posticon Should Healing Be Easy? by John Cali

Posted on   by

Last week’s newsletter article, “The Rut of Earthly Reincarnations,” generated a lively discussion at our discussion group.

The discussion turned into an interesting conversation about healing. I’m paraphrasing here, but one of the participants said she was sometimes reluctant to use a healing tool called EFT because “healing should not be that easy.”

The response from another member clearly articulated what I think, judging from the work I’ve done with Spirit over the years, is a common perspective:

We received mixed feedback on our two most recent newsletters, “Feeling Good” and “All Roads Lead Home.”

The feedback ranged from “unsettling” and “maybe you are after feedback from conflict” to “Thanks to Spirit for never wavering.”

Then there was the letter from my good friend of many years, George Ball. Here’s George’s letter:

As you may know, the American entertainer and television game show host, Merv Griffin, died August 12, 2007. He’d lived a good, long life. Like all of us, he had his challenges. But he always saw his life and his work as one and the same — a big game. He radiated that wonderful energy of always having fun and feeling good.

I read an interesting recent article on addiction in the Washington Post a month or so ago.Read more
