The Best of Both Worlds

DSCN0096I really enjoy Janet’s calm, it is contagious; I could feel myself being taken by her words, and really enchanted by her voice. Brilliant woman, enough drive and concern to keep her practice alive and available to her clients, to keep on educating herself, documenting a research that is ever present; and all that covered with passion for human life and respect for nature, empathy and foresight.

You can say that Janet does a good job at healing, as she accomplishes what she intends to do; but her empathy and compassion take her healings a step further. Janet lives her work. She takes the extra step, digs deeper, finds and implements another discipline; whatever it takes to acquire a different perspective, a different angle, until a way to tackle the issue at hand is found. She digs deeper even when relief is found; she keeps on searching until cause arises.

The fact that Janet is a licensed counselor gives her a different angle, an understanding of the human psyche and its troubles from a clinical perspective that she integrates seamlessly with nature and source, spirit; she becomes a bridge between the material/empirical and spiritual worlds in more ways than one.

Janet strives on bringing together new techniques to old arts, experience and postulates. Brilliant ideas come from innovation and Janet is paving the way. She is in the cutting edge of Energy Healing, Energy psychology, a revolutionary way of looking at health from cell health and energy as the building blocks of all that constitute us. As above so bellow, we are only the sum of the health of our cells and what they store in them, nutrients or toxins, calm and well being or anxiety or fear.

Chakras and meridians are cleared, nutrition is balanced, all is forgiven; perfect balance of body mind and spirit energies.

Janet has a healing practice, both local and over the internet, as she does remote healing and skype consultation, but she also shares her knowledge and tips for a healthy happy living on her books, Pathways to Wholeness: Walking Meditation, Mindful Breathing, Bio-Energetic Healing and Spiritual Development and Nurturing Wellness Through Radical Self-Care: A Living in Balance Guide and Workbook, both great reads and very helpful.

You can get reach Janet through her webpage

where you can find information about her practice, experience, availability and books.

She is also in FaceBook

Healers of the New Age

As today’s society is changing so is the way we see our lives, our expectations and needs. We have janetnestorcome a long way as humans, no that we have evolved greatly since the time of the first Homo sapiens was identified, or have we? Homo sapiens reached anatomical modernity 200,000 years ago, erect posture, opposable thumb, complex brains and societies, and we reached social modernity at about 50,000 years ago. Since then we have gone through many trail and error times, testing and implementing, failing and succeeding, or what they system thinks that is succeeding. Times of change may not be the best for the individual, but it is good for the survival of the species.

We, as a race and as a society keep on evolving at a real fast pace, adapting to the changes in the world, most of which we, ourselves create.

At some points in history revolutions have brought advancement and progress, but in most cases something had to be sacrificed. In nature, and in our sheltered society as well, in order for something new to arise, something else has to be destroyed. And by that principle we run our society. Instead of evolving through the principle of keeping what works and discarding what doesn’t, we have been living in a cycle of being right and building and being wrong and destroying. As a society we have been Nature centered, and although men could not understand the world around them, they cherished and used respectfully for their advancement, learning the ways of nature, adapting to it and growing with it. Later on, and mostly in the Western society,  the world and culture became Theo centered, times in which humans “forgot” all knowledge regarding nature and healing, giving all the power of free will up, trusting in god and only god to run their lives, with nothing that humans could do to change their destiny other than to adore god. This times were followed by the industrial revolutions, a time in which science took over, bringing us an understanding of the physical world as we see it, as we touch it, but not as how we feel it. God started to have a secondary place in human life. Science gave humans a sense of security, as the understanding of how and why things work started to surface. Eventually science and mechanical inventions made human life more comfortable, easier to negotiate.  But is doesn’t stop there. We are now getting to the stage in which we can merge Natural/inspired knowledge with industrial advancement and technological information sharing. We can put it all to work with us. It seems to be a perfect time to integrate all of them and make best use of the resources

We have healers that find their information and training through Internet sites and attend webbased, training programs; they heal with herbs and energy, consulting with their clients in a Skype virtual meeting. Healing has never known frontiers; it can travel with energy and love to the person next to you as well as to a person living in the other side of the planet or a forming star in the edge of the Universe.  With this New Technology people in need and healers can get in touch more readily, still using the ethers to be the healing medium.

This technology has also allowed for healers to adopt and combine different therapies and disciplines, making their practices more varied being able to access a wider range of public needs. Having access to other cultures, other peoples has always been enriching. Right now we have that access deep, ancient knowledge, as the world grows smaller and smaller with each keystroke.

This past week I had the chance to experience just that, a social network connection turned in to a healing. I was feeling miserable, and in fact, I had been in bed for a whole day, and I knew it could be a few more days before I was back on my feet. I got in contact with a fantastic woman that I met in twitter, thanks to the new technology and social developments, Janet Nestor, an incredible energy healer as well as a professional counselor and a very compassionate woman. She offered help and I accepted. I felt relieved within a few hours of our conversation, out of bed and completely refreshed the next morning. What is even more, Janet was able to point out the emotional cause of my illness, which is directly related to my path of growth right now.

Janet is a perfect example of the modern healer. She is educated and conscientious, trained and proficient in several healing techniques and uses the Internet to do some of her work and outreaching.

Because I found her to be a gifted healer as well as a very modern an adapted professional I invited Janet to give us further understanding of her art and the many ways that she uses her gift to help and guide others towards health and balance.

Healing with Alice McCall

Very informative, really entertaining, deeply healing; that s what this past Tuesday’s show was. It DSCN0624- went from realization to deeper understanding, passing through, heightened awareness and deep direction all through the program.

Alice brought us a new understanding of health and well being, not just looking inside, spiritually, but to the point where our body meets our soul, the cellular level, cellular memory and dynamics.

Alice talked about how we keep negative thoughts, experiences, beliefs and memories in our cells at an energetic/biological level, how cells can keep toxins and unhealthy believes alike, one being the precursor of the other, how our bodies, being energy, get affected by the energy of trauma. Events that we could consider done and over with may resurface days, months and even years later; Alice proposes that these issues may even be originated in the womb or in past lives and get to affect us right here, right now.

We heard Alice, and her testimony is incredible, really hopeful and enlightened. But is it also too good to be true? How is it that getting rid of traumas and even fears can make us happier, healthier? Visit Alice’s page and you will see how many testimonials she has collected, people ravish and rage regarding her care and their results If that is what people have to say about their experience, it certainly sounds like an option to me.

On top of personal testimony ad experience, we can look at it from a more scientific angle; more and more scientist are talking about matter really being energy, our world being just a perception of energy that vibrates on our same frequency, how at a quantum level we are just a group of particles acting in regards to the energy vibrating within us and around us, including other people, animals, the trees and even starts and the entire Universe.

There are a lot of questions and it looks like we are getting more answers, through faith and thought spirituality, but through science as well; we are finding how holistic believes and scientific data is getting closer by the minute, the actual facts and results speaking for themselves.

I loved the fact that Alice gave us some tools to use in order to start out healing. A grievance journal to record and forgive all grievances in our lives, letting go of pain, of rancor and fear, bringing in love and hope, joy! Alice has done even more than that,  she has written a book in which she gives us more tools, more clues and in many instances,  just hope hope.


Deeper Healing

We are in the times of the alternative option, alternative medicine, alternative life style. We are alice mccallchanging the way we live by changing the way we think, eat, clean or even the way we relate to others and our selves.

We live in a time in which we are starting to look at things differently. We don’t have to take anybody’s word as the truth or only alternative. We don’t have to take opinions as truths, as we can look for different options such as second opinions, additional information and even alternative ways of doing things. We live in the times of information, but we are also living through a very interesting enlightened times, in which we are starting to understand that pills and plastic don’t solve everything if anything, and that it is ok to go against Western medical tradition.

We are learning that what we say to others we say to ourselves, that chastising our actions only bring more grief…we are learning that our bodies and health are influenced by our thoughts, we even just found out that words and sounds can change gene expressions. We are learning a lot, and we are becoming more whole.

Somehow science is starting to catch up with the healing arts. Through science we are starting to understand customs and uses of our ancestors, of other cultures, that so far we have deemed as uncivilized, ignorant, incapable of scientific though, thus incapable of true knowledge. We are learning and letting the knowledge sip through our skins and change our lives. I am not saying that all of us are awakening at the same speed, or that most of us understand the implications of such statements as “We are All One”, “We are All Star Dust”, just pointing out that there is more awareness, more curiosity and much, much more information available to quench our thirst for knowledge, for options, for alternatives.

A very interesting wholistic approach to health is cellular level healing. The idea is that our cells are repository of nutrients and DNA but also our emotions and memories. When there is damage to any of the bodies that compose our being, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, the memory and trauma is stored in the cells of our body disarranging the natural harmony and energy of the body. All these bring emotional and physical illness as well as mental and spiritual. A very interesting healing concept that is gaining momentum through the practices of certain gifted healers.

To talk about healing and alternative medicine, and in particular to talk to us more about cellular level healing I have invited Alice McCall, a healer for many years who started her journey by healing herself in 2001 and getting inspired thereafter to share her knowledge and gift.

Please join us Tuesday February 4th at 8 PM PST for a very interesting talk about a different, even revolutionary, way of healing

Mare Cromwell

Mare, a world of knowledge, a well of soul; she brought us her light, she is very determined to marecromshare, Mother told her to do it.

Mare speaks as she writes, with the determination and self-assurance of those that have a mission, that know their path; she can talk for hours about the Mother and her lessons, and about her very personal relationship with Her, with nature, healing, ancient knowledge…just knowledge, inherited by all men an women, acknowledged by few. She has been closed to the earth most of her life, to Nature, to plants. Being a sacred gardener, a shaman apprentice and a plant whisperer, Mare has been granted a different angle, a different perspective by understanding, by closeness and sense of kin. She learned to heal by healing herself, by listening to herself and to her body. Mare listened to her body to discover that something was leading her in the right direction, the path of healing. She healed her body healing her spirit, getting united with Nature, with Mother Earth…Listening to the wise words of a shaman and the sure inspiration of her yearning spirit; learning to trust Nature, her Nature and her connection to sacred Mother, the connection that we all have with Mother Earth.

She is an author and a messenger, or is it the other way around? Mare talks about her being instructed to write, when to do it and how. Mother is loving but demanding, taking Mare for a ride of the senses, an awareness of source, guiding her closely on her journey. Giving mother, attending daughter, Mare tells us we are all of that quality; we can all listen and contribute. It is in all of us to reach out spirituality through our feminine energy, our birthright to be women and to be strong, in our own right, by our own power.

Healing without Medicine, Spirituality without Church

For the past few centuries Western society has been following a pattern that has brought us to a marevery materialistic world, in which we expect to achieve goals immediately, whether it is to get thinner, healthier, comfortable or mentally balanced. We are in the times of massive consumerism where everything is a business, including our health, where everything can be fixed with machines and pills, our food enhanced with chemicals and our bodies fixed with the knife and scalpel.

But is that really healthy, are the long-term consequences to have a quick fix worth the side effects on our environment and us?

Our air is polluted, not to talk about the water. Our foods are extensively processed and laced with substances to enhance flavor and shelf-life, we are a medicated society, getting pills for every thought of malady, plus the side effects of those pills. Along all these, and maybe as a consequence of it all, some folks are returning to the earth, Mother Earth, to the beginnings, to the old wives remedies and ancient cultures; the remedies of the Earth, natural ways of restoring the body and mind, living a clean, non polluted life. Some are coming up and standing as spiritual leaders, claiming to have been enlightened, some others report having discovered a healthy way of life, making a living and a life out of helping others become healthy, from the inside out.

We are seeing a strong current of people that refuse medication and search for modified diets and medicinal herbs, Mother Nature recipes to keep mankind healthy and happy, a change of values and goals is usually included in this cocktail. Some of the claim to have healed themselves and others, but main stream science and doctors call them quack and in many cases the law prosecutes this individuals, claiming that they are a danger for public health and stability, placing people in harms way by giving them hope of healing without Western Medicine.

And you think that the movement would wind down with so much opposition from authority, and I am sure that some folks somehow feel deterred by doctors and medical professionals opinion, but the truth is that we are finding more healers, more naturopaths, herbologists and lightworkers, among many other types of healers every time we look around. Why is that? Is it that they really have tapped in to something that the rest of us don’t really have had the opportunity to experience? Many of the claim that they had experiences with Western Medicine in which they felt let down by the doctors and procedures, so they decided to try a different approach, and voila, they got cured and now they feel compelled to share their experience through private practice, counseling, books and seminars. Are they really and alternative? Are they an option as a way to stay healthy holistically, from the inside out? or is it even just an option for people that can’t find answers in a more conservative approach to their health? Are they really effective? Is it safe to trust your health to people that don’t have medical training acquired in a University from practicing doctors, but healing art training directed by a Shaman or another healer. Are inspiration and experience means to acquire the knowledge needed to heal someone?

Many of these aforementioned healers have been in medical paradigms themselves, in which they claim to have healed themselves and learned what the deeper meaning of disease is, bringing up a different way, or ways, to approach particular maladies or even health in general. Are those that have been wounded ready to heal, and actually effective at it because they are wounded themselves, wanting to heal through the healing of others?

There are many questions regarding this new age trend and to start answering some of our questions I have invited Mare Cromwell. Mare is an award-winning author that has written two books on spirituality, has trained numerous years with a Native American Shaman and has cured herself from cancer. I know that we will have a very interesting conversation, finding answers to many of our questions and opening up a new array of possibilities in healing and self-acknowledgment, that while may not be for everyone, may be helpful to some of us to clarify concepts and options. Knowledge is power.

Please help me welcome Mare this Tuesday January 28 at 8 PM PST for a fabulous conversation about Mother Earth, healing and alternative views of life; I hope to see you there.


With a Roof over her Head

Homelessness is a big problem in America and all over the world for that matter; thousands of Andrea2people sleep in the streets of this country every night, the lucky ones have a car where they can “crash” for the night. Others make it to shelters and family’s spare rooms, which although temporary, are a much better choice than the cold sidewalk.

Mostly for  women, it is a rough world out there, and the physically weakest have the hardest time. We have come a long way since the sexual revolution, but still we, as women, are at disadvantage when in the “outskirts” of society. It is cold and rough, you eat on the run when you have food, or not eat. Soup kitchens and homeless shelters, a respite that is not a solution, just a temporary patch till the next opportunity arises.

It is also a very unforgiving world; it is not easy to come out of the street, to get a job, a permanent place and stability. Not having an address, a place to take a shower, proper clothes makes it difficult to present yourself to an interview; depression, misery and mental illness settles in; imperceptive at first, making head pretty soon, taking the best out of that person, getting the hope and the drive to thrive, to live.

Being homeless is a hard place to be, and a place from where not too many people come out. It is a hole and a trap; it is a nightmare that seems too far away, yet it is at our doorstep.

In the times that we live in no one of us is exempt from the thought “will I ever be homeless” as most of American households live a paycheck away from poverty. A sword over our heads that is always present but always ignored. We still think that it will not happen to us, we work hard, we have a family, we are decent people. But that has nothing to do with how we may end up. Life if full of surprises and it isn’t always fair, and we find ourselves in a bind. We find that we don’t have a place to call ours, ready food or money to procure it all, we find that we are in a place we didn’t plan to be, we have miss-stepped. We are in trouble, and what we have left is the street and the cold nights, the uncertainty and the despair. Lacking belonging and roots is emotionally distressful and not having a place to call home is very disorienting, throws us off our comfort zone, makes it a deeper hole than it was to being with. People that are homeless have a really hard time getting back in to mainstream society, almost impossible if we are to trust statistics

But some people do it; some people have a strike of bad luck and are able to get back on their feet. I have been talking a lot with survivors of different trauma, and I am getting to the conclusion that we all have it in ourselves, that we are all survivors. The difference between those who make it and those that stay in the side of the road is the knowledge that one can, that the wisdom and strength reside right in our own heart

Making stepping-stones and opportunities out of discouragement and failure is the life of a true warrior, a life that is worth living. Andrea, a young woman knows what I am talking about. Andrea was homeless as a teenager and suffered separation from her loved ones while the situation was sorted out. She had to move from her home state and live at a relative’s place while her mother got things resolved. But Andrea wasn’t just waiting for things to get better; she was feeling, wishing and working towards a better future. While still in school she got a guitar and started playing; today she has helped her family to come out of the streets and be reunited, she is an independent young woman, with a bright future ahead of herself and lots of dreams.

Please join us Tuesday November 26 at * PM PST to welcome this young warrior with the voice of an angel
