Help Yourself and Others with The Curious Mind Healing Technique


We know the STANDING ROCK protestors will need to continue their efforts through the cold winter since Energy Transfer Partners refuse to quit drilling. Do you feel they or others in the world are being treated unfairly and YOU WANT TO HELP? Look at your own emotions to practice this Healing Technique from Joseph Drumheller:the-curious-mind

Healing Technique – The Curious Mind

The following technique can be used on yourself and others, even if they are at a distance.

In over two decades in my walk as a healer, I’ve learned suppressed emotion from the past is one of the premier contributors to our suffering. Of the countless techniques effective in releasing suppressed emotion, none are as effective in their simplicity as The Curious Mind.

The Curious Mind naturally cultivates a certain level of necessary detachment between you and the emotion. All of a sudden it’s not your anger, hurt, or depression; it’s only an emotion you’re experiencing. In other words, your suppressed emotions are not you, they’re only something that’s happening to you. As you will experience, this creates a beneficial space between you and the emotion—a very helpful gap that enhances the release process.

Try This: Start with a clear-cut intention to heal a specific suppressed emotion completely. Sit or lie in a comfortable position and enter a deeply relaxed state. Next, feel the emotion in your body, as related to the area of life (or person) you’re trying to heal. It may be rage in your head (Crown Chakra), heaviness in your heart (Heart Chakra), tension in your stomach (Solar Plexus Chakra), etc. It should come readily. If it doesn’t, just pretend you can feel it (remember, the imagination is real, so pretending works). If you get bombarded with mind chatter or distracting thoughts, just let them come and go like watching clouds drifting by in the sky.

Next, simply pay attention to the emotion as you experience it. Be curious. Say to yourself, something like, “Oh, isn’t that interesting. I feel rage in my head, how curious.” As you focus on that experience, you’ll begin to feel a weakening, softening, or letting go of the emotion.

Now, here’s where everyone begins to differ, so you’ll need to develop you own method. You may feel the emotion as it begins to spin or swirl and move out of your body. It may start to dissolve or let go. It may create interesting sensations in your body like tingling, warmth, or deep peace. Whatever happens, keep your focus on what’s taking place. Don’t wallow in the emotion but stay with it, until it’s gone.

That’s it; the suppressed emotion is gone. If it returns, it will come back with less intensity and less frequency. Then go through the process again. It’s like lighting a log on a fire. Keep burning it, until it’s nothing but ash.

Many thanks to Joseph Drumheller for this great technique. Joseph is an award-winning author and energy healer from Washington State. He’s conducted over 2,000 sessions since 1991 and worked six years at a cancer treatment center in Bellingham, WA, honing his craft as a healer. His books include non-fiction, award-winning fiction, and now children’s books. See more at: www.josephdrumheller.com

With all the anger and divisiveness following the recent election, and many people needing peaceful resolution in their lives at this time, The Curious Mind can help us regain peace within ourselves first, then send it out to the world. DISTANT HEALING TECHNIQUES allow us to be of service from wherever we may be.

Namaste!

Instant Pain Relief for your Lower Back


When I injured my lower back in a skiing accident, I was pleasantly surprised that most of my physical therapist’­s suggestion­s were yoga stretches. I was able to take it from there and carefully, after a month, return to my full daily yoga routine. But even after healing, I like many others, feel pain in the injured area when under stress (when I breathe in perfume or other chemicals, which causes inflammati­on in my body) or when angry (see Dr. Sarno’s book, Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body Connection­). Pain specialist­s have also just done studies showing that the brain can become habituated to feeling pain, even after an injury has healed.

So, once again, I have to suggest mind-body healing techniques first, to retrain the subconscio­us, before undergoing more drastic medical interventi­on.

DYNAMIND
My favorite “instant” healing technique is DYNAMIND, taught by Serge Kahili King, PhD, an expert in Huna healing and Hawaiian shamanism.

How does it work? You hold your hands in a prayer position in front of your solar plexus chakra, or navel area, say what you’re feeling, e.g., “I feel stabbing pain in my lower back and I know that can change. I want that pain to go away.” Then tap seven times on the center of your chest above your thymus gland, then seven times on the web between the thumb and forefinger of each hand, then seven times on your neck at the knob where it meets your back. Then, with hands back in prayer position, take a deep breath in from the top of your head and let it out the bottom of your feet.

This technique uses words, motion, breath, acupuncture points, affirmations,  etc., to change your subconscious belief that your pain can’t change. If one round focusing on the physical pain doesn’t provide relief, work to change the emotions associated with the pain. For instance, say “I feel anger in my lower back and I know that can change. I want the anger to go away.”

OPEN THE HEART CHAKRA TO THE HEALING POWER OF LOVE


“Through love all pain will turn to medicine.” ~ Rumi

All healers work their magic through the power of love. And we can all heal ourselves – by releasing the tension that stops our healing energy from flowing. How? Through love. Open your heart chakra, and feel the love and compassion flow through yourself and out to the world.

The 4th or Heart Chakra is located at your heart center. It represents selfless love, kindness, compassion, and is where we store emotional experiences.

Signs of an unbalanced Heart Chakra include anger, insensitivity, depression, grief, despair, jealousy and sadness. When this chakra is balanced, we are able to give and receive love, be compassionate and feel true connection with others. We can enjoy our feelings. This is also where we begin to experience the power of pray and meditation, which emanate from this center.

YOGA POSES FOR THE HEART CHAKRA
The Spinal Twist opens and expands the heart center. The Head of Cow, where you reach your arms behind you to meet in the middle of your back, also opens the chest and relieves tension in the back and shoulders.

MEDITATION ON THE HEART CHAKRA
Feel the yellow sacral chakra light from the navel area travel up to the center of your chest, turning into a bright green, as it enters the home of the heart chakra. Breathe in and out the beautiful emerald green mist surrounding you with love, joy and compassion for yourself and others. Feel any tension blocking the flow of this love. Any anger is passed. Any fear is in the future. Heal these emotions in the now. When you let go of negative emotions, you’ll relax the tension they create and feel your true essence of love and healing power flow. Send forgiveness to those who may have caused pain, wrapping them in the bright green light, cleansing and healing the situation. Release yourself and them from any negative connections, only keeping the good. Now, wrap yourself and your whole life experience in healing green light.

Several of the characters in The Chakra Diaries learn forgiveness in the course of chakra balancing, and their lives are freed from the restraints of negativity. They are free to love and be loved, to spread their love to the world. Read more in The Chakra Diaries ~ on special sale now at Amazon.com.
