If you have taken the leap and begun to explore the world of healing and healers- congratulations! While I understand that it is pain and discomfort that most likely drive you to this unfolding – it is an incredible journey upon which you are embarking. Much of what you will learn will come out of the requirement that you be your own advocate with the people who help you. Learning to trust yourself throughout the process is the greatest learning of all.
Here are some tips that might be of use along the way.
~99.999% of healers can only go as far with you as they have gone themselves. Yet, most will be unconscious of their own limitations, or unable to acknowledge they can not meet you if you have gone beyond where they are.
~Most doctors still do not consider diet, emotions, the body or the energy field as part of what needs to be attended to in a healing crisis. You will most likely have to pursue these pieces on your own.
~Most doctors are still unaware of the powerful implications of mercury fillings in disease.
~Many healers do not have other names to give you of people who may be helpful to you upon your journey. You will often do best to ask people who you care about and trust who has has helped them along the way.
~If you are gifted- if you sense energy or are highly attuned to your body – you will most likely have to train a healer to work with you at the level of integrity and subtlety you require. Just because you are paying someone to assist does not mean they know more about you than you do.
~Focus on healing and focus on cure are not the same thing. Define your focus and clarify your intention with the people who you ask for assistance on your journey.
When you are beginning with a healer I advise you to:
1- Trust your internal sense. If some part says this person is not right – allow that truth. Let the truth of your response to the other be louder than the need for help.
2- Allow yourself the option to decline the work during the first session. You can even let the practitioner know this. You are there to see how it goes. It is your right to choose or decline to continue.
3-Define in advance your goals and anything you want the practitioner to know about you. Ask them to repeat back anything you want to make sure they understand.
4-Check in with yourself afterwards and find out how the work sits with you.
There is no protocol or philosophy that will ever matter more than your own internal knowing, internal timing and needs for processing. If any practitioner has a “way” they work – always make sure this person has flexibility to allow for your unique path through the work.
