Give yourself permission to just “be”….

Do you ever listen to how you speak to yourself?

negativelabels

Personally I thought I had done a fair amount of work on switching off the negative self-demons yet an observant friend of mine points out I still have “should have” and “need to”, “don’t know enough and need to study”, “am not fit enough to walk the talk to my clients” and “I don’t help enough people”, in my daily dictionary. Not all the time, however these words sneak in when I feel I have let the ball drop regarding how much I feel I should be doing. There is still a cut-off point below which I feel useless, lazy, and not good enough. Aren’t I lucky to have a friend aware enough in his own journey to be as honest with me as I can be with him and even more honest than I thought I was being with SELF.

Time to shed the weight of the past…..

I would like to share with you a powerful visualisation that I did today while out walking. It wasn’t that I had anything specific to shed that I felt I was being burdened by; I think my awareness was just on my ‘back’ today as a friend did some massage work on me today that focused on my back and I got to thinking about all the things that we carry around on our backs.

The devil is in the diagnosis

I lately have begun to wonder if one of the biggest flaws in medicine is that it gives us a diagnosis for our symptoms. We then have something real, to believe in, and build around. Once we have a diagnosis it is much harder to undo it; unless you are one of the fortunate ones that believes in the power to heal and turn it all around.

This concept hit me hard while visiting my parents and catching the end of Greys Anatomy

Be thoughtful, it is often all the difference

Life has a way of getting busy; people, stuff to do, commitments, places to go, work to be done, deadlines, cleaning, you know the drill.

However it is important to let go of the sense of self-importance that comes with all this rushing around and to just be mindful and aware of what is around us. Sometimes those closest to us are hurting, they are lonely, afraid, or need someone to talk to. If we are too busy, we cannot see.

From ‘There’ to ‘Here”

By Andrea Cullen
Nutritional Therapist, Pharmacist and Senior Associate Member of the Royal Society of Medicine.

On Sunday, May 2nd, I spoke at an event hosted here in Castletroy, Limerick; Irelands first water solutions event where we discussed water, fluoride issues, electrolysed reduced water for human and veterinary use, and also water filtration systems as used by NASA to remove all common toxins, bacteria and chemicals from drinking water.

I was absolutely honoured to share the podium with Dr Peggy Parker, Naturopath and Biological doctor; Dr Tim Crowe, one of THE most qualified veterinarians in the USA; and Michael Pederson water filtration specialist and founder of Aquaspace water filters.
We had a packed room in the sunny Castletroy Carlton hotel; and once the nerves flew off me I thoroughly enjoyed my presentation. This is the link describing the line-up for the day:

My goal was not to stand up and tell everyone to drink Kangen water; for a start I am not an expert in Kangen. My goal was to stand in front of everyone and speak from my heart with a metaphorical pair of jump leads to get everyone going within to find their own answers about how to heal themselves and protect the health of their loved ones. So I did just that, microphone in shaky hand I spoke from the heart; and I have learnt one thing lately; when you speak from the heart, everything changes!

Rants on Vitamin D :-)

April 2013

Dear Dr. XXX

I am writing to follow-up on your phone call this week to me as I am deeply upset by the tone of the whole phone call and how it ended. It is not in my nature to hang up however you were bordering on abusive to me on the call and I could see no point in listening to this. I apologise for my termination of the call and if this upset your day; this was not my intent. I do not allow my clients to permit people to speak to them this way, nor do I feel I should be subject to this either. Nor should I do similar to you and we were both going nowhere fast! Saying this, I do understand from where you are coming from, and I would like to explain more about me, my qualifications and my approach. We both have the same issue at heart; that of patient care, research driven advice, and the importance of CPD and qualifications. So yes I understand where you were coming from and perhaps we both could have handled the call better.

I take offence but absolutely understand your remarks about my
