“Natural Forces Within Us Are The True Healers” ~ Hippocrates


Remember the movie Avatar? Where all those blue people were connected by an “energy”? They were able to communicate with plants and animals?

Well, that is not just a fantasy.It turns out that kind of “energy” is real.

Deepak Chopra wrote about a study, where scientists saw monkeys dipping potatoes in saltwater before eating it.

Then they saw the rest of the tribe doing it.Pretty logical so far right?

But get this: Monkeys in different parts of the WORLD started dipping potatoes in salt water.There was no way they could have communicated with each other.

The only explanation was that they communicated through an invisible, “intelligent energy.”

The Japanese call this energy “Ki”.It stands for “Life Force”

In fact, a man named Mikao Usui developed a SYSTEM of healing called Reiki.

And this system of healing uses this intelligent energy to heal people.It is one of the most ancient, profound and POWERFUL healing arts in the world.

Reiki masters can HEAL just by touching someone with their hands.They can also heal people REMOTELY using their intention.

It’s amazing.

It USED to take YEARS and THOUSANDS of dollars to become a Reiki master.

But Owen Coleman, a Reiki Master himself, discovered how to attain these healing powers rapidly.Even in as little as 48 hours.

According to him he already had this power (and we all have it), but did not realize it. And that is why we don’t have to spend too much time learning it.

We just need to recognize it and release it.

Check out his presentation on Reiki here.

Reiki was INTENDED to be learned quickly and easily.That's what the original creator of Reiki intended.Owen teaches Reiki the way it was ORIGINALLY taught. The result: You can attain MIRACLE results in DAYS not years.

Learn Pure Reiki Healing Mastery.

This course is instantly down-loadable right after you make a payment. It comes in a PDF and video format, plus there are also meditations included in mp3 format.

Discover shamanic tools to support your evolution. A no cost online teleseminar.

Life can be quite complex to navigate without a clear compass for each decision we make. With so many variables to consider, we can bog down in the details and miss the deeper meaning of the moment as well as the opportunities for soul inspired growth. 

That’s why developing your ability to access higher evolutionary guidance is so valuable: when you can tap the intelligence of Spirit and the wisdom of a larger field, you can navigate your path with more grace, ease, and heart-centered inner guidance.

I’m excited to be able to invite you to a free teleseminar, hosted by The Shift Network, happening Saturday, May 31, 2014 with one of the world’s foremost teachers of Universal Shamanism, don Oscar Miro-Quesada: Shamanic Tools for Evolutionary Guidance –Accessing Universal Wisdom for Your Healing Path.

The call is f.ree and you can register here.

For millennia, shamans have cultivated ritual tools and techniques for treating the ill, sustaining the spiritual and physical well-being of their tribe, and forming alliances of sacred reciprocity with the natural world. These practices are called our Original Instructions by many shamans.

These practices and skills are not something reserved for an elite few but potentially available to us all with the right guidance, and Oscar will be revealing essential insights on this call.

You’ll learn specific and practical things like:
* How the shamanic art of ‘Magical Flight,’ known as Ensueño, allows you to extend your consciousness beyond the boundaries of time/space and merge with a larger Reality
* A basic approach to reading and tracking Mother Nature’s patterns as auspicious harbingers of personal change and growth
* Three ritual uses of common table salt for psychic protection, energetic cleansing, and dispelling lower astral influences

Register now and if you cannot attend live a replay link will be provided!

Beloved pioneer Barbara Marx Hubbard says about Oscar: 
"Don Oscar is a true master. His ability to attune the sacred wisdom of indigenous peoples with the rational scientific traditions of the modern world is urgently needed for the evolution of human consciousness on Earth. The breadth and depth of his knowledge as a universal shaman is unequaled."

Chamomile is well known as a medicinal herb across many nations. Its use dates back to ancient Egypt, Greece and Spain. It is believed to have been used to treat fevers. Many of us know of the calming properties of chamomile but there are many more benefits and uses of chamomile. Whether you are drinking chamomile tea, using essential oils or supplements the benefits are very real.

Inflammation is a condition that many people deal with on a daily basis in many different forms. Chamomile has natural anti-inflammatory properties. Because of these properties chamomile may be used to help lessen inflammation. Drink chamomile tea to help with inflammation of the digestive tract. The essential oil can be inhaled to help with inflammation of the sinuses and respiratory tract. It can also be used on skin conditions caused by inflammation. Chamomile tea can be used as hair rinse to help dry, itchy and inflamed scalp.

The antispasmodic properties of chamomile can be especially useful. Chamomile tea can ingested to help with muscle spasms, digestive spasms and cramps from menstruation. It can also help with excessive gas. The essential oil can be used in the bath to treat muscle spasms and cramps. It can also be massaged into the muscles and abdomen to reduce spasms and cramps.

Chamomile roman can also be used as an analgesic or pain reliever. The essential oil can be used to lessen the pain and inflammation of arthritis. It can be added to a bath or massage oil. This pain relieving property coupled with the anti-inflammatory property makes it beneficial for skin conditions that are associated with pain and inflammation.

Tea can be used as a hair rinse and scalp treatment. It can also be used a skin treatment and moisturizer. The calming effects of chamomile make the tea especially good for insomnia. The fact that it helps lessen pain and inflammation, may play a part in promoting a restful night sleep.

There are some precautions when using chamomile. If you have a ragweed allergy, you may be allergic to chamomile as well. Do not ingest along with another sedating herb such as valerian. You should consult your doctor or pharmacist for possible drug interactions if you are taking prescription medication.

Chamomile has been used for centuries as a natural treatment for many ailments. It is most commonly used to make tea or essential oils. You may also be able to find it in pill or powdered form. Chamomile tea is great to relax at the end of long day.

As an MD, I’ve watched too many of my colleagues yank out anti-depressant samples every time a patient starts to cry. So on behalf of physicians everywhere, let me apologize for our trigger-happy prescription-writing behavior. I don’t mean to diminish the pain someone who is depressed might experience. But tears are healthy. Sadness doesn’t always need treatment. And it’s important to remember that the pain muscle and the joy muscle are the same. If you can’t feel one, you won’t feel the other.

That said, clinical depression sucks, and if you’re someone who suffers from it, my heart goes out to you. I’m in no way intending to diss anti-depressants or suggest you ignore your doctor’s advice. I know anti-depressants can be life-saving for people. But unless you’re suicidal or otherwise in dire need of urgent medication, before you dose up on side-effect laden pharmaceuticals, it’s worth considering some natural treatments that might help lift your mood.


1.  Consider why you might feel depressed. Sometimes depression is a symptom of something circumstantial in your life, rather than biochemical imbalances. Does your job require you to sell out your integrity every day? Have you been unable to admit that you need to end your marriage? Are you feeling spiritually disconnected or sexually restless? Are you suffering from creative blocks? Is your body failing you? Are you facing financial ruin? Be honest with yourself about what might be off-kilter in your life, and make an effort to get to the root of why you might be feeling depressed.

2.  Move your body. Exercise releases happy-making endorphins, which act like natural anti- depressants. Runner’s high, anyone?

3.  Never skip a meal. Keeping your blood sugar stable reduces mood swings.

4.  Eat a serotonin-enhancing diet. Many anti-depressants like Prozac act by inhibiting the re-uptake of serotonin by receptors in the brain, thereby increasing serotonin levels. But you can increase your brain’s serotonin levels by eating foods that boost your serotonin levels naturally.

Serotonin-enhancing foods include:
Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids (such as wild salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, and anchovies, which are even higher in omega-3 fatty acids than other fish); Healthy fats like coconut oil; Eat a high protein diet, especially proteins high in tryptophan, like free range turkey;

5.  Avoid caffeine, which reduces serotonin levels. If you need an energy boost, supplement with L-Tyrosine (500 – 1000 mg).

6.  Expose yourself to sunlight, which can boost mood and increase Vitamin D levels. If you live somewhere that gets little sun, invest in a therapeutic light box.

7.  Try mood-enhancing supplements: (DISCLAIMER: Although you can get these supplements over the counter, I always recommend doing this under the care of a physician, since supplements can have side effects and risks and can interact with other medications.)

* 5-HTP 50-300 mg up to three times/day — start at 50mg in the morning. Converts directly into serotonin. If you are taking too much, you will feel sleepy or have runny stools. Also usually helps with anxiety, although sometimes it can paradoxically cause anxiety. Must use with great caution if you’re taking an anti-depressant.

* St. John’s Wort 300mg three times/day. If you don’t feel better within a week, slowly increase your dose to a max of 600mg three times/day. May decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills.

* SAMe 200mg on an empty stomach twice/day. Increase your dose every two weeks to a maximum dose of 600mg twice daily. This can be a very effective antidepressant, but it can also be expensive. Side effects at higher doses include GI upset, nausea, agitation, and insomnia.

* L-Theanine 100-600mg daily. Reduce if you feel sleepy. Found in green tea.

* Fish oil (DHA/EPA) 1-3 g/day with food.

8. Meditate or try guided imagery. Meditation’s effects on mood are well documented. Settling your mind can lift your mood, in addition to a whole host of other health benefits.

9. Get your hormones balanced. If your thyroid, adrenal or sex hormones are out of whack, your mood can get all wonky. See a good integrative medicine doctor and ask them to order and interpret the following tests:

Thyroid gland tests – TSH, free T4, free T3, total T3, thyroid antibodies Adrenal gland tests – cortisol, DHEA-S, pregnenolone Sex hormone tests – estradiol, progesterone, free and total testosterone

10. Make efforts to bolster your mental health by being more authentic in all aspects of your life. Too often, we walk around wearing masks, pretending to be something we’re not. We fake it at the schoolyard, in the boardroom, in the bedroom, at church — and then we wonder why we wind up depressed. Consider signing up for this e-course about getting in touch with your authentic self. Practice letting your freak flag fly and watch how your mood lifts.

11. Talk it out. See a therapist, psychiatrist, or life coach and express how you feel. Sometimes just finding someone you trust who will help you work through your feelings can make all the difference in the world.

If all else fails and you need anti-depressants, don’t beat yourself up. Sometimes you can do everything right, and if your imbalance is biochemical, you may need the drugs. But don’t forget to nurture the rest of you too. Depression, like most physical and mental illnesses, is multifactorial and requires a global investigation of your whole health — not just your mind and body, but your relationships, your work, your financial picture, how you express yourself creatively, how you satisfy yourself sexually, your environment, and whether you’re letting your Inner Pilot Light (aka authentic self) shine.
