Dis-ease as a teacher
Any diagnosis or disease is a symptom that your body is out of balance. It may indicate the presence of a harmful virus, bacteria or chemical, or a resistance to "going with the flow" in some area of your life. Every healthy cell is alkaline and is, I believe, full of love. Every sick cell is acidic and potentially lacking in love, forgiveness and kindness to the self.
If we look at disease in the body not just as an illness, but also as the greatest teacher, amazing things can happen: with a greater understanding of ourselves, we can choose to change certain areas in our lives and become healthier.
I recently saw a lady who was suffering from constant headaches. She had had 2 MRI scans and several blood tests, but according to them everything was normal - yet her headaches were becoming more constant. She was both worried and puzzled that nothing was showing up in her tests. There was clearly something out of kilter in her body, but she could not find out what.
Through iridology, I found that her eyes revealed a ring of harmony. Here was a lady that loved balance and did not cope well in stressful situations. When there was conflict in her life, she would do her utmost to keep the peace, even if it was at the expense of her own health. On many occasions, she said "yes" when her whole body wanted to say "no." She was not speaking her truth, and as a result, the energy was too high in her head area. This is turn was resulting in frequent static shocks, another symptom trying to tell her that her body was stressed out and she needed to ground herself.
Together we worked on boosting her self-esteem, speaking her truth and really being there for herself. I believe that there is always a maintaining cause for any imbalance in the body, and that in order to truly heal, both the symptoms and the cause(s) must be treated. In many instances, "dis-ease" is simple, and we do not need to over-complicate things. Sometimes we need to ask ourselves "Is this dis-ease a personal teacher that can help me on my pathway to greater understanding and better health?" Because disease is sometimes a stepping stone which helps us to heal ourselves. In the case of this lady, it was only by understanding the underlying cause of her "dis-ease" that she could cure herself of her headaches.

Google AlertWhen a company which has it's European Headquarters here in Ireland is called 'evil' and 'immoral' by M.P.s in The House of Commons you tend to sit up and take notice. The particular company that was being referred to was Google and the reason it had enraged M.P.s in London was because even though it has a big operation there and conducts a lot of business there it pays no corporate tax. It does this by having all of its financial transactions finished here in Ireland. And the company here is …
