Vulnerability

There is an old Chinese proverb “He who asks a question appears as a fool for five minutes, he who never asks a question is a fool for life.”

Many people have thanked me for being willing to ask questions in classes where I have been a participant. I always “felt” a bit stupid for asking, so was quite surprised when this first started to occur. Over the years I have recognized that they were thanking me because I was willing to appear as a fool for a few minutes in order to get the change I desired and willing to ask those questions that others could not put words to. This is vulnerability. This where, no matter what it takes, you are willing to appear foolish, you are willing to receive the judgements of everybody else to get the change that you desire.

I am so blessed that so many people have been willing to step in to that space of vulnerability and be wiling to ask questions in classes and on broadcasts. In the asking those people are actually willing to receive an awareness of where they are sticking themselves and their body’s and then they have more possibilities from which to choose. Possibilities that prior to the question were not freely available.

Ask and you shall receive is one of the laws of the universe. Imagine that! All you have to do is ask a question and more possibilities start to show up. Now it is up to you what you choose. Some may choose more sickness, some choose management, some may choose to die, others may choose cure, and others may choose to a totally different reality.

No one choice is greater than the other, no choice is wrong. No choice is wright. Imagine if you were never wrong.

Take for example the lady on my recent radio show “Curing the Incurable” with Dr Pat. On National radio she was willing to talk about the guilt that was hounding her and asking how she could change this. After a few questions we were able to run a few processes with her and she immediately started to feel lighter about her life. You can list to the replay HERE.

Does that mean that to make the change you have to call in a news crew from the ABC. No, what I am suggesting here is that there is a power and a potency in vulnerability that when combined with question will allow you to have a different possibility. You can start asking questions right away you don’t need an audience, the whole universe is waiting to receive you if you are wiling to be vulnerable.

Third element of Healing is vulnerability

I hear you all quaking in your boots as I mention the word vulnerability. And that is because most people have idendified this term with suffering. Most people have had some sort of experience where they have been vulnerable and then been shot to pieces when they were.

Like the time you you stepped up in class and tried something new and¬† the teacher tore you to shreds, or when you opened your heart to another and they made you suffer…

That’s the point of creation, where we decided that vulnerability equates to not nice things happening. The not nice things happening then becomes our justification and reason for not being vulnerable.

To deal with this we start to build a wall from our decision never to be vulnerable again and we stop being vulnerable with ourselves and our bodies.

Vulnerability is not seen in this reality, by that I mean our society, as valuable. It is often misidentified as being weak. If you buy this point of view, this too will create more walls to being vulnerable. And as vulnerability is part of natural beingness you start to cut your self off from that.

What if vulnerability actually had a power to it, what if you were to be so vulnerable with your body that you had no barriers to it. You would then feel everything the body could gift to you.

Next time an ant crawls over you, instead of flicking it off, allow it to walk across your naked skin, feel it intensely. Vulnerability is being like the open wound with out any cover on it. You can feel it intensely. Have you ever noticed how a wound can heal when you are vulnerable enough to allow it to be what it requires?

This does not mean you should go round opening you heart to strangers, or not put a dressing on a wound, what it means is to be vulnerable enough¬† to ask questions to yourself that you don’t want to hear the answers to, to feel your body intensely and to acknowledge where you have been less than nice to it.

I have some neat processes and tools to assist in this, but you have to be willing to ask the question.

What else is possible?
