The emotions you feel over and over and over again provide the vibrational cellular landscape that creates or destroys your health.

As a medical intuitive healer, I read the emotions behind every illness, disease process, muscle ache, chronic pain, infection, common cold or chronic condition.

And when I get sick, one of the first questions I ask myself is, “What’s this all about anyway?”

When you make a habit of self inquiry, courageously facing your inner self, you maintain a healthy dialogue between your mind and body.

This week, I got a call from a prospective client suffering from bladder problems.

“The one thing I want to know is, have you dealt with bladder problems before?” she asked.

“Only a few times,” I replied.

I should have known better than to speak ironically to a person with bladder problems (as in, “I’ve only taught yoga a short while,” meaning actually 20 years.)

No, that was my bad.

She hung up immediately.

After a short while, we became friends again as she finally understood what I was saying.

I texted her an article I had written along with information about what frequently goes on, where the bladder, kidneys and ureters become desynchronized.

I have pages of directions on hands-on healing for the urinary system, as these organs can lose proper communication with each other, and this often happens after common surgical procedures so indeed I have practiced healing bladder issues more times than I can even remember.

But back to the story of dealing with someone with a bladder infection who didn’t know my deadpan sense of humor.

The positive emotions behind your bladder include:

  • Flexibility

As in all things in life, balance is paramount.

At the end of the day your bladder from a mental, emotional and spiritual perspective is about control.

Helpful affirmations for bladder problems include:







Are you in charge of your own life, or do you feel controlled by others?

Do you try to control too much – not only your own life but the affairs of others, the state of the nation, even the weather – or do you practice going with the flow?

Talk about a true cause for exhaustion.

When you use your personal chi to try to control every little detail of everything and everyone around you, believe me you will end up one day lying on the floor wondering what exactly happened.

Often we think we are simply being prudent.

You tell your children, your husband, your wife, your mother, your father, the people at the bank, your boss, the checkout clerk, the waiter and everybody around you what to do, how to do it, what they should charge, what to wear, what to think and how to act – just how you think each and every little aspect of their life should be run.

After all, don’t you know best?

You’ve spent a lot of time thinking through all this.

Haven’t you got all this figured out anyway?

Other people should take notes.

You’re merely being helpful, of course.

But you end up with bladder problems and the antibiotics don’t seem to do anything.

At this point, when we feel exhausted and sick, we need to pause to ask ourselves whether the habit of making an attempt to control life has actually been working for us.

Deep down the most controlling people are the most afraid, the least trusting of life.

I remember once I visited a shaman.

He said to me, “Catherine, you’ve been trying to control the weather.”

I realized that when Wednesdays would roll around, I would wish very strongly that the weather would be nice enough so that I could teach my qi gong class outside in my garden, one of my favorite things to do as I love building my chi around my flowers in the fresh air and sunshine.

When it rains or its too windy or cold we come inside my studio, the second best thing as we get to practice qi gong next to my orchids, but still, I personally would rather be outside around the trees and my blue jar fountain.

The ultimate example of this was one day I was driving past a homeless shelter.

I saw a woman sitting on a bench with four children, including one in a stroller.

It was starting to rain.

I immediately became concerned for the destitute woman and her children.

Pointing my finger up to the sky, I said, “You stop that right now.”

And it did.

I’m not making that story up.

Not that I have any pride in it, it’s just a bad example of me misusing my personal chi because I thought I knew better.

So when the shaman told me I was trying to control the weather, I asked, “Well what do I do on Wednesday afternoons when I want to practice qi gong in my garden?”

The shaman replied, “Let it rain.”

What is healing? Healing happens when we go with the flow, recognizing that all things work out for the highest good, even when we think we have better ideas about how this thing called life should actually be run.
