Emotional Healing For Beginners. It's never too late to start your healing journey; many people do not start to truly heal until they reach their late 50's/60's when their own children have grown and left home. This suddenly leaves them with some extra time on their hands and they start to consider a life change or start to think about things that they are not happy with in the lives, and so the healing process begins. I am a huge fan of self help techniques, they are really empowering and I encourage all of my clients to use the techniques that I show them for themselves at home. I was lucky enough to begin my healing journey in my late teens, but I did not have the knowledge about Energy Healing Techniques or Visualisations and Coaching Techniques that I use today, I simply started by taking control of my own mindset. Up until this point I was depressed, feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. I saw no positivity at all in the future, just more hurt and humiliation. But once I made the decision to change my thoughts and 'be happy', I was able to see that the future was not set in stone, it was up to me to create one. Many of the people that visit my blog or sign up to be clients are completely overwhelmed with their negative thoughts or emotions. They do not know where to begin with their healing process. If this sounds like you, just try these 5 steps. The first one is the most important. Step 1; Make the decision to change. If you really want to achieve something, you cannot do it without making a committed decision. Deciding is the first step to healing. You've probably heard people who say that they want to make changes in their lives, but then they get distracted and don't follow through on this ambition. The reason being is that they haven't truly decided to make the changes. We all have many thoughts that run through our minds each day, most of them we do not act on (if we did I would be living in a beach house in Spain, rather than in a town in England!). But we don't REALLY want to achieve all of these thoughts/goals.

I am happy living in England, but sometimes when the weather is wet and cold, I dream of Spain. It's a daydream at the moment, not a serious life goal. Maybe in a few years that will change. Learn to recognise and distinguish your true goals from your daydreams (ie the things that keep you positive in a negative situation). If you have a goal that you really would like to achieve, make the decision TODAY that you will achieve it. Step 2; Planning. Once you've established and committed to your true goals, you can start planning HOW to achieve them. In terms of healing, do you need to learn a technique that will help you (such as EFT or Reiki) or do you need to have some coaching sessions, or go to a weekend retreat. The choices are endless, but just do something. Don't procrastinate on this stage, think about what you would like to do and what you need to do, and come up with a definite plan of action. Step 3; Take Action. Once you have your plan, this is the trickiest and the stage that the majority will fail – you need to put your plan into practice. It's all very well deciding that you would like to get over your phobia or overcome your childhood bullying by learning a healing modality (or taking sessions with a practitioner), but you have to actually DO IT, for it to work. This is especially important if you have decided to self help. You will need to spend a lot of time mastering the technique and become good at it, for it to help you. Are you really that committed to this goal? I spent over 300 hours learning EFT once I decided I wanted it to help me and then I wanted to help others with it. EFT took over my life for almost a year, but I was totally committed to it. You don’t have to show that level of commitment for a method to work, but you do have to take action, even on a small level. If you do not have the commitment (or the free time), don't kid yourself that you will do this or you will still be living with your phobia/trauma/illness in a year's time! Be realistic and whatever plan you have decided on, take action and implement it. It gets easier once you start. Step 4; Track your progress.

Make sure that you track your progress so that you can establish how well you are doing, or make any changes to your plan if things are not working out as well as you hoped. For example, if you decided to use Reiki as a way of healing your past hurt about the death of a loved one, but it isn't working as well as you would have liked, try something else! There are so many different ways to heal, that you should never just stick to one modality for every issue that you want to heal. I quite often use different methods together, to get even better results. You could try Reiki with EFT, or Visualisations with Self Hypnosis, EFT with Visualisations, Reiki with Meditation, Meditation with Yoga, Journaling with EFT, the list is endless! But it's really important to track your progress in a journal so that you can see how far you have come, and tweak anything that isn't quite getting you the results that you desire. Step 5; Get support. This is relevant on a number of levels. Either getting support from a professional if you get stuck (for example, you've made as much progress as you feel is possible with EFT on your own, but you still can't shift your feelings of shame or guilt about a certain issue in your past, so you need an experienced practitioner to help you). It could also mean getting the support of a self-help buddy, someone who is also on a journey of healing. You could do this with a friend or even join a local group. Reiki healing circles are an example of this, but there are many other examples of local groups that you could join. Lastly, and this is really important, you need to shift the dead wood. Any friends, colleagues or family members that are not supporting you in your new healing journey need to go. It sounds very harsh, as quite often we love negative friends/family dearly, but if you value yourself and your journey, you need to spend less time with the people that have a negative effect on you and more time with people who make you feel positive, happy and valued. This includes your workplace/business. If you have negative colleagues or clients, think about how many hours that you spend at work during each week - it's a lot! Even if you only work part time, work is a huge part of our lives, so we need to consciously choose to spend more time with positive influences at work/business than with negative.
