Aromatherapy Using Essential Oils

Essential oils are used in aromatherapy to treat dis-ease. The fragrances stimulate nerves in the nose, sending impulses to the brain which control memory and emotion. This process stimulates and calms the body. Essential oils help the body to awaken and strengthen an individual's natural energies. Objectives of the class are to: 1) review safe use of oils, types of carrier oils, and suggested doses; 2) discuss properties and use of several essential oils; and 3) create a blend for your own personal use.

Autism – A Spiritual Perspective

The signs and symptoms of autism vary widely, as do its effects.  Some autistic children have only mild impairments, while others have more obstacles to overcome.  Each child’s needs are unique and important.  No diagnostic label can tell you exactly what challenges your child will have.  As a parent, it can be frustrating trying to figure out what is right for your child and for you.  The caregiver needs as much help as the autistic child.  Learn from the experiences of others who have dealt with autism; experience is the best teacher in life.

We are influenced early in life by color. Pinks, blues, yellows, and greens are used to decorate nurseries. When you were given your first box of Crayons, what were your favorite colors then? What are your favorite colors now? Have they changed? Have you changed? Colors say a lot about people.

Become certified in Reiki. Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese word for Universal Life Force. It is a method of natural healing that channels life force energy through the hands. Reiki energy replenishes energy and helps restore mental and emotional clarity and focus. Reiki treats the whole person--the mind, body, and spirit. Reiki energy brings about relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well-being. Reiki energy works because it flows through the afflicted parts of the energy field, charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where negative thoughts and feelings are found, causing the negative energy to break apart and fall away. It clears and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.

Touch for Health (TFH) is the most widely used system of kinesiology in the world. It is recognized and respected as the foundation training for other kinesiology systems as well as being a healing modality in its own right. Energy Medicine, Brain Gym, Energy Kinesiology, and Energy Psychology are all outgrowths of the Touch for Health body of knowledge. TFH Kinesiology can be easily learned by anyone, with a little practice, without any prior knowledge of muscles, physiology, meridians, etc. In TFH we use muscle testing as a method of biofeedback to identify imbalances in the body’s energy system. Utilizing a holistic approach, we re-balance the body’s energies and activate the body’s intrinsic healing process so that the body can better heal itself. The TFH process can also assist individuals to better achieve their life goals and true potential with goal specific balancing.
