Almost a year ago, I led an experimental seminar – the first of its kind – to a group of willing participants in an effort to design a seminar, and coaching material, that would speak to a new idea of being productive in life. My intention was that the seminar would provide some insight into how I could reach people – people that were entrenched in the current paradigm of needing to be motivated to take action, the action begets action mentality, and “you’ve got to do to get” – with a new paradigm of being productive that involves only: ease and the magic of life. To accomplish this feat without having them whittle the seminar down to hogwash or mere magical thinking was the big trick I was committed to pulling off.

Let me explain a bit more. Through my study of human beings and of myself, I had begun to be disparaged by all the techniques and “tools” out there guided by our unique fascination as Americans at being ultra-productive. All of the folks out there who consider themselves providing formulas for success, or providing you with their experience so you can get “there” where they are faster, easier and with even greater success, or providing any other motivational technologies are out there doing what they think will make a huge difference in the lives of others. I say kudos to them for they are fulfilling the purpose they have set before themselves. I just think there’s a lot more ease that can be had to much greater result, more rewarding and much better for the health and well-being of those involved. Not only do I think this, I know it. And I, much like them, want to say it out loud so that anyone wanting to hear can. What I say is not for everyone, but the ones who are interested, they will come and get what they seek.

So I set out to do this seminar, not really knowing what would come about, but knowing it was the right time to do it. And it was a success. I learned. The willing participants learned, and a found sense of being productive was had by those for whom that was their main aim for their participation. What happened, you ask? I led a journey of exploration through our hearts in an effort to heal them.

That’s a path to productivity?

Yes, it is. Here’s how…

When we get sick, a cold, the flu, something more substantial, maybe even life-threatening, we begin a search to find the source. We begin a search to find the source of our illness, our disease. We employ health professionals, of whatever kind we’re interested in, and we use whatever resources we have at our ready to do what’s necessary to get better. Those resources could include anything from pharmaceutical medications to homeopathic remedies to exercise to acupuncture to yoga to massage therapy to rehabilitative therapy to so many other health services and/or remedies.

But what about that less tangible part of ourselves? What about the heart that abides in us all? Not the one that uniformly pumps blood through your veins and receives blood by way of your arteries. Not the one that provides nourishment to your body via your red blood cells and heals your body via your white blood cells. Not the physical “pump” that is located in your chest cavity, underneath your rib cage, beating at a rate that is hopefully within the bounds of what is healthy for your age, your weight, and your build.

No, the ‘heart’ of which I speak is the one that has fielded both the love and the pain, the ecstasy and the wounds, the good times and the ba… less than good times, the gains and the loss, the highs and the lows, the glory and the devastation. This heart is the one that you feel with but has no physical location within your body. This fact, however, does not deter it from creating very physical sensations throughout your body, and even registering you to use your mind and your brain to take particular actions that will subvert the pain, or extend the joy.

This heart is the one that we move by (moved by our passion or simply a good feeling), tell time by (memories we both hold close and at a distance); and use as a guide to erect monuments to others, or tear down pedestals we no longer feel are worthy of existence.

And when we have hurt, the first thing we do is not always to assess what’s happened with a health professional and then see how we can begin the healing process. In fact, often, our next steps after receiving heartbreak of some sort is just to MOVE THROUGH the best we can.

If we had a cold, we couldn’t move through. I mean we definitely try, but often if we have a cold and we don’t do anything to remedy it, we find ourselves with a worse cold than the one we began with, with words like, “Oh, it’s nothing. I’ll get over it in a day or two.” Ever tried that one? I know I have, and to no avail.

If we have the flu, we couldn’t move through. If we had something more substantial, we couldn’t just move through. Not without a remedy of some sort to help us return ourselves to normal, or healthy.

So if we do this for colds and flus and all else… Why then do we not do some version of this to heal our heart?

Why then do we just think we’ll “get through it somehow,” get rid of the pain by “not thinking about it,” or “hope that it goes away?” Why do we not take more healing measures? Why do we act differently when healing is required for our intangible ‘heart’?

And analysis, like psychoanalysis, or your own mental analysis, is not in the realm of healing. It is often a necessary process but all in all, it does not produce the same effects as actual healing modalities.

Healing our hearts can be the answer to healing traumas that we’ve held in our minds for moments, or a lifetime. And we all have trauma. Trauma is any incident in which we felt not able to cope and overwhelmed by our circumstances. Healing our hearts can be the answer to healing traumas that we’ve held as individuals, or as groups. Healing our hearts can be the answer to healing traumas of old, or of today.

Healing is a wonderful way to acknowledge that you have lived a glorious life and though it has not always looked to you as “glorious”, that that can always be a new, and welcome perspective in a sobering moment. Healing can bring you joy where you never thought you’d have more than thoughts of revenge. Healing is universal, and it is your birthright.

And once you have healed, you no longer have to compensate for what was unhealed. Imagine for a moment that you want to do some work on the roof of your house. If you’re not handy, don’t worry. This is an exercise in imagination. You can do it. You are limitless in your imagination. (Wink.) Imagine that in getting ready for that work you have to do on the roof, you take out the tools you’ll need to accomplish your task – one of which is very necessary is the ladder to get you to the roof.

Well, there’s one thing that I haven’t yet mentioned. You have two logs attached to your hands Both are skinny logs, but one has twigs that protrude from it, and both are protruding from your hands, making it very difficult to hold tools and to climb a ladder. But this is what you have to work with. I won’t mention that you have a very heavy tire around your mid-section that’s been there for so long you’ve learned to cope with it. It’s made of a thin rubber but it’s filled with your body weight in sand, so it’s been a bitch to accommodate. But you’ve done it, so I wasn’t going to mention it because you’ve accommodated walking and moving with it so well, you barely recognize it’s there anymore. The logs, however, are fairly new. You haven’t quite learned how to work with them. But you are a productive-minded individual so you will soldier through.

Now imagine how it would be to have to accommodate more of these kinds of things. These protrusions and inhibiting additions represent the unhealed wounds within you. They represent what you have to compensate for to be productive in your life. It’s a lot, yes? And those aren’t the only 3 things. You’ve got more. So imagine now, what life would be like if you didn’t have to “accommodate,” or compensate for all the protrusions, heavy weights and all else you carry around? What if they were gone? You’d be far more productive wouldn’t you?

Easy peasy.

Yes, that’s the ease and magic of life of which I spoke earlier. Get it? I hope so.

I learned some things during that seminar about how to present this new paradigm and have folks begin to see where they’ve only scratched the surface. And I’m still learning with this website, The Revolution Of Bliss.com. Healing our hearts is one of the major factors of being more blissful day in/day out that I can see will make a monumental difference for each and every human being on this planet. I believe that it can happen. Who knows where it will all lead and what the world will look like, but that’s my game. I’ll let you know how it’s all progressing each step of the way.

Look, find your healing where you need it most. Allow the Universe to offer you answers, and as you take them, know that the healing is an opportunity for your greatest growth and splendor. Healing brings wholeness.

Be well. Be healthy. Be whole.

  1. I’m pasting my last reply to the comment above so that it can be read by others.

    “Though I fully appreciate your desire to share what you have found to be successful in your life, and are eager for others to share in your enthusiasm for what has given you life, I don’t agree with the principle of consulting self-healing before receiving medical attention. You may not have given the full picture here of what your complete healing process is, as you may have consulted with professionals first, but I’m going on the words you have used here in your comment only.

    I do not subscribe to healing oneself over seeing a doctor or specialist. I believe that it is important to have access to Western medicine as well as whatever self-remedies we want to design for ourselves. (When I speak, I am speaking to everyone reading these comments.) It’s important that I clarify my stand, because I lost a new friend a few years ago to the failure of her self-prescribed “healing process .” She was on a path of self-healing not only because she wanted to go a natural route but because she had no access to insurance due to her financial situation (a fact that she was not upfront about because it embarrassed her). One day she was rushed to the hospital where she died within 36 hours of being admitted, as her body was consumed by cancer.

    I don’t have a problem with wanting to heal oneself, but she is not the only person I know who opted for their own insistence that they could heal themselves rather than seek a doctor’s guidance for the sake of their health. I don’t want to be irresponsible on my site that is here to help others to allow some inference that I condone not seeking professional counsel and treatment for any medical ailment, be it physical, mental or emotional, because this comment is here.

    Again, I respect your choice, but I am not a proponent of self-healing alone to cure medical conditions.” — my reply to Markssong5 comment above

  2. I listen to the beating heart and meditate to its beat by tuning in and creating a trance like state that becomes a deep meditational state . It takes practice , but when it becomes easy you can then focus on different parts of the body to repair parts in need like sprains , cuts , bruises and even after surgery to ease pain

      • It works like a charm , practice , yes but if you meditate it will be a very easy progression and seriously it’s like miraculous. When I first discovered it it was by accident and a WOW moment . I told lots of people who blew me off , but I didn’t take it to heart ( no pun ) and thought they were just out of my or under my intelligence. P,ease don’t get me wrong , I didn’t think I was better then those who ridiculed, but knew I was onto something real big and when I found those who meditate and gave the advice I found they knew of this . Some were at the point where they could heal and others were still in practice . Self belief is huge in this practice , but we can heal ourselves from within . I will tell you the truth how I accidentally made the discovery, I way back when used to take LSD and meditate , my heart was racing and I needed to slow it down do I tuned into the beats and did just that . A day before I twisted my ankle real bad , so after slowing my heart rate I tuned into gone pain and focused by visualising the sprain from within , like looking at an open ankle with all its muscle and sinew , voila the pain reduced and the sprain healed within three days . Self belief and visualisation whilst focusing on the pain within deep meditation. Gosh , I hope I explained it well for readers to understand.
