Being human means feeling emotions. (E) motion = energy in motion. To stay healthy, let emotional energy wash through you like a wave. Do not hold on, resist or deny the energy. Welcome it as a response to life and let it move through by expressing it in the moment it arises.
You may argue that there are negative emotions that should not be expressed. From our early childhood, we have been taught to be nice and polite. So the idea of expressing all our so-called negative emotions seems foreign and impossible. We fear disapproval or abandonment if we dare speak the truth about what we are thinking or feeling.
Instead of thinking of emotions as either negative or positive, let us view them as energy that moves at different speeds. We call the speed of moving energy its frequency. If energy moves at a slow speed, it has a low frequency. If it moves at a faster speed, it has a higher frequency.
The emotional energy of anger, for example, moves slowly and has a low frequency and it does not feel good in our body. When anger arises and you do not express it, it gets trapped in your body and affects you physically and mentally. If you do not express your emotions, they start accumulating in and around your body.
You may not feel them all the time, but these accumulated emotions can burst out from you during stressful times. Often these accumulated toxic feelings change your genetic structure, causing illness and toxic thinking.
Approximately 1.75 million individuals in the United States suffer from macular degeneration—the leading cause of blindness in older adults. As the population ages, the prevalence of this disorder is going to grow and with that, treatment and prevention methods need to keep pace. In an effort to stay ahead of the curve, scientists are suggesting that including spinach in your diet could protect your eyes from the changes that cause macular degeneration.
The disorder is caused by a “progressive deterioration of a region that nourishes the retina, known as the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE).” This deterioration causes the retina itself to deteriorate and leads to difficulty focuses and, in the worst cases, blindness. Keeping the RPE healthy, therefore, can reduce the risk of macular degeneration. This is where spinach comes in.
Spinach contains lutein – a compound that combines with zeaxanthin within the body to create a macular pigment—an oily, yellow substance that coats the retina. This pigment nourishes the retina and prevents deterioration common in macular degeneration.
Lutein also protects the eyes from free radical damage by helping filter out damaging blue light and ultraviolet light.
One study, a 10-year clinical trial from the National Eye Institute, found that antioxidants themselves could reduce the progression of macular degeneration by 28% over a five year period. Another found that just three servings of spinach per week could reduce the risk of macular degeneration by 43%.

As you have already noticed, the passage of the light through your entire body was nothing if not profound, and it has left many of you feeling as if floundering in its wake. Do not fret dear ones, as all of this is only proof positive that you did indeed allow these healing powers from above to touch your inner sanctum, and as such, much will be altered within you all over a very short period of time. But again, as the physical body has been used to perceive change as something to be avoided, it will once again try to hold back and preserve “business as usual.” But in this case, it will be futile, as now, the most profound wake up call ever has been given to your very core, and as such, every cell in your body will become alert to this call. And so, you will feel yourself affected by the stretching and yawning, and indeed also some rather intense protests, as so much starts to awaken and change within.
But know that this too will pass, as your whole system will soon find a way to settle into this new flow. For that is truly what this is, a chance to enter a more effortless phase, where the removal of many obstacles, some superficial, some more deeply hidden, will allow you to enter the deeper and faster flowing channel of this energetic river that is carrying you all onwards and upwards. But still, your body is not as fast on the uptake as the more energetic and spiritual parts of your being, and as such, it needs a little bit more care and support in these upcoming days than what is usual.
There are millions of neurons lining your gut almost as extensively as in your brain – do you think that might have something to do with your mood, your ‘intelligence’, and your overall health? Sometimes called the enteric nervous system, the stomach and intestines have a lot to say about how you feel, or how you ‘stomach’ emotions in general, as well as how well your body fends off unwelcome guests.
The enteric nervous system is so intelligent, in fact, that it houses entire networks of neurotransmitters and special proteins that tell the rest of the body what’s going down – quite literally. It is so wise, that it can operate distinctly from the brain and spinal nerves, and quite often does. Just think of the last time you ate something that didn’t agree with you. Your brain probably didn’t override a sudden urge to purge. Your enteric ‘brain’ knew to get that unsavory meal out of you as fast as possible to prohibit an even more unappealing outcome.
Did you also know that the gut produces more serotonin, the well-known happy hormone, than the brain does? 95% of all serotonin lives in the gut, not in the head. A big part of how we feel every day is truly related to our gut’s feeling, as it digests through the daily grind, our food as well as our food for thought. In fact, irritable bowel syndrome is caused by an imbalance of serotonin in the gut, and is sometimes called the ‘mental illness’ of the brain. We cannot experience an emotion or think a thought without a biological correlation. The brain-gut axis is deeply moved by our daily emotions.
Two categories of people tend to call me for Medical Intuitive Sessions: those who’ve been injured and/or ill for many years (sometimes decades) with no effective diagnosis and/or treatment … and those people who keep top notch tabs on their health and already know that every physical ailment has a mental, emotional, spiritual or energetic trigger. The second group tends to call very early in their health journey, usually right after their own arsenal of natural remedies and meditations fails to bring relief.
Lately, I’ve received many calls from a third category of clients, and I attribute this to the increased Awakening on our planet. These clients also exhibit “medical mystery” symptoms, but, unlike the first group, they’ve only been ill or injured for weeks rather than years. Unlike the second group, they’ve never consulted a Medical Intuitive or “psychic” before, but “something just tells” them that they need to expand their thinking about these health issues. I love these sessions, because I can feel the gears start turning as people discover how their body partners with their soul in order to bring about the deepest levels of healing. I love watching their upper chakras suddenly light up with understanding and expansion.
Today’s post is a hodgepodge of things I’ve noticed in nearly 12 years of professional Medical Intuitive work. I thought I’d share some common observations and tips that don’t seem to have reached the mainstream. As always, I am not legally allowed to diagnose or prescribe, and nothing in this blog or in my sessions constitutes medical advice. I’m simply sharing what buzzes across my intuition or patterns I’ve recognized in the past decade plus of intriguing work.
Many of us do not have to be “sold” on the benefits of avocados—their silky texture and versatile flavor make them hard not to love. But when studies show that avocado-eaters are healthier overall than their counterparts, we feel justified in our love-affair with the green fruit. And the research may even convince some non-avocado-eaters to cross over to the other side.
Avocado-Eaters Found to Have Better Health than Non-Eaters
According to a recent study published in Nutrition Journal,eating avocados is associated with a lower body weight, lower BMI and waist circumference (a risk factor for heart disease and diabetes), higher “good” cholesterol, a lower intake of added sugars, better diet quality overall, and higher nutrient intake levels.
In other words, while the avocado itself provides many direct benefits, it also helps indirectly too.
The scientists looked at of over 17,000 U.S. adults, 347 ate avocadoes on a daily basis. Of these, they had more positive health indicators than those who did not. The average avocado consumption was about one-half of a medium avocado for women and a little more for men.
Dandelion is a common weed flower that is usually considered somewhat of a nuisance by fastidious lawn keepers. It can grow wild anywhere. But this weed with it’s cute little yellow flowers packs a punch medicinally.
It has been used as a healing and preventative herb for centuries. And currently it’s one of the top herbs being researched by western medical science. Thus far, that scientific scrutiny has confirmed the medicinal value of dandelion, known for centuries by herbalists and ancient Asian medical practices.
The dandelion greens are commonly used as natural diuretics that boost renal (kidney) health. For the liver, you need the dandelion root as root extracts, teas or tinctures.
Don’t bother pulling those dandelion weeds for your teas if you’re in a heavily polluted area or chemicals are used on the grounds. It’s better to deal with commercially sold organic or wild harvested dandelion or supplements containing the extracts.

The very first step to empowering yourself begins with realizing that the society’s economic state has nothing to do with your ability to manifest the job, income or career of your dreams. You are independent of this because by nature, you are an all powerful manifesting being. Your thoughts manifest into things, and the connection you have with the intelligent Universe is profound! Whatever you are dreaming up is what becomes true for you. If the media and everyone tells you that “these are difficult times” and it’s hard to get a job, don’t believe them! You can have whatever you want, and if you believe them you’re just claiming yourself to be powerless and dismissing the fact that you’re always connected to the God Source! Your ability to manifest any income you want is defined by how deeply you realize the intimate connection you have with this unstoppable spiritual force inside you.
Yes, you as an individual are a more powerful manifestor than your wildest dreams can imagine. Truly, you have the ability to shift the consciousness of this planet by doing ONE thing. Hold your attention in a positive direction. By constantly visualizing yourself and this planet as whole, healed, abundant and in perfect harmony, you enforce this change. As you change your inner world, this energy sparks, reflects and eventually manifests into your outer world. You are interconnected to the whole in more ways than you can intellectually understand
Are you ready to learn the secret to creating abundance in your life? Ok, first start by visualizing yourself jumping up and down with excitement because massive abundance is heading your way, then start JUMPING up and down physically every morning. Feel what it’s like to be working in your dream career, getting paid very well and having FUN with everyone you’re working with. Focus on following your life’s purpose, rather than just scraping by surviving day to day. When you dedicate your life to focusing on the greater health and well-being of the planet for the future children to enjoy, you will get inspired. This will give you the energy and motivation to implement these simple steps and attract that personal economic situation that is easy and effortless.
“The only way out for Americans to avoid an extraordinary economic decline in the years ahead is for them to experience that field of inner peace and intelligence within their own consciousness.” ~ Ron Robins
Did you know that there are natural ways to lower your blood pressure safely and effectively? Scientific studies have shown that both ordinary tomatoes and the naturally occurring substance CoQ10 can provide benefits to people with high blood pressure.
Tomatoes and lycopene
One study on the blood pressure benefits of tomatoes was conducted by researchers from the Iran University of Medical Sciences and published in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition in 2010. The researchers found that 32 people suffering from type 2 diabetes were able to decrease both systolic and diastolic blood pressure after just eight weeks of eating 200 g of raw tomatoes per day. The researchers concluded that tomato consumption might “be beneficial for reducing cardiovascular risk associated with type 2 diabetes.”
Indeed, numerous studies have pointed to blood pressure benefits from the regular consumption of tomatoes and tomato extract. Researchers are not sure exactly how tomatoes help regulate blood pressure, but part of the answer may lie in their high concentration of the antioxidant lycopene. A systemic review of four separate studies into lycopene’s effect on blood pressure found that lycopene consumption consistently reduced systolic blood pressure, and also improved cholesterol levels when doses exceeded 25 mg per day.

I was 27 years old, at the start of my medical career and expecting my first child, when the neurologist confirmed what the first clinician had suspected – the tremor I had been experiencing over the preceding year was Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease, a progressive neurodegenerative disease for which there is no cure.
The diagnosis was made and my dance with denial, fear, anger and secrecy began, one that lasted almost a decade. Thoughts of disability and helplessness eventually turned to hope and optimism but the transformation was a painful and difficult process.
My story however is not unique. Each of us is challenged in some way, be it in our health, our finances, our occupations or our interpersonal relationships. I would like to share with you what my particular journey has taught me.
When a stressful life issue arises, “Why me?” is a natural yet futile question. After all, why not you or me? We are never challenged with more than we can bear.
There are life lessons in every circumstance joyous or otherwise. Whether it seems fair or not, obstacles present themselves for a reason and our life journeys play out exactly as they should. Without the experiences and introspection that these difficulties bring, we cannot evolve.
Recognize that within you lies great inner power – your ability to choose your reaction to any given set of circumstances. How you face the challenges that come your way is truly yours to determine. And in that moment of choice is your true strength, to determine your life experience, which moves you from a position of helplessness to one of empowerment. By recognizing this truth, any obstacle will not defeat you as you may initially believe but instead may be the very element that causes you to thrive.
As you have already ascertained, these last few days have been nothing if not intense, and even if they in many ways may have left you feeling weaker in the flesh, you will also sense that your spirit has lifted in more ways than one. For you are made of sturdy stuff indeed, but as yet, your physical body has a hard time coming to the same conclusion. And rightly so, for within is where the changes occur, and as such, your flesh and bones may still feel as if they are at times being torn apart. But they are not, and neither are you, as what is occurring is such a monumental rewiring and rearranging it will leave you all feel more than a little bit worn and torn and the end of it. But contrary to assumption, you are not being torn down, you are only being fortified in every way, and as such, once again the symptoms will mask the true purpose behind all of these goings on.
For you have come here to conquer, dear ones, but first of all you must conquer your own doubts as to what abilities you may have for stepping out and declaring yourselves to be the new rulers of the world. For that is indeed exactly what you are, but as the word ruler still connotes something sinister for so many, let us just add a few thoughts as to what we must mean by that. For in your eyes, a ruler will in many ways equal a despot, and your world has had its fair share of those.
Shot through a legal loophole with the speed of a Major League fastball, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved roughly 11,000 pesticides intended for use in agriculture, inside homes, on lawns, in hand soaps, on clothing and other consumer goods with little or no safety tests, according to a multi-year investigation by the Natural Resources Defense Council.
As report co-author Jennifer Sass wrote on the NRDC website, “Our investigations… reveal a deeply flawed system that has allowed the majority of pesticides onto the market without a public and transparent process, and in some cases without a full set of toxicity tests, using a loophole called a conditional registration.”
How did this happen? In 1972, Congress, in an attempt to protect human health and the environment, amended the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act, putting in place more rigorous testing requirements during the pesticide registration process.
However, chemical and pesticide companies complained about the added health-protective requirements so Congress altered the program in 1978 with two words: Conditional registration. Those two words created a loophole that allowed pesticide manufacturers to skip safety testing and get their products onto the market by promising to complete safety tests soon. That would be like giving students passing grades at the beginning of the school year.
