Let's Heal Ourselves. Let's Heal Our World.

 Some quotes to ponder:

Heal the world, make it a better place.  For you and me, and the entire universe. (Sung by Michael Jackson)

 The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to healing the world.  (Marianne Williamson)

The inner self of every human waits patiently until we are ready to discover it; then it extends an invitation to enter the luminous mystery of existence in which all things are created, nurtured, and renewed.  In the presence of this mystery, we not only heal ourselves, we heal the world.  (Deepak Chopra)

As Above, So Below . . . Part 2

      In the interview that was featured in the video I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Michelle Lee described a process in which one can heal oneself from traumas and hurts.  My belief is that when we heal ourselves, we heal the world.  "As within, so without," as the quote goes.

     She also alluded to an additional step after her trauma healing process, which is to rid the meridians of the body of the energy of trauma through EFT.

     What is EFT, you ask?  It stands for Emotional Freedom Technique, and involves tapping on certain meridian points (think Chinese acupuncture or acupressure points) while saying something along the lines of, "Even though I feel ___________ (angry, hurt, betrayed, sad, etc.) about _________ (situation or person), I still deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself."   You continue to say that statement while tapping the various meridian points.  It takes maybe 2-3 minutes, and it really brings a big sense of relief, from my own experience.

     You can access one video as an explanation here, but there are many, many videos and books available for you to explore if you wish.  Happy tapping!

As Above, So Below . . .

      Perhaps you have heard the quote, "As above, so below.  As within, so without."  Well, I thought it would be good to focus on the last part of the equation -- as within, so without.

     First, what does that mean?  To me, it means that what we do inside ourselves is reflected in the All.  If we work on healing ourselves -- from traumas, hurts, disagreements, irritations, and so on -- then those healings will trickle into the whole of humanity and beyond.  

     So, the first question is:  Do you want to help heal the world?  If you do, first heal yourself.

     Easier said than done, of course.  But fear not, Dear Reader, I have some help for you.  

     I came across a very interesting video a while back and have been eager to share it with you.  It is an interview with a mother-daughter duo who work on manifestation and healing, and on it is a very beneficial healing procedure that you can do on your own.  I've tried it myself and it works wonders.  The healing procedure begins at about 26:30 into the video, but if you have the time, the whole video is worth seeing.  You can access it here.  Happy viewing!

     [One caveat:  If you have significant trauma in your background, please consult a professional.]
