The butterfly effect is the idea that something minor can have a non-linear impact on a complex system. This concept is pictured as a butterfly flapping its wings and causing a typhoon. Of course, this is a seriously over-exaggerated image, but any small ripple can certainly serve as a catalyst that acts on something with greater severity to impact in your life.
Letting a snowball roll downhill, will collect more snow and created a larger ball of snow. Similarly, if we hold onto any type of negativity within us, that negativity expands and grows, wreaking havoc in your body. Having lived a life that was less than perfect like most of us have, I had grown accustomed to holding some negative things in my mind which has made my body very sick at various points in my life. It wasn't until I was dealing with the after effects of cancer, that I learned most about mind, body and spirit, and the power of your thoughts.
Here is a very personal example of my own butterfly effect. I was taught very early on that children should be seen and not heard. So from a very young age, I learned to quiet my voice. I wasn't able to speak my truth or able to have an opinion; or so I thought. From holding in my truth for so long, I successfully developed thyroid cancer. Also the poem, “Children Learn What They Live”, by Dorothy Nolte, has taught me so very much. “If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty”, was the verse that always hit home for me. Growing up in a world of shame helped me feel guilty about everything in life, including if the sun didn't shine. Sadly, that's not an exaggeration.
The physical and emotional healing I've done in my life due to this illness, was bittersweet. While I wouldn't wish anyone to go through the horrific time in my life of healing that I did, I can now say that I was blessed with the lesson. My body screamed in warning at me for a very long time, but I just didn't listen. Of course I would become sick at some point while ignoring the signs, but I had no idea at the time. It was then that I realized the power of my mind through my own personal healer.
I took many different paths and roadways to do my own personal healing. But my personal healer was nothing short of what I considered my miracle. She saved my life! She helped me to heal my physical body and the awful symptoms that go along with having no thyroid with regular Reiki treatments. More importantly, she was able to break down emotional barriers to truly determine the root of the negativity being held on to. This is what created my physical illness in the first place.
At a certain point during one of my Reiki sessions, I realized that all of my issues began with my thoughts and how I treated myself. These negative thoughts about myself had such a ripple effect in my life. I was successfully living in a life without self-love and neglected myself for so long that I manifested cancer. I'm as sure as I'm breathing today, that if that lesson never came to me, I'd have another form of cancer down the road.
I remember feeling so much love during my first Reiki session, that uncontrollable tears rolled down my face. When the session was finished, my healer hugged me with all of her being and I remember thinking that this is a woman who doesn't even know me; how could she have this much love for me? After replaying that first session in my head many times, the light bulb started to flicker with the realization that I don't love me. That's when my healing began. Now, I work on loving me every day!
I know I keep coming back to this, but love yourself! Every hardship or trying time that we go through, is simply a lesson. If you choose to view it as such, only then, will you begin your own healing journey. Try to find the lesson in every experience and use those lessons to learn, grow and heal. It will make all the difference in your life. This is what I wish for everyone; to truly learn how to heal mind, body and spirit as one! If you'd like to talk about ways to heal your life contact me.
Love and light to you!

The first chakra, our Root Chakra, is our first point of energetic contact that we make with the earth. The word “chakra” is Sanskrit for the word wheel, or energy center, and is a point of emotional, physical and spiritual energy in the human body. Everything in the universe is energy, including ourselves. Each chakra in our body is a spinning vortex of life force energy that regulates all of the physical body processes, from organ function and immune systems to emotions, intellect and spirituality. Their function is to vitalize the physical body, so it's ideal to have all chakra centers clear and balanced for optimal well-being.
The first chakra, our root chakra is arguably the most important chakra we have and can be the root of all issues in your life if it's blocked or not in balance. This chakra soaks up the energy from the earth and distributes it through our body and to each of the other chakras. This chakra deals with earthly grounding and physical survival. It also bridges the physical body with the mind to restore a healthy energy flow. It's the foundation on which we build our life.
When the root chakra is imbalanced or blocked, it can cause blockages to our entire energetic body, manifesting itself into physical ailments, illness or disease. Blockages here can also reverberate throughout our entire body resulting in headaches, migraines and even depression. We may feel symptoms of selfishness, the inability to relax, abandonment or even depression. Physical symptoms of an unbalanced root can usually be felt in the lower extremities of the body such as constipation, poor circulation, or restless leg syndrome to name just a few. If you experience any more than one or two of these symptoms, you may need a little bit of work on you root chakra to bring it back to balance.
Being that our root chakra is the first and deals with grounding, it's no wonder why there is so much pain, illness and disease in our bodies today. To correct any imbalance in the root chakra, we literally have to work from the ground up. The way I personally get grounded is to stand barefoot on the earth, or getting my hands in the dirt while gardening. All of my meditations begin in just that way. Standing on the ground in bare feet and in your mind's eye, allowing roots to grow from your feet deep down into the earth will begin the grounding and centering process. Try it out....see how it feels. Then notice how the rest of your body begins to feel.
Remember, each chakra in our body is a life force energy that regulates all of the physical body processes, from organ function and immune systems to emotions, intellect and spirituality. If you'd like to learn more about chakras and how to heal your life, start with your chakra energy centers and see how you can manifest a balanced and healthy physical body.
