Recap of “Stress, Hormones, and Sprituality”

Last Friday, Earth Light hosted a wonderful event, “Stress, Hormones, and Spirituality” where Anne Fischer Silva shared her knowledge about how our body responds to stress and hormones.

Stress comes from various factors such as your diet, physical, emotional, and biochemical issues. She reminded us that working too much, multitasking, money, negative thoughts can have an unsatisfying outcome on our bodies mentally, while factors such as unhealthy relationships, death, divorce and feeling lonely can hurt us emotionally. Chronic pain, auto accidents, lack of/over exercising, and surgery are associated with physical stressors. Biochemical stressors can be environmental toxins, toxic livers, infections, anemia, mold, allergies, inflammations, or EMFs.

Hormones are what gets us excited. They help us stay balanced while regulating our metabolism, biological clock, and glandular secretion. Hormones are in charge of our growth, development and reproduction. Cortisol, one of the hormones discussed, allows you to deal with stress. You simply cannot live without it! It improves your digestion, boosts your energy, eases joint movement, and enhances the immune system. DHEA was the second hormone featured in the lecture. It is the “feel good” hormone as it builds things up and improves muscle movement.

Towards the end of the lecture, Anne gave some insightful tips of what we can do to reduce our stress. When it comes to our diet, eating real food that is local and in season is suggested. Discovering your metabolic type is also a helpful way to stay on track. Most importantly, we should be MOVING! Anne said, “eat mindfully less and move mindfully more”.

Closing the night, Melissa Dubin conducted a meditation in which the women of the group discovered the power of healing a mind through our spirit. We can send positive energy to our bodies to promote healing with our every day stressors. In closing, it is important to take quiet moments for yourself each day to reduce stress.

Upcoming Events: Carolyn Muldoon on Sunday, July 17th @ 5pm*

Carolyn Muldoon, medical intuitive and master clairvoyant, will present a talk for Earth Light Institute’s Spiritual Health Series on Sunday July 17th @ 5pm.
She will discuss the Illumination Counseling Process.

The Illumination Counseling Process is one that helps each individual come to a deeper understanding their true essence, creating inner balance and harmony.  The process is guided entirely by one’s soul, as each soul knows best what areas to work on at a given time.

Through the guided illumination counseling, an individual is supported as they are drawn toward blockages to be activated for release.  Once a blockage is identified and accessed assignments or homework are given to bring about a state of emotional activation. This is a holistic process that works with the entire human energy system, with the intention to clear physical as well as emotional imbalances.  Once the energy of a blockage is fully activated in the system it is transformed through the use of color, sound or symbols.  This allows for complete transformation of emotional and mental patterns, allowing the energy of a pattern to re-pattern itself into harmony with one’s true essence.

What Is Behind You?

The following quote was remembered after working with a client’s ancestors and past life that seemed to reside behind them. What came to awareness is the realization that what is behind us is our past, and contains the love of thousands!

From “Walking” by Linda Hogan

“Whichever road I follow, I walk in the land of many gods, and they love and eat one another. Walking, I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly all of my ancestors are behind me. Be still, they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands.”

All that is left to say is Thank-you.

Public Speaking Without Panic Attacks

Here is testimonial from a client that worked with Dr. Melissa Dubin for 5 sessions on eliminating panic attacks while public speaking.

“For the very first time in my entire life I successfully gave a presentation. I didn’t get a panic attack and while there was some fear/tension, it stayed at a very low level and I was able to manage it and speak well. I am so happy and still cannot believe that I’ve had a positive experience with public speaking. Thank you so much for your help and support.”

This work was brief, transformational and involved meditation, visualization, identifying and correcting negative belief patterns, emotional healing, and chi gong (an ancient form of Chinese Healing), to help heal long term anxiety and panic in relation to public speaking.
