Do you know your purpose in life?

Health experts and researchers say that knowing one’s purpose in life is a key factor in longevity.  It’s also vital if you’re fighting disease. In The Healing Code, coauthor Dr. Ben Johnson shared how his sense of calling and purpose helped him overcome ALS.

If you aren’t sure yet of your unique purpose in life, consider this exercise.

Ask yourself: When I am at my best, what am I doing? When I have felt the most satisfied with myself, what did I just do?

What you did–the action–is going to be a verb.  That verb often can describe your very essence.

Buckminster Fuller said, “God is a verb.” That is biblically accurate. When God revealed himself to Moses, he said he was the ultimate “be” verb: “I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14).

God’s verb is “I AM.”

Descartes is famous for saying, “I think, therefore I am.” His verb was “think.”

Your verb may come to you in a flash … or you may have to think about it for a while.  Here’s the key question:

What is the thread that runs through most of what you

do, that encompasses the essence not only of what you

do, but who you are?

Many people I’ve discussed this with know their verb quickly. But don’t feel bad if you do not know. Just keep pondering the above questions, until you begin to see it. Ask people who know you well: “What is it that you most value in me?” Often the Verb is something you do so naturally, you’re not even aware of what it is. You think everyone can just ____ (fill in the blank with what comes naturally to you), but they can’t.

My verb is “connect.” I love to connect people with ideas that will inspire them, enlighten them, change them.

I love to connect people with other people who will inspire, teach, encourage, motivate or enlightened them.

And I love to connect people with resources that will make their life easier and better in some way.

This is the thread that runs through everything I have done in my many-faceted career. When I was a book publishing coach and consultant, that’s what I was all about. And now as a healing coach, that is what people say they value most in me. In fact, I did these things in this very post–without even trying! Did you notice?

Your verb will characterize not only your career/work, but your relationships as well. As a parent, connect is what instinctively do. I also find myself trying to connect friends with ideas, people and resources that will make their lives better.

So that’s my verb. What’s yours?

Take a few moments to reflect on this.

It’s at the heart of what you have to offer the world, after all. It is your unique purpose for being on the planet, what you’ve been wired to contribute. And the best part is–your verb is what comes most naturally to you!

If you would like help identifying your verb, and removing any blocks to expressing it, consider booking a coaching session or more to explore this vital source of health and happiness.

Dreams: Clues to Your Heart?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Have you ever had a dream that somehow seemed important, but you didn’t know why?

It may be a message from your heart about what needs to be healed.

I have long been fascinated by dreams, ever since college days when I studied Carl Jung’s ideas on dreams and the symbols of the “collective unconscious.” I was a literature major, so images and symbols fascinated me.

Now, as a Healing Codes Practitioner, I hear from clients who sometimes tell me their dreams, and I’m struck by how often the dreams give clues to heart issues that need to be healed.

For instance, one woman shared this dream:I was a young girl and was attacked by a tiger, but it seemed to only give me a tiny surface scratch on my upper arm.  Later in the dream, I lifted up my sleeve and the wound was HUGE and festering and disgusting and dangerous and I  knew it would kill me if I didn’t heal it!  And in the dream I had not been at all aware what was going on under my shirt sleeve!  I thought the ‘wound’ was ‘nothing’ until I ‘uncovered’ the wound and learned it was actually horribly infected and was killing me!  My mother and brother were in that dream (key players in my hurtful childhood).  Obviously, it was full of symbolism about the pictures of the heart (things that seemed small when they happened are really festering and deadly if not dealt with using the Healing Codes!).  Pretty cool, huh?”

This client was becoming adept at seeing the connection and receiving the message from her heart. In fact, she also shared this (see if you can make a connection between this and her dream): “Interestingly, I am suddenly able to do the ‘kindness’ code in the Healing Codes manual!  I was in complete denial about that one up until after I had done your last custom code!  Suddenly, it was absolutely clear to me that the ‘kindness’ issue was one of my MAJOR problems!  Suddenly, I could see how all the ‘problems’ connected with the ‘kindness’ issue DO apply to me perfectly!  SO STRANGE that I could NOT see that before!  I just refused to acknowledge it and refused to see how any of that applied to me.  It’s obvious now. So I have been focusing on the ‘kindness’ code from the HC manual since the last custom code ‘expired’ and I can REALLY feel things happening inside of me!”

After she had the dream, and had used the custom Healing Code I gave her, this client was able to break through and work on an issue that may well have been at the core of her most troublesome issues.

See how it all works? A custom code “jump starts” healing to the point where the heart can begin to trust that, if it opens the door and lets some memories out, they will be healed rather than cause more hurt. (As The Healing Code explains, the role of the heart is to protect you from further emotional pain.) Once some memories are healed, the heart offers up more. Those are healed, and you begin a beautiful spiral upwards toward fullness of life.

Often a client will tell me that they have no memories. Here is where dreams can be especially helpful.  Here’s the key: Use your dream as the “memory” you are healing. Identify the feelings from the dream, and insert in the prayer of intention, where you would normally put the memory: “. . .  from the dream about. . . .”

If you have had recurring dreams, pay attention! Try healing “the [feeling(s)” from the dreams about. . .” Again, these are clues from the heart about something that needs to be healed.

If you feel “stuck” in any way, start telling your heart that you will pay attention to your dreams. Try to remember them when you awake, and even write down any dream that feels especially vivid.

Feelings and images are the things to pay attention to. This is not at all about “if you dream about such and such it means this will happen.” It’s about what feelings your dream calls up, and the images from the dream. They are images that will mean something to you. For instance, the “tiger” in my client’s dream could be any number of things. We had to explore what that symbol meant for her. If you had a similar dream, the tiger might mean something completely different.

So welcome your dreams, and the healing that follows!

How important is prayer to healing?

For me, prayer is an integral part of healing. I often say that for me, The Healing Codes are a combination of prayer, meditation, and therapy–with God as the Wonderful Counselor.

Also, I have found that people who have a strong relationship with God seem to heal faster and deeper than people who don’t.

Yet, one of my clients who is an avowed atheist is also healing–rather quickly, in fact. At least, he healed a “heart wall” that was (metaphorically) five feet thick in one week.

How can this be?

I do believe all healing comes from God. But, as I mentioned in another post about Jesus’ parable of the farmer planting a seed and it grows, “he knows not how,” so the God who “makes the sun to shine on the good and the evil” has put the principle of healing into every living creature. It is what is known as “common grace,” and is built into all living things.

That’s why The Healing Codes work for anyone, regardless of their beliefs. It’s very simple, really. Stress is what incapacitates the body’s immune system. The Healing Code removes stress from the body. Then the immune system can take over its God-given ability to heal almost anything.

The Healing Code does incorporate prayer. You can’t properly do a Healing Code without saying “the prayer of intention.” Even if you believe you’re asking the body itself to “find, open and heal all the negative images, beliefs, and cellular memories” that are the source of your issue, you are reaching beyond your conscious self and acknowledging there’s another intelligence at work here.

Personally, I believe you might as well pray and trust the Creator of the body rather than the body itself, but reality is what it is whether you believe it or not. I’ve noticed that, if you go against the grain of the universe, you’re bound to get splinters of some sort.

Me, I want to pray to the God That Is, whether I understand him fully or not (and no doubt I don’t, or I’d be on a par, wouldn’t I?). As I do, I find I understand just a little more.

And I heal of things I didn’t even know I had to heal. When the light shines, it exposes (and then heals) all sorts of things I never even knew were there…..

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. Read More→

I am super excited about the new docuseries, The Healing Miracle, about stem cells and how they can help our own bodies heal themselves.

I’ve written often about my belief that the body can heal itself. Here is yet another possible way it can do that.

Since I haven’t seen this series yet myself–it’s brand new–I can’t say what it’s about yet.

But I will be watching and taking notes, because I’ve long believed that the body can heal itself, if only we can find ways to help it do that.

And I’ve wondered if somehow, The Healing Codes stimulate stem cells, and that’s why so many different maladies heal when people do Healing Codes regularly.

I’ve pondered the possible relationship between stem cells and the vagus nerve, so I did some research on that. More on that below, but first, let’s look at the vagus nerve connection. Read More→

How the Body Heals: Two Views

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Which view of the body do you hold?

Mechanical View

image of old rusting car, to illustrate the mechanical view we have of our bodiesThe body is like a machine.

Constant use eventually wears it out. Things start to malfunction, and then you need to get in there and either replace the parts or alter the internal structure somehow (usually through medications) to alleviate bothersome symptoms. That’s what healing mostly is: alleviating symptoms. The goal is to function. Help must come from the outside, through the intervention of medical procedures and medications.

Oh, and there’s a blueprint and predetermines what will go wrong. It’s called your genes. Your DNA determines what will happen to you and there’s not much you can do about it. If you’ve got the gene for cancer, or Alzheimer’s, or heart disease–oh well, do the best you can to stave it off, but it’s inevitable you’ll get it.

Take the medication to relieve the symptoms, and put up with the side effects–they’re inevitable. Have the replacements done, and do your best to return to normal.

Eventually, the system wears out. That’s called aging. You can’t do much about it, except keep on replacing parts and alleviating symptoms until the whole system finally shuts down.

Organic View

The body is an alive, dynamic, intelligent organism that innately knows how to heal itself.

image of green plant, to illustrate my view that our bodies are not like a machine, but a living organismIt’s not indestructible, but it is resilient. It constantly seeks life. It malfunctions because toxic elements are added to it, which it has to expend a lot of energy dealing with. This distracts it from expending energy to heal and grow.

If you reduce the toxins (which can be physical or emotional, what I call “heart issues”), and you give it certain raw materials to work with (light, water, air, movement, good nutrition), it knows what to do. It thrives.

It can even overcome any bad genetic programming. That’s because it’s not so much about the genetic code, as about whether that gene will be switched on or off. That’s called epigenetics.  (Check out this fascinating PBS Nova program on DNA.) Given the right support, the body can overcome diseases and pathogens.

Which picture do you have of how the body heals?

As a client of mine said, “There’s a big difference between running from death and pursuing life.”

The reason I am so supportive of both The Healing Codes and now, the HALO Light System, is that both enable you to pursue life.

The Healing Codes support the body’s natural healing ability by removing the stress of unconscious negative images, wrong beliefs, and painful memories. When this stress is removed, the body has more resources to move into healing and growth mode.

The HALO Light System  gives the body essences from a huge array of life-giving botanicals, so that the body has sort of a library of things to choose from to heal itself of whatever is challenging it.

I know the above is somewhat simplistic. There is a place for surgery, medications, and the like. But I’ve used both approaches. I’ve made my choice–to pursue life–and I enjoy better health and more energy now than I did 20 years ago.

What about you?

Give Thanks for–Bee Stings?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Several months ago, I posted about the incredible stresses my family has experienced all at once.

That was back in December.

Things only got worse after that. Much worse. And they’ve continued until … now.

I honestly don’t know where I’d be without The Healing Codes during this time. That, and the things I mentioned in that earlier post.

It’s been a life-lab showing me exactly how The Healing Codes help you deal with stress.

The Healing Codes don’t do anything to prevent the kinds of outward stresses I’m facing (death of a loved one, financial pressures, major upheavals in schedule and living, technology hassles, betrayal by friends, legal issues, blah blah blah).

What they do for me is keep me current with reality. Because so much has already healed, I wasn’t “triggered” as much as I would otherwise have been.

When I was triggered–when something bothered me way more than the situation warranted–then I looked for the “heart issue” to heal.

When you’re healed, you have much more energy to deal with current reality, and you’re dealing ONLY with current reality.

So, for instance, if you’re rejected by someone (or you perceive you are), if you have unhealed rejection memories the recent rejection will feel like you’re being stung by a hive of bees. Each “bee sting” would be an unhealed memory of rejection.

But when those memories are healed, that recent rejection will be just like one bee sting. Unpleasant, but you can deal with it.

As these multiple stresses come at me, I can tell which ones are triggering an unhealed memory and which are not. I go to work on addressing the unhealed memories that get triggered. And before long, I am back to dealing just with the current stressor.

The one bee sting.

And either way, I thank God.

I thank God when I am able to deal with just an issue at hand. I thank Him for the healing I’ve received already in that area.

When I do get triggered, I thank God for the stressor because it is uncovering an issue that can now be healed.

Gratitude is a beautiful thing. I speeds healing. I encourage you to add it to your healing work.

MELT Feel Better Now"I feel so good in my body!"

This is what people have reported to me after they do MELT, and I concur.

For me, it's a new feeling.

After doing just some of the MELT techniques for a couple of months, I feel better, enjoy more energy, and have seen some symptoms abate. I had begun to experience headaches and neck pain, no doubt from sitting at a computer all day. (Sitting, it turns out, is pretty hazardous to your health.) These symptoms are drastically improving the more I use this technique.

So it's time I told everyone about this method that I believe is a perfect complement to The Healing Codes.

It is called the MELT Method, developed by Sue Hitzman, in her book by that name. It is "a breakthrough self-treatment system to eliminate chronic pain, erase the signs of aging, and feel fantastic in just 10 minutes a day!"

OK, maybe that sounds too good to be true?

That's why I took a while to tell you about it. Even though I got immediate results the first (and every) time I did it, I wanted to read the book, give it time, hear from other people who have tried it. But the results are so wonderful, I had to tell you about it now.

So what does MELT do? Simply put, through some gentle techniques using special balls and/or a roller, it rehydrates the connective tissues in your body.

I wrote this on Mother’s Day, but you can do this custom healing Code for “mother issues” any time.

Whether or not you’re a mother yourself, you had a mother.

And, because no mother is a perfect mother, very likely you have “heart issues” connected to negative memories of your mother.

In addition, if you’re also a mother yourself, you may have heart issues connected to your own mothering. Again, because none of us is perfect, we can all look back on things we wish we’d done differently.

So I would like to give you a custom Healing Code for any and all negative memories you have concerning “mother issues,” whether they concern your mother or your own mothering. Read More→

Healing can happen slowly, over a long period of time.

Or it can happen suddenly.

Two true life stories illustrate.

First, there's Vinny.

Back in July 2010, Vinny's grandmother got in touch with me about her grandson, who was 9 at the time. Vinny had an inoperable tumor on his brain stem. It was benign, but still very dangerous.

I began getting custom Healing Codes for Vinny then. I also reached out to this community to ask other people who felt led, to pray and do Vinny's Healing Codes for him.

The full story is here.

I knew I was taking a risk putting the story and updates out there. What if Vinny's tumor got worse, not better with The Healing Codes? What if it all failed? Read More→
