Is Your Body Happy?

Your symptoms will let you know.

Learn to use your symptoms as a portal to discover why your body is talking to you in the first place. Every symptom in your body or challenge in your life is like a mosaic: When standing close to it, the picture is blurry and has no meaning; however, as you move back, you’re able to appreciate how all the colors and pieces merge together to form a beautiful work of art. Every thought, feeling, and belief you have is a piece of your own personal artwork. Each color in the mosaic has meaning, as does every symptom or uncomfortable feeling through which your body speaks. The language it uses to communicate with you is an opportunity for you to heal and create abundance in all areas of your life.

Whether you have emotional or physical symptoms, they are your body’s way of saying, “I’m not happy with how you are treating me.

Author Louise L. Hay, who popularized the connection between mind/body and healing, wrote the following in an essay in The Handbook for the Heart: “Many people contact me for help with health issues, even very serious ones. All I do is teach them how to love themselves. They learn to look at what has gotten in the way of their love and health . . . I have people look into a mirror, just look into their own eyes, and say, ‘I love you.’”

Healing begins when you love yourself unconditionally. Symptoms are an expression of your denial of the need for self-love. The first step of healing is to completely embrace who you are right now. When you neglect self-love, it’s reflected in your relationship with others, your health, your work, and every other aspect of your life. The LifeLine healing process helps you see how, when, where, and why you’ve neglected your need for self-love. It allows you to appreciate the journey that you’ve already traveled on and prepares you for the road ahead.

I was in the middle of a treatment with a woman named Suzie. I noticed that she seemed distracted, and I asked her to get in touch with the conversation going on in her head. “Right now, I’m feeling bad that you’re running an hour behind and there are several people sitting in the waiting room,” she replied. I asked her to focus on her feelings about the people who were waiting to see me. As she did, Suzie began to recognize that she always put other people’s needs and concerns ahead of her own. She started to cry when she realized that she believed no one would love her unless she put them first.

To heal, you must accept where and who you are and love yourself unconditionally for being a perfect creation. Here are a couple of analogies:

You have to deposit money in a bank before you can withdraw it.

When flight attendants recite safety presentations before a plane takes off, what do they say about the oxygen mask? “Put on your own mask first before assisting others.”

Self-love isn’t self-indulgence, selfishness, or self-centeredness. Self-love requires that you own who you are at this moment, without judgment. True happiness is discovered during the healing process; it’s a by-product of the journey, not the end result.

Healing is about balance. By using the frequency of Infinite Love & Gratitude, The LifeLine Technique balances the body so that it will be able to accept and harmonize the emotions that you’ve subconsciously denied. Once harmony is restored, the body’s natural ability to heal itself is unleashed. Balance, and therefore healing, begins with self-love.

Begin the action steps of essential acts of self-love:

Your thoughts create your reality.

If your reality is other than what you'd choose then you can be sure that you’re living a life of reaction and as a result your subconscious mind is helping you to awaken your destiny to whole new you.

Go for it!

Remember when excitement and fear meet at a crossroads you know that you're on the precipice of a life transformation.

Self-love is the only answer.
