Dear gorgeous ones…
I know that for many people, the idea of needing healing relates to feeling broken in some way (or many ways). As if there’s something wrong with you. Stuff that needs fixing in order for you to be “okay”.
But of course, you’re not broken, and you don’t need to be fixed.
I had a lovely chat on Aesha Kennedy’s podcast about my definition of healing, too. We’re not fixing anything.
We’re in a process of refining and revealing the light of who we truly are!
While we are conditioned to believe the story of being broken and flawed…
It’s time to start thinking of healing differently
Something I’ve noticed in working with my clients is that the most powerful changes they experience occur when we identify and address key issues, beliefs and traumas that have been wedged tightly in the mind and/or body.
Many of these “programs” begin early in life. Often while we’re still in-utero, or in the early years when we’re trying to understand what the world is all about.
Because our brain is busy forming neural pathways during early life, we’re very easily influenced by those around us. We can absorb the emotional beliefs, traumas, stressors and fears of others and take them on as our own.
In a Kinesiology session, you’re not being “fixed”!
Instead, we work with something you want to change – a health issue, physical pain, a current trauma, anxiety, depression, etc.
And we ask the body…what’s going on? Why is this happening? What’s going on underneath the surface?
Using muscle testing (asking your body for the truth), we then identify and bring to the light of the conscious mind whatever is keeping your current issue in play.
Often, these stories are things your conscious mind doesn’t consider important
As a survival mechanism, we have the ability to downplay our emotional responses to challenging life experiences.
Perhaps you didn’t feel safe, or you were told it wasn’t okay to be sad or angry. You might’ve been told to keep a secret, or your family might’ve had a culture of not talking about things.
As a child I was told I was clumsy and lacked coordination. In the water (I was an amazing swimmer!), that wasn’t the case. But on land… well, it was a family joke – Amanda couldn’t catch a ball and would trip over her own feet.
How do you think that impacted my self-belief?!
It’s natural for us to believe what others say about us
We’re influenced by the world around us. So that belief about me being clumsy? Was deeply embedded at an early age.
Unsurprisingly, I broke several bones over the years. Fell over a lot. It all added to the “evidence” that I was definitely clumsy!
I distinctly remember being in high school in a Physical Education class. We were meant to be practicing short sprints on the bitumen driveway! I started running, and for absolutely no reason I fell over and grazed my knee.
That was NOT a good day and it certainly contributed to the belief that yep, I was too clumsy for words.
Years later I trained in martial arts and one day, a friend was throwing keys to me from a first level balcony so I could open the garage.
I watched my friend throw the keys in slow motion, fully expecting I’d miss the catch. But instead, I caught them one-handed.
Such a simple thing, but for me it was HUGE.
I hadn’t realised until that point how much I’d believed the clumsy story. And how that’d affected my self-esteem.
Unwinding that belief was very powerful.
Now that’s a fairly harmless story, but what about more toxic ones?
Your inner stories of self-loathing and self-rejection can contribute to ill-health, sabotage programs and a lot of sub-conscious stress.
You may have beliefs around rejection, abandonment, feeling unworthy of love and affection and so on.
BUT! Here’s the thing – these stories like a splinter stuck in your skin. They cause irritation, and long term because they’re out of alignment with the truth, they can cause chronic health problems.
The more stressors you hold, and beliefs that we don’t belong, aren’t worthy, and don’t really want to be here… the more our body responds in kind.
Remember – as long as I believed I was clumsy, I WAS clumsy. Once I gained awareness that it wasn’t necessarily true, I wasn’t clumsy any more.
Which is why I like to refer to healing as a path of self-knowledge
The more we can understand what we’ve chosen to believe, hold on to and absorb… the more we learn about ourselves.
Each time we see, feel, and release these stories, it’s like shedding a heavy bag we didn’t even know we were carrying. As such we regain more of our vital energy, and feel better and lighter.
It’s no surprise that our health improves as a result!
Because… you’re not fixing yourself, you’re learning about yourself!
