Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
Logging onto twitter this morning, as some of the work I do is around the positive communication of homeopathy with, well, anyone who is interested, I sorted through the good, the bad and the ugly. Retweeting some of the good, generally I ignore the bad and the ugly though like to have some awareness of the balance.
This morning though, it may be because I was working late and then was woken early - it seems the cat had got shut into a cupboard last night - I assumed she was out having fun - oops - I am feeling less tolerant.
For homeopath friends, in case you find it useful - I usually have a bless and block attitude*. They can't know what they don't know, and most of them, I believe think they're doing the right thing (I'll not start on the ones who appear to be paid to do what they're doing and destroying lives in the process for now). But today, enough.
Here's a selection below of this morning's joy:
What I realised straight after my mental grumble was how grateful I am that we have films such as Magic Pills (and last year I also hosted Just One Drop) that we can begin to redress the balance with. If this is what people are hearing, reading, all the time, why wouldn't they look strangely at you when you say you're a homeopath?
I've done a U-turn from being worried someone might criticise what I do, to welcoming the opportunity to discuss it. There is SO much mis-information out there. So much is spread by mainstream media - to be honest it makes me question everything that we're told. I see what they say about what I see happening in front of me with my own eyes, and wonder how it can be distorted so much. Are we just being manipulated about everything? I hope not but fear the truth may be being maligned about much. I am glad to offer my view, having experienced it, for myself, for others, and very effectively so.
Bored of the BS too? I'd suggest you might consider putting on an information event, attending a wellbeing fair, share positive information about homeopathy wherever you can - or think about (perhaps just do it!) putting on a screening of Magic Pills or Just One Drop for your community. I hosted the films in a community cinema near where I live, most recently Magic Pills at the start of June 2018, and on Saturday I will be sharing my first Magic Pills screening at home with friends and friends I've not met yet (or met only briefly). My plan is to do another in October/November time for others who wanted to come to either June or Saturday's showing that hadn't been able to make it along.
I'm excited about sharing it. And there'll be cake.
Cake disclaimer - it may be this banoffee nut butter ice cream cake, or this one not the berry one pictured. Or it might be. Can't decide. Anyway, at least I know what the film will be. It'll be great. I am in huge admiration of the work Ananda More has created here, and each time I watch it I spot more cleverness. It's definitely a watch it 2-3 times to really appreciate it kind of a film. Though the first time I was impressed, further watching has impressed me even more.
www.magicpillsmovie.com/host-screening if you'd like to host your own film event. I strongly recommend it - so much that I've nearly shown it twice (will be aiming for three after Saturday!).
* My bless and block method was largely influenced by Pierre Pradervand's. It's probably worth you reading it more than me explaining it - it's been so very helpful to me getting through trickier times, and to many clients that I've suggested it to.
I had this question recently and it's inspired me to write a few words (I hope just a few as I want to write about yesterday's seminar too and I've honestly got loads to sort today... can't just sit and write all day. Though I think I would quite like to. Anyway...).
I am likely to always say yes to this question. If there's a query at all, I think it's worth checking it out. I am not here to diagnose, to treat a specific complaint (though many a time a specific complaint may go away), and it's important to me that I work as a part of a team. I am not a doctor, nor have I medical training. We shared some classes with medics at uni doing my degree but it was not a medical degree. I don't do everything. I do homeopathy. I do removal of obstacles to cure where I can. I do lifestyle advice. I do common sense. But I do not diagnose. I do not have the fancy amazing equipment that is available with the health service. Or any idea of how to use it. So go, get a diagnosis, take an informed choice. Research. Decide. And I'll happily help where I can with what I can do.
I'm a Homeopath working in the Skipton (North Yorkshire) area. I am also able to offer food intolerance testing using Kinesiology and advice around diet and lifestyle.
