Plains FM 96.9

Your body is speaking, are you listening to it? What you feel, if you don't reveal and deal will begin to squeal in the organs and tissues of your body. Emotions drive so many illnesses and dis-ease processes. The body is a barometer for what you are repressing. Anger, shame, sadness, guilt, fear (stress) are all affecting specific organs and tissues of the body. In this episode I get specific on certain organs and their emotional root causes.

In this talk, she challenges us to consider how we keep all time - past, present and future - in mind as we evaluate and assess for decision making.

April May Gems - Jun 18 2024 ep26 - The not so UNSUNG HERO

Fresh FM

Recorded on location in Christchurch for “4K&C’s The Homecoming Tour” on my birthday, asking the questions – Do you enjoy your birthday? Do you feel worthy of the honour, deserving of the special attention and the presents? What do you see when you look in the mirror? Have you felt like you’re just smiling your way through but inside you’re, just, sad? I know how that feels. It’s the weirdest thing because you ought to be feeling happy but you’re not and it feels so awkward to keep up the pretending. You feel like a big faker and you don’t even know why you’re feeling the opposite of how you ought to be feeling. And then you feel bad, about that! Well, there’s someone to turn to. Someone who knows you on the inside – the real you. Someone who knows why you’re feeling, the way you are. Someone who sees you like a rose in bloom, dressed in white and all your wrongs, made right. That someone is the ultimate, not-so-UNSUNG HERO.
