Holistic Energy Healing: The Key to Your Success

More fun, love, money and success in 2021.

How can you achieve your goals in 2021? How can you achieve radiant physical and emotional health and wellness? How can you achieve your unlimited possibilities in every area of your life?

The more we remove our energy blocks, the more we are able to attract what we want in life.

The Higher Self is one key to your success. We can achieve amazing health breakthroughs in the treatment of serious illnesses, including Alzheimer's and dementia.

We often seek the solutions to our problems outside of ourselves, but you have the answers inside of you.

For your personal healing journey, see the Resources section below.

What Is the Higher Self?


You are a far more powerful being than you think you are. Your Higher Self is your connection to the universe and to universal wisdom and knowledge.

The Higher Self is a part of our minds which exists at a higher level. It can be likened to standing at the top of a mountain, looking down on your life.

The Abraham Hicks books on the Law of Attraction talk about your Inner Being. This is another way to describe the Higher Self. In other words, we are truly bigger than we think we are.

Say, for example, you are involved in a conflict with someone. At the level of the conflict, you are caught up in it. You are angry and upset, and so is the other person. You can't see a way forward.

Now imagine you are standing at the top of a mountain, looking down on the situation. Suddenly, it looks different. You have more perspective. You can see things you were not able to see before. The Higher Self offers us this higher perspective all the time.

I am still researching the Higher Self in connection with African traditions. I have been told that, in the Yoruba tradition of West Africa, the Higher Self is the same as Eleda, the crown chakra, or Oludumare, the supreme deity.

The Higher Self is a part of us that is connected to the universe. It can help us to find the answer to any question, or the solution to any problem. It is always willing and eager to offer us guidance. The Higher Self will always offer a solution which is best for everyone concerned, and which helps us to achieve harmony and growth, and experience joy and love.

By tapping into this deep inner wisdom, we can learn to rely on our own guidance for healing, and to help us to achieve any goal.

Being True to Ourselves

I encourage you to be true to yourself, be authentic and consult your inner wisdom. Many of my students are afraid to go within to look for answers. We can be so concerned about what others think, and so afraid of standing out, that we ignore our intuition.

We are being pushed and pulled in all different directions. We often look outside of ourselves for answers, when we need to look within.

Working with the Higher Self helps us to honour our inner truth.

Rapid Manifestation


Working with Light

We can work with light in order to manifest the things we want more quickly, and to transform difficult situations. We can bring about amazing results.

When we work with light, we are our Higher Selves.

Visualization, or using imagination, is one of the most powerful, effective things we can do to create brilliant success. So why do so many people struggle with this? To read more, see Why Visualization Doesn't Work.

Violet Flame Healing is one way of working with light, to remove blocks and obstacles so that we can more easiy attract the things we want. See the Resources section below for my Violet Flame Healing Meditation.

Making a Quantum Leap

A quantum leap is not the same thing as making small, gradual changes. A quantum leap is a major leap forward.

To make a quantum leap, use the information in this article to tune into your natural, inner wisdom and guidance.

You will feel scared, unsure of yourself, confused and insecure when you are in the process of making your quantum leap. You may experience very high levels of fear. These are all good signs - they tell you you have come out of your comfort zone. In other words, you are growing.

In order to make a quantum leap, you need to be willing to take a risk. The Higher Self will guide you as to where, when and how to take the risk. It's up to you to take it.

Your confidence will come from your ability to trust your inner guidance. Regardless of what anyone else is telling you, regardless of the advice and guidance - wanted and unwanted - people offer you, your confidence will come from listening to your inner voice and trusting what it tells you.

See the Resources section below for more resources.

Overcoming Blocks and Obstacles

Your Higher self is your connection with the universe In order to open to the universe and receive the things you want, you first need to clear away your blocks and obstacles. Your Higher Self will help you with this process.

You may need to work at a deep level, to overcome your core programming. Again, the Higher Self can help with this.

When you work with your Higher Self doing Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT), you are working at a very deep level. Your Higher Self, using SRT, will clear out all the negative stuff from your past, all the horrible, wounding and damage you have suffered, so that you can move forward in your life.

I will say more about SRT later in this article.

Finding the Job You Want

How the Higher Self Works

Another example: you want to find the answers to questions as to why you cannot find the job you want. After you contact the Higher Self and ask it for help, you will find exactly the book or resource you need which will help you understand your issues and blocks - what is stopping you from achieving your goals.

Or you will switch on the TV or the radio one day and someone will be talking about this issue - or will even mention the name of the ideal company for you to approach about some work. Or you will open a newspaper or magazine, or a friend will mention something to you. Something will happen that will provide you with the answers you need. Whenever you ask the Higher Self for help, you always receive that help. You just need to be open to this help.

Another Example of Working with the Higher Self

In his book Calm for Life, Paul Wilson describes how, when he is working on a book about a specific subject, such as whales for example, he will often receive a phonecall out of the blue from someone who is an expert on just that subject. He also says he knows of thousands of other writers and readers who have had similar experiences. He calls this 'intuition' or the 'unconscious mind', but this is also what happens when we work with the Higher Self.

The Secret about The Secret

Did you know that when Napoleon Hill's book Think and Grow Rich was first published, many references to vibrations were deleted? Mention of vibrations was censored.

Many of us respond to vibrations as sound. I recently saw a TV programme about how cats respond to music. This was fascinating to me, as when I went away recently, I left a CD of The Mozart Effect to be played for my cat every day, to calm her down.

Now that the Abraham Hicks material is being published, many more people are becoming aware of vibrations.

The Real Secret

Here's the real secret: helping others is the key to success.

I once read a piece in the Voice by columnist Ella Henderson. She was talking about how she spent her Xmas, volunteering with Crisis at Christmas, who provide Xmas dinners for homeless people around London.

Henderson remarked that doing this helped her to become aware of just how lucky she is. Many of us could do with this type of reminder. Gratitude and appreciation for the way our lives are now are keys to creating a successful future.

The best way to get what you want is to help others get what they want. For more about this, download "Achieving Success", a free chapter from my ebook The Key to Everything. The link is in the Resources section below.

Connecting with the Higher Self

You may find it difficult to connect with the Higher Self at first. Sometimes, our old emotional wounds or negative thought patterns block our connection with the Higher Self. But the Higher Self is eager to help us. It is waiting for us to ask for help so that it can offer its guidance and wisdom to us. It is worthwhile persisting with our efforts to connect with the Higher Self, our own deep inner wisdom.

Actually, we don't really need to connect with the Higher Self. It is working on our behalf all the time. We just need to let it in and allow it to bring us what we deeply desire.

SRT primarily works by clearing issues from previous lifetimes. The same issues can occur from one lifetime to the next, over and over again, until we clear and remove them. SRT also helps us to remove issues and blocks from the current lifetime.

See the Resources section below for more.

Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT) is a highly effective way to connect with the Higher Self.

Healing the Past

In order to move forward to the life we want, and deserve, to have, we often have to do some healing first. Energy healing can help you to remove blocks that are obstructing you from moving forward towards your goals.

SRT works primarily by removing blocks (called "programs") that are creating problems in your life.

Zhana can help you to heal emotional pain or wounding from the past, or painful memories, so that you can move forward towards a better, brighter and happier future. For more information, go here to contact Zhana for a FREE consultation.

Going It Alone vs. Accepting Help

In the Western world, many people believe we have to go it alone, we have to each go our own way. To a certain extent, this is true and is a valuable and useful approach.

However, we also need to be willing to ask for and receive help. Everyone is connected to everyone else, and everything is connected to everything else.

We need to have a balance between self-power and other-power, and the Higher Self provides that balance.

The Higher Self is our connection to the universe. If we can accept the possibility that there are beneficial higher forces willing, ready and available to help and support us, we will be more open to these higher forces.

I am NOT asking or expecting you to believe this. I am merely suggesting that you be open to the possibility that there are higher forces, and, in fact these higher forces are part of who you are.

Your Higher Self is a part of you that exists at a higher level or dimension.

You are capable of doing AMAZING things. There are no limits to what you can achieve.

SRT: Getting Detailed Information

The Higher Self Gives Detailed Information Using Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT)

The Higher Self can give us very detailed information to help us solve any problem, and to heal the wounded parts of ourselves. Robert Detzler, a Christian minister, has developed a technique called Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT). In SRT, we work under the guidance of the Higher Self with charts that tells us about our old patterns, or 'programs'. Detzler believes that these programs may include material from previous lifetimes, other dimensions, or even parallel universes. Once we have researched these programs with the use of the charts, the Higher Self can clear them.

In SRT, we work with the Higher Self to access Akashic Records - records in which are recorded everything we have ever experienced, throughout all of our lifetimes.

The Akashic Records contain information on any block or program that is creating problems in our lives. Once we have researched the program, the Higher Self then removes it. People have used SRT to clear up relationship problems, money issues, health problems - anything that stands in the way of our happiness and greater good.

You do not have to be a Christian or believe in God to work with the Higher Self.

For more information and useful exercises for working with the Higher Self, see Sanaya Roman's book Spiritual Growth, Being Your Higher Self. This is an Orin book. See the Resources section below for more.

How I Got Involved with SRT

I am always looking for things that can help me and will be positive and beneficial for other people. I first came across the Higher Self when reading books by Orin and DaBen, and I knew what they were saying was true because I had read enough to know that they knew their stuff.

The Higher Self is a part of us that always seeks to find the highest possible solution for everyone in any given situation. And it has access to all of the world's collected wisdom.

I taught this to my students for many years, along with a guided visualization to connect with the Higher Self.

Then, one day, two women came to one of my workshops and told me about SRT. I immediately wanted to know more, started reading the literature and attended a training.

One of the women said to me, "SRT will change your life". And I replied, "I've done a lot of things that were supposed to change my life". But I pursued it nonetheless.

My Experiences with SRT

Why SRT Doesn't Always Work

So, for the reasons I gave above, I had a lot of confidence in SRT, but I was also sceptical.

I soon found that, when I worked with an experienced and highly-skilled practitioner, I got good results. Whenever I had a crisis – and my life seemed to be filled with them – I would phone my SRT guy and he would clear me. He would then pronounced me “cleared”.

However, I soon learned that, however many times he, and other SRT practitioners before him, told me I was “cleared”, my life did not improve in any perceptible or measurable way. Yes, the crisis would be averted. But other than that, nothing really changed.

Then, in 2010, when I was having a particularly difficult time, my SRT guy told me that he had discovered 500 programs which neither he nor anybody else had found up until that time. Apparently, they were in another dimension.

Just to remind you, in SRT, a program is an energy block or a pattern of blocked energy. All of the problems we experience are rooted in these programs.

500 programs is an enormous number of programs to discover and they were archetypal programs, which meant that they were huge.

These 500 programs had all been established by the time I was 16. So they sat there, in my consciousness, wreaking havoc in my life. By 2010, I had been doing SRT for ten years. And, as I said, nobody had found them in all that time.

I was both disheartened and relieved. Disheartened because nobody had found those programs up until then. And relieved because now that my SRT guy had found them, I knew he could clear them.

Freedom from Alzheimer's and Dementia

The Higher Self can provide amazing health benefits through working with SRT.

According to the Alzheimer's Society, dementia robs you of all you value: your memories, your future plans. You will stop recognizing the faces of people you love.

Alzheimer's is believed to be caused by a buildup of proteins in the brain. These may block the ability of brain cells to communicate with each other, and possibly leads to the death of brain cells.

Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia. It is estimated that one in three people will experience dementia during their lifetimes.

If you or a loved one suffers from Alzheimer's or dementia, you know the heartache it can cause.

SRT practitioners routinely clear people of Alzheimer's and dementia when working with SRT. In the future, we will see many more people living to be a health 120 or 130 years of age, since we are clearing people of their causes of death, be it accidental or disease-related.

We can also help relieve the side effects of drugs for the treatment of serious and life-threatening illnesses such as cancer and HIV and AIDS.

You are not expected to believe these claims without proof. Life is an experiment - try it and see for yourself.

See the Resources section below for the Spirit Response Association, where you can find a practitioner who may be able to clear Alzheimer's and dementia. You will also see a link for my article on Finding Solutions with SRT.


Parallel Universes

The Higher Self Accesses Parallel Universes and Other Dimensions

I admit I don't know much about this, and I understand less.

The Higher Self can access parallel universes and other dimensions. We exist on a number of different dimensions. Nobody really knows how many. Nobody really knows what we do in these other worlds.

In SRT, we sometimes find that programs originate in parallel universes or other dimensions. This is not a good thing. Fortunately, the Higher Self can clear these programs. Once it has done so, the Higher Self then seals off the parallel worlds so that other programs cannot bleed through into this world.
