BARBARA BUCK: “Hiding The Wounded Healer”

Suffering can appear in our lives with little warning. It startles us out of complacency. One day we are swimming with the tide, just breezing through life, then wham! Disease and discord hit us when we aren’t looking. Suddenly our nice dip in the ocean becomes a terrifying race from the sharks that we had no idea were right below the surface.

Hardship in whatever form it manifests, can cause us to lose faith that life is on our side. It can render us incapable of trusting the ebb and flow of reality as we understand it.

When I was diagnosed with a chronic disease, I was utterly blindsided. I am a healing practitioner, so in the beginning stages of being sick I had faith that I would be more than capable of handling the issue and moving on with my life. I had multiple tools to help me.

I did all the work, taking a mind/body/spirit approach to the disease, but instead of getting better, I got worse. I did everything that I knew how to do as a healing practitioner, but all my knowledge was useless in the face of my wretched suffering.

I stopped trusting the process and began to believe that I must have done something horribly wrong to deserve the physical and emotional trauma that I was experiencing.

To top it all off, I had a belief that no one would want to see a healer with a chronic disease. How could anyone put their faith in me to help them, if I couldn’t even heal myself? A sick healer is a paradox.

I spent a good deal of time stoically putting on my best game face while seeking help from other practitioners behind closed doors. Everyone that I knew had plenty of advice to give me, from why I got sick to what might help me get better.

Conventional medicine, naturopaths, homeopaths, nutritionists, spiritual counselors, acupuncturists, biofeedback therapists, energy healers of all different types; you name it, I tried it. I stopped trusting the healthcare industry to give me answers, but the worst part about it all is that I stopped trusting my ability to help myself.

Suffering makes us feel weak, and in that weakness we become vulnerable. It’s a terrifying experience to recognize that no matter what we’ve been taught to believe, there are some things we don’t have control over. Sometimes when we allow ourselves to step into our vulnerability, we can feel like victims, victims to our bodies, our thoughts, our creative process that’s gone awry, to God, to the Universe, to genetics.

I have vacillated back and forth between all of these things. I blamed my ancestors, the environment, but mostly I held myself accountable for this disease. I have a firmly held belief that I am a co-creator of my reality, so clearly I must have made this happen.

I played the self-blame game very well. I decided that I can’t be trusted to care for myself when I am in this open, susceptible state. The Universe can’t be trusted either because it certainly didn’t have my back and stop me from creating this horrible mistake.

It didn’t even give me fair warning.

When we are raw and wounded, the first thing we throw out of the window is usually trust. The most natural reaction to our loss of faith is to wrap ourselves in a protective shell because we are afraid of what might come next. The world no longer feels safe.

When we become ill, whether it’s emotionally, spiritually, or physically, we tend to try to keep the world at a comfortable distance. Instead of stepping into our vulnerability, we hide it under the guise of courage and dignity.

Society rewards stoicism with praise. If we see a cancer patient, we say “Isn’t she brave? She never complains about the pain she’s in. She just keeps fighting. It’s amazing!” Very rarely do we acknowledge it when someone courageously embraces their vulnerability by taking a step into the darkness of their condition and seeing what gifts lie within the murky depths.

When we voice our fears or expose our vulnerability, it can frighten our loved ones. It makes people uncomfortable when they can see our wounds. It makes them remember their mortality and their own ability to suffer.

We often respond to this behavior by hiding behind a courageous mask, when the truth is that it makes us feel guilt, anger, and shame.

It’s time for us as healers to take that mask off. It is impossible to heal if we don’t allow the shadows of our creation to surface for healing, or try to hide them. Ignoring them is no longer an option.

About the Event

The world is shifting.
The old is making way for the new.

Simple statements. Yet the meaning behind these words can hardly be expressed in the language of spoken thought. Humanity is reaching a point of growth where the understanding of reality will explode into a completely unfamiliar space, where the way the human body understands time and perception will shift into brand new awareness, individual by individual.

In order to begin this shift within ourselves, we must begin to truly search for a language to interact with our bodies along with the reality around us. Accessing ancestral knowledge deep within DNA requires application outside of spoken word and linear thought. It requires true awareness of perception, both inside and outside of the body. Enter the GoldenFrequency Immersion experience, which is knowledge bolstered by action.

Knowledge of self goes much deeper than thought. Knowledge makes way for action; actively shifting what you do not resonate with into what you truly wish to experience.

This knowledge, this level of perception, within and without, holds trauma, ancestral karma, mental thought loops, emotional stagnancy and pain origins. They also hold all the joy, triumph, ancestral dharma, clear thinking, and love origins. As soon as we can become aware of these levels of inner and outer perception, we have the ability to shift.

This is the secret of self mastery.

This is the secret of self activation.

This is how we step INTO the realm of the ‘impossible’ and the ‘supernatural’.

This is how we make the extraordinary real.

Having scoured the planet for modalities, techniques, meditations and energies that activate the human consciousness in the mind-body-spirit-trifecta, we have put together this seven day program that allows us all to begin tapping into these vast resources within us. This wondrous potential to create enough amperage inside of the body, that we can heal ourselves of anything we do not wish to experience has a space to manifest into. A space to create joy and new living memories within these living vessels.

Through personal application, we have streamlined the process, providing the awareness, information and knowledge needed in order to access these “supernatural” abilities innate in every single human capable of focusing, being conscious and having the ability to breathe.

Walking hand in hand with these revelations are spiritual, physical, energetic, emotional and psychological techniques to allow you to open the doorway to taking control of your sovereignty.

As a Sovereign human, pain, emotional trauma, mental discomfort and genetic programs become more optional, meaning as soon as you become aware of them, you can shift them into new emotions, sensation, habits, and energy.

Change your perceptions, change your life!
Come immerse yourself for a full 7 days in our 3rd Annual Golden Frequency Retreat on the sacred mountain, Mount Shasta. Each day we will immerse ourselves deeper and deeper into this luminous esoteric knowledge, while being gently cradled in the healing energy of Sacred Earth.

**Overview of the week:

*The evening of check in, we will have an informal meet and greet. One of the goals of the week is to build community and friendships, to get to talk with others, face to face, who share a common vision and love. The sharing of wisdom and experiences. Ample time is built into the week for bonding, absorbing, realigning, and solitude, if need be.

*Every morning we will begin with a unique morning routine of yoga, Qi Kung and meditation. This routine is designed to take home with you. You can either take the routine whole as a foundation for a great daily practice or take the pieces that fit into your already existent routine of spiritual self care. The choice is yours.

The flow of this morning routine creates the sacred space for our daily lessons and practice. From this foundation building, we will gradually stack practical awareness into direct experience, building a physical energy that can be created, cultured and used at will in your every day life.

*Topics covered will include:

~Meridian flows– beginning and advanced; Clearing your energetic body as a daily practice;

~The Etheric Construct– how to identify it, how to clear it, how to do the inner work to create true sovereignty. On this day, we will have hands on work, where you will work on yourself then practice working with one another.

~Organ Systems– how they connect to each other, support the body, clean toxicity and more importantly, how to physically, energetically and emotionally detox the organs of the body.

~Genetic clearings– How unprocessed trauma, emotional programs and habits pass down through the family line, how to find those connections within yourself and how to clean the family genetics, breaking generational cycles and activating genetic knowledge of talents and wisdom from ancient times.

~Each of the seven days will have an individual focus and flow.

*One afternoon will be set aside for a group adventure and the organic unfolding of energy work in a nature. In former years, we have gone to the river and the lake. This years adventure will be announced closer to the event.

Over the course of the week, we will share laughter and meals, fireside ceremony and song. We will grow in spirit, health, and awareness. We will fill our cups collectively and individually. We will all leave changed for the better for having met one another. The only way out is in!

Squad 3 is ready to activate!!

Golden Frequency Immersion – Squad 3

“This space is dedicated to those intrepid souls who will be attending our third annual Golden Frequency Immersion Retreat in McCloud, California. May this be a place of bonding, community building, room sharing, laughter and road trips. May we all meet as strangers here and say goodbye as family.”

~Feel Free to join the group, find people to room share with (if you find a good match let us know and we can shuffle things to make it work), plot ride-shares and generally just begin to build community. Once the retreat begins, we will close down the group to include only those attending, for us all to continue on our journey together in a safe space of belonging.

This is going to be our best year yet!
Many, many blessings to you and yours,
From our hearts to yours,

Eric & Siara

DAVID ICKE: “Wake Up & Smell The Fascism”

 

DAVID ICKE: “The War On Alternative Everything”

 

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Before You Start Healing And Guiding Others — Heal Yourself First”

The self-help and spiritual community is a brilliant one where one could really grow and become the best version of themselves spiritually and mentally.

But somehow, even this community has become contaminated, not because of any corruption, but because of their lack of self-realization. There have been numerous occasions where I was sitting in front of a healer, a mentor, or a teacher, but they could not really heal me.

Rather, I found that they were wounded themselves and their wounds were reflected through me. What it showed me is that their wounds were affecting me and not in a good way.

Wounded healers can’t really help you much, they don’t practice what they preach. As a result, you only end up being worse than you already were.

It’s common knowledge — you will only trust professionals when they actually do what they are supposed to do. You would not visit a surgeon who knows all the basics of conducting an operation but does not know the practical application of the same, right?

That’s the case with a wounded healer. They know all the theoretical means to make someone spiritually healed, but since they have not practiced healing themselves, they fail to do anything about their patient. Oftentimes, they forget that we have been through this as well.

As a healer, I have been wounded too, and I have understood it when a wounded healer is trying to heal me. Similarly, as a wounded healer myself, I had tried to help others heal as well.

The vibrational energy that a healer has which should envelop a wounded person just doesn’t click. On top of that, if you are a healer and you are wounded, you cannot pose yourself as a healer. That is called fraud and you should not do something like that.

When you are trying to heal someone, or at least, when you are trying to become a healer — you have to ask yourself some important questions. They will be hard ones and you might find it difficult to answer them, but you must:

Have you been wounded before and have you become a healer without addressing the wound?

Are you still suffering from the wound but are trying to pretend that you are not and that is taking up a lot of energy?

These are internal questions that you must ask to finally understand yourself. If the answers are ‘Yes’, then you should stop being a healer for others and try to release your own wounds first.

How Can You Do it

Sit with yourself and go inside. Confront your wound, however painful it turns out to be. Don’t shy away from it. Remove any obstacle that is trying to stop you from transforming. Become free! Become a living experience of what you have always preached.

Don’t go about preaching to others when you need to direct your teachings to your inner-self. I have been in the same position. I became my own quantum alchemist and started to do some inner work to release all my blocks and transform myself.

It was painful and it does not go away immediately. I still work on it. Yes, my business failed during this time, but that’s okay. At least I was true to myself.

Self-Realization

Before you engage in this intensive programme, you have to go through some self-realization. First, you have to ask yourself:

Is it your service time that triggers your wounded self?

Do you have a specific kind of structure that makes you believe you can be a mentor or a healer?

If the answers are yes, then go on with your services.

But if it is no, then stop. Heal your wounded child. Become what you teach first. Transform yourself and then you can transform others.

The world needs healers, but it does not need wounded ones. Be a proper healer and help the world grow.
