In Chinese Medicine, the ancient concept of balancing polarities is expressed in the symbol of yin/yang. Here we see an image of maintaining the center while embracing all aspects of being.

Bring Your Goals and Dreams to Fruition

On Wednesday I woke to the exciting news Dylan Rose was born! My friend and patient, Nicole, called and said the birth was very fast and painful. After months of waiting, she is finally here, what a joyful experience to hold her baby! I feel blessed to part of this miraculous process. Nicole and I bonded during her pregnancy. Acupuncture helped with the healthy development of her baby, and also with her depression, anxiety, and energy. That is what this full moon, eclipse period brings, powerful energy to help bring our goals and dreams into fruition. I am helping many people this week who are experiencing underlining stress and anxiety. With acupuncture and herbs, they are.

Focus on “Being” Instead of “Doing”

As we transition into Fall, the New Moon and Solar Eclipse on September 1st, helps motivate us to stay present and focus on “Being” instead of “Doing”. By cultivating our excitement about the changes taking place instead of anxiety, we discover new possibilities. We are also entering a period called Mercury in retrograde for the next three weeks, a perfect time to reorganize and reflect on our lives. But when this planet that rules communication goes backwards, it can also create difficulties and stress in communication and problems with technology. Knowing this is an influence of Mercury retrograde, can help us let go of judgements and frustrations and not get.

Celebrate Heart-Centered Growth

As we near the end of summer, this full moon encourages us to pause and celebrate all of the heart-centered growth we have been enjoying. It is important to acknowledge our healing as we transition into new endeavors. This transition period can cause some confusion and doubt as to what is happening. This full moon is also a great time to let go of what does not work. Many people came into their healing session today wondering why they felt out of sorts and so emotional. When I mentioned we are on the verge of a full moon, they said “Oh that explains it!” Just like the tides are affected by.

Celebrate Transformation

Happy Full Moon! A wonderful time to celebrate our great efforts of transformation that we’ve been experiencing these last few months. Hopefully your transformations have involved completion, and letting go of fear and embracing greater love, truth, and healing!

New Moon of Independence

The theme for this New Moon is self love, which is perfect for  Independence Day!  It is very liberating to love and care for oneself whole-heartedly. When we  accept and forgive ourselves, focus on love, and let go of fear, we enter the timeless present and create a lightness of being which is reflected in positive relationships. Often we do for others to the detriment of our health and happiness, which can also create stress in our body, mind and spirit. As well as cause stress in our relationships. Healing sessions are an excellent way to let go and focus on self healing. This helps create greater love, compassion and.

Nourish Life – Manifest New Moon Dreams

Nourish Life – Manifest New Moon Dreams

Having just returned from the Hawaiian Islands Saturday, where I was immersed in nature for 10 days, I am feeling weirdly out of place here. I am reminded to stay focused on the New Moon message of trusting in the process of life and staying positive, while planting new seeds of personal and professional desires and goals. It is a choice of attitude on how I want to experience my life no matter where I am or what the circumstances are. So I took a nap, got on my bike, bought groceries, and am starting to feel at home again. Life is good! The New Moon is the ideal time.

Full Moon Rebellious Qi

Full Moon Rebellious Qi

Full moons are all about letting go, completion, and trusting the process. This is part of the natural life cycle. Often this can bring up issues of control, which can create disturbance in the energy flow. In Chinese Medicine this is called Rebellious Qi. That is when the energies in the body, mind, and spirit run contrary, and we get stuck causing dis-ease within our system. In addition, we have been in a Mercury Retrograde cycle, when the planet spins backwards, since April 28 and ending on May 22. This period can cause difficulties with communication. However, it is also a wonderful opportunity to review, refine, and explore our dreams.
