You are talking with your significant other. You get flooded with this overwhelming sense of rage. You are going to breathe into the rage allowing your system to fully deliver the message. The message only last 10-15 seconds before the neurotransmitters are reabsorbed. You are to pause your conversation with your significant other, excuse yourself, and manage your emotions in a healthy way. In this situation do anger work (punching a pillow, screaming into a towel, going for a run, etc.). I personally like to jot down my thoughts for 2 mins after anger work. Then when you are calm and have fully expressed the rage in a healthy way, go back and continue the conversation with your partner.

This mechanism honours how you are feeling, gets the body moving so you can release the emotions in a healthy way, you had introspective time to listen to what your body was telling you, and then you can act on those thoughts in a calm and neutral way. It takes ownership that your emotions are your responsibility to handle and allows you to stop repressing valid emotions.

This trains your nervous system so you can self-regulate and start living in your parasympathetic nervous system at least 80% of your day. You start to notice that what is coming up for you, is about you. You become emotionally safe to be around. You start to thank your body for those messages and move forward doing behaviours to honour the biochemical feedback you received.

Now it is natural to swing back and forth from the 2 extremes at first. That is how you learn balance. This is a learning process, and you most likely never had anyone demonstrate this for you. Be gentle with yourself moving forward.

This is a skillset and set of behaviours. Because it is a skillset and set of behaviours that means hypnotic acupressure can help you find that balance much quicker. Sign up for a complementary session right now! Finding that balance will be the key to unlock the life you have always wanted.

Integrative Quantum Healing

Integrative Quantum Healing

What in the world is Integrative Quantum Medicine???? I had never heard of it, and I studied many different types of healing during my doctorate in naturopathic medicine. It wasn’t until I sought out the top mind body medicine tools on the planet, that I discovered this new arena of healing.

Honestly, when I was studying naturopathic medicine at the Canadian of College of Naturopathic Medicine here in Toronto, I was closed minded. I was science oriented and only looked through an evidence-based medicine lens. My background in biomedical sciences trained me to follow the dogma of the scientific method without critical evaluation of the specific parameters of the experiment and how those critical controlled factors weren’t carried out into real life. I was also missing the bigger picture of the healing journey.

When I was forced to study the art of naturopathic medicine and the energetic side of medicine, I rolled my eyes. There was one course, that stands out in my first year, the History of Naturopathy. This course was taught by an elder in the profession. We looked at Nature Medicine through different lenses: star seeds, indigo children, spirituality, the science of water and how different frequency effect the molecules, how the history of nature medicine through metaphors and storytelling.

I flat out rejected this consciously, yet deep down inside it activated a curiosity to break free from the contrived narrative traditional western medicine has told. How healing “should be”. I knew the system had many flaws and personally failed me on my healing journey.

Through studying and experiencing different forms of medicine I found my groove balancing the energetics with evidence-based interventions, essentially finding the flow between the art and science of Naturopathic Medicine. I loved it, until it was time for me to grow again.


I stumbled down the Integrative Quantum medicine. rabbit hole. I found where science and spirituality naturally blended. Quantum physics provides the mechanism for Medicine and Spirituality to co-exist in perfect unison. Quantum Physics really changed the game of how the scientific method operates. We start using treatment principles like; as above, so below. Your mind controls your body, and without changing the thoughts, just addressing the physical issues offers a Band-Aid. Change the mindset and thought patterns as addressing the physical body.

As within so without… meaning give an internal treatment when using external modalities. For example: Give a herb/supplement/homeopathic when doing contrast showers.

The ancient wisdoms that have been passed down for generations started to make practical sense as action steps. What was once considered theory, now acts a mechanism for existence. Now this applies to all areas of life. Integrative Quantum Medicine looks at this mechanism through healing. Integrative Quantum medicine is a mature look at the healing journey, where the juvenile and egocentric philosophies of practitioners are challenged to grow up.

We are all one, and all connected. The reason you are sitting in front of me in my office is because I have gone through that portion of the healing journey you need to go through AND it is time that I grow again and heal a deeper layer of this same issue. I am aware that I need to do my piece of my own healing in order to facilitate my clients/patient’s healing journey.

The notion that I heal someone is thrown out the window. That I can control or effect anyone outside myself is eradicated. What I want to stress the most here is that there are solid action steps. This is where the blending between spirituality and science comes in. Science is about action and find effective treatment measures and interventions that work reproducibly. Spirituality is about looking that the bigger picture and patterns. So, by blending the whole life patterns with specific actions step and interventions you enter the world of Quantum Medicine.

I could write an entire book on the mechanism of blending science and spirituality. This is just a snapshot into the Quantum Medicine realm. What I really want to know is….  what questions do you have? Where would do you want more clarity? What ideas or thoughts popped up while reading this blog?

The Physical Body: Working with Human Design

The Physical Body: Working with Human Design

Why is that people always come in to see a doctor when they are sick or in pain? This is a question I have asked myself, my patients and other healthcare providers.

In North America we have lost the focus of health promotion and have started to focus on disease prevention. Which tells me that our collective unconscious holds the belief that “disease is evitable if you have a human body”. Which Is a ridiculous notion.

 As health care providers we have an abundant amount of information and treatments to optimize the physical body. This is where modern medicine reigns supreme, so why is it that more and more people are getting sick and staying that way?

In my opinion we have lost the basics to actual regulate our physical form in teaching the basics of how our bodies work as a whole. Our physical body is how we experience the world around us, our ability to heal and where we can access our power.

I have had many clients say that they wanted to get their power back…. Which is hysterical. Your power never went anywhere, you dissociated from it, because you didn’t want to be present. People now think grounding is an existential concept, rather than a set up action steps that has a physiological response.

Most people have no idea how to healthily program their Reticular Activation System (RAS) in their brain so they can attract more wealth, happiness, and health. These practical teachings have left the health care system. They maybe basic, and yet, they are the most effective tools that exist in regulating our neurological, endocrine and cardiopulmonary systems.

Our physical body works in a very specific way; our thoughts will lead to the production of a neurotransmitters, which will cascade through every cell in our body, and will control our epigenetics factors. Dr. Bruce Lipton is the reigning expert on this topic. Now overtime, the repetition of negative thoughts flooding the same pathways will train your brain, and how your body to react. This will end up forming your “normal resting state”.

So if you are have a lot of negative thoughts that are going unchecked, of course illness will become inevitable. You haven’t addressed the mechanism in which illness has entered your reality.

I always get the question, “What happens with viruses?”. Wonderful question. If your body is in perfect health and your immune system is optimized, will you be affected by the virus? The answer is no, your immune system would have taken care of it. Being in perfect health isn’t something that is going to happen 100% of the time, although your immune system will be strong enough that you will be able to fight the infection and heal from the virus quickly.

Now understanding that the physical body is the last body where disease will show up, is pivotal to health and wellness. That means illness has to move through your spiritual, mental and emotional body in order to create illness in your physical form.

Which disease you have is no accident either. The particular disease is a physical metaphor from your unconscious mind. Your unconscious mind is sending you a very specific message to help you learn and grow from. Learn the lesson, and magically watch your physical body start getting better faster than you ever imagined possible.

This view on healing predates Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda Medicine. These are not my theories; I just use them to produce “magical” results.

If we are looking to optimize our physical bodies, why are we focusing on medications and supplements primarily?

Medication and supplementation work and have their place in the healing journey. That is a given. They are not the be all and end all. The lifestyle changes being prescribed need to have regulation of the emotional, mental and spiritual body on top of changing your diet, getting more exercise, meditation and mindfulness practices.

Working with the unconscious mind is fundamental if you want to be an effective healer. Your unconscious mind holds all your health programs and strategies. It regulates your blood pressure, your breathing, and hormone secretion. Your unconscious mind runs your physical body. Going about health consciously takes a very long time, and a lot of willpower.

Going about health unconsciously allows for amazing results while you get to rewrite the programs that are running your physical body. You start to work with how the human body is designed to function.

Working with root cause medicine is not where you think. It Is much deeper than you expected, and a lot easier to work with, when you have the proper tools for the job.

This turns working with the physical body on its head! Good, it should. The way modern medicine is going about it now isn’t working. It’s time to transform and up level this entire industry.

Do you want to go deeper with patients while creating lifelong change? Are you curious how to truly optimize the human body, with very little effort? Then book a Zoom Tea with me right now! Let’s see why our paths crossed

Our Four Bodies

Our Four Bodies

Do you feel that healing the mind, body and soul is the only effective way to heal?  Do you sound like a broken record because you keep repeating “it’s not about changing your diet; it’s about changing your life”?

You’re on the right track. Root cause medicine is about working with more than just the physical body. It is about aligning and balancing all four bodies.

Every time I say, we have 4 bodies everyone looks at me sideways. They have always been told mind, body and soul. The easiest comparison I can make are these assumptions; balancing the mind is about mental and emotional health, the body is the physical body, and the soul is balancing the spiritual body. It is a different way to look at the same philosophy.

The Four bodies come from ancient esoteric literature and has a set of tools and behaviours that need to be mastered in order to be healthy. They are all considered bodies because they have a behaviour that need to be implemented. Not concepts, or theories of how to balance them, actual skill sets. 

The Physical Body is exactly what you assume. It is our body and all that makes it up. Bones, skin, organs, muscles, ligaments etc. We have studied the human physical form for centuries. We have even created specialists for that can tell you all about each system in our body and its individual purpose. When I am talking about the physical body, I am looking at the human body as a whole. How each system interrelates to each other, and how to bring our physical body into beautiful homeostasis. Our physical body is how we experience our reality, and our ability to heal.

The emotional body handles our emotions. It is not an abstract body. This body represents our relationship and feelings to all things. This is where our reality is interpreted and synthesized. How we feel in a situation dictates how we respond. Our emotions are how we interpret the world in the beginning. If left unchecked, we become over emotional and repress the emotional body you become hard and ill. The emotional body speaks through the nervous system, hormones, and water homeostasis in the body. Our emotional body is a bridge between the physical and mental body.

The mental body is about our thoughts, attitudes, and judgements. This is the body of our intellect. Everything we have learned in school, how we process information, which words we choose, and it deals with our focus, clarity and direction.

What we think will come from the mental body through the emotional body, release neurotransmitters and hormones, and cascade down to the smallest parts of our physical body. Altering our epigenetics. This has been well documented, and Biology of Belief is a beautiful resource if you want to learn more. Dr. Bruce Lipton is a genius.  

So what about our spiritual body?

Our Spiritual Body connects us to world outside ourselves. Through our spiritual body we are connected to the earth, the universe, God, the beyond, our higher self. Our spiritual body allows us deeper meaning and purpose. It connects us to all that is in existence. Doesn’t have to do with religion or spirituality. It has to do with connection, and that we are not alone. It really represents the unity between our soul, life, experience and destiny. 

All these bodies need to be balanced in order to live a happy, healthy, wealthy and thriving life. We will have strength and weaknesses in all bodies, and we will favour others. I know growing up and going through Med school I liked to pretend that I didn’t have emotions and spirituality wasn’t for me. Again, I was suffering from anxiety and complete denial that I have been given spiritual gifts.

 My mental and physical body got all my focus and were overacting on my underdeveloped emotional and spiritual bodies. It was only by working on my weakest bodies did I get better. Faster than ever expected. I accepted that I have a spiritual body and it needs to be nourished so I can truly heal. 

The human body and consciousness are incredible. How adaptable we are, and how all our bodies work together in beautiful harmony.

What is important to know is that illness will affect all four bodies. Illness also doesn’t start in the physical body, it ends in the physical body. It will pass through our spiritual, mental, emotional and into our physical body.

In our physical body we experience the discord of illness. To truly heal we need to heal more than just our physical form. We need to heal our thoughts and connect our existence to our divine mission.

I never thought I would be talking about divine missions and balancing the spiritual body. I thought doctors who talked of such things drank the cool aid and were off their rockers. I learned the hard way that I needed to be less resistant and embrace that I was really meant for more. The role of a healer is to do just that. We bridge people into their divine missions to align their spiritual body to work in harmony with the other three.

When the majority of the healer on the planet have the skill sets to do this, we will have a shift in global consciousness, truly use root cause medicine, and transform the wellness industry for the better.

The Unwritten Healer Boundaries

The Unwritten Healer Boundaries

Have you ever wanted a manual that simply tells you how to be the best human you can be? Have you ever wondered why your professional college has a code of conduct? Or why those codes of conducts aren’t complete?

There are so many different texts to look through and none of them are complete. We have different religious texts that talk of how to “be good”, we have our professional colleges code of conduct to handle the legality of practicing, and no one ever talks about the energetic boundaries of being a successful healer.

We have been left to piece together our own interpretation of keeping ourselves safe mentally, emotionally and spiritually while practicing. Would you believe there is an actual skill set that needs to be put in place in your practice? That skill set will also allow you to have more time with your family, make more money, and heal people so deeply it seems like magic.

 This skill set is putting in fundamental healer boundaries AND ENFORCING THEM.

When I first learned of boundaries in a formal manner, I swore that I had amazing boundaries. I was having major anxiety attacks, working myself to the bone, made myself available for patients, and let my guilt control my actions… and  I swore I had phenomenal boundaries.

That is not having boundaries. That is having an illusion of what boundaries are with no tactical skill sets to enforce them, or when I need to put them in place.

When you learn how to properly put in healthy boundaries in your practice, there will be a ripple effect throughout your life. Your relationships, your business, your health, and your happiness will all change for the better. In this blog we are going to look specifically at the top three healer boundaries to enforce in your practice.

1. Scheduling (the time boundary).

You have heard this one before, and not this way. Your calendar is a boundary for your life. Your calendar means that you have set time for seeing clients, time for managing your business, and time for growth and development. You honour your hours, all the different forms of them. This also implies that your practice time is not just filled with seeing patients.

 Now this being said, you get to make your own hours. My business hours are designed to work with my most productive times during the day. I will not see a client or a patient before 1 PM. I need my morning routine to set me up, to be the best I possibly can for the day. I only see people one: one on certain days. This reminds me of a story.

I had a referral from another health coach to help this client get over being stuck. This client was stuck and had tried everything. I agreed to do a Mindset Intake where I look at their unconscious programming. All this potential client had to do was book in at a time I had available. They said they were willing to do anything, and when it came down to it, they kept asking for times I wasn’t available.

The younger version of me, would have made an exception and opened another time slot up so I could see them. The wiser version of me loves my boundaries and knows that it is the client’s responsibility to come and see me when I am available. If they are not willing to shift their schedule to fit in their own healing, then they really aren’t ready to heal. They are just talking about wanting to be ready. He thought that in order to become healthy, it had to be convenient. That unconscious programming will only lead to minimal results and keep them stuck… the very thing they say they want to get over.

You see, by making myself available to suit the needs of my clientele isn’t healthy. It also doesn’t show them how to enforce boundaries. It allows old unconscious patterning to continue and makes my life harder; my work and family life suffer. When did it become the social norm for holistic healthcare providers to drop everything to heal the world?  Why are we supposed to work late hours to suit everyone else’s schedule and take time away from our families?

Time is one of the primary boundaries that needs to be enforced in order to create a balance in your life. You will build the ideal practice. You will be seeing patients who are really looking to heal and will prioritize their health. Welcome to the recipe of your dream practice.  

 2. Responsibility for Change (Energetic and emotional Boundaries)

We have all heard that the patient needs to do the work. It is their body and their life. We have the physical and mental boundaries around the responsibility for change. No one goes to their patient’s house and force feeds them healthy food. We know that it’s their life to do with as they choose. Most healers never got the memo for the energetic and emotional boundaries around the responsibility for change.

When a client comes in and says that nothing as improved…. Is the first thought that runs thought your head a variation of; “Crap… I must have done something wrong… why am I  not good enough to be a doctor?”

99% of healers do have those thoughts pop up on a regular basis. If their client is not getting better than that means that they aren’t good at what they do. This is an emotional response. You are also dropping down into your patient’s energetic field and taking on their hopelessness. That is a major boundary break for 2 reasons.

 Your patient is there to get better. Dropping into their energetic field is breaking their boundary, and you’re focus ends up being on your own pity party. They are not paying for either of those.

 Letting your patient off the hook for not seeing their own results breaks your healer boundary. You gave them an amazing treatment plan, why are they not following it? Who says that change had to be easy in order to make it happen? Are there gaps that need to be filled on changing their diets? You need to put on your detective hat and figure out where the client needs extra resources. Maybe a different dosage or supplement brand. This has nothing to do with your ability as a healer.

 The same is true when they are doing amazing. The client is doing amazing, not you. They are doing the doings and reaping the benefits. You congratulate them on all their work and manage your own emotional and energetic boundaries.

3. Calibrating on patient’s behaviours vs feelings (Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual Boundaries)

 How many of us ask how the patient is doing, and when they say they feel amazing we take that as a sign that our treatment plans are working? How many of us, automatically start revising our treatment plan when they say they are feeling crappy?

 Effective healers know that how you are feeling is irrelevant to your results. Happy, healthy and wealthy are sets of behaviours that lead us to sustained happiness, health and wealth.

 Have they effectively taken out gluten, or doing it only some of the time? Are they exercising regularly? Are they consistently taking their iron supplement? These are behaviors that will lead to sustained health.

 Being healthy also means that people will feel all their emotions. That is healthy. Unconsciously signalling to your patients that being in a bad mood means something is wrong, trains them that to equate sadness= unhealthy. Sadness is a biochemical signal to change something. It is a healthy response to many situations.

 Managing your need to make people feel better in your presence is about enforcing your emotional, spiritual and mental boundaries.

 Your thoughts need to be on what the client truly needs…. Not what is going to make you feel better about them being sad. This reminds me of another story.

 A woman came into my office and started to cry as soon as she sat down. She kept saying she was sorry, and this isn’t like her. She was trying to pull herself together. There are two typical responses in this situation; console her, or hope she pulls it together to do the session.

 My response was to gently question her beliefs. Why are you apologizing for crying?  Who told you that crying was unacceptable? How often do you let yourself cry? Effectively I am normalizing a healthy response in her world. My focus is completely on her gaining awareness of the unhealthy pattern she has been running. I am breaking an unhealthy belief that has limited her emotional health.

 If my focus was on how I felt, I would have immediately gone over there and consoled her. I would have given her advice on what was bothering her. That would have made me and her feel better. That is a short term fix.  Because my focus was on healing her, I allowed her to heal and become aware of deeper issues that run through her entire life. That has a massive impact.

 I then tasked her to change behaviours around crying and emotional expression. I gave her some skills and behaviours to use to bring her emotional body back into balance. Every time I checked in on her I was focused on her behaviours.

 Effective healers always calibrate on behaviours, and fill the gaps as they appear during the course of treatment.

 You can see how enforcing just these three boundaries will make a massive impact on your life, and your patients’ life. Notice it starts with you. You need to enforce your boundaries. You need to change your life before you can impact others. You get to be the change, and it requires a lot less work than you ever thought it would.

The Healer’s Role

The Healer's Role

Do you see a person and pain and swoop in, without even thinking? Are you drawn to people who need help? Do you graciously offer your knowledge and wisdom to those you think could benefit from it?

That makes you a healer. A beautiful and magical healer with amazing capabilities. It also comes with certain boundaries and roles that aren’t spoken about.

The people I work with, and train are healers in the tops of their industries. They are looking to grow and break free from the traditional model of practice that leaves healers burnt out and broke.

I want to share a secret with you.  I received this secret from the very wise mystical healers in integrative Quantum Medicine. Listen closely….  being broke, boundary-less, and scattered is not fulfilling my mission and getting me further from my need to heal the world. That is a sure-fire way to continue hiding and playing it small. It will also ensure that I stay broke, exhausted and have a “legit” excuse not to do my soul contracted mission.

Let’s unpack my previous statement. There are a lot of presuppositions in that sentence, and I want to make sure we are all on the same page before I move on.

1. You have a human body, which means that you have a higher purpose and mission to fulfill here down on earth.
2. That higher purpose is written into your soul contract. You signed that contract, or you would have been given a body.
3. Keeping yourself exhausted and burnt out is an active choice, and typically one made on the unconscious level.
4. You are unconsciously breaking your soul contract by refusing to take care of yourself. Your job is to keep yourself full, and energized. That way you can help humanity and make the impact that you seek.
5. Being scattered, or what I lovingly call “Squirrel syndrome”, is an unconscious pattern you use, to avoid how powerful you truly are.
6. Boundaries and structure are requirements to manage your mental, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being. Which means you must enforce your boundaries.
7. Your boundaries are your responsibility.
8. Being a healer is one of the highest forms of service and needs to have an equivalent exchange of energy. Which means, you have the ability to make billions of dollars in exchange for your services. Embrace the energetic exchange.

Now that we are all on the same page. Take a deep breath and relax. I promise you, it will all be ok. 

Let’s talk about your amazing gifts and skills. I know that you are a phenomenal healer with amazing and heartfelt intentions. You wouldn’t have made a career for yourself in the wellness industry if you didn’t want to help people.

What has gotten lost, as our medical advancements increased, is our ability to take responsibility for our own healing. The mentality that patients need to be fixed is false and harmful. This is where pills (pharmaceutical and nutraceutical) have come to dominate the wellness industry. Those are crutches are hiding unhealthy patterns and bandied solutions halting true healing.

Our role as healers is guide people through their healing journey ensuring that they take full responsibility for their health. That they get better by doing the doings that are designed to up level their entire life. Not just their health.

You must first take the journey yourself before you can stick your hand out to anyone else to help them. Our job is to offer our services and make sure they can continue their path on their own merit. As you up level you then can lead them through on their next step of their journey.

All modalities work. Our role is to know when to use which modality and WHY we are using it. It is our responsibility to work with all 4 bodies and bring those into balance. This is accomplished through different tasks that the patients can do on their own.

In the beginning you will be monitoring them. You will help guide them when they are toddlers learning to the “manage” stage I talked about last week. These tasks will be their lifestyle changes. Those changes, if done effectively, will ricochet through their entire life. This way they up level and gain the clarity to do their soul’s mission.

The role of a healer is far greater than healing just the physical body. It is about bring alignment of all their bodies so they too can go forward and do their mission.

The Healing Journey Formula

The Healing Journey Formula

Do you believe that being in great health is one of the best gifts you can give someone? Are you constantly preaching to your patients that taking care of their health is a lifetime commitment?

Do you stand rooted in their magnificence, and work with them so they can see their own magnificence?

If you do, you have the mindset of an elite healer. You are on the right track to truly make a difference in your patients’ lives and empower them on their healing journey.

So many amazing healers walk into my trainings with the noblest intentions and are at the tops of their respective fields. What none of them know is the literal healing journey they take their patients on. They think it is an abstract concept tell to their clients.

How many times have you said, “you are never done”, or “health is an ongoing practice”, even “it’s about lifestyle changes not diets”? I am sure there are many other variations you have told your clientele that just ran through your head.

Healing is a journey, except the actual journey is never talked about. We all go about health like its an ongoing marathon …. Kind of like hamsters running in a wheel. No idea where the destination is, or how to pace ourselves.

It’s time to change that! I feel, deep down in my bones, if we are going to transform the healthcare system, every healer must understand the journey they are guiding people through, and their role in it. This blog post is going to go over the Journey itself. The healer role will be my next blog post.

So let’s take a little journey together:

Everyone starts in “problem”. This sounds like, “I have a headache,” or my “tummy hurts” or “I was just diagnosed with a medical condition, and I feel lost, confused, and alone right now”. You have heard this from your clients, and I know you have all said something along these lines. That’s because we are humans. We will all journey together.

Now the next destination on our journey is coming into “awareness”. Now we know that we have a problem. We may even know where the problem is stemming from, or which organs are being affected. Anytime we are in “awareness” you have no idea how to change the problem. All you have is the enlightenment that you do, indeed, have a “problem”.

As we continue our journey, our next few steps are going to being us to “new skills and resources”. This stage of the journey is about asking for help and getting guidance to fill our gaps. This is where people reach out to doctors, and holistic healers. They are coming to you for new skills and resources they previously didn’t have. This is where most healers thrive. We love layering different modalities into treatment plans and watch our patients thrive. This is also where mot healers pretend that the journey ends. With them, and their amazing skills and resources. Alas this is not where the journey ends.

As we move forward, we find ourselves at the “Manage” stage in the healing journey. This is where we integrate all those new skills, and resources into our daily lives and learn how to do things differently than we used to. We start out as toddlers, learning how to go dairy and gluten free. Making a bunch of mistakes and learning to laugh about them later. After we have gotten the hang of all those new skills and resources, it becomes our norm.

Which leads us the last stage of the healing journey, “Solution”. This is where we are feeling better. The headaches are gone, stomach aches are things of the past, and you feel like a brand-new person. As a healer I love this stage. I also noticed in private practice this is where patients pretended that they were “cured” and didn’t need any more help. The next time I would see them would be when they ended up with another problem.

Which brings up the last important bit of information on the healing journey formula. We will cycle these 5 stages as we grow and up level as humans. The journey never ends. We get to keep growing and healing for the rest of our lives and then…. beyond.

What questions do you have? What just landed differently in your world? What do I need to know?
