The Path To The Empowered Heart – Carolyn Myss, PH.D.

“Healing is simple, but it is not easy.  The steps are few, yet they demand great effort.

Step 1:  Commit yourself to heal all the way to the source of the pain.  This means turning inward and coming to know your wounds.

Step 2:  Once ‘inside,’ identify your wounds.  Have they become a ‘wound power’ within your present life?  If you have converted your wounds into power, confront why you might fear healing.  As you identify your wounds, have someone ‘witness’ them and their influence upon your development.  You need at least one person, a therapist or a friend perhaps, who is capable of working with you in this way.

Step 3:  Once you have verbalized your wounds, observe how you use them to influence or even control the people around you as well as yourself.  Do you ever say you are not feeling well because of them in order to cancel an appointment, for instance, when in fact you are feeling fine?

Do you ever give yourself permission to quit something, or not try at all, by dwelling on your past and therefore encouraging depression?  Are you afraid choosing to heal yourself will require you to leave behind some or much of your familiar life?  These are questions you need to address honestly because they are the most significant cluster of reasons that people fear becoming healthy.  Don’t be afraid to seek therapeutic help in getting through this step, or any of the others.

Step 4:  Identify the good that can and has come from your wounds.  Maybe telling your experience has helped another person.  Start living within the consciousness of appreciation and gratitude for your deepening wisdom, and if you have to — ‘fake it until you make it.’  Initiate a spiritual practice and stick to it.  Do not be casual about your spiritual discipline.  Plan your meditation or quiet time.

Step 5:  Once you have established the consciousness of appreciation, you can take on the challenge of forgiveness.  As appealing as forgiveness is in theory, it is an extremely unattractive personal action for most people, mainly because the true nature of forgiveness remains misunderstood.

Forgiveness is not the same as telling the person who harmed you, ‘It’s okay,’ which is more or less the way most people view it.  Rather, forgiveness is a complex act of consciousness, one that liberates the psyche and soul from the need for personal vengeance and the perception of oneself as a victim.  More than releasing from blame the people who caused our wounds, forgiveness means releasing the control that the perception of victimhood has over our psyches.

The liberation that forgiveness generates comes in the transition to a higher state of consciousness — not just in theory, but energetically and biologically.  In fact, the consequence of a genuine act of forgiveness borders on the miraculous.

Step 6:  Think love.  Live in appreciation and gratitude.  Invite change into your life, if only through your attitude.  And remind yourself continually of the message of all spiritual masters worth their salt: keep your spirit in the present time.  In the language of Jesus, ‘Leave the dead and get on with your life. God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.’  And as Buddha taught, ‘There is only now.’

Channeling – What Is It?

“Channeling is the act of connecting with a spiritual entity and receiving transformative information from them. The person that transmits this knowledge is called a channel. Channeling is different from mediumship in that a medium communicates with people who have recently died, whereas a channel communicates with a spiritual teacher. Both practices are equally valuable.”

Esther Hicks channels Abraham

“Abraham is not a singular consciousness as you feel that you are in your singular bodies. Abraham is collective consciousness. There is a stream or river of consciousness. As one of you asks a question, there are many, many points of consciousness that are funneling through what feels to be one perspective, (because there is, in this case, one human, Esther, who is interpreting or articulating it) so it appears singular to you. We are multidimensional and multi-faceted and, certainly, multi-consciousness.”

Abraham Hicks on 8/29/99


“Gratitude is the recognition of the blessing that your life is — even with all its pain and suffering.  It takes little effort to see how so many in the world are suffering and in pain.  When we think of it, there are people whose circumstances allow little hope of a better life.

Too often, especially in Western society, we look at each other and feel jealous or envious.  Simply taking a few moments to have gratitude has a huge effect on your mental attitude…

You suddenly recognize how blessed you are.”

Your Wings Develop Through Struggle

“When the butterfly is assisted out of it’s cocoon, it cannot fly.  It needs the struggle of getting out it’s cocoon in order for the wings to be functional.
Many times we see our friends and family experiencing hard times and struggles.  We, as humans, become compassionate and want to help.
Know this truth:  Like the butterfly,
this person needs the situation that they are in, in order for their wings to operate. This situation is only helping them through the process of becoming beautiful and operational.
Don’t rescue them, just love and support them through the pain and let them know they

are doing a great job struggling to get out from their cocoon. Eventually, the struggle will cause the cocoon to break and they will be free.

If you are struggling right now like this butterfly, don’t give up. Your breakthrough is just around the corner. Every experience is an opportunity to practice self-love.
As a woman who is Bipolar, It took me many many
years to unlock the key and understand how this works. This has nothing to do with religion. This process works as our abilities develop.

Do I experience fears now, Hell yeah!
Do I still at times let my fear stop me?
Yes, but I take a few days and take steps back and calibrate, then I move forward again until I am comfortable in that space.”

If You Get Disappointing Results

“Whenever something that you think you want does not unfold, it is for one of two reasons:

  1. Either your habit of vibration, your belief, your dominant vibration that you are offering relative to the subject, doesn’t match what you think your desire is.
  2. Or you and your desire are a perfect match, and this thing you think you want just doesn’t match, and so the Universe doesn’t deliver it.”

Abraham Hicks,  11/1/98
