Published in the Jerusalem Post magazine: “What’s the difference between being ‘healed’ and being ‘cured’?”

Posted by on Nov 16, 2019

When I was 25, my father was diagnosed with end-stage colon cancer. His diagnosis pulled the carpet out from under me, and changed the course of my life. He was only 54 at the time, and by 55 he died! He was given a book by Dr. Bernie Siegel, Love, Medicine and Miracles; in my spare time I devoured this book, hoping to find a way to help my dad. It was a phenomenal read, and I couldn’t believe that a doctor was writing this way. He believes in empowering patients to be active participants in their healing journey. Siegel says, “It’s not about curing the disease, but healing the life; then the physical benefits come.” This was my burning question, “Was everything up to doctors, or does the patient play a role?” His book delivered a resounding YES,...

Make today meaningful

Posted by on Sep 23, 2019

Today is my birthday. Last night before I went to sleep I decided that I would make full use of every moment of my day. I would feel each blessing of the gift of life and another year. Reflecting back on my day, this is what I learned and what I would love to share with you. I woke up at 6:30am to meditate. This is something that brings me joy and I thought back to the years when I was a kid when waking up on your birthday was filled with exhilaration. I connected to this feeling and welcomed it into my day (even if I was turning 48 and not 8.) Sometimes we do things by rote because we do the things we do, but this time I first connected to the joy that meditation brings me...

Today I become 21- My Post Traumatic Growth (PTG) experience.

Posted by on Oct 18, 2018

Today marks 21 years since my father Harry Bloom died. I was only 26 at the time, pretty young to lose the most influential person in my life. Turning 21 is seen as a time of reaching independence and maturity. Today, it would appear, and it feels like I have arrived at this landmark. So to mark this milestone in my life, I’d like to reflect on how much has changed, and how I have come to ‘earn’ my independence and maturity. Wikipedia describes Post-traumatic growth (PTG) like this: Positive psychological change experienced as a result of adversity and other challenges in order to rise to a higher level of functioning. My father was the greatest ‘cheerleader’ in my life. From a young girl he always believed in me and built in me the ability to believe in myself...

How to heal after the loss of a miscarriage

Posted by on Oct 7, 2018

What can you do to ease your pain and loss after a miscarriage? For many couples having a baby is not a simple exercise, and there are countless obstacles and stages to pass before that baby is brought home. From my work as a Therapeutic Reflexologist, Bereavement Counselor, Logotherapy practitioner and mental imagery for healing practitioner, I have come to believe that the support women need on their journeys to conception and birth is a whole-istic (holistic) approach where the MIND and BODY are treated as one. We can’t just focus on getting the body right for conception; we have to deal with the emotions that come with the experience as well. Often the beginning stage of conception is filled with struggles and difficulties and many couples today are battling here. This challenge comes with lots of emotions, highs...
