Hi There! This is the script from my A1R Psychic Radio show: July 15 2014.
Hello! Welcome to Diary of a Psychic Healer. My name is Regina. For those of you who don't know me, I'm a qualified Healer and a published author. Last week we talked about Energy Healing, what it is, and how we can use it to heal different aspects of our lives: mental, emotional and physical. Today we’re going to talk about compassion and the role it plays in self-healing.
But first, let’s define compassion: seeing a person’s faults and not punishing or judging them for it. When we’re compassionate with others we give them the benefit of the doubt. We also recognize the fact that we’re all human, we make mistakes and we’re continually evolving and growing on this path of ours.
Quite a few religions speak of compassion: Christianity and Buddhism both do. The framework I have enjoyed the most is the one Kabbalah uses. If you’re not familiar with Kabbalah, it’s an esoteric understanding of both human nature and divinity. It was originally developed by Christian monks in the middle ages, and has since been adopted by the more mystical side of Judaism. I’m not an expert on Kabbalah or a practicing Kabbalist, though geek that I am, I took a few classes.
- One of the topics we studied was the Tree of Life (or the 10 spheres of light). I won’t go into it in too much detail now, only to say that the 10 spheres of light are each said to represent aspects of the Divine, including Wisdom, Glory, Mercy, Judgment and Manifestation, to name a few.
- You’ll have to Google the Tree of Life to see an image, but the ten spheres are placed on three pillars of light, with the harsher elements on the left, the more caring elements on the right. For example, we have Judgment on the left, balanced out by Mercy and Compassion on the right hand column.
- We need to be Objective, Rational and Discerning, in so far as Judgments are concerned. If however, we lean on Judgment without bringing Compassion and Mercy into the equation, we risk going too far. Both in our personal lives, and on the global scale. So many of the conflicts we see nowadays are due to people leaning heavily on harsh judgments and forgetting to show mercy in their actions. We really need both of these.
And Back to Energy Healing ...
Professional healers are taught to be compassionate, objective and non-judgmental. This is the only way to create a space where clients can feel safe opening up about the character traits that they might be self-conscious about. Or even feelings that they might be ashamed of, like jealousy and envy.
We all have a shadow side: that side of us that we don’t broadcast to the world (and sometimes, we won’t even acknowledge it ourselves). Our shadow side makes us act out of fear, anger, worry or jealousy. And its 100% human. Self-healing involves accepting these ugly bits with the more appealing ones that we show the world. The more we work on our self-confidence and self-love, the easier it is to heal and release the shadow. Even though it will most likely, never be gone. And that’s OK too. It’s all part of the process. With time we’ll start to appreciate the beauty in our imperfections.
So be kind, be compassionate. Start with yourself and let it spill over to your relationships and the people you meet. It will bring lots of love into the world! And tune in next Tuesday at 10 pm EST on www.ask1radio.com. Thank you!
