What Are Intuitive Energetic Services

Intuitive Energetics Explained

The entire concept of spirituality revolves around a core understanding that we are of two minds. First and prominently, our conscious mind revolves around our ego’s presentation of our personality and is filled with the things that we have learned from living in the world. Secondly, is our subconscious heart, which communicates slower and is tied into intuition and other forms of knowing besides just our conscious mind. Intuitive Energetic Services are those that attempt to help you heal by communicating directly with our heart led subconscious intelligence. While this may sound silly at first, every culture throughout time has created tools and healing modalities that use our intuitive force for healing. And while spirituality is any practice that attempts to create more conscious awareness of our hearts voice, Intuitive Energetics as practiced at Back To Bliss are not directly involved in any philosophy, religion or spiritual practice directly.

Morphogenic Field Technique (MFT)

Josiah has been studying a highly developed form of muscle testing that combines old wisdom and new understandings to create a very effective, quick and reliable method of getting answers directly from your intuitive field, a.k.a. the Morphogenic Field. Through our muscle testing we find which nutritional supplements and lifestyle adjustments which will enhance your morphogenic field. This statement is way less magnificent than it sounds at first blush. By enhancing your bodies innate communication, energetic strength, and overall balance, EVERYTHING works better. EVERYTHING!!! And while we make no specific health claims other than to balance your morphogenic field, the very act of balancing it creates a cascade effect that helps you at every level of being.

Why MFT?

MFT has several components to its service that many other muscle testing techniques do not utilize to get great results. First it recognizes that there are several reasons you may not give accurate results to our testing. MFT takes into account all of the main reasons for this and addresses them before we begin muscle testing. This gets better results alone! Secondly, it is tied into a system that first focuses on building cellular communication and digestive health within your body. So the first session will test for all of the most common deficiencies at the most basic levels of nutrition and of cellular communication. By focusing on these nutritional needs first we form a solid platform for working deeper into creating a strong and vital morphogenic field (M-Field.) Third, its fast and tests for a huge range of possible field health disruptors. This means it has a comprehensive range for catching all manner of possible causes for a weak or unbalanced M-Field.

Who should get tested?

The simple answer is anyone that wants to feel better and perform better. Our M-Field is a reflection of our deepest energy levels and reflects the health of our our body-intelligence. It is that body-intelligence that directs our cellular chemistry to heal us and powerfully directs our mood, our fatigue levels, and a host of other performance and quality of life concerns. Most of us take some form of supplementation on a regular basis. By getting MFT services you can rest assured that you are actually taking the supplements your body actually wants and needs today.

How To Schedule Services

Booking online or via reception is the same as any other service at Back To Bliss. After an initial visit of an hour to talk about issues and get comfortable with what MFT can do for you, each subsequent service is a quick 20 minute Tune-Up to reassess if your body is still asking for the same dose and products. We find that initially changes occur quickly. When the body is initially given its most pressing supplement needs it often asks for changes on a weekly basis. As we continue along the journey we move to ever increasing time frames until we try to do a Tune-Up every 4-6 weeks. Certain products will only be asked for during short phases of the journey while others will show as long term needs. MFT is the surest and fastest way to find out!!!!

 

 

Introducing The ‘Soul Directed Living’ Program

Soul Directed Living – is a comprehensive program of philosophies, classes, and living strategies with a core aim at helping you structure you life so that you can achieve your heart’s purpose before you lose the capacity to do so. Age, accidents, illness and depleted energy all offer substantial roadblocks to our capacity and we will all have to face some or all of them in our lives. Our biology and culture have a ‘current’ of pressures that push us along life’s path regardless of our individual needs and desires. SDL is for those who hear their heart’s internal call to stop accepting reactionary living; being pushed about by fate into adopting the lifestyle which the ‘Jonses’ and marketing have dictated. Alternatively, our program provides a structure of practices and philosophies that help us to first connect with our heart and then take consistent and long term action to manifest the purpose and passions that reside deep within us in order to make our life one we are proud of with few regrets as we sit on our deathbeds.

Questions For Dreaming

What kind of life would you lead if you let your deepest emotional needs surface to directly influence your long term goal setting and lifestyle choices. Would you be happier, more engaged? Would the anxiety, depression, apathy, sadness and/or anger still be as strong?  What if you structured your daily habits in such a way that it propelled you forward satisfy and answer the deepest questions and needs of your heart? What would change if you started acting and speaking your truth?

For many people the answers to these questions are both terrifying and exciting. This means you’re on the right track! We are stimulating the ‘yes’ of our deeper energetic pulse and also pressing up against the ‘no’ that has held us in check. The paradox is that very often these two things are side by side occupying the same space. In addition to the self discovery work that allows us to identify and focus on our hearts desires, we come into stress management and the capacity to handle and process change as major aims of our program.

By putting together long term goal setting, mid term emotional/ educational processing, and daily living habits SDL creates a structure or scaffolding that we can use to build our lives to fit the needs of our soul level passions. Other core aims of this program teach us how to handle and accept disruption and stress. The paradoxical nature of stress is that we want to avoid it, but it is in some of the most stressful times that the greatest joy is discovered. By learning new ways to frame stress, vulnerability and courage are important to our being able to keep moving towards our dreams. At times massive upheavals will be thrown at us which we will need to react to, but also learning to step into disruption and stress consciously as a means to achieving greater joy is important.

Community and Action

From thought to word to deed the process of manifestation comes forth from deep within us to become physical reality. When we make larger and larger choices about how we want to live, surrounding ourselves with others of like minds is powerful. SDL provides the structure to implement action on many levels and creates a platform of connection for us all to support and nourish each other via classes, social media, and more.

When we put it all together we have a program that provides a comprehensive view of how to navigate our life and live it with passionate connection and deeply felt conviction. Are you ready?

Relaxation Hypnotherapy Session With Monica

I have been going to school for a year and half to complete my certification to be a Clinical Hypnotherapist.  I strongly believe that we are given things in our life that challenge us, sometimes so much that we think we may break.  The last couple weeks for me I have found myself struggling with my mental health.    I know so many of you out there are also struggling because of loss of job, fear of what may become, fear of sickness, loneliness and so many other things.  Part of my struggle has been that I have an entrepreneurial brain which means I couldn’t fathom that I right now I cannot control the fact that we had to close down our Business, and that I couldn’t come up with any solution (because there isn’t one) on how to make money or how to create something new.  So I took a week or so to sit in my sadness and tried to remind myself that this won’t be forever and that I am not the only one struggling and that it is ok to be vulnerable and show other people that they are not alone with their struggles.  As I feel the fog lifting from my mind, I thought something I could do to help any of you that need just a little extra support right now is to record some of my Hypnotherapy sessions and put them on our website so you can relax and hopefully calm some of the anxiety.  I want to be completely honest that I am doing this for you, but I am also doing this for me.  This is a craft that makes me feel so good about this new journey of mine and it is helping me keep busy and my entrepreneur mind at bay, so I thank each of you for coming on this journey with me.

What Is Hypnotherapy In My Words

Hypnotherapy is a relaxation of the mind.  It is a way of having your conscious mind the part of your mind that is always talking, you know the one that will not be quiet when you are trying to fall asleep?, that part of your mind subsides while your subconscious mind stores and retrieves data, it listens to what your conscious mind is telling it to do from our habits to our daily patterns.  For us to change our habits, daily patterns, emotions and feelings we need to help our subconscious mind to store new habits and let go of old ones.  Hypnotherapy is used to help a person rewrite the story they are telling themselves by using positive affirmations and thought patterns.  Hypnotherapy is NOT an entertainment act or anything like what you may have seen on a stage.  Your conscious mind is not absent when you use Hypnotherapy it is just resting, so anything that your conscious mind would hear that it doesn’t like it will not remember or take that suggestion.  So, no fear of clucking like a chicken.  Therefore, one on one appointments are so impactful because we get to sit down, talk about the issue and come up with a plan of action using your words so your conscious and subconscious mind want to hold the new story.

My Plan Of Action

This is my hope for the next couple weeks, my hope is that I will do different recordings that allow you to relax and come out of any negative thought patterns you may be having at this time.  My hope is that some of you can find peace in what I am offering.  I hope to do a new blog post once a week, but I may get to more.  My hope is that if you have a specific issue you would like me to post about that you think others are dealing with also you will comment on this post and I will make a recording.  My hope is that if you are really struggling and you don’t think this is enough support you will reach out to me and we can do a Skype session over the computer so you can get the support you need.

In This Session

This recording on this post is a deep relaxation recording, do not listen to this recording while driving or under any influence or operating any heavy equipment.  If any of you have been to my Yoga classes, it’s like a very deep relaxation that we do at the end of the classes.  If you think your families will join you grab them, and all lay down and listen.  It’s about 18 min long in run time.  Please share this post with anyone you think could benefit from these recordings.

With Love and Gratitude,

Monica Groth

Relaxation Hypnotherapy Session Enjoy! 

January’s Featured Product of the Month

We are happy to announce that each month we will be featuring one of our staffs favorite product at 10% off. This month, we are featuring Carrie’s favorite, Hyland’s Muscle Therapy Gel – with Arnica. She is a Master Massage Therapist here at Back To Bliss and she knew right away what product she would choose for the staff pick favorites. She explains that this is her favorite because, “I like the way it works in the skin, it isn’t oily or sticky when rubbed in.  It brings instant pain relief and it has helped a lot of my clients.” This is what our other staff members are saying about Arnica Muscle Therapy Gel.  “It is such a wonderful product, and the best part is that it doesn’t have a scent and it’s better for your body than most products out there.”

Muscle Therapy Gel – with Arnica

Muscle Therapy Gel with Arnica is the one of the first natural remedies for inflammation, reduction in swelling, bruising and trauma to a specified area. One of the main properties that are used in this product is Arnica. What is Arnica, you ask? Keep on reading to learn more.

Arnica is actually Arnica Montana and it is derived from a daisy plant. It has many known alias’s such as: Fall Herb, Mountain Daisy, Leopard’s Bane, Well­bestow, Wolf’s Bane, and Wound Herb. It is said to originate from Europe in the high-elevation of areas that surround, and including mountains. Arnica really loves it sun and really thrives in it with the amazing terrain and cultivated soil.  Arnica dates back into the 1500s and was used for the same as it is today, pain and muscle relief. You can use it in two different ways: topically – such as creams, gels (Muscle Therapy Gel), ointments; and orally – which can only be used in the homeopathic form – pills, tablets, and liquids. 

All of our Staff recommends this product and our families use it, as well, to treat any bump or bruise. Can be used by children, pets, athletes, adults, anyone with pain.

What Is Hypnotherapy?

Have you ever tried to change a habit or behavior just to have it resurface? This happens because our conscious willpower, typically, can’t compete with the power of our subconscious mind, which is known to be where many of our behaviors, emotions, attitudes, and motivations are rooted. Every trauma, emotion, and feeling we experience from birth until this current moment is stored in our subconscious mind.

Hypnotherapy allows us to access our subconscious mind and can be a very effective tool to help one resolve or release inner conflicts that may be getting in the way of their success, health, and happiness. However, it is not magic. Serious participation and the want and willingness to change must be present from the one who is seeking to resolve an issue or unwanted habit. Four keys to maximizing one’s own success, as a hypnotherapy client, are:

  1. Firmly believe that the issue or habit can be resolved or released.
  2. Being able to imagine one’s self as living successfully with the resolution or free from the current issue or habit.
  3. Participate for you, because you want to change.
  4. Expect one’s own success.

As a hypnotherapy client, one is allowing the hypnotherapist to use techniques to guide and help them to go into a deep state of relaxation, so that inner conflicts related to an issue or habit can be resolved, between the conscious and subconscious minds, by positive suggestions being given to the client by the hypnotherapist, which helps bring about the desired change.

Considering A Career In Massage Therapy?

A Local Opportunity

Back To Bliss is offering a class that was developed by a massage therapy school as a ‘first look’ into the career. When potential students would question whether or not they were ready to commit to a full year long massage therapy program, the school would steer them towards a version of the 15-hour course we are offering. Let’s face it, the commitment of time and money is often scary. Many potential students know they like to give back rubs to family and friends, but they have very little real experience or knowledge about professional massage. This course is the answer to these questions. It was designed to teach a full body oil massage in a group setting.

Students expressing any interest in Massage Therapy as a career can get an authentic experience of what it would be like to give massages as a professional. Taking this course will give enough experience to confirm or remove any doubts about massage as a career before students take the large step of committing to a full program.

Course Details

The course material covers a full body oil massage on professional tables. It is a public class for all ages. Minors under the age of 18 can attend with parental consent. We actually encourage parents to take the class with their child so they can talk about the career choice together. You can also find an online link to information regarding this massage course below:

Several people have expressed interest in this course already, but the dates we have scheduled for our first run don’t work for them. If you also interested but looking for other times that work for your schedule, please contact us with what does work for you so we can set up a second course time that does work for you.

Currently Scheduled

Choose from any of the following three six week sessions.

Session 1: 3/22 – 4/7 – Wed and Fri nights from 6:30-9 @ YRC

Session 2: 4/25 – 5/30  –  Tuesday nights from 6:30-9 @ YRC

Session 3: 7/2 – 8/6  –  Sundays from 3 – 6:30 @ Colby

 

6 classes. 2.5-3 hours each.

Fee: $125 / person or $200 / couple if signing up together.

Impatient? Bach Flower Remedies can help

Welcome To A New Modality

Congratulations on taking an interest in emotional, mental, and spiritual wellness. Bach Flower Remedies are an amazing therapy type, or modality, that works on this level our being to profound effect. There is a lot to talk about and be interested in with these great remedies. They are gentle without typical drug interactions or side effects. They work well for a large demographic of ages and emotional needs, and most of all, they are greatly effective.

A Little Bach-Ground

Dr. Edward Bach (1886 – 1936) was very instrumental in educating the public in the remedies that reach the vibrational level of yourself to help in the healing process of emotions. In other words, think of a piece of music or art that really moves you from the core. Your reaction has deep emotional and subconscious tones that resonate through you. These ‘vibrations’ are the level on which Bach Flower Remedies work within your system. “They do not work because of the chemical composition of the liquid, but because of the life forces derived from the plant and contained in the water-based mixture…” Bach (p. 7).

A Deeper Look

Very often when things are new, it’s hard to truly understand them without experiencing them. So here are the details on Impatiens, which was the first flower that Dr. Bach produced in remedy form.

Who should consider Impatiens? Dr. Bach says that:

“Ones who are impatient, irritable, nervous and quick to judge on a subject matter with negative appeal.” Impatiens helps with frustration towards others who are not ‘being fast enough’ for our liking.

Josiah talks a little bit about this remedy below. Details on how these remedies are made and used can be found in our upcoming class.

Learn More

Join us for a detailed examination of all the original Remedies developed by Dr. Bach. We will discuss how the remedies are used, mixed, and made in detail. By the end of this class series, you should understand how to create your own mixes and evaluate flowers for friends, family, and yourself.

Bach Flowers: Remedies for Emotional Balance

Anxiety, depression, judgment, impatience.  These are just a few of the unbalanced emotional spaces we can fall into. Bach Flowers give us a holistic and gentle way to resolve these negative emotions at a deep soul level. And not just deep clinical emotional unbalances. Bach Flower Remedies are great for us to use just to keep tendencies of unbalance from becoming problematic at larger levels.

Bach Flowers work at a vibrational level, which is an excellent method for transmitting deep emotional and subtle information. They work without drug interactions and are completely safe for children. In fact, since they work on a very subtle level, they are great for helping children process emotions which they don’t have words to process intellectually.

Learn about the original flowers developed by Dr. Bach as well as the seven major veins of mental anguish he categorized.  Flowers such as Holly which helps people process jealousy will be discussed so you can learn how to help the emotional balance of your family. We will discuss all of the original Bach flower remedies along with how to use them. 

4 weekly classes will run Sundays from 3:30-5pm beginning on Feb 26th. Fee is $20 without book and $40 with book. Class will be casual with tea and discussion.

 

Gems Of Ayurveda: Everyone Isn’t The Same

Everyone Isn’t The Same

Ever get sick of ‘blanket advice?’ Sick of that commercial which is certain that the one point they are making is THE ANSWER to your health problems? One of the fundamental tenants of Ayurveda is a concept that allows for an individual body type. All of us have had the experience where we find sage advice to be horrible for us. Maybe that sage advice is good advice, just not for your body type.

The idea that you are not the same as everyone else makes finding healthy options a bit more complex. But the results, once you learn some basics about what your body type is, are much more reliable. The pearl of wisdom we are looking at today says, “Hey, I am unique. I respond to the world in my own way. I need unique advice about my health.” Pretty decent idea, wouldn’t you say?

What Are Body Types

Understanding body types isn’t all that hard. Basically, there are three primary types. There is a windy type, a fiery type, and a muddy type. These elemental types are metaphors that describe how we react in fundamental ways at all three levels of our being; body, emotion, and mind. The key is to understand that each of us is some combination of these three body types. Each body type has its own set of balancing and healing therapies. For instance, we have all heard advice about putting ice or heat on sore muscles. What’s up with that? They are complete opposites. Why would both completely opposite therapies be good? The concept of body types gives us some insight as to why the advice of both hot and cold packs can be the right advice. Both windy and muddy body types are more often cold and would like heat for balancing while fiery types are already inflamed and cold packs are more balancing to them in general. We just need to find out what your body type is to see how your unique nature needs to be balanced.

 

An Example of How It Works

We will use the example of music, which is not commonly thought of as medicine. Because, once you understand how the types work, you can turn everything in your life into something that balances you or unbalances you.

EXAMPLE:

You are tired and out of sorts from a long week of work. As you sit in your car to head home you go to turn on the radio:

Windy people love motion. They crave and live on the stimulation of new things and bouncy active events. However, that Pop 40 Station, filled with excitement, fast tones and your favorite jams that make you want to sing along and dance is depleting to you. Windy people often are imbalanced because they have spent all their energy. Now is not the time to get your groove on and burn the remainder of your vitality away. Silence would be the best answer, but maybe a channel without so much excitement would be best at the moment. Try some classical or something smooth and slow to help you wind down.

Fiery people are intense. They love lists, order, and can see what needs to be done. This ‘burning through’ decisiveness leads to a Friday drive home that probably has you tense and focused. Very often anger and control emotions are popping up because of all the obstacles keeping you from getting your list finished. The goal of balancing you now is to cool your fire from a raging inferno to a warming glow. Silence is too much of a change for you, so music that isn’t angry or intense is best. No feisty and rough lyrics for you today. How about turning off the rap and adding some country? Maybe some classics from the 50’s and 60’s instead of that 80’s rock. Even your Christian station may not be best today. It is filled with themes that inspire intense feelings within you. Now is not the time to light your fires, but to cool them.

Muddy people are steady. They endure and have consistency. Very likely they are not overburdened by the work week and are ready to roll. These people are typically in a rut and when unbalanced. That rut tends to lead them to complacency and sluggishness. So crank up the tunes. It’s time for the weekend! Muddy personalities can use a good shake up and shake down to get them moving and throw off their sluggishness. Activity and exuberance are what they need. So find your favorite jam and be that crazy person singing out loud and grooving to the beat. If your car isn’t bouncing at the stop lights, then you aren’t dancing hard enough!

To Learn More

Ayurveda takes a little bit of effort to learn. Mostly because our minds are not used to thinking in metaphors, but also because we need to learn how activities can be adjusted to make them less wind, fire, or mud unbalancing. That’s a good deal of detail. Basically, it’s a new way of thinking about our lives and how we do things. We can get very serious about it, and change a lot of things in our lifestyle, or we can take our time and focus on adjusting one activity at a time. As we grow in our knowledge, we make more and more small adjustments to our lifestyle that add up to keep us on track and balanced in a big way.

Back To Bliss offers an introductory Ayurveda class to get you started and often teaches classes on holistic health that utilize Ayurvedic wisdom.  Check our class schedule to see what’s coming up soon!
