All I Want For Valentine's Day Is A Heart

While millions of people today are scrambling to make last minute plans for their sweeties and significant  others, dasing to romantic getaways, buying engagement rings, flowers, chocolates and various other trinkets to brighten their loved one's day, Linsey Bingham is receiving a more precious gift... a second shot at life. She has been waiting for this day since she for this day since she was first diagnosed with dialated cardiomyopathy ( and enlarged heart) on June 20th, 2012. Linsey (then 8)  is only 9 years old.

Linsey's parents Jason and Stacey Bingham, were beside themselves with worry because just 6 years prior, their oldest daughter Sierra had recieved a heart transplant for teh same condition.  Having to live this nightmare all over again for a second time is something that no parent should have to suffer. Yet it is happening a therid time with their youngest son Gage, who is currently on medication in an attempt to controll his condition. 3 out of the Bingham's 5 children are afflicted with this disease. Their oldest child Sierra has had a transplant and is facing a life-long battle to keep her body from rejecting her new heart. Soon to join her in the fight is her younger sister Linsey who is recieving the operation for her new heart today.

If you believe in a higher power, please pray for Linsey to have a successful operation and a speedy recovery. And if you don't believe, the just sending your positive thoughts, love, and well wishes will I'm sure be much appreciated by the Binghams. I'm sending a prayer that her Valentine's day will be the best ever, and that this is just the first of many more Happy Valentines to come.

For more information on the  Binghams and how you can support them through donations please visite their webpage at: or their blog which gives young Linsey's response to his happy day at: and remember their fight is not over. They still have to hope for young Gage and the continuing conditon of their daughters.

Waiting To Exhale

A quote from the famous song of the late, great Whitney Houston entitled "Exhale" said it best when she sung "You'll find a point when you will exhale." I think this happens to everyone at some time in their life and today it happened to me... again. Troubles seemed to mount to the point where I became confused as to what my next step should be and where I should turn to. That's when I remembered to breathe. Just the simple action of breathing in and then letting out the air. Advice that is so simple and pure --and something I've been reading a lot about lately. I've recently learned a revolutionary new healing technique pioneered by a brilliant man named Gordon Smith. He wrote a book on his unique method which he calls Quantum Touch. His method has literally changed the face of energy healing, and in the same breath (pun intended) powerfully enhancing other modalities such as reiki, chiropractic medicine, massage therapy and a host of other energy therapies. Smith points to breath-work as one of the key most important factors behind his amazing discovery. With practices like a process he calls 'running the energy', a rhythmic pranayamic style of breathing that is important for raising a healing vibratory resonance, visualizations, and focusing on the universal energy of love, you can be a healer in a very short amount of time. I finished the book over the course of a few days and have already integrated the process into my other energy work with some pretty amazing results. I predict that this invaluable way of healing is soon going to be an energy healing standard. Already I can't imagine how I've done my work without it! To find out more about Quantum Touch, simply visit Gordon Smith's website at  or purchase the book by clicking on the link below. It's an amazing read and will forever change how you percieve the body's ability to heal.
