Discovering Your Pathway to Healing

Healing can be defined as restoration to soundness, or to a state of balance within the body. To be sure, experiencing life on life’s terms gives everyone a unique personal history. Moreover, this history defines what healing is and how it looks for the individual.

Trusting yourself and experimenting upon new information is the beginning of healing. Discovering your resonant personal truths are like the keys opening a door. Walking along your pathway to healing often means stepping outside your comfort zone.

We are all social beings who thrive in safe, nurturing environments. No one is meant to go it alone through life. Everyone has moments of needing support and sometimes we just a witness for healing to occur.

“There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all argument, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance. This principle is, contempt prior to examination.”
William Paley

The Five A’s to Change

Surrendering attachments takes courage as it means examining your beliefs and survival skills. Bringing these patterns into the light allows you to feel and heal any leftovers. This process of clearing the trapped energies of thoughts and emotions is the fastest way of changing behaviors. In fact, there is a direct relationship. The speed of change equals the level of willingness in practicing all of the five following steps.

Awareness

Steps to HealingTo be sure, awareness is the first step leading to change. Nothing can flower or grow in the dark. The moment we become aware of anything, then change has begun.

“You cannot solve a problem with the same level of thinking that created it”
Albert Einstein

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”
Albert Einstein

Acceptance

Next comes acceptance. Practicing acceptance sounds simple, but it’s not always easy. This is a step that many people often miss. Life isn’t perfect. There are no perfect people or perfect situations. As a result, most people judge themselves or others because of it. This, in turn, leads to all kinds of dysfunctional self perceptions.

Allowance

The third step leading to a lasting change is allowance. Allowance is a process of making space for your thoughts and emotions regarding what is happening in the moment. Unfortunately, most people skip this step. Exploring your thoughts and feeling your feelings allows them to be fully cleared and healed. Self judgement or fear of being judged by others often blocks or traps the energy of thoughts and emotions. Hidden thoughts and trapped emotions end up creating most of our pain.

Action

The fourth step of change is action. For most individuals this is the second step after awareness. Unfortunately, taking action without practicing acceptance and allowance weakens it’s effectiveness, making it unsustainable. Blocked or trapped energies are like termites gnawing away internally weakening your resolve.

Appreciation

The final step of change is appreciation. An attitude of gratitude opens the mind and allows you to see what’s working well and going right. This is more than just a thought of gratitude or appreciation. This is a full body experience which can only be experienced by practicing all five steps.

Practice Focus

In short, my practice focus is finding and clearing imbalances creating acute and chronic pain.

Everyone consists of physical, mental, emotional, energetic, and spiritual components that are intimately interwoven. These components are called “bodies” and are really describing differences in energy density. On the whole, each body reflects upon and affects the others.

In short, this means that the underlying causes of pain are not always physical in origin. Imbalances may be anchored outside the physical body, while creating a presentation within the physical body.

Acute Pain

Acute pain is caused by local inflammation and is described as sharp, burning, cramping, aching or pressured. Often it eases as the physical injury heals. Common causes of include accidents, overuse injuries and life events like childbirth.

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is labelled as such when it lasts beyond 3 months. Symptoms can be similar to acute pain or vague in nature. It’s often described as gnawing, pounding or deep aching. Generally there are no specific signs on x-rays or scans to indicate a source. Common examples include fibromyalgia, migraines, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Above all, chronic pain creates feelings of depression or hopelessness within individuals suffering from it.
