Healing does not always have to be about a physical condition. It can be emotional, spiritual, and mental issues that need a resolution. Maybe there is something in your life that does not feel right; you feel like you’ve drifted off course. There are those regardless of their social economic background or age, feel trapped in their story. They’re living a life that belongs to someone else. They’re desperate to manifest the freedom, courage and help they need to move beyond the story that traps them.
Then there are those who want better relationships, but can’t move past the forgiveness step whether it’s another person or themselves to forgive. Bottom line, we are looking for ways, various modalities, and different techniques that can release all the things that are holding us back. Here are two books that have successfully helped some change their story.
Ho’oponopono and Family Constellations
Ho’oponopono is one of my favorite modalities. It means to make right. It’s about using the mantra, I love you, I’m sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you! The sequence of this mantra does not matter. It’s one of the kahuna sciences, ancient shamanistic teachings that emerged in Hawaii and was originally taught by Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona. She updated this modality so we, whether as an individual, or as a family or as a group, can use the self-awareness, self-healing, self-transforming and problem-solving techniques in our home. This book shares how to use Ho’oponopono in different situations like clearing old patterns that are no longer serving you. The process of Ho’oponopono is to align with and clean up our genealogy as well as to clean up our relationships with the people in our lives.
Ulrich Emil Duprée reveals the Hawaiian reconciliation ritual to forgive both ourselves and others. This is given even greater power when combined with the method of systemic family constellations. A constellation allows underlying conflicts to be aired and resolved. It helps us to experience love and inner peace through the feeling, deep in our hearts, that we are all interconnected.
Change The Story Of Your Health
So, what’s your story? Are you living a life that gives you unlimited joy, peace and bliss? Or is your life a result of influences and pressure from peers, family, and cultural conditioning. The story of our health is more in our control than we might think, according to clinical psychologist, Jungian analyst, and shamanic practitioner Carl Greer, PhD, PsyD. We can not only reframe our experiences but actually experience less stress, greater well-being, and even better physical health than it might appear if we are willing to identify our health story and begin rewriting it. Through journaling exercises and expanded awareness practices, many of which involve working with and in nature, and which are influenced by Jungian and shamanic traditions, anyone can tap into hidden resources for healing and work with them effectively.
Whether gaining insights and balancing energies outdoors, dialoguing and interacting with the earth or a river or lake, or working with dreams, an inner healer, or a symbol encountered on a shamanic journey, readers will find they are able to learn why they have struggled to change their habits and will be empowered to experience greater wellness within a satisfying health story.
“Change the Story of Your Health” focuses on four key chapters of a person’s health story: • Eating and drinking, and weight • Movement/exercise, flexibility, balance, stamina, and strength • Sexuality, body image and acceptance, and changes due to midlife hormonal shifts (commonly known as menopause and andropause) • Management of an acute ailment or symptoms of a chronic condition It also helps readers revise their health stories as their health changes as a result of aging or unexpected challenges. Gaining insights into their health, letting go of what is standing in the way of optimal health and well-being, and bringing in what is needed to make a preferred new health story a reality—all are possible when readers take on the challenge of “Change the Story of Your Health” and begin using the practices regularly.
