Dr. David R. Hawkins on Self-Healing

banner_slider_01Dr. David R. Hawkins was a renowned psychiatrist and pioneer in the fields of consciousness research and spirituality. In his book “Healing and Recovery” he talked about how he healed himself of a laundry list of diseases. His last book was “Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender.” He suggests that most of us become sick because of unconscious guilt. The first step in self-healing is to embrace forgiveness and release negative emotions.

Hawkins describes a powerful Letting Go process. The first step is to become aware of a feeling. “Let it come up, stay with it and let it run its course.” The second step involves giving up judging it, “feel it without wanting to change it, resist it, vent it, fear it, condemn it or try to make sense of it, or try make it different or do anything about it.”

You focus on letting the feelings be without naming them and surrender any effort to modify it in any way. Let go the wanting to resist the feeling. “It is resistance that keeps the feeling going.”

“When you give up resisting or trying to modify the feeling it will shift to the next feeling and be accompanied by a lighter sensation. A feeling that is not resisted will disappear as the energy behind it dissipates.”

“I watched my body chemistry literally change as I began to change what I was holding about it within my mind and consciousness,” he writes in “Healing and Recovery.” “The basic principle essential to healing from all illnesses no matter what they are, is that we are primarily only subject to what we hold in mind.”

“The body is at the effect of what is held in mind.   If we want to know what we are holding in mind, all we have to do is look at what is going on in the body and observe the behavior, which tells us what we believe.  If we look back into our memory, we often will not be able to recall that we had any such belief system, or that we thought it applied to us.  The fact that it is in our life tell us that it must have been there somewhere in the personal or collective unconscious.”

“The mind has enormous power over every aspect of the body’s functions, right down to the smallest molecule and atom.  It has been discovered that every atom and every molecule within the body is influenced by consciousness levels and beliefs.  Every physiological and chemical transaction that goes on in the body is the result of a blueprint of it within consciousness.  All of them can be changed by changing consciousness.”

And some more gems from him – “In this interconnected universe, every improvement we make in our private world improves the world at large for everyone. We all float on the collective level of consciousness of mankind, so that any increment we add comes back to us. We all add to our common buoyancy by our efforts to benefit life. It is a scientific fact that what is good for you is good for me.”

 Make a gift of your life and lift all mankind by being kind, considerate, forgiving, and compassionate at all times, in all places, and under all conditions, with everyone as well as yourself. This is the greatest gift anyone can give.”
