Healing with Quantum Touch By Camille Bernards


MY FIRST EXPERIENCE with Quantum Touch occurred seven years ago, in 2010. After months of not finding relief for a shoulder injury, I decided to meet with a Quantum Touch practitioner. Although I knew nothing about energy healing, or what to expect, I was willing to try anything to avoid surgery. While lying on the massage table, as the practitioner held her hands on my shoulder, I was very relaxed, at first I felt nothing and wondered how this could possibly work. After about 45 minutes, when the session was over, I was surprised to find that my shoulder felt much better. Encouraged, I returned three more times, after which my pain disappeared completely and never came back. Amazed by these results, I decided to learn how to do Quantum Touch myself. After training and getting certified, I opened my own practice in 2012. I love what I do and am passionate about using Quantum Touch on others to help them find relief from their pain.

(i.e. no one can actually “heal” someone else). We can assist other people heal with their healing process. We all have the innate ability to help ourselves and others. Quantum-Touch helps the body’s capacity to heal The body has an extraordinary ability to heal itself and Quantum-Touch helps to maximize the body’s own capacity to heal. Quantum-Touch addresses the root cause of disease and creates the space for true healing to occur. Rather than just working on symptoms, Quantum-Touch will address the underlying cause of disease. The body knows how to bring itself back to 100 percent wholeness given the proper conditions.

of resonance and entrainment (meeting and matching the vibration of energy) to facilitate healing. The Quantum Touch Practitioner learns to raise his or her vibration to create a high level of energy. When that energy field is placed around an area of pain, stress, inflammation or disease, that part of the body will entrain to the higher frequency and allow one’s own biological intelligence to do whatever healing it deems necessary.

The Wisdom of Your Inner Healer By Carl Greer, PhD, PsyD


HOW CAN YOU boost your immunity, repair damage in your body caused by poor health habits, and improve your health? Identifying what you need to do is often much easier than actually doing it. You might have insights into your health challenges but neglect to connect the dots between your actions and your beliefs and emotions. Those thoughts and feelings may be hidden from your conscious mind. To access them, you may have to become still and use techniques such as meditation and shamanic journeying that let you get past the obstacle of your conscious mind’s denial. Your conscious mind may be uncomfortable you are not making progress toward changing old habits and may resist admitting this is the case. The wisdom of your inner healer can help.

Maybe you enjoy bonding with friends when you eat foods you could get away with consuming years ago, before you developed health challenges related to your poor diet. Bonding with them over wine and cheese like you always did might make you feel accepted, loved, and part of a tribe of energetic people who have endless opportunities and their whole lives before them. There is nothing wrong with wanting to have that experience. But your inner healer might reveal that you are growing older, and A wise inner healer resides within each of us, that your desire to deny this uncomfortable truth is at and it knows why we continue to snack on sugary the root of your wine and cheese habit you have been and salty treats even though we have vowed to break trying to break. the habit.

Ho’oponopono & Family Constellations By Ulrich Dupree


In this excerpt from Ho’ oponopono and Family Constellations by Ulrich Dupree we learn how this ancient Hawaiian ritual can be used in conjunction with the concept of family constellations as a tool for healing ourselves, our family and our world.

to be balanced, the solution has to be pono: right for you and right for me. Right for people, animals, plants, and for the Earth.

The aim of this method of healing conflict is to achieve a ‘win-win’ relationship. A ‘win-lose’ relationship – for example, is when workers pay with Putting things right again their health because of precarious working conditions Ho‘oponopono can be translated as ‘making things or when pesticides that harm the environment are used rightly right,’ ‘putting things right again’ or ‘restoring in agriculture – this is really a ‘lose-lose’ relationship divine order.’ The idea is that everything flows from – everybody involved loses out, you cannot base your the Source of all things (Hawaiian: ke akua oi’a’io), happiness on the suffering of others. whose essence, mana aloha, is pure love. Right – inside and out To the ancient Hawaiians, life was a great river Ponopono, ‘right, inside and out,’ is based on the (Hawaiian: wai wai) of material and spiritual wealth cosmic principle of resonances (Hawaiian: kuolo). to which one needs only to turn and/or open up This means that external environmental pollution mentally and spiritually. Life itself is richness and for example will resonate within you in the form of a person living in harmony with themselves and a pollution of the heart. Considerate types of people the cosmos is able to live happily, healthily and in who cause fewer problems for others also suffer fewer lifestyle diseases themselves. Everything is created prosperity. twice – first in our imaginations and then on a Re-establishing the cosmic order material level. The word pono appears twice, as two people are always required– both for a harmonious relationship Right for you, right for me in which all concerned can grow together, and for When our thoughts and intentions are loving, conflict, which can be exhausting. For a relationship compassionate and peaceful, the outcome will be


a pleasant one. Just like everything in the universe, ponopono obeys the fundamental law of cause and effect: ka ua mea. Everything we do and everything we fail to do has an effect. The circumstances of our lives are not there by coincidence, they are the result of our thoughts, the decisions we made on the strength of these thoughts and, ultimately, of our conscious and unconscious actions. It makes a difference whether you encourage or discourage a colleague with your remarks. It makes a difference whether you think well or badly of someone. It makes a difference whether you are a good or a bad example to children, whether you shop sustainably or without thinking about the consequences. We harvest today what we sowed yesterday – and the same is true of tomorrow.

This law of cause and effect contains an incredible opportunity for humanity to heal Nature and bring about world peace; to stop being a ‘spoilsport’ in the ecosystem and return to being a team player in the great family of the world, we have to sow new causes – then we can reap a harvest of peace. Having peace in our hearts will lead to peace in the world.
