Having Too Many Balls in The Air!
I love my OSHO Zen Tarot cards, as they invite us to look at health issues in our life through different eyes. The stress card has the following message:
“How many people do you know who, just when they were completely overloaded, with too many projects, too many balls in the air, have suddenly come down with the flu, or taken a fall and ended up on crutches? That’s just the sort of bad timing the little monkey with the pin in his hand is about to impose on the one-man-band pictured here. The quality of stress represented by this card visits all of us at times, but perfectionists are particularly vulnerable to it. We create it ourselves, with the idea that without us nothing will happen–especially in the way we want it to! Well, what makes you think you’re so special? Do you think the sun won’t rise in the morning unless you personally set the alarm? Go for a walk, buy some flowers, and fix yourself a spaghetti dinner–anything unimportant will do. Just put yourself out of that monkey’s reach!”
The fact is that we sow what we reap. If you are thinking negative or self-limiting thoughts, that is what life will give you back. When we get to understand that, “Your thoughts create your future”, you are ready to change. A coaching session will concentrate on getting your inner world right and then your outer world will become right too. We are all too familiar with the little nagging voice inside our head that criticises us, telling us we are no good or could have done better etc.
The 10th September was World Suicide Prevention Day. Suicide is the single biggest killer of men under 45. The World Health Organization estimates that over 800,000 people die by suicide each year – that’s one person every 40 seconds.
Up to 25 times as many again attempt suicide.
The statistics for cancer in the UK are not a pleasant read. So far, there is not one official explanation for the cause of this devastating illness which sadly causes an early death to many people every year.
I strongly believe we have to look at the emotional issues each cancer patient carries and help them clear feelings of long-standing resentment and deep hurt. Working as a holistic therapist for the last 25 years, I firmly believe that our body knows the trouble and that all disease begins with our negative thought patterns.
We do not need to study philosophy but comprehend basic quantum physics to understand how important and powerful our own thoughts really are. Albert Einstein made the connection between mind and energy very clear in the famous quote in the box below..
Lis Horwich investigates whether the most effective way of treating depression is through treatment of the human or the illness.
Lis Horwich was brought up in Denmark using different holistic treatments for health improvement, so training in this was a natural development. Lis had a special interest in Reflexology for a decade before training in the modality.
Lis has now trained as:
Since qualifying Lis has treated hundreds of clients in various holistic ways for issues such as infertility, low self-worth, anger, asthma, pain and depression to name a few.
Lis has found it very exciting tapping into her first career of librarianship by promoting knowledge and information enabling people to talk about issues close to their heart by hosting local groups on subjects, from positive living to death, offering talks and workshops.
Before moving to Highcliffe in 2004, by the south coast in Dorset, Lis had practices in Chiswick, London and Harpenden, Hertfordshire.
Having suffered three miscarriages and the death of my twin brother have been my life lessons. Lis says she has learned that one does not have total control in life. She has also learned that patience is a virtue, as Dr Wayne W. Dyer said: “If you really want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.” In essence this means that all we desire will arrive in our life when and only when we’re aligned vibrationally with the energy of our Source.
Lis’s work is her life, as the two parts for her are one. She breathes her mission daily.
