Bliss Tour Summer 2012: Come See Us in Chicago, Cleveland,North Carolina, California, Mexico and More!

20120616-013814.jpg

We’ve spent the last 5 months touring the west coastline of Mexico, and really healing up after some challenges last year. Doug is completely free of seizure meds and hasn’t had a seizure in well over 2 years! We’ve met new and lasting friends, learned so much about the value of family and our beautiful planet’s gifts, and we’ve taught classes and given healing sessions in some pretty magical spaces. Unschooling is the bomb. Dougie is uncovering his true abilities, and it’s amazing to witness and experience with him.

So, we’re ready to Bring the BLISS to YOU!

Do you long for MORE ENLIGHTENMENT?

Do you want to be MORE in-tune with your body?

Would you like to reach your ideal weight and feel great?

Would you like to feel SOURCE ENERGY COURSING through your VEINS?

Whatever you’ve been wanting to experience– We’ve got something to LIGHT Your Path!

Each Day we help people from across the world find their BLISS. Our clients have overcome everything from autism to debt, from cancer to personal & professional relationship slumps — and so much more.

We have a DREAM to create a New BLISS HEALING MOBILE where we can travel the world and bring our services right to the doorsteps of those who desire. ( if you’ve been following us, you know that our first House on Wheels didn’t make he trip, Bless Her Heart). I can just imagine finally hugging in-person some of the lovelies who I’m BLESSED to work with from a distance every day! It’s already happening! And we just want more. Bliss is addictive like that.

So, we decided to go ahead with our tour even before the new House on Wheels comes into fruition! Why wait? We’re going Eco-Style — which means we’ll be taking public and mass transit whenever possible. We’ve got our bus passes and our plan to Be the Change!

We hope you will come out and see us or even help us host an event in your town!

We begin in Chicago on July 14-15 with some high vibe Reiki Certification Classes, and then we travel east, south and west!

Places that we plan on taking by storm are:

We will also be offering Reiki Certification Classes and several special consciousness and intuition building workshops such as “Working with Spirit Guides” and “Dream Scapes”– uncovering the hidden messages in your dreams and using dreams as a healing tool!

So, if you live in, around or between these beautiful places and want to arrange a gathering in your space, let us know.

The first round of travel through the US will culminate with a week-long Reiki Retreat (All Level Certifications) in a beautiful energy vortex town called Sayulita, Mexico in late September. This amazing opportunity was gifted to us through a new friend here in Mexico, and we just can’t wait to share it.

We’ll have plenty of notices for individual events as they arise and we will continue to update our tour page so that you know where we are.

Thank You For Your Support. We Believe Your Support Means More Healing for the Planet!

Love,

Doug, Gina and Doug

3 Reasons to Trust Your Gut

20120420-103905.jpg

I pulled this article from the “Gina LaVerde” archives at an old website I used to work for called Mind Petals. It was written in 2007. Wow! Enjoy!

You needn’t be a practicing psychic to let your intuition guide you. We all get “feelings” that come from some unexplainable place inside ourselves and leave hints about the decisions we make. Whether they surface as warnings, luck or advice about the future – our gut instincts are more than just proof of our over-thinking tendencies.

How many times have you wished that you defied the logical choice and went with your “gut?” If the words “I just knew it” cross your lips more than occasionally then, I ask you: what’s stopping you from going with your gut?

Sure, we can’t always prove the truth behind these hunches, so relying solely on instinct gets tough.

But, here’s why you need to pay more attention to those little voices inside you.

Oprah Says So

We’re not huge Oprah fans. But the fact that main stream-media covered a topic that speaks to the very work we do in the alternative health world is quite promising. The March 2007 issue of “O Magazine” ran a fairly comprehensive article about the logic behind using our guts to decide our next moves. Citing the re-discovery of the enteric nervous system (also known as the second brain), in the 1980’s as scientific proof that “thinking” happens in our bellies.

We now know that our brains and guts vibrationally communicate with each other through this enteric nervous system. ( and, in fact, DNA changes as a result of this same type of inner vibrational communication). Your gut sends at least double the information to your brain than your brain sends to your gut. The balance of healthy bacteria and yeast in your digestive system aids in this communication process.

Main-stream media continues to half-cover important health topics like digestive health and intuitive thinking. In fact, a recent headliner about the dangers of sugar even provoked my mother to write me about what she’d seen on the news. Over-use of sugar may be related to poor gut health and therefore a botched line of communication from gut to brain, pathogenic candida overgrowth and brain fog. The truth is that most of my clients are suffering from candida, and have a difficult time understanding their gut feelings. But, it’s not just sugar that is the culprit. I’ve experienced more candida flare up (in myself, family and clients) as a result of imbalanced eating and stress. When the main-stream media tells you that sugar is bad, it inspires a frenzy of guilt-ful eating of sugar, disordered and restrictive eating, and stress.

What I’d like to see is a media who tells you what is really healthy. One who tells you about the fermented foods, good fats and super nutrient dense whole foods (not GMO) that help balance the micro-organisms in your gut and naturally allow for the flow of clearer intuitive thinking.

The trick is that when something on the boob tube catches your eye and feels like it could be right, go do your own research in books and online. Gently experiment with yourself. Maybe you’re not clear on what your gut is saying to you now, but thankfully nature has given us many tools for practice. The very act of trusting your gut allows for clearer messages to come through. And, believe it or not — trusting your gut also vibrationally heals bacteria/yeast imbalance.

Our own familiy’s healing from autism, heavy metal poisons and various infections began with a rigorous Body Ecology Diet which worked rather quickly to heal our physical guts by replenishing necessary healthy bacteria and yeast with fermented foods. And, one of the most valuable lessons I learned was that trusting my gut meant I couldn’t follow that diet forever. We dabbled In the healing powers of raw foods and saw great results for 2 years. We dabbled in super foods, raw meat eating, and some GAPS and Westin A Price Protocol. Then, finally I began studying Chinese Medicine and have come to realize that intuitive eating is the best way to keep balance and full health for our family. I now teach my clients how to honor their gut instincts and keep their physical guts in the best shape possible so that they can truly hear what their bodies are telling them regardless of what some guru or book tells them.

Soon, I even learned that I could gauge my physical health based upon how clear my intuition is. After the gut healing Body Ecology Diet, I became really psychic. But, once that work was done, I would experience brain fog if I overdid “healing foods” like coconut kefir or algaes. Sometimes gut balance for me meant eating bread… The very beast that I was told was the cause of my problems in the first place.

Trusting your gut and knowing yourself is an endless journey. We learn more each day, but it’s important to take action on what we learn if we want to see real changes in our health. It’s easier than you might think.

Try this O Mag. inspired exercise:

Have a seat in a comfy chair, take a deep breath and clear your mind (as much as you can). Now, push firmly on your abdomen. Is it soft and pliable, or does it feel hard and tense? If you are truly relaxed, your gut should show it with flexibility. Now – think of your job, your in-laws, or something that you know stresses you. After briefly concentrating on the stressor – feel your belly. The gut tenses up during stress. Doesn’t it?

 

Ancient Cultures Believed in Gut Thinking

In the Western world we’ve got our brains and our hearts to help make decisions. We are either logical thinkers because we use our brains to consider all facts. Or, we are emotional saps because we use our hearts to “feel” our way to the answers. Society tends to favor straight logic because we like to see physical results. But, in eastern culture emotions and logic are intertwined in the gut. We think because we feel and both are of equal importance.

Eastern philosophies have been healing people and keeping them well for at least a documented 2000 years. New science continues to prove the valid relationship between organ function that now can be measured and ancient practices like acupuncture and energy meridians that come from China. The cool thing is all of this can be easily adapted and proven in your own life without huge cost or pain.

Try it and see.

Think about how relieving it would be if you didn’t feel compelled to second-guess your intuition. Does thinking like this cause your tummy to relax?

The Power of Thought Can Help You or Haunt You

If you’ve got a sneaking suspicion that your boss isn’t going to like your new proposal, and you don’t address the subject – you may be setting yourself up for failure. Keeping looming thoughts internalized, without changing the physical situation may cause you to foul on the job just because you are focussing on what you don’t want. We can make ourselves fail by thinking that we will. However, if we address the problem we can let go of negative thinking. If you simply go to your boss with an outline and a few questions just to make sure you’re on track with what he/she wants — you may find out that your presumption was silly. But, you’ll save yourself from causing unnecessary stress.

Have you got a major decision to make right now? Feel your gut as you consider your options. It should soften as you come to the choice that is most comfortable for you. Going with the comfortable choice means that you can put all of your positive efforts into succeeding.

Most of us are fully aware that the holistic approach to healing begins in the gut. Vitamins are made in our digestive systems, our immunity and moods are determined there too. In yoga, we breathe into our abdomens, and our bellies are the core of all feelings.

So, it’s not far-fetched that that little notion you had to call your sister might be right on the mark.

The next time you get a hunch about what numbers to play, or how to help a buddy out of a sticky situation – Listen to your gut. Take the time to feel what your gut is telling you, and go with it.

What might happen if you didn’t go with instinct on some important decisions?

Autism Recovery Videos: Dougie’s Autism Recovery Journey Step by Step

We just wanted to share some of Dougie’s moments of fame over the last  few years. All of these vids are from May 07-Mar 2010, so they began after we were on Body Ecology and Raw Food for some time. I’ll get some more recent ones up soon!

This pic is of him on Valentines Day 2010 with his daily mantra” I Have Big Love.”

I so enjoy seeing how happy  he was through all of this ( of course, once we changed his diet). His autism diagnosis taught us so  much, and we are grateful that he is so much healthier and happier now.
