One thing that is impressed upon an apprentice is that success rate means absolutely nothing. Each individual is going to be healed or not, according to what they want to do—how badly they really want to find health and balance.
Sometimes people choose to have a particular disorder long before they were ever born. It’s part of the life experience they came here to have. In that case, it doesn’t matter what kind of healing you do. You aren’t going to affect them, or make any change in their condition; their agenda has been fixed.
So, the very first step, the very first rule, when you approach somebody to heal them is to have your spirit helpers ask their spirit, “Can this be done? Is this an allowable thing?”
Sometimes the individual’s spirit says, “No, don’t bother. Don’t go in. It’s none of your business.” Sometimes you can do some band-aid stuff, give the person a little extra boost of energy, and they’ll feel better for a while. That’s all you can do.
Sometimes, the individuals kind of know that already.
Sometimes they’ve decided that they want to check out and this is the way they have decided to go. One part of them, in their conscious daily life, is saying, “Oh, heal me, heal me.” But the rest of them has already made the decision to die.
Some people are sort of straddling the fence; they haven’t really decided yet whether they want to live or die.
Sometimes you can encourage them to stay and work on healing themselves and sometimes you cannot.
There isn’t a healer alive who can heal somebody. You can ignite change in someone else’s body and their system; you can ignite change in their emotional self; you can ignite change in their total belief system—and that always reverberates out into the physical—but you can’t heal someone else.
You can provide a boost to bring them over the hump. You can remind the system how it’s supposed to work. You can intercede with spirits. But it’s the same story: you can take the horse to water, and then it’s the horse’s decision. Will it drink or won’t it?
You can’t force it.
So you have to give up any attachment that you might have to succeeding, because you just do what you’re shown, what you’re instructed. You give as much as you can and that’s all you can do. As some people say, you pray for them. The people themselves have to do the rest. They’re the only ones that can truly finish the process of healing themselves.
Love and Song,
