Embracing Wellness Promotion: The Next Phase in Health Care Evolution

Embracing Wellness Promotion: The Next Phase in Health Care Evolution

The journey of the healthcare industry has seen a significant evolution, moving from reactive disease management to a more proactive stance of disease prevention. However, the current need of the hour is to take a leap further – transitioning into the realm of wellness promotion. This paradigm shift marks a critical juncture in the history of health care, placing a renewed focus on holistic well-being rather than just the absence of disease.

The Reactive Approach: Tackling Diseases As They Arise

Historically, the healthcare system has been predominantly reactive, focusing on treating illnesses and conditions as they manifest. This approach, while necessary for acute and emergency situations, often leaves little room for considering the broader aspects of an individual’s health and well-being.

The Preventive Shift: Stopping Illness Before It Starts

The industry then made a progressive shift towards disease prevention. This approach includes regular health screenings, vaccination programs, and public health initiatives aimed at reducing the incidence of diseases. While this was a step in the right direction, it still centered around the idea of disease – preventing illness rather than promoting overall health and wellness.

The shift towards disease prevention was a positive move, emphasizing early detection and intervention to stop diseases before they start. Regular screenings and health checks became standard practice, aimed at catching illnesses in their earliest stages. However, this approach has also led to the overuse of screenings and a heightened focus on finding diseases. This has lead to unnecessary anxiety and stress in patients.

The Unintended Consequences of Over-Screening

Over-screening can have several negative implications. It can lead to overdiagnosis, where conditions that might never cause harm are treated unnecessarily, often causing more harm than good. A lot of the gold standard tests have negative health implications (mammograms, X-rays, etc) when used on a regular basis. Even a semi regular basis depending on the test. Additionally, disease prevention has unconsciously instilled a the belief that disease is inevitable. It doesn’t encompass the latest research in Quantum biology or incorporate the ability for the human body’s innate setting for keeping people healthy. It is programing humanity through covert fear tactics impacting their mental and emotional well-being.

The Need for Wellness Promotion
Now, the focus is, and needs to be, on wellness promotion. This concept transcends the mere prevention of illness. It’s about cultivating a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being. Wellness promotion is about empowering individuals to take charge of their health by providing them with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to live healthy, fulfilling lives. Again promoting a state where humanity is thriving and living their highest truest potential.

The Role of Individual Healers in Wellness Promotion
Individual healers are at the forefront of this transformative movement. They understand that true wellness is multifaceted, encompassing not just physical health, but also mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. These practitioners are adopting and advocating for approaches that are personalized, holistic, and sustainable. They emphasize the importance of nutrition, exercise, stress management, and emotional health, offering a more rounded and comprehensive approach to wellness.

The Economic and Social Implications

The shift towards wellness promotion also has profound economic and social implications. A healthier population means reduced healthcare costs, increased productivity, and a better quality of life. This approach could lead to a healthcare system where the success of healthcare providers is measured not by the number of sick patients they treat, but by the wellness and overall health of the communities they serve.

The Future: Wellness as a Way of Life

The future of healthcare is one where wellness is not just a goal but a way of life. It’s a future where people are not just free from illness, but are thriving, leading fulfilling lives, and reaching their full potential. This vision of health care is not just beneficial for individuals; it’s essential for the well-being of our societies and the sustainability of our healthcare systems.

The shift from disease management to prevention was crucial, and the journey doesn’t end there. The next crucial step is embracing wellness promotion, a holistic approach that addresses the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of health. This shift is not just a change in healthcare practices, but a transformation in how we view and value health and well-being in our society.

The Unseen Side of Healers: A Closer Look at Their Isolation

The Unseen Side of Healers: A Closer Look at Their Isolation

As healers, we stand at the forefront of guiding others through their emotional and spiritual journeys. Yet, it’s crucial to confront an often-overshadowed truth: many of us are entrenched in a cycle of self-imposed isolation, a byproduct of our deep-seated inability to receive.

The Irony of Solitude in Service

In the pursuit of helping others, we healers often find ourselves in a paradoxical state of solitude. We advocate for connection and healing, yet personally, we retreat into our shells, convincing ourselves that our solitude is merely a reflection of our introverted nature. I like to call this empathic burnout, where we refuse to put in energetic boundaries and enforce the boundaries we set with self. So it really introversion? or is it a barrier we’ve built due to our difficulties in receiving—maybe the underlying limiting belief that receiving is unsafe, or receiving comes with strings?

The Mental Fortress: Guarded by Fear and Doubt
Mentally, we build fortresses around ourselves. We’re accustomed to being the listeners, the absorbers of others’ pains and fears. Yet, when it comes to our own vulnerabilities, we’re often the most guarded. We are always “FINE” or we are hyper-focused on helping others to avoid our own problems. This mental isolation is a self-protective mechanism, rooted in our fears of being seen as less than capable, or worse, unworthy of the healing we provide to others.

I have also heard hundreds of healers tell me they wish they could express who they really are. Talking about different interests they have and their fear as being seen as a fraud, or written off as a quack. We have isolated ourselves passing our own judgements and projecting them on the rest of their world; especially their patients and colleagues.

The Emotional Facade: Hiding Behind a Smile
How often have we masked our true feelings, presenting a brave face to the world while struggling internally? Healers, tasked with being the emotional anchors for others, are no strangers to this act. They master the art of concealing their struggles, only seeking help when they’re on the brink of a crisis. This emotional disguise is a form of isolation that many of us can relate to, albeit in different contexts.

The Spiritual Bubble: A Safe Haven or a Hideout?

In our spiritual practices, we sometimes find ourselves using these as a hideaway from the harsher realities of life. While these practices are meant to ground us and connect us more deeply with the world, they can inadvertently become a bubble, isolating us from the very human experiences we aim to heal in others.

Breaking the Cycle: Embracing Vulnerability and Connection
The journey to break this cycle of isolation begins with acknowledging our vulnerability. It’s about recognizing that our strength as healers doesn’t diminish when we seek help or express our struggles. In fact, it’s in these moments of openness that we truly embody the principles of healing. It doesn’t matter in which realm either (emotionally, mentally, spiritually, financially, etc)

We need to cultivate the courage to show up differently. Admit when something in our lives aren’t working. It’s a journey of relearning, where we allow ourselves to receive with the same openness with which we give. This balance is essential, not just for our well-being but also for enhancing the authenticity and depth of the healing we offer.

A Collective Path Forward
As healers, our individual struggles with isolation are a reflection of a broader challenge within our community. I have trained and worked with thousands of healers, and this is programmed in the to healer’s collective unconscious. By sharing our experiences and supporting one another in our journeys towards greater openness and connection, we can collectively enhance our ability to heal others and ourselves. Every healer that steps forward and does their own healing journey means the collective unconscious programming shifts towards embracing health. It’s a path that requires continuous self-reflection, vulnerability, and a willingness to embrace both the giving and receiving aspects of healing.

In this shared struggle lies our shared strength – the realization that as healers, we are not alone in our challenges, and that by coming together, we can overcome the barriers we’ve unconsciously set for ourselves.

The Paradox of Healing: Navigating the Challenges of Receiving as a Healer

The Paradox of Healing: Navigating the Challenges of Receiving as a Healer

In the realm of healing, a profound paradox often exists: those dedicated to healing others frequently struggle with receiving healing themselves. This challenge is not just a personal dilemma but a global phenomenon among healers, deeply rooted in past life experiences and generational conditioning. The implications of this inability to receive—spanning money, resources, family dynamics, and more—profoundly impact the quality of life of healers on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels.

The Financial Dimension: A Complicated Relationship with Money

Healers, often seen as altruistic and selfless, sometimes have a complicated relationship with money. The deep-seated belief that healing should be a selfless act can lead to undervaluing their services or feeling guilty about receiving financial compensation. This mindset not only undermines their financial stability but also creates an imbalance in the energy exchange fundamental to healing practices.

Resource Accessibility: The Hurdle of Self-Sufficiency

Many healers pride themselves on their independence and self-sufficiency, which can be a double-edged sword. While these traits are admirable, they can also lead to a reluctance to seek or accept help and resources from others. This resistance can isolate healers and prevent them from accessing the support systems that could enhance their work and personal well-being.

Family Dynamics: The Echoes of Generational Conditioning

Family dynamics play a crucial role in shaping a healer’s ability to receive. Generational conditioning—beliefs and behaviors passed down through families—often includes notions of self-sacrifice and putting others’ needs first. These ingrained patterns can make it challenging for healers to prioritize their own needs and accept support from family members.

Isolation on Multiple Levels: A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

The inability to receive can lead to a form of self-imposed isolation on various levels:

  1. Physical: Neglecting personal health and well-being in the pursuit of caring for others.
  2. Mental: Internalizing stress and not seeking mental health support.
  3. Emotional: Suppressing emotions or dismissing personal emotional needs.
  4. Spiritual: Neglecting personal spiritual growth and self-healing practices.

This isolation exacerbates the issue, creating a cycle where healers become more entrenched in their patterns of giving without receiving.

Refusing to Work Through Personal Issues: The Shadow Side of Healing

A healer’s journey is as much about personal healing as it is about facilitating healing for others. However, the focus on others can become a convenient escape from addressing personal issues. This avoidance not only hinders personal growth but also limits the healer’s effectiveness in helping others.

The Path Forward: Healing the Healer

Recognizing and addressing these challenges is the first step towards healing the healer. It involves:

  1. Reevaluating Beliefs About Money: Cultivating a healthy relationship with financial compensation and understanding its role in the energy exchange of healing.
  2. Embracing Interdependence: Acknowledging the need for support and the strength in vulnerability.
  3. Healing Generational Patterns: Becoming aware of and actively working to change limiting family conditioning.
  4. Breaking the Cycle of Isolation: Actively seeking connections and support on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels.
  5. Prioritizing Personal Healing: Understanding that personal healing is integral to being an effective healer.

A Call for Transformation

The struggle to receive is not a life sentence for healers. It’s a call to action—a call to transform deep-seated beliefs and practices. By facing this challenge head-on, healers can not only enhance their own quality of life but also deepen their capacity to facilitate healing in others. The journey of healing is a continuous process of giving and receiving, and it’s time for healers to embrace both sides of this sacred exchange.

Wealth Re-Programming for Healers

Wealth Re-Programming for Healers

In the journey of holistic healing, we often address the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, educational, and sexual aspects of health. Yet, there’s a crucial component that is intricately linked to all these areas and often goes unaddressed: financial well-being. As holistic healers, our approach needs to encompass this vital aspect, recognizing its profound impact on overall health.

The connection between financial health and other aspects of well-being is undeniable. Financial stress can manifest physically, cause emotional and mental strain, impact relationships, and even affect our spiritual and educational growth. Understanding this, our goal as healers should not be to simply refer clients to financial advisors, but to encourage a deeper understanding of the psychological aspects of financial health.

It’s essential to recognize that financial well-being is often tied to deeper emotional and psychological patterns. Money mismanagement, for instance, can stem from unaddressed fears, a lack of self-worth, or past traumas. As practitioners, we can facilitate conversations that help uncover these underlying issues. By doing so, we can assist our clients in developing a healthier relationship with money.

Part of this process involves educating ourselves about the psychological dynamics of financial behavior. This knowledge enables us to guide our clients more effectively. We can provide resources, workshops, or even collaborate with professionals who specialize in the psychological aspects of financial health.

Moreover, we should advocate for and embody financial self-responsibility. This involves understanding our own financial situations, setting healthy boundaries, and practicing what we preach. This also encourages the healers to grow and expand their knowledge in areas that aren’t their expertise by trade, and yet mandatory to be a fully functioning human in society. By achieving our financial stability, we become better equipped to assist our clients in their journeys.

Incorporating financial well-being into our holistic practice is not about offering financial advice but about acknowledging its importance and addressing the psychological underpinnings of financial behavior. It’s about helping our clients achieve a balanced and fulfilling life, where financial health is seen as an integral part of their overall well-being.

As holistic healers, let’s embrace this broader view of health. Let’s commit to understanding the complex relationship between financial health and overall wellness, and guide our clients towards a more integrated and empowered approach to their lives.

Ready to transform your life? Take the first step toward holistic well-being by recognizing the profound impact of financial health. As holistic healers, we’re committed to guiding you through a journey that encompasses physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and financial well-being.

Unmasking the Invisible: Understanding Addiction to Poverty in Seemingly Healthy Individuals

Unmasking the Invisible: Understanding Addiction to Poverty in Seemingly Healthy Individuals

When I say the “addiction to poverty” I am talking about biochemical neurotransmitters that are secreted into the body based off certain behaviours. Exploring human behavior, extending beyond financial constraints. The lack of money, or unhealthy relationship to money is the symptom of something much deeper. Let’s delve into the psychological and spiritual dimensions, examining how seemingly healthy individuals struggle with their relationship to money. This blog post aims to uncover these hidden patterns and their manifestations.

At first, the idea of being addicted to poverty might seem counterintuitive. Every human has addictive behaviours. People can be addicted to working out or social media. I am not talking about the chemical dependency from various substances. 

It’s not just about earning less or under charging, it’s about how you interact with money. This addiction can manifest in various forms, such as an inability to save money. A paralysis or anxiety around investing, despite earning well. The root of this addiction often lies in deep-seated beliefs and attitudes towards money, influenced by psychological factors like fear, self-sabotage, and a sense of unworthiness.

In seemingly healthy individuals, this addiction can be subtle. They may have steady incomes yet struggle with financial instability due to chronic mismanagement or a scarcity mindset.  The scarcity mindset is where one believes that money is scarce or fears its loss, regardless of what is in their bank account or resources in their life. This mindset can lead to behaviors like hoarding or excessive frugality. Another telling sign is the regular indulgence in retail therapy as a coping mechanism, which, while momentarily gratifying, can lead to financial distress.

The way we interact with money is deeply influenced by our cultural and personal backgrounds. Beyond the practical aspects of currency, money often symbolizes more profound, unconscious meanings like power, self-worth, love, or safety. These symbolic associations are shaped by societal narratives, cultural beliefs, and family dynamics.

In many cultures, money is not just a medium of exchange but a measure of success and personal value. This can lead to an internalized belief system where self-worth is directly tied to financial success. Conversely, in some families or societies, there might be a distrust or disdain for wealth, which can manifest as a fear of success or a subconscious sabotage of financial stability.

Ever heard anyone in your family say I would rather spend more time with my family than make more money. Or wealthy families are shown to be less happy than ones who make less? There always seems to be an either or and somehow it is linked to money vs personal values and finding alternative sources of revenue that doesn’t eat your valuable time.

Moreover, the concept of money as a symbol of love and security is frequently ingrained from an early age. Children who observe their parents equating financial support with love or who experience financial instability as a source of familial stress may carry these associations into adulthood. This can lead to complex behaviors around money, where spending or saving is not just about financial management but about seeking emotional fulfillment or security.

Understanding these deeper meanings of money in our lives is crucial for addressing the addiction to poverty. Recognizing how our cultural background and personal experiences shape our relationship with money can lead to more conscious financial behaviors and help in healing the deeper emotional and spiritual aspects tied to our financial health.

From a Vedic perspective, the sacral chakra (Svadhishthana) is closely associated with our relationship with money and material resources. An imbalance in this chakra can manifest as an unhealthy attachment to wealth or an irrational fear of financial stability. Balancing this chakra through meditation, yoga, and mindful reflection can be pivotal in healing one’s relationship with money.

Breaking free from this addiction requires a blend of awareness, holistic support, and unconscious reprogramming. Recognizing the emotional and spiritual factors is necessary to break the pattern.. Identifying your current debts, monthly budgets and credit scores is the first step. Next Coming up with a debt repayment plan for 1-2 years (depending on your current level of debt). Seek Unconscious mind coaches to help you rewire your relationship with money. Engage in spiritual practices gifting yourself how to work with universal abundance and redefining your version of wealthy. Additionally, educating oneself about financial management and self-worth is crucial for making conscious and healthy financial decisions.

Addiction to poverty is a multifaceted issue involving more than just the amount of money one earns. It’s about the intricate psychological patterns, a scarcity mindset, habitual spending behaviors, and even the spiritual aspects related to the sacral chakra. Understanding and addressing these layers is key to developing health and overall well being.

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.

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?
