I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

PREVENTION IS THE BEST CURE

 LADIES DON'T LET THIS BE YOU!

The festive season is upon us, Christmas parties, office parties, chocolates and sweets being passed around. There's more opportunities to smoke and drink and taking weight off is a lot harder than putting it on. Gym membership always increases in January as the excesses of the festive season takes its toll. But after a few weeks of junk food, over indulgence and excess alcohol, bad habits set in and you start to think to yourself, "What harm will another chocolate, drink or ciggie do?" You slouch on the sofa watching Christmas TV munching and puffing away. But before you know it you find yourself feeling sluggish, your skin has lost its lustre, your spotty and you're developing bulges you'd rather not have, this in turn makes you depressed, so you tend to comfort eat and before you know it you approach the summer holiday season weighing two stone more rather than just two pounds. 

There's no harm in having the odd few chocolates or an extra glass of wine as long as you know when to stop. Fill up on the abundance of seasonal fruit, tangerines and oranges are in abundance at this time of year, the added vitamin C will go a long way to preventing colds and will give your skin a boost.

Which leads me to today's news item below, this isn't new really, most of us should know this by know, but how many take heed of it. When we are young and fit, we think we are invincible, cancer is something old people get, alas not so. With the increase of obesity the incidence of cancer is rising in younger people along with of course the rate of type 2 Diabetes. It's a well known fact, smoking doesn't just lead to lung cancer but other cancers too, not to mention cardivascular diseases often leading to amputation. Increased alcohol consumption is related to throat and mouth cancers as well as Pancreatic cancers and liver disease all of these diseases are affecting young people more than ever.

I have nursed lung cancer sufferers and amputees as a direct result of smoking and I cannot begin to tell you how distressing this is for the patient and their families, young families and the small children left without a parent. It's a particularly painful and distressing end to a life and the sad thing about it, it is preventable.

New year will be upon us soon and its almost time to make new year resolutions, let 2012 be the year when you can take stock of your health before it's too late PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE







Many cancers could be prevented
Press Association – 8 hours ago
Almost half (45%) of all cancers in men and 40% in women could be prevented, according to a major study.
The Cancer Research UK report found more than 100,000 cancers each year in the UK are caused by four lifestyle factors - smoking, unhealthy diets, alcohol and people being too fat.
This rises to around 134,000 cases a year when 14 lifestyle and environmental factors are taken into account.
Smoking is by far the biggest lifestyle contributor to a person's risk of developing cancer, accounting for 23% of all cancers in men and 15.6% in women.
As well as lung cancer, it is implicated in other forms of the disease including bladder, kidney, pancreatic and cervical cancer.
The charity said the review, which is published in the British Journal of Cancer, is the most comprehensive to date.
One in 25 cancers is linked to a person's job, such as being exposed to chemicals or asbestos, while one in 33 is linked to infections, such as the human papillomavirus (HPV), which causes most cases of cervical cancer.
Overall, 34% of cancers in 2010 (106,845) were linked to smoking, diet, drinking alcohol and excess weight.
In men, 6.1% (9,600) of cancer cases were linked to a lack of fruit and vegetables, 4.9% (7,800) to occupation, 4.6% (7,300) to alcohol, 4.1% (6,500) to overweight and obesity and 3.5% (5,500) to excessive sun exposure and sunbeds.
In women, 6.9% (10,800) were linked to overweight and obesity, 3.7% (5,800) to infections such as HPV, 3.6% (5,600) to excessive sun exposure and sunbeds, 3.4% (5,300) to lack of fruit and vegetables and 3.3% (5,100) to alcohol.

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE TO FORECAST THE FUTURE AND OTHER QUESTIONS?

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
