Interestingly, the word “healing” has the same etymological root as “wholeness.” This means that healing in the ultimate sense is achieving wholeness. Patanjali said that all our suffering comes from the ignorance of believing that we are separate from the whole. Rather, to heal the disease of separateness is to integrate into the whole, realizing that we have never been separate; separateness is an illusion. The philosopher Ernest Holmes (1938), who founded a healing tradition called Science of Mind stated: “Healing is not accomplished through willpower but by knowing the Truth (Goswami, 2011, p. 250). What are the implications of understanding healing as wholeness regarding practitioner values, client engagement and health promotion?

As I was sitting down at my computer preparing to write this essay, I noticed an article in the New York Times talking about a huge statistical upswing of “deaths of despair” that has taken place in the USA — from suicide, alcoholism and drug abuse. The rate of these deaths among American adults (ages 25 to 64) has nearly tripled since the early 1990s. More now die from these causes than from cancer.  ( Source: “Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism” by Anne Case and Angus Deaton)

Then I think about the institutions and the philosophies, beliefs and procedures these institutions utilize in their attempts to fix the problem. Our prisons and substance abuse facilities are both part of the criminal justice system. People who end up in our overflowing prisons are the most traumatized and mentally ill members of our “civilized” society. But do we help heal them? No. We keep them isolated and reinforce the belief that they are defective. Once an addict has that label he/she is either outright shunned by society, or placed in treatment centers that promote powerlessness over a disease that supposedly they can never fully recover from.

Allopathic doctors who believe preventative measures only include cancer screenings, blood checks, etc., etc. waiting for a diagnosis of something dire like cancer or diabetes so they now have something to “treat.” Worse, when a patient does incur such a diagnosis, some doctors actually put forth probabilities of death. Where is the compassionate care or preventative measures in all of that?

You can never get to the solution of the problem by focusing on the problem. I like to think of it on an energetic level. Since everything is energy, including emotions, each vibrates at a different frequency. Fear, a root chakra emotion energy, has a lower vibration, if you will, than feelings of love and bliss, higher frequency emotions associated with the crown chakra. How do we promote positive change? We raise our frequencies. Change our limiting beliefs. We periodically dip into the state of consciousness in which we can create quantum jumps. In the words of Amit Goswami , we “do, be, do, be do.”

This brings me to a discussion of Ho’oponopono, which is a little known but extremely powerful self-transformation technique. Ho’oponopono originated from Hawaii and was originally taught by Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona who was a healer.  Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len studied her technique and then used it at his job. He worked as a staff psychologist for Hawaii State Hospital overseeing high-security male criminally insane patients.. These guys committed murders, rapes, assaults and due to their degree of “insanity” were locked into a psychiatric high-security facility. Violence against each other and staff members was common.

Fast forward to 1987 (3 years later) wrist and ankle restraints were no longer used in this facility. Violence almost ceased to exist, only involving mostly new patients. New off-site activities were introduced to former violent patients. The spirit and order in the unit were greatly improved and eventually, the whole unit was closed because there was no need. People just got improved, healed and released or moved into other non-violent wards. This is all well documented, described by multiple witnesses and personnel.

According to Dr. Hew Len: He did not do any therapy or counseling with patients. He practiced Ho’oponopono on a daily basis that created a transformation within a most challenging environment. When Joe Vitale met with Dr. Hew Len and asked him how exactly he managed to heal those violent patients without actually seeing each of them in person, his answer was: “I didn’t heal them. I healed the part of myself that created them.”  (Source cited:  Zero Limits , by Joe Vitale)

To me, this is the quantum realization, we as a species must make: We are 100% responsible for EVERYTHING. We (I) created it. We (I) can un-create it.
