And on this week’s show!

It’s time to talk about relationships – with ourselves, with others, as parents, as lovers. We’re going everywhere today in what feels like a very useful toe-dip into the subject that is sure to have a part two. Rebecca Poole has decades of experience looking after humans and helping them feel well but after a masters in Chinese Medicine and practicing overseas in China, and several successful years of practice back home, she wanted to go deeper. “Why do people experience these illnesses chronically? Why sometimes when someone changes jobs or relationships does their health nosedive or dramatically improve?” Today, she is a healer bringing all her tools to her clients through private practice and group learning and so if you’ve ever wanted to start doing the important work of leaning into your relationship with yourself and others, I can confidently say this show is a must listen.

Questions I asked Rebecca:

  • You started practitioner work on TCM before adding counselling to your arsenal to support patients… what did Chinese Medicine offer you as someone who wanted to support people’s health, that you didn’t see in the other options available to study? 
  • What is ‘energy’ to you when you think about people in general? 
  • What are some tiny ways we can affect the energy of others and them, us that we might feel on any given day? 
  • How can the energy that surrounds us rather than comes from us – moon, gravity, seasons etc – impact, dictate or perhaps the word is, influence, our personal energy, and what then flows between humans? 
  • What is the energetic aspect of relationships and why is it so important? And can we talk about professional relationships, kid/parent relationships, friendships, and romantic firstly for an overview? (perhaps we can even thread examples through these different questions when they apply, in addition to romantic examples?) 
  • What does it mean to be sensitive in a relationship and is this a good or bad thing? Is it the same as being vulnerable? 
  • How we can reawaken our sensitivity through honesty? 
  • Is there any point where it is the right thing to do, to hold back on what we’re really feeling/tell a white lie because we are aware of their sensitivity to something? 
  • How can “potential” trap us in a romantic relationship? (Do you mean here “I know he can be more understanding if he tries so I’m going to stay” type thing?) 
  • I’m going to stay with the word ‘trap’ here and move back to your other love – acupuncture – and I saw you practice Chakra-puncture – do you feel sometimes (or maybe it’s all the time) that when there are emotions trapped in a person, and they cannot speak what’s inside, that this needs to be addressed from a physical perspective as well for truly freeing the physical/emotional energy and creating honest energy exchange between people?
