Beyond Affirmations?

tn_183821_CJcrMay2012During our discussion on Soul Searching Radio   last week,   Kelly Smith   asked me to explain my work and how it I came to create it.  We discussed affirmations and why they don’t always seem to work.  As we said on the show, the fact is they do work but we have to be aware of what it is we are actually affirming! If we have an emotional block, the subconscious will not accept  positive suggestions it does not believe to be true.

I am passionate about helping people to love and appreciate their bodies and helping them allow their bodies to heal naturally. I got very frustrated when people got disheartened when positive affirmations didn’t work for them.  They gave up and felt an even greater sense of failure, shame, guilt or powerlessness.  That was why I created the What Your Body Wants To Hear  process.

Inspired by the work of Louise L Hay, Dr Masaru Emoto and others, I researched all the emotional issues generally held in specific areas of the body.  I then created releasing/clearing statements, empowering questions and finally, positive affirmations to cover all those emotions and more. The statements and affirmations cover all these emotions on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.

Each recording covers all the emotional issues which are generally held in specific areas of the body.

I created the following recordings to give you a taste of each of the three parts of the What Your Body Wants To Hear  programmes.  These demonstrations cover some of the issues implicated in back pain.

The first part of the process; releasing and clearing.

The second part, gentle, empowering questions or afformations.

And the third part, powerful, positive affirmations to replace your fear-filled, negative or destructive self talk and replace it with empowering, healthy and healing thoughts.

Spirit, Channelled By John Cali, and I Discuss Work, Love, Fear and More!

I asked Spirit why so many of us have become disillusioned with our old ways of working and being at this time. Why the old ways are no longer working. Why we are drawn to do “what we came here to do” even if we don’t know exactly what that is. Why fear comes up when we face change, how it serves us, how to use it and move on. How we can live the life of our dreams when we are challenged by uncertainty.

The conversation expanded to include our soul intent when we came in to this lifetime. Who we are, what we came here to do and where we go from here.

As usual, Spirit had a unique, practical and sometimes humourous take on life, helpful tips and great advice to help us create the life, work and future we dream of.

With Love,

Are You Burying Your Head in the Sand?

Are You Burying Your Head in the Sand?

Spirit often tells people that their bodies can heal themselves if they get themselves out of their body’s way.

For a long time I wondered what the difference was between getting out of the way and putting your head in the sand. I definitely didn’t know the difference when I set out on my own journey of growth and expansion with a health issue three years ago.

With my background in EFT, Zpoint, Reiki and Divine Love Healing, I knew there had to be an underlying emotional cause. I was sufficiently connected to my body to know what treatment it wanted or didn’t want, but I still was unclear about the difference in getting out of my own way and putting my head in the sand.

So for a time I put my head in the sand and travelled through the various stages, both emotional and physical, that I suspect many people facing so called potentially “serious” illness go through.

Why Did I Get Ill?

Because of my background, I missed out the “why me?” and “poor me” phases but I visited all the other places we can go when faced with dis-ease. If you find yourself in a “why me?” or a “poor me” stage, don’t beat yourself up about it, accept it, be with it for a while, truly feel it and know it will pass. You don’t live there, you are only visiting!

Disassociation

The disassociation phase, is, I believe, a very important one. It was during this phase that I made a big discovery. Disassociation from the “dis-eased” part is the very last thing it needs. It needs love, true, deep love and appreciation. I gained deep knowing from my disassociation phase, I needed to truly, truly love and appreciate my body, not just say the words, have an intellectual understanding or a belief. I had to love so deeply that the love, truly permeated my cells. That is what they responded to. Although intellect and belief help, they are surface helpers, I needed to go far beyond that, in to a deep, cellular, loving and knowing.

Deep Healing

When I got to that deep, loving, knowing, I realised I’d discovered the difference between getting myself out of the way and putting my head in the sand. There was a level of true acceptance, deep love and knowing in getting and staying out of my body’s way. All the energy I’d used putting my head in the sand, and it takes a lot of energy to do that, was freed up to be used in a positive, loving, healing way.

We don’t think twice when our body recovers from a cold, a pulled muscle or a cut finger. Why then do we believe there are some dis-eases, it can’t heal? That makes no sense to me.

I wish anyone who is faced with dis-ease, a very loving journey, be gentle with yourself.

With Love,

Barbara
