In this Episode We Canvas:
Finding Out She was a Healer
She didn’t actually know she was a healer and found out she was by mistake. She went to see a therapist and loved the idea of being one. When she did become one, she realized that all her clients were impressed by what she could do. Her ability to detect exactly what plagues her clients’ health has always enabled her to help them heal. She highlights the great power of the mind in healing and teaches people to dialogue with their minds to tap into that power.
“It’s a wonderful thing that the mind can create miracles in the body” – Marisa Peer
Healing = Self-Healing
Through her Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT), she helps her clients heal by first of all finding out the root of their health issue and demonstrating it to them so they can understand what the source of their issue is, and then working on fixing it. That way, her clients become part and parcel of their healing process. When she has a client who’s in a lot of pain for example, she gets rid of the pain first, and then gets to know her client better so she can understand why they have it.
“Understanding is power and it’s very hard to fix what you don’t understand” – Marisa Peer
Navigating Through Relationships
Typically, when we form beliefs about ourselves, we tend to go out into the world to find people who match our beliefs, and it’s critical for all of us to look into ourselves and find out what we believe and feel about ourselves so we can start changing our lives and relationships for the better. It’s when we don’t feel so good about ourselves that we form the opinion that we need to earn love, run after it, chase it, or even buy it, and that’s a classic mistake because love is not to be run after or earned.
“We make the belief, the belief makes us” – Marisa Peer
Writing a New Script
When it comes to starting a family and having kids, it’s important for a person to first change their relationship with themselves. It’s also important to understand that children are dependent and they idolize their parents no matter what. A child can do anything to feel that their parents love them, and so parents must be focused on always making sure that they tell their children how much they love them as they are.
“To survive on the planet, a baby must find connection while avoiding rejection” – Marisa Peer
Impacting the Planet
Marisa does believe that if we all collectively work on bettering ourselves, we could significantly impact the planet positively. She has worked with many schools on the issue of bullying, and both parents and teachers have committed to working on it. A lot of the schools have implemented the “I am Enough” policy where children are required to among other things make an “I am Enough” placard for their desks. Parents are also making sure that the same is done around the breakfast table. That has significantly led to a reduction in bullying incidents. The same approach would make a huge difference in the world if people applied it in every aspect of life in general.
“We should all be able to feel good about ourselves” – Marisa Peer
Rules of Our Mind
The mind learns by repetition and so it’s fundamental for anyone trying to adopt a certain habit that’s important to them to do it repetitively. Every word we say and every thought we have is a blueprint that our minds and bodies work to make real, and so we must be very careful what we say about ourselves. We can change our reality by changing our language.
“People say the strangest expressions and decide it’s real” – Marisa Peer
Beliefs And Healing
Research on sleep shows that if one actually tells themselves that they’ve had enough sleep, they actually operate as if they’ve had enough sleep. If one thinks that the food they’re eating is full of nourishment, they function better. Those two instances demonstrate how powerful our beliefs are and how they interact with healing. Another great example is when a parent offers to kiss their child’s pain away. The child believes that the pain will be physically kissed away and it actually does go away.
“If you think you’ve had enough sleep, you’ll function better” – Marisa Peer
Marisa’s Message of Inspired Evolution
Marisa’s insights on the mind, relationships and life in the world that we live in are just so super amazing, and she shares easily digestible and understandable stories to help us learn how we can implement her teachings to positively change our lives and the lives of the people around us. Healing is simple and we can all take action towards that by believing we are enough which then simplifies the therapy that is necessary for that healing. I hope we can all go out and share the awesome mantra of “I am enough” and together we can make the world a better place to live in.
“Therapy shouldn’t be complicated. Healing should be simple” – Marisa Peer
