Invitation to Push Back the Darkness

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Are you bothered by what’s going on in the world?

Perhaps you, like me, find that Emotional Inflammation flares strongly. (Emotional Inflammation: a state “not unlike post-traumatic stress disorder, but one that stems from simply living in today’s tumultuous world.”) The mass shooting in a Texas grammar school–horrific in itself—only added to the other troubling ongoing world events. War in Ukraine. Warnings of impending food shortages, and maybe another pandemic. Etc. etc.

And, to top it all off, four events springing up in my personal life underscored that evil’s presence is everywhere.

It can make you feel powerless. Hopeless. Paralyzed with fear.

When I feel powerless, I connect and align with the Source of all power. I prayed.

As I prayed, an idea formed.

What if I created an opportunity for people of faith to unite in prayer, while doing a Coach-Guided Healing Code, to push back the darkness?

I’ve already witnessed, again and again, the power of combined intention.

I’ve already seen that there is one prayer God always seemed to answer.

So why not unite to pray that prayer, and add a custom, coach-guided Healing Code as we do?

No one has to do The Healing Code part, by the way. I want you to share this with people who might not be familiar with The Healing Codes, but who do want to pray. Those unfamiliar with The Healing Codes will be pointed to resources that will explain it and show how to do it, if they care to learn.

The Healing Codes are simply a tool that clears the negative energy at a quantum level, which I believe amplifies the power of prayer. It’s an energetic technology that makes things manifest in the physical world, faster and easier—like using the remote garage door opener instead of getting out of your car to open the garage door. The frequency-based technology that sends a signal to open the door makes that task much easier than opening the door without it, but neither one is “morally” better than the other.

 Using The Healing Codes with prayer is like turning up the speakers in a stereo system: you need the sound in the first place (that’s the prayer part), but then you can turn up the speakers to create more powerful sound (in this analogy, to amplify the frequency of the prayer on that energetic level, so that results in the physical world are more easily manifested).

The authors of Emotional Inflammation suggest one way to regain emotional equilibrium during anxious times is to direct your energy into thoughtful, deliberate action. That is what this event will be. We will unite our intention, our faith in God’s power, and direct it into the various spheres of life, from politics and government to the educational system to the media and more.

If you are interested in joining this prayer event, sign up here so that I can give you more details. Signing up will also give you access to download the recording, so that you can pray and do this Healing Code again and again.

An Empowering Way to Read the News

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Do you watch the news constantly—or not at all?

The continuous news cycle—especially these days—can give one a massive case of Emotional Inflammation, which the authors of that book called a sort of PTSD characterized by what one client called “a dark cloud of energy” around her.

I admit—I never used to watch or even keep up with the news at all. It just felt like too much; I’d always get a bad case of Emotional Inflammation.

Now I’ve found a better way.

First of all, I never watch the news; I only read the news. Images tend to stick in the mind and heart, and are much harder to filter than thoughts.

I skim a wide variety of sources. News sources are so polarized these days, you have to read widely to come to something close to the truth.

Because of my training in subtle energy testing, perhaps it’s easier for me to sense the lies. I can feel it in my body. That helps.

What I do to combat the Emotional Inflammation is to use the news as a springboard for prayer.

I pray this one simple prayer: “God, shine your life-giving light into this [name of situation], to expose evil, reveal truth, and point our feet to the path of peace.”

When I read the news, especially now, I’m always looking for evidence of that prayer being answered. I rejoice when I see answers. I keep praying this prayer into the dark situations I see.

This practice goes a long way to mitigate Emotional Inflammation and keep me in a state of hope, peace, and even joy when I see what seem like answers to this prayer.

But it’s not always enough, especially for a Highly Sensitive Person who picks up on energy easily. So I always include “emotional inflammation” in my own Healing Codes practice.

I invite you to do the same. There is a custom Healing Code for Emotional Inflammation on the Navigating the Times page, just for you. (I ask that you sign up so I can alert you to when I update the page with new resources.)

And if you need help healing the heart issues that come up from living in these unprecedented times, check out my coaching at HealingCodesCoaching.com.

I don’t know about you, but the events of the past few weeks–no, months–have given me quite a case of “emotional inflammation.”

I’ve been writing about “emotional inflammation” and how these troubling times can literally affect us physically. The negative energy is all around us, and we can’t escape it.

Polarization on so many levels, uncertainty on so many levels, job loss, the pandemic and everything that goes with it these  days, social media nastiness (which I avoid totally), natural disasters, the fall of Afghanistan, the loss of freedom on so many levels in so many ways. Even if you limit your news intake, as I do, you still can’t avoid the negative energy all around.

For some of us, especially if we have the trait of High Sensitivity, the energy is palpable: we feel it in our bodies.

One client said recently she sensed a “dark energy cloud” around her. Yep, that’s a good way to describe Emotional Inflammation.

Authors Dr. Lise Van Susteren and Stacey Colino say in their book, Emotional Inflammation, that it’s a state “not unlike post-traumatic stress disorder, but one that stems from simply living in today’s tumultuous world.”

That book was published in March 2020–right before “all this” became worse. It’s even more relevant now. Read More→

Why Healing Your Heart Matters

Posted by: | Comments (0)

You don’t need me to tell you that we live in very troubling times. It’s all around us, and we can’t escape it. Political polarization, uncertainty, job loss, the pandemic, social media nastiness (which I avoid totally), natural disasters, racial injustice, violence. Even if you limit your news intake, as I do, you still can’t avoid the negative energy all around.

For some of us, especially if we have the trait of High Sensitivity, the energy is palpable; we may even feel it physically.

Authors Dr. Lise Van Susteren and Stacey Colino wrote a book about it, calling it Emotional Inflammation. It’s a state “not unlike post-traumatic stress disorder, but one that stems from simply living in today’s tumultuous world.”

Some symptoms include sleep problems, hyperactivity, persistent grief, or inescapable worry about the future.

In such a climate as ours now, we need to be especially intentional about our own healing. Because healing the heart matters. Read More→

Distorted Thinking Running Rampant

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The events rocking the world at this time, especially the U.S., are staggering.

I have felt deep pain in my heart space over all that is happening. So much pain, loss, heartbreak. Evil exposed (this is a good thing, but so difficult to witness). Injustice and violence.

The latter two especially make me feel physically ill. I learned recently that there’s a name for this stress that can affect us even physically, that feels almost like post-traumatic stress. It’s the pain that stems from taking in the energy of a tumultuous world (and, for people of color, the energy of passive and active discrimination and racism), and it now has a name: “emotional inflammation.” You can listen to a podcast about this here, or check out the book by Dr. Lise Van Susteren and Stacey Colino here. It helped me to understand how much we are all affected by what’s going on in the world.

(For the 20% with the trait of High Sensitivity, emotional inflammation is almost unavoidable; we take in so much more, and process it at such a deep level.)

The problem is, there are many narratives out there. So many nuances to an issue. So many people twisting the facts to fit their own narrative (or ignoring key facts). I feel mentally and emotionally exhausted just thinking about making my way through all of it to the truth.

But I am committed to doing so, through prayer, as God leads. I want to be part of the solution, not the problem.

One thing I notice, among the maelstrom of media, social and otherwise, is how rampant the dysfunctional thinking is behind so much of the narratives. When a friend sent me a link to a very helpful graphic on “unhelpful thinking styles,” I began to apply it not only to my life, but to what I was hearing and reading. Read More→

Heal Yourself As Well as the Collective?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I am seeing an interesting phenomenon with my clients and friends, especially those with the trait of High Sensitivity: it seems like somehow we are all taking on a bit of the overall energetic “spillage” from all that’s going on in the world right now.

How this shows up in clients varies, but many of us are feeling things like “heartache, anxiety, grief” as well as the fear, loss of control, etc.

Some clients are finding that issues, including physical issues, that had been healed before are now showing up again. Others are finding it hard to pinpoint any memories of their own, but they nonetheless feel some sort of generalized and/or anticipatory negative feelings.

I believe what’s happening is we are experiencing what authors Dr. Elise Van Sustenan and Stacey Colino call “Emotional Inflammation.”

There may be a very positive side to this, though. I think that as we heal ourselves, we are also in some way contributing in a very real way to the healing of the collective. To the extent that we’re tapping into that, is the extent to which our own healing will help the world.

If all you feel you can do right now is focus on your own healing, that’s OK. Doing just that is making a contribution that may be much more than more “concrete” acts of service.

And if you would like some personalized coaching, check out HealingCodesCoaching.com. The Healing Codes and Immanuel Prayer are exactly what is needed for this issue.

I was talking to a friend for the first time since this global shutdown came upon us.

“How are you doing?” she asked.

I answered, “Well, you know . . . it’s up and it’s down, good days and bad days, and today is not such a good day. The roller coaster ride of now.”

She repeated my sentence word for word, laughed, and said, “You have just nailed it.”

Up and down . . . good days and not so good days . . . the roller coaster ride of now.

And—the thing is—it doesn’t seem to matter what’s really going on.

For instance, a lot of great things are happening in my personal life right now. And in my clients’ lives. (Stay tuned, I have some real miracles to report!) I am focused on the positive, especially after last week’s revelation about how God searches out the positives and expands them. I am genuinely excited about coming into that space with him and allowing him to do that in my life, my relationships, my work.

And yet . . . yet the angst of the world’s suffering still seems to break in, even when I don’t watch the news much. It’s probably a factor in why I’m still easily triggered, like I was on Mother’s Day. Read More→
