In my book Evolve Your Unconscious Mind, the secret to shifting consciousness I challenge many of humanity’s foundational truths. Truths such as the power of one and duality and polarity thinking. If we have the courage to examine our foundational truths then we have the capacity to change our world completely.
I am often asked is there an ultimate truth and I guess there is but in the mean time truth is what you make it. Each individual operates according to their particular truth and their truth informs them of how to make sense or meaning of the world and the things in it. The ultimate truth for me at this point of time is that everything is energy and it is the consciousness that inhabits our human form that is the meaning maker. So what does this mean in practical terms? Well depending up your truth paradigm you will assign the events in your life to have particular cause and effect and a meaning or value judgment will be assigned to that cause and effect. For example medicine defines disease as something going wrong with the cell or the DNA or the cell has been invaded by a virus or bacteria. Usually they shy away from placing any further meaning, they describe the process according to their paradigm of cells and chemicals and the process is the meaning and truth. But you may have already noticed that science and medicine also keeps changing its mind on truth.
If you are a devout Christian or member of a religious group, usually illness is God’s will and the meaning is for punishment or learning. Most new age thinkers also attribute disease a similar meaning. Louise Hay has written many books giving her view of the meaning of illness. Some individuals place a greater emphasis on thoughts and beliefs and others emotional states. All philosophical systems whether they be called religion, science, free thought, all seek to understand cause and effect and attribute meaning. When we are growing up in our families were are both consciously and unconsciously taught the meaning of actions—you love me if you do this, you don’t love me if you do that.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with finding or attributing meaning, but you need to understand that another’s truth or meaning may not be your own. Living in the same culture does not even guarantee an agree-ance of meaning. So be mindful of the vast differences between genders, socio-economic groups and age generations. Can people with different meaning making systems work with each other? Absolutely, I often introduced a “left-field” meaning to my clients. At the time they probably thought I was a bit loopy, regardless of this healing still occurred. The still managed to shift there consciousness out of a long held truth that no longer supported them. Not because I was necessarily right but because the alternative truth metaphor was close enough. The key is to be aware that we are not all working with the same systems and despite that, we can still help each other and work together.
Try to be open to the truth of others, they don’t have to threaten your own truth—think of how many shades, hues and tints of green there are in nature, but in the end they are all green.
If you really rebel against another’s meaning try to look within and ask why you are having an ‘allergic’ reaction to their truth—how does it threaten you? My experience has been that when this happens there is often an element of truth in what they have said. Or alternatively, their truth is in direct opposition to the truth you personally hold as your personal gospel.
My role as an energy healer is to look at your patterns, identify how they all inter-relate and help you change you fundamental patterns when they no longer serve you. How do you know if they are no longer serving you? When you have decided that you are half the person that you can be and you have decided enough is enough and you want more – you want to live a life of passion and wonder.
