When I was very ill, years ago, I called my elder and teacher. What she told me surprised me. I thought she would tell me to come over to her house for healing. Instead, she told me to get out my crystals, sit down and heal myself.
What I wanted is what most of us want when we are really feeling bad. I wanted someone to fix me. I was sick and I wanted to be pampered and attended to by someone else. It didn’t occur to me that for anyone to be able to help, the true healing needed to begin with me.
Even though I didn’t particularly “want” to do healing work on myself, I followed her instructions and in the process discovered a power within myself I had not yet tapped into.
Because of my teacher’s wise instruction I have since learned that when I need to heal, I begin doing the work first and if I still need support, I open to Divine guidance in locating the right and best healer to help me. Doing my work first has given me some significant results:
1) I often discover I can heal entirely with my own energetic healing gifts and/or healing knowledge I have already acquired.
2) I access new levels of spiritual awareness and healing ability I might not have otherwise reached
3) If I do need assistance, I have already established an inner field of commitment and dedication to my healing that attracts the right healer or doctor to assist me
4) If needed, the right person to provide me with help frequently enters my physical space before I ever even need to ask for help
5) Or, within one or two phone calls, I am with the perfect person to assist me.
I don’t shop around any more for the right diagnosis, doctor, healer, technique or treatment. Why not? Because my own energetic field is charged and committed enough to easily draw in the right insight, person, or treatment.
I have gotten quite used to this way of approaching healing—that’s the way my colleagues and students approach healing too, but a few weeks ago I was reminded that some of us don’t know there is a more effective way, and we are still shopping.
I was at a party recently where I was talking to a woman about the people I have met who have dramatic stories of self-healing that occurred when they applied themselves fully in understanding their conditions and responding to their intuitive guidance. Her response reminded me that not everyone is enamored with taking full responsibility for their healing journey.
In this case, the woman I was speaking with said out loud what I believe a lot of us really want but don’t admit. She candidly said, “I don’t really want to figure it for myself. I want someone to tell me what is wrong and how to fix it.” She is still looking for someone to make the diagnosis and prescription without her active involvement.
Now, sometimes you are fortunate enough to find a doctor or healer that really is able to nail it the first time. They know exactly what is wrong and exactly what treatment solves the problem. You do what they say and you heal. This can happen often enough, that you could easily believe this is the best way to approach healing all of the time.
However sometimes, as many of us know who have experienced chronic illnesses, diagnosis is more challenging than it might appear, and you end up going to one doctor after another and one healer after another, perhaps getting some relief, but never quite getting complete healing.
Finally, when we are about to give up, in a moment of awakening we realize we had better get a little more personally involved. And just maybe we need to get some insights from a higher dimension. That’s when we finally surrender the search for someone to diagnose and fix us. When we stop shopping and get involved, the healing journey actually begins.
Who wants to heal themselves, especially when you are feeling really bad? Quite possibly, no one. Who wants to get still and listen for intuitive guidance about what is happening and what you need to do? Possibly, not many of us. But I suspect my teacher’s wisdom applies for many of us.
If we truly want to heal, we are the first ones that need to be committed, open to our guidance and become actively involved. Then, if we still need help, we have primed the pump for the right help to be drawn to us.
