No Pain, No Gain…
Do you believe that hard work is the way to gaining your health? That by pushing harder, doubling even tripling your efforts, while doing your Healing Codes, will get you to your goal faster?
If 3 codes a day are doing good, then 6 would be even better right?
That is the way we have been taught. If you work hard, then you’ll get ahead. In some cases, this can work great. Being known as a hard worker or a great earner is a plus in life!
But I need to ask you a question. Are you doing your codes more often, because of old programming that is telling you that you HAVE to?
Maybe you have beliefs like “No Pain, No Gain.”
But how does this work when it’s toward healing?
Yes if you have had an injury, you may need to go through physical therapy for a time and that does require some work.
But what about just general overall healing?
I want you to think about The Healing Codes and how you are using those.
While it’s true that doing more codes may be helpful in your progress, it does depend on the ‘WHY’ you are wanting to do more.
Like I said before if it’s tied to old beliefs, or you are trying to force your healing by pushing it through harder, then you are actually on a slower healing path.
I have just posted an article on ThehealingCodes.com site called A Big Clue In Using The Healing Codes, which you can read HERE. It explains how letting go of detachments is way more helpful than pushing or resisting when it comes to healing. In my opinion, this applies to any goal or expectations you may have.
Many people have the impression that the harder they work for their healing, the faster and more effective it will be.
It’s very different with The Healing Codes. When you relax more, everything unfolds much easier. When you push it, you’re creating more resistance. Definitely NOT what you want.
What I have seen is that when you relax and ease away from your expectations, you actually are carried at a higher speed to your end results.
AND… In a lot of cases, you actually exceed your expectations.
If you are finding it hard to relax and not ‘push’ or ‘allow’, I would start with a Healing Code or a Custom Healing Code on that need to push feeling.
I realize that some may feel that focusing their healing code session on a something besides their actual goal or desire may be wasting time.
I’m here to tell you, that those seemingly unrelated feelings, could be what is blocking your healing in a big way.
So taking some time to code on those issues first could actually speed your progress with greater impact.
Sometimes the biggest blocks are what we least expect.
I hope that you take some time to explore the areas in you that may unfold some great pearls for your journey.
From the time I started training with weights – in my 20s – until 5 years ago- I believed firmly in the ‘No Pain, No Gain’ paradigm. Weight training was just the metaphor for how I lived in all areas of my life.
It wasn’t until I started reading the Hicks books that I was able to make a chink in my armor. Even though I have worked diligently and continue to do so, I still hear that little voice inside of me sometimes saying ‘Not enough. Work harder. And yes, it’s meant to be difficult’. Thank goodness that today I have the tools to dismantle those thoughts within a few moments after they invade my consciousness.
Thanks for continuing to remind people that life is NOT meant to be painful. 🙂 Fran
The right balance is so important, right? Good for you in recognizing what needs to be worked on.
Glad you where able to stop by.
Take Care and have a great week
Very insightful Melissa. It makes perfect sense that trying to ‘force’ healing will bring the opposite effect to the one we desire. Pushing, or resisting don’t seem to be energies conducive to a healthy happy experience. 🙂
Sometimes it can be hard to remind myself of these things as well. Old programming will crop up. I’m just glad I know what to do when that happens 😉
I loved you post on the lovely inspiring quotes. Just what I needed thanks!
Enjoy your week!
I have tried various kinds of healing work but have not tried Healing Codes. What you said about relaxing has gotten me intrigued. I certainly agree that putting in resistance tends to make things worse. We just can’t force healing to happen!
Yes Evelyn, When we have a cut we don’t do backflips to make it heal, it just does.
Our bodies where designed to heal and the less stress we put on it the quicker and more thorough it can be. I agree forcing doesn’t feel right to me at all.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. I appreciate it 😉
This is perfect, Melissa. And so true.
When we force ourselves, we create these levels of judgment on ourselves. When we’re emotionally healing, of course we’ll have to experience those emotions again and again.
Many people block their emotional healing by rejecting their emotions. They’re not only depressed… they’re depressed about being depressed! They push away the depression. They become depressed about being depressed about being depressed!
And then we’re in a full scale crisis.
I think the most important thing we can have is trust. Trust that, when we’re not pushing full speed and holding ourselves together so tightly, we won’t fall apart. Trust that we’re built to heal. Trust that it will be okay.
Yes I agree Vironika,
Trust is such an easy word to say, yet so difficult for so many to really have. My hope is that in this beautiful time, as our eyes are opening wider, we will begin to see more clearly.
Our natural state is a healing state and as you said, “Trust that it will be okay.”
Thanks so much for being here. I love your thoughts on these things. Beautiful.
This is the first time for me to hear about The Healing Codes, Melissa. (…Do I live in a cave or something?) But I’ll check out your page on it.
I love your premise of challenging the thought, “No pain, no gain.” It’s been so ingrained into us, that we just accept it as true. But striving doesn’t always work. Remember that other little saying, that was so popularized in the 70’s, by those cool bumper stickers? “Let go, and Let God”. It’s not forced. The change, the healing comes… sometimes even in the most unexpected ways. Great post!
Yes, despite even best efforts you can’t push a rope. But you get to feel like you’re at least trying to accomplish something. Melissa, great work of capturing the many ways we like to fool ourselves into thinking we’re doing the work when we’re really not. Effort in does not mean results out … the results we expect that is.
