Author: Linda Hourihan

I am Linda Hourihan, a ordained Christian Universal Life Church minister and certified chaplain, with the understanding of Interfaith beliefs. Interfaith is open and respectful, not confrontational. Obviously Jesus did not only go to and speak with people who only believed like him. I choose not to be called reverend, since Jesus tells us not to be called Rabbi, Teacher or Leader, or any other religious title. My ministry is modeled after that of Jesus, who did not have a church, and went out to where the people are. Today, most people are online, thus the impetus for this online ministry. Please feel free to leave comments. Click on the light gray line that says to leave a comment, at the top left of each post. I am retired from my life's work as: international Holistic Health Counselor/Practitioner (HHCP), massage therapist, Reiki Master Teacher and New Paradigm Multi-Dimensional Master Teacher, Qigong Master Teacher, Master Catechist in teaching religious education, former feature writer with the Milford Daily News, Laconia Daily Sun, and author of The Virtue Of Virtues, and Mystery of the Sturbridge Keys. I am a 2005 graduate of the American Institute of Holistic Health & Wellness, studying under Dr. Dolores Seymour. The American Institute of Holistic Health & Wellness is accredited by the American Association of Drugless Professionals, and the National Accreditation and Certification Board. This is a lifetime and international certification. I have studied extensively in the fields of holistic health in mind, body and spirit which naturally includes counseling on all life issues, and bodywork. This blog addresses mental health, physical health and spiritual health. There are drugless therapies that work very well most of the time when applied, and have no chemical side effects, obviously, except when they are not followed. I have listed my areas of expertise. Rather than think of these as individual studies on different topics, it would be more accurate to see the various fields of study as facets on a multifaceted diamond, fully integrated. I am a former member of the Branford Hall Career Institute Advisory Board; and former owner of The Massage Clinic, LLC. I am trained in M.I.N.D.S. Holistic Alternative Psychology, with an emphasis on methods, individualized plans of action, fostering the ability of the individual to reach his or her highest potential physically, emotionally and spiritually; with advanced perspectives of positive personal growth, changing attitudes from negative to positive; enhancing intuition and self-discovery through creative endeavors, and improving health as impacted by psychological states. I work with M.I.N.D.S. Wellness & Body/Mind Consciousness, which features positive self-analysis/awareness, self-control development programs, conditioning the healing mind, controlling mood swings, anxiety, avoiding depression and raising self-esteem to its highest level. M.I.N.D.S. Meta-Psychology is person centered rather than technically oriented, and focuses on psychological health, consciousness, human possibilities, and challenges of body, mind and spiritual development. A person cannot heal in any program void of attention to their own spiritual development. As a matter of fact, many mental and physical ailments can be rooted when spiritual sickness is at the root of the problem. I am a retired certified Qigong instructor (2011), teaching Qigong healing and breathing applications for levels 1, 2 and 3. Qigong is a 4,000 year old Chinese medicine practice that moves "chi," the life giving energy of the body. The health-promoting effects of Qigong are: 1) Improves the motion of blood, warms the blood and enhances whole body circulation. 2) Stimulates appetite, sexual function, assimilation of nutrients and digestion/elimination. 3) Accelerates metabolism, weight loss, decreases need for sleep. 4) Bolsters the immune system by reducing cortisol, a known inhibitor of cytokine production. 5) Develops dexterity, reflexes, and prevents osteoporosis in clinical studies. 6) Opens arteries allowing greater brain-based microcirculation to prevent Alzheimer's disease. 7) Enhances mental acuity, focus and concentration. The Qi (chi, life force, prana) draws focus and trains the mind. 8) Helps us to calm down, relax and become more peaceful. 9) Focuses mental, physical and spiritual energies together as one. This particular Qigong Class included a food component, tying the energy of food to the energy of Qigong, and using food as medicine. Chemical medications attempt to mimic the benefits and properties of organic plant life, including fruits and vegetables and using their stems, spores and seeds. Clinical studies have been done on so many diseases, like diabetes, which can be reversed by eating certain foods high in phytochemicals. I wish to share the information I have learned about how foods work to heal our bodies. I am a 2001 graduate of the DoveStar Institute of Holistic Technology, specializing in body and energy work. Although I am trained as a Master Reiki Teacher and New Paradigm Multidimensional Therapist (NPMDT) Teacher, both of which use vibrational healing, I kept studying accurate knowledge of truth in my spiritual journey, and discovered that these are the "Old Ways" talked about. After teaching all over New England, I retired from this physical work, focusing on the “New Way” (often called “The Way”). Now this blog is my legacy, a healing gift to the world in need of hope, kindness, empathy, compassion, encouragement, truth, faith, light and love from the Good God above. I now further accurate knowledge and healing of mind, body and spirit, as Jesus taught what his Father taught him, making sure what I share is scripturally accurate. Jesus was the best healer of all. He told us what to do and how to do it, to make it through this world, and into his Kingdom to come, as he promised. There, all healing will take place to the full. In the meantime, here we all are, some of us hurting in one way or another, others of us have questions, or are simply need encouragement. There are natural remedies out there without horrific side-effects. I will share common sense solutions that work naturally. It is amazing how many of these healing remedies work with the thought processes of the mind, one of our most powerful God-given gifts we have. I will make no suggestions to any chemical solutions. I refer all who seek such remedies to see their own doctors. This is a journey, for me as well as for you. I share knowledge when I discover it. I do not claim to have all the answers. I am merely sharing my life's journey, which has taken me from Catholic roots for my first 47 years, metaphysical/spiritual approach for the next 10 years, back to conservative Christian understanding of the traditional Bible for the past 6 years. I held back from posting during these last 6 years because my study was intensive. My conclusion? I have come to understand Jesus, the Father and the Holy Spirit so much better. I invite you to come along with me on my spiritual quest to come to know Jesus and his and our Father better, with the insight of the creative force of Holy Spirit. The answers I have uncovered may surprise you. In my life’s physical work, some clients were referred to me by doctors prior to their patient's surgery, only to find that the surgeries were no longer needed after the massage bodywork therapy protocol. I have personally successfully helped people eliminate pain associated with: migraine headaches and sciatica; and neck, shoulder, arm, back, hip, leg and feet pain. Massage therapy should be the first protocol for muscle pains in the body, addressing pain by the least invasive method of treatment first, and prior to chemical medicinal approaches, which often have negative side effects. I operated by own business for 12 years, and personally worked on more than 5,000 of the 8,000 clients who came to The Massage Clinic for help. I believe Eastern Medicine (naturopathic and homeopathy) and Western Medicine (surgery and drug therapy) ought to work together, as in complementary approaches, rather than the alternative approach, which implies one medicinal approach over the other. Both systems need each other to be whole. Most modern healing facilities have integrated both approaches very well. Mental, emotional and spiritual crisis is often at the root of physical illness. Addressing the realities of our lives, with a direct approach and a vision for wellness and health is the key for healing. Focusing on healing leads to healing. Focusing on illness keeps people ill, mentally, emotionally, spirituality and physically. Since people's spirituality is part of their whole health and well-being, I became a Universal Life Church minister to better understand all faiths, after a life-long Catholic spiritual journey. However, I have learned that Jesus did not come so that all people could continue in the "Old Ways" (Wicca, Babylonian, Celtic, Greek, Roman and New Age false religions). It is not all the same, nor equal. Jesus lovingly came to teach us a New Way (The Way), and to correct errors that have been taught since the beginning of time. The truth of Jesus' message is something he historically lived and died for. His message is that important. Jesus did not ever teach that Interfaith is the same message that he came to proclaim, nor something to be promoted. However, my Comparative Religions Course taught me that Interfaith is not about homogenizing religious differences; rather awareness of Interfaith seeks to find methods so that each can relate to the other in a positive manner. Interfaith is a process where people committed to their respective religions and spiritual paths meet for the purpose of mutual understanding, appreciation, and enrichment. Interfaith dialogue is open and respectful, not confrontational or hateful. The Way of Jesus is LOVE. Jesus' "New Way," is one of peace, love, forgiveness, kindness, empathy compassion and joy. Jesus came to tell us about his Father in Heaven's sovereignty, the Kingdom to come, and how we are to live until all Bible promises are fulfilled. All of this is mentioned in the prayer he taught, known as the Lord’s Prayer, or the Our Father Prayer. Jesus did not say to hate in all its dark forms: prejudice, envy, lust, greed, pride, murder/killing, lying, cheating, stealing, slander, and all the rest of the evil inclinations, like throwing certain books of the Bible out because they clearly elevate women, both in Creation and in our everyday life. I especially love the verse in Matthew 7:1 where he says, "Stop judging!" I think that is key if we are to get along with each other in this world, and not bring God's judgment down on ourselves. Now in my retirement, this blog allows me to share what has helped so many people. I am also continuing to bloom where I am planted, in the garden of this Christian worldwide ministry.
