Now more than ever, life can be overwhelming and chaotic if we let it get the better of us!
You feel it, right?! Chasing your tail, trying to keep up, appointments to make, people to see, stuff to do… and then there’s the anxiety and overwhelm trying to take you out! But it’s not all doom and gloom, perhaps just the opposite!
Where Do I Even Start?
Kristy Rackham, trained Nurse, Sacred Energy MasteryTM and Therapeutic Applied PercussionTM Creator and Trainer and Holistic Health Counsellor/Coach, teaches that when illness or functional changes happen, it can be a wonderful catalyst for positive change.
As Kristy explains, “When a person struggles, it’s a great clue that there is too much stress in some area of life. Your body is infinitely wise! It's giving you an opportunity to explore your inner landscape and get clear around what supports you need for a healthier and more harmonious life”.
How Did We Get Here?
Kristy believes that at the core of all unhappiness and ‘dis-ease’ is stress. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (2016), 85% of all visits to a General Practitioner are stress related, and stress can complicate the management of chronic conditions and disabilities, limiting a person’s ability to thrive.
Stress is triggered by many external things, but the root cause is always our internal response. “The critical tone and attitude of our inner voice, unconscious beliefs and the stories we tell, these all affect the inner landscape we create. This determines whether we have a healthy, happy and supported life, or a heavy and unhealthy one that breeds discomfort, disease and despair”.
How Can I Manage Stress and Anxiety?
Learning to manage stress and anxiety requires awareness, acceptance, and a commitment to whole-being transformation. It starts with establishing healthy boundaries and understanding our triggers, to find our ‘REAL SELF’ - the one who knows what feels good, and what we want more of. “But, we don’t know what we don’t know, and sometimes we need help to identify and shift the stuff that’s keeping us down”, Kristy says.
So, Kristy established My Holistic Nurse in 2013 to support adults and children to achieve their health, wellbeing and lifestyle goals. Her approach combines counselling/coaching, cutting-edge techniques and tools, and training to relieve stress, anxiety, fear and phobias.

Generalised and unrelieved pain is something I battled with for years without any support from General Practitioners. They all said there was nothing wrong with me. Nothing showed up in their multitude of tests. You can't expect to pump a person full of medication and expect everything to be okay - you have to get to the root cause, and you have to have a proper diagnosis.
It's one of the reasons I started My Holistic Nurse. I was sick of being treated like an idiot, or worse, invisible or crazy. I was also VERY sick and tired of feeling sick and tired and I knew I needed to find a way to feel better and reduce my pain and fatigue from a 8/10 every day, There was no one to help me with it. I had to do the research and figure it out alone.
Now my generalised pain and fatigue is gone and I am blessed with the opportunity to share what I know and help others on their journey back to health! It's why I'm so excited about the Fibro Fix Summit. You don't have to spend all those years trying to work out how to get well. The summit will discuss why proper diagnosis and treatment of fibromyalgia (FM), as well as other fatigue- and pain-related disorders, is a neglected and poorly understood niche in medicine. These experts will discuss FM and the many disorders improperly labeled as FM, to provide real action steps and solutions - many of them will surprise you and many of them we advocate and specialise in at My Holistic Nurse.
Your host, Dr. David M. Brady, is an internationally recognized expert in fibromyalgia and a staunch patient advocate for those who have been struggling because of a medical system that is ill-equipped to deal with the problem. Join him and 30+ experts for this iconic event that could change your health and your life!

By Kristy Rackham, RN
It’s been a spiritual cliché since the inception of the New Age movement. But perhaps back then, we didn’t truly comprehend the meaning of the phrase ‘going with the flow’.
Many a ‘spiritual ego’ used this phrase to hide from the responsibility of consciously directing their own lives, to make excuses for how life was playing out, and to blindly accept what came into its reality. Back then we believed that “thoughts create our reality”. For many, Meditation became a place to escape to, instead of a conscious and deliberate method to uncover the hidden aspects of ourselves that needed adjustment, or as a tool to evolve our soul.
Times have changed. So has the Universal energy. These infant ideas born in the latter decades of the 20th century are not bad, just now outdated.
What we now know is that BELIEFS create our reality by sending frequency out into the Universe in the form of actions, emotions, thoughts and words. If we don’t know what our beliefs are, we are unconsciously creating a universe that ‘flows’ unconscious experiences back to us.
We now know that WE have created these experiences, and that WE ARE the Universe!
We also know that we have full responsibility for the life experiences that flow back into our reality. This can be a confronting and pretty scary knowing! I have to admit I still sometimes resist the idea that I have created some of the challenges that I’m facing right now. In fact, I write this all down now to remind myself, as much as to help others decipher the lay of the modern day land!
The point is, though, that we ARE in control, not at the mercy of whatever flows to us from a ‘random Universe’, but we need to know what unconscious beliefs are impeding our flow. Side note: we are also susceptible to the collective consciousness beliefs – we pick these up like a radar. The mistake we make is believing these are OUR beliefs too. But that’s another article!
Science has also been busy uncovering new and exciting truths about energy and how it all works. Studies of human electromagnetic fields can show that the heart is actually vastly more powerful than the brain, and that the heart even has its own ‘brain’ or neurology which communicates directly with the mind. The two work symbiotically to create our reality, under the guidance of our soul/higher self/divine expression (call it whatever resonates for you).
Quantum and spiritual science talks about the heart being the gateway to healing on all levels, and it is where the spark of consciousness that we are, is initiated. Another side note: in fact, medical science knows the superior importance of the heart – when a fetus is forming from its initiate cells, it is the heart that is formed first and which sparks into activity long before the brain is developed. Surgeons also speak of a ‘phantom node’ – an electromagnetically measurable, but invisible, convergence point of energy at the heart, which in some people, fires into action when the heart’s physical nodes fail to create the signal for the heart to pump! An innate intelligence is present and its gateway appears to be our heart.
What’s it all mean? The energy of our times now demand that we cast off this idea of ‘going with the flow’ and instead BE THE FLOW. To do it, we must get into our hearts.
Plans and structure and the domain of the head is now secondary to the energy of the heart. Don’t get me wrong; make plans, create a structure for your life, take human actions to reinforce the beliefs you wish to uphold. But be prepared to adapt those plans, and FAST! We no longer have the ‘luxury’ of time to build structures and monuments of the mind.
The energy of the collective Universe asks us to be finely tuned in to our own energy, to uncover and ‘make light’ the beliefs we are running below the surface of the mind, to centre ourselves in our hearts, open the gateway to our soul’s guidance, and create our lives from there.
However, we must remember that we are not our mind. We never were. Our mind is merely one of multitudes of superior manifestations of the spark of divine consciousness that we truly are. It is a tool that we may use to formulate, to plan and to manage what flows into our reality.
So when we think of ‘going with the flow’ I’d encourage us all to look at the flow very carefully. Whatever is flowing to us is a reflection, a sample of where our heart lies, and what beliefs we are emitting from our core being. It's not our fault, and it's not good or bad - it's part of what we're here for; to experience humanity and evolve our souls.
We must heal our hearts, purge the pain and return to a state of loving for us to flow out into the universe and allow the flow to be our conscious creation, not an unconscious stream that buffers us against the shore, or which we attempt to swim against with our heads.
The mind is not our creator.
We create the mind.
From the heart!

Meditation doesn’t have to be hard if you understand a little about what it is, and what to expect!
I started meditating and teaching meditation at aged 20 when experiencing a spontaneous spiritual awakening and opening of my third eye. My spiritual teachers were ‘not of this world’, and so, they were not able to help me with the nuances of a meditating human body and mind in the 3rd dimension!
For me, opening to the enormous psycho-emotional and physical benefits of meditation was easy and immediate. However, establishing a regular practice was a little more difficult as it came with a whole host of belief systems and doctrines that no one could explain for me. I trust that these 7 secrets that no one told me when I learned to meditate will help you hone and enhance your practice, and help you cut to the chase to get the most out of your meditations.
If you always wanted to try it, but perhaps you didn’t think you’d be able to do it, or maybe it’s not easy for you to attend a group class, you may find a private guided meditation lesson is a great place to start.
In a private session you will learn how to break through any beliefs that are stopping you from getting the most out of your meditation. You’ll be able to hone in on any specific life challenges that is bothering you or weighing you down and get immediate relief, and I’ll be there to guide you the whole way, which will help you to anchor your mind, reign in a restless body and really tap into your true personal power. We also record your live guided meditation for you to keep! A personalised meditation that is exactly customised to your needs can be used to practice your meditation skill as often as you like at home. Better still, come to my consult room and experience meditation with me in person, or let's meet via skype if you’re somewhere else in the world!
Head over to the My Holistic Nurse facebook page and let me know about your experience with meditation. Are you just starting out, or a seasoned meditator? Let's connect!
Do you want to learn to meditate but can’t get to a group class?
