I’ve never met a person who doesn’t want to change something in their life. There are so many people who are looking for something greater in their lives and they want change sooner rather than later. In our early experiences, we thought that by changing everything around us it would result in our lives being better. We changed everything we had. Didn’t like the people we hung out with so we changed our friends. Hated our jobs so we got a new one. Bought a new car, new clothes, even moved to a better neighborhood. We changed everything around around us except the one thing that mattered most… ourselves. While there’s nothing wrong with changing our exterior world, it’s the interior world that creates the largest impact.

Looking In The Mirror

No one likes to look at themselves when it comes to change. It’s one of the hardest things to do. You see all the ugliest parts of yourself, maybe what you’ve done to other people, and how it’s impacted everything in your world. Not only do you have to look at it but you have to then acknowledge it. Who wants to do that? Who wants to see the darkest side of themselves, the shadow side we all desperately try to hide from everyone? No one. It’s so scary and challenging that most people will give up and say something like, “That’s just the way I am.” No they’re not. They’re actually so much more but they’ve been programmed into being a certain way by life’s experiences. Statements like that are a way to justify being a certain way so people won’t have to look at themselves. However, looking outside without ever looking within, creates more of the same results. A quote I heard years ago said,

“If you want things in your life to change, you have to change things in your life. If you continue to do what you’ve always done, you’ll continue to get what you always got.” 

It was that quote (2 separate quotes actually) that got me thinking about changing myself. What I came to learn later in my spiritual journey, is that change really meant healing and that it wasn’t enough just to change but to heal. Creating a healing created a more lasting and often permanent change.

Heal Thyself

The biggest challenge in doing healing work on yourself is starting. Especially in the beginning, everything seems daunting. We’re so afraid of what we might see and that’s what usually stops people. So many questions pop up like, “What will happen if I heal this? What will I lose or gain?” When it comes healing, it’s important to look at all our beliefs and fears. Throughout the healing process, things will naturally fall away and others will come in as the Universe well give us what we need. We attract everything in our lives based on our current belief system, not just our thoughts. We have to take responsibility for everything in our lives because we’re responsible for it. We’ve created it. When we begin to heal ourselves, things will naturally change. We no longer need them for any additional lessons or teachings.  It may look like things may be falling apart needlessly, but they’re actually falling in place. There’s no need to be afraid of it. It just takes some getting used to.

Healing Is A Journey

When we make the choice to heal, we choose to heal on a deep level rather than look at surface changes. In ThetaHealing®, we look at the subconscious beliefs that are keeping you in your current state. Healing at the subconscious level will create a true change and transform your life and how you look at it. Each of us have the ability to heal. We are all healers in our own right, whether we see it or not. There are many different paths to healing and each person’s path will look different, as we all deal with things in our own way. Healing also takes time. So many beliefs have been compounded over the years so it may take some time to remove them. For starters, I recommend that you don’t do this alone. Find a teacher or someone who can help you in your journey. Be open to any tools that come your way. There are many great spiritual and energy tools in addition to ThetaHealing®. Also, you may have multiple teachers in your journey. That’s perfectly fine. It took me years before I found ThetaHealing®. I went through a number of people and experiences, introductions and meditations before it showed up in my life and when it did, I was ready for it. If it doesn’t come right away, that’s fine. Everything happens right when it’s supposed to. Just be open to it and you’ll receive it.

Healing is a journey. There’s no right path for anyone. It’s lots of experiences, lots of experimenting. One great thing that opens up as you begin to heal is your intuition. Once you have access to that, you’ll know where to go by feeling it out. Happy healing!
