Listening To Yourself

Listening, observing, 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 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 are not listening to our own needs and wants, and who we are as an individual person.

Listening is not just with our ears. It is how we feel, inside. Our gut feeling. Our bodies can tell us a lot: our physical reactions and our emotional responses. These reactions and responses are often autonomic; we go there immediately. Physically, we may get sick (really telling ourselves slow down and listen): our head hurts, our stomach grumbles, a rash breaks out, we breath shallowly, we come down with a cold. Emotionally, we may feel angry, fearful, shameful, irritated, annoyed, impatient, bored, or hurt.

I sometimes think we may need to call ourselves on the phone, so we will actually listen to ourselves. “Hey, Pam, I wanted to tell you this….”

Listening To Ourselves

Listening:

  • this doesn’t feel right to do, or feels right to do – a relationship, a job, an opportunity, an event. This does feel right.
  • don’t know what to do further in this creative work, will wait. Now I know what to do!
  • this person is doing this activity or has this belief, should I do this or believe this too? Shall I go along with this person or not?
  • following a dream, a passion, a trip that you have always wanted to do.
  • should I? Shouldn’t I? (Shoulds are usually something to avoid.)
  • my body is not feeling right.
  • time to rest, even if others are continuing.
  • am I reacting?
  • what am I feeling?
  • 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?
  • what is my voice saying?

To listen we need to be quiet, taking the time to be with ourselves. Going to a nurturing physical space, and a nurturing space within us. Honoring and respecting what we hear and what we feel. Being with it.

Listening is a muscle that we develop the more we use it. It is a practice. It is healing to listen to ourselves, and to be listened to by others, professionals and/or friends.

Are you listening to yourself?

I invite you to do so. And if I can be of any help regarding listening, and/or with homeopathy, I invite you to contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

It Starts Within Us – A Healing With Homeopathy

It starts within us.

We react to something that happens in our life. The response can be emotional, physical, and/or mental. It can be experienced or shown by a feeling, a sensation in the body, a particular symptom, a thought, a behavior. It is like an automatic response. It just happens.

An Automatic Response

These are some automatic responses I have heard expressed in my practice:

  • Angry, extreme angry, when someone drives in front of the person and cuts them off. The person curses at the other driver, and may even get out of his car and confront the other driver, in a very angry way.
  • Concerned about doing one’s best at work, to the point that they don’t even start working. They procrastinate. Being fearful of not doing the work well, and/or of failing.
  • Being isolated from the outside world. Wanting very much to be part of life, to be involved with the community, to be in a relationship, to do work that is meaningful. Feeling that they need to protect themselves.
  • Being very nervous and worried about one’s family members, to the point of not allowing their older children to be at home alone.
  • Having a very upset stomach, and needing to know where the public bathrooms are located, just in case.
  • Wanting to run away, and hide.
  • Fevers and not feeling well, that result in a possible ear infection, in which course after course of antibiotics are given.
  • Wanting to take revenge on someone else when they have been insulted, hurt, or being told what to do.

Each of us has our responses, our automatic responses, that we go to when something happens in our life. What is your automatic response?

Healing Is Within

Just as our automatic response is within us, the healing comes from within us too.

Recently a woman who has been having homeopathic care, was sick with a lingering, deep chest cough that developed into tree reflectionpneumonia. In the past, when she was sick, she would still get up, get out of bed, and go to work. If she had an event she was hosting and responsible for, she would go and attend to what she needed to do. During this recent time when she was sick, she did not go to her job, nor did she go to the events that were scheduled. She was able to say I cannot go, I am sick. Here is the information and the materials you will need for the event. Everything is all prepared and ready. She was able to let go, and allow herself to rest and to heal.

You may ask, how can she be better if she is sick?

The letting go is very healthy for her. Yes, she is sick, on a physical level, but she is feeling better within herself. She is able to let go of the responsibilities and the feelings of obligation in her life, and allow herself to rest and get better. This is health for her.

Health

These are examples of what others have experienced as they are healing and are in a more healthful state.

  • Feeling less angry. Responding less with angry comments when something happens in their life.
  • Able to do the work at their job, with less feelings of fear and anxiousness of the possibility of it not being correct or that they will fail.
  • Sharing themselves with other people and being more out in the world.
  • Less worried and nervous about the safety of her children.
  • Calmer stomach, no longer in dire need of the public bathrooms.
  • Able to stay in the situation, and not have the feeling of running away and hiding.
  • Less fevers, and no longer having the need for antibiotics.
  • The response to get back at someone is no longer present.

Homeopathy helps with this healing, with creating this awareness, with quieting the automatic response. The healing is happening within. This is health.
