7. Is there a particular problem that you see with patients repeatedly?

Yes. I am always helping patients to be better listeners and develop sensitivity to the flow of their energy, to listen to their body’s signals and voice, to trust and live from their intuition and access their right brain which houses extremely vital information. If we could drop into stillness and quiet the mind, we would hear our longings and needs; we would hear what the body wants and why it is in pain and suffering. We need to focus less on the noise out there to hear the message from inside. We have to be good caretakers of our body and mind by tuning in and listening in: do I need to say No? Is my tank full? What is this illness teaching me? What is my body saying? Healing has to be a partnership between the skills of the doctor and the patient’s ability to listen to the inner messages. It is our job to teach patients to listen, to tune in, and to be more still and silent in order to hear and sense their wise man or wise woman.

8. How much of physical healing is psychological?

A lot. I don’t believe you can fully heal the body if underlying emotions have not been resolved. Pain is the body’s way of crying out for help, and pain is helping us remember the lessons we missed. Unexpressed grief, unlived longings, passivity, over-aggression and hostility, loneliness, inability to forgive ourselves and others, shame in asking for help, fear and shame of expressing feelings, all take their toll on the body’s energy system. Research has proven over and over that patients who have loving support systems and who feel safe expressing their feelings recover faster and live longer.

9. How much power does a patient have in his or her healing and recovery?

Healing is an inner and outer ongoing journey. The patient, who processes the physical, emotional, and spiritual issues as they surface, recovers faster and prevents relapse and future problems. So patients have a lot of power when they engage in their healing process holistically; when they address all the layers: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.

So, the power comes from addressing the illness holistically with intelligence, patience, self-compassion, and caring support from others.

10. Can patients balance their own energy when at home or at work?

Yes they can through what I call centering exercises. Centering exercises help bring patients to their center where they gain clarity and guidance about their decisions, and holistic needs. A few examples are:
Check in with their energy supply gauge, is it on empty or full?
Close your eyes and scan your body, what do you sense?
Place your hands on a painful area of the body and sent it love and healing energy.
What does the painful area in your body want from you and how is it a teacher?
Think of a decision you need to make and ask the body for an answer.
Try not to think for 30 seconds and still your mind.
