Healing and the Higher Self

These days, many are scratching their heads over the rise in health challenges and the unbearable costs to mitigate and/or “cure” illness.

As these challenges mount, concurrent is a sense of desperation to find the true cause of illness in an effort to fully heal rather than simply treating symptoms, which of course is what our modern medical industry peddles in earnest.

Fortunately, I have been hearing from individuals from all walks of life who have decided to exercise their own powers of healing rather than solely depending on others (the medical community) to do it for them.

Some of these individuals feel that their healing did not come from an outside source but rather a higher self or state of consciousness; one that can at times seem inaccessible, but is certainly within our reach.

What is the difference between those who try to reach the higher self with no success and those who are able to make contact?

Here are several accounts that personify the latter – individuals who decided to take healing into their own hands and connect with higher (inner) guidance to help them along the way.

Marlene’s Miracle…

I was recently speaking with one of my clients whom I’ve been working with to help her develop a greater sense of spiritual and intuitive capacity. She’s come a long way in the year or so that I’ve been working with her. Her outlook about her own innate capabilities have grown exponentially. Recently she had occasion to put her creation abilities to work, by directing her own healing.

She had recently sustained some minor injuries from a car accident in which exacerbated a previously torn muscle in her leg. She says, “The pain was unbearable – waking me up at all hours of the night.”

When she went to the doctor to have the injury looked at, getting whatever edict that the doctor would deliver, she immediately began reciting passionately,  “It’s going to heal. I’m mending now.” With diligent repetition and conviction, 48 hours later, the pain was nearly gone.

“I was just telling my body to heal and I was positive this would happen.” When she went back several days later to have the injury checked, the doctor was clearly shocked by the swiftness with which she was healing. “The doctor was stumped. She didn’t know how to explain it…” Needless to say, we spent some time really processing this incredible turn of events. As a result of her simply speaking and feeling the words, she initiated the process  and made way for a healing to take place.

Shingles “Be Gone!” – Sharon’s Story

In December of 2014 I interviewed a woman by the name of Sharon Millstein, a gifted psychic medium and numerologist and I might add, a very simple and down-to-earth woman. Sharon’s always relied on her own abilities to navigate life’s challenges. When a surprise diagnosis of shingles caught her off guard, Sharon decided to take action even before she knew what she’d been diagnosed with.

“I didn’t know I had shingles, but I knew something wasn’t right. I was so involved in other things I didn’t go to the doctor. I went and got my food grade essential oils and other things and started putting them on myself, along with thanking God for my healing. I was doing this on a regular basis.

[Later] I ended up going to a physician – I went there for another reason. [While there I asked], ‘By the way, what is this?’ (pointing to her stomach). She told me it was shingles.”

Sharon acknowledged that she must have had a mild case of it. When she later sent photos of her shingles to a friend who happened to be a medical doctor, he quickly confirmed that she had this awfully painful virus. When Sharon explained that she “took care of it” herself, he said, “Well you need to write this down because we need to know what you did!”

Self-healing of the body is certainly not an unknown within the alternative community. Some have used even more, shall we say, esoteric measures to heal serious afflictions like cancer.

William the Warrior…

William Buhlman is one such example. Well known for his personal experience and research into the phenomenon of out of body exploration, William was diagnosed with stage four cancer back in March of 2011. Having had a deep sense of conviction about the individual’s capacity to heal and an understanding that we are so much more than our physical vehicle, along with more traditional treatments, William decided to add some unconventional approaches including self-initiated out of body experiences as part of the healing process. It was with this sense of understanding and willingness to explore the deeper aspects of his disease through both OBE’s and lucid dreams that he feels contributed greatly to his cancer going into remission.

The pathways for exploring self healing appear to be endless, but where to begin? At the highest level of course – that part of you that sits on the mountain top with a 360 degree purview and a willingness to quite simply – heal!

But what’s the key to tapping the higher self you ask?


When I spoke with Dr. Eric Pearl, founder of The Reconnection, we discussed the subtle and yet profound difference in those who try to heal and those who simply allow it to happen. He said, “One of the most difficult concepts for most people to grasp is how to replace the concept of trying with one of allowing. How to replace the doing with being. How to replace the sending with receiving.”

We live in a society that promotes the pushing of will by force rather than allowing the natural flow of which we are all imbued with, to take place.

Don’t be shy about allowing that wiser, more knowledgeable part of you to impart wisdom to the “you” that is in need of the knowledge. Remove any barriers to listening that may exist, including  the doubt that your higher self exists to begin with!

Once the barrier is removed and the connection happens, just allow the healing to happen from on high!
