How to Self-Heal
Living Our Deeper Song
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
We are responsible for helping ourselves. It is our job to change our focus and do the work. We do that by staying tuned to the vibration of wholeness. How do we do that?
We have to believe healing is possible. We have to imagine ourselves as healed and restored. We have to believe that we have the ability to self-heal.
Imagine. We use our imagination to visualize and even experience ourselves as whole. Remember what it felt like to… Use your imagination to create a vision of what is possible, what can be restored and corrected. Rather than focusing on what ability is slipping away, remember what it felt like to be active and strong, whole and healthy.
Focus on the positive. When I feel a positive self-correction in my body posture, I focus on that, I acknowledge my body for that and my spirits are lifted by that success.
Visualize. Visualization gives your cells permission to change, to repair, to strengthen. Visualize the way it can be. Visualize the way this positive change will make your body self-correct. Visualize yourself as whole and perfect and complete.
Trust. Your body knows how to self-correct, to heal itself. Watch for the small improvements. Watch for the subtle changes that make new ways of being possible.
Each day I sit in meditation and draw energy up from the earth and down from my Soul Star. I imagine those moving in a counter-clockwise spiral within my body that clears and releases and restores and replenishes. I don’t have to know the details, I trust my body to do its job. I just have to keep the positive intentions coming its way.
Notice the subtle changes. Let that encourage you to keep imagining wholeness, to keep expecting wholeness, to experience wholeness. We are responsible for our own self-healing. Do the work. Reap the rewards.
Imagination, focus, visualization and trust are our guides to self-healing.
DEEPER SONG AFFIRMATION
I am whole, perfect and complete.
DEEPER SONG PROCESS
- Create a visualization process in which you see what is out of balance return to balance and wholeness. What does that feel like, look like, be like?
- Trust the self-healing process and notice the positive results. Let that encourage you to keep self-healing.
Honor Your Natural Rhythm
We get so busy and caught up in life that we have no clue what our natural rhythm is – how we would prefer to organically move through life. My daughter has a very big job and works long hours and when I asked her what she did on a day off she said, “Nothing”, she just sat around all day. That was restorative for her because she does not have a job that will allow her to establish and work at her own rhythm. If you are caught up in a demanding situation, how do you find and establish your own rhythm?
In the 80s I worked as a temp at Estée Lauder’s headquarters in New York City. Of course, Estée was a woman and all of her officers were women. There was one vice president who, every day at 4 o’clock, stopped everything for 20 minutes and had a Perrier and was not disturbed. She regrouped. She grounded. She balanced herself. She changed her rhythm. Where would you put a pause to regroup in your day? And what would you do in that time? You might meditate. You might go for a walk. You may look out the window and take deep breaths. Build some conscious pauses into your life and establish a way for you to re-center yourself. Honor your natural rhythm and stay balanced.
Raise Your Vibrational Set Point
We have great control over where we focus our attention and intention. We can focus on what is not working. Or we can focus on what is positive and creative and nurturing. In an instant, we can change our focus and our life experience.
Nurture and raise your vibrational set point. Focus your thoughts, your expectations and actions around your life so your experience will always be expansive, inclusive, and rewarding.
You are your higher self, expressing itself through the human form. Know that. Be that. Experience that. Remind yourself of that as you move through your day.
Give gratitude to your Higher Self, your Cosmic Self. Give gratitude to your human self, to your heart. Commit to this unfolding and trust you cannot do this wrong. It is your birthright.
Monitor Your Response
This is an incredibly important time to monitor your responses. Do you respond out of fear? Do you respond out of anger? Or do you focus on the higher positive energy? Somehow, someway, in this unfolding Divine Feminine, we have to build a new path. Each of us has to choose the direction and form of our own path. We must choose it with deepening awareness. And we must stay on as high a road as possible. Each day brings us a variety of circumstances that ask us to question our beliefs. To rethink our position. To re-visualize our future and make new choices. Making those choices, those changes, will get us there.
The old habitual responses are damaging. Many are based on outdated beliefs and no longer useful habits. They no longer have value. Once again we go back to ask what you believe you deserve and what you believe is possible. Thats what you will get and it should keep changing for the better. I can sit here and focus on all the ways and things that can go wrong. Or I can use my imagination and visualize how things could work in entirely new ways, in new structures, new formats, and new interactions. Everything needs to be examined and questioned. Then we must turn to focus on the unfolding possibilities that are being revealed to us in every moment. Are you getting the lessons? Are you changing your viewpoint? Are you free in your thinking to move into this new unfolding incredibly unusual Divine Feminine?
Foresight and Exploration
This is a time of change that is so dramatic that we need great foresight to see the unfolding possibilities. Then we must go exploring and see how we can shape the new ideas we find and utilize them and bring them into being. Be on the lookout for new ways to accomplish what resonates with you. Then explore and experiment and see if it is yours to do. Technical things come to mind, but there is huge philosophical change being called for in today’s changing world. Look ahead, go exploring and participate.
Have You Stopped Exploring?
It had been a very long time since I simply sat outside in nature but this week I did – on my new blue four-wheel walker with a seat. I call her “Adventurer”. I took my double flute and sat on the patio and played to the world. Now that I’ve managed to do that, I can do it again – often. I’m not sure what the neighbors thought about the old lady and her flute but they will figure it out. So now I have solved the physical challenges of sitting outside. Yeah for adventuring. What change do you need to make in your life that will open up new possibilities?
Preconceptions and Expectation
Preconceptions are limiting beliefs. They are made up out of our imagination, low expectation, and lack of information. And they can mess us up. Move into a new situation, a new experience, a new relationship with inner stillness and observe and experience and evaluate as you go. Let it unfold and choose in the moment. Be present. Do not anticipate. Immerse yourself in the experience and evaluate from your Still Point.
===DEEPEN YOUR SPIRITUAL PRACTICE===
How Do You Shift Your Consciousness?
You can intentionally use the power of sound and vibration to shift your own state of consciousness.
Do you find yourself humming when you are happy? You are using vibration to shift your mood. It is an organic response that helps shift your mood.
Stop what you are doing and notice your mood. How is your day unfolding? What has been your response? You can change your mood by consciously altering your focus. If I focus on a beautiful sunset it moves me and deepens my connection with the flow of the universe and all my human stuff fades away.
Perhaps identify a doorway that you pass thorough during you day and each time you move through it, pause to relax your shoulders, take a deep breath, perhaps close your eyes for a moment, and move to your center. Be fully present and move into your Still Point and simply be in the Center of your Being.
Pause. Breathe. Make a conscious choice.
===HOW TO BE A STRONG CONTRIBUTING MEMBER OF THE DIVERSE CIRCLE OF LIGHT BEINGs===
Explore New Pathways
The first step in understanding where you fit in to this rapidly evolving planetary change in opportunity, is to understand yourself. Understand your gifts. But most of all, understand your calling. You may have been on your life path for a long time, so you can see the pattern of the choices that you made. But this is a time to not just examine the past. Let’s stand tall right here at the entrance to the future and look around at what has become available. Look at what is now possible. Look at what calls you. Look at what gifts you can offer. Look what you need to learn in order to move forward. And go learn it.
I don’t have to get a job, I don’t have to earn money, but I very much want to remain relevant in our world today. I know many of my gifts, but where are they to be placed in service now, next? I can only ask that question of my inner self and wait patiently for the answer, or the insight, or the actual opportunity. I have given away some really good ideas recently because they’re not mine to do. But they need doing. And I seem to know people that could do them.
It seems like our next steps are all about change. Changing what we think. Changing what we believe. Changing what we think is possible. Changing our expectations. So I am standing here and looking around at what is evolving in the world around me and noticing what needs doing. Then I am to consider the “doing” part and see if it is mine to do.
I’m in the waiting stage right now. The nudges I’m getting seem to be ideas for other people which is actually very exciting. And that’s what I’m supposed to be doing right now – getting ideas and passing them on to the people who are ready to do them or whose path it fits. So my job is not to do the ideas myself, but to allow ideas to fly through me to others for the doing. I can do that.
Look at new fields of opportunity, look at new pathways leading to them, be very aware of your own gifts in a particular passion. Go exploring, make some choices, do your thing.
===BROADEN YOUR HORIZON – EXPAND YOUR VIEW===
Path of Curiosity
This is the time for trying new things. Of course it’s more comfortable to walk the familiar path and do the familiar things but with the world changing so rapidly we will be left behind if we remain on the path that we have been on. I choose the path of curiosity. That means I explore new ideas. I may try them on for size. I may make a different version of them. But I am mostly looking at change – how to change, ways to change and what to change, because the world is changing very rapidly and we have no idea what is going to look like yet. Our expectations will take us there. Our imagination will take us there. Take the path of curiosity. That’s what’s called for now in this unfolding world.
===OUR EVOLVING FUTURE===
It’s a tad tricky to be an 89 year old woman and still feel like you are contributing to life. I felt much better when I realized that I am fulfilling an important role – making others think.
As I go exploring wherever my wonderful mind carries me, I write to figure out what I discover, how I might bring the concept into my life. When I share that with you, I hope it prompts some new insights in you.
Our impact can be very subtle and it can be very far-reaching. This idea that I am still relevant by sharing my inner world explorations adds a depth of meaning to my life that is very welcome.
How are you touching lives in the world? What is your world work?
======THE UNFOLDING DIVINE FEMININE=== ===
The Divine Masculine Has to Change
I’ve been so busy wondering what the Divine Feminine will look like that I forgot that the Divine Masculine has a tremendous amount of change to make too. It involves a great deal of letting go of how things have been and expectations for how they can be. It calls for moving into a place of honoring a new role, a new participation in the group involved in the formation of the new world. The masculine must be a partner, not a dominant force – a collaborator, not a boss. How flexible can Divine Masculine be? It’s going to be a little like pushing and shoving to find space for the feminine self expression as roles grow bigger and smaller. It is time for both male and female to let go of old beliefs and expectations and gradually evolved into what is to be.
===REFLECTIONS OF A DEEPER SONG PODCAST===
Watch the Signs?
Sometimes the Universe has to bop us on the head to get our attention. A friend of mine got Co-Vid even though she had two shots and a booster, her boyfriend ended their relationship and she got so many personal clients that she got to cut back on her job! It was like a helium balloon being freed to fly.
What is holding you to the ground and how do you let it go?
As I watch my body continue to adjust and strengthen I must ask more of it, expect more of it. A long time friend is ready to do her website and I get to write all the content for it. It is wonderful and exciting and rewarding. My hot-air balloon rose a little too.
What is releasing in your life that leaves change for expansion? Pay attention. The Universe has exciting plans for you.
===SING A DEEPER SONG ===
The change was subtle – a shift, a release, a new way of being.
The change was subtle – a shift, a release, a new way of being. But the vista it opened up was huge – wide and welcoming.
The change was subtle – a shift, a release, a new way of being. But the vista it opened up was huge – wide and welcoming. First I will go exploring, then I will choose. A new path is unfolding for me. I will find it deep within.
