What is Channelling?

By Rania Watts

Manifestation can occur in various ways. We can channel our mind to focus and set goals we would otherwise classify as impossible. 

I found this phenomenal article on Success.com that discusses all the steps on can take to channel our passions in life which include “be consistent, make incremental moves, build your resilience, practice self-discipline, act now, dive in and let things unfold organically, ride the way of your passion, project a worst-case scenario, create a plan, but be flexible, write it down, think realistically, measure your results, find people who share the same passion, don’t be afraid to fail, let go of expectations.” (YEC, February 26, 2020)  

That being said, I can add my two cents in which is I have to admit I really like the “project a worst-case scenario” and I will tell you why.  Years ago, I was speaking to a therapist who was a friend of mine. She had told me something that she had suggested to one of her clients (who was really struggling with the fear of the future).  This client constantly thought “what if, what if, what if…” to the point that it began to cripple the client.  She had turned to her client and said, ‘instead of focusing on what if’s, why don’t you focus on if then, what?’ 

My friend has told me she saw a spark in her client’s eyes. She realized what she was advised would be of assistance on numerous levels. 

We all want to channel positive things for our lives. However, life is not always beautiful. There are very dark aspects to life if we allow our mind to wander into those mental spaces.  

Understanding the power we have, as humans, to adjust our thought process for the purpose of adaptation is quite remarkable. 


What is PTSD

By Rania Watts

A survivor of childhood abuse who may hear a belt buckle click and fear another beating, the woman who was sexually assaulted on her morning walk through nature trails always fearing open spaces, for the veteran who came back from war searching for a sense of normalcy.  Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome aka PTSD can manifest itself in several various ways.  

f you prefer a more clinical definition as opposed to a painted picture “Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.” (Mayo Clinic) 

Many humans who experience PTSD must work through various intrusive memories that may include:

·         “Recurrent, unwanted distressing memories of the traumatic event

·         Reliving the traumatic event as if it were happening again (flashbacks)

·         Upsetting dreams or nightmares about the traumatic event

·         Severe emotional distress or physical reactions to something that reminds you of the   traumatic event” (Mayo Clinic) 

I cannot imagine living my life like that: the constant reliving of a moment in time that could cause much damage to a human’s psyche and requires proper medical attention.  

There was a video that I watched during my Victimology Graduate Certificate year, which genuinely highlighted PTSD in a fashion where the viewers could better comprehend PTSD and how it occurs. The chances are, those individuals who are survivors trying to work their way through their PTSD – can find all of the emotions extremely crippling. 

Everyone works through and goes through this differently and this should not deter your courage as PTSD is treatable.  Please reach out to a professional if you have encountered any of the intrusive memories above. 


What is Addiction?

By Rania Watts

As a child, we immigrated to Montreal from Lebanon. I have specific memories as to when my sugar addiction started.  One night before bedtime, a friend of my parent’s came over and brought a little brown paper bag with him that was filled with sweets for me.  I used to have one, brush my teeth and hide the rest of the candy under my bed. 

Since then, I have traded my brown paper bags for pretty glass bottles. It is still the same thing in a different package.  

I have since tried to cut my sugar intake. However, we all know that addiction is a very powerful thing that can manifest very quickly.  Being addicted to sugar was probably the worst thing that I could do to my body.  However, I needed to have my sugar ‘fix’, especially after I quit smoking.  Sometimes in life we trade additions for the other.  

It can be the same thing, regardless of what item is abused, whether it is synthetic or organic – addiction always manifests itself differently.  And can, indeed change lives, if not taken care of (and not for the better).  

There are apparently “substances or behaviours that can trigger addition which, as a coping strategy, include: coffee or caffeine, gambling, anger,  food, technology, sex and work.”  The correlation between these behaviours and addiction could very quickly transform a simple addiction to a slippery slope, if not properly tended to.  

There are many organizations that can assist with whatever your addiction is. Please reach out to a professional if you feel your situation is uncontrollable. 


Benefits of Frankincense essential oil and its uses

By Rania Watts

Every time I would walk into church on Sundays, as a child, there was this aroma that would fill the church.  It turns out Frankincense is not just used in churches and has many benefits, for example – it can be used for “anxiety, colds, coughs, indigestion, ulcers.”  (Wong. C, 2020) 

PLEASE DO NOT INGEST Frankincense unless under the supervision of a doctor (Ammon). Moreover, before applying any Frankincense to you skin, please do a path test first to see if there is the possibility of an allergic reaction before applying over a larger area of skin. “Additionally, essential oils shouldn’t be applied to skin undiluted” (Wong, Cathy, 2020).

As there have not been that many studies on Frankincense, there is no recommended dosage. If a drop or two is mixed with jojoba, sweet almond or avocado oil as carrier oils, it can be placed on the skin – however IN SMALL AMOUNTS.

Benefits of Tea Tree essential oil and its uses

By Rania Watts

When I was a teenager, I remember I would volunteer at our local hospital and would tend to the patients by bringing them water or taking them for a smoke (back in the day when the entire world smoked).  The lady that I was with on that specific day took one look at my skin and advised me to purchase either Tea Tree oil or a facial product that had Tea Tree distilled inside.  

I was a stubborn tea and really did not listen at all – I used Noxzema as it had helped me from time to time.  In hindsight, seeing all of the benefits of Tea Tree oil below, perhaps I should have listened.  Mind you, when do spitfire teenagers listen?

“Facts about Tea Tree Oil 

– Tea tree oil is distilled from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia plant, found in Australia.

– The oil possesses antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antifungal properties.

– A person can treat acne, athlete’s foot, contact dermatitis or head lice using tea tree oil.

– Tea tree oil should never be swallowed.” (Leanoard. J, 2018) 

Now that being said, Tea Tree oil can be used as an “antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antiviral, acne, Athlete’s foot, for contact dermatitis, dandruff/cradle cap, head lice, nail fungus, and for oral health.” (Leanoard. J, 2018). Please note all of these ailments require Tea Tree oil in various forms. 

With all of its benefits there are still a few warnings that you should be aware of before application. “Applying tea tree oil topically, or ingesting it, carries several risks. Tea tree oil is not monitored for safety or purity by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), so it should be purchased from a reputable source.”(Leanoard. J, 2018)

Dangers of too much EMF’s around us

I have a family member who is literally OBSESSED with EMF’s and their impact on humanity.  They are constantly sending articles and little stickers for my phone- to absorb the radioactive field around us.

 This article that was written on The Verge states that “People are putting their routers in jail to protect themselves from harmless Wi-Fi” and warns against the dangers of using a Faraday cage around their routers to block electromagnetic fields. If you put this Faraday Cage contraption around your router it shows that it completely blocks the signal altogether, basically impacting your internet speed to that of a slow snail’s space. 

I would highly recommend that you watch this video below which clearly outlines how 5G works and lists its pro & cons.  

It is a scientific explanation that I feel would surpass anything I could possibly write on the subject.


Herbal VS Pharma

By Rania Watts

This debate has been occurring for such a long time. Is organic vs synthetic better? Which ones hold the best outcome for a client? 

The truth of the matter is – it is something that I cannot answer, I have known individuals who are OBSESSED with all things herbal and organic – who feel that the medical field and science is a scam; and others who feel that science is the only way forward.  

To single mindedly think one is better means one is completely ignoring the knowledge and benefits on the side of this coin . Both sides have their pitfalls too.  

Personally, I see the benefit in both pharmaceutical and herbal WHEN USED PROPERLY AND UNDER A PRESCRIPTION. 

Personally I have used both herbal and pharmaceuticals to treat various ailments.  It is honestly about what you feel is better for you. Judgment should not be passed on either side of this debate as both have their beneficial uses.  

Prior to all of our modern-day pharmaceuticals, various cultures used to use herbs to cure whatever ailments were travelling through their tribes.  

There is a reason we have sacred medicines on this earth that have been used for thousands of years. This interesting article from Discover Magazine, which discusses the benefits of Black Cumin Powder, (something that has been around for more than 2,000 years) provides a little food for thought – literally.  

Just a simple example that neither is herbal is better than pharmaceuticals or vice versa.  Humans must use what works best for them.



Theta Healing Benefits 

By: Rania Watts

The founder of ThetaHealing Vianna Stibal used this exact technique on herself throughout her post healing from a leg tumor in 1995. ThetaHealing houses a unique healing course of action which incorporates various therapeutic techniques of meditation, a spiritual philosophy untethered to any specific religion, although there is an aim to be closed to the Creator. 

An interesting facet to this type of disciple is that it incorporates various aspects related to the mind, body and spirit which allows the participants to not be as restrictive with their beliefs – as they pertain to prayer and meditation. ThetaHealing postulates that humans have “5 basic brain frequencies: Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta which are utilised one time, although one frequency places itself as the dominant depending on the situation.” *

According to Embry Women’s Health there are numerous benefits to ThetaHealing which include: “reveals your creative potential, puts an end to fears and phobias, frees you from addictions and habits, makes your spiritual connection deeper, aids you in attaining personal freedom, helps you to be healthier and feel well, heals physical illnesses, treats emotional problems and trauma, assists in becoming more confident, manifests your dreams and goals, teaches you how to grow harmonious relationships, shows you how to find your soul mate, unlocks your genius potential, reveals your perfect career, and creates abundance and wealth. (Embry’s Women’s Health)

The incorporation of mind, body, and spirit provides the cultivation towards a holistic life that promotes not only connection within themselves but also to the Creator.  This seems to form much more profound connections not only with those who participate in this healing type of therapy, but also those who surround them.  The level of balance is evident – especially with regards to the connections between the various brains and the capacity to be able to balance so many components in a manner that is utterly conducive towards growth.
