Solve your body’s mystery symptoms

I’m hosting The Shift Network’s second annual Intuitive Medicine Summit, a free online event from July 25-29, 2022. I love hosting these summits because I get to talk to some of the most interesting people on earth about ways that we can participate in our own healing, and not just rely on someone else to “fix” us. 

For example, this year I talked with Marie Manuchehri about accessing help from the “other side” to solve health issues, and Dr. Keesha Ewers about the link between childhood trauma, intuitive abilities, and adult illness. I also spoke with Dr. Titus Chiu about vagus nerve activation to unlock your intuition, creativity and healing.

I also hosted a panel discussion with the founders of the National Organization for Medical Intuition (NOMI) Wendie Colter, Dr. Tiffany Barsotti, Cay Randall-May, Dr. Maria Gentile and Elizabeth Thorson about their dedication to the advancement of professional Medical Intuition and their vision of a world where medical intuitive practitioners are accepted in clinical healthcare as well as in private practice. 

Tina Zion shares wisdom about tapping into your own intuitive abilities to help yourself and others, and Dayna Macy offers helpful advice about listening to your body’s signals with regard to overeating and which foods will best serve its optimum functioning. Masami Covey talks with me about burnout and compassion fatigue and how these don’t have to be viewed as negatives … they may actually be our intuition trying to tell us something!

Anyone who has been frustrated with undiagnosed symptoms or who may be struggling to work within the sometimes counterintuitive mainstream medical field will find valuable information here. 

The best thing about Shift Network summits is that they are free to watch online during the week they air. Each session replays, free, for 48 hours after its airtime. The only cost is if you choose to purchase the upgrade package to add the recordings and special bonuses to your digital library. There’s so much more I could tell you, but I think you’d be better served to see for yourself. Register here for the FREE Intuitive Medicine Summit and check out the power-packed lineup of speakers. You’ll be glad you did.

Cleanse-prep journal format

In one week from today, I’ll be starting a doctor-ordered cleanse. It’s mostly fruits and vegetables, with some quinoa for protein. I’ll use this blog to introduce the format I’ll be using for my cleanse journal.

After a crazy weekend, I’m finally able to sit down today and begin planning for next week. I’ll post the cleanse instructions as soon as I can give the proper credit to its creator. I don’t know if it’s something my doctor came up with, or if she got it from elsewhere. So, when I know that, I’ll post the instructions. Hopefully that will be later today.

Shape Shifters Daily Diary front coverMeantime, I’m using my Shape Shifters Daily Diary format, which includes these components, posted in this order:

Daily Thanksgiving

The instructions, below, are given in a slightly different order, because it’s easier to explain this way:

Challenges are the circumstances that keep you from your preferred state. Challenges are the only component to be worded as possibly negative because we immediately flip them over and reword them as …

Intentions, which are Challenges reframed to make a positive statement. Once you recognize a Challenge, you now know what you intend to overcome. Find a positive way to reword your Challenge and start the sentence with “I intend that I AM …”, stating it in the present tense. The creative Force into which we speak takes our words—and how we feel about them—very literally.

Triumphs are signs that forward movement is happening. They don’t have to be “Mission Accomplished.” They can be the smallest indication carlton-dance-gifthat something has improved. Shining light upon them helps them to grow. And it’s always fun to do a happy dance.

Makeovers are the things you do to look or feel better about yourself. They can be as simple as wearing your favorite shirt to work—the one you save for special occasions—or showering with your “expensive” soap. They can also be energy clearing actions like cleaning your closets, changing your sheets or smudging your house with sage. Changing the Feng Shui of your home is an extremely powerful Makeover. They don’t have to cost anything, but they should make you feel like you’ve cleared some stagnant energy.

To use a gardening analogy:

  • Stating your Challenges is the same as tilling the rocky soil.
  • Setting your Intentions is planting high-quality seeds.
  • Recognizing your Triumphs is spotting and caring for the tiny sprouts as they poke through the earth.
  • Makeovers are the fertilizer that makes your soil rich.

Daily Thanksgivings are daily ways of checking in and appreciating what’s already good in your life. Think of it as a mini “Rampage of Appreciation,” for you Abe fans.cleanse pullquote

I think that’s enough information for one blog. I’ll post later with my journal entry for the day.

A cleanse before the holidays? Are you mad???

greensmoothieI need to do a cleanse. My eating habits have gone downhill–for good reasons, by the way–but I’m apathetic about taking a week off to clean up my unhealthy diet. Well, now I’m under “Doctor’s Orders.” I think she knew that’s the only way I’d get around to it, especially right before Thanksgiving and the rest of the feasting holidays. It may seem counter-intuitive, but this is the best time to do it!

Thanksgiving-feast1The holidays are looming: Thanksgiving, several birthdays, Christmas, New Years Eve, and my wedding anniversary. This makes me want to wait until mid-January.

However, my doc was fairly insistent that I do it now. I told her that I feel blah, I’ve gained back some of the weight I lost (and bragged about), and I am depressed. She said that to wait until after the holidays probably means even more weight gain. She reminded me that doing it now means that I’ll be making more intelligent choices at those events.

It was painful to watch the pounds pile back on, but life became so hard that I was unable to take care of myself. In addition to all sorts of personal, family crises, I was going through an intense perimenopause phase. I was screamsuffering from hourly, soul-melting hot flashes, during the Arizona summer, with its triple-digit temps. I was in Hell.

I couldn’t exercise because of the extreme discomfort and I didn’t discover until too late that I would mindlessly gorge myself as soon as a hot flash hit. It was like I had to fuel a ferocious incinerator–the only way to survive the intense burning was to distract myself with food.

So, I developed some bad habits and lost some good ones. I had worked my way up to walking a few miles a day, and ate a pretty clean diet. I was in the best shape I’ve  Adiposeseen in years. I was zooming along, feeling great, but now I’m full of Adipose and need a Doctor.

Hence my doctor’s order to do a cleanse. I’ll be posting about it every day, beginning with the preparation process. That’s half the battle, you know? Planning, shopping, wrapping your head around committing–it’s a lot of effort.

Week One will be about the preparation. Week Two will be cleanse week, and Week Three will be about easing off into a healthier way of eating. The true challenge will be that Week Three takes place during Thanksgiving week. I’m going to be challenged to keep it clean, in spite of a holiday that is known primarily for gluttony.

Are you who you thought you’d be?


After last week’s discussion about asking for help, tune in to find out where that conversation led. We’ll be talking about pushing ourselves forward, in creating our own reality. Did we end up where we thought we’d be? If not, now what? And, how did Amanda Palmer save Lisa’s life? 😉

SHAPE SHIFTING = The conscious, deliberate release of old thought patterns, to create healthy changes in your life. (The bonus is that this usually results in weight balancing–loss or gain–depending on your body’s needs.)
