Are You Taking a Dixie Cup to the Ocean? How Healing Touch Can Help Overcome Limiting Beliefs

I’m curious whether you have ever self-sabotaged yourself with limiting beliefs. It’s a common theme in many of my Healing Touch sessions and it’s always humbling to be a witness as my clients reclaim their power.

A common scenario goes like this: You find yourself experiencing something so wonderful that your heart expands with joy and gratitude. In that moment whatever doubts and fears typically hold you back seem to fade into the background. This open-heartedness brings you a sense of inspiration, hope, and even a whole new perspective on your life.

For many of us, it isn’t long before nagging thoughts of undeservedness or fear of unworthiness sneak back in.

It’s as if you’re taking a Dixie cup to the ocean: the supply of goodness is infinite, but your mental, emotional, and spiritual containers are too small to receive it all.

These limiting beliefs can become a huge obstacle in our lives.

My client Rauel described it to me this way: “Overall things are good. Healing Touch is helping, but underneath I’m still asking: ‘Why me? Who am I to be the recipient of good stuff? Why do I deserve it?'” After a pause he admitted he didn’t have an answer.

“I want know that I’m good enough to receive good things occasionally.”

“Occasionally?” I asked with a smile. “How about always?”

We laughed because we could both relate to this habit of limiting ourselves.

This is the beauty of Healing Touch: once you experience yourself as an energetic container, you can begin to see a relationship between your limiting beliefs and your ability to receive. Healing Touch expands all four levels of your being: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. It helps us release the stuck energy of limitation and receive infinite healing and blessings.

In my session with Rauel, I noticed that the energy over his solar plexus seemed to be “gurgling.” The solar plexus holds our feelings of self-worth. I connected Rauel’s solar plexus to his heart with the intention that he would release any lies he held about his worthiness and true essence. As I visualized Rauel in his perfection, these words came up: Why would it be otherwise? It was as if Spirit was telling me that there is no other way to see one another and ourselves but in our perfection.

Afterwards, when I shared this message, Rauel said he had seen an image of a wall separating a dry desiccated place where he was standing from a beautiful, lush landscape. The voices from long ago telling him, “You’re worthless,” prevented him from stepping into that beautiful place that he knew he deserved.

Together we reframed the question to become not “Why would it be otherwise?” but How could it be otherwise?”

How could Rauel embrace the truth of who and what he is, to accept himself, and fully embrace his worthiness to receive all the infinite blessings that are already a part of his life?

Rauel renewed his intention to expand his container and open his heart to receive the waves of goodness in his life. I invite you to open your heart to release any limiting beliefs and receive all your blessings all the time.
