HEALING STARTS WITH YOU – 5 Steps to Help Your Body Heal

I was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) aka Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2002 and I am writing this June 2017, so I have experienced the frustration and stress that often occurs with chronic illness or injury.  Learning to maintain a positive attitude, stay motivated and at peace are critical in order to heal.  It doesn’t matter if you are using traditional, alternative or energy healing methods you have the power to help your body heal.

I’ve spent over 15 years on this healing journey, working with alternative and energy healing practitioners.  I have used many different techniques and I learned something from each one, but there was no one thing that healed all the issues.  So, I created my own practice for healing that works for me.  I want to share what I’ve learned so that you can create a practice that helps your body heal.

Our bodies know how to heal, but they may not be able to begin the process due to stress, toxins and lack of resources.  It is up to us to release trapped negative emotions and stress triggers, eliminate toxins and increase the healing energy available.

My approach to support physical healing is based on 3 things and can be done with traditional and alternative treatments.

Heal Emotions – Eliminate Toxins – Increase Energy


5 Steps

KNOW that it is possible to HEAL;

HEAL sources of stress and trauma;

Give LOVE and approval;

Increase healing ENERGY – Internally;

Increase healing ENERGY – Externally.

The “Inner” Work – Healing thoughts, feelings and emotions:

The Inner work positively transforms your thoughts, feelings and emotions, which allows your body to heal / repair more effectively.

People who have healed from a serious illness or injury often say that they were transformed in the process.  Since my diagnosis in 2002, I can say that I am a very different person and in a good way.  I am not being critical of myself, I did the best that I could, but now I am emotionally stronger, more at peace and able to Forgive, love and accept myself much more.

Healing is Transformation


STEP 1                   KNOW that it is possible to HEAL

Search for and connect with people who have or are healing.  Read books, watch videos, join groups and follow people who have healed, who inspire or motivate you.

What did the people who healed, transformed or succeed do?  How did they do it?

Years ago, I learned that there were people in my life that thought I was in denial.  After being given a diagnosis of ALS (aka Lou Gehrig’s disease), which for most is terminal, instead of worrying about what might happen, I continued living as if I wasn’t going to die…

Even while doctors were trying to figure out what was wrong, I was   working with an incredibly supportive group of alternative and energy healing practitioners.    I kept trying treatment, supplements and energy healing, I kept the ones that helped, discarded the ones that didn’t and continue to try new ones.  I NEVER GAVE UP.

To the extent possible, limit the amount of time you spend with negative people.  Unfortunately, we can’t avoid all the negative people and messages, but we can learn to limit the impact they have on us and our attitude.  Choose to FOCUS on the positive messages not on the naysayers and negative ones.

I generally ignore people who have a limited view of what’s possible.  If someone is “pushing my buttons”, I do healing on the issue and we’ll do that in Step 2.


STEP 2                   HEAL sources of stress and trauma

Learn an emotional energy healing technique.  Practicing an energy healing technique will heal triggers to sources of stress, trapped negative emotions and trauma.   There are many techniques that are simple to use and you can learn from a book or audio program.  Appendix A

I believe learning how to release trapped emotions is the most important skill you can learn!!!

“90 percent of all pain that we experience is due to trapped emotions, to emotional baggage”  E-Motion The Movie

This movie confirms my approach to healing and why my strategy is so focused on emotional healing.

Keep a journal of issues to heal using these tools:

  1. Issues and people that cause you stress;
  2. Past trauma;
  3. Limiting beliefs to what is possible from STEP 1;
  4. Limiting beliefs to loving yourself from STEP 3.


BE PRESENT –  The majority of STRESS comes from regret or judgment of the past or Worry and Fear of the Future.  Ask yourself, “In this moment am I safe?”, most of the time the answer is YES.


STEP 3                   Give LOVE and APPROVAL

Give yourself love and approval, ACCEPT yourself as you are no matter what.

While your body may be experiencing disease, “You” (Your essence or true self) are not broken.

Give your body and yourself Love and Approval every day and heal any issues that prevent you from unconditionally loving yourself.

“You are neither too much nor too little.   You are perfect just as you are, dear ones.  You don’t have to prove anything to anyone anywhere…  You are perfect as you are, right here and right now. There is no need to struggle to be better.  All you need to do is love yourself more and more each day.     The rest will follow.”  Louise Hay Newsletter 10/15/2016


STEP 4                   Increase healing ENERGY – Internally

It is possible to increase the level of healing energy in the body; it can be as simple as sitting quietly while feeling Love and Joy with focused breath.

Meditation reduces stress, increases energy flow and energetic frequency.   There are many books and audios on this.

Quantum Touch has the same benefits as meditation, you can also use it for healing.  It works through breath work and focused intention on Love. Appendix 1

Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Kundalini Yoga are well known to increase energy and have healing benefits.  I haven’t used these techniques.

External “Outer” Work – Healing from external sources




Step 5                     Increase healing   ENERGY – External

Structured Water – I have been using a device for many years and I would not give it up.    The devices neutralize toxins, neutralize other negativity and energizes the water.  As a bonus, since you are structuring the water, no more plastic water bottles.  There are many types of devices portable, shower, sink, whole house. To learn more.

Essential Oils are made from plants; therefore, the oils are highly concentrated and contain the healing properties of the plants. They are very high frequency and the molecules are so small they can penetrate cell walls.  I started using them at the beginning and used them off and on since.  For the past several months I am using them more than ever.  Please check with someone who is certified in Aromatherapy to confirm that there aren’t any interactions with any medication that you are taking.

Healing Tools – There are so many healing tools available.    I use two a Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy (PEMF) and a Low-Level or Cold Laser.  Both add energy to the cells, but I am not able to describe all the other benefits here.

I bought my PEMP device from Dr. Pawluk’s website because they advise you about the devices and have many articles on PEMF therapy.    DrPawluk.com

I use the Quantumwave Laser because it was designed for home use, it adds energy, it unwinds cellular memory and aids in meditation by unwinding emotions.    Ilovemylaser.com



The Daily Practice

A well respected cellular biologist and author, Dr. Bruce Lipton, wrote an interesting and enlightening book “The Biology of Belief”.  In it he discusses the importance of joy and love.

“It is also important to note to fully experience your vitality it takes more than just getting rid of life’s stressors.  In a growth-protection continuum, eliminating the stressors only puts you at the neutral point in the range.  To fully thrive, we must not only eliminate the stressors but also actively seek joyful, loving, fulfilling lives that stimulates growth processes.”1


The Daily Practice – Your daily practice should include the Inner work such as reduce stressors AND increase love and joy.  It should also include External work to eliminate toxins and increase energy from nature and healing tools.  We are all different, so our practices will be different.

  1. A couple times a day, or as needed, read or listen to inspiring messages.
  2. Review your Journal from Step 2 and add any new issues, check in to see which ones need attention and do some healing.
  3. Meditate or do Quantum Touch remembering to give yourself Love, Approval and Gratitude.
  4. Go outside to be in nature, use energy devices, drink structured water, use essential oils.
  5. Avoid toxins in your food, water and personal care products.

Appendix A

I have been studying and using energy healing for over 10 years. I took certification training in Quantum Touch Level 1 and 2.0, I am certified in Quantum Energy Transformation therapies, Awakening Dynamics Levels 1-4.

I have also used many techniques and the ones that I believe are beneficial and easy to learn and use are as follows:

Emotional Energy Healing Techniques

Energy Healing and The Art of Awakening by Alain and Jody Herriott.  I have been using this process for a few months and it combines my favorite thing from other methods.  I love it but it might not be right for people who are new to working with energy.  EHS Bookstore

Healing Code by Alex Loyd and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) aka Tapping are both popular and effective techniques that are easy to learn. They use hand and arm movements that may be challenging.  EHS Bookstore

Release Technique.  The reason I like it is it clears stress and trauma and it trains you to change the energy of your thoughts which increases your personal vibrational frequency.  When you are done with a releasing session, you feel lighter and more at peace like you’ve meditated for a half hour.  Release Technique website

Love or Above by Christie Marie Sheldon is a wonderful audio program that teaches you how to work with energy and how to clear limiting beliefs and blocks to health and abundance.  Love or Above

Ho’oponopono –  A Hawaiian healing prayer

I am sorry – Please forgive me – Thank you – I love you

Focus on any issue you want to heal, say and feel into this prayer. There are books and videos on this.


Other Energy Healing Techniques

Quantum Touch by Richard Gordon is very easy to learn and can be used by someone with no energy healing experience.  There are two books, online course and live workshops.  I use it all the time, but it doesn’t heal emotional issues. EHS Bookstore
