I love to dissect my experiences and I really had to think about this one.
In the flash of a second last night, I found myself sitting on my bed, grabbing my foot and small toe in particular and grimacing in pain. I had caught it on my mattress frame somehow and it did some real damage.
My thoughts darted back to some years ago when I injured first one foot, and then the other as soon as the first one was healed.
I found myself wondering if I had “foot karma” to balance and if there was something I needed to see that required another hard knock to get my attention.
I was totally focused on the problem and wondering if I had created energy that had caused this to happen.
And then I shouted to myself inside of my head…
“STOP! I’m doing the opposite of what happened when I healed my severed fingertip overnight.”
I realized I was thinking about the problem instead of actively taking part in creating the solution.
By then it had already registered that I had really hurt it so I had to act fast.
I grabbed a tube of arnica gel and massaged it in as I visualized White Light streaming from my fingertips and hands.
An incredible experience years ago showed me the power of projecting White Light from my heart and we know healing energy can be measured coming from hands too.

I imagined the Light enhanced gel soaking into my swollen little toe that was turning black and blue by now. I saw it as healthy and with normal coloring.
When I was finished, I laid down but it was hard to ignore the throbbing pain. It has been very cold where I live and Tennessee declared a “state of emergency” with ice storms, interstate problems and dangerously cold weather. So it had been feeling pretty cozy to sleep under a pile of extra blankets. But tonight, the weight on my foot caused it to throb even more.
So I put all of my focus on the pain, just like had heard neuroscientist Sara Lazar of Harvard University explain to do. Or I should say that it’s in my mind that I first heard it from her although I can’t remember exactly where or when. But I discovered that it works so I always remember that part for sure. It does seem to lessen the pain.
I got out of bed in the morning and could hardly walk on it but continued to visualize its healing. I took a shower and imagined the water as White Light washing away the pain and healing the swelling. I imagined being able to walk on it normally. Then I did my morning meditation ritual and continued with my intention of healing it.
All I know for sure is that hours later, I am walking on it pretty normally and it no longer hurts. I took a picture of it just because I know this sounds crazy. And sometimes it even sounds crazy to me. So I like to have something to remind me that it was real.
I REALLY don’t want to show my foot and toe online but I do have the picture of it that I took just a little while ago if you really want to see it.
It’s not as bad as some of my capers but the last time I did this to my toe and didn’t try to heal it, I had to cut the side out of my shoe to be able to leave my house for the next month.
It’s another example of hurting myself and healing myself, again, although we know it isn’t me at all. It is the power of the Light, intention and maybe even tricking my brain and causing the placebo effect.
I’m only sharing this because I believe we are meant to live as empowered human beings. We aren’t taught to develop and use our gifts so somebody has to talk about it. I think I need to do my part because I seem to have enough things that happen in my life to keep new examples flowing.
Have you noticed all the drug ads intended to create fear about the symptoms you could get? If they can keep people focused on images of the symptoms, chances are much better for them that more people will get the symptoms. Their marketing plan is to keep you focused on the problem and then to “ask your doctor” about their solution. They’re creating sales reps that they don’t have to pay. How convenient for them.
Drugs are great when you need them. But we don’t need to imagine needing them when we don’t!
There really is something to the power of healing with the White Light, a clear intention and maybe even a little of the placebo effect. Even when drugs are the best thing for you, there is no reason not to use these other techniques too.
