Even amidst all the wonderful success, I've seen in using the Healing Codes with my clients over the years, one of the most common things I’ve heard from people is that they feel stuck, or that they don’t feel like it’s working, or that they don’t feel like it’s working as well for them as it does for others.
But I’ve learned that a lot of the time, how these people feel is just that—a feeling. We all live mostly by our feelings, even when we think we’re being rational. If a man buys an expensive car because it makes him feel cool, then that’s obviously motivated by feelings. But if he buys a car because he’s looked around and decided it’s the best deal, that’s still rooted in emotion most of the time. He wants the feeling of getting a good deal, and that satisfaction and peace of mind is in many cases more important than the money itself.
Most of the time, this illusion of being stuck comes from people comparing themselves to others. In my early years with the Healing Codes, I had two people come to me for help who could hardly have been more alike. They were both 45 years old, were the same ethnicity, both had suffered from migraines for the past 15 years, and I think they may even have been related. I did what I could and the first one recovered completely in about 3 weeks, while the other one took over 13 months. Now, if you were that second person, you might well start to question why it wasn’t working for you the way it did for the other guy. A lot of people wouldn’t stick it out for over a year under those circumstances, which only seems reasonable, right?
But the truth is that even though they had the same symptoms, their sources were completely different. After those 3 weeks, the first guy shook my hand, thanked me, and walked out the door. That was fine, I was happy to have helped, but it was nothing like the second man. When that man finally reached the end of our time together, he was weeping. He told me that the work hadn’t just healed his migraines, it had healed everything in his life.
Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, “there is nothing to fear but fear itself.” I think that may be truer than even he would have guessed. I’ve learned over the years that when we feel like we’re going nowhere fast, the first question to ask yourself is whether you are fully committed to living in love in the present moment. In the presence of love, everything in our lives will tend to shift toward the positive, and fear is simply the absence of love. If you’re not there yet, don’t rush it. Keep working, keep praying, keep wanting not to want what you want, as we put it a couple of weeks ago. As long as you can do that, you’ll be well on your way.
If you have made that commitment for your life, I can almost guarantee you that you’re right where you’re supposed to be. The path of love makes its own time. If you’re moving slowly it may mean that there is a lesson you need to learn from your current circumstances. But beneath the surface, you can feel sure that things are moving all the time towards your long-term benefit.
Have a blessed, wonderful day!
