Explaining the Difference Between Metaphysical/Spiritual & Clinical Counseling

Hey Fellow Beings of Love,

I have just completed a video explaining the difference between Metaphysical/Spiritual and Clinical Counseling. As a therapist working towards licensure I have clinical experience with counseling clients in addition to possessing ministerial status with University of Metaphysics as I work through my doctoral program of Metaphysical Counseling. I felt it was a good time to discuss the differences between both services and what to expect with each module of counseling! Watch the video to hear the full discussion and tune in for the 1 card reading at the end of the video!

With Love,

When We Miss Our Loved Ones in Spirit

When we lose the physical aspect of our loved ones we are left feeling a sense of incompleteness. We no longer feel that natural connection and a fear washes over us that we’ve lost our loved ones forever; this is a false assumption. I am guilty of this as well but when I tap into the consciousness of my higher self I’m able to connect to my loved ones who are in Spirit and feel their love surrounding and encompassing me.

I am available for intuitive readings and spiritual counseling. If interested please visit my Services or send me a message

Road to Recovery: Finding A Cure for Chronic Sinusitis Part I

If you’ve ever had a sinus infection think about having it longer than the expected time even after taking steroids and antibiotics… that has been my life for almost a year now. First I had bronchitis back in September 2017 and that took a month to clear up, I thought I was safe. Nope. A week after my birthday symptoms came back but this time it was a sinus infection, one that never left.

I’m on antibiotics and the steroid, Prednisone. The steroid works WONDERS because it clears and expells all the lodged mucus membranes lining the inside of my sinus cavity but it’s only a temporary solution unfortunately. My Allergist informed me that I need a CT scan to look at my sinuses and more than likely I’ll need surgery to remove the remaining infecting. The only issue with this, well there’s a few, starting with the fact that I’ll need to pay for the procedure and I already don’t have good insurance and two the surgery doesn’t guarantee that the infection won’t return. So I’m looking outside of the Western world concepts of medicine and going more holistic.

I contacted a Herbalist who is a MD in my local area. She immediately responded to my outreaching email which was GREAT! Dr.Deb sent me the following information for a Herbal Decongestant:

Herbal descriptions:
Nettles: Is one of the most widely applicable plants we have. They strengthen and support the whole body. They are a specific in cases of any type of skin disorder including eczema, dry skin and acne. Nettle rejuvenates kidney and adrenal functions by acting as a natural mild diuretic to remove toxins in the kidney and adrenals. Nettle is used is any type of allergic sinusitis, its constituents are similar to those of an antihistamine. The plant is adaptogenic which means that it will not only address allergy symptoms but will also enable the body to acquire a natural antihistamine and help build up immunity in treating the allergic cause.

Fenugreek: Fenugreek is a digestive aid. Reducing the sugar level of the blood, it is used in diabetes in conjunction with insulin. It also lowers blood pressure. Fenugreek relieves congestion, reduces inflammation and fights infection. Fenugreek contains natural expectorant properties ideal for treating sinus and lung congestion, and loosens & removes excess mucus and phlegm. Fenugreek is also an excellent source of selenium, an anti-radiant which helps the body utilize oxygen. Fenugreek is a natural source of iron, silicon, sodium and thiamine. Fenugreek contains mucilage’s which are known for soothing and relaxing inflamed tissues. Fenugreek stimulates the production of mucosal fluids helping remove allergens and toxins from the respiratory tract. Acting as an expectorant, Fenugreek alleviates coughing, stimulates perspiration to reduce fevers, and is beneficial for treating allergies, bronchitis and congestion.

Mullein: A high content of mucilage and saponins renders this herb ideal for the treatment of respiratory ailments, from coughs and colds to emphysema, asthma and whooping cough. In addition to the soothing effect imparted by the mucilage, Mullein possesses good antibiotic properties. During the Civil War, the Confederates relied on Mullein for treatment of respiratory problems whenever their medical supplies ran out. Several different and unrelated Indian tribes used Mullein for similar purposes.

Cayenne: In colds and allergies, Cayenne relaxes throat, cold conditions of the stomach, dyspepsia, spasms, palpitation, particularly in the acute stages. The thermogenic properties of this herb allows for easy absorption of this remedy to act quickly.

Peppermint: Peppermint is sometimes regarded as ‘the world’s oldest medicine’, with archaeological evidence placing its use at least as far back as ten thousand years ago. The natural oils in peppermint open up breathing passages by dilating the bronchioles. Peppermint flowers are large nectar producers and honey bees as well as other nectar harvesting organisms forage them heavily, for this reason taking peppermint also enhances the body’s ability to build immunity to local pollens.

I made an appointment to meet with her tomorrow. I’m excited for this naturopathic journey and I will be sharing it with you along the way. If you’ve had experience with this form of treatment please comment away!

Namaste,

Explaining My Disconnect with Spirit Communication

I’ve been listening to the audio book, The Aftermath of Billy Fingers by Annie Kagan. It’s a story of a sister who shares her journey with her brother and his journey into the Universe in Spirit form. I experienced a synchronicity while listening to the book that just occurred, and it’s something that Billy communicated to his sister. The message he gave was that he was preparing to enter into and become part of the Universe in which he stated, “I will be moving into the Universe where I will be nothing and everything at the same time. I will never again come to Earth. I will never leave you.

If you’ve been following me via here and social media you will know of my struggles with happiness. During my state of unhappiness I became disconnected from Spirit communication, I created a blockage. As I move through my anxiety which involves letting go of control and expectations, I’m now opening and clearing myself of what no longer serves me. Last night my Grandmother came through and told me, “I’ve never left you“. This time spent in unhappiness I could feel it hear her anymore. Now I’ve been feeling her Spirit around me ever since. I am a psychic medium but I’m also a human being who struggles as well.

In the future I plan to create a mentorship for other psychic mediums who find themselves in similar situations and help them process what is happening. Awareness is key to change and development, so be on the lookout! If you’re not subscribed to my website & monthly newsletter and want to be comment below and I’ll send you a link to get signed up!

Namaste.

Stargazing and Soul Conversation

Have you ever just glazed up at the sky while you were an higher altitude of ground? If you have then you know what’s it’s like to see the entire Universe, or at least arms of the Milky Way galaxy… our galaxy.  The other night upon arriving home around 12:30am from work I felt drawn to the sky above me. It felt like a magnetic pull and I refused to fight against it. Looking up I instantly became connected to the collective consciousness of the world around me. Yes, I am conscious of my role in today’s world but this feeling felt different. I felt as though my higher self was reminding me of my sole purpose in reincarnating at this time.  I came to teach, to heal, ultimately to love others. Sometimes it’s not what you know, but it’s what you feel; there’s a tremendous amount of truth in feeling your way through this life.

 

With Love,

Conquering Anxiety

Lately life has been ROUGH. That’s all caps and bold because there’s no other way I can quite describe it. I am in my final 5 weeks down to completing my Master’s program in addition to moving an hour away from my current job and internship. Every day I am at my internship site for a few hours then I work an 8 hour shift, and drive an hour home. I get home at 12am -ish and then go to sleep for a few hours, just to get up and do it all again. Oh and just not forget the fact that I just recovered from a chronic sinus infection that 3 rounds of antibiotics could not kill. I’ve spend 3 months of coughing incessantly with no to no sleep until 2 weeks again when I finally saw an Allergist and she prescribed me a steroid and antibiotics, which cleared me up QUICK. To say that I have been struggling these last 3 weeks is an understatement. I have spend many days and nights crying to myself, my therapist, my partner, and really anyone who pretends to want to listen. Honestly, I wish I had the affordability to quit work and focus entirely on graduating but that’s just not the reality I live in.

Whenever I struggle in life I tend to block the world from seeing this side of me. It’s like I have to maintain this certain image of myself to the world. I always have to be positive and hopeful; the carrier of light for others, but again, this is not the reality in which I live in. Shit is real, no one can always be positive and uplifting all the time and there’s no fucking shame in that. I  STRUGGLE and I lost my HAPPINESS in the mist of trying to do everything I’m suppose to be doing.  I lost sight of what happiness means for me. Spirituality and nature makes me happy but honestly I’ve been too exhausted to do anything close to these two things.  Does this make me weak or less than the image you’ve created for me?

Learning to stay fully in the present is hard within chaos, but it’s doable. 5 weeks isn’t too far away and when I choose to stay in this moment I alleviate the thrills of anxiety, discouragement, and a place of swallowed darkness. I’m not always the uplifting spiritual teacher/ mentor but I’ll always be the realest spiritual teacher/mentor because at the end of each day I am a Spirit living a human existence. Forgive me for I shall not lie or pretend to be someone I’m not; I’m just Amber Choisella.
