Many people have tarot card, astrology readings, psychics and/or hypnotherapists for post-hypnotic suggestions for weight loss, smoke cessation, anxiety, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive behaviors and the list goes on.
Magical cures and mystical interventions will give relief temporarily, but eventually the issue resurfaces, because the root cause that created the issue was not addressed. Finding the root cause takes you on a journey of self-discovery through your mind, body and spirit, whereby you can eliminate the need for band-aids, second opinions and empty promises.
While I am not opposed to tarot card or astrology readings, psychics or post-hypnotic suggestions, they are ‘quick fixes’ for which a more indepth approach is needed. Many people go to psychics, who pronounce a person had a certain past life or another, with no processing or conclusion as to how that past life is affecting the current life. In order to resolve how a past life is affecting the current life the person needs to experience their own past life and process the issues that are playing out on today’s stage.
Prevention is far superior for health care than treating the illness or dis-ease in progress. This is not to say, that the illness or dis-ease can not be eliminated–it can, but it generates a sense of fear and vulnerability, which exacerbates the illness or dis-ease. This is the very reason the quick fixes for symptoms are the staple for Traditional Western Medicine (Allopathic) medicine.
Given the proper support and adequate care, the body can heal itself. Louise Hay states in her book, Heal Your Body, “…no matter how dire their predicament seems to be, I KNOW if they are WILLING to do the mental work of releasing and forgiving, almost anything can be healed. The word ‘incurable,’ which is so frightening to so many people, really only means that the particular condition cannot be cured by ‘outer’ methods and that we must GO WITHIN to effect the healing. The condition came from nothing and will go back to nothing.”
Mildred Carter, one of the pioneers of reflexology, stated in her book, ‘Body Reflexology,’ “Whenever we feel pain anywhere in the body, even the slightest twinge of a pain, it’s the body’s method of sending you a signal, and if palpated and rubbed out, may prevent future illness, although the actual dis-ease may be far removed from the original site of discomfort…”
Deepak Chopra, MD stated in his book, “The Book of Secrets’ that “The human body runs on dual controls. If you heal it from the outside by material means, it will respond. If you heal it from the inside by subjective means, it will also respond…” Arthur Miller stated, “I think one must finally take one’s life into one’s arms.”

In modern psychotherapy we treat symptoms because symptoms can be quantified and identified, or so it is claimed by traditional modern medical and psychiatric practices.
Thus, Emotional Pain is described in terms of symptoms-Depression, Anger, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Self-Esteem issues, Mood Swings, Compulsive Behavior, Chronic and Acute Fear, Self-Injury, Suicidal Thoughts, Shame, Guilt, Eating Disorders, or Addictions) does not heal itself. Time, marriages, children, success, wealth, buying a bigger house, or faster car, changing jobs or relocating will not CURE it. The damage is sometimes very deep, pervasive and profound. It is a soul injury. The person has been robbed of his or her integrity, core identity and trust.
Emotional, Physical or Sexual trauma in childhood is ‘violence’ that does not require force. The child is thrown into a ‘state of shock.’ For some the memories remain conscious, while others drive them beneath the conscious level. The coping mechanisms the child used are carried into adulthood and impact the person’s life on every level-Emotional, Physical, Mental, Behavioral, Spiritual, Sexual and Relationships. While these coping mechanisms were appropriate then, they are a ‘problem’ in adulthood.
Traditional mental health professionals ask: “What is wrong with you?” or “What happened to you?” Asking, “What is wrong with you?” or “What happened to you?” implies blame, sickness and fault. Asking, “What did you experience growing up?” -allows the person to begin the process of discovering the source of their pain and healing the wounds.
Traditional psychotherapy/psychoanalysis neglects the fact that we feel, sense, and experience global political mass consciousness, as well as our individual consciousness, like never before. A Mind, Body, Spirit approach addresses all three, therefore opening the door to true balance and healing.
Well-being comes from the understanding of the Self, the family, the local community in which we live, and the global community of which we are part. We are each one heart of the Whole; each heart here to express its unique piece of the Whole. Knowing Self creates a sense of “I as a piece of this Whole,” different and one at the same time. The process of understanding the Self, the family, the local community and the global community has its foundation rooted in metaphysics.
Metaphysics is the science, which investigates first causes of all existence and knowledge. It seeks to explain the nature of being, the origin and structure of the world, in relationship between the ethereal and the physical. Metaphysics holds that the soul or spirit and the physical body are one yet separate; here the applied psychology of religion comes to bear. The metaphysician’s teachings help soothe the emotional and physical problems of youth and maturity, illness and death. Herein, a transformational process occurs between the work of the Facilitator and that of the individual. Because the metaphysician or doctor of metaphysics can serve as both a facilitator as well as a source of spiritual comfort, he or she espouses universal spirituality through holistic health.
Metaphysical Healing a.k.a. Transpersonal/Spiritual Healing is the process of reconnecting with your inner being. Reconnecting can be achieved through meditation, introspection and over time accessing your inner self. However, few people have the discipline, inclination or know how to affect this process. Therefore, employing the help of a professional who practices Mind, Body Spirit, Transpersonal Healing will quickly establish the foundation for empowerment, self-esteem, self-confidence, peace of mind and on-going spiritual and emotional growth.
