Hello from Pippa - Isn't it interesting that how we use our thinking during any given day will physically affect our brains? I wonder if you've come across Loving Kindness…
How can we best help ourselves in this time of uncertainty and potential health risks?
- CHECKING: avoid things you know make you anxious; for example if you know that checking the latest news online 18 times a day raises your anxiety levels then decide how to calm that down in a way that works for you. And if you are good at ‘body-checking’ – that is, you are constantly checking your body to find out whether you have any symptoms of ill-health – then teach yourself to look for the parts of your body and the body systems that are working well

Since doing the lightning process, I have not had a single migraine. But I hadn’t expected it to also affect other areas of my life. I’m eating better (I’ve struggled with my weight for many decades), sleeping better, and exercising more – and it doesn’t feel like a struggle, it has become something I just do. I have more energy, more zest for life, and find myself noticing and appreciating all the good things that happen.
I’ve had a couple of real challenges since doing the LP, and at one point felt myself slipping back into old behaviour, but a telephone session with my Practitioner was all I needed to get me back into my groove. The LP really works – I can’t stop recommending it to everyone!”(more…)
