Am I truly invisible?
I’ve decided to write a piece that is a departure from my usual in which I talk a bit about my own personal self. In this I am elucidating an example of how the psychological/spiritual healing I practice and my Zen practice fit together so perfectly to the benefit of both.
After a Zen program and dharma talk where I attend Zen services there is always a question and answer period. On one occasion I was raising my hand attempting to be called on. I had a question but I could not get called on no matter how I persisted. This has happened many times and typically it was given no more serious consideration other than my usual acknowledgment that I feel subjectively on many levels as though I am invisible. But this time I began to question if I was truly invisible in a much larger sense. I began questioning because the feeling that I am invisible is so very, very familiar.
As I work with muscle testing in my energy work, I asked my innate deepest wisdom if it was objectively true. Am I in fact invisible to others in a way that is much broader than just my subjective, hyper sensitivity rooted in a very old wound to my psyche? Not surprisingly my muscle testing responded that I was indeed invisible.
In fact this was 90% responsible for most of my professional and financial difficulties throughout my life. It explains, at least superficially why marketing has never, and I mean never, helped me. Now in truth there have been many more aspects to this particular difficulty but at this point in time it accounted for 100% of all remaining and until now overlooked obstacles to my professional progress.
Applying my energy healing it was a half hour fix.
What more is there to say except Wowza!!!
I include this here as I know that many suffer from this very same phenomenon and once uncovered is such an easy fix
