Today, I cover a common yet potent barrier in our healing efforts: self-doubt or self-sabotage. 

Even now, after all these years of success, when I sit quietly pondering the concept of healing others, a huge wave of doubt might crash over me.  Am I doing something even real?  Am I really capable of transforming someone by reaching my energetic hands into the quantum field and making a few adjustments?  Seems impossible sometimes.

Remember, my world view is colored by the fact that I spent over 4 decades as a physicist, in the lab as a researcher and in front of students as a professor.  

I clearly remember my first significant healing.  

It wasn’t like one of those that, if I failed, the person would continue to have a headache or need to take blood pressure medication. Certainly not fatal. This particular case was a matter of life and death.  The doctors had given up on him, saying he wouldn’t live out the week with the traumatic brain injury he had just suffered.  

My mom asked me to help this man in his fifties, the son of one of her closest friends.  I started getting nervous right as soon as she asked.  Imagine the enormity of having someone’s life in your hands.  I asked myself, who do I think I am to take this on?  

This was a time in my life when the whispers of doubt nearly drowned out my confidence. As I looked at this comatose man I had known since he was a child, immobilized in his bed so his broken bones could heal: I was overwhelmed. He was also hooked up to monitors with dials and lights, some of which were ringing in alarm.  

But then, I took a deep breath and focused in on him. Then I heard a different voice in my head that felt outside myself.  It answered the question of who I thought I was to be able to do this healing?. I clearly heard:  If not you, then who?  

Then, I realized I had just gotten in my own way.  I realized that my fears were just illusions.  Stay with me as I deconstruct why they came up for me and, often, for many other healers.

Have you had those self-doubting thoughts? It’s quite common.  

First, let’s consider what they do to you and your healing skills, then where they come from. And, last, what you can do to overcome them.

Self-doubt is not only low energy; it’s self-fulfilling.  It’s a curse that you put upon yourself.   But he self-doubt is a lie.  It’s just like saying, “I can’t afford that,” or “my back is killing me.”  These are all untruths that lower your energy.  As your frequency or energy drops, your ability to move energy diminishes, meaning that your healing is less effective.  

I’ve discovered in working with so many healers, they are especially prone to self-doubt and impostor syndrome.  Why?  Not that many years ago, anyone who showed a remarkable intuition or healing skill ws declared as a witch, then tortured or burned to death, often publicly.  Historically, it sent healers into hiding.

Far religious right people even today declare what we do as insidious, telling us that parts of our healing process are forbidden in the Bible.  It might make you want to run and hide.  Being empathic makes it that much more difficult because of the blast of negative emotions coming your way. 

That’s the why.  

Here are the strategies to overcome self-doubt. 

Here are strategies that have helped me and other healers overcome this doubt and shift the narrative going on in your head.  Many of these will be reminders for you.

First off, keep practicing your energy hygiene.  It shores up your energy field to protect you from the negative opinions and emotions of others.  It acts as a shield or mirror to bounce off that energy.  Choosing the right color for the edge of your field can filter out the low frequency energy as shown by scientific experiments. 

Next, get into the habit of doing something for yourself every morning, no matter what. Remember, It takes more energy to remember to do something than it does to actually do It.  Getting into the habit of doing self care and hygiene saves you the energy of remembering.  

Second, take care of yourself first so you are able to help more people, if you so desire.  Don’t succumb to the never ending demands you might receive from people you know and expect it for free.  You will grow to resent them and neglect your self-care, which is essential to keep you in that place of joy and wanting to make a difference.

Third, practice energy healing every day, either on you, your animals, or someone else.  The best way to grow your confidence is success, even small ones. One way I’ve practice is to approach people that complained of something within earshot, wherever I was.  I asked if I could help them with that and told them I was a healing student that needed practice.  This way, I got to watch people improve before my eyes.  

And last, let go of the outcome.  It’s easier than you think.  When you focus on the job at hand, just like I did in the healing I mentioned earlier, that focus keeps you from thinking about your self-doubt.  For example, have you ever focused on a project, such as creating an art piece or learn a new skill, and the time flew.  You may have forgotten your surroundings, your hunger and even discomfort because you were so engrossed in the process.  Healing is much the same way. 

I also let go of expectations when I worked on the gentleman I mentioned earlier.  Then, I could hear, see and feel what I needed to facilitate a successful healing.  And yes, he woke up from his coma better than ever and is still doing well a decade later.

Every healer has their own unique talents and gifts.  Embrace yours.
