I’m learning energy healing the hard way, and it’s forcing me to become a better healer.
I want to demonstrate my healing techniques (among other goals). And it’s so tempting to do a healing session, see that the person sleeps better or hurts less or whatever other result, and call it a success. So, so tempting.
But that path invites placebo and luck. That isn’t the demonstration I’m looking for.
And facing my goals, really truly facing them, is forcing me to realize the space between where I am now and where I want to be. The space between “skilled” and “skilled enough to know I’ll create obvious results, if energy healing and magick are the only tools I’m allowed.” And facing that gap is the only way to close it.
It’s hard. At times I hate it, at times I resist learning. But I’m figuring things out and practicing techniques now that I never would have otherwise. I’m only doing them because the scientific method is forcing me to do it the hard way.
It makes me wonder: What other ways have I convinced myself I’m skilled? And if I got serious about testing, how much better would I become?If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
