Talk is Cheap

As a culture we give all the appearances of a race of people addicted to the negative and talking about the negative. Notice how easy it is to get into a conversation with someone about a topic that is dark, or about a third person.

The same can be said about the Healing Process. We can become so addicted to talking about our “story” or “issues”, that they become our identity and rob us of the ability to heal because we are stuck sitting and spinning, around and around about the same topic related to an event in the past where we were harmed in some way. Our emotions are engaged, our egos are entangled in the emotions, making it seem impossible to stop because everything feels relevant and necessary and important.

I want to be clear, I have done it too. If you look in the “About” section of my website, you’ll see how much Work I’ve done, some of which did involve some sitting and spinning, so please don’t think I’m excluding myself from this conversation at all- I’m not.

Therapy-the kind where we sit and talk to someone about the thing or things that happened- can be very constructive if it leads you to a greater sense of empathy and understanding of yourself and the people involved in whatever your specific wounding is or was.

However, if what you want is true healing of the anxiety you’re facing, what you need is energy and brain work- not talk. You need to be able to safely release the negative emotions you’ve been carrying, and also change your brain patterns so you can move on with your life. The best way to do this is through meditation and energy work. Meditation changes your brain patterns by creating new neuro-pathways. You end up using more of your brain and it actually makes you smarter. Energy work such a Jikiden Reiki, heals emotional energy trapped in the body.

Talk is cheap because it robs you of forward movement. When I work with my clients, we don’t talk, we work. We dig in and we move energy. Healing is work worth engaging in.

Temple Grandin

Neuro-of the brain, Diversity-the state or fact of being diverse;difference, unlikeness

Temple Grandin, if you don’t know already is a full-blown Autistic who has been a trailblazer in so many ways: women’s rights, Autism Advocacy, Humane treatment of animals.

If you have not had a chance to see her life story on HBO, it is a real mind-blower! the visual description of how her mind works is such a gift! I am visual and auditory and also an adult living successfully with ADHD, Depression and probably a touch of Aspergers.

Temple has done so much good, truly by her willingness to simply not settle for being less that all that she is! She has helped millions of people understand what Autism is and how it has nothing whatever to do with intelligence or a lack thereof. She suffered much in the 60’s and 70’s as a woman who was not taken seriously, because of Autism, and also because she is a woman. She did not give up and was successful in creating transformative changes to the treatment of cattle and livestock in processing plants-making their final journey so much more humane than ever before.

I, for one, am so grateful for Temple’s work and am very excited that she will be a guest on Neurodiversity Radio when we can schedule the time!

 

Light and Love to you!
