Listening – To Yourself

Part of this blog is from a post I wrote several years ago. I wanted to share it again. I have been hearing a lot about listening to ourselves, especially during the times we are going through.

Listening, observing, witnessing, finding out how the person experiences what bothers them is what I do as a homeopath. I think I am a good listener, to others, but maybe not so good at listening to myself, hearing myself.

Are We Listening To Ourselves?

For me, sometimes, I am easily swayed or influenced by what other people say to me, or are doing. I need time afterwards to sift through, and process the information and energy of others. As a society, we are bombarded by all sorts of information, almost instantaneously and continually. From that we often think we need to be doing this or that, feeling this or that, comparing ourselves to others, and ultimately not being in tune with ourselves. We may not be listening to our own needs and wants, and who we are as an individual person.

Listening is not just with our ears. It is what we sense about ourselves and around us, and how we feel, inside. Our gut feeling.

Our bodies can tell us a lot of how we are reacting to a situation. Our thoughts tell us too. These reactions, responses and thoughts are often autonomic. We go to them immediately. Physically, we may get sick, which is a way of telling ourselves to slow down, to pause, to rest and to listen. Our head hurts. Our stomach grumbles and hurts. Our digestion may be off. A rash breaks out. We breath shallowly, maybe panting. Our heart beats faster. Our hands get sweaty. come down with a cold. We are not sleeping well. Emotionally, we may feel angry, fearful, shamed, irritated, annoyed, impatient, bored, unsettled or hurt. Mentally, we may have persistent thoughts that could be negative, almost looping around and around and around.

I sometimes think we may need to call ourselves on the phone, so we will actually listen to ourselves.

“Hey, Pam, I want to tell you this….”

Listening To Ourselves

  • What am I feeling?
  • This doesn’t feel right to do or feels right to do – about a relationship, a job, an opportunity, an event.
  • Don’t know what to do further in this creative work, will wait. Now I know what to do! Took the time to listen.
  • This person is doing this activity or has this belief. Is this something I want to do or believe in? Shall I go along with this person or not?
  • Following a dream, a passion, a trip that you have always wanted to take.
  • Should I? Shouldn’t I? (Shoulds are usually something to avoid.)
  • My body is not feeling right. What is my body telling me?
  • Time to rest, even if others are continuing.
  • Am I reacting?
  • The group is doing this, it doesn’t feel right to me.
  • Even if this person is an expert, I will get another expert’s opinion.
  • I am going to be quiet for awhile, so I can hear my voice, listening to what I am saying.
  • Am I speaking my voice with other people?
  • Am I speaking and hearing my own voice?
  • What does my voice sound like?

Listening To Me

I do artwork. I have done artwork off and on for most of my life. When I talk about the process of doing art work, I say that I listen to the piece that I am working on, almost as if the piece is telling me what to do next, what color to use, what line to draw and more. When I think (I am pointing to my head) of what to do, it doesn’t work. When I let the art work tell me, it works. It is a feeling or sense to do this ________. Is this the art telling, or me telling me? Whatever it is, it is listening to that.

A Video With Oprah Winfrey And Iyanla Vanzant

Below is a video of a conversation between Oprah Winfrey and Iyanla Vanzant from the program SuperSoul Sunday. They talked about pausing, staying present, and using your own spiritual GPS, instead of doing what we always do. The video is about 1:36 minutes long. Enjoy.

Homeopathy To Heal

When I work with a patient, I am witnessing what is bothering them. I often say, that the patient and I are witnessing them together. Witnessing is listening. I am listening to the patient. And the patient is listening to themselves.

I invite you to contact me if you or a loved one have a health issue that has not resolved. I work with people of all ages. I offer a complimentary 15+ Get Acquainted Call. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I work with people both in person and virtually in and out of the San Diego, California, area. I look forward to hearing from you.

Homeopathy – A Need For and How It Works

I write often that there is a need for homeopathy. I am seeing this need more and more from people, not only with the people who call me asking if homeopathy can help them, but also from just reading about how health care is in the world.

People call me about many different health issues. Very often, they have experienced this health issue for a period of time, received different treatments and possibly medications for it, yet they are not better. They may feel frustrated, stuck and unheard. Their health issue may not fit a box of a diagnosis or a name. The person is not feeling well, has symptoms that bother them greatly, which can affect their daily life.

Acute and Chronic Health Issues

Sometimes homeopathy works very quickly. Actually, you want to see a fairly fast respond when using homeopathy for first aid issues (falls, sprains, insect bites, traumas, dental work) and acute health issueshomeopathy bottles (flu, colds, stomachaches). You want to see symptoms move and change towards healing. Several doses of a remedy may be used. As the person heals and the symptoms change, another homeopathic remedy will be needed.

With a chronic, long term health issue, more time is needed for the healing. Often, a series of homeopathic remedies are used, taking one remedy at a time, and then when needed another one is used. Homeopathic remedies are usually not taken daily. One or two doses are taken within 24 hours, and then we wait and observe how the person is responding. The remedy is stimulating the person’s own healing ability. Sometimes we see something in the first few days, sometimes in a week, and sometimes longer. The changes may be subtle at first.

Follow Up Appointments

Follow up appointments help us to see how the person has responded to the remedy. From these appointments we know how to proceed, whether to continue with that remedy or to change to another. We don’t want to just keep giving the homeopathic remedy especially if nothing much has happened.

Sometimes the first homeopathic remedy does not do very much. By meeting again, we start to get a deeper understanding of the person, and use a homeopathic remedy that fits and helps more. The first remedy was not in vain; it helped us move to the next one. Healing is a process. We are healing at the root cause of the health issue, not just palliating.

One of my patients has done very well after the third homeopathic remedy we given. It is still used when needed. The first two remedies for this patient brought us to this third one.

Patients that use homeopathy as part of their health care get in contact with me when something comes up regarding their health, whether it is first aid, an acute issue, or a chronic issue that they are experiencing. For these patients, we may use the homeopathic remedy that has helped before or another one is needed. We address what is happening to them at this time.

Homeopathy To Heal

Since we want a healing, and healing is a process, we want to give the process time to work. Three months, six months, more time. It does depend on how long someone has experienced what is bothering them in terms of the healing time. Appointments are not weekly. The follow up appointments are 4 – 6 weeks apart, based on what is needed and the individual.

If I can be of help to you or loved one who has a health issue, I would be happy to talk with you. I offer a complimentary 15+ minute Get Acquainted Call to see if this is something you would like to pursue. I see patients both local and outside the San Diego area, virtually and in person.
