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!

Holiday Blues? Your Heart Chakra Has the Antidote.


Feeling the “holiday blues” – stressed out by all the shopping, or sad that you’re without your family or a relationship at this time? Disappointed by family fights or economic concerns? Now’s the time to show love and compassion toward yourself and others.

The heart chakra is the seat of love and compassion. ‘Tis the season of forgiveness, the greatest gift you can give yourself, your family and friends. Use this HEART CHAKRA MEDITATION to move you toward this goal…

Breathe in and out a beautiful emerald green into the center of your chest, the home of the heart chakra, with love, joy and compassion for other people and yourself. Feel any tension blocking the flow here, shutting off or shutting out love. Any anger or fear is past, it can be healed. When you let it go, you’ll feel your true essence of love and joy. To send forgiveness, wrap those people who have caused you pain in the bright green light, cleansing and healing the situation. Release yourself and them from any negative connections, only keeping the good. Let go of anger to have space for love to grow. Now, with love and compassion, wrap yourself and your whole life experience in healing green light.

Spread the Love. Don’t expect a duplicate of an ideal holiday from years gone by. Create new traditions, fill your calendar with fun events and meet new people. Don’t wait for others to include you in their holiday parties – invite those who are without family to a potluck in your home instead.

Strengthen Your Mood through Movement and Music. Get exercise – yoga, walking, running – to beat depression, moving to music that uplifts you. Try getting at least 20 minutes of sunlight a day to fight any chemical causes (Vitamin D deficiency) for holiday funk. Exercise your mind too – read inspiring stories about those who have overcome adversity and succeeded. May I suggest The Chakra Diaries?

Express your Gratitude. Count your blessings, taking stock of all of the positives in your life. It will quickly cheer your mood. Ask yourself what you are most grateful for and to whom you are most grateful. Then tell them if you can.

Give of Yourself. Helping others is the best antidote to seasonal sadness and self-pity. Make someone else smile and, in the end, you’ll be the one smiling.

Namaste!
