Finding Your Heart Tribe in Alternative Healing

Finding Your Heart TribeNancy Smeltzer, MFA

While many of us have birth families, some members of whom we even like, there are others of us who often feel as misfits in our own families. This can be especially true if you follow an alternative healing path, as other family members may feel threatened by your beliefs. So how do you go about finding those with whom you resonate, or as some call, your heart family?

For me, it seems a good place to start would be to access what it is that you really want in your life. What are your core values, on which there are no compromises, and what are some other habits that people have that you could negotiate on? It’s when you know where your place of integrity is that you can value yourself and as a result, others will sense your vibrations, and value you.

Then, for me, the next step is putting out to the Universe your desires and expressing gratitude when those needs and wants are fulfilled. I’ve found that I’m rewarded with more of the same that I want when I let the Universe know how grateful I am that people with whom I resonate are coming my way. The reverse is also true, if I’m cursing my lot in life, then I end up getting more of the same.

I’ve also found it useful to clear out any resistances that I can find that are causing me to hang on to the status quo. I’ve been doing this healing work long enough that I can find those more subtle vibrations (most of the time) that tug on my sleeve and say “That’s not what you really want, Nance”. It took a great deal of practice to get to that point, as I used to ignore those more quiet signs, and would end up getting whomped by a “clue-by-four” that often was very, very painful.

OK, having cleaned up your act as much as possible, start getting out there, and meeting people. You’ll find that you’ll start to recognize those with whom you feel a kindred spirit. Pull them into your life, and work at keeping the connections going. At first, you may have to be the one who does all of the calling or organizing. If it turns out that the other person doesn’t begin to return some efforts on their part after awhile, then move on.

As for myself, I “abandoned” myself at my birth this lifetime, as I was not very sure I wanted to stay. As a result, I’ve been settling for crumbs ever since that people would throw me. Since this is one of my core issues, or one that I came to Earth this time to learn, I’ve spent a long time of doing back-flips for others to get their attention. However,  I’m beginning to realize that there’s a whole world of people from which to choose, so I don’t settle for less than what I deserve.

I’m not saying that your birth family and heart family can’t be one and the same. However, if you find that not to be the case, then perhaps some of the above advice might be useful.

About Nancy Smeltzer

I'm passionate about long distance spiritual and alternative healing, having had a successful practice now for over ten years. My clients work with me over the phone and on Skype from all over the USA and Canada, as well as Switzerland, Russia, and Australia. I specialize in helping people heal their negative repeating patterns of behavior and remove the stuck energy in their unconscious minds. By doing that, they can quit going round and round in circles,. repeating the same mistakes, and move forward to having the life of their dreams. Besides my holistic healing practice, I've also been professionally creating art quilts and other fiber arts for over 30 years. My specialty is contemporary beaded art quilts. On my web site, I bill myself as the "Self Proclaimed Button and Bead Queen of Maryland (USA)." My recent works have images that are based on what I see when I tap into a person's energy field and are called Meditation Gardens. These visionary art pieces are the perfect place for that person to play and meditate. In my spare time, I'm a rabid, avid "dirty nails" gardener, composing scenes with plants. Sometimes, I come inside so dirty that my clothes have to go straight into the washing machine; they're too dirty for the dirty clothes hamper! -The Official Google + site for Nancy Smeltzer
