Meditation 

affirmations to help you meditateSoul Essence runs small local Meditation Groups of between 4 and 8 people in New Eltham.

A typical session will include a 30 to 45 minute guided meditation; all my group meditations have the same beginning to help you relax into your body. I do this to help people relax at the start; this helps them not to worry about what is coming next.  I then take you on a guided journey, which may be to help you further relax, or work on positivity, or many other emotions and subjects. As part of the meditation I also come round to each person and run some energy healing this is optional, you just need to let me know at the beginning if you would prefer not to have this.

I ask the groups to put forward suggestions for future meditations.

Integral Core Therapy

There are several reasons to have ICT:Don't be pushed around by fear
To access the loving awareness which exists within your core self and helps resolve childhood issues.
To find meaning and purpose in your life
To deal with life’s daily challenges
To provide integral healing and vision for individuals and communities
To connect with yourself and others in a heart-centred way
To support the spiritual and social paradigm shift in society

The primary intention is to access your core self which is the source of healing, wisdom, strength, and compassion. As your therapist-facilitator, I can support you whilst you are working to resolve childhood issues and to access your inner resources. The actual healer, mentor, and guide is your own integral core self.

Energy Healing

Energy Healing is a holistic therapy which treats the person rather than the symptoms. This means that it can be effective in almost any situation. It involves tracing the cause of any suffering through the physical and emotional symptoms to its roots deep within our psyche.

Our natural flow of energy always moves towards perfect health and well-being. However, when faced with difficulties in our life which we find too painful to accept, we tend to hold this unresolved energy in our aura. This creates blockages in our energy field which then depletes our vitality and can lead to ill-health and suffering.

Chakra Balancing

ChakrasIn most people most of the time there are imbalances between the front and rear aspect of each chakra and between the seven main chakras. An imbalance means that there is more energy moving through one part than another. This creates an unbalanced personality and physical body. Often when one aspect is tense, contracted or shut down then the energy will try to flow in a vicarious way.

So for instance, if someone is scared of showing their loving feelings so that the front of their heart chakra is contracted, then the rear aspect will overcompensate by expanding, such that they become overly wilful.

Distance Healing

Distance Energy Healing and Integral Core Therapy are also offered via skype or zoom if you are unable to come to see me personally. All you have to do is make an appointment; I will ring you or send you a link for a zoom meeting at the arranged time and have a session over the phone or internet. You will be asked to lie/sit down and relax by concentrating on your breathing for the energy healing which will be approximately 30 minutes. Once this has been completed I will ring you again to confirm everything is ok with you and further discussion if necessary.

For the Integral Core Therapy, this will be more talking and use of Chi Gung to help you get in touch with the suppressed emotions.

If any of the therapies above appeal to a problem you may have please contact me

How to Heal Your Inner Child

What is your inner child?

Your inner child is the child you were, with both negative and positive aspects. Our unmet needs, our suppressed childhood emotions along with our childlike innocence, creativity and joy are all still within us.

Our repressed emotions are are the things we learnt to do or to feel to allow our parents to love us. Examples; if you only received attention when you were good, your inner child maybe rebellious, sad or angry. If you were part of trauma or abuse your inner child would hide pain and fear to survive. By accessing your inner child you find the roots of issues or patterns in your life as an adult.

Signs of having a wounded inner child are:

  • Low self-esteem, poor body image
  • Mood and emotional imbalances
  • Problems with boundaries being too rigid or too weak
  • Problems with eating
  • Harming yourself
  • Psychosexual difficulties
  • Identity problems being a rebel/a hoarder/ a bully/ a perennial victim or a super-achiever
  • Intimacy problems
  • Commitment problems
  • A general lack of trust in yourself and others
  • Criminal behaviour, excessive lying
  • Being ‘overly- responsible’ for others
  • Being fiercely competitive and a poor loser
  • Dependencies and addictions
  • Obsessive and needy behaviour
  • Fear of authority figures
  • Being manipulative, passive or aggressive

We are not born with any of these issues, they are created in our subconscious by our environment and people during our informative years. Our informative years between birth and seven years old is the time when we absorb our experiences and are unable to verbalise our thoughts.

We create masks to hold and conceal our low self-esteem, family trauma, secrets and our shame. These are often not spoken about; however, they affect how we were treated by our family and friends. We need to be able to accept that we were shamed, ignored or betrayed by our parents and how this has truly wounded our soul/inner child. Our parents were not bad they were just wounded kids themselves.

We show these masks when we have negative thoughts, emotions, self-doubt or self-loathing that overwhelms us and we are then more likely to turn to drugs, food and alcohol to numb the feelings. Therapy will help you peel off the masks that we created as children to help us survive these experiences; once we begin to do this, we can then live lives without having to numb our feeling and emotions with stimulants.

Things You Can Do Yourself:

  • Take a few moments to think about the happy memories of your childhood.
  • Remind yourself how special you were and still are.
  • When the inner critic voice surfaces, stop… take some deep breaths reply to yourself with a soothing, comforting, nurturing inner voice.
  • Tell the inner child (you as a child) how much she is loved, valued and appreciated.
  • Your inner child has nothing to feel guilty or ashamed of, none of this was her/his fault.
  • Watch loving mothers with their babies and absorb the loving energy.
  • Imagine sitting with your inner child (you as a baby or toddler).
  • Allow the true feelings of your childhood to emerge and let the emotions flow. Let the tears flow and to release the anger hit a pillow.

If doing any of the above brings up anger and shock, then you are on the path to healing, shock is the beginning of grief. Do not feel bad about feeling angry, even if none of your wounding was intentional. Your parents did the best they could as wounded adults themselves.

As victimised children, we must grieve our betrayal and shame, what may have been our dreams or goals in life, and our unfulfilled developmental needs.

We must help our wounded inner child realise there was nothing he/she could have done differently, the pain of what happened to him/her is what needs to be grieved and healed.

When we feel we are bad or contaminated, this shame can lead to loneliness. Our inner child may feel flawed and defective; therefore they cover up their true self, with their mask/defence they used to get through life, creating a false self. Their true self, therefore, feels isolated. As we work on this level through therapy we can embrace the feelings and heal the self that has been in hiding. What we hide from others we hide from ourselves also. In coming to terms with our shame, abandonment and hidden feelings we begin to embrace and love our true self/soul.

How Your Spiritual Energy Can Benefit You

Everything is energy including us, vibrating at different frequencies. There are low and high frequencies. If we are vibrating at the lower levels we will have more pain in our lives than we would if we were vibrating at the higher frequencies.

Humans will always face challenges and fears in their lives. We grow and learn through friction, particularly friction within ourselves. Trying to rid our lives of uncomfortable moments, or difficult challenges is not our aim. We need to master being responsible and aware of our thoughts and actions, so we do not react from impulse, which has you playing out the same old low-frequency patterns you have been carrying around all your life.

Acting out these same patterns is why: –

  • people go on a diet lose loads of weight, only to put it all back on again,
  • people who win the lottery eventually end right back where they started financially,
  • most New Year resolutions are abandoned by the end of January.

If you only change the exterior and work on the things outside of yourself, continuing  to be the same person on the inside, not changing your mindset of lack and fear, (Example if I can’t hide behind my wall of flab I will be seen, vulnerable, and possibly rejected) therefore you will not evolve and change.  Step back for a moment and acknowledge the fact that you’re alive. The life force known as Universal Intelligence is flowing through your human body, making your blood pump, your mind think, your heart desire, your intuition tell you to look in a coat pocket for the car keys you’ve spent half the afternoon searching for. This force that flows through you is the essence of who you are, it’s the highest frequency there is—you are Universal Intelligence seeking expression on Earth through the you that is you. You are a valuable and irreplaceable asset to the Universe. So when your energy is vibrating at the highest frequency possible—the frequency of love, you are giving and receiving goodness and riches around you.

This information has been taken from the ideas in one of the books in Jen Sincero’s series of “You are a Badass ……”

Energy healing will help you work on your inner self, moving you into the higher frequencies so you feel healthier.  Contact Rosemary for more information

Meditation Improves and Keeps Your Energy Healthy

Meditation is not all about sitting crossed legged and breathing. Mediation is about relaxing our minds, clearing our thoughts, and being positive, this can be done sitting in a chair, walking in the park/nature, once you are more experienced even on your commute to work.

The easiest form of meditation is where you are taken on a journey and you are focussing on someone’s voice and using your imagination. I have people tell me they cannot imagine things or colours, the more you relax and focus on guided meditations the easier you will be able to imagine things in your mind. We all live hectic stressful lives today and do not take the time to switch off.

Your energy level reflects your thoughts, if you are always thinking stressful situations, worrying about an exam, interview, tasks at work, your mind and thoughts will be in overdrive. This drains your energy, you feel tired and exhausted.

Meditating regularly, helps you to unwind, the more you consciously try to relax and clear your mind the easier it becomes and you can then truly switch off from the stress in your life and let your body recover.  Benefits can be, reduced pain, lower blood pressure, less angry, more focussed, better memory, less sickness and visits to the doctor. You will become more present and your general health will start to improve when you meditate regularly.

We are all affected by the energy around us, we need to avoid situations/people where possible which drain us, and spend as much time as possible with positive people/situations.

You need no equipment to meditate, just a quiet space and ten to twenty minutes a day where you can be alone and quiet.

If you want to learn more about meditation I run two groups during the first week of every month both costing £6, Tuesday starts at 5:30 and Wednesday start at 8pm.

Suffering Panic Attacks – How to Help Yourself Cope in Life

Most of us have experienced anxiety at some time in our lives. That tense feeling, being hesitant and fearful of an approaching exam, test or interview. These situations are normally short-term and can be useful; they may make you more alert in an exam. However, the feelings may overwhelm you making you unable to concentrate.

 

We have all heard of the “Fight or flight” reflex, this reflex was to protect us from danger, give us the extra energy to run away. For this to happen, the anxious feelings and the fear trigger the release of a hormone called adrenalin. Adrenalin makes your heart beat faster to carry your blood to the organs which most need it. Your breathing increases to obtain more oxygen, you will sweat to stop you overheating. There are many other changes that take place in your body to help you cope with the impending danger. Once the danger has passed other hormones are released to help you relax. The “Fight of flight” reflex is very useful to help you run away from danger, however, when you want to run away from things like exams, driving tests it is not so useful because your body will take much longer to relax and you will be in an agitated state for longer. If the anxiety stays at high levels for long periods of time, you may find life difficult to deal with. The longer this goes on for, the more powerless and out of control, you may feel. If this feeling of fear or anxiety begins to overwhelm you the next stage is “Panic attacks”

Panic attacks are the exaggerated response of the body to fear and stress. You often get palpitations in your heart, possibly feeling faint, nauseous, chest pains, difficulty breathing and many more. You may start to feel you are going to have a heart attack and die. Attacks come on quickly and last from five to twenty minutes, those suffering them for longer are experiencing several attacks one after the other.

Anxiety and panic attacks can be a combination of factors. Something distressing happening to you in the past (possibly in childhood) and you were unable to deal with the emotions at the time. If things happen to you now which trigger that distress the anxiety and the emotions which have not been dealt with, and possibly trigger a panic attack. Your parents may have been anxious people and therefore this has been learnt by you in your early life.

Unfortunately, anxiety has an effect on your body and mind making you fearful, on edge, and unable to relax or concentrate. To cope with these feeling you might smoke, drink or use drugs as relaxants.

To stop the anxiety and panic attacks, learning to meditate and relax the mind is very helpful. Meditation is not all about sitting cross-legged on the floor; it is about learning to relax and focusing on a soothing voice or music. In my groups I do guided meditation, you focus on my voice as I take you on a relaxing journey to relax you.  Energy healing and integral core therapy, also benefits people suffering anxiety and panic attacks, we encourage you to go back to the fearful feelings and learn how you can deal with them.

My meditation groups are the 1st Wednesday of the month. I also do one to one sessions for meditation, energy healing and integral core therapy.

How to Alleviate Your Pain with These 5 Therapies

Alternative Therapy or Complementary Therapy is generally treatments that are used in place of or alongside conventional medicine. My advice is to always get a diagnosis from a qualified doctor before making any decisions to use alternative/ complementary therapy.

Alternative therapies include many disciplines, such as acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, therapeutic touch (Reiki and healing), guided imagery, yoga, hypnosis, biofeedback, aromatherapy, relaxation, meditation, herbal remedies and many others.

Research over the past few years has shown evidence of benefits for Mind-Body therapies, like acupuncture and meditation for helping to manage pain. Other alternative therapies like massage, chiropractic, therapeutic touch have the potential to relieve pain in certain people.

There are so many alternative therapies, what works for one person is not necessarily going to work for another. Finding out about the various therapies and deciding which one to try is a good idea, you may need to try several before you have success.

 Meditation and Hypnosis

These are mind-body therapies which are to help the mind to have an effect on the body. Meditation and hypnosis help the body to relax which can help alleviate discomfort related to chronic pain. Many types of pain are created due to tension in the body so relaxing will help relieve your pain.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is thought to decrease pain by increasing the release of chemicals that block pain, called endorphins. Many acu-points are near nerves when stimulated, these nerves cause a dull ache in the muscle. The stimulated muscle sends a message to the central nervous system, causing the release of endorphins (morphine like chemicals produced in our bodies during times of pain or stress). Endorphins are neurotransmitters (body chemicals that modify nerve impulses), block the message of pain from being delivered.

Chiropractic

Chiropractic treatment is the most common non-surgical treatment for back pain. Research has shown chiropractic may be helpful for headaches, neck pain, back pain and whiplash. There are other conditions which can be treated depending on your circumstances. Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments, the theory being that proper alignment of the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. Manipulation is used to restore mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event, such as falling, or repetitive stress, such as sitting without proper back support.

Massage

Seated acupressure massageMassage is used to help people suffering pain, to mainly manage back and neck problems. Massage can reduce stress and relieve tension by enhancing blood flow. This treatment can also help reduce the presence that may generate or sustain pain.

 

Therapeutic Touch and Healing

Energy healingHealing and Reiki is a channelling of energy into the body to help restore your energetic vibration back to normal. Our bodies are all energy vibrating at certain speeds. If your vibration speed is not correct you may have an illness or pain, the various energetic type healing therapies help to put your body back to its normal vibration. These therapies are normally done by laying hands on or close to your body.
