The Importance of Consistency in Healing

Consistency is very important in healing, but what does this really mean?

If we are trying to improve any aspect of our life, we are told that we need to make good habits. This new habit must become a regular part of our daily routine. From a logical standpoint, as long as we are consistent with anything, we should see improvements in whatever it is we are trying to change.  We trust our healthcare professionals when they say this to us. We trust our and fitness experts and nutritionists when they say this to us too. Why then are we so reluctant to trust our healers when they tell us this?  Why is consistency in healing different from consistency in anything else?

People treat their cars better than they treat their bodies. For example, we make sure that we get regular oil changes on a consistent basis.  We do regular maintenance on the car because we know it’s important as it ensures the car runs smoothly.  Aren’t we worth regular maintenance?

When it comes to healing, some people think that it should be a one-and-done situation. They want to have one session because they just don’t have time to go weekly, biweekly, or even monthly. They have no interest in consistency or regular maintenance.  As a healer, I’ve come across people that are expecting 40 or 50 years of trauma to be fixed in one session. This is not realistic. If it took decades to create, it will take time to re-create.

Consistency means having regular sessions. Now of course, this can come down to availability of time and finances. But it can be done. Consistency means having a regular healing session more often than once a year or every six months. At first, consistency may mean coming weekly or every two weeks. When you begin your healing journey, more consistent sessions are needed. However, with time and effort on your part, those sessions become more infrequent. 

Additionally, take responsibility for your healing. This means you must go beyond wanting things to improve.  You need to take action to make the changes happen.  If your healer makes suggestions for you, do what they suggest.  Be consistent and take the time; you are worth it.

And let me be clear about healing.  Healing work is not all love and light. In fact, it can be messy, ugly, and difficult. However, when you put the work in, the rewards are amazing! You become a new you. It’s the you that you were always meant to be. You can live the life that you want to live, but you must do the work first.
