Why talking is important

Have you ever noticed that when you need a friend they always say “Tell me about it”?

A lot of people spend years, maybe their entire lives NOT talking about something, but it can be really valuable to “get it off your chest”.

In ThetaHealing, you test yourself for a whole load of beliefs and we give you tools to help you shift the beliefs that are not for your highest-and-best. But sometimes, just reading them out loud is enough for you to shift them yourself. Your conscious mind can say “No, I don’t believe that, I don’t want to hold on to that”. You can go back over the same list of beliefs and test yourself again and some of them may have cleared on their own.

Oftentimes you may have to do some more work (called Digging in ThetaHealing) to find out the underlying reason WHY you held that belief, but again this is often just talking about it.

I had a student in class a while back who was nervous about doing her first session on a fellow student; she didn’t know where it was going to go and the uncertainty was stopping her from trying. I said “Just talk to her”.

Using the “Seven Ws” is a really good way of finding out more information. e.g.:

  • Who told you that?
  • What will happen if…?
  • Why do you do that?
  • Which decision do you regret?
  • Where does this come from?
  • When did this first happen?
  • How does this impact you?

Never underestimate the power of the spoken word.

One thing I tell my students is "If you think you know at the outset where a ThetaHealing session is going to go ... you're probably wrong." This is unnerving for people new to Theta' and one of the reasons that Dig Deeper is now mandatory ... it's just practice.
