Last week I wrote about shedding the past and that in order to truly live a life of peace, prosperity and connection - to become masters at manifestation - at some point we must shed the past. Fully.
When I say past I mean other lifetimes, and the ancestral, cultural, karmic, and childhood imprints we absorb. This is why I LOVE energy healing, specifically shamanic energy healing.
This week I share about healing the past. Shamanic energy healing is a highly effective way of making the unconscious conscious --and healing deeply rooted trauma that we cannot always get to in talk therapy. When I speak of trauma I am speaking of things we have experienced in this lifetime and also imprints/patterns that have been passed down from one generation to the next. These imprints can be addiction, abuse, poverty, anger, fear...etc.
In order for us to access who we are and bring forth our unique gifts, we must BOTH shed and heal. Shedding leaves space, a clearing if you will. Healing brings about harmony with the energy of what was "shed". Meaning, if we experience abuse of any kind or absorb imprints that have been passed down through generations/ancestors, this energy gets stored in our body. Whoever we absorbed this energy from-- this relationship needs to get healed. The energy of anger/hate/bitterness binds energetically to someone as much as love does. Think about that. This is one reason we practice forgiveness. Peace doesn't come with hate. The two can't co-exist.
As we shed the energy, and heal the relationship (there are many ways to do this in shamanic energy healing - even if the person is on the other side) we are ready to fill the "space".
What do we fill the space with? Positive. life affirming energy and beliefs in order to create the life we desire.
One of the reasons I am drawn to shamanic work is the extraordinary transformation I have witnessed in my own life and the lives of countless others when we focus on healing as well as releasing the harmful imprints (ancestral/karmic, etc). There is a ripple effect that happens as well. As we heal individually -- healing also happens for those who are or have been connected to these harmful imprints. It's so beautiful.
In our Western mindset, which values the complex and material over the energetic, I understand how some of these concepts can seem odd. I actually find this work simple, logical, in harmony with nature and as such - powerful.
As we open our individual hearts and minds to healing harmful imprints, we also impact the collective. How cool is that!
We have the power to shift the world to peace.

In my experience, in order to truly live a life of peace, prosperity and connection - to become masters at manifestation - at some point we must shed the past. Fully.

When approached with an open mind, shamanic energy healing is a highly effective way of making the unconscious conscious --and healing deeply rooted trauma that we cannot always get to in talk therapy. When I say trauma it can be anything from abuse to limiting beliefs such as, "I am not good enough/I am not worthy".
All of us operate from beliefs that we absorbed somewhere along the way. Our beliefs filter everything and create our thoughts, words, deeds...our life. Powerful stuff!
When we aren't getting what we want in life, it's usually because of a self limiting belief. Whatever trauma we experienced / inherited / absorbed feeds the belief...until we recognize the belief, clear the energy, and create a new belief.
I get it that some people don't understand "how" energy healing works. That was me a few decades ago. Not anymore!
On some level, all of us "know" we are energy beings. We enter a room and feel a vibe without a word being exchanged. That is energy! We know this. We experience it everyday.
For some, the desire to see everything as concrete blinds us from truly seeing what is underneath...in the energetic. As a result, we don't get to the root of the trauma, and we spin. Or worse, we spend many decades and dollars on going through the same loop trying to "talk" it out. I have been there.
Shamanic energy healing sessions allow us to shed the past and create a new future in the present! Specifically, shamanic energy healing includes tools such as journeying to meet a power animal/spirit guide, energetic extractions, and soul retrieval to restore us to our true essence. Since we are all part of the energetic web, removing and healing unwanted energies restores our strength. As we shed the past, we remove the energetic layers that block us from creating the life we desire.
With on-going sessions, we learn how to align our conscious mind (thinking mind) with our subconscious mind (emotional mind - where beliefs are stored). This is when it gets really fun as we learn how to become masters at manifestation.
You're worth it!

When approached with an open mind, energy healing is a highly effective way of making the unconscious conscious --and healing deeply rooted trauma that we cannot always get to in talk therapy.
Energy healing sessions allow us to target the root cause of anxiety and panic attacks, heal wounds that we are not consciously aware of, and release core beliefs and experiences stored in the body or the subconscious mind (feeling mind). The techniques used during an energy healing session are designed to switch the nervous system out of “fight –flight-freeze” mode into a state of deep relaxation, allowing for both short-term and long-term relief of stress and anxiety.
In addition, what we learn during a session can help us re-align our conscious mind (thinking mind) toward what we want to create in our life. Isn't that why we are here?!
Since life is always changing, the ability to use practices that bring us back into harmony with our-self and the world around us is not only effective, it is healing in itself.
Energy healing sessions are great for those who are ready to clear blocks, negativity, and /trauma in order to embrace life with presence -- in a positive, loving, peaceful, and empowering way.

"Transformation is through the body, not away from it. This is why no true master has ever advocating fighting or leaving the body, although their mind-based followers often have." -Eckhart Tolle
Previously I have written about the difference between knowledge and knowing. I shared my experience with Eckhart Tolle and how the only true way to "know" something, is to experience it.
What are you noticing...knowing?
This week I encourage you to become curious about what and how your physical body is trying to communicate with you.
Our physical body is a portal to what is really happening deep within. By deep within I mean beyond the mind and it's thoughts/story/narrative.
For example, ever notice how physical pain causes us to "do" something when it no longer becomes tolerable?
The moment we feel "we have had enough of feeling sick/tired/achy/lonely" (i.e.: suffering) we can decide it's time to make a change. Time for transformation!!!
Perhaps we decide to become conscious of our food habits and choose to eat better.
Or, maybe it's time to lace up those sneakers and exercise.
For some it's time to ease up on the physical body and get a massage or finally try yoga, etc.
And still for others there's a sense of the inner body that feels "off". Anxious, afraid, alone...endless cycle of emotional up and down.
Why does connecting with the body matter?
From a practical sense, we need it in order to live so why not take care of it the best we can?
On a deeper level, the physical body is a powerful doorway to access wisdom and therefore transformation. Can't change what you don't know/want to know :)
While some wisdom traditions may teach denying the body and/or ignoring the body, in my experience, it is the exact opposite. We must pay attention, listen, and learn. Then we apply those lessons in the form of action.
How do we access the physical body, in a deeper sense?
One thread runs through all of it and that is the practice of presence...awareness. A.K.A - paying attention.
Some of us pay attention quite naturally and either choose to take action or not. Doing nothing is also a choice :)
Others of us engage in movement practices - yoga/running/walking outside/dance... to help us get in touch/feel the inner body.
And still others rely on meditation, massage, or other forms of energy healingto assist in bring us into deeper awareness.
There's no right or wrong way.
And the "way" may change over time as you change. Nothing is permanent in this world of form. Ha!
As I say-- the only "wrong" way to meditate is simply to not do it all.
And so it is with life and dealing with change. We will either consciously choose to listen to our body or not. Regardless, life / transformation happens anyway. We can embrace it (peaceful path) or fight it (suffering path).
I don't know about you. I rather the peaceful path.
