Do I Have to Believe?
This is a question that is posed to me every now and then in relation to when I am about to perform a healing session on someone. They want to know if they have to believe in it in order for it to work. Most often the answer is "no", but I have been pondering this more and more of late. Do we have to believe in a flower in order for it to exist? Would our ego's non-witnessing of it opening up in full bloom disqualify its existence? The whole "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, did it ever make a sound?" question always irritated me. The fact that no human was available to witness this does not mean that there were no witnesses. Just ask the squirrels and the birds and the local bear, for heaven's sake! They will all tell you stuff like, "Ya, man! It was the weirdest thing. There I was, minding my own business when, BAM!, this tree just falls over, crashing through all the other trees and forcing the squirrels to evacuate and the birds to now build new nests! I mean, Dude! It was totally radical!"
Okay, so the bear really doesn't speak quite like a druggy, but you get the point. Just because we don't believe in something doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I don't believe that there is a planet in the universe that has waterfalls made of milk chocolate, but hopefully one day I might discover that I was wrong about that. Then I will go for a swim! People don't have to believe in energy work to benefit from the application thereof, but why would they spend money having me perform the healing if some small part of them didn't believe it might work? That would be insane. So from now on when I am asked this question, I just might ask, "If you don't believe in it or that it works, why would you waste your money being here at this time?" I can just imagine what some of the expressions on their faces might be.
Many Warm Blessings
