What a busy month it has been since the last newsletter!
After the half-day seminar I have had an influx of patients with the usual symptoms, like the Seven Dwarfs: Itchy, Bitchy, Sleepy, Sweaty, Bloated, Forgetful and Psycho! And they have all tried, or are trying to avoid, the dreaded HRT. So many women, so many symptoms, it’s a wonder the whole world doesn’t know about natural menopause by now.
The most popular items by far have been the Hormone questionnaire and Health Tracking Device.
The Health Tracking Device is available FREE on line for anyone who sends their email address. It allows you to keep track of the items like PAP smears, mammograms and blood tests to save you having to go to the doctor’s for the information. This enables you to manage these issues and their timing yourself rather than be dependent on reminders from surgeries when you may have either changed doctor or changed address.
The Hormone Questionnaire was designed so that women who have paid to attend the Magical Menopause seminars have been able to send in their details and have their hormone levels assessed. We email those back to you with colour coding so that you can tell how far from the normal levels or from the desirable levels your own hormones are at that time. The next step is then to take the hormone levels to your doctor to get the necessary advice and /or prescription for any hormones that might be required to correct the imbalances if they have shown up. By keeping your hormones in the desired range, you will find that symptoms will ease and life becomes bearable and you are back to your old self again! Whoopee!
Because there is a significant time input to the assessment of those hormone profiles, we do not offer them unless you have attended our seminars and are a Member of our website. This is the only service of its type that we are aware of for women to get themselves assessed and the information at the seminars explains how to use the information to obtain the best possible results.
Baby Boomers are just now in their 50s and Very Impatient with HRT. So we can expect that there will be a huge demand for more natural methods from now on. This is the largest population of menopausal women the world has ever seen and we are used to getting our way!
“Courage, mes amies! There is light at ze end of ze tunnel!”
We have had our next Reiki seminar and there are now more new Reiki energy workers in the local area. There were 2 new Reiki II level workers and 3 new level Is. By the time the 2-day event comes round in September we will have even more. What do they do? Well, they use their energy gently at first to feel how it works, doing simple things like healing their pets, or children, then progress to healing people with special hands-on positions so as to deliver energy to the body’s energy points, as in acupuncture, or chakra work. The healing is not expected to cure cancer immediately nor are there any outrageous claims made for energy healing, but there are plenty of stories from those who have received the healings to show how they have benefited and the calm and peace that follows a Reiki session.
It took a really long time for western medicine to accept acupuncture and even now, when it is routine for medical practitioners to practise acupuncture for pain relief, there are many who do not accept that it has any validity. Reiki, or any energy healing, is only now at the place where acupuncture was in the 40s. If doctors have heard of it, and most have not, they know nothing about it and are truly skeptical about its effect. This is as it should be. Nothing worthwhile is ever achieved easily.
But although the benefits may be subtle, they are powerful. From actual energy transfer into areas where the body will soak it up, to delivery of energy healing at a distance, there are so many uses for it. And anyone can do it. We have a plan to give Reiki I power to a couple of 11 year-olds who have interest and some understanding of these things, as children often do. Pets will often climb on to the area where you are working as they too feel the subtle energy and crave more of it.
Book: The Emotion Code by Dr Bradley Nelson
As most of you know I have an extensive library of personal development books of one sort or another and I will be reviewing them in the course of the year here in this newsletter so that you can have a glimpse before you decide to buy.
I am just now reading The Emotion Code by Dr Bradley Nelson, an American chiropractor who describes a way to release trapped emotions that stop you moving forward, or cause you to repeat patterns in your life that are not allowing growth. He believes, as I do, that we are composed of a series of non-material outer shell-like bodies which are made of energy and the energy of our emotions shapes and is imprinted on those other ethereal body forms. Sometimes that affects us in our material body in ways that are reflected in bad health, poor decision-making, etc. His method describes a way to identify these blockages and to release them. He uses magnets as a way to alter the energy of these other fields.
There are several points to make bout this book: firstly, I don’t doubt the existence of the etheric and other body forms that some say make up the soul, nor do I doubt that they are made of energy. Similarly it is true that many of us have emotional ‘habits’ and assumptions that stop us from doing things differently. And magnets are a form of energy so why wouldn’t they work? But I am stuck at the place where I am not sure that his method of identifying the blockages in the first place is so simple. He uses kinesiology, a discipline which uses muscle strength testing to see whether certain statements are true or not and then uses that information to assess whether that blockage is keeping you back.
Kinesiology in good hands is very successful, I must say. I have had the experience with a gifted kinesiologist of having certain underlying assumptions of my own life clarified. The only problem is that I think it takes years of experience to do it properly. In The Emotion Code there is the notion that it is really easy to do but I’m not sure. I will wait til I get to the end of the book and let you know. But for now, if you are a trained kinesiologist you will no doubt find the book an excellent statement of what you already know. For the rest of us, it is at least Very Interesting and we should try to examine what our own operating theories of life are, using its methods. That way we can see if it works for us.
There are a couple of clips on YouTube that are excerpts from the Magical Menopause seminar. There were a significant number of women who were unavailable on June 19th to come to the large seminar so, GOOD NEWS, we are running a 2-day event on 3 & 4 September. Watch the website www.serenityandenchantment.com.au for more information about venue etc. There will be the whole of the Magical Menopause content, with all the exciting bells and whistles, and several other additional benefits! We will be giving an overview of the hormones and how they work, and what you can do about them! But also much, much more about your sexuality at this time, and how to cope with all the nasties really effectively.
There will also be a free webinar on each of 12th, 19th, and 26th August about managing some if the aspects of hormone imbalance and the details of that will also be on the website, so click here www.drmauramcgill.com to find out more.
What’s a webinar?
This is a sound-only short seminar for people who register, to hear the content via their computers. We send a link once you have registered on the website and the timing and other details are sent to you. Then you click on the link when the time comes and Voila! you’re joined in!
We are doing heaps of good work for the September 2-day event that will please you! Venue, and content all are going to be a stunning turn-around for your mid-life years, girls! The DVDs will be ready and the 5-Minutes Peace CDs have already started to make an impact.
I will be in Sydney at the end of July and will be reporting then on more things coming in the next year. We are hoping to be able to organise another seminar in Newcastle as there are lots of women in that area who need to know more about the natural hormones and how they work. So watch this space!
