HI Andrea,

It is definately a passion, once I started learning massage it opened up a whole new world for me as well. I not only wanted to help heal people's bodies, but their minds as well. It really was my calling way back when I was a teen, only I feared my gifts as being something evil and never acted on them until now. That is when I finally realized I do have a gift that I was put on this earth for.

Yes, I pretty much follow the same passion that you follow with philosphy and spiritual awareness, things like that.
my email address is christie@soothingtouch.us

Blessings....Christie

Yes, I have taken some courses and am still studying.

My studies are from the National Institue of Health Sciences. I will also be learning psychotherapy later this year.

I too think it is benefical to have basic knowledge in all these things.

I know what you mean, I can go hours myself learning more and more.

Blessings....Christie

hi Christina, i dont remember but have you taken any counseling courses yourself? I am currently taking Holistic Counseling Therapist courses from the National Health Institute, they are in Saskatchewan, its a program on phycotherapy, counseling, cognitive behaviour, listening skills, and co-dependency. I think its always good to have a good base knowledge dealing with clients who come to heal. I have to finish my courses by July. Last year i got my diploma in naturopathy. and on my own i read alot of the stuff that you are doing, and cant seem to get enough, i read, read and read. i have so many things in my document file yet still to read, and i keep coming in contact with so many more things, i can sit here for hours after hours getting lost in the stuff.

Hi Andrea,

I agree, most weight issues are the result of something else. I always ask my clients before they want to ask me for advice about surgery or any other quick fixes to look deep inside theirselves and ask themselves if they be any happier trying to take the easy way out.

Once they stop and really think about it they realize that their issues are far beyond weight gain or addictions. Most of them anyway.

Good morning Denise. I understand what you are saying, and its true, alot of people gain weight from the medicine that they are from. but i think what this book and alot of books that are mind/body related is saying, ok you gained weight from the medicine you are taking, but what is the medicine for is that related to any mind issue. for example people that have aching backs and shoulders, well i think most of us know that is from stress. We can take medicine for that, which will help the pain, but what is the side effect from the medicine, or we can deal with the pain. You know in the last 2 weeks,i had 2 people tell me they rather take the medicine because it works fast and is free (insurance) then do all that other stuff because they l. dont believe it, 2. takes too long, 3. are just looking for a fast fix to relieve the pain. However I do realize there are organic and non organic health problems. Sometimes we do what we have to, to feel better. I sometimes also take predisone, but I havent been on it long enough to gain weight, but i do notice a muscle breakdown and twitching in my muscles within a couple of days of using it. The article I wrote is from a book called "The Power Within", its about self loving yourself and lots of affirmations.
Just thought I'd share to, to have people reflect on it.

Its a bit long, but this is by Louise L. Hay.
I will try and edit it abit

People go on diets for two or three weeks, then they stop. They feel guilty about falling of their diets, and instead of recognizing that they did what they could at the time, they get angry at themselves and feel guilty. Then to punish themselves, because guilt always seeks punishment, they go out and eat foods that are not good for their bodies. If they could acknowledge that for the two weeks they followed a particular regime they were doing something wonderful for their bodies and stop laying guilt trips on themselves, they would begin to break the pattern. They could also begin to say: I used to have a problem with weight, now I allow myself to be the perfect weight for me, and the pattern would start to shift inside. Yet we dont want to concentrate on the food issue too much for that is not where the problem lies.
Overeating has always meant a need for protection. When you feel insecure or frightened, you pad yourself with a layer of safety. Weight has nothing to do with food. Most of you spend a lifetime being angry at yourselves for being fat. What a waste of energy. Instead, realize there is something going on in your life that is making you feel unsafe and insecure. It could be your work, your spouse, your sexuality, or your life in general. If you are overweight put the food/weight issue aside and work on the pattern that says "I need protection because i'm insecure.
Its amazing how our cells respond to our mental patterns. when the need for protection is gone, or when we start feeling secure, that fat will melt off.
Weight is only the outer effect of a fear that is inside you. When you look in the mirror and see the fat person staring back, remember that you are looking at the result of your old thinking. When you start to change your thinking, you are planting a seed for what will beoome true for you. What you choose to think today will create your new figure tomorrow. One of the best books on releasing excess weight is The only diet there is by Sondra Ray. Its all about dieting from negative thinking. She shows you step by step how to do it.
