Don’t wait for that ‘Wake Up’ call!

Today, I had one of those light bulb moments and was stopped in my tracks, to find myself re-evaluating life once again, looking in from the outside.  I saw myself looking though the lens of the soul.  I crossed paths with an incredible young lady, who reminded me of God’s special gift  LIFE!!  At the mere age’s of 17 and 19 we were both delivered life changing experiences that left us with severe head injuries, internal bleeding, amongst other injuries, leaving us both fighting for our lives in intensive care under different circumstances.  I was left with the after effects of a Stroke and paralysed on the right side of my body down, couldn’t speak without slurring, sounding like I was drunk and reverted back to the emotional age of a child again. This lady, a courageous soul was paralysed from the neck down and left for dead after being raped and flung from a 75 ft cliff.  Her mission now is to help others wake up to the Gift they’ve been given.  I was so struck by her story, it brought me to tears knowing that I had had such a life changing experience myself and yet in my early 30’s I allowed myself to forget who I really was at my core and the spirit of life,  lost in life’s struggles, my stories and drama, before being hit by another boulder at the age of 34 to start shaking me out of my deluded bubble. And life always finds a way of doing this, usually when we continue to ignore the inner nudges from our own intuition that are telling us something is out of alignment in our lives and we need to course correct, e.g. we feel stuck and suppressed in a relationship that is not bringing out the best in us, or in a job which we hate or we are experiencing extreme stress in our business. Life usually finds a way to wake us up. Usually in the form of a symptom or illness. Stress in our life is the biggest cause of illness, so any imbalances in our life shows up in the form of stress or fear and when allowed to become too intense moves to the body.  Your body is mirror reflection of what is going on in your conscious and unconscious mind, so any intense stress or fear can manifest in the form of a symptom or dis-ease in the body – the Wake Up call!!!   From my own experience, research, and the incredible people I have interviewed, in my work there is much room for this conversation. I do believe that we can heal our bodies from so much with faith, belief, the right tools and mindset.  Most of all by opening up to loving ourselves unconditionally and allowing ourselves to just be who we really are.  Listening to what our body wants to tell us, tuning into this intuitively.  We know ourselves and our bodies better than anyone and can do so much to bring ourselves back into wholeness.  I could say so much about this and will in another article. God delivers his miracles and gifts in so many ways and we were given ours – a wake up call and another LIFE!!   God, Universe, Higher Self call it what you will, its all the same thing.  For anyone having suffered severe trauma which has had a profound effect on your life psychologically, emotionally or physically, it shakes you up, helping you realise that you shouldn’t sweat the small stuff! And it’s all small stuff, (even if you...

Get Your Life Back from ME

Get Your Life Back from ME

Kelly  Oldershaw, 30, Crawley, healed herself from the debilitating condition, ME ‘Imagine feeling trapped in your own body barely able to speak for yourself, think for yourself let alone go to the bathroom or getting dressed unaided … that was me at 17 years old but I was only one of 250,000 sufferers in the UK, living in the dark with ME, (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). Night after night I suffered from acute insomnia, muscle pains, severe headaches, dizziness and my head felt wooly.  I was totally wiped out, like my body had run a marathon.  Most of my days were spent watching the world go by outside my bedroom window.  I was missing out on the best times, as my quality of life was non-existent. Relationship’s, going out with friend’s, hobbies and setting future plans were not in my reach. My light had gone out. I hardly recognise myself anymore, neither did anyone else. Doctor’s finally diagnosed me with ME just before my 18 Birthday.  ‘Happy Birthday Kelly!’  Not quite how I envisaged spending my 18th – exhausted in bed. My life was crumbling around me. I was too exhausted to work or do anything and at this point I sank into depression.  I felt completely in the dark with my illness with nowhere to turn, which only sent me spinning further into my nightmare.  ME is not a life threatening illness, but for some it can become so.  For me, it certainly had, I couldn’t cope with living this way.  Being struck down by an illness where 80% of sufferer’s struggle to get better and recovery for those that do is slow … I like so many had no where to turn, as modern medicine had yet to come up with a recovery plan. My light had gone out. I hardly recognise myself anymore, neither did anyone else.  I lost my confidence, self-esteem, friends, job and most of my young life and to this day have never been in love. The turnaround started for me the moment I discovered a support group in 1998.  I was elated I’d found some help only my heart sank when I turned up one evening to be greeted by so many sufferers in wheelchairs.  At that point I made a decision, I wasn’t going to just exist, I wanted to be happy and live again … I was going to beat it! I started to see complementary therapists, different Doctor’s etc, nothing I tried seemed to work for long though, until I changed things about myself, my limiting beliefs had to go and I became more authentic by steering my life in a direction I was happy with.  I began to see how this illness was helping me to learn more about myself, helping me to grow spiritually. I began meditating regularly and visualising myself getting better.  I found a private Endocrinologist who was able to confirm I had an under active thyroid and adrenal fatigue.  He put me on a nutritional plan along with supplements, a glandular adrenal supplement from Nutri, Vitamin C, omega 3,6 and 9 and a multivitamin.   I also made time to honor my body with regular yoga sessions, which were great for my mind, body and spirit.  Within a short time I started to feel good again and my symptoms started to pale into existence until eventually they disappeared. I’m 29 now and fully recovered, feeling great. My mission is to help other ME sufferer’s by providing support and help through a recovery program myself and business partner Elaine Wilkins, (another ME sufferer) have developed, (which also offers...

I Never Knew My Father…

Posted by on Mar 20, 2011 in Blog, Inspirational Stories | 0 comments

Anna Parkinson, 55 Kent, BBC Producer, Journalist & Author Anna claims she healed herself from a Brain Tumor. She has moved on to help others using the Body Mirror System, pioneered by Martin Brofman, Healer and Author of Anything can be Healed. “The crippling headaches started in June 1997 and for some years after this I was backwards and forwards to the hospital, but no one reached a diagnosis. Doctors put the headaches and double vision down to migraine, only I knew it was more serious than just migraine as the headaches worsened and the double vision and dizziness became a daily occurrence. Then in Autumn 2002 after suddenly being struck by breathtaking pains to the back of the head I was summoned to my local Neurology Department. This time the consultant said it was a brain tumor and it had to come out either by cutting down the side of my nose or lifting my brain to one side and taking it out that way. This news left my husband and I speechless. But, luckily as it turned out, the surgeon, Mr. Michael Powell at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London told me he couldn’t operate as the tumor was growing around the carotid artery. After being delivered what felt like a slow death sentence, I was forced to wonder, ‘what can I do about this?’ The medical experts could do nothing so I realised I needed to take responsibility for my own body. I wasn’t prepared to give up or die. My half sister, Sarah Jane had been sending me information on Martin Brofman, a healer who she’d heard speaking in London. I had had no experience of healing before and was hesitant, but realised I had nothing to lose. I made an appointment with Martin and he explained that he worked with the idea that the body is a mirror of the consciousness. My healing with Martin helped me see how the tumor was connected with childhood emotions that stemmed from a difficult relationship with my father. This had caused tensions in my body that eventually manifested as disease. The medical experts could do nothing so I realised I needed to take responsibility for my own body. The revelation that came next clinched it for me. I had been writing a book about an ancestor called John Parkinson. He was Charles I’s herbalist and published important books about herbs in the 17th Century. One of these was priceless to my father who had died in 1995. Immediately after the healing I realised that I was unearthing my ancestor’s history to make some kind of connection with my father, I had even written, ‘I never lived with my father,’ in the second sentence of my book. At the age of 42 I still believed deep down that he wasn’t interested in me. I knew now I had to release these feelings I had carried around for so long if I was going to continue to heal. For many months I continued my healing myself using meditating to release old feelings and visualising my recovery daily – imagining the diseased cells dissolving and being taken away. I became more in touch with myself and understood how my emotions and thoughts create my reality. Scans taken over the next few years at regular intervals showed the tumor to be shrinking, by December 2005 I was discharged by the hospital as the tumor was declared insignificant. I am convinced this was due to the healing and visualising it as gone. I consider my illness to have been...

Body Mirror System Healing

Posted by on Mar 10, 2011 in Blog, Inspirational Stories | Comments Off on Body Mirror System Healing

Martin Brofman, 69 Switzerland, International Workshop Leader & Author of Anything can be Healed, claims he healed himself from spinal cancer “I was working on Wall Street living the so called, ‘American dream,’ but inside I was deeply unhappy.   In January 1975, the symptoms started. I was unable to walk properly and suffered severe pains in the neck and my right arm was paralysed.  I became terribly ill and was diagnosed in April that year with Spinal Cancer. Doctors explained that surgery was essential but not without it’s risks – I could end up a quadriplegic or even die during surgery.  I went through a host of emotions, the things people go through when they are facing the worst possible scenario… death.  Eventually I reached an area of acceptance, it was a very intense moment like this wave of energy passed through me.  After this colours were bright and my senses more alive.  I felt totally present and accepted the possibility of dying. My surgeon was unable to remove the tumor without cutting the spinal cord, so leaving the tumor untouched they sent me home with a few months to live unless I coughed or sneezed – they explained this could kill me immediately.  This period of my life was like having a conversation with death. As the months passed I decided if I lived until the New Year I was going to celebrate on vacation in Martinique in the Caribbean.   It was here my life changed.  I met a Zen Master who was staying at the same resort.  We sat talking over a drink about life, healing and consciousness, something which interested me considerably.  He told me, ‘It’s all in the mind, and that’s precisely where you need to go to get rid of it.’  He introduced me to the Silvar Method, which is a combination of meditation, visualisation’s and affirmations. Time was not on my side and I didn’t want to die, so mustering all the strength and determination I could to beat it, I embarked on a journey of self-healing and discovery.  I started meditating everyday, believing wholeheartedly I was already healed and constantly affirming to myself I was getting better, even when the striking pains struck. I played with daily visualisations, imagining being in the doctors room and being told on my next examination that the tumor had disappeared. Two months later I returned to hospital for an examination to be told exactly that … the tumor had vanished!  Doctor’s could find no sign of the lump and no explanation for its disappearance. I realised that the Cancer was a metaphor for the stressful lifestyle I had been living, so I made a decision to release it.  At this time I was researching Eastern traditions and esoteric philosophies and consciousness. This spurred me on create the Body, Mirror System, which looks at the body as a map of the consciousness.   A symptom in particular part of body reflects tension in the consciousness resulting from some area of you life that is not in balance. You can see a connection between what is happening in the body and the consciousness.  To release the symptom on physical level you have to release tension in the consciousness by changing the way you think and respond to your environment. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone but Cancer gave me a gift, it was a real teacher for me to start living and doing what makes me happy.  I now teach Body, Mirror System workshops in the UK and abroad helping others to heal themselves.” Note… Complementary...
