November Is "Reversing Breast Cancer Naturally" Awareness Month

October was Breast Cancer Awareness month and I barely made it through it!  Now just to be clear, I support anyone who is passionate about fighting for any cause that they believe in and connecting with others over a common shared experience such as dealing with breast cancer or supporting family members diagnosed with breast cancer.  

But what I do not support is the idea that the CURE is in a magic pill, or out there in a laboratory somewhere, waiting to be discovered, and that KFC (of all companies!) is going to be on the leading edge of bringing healing to the masses!    It is so unfortunate that breast cancer is now being used as an excuse to sell more of the processed food products containing chemical toxins that accumulate in the body and set the stage for chronic health conditions like cancer to develop.   

Healing is a journey of mind, body, and spirit and the ability of the body to heal itself is beyond anything you've ever been allowed to imagine.  Based on what I know about the body's ability to heal itself, I personally consider medical surgeries and toxic medical treatment such as chemotherapy and radiation, to be radical and "options of last resort".  There's way too much information out there now about what's causing cancer and how diet, detox, stress reduction, and lifestyle changes all address the underlying root causes of cancer, while the "options of last resort" only chase symptoms and weaken the body over the long run.

This topic is dear to my heart because the only reason I started on this career path was because I met a woman several years ago, who reversed her breast cancer naturally and opened my skeptical mind to this possibility.  I think enough people are painfully aware that breast cancer exists.  Don't you?  The awareness that's really needed right now on the planet is the knowledge of how to regain one's health naturally.

So this month I'm paying it forward by declaring November "Reversing Breast Cancer Naturally" Awareness month so YOU can also open your mind to what's possible in terms of healing from the inside out.  Each week this month, if you are a member of my newsletter (if not, join today!), you will receive a story of healing in your inbox and a holistic tip on proactively addressing the root causes of breast cancer.  Be inspired and please share this information with the women you love.

Love & Light,
LaShanda


"Janette's Story of Healing After Being Given 6 Months To Live"

"When Janette Murray-Wakelin was diagnosed with highly aggressive carcinoma breast cancer over six years ago, she was ‘given’ six months to live. The tumor was 3cm and the cancer had spread into the chest wall and the lymph nodes. It was recommended that she undergo conventional chemotherapy and radiation treatment, which may possibly extend her life a further 6 months.

At 52 years, a mother of two and grandmother of one, she was not willing to accept this prognosis.

I had lived a very healthy lifestyle, being vegetarian for 25 years and vegan for the previous 15 years," Janette explains.  "I have also been extremely physically active all my life, so I was quite shocked with the diagnosis."

"However, the power of intention is far greater than that of fear," Janette continues, "and I had every intention of staying around for a long time!".

Reversing Breast Cancer Naturally - Tip #1

Changing your diet is one of the best things you can do to address the root causes of cancer.  The colors in your food speak to all sorts of great phytonutrient and energetic properties that have the ability to restore nutrient deficiencies, provide the body with anti-oxidants, and even turn off cancer genes and turn on anti-cancer genes through Epigenetics.  I use raw foods in my holistic detox programs because they are powerfully packed with colors, nutrients, and living energy.  The Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine released the info graphic below to help emphasize the connection between diet change and cancer.

Why I'm Not Afraid Of Ebola - 4 Part Video Series

STOP THE FEAR!

I decided to make this video series because I wanted to share the reasons why I'm personally not afraid of becoming a victim of an Ebola outbreak. I’m not an Ebola expert, but I do not believe that Nature is out to attack us and that we are powerless against all of these external threats that we are constantly being conditioned to fear.

I know from personal experience and knowledge gained from studying from great healers, that “disease “only gains a foothold in a body that is physically, mentally, and energetically receptive to the development of that disease -- no matter what it's called. And no matter if it is affecting a single person or a large group of people. It is all about the inner terrain BUT what most people don't realize and have not been taught about, is that inner terrain is multi-dimensional -- mind, body, and spirit. Focusing on only one of these things is not enough. I'm talking to you fellow detoxers!

Your belief systems, emotions, thought patterns, energetic frequency, accumulated toxicity, and weaknesses in your body make up your internal terrain. You ultimately cannot control whether you are exposed to viruses, bacteria, but you can control what you think, what you feel, what you believe, where you're vibrating, what you put in your mouth, and whether you actively cleanse your body. If you are the average person, then your internal terrain is A MESS and YOU have created a perfect environment for dis-ease to grow and thrive in your body.

Remember that you are divine, intelligent, energy in physical form and your body has an intelligence that is beyond comprehension. Acknowledge your divinity, accept full responsibility for your health, take back your power, and use these videos to help you expand your thinking, stop giving your power away, and allowing others to focus your attention for you and tell you what is and what is not possible in YOUR reality. You decide what you believe in and the choices you make (or don't make) about your internal terrain will determine what physical symptoms (if any) manifest in your reality.

The Beginning is Near

Have you ever known anything worth having that didn't come without struggle and challenge?  Can you think of any sort of societal change, progressive leaps forward in thinking, and gains made by marginalized groups that didn't come without chaos and turmoil?  Things often fall apart, so greater things can come together.  Isn't it?

Old systems, old ways of thinking, old ways of relating to one another are simply no longer sustainable at this moment in time and they must collapse.  Trust that this collapse is being accompanied by the birth of new systems involving integrity, inter-connection, sharing of resources, love, and harmony.  If you train your mind to look for them, many of these systems are already here and growing in number.  It is up to you where you choose to focus your attention during times of chaos, or if you allow your attention to be focused for you.

The decision at hand is whether to see the world as full of violence and fear and on the edge of collapse or as an opportunity for you to be apart of the greatest awakening this planet has ever experienced.  Choose to be EXCITED, CURIOUS, INSPIRED, EMPOWERED, MOVED TO ACTION, or to simply be IN AWE AND WONDER of humanity and all the mysteries of this thing called life.  

Anything is better than choosing to be afraid.

Tap Into Your Inner Healer: The Metaphysics of Healing

Your Body's Talking to You...
Are You Listening?

In this 7 minute video, I discuss a particular aspect of healing that could mean the difference between you being on medications for the rest of your life and you healing completely -- mind, body, and spirit.  

It's that important!

I talk about the three premises of metaphysical healing, how I came to this understanding during my work with detox clients and during my own healing journey.  And towards the end of the video, I discuss hypothyroidism and how it can be understood from a metaphysical level.

If you have any previous experiences related to this concept, or this video causes a shift in your awareness and understanding of what symptoms and "diseases" really are, I'd love for you to share your feedback/comments below.

If you need help interpreting your physical health symptoms and understanding what your body is trying to tell you, I offer this as part of two of my services:

An Introduction to Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy (QHHT)

It's hard to imagine that just a few years ago I was a C.P.A and Controller at a private high school in San Francisco crunching numbers and plugging away at spreadsheets every day, completely unaware of what was waiting for me in the future.  And here I am now with a complete career change, healed of my many physical ailments naturally, and now significantly expanding my understanding of what's possible in terms of the body's ability to heal itself and this time of spiritual awakening on the planet right now.

I am currently seeing QHHT clients on a donation basis during September 2014 in Santa Monica, CA.  After reviewing this page (click here), please reach out if this of interest to you.

I've shared a blog post below from a fellow QHHT practitioner who has experienced some amazing healing stories during her sessions, in order to give you an understanding of what's possible with this technique.  Enjoy!

QHHT Case Study: Scarred Lungs and Asthma - Healed
Article by Candace Craw-Goldman

A lovely woman contacted me for a QHHT session and described the reason she wanted to have this experience in this way: "I am a healer, and I believe, a good one. I have helped many of my clients have a healthier and happier life. I cannot seem to heal myself, however. I want to find out the reason and hopefully learn how to do so."

"Lisa" (not her real name) arrived at my office in a lovely flourish of colorful scarves and clothing and crystal jewelry. She had an air of peace about her and truly exuded a vibration of love. I anticipated a great session and was not disappointed.

Lisa was in her mid 60's. She was a practicing reiki and crystal healer in a large metropolitan city. She had a busy practice and happy and satisfied clients. She had many friends and her life was happy, content and satisfied save for her own physical condition.

She was the first child in her family and had been born severely prematurely at a time when our medical profession was not as adept at saving these tiny babies as they are today. She told me she was born at 28 weeks gestation and weighed only about 1.5 pounds. Her mother also was traumatized during the birth. Lisa's doctor and family did not expect the baby to survive and the family completely focused on her mother during this time thinking there would be no living baby.

As an infant Lisa had a lot of trouble breathing. Obviously, she survived, but was a sickly baby and caught every illness that came around. Her lungs were scarred and she had severe asthma her entire life. She was taking various medications and had inhalers and they just weren't working at all any more. To add to the complications, she lived in a city known for its dirty air!

Through a raspy voice and labored breathing, Lisa told me she was a regular meditator and often communicated with angels and the unseen realms. She easily went into a very deep trance. The healing angels escorted her to view a life in Atlantis where she was also a healer. She was able to describe her healing practice at that time in quite wonderful detail. She used crystals then too, but in different ways. She had a large room constructed around a enormous crystal and there were ceremonies and colors used in healing physical and emotional issues of people in her community.

During the portion of the session where we talk to the High Self, I asked why we were shown the Atlantean life. The High Self explained that she had experienced many many incarnations as a healer and she was continuing that experience in her current life.

I asked the High Self why Lisa was born so early and why she had the breathing challenges. It answered in this way: "The scarred lungs and limited breathing were a planned event that acted something like 'speed brakes' in Lisa's life. She is a powerful healer. If she would have had all of her energy, all of her capabilities in place during the 1960's and 70's, she would have had difficulty being accepted for her talents in her family and her culture at that time. The asthma and diminished lung capacity slowed her down so that she would progress gradually and have smaller healing achievements and discoveries over time than if she was completely healthy."

I then said, "Well times are certainly different now and we as a society are more accepting of this type of healing." The High Self replied, "True." I then asked, "Does she need to have the 'speed brakes', the lung condition now?" The High Self said, "No, it is no longer necessary, it has achieved its intended purpose." I then asked if healing of her lungs could be granted immediately. The High Self said, "Yes!"

I watched as wave after wave of energy washed over and through Lisa and I could see her body undulating. It was truly grand and wonderful to behold. When healing of this magnitude happens in a QHHT session I also definitely feel the energy myself. It's rather lovely and definitely beneficial to me personally. Not only because of the gratitude I feel for being able to facilitate healing for the client, but because I believe I actually often receive some of the energetic healing for my own body as a result.

After some time the High Self declared the healing complete. I asked about Lisa's medications. "They are no longer necessary. However, for her doctor's and her own conscious peace of mind, she should slowly wean off of them. We will mitigate any unnecessary side effects to her physical form from them."

I counted her out of trance and I don't think I will ever forget what happened next. Lisa's eyes flew open and she sat bolt upright. She tossed off the covers she had over her body and leapt out of bed. She started jumping around the room like a human pogo stick sucking in deep breaths of air. "Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god!" She said over and over again. "Listen! Listen to me BREATHE!!" She was whooshing air in and out of her lungs at such a rate I really thought she might hyperventilate, but she didn't. She just kept breathing deeply with no rasp, and jumping up and down.

At one point she stopped and practically shouted, "My KNEES don't hurt!"

"Your knees?" I asked, "You never said a thing about your knees!"

Lisa said, "Well, it's because in the scheme of things my knee pain didn't really seem to matter. I have, well... I HAD arthritis in my knees." She started jumping up and down again and doing deep knee bends. And now they don't hurt. At all. Nothing hurts. Nothing hurts. And I can breathe. I can breathe. Oh my god I can BREATHE!"

In the debrief Lisa described the vision of angels surrounding her and the presence of the Christ Consciousness standing behind them. Her eyes sparkled as she described the beings who assisted in her healing.

Are all QHHT sessions this dramatic? No. Do all of them result in immediate undeniable healing. Again, no. But it happens often enough to make this work extraordinary and wonderful and worth a few hours investment to give it a try. Many sessions provide similar dramatic healing but over time. Meaning, the healing was and is done and complete on the "etheric level" during the session but will take some time to manifest on the physical level.

I have often asked the High Self why this is so. Some of the reasons for immediate healing are full and total forgiveness, of self and others; readiness to make a change and the vibratory state to allow it to occur; lessons fully learned. Some of the reasons for a delay in healing are that the person, their doctor, or their family's belief system require a slower improvement to be accepted as real, or changes still need to be made in terms of lifestyle or forgiveness or understanding.

Lisa contacted me several weeks after her session. Her healing remained manifest and she was taking only small remnants of the medications she had been prior to the appointment and planning on stopping them altogether in time. "It's like beginning life all over again," She told me. "Having the sweet pleasure of deep easy breathing is such a blessing, and it helps me remain energized to help others in my work. Thank you for the work you and Dolores and the others who practice her method do. It's truly a gift from God himself."

Doctors Are The 3rd Leading Cause of Death in the United States

Doctors1.jpg

By:  Dr. Joseph Mercola

This article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) is the best article I have ever seen written in the published literature documenting the tragedy of the traditional medical paradigm.

If you want to keep updated on issues like this click here to sign up for my free newsletter.

This information is a followup of the Institute of Medicine report which hit the papers in December of last year, but the data was hard to reference as it was not in peer-reviewed journal. Now it is published in JAMA which is the most widely circulated medical periodical in the world.

The author is Dr. Barbara Starfield of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health and she desribes how the US health care system may contribute to poor health.

ALL THESE ARE DEATHS PER YEAR:

12,000 -- unnecessary surgery

7,000 -- medication errors in hospitals

20,000 -- other errors in hospitals

80,000 -- infections in hospitals

106,000 -- non-error, negative effects of drugs

These total to 225,000 deaths per year from iatrogenic causes!!

What does the word iatrogenic mean? This term is defined as induced in a patient by a physician's activity, manner, or therapy. Used especially of a complication of treatment....

...225,000 deaths per year constitutes the third leading cause of death in the United States, after deaths from heart disease and cancer. Even if these figures are overestimated, there is a wide margin between these numbers of deaths and the next leading cause of death (cerebrovascular disease).

The Perfect Plan

238_32093712024_150_n.jpg

By Pamela Poole

"Your life is perfect. It is a perfect plan; it is a spontaneous miracle; it is both every moment.

The creation is perfect. How do birds know to migrate? How do maple leaves know to turn crimson and fall to the ground? Winter comes and you think you will never feel the sun again, but then you see the first green shoots of spring bursting through the snow. How does the flower survive? It is a miracle.

The human body is a perfectly planned machine. How could our network of bones, veins, muscles, and organs ever have been created? You look into the eyes of a newborn and you are speechless.

You have only to open your eyes for 3 seconds to observe the unfathomable Intelligence at play.

And what about you and your life? Do you think this perfect Creator stops with you? We spend endless hours trying to figure out why this and why that. Do you ever wonder why trees give out oxygen? We don't question that part of the plan. But when it comes to our own lives, we question constantly.

The mind tries to figure out that which cannot be understood. Trust in the plan of creation. Nature, who has brilliantly designed the creation down to the very atom, will spend no less attention on the details of your life. Your situation, your challenges, are all perfect. Relax, trust, and let go."

The Problem With Caffeine (Part 2)

In Part 1 of this series, we talked about the physiological consequences of consuming caffeine on a regular basis.  But in this section, I'd like to take a more holistic focus and start to examine some of the potential reasons why you would require an external stimulant in order to live your day to day life.  #realtalk  My personal theory is that the regular consumption of toxic foods and/or beverages is primarily fueled by underlying toxic thoughts, emotions, belief systems, and/or lifestyle habits.  And those are the things that are worth paying attention to and consciously shifting, instead of engaging in some self-imposed guilt trip or endless mind-numbing debate about the latest scientific studies on whether caffeine is good for you or bad for you!   It is my opinion that nothing is inherently good or bad, it’s all about how you use it in your life and for what reasons, that makes all the difference.

 

Your Work / Life Balance is Non-Existent

I used to be a CPA at a public accounting firm named Deloitte & Touche.  It’s well known that in this industry, there’s a “busy season” where you’re expected to work 60-70 hours per week.  This work standard was often made possible with the help of a little drug…I mean substance…called caffeine.  I managed to make it through busy season without caffeine each year, but there came a time when due to certain filing deadlines, my audit team was asked to work about 30 hours in a row, without going home.  Being the young and naïve peon on the team blindly following orders, I agreed to this “request” and around 4am, I proceeded to morph into a zombie where all sense of productivity came to a screeching halt, but I continued to blankly stare at my screen, while toggling between tabs on my Excel spreadsheet.  I was the only one visibly suffering, as all my teammates were wired on caffeine and powering through the night.

While that may be an extreme example, most people are completely out of balance when it comes to tolerating unreasonable requests made by their employer or the time they devote to their job vs. their personal interests, their health, and family/friends.  If you are subconsciously relying on caffeine to do your job, or for that matter keep your job, then I would seriously considering reassessing your chosen occupation and even changing jobs.  Because if you continue at this pace, in essence, you’re trading short-term remuneration for long term health challenges due to the chronic imbalances you are creating within your body.   And I've met many people who are in this boat, wishing now, that they would have made changes sooner.

Your mind will probably be able to come up with all sorts of limiting beliefs of why you can't change your work environment  (e.g. "the job market is horrible", "everything would fall apart if I worked less hours", "my boss would never let me telecommute", "I won't be able to find anything better than this", "but my kids have to go to THIS school in THIS district", etc.), but I’m here to let you know, that anyone (including YOU) can unplug, can push back, can ask for what you want, and can find a job that supports a healthy work ethic.  Your well-being demands it.   I meet people everyday who have recreated their work environment so that it supports their health.  

Now in order to do this, you might have to do one or more of the following:  1) redefine for yourself what society considers to be “successful”, 2) let go of the fear of not being able to provide for yourself or for your family, or 3) to let go of any limiting beliefs that says you're stuck.  But remember, you always have the power to make a new decision in your life.  Always.  

TAKE ACTION:  If this sounds familiar, consider asking a friend that you consider to be objective and outside your current field or industry, whether your work routine or environment seems to be out of balance, and if so, ask them to help you brainstorm some creative solutions to get you back on track and to create more balance in your life.

 

Your To-Do List Is Out of Control

I recently talked to a friend who admits that before she started eating better and meditating, she was on a roller coaster ride that involved waking up in the wee hours of the morning to exercise so she could be fit and take care of body, followed by a long workday at an uninspiring job which was fueled by several cups of coffee during the day to stay awake, and then at night because she was so ramped up on caffeine, she would take Benadryl so she could fall asleep to wake up early in the morning to work out and start the same routine all over again.  It’s sounds insane to her now, but felt completely normal to her back then.   

I have another friend who doesn’t really like the idea of drinking caffeine on a daily basis but she does it because she needs it in order to survive the school year.  Her job, workout schedule, and housekeeping duties, combined with her children’s early wake up and after school/weekend activities are just too much for her to handle during the school year, and she ends up extremely tired a lot of the times.

iced starbucks drinks.jpg

My friends have different reasons for being overwhelmed, but they both had a tendency to put way too much on their plates, and unconsciously operate beyond their capacity.  In addition, both of them shared that they didn’t feel like there was anything they could do to unplug from their self-created runaway train. 

Is your to-do list out of control?  Leaving you with little energy -- forced to survive on artificial stimulation?  It might be time to accept that you cannot possibly "do it all" and instead do some soul searching to get in contact with what's really important to you.

TAKE ACTION:  Spend some time this week creating two lists.  For the first list, take inventory of the number of activities you currently have on your plate.  For the second list, write down your core values or principles that guide your life and are important to you.  Compare the two lists and try to tune into your heart to see where there is any discord or to identify any items that are clearly not worth compromising your long term health.  Use this exercise to simplify your routine and prioritize time for the things that nurture your spirit and build you up instead of depleting your mojo.

 

You Don’t Like Your Life

Are you bored with your life?  
Feeling generally uninspired or jut plain "meh"?
Do you feel unaligned with the bigger reason for you being on this planet right now?

I used to feel this way often when I was accountant and it made it REALLY hard to get going in the morning.  I literally lived next door to my job and didn't make it in until 9:30 or 10am sometimes.  I was paid well, traveled a lot, had a enviable work environment, and a great boss.  So I felt more than guilty that my spirit was dying a little each day on the inside, given that I had such a "good life", compared to so many other people in the world.  

When I started pursuing my personal interests and after quit my accounting job, I noticed that several things quickly became obsolete.  That whole “I’m not a morning person” thing didn’t really hold as much weight as it did before, and I started to enjoy different parts of the morning when I had space to listen to quiet time before the day starts…to watch the sunrise as it came up…and to make my breakfast without rushing out the door.   The concept of “hating Mondays” also went out the window.  When I was surrounded by tasks that I loved doing on a regular basis and had the freedom to set my own schedule by working for myself, suddenly I began to love all the days in the week again and stopped hating on poor Monday.  And the last thing that dropped away was the idea of “living for the weekend” which is the name of a popular song and speaks to the concept of suffering through a miserable week at a  job that one dislikes or simply tolerates, in order to squeeze all the things one loves to do into two days, before waking up on Monday to repeat the same pattern all over again.

I'll say from personal experience, that when you sincerely like your life and the people and events in it, and consciously fill your days with things that you find interesting and exciting, you’ll be dying to greet each day anew and you actually might have trouble falling asleep at night because you can’t wait to see what the next day brings!  You will not need caffeine to get you through your day or your life because you will be coasting off the natural energy that inspiration and joy brings. 

TAKE ACTION:  If this applies to you, take at least 15 minutes this week to close your eyes and do a soul check-in about how you really feel about your life and whether your daily routine really reflects your inner desires, hopes, and aspirations.  If not, ask yourself what types of things you could be doing to bring more excitement, passion, and joy into your reality on a daily basis.

And if none of the above applies to you, then maybe you just like the taste of coffee and plan to switch to decaf, and get some more quality sleep in the near future after reading this article!  

I hope that you found this 2-part article helpful in some way and learned some information about the effects of caffeine on the body, but most importantly started to dig a little deeper into your reliance on artificial stimulation in your life and what changes you might need to make to address any related imbalances. 

Blessings of love, light, and wellness to each of you on your road to healing your body and discovering who you truly are!  If the above article resonated with you in any way, I'd love for you to share your thoughts below!
