Choosing healing does not necessarily mean no disease will ever
occur. Accepting full responsibility for our lives means accepting the
results or consequences of our choices, whatever they may be. Disease may occur
due to reasons within our without our realm of understanding. Choosing to be
"at cause" rather than a victim, will, however, change the experience of our
disease and allow us to grow and to learn whatever lessons it brings to us.
Healing may occur in many different forms. Healing may result in a
disappearance of all symp-toms, such as in the case of the many spontaneous
remission from malignant tumors. Or, healing may occur in the final moments of
one's life in the process of letting go and surrendering.
Choice and accepting responsibility is not about blame. Whether we
choose to heal now or later is up to us. There is no right or wrong, good or
bad about it. We determine our own futures. One particular choice may bring
ease and smoothe the rough waters. Another may bring more suffering.
A 65 year-old woman came to us several years ago because she was terribly
overweight. We had a couple of sessions, then she decided to try Nutri Systems
instead. She called again six months ago. She took off 60 pounds through Nutri
Systems, which she promptly gained back.
She was now suffering from severe joint pain due to her weight, and she was
dragging around all the time. She understood that she had to make the choice to
heal, in this case to take responsibili-ty for her own weight. She was ripe for
change. Homeopathy relieved her physical pain. Every hypnosis session we have
done has been a minor miracle in her self-acceptance. She now understands that
her weight gain came about to free her from a stagnant, suffocating marriage
and that she can keep the fruits of her learning without having to hold on to
the weight. She is now able to love herself and to embrace all of herself. Her
excess baggage no longer has a purpose and we anticipate that she can now
Healing may happen more quickly than you imagine. Be ready for it!
We recently learned a technique which has tremendous potential for changing
and healing individuals, organizations, and the planet. It is called
"Holodynamics" and was developed by Vernon Woolf, Ph.D. A woman attended one of
Vern's seminars not too long ago. Her greatest fear was of being sexually
assaulted. She learned, in the seminar, a way to release past obstructions and
then to face, and transform her terror of rape. Several days following the
seminar, she took her children to play in a park. A dirty-looking man
approached her with a knife. Remembering her Holodynamics skills, she asked
him, "What do you want?" He replied, "You know what I want".
She countered with "No, what do you really want?" She caught him off
guard with this question. It resulted, believe it or not, in her sitting down
with him in the grass for the next two hours helping him to find out what he
really did want for his life. You may be scratching your head in amazement as
you read this, and so was he! Her willingness to create change allowed healing
to occur and transformed the situation from a brutal assault into a powerful
REMEMBER, THE TIME FOR HEALING IS NOW, THE PLACE IS HERE, AND THE CHOICE
IS YOURS! GO FOR IT!
