Is the Healthcare System Actually Getting Better?

I’ve written about it, I’ve followed other healers and listened to what their take on it is, I’ve talked to numerous friends, relatives, coworkers… We all have the same opinion: That it’s simply NOT working, and when I say it’s not working I mean that it’s not working for the people who are hiring the people in this system to make us better.

What Is the Still Point?

So what I want you to do with all this information is practice. Evaluate what feels best for your body, create connections in your own meditation so that you can find better understandings of what your body is about. Gaining knowledge about your own body and mind is priceless and no one else can do it for you. They can point you in a direction of ideas on how to honor yourself more.
