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.

It matters because it changes everything, starting with your very identity.

When you heal your heart issues, you begin to realize who you really are. You uncover what I think of as your Essential Self. Essential as in your essence—your core self, operating according to your core values.

Your Essential Self is really your human spirit. Your human spirit is meant to align with God’s Spirit, so that God’s Life flows through spirit to body and soul. This is where healing happens. This is why healing happens.

This is also why healing doesn’t happen. If heart issues block this flow of God-life, then dysfunction begins.

Healing is a spiritual matter.

When God’s Life does flow, and to the extent that it flows freely, everything becomes aligned with that God-life. We begin to know God as he really is, not as we have been conditioned by our relationships and/or past religious teachings to believe. We begin to connect with True God, and in so doing, we become more and more our True Self.

We can connect with other people better as well, when we’re aligned with God like this. Our Essential Self calls forth the Essential Self in others. Thus they, too, without even realizing it, are set on a path to healing, just because we are changing.

This was illustrated for me recently in talking to a client. She has had some difficult relationships with some of her siblings, and has worked hard to set healthy boundaries and let go of expectations. Recently, one of her siblings made a remark about herself indicating a level of self-awareness my client has never seen before. It hadn’t seemed possible that this sibling would ever say something like that. I believe that at least in part, the change was due to my client changing her own part of the relationship with her custom Healing Codes, and releasing the effects to her sibling.

If you understand The Healing Codes, you understand that everything is basically energy. Einstein said this more than 100 years ago. All energy has a frequency, a vibration. Every memory is energy that vibrates at a certain frequency. Some frequencies, such as the Schumann frequency of the earth, are healthy and life-giving. Some are destructive, such as man-made electro-magnetic frequencies (EMF).

With The Healing Codes, we change the frequencies of the negative images, memories and beliefs, which I believe reside in the information energy pattern in our DNA (cellular memories). When this happens, we “vibrate” at a higher level.

The “vibration” of our Essential Self, aligned with God, affects others. I have heard that if you put a bunch of pendulums in a room, all swinging in different rhythms, after 24 hours they will aleml swing to the same rhythm, according to the strongest pendulum.

Let’s be that “strongest pendulum.” Heal your heart matters because healing your heart matters. To you, to those in your circles of influence, to the world.

Step One in changing the world is to become your Essential Self, aligned with God so His life flows through you to others.

My daughter asked me the other day, “What can I get for you for Christmas and your birthday?” (which happen to be one and the same day). It was Cyber Monday, you see, and she wanted to shop online.

She had asked me the same question on Black Friday. As I thought then, and the other day, about what I needed, I was coming up blank.

For the past few months, I have been “editing my life” by eliminating things that were not truly essential or important to me. This arose from a feeling of chronic overwhelm, which I was working on healing. I realized part of the answer to overwhelm lay in subtracting clutter of all kinds that had somehow accumulated when I wasn’t paying attention.

So when my daughter asked me what I wanted or needed, my first thoughts were of things that you can’t find in a store or online, things you can’t wrap and put under a tree.  A greater sense of margin in my life. Hope that the future will be better, for myself and the world, despite many signs that things are going in the opposite direction.

I realized as I pondered what my daughter could joyfully give me, and I could joyfully receive (for gift giving is my primary “love language“), that I already have all I need. Anything she or anyone could give me would just be icing on the already-sweet cake that was my life.

I have a wonderful husband, two amazing, loving adult children who are on their own and who enjoy being with each other and their parents. I have a home that, while it could use some updating by the world’s standards, suits us very well. I have plenty of clothes (still getting rid of some), I know how to cook wonderful and healthy food. I have a reliable car (which I seldom need to drive because I work from home). I have work I love, many people I love, and I’m (finally) part of a caring community, both in my church and a smaller, more informal group that loves to connect with Immanuel and grow in grace.

I am in the process of understanding and healing the wounds of my past, and I have amazing tools that help me get and stay healthy. I am also coming to better understand my (and my husband’s and son’s) trait of High Sensitivity, and am learning to thrive as an HSP and help others to do so as well (a huge percentage of my clients are Highly Sensitive People, and The Healing Codes are particularly well suited to the deep healing HSPs need).

Is my life perfect? No, not by a long stretch. There are secret sorrows as well as the frustrations most people face in this modern world. However, when I dwell on the things that matter that I mention above, the “less than ideal” aspects fade into the background of gratitude.

What do I need, what do I want? All I need was given by the One whose coming I celebrate on December 25, the One whose birth was announced by angels with a song about “peace on earth, good will toward humankind.”

Settling into the energy of “enough,” I’m finding great peace.

One of the “Truth Focus Statements” I like to use when working on healing my “not enough” issues is: “I am enough. I have enough. I do enough. I know enough. There is enough.” I have added this to the Truth Focus Statements that are available here for free.

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→
