I am so happy you are here.
I created this page as a place to begin.
There is A LOT of content on this website about healing and transformation along with tons of videos on Youtube. There is A MOUNTAIN of free content on healing. A little too much if you want my own little humble opinion. I have been teaching since 2004 and it all adds up over time: there are hundreds of free talks, videos, podcasts and blogs from me.
So I wanted to simplify it for you. I feel that these two podcasts – below – best sum up the work I do in area of healing. They are a perfect place to begin if you are sick or suffering in any way. They are talks on healing that I gave on The Lisa Show (my podcast) in February 2018 that give a process and practice to heal anything.
To get you started, here’s two questions for you:
This is what A Course in Miracles calls “the collapse of time.” You step into “your future” as your healed Self, right now.
Take some time today to think about this, write it down, then go do it.
The way Jesus put it 2000 years ago is: PICK UP YOUR BED AND WALK.
You can walk right out of sickness, suffering and limitation any time you choose, by your own decision to side with the strength in you instead of your own perceived weaknesses.
You are not weak, but strong.
You are not limited, but unlimited.
You are not frail, but powerful.
You are not a body. You are free.
You have the strength, power and ability to do anything because of Who You Are.
Also on this page – below – you will find transcriptions of these two talks that take you through the process I describe in these audios, that I used to heal myself.
You will need pen and a paper (or notebook) for your own self-diagnosis and to write your own treatment. Deep within you, you know the problem and you also hold the answer to your healing. You know what changes need to be made in your thinking and in your life. These talks with guide you through it.
And then, if you like these talks, you can sign up to be on my free mailing list.
I know a lot of people require people to sign up for a mailing list in order to access gifts like the ones you find here on this page, but honestly, that’s just not my style.
I only want people on my mailing list who really truly absolutely WANT to receive email messages from me. I don’t want a list of people who are only there because they were curious about the free gifts.
SO HERE YOU GO. Your free gifts are below. Everything you need to heal anything.
This is two hours of audio with written transcripts to get you started on your healing journey.
And if you like these talks, then you can sign up for my mailing list.
You also can read more about me on the About page.
If you are new to A Course in Miracles, I encourage you to check out my FREE 40-Day Program for Transformation.
And if you like these podcasts and want to LIVE these practices for 8 weeks in your life, check out The Healing Cure. This is the program I talk about in these podcasts – a course that’s been a vision of mine for 10 years. I launched it in December 2018.
Welcome to The Lisa Show, I’m Lisa Natoli, this is episode 2.
Thank you so much for listening. I’m excited for today’s topic, dealing with physical symptoms. If you like the show, and you would like to get updates the second I post them, you can subscribe over at Sound Cloud, SoundCloud.com/lisanatoli. I still don’t know exactly when I’m going to be posting these weekly shows. Last week I posted it on Thursday, this week I’m posting it on Thursday. So if you want to just get it the second I post it, just subscribe, follow the show, The Lisa Show, and you will be alerted the second it goes up.
This week I really wanted to talk about physical symptoms. A lot of the mail that I receive is from people asking for prayer around sickness, and physical pain, and I’m grateful for people opening up their hearts in a very authentic way. I also received a message from someone who really said, “Can you please give a show, or something, on how I can deal with this darkness that I’m experiencing?” And she’s been dealing with physical symptoms for years, she’s constantly in the doctor’s office, always searching online for a cure. She’s on a spiritual path, and so I wanted to really just share that answer with all of you. I’m going to be speaking from my own heart, use a little from A Course In Miracles, which is always my inspiration. I love the mind training of A Course In Miracles, I always encourage people to buy a copy of the book and begin it. Just make a commitment to do the workbook lessons, set time aside to read the text, it truly is an instruction manual on awakening transformation, and healing.
Many people on a spiritual path use spiritual ideas to not do the inner work. So, for example, with A Course In Miracles, you may have a physical experience of sickness, and you find yourself saying things like, “I’m not a body. It’s an illusion, there is no world, I need do nothing,” and that’s the truth. You’re not a body, there is no world, it’s not real. But if you’re using it in that way, of just stopping yourself on the surface, that’s an ego tactic so that you don’t look within, so that you don’t actually look into your mind to find out what is really going on there.
What I’m going to ask for you today, is to have a pen, and a piece of paper, I’m going to give you just a few steps that you can begin to take, and when the show is over, I ask for you to sit quietly, go through these steps that I’m going to give you. I’m going to give them pretty fast today, I have a lot of notes that I wrote down yesterday afternoon. So all I ask for you to do in this show is just to write down what I’m going to share with you, and then when I finish, to take time, and I really do encourage you to take it as soon as you can when the show is finished, because the mind is very clever in keeping you from doing this inner work. The mind that’s in conflict, the mind that is sick, does not want to do this work. And so it has to be a real dedication that you really do want to experience change in your life.
The other thing that I find a lot of people on a spiritual do, is make themselves guilty for having a sickness, or a physical pain. And that’s also another ego trick to keep you at the surface level. If you’re looking outside of yourself for a cure, you are searching the internet, you’re reading other people’s stories, and you’re trying to use what worked for other people on yourself, you’re still looking outside of yourself, you’re not doing the work of really looking within your mind to find out what is going on here. What are the beliefs, and the thoughts, what are the blocks and the obstacles that are in my mind? What is the fear? And you’re looking directly at it now, and so it takes honesty, it takes courage, it takes willingness. And you’re the physician. You’re the physician, I love the line that Jesus gave to us, “Physician, heal thy self.” You are the doctor, and you are the patient. And now, now you are going to experience true healing. So let’s just begin.
So what I would like to ask for you to do as a first step, when we get off the show, is I want you to write down all of the symptoms, just as if you were in a doctor’s office, and the doctor was to say to you, “All right, what’s going on?” And I want you to really think that you’re in the doctor’s office. I want you to really know that you’re not alone, there is a presence and a power within you, a physician. This is your true self, and you’re having a consultation now. And so I want you to just write down, and this is going to be your prescription, you’re writing it down on paper, what are the symptoms? And just write it down, don’t try to judge it, this is just for you.
I want you to really look at what is the message that the body is trying to say to you through this experience. Don’t try to find a cure. What you’re going to do now is look and find out exactly what your own blocks are. I want you to write down, “I have done this thing, and it is this I would undo.” So that is a line from A Course In Miracles, “I have done this thing, and it is this I would undo.” So all sickness is isolation, that you’ve isolated yourself from your true being, the light that you are, you’ve isolated yourself from God, you’ve isolated yourself from others. I have done this thing. I isolated myself. Sickness is a retreat from others. And we do it because of fear. When we’re very young children, we start to develop a wall to keep us safe, and now what you’re doing, is you are recognizing what your defenses are, what are your grievances, what are the thoughts that you’re having, what are the beliefs that you hold? And so true healing now, requires radical honesty. It requires a complete change of mind. And a decision to do things in a completely new way. So I want you to really look at what particular part of the body is the physical symptom showing up in. Now what’s coming to you? What brought this on? And you have the answer, and you know what to do. Last week I made this poster that said, “Stand tall and have confidence. You have the answer, and you know what to do.” And I think that’s really important, that’s something I want for you to remember, because what happens when you’re in a state of sickness, or pain, or physical symptoms, is that is a thought system of doubt, it’s a thought system of weakness, of being a victim, of being powerless. And so now what you’re doing is you’re coming back into a place of certainty, and confidence. Stand tall. And I really just ask for you to put that on your treatment page. Stand tall.
To me, sickness is being off center. You have forgotten who you are, you have felt that you are alone, you have forgotten this presence and this power that is with you, as you. And as you live in a state of off balance for a continued amount of time, it begins to show up in the body. And so you’re just out alignment. And so all healing is nothing more than a decision to come back to your center. To get aligned again, to know that you’re not alone, to begin to acknowledge this presence, and this power, and this light. To learn to work with this energy. I love the line in The Course In Miracles, it says, “Release the inner light.” So what you are, in truth, is all light, pure light. What we do, as a human being, is we create a well of grievances, judgments, and these grievances hide the light of the world in you.
So all healing is nothing more than discovering the blocks, and the obstacles, the grievances, the judgements, the self hatred, the condemnation, and have the willingness to let it go. To not hold onto it anymore, because when you hold onto it, it literally blocks the light of the world in you. And when you are blocking the light, light wants to flow. It just does. It is so powerful. And when you block this light from flowing, it turns dark. The light turns dark. This is in the Bible for 2,000 years ago. It turns doubly dark. And that’s why you have the experience of being in darkness, because you quite literally are. You’re in the darkness, the light has turned to darkness, because you are blocking it with your own fear. And true healing is a willingness to stop blocking, to start extending this light, to start giving of yourself.
And so, that’s part of it. You want to really look at, okay, what’s the message that this sickness is giving to me? So instead of trying to find a cure, I really do suggest you stop looking on the internet, stop looking outside of yourself. And I know for myself, for the last six years, I, myself, have been dealing with physical symptoms. They are disappearing. I’ve had for the last six years, actually it was before six years, I find this fascinating. That I started to have this question in my mind, how is healing accomplished? It was like this burning question, and I know how A Course In Miracles answers it. But I really felt as if there was a shift in the consciousness, that there was going to come a time when we no longer were going to doctors, that we really were all healing ourselves. And I wanted to know how to do it. And I kept asking, and when I look back in my journals, it’s just this question, over, and over, and over, how is healing accomplished?
And Jesus answers in the Manual for Teachers, in a section called How Is Healing Accomplished, he said, “Healing is accomplished the instant the sufferer sees no value in pain.” I thought, “Okay, well I know what it says about it, but how does it really work? Like how really do we achieve perfect health, to have that kind of energy, and vitality, where there is no physical symptoms?” So I had been asking this question. And then in January 2012, I got what I thought was the flu, felt like a virus, and I kept feeling like something’s alive in me. It felt hot, it felt moving, I felt like … and I kept writing it down in my journal. “There’s something alive in me.” There was vomiting, and there was fever, and it would come and go. I never did the inner work, back then, I never actually looked and saw like what’s going in my mind that’s creating this situation?
I actually love it that this has happened to me, because now it feels like I asked how is healing accomplished, and I gave myself a physical experience that I could actually work with. It’s like Jesus saying, “Okay, you want to know? You really want to know? Okay, boom, we’re going to give you an autoimmune disease. And the doctors say it’s incurable, and here you go. Now you have a testing ground, now apply the words that I’m going to tell you so that you can see there’s no order of difficulty in miracles.”
For the longest time, I look back in my journals, it’s amazing to me how much of my journals was just doubt. Just saying, “Why is this happening? Please heal me, what can I do?” Jesus tells us very specifically in A Course In Miracles, that we have to let go of doubt, and step into certainty. For me, it was all manifesting in my mouth, in my throat, in speaking, in seeing, my eyes. So a lot of it was just tied up in communication. And so what I’m going to ask for you to do, is I want you to just sit quietly and ask yourself what message is the body trying to say to you through this experience?
For me, when I sat quietly and asked that question, it had everything to do with fear of teaching, fear of communicating, fear of being authentically myself. And I hadn’t been myself for a long time. Like I really felt like I was trying to get the words right when I was teaching and expressing, and I was terribly afraid of being criticized. So what I did, was I created scenarios where I just thought, “Well, I just won’t teach, then I’ll be safe,” and, “I’m not going to teach unless I can get it perfect.” And of course, you can never get it perfect. So what started to happen was I stopped teaching. I just thought, “I don’t want to express this message, because I’m not sure if I’m saying it right.” And I stopped teaching for years. And I was to become a waitress, and then I decided to go become a Zumba instructor, and there’s nothing wrong with being a waitress, or a Zumba instructor, but for me, it was a defense.
And this is what I’m saying, is that only you can know what your defenses are. I was hiding. I just was wanting to just go underground, and not ever have to express any message about God or Jesus. I remember whenever I would talk about God, or Jesus, people would start to say things, and it just felt like, “Okay, I don’t want the conflict.” And so, I lived in that space for quite a while, and suddenly it’s manifesting as physical symptoms. For me, it was showing up as dry mouth, dry eyes, congestion, mucus in the eyes, red eyes. A situation that was very visible. I didn’t want to go out, I didn’t want to be in front of people, I didn’t want to have a camera on me. So I stopped teaching. I just literally said, “Okay, I’m just going to try to find a cure for this, and when I find a cure, and the dry mouth goes away, and the red eyes goes away, and the mucus goes away, then I’ll start extending again, then I’ll start teaching.” And so we bargain with God, and what I found was that the problem, the thing that the body was telling me, was that I was afraid of communicating.
So, the cure, for me, was to start communicating. It was a decision to be completely authentic, and to not be perfect anymore, and to start showing up, and to not wait until the symptoms went away. To really just make a decision that I am going to just be myself, completely. And that’s why I call this The Lisa Show, because I don’t want to call it a Course In Miracles Radio, even though that is absolutely my total love, I read the course every single day, I am in love with Jesus, I am in love with the message. But it was really this decision that I’m just going to speak from my heart from now on.
And so what I ask for you to do, is I want you to look at what are the symptoms, just write it all down, don’t make yourself guilty for it. And then what is the body trying to tell you? What’s the message in here? You have the answer, I want you to keep remembering that, you have the answer, and you know what to do. Now you’re just stepping into this certainty, and this confidence, and it will take a moment of just being silent. So I want you to think about how do you talk about your physical symptoms? How do you think about it? What are the actual words and the actual thoughts, and I want you to just put it all down on paper. I want you to see exactly what you’re saying.
And so for me, it was, “I can’t see. I can’t talk.” This is what I was thinking to myself. “I can’t see.” My vision was just blurry. “I can’t see, I can’t see, I can’t see.” And then I got to look at that. I got to see what the mind was doing. All healing is you resolving unresolved and often unconscious emotional issues. So what blocks are there? I want you to look at how are you isolating. Are you connected with God? Are you having a relationship with yourself? How are you isolating from others? I want you to look at what are your grievances, and just write it all down, write a list of names of people that you’re upset with, that you’re angry with, situations that are troubling you.
Remember, you’re in the doctor’s office. This is you with you, you’re with the greatest healer who ever lived, Jesus. I want you to really think about that. When are you with your piece of paper, and your pen, I want you to think, “I’m with Jesus.” Jesus was not 2,000 years ago, Jesus is now. The Christ is with you. Greatest healer who ever lived is with you now. And now you are working in a collaboration with the doctor, this is all that’s happening here, and it’s exciting because you will find out all the blocks, all the obstacles, all the beliefs. And you will discover them through your thoughts, and your words, and your actions. You being recognizing and resolving these emotional issues, and you might think, “I do not know how to resolve these emotional issues. I do not know how to deal with these blocks.” And I want you to say to yourself, “Yes, I do. I know the answer, I know what to do.” Because we act helpless, we act weak.
I want you to find out what sickness serves for you. I also want you to think about how are you managing your energy? And you may never have thought about that, you may have thought, “I never thought about how I’m managing my energy.” How are you managing your light? Are you the boss of your energy, and your energy is your thoughts, your words, your actions? Or is it the boss of you? Who’s running the show here. And so you’re learning now to work with your own energy. Discover how being weak, sick, powerless serves you. It’s giving you something.
So, for me, I didn’t have to teach. I could be quote, unquote, “safe”. And I lived in that space for long enough that I began to manifest physical symptoms of the the thought system that I had been living in. Like, ” I don’t want to teach, I don’t want to be criticized.” And the mind is so powerful that it begins to give you exactly what you’ve been asking for. So, start to really look at, okay, how is this serving me? And quite often, it’s just that you just want to rest. You want to take time for yourself, and you don’t dare to ask for it, so you create a physical symptoms, a sickness, where now you can rest. It could be that you’re in a job that you don’t like, it could be that you’re in a situation that you don’t like. Maybe you’re in a relationship that you know is over, and you’re still sticking around in it.
The other night I was with a friend of mine, and he was talking about his first marriage, he was married for over 20 years. And his wife was very hostile, and it just was not a very good marriage. And he said that he used to sit in a chair at night, or he would lay in his bed at night, and he would just think, “This is my life. This is just how it is.” And he was a young man still, he was still in his 30s. He just thought, “Well, oh well.” And then he got out of that marriage, and now he’s in this great marriage, and his life is completely different, and he made a decision that he really couldn’t tolerate it any more, this life that he was living.
And I was reading this great story about Dr. Bernie Siegal, who wrote the book Love, Medicine and Miracles. He’s a cancer surgeon and an author, and he told the story of a patient, Arthur, who was diagnosed with advance stage cancer, who was given less than a year to live, and was sent home to put his affairs in order, and five years later, Bernie Siegal ran into this man in the supermarket and couldn’t believe that he was still alive. Dr. Siegal asked the man, “What happened?” Arthur reminded Dr. Siegal of the advice that he had given him after he revealed his diagnosis, and it says here, “Because he believed his patient had only a short time left, Dr. Siegal had told Arthur to make it the best six to 12 months of his life. Arthur had taken the advice literally. He went home and quit the job he never really liked, booked himself on a cruise he’d always wanted to take, and began piano lessons, which was something else he’d always wanted to do.
After six months of this new life, Arthur said he was feeling so good, that he decided he didn’t have to die. Five years later, he was in great health, and hadn’t been sick once during the interim. Flabbergasted, Dr. Siegal had his staff followup with the families of many patients he’d long assumed had passed away, only to discover that many of them were still alive years later, and completely healthy. Dr. Siegal says, ‘There are no incurable diseases, only incurable people.’”
That sentence right there is part of the reason I have not been very vocal about healing until recently. Because, I have seen that not everyone is healed. And I thought, “Well, this information just doesn’t work.” What I know, is that there is no incurable disease, only incurable people. That some people are just too afraid to look within at what their blocks, and their beliefs are. That the fear is just too great to live in a new way. It’s too much to leave a relationship that they don’t really want to be in.
And so, you have to really come to this place in your life to see if you’re willing to change your mind, if you’re willing to change your habits, if you’re willing to change your routines. If you’re willing to change your beliefs, if you’re willing to let go of grievances, and it can be a scary place, because we’re so used to feeling like we have to show up this certain way, this is how people know us. And if I don’t show up this way that I think I’m expected to show up in, people won’t like me. This is the place where you have to decide, are you going to keep people pleasing, or are you going to heal? And to really let go of the things that are not serving you, to talk away from these situations that you are just tolerating. And to say, “That’s enough of that, and I’m no longer going to live in this way. And I’m going to be alive.” I love it, to make it the best six to 12 months of his life, and to take this advice literally, and I love this sentence in here, “Arthur said he was feeling so good, that he decided he didn’t have to die.”
So, all healing is recognizing and releasing a way of being. You have been a certain way. You’ve been weak, or powerless, or a victim, or holding grievances. And you recognize this just a way of being, or you’re not being yourself, you’re not being authentic, you’re not speaking up. Like I’ve heard that cancer is something held in, that you’re not expressing yourself. I want you to look at where is this sickness showing up in your body. Like often, if it’s in the back, or in the legs, you feel like you’re not being supported, or maybe you’re afraid to move forward, if you have problems with your legs. With the hands and with the arms, maybe you’ve been carrying too much, or you’re afraid to reach out, like it always is going to show up in a physical area, and the words that you use, and the thoughts that you have been thinking.
So you might just want to spend the next week watching yourself. Watch the thoughts that you’re thinking, and the words that you’re using. And whenever you find yourself thinking, “I want this to be healed,” I want you to change it. So think about that, “I want this to be healed,” you’ve given your power away, you are waiting on something to do something for you. And just built into that is powerlessness. So instead, “I want a healing,” I want you to think about the state of being, the way of being that you want to show up in. So it could be, “I’m feeling joy, I’m feeling vibrant, I’m extending love, I’m in gratitude.” And if you think about these physical symptoms as vibrations, so you might think it’s too much of a jump to go from sad, and depressed, and angry to vibrant and joyful, that’s a big jump. But what you can do is if you’re working with your own energy, and your own vibration, is to just shift to gratitude, shift to appreciation, whatever you can do to get out of that containment that you’ve been holding yourself in, and just shift your energy a little. And what happens when you shift your energy a little, is it starts to just move on its own, it knows exactly what to do.
I’m going to tell you something important. Love is your power. I want you to write that down. Love is your power. And it is yours to give. And there is a light in you that is there for you to begin extending. And this light will heal you, this love will heal you. And it is a direct experience, you must start giving. You must start extending, I know no other way. And just drop the idea that you’re sick. You’re not sick, you’re pure light. So you’re having an experience of symptoms, or cancer, where’s your focus going? Your focus is either going to go to the body identity, or it’s going to the truth of what you are, the light. The light can never be sick. And all healing is nothing more than returning back to a state of wholeness again, which is already true, you’re already whole. It’s coming back into harmony.
And for me over the last couple of years, it was tremendous feelings of overwhelm and stress, constantly feeling that I was letting people down, that I wasn’t able to be there for everyone. I would just wake up in the morning and immediately just feel that I already had failed people. Before I even got out of bed, I was feeling this pressure, this heaviness. I wasn’t dealing with the stress, I was not doing things to let go of that. And so, it’s no big surprise to me that the body’s started to reflect what was going on in my inner thoughts. And then I had a few experiences where I thought I was going to die. That was actually a turning point for me. All of these journals with all of this content in it, I never put it in a healing program, it’s been a vision of mine for years, and I just kept thinking, “I’m not ready. I can’t talk about healing until I’ve experienced healing.”
And then I started to feel, “I am going to die, I am literally leaving this earthly plane, and all of my notes are going to be in my journals, that I never finished what I wanted to do.” It snapped me awake, it was big wake up call for me. And I just kept making these decisions that I’m going to just be free. I’m going to be authentic from now on, I’m not going to stress out, I’m not going to be overwhelmed, I’m not going to be guilty if I’m not calling everybody back, and if I’m not responding to all of my emails. And you really can see that this becomes a priority for you to live authentically, to live the best six months to a year of your life. What would you do? If you knew that your time on earth was limited, what would you do?
I remember in the last few years of Yogananda’s life, he knew that he had this information in his head about Jesus, and he knew that he had to get it on paper. And he had spent much of his life just doing public teachings, traveling a lot, surrounded by people. And in one instant, he knew, “I have to stop all of that, because I have to get this out of my head, on to paper.” And he retreated from all of his traveling, and all of his teaching, the write The Second Coming of Christ, which is brilliant. It is a brilliant work, and he pretty much just went into seclusion. He had a few people that were with him, helping him. But he knew this is it, that people expected him to be teaching and traveling and be this great teacher, and he just came to this point, and he said, “No, I’m listening. I’m trusting to my own inner voice, and I’m following it.” To me, that’s true healing. He didn’t need to heal anything, but that’s a great demonstration of somebody who’s really listening. And that was the place that I came into, where I really recognized, okay, I have all of these ideas of how I’m supposed to show up in the world. They’re all ideas that I simply placed on myself. In a moment, I recognized, I don’t have to do any of that anymore. In A Course In Miracles says, “The past is over, I let it go.” And it takes great courage to come into a place where you can really let the past go. You say, “That’s enough of that, I’m not going to do this job I don’t want to do, I’m not doing to be in these relationships that I don’t want to be in, I’m not going to pretend to be anything other than who I am.” And you start showing up in a new way.
So you have your list of symptoms now, and I want you to really find out what’s the message that the body is trying to tell you, that the mind is trying to tell you, it’s trying to come through. What is it? And then, really just look at how can you change your routine, your habits, your thinking, your words, your life, and recognize that this is your healing treatment. How are you holding back? And why? Why are you holding back? That’s important. Ask yourself that question. If you’re not doing the things you love to do, why not? What are your distractions? Are you expressing yourself? Are you living authentically? Really look at what is going on with you. And you will discover all of the beliefs that you have about yourself, and the ego’s going to be pissed when you do this work. It doesn’t want you to look. But you must make a decision. You say, “Okay, this is important to me. I’m looking now.” We must find out what’s going on in your mind and heal that.
So you’re going to go within and find out what this illness is, what these symptoms are, what are they trying to tell you? Find out the beliefs, and then be willing to release them. Ask yourself, what do you need to get rid of? What needs to change? I think a big part of healing is just stop punishing yourself, to stop suppressing guilt, to stop feeling shame, to stop with the self hatred. And you might think, “I can’t do that. I don’t have that power.” And you absolutely do have that power. You have the ability to direct your thinking. And if you think you don’t have the ability to direct your thinking, you’re acting from the place of being weak and powerless.
So there’s this line in A Course In Miracles I want to read, it says, “Every response you make is determined by what you think you are.” What do you think you are? I am the love of God. Every response you make is determined by what you think you are, what you want to be determines what you think you are. So what do you want to be? I want to be the joy of the Lord, I want to be the peace of God, I want to be light of the world. I want to be a happy child, free. “What you want to be determines what you think you are, and what you want to be determines every response you make. Teach no one that he is what you do not want to be.” This on page 283 of the CE edition of A Course In Miracles. I’m going to read it again.
“Every response you make is determined by what you think you are. What you want to be determines what you think you are. What you want to be determines every response you make. Teach no one that he is what you do not want to be.” So think about. Oftentimes, we’re making other people guilty, we’re attacking others. And the mind training of A Course In Miracles says you must relinquish attack completely. So, all of those times that I was in doubt, I was attacking myself. People had asked me how I lost 60 pounds in effortless way over the last couple of years, “How did you do it? What did you eat?” I’m going to tell you how I did it, I started to love myself. I stopped with the dieting. I said, “I’m done with that. I’m just going to love myself. In the way that I am, in the body that I’m in, I’m going to totally love myself.” That’s the whole treatment, love. Love is the answer, love is your power. And I bought clothes that fit me, and I just said, “That’s it, I’m going to honor, and I’m going to bless myself from now on, and I’m done with thinking that I need to improve myself. And I’m just going to love myself completely.”
In that love, I started to do things differently. I saw all of my old habits of self sabotage, and I changed, and that’s how healing is accomplished. The way to dispel illusions, is to withdraw all investment from them, they will have no life for you because you have put them out of your mind. The gift of life is yours to give. All confusion comes from not extending life. Give only honor, give only blessings, give only love, give appreciation and gratitude, and Jesus said, “Love one another as I have loved you.” Rest in His love, and protect your rest by loving.
So it’s just important that you really take this power back, that you recognize that you have the ability to direct your thinking. So I just thank you for being here with me. Forgive yourself. Forgive yourself, forgive others, let the past go, learn to be kind to yourself. That’s important, I just think so many of us just are not kind to ourselves.
So how to deal with physical symptoms, use them, see them as a gift. See them as a message, they’re telling you something. And stop trying to heal them, stop trying to change them. Just recognize that something’s been trying to get your attention, and now what you’re going to do, is you’re going to listen. That’s how you deal with physical symptoms. Let them speak to you. What are they saying to you? And then you do the deep inner work of going within, and finding out what can you change? What needs to be changed in your thinking, in your actions? Take responsibility for whatever seems to be having. This is total freedom.
And you’ll feel excited about it. That’s how I felt. I felt like, “Okay, wow, I brought this on. Nobody did this to me, I’m not being punished.” For years I thought I was being punished. And I also thought I was having physical symptoms because somehow I thought Jesus was holding me back. It was like being the horse at the gate, and Jesus was holding the gate closed because the world wasn’t ready. I actually had those thoughts. I just thought, “Okay, I really want to just give and extend, but it’s not time.” And so I felt that I was being stalled, and now I see I just did it all to myself. Nobody was holding me back, nobody was doing anything to me. The secret of salvation is this, you are doing this unto yourself. No matter what seems to be happening in your experience, you are doing this to yourself. And you’re not guilty for it, it’s just a fact, and I really came to this place where I recognized, “Okay, this is exciting, I’m not a victim. Like I brought this on for some reason, and it is this I have done, I have done this thing, and it is this I would undo.”
And that becomes your dedication. And you find out all the ways that you can become authentic, that you can show up in a way that brings you so much joy. And you start giving, and you don’t care what people say, and what they think. Because you know your time is limited. You just recognize how precious the day is. I mean, the thought of death can be such a great gift, because it really does show you what’s important now, and you recognize, “Wow, I might only be here for another couple months, or another couple days, why am I doing things that I don’t want to do?” That should wake you up. That should snap you right awake, and you begin to find out all the things you love to do.
So all healing is nothing more than the recognition that sickness is a defense against the truth. That’s it. Like we make ourselves sick, so that we don’t have to be the love of God that we are, that we can continue to be weak and powerless, and separate from others, and isolate ourselves until we die. And in a moment, you recognize, “I am not going to live that way anymore.” And this becomes an experiment ground for you to test these ideas out. I invite you to be bold. I invite you to practice these ideas. I invite you to go deep within, and find out what is going on in your thinking, and then make a decision to direct your thinking. In sickness, the mind just goes automatically to the body, it goes to the pain. So, it requires you to really be a master in that you are stepping into mastery now, and you are directing your thinking now, only to love. Only to the light that you are. You’re identifying now with the truth, which is that I am Christ. I am the love of God. I am the joy of God. I’m not alone.
And you start working now in collaboration with this presence and this power. You recognize these lower energy fields of shame, guilt, blame, depression, sadness, anger, jealousy. And you say, “I’m done. No longer need to live in this way, these emotions do not serve me, this is not what I am.” And in the beginning, as I said, you may not know how to get out of that state, that location. All you need is a willingness. To say, “I don’t want to live in this way, I don’t want to hold on to this grievance anymore, I don’t want to attack myself anymore, I don’t want to attack others anymore. I want only to love. I want only peace.” And in that, is your commitment. And the next time you attack, you will remember. Say, “I just said I don’t want to attack, and here I am attacking myself again, or attacking another.” And so you quickly come back into a place where now you’re being conscious, you’re being aware, you’re not looking outside yourself for the cure. You’re finding out your blocks, and your obstacles, and your beliefs, you’re seeing the wall that you put up to protect yourself from the truth. And you’re making a decision to show up in a new way.
And the final piece is that you are deciding on the outcome that you want. So you have your symptoms, you have the causes, what is the message that all of this is showing you? What are the changes that you can make? And the final thing I ask for you to do, and I’m grateful if you’re still here listening, this piece is important, is you’re deciding on the outcome that you want. Just think about the outcome that you would like to achieve. Whether it’s perfect health, more energy, vitality, joy, purpose. Decide on the outcome, and then live it, don’t wait for it, it’s already here, it’s already been given. And keep picturing that outcome.
And so for me it was an outcome of expressing the excitement and the joy that I’d been expressing in my journals all these years. Like I get so excited and happy in the morning when I dump all of these ideas from my head onto the page. And I kept thinking, “I want to share these journals with people, I want to share what’s in these journals in a public way, I want to create a healing program.” But the fear was so great, I just thought, “I’m not ready, I will be criticized.” And now it’s a space where I say, “I’m doing it.” This has been a vision of mine forever, this is my healing. This is the place where I have determined the outcome. The outcome that I want is that I’m showing up in my life, every day, and bringing the light of God to all the places I go. That I am shining a light in this world, and just lighting it up with God’s love. And I’m inspiring people, and I have lots of energy. And there’s a joining there, and there’s an excitement. And that’s the outcome.
And so then it was just a decision to step into this outcome, because it’s already happening. Jesus talks about this. That what you think is the future is actually now, so don’t wait. This is your healing. Whatever it is that comes to you that you would absolutely love to do, and how you would like to feel, step into it. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have the money, if you just don’t know how to do it. You do know how to do it, remember that. Stand tall, have confidence, you have the answer, and you know what to do.
And I hope this has been inspiring to you. I love to read your comments, so you can post them at SoundCloud. com/lisanatoli, right under this episode. And I’m just going to carry on. I really feel that I want to keep sharing these ideas of healing, and transformation, and happiness here on The Lisa Show, and I am just so grateful that we are together. I love you.
Welcome to the Lisa show, I am Lisa Natoli and I’m so happy that you’re here. Today it’s Episode three and I’m going to be continuing the discussion from last week dealing with physical symptoms that’s in Episode two. So today is part two of episode two. So if you haven’t listened to Episode two yet I encourage you to stop this audio and go back and listen to that first and then come back here.
I gave steps, I actually gave you everything you need to know in episode two and I invited you to really imagine that you’re in the doctor’s office, you’re with the greatest healer who ever lived who is the healer within, the Christ within you and to start working with the great healer.
I also gave my own story of dealing with physical symptoms. So episode two is just a great foundation, I really did give you everything that you need to know. Why am I doing the part two? Because a lot of people have the information and they are not seeing any change whatsoever. I want to talk about that here in Episode three, I’m going to be talking about really do you really want to be healed? That’s an important elements.
I’m going to be talking about what do you expect and I am going to be recapping the steps from episode two, I have quite a lot of notes again and I invite you to get a pen and a piece of paper. I also believe in the one visit, I really don’t believe that you need extended periods of time and more content and more information. I really do believe that you just need to keep it simple and I truly did give you everything in Episode two that you need to know.
One of the things that really is important is that this needs to sink in and so often if you’ve been around me as a teacher, I teach a course in miracles, I teach people how to heal themselves, how to help others, how to heal others and healing is very simple. It’s nothing more than a return to the awareness of your own wholeness, and you’re already whole, so it’s very simple.
All sickness is nothing more than isolation, it’s a belief in separation, it’s a retreat from others. So that means that if you are experiencing sickness that there are blocks and obstacles in your mind that need to be removed, so it’s very simple. If you’ve been around me as a teacher you know that I repeat thinks and I do that intentionally because if you think about how it’s been for you in the world as the world was teaching you the laws of time and space it was constant repetition that you arrived here whole and perfect. You had no idea of yourself as a body symptoms of other bodies you were just perfect whole light. And then the teaching of the world begins. Think how many times your parents had to teach you mommy, mama, mummy, mummy, mummy, daddy, daddy, daddy, mommy, mommy, mommy, until you finally say it. Is this constant repetition trying to teach you, how to say a word. Then there’s all about pointing that’s a cat, that’s a dog. You’ve had a lot of repetition to learn that your body and now you may need repetition to return to your wholeness but you don’t actually. The time is up to you for how long you step into the change, a new state of being.
I really want to start with the steps that I gave last week and again please if you have not listened to Episode two please stop this audio now and go back there. All of the links to the Lisa show is on my website lisanatoli.com. If you look at the top of the website there are pages and you can always find the Lisa show under podcast. If you would like to receive episodes as soon as I post them please follow the show on Sound Cloud.com.
You can also leave your comments there, I love getting the mail I really do, I love hearing from you, I love questions, I can answer them here on the show. Especially love to hear when you’re practicing and you see results, I already received many emails even on day one from last week of people who took those steps that I gave applied them and immediately saw pain disappear and I love that.
I love these messages that start out with, oh my God, OMG, wow, yea, and that excitement that you feel when you experience change. Another big difficulty that people have with healing is falling back into old patterns. So you may experience a moment of total freedom, you’re free of the symptoms and then you experience them again and so you think that the healing didn’t work and I’m going to talk about that today because it’s very important that you step into a new way of being and you live there.
I am creating a healing program called The Healing Cure as I mentioned last week it’s been a vision of mine for years to create a healing program. I’m going to be putting all this content in a very simple way there. I have no parks that span back from 2009 with all of this content and I just want to really just bring it into a very concise way that’s very simple and easy to follow that you see results.
I’m big big big on results. I want you to see change, I want you to move out of hoping, wishing, praying. I want you to really just move into a state where you know you have the power and the ability to heal. So often people think that healing is complicated, that it’s impossible, it’s difficult it’s not.
Healing surely is a return to the awareness of your own wholeness. So anyone who is a healer is someone who is helping another return to the awareness of their own wholeness. I love what of Course in Miracles says about healing, to heal is to make happy. So you’re coming back into a state of happiness again and that’s all it is.
We’re going to begin with the first steps, if you’re dealing with physical symptoms. I really want you to imagine that you are in the physician’s office, you’re with the Great Physician, the healer within and you’re working now with this presence and this power and we’re going to remove the blocks and the obstacles in your thinking that are blocking the awareness of love’s presence.
I love what a Course in Miracles says that God is love and that’s absolutely true. So if we were to change out the word love’s presence, you’re coming back to the awareness of God’s presence and this is what you are. This is your true identity, you are pure and light, you are eternal, you are changeless, you are a creator and now you’re coming back to the awareness of that.
So all sickness is nothing more than isolation, a retreat from others. It’s a belief that you’ve been alone, it is an imbalance. There’s been a way of living for you where you’ve been living off centered, disconnected from your source. So the most important thing is, do you really want healing? And almost everyone says yes.
Whenever I asked someone do you want healing? They just say yes. What I have discovered over the years is that probably 90% don’t really mean it. They just say yes. So I want you to really look into your mind and I want you to really see if you really want healing. So healing is going to require you to change.
When most people say they want healing, they want the magic wand method. They’re just sitting around and they’re hoping that some day they’ll just spring out of the bed or out of their life of boredom of pain and they will just be magically healed and they will have energy and they’re vibrant and they’re happy and that’s not been my experience.
It really does require you to change everything really. You have to change your thoughts, your words, you must forgive, you must release grievances, you must find the blocks and the obstacles, the judgments and let them go. It requires a radical change in the way that you have been thinking about yourself, the way you’ve been showing up in life. So that really is the first place that we begin. Do you really want healing? Are you ready to change? Are you ready to take responsibility for everything that seems to be happening to you, so that’s the first thing. It can’t just be lip service, it can’t just be a yes that you say as a word. You have to want to change.
As soon as you say yes, I really mean it I am really ready to take the steps, I am ready to change the way I think, I am ready to choose new emotions, I am ready to show up in a new way, I am ready to do the work then it’ll be very easy for you. That otherwise you are just waiting for a miracle, you’re just waiting for something to change and nothing can change because the world that you think you see including your body is a reflection of the thoughts that you’re holding about yourself.
That’s very important that we start there because if you have been wanting a healing and not experiencing a healing to me that’s the block and that requires honesty to say, okay I don’t really want healing. I don’t really, I would like to continue to be the way that I’ve been and hold my grievances and hold my judgments and no one does that consciously of course.
So healing now is becoming conscious of what you’ve been thinking, what you’ve been saying, what you’ve been doing and making a decision to change. I’ve talked a lot in the past over the years about how I used to constantly say I want peace, I don’t want conflict I want peace, and I was always experiencing conflict. Until finally I recognized that I wanted the conflict, I was comfortable with that. It was my comfort zone.
The moment that I really realized I don’t want conflict, you don’t want to attack myself anymore, I don’t want to attack others anymore. I truly want peace, then peace was available to me on that day and whenever I slide back into conflict, I can see it for what it is and I get out so fast. I don’t hang around there anymore, I remember I don’t want this.
I don’t want to be a complainer, I don’t want to be a victim, I don’t want to judge myself, I don’t want to judge others and you feel when you’re in that old way of being you feel it so quickly now, so you can recognize it and there you can choose and make a decision to move into another way of being.
So that’s the first thing to really honestly look at, do I really want healing? Am I ready to change? There’s no right or wrong answer for that but you will really begin to see why healing has not been happening for you.
The second thing is, do you expect healing? This is a big one because we’ve been taught here in time and space that healing is difficult that in many cases it’s impossible. It’s so difficult to heal cancer, it’s difficult to heal tumors and we’ve been really taught that it doesn’t always work and if it does work then you might get symptoms again and then you’ll just keep getting worse and then you’ll die. So we don’t really have a thought system of expecting a full healing or you’re released completely and totally.
Last night my husband and I were about to watch a video on the computer and the sound wasn’t very loud and he said, “Let me go get something that I can plug in to make the sound louder” and he plugged one thing in and it didn’t work. I thought okay well I guess it’s not going to work and he said, “Oh no no wait, I know what will work”, and he went out of the room again and he came back and he had so much certainty and I said, “This is going to work”? He said, “This one will definitely work”, and he’s unplugging the cord and he’s plugging it in and it worked perfectly.
He was able to turn the volume up on this thing and I said to him, “That’s how healing occurs”. You need that kind of certainty, there was no doubt in his mind. He knew that what he was about to do was definitely going to work, there was no doubt. There was only a certainty this one will work.
So to have that kind of expectation many of us do not come into healing with that kind of expectation. We just hope it will work. We hope the cancer will go away and we hope the pain will go away. We don’t actually think it will, we just think I have to live with this. We already have an entire belief system of living with these symptoms. We’ve just resigned ourselves to a life of pain. So what do you expect? Do you expect a healing.
I want to go through the steps that I gave last week, kind of a recap. First one is to list the symptoms. List your symptoms down on paper, this is only for you and then step two is to sit quietly into really ask within what is the message that this experience is trying to communicate to me. Really find out.
All symptoms serve to communicate imbalance, there’s a block there somewhere. There’s been stress, anxiety, fear and you have the ability to unblock this energy and direct the energy in new ways. You have the ability and the power to change your mind, you have the ability and the power to make me choices. Your natural state of being is perfect health.
In your natural state you are in touch with your inner voice, you’re in touch with your intuition, you’re centered, your balanced, you’re at peace and you’re listening to this voice and you’re following it and you’re being yourself. I talked a lot about this in episode two. Is you’re coming back to a state of being authentic and being happy like child’s.
The way that I see it is that all symptoms are blocked energy. So what you’re doing is you’re taking responsibility now for where you’ve been off balance. I absolutely love the responsibility for sight prayer in A Course in Miracles. I am responsible for what I see, I choose the feelings I experience and I decide upon the goal I would achieve and everything that seems to happen to me I have asked for and received as I have asked.
This is the reason why I truly do believe I gave you everything in episode two, because if you can start here and just simply take total responsibility for everything that seems to happen to you and make changes in your thinking, make changes in your emotions, choose new emotions, choose to live in gratitude, you will see change, you will see results but what typically happens is we have we have pain, we have some kind of a sickness, some kind of a disease and we don’t take responsibility for it. We just think this is happening to me. We believe that we’re victims of external circumstances.
We don’t recognize that whatever disease or sickness or pain that is occurring is coming from your own thinking. It’s a state of imbalance and so that’s very important to just say okay I caused this. I have done this to myself and it is this that I would undo and to not make yourself guilty for it don’t stay stuck there just to say okay, “I caused this, I am responsible for this, this is nothing more than a result of me living off balance separate from God, separate from myself, separate from others, and I’m taking total responsibility, I am responsible for what I see”.
Then the second part is I choose the feelings I experience, I choose that you’re not a victim. So when you’re in a space of pain you might think well I can’t choose to be happy. I’m in so much pain right. Now you can, you choose the feelings you want to experience, you are so powerful and you choose gratitude, you choose love, you choose appreciation.
I choose the feelings I experience and I decide upon the goal I would achieve. When I asked for you to do after you list your symptoms, after you really listen to what is the message that this experience is trying to communicate to you, then you decide on the changes that you’re going to make. You decide on the outcome and I want you to really be bold about this. If you have a tumor I want you to see the tumor gone. It’s gone, the cancer is gone, the pain is gone, your eyesight is perfect.
And so often we just think well it’s not actually going to be a physical healing it’s just going to be an emotional healing. That’s your belief then. So you actually don’t believe in physical healing, so now we’re back to what do you expect. So if you expect a total physical healing where whatever it is that’s the disease is gone, the symptoms are gone and you expect it and you’re not waiting for someone to do it for you, you are now making the decisions in your own mind. You are changing the way you think, the way you speak, you are changing your energy and you’re saying okay this can be done.
The reason you know it can be done is because others have done it and so I asked for you in episode two to write down your intended results, what does it look like when you’re totally totally healed? So maybe now you don’t move very quickly, you stay inside, you’re thinking of sickness all the time. In the healing you’re centered, you have a lot of energy, you’re balanced, your energy is flowing perfectly, you’re communicating, you’re authentic, you’re acknowledging your wholeness and you’re living from this place.
It looks a certain way. It feels a certain way and so healing is to step into that now. Just step into your healing and accept it. And that can feel very difficult when you’re experiencing pain but again you have the power and the ability to do this. I love how a course in miracles Jesus says healing is an ability that must be learnt. This is in chapter seven, it’s an ability. It’s like anything else.
So we’ve taught ourselves how to be bawdy, these how to be separate from others, we’ve lost our ability to create. So what you’re doing here is you’re looking at your belief system, what are you believing in and if you’re experiencing sickness there’s a belief in sickness and I love how Jesus and in the Course in Miracles talks about the collapse of time. That the time factor is up to you.
So many people just think I’m never going to experience a healing, so they never do and many people might think well, it will take two months or it will take six months or will take a year but it could take two hours, it could take two seconds, it could take just an instant. So I ask for you to not limit your healing by your own beliefs. Just do the work, the simplicity of the work is list the symptoms find out what these symptoms and this experience is trying to communicate to you.
Like I said all sickness to me is imbalance, you have not been being yourself. You’re coming now back to a state of wholeness where you are going to begin living authentically and for many people that is the scariest thing in the world to do. For many people the easiest thing in the world is to just keep being sick then you don’t have to show up in your life.
So now you’re making a decision. Are you ready to show up in a new way. So just really listen what is going on here, what is this symptom, this experience communicating to me. In my experience most symptoms are things that are kept inside. You’re not expressing yourself fully, you’re not showing up fully, you’re being the way you think other people think you should be and there’s a tremendous amount of healingness. Like if you start showing up authentically you may believe that you will be criticized, you’ll be told to be quiet, you may believe that you’re going to lose your job, your relationships. So we hold the light that we are with then with all these blocks and these obstacles. So it’s no wonder that there is sickness and now I ask for you to think of this as a new beginning for yourself. This is the place where we began and you choose to think and feel the thoughts that you want to think, the emotions that you want to experience you are the decider, you are the chooser no one else.
So this really is moving you out of a space of hoping for a miracle, you’re opening up a door for possibilities and then I ask for you to really look at what fear is there in showing up authentically. Are you ready to release the blockages? Are you ready to show up in a new way? I love that video online of that parachute or I’ve talked about this guy so many times but he was a military parachuter and he actually never went to war but part of his training was to jump out of planes and when he did that he completely wrecked his spine, he couldn’t walk at all. He had to crawl on the floor, he made a decision that he was done with that way of being. That he was going to show up in a new way and he was going to heal his spine.
He started so slowly, he tried to find yoga teachers to help him and nobody would help him because they said you’re beyond hope. And he found this one yoga instructor who agreed to work with him and all he did in the beginning was just start to move on the floor, he couldn’t walk, he couldn’t do anything and he shows his progress in this video online and he just never gave up. He showed up for those exercises every single day and he started to see improvement.
What often happens is when we wait for total healing in this instant and when we don’t get it we think oh well to me you really need to show up and start making changes now. Slight baby changes and to always be looking for the improvement. So often people they just, they’re all or nothing that’s my experience when I talk to people and that was me for a long time, very extremist it’s not happening.
I tried that and it didn’t work but if you really truly expect a healing and you expect change you will show up every single day and you will move in new ways, you will think in new ways. So this parachuter guy he is videotaping him moving on the floor and you’re seeing him get a little bit more strength. Every day he’s getting a little bit more strength and suddenly he is standing and then he’s doing headstands and in the beginning he couldn’t stand he kept falling.
He tried to stand and there was just no muscles in his legs or in his back and he would fall on the floor and he would get right back up and he just did this every single day and by the end of the video he’s running, so he got it. It’s a kind of video that will make you cry because it’s so simple, he wasn’t sitting in a chair waiting for some miraculous healing, he recognized okay I need to change the way that I have been showing up and most people who are sick are simply sitting in a chair feeling sorry for themselves. You have to stop that. You really have to say that is enough of that. I am done with feeling sorry for myself and you start where you are and you expect change to occur and don’t expect it overnight really just say okay I’m going to really begin it, this is my day, this is my new beginning and whatever it takes I’m going forward now.
And if you don’t see a total healing, you’re always looking for improvements that’s what I suggest because the mind is very much all or nothing. If it doesn’t see 100% improvement it just immediately gives up and says oh well it didn’t work. So what I ask of you is to expect to participate in the healing process, to decide on the changes that you are going to make and then make them. Start living from the place of healing, you’re no longer a victim, you’re no longer waiting, you’re no longer praying to God, You’re recognizing that your holiness is already here and that all you have to do is say okay I’m not dead, I’m not dead yet. I don’t care how close you are to death, if you’re listening to this audio you’re not dead.
Whatever state you’re in, that’s where you begin. I have a friend who’s has cancer of the uterus, she also has a failing liver and cirrhosis and she believes she’s going to die and so she’s in a nursing home now. She’s not old, she’s the most relaxed I’ve ever seen and she looks beautiful. She’s so clear I can tell her mind is and so at peace I really never seen of this clear before and she was laughing and she was so beautiful but she’s in a chair and she has a catheter. She can’t get up from the chair and walked to the bathroom. She’s prepared to die.
I think she’s ready to die actually, I think she’s wanting to go and that’s a big one because so often people who are sick don’t want to be healed, I ask you to look at that and so if you think you’re dying and you’re taking total responsibility for what seems to be happening to you, you don’t say I’m dying because that’s you being a victim and something’s just happening to you and you’re not the cause of it you would then change it to I’m killing myself, I want to go, I don’t want to be here, that’s taking total responsibility.
For many people that’s just a big step but that will be the change where you recognize okay, I really don’t want to be here anymore and then you can just relax. Now you can enjoy, now you can really say okay I’m done with this human experience. If you’re not done with this human experience and you want to have that kind of vitality and energy to bring back your enthusiasm and your joy and zest for life again then you must say that’s enough of that.
I asked my friend I said why can’t you walk to the bathroom and she doesn’t want the catheter she said. Oh my God I want this thing out I said, why don’t you take it out? And she says because I can’t walk to the bathroom. Do you see this is what we do, we just make a decision she’s already has her expectation in place that she’s never going to walk again. So she never will walk again but in a decision to walk again she would start developing those muscles in her leg again just from the chair you can start right from where you are to start lifting your legs up. Like if you did it right now when your listening to me.
You would see oh I feel my muscles, I feel my leg muscles, oh there they ar. You move your arms, oh my arm muscles. Oh look at that, you breathe in. You breathe in deeply and you feel you actually begin to feel yourself changing. You start to feel energy like, oh yes there it is and you make a decision that you are going to start moving in that direction of your healing.
I said to my friend why can’t they give you a walker, just lean on a walker and go to the bathroom and she said, oh I can’t. When I got home later that night I thought well she got from the bed to the chair so somewhere she does have the strength because if there was no possibility she would have been able to make it into the chair and again everyone has to decide for themselves what they want.
And that’s why I never interfere like I always have to hear someone say, I want to change, I want healing. This is why in the 40 day program for transformation and an online program that I created. People have to say yes before they get into the program it’s the same with all the programs that we have of the teachings of God foundation, that you have to want it, you have to say yes. I’m ready to change and then you come in because I’m not a magician and you’re not a magician but healing is totally natural.
I want you to experience it, I want you to really say that when you step into a new way of being and you just make a decision I am now going forward no looking back. Change begins to occur and then watch your mind when it slips back into feeling sorry for yourself again or feeling like this isn’t working.
I was talking in episode two of how for myself I had symptoms for six years since January 2012 of what the doctors said was autoimmune disease and I kept waiting for healing I kept saying I’m not ready to teach, I’m not ready to do videos, I’m not ready to do a radio show, I’m not ready to express myself because I have all these symptoms and I’ll do it later, I’ll do it later when all the symptoms go away.
My thought was is that when I’m healed I would teach others to heal, that I would create an online healing program and that I would inspire people to do this work, I would get all of the notes out of all of my journals and I would just start to give it, I would put it down in a way that was easily assessable, practical and simple and I would just encourage people to start showing up in a new way.
Right there is my treatment for healing. So I already had the vision for it, when I’m here old I will get my journals out of storage, I will start communicating this message to others, I will take the time to put these notes onto the computer, into a program. I just had a vision for it, and I knew okay then you have to step into that. This is how healing is accomplished, you’re not waiting anymore.
I asked for you to really have a vision for yourself and stop waiting, what would you be like when healing has occurred? And often I find that when there’s sickness or pain or disease or doing something you don’t really want to be doing. So find out what it is that you would love to do, really step into it and say okay I’m doing it. I’m not waiting anymore.
Do all those things on your bucket list. Whatever it is that you’ve had in mind that you want to do, start to do it now and just know that it’s your thoughts and your expectations that do the work and now you are collaborating and cooperating with it.
So just have fun with this, like really go okay, do I really want healing, do I really want to change, am I really ready to let go of my grievances and my judgments and how will I show up when healing has been accomplished? Admit that something has not been working and choose to change. That’s it, you choose to change, you are a creator, you are so powerful.
What does full recovery look like? And I want you to write it down. What will you be doing? What will you be like? What will you be saying, write it all down, put it on paper and then you go be it and then watch how the mind starts to say I can’t and this is the work. This is where you’re saying, yes I can. That’s why I love that video so much of that paratrooper because he really couldn’t move and he had not been able to move for a very long time and he said, yes I can, oh yes I can, I can lift my leg.
I have also a friend of mine who had an accident is kind of funny now that I know the outcome but at the time it was not a funny story. When he was 19, he’s he’s in his 60s now, he used to do bull riding in Texas and he was riding a bull. The bull somehow he got pulled off the bull and the bull pulled his arm off, like j=he ripped his arm off and he at the time didn’t want anyone’s help he was this real macho guy and his arm was hanging on by a thread.
He got off the bull, he left the ring. People were racing after him to help him and he just was like, I don’t need anyone’s help he didn’t realize his arm had been pulled off at this stage. They got him to the hospital and he said they wanted to just cut the arm off and throw it away and he was like, no way no way. You just so it back on, he didn’t care if it didn’t work, he just wanted that arm and so he made them sow it back on.
And he describes that there was zero feeling in the arm. No movement he just had it in a sling I guess and it just sat there lifeless and he had the thought or someone told him I don’t remember which but that if he put a little rubber ball in his hand and he started squeezing it that he would start rebuilding the muscles and this is just a beautiful thing because you start to really trust and feel excited about the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
So here he’s been told that arm is just never going to work and he said, oh yes it is. Somewhat back on and he said he sat in a chair and he just all day squeezed that little ball and he said at first for a long time there was no change whatever but it didn’t matter he kept squeezing that little rubber ball and he said all of a sudden he could feel his fingers or he could feel something.
And that was a state of improvement and he kept at it, he just kept at it and he started to notice that life was coming back into the arm. He’s now in his sixty’s, he has full use of the arm, he builds houses and buildings. He’s a general contractor and he has a whole team that works with him and for him and he sensed there still some pain there sometimes but he has full range of motion in that arm.
These are the stories and inspire me. Where can you begin? Where can you begin today and move in that direction where you’re moving out of that old way of being or you’re just being a victim and that you’ve resigned. That’s what healing is to me, it’s coming back into your aliveness and you’re saying okay, I’m just going to be making tiny little changes in the way that I show up and I’m going to be consistent about it, that’s it.
You just see the outcome, you just say okay this is just going to lay down and die anymore. Like I’m moving now in the direction of the improvement and all you’re doing is watching your thoughts, any feelings of fear, of guilt, of shame, of judgments, worry, depression, anxiety. These are just energy feels.
To me healing is where your of allowing the energy to start flowing, you’re starting to really step into whatever it is your function, your happiness, your joy, you’re being authentically you and your just allowing yourself to let the energy flow, you are no longer blocking it with your old beliefs, your all thoughts. You’re stepping into a new way of being and this is very scary for many people to step into this new state of being.
I invite you to do it. As always I invite you to get a copy of A Course in Miracles, it is an amazing mind training program where you’re training your mind in a systematic way to a new perception of everyone in everything and that’s what you’re doing here. You’re learning that healing is an ability and you have this ability, you have this power, you’re not alone, you’re coming back into the awareness of your own wholeness, your own happiness, your own joy, and you’re extending it.
And you’re just recognizing okay, I’m going to do all the things I wanted to do and I’m not going to do the things I don’t want to do. I think that’s important also. And so often we’re doing things because we think we have to, and we’re not expressing, I don’t like this, I don’t want to do this because we’re afraid of what will happen if we express authentically.
As you keep living in that way off center, off balance not expressing what you really want is you start to manifest physical symptoms and so this is a return to wholeness now, you’re returning now to a state where you are expressing. You’re just being you, for me that’s what true healing is. You’re being a happy child free, playful, joyful, loving and you’re receiving love and you’re watching for all the ways that you either push love away or you block it or you don’t give it, that’s it.
Now you’re cooperating and collaborating with the healing process. This is really the place where I really invite people to get rid of the idea of hoping for a miracle, wishing for a miracle, wanting a miracle, that’s all victim, that’s all being helpless, that’s all being weak, you’re waiting for the magic wand method and that will never work.
Now what you’re doing is you’re saying yes, I can absolutely see that I can do this, I can absolutely see that I could start moving in a new direction. You’re just allowing yourself to be patient and so again like why I love these stories and where they take time because so many of us just believe and instantaneous healing and I really truly do believe that it is because of some of the stories we’ve heard from Jesus from 2000 years ago where he healed the sick, raised the dead and mud on someone’s eyes and suddenly they could see perfectly and that’s possible.
A lot of people stop themselves because they don’t see instant results, they don’t see instant healing but as long as you’re just always moving forward and looking for the improvement and if you really just feel like it’s just getting worse that’s okay too. You’re like I’m still going forward, I’m not going to lay down and die anymore. Unless you want to, click if you want to I’m happy for you because that’s what you want and so now you’re just looking at it, like what is sickness serving for me. Maybe is serving something for you, where you don’t get to show up any more, you don’t have to.
You just get to stay home and no one bothers you and people take care of you and bring you food and love on you and some maybe it is what you want to just keep being that person who doesn’t have to do much. In the recognition that this is what you want, you will become very happy because you realize all whole I want this tumor, I want this sickness, I want this because now I get the love that I never knew how to get otherwise. But it also brings total responsibility to you where you can say okay, I don’t want that anymore. I can ask for what I want now.
I don’t have to be in a bed for people to give me love, I can ask for it now, I can give it and you start showing up in a whole new way. You say, I’m done with the old way.
So I really thank you for listening and I invite you to live these ideas. Use them, not much will change for you if you don’t do anything. If you just listen and say all this all sounds nice and this is why I encourage you to get the paper, get the pen, write down your symptom, listen to what these symptoms are telling you and make the changes in your thinking. You just move the channel and you say, I can, I definitely have this ability, I have the ability to live in joy, to live in love, to live in appreciation, to live in gratitude.
I can make small changes, I can move in new ways, yes I have that power, and you really just okay wow I’m here, I love that because now you will see changes and at the same time you probably will see things disrupting around you as you move out of that old space. Relationship start to fall away, you suddenly have no tolerance for all the things you’ve been tolerant for. That’s part of the healing. Give yourself the gift of healing, be patient and just begin. Really begin to look within your own mind to see what’s going on there, to see what you really want.
I’m so grateful for you being here and listening and I look forward to seeing you guys who will be attending out in San Francisco. My husband Bill and I are heading out to San Francisco California for the annual Course in Miracles Conference and if you are there please come find me I would love to give you a big kiss and a hug, very grateful and keep sending me messages, I’d love to hear from you.
