I was chatting with a client today and realized something I wanted to share with you. Sometimes in our self-healing, we are hoping that a treatment we are using will help us heal, without having to become too personally involved. That’s what we are used to when we take allopathic medications. It can happen with other treatments.
But if we leave it all up to the treatments, we are missing our opportunity. And the process may be slower than we would like.
Healing is a journey to your self-awareness. If you aren’t using it as an opportunity to discover your true nature, abilities and spiritual talents, you are missing out on its potential gift.
We think of healing as a nuisance, keeping us away from what we really want to do. But what if healing is the thing our subconscious mind/higher self wants us to do? What if the healing is the doorway to our self-realization? Then we are missing out, aren’t we? In my experience, getting involved is when the real healing started happening. That’s why I talk about a person’s spiritual gifts when I do a healing reading. I know you need to be deeply involved, discovering the power of who you really are as well as your true potential as a human being.
Many of us struggle when we engage our energetic healing gifts for our own healing. We come up against perceived barriers or limits, where our beliefs seem to stop us.
Part of you may believe you really can influence your healing. Perhaps another part of you isn’t so sure. Here’s something you can do to encourage yourself through any doubts.
Imagine a time in your life when you wanted to learn something new, and you did in fact succeed. A part of you was probably scared and wondered if you could really do it. Perhaps another part of you was really excited about the potential.
Allow yourself to remember how you coached yourself to keep going. What did it feel like when you finally succeeded? I remember the first time I put snow skis on. There were kids zipping by me on the bunny-hill, while I was still trying to figure out how to remain upright. I was nervous, embarrassed, wondered if I would ever learn how to do it, and almost gave up a couple of times.
But I told myself if the kids could learn how to do it, so could I, and it looked like so much darned fun. I would just have to live with my embarrassment and get on with it. I persevered until I got it and glided blissfully down the slope. The challenge with healing some parts of our bodies is that we can’t see what is going on.
It truly requires faith to know that what you have intended is actually happening. In a sense, you have to decide your dedicated practice is making progress in your healing. Here’s the deal. It’s happening, the same way I learned to ski. Healing is happening as I’m learning how to do it. In the same way skiing was happening as I was learning how to do it.
If you aren’t used to using your spiritual gifts, it is going to take some practice and lots of repetition. Some days you’ll heal more than others, just like some days I spent more time upright on my skis than others. Yet, each day I experienced even a little success, I felt great.
May I suggest that you find a story from your past—one in which you learned something new and succeeded. Before you use a Sound Healing CD, do Reiki, begin doing your light work or taking your herbs, remember your success story and FEEL the success.
Then tell the cells of your body that’s what you and they are doing together—feeling the success of a body that is completely well. Then practice away!
