What prevents us from accessing our true potential? Eco-physicists estimate that we are using much less than our full potential. Clearly, we have a great playing field available — there are dormant abilities and reserve energies just waiting to be tapped!
As health practitioners, it is vitally important to take our awareness into more expansive and exciting areas beyond techniques and conditioned and limited belief systems in order to provide quicker and greater results with our clients.
Transformational changes available in a client are directly related to the philosophy, personal experience and tools of the practitioner.
I firmly believe that all human beings have access to extraordinary energies and powers. Judging from accounts of mystical experience, heightened creativity, or exceptional performance by athletes and artists, we harbor a greater life than we know. There we go beyond those limited and limiting patterns of body, emotions, volition, and understanding that have been keeping us in dry-dock. Instead we become available to our capacity for a larger life in body, mind, and spirit.
There is always much more potential whether we are parents, scientists, healthcare practitioners, scholars, athletes, politicians, etc. A small paradigm shift has the ripple effect of producing many positive and far reaching results.
So, what are the interferences that prevent us from accessing our true potential?
For the sake of simplicity, let’s say that on a physical level interferences to the system manifest as blockages, hardness, tightness and shortening of tissues, distortion from balanced alignment, nerve impingements, limited range of motion, limited flexibility, etc. On an emotional level, interferences can be dysfunctional emotions such as anger, grief, rage, poor attitudes (fixated emotional states). On a psychological level interferences are expressed as limited belief systems, filtered and biased realities, personal victim states, etc.
Can you create autointoxication with unsupportive emotions? Does a psychological trauma deeply affect emotional and physical responses? In my experience, absolutely! Physical traumas affect our emotional and psychological states. And emotional traumas affect us psychologically as well as physically. These states of dysfunction also alter our internal biochemistry and hormonal flow.
These patterns of dysfunction on all levels are “static” states which, under stimuli, loop back into a repetitive pattern somewhat like a telephone answering machine tape that repeats the recorded message over and over. Now, if you were actually speaking with someone on the phone that conversation would be flowing, in energy terms, “dynamic”.
In order to facilitate a client’s challenges, we need to easily, naturally and non-invasively read the “static” expressions in order to abet the process of moving it into a functioning dynamic.
So, what does all of this awareness mean to a therapist? To begin with, you are not practicing techniques, you are working with the unique and specific challenges presented. New and different ideas become the expansive thinking and belief systems of the therapist. The gestalt of greater knowledge, skill and experience aid in facilitating the challenges of a client allowing each session to build on transformation as therapist and client partner to access potential.
