Moving Forward

Spreading Healing Light Worldwide

President's Message


Here it is, our first Newsletter!  

The HTWF has certainly stepped up its pace in all our facets since the beginning of this year.  "Moving Forward" is the Foundation's theme for 2014; I am so very excited with the work that the various committees are committed to doing, and they are implementing some new ideas that can only help us to "Spread Healing Light Worldwide!" 

This quarterly newsletter is but one example of our expansion of energies. Letters are being drafted to solicit donors from large corporations. We're readying ourselves for the Chicago Healing Touch Conference in August. Our Heel to Heal runs continue to gather momentum with every event. The rate of grant submissions is already up from last year. Online raffles pop up on occasion that keep us all involved.

May this Spring bring lots of new beginnings to All!

Health Tip

<![if !supportLineBreakNewLine]>

In Chinese medicine, springtime is the time the liver energetically is in control and being recharged.  The healing color for the liver is green, a beautiful spring green color like new grass shoots or dandelion greens.  The emotions connected with the liver are anger or happiness.  When doing healing, particularly on the liver, these emotions may be sparked.  There are many diets associated with liver cleanses but a good place to start is to be aware of extreme emotions and eat organic, fresh spring greens to help balance the energies.  And of course do Healing Touch on yourself and those in need.  Drinking yin/yang water is also good.  Mix boiled water with natural spring water, 1:1, and add a slice of squeezed lemon.  It is good to help balance this important and powerful detoxifying organ at this time the seasons change from the dormancy of winter to new growth.  Happy Spring!
