When I discovered how bamboo grows, I thought it an apt image both for how heart issues develop AND how they heal.

Knowing how heart issues are like bamboo may help you both understand the healing process and be more patient with it.

Bamboo’s growth starts underground, where the rhizome system that supports the canes are developed. For three whole years, the plant establishes itself underground and there is no apparent growth. Absolutely nothing appears to be happening. For three years!

In the fourth year, shoots appear. The bamboo canes grow in height and diameter for only 60 days every spring. After the 60 days, that particular cane will never grow again.

However, because of the rhizome system, the next spring the shoots that come up will grow much taller and faster in those 60 days. After a bamboo grove has been establishing its rhizome system for 5 years, the canes that grow in that fifth year can reach as much as 90 feet (for certain species, in certain conditions)–all in 60 days!

This picture also applies to how heart issues form, and then manifest eventually in our lives in some health, relationship, and/or success issue.

Like the rhizome system that forms underground, memories and beliefs accumulate in the subconscious mind. If Read More→

Does every painful event that happens to us inevitably become a trauma?

The good news is: NO!

To understand how this can be–and more importantly, to prevent a life event from becoming a trauma–you need to understand why and how  something becomes a trauma.

Trauma and UDINS

I’ve written before about life events that become traumatic because they are UDINs: Unexpected, Dramatic, Isolating, and having No resources, recourse, or solutions.

These four elements are what make something traumatic.

Notice that one and a half of the elements of a UDIN are unpreventable.

You can’t control when some crisis will happen, or how.

You can’t control how bad it will be (half of the Dramatic element).

That’s the one and a half you can’t control.

What you can control of the Dramatic part, though, to at least some degree, is how it will affect you.

And you can control whether you will let it Isolate you, and whether you will believe that there are No solutions or resources.

According to Dr. Karl Lehman, there is a pain pathway in the brain that needs to be traveled all the way through in order for a painful event not to become a trauma. If we can go all the way through the pain processing pathway, we “metabolize” the experience and it does not become a trauma that can then get triggered again and again, and cause all kinds of physical, emotional, or relational problems.

The main reason a painful event becomes traumatic is that we feel alone in it. Relationship has been withdrawn. We become disconnected.

Dr. Lehman explains that “because we live with brains that configure all our reality and experiences in relational terms, we must learn to stay relational in the presence of our pain.”

How do we do that?

Staying Relational in the Pain

Many of us grew up in families that themselves never learned this. When they or we were in pain, it led to withdrawal. The “relational circuits” in the brain (RCs) were switched off. If this happened in our experience, we may come to believe that when we’re in pain, love is going to be withdrawn. Thus we turn off to the pain, or we go off by ourselves to try to deal with it.

Which, if we’re to believe the brain science experts, never works.

So how do we stay relational in the pain, so we can actually process it and not let it become a trauma?

Look for Someone Who Knows How to Be With You in Pain

You need someone with whom you feel safe. Someone who has already demonstrated a capacity to be glad to be with you in good times and bad. Someone who can just listen to you and reflect back how you’re feeling without attempting to change anything.

Most people will instinctively try to make you feel better, make the pain go away. You may instinctively turn to something to make you feel better, make the pain go away.

The only way out of the pain, is through it. Preferably with someone else.

Note: That someone can be God. God is always with us, and if you believe his Word, he has promised 14 times never to leave you or forsake you. You can journal or pray your way through the sequence below. (For more help with this, I suggest the book, The Joyful Journey: Listening to ImmanuelYou can also contact me for some Healing Codes. This is a big part of what I do in my Healing Codes Coaching work.)

Let’s say you just lost someone dear to you, and are feeling great grief.

The VCR of Relief

Here the three steps to working through the pain. Again, ideally you will do this in the presence of someone who has the capacity to be with you in this process.

  1. Validation: name the feeling and/or belief you have as a result of the event. “I miss my friend so much. She was like  a mom to me. Who will I go to now when I need the wise, down-to-earth advice she always knew how to give? I have lost so much, so unexpectedly….”  If you’re processing something with someone and they reflect back your words to you with empathy,  you will feel validated and understood. The first step is to stay connected with the experience rather than try to escape or minimize it. Doing this with another person removes the Isolating factor.

2.Comfort: Look for the origin of the negative feeling or belief attached to the event. You may be upset by the event itself, but it may also be triggering an unhealed memory from the past. You may or may not remember what that is, but naming the origin of it as best you know can be helpful.

“This sounds silly, but it reminds me of the time my father accidentally killed my cat when I was young. I used to tell my cat my problems, and I never felt she judged me.” So now we’re dealing with more than losing the friend; we’re dealing with an unhealed memory from the past, that amplifies the pain in the current memory. Just realizing this can be comforting. It can help you begin to make sense out of the pain. “Oh, this is not just about this incident.” (And you will want to address both incidents with The Healing Codes.)

Or maybe it is just about this incident, because in itself it’s so huge.  “I’ve never lost someone this close to me before. I don’t know how to handle it.” Understanding the level of intensity of the emotion is also part of comfort.

3. Repatterning, or Returning to Joy.  When the first two things have happened–validation and comfort–you are then open to new perspectives on the situation.  A skilled listener will know just how to help you come to the new perspective yourself, rather than trying to give advice, fix you or make the pain go away. This is where you realize you are not without resources, thus eliminating the N-No recourse or resources–of the UDIN.

The last step in the Pain Processing Pathway is finding meaning in the experience, so that it leads to wisdom and maturity.

This process can take time, or it can be fairly quick, depending on the intensity and scope of the painful event. But when you deliberately reject Isolation and seek help from someone who can Validate, Comfort, and help you Return to Joy, you need not fear that the event will become a trauma that you never get over. You will emerge stronger, wiser and more mature.

 

Are you a person who is very spiritual by nature but you feel like you have to keep that part of you separate from your business success?
Most likely that’s because you are what Business Miracles Mentor, Heather Dominick, refers to as a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur. Not sure what that is? You can take the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur quiz here.
You can also join Heather this Wednesday in a webinar class that will address the things that can trip you up in business.

 

I find Heather inspiring, refreshing, and encouraging. She has helped me to gain confidence that, as she says, HSEs are uniquely positioned to help other people if we can learn to go with our HS strengths and not get snagged by the things that can trip us up….
Things like:
  • what to do when you feel overwhelmed so it doesn’t stop you in your tracks
  • what you need to prioritize during your business day (so it feels good, gets done and generates income)
  • who you need to speak to in order to attract your ideal clients (and how it doesn’t need to feel all intimidating)
Reserve your seat here (even if you can’t make the live class, as there may be a recording).
Heather says that for Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs it can be tempting, when it all feels too much, to shut down, contract and try to protect yourself at all costs (or go into chaotic, panic, road runner mode). When what’s actually happening is you are receiving a call to OPEN UP, not give up.
It’s an opportunity to consider the possibility that there might be another way.
That’s exactly what she’ll be teaching you on this LIVE webinar class and it’s FREE. Click here to register.

Question about using The Healing Codes:

 I have no trouble identifying an emotional issue, however I can’t always link the feeling to a specific memory.  Is it OK to do the Healing Code on the emotional issue alone?”

You do not absolutely need to link the emotion to a specific early memory. Your heart will find and heal the issues that need to be healed.

That said, I will add that if you can find an early memory, it seems to speed healing. The more specific you can be with The Healing Code, the quicker the healing seems to happen. (That’s why custom codes are so powerful; they are specific to your particular issue. ) But you never want  to force anything with The Healing Code; that’s counter-productive.

At the beginning of your Healing Code session, give yourself a moment for any memories to surface. If they don’t, do the Code on the current emotional issue. As you work with The Healing Code and heal, you may find it easier to access the earlier memories.

Your heart may be protecting you from remembering early memories. Many of my clients also find that after working with The Healing Codes for a time, memories that have healed come to the surface. If there’s no emotional charge on that memory, then it usually means it’s healed. One of the wonderful benefits of The Healing Code is you “get your life back” as these healed memories surface.

One client had a very key early memory with several negative elements that needed to be healed. Interestingly, once the negative parts of the memory healed, it became a very positive memory–one she even started using for her “love picture”!

That’s all The Healing Code does, by the way: heals the negative aspects of the pictures and feelings. Yet when that happens, as the book explains, many amazing things can happen.

I began doing The Healing Codes in June 2007, and by the summer of 2015 I wrote a blog about my healing journey to that date. Here’s what I wrote, and then you’ll get an update at the end.

This summer marked 8 years of my doing Healing Codes, and I thought I’d give you an idea of what kinds of healing I’ve experienced over those 8 years.

I do Healing Codes every day, rarely skipping a day (because I feel it when I do), usually at least twice daily.

All I had back in 2007 was The Healing Codes Manual, which I waited several years to get from the time I had first heard about The Healing Codes. All that was available then was the $700 package.

When I started doing The Healing Codes, I was on medications for asthma, allergies, thyroid, hormone replacement, and another condition I’d rather not name.

I started working through The Twelve Categories (unforgiveness, harmful actions, unhealthy beliefs, love, joy, peace, etc.–see chapter 11 of The Healing Code, or the Heart Issues Finder.) When I got to the Peace category, I had a major “healing response.” I didn’t know it at the time; I thought it was food poisoning. I didn’t have a coach.

Three months after that, I had a TIA, or mini-stroke. I recovered completely, but the tests showed the TIA was caused by a PFO (hole in the heart), so I was enrolled in a clinical trial. The details of that story can be seen on my video, but the upshot was that apparently The Healing Codes had closed up the hole. I was taken off all blood thinners within a few months.

In that first year, all kinds of physical things appeared, then disappeared without treatment: ovarian cysts, breast lumps, worsened allergy symptoms, and probably other things I can’t remember. I was always running to the doctor for this and that, until I learned more about how this energy medicine worked. Once I understood that these physical manifestations could be signs of healing, not disease, I started to wait awhile to see if things would resolve. They did.

So what kind of healing have I experienced over these years?

Have you felt misunderstood much if not all all of your life, and/or like you didn’t fit in?

Do you feel you have a more finely -tuned nervous system than most people?

If so, you might be part of the 15-20% of the population with the trait of being Highly Sensitive.

Understanding what this means may well provide the missing piece to understanding yourself that can make all the difference–in your health, your relationships, your own sense of self.

So what does it mean to be “Highly Sensitive”? Read More→

Here’s a totally different view of symptoms than I’ve ever heard.

If it’s accurate, it turns everything about the way we think of illness and disease on its head.

Most of all, it gives great hope to anyone who has been diagnosed with a disease or condition.

This comes from an interview with Dr. Craig Weiner from the Autoimmune Vitality conference. (Part 1 has ended, but you can still sign up for Part 2, which starts on May 21.)   I highly recommend listening to him–or getting the whole series, which has been fantastic.

(At least it’s really helping me, since I’ve been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. My condition got out of whack when the A-V vial in my HALO went bad, and I didn’t realize it. Now that I’m using a good vial, I can tell my system is rebalancing.)

Dr. Weiner is, among other things, a Level 2 META-Health Practitioner certified through the International META-Medicine Association, IMMA.

I’d never heard of META-Health before, but it’s totally compatible with the the philosophy behind The Healing Codes:

  • Your body/mind is highly intelligent.
  • Specific stress trigger, emotions and beliefs affect your specific organ tissues.
  • Healing goes through specific points and phases.

This latter point is what I want to tell you about.

According to META-Health, healing goes through specific points, levels and phases. You start with the natural state of the body: health, with normal day activity and night relaxation.

Then perhaps some kind of stress trigger happens, such as a trauma or a UDIN (Unexpected, Dramatic, Isolating, No Resources/Solution type incident). The trigger can also be a conditioned reflex based on some inherited trauma in cellular memory (what we call “hidden memories,” which could be in utero, generational, a birth trauma and very early memories that are recorded in the cell’s information energy pattern).

When this happens, you move into the Stress Phase, where the Sympathetic Nervous system (fight/flight/freeze) becomes dominant, and there is some kind of conflict (often internal and unconscious).

Here’s the interesting part. If you introduce some kind of Regeneration Trigger, such as The Healing Codes or some intervention that truly addresses the situation at its core, you can move into Regeneration Phase A. Here the “stress” is passive, your Parasympathetic Nervous System (rest and repair) system becomes dominant.

Here’s the kicker, though: This Regeneration Phase A is when the symptoms can show up!

And in fact, they may get even worse. In META-Health they call this the Healing Peak. (Healing Codes jargon calls it a Healing Response.) You may feel like you’re getting worse, but you’re actually getting better!

In fact, the next phase is Regeneration Phase B, where the PNS is again dominant, and excretion–getting rid of the problem–actually happens.

Phase 8 is the Return to Health, in which your system is auto-regulating and organ function becomes normalized. This often happens in waves, by the way. It’s not a steady, even process.

Which leads finally to the last stage: the Return to Health and normal day activity and night relaxation. You have plenty of energy in the day, and you sleep well and get restored at night.

So in this system, as with The Healing Codes, we’re always looking for that original stressor–that trauma, that Original Event that caused the brain to register a stress response. When we address that, the body begins to move toward health, and as it does so, physical things come up.

We think we’re getting sick, but we’re really getting better at the point when the symptoms show up.

A fever is a good example. When some infectious agent enters the body, the body responds with a fever to raise the temperature to kill off the attacker. You think you’re sick, and maybe take some aspirin or ibuprofen, but that actually blocks what the body is trying to do.

If we can respect the body’s wisdom, find and address the root cause (the trauma or trigger), we begin this regeneration process.

Isn’t that wonderful news? Doesn’t that give you great hope? When the symptoms show up–that’s when your healing has started!

It does take a big paradigm shift, though, for many people.

All I can say is, “Try thinking this way.” Try going for the original trauma by asking, as we counsel with The Healing Codes, “How do I feel about this condition?” Then trace that feeling back to other times you felt this way (about anything), and use The Healing Codes and prayer to heal that negative memory, image, or belief.

META Health, the New German Medicine, functional medicine, energy medicine–all these approaches seek to find and heal the original cause, rather than try to make symptoms disappear.

Will you trust your body’s and your heart’s innate intelligence, and look to heal the SOURCE of whatever bothers you? I hope you will.

And if you need some help with this, I suggest you sign up for the free “Getting Started with The Healing Codes” and visit my site at https://healingcodescoaching.com to find out more. For more personalized help, consider getting a Custom Healing Code and coaching to find those “original events.”

Healing Lessons From a Splinter

By · Comments (0)

So I noticed something painful about my finger.

Drat, it was a splinter. I worked at it to get it out, but I wasn’t sure I got it all.

Big clue I didn’t: Pain continued.

I shined the HALO on it, using the Pain vial, the SuperSystem vial, and the Facial vial.

Still some pain. Probably the splinter was still there. Very hard to see, though.

I tried to ignore it, aside from shining HALO on it.

Still pain.

Finally, I got my husband to help me, because there was no way I could get this out myself (my little finger on my right hand). A magnifying glass confirmed there was indeed some dark splinter in there.

After much pain gouging the thing out with a needle, we finally got it.

Or so I thought.

10th Annual Tapping Summit-Rewire Your Brain for SuccessThe 10th Annual Tapping Summit has just started, and it brings to mind a question that many have asked me: How does tapping compare to The Healing Codes?

I wrote an article on this, but the short answer is: they are complementary, because they address different systems.

When some event in your current life “triggers” an unhealed albeit usually unconscious memory, a block comes up in your bio-energetic field, in the meridian system.

Tapping very quickly and easily removes that energy block, so you feel better. Tapping definitely can release negative energy, and is especially good for Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) who can so easily take on other people’s energy unwittingly. (I’m glad to see that some of the presenters will address this.)

Will the tapping provide a permanent fix? Read More→

Did you know that there’s a place in your brain that literally lights up when you’re with someone who is glad to see you, glad to be with you?

And that when these “joy centers” or “relational circuits” light up,  a certain hormone–oxytocin–releases into your body and does all kinds of wonderful things to you, including promoting healing?

When your Relational Circuits are ON, you can live in love, joy, and peace, even if your circumstances are not so ideal.

When they are Off, you are in fear and stress mode. Then another hormone–cortisol–takes over, and that does bad things to your body over time.

So how do you know whether your Relational Circuits (RCs) are on or off?

Here’s how you feel when they’re OFF:

  1. You just want to make a problem, person or feeling go away.
  2. You don’t want to listen to what others feel or say.
  3. Your mind is “locked onto” something upsetting.
  4. You don’t want to be connected to ___ (someone you usually like).
  5. You just want to get away, or fight, or freeze.
  6. You more aggressively interrogate, judge and try to fix others.

If you answered yes to any of these, your Relational Circuits are OFF.

And having your RCs off “is like trying to see with your eyes closed or driving your car at night with the headlights off!” No fun–even dangerous.

So how do you turn them back on, so that you see the person as more important than the problem, and can operate from love, respect, humility, and peace?

There are things you can do with your body to actually help you “wake up” your RCs.

For instance, you can:

Heavy Metals SummitI have to admit, I’m a bit “summited out.”

Maybe you are, too.

But the “Heavy Metals Summit” that started on Monday, I’ve just have had to make time for. (Or else buy.)

Here’s why. My husband is in the process of having 6 or 7 mercury amalgam fillings removed by a biological dentist. She is being very, very careful.

After other summits I’ve attended and research I’ve done, I am sure my husband’s symptoms are due to heavy metal toxicity, at least from the mercury, if not other things as well.

I learned from Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt from another summit that the trifecta of heavy metals, mold, and Wi-Fi signals all exacerbate each other.

The Wi-Fi makes the mold in the air more toxic. Simultaneously, if you’ve got any mercury amalgam fillings in your mouth, the Wi-Fi also releases mercury vapor much more quickly, and it goes straight to the brain. Wi-Fi also does something with some enzymes in the body that normally would enable the body to detoxify from heavy metals and mold.

There is a video called “smoking tooth” on YouTube that shows how mercury vapor from a slight abrasion of an amalgam filling can release vapors into the mouth–and the brain.

I asked two dentists and two doctors about this, whether it was valid, and they had no response for me. One just shrugged and changed the subject.

When I was a child, we used to play with the mercury from a broken thermometer. Do I have mercury in my system from that? No doubt.

Even if you’ve never out of ignorance played with mercury, or had any “silver” fillings, it’s hard to escape these toxins, unfortunately. They are in our air, water, cosmetics, food.

What we can do is empower our bodies to deal with them.

This summit will give many ideas how to do that.

Know that doing Healing Codes to get rid of the stress of unconscious negative memories is important. In fact, Nikki Gratrix will be a featured speaker, and she talks about how unhealed emotional issues block the body’s ability to heal.

I am also using the Halo Detox vial quite often. I believe it is helping both my husband and me, though I have to admit, I did have some “healing responses” from it. Evidence that it’s working, though! (For more information about

I encourage you to register for this summit, and want you to know that if you should choose to buy it, the half-price sale ends Feb. 5. There will be a replay over the weekend, I believe.

(So if you’re not into the Superbowl, you can learn how to improve your health!)

Foods that Heal Your Gut
Here’s something very practical I learned from the Summit.

First, if you have a healthy gut, that goes a long way to protecting you and helping you detox. We are largely made up of microbes, called the microbiome, and these are epigenetical agents that can switch bad genes off and good genes on.

Some foods feed the good gut bacteria; these are called prebiotic foods. I learned from the Heavy Metals Summit (think it was one of the ones from Day 1, possibly Tom O’Bryan’s), that root vegetables are prebiotic foods. He suggested 1-2 servings of root vegetables. I have a medley of root veggies roasting in the oven even as I type! (If you want the recipe, go here.)

Fermented foods such as kimchi (just tried it–love it!), sauerkraut and other fermented foods actually add the good gut bacteria. He suggested getting as many different kinds of fermented foods as you can, and rotate every day, taking a forkful at least a day. (I usually have some at lunch.)

That talk was a godsend to me, because I had gone to the natural foods store to find probiotics, and left without buying anything, overwhelmed a bit by the choices and the prices. I’d much rather take O’Bryan’s suggestions and get the good stuff from my foods. I already feel a difference!
