Holistic Healing – When You’re Doing the Healing Rather Than Being the Healing

When you're doing rather then beingNancy Smeltzer, MFA

I imagine that you’re thinking that an international sign for fastening your seat belt might be an unusual illustration for a holistic healing web site. However, I find it to be the perfect metaphor for staying with the State of Being that I wrote about in the last posting. In that blog. There, I talked about how difficult it is to stay with the quiet waiting that is often necessary for the answers that you seek. However, for myself, I found it even harder to even know when I was “doing” rather than “being” as I had refined the sneaky part of doing to an art form so that it was practically impossible for me to detect by myself.

While there is nothing wrong with healing modalities that have techniques as part of their process, I’ve found that the healing goes much faster if you just “be”. By that term, I mean being in the stillness and surrendering to the Divine to do what is in your best and highest good. As I said above, I often had a hard time knowing when I was trying to do something. A former colleague gave me this metaphor for when I was avoiding just being and was subtlely trying to DO. She said that she noted that I would get restless,as if the captain hadn’t turned the seat belt sign off on a plane. That was the perfect sign for me to use when I was slipping into doing, because, as I said, I had gotten really good at being subtle about it. While it’s easy for me to detect in my clients, I find that most healers have trouble working on themselves. That seems to be because after a while, we’ve gotten down to our core issues, having cleared away the easy stuff, and it’s those really hard stuck energy that we don’t want to get rid of.

All of this unconscious resistance to healing is, in my opinion, due to our fear of really, really connecting into the Divine. I’ll talk more about the subject in my next posting, but it does seem counter-intuitive that we wouldn’t want to turn our issues over to a higher power. Yet, many of us seem to persist with the false belief that we’re in control of our lives, much to our detriment.

When you’re using a healing modality, do you find yourself distracted and thinking of other things? It’s in those moments that I find it important to acknowledge that you got distracted, and to go back to where you left off and just continue on.

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
