The Power of Our Words
Sometimes negative self talk comes from the best of intentions.
I was raised by parents who had a very strong work ethic. Having lived through the Great Depression, they were of the mindset that to get ahead one must sacrifice and work very hard. So it’s not too surprising that I inherited that same attitude about hard work. Throughout various careers in my life, I have been “all in”—reading, studying, attending workshops—whatever it took to excel in that career.
My path to self healing
I’d been working in fitness when I discovered energy medicine. As someone who had come from a very strong background in Western medicine, I was fascinated with the world of energy work. I truly felt like I was in a new house that had so many rooms! I fell back on that work ethic and read everything I could get my hands on about various energy medicine modalities, attended many workshops, and earned several certifications.
A colleague suggested that I attend a workshop on medical intuition. I wasn’t sure this was something I was capable of doing, but I agreed to try it out. I immediately felt like I was finally “home”. My fabulous teacher and mentor, Tina Zion, helped me to realize that I was very much able to do the work and showed me many ways I was already receiving intuitive wisdom.
I’ve been at it for a while now and have continued to hone my skills. However, recently I decided I should probably be able to see in more detail, like a picture you would come across in an anatomy textbook. While I was giving very accurate readings, I was working very hard to see more clairvoyantly–reading a lot on the subject, calling in my Divine and Sacred Guides as specialists, and spending a lot of time in meditation, all the while asking for a guide to help me “see” more clearly.
I woke up one morning about a month ago unable to see out of my left eye. A visit to the eye doctor confirmed a viral infection which had created high pressure in the eye. I had been quite literally “pressuring” myself to see. I was not surprised that it was on the left side of my body, the side that has to do with the feminine energy of receiving. Instead of letting the information come in gently I was pushing outward, searching, instead of letting the answers come to me effortlessly.
When I realized the significance of what had happened in my physical body, I decided to ask my guides to assist me in “letting the information just float in”. And…you guessed it…I very quickly developed “floaters” in the eye.
Seeing with X-ray eyes
I’m happy to say that my eye is healing nicely, I am much more aware of how intuition is coming to me, and guess what? I am seeing much more like those X-rays and anatomy photographs I was trying so hard to call up myself.
Be easy on yourself, you will be surprised at how much you are already receiving. And most of all, be careful with the words you say to yourself–your body is truly listening!
