Staying in the Flow with Eden Energy Medicine

Lynn Bretsnyder, an Eden Energy Medicine Advanced Practitioner, talks about using energy techniques in her personal life.

I had to start thumping my K27's from the minute I buckled up.  They are located just below the corners of your collarbone and thumping them helps your energies move forward and to concentrate better, which is just what I was needing.  I was leaving on a trip I am now calling the Magical Mystery Tour.  I was following a deep intuition to go to Asheville, NC (I live in Miami), specifically in May.  So what happens when a busy life of logic and planning collide with intuition?  Great resistance!

Tracking Energies with the Meridian Flow Wheel

The Making Eden Energy Medicine Our Own blog has a very interesting post today from Judith Poole. It's a subject dear to my heart. I love working with the meridian flow wheel and following patterns of energetic disturbance. Here is Judith's take on the subject.

There is so much information in this simple graphic. Sometimes I wonder what it might have been like to have lived at the time that folks observed these energetic relationships. They were aware that energy is most available to different organs and their associated meridians at different times of the day. And they noticed that there is an exquisite order to this pattern. I suspect this knowledge was so embedded in people’s experience at the time that they didn’t think very much about it. Perhaps it was similar to people knowing the time of day and the changing seasons by watching the movements of the sun. [read more]

Calming The Stress Response In Our Fast Paced World

Angela Melton of Empowering Energy Medicine is the latest blogger to share her thoughts on Making Eden Energy Medicine Our Own.

She writes on a subject familiar to many of us.

I have always been proud of my ability to multi-task while maintaining attention to detail in my fast-paced life. What I didn’t realize was that, although I felt like I was able to do it all, I was actually surviving in adrenal overload mode. I kept telling myself that when I was finished with whatever I was tied up with doing I would finally be able to take a break and “breathe”, but that time never came. It seemed that just when I was done with one all-consuming task, another was already revving up to take its place. Because of this I was always too busy to relax and enjoy life in real time. However, I was oblivious to this fact because I was moving too fast to see it, and the world around me was spinning right along with me. Our society encourages us to move faster and do more (at whatever cost), and rewards those of us who have these traits, and I had bought into the belief that this was what I was to do if I wanted to get ahead in life.

Pinkie Shoot Your Problems to the Moon (or Sun)!

Kids love playing with energy! There's no doubt about it. They are more sensitive to their energies than many adults, and can quickly feel the results of simple exercises.

Jill Carter, who is on faculty for the Eden Energy Medicine Certification Program, recently blogged on the Making Eden Energy Medicine Our Own site about how she has adapted energy techniques into her family life. If you've got kids, or are just a big kid yourself, try these out:

Pinkie Shoot Your Problems to the Moon (or Sun)!

When your heart is feeling heavy or you’re feeling overwhelmed Donna Eden teaches that you can put one hand on your heart and the other arm outstretched as if you’re dancing with a partner and then have all of your problems go down your outstretched arm and off your heart meridian. In our house we’ve revised this technique to be a “Pinkie Shoot.” We put our problems in an imaginary rocket and use our heart’s fire to launch the rocket zipping from the heart to the armpit and then down the pinkie side of our arms (along the heart meridian).

Making Eden Energy Medicine Our Own

There's a lot of talk about energy medicine these days, but many people don't really know what energy medicine is and all that it encompasses.

The "brand" of energy medicine I practice is called Eden Energy Medicine, after Donna Eden, who developed it. This summer, I'm taking part in a project called Making Eden Energy Medicine Our Own. Created by my friend and colleague, Barbara Ann O'Leary, MEEMOO brings together a core group of Eden Energy Medicine practitioners, students and teachers who will be sharing from their personal experiences of using this type of energy medicine.

It's going to be a very flavorful sharing, that will hopefully inspire and encourage people from all kinds of backgrounds to get a taste of ways Eden Energy Medicine could enhance their life and well being.

I'm going to be sharing some of the posts here, so check back often to enjoy our stories, experiences and insights.

The first post is from Lyn Milum, a Homeopath and Eden Energy Medicine Clinical Practitioner in Florida:

Making Eden Energy Medicine My Own

Why isn't it mine already? A big part of my personal journey is finding myself in my life. I was an excellent student in high school and college, figuring out what the professors wanted, getting the "A." It was a fairly simple formula. Then, when I studied nutrition, homeopathy, and how to homeschool, I was bewildered by the different experts who taught seemingly contradictory truths about all these things, who were also "right," in their way. I have moved through anguish, frustration and futility as I tried to navigate through the world of information, trying to find what works for me. But a question I didn't ask for many years was, "what is my personal way?" Instead, my inclination was to fit myself into a path that was outlined by others, and try to walk it with excellence.
