Healing Initiation

9035611D-0208-4DC9-8858-5726FED8AC8E

About a year ago someone I respected told me that no one would come to me for healing because of my health, even though I have 25 years of training and experience in the field.

I let that distract me. I let it stop me. It made my question my ability.

The TRUTH is, I have been initiated, on a deep level, into Heart Medicine and the art of self healing and survived. Not many people can say that!

I AM the person you would want to work with if you want to learn how to heal yourself of anything or if you want to know how to have a healthy heart. You would be learning from an expert!

In many shamanic traditions the shaman becomes a healer through their own life threatening illness and surviving. It is said that they carry the healing medicine because of that experience. The community seeks out those people when they need healing.

I have a sacred responsibility to share what I have learned.

Teaching Creative Self Healing is my mission.

I have poured a great deal of my healing medicine into three of my books, Empowered Health and Wellness, Resilient Heart and Resilient Heart Art. Anyone who reads any one of these books will gain a ton of wisdom about healing, not just in knowledge but understanding the personal experience of surviving such an experience and how to do it yourself. www.mystickcreekpublishing.com

I am not distracted any more. I don’t believe the BS that no one would want to work with me because of my heart issues. If you want to learn about healing yourself, from someone who knows it intimately, You will want to reach out to me. ❤️

A New Path Emerges out of Transformation Addiction

metamorphosis1

Painting by Katelyn Mariah, Oil and Egg Tempera on panel. Ibiza, Spain 2015

“One of the most enduring metaphors for the spiritual path is the transformation of the lowly caterpillar into a butterfly.  Out of its own substance, the ground-hugging grub weaves the medium for its metamorphosis—the chrysalis within which it evolves into a beautiful creature with wings.  The human being undergoes an equally dramatic transformation, unfolding the path to liberation from within the depths of the soul and emerging, after great struggle, as an expression of divinity in the world.”

I say none of this from a place of judgment but from an understanding that it was all necessary…

I have been on a path of transformation and self-healing for 30 years.  It began with a near death experience that opened me up to wanting to know who I really was and why I am on the planet, so for me to say that path has ended is a big deal!  I woke up one morning and realized I have had enough transformation and self-healing, I am done. If what we focus on is what we create, I had become expert at creating opportunities to transform and heal. It no longer felt loving to continue to dissect my psyche.  Transformation had become an addiction and going through it and coming out on the other side transformed was exhilarating. I realized that by the very nature of focusing on this path I was manifesting all kinds of experiences where I could go through the process of transformation.  After all what we focus on becomes our reality.  

The word “transformation” became popular in the 1960’s and 1970’s and became trendy in the 1980’s and 1990’s.  The word meant a spiritual awakening, though it’s deeper meaning would only become known through experience. Ultimately the spiritual path is never pleasant or comfortable.  You are literally breaking down the social programming and resultant beliefs and behaviors by diving into the psyche and seeing the truth.  Often times the truth is not easy to look at.  There were many times where a transformational event was set off that left me in pain for days while I searched for the way back to equilibrium. The process of transformation is often messy and painful.  I imagine it is a lot like how the caterpillar feels as it turns into goop.

Transformation is a taking apart process, to discover the true self so you can live an authentic life.  It is a necessary process on this planet because of all the programming we have layered on our true self through the socialization process.  Don’t get me wrong when I say I am done.  I am not saying it is a bad thing to transform and heal.  I am saying it can become addictive, sending us leaping from transformational event to transformational event. leaving us feeling like there is always more to discover and change. We are constantly “working on ourselves” and that is not fun.  When this happens we are often saying to the Universe, “I am not good enough the way I am, I need to fix that.”  The addiction to transformation can be unloving and unkind.  Very few of us love ourselves through the process.

If you begin to understand what you are without trying to change it, then what you are undergoes a transformation. ― Jiddu Krishnamurti

If you are constantly diving deeply, being self reflective and trying to fix things in yourself it is exhausting.  It is also hard on your body, mind and spirit because you are lowering your vibration and raising it all of the time. 

The thing that lead me to the place of saying “I am done, I have had enough” was yet another, big, painful opportunity to heal my body.  I have learned a lot about myself through issues with my body.  I am not chronically ill, in fact I am very healthy but I have manifested some heavy duty issues with my body.  Using the healing and transformation process in my book  Empowered Health and Wellness: Awakening Your Inner Physician I was able to discover what my body/soul was trying to tell me.  It was actually in the discovery process that I realized I was done!  I wasn’t thrilled that I needed to do another process of healing an issue with my body.  The metaphor that arose through the process was that of metamorphosis.  It was the perfect metaphor to lead me to understand that I was done with this cycle of learning and I could close the door on the path of healing and transformation.  Out of my process rose the butterfly of love and compassion and the beginning of my new path.

“When the ego says, “I can’t do this any more: this way is not working and I am done,” the soul says ‘Good. You’ve gotten everything you could out of this level of awareness and now we are going to take what you have learned and transform it into something bigger than you ever imagined it could be while you were going through it.”

“Being done” can not be planned.  You can’t pick a date and say that is the day I will have enough.  Just like you can’t pull the caterpillar out of it’s chrysalis and find a butterfly, you can only be done, when you are done!  You will feel it in your bones.

It happened for me on November 5th, 2015.  I picked up my journal and wrote: “I am officially resigning as poster child for self-healing and transformation!  I have mastered the process of healing and transforming and I no longer have to hone that skill.  I trust my body to re-balance itself whenever it is out of balance.  I am no longer having self-healing and transformation as my focus and I am choosing the path of LOVE.”   My divine inner genius responded: “We are so pleased at this outcome.  In loving yourself, know that your path is right and perfect at all times and that there are no mistakes.  All events up to this point have been to get you here.”

Yes, those of us who have been doing our spiritual work for year, we have processed enough. We have gone down enough rabbit holes. We can learn and grow and evolve just as easy through love and joy and it is way more fun. We don’t have to dissect our psyche any longer. I am being called to live an authentic life from a place of love and compassion. Continuing to transform myself no longer feels like self love to me.

I know who I am, I don’t think there is a stone left to turn over.  I have faced all of my dragons and met all of my demons and mined a lot of gems and diamonds in the process. I love the person I have discovered, which is the person I always was but just couldn’t see.

Now what? I have no clue but honestly it feels fabulous. Authenticity, following my heart and love feels good for starters. (This is not to say these things haven’t been part of my path already ) 

I am still left with the work of healing the current physical issue but now that I have learned what I needed to learn from it, it is only a matter of time before my body catches up and returns to balance.

I Got Bad News From the Doctor the Other Day…

innerphysician

Before I tell you my story I want to share with you something I wrote last fall about what happens when the doctor gives you bad news.

Let’s play with this consciousness for a moment. Here is a scenario from a doctor’s visit where someone finds out they are very sick.

The doctor comes into the room and says, “I am sorry to have to tell you this but you have_______”

The blank can be any number of diseases or afflictions that are serious and/or life threatening.  The first thing the patient says to themselves is “Oh God, I have______!”

That becomes the story they tell to everyone.  They announce it on Facebook and tell all of their friends.  What happens?  The moment we give our agreement to a belief, we bring it to life and now we have other people bringing it to life too!  It is easy to predict what is going to happen.

What if the doctor came into the examination room and said something like, “We have some challenges ahead of us, but I am confident that if we all work together, they can be overcome. I will work with you, your family and your Inner Physician to find the right resources to get beyond these challenges.”  Think of the seed the doctor is planting through that statement and imagine what would happen.

When I wrote this I was just putting it out there as an idea.

The other day it happened to me…

I know this is going to be a bit annoying but I am not going to say what the doctor told me because I don’t want to put any extra energy toward it.  I will just say that it was not something I was happy to hear.  What I would like is rather then trying to figure out or wonder what is wrong with me just send me healing energy in what ever form that takes for you.

So,I had an exam and x-rays and told me a tiny piece of what she was seeing.  She also said she didn’t know if she would accept my case until she went through the exam findings.

I felt so well on the way to the doctor that I was wondering why I was even going.  When I left I was in pain all over my body!  That is the power of the medical story. Each of us has a story we attach to the top diseases and disorders when we hear them.  I had a story that I attached with this diagnosis.

I found it interesting that I went through a process that started with feeling defeated and broken, to angry about what was happening, to empowered, which happened today.

Last night when I went to bed I thought “how am I going to go to her office, listen to her findings and not let them land in my psyche?  I know from my experience of self healing and working with my Inner Physician, that the less information I had the better.

I woke up with a stroke of brilliance in my mind.  The way around getting hook in the story was to not hear the story at all!!!

This set off another chain of events because I have never had support from a doctor when I have shared my not so common ideas about healing. I have even had doctors laugh.  So I was nervous about doing it now but I knew I had to. I couldn’t hear the story because it would get crystalized in my psyche and slow down my healing or maybe even stop it entirely.

I arrived at the doctors office and was put in the office where the findings would be reveal to me.  The receptionist turn on a video that I was suppose to watch.  I didn’t want to watch a video I just wanted to get on with it.  I knew what I was going to say and just wanted to say it.

After about 20 minutes the doctor came in carrying my report and my x-rays under her arm.  We greeted each other and then I said ” I have a request”.  She said “sure, what is it?”  I said ” This might be out of the norm but I don’t want to hear your findings.  It is not that I don’t care or that I don’t think it is important, but I know how the mind works and I don’t want to get hung up on the details.  All I want to know is can we work together and will it help.”  She grabbed my hand and told me she understood completely.  She told me that she would work with me in the way that was best for me.

I talked with her about how I feel that when a doctor tells a patient what they have found out from their exam, especially if it is bad new that becomes their story.  I talked about how I felt that once the story was planted it interfered with the healing process.  I told her that everything doctors ever told me that were supposed to be permanent and incurable, no longer existed in my body. I also said that I believe what is happening is just information for me to evolve spiritually and that when I understand the message the issue will resolve.   I said ” You are the expert on the structures of the body and I am the expert on my body and how my inner physician works.”  She agreed.

We went through the whole interview without her giving me any more information about what was going on.  A couple times during the 30 or so minutes we both had tears in our eyes.

I gave her a few examples of how I had healed myself.  She said “This is music to my ears, when a client comes in using words like “I am very in touch with my body” or “I know how to get back in to alignment, I know this is someone who is going to make amazing progress and of course I want to work with you.”

This was the most empowering and healing experience I have ever had with a doctor.  I know I am in the right hands to reverse what is going on in my body and bring it back into balance and harmony!

I will be writing about this journey along the way and only when I am healed will I talk about what the issue is…sorry…I have to do it that way.

Awakening the Inner Physician: Dead Doctors Left Clues

Vitruvian-Man

I woke up in the middle of the night choking. Out of my grogginess, I realized I was having a full blown panic attack, which made little sense in light of the absolutely exquisite day I had just had. My throat was constricted and filled with mucus that I couldn’t clear.  It was a terrifying 10 minutes of choking and struggling to breath.

I wasn’t sure if I should call 911 for help or wait it out. In the midst of my terror, I said “What is going on here?”  A crystal clear voice in my head said, “Don’t worry. It’s only trauma releasing.” I know that voice, and I knew what it was referring to. A calm started to come over me. Within a few minutes, I was totally calm and breathing normally.

The Inner Physician

The voice that I heard was my Inner Physician, who I have worked with for 15 years in my journey to heal my body. This Inner Physician is a person’s most important resource and greatest asset, and yet we have little knowledge of it. The Inner Physician is not a topic of discussion, so how can the average person know about it?  That is why I feel it is important to start a dialogue.

We have in our consciousness a personal doctor that is an expert on what is happening in our unique body. It is aware of what our body needs to heal itself from any disease, discomfort and illness that we encounter.The Inner Physician is active and engaged in every moment, whether we realize it or not. It keeps all of our systems working smoothly, controls breathing and heart rate, and knows how to maintain homeostasis.  When we consciously work with the Inner Physician, miracles can happen.

Inner Physician” is also known as the “Inner Healer” or “The Doctor Within.” It is a universal archetype that carries our highest and deepest wisdom, as well as our connection to the Source. There is no disease, illness, or physical imbalance which will not respond to the power of the Inner Physician, who is waiting for you to call it into action.

People in touch with the Inner Physician are more likely to accept responsibility for their behavior and are empowered to take charge of their lives. Working in concert with the Inner Physician, you take back your power and gain an ally for life. Your diet might change, you may begin an exercise routine, or seek out alternative forms of medicine because you are listening to its voice.

The intelligence of our Inner Physician is evident by the fact that we can think and pick up a pen or sit at the computer and with our hands, put those thoughts to paper and share them with the world. It is amazing if you think about it. The fact that we can send a thought from the brain, through the body to the legs and feet, so that we can move from place to place is incredible. The fact that we don’t even have to think about it, and our heart beats to pump life giving blood through our veins, and our lungs expand and contract to bring the air we need, is mind boggling. Yet we take all of this for granted, never thinking about it.

This intelligence goes even deeper. We cut our finger and a few days, new cells have closed the wound. After a week or so, you would never know there was a cut in the first place. The same is true of bones. If they break, they heal themselves. Every 5 days, our whole intestinal lining is renewed. Every 11 days, our respiratory lining is replenished. Every 15 days, all our white corpuscles are replaced. Every 120 days, our red corpuscles are replaced.

Every six months, we have a new blood stream. Every 11 months, we have a new cell structure. We get a new set of bones every 2 years. And overall, an entirely new body is recreated every 7 years.

This is pretty amazing, and if true, then all the diseased cells are replaced with healthy cells over time.

Let’s play with this consciousness for a moment. Here is a scenario from a doctor’s visit where someone finds out they are very sick.

The doctor comes into the room and says, “I am sorry to have to tell you this but you have_______”

The blank can be any number of diseases or afflictions that are serious and/or life threatening.  The first thing the patient says to themselves is “Oh God, I have______!”

That becomes the story they tell to everyone.  They announce it on Facebook and tell all of their friends.  What happens?  The moment we give our agreement to a belief, we bring it to life and now we have other people bringing it to life too!  It is easy to predict what is going to happen.

What if the doctor came into the examination room and said something like, “We have some challenges ahead of us, but I am confident that if we all work together, they can be overcome. I will work with you, your family and your Inner Physician to find the right resources to get beyond these challenges.”  Think of the seed the doctor is planting through that statement and imagine what would happen.

Dead Doctors Left Clues

I discovered this concept on my own healing journey, yet the idea of the Inner Physician goes back to the middle-ages and Paracelsus, a Renaissance physician during the 1500’s.  He was part medical doctor, part metaphysician, and part shaman, so it is not surprising that he would take a mind/body/spirit approach to healing.

Paracelsus said, “Nature is the first physician, and man is the second.” He clarified that statement in this way;“By observing nature, the ancient physicians realized that there must be an inner healing principle in living organisms which systematically combats diseases. The defensive processes, curative will and healing capacity of the patient are regulated by a higher authority, which Paracelsus called the “inner physician”. Paracelsus declared that all diseases, except ones which were caused by accidents, have an invisible origin in the inner man. The Inner Physician is part of our consciousness and just as any talent can be promoted or suppressed, so can its activities be encouraged, restricted or even paralyzed.”

This Paracelsus guy was way ahead of his time, and many people thought he was off his rocker! This kind thinking was cutting edge for his time and he angered many physicians with it. Today, it is still cutting edge.

Albert Schweitzer, famed medical missionary, was also onto the idea of the Inner Physician.  He described it this way: “Each patient carries his own doctor inside him.  They come to us not knowing that truth.  We are at our best when we give the doctor who resides within each patient a chance to go to work.”

What a powerful concept that is!  What if every doctor today adopted that philosophy?  It would be wonderful to watch.

Schweitzer believed in the inner healing power and encouraged his fellow physicians to help their patients discover the Inner Physician. If the patient is only seen as “ill,” he is cut off from his inner capacity to heal. He also gives his power away to the doctor. Those who are aware that they have the innate power of the Inner Physician are empowered to work on their own behalf to find the best solution, whether it is allopathic medicine, alternative means of healing, or a combination of things.

The key to discovering this Inner Physician is twofold. First, we must understand that miracles happen all of the time. Second, we must learn to trust ourselves and the ability of our body to return to homeostasis. In partnership with the Inner Physician, you can overcome not only minor ailment, but major illness. You can call it intuition, sixth sense, clairvoyance, prophecy or Divine Intervention. It doesn’t really matter. What matters is that it’s available to each of us, just waiting for us to call upon it.

When I woke up choking and afraid, just as it has done so many times in the past when my body was out of balance, my Inner Physician stepped in like a loving, nurturing friend to calm me and let me know that it was there. It was ready to support me, and tell me that I didn’t have to worry. The Inner Physician is there for all of us, just waiting for us to ask for assistance.

The Business of Holistic Health

Your prayer causes you to focus, and the Law of Attraction causes everything in the Universe that’s in vibrational harmony with your focus to come to you.

Abraham-Hicks, Lincroft, NJ, G-10/15/96

We have with in our bodies an innate ability to heal.  If this is true why are so many people sick?  I have been a fan of the Abraham-Hicks materials for many years and I believe in the Law of Attraction.  This law is not new to us through Abraham-Hicks, it is a law that has been true since the beginning of time, that we are just becoming aware of again.

It is not hocus pocus or New Age fluff that our thoughts create our reality.  We are either sick or healthy depending upon the qualities of our thoughts.  This understanding is stated beautifully in this passage from the children’s book Sara, that is part of the body of work of Abraham-Hicks

You see, your bodies are made up of trillions of cells, each holding the vision of their perfection and of their perfect place in the perfect whole…You see, Sara, every time anyone, even a tiny little cell in your body, asks for something – it is always given. So, when a body is injured, in some way, the cells closest to the injury calculate exactly what they need to regain their balance – and they send out immediate requests. And, instantly, the Energy begins to flow, and all other aspects of the body being to respond, too. Special helping nutrients of all kinds begin making their way through the body, and the natural healing  begins, immediately. And when the person, who lives in this body, is happy or eager, or appreciative – then the healing is allowed. But if that person is sad or angry, or fearful – the healing is hindered or resisted.

Abraham-Hicks information in Sara (Book for children) pgs. 112-113

Our cells not only give signals to the body systems but also to us as they send us information of what they need to return to health.  Often times we miss the signals because we are so busy focused on what is wrong with us.  It becomes a vicious cycle because the more energy and focus you put on an issue the bigger it becomes.

I have experienced painful, physical issues, so I know how difficult it is to take your focus off of what is happening in your body, to putting your focus on a new story that will turn the issue around.  It is challenging to focus on harmony and wholeness when that is not what you are experiencing, but that is the very prescription you need to return to health.

I also believe that issue in our physical body block our ability to be radiant, magnetic and live the life of our dreams.  How can the pain in my shoulder keep me from manifesting a new house or a new job?  When we are in pain we are angry, fearful and frustrated, which are lower vibrational thoughts, and it is impossible to manifest from that vibrational state.  Manifestation occurs out of aligned, grateful, joyful, happy thoughts, which are higher vibrational thoughts.

I believe there is a pathway from the lower vibration thoughts to the higher vibrational thoughts and it is something everyone can do.  I have done it each time I have moved from sickness to harmony and health after an illness.  The pathway is a whole body approach which includes the mind, the body, emotions and spirit. It includes removing toxins and giving your body the proper nutrition so that it can bring itself back into balance.  This may sound complicated and overwhelming to think about shifting your thoughts, feeding your body appropriate nutrition, especially if you feel sick, but it is not if you have someone to guide you.

I feel that I have had the experiences I have had in my life so that I can be a midwife for others who desire a return to health. I have written about my own journey in my upcoming book, “Empowered Health” unleashing the inner physician.

Using what I have learned, I guide people through a whole body experience that will create the pathway back to health and harmony so they can return to their natural state of radiance and magnetism and back to creating a life of your dreams.  If you are ready to transform your life drop me an email or give me a call so we can see if this is right for you.

Be as happy as you want to be in a world gone mad. Be as safe as you want to be in a world that is afraid of everything. Be as healthy as you want to be in a world that is mostly sick. Don’t let the statistics that someone else has created affect you. You get to choose — you are wise enough, smart enough, deliberate enough.

Abraham-Hicks, G 11/24/90
