The thought of phobias brought me to a memory of the movie JAWS.
I can clearly hear the music while the woman is swimming in the ocean. Dum Dum…Dum Dum…Dum Dum Dum Dum Dum Dum… Ok, you get it. When I was very small, I snuck out to the living room and watched this movie without my parents knowing I was there. Not good I tell you, not good at all.
This started a lifelong pattern of the fear of water for me. Not only ocean water but lakes too. I didn’t mind swimming pools because I was relatively sure there was nothing fishy going on there.
Living landlocked most of my life didn’t make this a big issue.
We have a boat and I was content watching everyone else get into the water at the lake. This didn’t become an issue until we were in Maui a few years back and I decided I wanted to snorkel. Everyone was raving about how cool the beautiful vibrantly colored fish were. I had to see them and didn’t think it would be a big deal. I would just swim out a little way, catch a few fish views and swim back. No biggie, right?
Not right! I got a little way out and thank God my husband was with me, as I had a panic attack. If he wasn’t a big guy I could have probably taken him down. Luckily he didn’t have to knock me out, and we made it back to shore.
A few months ago we went back to Maui.
I love that place! Our family decided to go on a whale watch/snorkel cruise. Out on the deep sea, everyone was getting into the water to snorkel. I waved my hand to the man handing the gear out and my husband looked at me and said, “Yeah right, seriously?” Not thinking too much about it I said, “Yeah, what’s the big deal?”
I got my gear, walked down the ladder with my daughter, and started swimming out a way. I didn’t notice at the time my husband lurking close by-lol. At the point of being very far from the boat, I stopped. I mean stopped! and I remembered I was afraid of sharks! I put my hands on my chest and asked myself, “Am I OK? Am I going to lose it here? Is a shark going to come and…?” I carefully looked left then right, no sharks! And I felt my chest again, was I going to panic?
I felt FINE! I wasn’t worried at all! My heart jumped, but not from fear, it jumped for JOY! I was so excited. My 10-year-old daughter and I swam around looking at the beautiful fish. My husband came up and told me how proud of me he was. I had the best time ever and I can’t wait to snorkel many more times in my life.
What I want to explain it, I never used The Healing Codes specifically on my fear of sharks or water. Not even close.
The fear cleared while I was working on other issues, and this is a great example of that. The Healing Codes work on so many more aspects of your life than you even realize. Its fingers spread out and slowly take down things you may never even consider healing. What a beautiful tool we have here. One that knows where to go and what issue needs to be worked on next. How much more simple and easy could it be? Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
