Heal Yourself to Heal Your World

“Before you can help make the world right,

you must be made right within.”        John Miller

earth-global-globe-87651It is very easy to compile a lengthly list of what is wrong in the world. Society has traditionally tried to address those wrongs through a top down approach of rules and regulations, and the legal and judicial system. While a deterrent, such measures cannot stop bad behavior. People will find a way around them. Furthermore, a top down approach makes you dependent upon others to write and execute the laws and enforce them. If those people are themselves corrupt, new laws, new systems, will not change underlying evil and abuses. This can make you feel hopeless and powerless.

“Whatever is right or wrong in our world is exactly what is right or wrong in the individual human heart.” —Margaret Leckie

What if you considered that the world, filled as it is with people just like us, was simply a reflection of our own issues and what was unhealed within ourselves? Is it not then conceivable that in taking the responsibility to heal ourselves of any resonating trait or emotion that such healing would become a ripple in the pond influencing those around us, motivating and enabling them to evolve as well?

This is something that each of us can do—overcome our own issues, inspire, mentor, and teach others how to do it, until it becomes the ‘100th Monkey Effect’. Or to paraphrase Gandhi, we can individually

Be the change, we want to see in the world.

Physicist, Tom Campbell, agrees. He says that simply replacing the leaders or the system, will not result in real, long-term improvement unless the consciousness of the populace changes. One dictator or set of crooks will be replaced by others until the population no longer supports them. Campbell says that

Unless WE change, real, permanent change will not happen. But as we grow and evolve in consciousness, our leaders and systems will reflect that.

Yet, history has also demonstrated that a single individual is not powerless. One person can make a difference. And that person doesn’t have to be a guru, a charismatic leader, or a motivational speaker. Ordinary people such as Rosa Parkes made a difference. There are people out of the limelight quietly doing simple things like planting trees, cleaning up debris, that over time make an impact upon their communities. There are Transcendental Meditators that have significantly reduced the crime rate or political tensions in certain areas. 

Again, Campbell says that the thoughts, emotions, and consciousness of each individual are felt by the whole. As each person evolves, he makes easier for the next to do so.

Ho’oponopono

One man, Clinical Psychologist, Dr Ihaleakala Hew Len had such a profound healing effect upon his patients at the Hawaii State Hospital for the criminally insane that it was closed in just a few years. Previously that ward had been a very dangerous place with high staff absenteeism and turnover.

“After a few months of Dr Hew Len being there, patients who had been shackled started being allowed to walk freely; others who’d been heavily medicated, started getting their medications reduced; and those who had been seen as having no chance of ever being released, were being released and freed.” 

Dr. Len did this solely through the practice of Ho’oponopono. In studying the inmate files, he would work on healing himself by repeating a mantra over and over –

“I’m sorry, Please forgive me, I love you, Thank you.”

In saying his mantra, Dr. Len was taking responsibility for what was showing up in his life, which were his patients. He considered it his creation and therefore, his responsibility do something about although it was not his fault. Taking responsibility means to heal yourself in order to heal whatever or whoever it is that appears to you as a problem. 

Physician, heal thyself!” (ancient Greek proverb)

Ho’oponopono recognizes that we are all part of one consciousness system. Consequently, our actions, reactions, and very our consciousness effect the system even as we are effected by it. 

“No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.

John Donne, Meditation XVII, English clergyman & poet (1572 – 1631)

Ho’oponopono is related to the principle of Quantum Entanglement. While Quantum Entanglement is a theory from physics that explains the effect that one particle can have on another even though separated by huge distances, the psychological implications are that individuals have a very real effect on one another. Your thoughts and feelings not only guide your action but also effect others. 

The bad news is that my funky mood, anger or resentment, even if never expressed, can have a negative effect, like agitation or depression, upon you, which can cycle back onto me. Therefore, I not only have a responsibility to clean up my mess, but it is in my best interests to do so.

“What goes around, comes around.”

The good news is in healing myself, I not only feel better, but I am setting up a conductive environment for others to heal as well, who in turn help even more people to do the same. These ever enlarging ripples in the pond make a big difference. And all of us reap the benefits!

Whether you agree with Hew Len’s underlying premise, you cannot argue with his results. If one man can be heal the criminally insane, what can each of us do with addressing those issues and wrongdoings that upset us? The caveat is that to make a real dent you have to be relentless about constantly clearing any issue until the situation changes. Len says that it is a lifetime process. Like an onion, things come off in layers.

Former hypnosis colleague Doreen Virtue taught me years ago as a way of healing and releasing blame and negative judgment, 

“I recognize and forgive in myself what irritates me about you!”

Rather than immediately assigning blame of who is wrong and needs to be punished, consider that what you judge may also reflect a quality inside yourself. However, getting angry, irritated, upset or triggered is helpful in revealing your Shadow Self – that part of the psyche that denies and hides away of your own unacceptable thoughts, emotions, and behavioral impulses. explained at length by psychiatrist, Dr. Carl Gustav Jung and author Debbie Ford. 

The ego avoids self loathing by denying the existence of it’s own faults by projecting them onto others. This process of denial and projection tends to attract people who reflect these same faults. In other words, if you deny your anger, angry people show up in your life. It is the soul’s attempt to get you to look at yourself and then heal. As you admit and forgive yourself for your own shortcomings, you will have greater tolerance of others, and instead attract others who have likewise worked on healing their own issues.

What is denied cannot be healed. Therefore, unsavory people, conditions or events in our lives serve a useful purpose in calling us to recognize and heal those resonating elements within ourselves. Instead of condemning your adversary, thank them for bringing your own baggage to your attention to now process.

How you can use your upset to heal?

Identify the trait or issue or behavior that you dislike or upsets you. Look inside honestly to see if you have ever exhibited that trait, acted that way or wanted to, even in a minuscule way, maybe years ago. If so, accept and forgive yourself anyway. This is profoundly healing, and stops the repetition of more of the same type of unpleasant experiences.

And then because you may not know or remember if you are ever did something similar, do the Emotional Freedom Technique on a ‘can’t hurt basis:

“Even though I don’t know if  I have ever ____ (felt/done/wanted to)  ___, I deeply love and accept myself.”

“Even though I don’t know if there is anything in me that attracted or contributed to this condition/situation,  I deeply love and accept myself.”

“Even though I don’t know what is within me that resonates with this condition/situation,  I deeply love and accept myself.”

“Even though I don’t know what needs to heal within me that reflects this condition/situation,  I deeply love and accept myself.”

Perhaps in another lifetime you acted in a despicable way, and while you have since matured, you may never have forgiven yourself. Or perhaps, the old data file for that nasty behavior still lingers in the recesses of your being waiting for a trigger to reactivate it. Hence, having a mirror image of your former self may show up in your life to get you to recognize your common humanity and forgive yourself now. Dowse on it.

How can dowsing help?

Dowsing is profoundly powerful in identifying issues, the origin, and reasons behind them. It can be used to focus intention to clear mental and emotional issues, and to calibrate completion. And it can identify possible action to take in the physical world. How to do this will be presented below:

UPCOMING SEMINAR/ WORKSHOP:

I am going to be doing a preliminary talk at the Central Virginia Dowsers Meeting in Charlottesville on Sunday, April 14, and then going more into depth on how to use dowsing for this process at the American Society of Dowsers Convention being held at Plymouth State University, Plymouth, New Hampshire, June 26-30.

RESOURCES: You can use dowsing instead of muscle testing with Dr. Bradley Nelson’s book, the Emotion Code. You can dowse with the Infinite Intelligence Process, as outlined in my book, Accessing More—Tapping Into the Wisdom Within With the Infinite Intelligence Process, and you can use the many charts and checklist in my pendulum dowsing manual, Therapeutic Dowsing and Telepathic Healing).

The Infinite Intelligence Process

20170516_AccessingMoreCover

For the past several years, I have been teaching others how to tap into the wisdom within both to solve problems with ease and grace, and to relieve stress in minutes with a modality that I developed and call The Infinite Intelligence Process. It can be used anytime, anyplace by ordinary persons to help themselves as well as by hypnotherapists and mental health professionals with sometimes profound results. Yet it is easy to both learn and apply through one of my short workshops or even right out of my book, Accessing More–Tapping Into the Wisdom Within with the Infinite Intelligence Process

What is this inner wisdom and how can you access it?

    • Have you ever had the experience of tapping into something More–more than you are aware of knowing or being able to do consciously? 
    • And has this More allowed you the ability to accomplish the difficult with ease and grace? 
    • Did it allow you to succeed even though success was considered unlikely or even impossible? 
    • Was it there just when you needed it? 
    • And did it solve a problem in the most perfect way?

Certainly, I have on multiple occasions, and I have heard the stories of others as well. Whether it is suddenly being able to solve problems that had previously defied solution, having creative breakthroughs, superhuman strength to save the life of another, or responding protocol perfect to a never before encountered emergency, people have amazed themselves and others when they have spontaneously accessed this greater wisdom, intelligence, strength, ability or knowledge. Sometimes it has come as a result of a necessity or out of nowhere during an emergency, and sometimes it has come in quiet moments after working on it for a prolonged period of time through normal conscious means and then letting their mind relax.

For example, I was awakened one morning with noise coming from my master bathroom. I found my five cats surrounding a copperhead snake that had gotten up into the ventilation system from the crawl space and pushed up the floor grate to get into the room. The snake was coiled up ready to attack, and kept rotating its head to watch each of the cats. What could I do? I had to protect my cats, prevent the snake from getting back down the floor grate and having access from the ventilation system to other parts of the house. I had to be sure to get it, dead or alive, completely out of the house without myself or my animals getting hurt. The way I responded turned out to be protocol perfect even though I had never been trained. How did I just naturally do everything right?

Another time, I found myself caught in a rip tide and rapidly pulled out to sea. I tried swimming to shore, but it didn’t work and I quickly got exhausted. I tried yelling and waving my arms for help, but those on shore didn’t notice and couldn’t hear me over the surf. I was getting wiped out with the waves and getting water in my mouth. Again, it seemed that I tapped into that something More to stay calm and focused on what I could do to stay alive.

Like a cat with nine lives, I have had many experiences starting from childhood that could have been dangerous, even fatal. I have also had many overwhelming responsibilities or pressures through which I sailed calmly. I have accomplished some amazing things with ease. You probably have done or know others who have done the same. Just google feats of superhuman strength and you will find many real life examples.

While necessity does motivate us to look deeper for ideas and strength, it certainly does not guarantee being able to do so as so many people blank or numb out, freeze or just panic. The questions for all of us are:

• How do we tap into that greater knowing, wisdom, ability or resources without it having to be an emergency, life or death situation? 

• How can we tune into whatever it is that allows us to handle life with greater ease and grace on a regular basis? 

• How can we routinely tune in and save ourselves a lot of time and energy, worry and frustration, fear and anger on or about upsetting events as well as ordinary everyday things–our job, relationships, daily life and responsibilities?

Some people may automatically jump to religious causation for all beneficial outcomes, and I do not dispute that miracles may occur. But it is my personal opinion that believing that all help comes from outside of us can actually limit the natural flow and development of what may inherently be an inside but undeveloped part of us. Instead, if we can consider that we are MORE than we think we are, we may be able to connect to the More that we truly are. I do not know or need to know where the demarcation ends of what is me at my highest and best and what goes beyond ‘me’.

Accessing More starts by adopting the open minded attitude that it is possible–that you are able to harness greater resources, wisdom and ability that go beyond the limitations of the ego and conscious mind, beyond the subconscious, to the spiritual dimension of the self that is further linked to an even greater consciousness. Start with a positive attitude and set an intention to do so.

Accessing More of both what is within and without is done below the level of conscious awareness. Simply quiet your mind, and go inside to the peaceful part of you, affirm your intention, and allow that inner something to do its work. This approach circumvents the ego, the mind games, circuitous thinking, internal and external blocks, and inhibiting energies that have prevented previous solution to the issue of concern. The process works to solve practical problems, relieve stress, and heal from long-standing issues–even sometimes those that have previously defied resolution. All aspects of your life can be addressed–mental, emotional, relationship, physical, financial, business, and spiritual.

This process can be used anytime, anyplace as a self-help tool by the ordinary person to help himself in real life situations. It can also be used for meditation, constructive self-programming, and in conjunction with other modalities. But hypnotherapists, dowsers, teachers, counselors, life coaches, energy healers, mental health practitioners, and others can also employ it as a full-fledged therapy. It draws upon the principles and practices of hypnosis, Neural Linguistic Programming, dowsing, meditation, prayer and many energy healing methods.

So what exactly is this More?

While it includes your subconscious mind that regulates all of your body functions, automatic behavior, physical, mental and emotional habits, directives and injunctions, beliefs, judgments, and memory, it goes beyond that. I believe that this More is primarily the eternal, infinite intelligence within you that is intrinsically linked to the ultimate consciousness behind all that is. Using this system increases your awareness that you are More than your ego, More than your body and local mind, and More than the individual, spiritual self that people call the soul, to something beyond.

Traditional religious circles say that this More is God, and exists totally outside and apart from the self, and is reachable through prayer, petition, ritual or sacrifice. Unfortunately, all too often prayers beg, whine, or plead in fear without really believing that help will come, or make things worse by focusing on the negative. Consequently, such practices can nullify such help.

Labeling or identifying this More is not important to access the benefits.

In fact, it can get you stuck and mired in mankind’s perpetual argument over philosophical and religious discussions that are, in the final analysis, unprovable and come down to a matter of beliefs. Whether right or wrong, true or false, your beliefs and attitude do make things easier or harder. So adopting a helpful attitude, a curious mind that holds a window of possibility when you desire to solve a problem or achieve a goal is crucial to your success.  

The Infinite Intelligence Process is one way to tap into what I call More.

It helps you to adopt an attitude that will make things easier and flow more readily. It makes a big difference in processing overload and releasing stress, and it does so in a very simple way that you can do anytime, any place. Let me show you how you can quickly and easily tap into that incredible wisdom and resources within you on a regular basis!
