Why We May Not Want to Heal

You would think that, given the choice, anybody and everybody (yourself included) would make the choice to heal over remaining in their affliction.  The truth of the matter is ............ there may be times when a person (Might be you!) does not want to heal ..... 

What's that I am saying?  Not want to heal!?  Now don't go getting your blood pressure up until you read the explanation.

Having the complex human natures that we do, there sometimes is a subconscious side to us that believes there is a benefit to not healing. There may be an up side to holding on to an illness. This is actuallly a fairly common problem along with avoiding emotional healing.

There are a variety of reasons as to why we believe it may serve us not to heal. It is time to do some deep down soul-searching to determine if any of the following apply in your particular situation. There is much power in awareness.  Awareness and desire are the first steps to healing.

Why We May Not Want To Heal Physically

We can be really good at hiding things from ourselves. We fool ourselves when our conscious mind believes one thing while the subconscious mind believes something else. This is known as "psychological reversal". The following possibilities outline different ways in which we might "psychologically reverse" thereby disallowing ourselves to heal physically.

  • Sympathy - There may be a part of us wanting to play the victim and being ill provides the sympathy we desire.

  • Attention - A part of us may have felt ignored or unnoticed in the past and illness provides the attention we crave.

  • Sense of self-worth - Feelings we may have of low self-esteem or unworthiness are fed by the artificial sense of self-worth that is received from having large amounts of money spent on one's self.

  • Relieved of responsibilities - Illness may provide an "out" when we feel stuck in a situation and/or feel overwhelmed by the responsibilities involved. This may include feeling stuck in a job that you dislike.

  • A lack of desire to live - Our inner self may feel that life is not worth living. Of course, there is an appropriate time to pass on, but this is not what is being referred to.  This is when a person just wants to give up when there is really a fullness of life yet to be experienced.

The Value of Allowing Ourselves to Heal

What is important to understand in all of the above scenarios is that none of these reasons is really in our best interest. Yes - sympathy, attention and feelings of self-worth can be obtained, at least in the short-term, by holding on to an illness. But, how wonderful it would be to feel good enough about ourselves inwardly that we don't have to be fed by outside influences. Instead, we could give sympathy and understanding to others in need and our own feelings of self-worth would naturally increase as we do so.

In many cases that attention and sympathy that is being received is only temporary because people will in time feel that they are being manipulated and will withdraw. Feelings of true self-worth must come from within first and then those around you will give you the genuine caring and attention that is desired.

None of this is meant to be criticism. It seems that we all go through times when we need understanding and attention from others and that is O.K. There are times when we do need to either change our circumstances or our attitudes to lessen the pressures of our responsibilities. And there are times when we feel depressed and need to be lifted up. We are here to help each other.

How Can We Heal?

There is a lot of discouragement in the world.  Many believe that it is not possible to free themselves.  Many feel stuck and that the doors are closed and barred.  This does not have to be so.  There are many options.

You have the option of working with me in doing Emotion Code sessions or Body Code sessions.  The Emotion Code clears trapped energies in your body.  It can also clear your heart wall which is an important starting point.  The Body Code identifies and clears imbalances in the body in 6 main areas; Energies, Toxicity, Circuits and Systems, Pathogens, Misalignments, and Nutrition and Lifestyle.  These can quickly jump-start your healing.

You also have the choice of learning and using healing modalities on your own.   The Emotion CodeEFT/Tapping, The Healing Code, Pure, Therapeutic-grade Essential Oils, Reflexology and ZPoint Process as well as many other modalities give us a way to release ourselves from the emotional and physical prisons we put ourselves in.  They allow us to free ourselves from the past and the negativity holding us back.  The doors open for us to enter into our full potential. Oh, the joy and freedom that lies on the other side!
