Have you ever been in a country where you don’t speak the language? It can be really confusing, can’t it? Depending on how off the beaten track it is, you sometimes aren’t even able to read simple signposts. Even though I’d taught myself a little bit of Russian, that’s how I felt when I was travelling on my own, 30 years ago, and needed to get from the domestic airport in Moscow to the international one. It felt quite scary. At the time I wish I’d had a guide who could translate for me.
Before I began to study Acupuncture, that’s how I felt about my body. I had taken for granted that it would just keep going, but in my thirties I started to realise that, although I spoke a couple of foreign languages, I didn’t speak my body’s language. I was experiencing some confusing symptoms and couldn’t understand why my body was failing me. I felt as bewildered as I had in Moscow and it suddenly became the most important language I had to learn!
Do you ever feel like that?
What if you had a guide who could help you make sense of what your body is trying to say to you?
I’ve been studying the body’s language since I had a serious medical condition in 1991. I began to wonder what signs I’d missed and how it had got to be so bad without me noticing. If you feel like that, there are many different people you can turn to and many books you can read to give you ideas about the steps you can take to start feeling better.
One of the very first books I looked at was “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise L. Hay. She wrote about what your body is trying to tell you with each symptom it develops. Just recognising what might be contributing to me feeling unwell made me begin to believe that I could possibly do something about it … and that’s the feeling I’d like to help you create within yourself!
After all, we only have one body and it makes sense to take care of it, although the pace of life nowadays sometimes means that we are too busy looking after others to stop and listen to what is going on with us … especially us women!
My work now is to help you translate your body’s language. I offer insights into what might be preventing you from feeling totally well and energised, and can suggest a few things you can do as soon as you become aware that things aren’t quite right. I provide you with as much information as you need in order to feel reassured and optimistic that you have the ability to lead a healthy and energised life.
If there is anything specific you would like me to write about please email me and let me know (email@example.com).
