After reading many books and articles about the brain and mind, I found that there is so much in common with the healing of the brain, and how much you can the brain do, if given the opportunity. While healing babies and children with craniosacral therapy, I realized that what I am doing, is given their brain an opportunity to heal the body and find another way of developing that works for them, hence healing themselves. The common things is also with adults, the difference with adults is that their own resistance, beliefs and upbringing, might stop them or delay the quick healing that the therapy would otherwise do. With the combination of NLP and Mindfulness the person is empowered to find another way of thinking and doing things that works for them, in order to heal, past and present trauma, or even blocks to their own being and being of themselves. The brain is an amazing healer, it can do miracles, if you allow it!
Try now with craniosacral therapy, or the combination with NLP and mindfulness meditation and living that you will be given if needed, as well as starting by changing your diet, or allergies. With the method NAET the over-reaction to food and the environment might diminish or go completely, as the brain reset to recognise what it has perceived as the enemy as part of itself. click here to read more about all the therapies.
Out of curiosity I decided to do my DNA Heritage test, to see where my ancestors are and where I came from. I was expected mainly Italian, and maybe Spanish, from my surprise I half Italian/Greek, which I did not expect at all. Even though Romans did go and invaded Greece at some point, so it make sense now. I did not realize how much of Greece there was. It could be that half Naples might be partly Greek! If all did the DNA test there might be a way of knowing it. Amazing, though, then 6 per cent is related pretty much to the ancestors Jewish community, there is a percentage of West Africa, Middle East and less than 1 per cent Nigeria, and my son mentioned that many people find that they come from Nigeria, that might be the Africa that moved more thousands of years ago. So just for people to know that you might be different from what you think you are!
This can affect also the way you eat and what you eat, if you are stuck with your health in understanding what you care allergic to or even what you can eat more, it is worth to do the ancestors test to see what you can eat that is good from where you are from!
I have been a therapist for 28 years and more. Starting to treat the physical trauma with massage and reflexology to the chemical trauma through nutrition and allergies and for the past 11 years trauma from birth or before birth to adult time with craniosacral therapy/healing.
It always amaze me when an adult can manage to let go from their body, their childhood trauma through their painful muscle or body.
If you are like me, that grew up long time ago, when children were not considered teachers, like they are now, then you still have some trauma, from family beliefs, religion and society.
This is not about blaming any of your parents or other people that raise you, as they did the best they could with the resources that they had, and some had none, or had a really tough time too.
All stems from that unconditional love that was given to your parents and your parents to you.
Emotional trauma and physical trauma are connected to each other, one might cause the other and vice-versa.
If you birth was traumatic for you and your mum, than the physical scar stay there, unless you deal with them from the start.
If you are an adult you can still deal with the trauma, through craniosacral therapy. If you have had a baby, than this is the best time to treat them and have a more positive life paved for them.
If you have toddlers and older children, there is plenty of time to still treat them. Craniosacral therapy is one of the best treatment from babies to adults, as it is gentle but very powerful.
Depending on the trauma, for babies might needs up to 3 treatments only. For adults it might take some more time, but worth your money and time to heal yourself, as you will see your life, changing positively, treatment by treatment.
This winter we are fighting way more colds and flus. There reason for that, is last winter we were all self-isolating and not mixing up at all. So all the colds and viruses that were not related to COVID 19, this winter are back!
As your immune system did not have any challenges last year, well, guess what, this year has been challenged a lot, so you get one cold after another, as your immune system is now fighting things that is meant to fight!
Children when they start nursery, as you know if you have children, will start getting ill every week, as their immune system start to build up a resistance of soldiers to fight the same colds and viruses over and over again. This is called inner immunity, when you fight something twice, usually the immune system will keep a record of that virus in its memory, so that next time it encounters it, it will know what to do.
Did you know that some inland indigenous tribe can die of the simple cold? That is because their immune system has never encountered it. Now for the elderly and vulnerable people and children, that immunity does not work well, so they need as much help as they can, they are like the indigenous people who have never encountered the cold virus. That is because their immune system does not work as well. Hence all the precaution for the always new variant of the COVID 19, till at least there is a better solution that we have now.
For any other person to strengthen your immunity, or help your immune system to fight well, the solutions is a healthy lifestyle, with extra supplement when needed and nutritious food to get the vitamins and minerals, proteins and fats, as well as carbohydrates, to support your immune system in their fight. It is like feeding your soldier and nourishing them with food and warmth.
In times of illness, also the soul and mind needs that support, before, during and after. Craniosacral therapy resets the body system into balance, by centering your body and mind back to health and allow the breath of life and the energy to run through your body after the illness.

Fear seems to be one of our innate system that can either save us from danger or in our modern lives, keep us frozen in time. When a certain event that caused a strong fear, from childhood to adults, and that fear is reinforced day by day, then anxiety and phobias starts to arise. How we deal with our fears, it depends on our inner resources. Some people or children, might develop a phobia or anxiety attack in certain situation and others will be absolutely fine. This all depends on the unconscious and the memory that we retain. Quite often the negative fear memory or the event can be distorted and exaggerated by the mind. It depends on the internal support that that child or adult has and the external support. The negative fear loop can be changed in an adult by seeing the events in a different way and in a safe space. For children is reinforcing the safety of the event or possible danger with advice, e.g., if a child is scared of the dark, reassuring that child that is ok and he is safe even in the dark will help them waking up in the middle of the night terrorized if the light is off. This is a small example. In adults’ phobias can be stemming from a single event and reinforced every time that something triggered that memory. With NLP and CST, we work together in changing that memory so that the person feels ok.
For example, one of my clients was terrorized of snake, even if he saw them on a newspaper. We worked with Craniosacral therapy and NLP to reduce that fear, so that he could travel, with cautious but not terrorized of moving or travelling, where possibly snakes would be around. Obviously, he would be careful of not stepping into one, but he could see a film and read magazines, where snakes were presents, without triggering his fight and flight stress response or even a panic attack.
Where and how fear is sensed, which then could become a phobia:
Ears – a certain sound can trigger the fear from an event, e.g., if you grew up in a war zone and then moved away, fireworks or a car backfiring would trigger that stress/fear response.
Eyes – Seeing anything that would remind you of a certain event would trigger the stress/fear response (mainly the amygdala, a gland in our brain that senses fear and then send the signal to another gland (hypothalamus) for the stress response to be activated.
Touch – The sensation of touching something that reminds you of the fear, will lead again to that stress response.
Memory/unconscious or conscious: Just thinking of a particular event or similar would lead to the stress response.
Sensing/taste/smell: All this sensation will trigger the stress response to the event or similar situation that caused exaggerated fear.
Knowing/feel of energy around us: For the most sensitive people, that sense of knowing that something is dangerous will lead to that stress response.
The right amygdala seems to be more connected and activated with fear conditioning, while the left is more connected with the non-conditioning fears. The conditioning fears are the ones that were strengthen by society or growing up and the environmental circumstances, while the non-conditioning one could be related to one event or thought. Phobias are persistent fears of situations, activities, or even avoidance of people or gender. People with this type of fear, will work very hard to avoid it at all cost. In my life I have encountered people who were terrorized of feathers. This type of fear, could lead the person to stay indoors more often as feathers are very difficult to avoid from the birds and pigeons. There are children that are terrorized of dogs, even though they have never had a traumatic event. This could easily be reinforced by the responsible adults who might have had a bad experience with dogs themselves, or other religious reasons. Another example of phobias is taken a lift, or going through a tunnel. This again can be life restricting experience if not dealt with.
Fear conditioning has been studied in numerous species, from snails to humans.
In humans, conditioned fear is often measured with verbal report and galvanic skin response (the hair raises up in fear).
In other animals, conditioned fear is often measured with freezing (a period of watchful immobility) or fear potentiated startle (the augmentation of the startle reflex by a fearful stimulus).
Changes in heart rate breathing and muscle responses, and eventually panic attack, which will lead to phobias.
A number of theorists have argued that conditioned fear coincides substantially with the mechanisms, both functional and neural, of clinical anxiety disorders.
There is a direct relationship between the activation of the amygdala and the level of anxiety the subject feels. Fear responses can include freeze, startles and increase in heart rate and sweating.
People with exaggerated fears or phobias, quite often trigger a stress response, even by anticipating the possible event or conditioned that they are scared about. A person can be into a panic by just thinking that they will go through a tunnel the next day. Another possible scenario is meeting a manager at work that has caused constant stress, hence, the person might physically be ill all the time, when they need to meet the manager one to one or in a group session.
The solution, which is easy and long lasting, that I found works for many people with fears/phobia is Neuro-linguistic programming and craniosacral therapy together.
This might take one or more session to reboot the brain to settle in a more relaxed and balanced way. It depends on the history of the person on how long it will take to get to a balance state of mind.
The phobia might go on the first session, but the way a person deals with any emotional threat might take a bit more.

For family with young children or anyone there are some good ideas to mark a positive thing. Pebbles painting and leaving them in the park to raise the frequency of children and adult alike. You can pick up the pebbles with gloves to connect to other children who made the pebbles. You can write your initial or have lots of rainbow colours or smiley faces, here are some sample from one of my little friends:
And thank you to the veteran who has challenged himself at 99 years old, how amazing that is. Many people see how much money he has raised;
I see someone who was born during the 1st WW, was in the 2nd WW and survived the worse time, the best times, the low time and the highest time of his life, and managed with his determination to survive many diseases and health problems as well keeping his mental state, and even manage to do something amazing before his 100th birthday, he thought about somebody else! Does he need anything at this time, probably nothing as he does not care anymore, he is going when he decide to go in style and he is going to be remembered for ever. He saw the worse of people during the war and he is seeing the best of people in this war against the stinky virus, well done Tom Moore! I am sure you are going to be near the best always and for ever.

In May, I was going to run the mother and baby workshop for craniosacral therapist, and this year has been rescheduled for July 12 and 19th 2020 click here to read more if you are interested in receiving a free treatment during the workshops.
The reason I chose May is that May is the month of Mother Mary and as mother of Master Jesus represent the mother of all for everyone, including healing any mother wound as an adult. In my teenager years I used to walk a mile with some of my friends to go and pray, every evening, to a little statue of mother Mary. We would sit down in this little sanctuary in the open and pray.
Now I could say that I was very spiritual, and that would be a bit of a lie. The reason we girls and boys of 13-15 of age, would walk a mile there and back, was because of talking to guys. That was the only way we could meet and talk at my time. So, 1 mile there, 1 mile back and 1 hour of praying to mother Mary. Well we had to have fun somewhere too.
Now Mother Mary has come to one of our sessions with Rose few months before Rose moved back to her country.
The statue was from the Andalucía statue of mother Mary. Mother Mary must have had a very good heart and golden heart. All babies are a bundle of pure unconditional love, and if you have one or your work with babies, you can connect to that infinite love and know what is going on with them, as they tell you their story. I can only imagine what Master Jesus as a baby must have been. Pure Light and infinite love, I am sure anybody around him would have felt that love and felt the blessing into their life for that.
The flower that I connect to mother Mary is the Rose; mainly because May is the time when Roses grow, and the colour that I would associate with mother Mary is celestial light blue.
Even if you are not religious, you can give some thoughts to mother Mary for this month as she is considered the mother of all mothers and as I mentioned above she represents mother wound healing. I am sure quite a lot of us for some reason or another need that.
I had a dream on the 20th of April that many people were starting to go down to their inner child emotions.
One dream before the following dream, I was somewhere in the sunshine with one of my old friends from Italy and I saw lots of broken walls, there were lots of free spaces. Things were ok, even though my friend was worried, things were going to be ok.
Some were sad and missing their parents, they did not want to show their emotions as they would feel vulnerable and hence in their mind weak. So, they went into their childhood behaviour and avoided even talking to their parents.
Some went into their anger; they were upset and annoyed that they were still working and had not time for themselves. They wanted things to go back to where it was before.
Some were still blaming other human beings from what happens and hence being angry at other human being that were different from them. Just a reminder for everyone that we are all one and as one we can fight anything that comes our way.
Others were hungry and hence eating more than they need to eat, like a child that express their emotions through either eating or not eating, as that is in their control.
Some were still running away and not wanted to stop.”
It felt that the human spirit was a bit down, as humans, we want to be with other humans and want to share things and laugh and play and meet each other in person. It is natural and normal to feel all the above emotions right now. As long as you remember to respect yourself and others in dealing with your own emotions, then it is ok to accept the anger, sadness, fear, pain, jealousy and envy, as long as you also let them go as they do not serve you any longer and as long as you can find the positive of them and then let them go.
With sadness, if you have a close reason for still being sad, do go through that till you can actually say goodbye to the loved ones.
During our sessions in the past 10 years with Rose, some of the Lights told us some real-life metaphors, to help Rose and myself to get through some tough times and motivate Rose in finishing her PhD.
