Heather Bradford (Street Articles Author)

I hold a Diploma of Education (Primary), have a strong interest in health, and have studied NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), a time based therapy and Hypnotherapy to the levels of Master Practitioner and Trainer. I am also a Reiki Master.

My current interests are sharing online both here and on squidoo (where my username is canoz). My current focus is understanding and sharing in the areas of personal growth and the unconscious mind.

I am a wife and mother with a small but strong network of family and friends. I enjoy coffee with friends, craft outlets such as patchwork, embroidery and scrapbooking, traveling, doing things with my family, and cooking when I have the time and inclination.

Glad you could stop by. Life is indeed beautiful.

When the movie, The Secret, came bursting into consciousness a few years ago it seemed to start a revolution of change. Its message was positive and full of hope. You can have anything your heart desires. You can achieve great things. Change is within your grasp. It is the dawning…

My Truth About Drinking
This article has simmered in my mind because, in truth, I don’t actually want to write it. It’s a similar feeling to the first few I wrote that explored the unconscious mind and like topics. They were my ‘truth’ and yet I was anxious about sharing something I didn’t fully…

You're Just Like Your Mother!
Most married people know that one of the best ways to inflame a disagreement is to pull out those five little words: “You’re just like your mother”. The truth is often a bitter pill to swallow and the irony is that men often marry a woman because she is just…

The Power Of the Mind To Heal
The power of the unconscious mind has been demonstrated in many cultures spanning many era’s. There are those people who are so ‘in tune’ with their own ‘self’ that they have healed or created great things simply through, it would seem, the power of the mind. The start of this…

Silence: Finding My Balance
Silence. It’s all around me but not in my head. My thoughts are jumbled and tumbling all over each other in their quest to make themselves consciously coherent. The physical silence is very loud to me right now. There is a quiet that has settled over my home, and more…

I Needed That!
“I needed that today, Heather, thank you”. Is there any better comment to have tacked beneath an article? The tangible evidence that I have helped someone. There is a person ‘out there’ who has had a need met, through something that I’ve written, at some point in time. I’m a…

Good Health Means Listening to the Soul's Desires!
“Ill health is no more or less than a state of being out of balance with the soul’s desires to creatively express itself in the physical world”. I stopped reading and stared in thought at nothing but the internal ponderings of my mind. That statement is profound, interesting and perhaps…

The Whimsical Side Of Success
Success! What will it give me? What will I have if I obtain it? How do I quantify it for myself? It is easy to start to qualify success based on the house I will design, the neighbourhood I will live in and the car I will drive. I could…

A Quest To Understand My Truth
It has occurred to me that there are some subjects that are difficult to write about. I’m interested in energy and the unconscious mind. I respect their power and am on a quest to believe, trust and understand. How can one explain something so elusive though? My truth will be…
