Sometimes secrets are intentionally kept. On birthdays we don’t want our friends to know what we are giving them because we want them to be surprised.

Sometimes wonderful, velvet memories are kept secret because they are intensely private and personal. We do not care to share what they are because they might be misunderstood and not cherished by others as we cherish them ourselves.

But then there are the prickly or even stabbing secrets that hurt us then and continue to hurt us now. Those secrets are best aired and released. Read the rest of this entry »

Some say spirit is the healer and they are right. But what does that really mean? Is the spirit that heals an amorphous being, a specter, phantom, apparition or halloween spook? If so, then why are we afraid of ghosts? But no, the spirit that heals is far more than that — and far more readily available to all. Read the rest of this entry »

All healing is essentially the release from fear.

To make our healing work very simple, it helps to think of the light switch on the wall that is either on or off. If we agree to call our inner emotional states by two terms, either love or fear, then our progress will be rapid.

Just as one is never just a “little” pregnant — you are also neither a “little” in love or fear. You are either relaxed and happy and aware of love — or not. You could think of the inner human state simply as, “love on” or “love off” — and we call “love off”, for want of a better term, fear. Read the rest of this entry »

Words are difficult for some of us, especially those of us who were badly traumatized. So we feel perplexed by words. We don’t know how to express what we feel. Is what we feel “panic” or “anxiety”?

Steps 1-2-3-4-5

Below are some very simple steps all healing goes through.

1) Determine to free yourself — “I am willing to see this differently.”

Healing cannot be forced upon you. It needs to be invited before it comes to help.

2) Assure yourself that you are safe here & now…

Look around you, make sure that you are safe, here and now. Assure yourself that your story happened in the past and the past is gone. Breathe into the tension and tightness, the bodily sensations. Let the breath massage all the fear and tension out of you.

3) Tell or write your story in the first person, or as if it is happening to someone else…
