Living abundant joy through bio-psycho-spiritual balancing

Location: Ojai, California, United States

Welcome to Hormones in Harmony where I shall share pearls of wisdom gathered over two decades of consulting with the hormonally challenged. As a holistic nurse practitioner specializing in neuro-immune-endocrinology, I have merged my western education with eastern philosophies, but the key to being a successful healer is to embody physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. At 54, married for 32 years with two grown children, I strive to keep my Hormones in Harmony with a positive attitude, a loving environment, and faithful consumption of Genesis Gold.

Body Connections

What is this body which we seem so familiar, yet know so little of its wisdom? The body is the perfect vehicle for the soul in this third dimensional reality. It is through the dense, sensual physical body that the soul learns its deepest lessons and experiences its most precious gift. Creation is via the human body. The soul’s journey back to the eternal, to the infinite is through the human body. This earth and her human inhabitants are the most precious path in the infinite garden of creation. We are the Way.

Through the body do we realize our full human angelic potential. Within the temple of the body exists all the knowledge needed to make the journey. Through the body in relationship to other human beings with physical bodies do we experience the greatest gift of all, emotion. Emotion is the path to the soul, the body is the garden in which the path takes form. Matter begets reality through the biochemistry of the thought fueled by emotion.

The human body manifests for the soul’s appraisal symbolically. Spirit’s first garden is the body. The physicality of the body provides the fertile soul upon which thought sows the seeds of imagination and nourishes it with emotion. The quality of emotion and the clarity of thought directs the rapidity and solidity of the physical manifestation within the body. Disease and injury are born of fear, health and growth are born of love. Clear vision of wellbeing provides the matrix upon which the healthy, vibrant body becomes. Imagination fraught with horrific ideas of infirmity reaps a frail, sick, disfigured body.

The body, the garden/ the soul, the gardener. Thoughts are seeds, emotion is water which brings these seeds to life in the body. When we realize our full potential as the manifestors of our own physical reality, then we begin tending our body garden with compassion. We direct our thoughts to clear visions of vitality and carefully water these thought seeds with the waters of life giving emotion that of love.

Soon we begin to realize that we are manifesting our beliefs in the world around us. In the people who mirror our thoughts, fed by our emotions. We note that what we intend becomes. We become careful to think loving thoughts and to tend our vivid imaginations with care. We are like children in our magical thinking allowing our imagination to manifest to reality and playing in the garden of our making. We realize that we are co-creators in this life and become conscious of our power. We shed our egos as we release our fears and manifest in love.

First we come to love our bodies. We come to understand our bodies, deeply familiarizing ourselves with the miraculous nature of our physiology, the beauty of our anatomy. We begin to see the magic in creation and claim our right to brew the most delicious nectar of creation within our body cauldrons. With the up-regulation of the full genetic encodement, we begin to experience health and vitality. The brew is wrought from ingestion of all that is needed for biochemical symphony. Once the hormones are singing harmoniously, the DNA dances vitality.

We can heal anything if we imagine ourselves as healed vital beings and are in deep gratitude for our lives. We must choose life, vitality, health, happiness. We must choose love. Love is always one of the potentials, in fact love is at the core of every potential. By choosing love, we are given the choicest cut of life, rather than having to chew through the gristle of fear to taste the center of love. When we are faced with hardship, we are challenged to find the love within the pain. Illness as a blessing rather than a curse becomes the way back to our true essence which is that of love. Choose love, choose life, just choose consciously.

Don't you just love our cosmic cycles?
Once again my perspective has shifted.

Last Grandmother's council, I shared a dream I had of a golden bear.

This great creature entered my mundane life (I was in the Home Depot shopping for jasmine). No one else noticed the huge yellowish-orange bear. I crouched down, slowed my heart and breath and waited. It lumbered over to snuffle my face before preceding to tap my third eye and my right eye over and over with its claw. Then it hunkered over me, pulling me into the protection of its form. It felt like that delicious sensation when spooning with my husband and he pulls me into his body...safe and beloved. As I relaxed into the bear's embrace, it transformed into a man...naked and hairy. I rose to face him. He was all men. The first MAN and he knew me. Then he disappeared. A girl friend of mine approached and said, "That is the aspect of the Divine Masculine that has been forgotten."

This summer for me has been infused with bear energy as I have spent much time going inward in introspection. Interestingly enough the men have come forward. Bear-like men...strong yet with a sweet core. And I am not rushing forward, yet enjoying the slow dance...what a relief from my former frenetic pace. I know not where I am going...yet I trust all will be well. And the great womb is lush with potential, sweet with honey like a golden bear.

I leave this week to bask in the hot sun on a white sand beach with my precious husband...(a belated anniversary trip!) So from the gulf of Mexico, I shall set my intentions this new moon.

May we each enjoy a flexible spine and will, open hearts with loving connections, and abundant energy to enjoy cool days and passionate nights ;)

With Love, Deborah

Who do we know has a carefree life?

No one! Everyone has issues, some greater, some lesser. How we deal with them is learned form our parents, our extended families, our neighbors, our communities, our heritage, our religions and then our own trials and errors or successes teach us how to be in the world.

Yet there is more…a perspective that we come in with, that we are born with.
We either choose to view our life circumstances through the lenses of love or fear. These can be learned. Fear is the most prominently taught in the school of life.

If we choose Fear—
The glass is half empty. We do not trust. We rarely give of our true selves to others. We attract more fear through our innate vulnerability and anger. We feel less than and act this out by being a victim or a victimizer.

If we choose Love—
The glass is half full. We trust that all will be well. We attract more love, peace, joy and beauty for we become the embodiment of love.

It’s not that by choosing Love, we feel more than. It’s not that we never experience fear, never have bad stuff happen to us. It’s just that by choosing love, we receive the gifts of all life events. We recognize our fear and fear in others as the absence of love. We shine the light of love into the darkness of fear and find our way through the veil. We learn rapid soul lessons, striving to progress, yet grateful for every opportunity—the good, the bad, and the ugly. Life doesn’t hold us down but lifts us up with opportunities to experience love everywhere.

In choosing Love, we know oneness, yet seek the Divine in everything. The Divine is Love. And the Divine is in everything we touch, everything we experience, everything we are. For We are Love.

May you always choose Love,
