  • Tomorrow is the day! My book Healing Prolapse: Inspired Words for Your Journey Within, launches on Amazon (Kindle and paperback)  https://amzn.to/37Gz2Et 
While literally billions of women in the Western World suffer from some form of prolapse, it is a condition shrouded in secrecy. Why? Because women feel shame, embarrassment and that their body has failed them. It is my job to show them it is NOT their body failing them, rather a symptom of suppression that weaves back through history and generations. It is so much more than a physical issue. It is a result of women believing they are not enough. It is a result of women believing lies about their womb.

It is my role to show women the true reflection of themselves: one of beauty, power and incredible possibilities. There is much work to be done and this is just the beginning. I healed second degree uterine prolapse because I awoke to the truth and I did the work to heal. Now, I’m showing others how they can do the same. 
Please share with the women in your life. They may not be talking about it, but they may be suffering beyond measure. https://amzn.to/37Gz2Et .

  • Healing Prolapse: Inspired Words for Your Journey Within, officially launches on Amazon on February 22 (pre-sale is open now). I am humbled by the response I've received after sending out just a few review copies of this 85-page book.

I wrote it to support women with Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP); to help them think about their symptoms in a new way and to share what I know after I healed what the medical establishment told me was not possible.
🌹
“I am half way through your book and I honestly can't even begin to tell you how amazing this is, and what a blessing this is to the POP community! Such a gift 🙏" — Lindsay T, Canada.
🌹
“Healing Prolapse is filled with empowerment and hope, two things that women who have been diagnosed with prolapse are rarely given. For many, the suggestions offered in this book may well be the missing link in their healing journey.”—Tracie L, United States.
🌹
“Inspirational! I absolutely loved it! Such a beautiful gift for women to read in order to acknowledge that we need to look past the physical in order to find true healing.”—Chyvawn N, Canada.
🌹
“Healing prolapse is a beautifully written book to help nurture and find completeness, from within. Shannon has given women hope to find a natural way of loving themselves, as when we tune in to the very core of our knowing, healing begins." — Jocelyn Oades, New Zealand.
🌹
“What a treasure to read Shannon’s new book! Such grace, love and support. There is no doubt that Shannon was destined to help women in this sacred way and after reading her new book, I think you will find your vibration lifted to a place where you can manifest and heal anything you desire! Starting with your womb. May the Divine Mother shine her light on all of you who seek to find your truth, and your path of healing in these pages."— Elly Numia, New Zealand.

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} A Selenite wand (pictured) is the ideal energy tool for all types of energy cleansing. Everyone needs one in their home. It is one of the the very few minerals that has the ability to quickly unblock stagnant energy and remove negative energy. Place one on each of your windowsills to protect your space and raise its vibration. Selenite crystals also greatly magnify the energy of anything that is placed upon them. Place your tumbled stones on top of them to clear their energy. 💎
Selenite is one of our must-have crystals—it’s one that we both wear each and everyday. It is a mineral that holds a very, very high vibration, working on many different energetic levels to cleanse, purify and clear your body of any negativity or energy blockages. Selenite crystals dispel all negative energy from the body and mind, bringing calming energies, deep peace and mental clarity.
💎
Unknown to many, Selenite also promotes fertility as well as unlocks any creative blocks. It is excellent for healers, light workers and people in the public to wear, as they act as an energetic shield surrounding your aura. Some even believe that its' natural ability to cleanse, purify and create energy flow throughout the entire energy system will help to restructure and regenerate cells. It is often used in holistic medicine treatments for physical healing, including cancer treatment and tumor reduction. 💎
Wearing a selenite necklace also shields and protects you from lower energy frequencies, especially energy vampires, spirits or ghosts. Selenite is a form of liquid light that infuses your aura and spirit with white light when worn or held.

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} Peacock Ore’s (also called Chalcopyrite) rainbow color surrounds you with light to inspire positivity.

I am surrounded by light and peace. This will amplify its properties for peace and protection.

It is also believed to be one of the strongest healing stones in the mineral kingdom, as it has the ability to align every chakra when placed upon it. Using it in body layouts causes a transformative experience that removes negative energy and replaces it with strong, positive energy. Meditating with them on a regular basis increases your intuition and helps you to become more in tune with the universe.

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} Black Tourmaline is one the ultimate protection crystals. If you are looking to clear, cleanse and unlock any energy blockages in your home, place a piece of Black Tourmaline in each of the 4 corners of the room or at the 4 corners of your property. This creates a protective shield of energy to ensure that no negative and harmful energy permeates your space. The human body is constantly bombarded with positive and negative energies. When you come in contact with people everyday, you often pick up some of their energy. To maintain a balanced mind, body and spirit, you want to make sure that your energy is 100% your own, so knowing how to remove negative energy from your energy field is key. 💎

Enema Detox: A Guide to How

December 19, 2012
enema detox

Once a natural health go-to for those in holistic health retreats and anyone brave enough to give it a go. An enema detox is now more commonplace, with social media a forum for anything from colonics to DIY liver flushes.

The following article was written as a guest post in 2012, by my friend and blogger-sister, the late and much-loved Jess Ainscough. I hope you enjoy her insights.

Learn how to use essential oils SAFELY and for most benefit
Essential oils are potent and offer most benefit when used correctly. Did you know? Each oil possesses particular chemical make-up and the application is often specific to the particular oil. Therefore, it's important to understand how to best use an oil to suit your particular situation. Learn how to use pure essential oils safely, and for most benefit by subscribing to my essential oils education newsletter at left.

I was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. And then again in 2009. After weighing up my options and doing a lot of research I decided to put all my faith in my body and employ so-called radical natural therapies to heal myself. This meant lots and lots of juicing, a clean plant-based whole food diet, meditation and numerous daily coffee enemas. Yes, coffee enemas. Coffee that goes up your butt.

Once upon a time I wouldn’t even do a number two with my boyfriend in the house. These days, we talk about enemas at the dinner table. As a health and wellness blogger, I love that I have created a safe online space where people can share their bodily concerns with me.

But the achievement I am most proud of is that it seems I’ve made conversations about enemas a little less taboo. Questions about rear-end irrigation constantly appear in my comment feeds from people desperate for more information about how to clean out their colons. It seems I’ve started a movement. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. No more toilet puns, I promise.

So why are coffee enemas such a big deal? Why is it that I often say that regular DIY enemas will change your life? Because they offer a helping hand to your poor, over-worked liver! Your liver is easily the hardest working organ in your body.

All day long it is busy sifting through everything your body consumes (this includes through your mouth, your nose and your skin). Your liver decides what is good enough to stay in your body and what is toxic and needs to be eliminated. This is no easy feat when you consider the amount of toxins that we consume on a daily basis. There are the cosmetics, chemicalised foods, cleaning products and petrol fumes – just to name a few.

This is where an enema detox comes in and works their magic. Coffee enemas help to stimulate the liver and increase bile production to excrete toxins more rapidly. They literally flush it out. They have the amazing ability to rescue people from all kinds of ailments including headaches, hangovers, colds and flu and yes, even cancer. At the end of World War I coffee enemas were employed as effective pain relief for wounded soldiers. Panadol shmanadol.

If you’ve read this far into the post, you must be intrigued by how to actually do a coffee enema, right? Don’t be shy. It is nowhere near as uncomfortable or gross as it may seem.

How to do an Enema Detox

To get things started, you will need to buy an enema kit (search online or ask at your local pharmacy or health store) and some organic ground coffee. Make it fair trade also, just to be nice. Then, once you’ve worked up the courage to give it a crack (I know, broke the promise), follow these instructions:

Boil enough coffee for two enemas just in case you can’t hold the first one and want to try again. For two enemas, bring one litre of water to the boil in a pot on the stove. Once boiling, remove from the stove and add six tablespoons of coffee. Boil for three minutes, then reduce to simmer for another 15 minutes. Remove from the stove and strain the coffee. Add eight ounces of coffee to your bucket and top it up with 16 ounces of purified water. Once you get used to this amount you can bump it up to 24 ounces of water to make the solution 32 ounces in total.

Lay a yoga mat or towels on your bathroom floor (for padding).

Release the clasp and let the liquid run through the tube and drip a bit into the sink. This will remove any air bubbles. Hang or sit the enema bucket on a chair. It needs to be higher than you so that gravity can do its thing. Not too high though or the liquid will go in too fast and you won’t be able to hold it.

Lie on your right side with your legs pulled up towards your chest. Lube up the end of the tube with a bit of coconut oil and insert about two inches into your bottom.

Let the solution flow all the way in and tighten the clamp before removing it. Then lie back and relax for 10 to 15 minutes.

See, easy. Contrary to popular belief, regular coffee enemas will not cause your bowel to rupture or your bowel movements to become impaired. I have been doing at least three every day for over a year now and my bowels are still fine and dandy. Enemas can become addictive though. My mum has joined me on the enema bandwagon and now she can’t go a day without her upside down coffee break. They have even helped her get through the horridness of detoxing from her regular coffee habit. Bottoms up!
