Countdown to our NOT Another TIFF Party Fundraiser

DAY #12 - Today's post is another incredibly special one because it focuses on new ways to improve the overall health and wellness of our minds/body/spirit.

I'm so thrilled to be able to connect Robin's Healing Nest to our community of artists because as creatives our "instruments" are exactly that... our minds, our bodies and our spirits. 

I think we can all admit that; with hectic schedules, work that takes us on emotional roller coasters and more often than not, dealing with that little thing called rejection, our instruments take quite a beating!

Robin Gagliardi is an Energy Healing Practitioner with a master's certification in REIKI as well as a master's certification in INTEGRATED ENERGY THERAPY®. She is also one of the most generous, genuinely lovely people I have ever met. P.S she is my sister in law (I kinda hit the jackpot with this one)

You can read more about Robin and her journey HERE.

So, what is Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy®(IET)?

REIKI is a Japanese Technique for stress reduction and relaxation which promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on of the hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us, causing us to be alive. If this "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to feel stress, and if it's high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

If you'd like to read more about Reiki and it's ideology and benefits, you can continue HERE

INTEGRATED ENERGY THERAPY (IET) is a quick and powerful method for clearing energy blockages in the 9 sets of Integration Power Points. These points are acupressure like points, which when activated by IET energy vibration, trigger the quick and easy release of even the most suppressed cellular memories and emotions. 

Releasing these memories and emotions will release suppressed feelings, limiting thoughts/beliefs, and any aspects of yourself that can hold you back from living a fulfilling life.

If you'd like to read more about IET and it's incredible benefits, you can continue HERE

Robin has generously donated your choice of either a REIKI session or an IET® session (each worth over $80) to our LambLion fundraiser.

The benefits of REIKI and IET® for artists is absolutely limitless! I hope if you are ever feeling stuck in your work, facing blocks in any aspects of your life, find yourself dealing with set backs in your health or if you find you are in a state of imbalance, that you reach out to Robin and see for yourself what this type of therapy can offer.

Countdown to our NOT Another TIFF Party Fundraiser

DAY #7 - I know that I'm not the only artist guilty of getting caught up in the dangerous "actor mind taffy" spiral. That negative headspace that creates crippling, self doubt and anxiety. It entices us to play that dreaded "compare/despair" game and creates that oh so horrible bitterness that stifles any creativity from surfacing. 

For those of you feeling frustrated or stuck in limiting patterns of behaviour, responses or relationships. Or if you are looking for a deeper, clearer understanding of who you are or why your life is the way it is, then it's time to listen up and dive into THIS post.

Laura Biddle Psychic Medium and Channel, specializing in healing and clearing karmic patterns with shamanic techniques.
