Celebrating Self-Care for the Caregiver

May is often known as the month for Mother’s day, but in this age of non-binary identity I choose to celebrate the next 2 months as the Caregiver’s months, beginning with Nurturer’s Day on May 13, 2018. I grew up being trained to be a caregiver, and I found myself falling into the widely held unspoken belief that I was to care for everyone else, but not myself. Over the last several decades, I have been honored to work on many individuals who selflessly work day-in and day-out for their entire lives in the service of others. Don’t get me wrong, I am delighted to be in service to my family, my community and to my world! I am also an avid advocate for not leaving yourself out. If you are not in service to yourself, then you are exploiting a hidden weakness in your family, your community and your world. You are using up a finite resource without recharging it. You are disrespecting a person within all of those groups. You are poisoning the mind, the body and the soul of a person who is desperately needed by their family, community and world. It’s time to change the paradigm!

What kind of an amazing world could we create if it began with the idea that each of us is responsible for self-care? Wearing yourself to the bone would not be tolerated. Setting unachievable goals would be unacceptable. Forgetting to eat, or take time to relax would never again be viewed as lazy. Children often learn far more from what they see and experience than from what they are told. Adults may learn at a slower pace, having lost some of the sponge-like qualities that our children possess, but we still learn from the examples around us. It is time to set the examples for our children, and our children’s children, so that they may inherit a world which prizes caregivers.

For the month of May, I am encouraging people to reach out and care for their caregivers. Don’t just give them a token gift of your affection. Give them the time and the means to restore themselves. Help them see the value in what they have come to take for granted. Show them what it is like to be cared for, by caring for them, and then by caring for yourself so they don’t have to come back and clean up a mess! Any Healing Session or Package resulting from an Initial Consultation scheduled in either May or June will include a “Happy Nurturer’s Day” card and a jar candle sent to your special nurturing caregiver so that they will be reminded that they are a light of community. Each candle will be anointed with essential oils specifically chosen for your caregiver.

Celebrate the caregiver in your life, and remind them how much you care about them! (They tend to forget!)

In love and laughter,
Master Healer, Meade Neumann

The link between peace of mind and healthy body

Do you understand how the mind influences the body? You’re not a flash drive plugged into a really intricate biological computer. You are a spiritual creature manifested inside of your body and, because of that, you have an amazing ability to heal or to hinder yourself. Take a moment and think about the times you have had a bad day. The longer your bad day persisted, the more likely you started to experience physical pain. Maybe your back or your shoulders started to hurt. Maybe you started to get a headache. Maybe you just felt tired and overwhelmed. The longer your stress has persisted the more physical symptoms probably started popping up. You can stare at that pattern all day long and it’s not really going to change!

From a Healer’s perspective, there are always two objectives we are trying to achieve. First, we want to understand what is going on. Then, we want to affect what is going on so that you can experience greater harmony, greater flow and greater prosperity. Some patterns are easier to understand. Some problems are easier to solve, and you are already aware of that. What I want you to remember is that you are always manifesting your mental emotional patterns. It’s not a question of if, it’s a matter of recognizing that every human does it every moment of every day of their lives. Like any skill, though, there are levels of understanding and accomplishment. Imagine being able to take this innate ability and learn to consciously guide it. Imagine feeling yourself start to get out of sorts and decide it’s time to manifest joy. Imagine being capable of allowing yourself the time and care necessary for you to become truly comfortable in your skin. Imagine having so much compassion for yourself that you no longer beat yourself up and punish yourself for imaginary failures.

Just imagine what it could be like, if your body was reflecting your peace of mind instead of your suffering.

Now do you understand? Healing isn’t some baffling new age idea that never makes sense. It isn’t some crazy idea that only makes sense when you’re in an altered state of mind. Healing is what happens when you learn enough to let go and flow, surfing on the wave of the Universe’s Abundant Love.

Welcome to Renewed Spirit Healing!

My name is Meade Neumann and I am a Master Healer and the Owner/Operator of Renewed Spirit Healing. Your body is a manifestation of your mind and spirit and it is designed to be that way. Your soul doesn’t just inhabit that shell of flesh like some cheap rental motel. Every biological process was designed to run the energy intrinsically associated with that process, and your body was designed to always restore homeostasis, the state of prime health. Unfortunately, Life is really good at spinning you around until you have lost your directions and don’t remember which way is healthy anymore!
At Renewed Spirit Healing, I help my clients connect with their bodies, often in ways they never imagined. I help them understand where pain comes from, why imbalances exist and where fear has been holding them hostage. In finding these understandings, these patterns, we give sense to the chaos and confusion. Once we understand the patterns, we can create a path towards health. I help empower my clients and teach them techniques so that they may never have to feel helpless.
My energy work comes from three (3) main perspectives. First, I’m an Intuitive Medical. This means that your body speaks to me and gives me impressions of the emotions, the traumas and the mindset which has become laid into your body in various places. Most often, I am drawn towards what I can most easily help with, but I am capable of connecting with any part of the body as you need. 2nd, I’m a Reiki Master. If you remember the old experiment where you focused sunlight through a magnifying glass then you get the basic picture. In this case, the sunlight becomes the Universal Energy. The magnifying glass becomes me, because my job is to focus and direct the energy and then get out of the way. (What am I going to do, teach the Universe what to do?) Finally,I’m a Greenlief Master Healer. It’s an old Norse Healing Modality which allows me to put you back in touch with your own body. Basically, hundreds of years ago, they didn’t have the word for DNA, but the Norse healers believed that all creatures held an innate understanding of what they were supposed to look like and how they were supposed to function. That understanding far surpassed conscious thought and allowed the healers to tap into the body as deeply as they could understanding. Today it has evolved to incorporate and welcome the intervening hundreds of years worth of physiology, science, medicine and learning in general. Together, these skills give me a powerful ability to help you!
There are two other aspects of my services. All of my sessions include Life Coaching. I have been helping my community for over 25 years with joy. My aim is to help people understand themselves and their world so that they can make positive changes in their lives! I can also include Massage Therapy. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist for the last 10 years and currently hold licenses in both North Carolina and Tennessee. Massage Therapy can be a powerful tool, especially as it pertains to the concept of safe touch. When your fears have taught you decades worth of lessons on how dangerous the world is, sometimes you need a visceral understanding of safety!
You are human, and therefore you are (at some level) a social creature. The connection I establish with my clients allows them to heal old wounds, reconnecting mind, body and spirit in ways absolutely essential for Health. Don’t you deserve that?
Here’s hoping I get to hear from you soon!
In Love and Light,
Master Healer Meade Neumann
