Is all Mind-Body-Spirit healing equal? Joe thought so.
Thank you, Joe, for inspiring today’s blog post. Today my goal is to help all you Blog-Buddies to question this common assumption. For instance, what if you search online about any of the categories for this blog? Will every method offered be identical, equally useful?
That’s worth asking. Especially since many of us fear “being judgmental.” Perhaps preferring the superior standards of “whatever.” 😉 Or touting an Age of Faith idea, like “If you really believe, that’s all that matters.” Blog-Buddies, do you think that idea holds up in our new Age of Awakening?
For instance, ever wonder about cutting cords of attachment? I’ve got an app for that skill in mind-body-spirt. Okay, not an app. But a trademarked system, 12 Steps to Cut Cords of Attachment®. Is it really “just the same” to substitute the 462,000 hits you can find on Google for related meditations and prayers and psychic ideas?
As a post-New-Age consumer, you may get a kick out of the following story.
Mind-Body-Spirit Ideas, Vaguely Similar?
Here’s an example. Straight from an RES session Joe had with me. In conclusion, I invited him to share an idea from the session that he found meaningful. My client had received a Healing Centerpiece: Thoughtfully selected. Powerfully effective for his aura. With plenty of explanation provided to help him understand the energy skills humanly.
So, what did this client tell me?
“Everything you said, I knew it all before. But it’s good to be reminded.” Sweet guy! He wanted to say something positive, you see.
Also he spoke honestly. Which always helps.
But was I going to let Joe’s session end there? No way!
Enter Discernment about Mind-Body-Spirit
Joe knew it all? Really? In his session of RES (Rosetree Energy Spirituality), Joe’s Healing Centerpiece was removing psychic coercion.
Here’s a quiz you can take before reading further, BTW. Find out if, like Joe, you “know it all.”
One Big Happy Mush of Mind-Body-Spirit
What exactly did Joe “know it all” about? For years, evidently, Joe had explored mind-body-spirit. Enthusiastically, he had assembled his personal understanding of emotional growth.
Mostly he had done psychic readings. Sometimes he got body work. Otherwise he’d search the Net, sampling all kinds of New Age sources.
Of course, a strong part of New Age Litany goes, “It’s all good. Because all of us are equal.”
Thus, Joe had been exposed to a lot in mind-body-spirit. Except, wait a minute.
So Far, Mind-Body-Spirit Had NOT
Done Any of This for Joe
After Joe’s astounding reaction, was I going to educate him a bit? You bet. Here’s my remembered version of the conversation that followed:
ROSE: Let’s explore what you just told me, Joe. Today I helped you to understand what psychic coercion actually is. Had you known that before?
JOE: Well, no.
ROSE: Today you were able to identify human-type problems that can be caused by psychic coercion. Did you know that before?
JOE: Well, no.
ROSE: Also you learned specifics about how to prevent getting psychic coercion stuck in your aura. Skills to make your life easier in the future. Did you already know that?
JOE: Well, no.
ROSE: If all the similar-sounding ideas were really all the same, how come you had so much to clean up?
ROSE: Let’s take this bit of educational inquiry just a bit further, okay?
ROSE: After I facilitated the healing part of your session, you got an idea about quantity. How much psychic coercion was removed from your aura today?
Our unit of measurement was “What would fit in one yellow school bus.”
And how much psychic coercion was removed? From you. Today. Enough to fill 49 school busses. Except that the last one wasn’t competely full. Remember?
JOE: Yeah, yeah.
At which point, we both laughed.
More Mind-Body-Spirit Progress for Joe
Joe was a great sport about all this. Most important, he was willing to listen. Which many clients wouldn’t have been.
Not to mention folks who never even become an RES client. Because they really, really, truly believe that that all mind-body-spirit healing is equal.
Others might be very strongly invested in beliefs from the New Age years. So far they haven’t read The New Strong. Or even enjoyed a freebie in the form of an online workshop, The New Strong — Free Intro. So they have no glimmer of the shocking truth. Post-New-Age, many of those sweet old practices have become dead ends.
Bless his heart, Joe has gone on to have several more sessions with RES Energy HEALING Skills. As a result, he’s grown a lot.
How Kind Is It, Really
Telling Folks that “All Mind Body Spirit Work Is Equal”?
For years I’ve been hearing the idea of “All mind-body-spirit is the same, really. ” Or “It’s all good.”
Perhaps that includes criticism that (according to some Amazon reviewers of my books), I’m supposedly arrogant. When I say, “This skill set definitely works. Other approaches don’t necessarily work as well.”
Hey, that’s true. Not that I expect strangers to take my word for it. Energetic literacy can show anyone the truth. At least if you develop good skills.
- Because Stage One Energetic Literacy is what most folks have. A sweet beginning. But just for beginners. (Even somebody in Enlightenment can be illiterate about energy, you know.)
- Stage Three Energetic Literacy is like word literacy. If you can read the words on this screen, you have word literacy. Not that big a deal, once you’ve learned it. Yet indispensible.
Equally indispensible is real energetic literacy. Once learned, you can tell for yourself what works. Versus “Nice try.”
Maybe you’ll decide that you favor not-RES. Perhaps you’d get better results from other resources within mind-body-spirit. Then more power to you!
Whatever you decide, you’re going to live the consequences. That goes for your choices about mind-body-spirit. Plus everything else.
Just the fact that you’ve read all the way to the end of this article… Suggests a certain thoroughness on your part. Excellent.
Feel free to comment away. Do you agree or disagree with what was written here? Have you talked with friends who are rock-solid, nearly Fundamentalist, certain that they already “know it all”?
