Secret to Alleviating Chronic Pain?
Secret to Alleviating Chronic Pain? I once hired a kid from Arizona State University to help me with marketing. He asked me to explain what I do so he could prepare some materials. I thought about that for...
I never knew anything about the art of healing or massage or energy work or anything related to that. I was just a guy who had done a lot of athletics in his life.
And who, from time to time, had suffered certain injuries and issues himself.
It never occurred to me once that I could make healing a lifetime practice.
The particular school that I trained at was geared toward what many people would call touchy feely, woo-woo, “out there” concepts. We talked a lot about energy, stuff that I’d never really heard of before.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered that didn’t bother me at all.
In fact, very frequently, I felt like the normal guy in a cast of wacky characters. I was the mainstream dude among all these sensitive artist types. But I never doubted that the people I was training with were very committed to helping other human beings heal.
They all brought a very sincere energy to the pursuit. So it didn’t matter to me if they were dressed in a mumu, or had purple-dyed hair, braided dreadlocks, or interesting jewelry.
No, what mattered to me was their intention.
And over and over again, I found that their intention was not only pure but entirely geared toward the betterment of the patients they worked on.
Mostly, I found what I learned at my therapy school was who I was, the skills and sensitivities and ideas and understandings that I brought to each individual patient.
As a healer, I believe that’s the most important thing you can ever learn. And I’ll always be grateful to the school I trained at for that.
