Reverting back to old ways after a healing session
You might be tempted to go back to old ways after a healing session
The temptation might come up, or the urge, to revert back to old ways of being, and it’s important to understand that it’s just one of the effects of how the healing process sometimes can unfold.
The immediate result of a healing session can be an instant relief from whatever it is that we have worked on in our session but something that is important to mention as well is the effect healing has on your consciousness.
Yes, you may feel empowered, elevated, lighter, clearer and more peaceful and so on directly after a session but then the next day when you wake up you may find yourself feeling lethargic and maybe even a bit agitated.
If you do, don’t worry!
Healing is energy work so when it stirs up your consciousness so to speak, it can bring up old memories for example (as I mentioned in this article), and also old ways of being and behaving.
Old behavior and thinking patterns are stirred up in order to be released and it can be some old-age habits that comes up to the surface that you thought you were done with years ago.
It could be about old fears or unproductive and unhealthy behaviors from the past that resurface.
This is why self-awareness is important
When you have old stuff showing up that has to do with your old ways of being, know that it’s just patterns that has been re-stimulated (or stirred up) by the healing energies that are currently working on you.
The healing energy works very intensely on you not only during the healing session but also for at least 2-3 days after the session as well and can continue working on you for a long time afterwards.
So old stuff can come up, old levels of consciousness can try to pull you back again, and if they succeed then simply become aware that they did and refocus.
Here’s a few examples of what could happen:
- You suddenly find yourself with a beer in your hand even if you were done with alcohol ages ago.
- You suddenly find yourself texting with and old flame of yours that you broke up with years ago because they were abusive to you.
- Or you suddenly behave like a little insecure child around your mother again even if you have no unresolved issues with her anymore.
And so on, you get the point.
If those things happen, know that it’s just stirred up old levels of consciousness that are making themselves known.
Things can be stirred up from a deep, deep, place within your consciousness and it happens only so that it can be released once and for all.
So don’t fret!
If you for a moment revert to your old habits, fears, or ways of behaving, simply acknowledge this and pull yourself back up from there (from the lower level of consciousness).
It does not always necessarily mean that you still have things to work on or resolve, it simply means that consciousness has been stirred up and that old energy is being released from a deeper level than before.
What is happening is that there’s a shift that happens, that must happen, and that energetic shift (consciousness shift) releases remnants of old energy as it’s replaced with the new, fresh, free-flowing energy that you received from the session so it’s all part of the healing process.
The energetic shift creates a purge where you release the old.
So if you find yourself chatting with an old friend for example that was toxic and that you had ended your relationship with a long time ago, then simply acknowledge your mistake of reverting back and once again cut the ties to the toxic relationship.
Drop it like a hot potato!
Take action immediately to release the old level of consciousness from getting a hold on you again because it still has the power to pull you back if you don’t stop it (this is how a relapse can happen).
The old energetic pathways in your brain and mind can easily be reignited if you’re not aware of this and it has the potentiality of pulling you back to the old ways.
If an old addictive behavior comes up for example, become aware of it and once you’re aware, stop doing what you’re doing and get back to the higher place again.
Immediately stop doing the self-sabotaging things that you’re doing and get yourself back up again.
That’s all you have to do before the new energy from the healing session can again take hold and thus lift you higher than where you’ve been before (to a new level of consciousness).
It only takes a few seconds to do this so don’t worry about the power of the old because the healing energy is stronger than that.
These things can happen so it’s important to know that it’s all part of the release process where harmful blocks that have been holding you back on a deep level of consciousness are being cleared out and let go of.
You will feel a relief
When you refocus and get back to the healthier state of consciousness you will feel a huge relief and sometimes you can even laugh out loud because you see so clearly how you were pulled back to the old.
In other words, you’ll come to see/understand the mechanics of this phenomena and then the next time it happens, if it happens, you will be more aware and can more easily go through the energetic shifts.
And if guilt or shame comes up because you for one moment reverted to the old unhealthy ways, don’t get involved in any of that.
Let it go and give yourself a pat on the back instead for having had the necessary awareness to refocus back on what really matters (which is the new energy).
This awareness then of course only gives you even more insight and depth to your continuous spiritual and personal growth and healing journey.
So if you are experiencing these things after a healing session, relax, it’s part of the process (not for all, but it can happen to some) and once you let go of the old you will instantly be empowered by the new.
Onwards and upwards! 🙂
When you work with me in person I will be there to guide you through the changes and shifts that occur, and if you participate in a distant group healing session you’ll have the opportunity to discuss and share your healing experiences with me on a private Google plus community page that you have (lifetime) access to after your first session purchase.
The next upcoming distant group healing session is on December 14th when the full moon is.
It’s a super-moon and also the last full moon of the year so it’s going to be something extra special.
More information coming tomorrow, stay tuned.
