You’ve Got Healing Power Within You, and it’s TIME We Uncover it, Don’t You Think?

We’re back in Chicago! We’ve had many requests for our special advanced Reiki Classes, and are grateful to be able to answer your call.

When Gina first became attuned to Reiki, she did it to help her grandfather who was on his way out of this lifetime. Little did she know that this beautiful practice of energy healing would bring health, peace and clarity to Dougie as he recovered from autism, to Doug as he recovered from a seizure disorder and to herself in every aspect of healing that she needs.

20120524-164053.jpg

You’ve Got Healing Power Within You, and it’s TIME We Uncover it, Don’t You Think?

The Bliss Tour is back in the United States ! We’ve had many requests for our special advanced Reiki Classes, and are grateful to be able to answer your call.

Our Reiki classes are so much more than just the sharing of beautiful energy healing. We are creating a conscious community of compassionate healers!

When Gina first became attuned to Reiki, she did it to help her grandfather who was on his way To leaving this life. Little did she know that this beautiful practice of energy healing would bring health, peace and clarity to Dougie as he recovered from autism, to Doug as he recovered from a seizure disorder and to herself in every aspect of healing that she needs.

Since then, there have been countless miraculous experiences like helping children heal injuries and organ malfunction from a distance, helping people connect with their own intuitive and psychic abilities, and simply expanding the consciousness of those who desire.

Now, our whole family has been attuned to Reiki, and we allow that beautiful energy to flow through everything that we do. This makes our need for sharing even stronger.

Advanced Reiki Classes for 2013: Earth and Self Healing

Come join Gina and Doug for an inspired adventure into the art of Reiki Healing with a Shamanic Twist. These classes offer a practical take on using both modern and ancient healing techniques to help yourself and others through pain, indecision and illness – as well as heighten your consciousness and open you to your spiritual path.

The year 2013 lives within an energy field of rapid advancement into higher consciousness for our planet as a living being and all of us who live within Her. There are also major galactic shifts that influence our expansion. We are truly coming into an integration period where we are calling back the parts of our selves that have been lost over lifetimes, and realizing that each one of us holds parts of each other. We are One. And, we are figuring that out.

Ancient Shamans and “medicine people” understood how to live with our planet and use and restore her gifts for the growth of all. Integrating these teachings with modern experience, we can learn to transcend our problems by transforming our perspectives and heightening our vibrations.

We have more than just the power to heal. We have the inner power to shift. This connection offers one of the deepest, most satisfying feelings we have ever experienced and that is why we are sharing it with you now. We know that if this class is calling you — you will really dig it too.

No More “Guilty” Pleasures, I’ll Take Plain and Simple Regular Pleasure

The other night a friend and I laughed at how I knew all the words to some obscure Air Supply song. I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for those tunes my younger bro and I sang  in front of the TV while watching “Solid Gold.” Up until 2 days ago, anything 1980’s or chocolate, or crocheted,  or anything resembling a cupcake were all guilty pleasures. Not anymore. The guilt is gone and I’m jammin with my Trader Joe’s gluten-free vegan ginger snaps– that I am eating sans guilt despite the sugar.

A lot of guilt goes into and comes out of changing to the “healthier” side of things, you know what I mean? But, the worst I’ve created for myself comes from what I decide I want to eat. Once  you dive into learning what goes into our food — from the ingredients to the energy, processing, and scams behind who is making money by poisoning us with chemicals, gmos, and godknowswhat, your higher self doesn’t want to go back. Healthy food makes you feel food. It tastes good. And us smart and savvy peeps have found ways to even make it cost less, prevent and heal illness and give us enough energy to stay feeling young for long.

Coming to Chicago to visit family and  make our first Bliss Tour stop has taught me that I’ve had to let go of a little bit of my  “healthy” eating. That is because ultimately, I have to eat. I have these ideas of what I am supposed to eat, what I want, what I need, what I crave and all of that. But, my experiences here have taught me just how hard it can be for the average person to make these healthy choices. Whole Foods Market is more full of processed and sugary foods, than it is of “whole foods.”  The Farmer’s Markets cost 3x as much as the one in Santa Monica, and the discount organic market has older produce that is ready for the trash.  Believe me, you can find good, organic and healthy options here. I know it. I used to live here. But, living in California spoiled with variety, convenience and price. I never had to shop at Whole Foods in California. We bought everything at the farmer’s markets.

I initially felt guilty for making choices to buy fruit and veggies that I knew were sprayed with chemicals. Our family has gotten  sick for the first time in years. We were exposed to mold. And, I originally blamed that on my poor meal planning and poor shopping decisions.

But, I think the guilt hurts more than the pesticides.  It’s proven  that not only are emotions connected to our physical health, but that our heart vibration is the strongest vibration  we emit. If our hearts are heavy with guilt, that has the potential to harm us even more than what we eat. 

Pleasure, on the other hand… pleasure has the power to raise your heart vibration and actually bring physical healing into your body. So, what if I eat my chemical-laden grapes with the utmost gratitude and pleasure? What if I just enjoy them today because they are what I have? What if I give gratitude for the experience that helped me better understand how  most people have to struggle to get healthy food? It’s gotta work.

So, that’s what I am doing now. It’s important to me  to eat the best I can because it does make me feel my best. But, if I live rigid-style how am I going to help anyone? Diets stink.  I’m glad I discovered my guilt because I realized I was living in a diet mentality. When  you are on a diet you have “forbidden’ foods. This is never going to work in reality.

Guilt is one of those complimentary emotions granted to the good-hearted, bleeding hearts. Believe it or not, it’s one of the hardest emotions to get a handle on. It took me forever to realize how selfish it is to be guilty. How that emotion strips us away from ourselves because it often involves pleasing others. The only real remedy for this is joy — doing whatever truly makes the real you happy.

 

The next time you feel a tinge of guilt coming from your mama, your spouse or your inner critic, try smacking that experience in the face with some pure happiness. Stop what you are doing. Stop right in the middle of doing it and focus your attention on the happy part of it.  Be thankful that you have that experience.

It may be natural to feel guilty. But, that doesn’t mean it always has to be so. You can change your story. You can find the Bliss in any moment. I’m erasing guilty feelings all day long with a simple thought, and sometimes a bite of cookie.

Rock on!

Autism Recovery: autism Undone Undoing the “Symptoms” Behind the Misunderstood Label of autism

first published on healartfully.com may 2007

The system says he’s autistic because that’s how they define environmental toxin overload: It’s not their fault — we must change the system!

To me, autism represents the overload of various toxins in an underdeveloped immune system.

This toxic burden eventually disrupts organ function and manifests itself as outward neurological, developmental, social and sensory disharmony. When the world labels an individual’s condition “autism” –the levels of toxicity and depths to which the body expresses this must be severe. This means that most of us are toxic to some degree. However, with autism, we are often dealing with immune systems that have been assaulted since pre-birth, rendering them virtually unable to naturally release these toxins like the body was designed to do.

Scientifically, toxins can build up through genetic predisposition; diet; bacterial, fungal, parasitic, viral and yeast infections; heavy metal poisoning; pollution; and are often passed down from mother to child during pregnancy and birth. Spiritually, toxins can also build up through stress and negative energy. An immune system on toxic overload can suffer malnutrition (regardless of how much food is consumed), neurologic malfunction, all kinds of allergies and autoimmune problems, sensory issues, and every other familiar trait that is regularly attributed to autism.

Most sources will classify autism as a developmental disorder, where speech, socialization and perception are delayed or seriously impaired. I reject definitions that only speak to the outward symptoms of this condition. Such sources will also neglect to offer advice for curing the autism problem.

Foundations are built on the principle of raising money to support families affected by autism – money that will help them pay for medicine and intervention. Medicine and support to help them cope with the painful symptoms, strange behaviors, and society’s ignorant remarks about their children.But nothing that gets to the core and urges them to change significant things about their lives. Families need to be aware that coping can only go on for so long.Families deserve the hope that their affected children will not have autism forever!

A Spectrum of Poison

The level of toxic build-up is as unique as the individual – resulting in a spectrum disorder. What we know for certain is that inner imbalance equals outer chaos.

When we see an individual acting out autistic symptoms like hand flapping, head banging, spinning or tantruming, – it is often a sign that the body is struggling to ease the pain of these toxins. The body wants to heal itself; and will continue to do so, in some cases causing disease and disorder as a last resort.

That is why, to me, autism also represents a final call for help – and a sign that positive change is on the way!

A person affected by autism often has great sensitivity to the unnatural (foods that have been chemically sprayed or genetically modified and overly processed, air and water pollution, traditional western medications and vaccinations, electromagnetic fields from cell phones, wifi, etc.).

I have personally witnessed remarkable transition when these unnatural things have been replaced by healthier lifestyle choices.

More children are diagnosed with autism as we continue to vaccinate them and add poisons to our planet.We have lost confidence in our own bodies’ abilities to heal ourselves and have let BIG PHARMA take control of how we medicate and prevent disease.

This is why autism was given to us. We have forgotten how to listen to our bodies, and we have traded infectious disease for chronic and autoimmune DISSARAY.

Nature Gives us The Tools to Heal: Each Person’s Needs are Unique

The best scientists support a path toward natural healing and have reported on the dangers of such toxic build-up. However, it has taken epidemic rates of autism diagnosis, (as well as other forms of toxic manifestations like allergies, ADD, and alzheimer’s ) for some of us to recognize that the way we’ve chosen to live for the last century has drastically depleted our collective health.

Conveniences like microwave ovens, and alleged safety regulations that have been placed on our food supply — like the homogenization of dairy and the irradiation of fruits and vegetables are alone causing mass malnutrition. If our food is no longer food, how can we fuel our minds?

As a disorder, autism unravels when we embrace the healing power nature provides us. This includes diet change, emotional and spiritual practices, touch and sensory therapies, and methods that evoke positive energy.

I welcome autism because it will not be cured with a pill. It will not be cured by a teacher or a doctor. In fact it requires a complete paradigm shift from the modern frame of mind.

The Gift of Autism

In order to relieve the pain that autism brings we must also honor its gift. Allowing these truly brilliant children to break through autism, means that we are giving a new hope to the world. Hope that we can finally truly learn how to heal ourselves from whatever ails us. And, as these beautiful minds become clear, these children will be the teachers that lead us into a healthier more conscious future.

Autism may just be a necessary step toward the collective detoxification of our species.

Your Gut. Your Immunity. A Key to Unraveling Autism

A child is born with a permeable gut which allows him to properly assimilate the good bacteria from his mother and benefit from the colostrum in her milk. Body Ecology refers to this as nature’s first vaccine.

This intestinal bacteria and nutrition from Mom sets the stage for the person’s immunity throughout life. This teaches the child’s body to properly respond to illness, by pushing illness out. (TH1 immune response) But, when we consider drugs used during birth, C- sections, immunizations right after birth and the stress endured in the modern labor room – we are not setting the stage for a healthy life with most of our children.

Mercury is Not the Only Problem with Vaccines

Vaccines, besides being loaded with viruses and metals, teach the body the wrong immune response (TH2 response). This forces the body to internalize illness. Thus creating autoimmune problems.

The vaccinated newborn’s gut is not allowed to develop.If the child is then put on powdered milk and soy formulas they begin to form their first digestive problems. Parents may notice this as colic, restlessness and tantrums –or there may be no signs at all.

Since our immune systems are primarily governed by our digestive tracts (colon, liver, kidneys), we find that many people on the autism spectrum begin to reject foods that cannot be easily digested and assimilated.

These foods will vary because we must consider severity and of course, the individual’s uniqueness. Gluten, casein and sugar top the list of frequently rejected foods – all of which are unsurprisingly often overly-processed, over-eaten by the general population and farmed unnaturally. If the person’s system cannot digest these which most of us consider to be food — imagine what happens when you add chemicals, fillers and whatever makes Twinkies last 50 years!

S.A.D Refers to the Standard American Diet.

And, it is sad that so many of us are filling our bodies with “foods” that have no nutritional value.

The autistic digestive tract cannot take the overload. They don’t just get stomach aches, fatigue and pimples. They lose awareness of their surroundings, they suffer horrible frustration and physical pain. They lose their words and abilities to speak their minds. They may feel the need to bang their heads or rub their faces on the wall because their skin feels numb, and they yearn for some sensation. Many children also suffer seizures.

Toxic Behavior

We have discovered behavior patterns that are directly related to specific toxins; such as incessant spinning as a result of ammonia (from protein) overload. We have heard that some children walk on their toes because it relieves the pain of a heavy gut.

We know that often overload of toxins causes mal-absorption of necessary nutrition. And, this results in malnutrition. Any good scientist will tell you that malnutrition and indigestion are the basis of most diseases.When one organ is not getting what it needs to function, all organ function begins to dwindle.

When toxins thrive the true individual cannot thrive.

Moving Beyond the Label

When I hear that there is no definite cause or cure for autism – I hear fear and laziness. I envision a collective ego that thrives on illness and disorder. I envision a system that does not want these children to break free because it would jeopardize their jobs, their beliefs, their reputations and of course THEIR MONEY.

If families identify with autism, they will be offered sympathy, statistics and half-hearted research that will inspire them to hang in there. This frame of thinking allows disease to prosper. Modern medicine profits on illness. By subscribing to the “there is no cure” bandwagon — we are keeping the negativity alive.

We are made to believe that milk does a body good and immunizations protect us.I continuously read about the dispute over vaccinations and how we are still really unsure. I am not unsure. Injecting poison into a baby is a bad thing. A bad thing! And if that poison doesn’t manifest itself as autism, it is likely to trigger allergies and chronic illness.

How long do we really want to keep playing Russian Roulette with vaccinations, processed foods, and artificially flavored lifestyles? One out of six children born today will be affected by this in childhood. And what happens when they grow up? Where do you think cancer comes from? How about Alzheimer’s?

Well, my family doesn’t want sympathy from those who refuse to research beyond the obvious. We are blessed beyond belief to even be in the same world as these children.We just want you to stay out of our healing journey, unless you are going to acknowledge that we are here. We want you to stop lying to our friends who are just discovering that their baby has a disorder which you call autism.

Parents must not be made to believe that there is some mystery behind why their beautiful little one regressed from bubbly to dazed in a matter of months! They deserve to know that their children will function properly in society! We must no longer portray children who are drastically affected by the many poisons that we have created, as some kind of idiot savants with weird behaviors!

If their little bodies were only allowed to thrive in a non toxic world, we would see more of the genius and less behavior.And, that’s why they are going to break through. Because at the core they are smarter than this system. They have the key to the continuation of humanity.

We know that there have been great scientific advancements to a cure. And quite frankly, I am grateful for all that science has done to lead me to my answers. But, there is too much miscommunication about what to do with those answers. The CDC suggests that parents discuss vaccinations amongst each other and with their pediatricians. Well, when they advertise for immunizations on the radio, what’s a parent supposed to believe?

We have plenty of great schools and programs that help. Thank you. We have tried them and we love our wonderful teachers. But, nobody has taught the teachers that there are reasons behind this.

If teachers were aware of the gut/brain connection and how environmental toxins trigger autism, these teachers would be much better equipped.

American parents should be able to rely on their government for the most up-to-date information on illnesses like this. But, our CDC’s list of recommended physicians isn’t very well rounded. DAN Doctors are changing things! Real medical doctors who advocate proper nutrition and detoxification as a means of actually RECOVERING autism are making huge strides!

We are not merely interested in helping these kids, we are interested in completely recovering them. I know that it’s a system, and I place no blame on individuals within the system who have just been doing their jobs with good intentions.

But, if those individuals are not planning to step up for the better of my baby – then I ask them to simply step down. We are here creating positive changes, and our words deserve to be heard. We deserve to be able to reveal the truth.

Their Autism Does Not Exist.

I will not prepare my son for a lifetime of not being “right” inside himself. My son is thriving and will continue to emerge from the mask created by the toxins in his body.His recovery has everything to do with eating food that provides real nutrition and heals the gut from early assaults.He is healing because his parents will not allow his little body to be attacked by vaccines any longer. And, we are not afraid of the so-called consequences.

We know that we are building his immune system to a point where he can prevent disease on his own.Geez, if everyone knew this then we wouldn’t need many vaccines would we?Because after all, it is quite likely that disease will spread if everyone just stops vaccinating, right? That is unless they all begin eating real food, and looking into their own unique nutritional and spiritual needs for balance. If we did that, we wouldn’t need so much medicine. Because disease would be something we read about in history books.

Okay, so I understand the system’s need to keep us sick. But, I’m not buying those little pills any more!

We are moving toward a greater awareness of the consequences of our past actions. We have been given a chance to change things, and I am confident that our children will experience a healthier world!

Healing Earth’s autism: Our Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven Energy Offering

Good Morning Light Workers and Love Muffins. It’s May 1 — time for the magical celebration of energy  healing “Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven” to begin!  Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven is a virtual (from your home) Global, Energy Healing Collective. You can offer a prayer, a painting, a meal, a thought, a walk, or ANYTHING that comes form your heart in honor of this day. Our intention for today is to heal the core of our issues. I’m more excited than I can handle because my life has lined up so perfectly today to offer a very magical, heart-centered gift.

I’m a skeptic, perfectionist and careful chooser of dates, numbers, clients, books to read and the like. Good thing I’m a Pisces because I’m also the most easy going, accepting person I know too. So the type-A-ness really kinda balances out. So, when I chose to teach an autism Undone class today with Reiki for Special Needs families — I so carefully chose the dates and times. I so carefully chose the price. I even so carefully bought my train tickets for a specific date and time (yeah, I know) to impress the best energy I could upon this particular class.

When I disocvered that the class also falls on Beltaine (Beltane) — an ancient Gaelic celebration of purification that takes place at the midpoint between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, I  knew I was on to something good. We receive our energy from the sun and our atmosphere. When the sun, moon, planets, are in various positions it affects our own energy. The idea that ancient cultures have used this day to symbolize walking into a new light and letting go of the past really resonates with what we will be talking about today in class.

Today I Let Go of World-Wide autism for You and for Me

Some smart people will tell you that we are at epidemic rates of autism (autism spectrum disorder) among humans. But, ever since meeting my son again in this lifetime and experiencing his life with him, I have correlated his way of being with the ills and the wonders of nature and in particular our planet herself.

If Mama Earth  were given an expert evaluation I assure you that she’d come out with a label of ASD.  And, not JUST because these labels make money for the system who keeps us sick. But, because all of Mama Earth’s symptoms add up to a toxic overload that expresses itself in  the form of regressive development (bees becoming extinct, more animals being born with birth defects, loss of minerals in soil, loss of crops); inability to socialize appropriately for her age (Mama is at least 4 billion, and her cells (US) struggle to communicate), digestive and systemic organ malfunction (earth quakes, tornados, climate change).

Now, I’m not meaning to imply that these are all BAD things. They are Mama’s way of pushing out the toxins that she has been unknowingly injected with. Mama’s outward expression of war, planetary upheaval and confusion stems from her body’s need to push out toxins and renew herself, She is healing. She will survive with or without us. Her autism is just her message. It allows us to know what she needs. We can either give it to her or quite honestly — she can take it and sacrifice us. As her cells, we are quite adaptable to her toxicity. We can learn to live in an unhealthy environment. BUT, Mama knows best. She knows how it feels to be whole and she wants to get back to wholeness.

Her condition is not a mistake. It is just as it needs to be in order for her to move on to her next phase. When I met my son, and learned that he had autism , I understood that he came here to be the way he is so that people can learn what he and the earth need to heal.

Once I learned that, I no longer needed the word autism. And, I only use it here to help connect people who are affected by the label. But, today I let go of this autism label. I let go even more and make way for a new healed spirit to emerge from the earth and everyone on it. These days there probably isn’t one of us who does  not feel the residual energetic effects of our Mama Earth’s auto-immune disease. It’s real and we know it. But at the same time, we have the power to help one another transcend it. We are not our labels or our faults.

As a matter of fact, we are perfect. We simply forgot that. If we remembered our perfection and the light that we came from, I don’t think we’d want to stay here at this  rest-stop-potty-break planet.

Let go of all that ails you today (whatever you call it)

Please join us in giving of your heart’s expertise in honor of experiencing a mass shift in consciousness. Forget the problems and fill your day with light.

Today, my class is dedicated to this fantastic Beltane healing. We’ll be doing a specific activity (meditation, visualization and art project) infused with Reiki and more! Do tell… what is your gift?
