How To Take Control Of Your Life And Be Truly Resilient

Build your psychological resilience. Sorry, but there’s really no candy-assed answer for this one. It is a personal journey, and it doesn’t happen over night. Many were not given the opportunity to build their psychological resilience as children, and this leads to adults who have a victim mind-set. Helplessness drives everyone away except for enablers and predators. Stop waiting for people to rescue you, and start rescuing yourself. Here are the 5 main ways we accomplish this:

Work On Your Confidence

Not pretending, not being arrogant. It means learn to accept yourself for who you are. Maybe you don’t really know yourself. If that’s the case, I encourage you to begin the process of discovering your gifts and all the wonderful things that make you You. A session with a seasoned healer can help if you don’t know where to start. Be realistically optimistic, everyone has special gifts and magic. Everyone also has things they are not good at, be okay with this. Cultivate a belief in your ability to solve problems, which only happens if you try to solve your problems. I’ll bet when you do, you will amaze yourself with what you can accomplish.

Become Self-Aware

Make a conscious effort to be aware of where you’re at with your emotional mastery. Understand the faulty programming you may have received as a child, and challenge your beliefs and assumptions. Notice patterns in your life. Are you always stressed in the morning? Do you always pick hurtful friends or hang around people who are a bad influence? Do you tend to be defensive when there wasn’t truly a need? Notice the patterns and accept that they aren’t happening to you, but with you

Be Accountable

Accept full responsibility for your own life, including all decisions and actions. You may first need to humble thy self, which sounds scary to some, but is actually liberating. It is your job to build a healthy support system, which includes a balanced give-and-take. It is your job to manage your mental health and life. This means that if you have, say, anxiety, it is your job to find healing and manage it. It is your job to deal with the repercussions that come from any and all of your personal endeavors. This may include asking for help, but it doesn’t entitle you to it either. We all have our own crosses to bear, and those who take personal accountability for theirs become powerful in their own life.

Learn To Adapt

Sometimes we must deal with situations that are uncomfortable. Sometimes things change. Managing unexpected detours should be expected in this reality. Be like the Willow tree and bend instead of breaking, while remaining open to opportunities for growth, learning and eventual peace and happiness

Find A Purpose

A purpose earns us a sense of strength and self-esteem. A purpose can be anything, its best to leave ego out of this one. Being consciously kind to animals is a purpose. Helping your family thrive is a purpose. Being an example of a Divine Masculine is a purpose. Becoming a dentist who volunteers in the prisons is a purpose. Whatever purpose you feel in your heart will develop your personal resilience and is most definitely part of your mission in this life. Again, if you are having trouble finding your purpose, a healer or life coach can help.

Can A Psychic Predict Your Future?

Often times my clients or friends will ask me to make predictions. In my experience, wanting predictions signifies a person who lacks accountability in their life or doesn’t understand their role in creation. Yea, that sounds pretty harsh, but at the root, it’s a misguided belief that their life is somehow at the mercy of others, forgetting their great responsibility to co-create the reality we share. We have Free Will, and every action and choice we make has an effect on all possible outcomes. (Okay, side note, many people have unknowingly or in defeated manner given away their Free Will which is a topic for another day) Long term predictions are often little more than guesses, which unfortunately creates beliefs and eventual outcomes in many cases. Psychic Intuition deals with the here and now, it cant fathom what will occur several incidents and choices down the road. We have Free Will. This means we are co-creating collectively. And this is a big part of our human journey, learning to create and love. It is why we must be conscious of the choices we make. We cant blame God for the results of our own actions. This is collectively our “project”, and if we fuck it up, that’s on us. Not to get too out there, but when we look at the messages from ascended masters or channelled spirits, even visitations from other beings, we are always urged to make better choices, that Gaia is in crisis mode and that for the sake of the Universe and our own ascension, we need to figure this out already. Intelligent guesses of possible outcomes are hardly psychic awareness. I know that if I keep throwing garbage into my pond, eventually all the fish will die and it will become polluted. I know that if I’m dating someone who isn’t treating me right, it’ll likely end badly. Most people can easily see what you don’t want to see, and this is the crux of the unethical psychic community. Instead of Intuitives empowering people with knowledge and insights, they sell a prophecy and god-like image. Even the great oracles of the past have barely gotten half their predictions on point, and most of them are vague enough to be applied to almost anything. I’ve seriously lost track of how many times people have shared with me predictions a psychic has sold them, only to leave them confused and desperate. I take these people and re-instill a sense of confidence and control, armed with knowledge and insight. We have a responsibility to create a better world, to create our own reality, and quite frankly that Truth is not easily sold. But if you realized how awesome this power and responsibility is, you’ll see you can create for yourself, an abundant life.

So, can an Intuitive read currant energies? Absolutely. I can effectively tap into created or currant reality. Can I determine what choices and subsequent results will occur after you leave my office? No, that’s your Free Will and the consequences of it. I may receive visions of what could be possible, but this doesn’t mean you’ll choose or take the steps to make it happen.

When we tap into someones path, say with tarot cards, whats happening here is the message is connected to you’re own subconscious beliefs, we simply reveal it. When I read cards for myself, I cant help but notice the message is what I was already believing. If I believe someone will come back, the cards show them coming back. A week later when I think they wont, the cards show they wont. The messages are spooky accurate, but they also change with my own beliefs. If you believe someone is your “twin flame”, the cards will agree. If you believe you’re in danger, the cards will agree. If you believe there’s $ on its way…. you get the idea.

As a healer, I prefer to help you tune into your inner wisdom and power, quit being desperate for answers and instead provide insights. Your intuition does want to help you, but its a one step at a time thing, as that is all we can be aware of.

One lady came in for Reiki, and started asking me questions about a toxic relationship she had. A psychic told her this man was her “twin flame runner” confirming what she already suspected. She then wanted to know when he was coming back. Its hard to watch people throw their power away like this. I explained to her what I saw, that he wasn’t respecting her or interested in being with her at this time. That the message was clear, this is whats happening now so act accordingly – take care of yourself because this jerk has you all frazzled and he has no intention of changing anytime soon. I could also see she had a lack of self respect and that’s why she is with people who don’t respect her, something she created. The advice was for her to do the self work and begin a daily meditation routine so she could DECIDE for herself if this was a worthwhile prize to chase. Well that sounds a lot less fun than what the psychic told her, so she left without listening. That’s fine, if you just want fun and games go back to the psychic and see where that gets you. When you’re ready to actually heal and create a good life, I’ll be here with open arms. Not to bring up the obvious, but if psychics could honestly predict future outcomes they’d all be stinkin’ rich and opportunistically benefiting from all sorts of things.

So, the next time you go to a psychic healer be sure to remember that it is essentially YOU who will determine your outcome, success and losses. Energy is fluid and it can change from day to day. It is YOU who is creating your future alongside the collective. This world, and our very own lives, is ours for the making, and every choice we make will impact the future in a way no human mind is able to predict, in a way that no outside entity is able to control. This is OUR world. The future is created 1 step at a time and its a power that is in our hands. That is empowerment – recognizing your role in the future.

Are We Attracting Or Seeking?

There is a popular notion among the New Age community that we “attract” events and things to us. The insinuation is that we are somehow powerful enough to essentially control other beings and the Universe at large. While we do influence the world around us, we certainly do not have the means, or right quite frankly, to make decisions for or have that kind of power over other sentient beings. It is, after all, a collective consciousness. We do have power over ourselves, and it is our self that we are affecting when we manifest. We control our own path. Our own vibration, choices and actions will effect others, again, a collective outcome. But when we have manifested results or things, it is because we have altered our own energy and path. This is how it works:

Our subconscious (or our Akashic record) is where all our thoughts begin. It’s a record of everything you have ever experienced and even though you may not remember or be aware of all the activity going on back there, it is what’s influencing your conscious thoughts and choices. Your reasoning in any given situation is highly influenced by the subconscious record of experiences. Many of our manifestation techniques are actually working to change our subconscious beliefs. For example, affirmations. Affirmations are repeated continuously until the subconscious belief is, in some cases overridden. However, this is tricky to do if there are trapped emotions (aka Karma) that need to be cleared, thus in many cases the affirmation doesn’t have substantial effect. Our trapped emotions heavily influence our subconscious, which seeks to resolve the Karma (If it is simply a matter of faulty programming then affirmations work beautifully!) Once the trapped emotion is cleared, the lesson or understanding is complete. We have now changed OUR belief system. What happens next? Well, we are now open to new possibilities, we are now subconsciously and intuitively seeking what we want without blocks or restriction. It’s not that we changed everyone else, we changed our own self and thus the path and choices we make. It’s why, after years of being bad relationships, we’re suddenly attracted to healthy partners instead of unavailable people. We didn’t force a good person into our life, they were out there all along. We simply now allow our self to see, choose and be attracted to healthy partners. We didn’t pull it towards our self, we are now seeking it. If our heart chakra is blocked with a heart wall, its not that clearing the low vibrations is somehow forcing good people onto our path, we are simply now open to receive Love, which was out there all along, waiting to be discovered.

When we do energy clearing, specifically emotion code (which allows us to actually understand the energies/emotions and time it occurred so it can be cleared) we are clearing the blocks that are blinding or steering us away from what we want.

The subconscious is like the rudder of the boat. It leads us to where we need to go. The fish were out there all along, we didn’t force them to our fishing line, we simply corrected our course to where the fish just are.

When doing energy clearing, we discover the block and clear it. This changes OUR intentions and path, not everyone else.

We are spiritual beings having a human experience to help us evolve. If we have a trapped emotion (karma) then we will continue to seek experiences that help us to understand and learn. Once the karmic lesson is solved, we are now free to move on to bigger and better things!

Everyone Can Manage Their Anxiety

I like to consider myself a bit of an expert when it comes to anxiety because I’ve lived with it my whole life.  Of all the low-vibrating emotions, anxiety is my go-to.  And much like the best addiction counselors are ex-drug users, I am an ex-anxious person who has some real-life solutions for dealing with anxiety, reducing its severity, and understanding it in a way that many others cannot.  It is exhausting and often paralyzing.  It keeps us stuck, it lies to us, emphasizes the things we don’t like about our self, it makes us irritable,… and it usually starts in childhood.   This revelation is sometimes met with confusion, many clients stating they didn’t start feeling it until early adulthood, however the programming and past experiences are often the root of the relentlessness.  Easy answer, I know, but by tapping into our subconscious and dissecting messages and lifelong habits, we can find the root cause.  And it doesn’t take months or even years in my space, as it does in traditional therapy.  Its just a matter of being in the right mindset and tapping in.  These revelations are Step One to soothing anxiety.   I am human and so it would be delusional and dishonest to say I don’t still have my days.  Like I said, anxiety is my go-to emotion when things aren’t “perfect”, so I’ve become quite good at managing my anxiety.  Here are some of the ways I manage my anxiety on a day-to-day basis:

1)Get To Know Your Triggers  It can be really hard to believe that you’re going down the anxiety hill until its too late sometimes.   Anxiety makes small things feel really big.  Anxiety can start slow like a frog in boiling water.  Anxiety can tell us we are worthy of punishment and negative self-talk.  Become mindful of the who/what/where/when/ and how’s.  In other words, is there a person that triggers anxiety in you, which then grows for days?   Sometimes the anxiety takes a bit to build.   Is there a place that makes you feel irritable or grumpy whenever you’re there, that is possibly a side-effect of anxiety?  Is there a part of your anti-self that you need to work on?  Ask a trusted loved one if they have spotted any triggers in you, and be willing to think about their answers for a few days.   Understand your triggers so that you can manage them.

2)Eat A Nutritious Diet    This is just so important.  The mind-body connection is real my friends.  I could reference a thousand studies showing the link between mental health and diet, but a simple Google search is already at your fingertips;)  Check it out.  I have noticed huge declines in my mental health when eating  poorly, it’s a consistent trigger for me.   If your body doesn’t have the tools it needs to be healthy, you will feel it mentally.

 3)Limit Social Media        Again, both personal experience, and scientific studies show that social media is bad for mental health.   Sure, we all know its bad to compare, that it’s all illusion, that it messes with our brainwaves and emotional responses, but it does more than just that.  It enforces a habit of looking outside of the self for validation. It causes constant spikes in adrenaline.  Its addicting.  Truly time yourself and see how much mental space you give to these illusions daily.   Its rarely based off any kind of reality, this is stressful to the cognitive mind, and no matter how mindful you are, we all get sucked into that illusion after too much time on.  People who uses social media even moderately have been shown to spend significantly less time doing the daily chores that often bring our mind into a meditative and grounded state.   Less time cooking, cuddling, walking the dog, dusting, painting our nails or building that shelf.  Less time in our own little world.  After going down to only 1 social media platform(which I keep deactivated half the time as well now) I have noticed a big difference in my self-esteem and satisfaction of daily life.

4)Give Up Coffee!   I’m sure now you hate me!  But it had to be said.   I started drinking coffee after my second child.   Drank it for years.   Not even a lot, just a cup or two a day.  I already had my anxiety pretty well managed a few years ago, but there was always this underlying panic feeling I couldn’t put my finger on.  One day a friend, who almost never drinks the stuff, decided to enjoy a coffee her co worker brought her after a long few days.  He also brought her one the next day, which sparked anxiety in her, a feeling shes not accustomed to.  She immediately recognized the energy as one she witnessed in me, and had me over the next day to talk to me about it.  She encouraged me to try going without for a month and it has honestly changed my life.  So I researched the subject, and although there are studies talking about possible benefits, ultimately I discovered that the way it changes and effects the brain is scary.   It is a narcotic.  It was introduced to make people work harder, while thinking less intuitively (my intuition is consistent and always available now, whereas before I had to do quite a bit of prep to get there)   Caffeine is literally a natural pesticide, killing cells it comes into contact with.    MRI images show a decrease in blood flow to the brain by as much as 45% after having a coffee (http;//abcn.ws/2ipmLj7)   Coffee causes degradation of the brain.  Coffee gives us energy by putting us into a fight or flight state of mind, which triggers the lower IQ centers of our brain, meaning our higher learning parts of the brain are suppressed.   Coffee is proven to cause or contribute to several diseases, dysfunctions and defects, mental and physical.   It creates significant & measurable sleep disturbances for WEEKS after just 1 cup.   The list of harm coffee does goes on and on, but the point here today is that coffee is really bad for anxiety.

5)Create A Schedule    This may be more useful to some than others, but typically speaking those prone to anxiety don’t like unexpected situations, and tend to feel more comfortable when on a schedule.   A daily schedule with some wiggle room can take a lot of mental strain off, and help make the unexpected more manageable.  If you stress about something specific, such as work, know this as a trigger and re-train yourself using a schedule as well.  Get all your work things ready at a specific time (for me it’s the morning of the day before, as that’s when I start worrying about work) and I remind myself that its not time to worry about work yet, that I will worry about work on the day I work, and that everything is already ready now.  This allows me to go the day without worrying about it, everything’s ready and I have nothing to mentally “go over”  When you know a specific time of the week gives you anxiety, you’ve recognized a trigger and can now re-program yourself using a schedule and soothing self talk

6)Nature, Get out There   Sometimes the simplest solutions are the ones we don’t do.   It’s like we feel things must be difficult to be effective.  There is something magically harmonizing and soothing to the Soul that I just don’t have the ability to intellectualize when it comes to the healing power of Nature.  Find a favorite trail, tree or park, and just get out there.  Like, often.  Make it part of your schedule.   Spend some of that time you used to on social media and replace it with Nature.

These are my every day, anyone-can-do-it, no professional help needed tools anyone can use to manage their anxiety.  In my practice I do teach people how to meditate,  re-parent programming and positive self-talk, setting goals and managing the anti-self to further the healing, but these are really the foundation.  If you don’t put effort into managing your anxiety, then don’t expect improvement.  These tips aren’t painful or hard, they just require you to try.  I’m not shy in  my belief that those who heed the call of anxiety, who listen to it and understand it, who make honest effort to manage it, always find healing.  And those who make excuses or say “That wouldn’t work because” or ‘I cant just do that” will remain in the struggle.    Everyone can manage their anxiety.

 

Science, Spirituality & Poetry

The more I investigate spirituality and the energetic body, the more I realize ideas and knowings mirror each other across the globe. From culture to culture, there is likeness between the teachings. Here in the west we’re known for our “charts and graphs” style of care, in the east there tends to be a more poetic way of speaking and teaching. Western culture is quite like the left brain, needing intellectualized findings, where in the East the spiritual and emotional feelings are what speak volumes. Neither is wrong, in fact they validate each others’ theories and philosophies.

For example, and one that comes up again and again in my practice, are people asking about the Akashic Records (akashic meaning “space” in Sanskrit) It’s said to be the complete record of every thought, feeling, intent or action you’ve ever taken, stored within the etheric plane. It colours our direction and decisions in subtle and substantial ways. People ask me if I can access their record for various reasons, and it becomes apparent that people are attaching mystic and meaning to it that was never part of ancient scripts. It’s become a bit of a New-age catch phrase among Charlatans who make outrageous promises using vague, misunderstood records as a safety cover. Do I believe in the Akashic Records? Absolutely, but here in the West it’s usually referred to as the subconscious😉 I’ve been doing energy work and studying psychology in tandem, I am one of few who use both in my healing practice, and it is obvious to me that the Akashic records is without doubt, the subconscious. The subconscious is also a record of every experience you’ve ever had, whether it happened in this life or your last (for those who believe they’ve had multiple incarnations) I can, through muscle testing and quantum connection, explore your subconscious and ask it questions of almost any nature regarding your own self. I can find trapped emotions (aka Karma, I’ll get to that one next) and permanently clear these “blocks”, as well as help the client figure out next steps or buried experiences. I also teach people to meditate in a deep enough trance so they can access their own subconsciousakashic” revelations. Hypnotists will go into either the subconscious/akashic record, with coinciding results. The only difference between the two terms is the way they are presented, one clinical, the other spiritual.

Now onto Karma. Karma, a concept of Hinduism, has a very poetic explanation for cause and effect. It states that positive experiences have a positive effect on our future, and negative experiences have a negative influence on our future. In past it was misinterpreted by our spiritual community as a form of punishment, though we are now starting to fully understand that Karma is never punishment, that was never part of the script, however due to our cultural conditioning, we had a hard time understanding that life is a teaching experience, and not a test of good or bad. Karma is said to be part of our Soul, sticking to us from lifetime to lifetime, until we find a way to transmute/heal or integrate the lesson. We’ve all heard people joke about their “bad luck” and blame it on having done something bad in a past life, citing they must have bad karma. There is some undeniable truth to it, as we see the same issues follow a person throughout life.

This Karma is really the unseen energetic baggage of what we call “Trapped Emotions” Without going into the energetic body too much here, our body creates Emotions. Emotions are real and they have obvious affect on our lives. These emotions each have their own vibration, some are high and some are low. For various reasons these emotions can become trapped in our energetic body, aka our Spirit. They stay with us until we clear or resolve them, much like Karma. They can be passed to our children, and are sometimes viewed as Generational Karma. These Trapped Emotions have great influence over our subconscious. We can now see how Karma/a Trapped Emotion is not a punishment. Lets use an example to help:

A desperate man assaults a woman. They both create emotions from this experience, the man shame of self, the woman fear of men. Unless they find a way to resolve these emotions (Energy-in-Motion) then they will continue on with the trapped emotions, and this will effect their future. They will have “bad Karma” and energetic blocks. The man harboring shame will continue to spiral and the self hate will cause what seems like “bad Karma” Again, its not the punishment he sees it as, rather its an emotion he should be listening to. The woman with her fear of men, will continue to attract situations which are calling her to resolve the trapped emotion of fear. Again, not a punishment, but a call for healing. When we burn our self on the stove, the pain is not punishment but the bodies way of teaching us somethings not healthy, that we should learn from this experience, and to soothe the damage. These trapped emotions are energetic distortions and they will lower your vibration and alter the quantum field around you. They can cause actual physical health problems and disease. They subconsciously prevent us from moving forward until they are resolved.

Understanding this helps us to understand how Shamans clear Karma, and how Emotion Code Practitioners clear blocks to abundance and healing.

Akashic Records = The Subconscious

Karma = Trapped Emotions 

Different terms, same essence

Intentions Create The Future

Our intentions have a hefty impact on the future and how things will proceed. More important than “positive thinking”, our intention is what has influence over the quantum field. What many are realizing now about “positive thought only” concepts (eg; “The Secret”) is that… this whole idea of only thinking positive is delusional and seriously harmful. We see mixed results from these practices, and it’s for the same reason we see mixed results with placebo trials. The real secret isn’t

Only allow positive thoughts to be seen in the conscious mind and dismiss/delude/deny the more “negative” aspects of currant reality

And its not to “trick” ourselves into believing something will work or happen. The real secret to why visualization and placebos often do “work” or “manifest” is because we had the subconscious intention that it would happen. It is because we set an intention. We gave an order, an instruction. It was not because we were super nice and think super nice thoughts all day. If that were the case greedy bankers, the Cabal, anyone with dark intentions, wouldn’t be so successful. And yet we see them at the top of the ladder. They understand something that we all need to re-remember. We can give orders too. We can take back our Will and Sovereignty, and that’s not done by being a lamb.

The subconscious is a record keeper of everything that has ever happened in your life, and it is the rudder of the of the boat, so to speak. So if you truly want to heal a dis-ease, and take a placebo and it works, its not because you “tricked” your body into remission, as the currant allopathic theory claims. It is because you intended that pill to heal you, and so it did.

Now lets say it did Not work. Lets say even the actual prescription medication doesn’t work either. Whats happening now? Well, the subconscious has other plans, for various reasons. Despite best efforts, healing fails to proceed. These are what people are referring to when they say they think they have “a block” This is when its time to see a Shaman or someone else who can ethically and accurately test your subconscious to find out why it does not (yet) intend for you to heal. There is usually a trapped emotions/karmic debris that needs conscious realizing and clearing first. Perhaps there is a trapped emotion of depression, and so subconsciously you feel hopeless. Subconsciously, you want out of this life and so medication wont help. Maybe subconsciously you feel unloved, and this is the only way you currently have to get easy attention. The reasons/blocks are varied for each person.

Now lets look at positive thinking “The Secret” style. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Because sometimes, though we visualized and felt what it might be like to say, have a new house, the subconscious knows there is healing/learning or karma/trapped energy that needs to be released first. So despite making that vision board, saying positive affirmations daily, & pretending you are a magical priestess, you are not “manifesting” results. It seems like there is a “block” because all the other things you wanted came through. Most definitely your subconscious has a different intention than your conscious mind does. A visit with a Shaman may reveal that subconsciously you have a trapped emotion of fear, from when you were a child and you moved into a new neighborhood and started getting bullied. So now, despite your intentions, your subconscious’ intention is holding you back. We clear it, along with any other trapped emotions we find that are holding you back, and now your conscious and subconscious minds are on the same page.

Please note here how harmful positive-only thoughts are. If you would have only allowed yourself to feel the low vibration, you could have resolved it on your own, especially with some practice, which only comes from dealing with “negative” emotions. If you really allowed yourself to feel into it, and became aware that “I think I’m feeling some fear when I think about moving” you could have perhaps realized the block yourself, and moved past it. Instead you choose to deny the harder aspects of reality & instead bury the unpleasantness. Well, the subconscious never forgets regardless of how well you brainwashed yourself with positive affirmations. Our Mind, Body & Spirits’ intentions have to be “in alignment” for those magical manifestations to be realized. In my next blog I’ll discuss how our intentions can affect other people, how other peoples intentions can affect us, and how to manage this.

Karma Is Energy

No longer philosophy among new-agers and quantum physicists, literally everything within our world is energy.  Each atom empty but for swirling votices of subtle energy.  It is no misinterpretation of ancient script that Karma is an Energy within us, creating our path and person.  It is understanding this fact that helps us to understand Karma: low-frequency vibrations emanating out from within.

Quantum physics does a pretty good “Western” style job of explaining spirituality.   Many of the spiritual teachings being validated by scientists and researcher facilities.  There is no doubt of the subtle energies around and within us, detectable and measurable.  As most of us are now aware, illness in our physical body is directly related to our Spirit/Energetic/Emotion Body.  We create emotions (Emotions-energy_in_motion) within this body.   As we see with trauma or abuse victims, these energies/emotions can stick with us, become trapped in our energetic body, if no chance for emotional resolve is possible.   And in fact, these trapped emotions can be passed from generation to generation.   This is family/genetic Karma.  We see this on a more physical level when dis-eases seem to be passed down in a family, yet there are no (physical) genetic markers to explain how.   Its Karmic.  It is an energy being inherited.

People also come into my office sensing they have some “bad karma or something” where the same issue or imbalance keeps showing up in their life.   Some think they have “bad luck”   My first intention is to help them understand there is no bad luck, and they are not being punished.   Let me be very clear:Karma Is Not A Punishment.  It is an energetic distortion that is emanating from within, and as within so without.  Basic Law of Attraction stuff.   It is a trapped emotion screaming for healing, the way an ingrown toenail screams for relief.

Sacred teachings shows Karma as lessons and opportunities to heal.   This idea of punishment is again, new-age misinterpretations.  Thankfully the majority seems to be moving past this notion.   Karma is a dis-ease, not a punishment.  Though understandably, dis-ease often feels like punishment.

Whether you commit an unethical act, or were the victim of one (We do NOT control other people, we are not responsible for others mistakes, another cheap interpretation of ancient Law of Attraction teachings) you are likely to accrue Karmic energy.   Sometimes the victim accumulates more of these dense energies, sometimes the perpetrator does, it really depends on each’s emotional state and tribal support at the time, however both will accrue Karma: an energetic distortion within the body that must now be resolved.   And as Sacred Healing, meditation and shamanism, and social connection is at an all time low here in the West, the Karmic energy is building within us.  I hope I am explaining this clearly: Karma is NOT a punishment.  It is unresolved energetic degree/emotional baggage/trapped emotions stuck within our Spirit.

So concepts like “The Secret” are circling around these teachings, and people are realizing that all these affirmations and fake positive thinking are not actually resolving anything.   In fact, positive thinking tends to cause deeper suppression.   It’s a new age form of what old men used to do: bury their feelings so deep until they had a heart attack at 60.

Some people turn to hypnotherapy or NLP to help fix their dis-ease or imbalance.   At best, these band-aids wear off within weeks.   At worse, they successfully suppress the emotions until they come out in uglier more urgent ways, or even worse still, laying dormant until the next incarnation.   If reincarnation is your belief, then you’d better believe it will be another lifetime with this Karma.  Our physical bodies are left behind but our spirit and its wounds are eternal.  And these energetic wounds stay with us until we finally heal them.   When people say “Must be Karma from a past life” others laugh as though they did something horrible in a past life.  Maybe they did, maybe they were the victim, maybe they inherited the emotion.  Either way, it is no punishment.  It is calling for healing.

Aside from feeling into the energetic body, an experienced Shaman should be able to connect with your subconscious, which is all aware of your spirit wounds, bring these distortions up and into your conscious mind, and then clear them out.   It is a permanent clearing.   And it is deeply sacred work.   Much like Baptism, it is a cleansing of past “sins”   I am a scientific Shaman (ahaha) and I can tell you, it is a measurable and obvious change.  Usually the persons actual physical appearance changes after even 1 clearing session,  When I do these healing, I bring up the specific emotion and time it occurred, to restore the memory in the clients conscious mind.    Be wary of the con-man healer who uses vague guesses and universally applicable messages.  There is no  guessing and no placebo effect when working with a Shaman.  It doesn’t even matter if you totally believe or have high hopes because it is not placebo effect.   It is actual, permanent healing of Karma.   Life is supposed to be effortless, spontaneous, harmonious.  When Karmic energy is cleared, it now becomes so.   When we clear we need things like Reiki less often because we are now creating our own healthy high vibrations easily.  The ripple effect of clearing Karma is never-ending and often surprising in positive benefits.  This is true healing and its impact on the self and the whole run deeper than many still realize.
