Who are you making bigger than you?
In this time of chaotic, fast change, the world is at a turning point as consciousness has reached critical mass – it’s quite extraordinary and at times confusing!
Gurus and sages, politicians and oracles on the streets have been talking about this time in history as one of great transition- of the old order and the old ways finally giving way to a whole new way of being. It’s happening in almost every facet of life- from the environment to government to inner work to spiritual awakenings.
Change is coming and it’s coming fast – whether we like it or not.
And we all have a choice – surrender to it and become more aligned with our truth and our path, or run the risk of hurting ourselves, our community, our planet.
The choice is yours.
One of the things I have seen happening over the past year or so, especially the past 6 months, is this greater need to accelerate healing. To figure it all out – NOW. There is an urgency to healing that I’m noticing and a desire for many to dive deep into the pool and heal- so that we are more integrated, more aligned, more free to live the life we came here to live.
I have men and women from all walks of life contacting me daily, determined to not only heal their physical ailments, but also their deeper spiritual ones as well. From artists to bankers to yogis to therapists, I see an urgent need to dig beneath the surface, identify what needs to be healed, what patterns need to break, what grief and love for the self needs to be fully realized. To locate where these things are hidden in the body and allow the body to heal.
Allow the self to heal.
Allow yourself to do the healing.
What I am seeing emerge time and time again is not only a willingness of more people to heal themselves, but almost a primal need to. More people are being called upon to do The Work, and they are suddenly empowered to do so.
You see, it’s not about the doctor, shaman, guru, goddess, priestess, healer or priest.
The solution and fix-all is actually… YOU.
I’ve had this conversation with many teachers and healers over the years who I’ve studied and practiced with. Recently I was feeling disempowered by certain people who were not exactly walking their talk, regurgitating material with no heart and the almost blind following of others in this group.
It wasn’t just in this one group that I started to feel this – I was seeing it happen all over the ‘consciousness and spiritual marketplace’. Women and men following a teacher instead of trusting why they know intuitively, their own core truths and desires. It felt wrong, constricting, and against what my true nature source is here to do.
Instead, I finally began trusting and listening to my own inner voice and wisdom when it came to my healing – and took on the personal responsibility to create the path of practices that are in resonance to my calling to better serve me, my clients and the animals.
I want you too, to have Faith that you already have the answers inside. Faith that you already know what is best for you, what you require to be happy!
Whether or not I always listened, well that’s a whole other story.
Over the years and as I’ve developed my programs and tools for clients, I’ve spent a lot of time with this question of authority of the facilitator vs. responsibility of each person in their own path and healing. And what I find is this interesting mix-up has occurred. Somehow over time, we as humans have come to believe that our leaders/teachers know what is best for us, and for many, the result is to follow them blindly, rely on them, expect them to heal us in whatever it is we need- without having to do any of the Work ourselves.
In a way, this is very much Blind Faith. Blind to the realization that the answers are already inside of you.
Yes, I’ll say it again – the answers to your healing are already inside of you.
You already know what you need.
You are your own guru.
Just as I am mine. And she is hers, and he is his… As we all are.
When you work with me, I don’t know everything that your soul needs. I don’t know what the deepest longing of your heart is. I don’t know how exactly you need to heal what pains you.
What I do know is how to guide you there and give you the tools to do it yourself- to find your own answers.
And this, I believe, is the greatest value of any teacher, guru, priest or professional in your healing path. Empowering you with the tools and knowledge you need to do the healing work yourself. We can be here to guide you & teach you methods to get there. But-
It must be you who goes to the deepest places of your being to heal. You- and only you- can make yourself whole by trusting what you know from the heart space of your being, knowing, perceiving and receiving all of you – perfectly imperfect and unique in every way.
If someone comes to me and says ‘Fix me, I am broken’ (and yes, it often happens just like that), I smile wide and tell them it will not be me who does the healing, but themselves. After the protests that this is impossible, I give them a session and then politely suggest owning and acknowledging their potency, using the recommended tools from my Guidebook to Happiness ( you can get in under my free resources here : http://accessurtruenature.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Guidebook-To-Creating-a-Magical-Life.pdf
and to make a personal commitment to a private one one mentoring or group program (either mine or another practitioner)- taking full responsibility for their own process.
Because if you don’t take the time with yourself to hear your own wisdom, no matter what I say on a call or on the table, the pain will always return. The tears will continue, the illness will not cease. A miracle will not happen. But spending time listening, using the tools I or any other healer/teacher/guru provide, will give you what you need to heal what you are experiencing.
It may not heal the injury or illness directly, but it will help you be at peace in the midst of it. And that is often what healing, true healing, is all about.
More and more, I am witnessing this shift as we each begin to wake up and take responsibility for our own lives- no longer relying on others to ‘fix’ us – we are not broken to begin with. No longer living in the dark. No longer denying our own power.
And instead, meeting your one true teacher: YOU.
