Answering Biofeedback Questions

I have received an overwhelming amount of interest in biofeedback!

I have not yet had the chance to add a biofeedback page to my websites, so for now am posting answers to some of the questions I am getting, here.

The fee for sessions, whether biofeedback, Zensight, or a combination of the two is $100 Cdn for a one hour session. When three hours are purchased at once, the fee is $285.

If you wish to combine Zensight with biofeedback, I recommend a 90 min session for the first session. If you are someone who has already been working with me and we already know each other and you simply wish to add biofeedback into existing sessions, this is likely not necessary.

And yes! The biofeedback system also works to correct the imbalances and concerns it identifies.

Within minutes of having my system set up, I treated my dog Maggie for her aggressive barking when people come to - or near! - the house.

About 20 mins later, the test of all tests occurred...the garbage truck arrived!

My husband and I actually peaked around the corner, watching the dog as the garbage truck arrived. Complete with deafening noise and not one but three people coming near and onto our property, this is one of Maggie's most hated events.

Maggie was lying on the couch. She lifted her head and looked out the window....normally at this point she would have catapulted herself off the couch and launched herself against the bay window, barking incessantly.

Instead, she looked up with mild interest...then put her head back down, apparently completely unconcerned!

During biofeedback sessions, I have the system send balancing frequencies to the client during the session. I also, at the end of the day when I am done using the computer for the day, set the system to again send frequencies to all of the people I treated on it that day. It works while I am asleep!

I then usually will repeat sending clients the frequencies again, on a daily basis for a few days following their session.

If you have more questions please contact me.

Inergetix-Core Biofeedback

I am now up and running with my new Inergetix-Core biofeedback system.

So far my experiences with the system have been amazing. I am constantly surprised by the level of detail that the system identifies concerns.

I recently treated an infant in Australia who had just come down with pertussis. During her treatment the machine kept identifying "musculoskeletal system" and giving the message "my back is hurting".

Given that I was treating a 7 month old for pertussis, these messages were a little confusing for me.

When I emailed the little girl's Dad however, he confirmed that the baby had fallen off their bed the day before, and did indeed appear to have hurt her back.

It also kept indicating "my ear hurts" and suggesting she had an ear infection. Again, her father confirmed this saying that they strongly suspected an ear infection but had not had this checked yet.

Later, I was treating my son after he started throwing up, with what appears to have been a stomach virus. When I immediately ran a scan on him, the messages "I can taste acid in my mouth", "my stomach hurts", and "my belly is swollen" came up.

It even informed me that my son has a loose tooth, which he showed me when I asked about it!

While he remained mildly sick for a day, throwing up once more, he did not get nearly as sick as he normally does with a stomach virus and remained happy and animated during the illness.

For my daughter, a treatment on her indicated "I have a rash on my elbow" and when I checked, sure enough she did! It also stated "I frequently have rashes on my abdomen" which she also confirmed.

Then during a Zensight phone session - during while I simultaneously ran the biofeedback system for a client regarding her relationship concerns - the system repeatedly identified financial concerns in connection with the relationship, specifically identifying in various ways that she needed to decide and put limits upon how much money she was willing to redirect to her partner, given that he was not working.

She had not mentioned to me that he was not working, or that there were financial issues of any kind in the relationship, but when I asked her about this, she confirmed that yes this was the case and it was of concern to her.

What is truly wonderful about working this way is that it can help me to zero in on treating - with Zensight, with biofeedback, or with both simultaneously - the issues for the client that are most pressing, whether the client has been consciously aware of them or not, or whether or not they have thought to mention them to me!

I am looking forward to many more adventures with my new system!

If you are interested in experiencing a biofeedback session yourself - or a session that combines Zensight with biofeedback, or if you are interested in purchasing a system yourself - please email me

Please note that biofeedback session can be done distantly - an office visit is not required. All that I need to do a treatment for you is your name, date of birth, location of birth and/or a digital photo.

Coming soon...biofeedback!

I will soon be adding new tool to my holistic psychotherapy practice - biofeedback!

I first became interested in this after a friend told me about how much she had been helped by biofeedback sessions she had experienced.

I had a session myself, and was amazed. The machine was able to identify some pretty specific events in my life - including that I had been born as a result of placental abruption - as well as various physical, emotional, and energetic issues that were out of balance.

The practitioner than had the machine run frequencies to me in order to balance those things that I needed assistance with.

I really felt great afterwards and was so impressed by the experience that I started researching various biofeedback systems.

The system that I purchased is one that I can use creatively in any way that I like...including by programming it with Zensight healing statements so that the system can identify which statements the client will most benefit from and then send the energetic vibrations of those statements, to the client.

Please watch for coming announcements about this - I expect to receive the system (which is being shipped to me from the US) in the next week or so and will be trying it out on friends and family as well as myself, in order to gain proficiency with it and then will be offering it to clients as well.

I am really excited about it, waiting for the system to arrive is kind of like waiting for Christmas morning for me!

The Genie In Your Genes

Have you checked out Dawson Church's new book The Genie In Your Genes yet? If not, you really want to, if you have any interest at all in energy healing work and understanding how and why it works.

It is amazing! I am about halfway through it and am absolutely loving it.

I am going to be interviewing Dawson Church later this week (September 6th) for an ACEP teleconference call, and can not wait.

This morning I read where Dawson describes an experiment that was done with a self propelled robot (a “tychoscope”) that contained a random number generator. When put into a room, the robot moved around the room in an arbitrary, random pattern, and random angles and for random distances.

The test was then repeated, one time with a room with an empty cage at one end, and the next time in the same room but with a cage of chicks at one end. The chicks had been trained to related to the tychoscope as if it were their mother hen.

In the presence of the chicks this robot’s movements were no longer random – it approached the cage two and a half time more often than it would the empty cage.

What is especially interesting in looking at the pictures that show the robot’s movement is not only did the robot approach the cage of chicks 2.5 times more often than it did the empty cage, but it did not enter the opposite side of the room AT ALL, whereas in the room with the empty cage it appears that it spent equally time/had equal movements on both sides of the room.

If baby chicks can do it anyone can!

Of course we all have known someone who has tried to use their intention and does not seem able to manifest what they want/need. Also in The Genie in Your Genes it talks about studies that showed that the use of intention alone was not nearly as powerful as the use of intention with an energy of love behind it.

I’m betting those chicks felt a feeling of love towards their “mom” even if she was a robot.

I'm going to be on TV!

Recently I was contacted by the reality TV show, Save Us From Our House.

On Save Us From Our House, they renovate homes...and relationships!

I was asked to do a couples' therapy session with a family who was appearing on the show. The family lives in a nearby community and have a son who has been recently diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy.

We filmed a couple of weeks ago. It was an enjoyable experience, and things went extremely well.

The show will be appearing on The Women's Network in September or October.

Zensight Goes to College!

I am pleased to announce that Zensight is going to College!

The College of International Holistic Studies recently approached me to ask me if I would be interested in teaching a one year course with them.

The answer was, absolutely!

This is a wonderful opportunity for me, as when I teach a one or two day workshop, I am always left wishing I could teach people more.

This course will run for 10 months, and occur one weekend every month from September until June. This format allows enrollment even by those who must travel to get to the class, in Milton, Ontario.

The course will consist of teaching/lecture format together with a clinical experiential component.

The course will cover the history of energy psychology, instruction in basic counselling skills as well as the basic aspects of Energy Medicine, EFT, BSFF, TAT, and more. Students will graduate with a Diploma in Energy Psychology.

More details will be coming soon! Please see see www.cihs.ca for more information about the College of International Holistic Studies.

Visiting Tikal - Mayan Ruins in Guatemala

While on our trip to Belize, Kevin and I took a 2 day trip over to Guatemala to visit Tikal.

It was truly amazing, seeing the ancient ruins. Our guide explained that only about 20% of the ruins are now visible, after having been dug out from under the jungle that had grown over it.

If you looked for it, in places you could see in the jungle floor, areas with rows of parallel horizontal lines, indicated staircases that were still covered.

We climbed enormous structures - they were incredibly high, with very narrow, very steep steps.

I had never been aware of having a fear of heights before. However....

We had arranged to view the sunset from the top of one of the monuments. A guide brought us there. As we had been running slightly behind schedule, we climbed the monument extremely quickly.

Only once I was finally up at the top did I look down and realize I was completely terrified!

I am not sure that I have ever felt so frozen in fear before. Kevin suggested that I move to the flat surface, away from the edge, rather than on the top step, but I was completely unable to move. Now I know why they say "don't look down".

I did manage to get some photos of the sunset - and of the steps we had climbed up.

I can say that focusing upon my Zensight healing symbol - as well as Kevin's support - was essential in dissolving enough fear that I was able to come down again, without throwing up or passing out.

Amazing Synchronicities in Everyday Life

Last November I began volunteering with the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP). I help to coordinate their monthly teleconference calls with various movers and shakers in the energy psychology field. These teleconference calls are free to ACEP members and are recorded and kept as part of the ACEP members library. For more information about ACEP, please visit the ACEP website.

One of the first people I contacted to see if he would like to be the speaker on one of the ACEP calls was Dr. Daniel Benor, who is the creator of WHEE - which combines aspects of EFT together with EMDR. Daniel is going to be the speaker for February's teleclass. You can learn more about Daniel and WHEE at his website.

I am particularly interested in learning more about WHEE as I believe Zensight and WHEE likely share some similarities.

A few days ago, Daniel emailed me asking if I would be interested in writing an article for the International Journal of Healing and Caring. I noticed, to my surprise, that his autosignature indicated he was located in Guelph, ON which is about half an hour away from me. This was very surprising information as I had been under the impression he was located in the United States.

Yesterday I replied to his email and said that I would be happy to submit an article. I mentioned in passing that I was surprised to see he was located in Guelph and let him know that I was in Milton.

Daniel promptely emailed back and said that he was even more surprised, as at that very moment he was sitting in Milton, and mentioned the intersection he was located at.

It took a few seconds for me to absorb that information. When I did, I phoned him immediately.

It turns out that not only have Daniel and I - creators of quite similar energy healing modalities - unbeknownst to each other, been seeing clients in the same town, our offices are even located in the same building, right across the hall from each other.

Apparently Daniel was living in New Jersey when we first started communicating, but moved to Canada last month.

I think that we were equally floored by the synchronicity involved in this, especially as Milton is a relatively small community that has few therapists and to my knowledge there are only 3 of us, including Daniel and myself, who practice alternative modalities of any kind.

Yes, it confirms to me yet again, that the Universe does have a sense of humour!

The Power of Manifesting...a Parking Ticket!

I often work with people to help them to manifest what it is that they would like to have more of in their life. In fact, one of the downloadable Zensight audio files - Manifesting Your Dreams with Zensight - that I have on my website is on exactly this topic.

If you have watched the movie The Secret - which is going to be featured on Oprah later this month - you will be familiar with this topic.

The Universe is quite neutral and simply responds to what it is that we focus upon, and put our energies into.

If we focus on the things that go wrong, and the things we don't want to have in our lives, we tend to attract more of that.

If we focus on positive experiences and expectations, we tend to attract more of those.

This is particularly the case when what we focus upon is accompanied by a strong emotional charge, whether that emotions are of intense happiness and excitment, or feelings of intense upset, sadness or despair.

Recently I began consulting with a practitioner whose office is at a busy Toronto location. At the first appointment I noticed there was little in the way of parking - only one hour parking seemed to be available. I drove around and managed to find a street at which there was construction nearby, and all of the signs listing "one hour parking only" had been covered with black plastic.

It seemed clear that it was okay to park there, at least while the construction was ongoing. Several other cars were parked there and I parked by car and stayed there for well over an hour, with no problem.

Prior to the next appointment I kept wondering and worrying about the parking issue. I went online and tried to find alternate places to park, as the service I was receiving was quite valuable and I wished to be able to go on an ongoing basis, but did not want to risk getting parking tickets.

I spent a few hours worrying about this one evening, and managed to figure out a variety of possible parking options in case the other spot was not available at the next appointment.

Even the day of the appointment I remained concerned. When I go to the area, however, I saw that the same street still had all of its signs covered with black plastic and numerous cars were parked there, with no apparent problem.

I parked my car, and went to my appointment.

When I returned I was startled, and at first dismayed to find a parking ticket on my car!

Completely confusing to me was that none of the other cars, parked on the same street, had a parking ticket. The reason cited on the ticket was that I had parked in violation of the signed restrictions - when all of the signs were in fact covered up.

At first I was angry and upset, though by the time I was halfway home from the appointment I had started to laugh, thinking how I had somehow managed to attract to myself and myself only, a parking ticket, based upon the amount of fear and energy I had put in that direction.

I then busied myself with focusing my energies upon reaching an understanding and sympathetic person at the parking municipality office, to help me to have the ticket dropped, as the signs had been covered up. If I had the time and energy I could have returned to the spot and taken photographs of the parking signs and street, and requested a court date, but for a $30 ticket it was not worth the return trip to Toronto (I had no camera with me), or the time involved with going to court.

When I got home I called the office in charge of parking violations and explained the situation. The woman on the other end of the phone was very sympathetic and quite baffled as to how or why this would have occurred and asked me to fax her the information so that they could investigate the situation.

I have not yet heard anything back but am confident the issue will be resolved without my having to pay the penalty, or go to court. And, if this does not occur, $30 is a very small price to pay for such a valuable lesson!

So please be careful where you place your energies and what you attract to yourself! If you find yourself focused upon the negative or on the things that have gone wrong in your life, or are afraid will go wrong, please know that you can use Zensight to help to quickly and gently process the upset that you may experience in your life so that you have the mental and emotional energies to focus upon all of the good that is around you - or is about to be around you!

You can also use Zensight to simply, even in the absence of upset, focus upon picturing yourself having, doing and experiencing all that it is that you would like to have in your life, and use you healing symbol to strengthen and deepen this.

I find that when I do so, I end up walking around feeling happy and blissful, even when doing boring mundane tasks (like housework...), and life is just soooo good.
