Taking Off Your Mask, A True Healing

face-622904_1280

We think masks are just for parties and some sports, yet, many people wear them everyday. People, unbeknown to them, have been socially conditioned to wear a mask. We’ve been trained to wear a mask to look good in front of people; bosses, love interests, friends, you name it. Of course looking good makes us feel good yet, many are unhappy with their lives. Wearing the mask everyday is exhausting and depressing yet we don’t understand why. If our conditioning has truly taught us anything, it’s that the most important thing is survival. Forget everything about achieving, living your dreams or thriving. Forget reaching for the sky and being your best. It’s not about any of that. We’ve been taught to survive, and what better way to survive than to conform, to blend in, to hide. If our eyes are a window to the soul, a mask is a window to the freak show. Wearing the mask signs us up for the freak show and we are its stars.

“Do they love you or the mask you put on everyday” ~ Shimika Bowers

Wearing a mask was not the norm in the beginning. In Caroline McHugh’s TED talk, she talks about how children are the most authentic up until around the age of 7, which is when they start to truly experience consciousness. They they become self conscious about themselves and notice what others are doing that they can’t do. They then develop labels and label each other, the first masks.

When you watch Caroline’s TED talk, you realize how people take on roles as they grow up. What’s even more interesting is that many people found they don’t have to be themselves. They can just switch masks and be someone else if they want. While the mask certainly helps them cope with the world, it also keeps them miserable. People are very afraid of taking off their masks. They see all their scars, all the pain they’ve endured, all their fears. The mask keeps them safe so they don’t have to look at these things yet, we must if we want something greater. If we truly want to heal, we must be willing to remove the mask once and for all and let go of everything that we’ve held on to for safety.

In order to raise our consciousness level and thrive not just survive, we must heal on a subconscious and cellular DNA level. One of the best ways is to look at the core beliefs that run us. The beliefs in our subconscious have been running us our entire lives and govern our behaviors and thoughts. Many of them have been passed down from our family and ancestors and have a direct effect on our current belief system. Some studies have shown that fears and phobias can be passed on to the next generation. Many of these beliefs have served us a one point in time but may be holding us back now. As our subconscious is designed to keep us safe, it sees everything that isn’t familiar as a threat and we sabotage ourselves to stay safe. This is why core belief work is extremely important.

So where do we start? What do we look at first? There’s no concrete place to start as everything is important to look at. You can start with your fears. Fears about failure, success, relationships, etc. Look at your relationships with people, your resentments and grudges, regrets, rejections. Look at any vows, oaths, or contracts you made in this lifetime or a previous lifetime (if you believe in that) that may have served you then but holds you back now. You can look at past lives and see what’s still serving you now and what lessons you’ve learned from that. There’s a lot to look at and each discovery gets you closer to your authentic self where you get to live your truth.

Once you become the authentic being you were born to be, you can take back your power you’ve given away to the mask. It’s no longer attractive nor is it safe. You can truly live your truth and be genuine. As we raise our consciousness, our inner God begins to awaken and we no longer need our masks. As the world becomes evermore conscious, people will see that wearing a mask is no longer worth it, and the planet’s consciousness will rise. We will truly enter a state of Oneness. Are you ready to take off your mask yet? It’s time to step into your power and live your truth!

 

Heal Yourself First

meditation-609235_1280

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!

2015: The Year Of Living Your Truth

Happy New Year!!

The calendar has turned and a new year has begun. Lots of excitement coming from new goals, resolutions and milestones to achieve. People are looking to manifest and create some amazing things. Big dreams of weight loss, lottery wins, you name it… they’re all coming forward. However, like most years, a small amount will truly achieve anything they’ve set out to at the beginning of the year. A statistic I read last year said that around 8% of people who make new year’s resolutions actually achieve them. That number was a major shock to me. While I know many don’t keep the resolutions I make, 8% is quite baffling. As I began to think about this, I thought back to my experience, particularly last year, and realized how I was in the other 92%.

Last year was a very interesting year for me. Much of the year was spent getting rid of things that no longer served me. From business opportunities, relationships, activities, many things were shed from my life. I even took a major break from music, an activity that I greatly loved. I also got called out by many people on how I was living and looked for help from others as to why certain things weren’t going so well. Some days weren’t pretty as I felt down, like I was doing something wrong. One day, I took a long step back and realized that I had to look at the truth in what I was doing. I got away from what got me started in my passions. I wasn’t being authentic. I had no integrity. I was not being genuine, I wasn’t being heart-centered. I was not living in truth. What really got me started in Theta Healing and music, and everything that truly made me the spark of God I am. Once I made the decision to be that, I was able to reconnect to the love of Theta and music. Over the past month, I’ve had some amazing things happen and they’ve continued into the new year. All because I decided to stand in truth, be honest with myself and live there.

The theme for 2015 is very simple:

Truth! Live it!

In this year, and every year since, we must live our truth. I have a feeling that this year, truth will show up for us in all areas of our lives. It will require us to live differently. From our health, relationships, professional life, spiritual, mental/emotional, we will be, in some way, made to look at it. It also makes looking at our resolutions very differently. We can start there by being truthful in what we need to do. Want to lose weight this year? Don’t just go on a short-term diet. Make a lifestyle change. Looking to have more success in your business? Don’t look at doing so much more. Be more authentic and genuine in your business. Take time to actually care about your clients and services and not look at people as a dollar sign. Tired of your current relationship? Find out what you dislike about it and what you are also doing to contribute to the problem. You attracted that relationship in the first place as there’s something you had to learn from it. We often look to outside sources when things aren’t going a certain way in our lives. In some cases, it is an outside source. When it’s not, we have a choice in how we choose to handle it. We can make excuses, place blame, ignore it, etc. but until you take responsibility for it, nothing with change, and it’ll be another year of missed goals, forgotten resolutions, and failed attempts. It’s time to get real with yourself and stand in truth.

Oh, did you also know… you have help too. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. There are many people willing to help you with your journey. Those who are living in truth want to see you and others succeed and will do what they can to help you. All you have to do is ask.

When you choose to live in truth, life actually gets much easier. You’re not dodging things to make something work or putting on a mask for others. You can be genuine and authentic as you are. When I look back at everything that happened last year, I’m glad it happened. At the time, I wasn’t enjoying it but looking back, it got me to the place I always wanted to be. My personal goal this year is: Step into my power and live my truth. My truth is different than everyone else’s. You have to find what it is for you. It will take a lot of healing and self-discovery to figure that out. It took me almost an entire year to get connected with my truth. The journey was worth it. I hope this year, you live your truth and get everything you want and more. Blessings! Here’s to a new year!!

Healing From The Root

“Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it.” ~ Tori Amos

Healing is a process. It requires us to look at the areas of our lives we’ve neglected for years. Before we started on our spiritual/healing journeys, we learned to cover up our issues so we wouldn’t have to deal with them,. Unfortunately, they would come back around for us to deal with them again, so we bandage them up once more. Of course, that bandage was only temporary so the problem comes back yet again. This is a vicious cycle that many go through to solve problems in their lives.

It would be safe to say that most people around the world live in a symptomatic society. We like to look at the symptoms of problems and cure those. For example, you may see a number of commercials promoting the newest weight loss pill and their “success” stories. These companies know that people are desperate to lose weight and look good so they construct an ad that promotes that look and feeling. What people are buying is a temporary fix that will eventually fail and they’ll gain weight again. Instead of buying a quick fix pill, the ideal solution would be to evaluate what their body really needs, adjust their diet, exercise and have a total lifestyle change. This takes work which a lot of people don’t want to do. While the pill is more attractive, the lifestyle change would truly solve their problems and probably give them the optimal health they’re really looking for. This is a common problem for people when they go through healing. Even the best of us get caught up in this . You can not fix your problems by resolving surface issues in your life. The true transformation comes from healing the root cause of your issue(s).

Getting to the core of our issues liberates us from the pain and burden of our problem(s) and keeps them from coming back. It also opens the doors to solutions that lead us to become more of our authentic self, the one that works in our highest and best way. In order to do that, we must take a long look in the mirror and get real with ourselves. It’s not easy and can be painful, although, it doesn’t have to be. When I first started my journey, I was scared out of my mind to look at myself but either I did it or I didn’t heal. It’s been a long time since then and I’m still healing but it gets easier to do some days. If you really want to resolve any major issues in your life, you must start with finding the core cause of it. Once you clear that out, then you can move forward.

This process isn’t always easy and it can get very emotional, even painful but keep going. In the beginning it can be overwhelming and that’s ok. There are many different paths you can take through the healing process. While some paths get you there faster, the most important thing is that you get there. Then again, healing is not a destination, it is a journey.
