Hi All! Based on my recent reaction to pollen, I recorded a quick energy routine that can help those of you who are challenged by ragweed! No more watery eyes, sneezing, foggy head or stuffy nose! I feel wonderful and you may too when you try my suggestion on this video. It was recorded quickly on a very windy day, but please don’t let the sound of the wind bother you.
Follow along with me as my Chickadee friends and I create a joyous experience practicing energy medicine as taught by Donna Eden! You can find other practitioners presenting this set of energy exercises on Facebook.
If you or someone you know is challenged by cancer, I highly recommend you consider taking this comprehensive online workshop with Mona Meyer Ph.D. Mona is a cancer researcher and gifted cancer coach who has spent a lifetime dedicated to helping people navigate through this complex journey.

Every minute of every day, the energy systems that support your physical, emotional, and mental bodies are performing all sorts of tasks to try and keep you in balance. Have you ever consciously felt any one of the systems as it does its work? It is indeed rare when we are aware of all the energetic effort that goes on to infuse the body with the power to be alive.
We marinate in energies of the Earth and the cosmos that can be very supportive of life, but at times can also be detrimental. Just think about the moment of birth and all the hard work you did to process all the sounds, lights, smells and other subtle sensations when you popped out from the safety of your mother’s belly. The overwhelming avalanche of energies was there at the moment of birth and continues to be there through your whole life, yet only a handful of us are taught to nurture these energies in support of our physical body.
The good news is that anybody can start energetic practices at any age. Whether you begin Tai-Chi lessons, Qigong training, or Yoga, with practice you will become aware of the many energetic systems which support your body. There are meridians running through your tissues that deliver energy to all of your organs; your chakras spin energies and support endocrine functions; your biofield known as the aura processes what comes in and out of your field; and your inner healers known as the Radiant Circuits, monitor energetic deficiencies and excesses for quick redistribution. You are built for balance, you are created for strength, vitality and joy but you are also built to face the many physical challenges like illness, stress, accidents or emotional triggers that can scramble your fields.
Energetic imbalances can compromise your wellness and diminish your quality of life. But thankfully it is within your power to reduce or even eliminate these imbalances by practicing self-care. Doing so leads you to self discovery.
Simple self-care can start from learning how to breathe properly. Adding a little smile to everything you do can help send powerful signals to your brain to keep your nervous system relaxed. A good belly laugh is like an internal gym for your organs.
In Eden Energy Medicine we explore self-care techniques deeply, teaching people how to maintain balance between all energy systems and how to reap precious vitality from that balance. We teach how to self test to know where energetic imbalances hide and how to correct them. Taking care of yourself becomes a task of love. The benefits of energy practice multiply further by affecting others around you. When we are strong, radiant and resilient, people around us feel better.
Become familiar with an energetic routine and by practicing daily you can live an extraordinary life, repel negative energies and feel in sync with the Universe.
If you’re curious as to what you might expect, here’s a few examples from people who practice self care:
“First thing I did when I woke up were the 4 thumps and the other morning after energy routine exercises I decided to end with the “Connecting Heaven and Earth” exercise. The energy started to pour through me along with the tears of joy down my face. All stiffness gone!”
“One day, on my trip into the forest, I stopped to hug a mighty tree. When I hug a tree, I usually face it and weave my arms around its’ trunk.
This time, I supported the back of my body against the tree to enjoy the sunshine. I closed my eyes. At that moment, the ground under my feet began to move. My body got elevated and then put down. It felt like a breath, a deep inhale and a slow exhale. To experience this sensation deeper, I synchronized my own breath with the earth and the tree. I felt amazed by the unity between the living things, a human being, the earth, and the pine tree.
My body remained supported by the tree trunk. The feeling of euphoria continued. I felt joy, happiness, and tranquility. I had received an injection of vitality.”
“I totally enjoy my personal energy routine and I sleep like a baby. It’s been a long time since…. And believe me, I will continue to learn and grow with these practices… it feels fantastic, and I will share with my friends.”
Spring is here and spring cleaning is a fabulous habit! Remember how well it feels when the windows are clean, unnecessary stuff removed and fresh air sweeps through every room? Your own body can feel that good!!!! This season treat your body as your home and practice your inner spring cleaning. Follow me by tracing your meridians, one at a time. Not only will this help get your energies flowing, it will help refresh and rebalance your body’s internal energy pathways. Have fun and do it every day!
Eye health is important for people of all ages, and we usually don’t think about it until we experience changes in our vision. Here are some simple exercises you can perform every day to help you maintain healthy eyes!
Do you feel suddenly excited about new possibilities? Do you feel like you’re being ‘pulled up’ by the light – the light of spring? Many of us do! Such is the power of spring season which is considered part of the WOOD element in the Chinese tradition.
Before we can really experience the unusual and quick “wake up” from winter sluggishness our bodies will often go through a few week period of discomforts. Many people get a simple cold, some get indigestion, while others can’t seem to shake down a general sense of agitation.
The energy of spring is uprising; excited and moving upward but sometimes chaotic and disturbing. From heavy winds to the seesaw of temperatures, from cold rain or snow one day and warm sun the next, the weather outside can be dramatic and throw us into a state of frustration. As it is with weather outside it is with our bodies inside! We imitate nature because we are nature.
Spring is about speed, competition and clarity. Energy is available for planning, seeing the big picture of life, and clever judgment. After a few weeks of transition life buzzes with creative energy because spring wakes up motivation in us.
Everything stretches its head towards the light. Light is life.
Have you noticed that New Year’s resolutions do not hold for long? That’s because there is no percolating power to support those resolutions. There is no strength to move forward or carry on. But spring resolutions have great power as energy is there to support our ideas and endeavors.
Observe what you are pulled towards. What thoughts keep bubbling up? What desires suddenly well up inside you out of the blue? It is from your depths that a force raises you up and demands action. It may even feel like an inner shout. Things we plan in spring have a chance to materialize themselves sometimes effortlessly. Take advantage of this rhythm within you. It will masterfully affect your whole year so you can reap the best rewards later.
The Liver and Gallbladder organs and meridians are most active during springtime. Remember, your liver performs over 500 functions in your body, like blood regulation, toxin breakdown, and metabolism of carbs, proteins and fats. It also contributes to your immunity from harmful intruders. In energy terms the liver system supports smooth flow of blood and energy. The smoother the flow, the better emotional and physical balance you have. Continue reading “Spring Into the Light!”
The winter season may seem energetically passive and in many ways it is. Shorter days, reduced natural light, cold temperatures and less color all affect us. If you are someone who doesn’t enjoy winter sports and shoveling snow you might find yourself trapped indoors.
Wintertime changes how we feel, what we eat, how we sleep, where we travel, who we spend time with and activities we do. Being tired becomes the norm and it’s easy to complain of lack of vitality, energy and stamina. You may even notice a strong desire to withdraw from your social activities. Our productivity drops and the exhaustion from day to day living can become overwhelming. Yet these are not symptoms of sickness– we are simply in a slower state forced by nature to protect our reserves, to recuperate, to relax and hibernate for few months.
Nature has its way – and it is very persistent! If you do not follow natures’ agenda in winter your body will drain itself from the little energy it has and you will increase your chances of getting sick. Winter invites you to rest and recuperate. Its rhythm has a slower pace. Winter recharges your life batteries by slowing you down.
This is the time to dive into your inner-self. This is the time to be less action oriented and more internally focused. Being quiet in the winter is in harmony with its rhythm. Winter is when I most enjoy listening to music in solitude and when I allow harmonious notes take me into the world of imagination. Before I go to sleep I love listening to the Shakuhachi flute. The frequency of the energy transmitted through the Shakuhachi helps to tune our frequency and brings us to a place of peace and calm.
