Stop Thinking and Heal?

What should you think about during a healing session?

One should not think; he should experience. Strange as it may seem thinking is at best a distraction from the healing process. Often we interrupt our experience by thinking.  When we do, we mare the experience with our preconceptions and expectations.

over thinking

In the way I am using the term we sometimes spontaneously ‘experience’ things. It can happen in many ways, but consider this example. You may have been on the beach as the sun is setting. Of that experience you may have said, “The sunset was so beautiful that time stood still.”

That ‘time stood still’ event was not involved in analyzing the happening. It was not naming things in the event. It was not in the application of words. It is moving into a place of total innocence.

The Bible says except you become as a little child you shall not enter …

innocence

It is with child like innocence that you observed the sunset. On the adult level you are not thinking about it, rather with eyes of your inner child you are observing. You are absorbing it without word.  You are in a world before words.  Just being experiencing being.

When we return to a world before words, we have entered this tranquility where healing flourishes.

To get to this innocence, I use three d’s. Denote, disown, and dismiss.

A word is an adult creation. When a word arises in your quest for child-like innocence, denote it, say hello to it. “Oh hello.”

Then once denoted, about the word ask, “Who does that belong to?” You have disowned that word, denied ownership.

Finally, to the word say, good-bye, bye-bye, so long, or dismissed. “Bye.”

Exercise. – Look at a flower. Just observe it.  Do not think flower.  Just observe it.

rose

The word rose may ease into your mind. “Oh hello … Who does that belong to? … Bye.” You likely feel a slight shift in your head at this point. You are moving into child-like innocence. Just observe.

The word red may come into your thinking. “Oh hello … Who does that belong to? … Bye.” You likely feel a shift in your mind at this point. You are moving into child-like innocence. Just observe.

The word petal may come up. “Oh hello … Who does that belong to? … Bye.” You likely feel a shift in your brain at this point. You are moving into child-like innocence. Just observe. … Etc.

The longer you do the exercise the deeper you can get into innocence. This is the non-thinking innocence that you should go for during a hesaling session. Do not think. Just observe.

In autogenics this is called passive concentration. [Please see now the page on hypnosis and autogenics, because as you can imagine there is more info there.]

In chi gong meditation Kenneth Cohen

cohen

calls this entering into tranquility. “Entering into tranquility means training the mind to be silently aware without any particular point of focus. … The mind is not thinking about but rather experiencing directly, immediately, without the mediation of thoughts and concepts.”

Dare I say the devil is in the details.

May be in session you feel your stomach growling [common in session]. When you think my “stomach” is … , “Oh hello … Who does that belong to? … Bye.” You likely feel a shift in your head at this point. You are moving into child-like innocence. Just observe.

May be you sense an “angel” above you. When you think there is an angel … “Oh hello … Who does that belong to? … Bye.” You likely feel a shift in your brain at this point. You are moving into child-like innocence. Just observe.

You may think you are having a “vision”. When you think I am having a vision [concept word] … “Oh hello … Who does that belong to? … Bye.” You likely feel a shift in your mind at this point. You are moving into child-like innocence. Just observe it.

I remember once, as I was having a session, I was just observing. Suddenly I thought “I am smelling green”. “Oh hello … Who does that belong to? … Bye.” I returned to just observing, experiencing, silence, tranquility.

When we return to a world before words, before thinking, we have entered this tranquility where healing flourishes.

Thank you.

His studies in comparative religions led him into an in depth study of metaphysics.

He has a knack for noticing overlapping principles in different systems. It occurred to him that when things keep showing up in many religions that these maybe the secret truth past down from our ancient past that are applicable to us today.

As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way. He is willing as needed to take the time to see the secrets that are ready to be opened from different directional considerations.

Dr. Bill was a traditional minister for 25 years, filling pulpits two times a week and teaching many classes.
