Q health: with KEREN WIGLEY

Q Magazine - - News -

Aleenta Barre is very happy to wel­come Keren Wigley and Ciara Clerkin at Holis­tic Health Mel­bourne to our team of pro­fes­sion­als who are com­mit­ted to your health and well­be­ing. As health­care prac­ti­tion­ers, spe­cial­is­ing in Ki­ne­si­ol­ogy, they are able to act as in­ter­preters be­tween you and your body, to help you find out what it is that your body may be try­ing to tell you, and pro­vide nat­u­ral and gen­tle ways, in a com­fort­able, re­lax­ing and con­fi­den­tial en­vi­ron­ment, to re­solve any phys­i­cal or emo­tional is­sues that need to be ad­dressed.

In the ar­ti­cle be­low, Keren ex­plains how your body can re­act to the jour­ney of life and try to com­mu­ni­cate to you in ways that are mostly mis­in­ter­preted, ex­ac­er­bat­ing the is­sues. You can read the com­plete ar­ti­cle at http://holis­tichealth­melb.com.au/life-is-anepic-jour­ney/

Life is an epic jour­ney and most peo­ple have ex­pe­ri­enced many in­cred­i­ble highs and some chal­leng­ing low points along the way.

Of­ten the road to the fu­ture is punc­tu­ated by chal­leng­ing and dif­fi­cult cir­cum­stances, deep grief or trauma. Life is not dis­cern­ing be­tween those who have and those who have not and in re­al­ity, no­body es­capes un­scathed and it be­comes part of their growth and learn­ing. How­ever dur­ing those past times, the vi­sion of the fu­ture may have been ob­scured by cir­cum­stances be­yond their con­trol, lack of di­rec­tion, los­ing sight of per­sonal goals or be­ing un­able to achieve them be­cause of oth­ers. For some, the over­whelm­ing bur­den of grief, re­gret or guilt added a weight which made it dif­fi­cult to keep go­ing for­ward. Or per­haps feel­ings of frus­tra­tion, re­sent­ment, loss of con­trol or be­ing stuck added to the load.

Hap­pi­ness is ev­ery­one's birthright and at some point many peo­ple made a de­ci­sion to re­claim their per­sonal power. Although it took a lot of courage, they took steps to achieve it, set­ting emo­tions aside, or nav­i­gat­ing their way out of the sit­u­a­tion that was keep­ing them down. With courage and de­ter­mi­na­tion, they launched into their de­sired fu­ture with re­newed vigour, de­ter­mi­na­tion and pur­pose.

Fast-for­ward through the strug­gles, like the but­ter­fly com­ing out of the co­coon, to their fu­ture. As they looked back over their life they saw that all of the step­ping stones de­vel­oped them in ways that they would never have imag­ined and con­trib­uted to the suc­cess and hap­pi­ness that they now en­joyed, go­ing from strength to strength. Life is good and there is no need to work through old for­got­ten emo­tions and is­sues. They seem so far away.

But are they? Over time, es­pe­cially if com­bined with the ac­cu­mu­la­tive ef­fect of on­go­ing stress, the body makes a de­ci­sion (un­known to them) that it is time to empty the trash and the only way to com­mu­ni­cate this to them is in a phys­i­cal way. In a seem­ingly per­fect world they be­gin to ex­pe­ri­ence in­ex­pli­ca­ble symp­toms, usu­ally in the weak­est link in the ge­netic chain. These are sig­nals from the body. At first oc­ca­sional, and then con­stant phys­i­cal or emo­tional symp­toms. Per­haps anx­i­ety at­tacks, de­pres­sion, un­ex­plained fears, chal­leng­ing dreams, di­ges­tive dis­or­ders, sen­si­tiv­i­ties, headaches, mus­cu­lar aches and pains, burn-out, feel­ings of vul­ner­a­bil­ity, fragility, un­cer­tainty about the fu­ture, di­min­ish­ing self-con­fi­dence. Ev­ery time they try to walk their path, they feel as though there is an in­vis­i­ble net hold­ing them back. It is at this point that they of­ten seek med­i­cal in­ter­ven­tion, and add a phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal pre­scrip­tion to the phys­i­cal and emo­tional tox­i­c­ity in the body. In re­sponse, the symp­toms may ease how­ever the body be­gins to shout at them as it be­comes over­loaded. They can­not un­der­stand or lis­ten, of­ten blame it on the ag­ing process, and the un­der­ly­ing prob­lem gets worse un­til a real con­di­tion de­vel­ops.

Their body has de­cided it is time to stop, deal with all of the un­der­ly­ing is­sues so that they can heal emo­tion­ally and be happy again. Of­ten they have for­got­ten how it feels to be re­ally happy, that feel­ing of free­dom, laugh­ing out loud and feel­ing so good that they want ev­ery­one to feel the same way. The per­sonal goals that they set for them­selves a few years ago are still burn­ing and they want them to be­come re­al­ity. Ev­ery time they look at them and think “Can I?” the an­swer is a re­sound­ing “No!”. Their body has be­gun to shut them down and it be­comes in­creas­ingly dif­fi­cult to do all of the things they want to do. They may ex­pe­ri­ence a sense of de­nial and try to sol­dier on although it gets harder and harder.

It is usu­ally at this point that a friend will men­tion Ki­ne­si­ol­ogy to them or they will be­come aware of it in some way.

This is the only modal­ity that gives them the abil­ity to talk di­rectly to their body via the prac­ti­tioner who acts as an in­ter­preter to iden­tify the is­sues that need to be re­solved.

Work­ing as a team through a se­ries of ses­sions, they be­gin to gen­tly un­ravel the lay­ers of the past in an or­der of pri­or­ity de­ter­mined by the body, just like peel­ing the lay­ers of an onion.

Un­like other ther­a­pies that re­quire them to ex­pe­ri­ence painful emo­tions again, Keren and Ciara in­clude other modal­i­ties (NLP, Hyp­nother­apy and Reiki) to en­able them to clear the is­sues in a de­tached and ob­jec­tive man­ner.

This, to the body, is like a breath of fresh air and leaves them feel­ing in­creas­ingly lighter, clearer and fo­cused with a sense of self­em­pow­er­ment and free­dom. Their phys­i­cal health be­gins to im­prove and feel­ings of joy, well­be­ing and per­sonal em­pow­er­ment be­gin to re­turn. These changes are per­ma­nent and there is no look­ing back.

Many peo­ple who have ex­pe­ri­enced the sci­en­tif­i­cally-based magic of Ki­ne­si­ol­ogy con­tinue to use it as a go-to when­ever they be­gin to feel a shift in the phys­i­cal and emo­tional well­ness that they have be­come ac­cus­tomed to.
