It Is Love After All, That Heals…..
As “A Course in Miracles” suggests, I ascribe to the philosophy that all suffering arises from an error in thinking, perception or judgment. As soon as we change our perception, we change our direction. Sounds easy enough, right?
I once asked a well-known psychiatrist in Orange County what he learned from treating patients for 30 years. Without hesitation, he answered, “Change takes a long time!” If we are treating problems at the root, it doesn’t have to take a long time.
Mainstream healing modalities place an emphasis on finding out what is wrong with the patient. This creates separation. The practitioner relies on labels and definitions as well as their own analytical abilities to connect the negative condition to a proscribed “diagnosis and corresponding treatment.” The patient is made “wrong.” By default, the patient is instantly placed in an inferior position to the practitioner who is in the position of authority. The patient is prevailed upon to shift his/her power over to the practitioner. If the patient resists this power struggle (which is a natural inclination) the relationship becomes polarized until the patient relents. This is separation.
Frequently, I find in my work that the client was in fact right in their initial reaction and response. However, because they were unable to affect their circumstances, or were powerless to act differently at the time, their interpretation of the incident remains faulty. Because we are not taught how to handle emotions appropriately the initial erroneous thoughts and emotional reactions are suppressed and remain below the level of unconscious. This unconscious erroneous belief system surrounding this initial incident is what is still inhibiting them. We continue to accumulate subsequent experiences around the original experience (the layers of the onionskin) until crisis erupts or we become mentally and emotionally paralyzed.
Separation or “loss of self” is the primary reason why individuals seek counseling in the first place. When clients are assisted in repairing the “loss of self” including; the release of ego attachments, constructive emotional release, corrections in erroneous thinking and learning self-love, therapy is effective. It is love after all, that heals.
The “90 Minute Miracle”™ Technique works to heal the emotions, incorrect thoughts and perceptions that reside below the level of consciousness. We explore when, where and how these deeply buried and long forgotten ideas originated. We identify the belief systems and resulting patterns. We explore the positive and negative polarities in our subconscious belief systems and the impact that they are having on our lives. We release the accumulated negative thoughts and beliefs and replace them with new affirmations. Ultimately we learn how to create positive, life-affirming, new experiences upon which to build more rewarding, and satisfying relationships and successful endeavors.
