Allow yourself to embrace change. Life is not stagnant and each day brings something new to dwell on and deal with. I notice the perception that time is accelerating at a very fast pace. The ebb and flow of life cannot be stopped. Taking time to pay attention to what is going on in the present moment is so important. Living life in the here and now is the key.
Lately, I have been caught up in not only changes within me but also in the life of those close to me. Townhouse sold and vacated; apartment packed into a huge container truck to travel across country towards a new beginning. Our house where my husband and I have lived for over 40 years is now up for sale.
When life seems to be spinning out of control it is so important to keep yourself grounded. I do this through my daily meditation practice. Knowing myself on a very deep level and developing an understanding of what it is I value and want in my life has helped to change many of my beliefs. Looking at the bigger picture of my life I see it unfolding spontaneously and freely.
Navigating through times of change can be stressful but believing that the universe will be there to guide and assist is what makes all the difference. Having confidence to go forward with no regrets is empowering me on this journey.

Being in touch with my own power has made me evolve into more of who I am at the core of my being. To reach that center I spend time in silence sometimes in nature away from the noise of everyday life, or perhaps in meditation where I can simply be. This is my peaceful time, a time to replenish my creative spirit. I energetically know everything about myself. I know when I am out of balance realizing that it is time to go back to the stillness and recharge.
Changes in life are inevitable. The more I can let the flow happen organically the more I realize the vibrational shift that is taking place within me. I give myself permission to transcend to the next level by taking action and renewing my life inside and out.
When chaos occurs I have found within me the skills to remain centered and calm, not allowing negativity to embrace me. If I appear to be nonattached I have discovered the ability to be able to just stand back and be myself; free from letting go of any preconceived outcomes or expectations or even from buying into egotistical points of view. As an intuitive surveyor, I am able to observe and appreciate what may be taking place around me and not have to become involved in the negative energy.
I am writing a new story for myself where I have given myself permission to live my life on my terms and follow my heart and passions in whatever it is I wish to do. I have stopped pushing so hard and look forward to all new changes that are happening in my life. I am letting go of clutter and seeing how lighter it makes me feel. I am letting go of friendships that do not resonate with me on a vibrational level. I am reading fiction again after many years of being only caught up in nonfiction. I am being transported back in time with these stories and enjoying every minute of how life was back in those long ago days. I appreciate all I have brought with me to this new place in my life but I am open to acquiring new skills and new ways of being me.

There are a lot of queries regarding the field of medical intuition. There is certainly a great deal of interest in the subject. Speaking with Helen Whittle, who is a certified medical intuitive,your questions are answered.
Q Barbara: How does medical intuition work?
A Helen: Medical Intuition is a science, where the medical intuitive practitioner uses their highly developed sense of intuition to source the cause of an emotional,spiritual,or physical condition in a client’s energy field. The medical intuitive has the ability to discern where perhaps a personal trauma may have caused an emotional block somewhere in the client’s body.Working with the client on an energetic level will allow buried emotions to arise and release. These emotions could date back to childhood or even back to another lifetime.Releasing these emotions creates a shift in the energy and healing can begin.
Q Sally: Does a medical intuitive diagnose?
A Helen: No only a medical doctor is allowed to diagnose.
Q Brian: Does the client have to see the medical intuitive in person?
A Helen: No not at all.the client can be on the other side of the world. All that is required is a first name, age and permission. The medical intuitive can intuitively tune in remotely to the client’s energy. A certified medical intuitive will be able to give as much information as they can access. Emotions and thoughts may come to the foreground.These may be unresolved that perhaps the client did not realize they were still holding unto,but that were creating energetic shifts in their body.

Who has heard the word Medical Intuitive? Certainly not me when I went for a reading with a psychic. Her words to me were “you are going to become a medical intuitive.” Her words rang in my head as within a week I was invited to attend a workshop run by the director of a college for medical intuition. I had always wondered how I could combine my intuition and my work as a holistic nutritionist. Could this be the answer? I felt immediately that this would be a path I would explore and follow.
I was fascinated by the history of medical intuition. It dates way back to the 18th century when Phineas Parkhurst Quimby practiced intuitive healing in 1854. Then came Edgar Cayce who is perhaps the most famous medical intuitive. He was known as The Sleeping Prophet because he was able to discern a patient’s health condition from a distance. Thousands of his readings were documented and are still studied today. These readings show the correlation between emotions and suffering in manifesting illness. Over time, the practice of medical intuition has evolved to adapt to modern demands but the fundamentals still remain the same.
A medical intuitive has the talent and skill to energetically scan a person’s internal physiological condition from a distance, and may find where energetic blocks are being held in the body. These energetic blocks may be affecting emotions and overall health of the person. By teaching and guiding the individual through awareness, knowledge and conscious lifestyle choices the medical intuitive helps the individual to improve their health and vitality by actually treating illness from the root cause instead of just the symptom.

COLLAGEN May Hold The Secret To Looking Younger
The new buzzword appears to be collagen. What is collagen and why is it so important as we age? Collagen is the ” glue” that holds the body together. It comes from the Greek word “kola” which means glue.
There are three types of collagen found in the body.
1. Type 1–comprises 90% of the skin, hair, organs and ligaments.
2. Type 2–applies to cartilage.
3. Type 3–applies to fibrous protein in bones, cartilage, dentin, tendons, and other connective tissues.
Let’s focus on ageing and loss of collagen, especially for the skin. Loss of collagen structure begins long before there is any outward signs of ageing. From 25 years on a person may lose 1% of collagen per year with the insides ageing more rapidly than the skin. Many factors contribute to this loss such as; smoking, poor diet, free radicals and of course getting older.
The signs of aging seem to appear visible around the eyes first including:
1–Fine lines and wrinkles.
2–Under eye bags.
3–Dark circles and discolouration.
4–Dull uneven skin texture.
6–Crows feet due to loose tissue around eyes.
There are currently products on the market that have been used by people around the world to increase collagen. Collagen can be found in natural health products and food. Researching the highest quality of collagen in products is important whether it is a food or skincare product. Gelatine ( the breakdown) of collagen was one of the first functional foods used as a medical treatment in ancient China.
Consuming collagen in food or drink and using a skincare product that combines antioxidants, micronutrients, and peptides that have been clinically proven to stimulate collagen growth will certainly address the major signs of aging and maybe the secret to looking younger.
