I was looking for information on the Mind-Body connection which is something I fully believe in and use the concept in my Hypnotherapy/Mind Coaching practise.  I help clients listen to their bodies and rather than judge it, I guide them to observe the feelings and the thought alignment attached to the feeling.  There is such knowledge to be gained from connecting to the body.  When it hurts, it's telling you to be aware that something is not in alignment.  You're not in harmony with it.  And the cause is found in our thoughts which are found subconsciously. 

I recognize and value affirmations as a tool to re-align thinking to heal the body.  Perhaps you'll find some truth in this article by Mona Lisa Schulz M.D., Ph.D.

The Most Common Cause Of Lower Back Pain

What To Do To Start Feeling Better
Mona Lisa Schulz M.D., Ph.D.

People who experience lower-back and hip problems tend to be insecure when it comes to both money and love. Though they generally have the unwavering support of their families, they tend to have difficulties with finances and relationships—no matter what they do. This is partly because they don’t trust in the competence or intentions of people around them. When these folks are part of something that fails, it’s hard for them to see how their actions played into this outcome but they can easily identify the fault of everyone else who was involved. After one relationship debacle after another, when one financial crisis is followed by another, these folks seize power to feel more in control. The idea of shared decision making in relationships and money transactions goes out the window as these people stop listening to the views or ideas of others. In reaction to constant disappointment, they end up feeling alone, stranded, and unable to move forward.

If you have lower-back problems and you recognize these negative thoughts and behaviors, consider what you need and how you can get it. If what you need is to get healthy, be free of pain, and feel strong and supported, you can reverse the effects of negative thoughts by using the affirmation: I trust the process of life. All I need is always taken care of. I am safe.

Specific affirmations help us take healing to the next level. Lower-back and sciatic pain has to do with fear about money, and hip problems have to do with fear about moving forward. If you have lower-back or hip problems, it important not only to understand your thought patterns but also to practice the affirmations. So, for example, if you have hip problems that have to do with fear of making major decisions, use the affirmation: I am in perfect balance. I move forward in life with ease and joy at every age.

If you have sciatica that stems from being highly self-critical and fearful of the future, the affirmation would be I move into my greater good. My good is everywhere, and I am secure and safe.
As with the health of every body part, the important thing to focus on here is balance. If you suffer from lower-back or hip pain, it’s time to look at your relationship both with yourself and with the people around you. Honestly assess your life and make some changes. Do you get support from your family that you’re not getting elsewhere? Notice where you are getting support and openly acknowledge it and have gratitude for it. Do you tend to always blame others when things go wrong? Try to see the whole picture and see whether you are doing something that might be contributing to the problem. Do you feel out of control when it comes to finances? Look closely at any financial downfalls and try to pinpoint where things shifted from good to bad.

Your goal is to adopt a new view of the world. To really figure out what’s going wrong in your relationships and finances, you must take a big-picture look at the reality of both. And to do this, you need to get a grasp of your emotions, be able to identify and address them.

The most powerful practices you can do to rebalance your life involve meditation and mindfulness. While those who are prone to reproductive issues need to use these practices to slow down and recognize the beauty in the world, if you have lower-back and hip pain, you need to get a handle on your emotions. Meditation teaches you to observe and describe, but not judge, your emotions while you’re experiencing them. You will come to know that emotions are not reality, which means that they will not have so much power over you. Eventually, after practicing mindfulness and meditation, you will be able to detach from your feelings in a way that will help you take a more well-rounded view of the world and the people in your life. You will be able to interact with people in more respectful and productive ways that will ultimately lead to healthier finances and relationships.
Another important step you should take when it comes to healing lower-back and hip pain is to set up time to spend with people outside of your family or direct circle of friends. Widen your network of support. Even if it’s only for a few hours each week, get out and experience life from a different perspective. Perhaps volunteer at a nonprofit organization. Offer yourself to this group as both a leader and a part of a team. This will help you learn how to balance your own opinions with the ideas of others.

With affirmations, a more positive mood, and some changes in behavior, it is possible to lead a rewarding life—financially and emotionally. By balancing your attention to money and love relationships and family and self, you can remove the stressors that aggravate this health region. Acknowledge the negative thoughts and behaviors having to do with financial ability, and love and relationships. Then use Louise’s affirmations to counter the negative thoughts in these areas and establish new thought patterns and behaviors by meditating on the phrases “I trust the process of life,” “I know that Life always supports me and takes care of me,” and “I am lovable and loved.”

Healing happens in layers.  And the deeper you go into these layers, the more you will shift into what you want to be.  Self exploration and examination is not easy from the sense that we run from feeling our huts but it's doable if you courageously begin shifting through the mired layers.

Self-Examination at Depth
Going Deep

To reach the depth we wish to access, we must dive below these layers to the deepest parts of ourselves.

There are times when life urges us to seek more. Small changes to our comfort zone may fail to alleviate any sense of stagnancy or frustration, and we may need to examine our lives and ourselves more deeply to find the right place to start. Everything we need for success and joy lies within. But so often, life’s debris accumulates, building layers around our core that makes it difficult to access the truth that resides within. To reach the depth we wish to access, we must dive below these layers to the deepest parts of ourselves.

The first layer can be found in our minds. Our to-do lists and busy work are usually less important than we think, so we must look past them to examine the thoughts that matter most to us. The next layer can be found in our hearts, where past hurts and disappointments can sometimes cover up our vulnerabilities, as well as the truth of who and what really stirs the love within us. We can choose to go even deeper – to our center. If we can go beyond anything has affected us to the point that it blocks us at the gut level, we can reconnect with our power, our raw instincts, our organic yeses. Here, at the core, lies our truth. Our core is our foundation that supports us and what we’d like to build our authentic life upon.

When we examine ourselves to these depths, we are able to find what we wish to bring to the surface and what we wish to let go. When we remember what lies beneath our layers, we can look at what was floating on the surface, causing blocks and pains, and understand the purpose that they served. Oftentimes, it is the built up debris that causes us to go deeper, so we can search for the truth. Go deep, live life from your truth within, and watch your innate beauty manifest outward.

A Load Off Your Mind Hypnosis & Mind Coaching:

Hypnosis for Past Life Regression:
PAST LIVES - REAL OR IMAGINED? Find out for yourself!

There has been a lot of interest and controversy about Past Lives. Even some medical doctors are getting in on this powerful, healing therapy. One in particular who brought the concept to light over the years is Brian Weiss MD, who wrote Many Lives, Many Masters. As a result of his experience there is a new field of clinical therapy that seems to require past life regression. Having met him in person a few years ago, I know that as a scientific Doctor, he too questioned what was happening when his first client regressed into a past life when doing therapy in 1980.  There were too many authenticated facts in her past life to ignore as pure fantasy or wishful thinking.

Dr. Ian Stevenson (October 31, 1918–February 8, 2007) also brought the topic of Reincarnation to the light.  He worked diligently to conduct his work with appropriate scientific rigor. He was a Canadian biochemist and professor of psychiatry. Until his retirement in 2002, he was head of the Division of Perceptual Studies at the University of Virginia, which investigates the paranormal.

Stevenson considered that the concept of reincarnation might supplement modern medicine to understand aspects of human behavior and development.  He traveled extensively over a period of 40 years to investigate 3,000 childhood cases that suggested to him the possibility of past lives.  Stevenson saw reincarnation as the survival of the personality after death

We sure don't know complete why, but we do know it has a profound effect on some people's lives. Many illnesses somehow miraculously clear up after a client finds a past life that held that same trauma. In my practice I have experienced a client releasing a life-long phobia, and another finding a driving purpose in this life that went unfulfilled in past lives. I have observed symptoms of a physical nature clear up, and those of an intense emotional origin be released.

One man released a 20 year old stomach pain after find its cause in a past life. As a result this client also experienced profound peace in his current life. In almost every past life I’ve been privileged to witness, I’ve seen there is a major positive change in the person's life. Some of my clients didn’t come for a Past Life Regression, had never inquired about it and yet, when I asked their subconscious to take them to the cause of the problem, they regressed to the origin of the problem and it happens to be in another body, in another time. And every one of them experiences it as very real and relevant to the struggles they are experiencing.

Another interesting event is when someone "sees" a friend or loved one while experiencing the past life and recognizes hi, beyond any doubt, even though that person is in a totally different body. Usually the client is sure of familiarity. They tell me they just know. A client "sees" a loved one who has died and it can bring great comfort to have a new understanding of the relationship and the death process. In all cases it has been a positive, life changing experience. This is a therapy that is definitely worth more exploration. And with the right guidance, the process is one of truth.  For instance, a client may have wanted to have been someone famous. In reality that is not usually the case. There couldn’t have been 300,000 Cleopatras. No amount of wishing will make you go into the past life of your choice. You must just allow the process to take you where your subconscious mind KNOWS you need to go. It seems to be out of the conscious control of the client. But remember, it is always a positive and healing experience.  The benefit is sometimes beyond earthly description.

The other very important area to explore is the in-between life state (also referred to the Life Between Life state) when one is pure energy.  In every Past Life Regression, I guide clients though the death experience, without the actual reliving of the death, to the Universal Energy state.  Here is where the deeper learning is achieved for there is no body, no heavy energy.  This is where there is access to all Universal knowledge whereby deeper learning about your Soul's purpose in that past life (as well as in this life) the life lessons you scripted into being for your evolution.  This is also where deep and beautiful forgiveness of perpetrators and of the SELF is achieved. And that creates the space for peace.

My belief about past lives? Sure, it could be only imagination, or the collective unconscious memories, or a metaphorical way for the mind to find answers to challenges, or an actual journey to a life that we have lived before. I am always open to new ideas, having experienced Past Life Regression myself.  My clients would say that for them, it was real, not because of scientific analysis, but because the feelings they experienced were real and he the knowledge gained was invaluable. 

Millions of people believe this is within the realm of possibility and there are many books written on the subject.  And after many hours spent guiding clients through past lives, I know this: We don't know all there is to know!  I also know that it has brought tremendous healing to clients whereby their symptoms alleviated and often disappeared due to the release of the energy attached to karmic beliefs repeated throughout their lives.  The self awareness is invaluable in our continued journeys as spirits having human experiences.

Hypnosis will help you access your past life records, and heal the past. One thing you can be assured of is anyone can be regressed, as long as they are willing and open to it.  Regardless of your personal faith or belief, regression can work for you through gentle and relaxing hypnosis. The hypnotherapy process is so healing.  I am a trained Past Life Regression Facilitator, and a professional Transpersonal Hypnotherapist.  I pride myself in creating a professional and safe place for clients to let go and learn through personal experience.  Sessions are 2 - 2.5 hours so we have plenty of time to explore (average sessions are 1.5 hours).

If this speaks to you and you’ve been curious about past lives, come take this journey to experience this life changing therapy.  You can also look at this Oprah article by Dr. Brian Weiss

Here’s what clients have said:

"Wow, what an experience.  Thank you again, so much, for that.  I was extremely comfortable having you guide me through that important life!  I can't believe how much that life affected everything in this one.  Everything I felt/sensed held so much information that was necessary for me to witness to release and undrstand things today!" - K.A., Vancouver, BC

"Just a huge thank you for providing me the opportunity to experience what I did.  Under your professionalism and bright light I felt extremely safe and indeed excited for the experience. I am so glad I finally did this!"  - Beck, Vancouver (Past Life Regression)

“HOLY SHIT!  What a ride!  I can’t believe that after a week since our session, my skin has cleared up! Are you kidding me?  In all seriousness, I do understand how I connected all the shame and self loathing I carried into this life, especially in the life as the Slaver.  I have always felt uncomfortable with any position that I thought gave me power over others and I know that my professional life will improve now that I finally get it.  Thanks, Rosa...should have done this years ago.” – Kevin, N. Vancouver (Skin condition was facial exema which flared with stress)

I saw this on a few Friends' Facebook posts recently and am unsure as to who wrote the original post.  I've heard of this parable for many years. I remember it as "The Cherokee Legend of the Two Wolves" and have been using it in my Mind Coaching with Hypnotherapy Practise for many years.

Regardless of the who is narrating the parable, the meaning is the same.  What I believe is that whatever wolf we feed (representing the different parts of our Subconscious Mind) will grow.  Everything we focus on GROWS!  But we have choices and free will.  Which would you choose and which one ARE you choosing with your 35,000+ thoughts per day???  Listen quietly and you'll know which wolf you feed.

Which Wolf Do You Feed? 
The Practice - Feed the Wolf you Love

I once heard a Native American teaching story in which an elder, a grandmother, was asked what she had done to become so happy, so wise, so loved and respected. She replied: "It's because I know that there are two wolves in my heart, a wolf of love and a wolf of hate. And I know that everything depends on which one I feed each day."

This story always gives me the shivers when I think of it. Who among us does not have both a wolf of love and a wolf of hate in their heart?

I know I do, including the wolf of hate, which shows up in small ways as well as large ones, such when I get judgmental, irritable, pushy, or argumentative. Even if it's only inside my own mind - and sometimes it definitely leaks out.

We've got these two wolves because we evolved them, because both wolves were needed to keep our ancestors alive.

Until just 10,000 years ago, for millions of years primates, hominids, and early humans lived in hunter-gatherer groups that bred mainly within the band while competing intensely with other bands for scarce resources. Therefore, genes got passed on that promoted better cooperation inside a band and better aggression between bands. The wolf of love and the wolf of hate are stitched into human DNA.

Bands kept their distance from each other, and when they met, they often fought. For example, researchers have found that about 12-15% of hunter-gatherer men died in conflicts between bands - compared to "just" the 1% of men who died in the many bloody wars of the 20th century.

So it's natural to fear the stranger - who, back in the Stone Age with no police around, was often a lethal threat. The related impulse to dehumanize and attack "them" also worked well (in terms of passing on genes) for millions of years.

Today, you can observe the wolf of hate all around us, in acts of thought, word, and deed. For example, as soon as we see others as "not my tribe," whether it's at home or work or on the evening news, the wolf of hate lifts its head and looks around for danger. And then if we feel at all threatened or mistreated or desperate, the wolf of hate jumps up and looks for someone to howl at or bite.

While the wolf of hate was vital back in the Serengeti, today it breeds alienation and anger, ulcers and heart disease, and conflicts with others at home and work.

And at a larger scale, with 7 billion people crowded together on this planet - when a flu mutation in Hong Kong can become a worldwide epidemic, when bank problems in Greece roil the global economy, when carbon emissions in one country heat up the whole world - when we fear or dehumanize or attack "them," it usually comes back to harm "us."
So what are we going to do?

We can't kill the wolf of hate because hating the wolf of hate just feeds it. Instead, we need to control this wolf, and channel its fire into healthy forms of protection and assertiveness. And we need to stop feeding it with fear and anger.

Meanwhile, we need to feed the wolf of love. This will make us stronger inside, more patient, and less resentful, annoyed, or aggressive. We'll stay out of needless conflicts, treat people better, and be less of a threat to others. Then we'll also be in a stronger position to get treated better by them.

There are lots of ways to feed the wolf of love.

We can feed it by taking in the good of everyday experiences of feeling seen, appreciated, cared about, even cherished and loved.

We can feed the wolf of love by practicing compassion for ourselves and others, and by letting these experiences of compassion sink into our heart.

We can feed the wolf of love by recognizing the good in other people - and then by taking in the experience of the goodness in others.

Similarly, we can feed the wolf of love by sensing the goodness inside our own heart, and by letting that sense of truly being a good person - not a perfect person, but a good person - also sink in.

Last, we can feed the wolf of love by seeing the good in the world, and the good in the future that we can make together - in the face of so many messages these days that are dark and despairing.

We feed the wolf of love, in other words, with heart and with hope. We feed this wolf by sustaining our sense of what's good in other people, what's good in ourselves, what's already good in our world, and what could be even better in a world we can build together.

We need to stay strong to do this, to hold on to what we know to be true in spite of the brain's tendency to focus on threats and losses, and in spite of the age-old manipulations of various groups that play on fear and anger - that feed the wolf of hate - to gain or hold onto wealth and power.

So let's stay strong, and hold on to the good that exists all around us and inside us.

Let's stay strong, and hold onto the good that can be, that we can nourish and build in this world.

Let's stay strong, and hold onto each other.

Let's stay strong enough to take in the good that feeds the wolf of love each day.
