Mental health awareness double film screening for mental health professionals, therapists and peers on 24 November 2017  in Saltburn-by-the-Sea, North East UK – normalising spirituality in mental health

Because Mental Health Matters…an invitation to mental health bodies worldwide to work in tandem together with the holistic practitioner field to change the stigma surrounding mental health issues and the very damaging ‘labelling’ culture in today’s society.

Every healing modality known to humankind is our birth right and every human being has a right to choose from the whole of the medical/complementary techniques which healing modalities they wish to use in their own healing. In the field of holistic practitioners, it is believed that all techniques can work complementary alongside each other in the healing process. Respect is given by holistic practitioners to those in the field of western, eastern, and medical origin. Is it not time then to redress the balance, in showing holistic healing practitioners that same mutual respect? 

No doctorate or professor of science, my work is based in truth. Truth of the Inherent soul. We have no need for pieces of paper full of statistical evidence based information to know the truth of our soul. Our soul sings with LOVE when we follow our inner guidance. When something works for us, it works; we have no need to question how, analyse and pull to shreds that which is inherently given – our bodies own natural power to heal.

We have a choice. We have a right to choose which course of healing we would like, and to make this choice by being informed of all options; be they of western, eastern, medical origin or complementary techniques. Then with the correct support in place, which is vital, rather than be bamboozled into drug induced existences which simply mask that which needs resolving and causing additional issues, there are other ways to heal. It is our birth right to choose what happens to our bodies. I have not endured all that I have both personally and through my work to not know this to be true. Scepticism is fear; fear is based in the ego, and when fear is allowed to breed, it brings with it panic, anxiety, paranoia, depression, bulimia, co-dependency…and there the pattern forms, leading to the damaging ‘labels’ and ‘ism’s’. There are ways of stopping the ego based fears in their tracks, facing them head on. Almost all, of which fears will be illogical.

Yes, I have years of proof, as do millions of other healing practitioners. Proof which, due to client confidentiality can only be told when others *step forward with their healing stories.

The base of my work is pure unconditional LOVE, starting with self. As holistic simply means WHOLE, client work looks at the entire being from the inside out. As practitioners, we are not ‘new age hippies’, weird or whacky, quite simply we work from our true inherent knowledge, that of loving energy. Energy is in everything and there are many and varied ways of carrying out energy healings which help in clearing blocked and stagnant flow not only in people, but animals, homes, offices, cars, land, objects, etc. All forms of energy healing help affect change by causing a shift in the energy vibration.

I believe that All modalities, be they of western, eastern, medical origin or otherwise, are all complementary to each other during the healing process as this holistic approach embraces all aspects of the entire being. Having read a survey, over 30 years ago, that stated 1 in 10 psychiatrists did not believe in schizophrenia rather they believed that another energy (entity) was actually the cause of their clients ‘hearing voices’ I can relate to and have seen face-to-face proof of this in many healing sessions. I believe that many millions of people are unaware that they are actually tuned into their inherent sense of knowing and being, and their natural psychic and healing abilities. Many have been ‘admonished’ for these known senses in early childhood (today’s harmful ‘labelling’) therefore causing great confusion in their minds as they seem forced to battle through societies ‘rules’ which go against their own inherent beliefs. Millions are also living with attached energy that does not belong to them.

Energies can have attached in many ways from being in and around hospitals and operating theatres, cemeteries, crowded places, playing violent computer games, even from watching TV. In the case of addictions such as alcohol or drug abuse often people are carrying around another’s negative energy in their auric fields as when for example, ‘in drink’ an individual is more susceptive to ‘attack’ from these negative energies. There is always more than meets the eye… Even though these other energies, entities that do not belong to an individual can have attached as early as pre-birth, often many attaching when in early childhood or teens years they are nothing to fear and quite simply just need releasing. Using energy healing the aura can be healed and protection taught thus stopping these negative energies from ‘attaching’ themselves to individuals. In unrelenting cases I believe these negative energies cause an imbalance in the nervous system.

The nervous system is the central core of a humans be-ing. When this is unbalanced it creates disharmony on every level, i.e. physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, and has been seen to be very problematic within relationships. And, in today’s society is often affected by environmental, nutritional and financial aspects too. Problems in the nervous system can escalate from very minor fears and anxiety; feelings like ‘that’s not me’; right through to catastrophic paranoiac, addictive self-sabotaging traumatic abuse; and may also present as personality ‘dis’orders.

A lot of society’s ‘man-made’ rules and regulations cause disharmony within our bodies. Society puts these ideas (labels) in people’s heads/minds and so they think that they are x, y or z when in actual fact they are not. This imbalance in the nervous system is the underlying cause of much, again as labelled by society, mental illness. This can be released when healed at source. Energy clearing/entity release is vital in the first instance in any healing in order to work with the actual soul as is. When a person is ready and they actually want to get well then ‘Miracles can and DO occur’! I have seen this many times.

Core beliefs that are ‘set’ in our minds during early childhood can feel so embedded that we may feel that there is little or no hope of recovery, and with that any process of change is bound to bring with it a certain amount of fear. Often it is only the fear of that fear that stops us from actively doing anything about healing from within, coupled with, ‘where do I look for help?’ A change in perception is all it takes.

Believing in the power of healing; trusting that the process is working; keeping the faith. There are many healing stories across the world. Louise L Hay healing herself of cancer before going on to own her own publishing company which now helps so many other people by sharing knowledge of how they too can learn to heal. Louise was my own inspiration to heal from a crippling ‘dis’-ability after 13 years of being ‘labelled’ 20% disabled for life. I went on to self-publish (not for profit) two of my own books, the first of which was ‘written’ using voice activated software (ISBN 0-9547113-0-0 / 978-0-9547119-1-3) then on healing, unheard of, to give back my DLA (PIP). Inspirational role models like Australian born Madeline Stuart, a pure Force of unconditional LOVE, her love of self knows no bounds – so how about this for a change of perception…has anyone ever thought that maybe what western, eastern, medical professionals label ‘missing genes’ could actually be western, eastern, medical professionals labelled ‘norm’ in actually having an excess gene? We are all unique and individual with a reason for be-ing.

The Shamanic belief of ill health is that rather than having a ‘breakdown’, what we actually have is a healing crisis, a ‘breakthrough’! Amongst other ways, using Shamanic healing during my own and loved one’s journey’s I finally found my 1 in 10 psychiatrists that I had always been searching for. I truly came to understand what I inherently know, as my sense of knowing was now at last understood by others. I refer you to Robert Alcorn MD’s book “HEALING STORIES, My Journey from Mainstream Psychiatry Toward Spiritual Healing” (ISBN 978-0-578-05457-5). Quote, “Bob Alcorn is one of those too few physicians who have the courage to be open to the new medicine, the new understanding and treatment of disorder, called energy medicine. He is a good bridge between this new understanding and the foundation built upon the classical, dynamic view. He writes with courage and finesse and truth. This is an important book for everyone to read and, most especially, physicians. I heartily endorse it and the author.” Maurie D Pressman, M.D., Emeritus Chairman of Psychiatry, Albert Einstein Medical Center, Philadelphia PA, Emeritus Clinical Professor of Psychiatry Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia PA. 

Our bodies are so very clever; they do know how to heal themselves…if we choose.

In conclusion… every healing modality known to man is every human’s birth right. Every one of us has a right to choose from the whole of the medical/complementary techniques which healing modalities we choose to combine together in bringing about our own healing. I ask all mental health bodies worldwide – rather than undo all the good work that healing practitioners do worldwide by scaremongering the public and giving western, eastern, medical professionals false safety in numbers, ‘Could you work in unison with us, hand in hand, showing that same mutual respect that we have for you?

My work is my life and I take my work very seriously, because mental health matters…
