In 2009 I started writing 2 blogs. The Halcyon Soul Center about Reiki and Meditation, and The Body Principle about Fibromyalgia and Depression. Both have evolved to encompass much more, and what I did find is that many topics covered by the Halcyon Soul Center I could post in the Body Principle as well.
The Halcyon Soul Center started out about Reiki, meditation, spirituality and authenticity, but grew to become about finding your truth and paying it forward. Reiki principles, meditation, breathing, being aware, they are all modalities used in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). CBT are coping strategies used for depression and anxiety. Meditation is used to help with anxiety and anger management.
The Body Principle started out about fibromyalgia and depression, but as time past my health issues changed and it also changed for many others. The purpose of the blog was, if nothing else, to feel you’re not alone and give even 1 person more confidence to ask questions until you’re satisfied all your questions have been answered.
With much contemplation, I’m amalgamating the two blogs together under one. The Body Principle.
Alternative healing modalities are now being recognized as complimentary therapy to Western Medicine. Reiki is being offered in hospitals across the United States. In Canada you can now get insurance receipts for Reiki sessions just like you can for massage therapy. It is only fitting to not only include but learn about these modalities.
With everything that I’ve been through, healthwise or otherwise, writing The Halcyon Soul Center was my saving grace. Modern medicine is great but sometimes pills and surgery just can’t fix what is hurting deep down inside. There are parts of you that suffer from being in pain day after day and so fatigued you can’t do the things you used to. Getting rid of stress and keeping positive is hard believe me but gets easier in time. There is a weight that is lifted off your shoulders when the negativity is gone. It makes a world of difference when you look at a situation in a positive way instead of a negative way. This is why I wanted to include the Halcyon Soul Center now. There are meditations and uplifting stories that may help one of you through a bad day.
You will find The Halcyon Soul Center posts under their respective categories. Both the Body Principle and The Halcyon Soul Center have old posts that will be archived or the information updated.
I’m very excited about the new direction!
Have a Great Day!!
