Rules To Heal

This is a pet peeve of mine.  There are far too many individuals and organizations out there that have far too many rules to heal.  They come up with certifications and then rules about those certifications.  After that, they layer and layer more rules and procedures.

Unfortunately the healing part of their work gets buried in mounds of politics and rules and ways to make money.  It gets shut outside the door with the originators being all high and mighty that they have all the answers.

At one time, I was going through a certification program which was quite expensive and very time consuming.  I like the basics of the work, but the politics and personal mindsets that you had to endure was astounding.  You had to do things the way they said or you were not "good enough".  They didn't have to walk the talk, but you sure did as you were going through the certification process.

I just saw another case where the individual seems to be far more interested in how much money he will get from someone taking the class again, then he is with how much people might be helped and healed.  Granted the individual has some great information on food and healing, but when you think that your schedule for certification is what matters, you've lost site of the higher truth.

Healing doesn't need rules and politics.  Healing doesn't need rules that are dictated to you by other humans with egos the size of the solar system.  Healing is more than rules that are nothing other than your beliefs.

Healing is something the entire planet needs.  We should be working together and advancing this, rather than sitting back and counting the dollar bills in our pockets.  Healing is more than control.  It is more than one person's timetable and view of what it should be.

I know, I'm preaching to the choir on this one, but it really is my pet peeve.  I see people suffering and to think that legally you cannot help them because you're not certified is beyond loony to me!  I know that's harsh, but it is reality and the cold hard truth.

Traumatized by Cold Hands

I'm once again reminded of one of the reasons I no longer live in the northern half of the country.  It is too cold.  Well, it isn't so much the cold because I can take a little of it.  It is the cold hands.

Every since I can remember, my hands got cold.  It didn't matter if I had layers of clothes on and warm gloves, my hands were cold.  It didn't matter if I had the warmest mittens on, they got cold.  It could be 70 degrees in a room and my hands would be cold.

As far back as I can remember, I would get kicked, hit, and ridiculed, because my hands would get cold.  I couldn't help it.  They just did. 

Time and time again, I was told to shut up and grow up.  I was told not to cry.  Big boys don't cry is what I was told. I was so traumatized by it, that it still haunts me today. 

You would have thought allowing me to have 5 minutes to go inside and warm up would not have been asking for too much.  Apparently, it was.

Imagine your hands hurting from being cold or being so stiff they didn't want to move.  Imagine someone telling you that you were a cry baby or just complaining and whining.  Imagine being threatened with physical punishment and seeing that threat followed through.

Being traumatized by cold hands is not fun.  I do not enjoy the colder weather at all and for those that do, more power to you.  However, I didn't like to be made fun of and bullied by my father because my hands were naturally cold.

For me, I prefer the warmer weather.  Cold weather isn't my desire anymore and most of the time, it makes me want to hide and withdraw.  Most don't fully understand this, but it can be a very traumatizing moment for me.

Writing Heals Trauma

Writing exercises are one of the ways that I have helped heal trauma that I've been through in my life.  In this blog post on Somatosync.com, I have shared a way that has been taught to me to help deal with stuck energy that is in our body from the trauma, abuse, or painful experiences.

There are undoubtedly many ways to help heal from trauma, but writing has helped me.  It can  be very powerful and effective.  Sometimes all we need is a little nudge to move beyond that which is holding us back.

Supported In Difficult Moments

Even in the midst of trying difficulties, it is sometimes helpful to remember the simplest things.  Sitting out in the park on this cool day, I observed the birds playing near the water.  They were gliding across the water with ever so gentle and graceful movement.

As they were gliding across the water, their wings were outstretched and they hovered just a few inches above the little pond.  It was almost like the air was carrying them over the water.  It was like the air and the water were giving them what they needed.  They just needed to glide.

Today reminded me that even in those difficult moments, sometimes all we need to do is glide.  Sometimes we just need to be in that moment, letting the air and water and all sustenance around us carry us through.  Maybe we do not need to do anything else, other than feel supported.

Feeling supported in difficult moments is by far one of the best things that we can experience.  To have no support, leaves us helpless and alone.  To have support in difficult moments gives us strength to make it another day.

Source Of Worry and Contentment

Being content is essential for finding your way forward in life.  When you worry, you disconnect yourself from the source.  Worry takes you out of the flow.  It lowers your energetic vibration and brings you down into the vibration level of lack and not having enough.

Do not only focus on worry in your life.  While it is important not to worry, you must heal yourself from the core.  Uncovering the source of worry will then allow you through consciousness to choose a different course of action in your life.  Going to the root of the issue, allows you to remove the power source.  It is when you do this, that your energetic vibration will increase.

Being content in life is a surrender into who you are as an individual.  It is allowing yourself to touch your own soul, rather than engaging your ego.  Your ego loves worry and misery, but your soul loves contentment and peace.  Your mind only engages that which you feed it.

It is all up to you to choose what you will do or the changes you will make in your life.  It becomes a journey within, discovering all of who you are, not what you have been in the past.  Being content gives you the option of seeing possibility in life and empowering greatness.

Allow possibility to build and flow from within your core existence.  As you connect within, so too will you find an unstoppable power for your life.
