At the time, I was not aware what triggered it, but back in 2012 I was struck with a bout of anxiety that would not go away.  I had no logical reason to feel this way.  My personal and professional life were in good order and I was financially comfortable.  Although I was considered to be in good health, I actually thought I had something serious like cancer and this was my body’s way of communicating the imbalance, since the anxiety was so visceral yet I had no good reason to be feeling anxious.

I am all good now.  I ran a battery of functional medicine and conventional tests and  finally found the underlying cause, inflammation was going to my brain from a festering infection in my jaw related to a root canal gone bad.  I am so grateful for the experience. It was my wake up call.   I learned empathy for the patients I see with anxiety and depression.

Those two years of debilitating anxiety ( which I kept it hidden although I was suffering terribly inside) was what inspired me to take functional medicine training with Dan Kalish so I could learn to run all the lab tests and more importantly, it motivated me to pursue spiritual practices that continues today.  I am grateful for the Work of Gila Golub(link is external) which I continue to practice daily and has truly provided me with a framework to develop conscious thinking and behaviors that allows me to enjoy long periods of peace of mind.

Recently, I completed a 5-day workshop with:

  • Joe Dispenza – author of Breaking the Habit of Being Your Self
  • Bruce Lipton – author of The Biology of Beliefs
  • Gregg Braden – author of The DIvine Matrix
  • Lynn Mctaggart –author of The Power of Eight
  • Lee Carrol – author of Indigo Children
The emphasis was on becoming conscious and how our thoughts and feelings create magnetic fields that “communicate” with the FIELD to create our realities. If you do not like your life, then it starts with changing your thinking and daily practices to develop consciousness.
And when it comes to spontaneous healing, using energy to affect matter can be more efficient compared to using matter to affect matter.  As acupuncturists, we use both matter and energy to affect matter.  I think modern TCM has gone more the way of matter which is why I am excited that classical Chinese medicine is making a comeback.
I love it when things synchronize and the universe opens doors you did not know exists with invisible hands.  When this happens, it gives me comfort that I am being supported by the universe (Field).  This happened to me after my 5-day workshop.  I looked up on Healthy Seminars to find out the date for the next live webinar I will be moderating and there it was: Yvonne Farrell‘s webinar on Evolution of Consciousness – The Link Between the 8 Extraordinary Vessels and the Extraordinary Fu.
This topic speaks to me so deeply based on where I am on my human evolution so the timing is perfect!
After the workshop, I called Yvonne and we talked about acupuncture’s role in helping people with consciousness.  I was very interested to better understanding what her course was all about.  I could not wait for July 8th – I needed the goods now so we decided to set a FB live chat to geek out on the topic ahead of her webinar.
